This might be a slightly stupid question but I can't figure it out. I have been running a dual amp settup (GK sim with big ampeg cabs) for my bass and I think it sounds really good. The setup is basicly to different paths (effect wise) with a pair of the same amp model, with the exakt same settings. I did this settup just for keeping some clean signal when using distortion. The downside to this setup is that it takes a lot of DSP and if I want to make some slight adjustments, I have to do it twice and thats a pain in the lollipop. So I thought that the I would get the same result when keeping the dual paths, but removing one amp block and placing the one left right behind the mixer. Now I'm able to have the same settup but without the mentioned hussle right? As this sounds VERY simular to the dual settup something is missing and I can't place my finger on it. It just doesn't sound as "full". Why is that? It should sound the same when compensating for the loss of volume? I have the mixer panned full left and right, and tried to compensate for the volume change with the channel volume and even master volume, but it still sounds different. Is the answer to this just that two of the same amps togheter sounds better than just one, or am I missing something here? /Danne
I'm new to the POD HD 500 and all its capabilities. I have a general understanding of the guidelines for chaining effects pedals to run through an amp but I'm not sure I fully understand the pros and cons of putting fxs pre- or post- of the amp along the signal chain in the POD HD 500. Can someone break this down for me?
