Hi Guys, I am currently using my POD HD500X connected to a PA active speaker (12", Behringer) and have no complains with it... But I've been thinking for a while on trying it with a valve amp. I have found online a few people using a Blackstar HT-5, little and affordable valve amp, and they seems to be happy with the sounds. - Is it worth the mess of the 4CM, modify all my patches, ... for the 'valves'? Will be noticeable the difference? Or is still straight to PA the best amplification for the POD? I play mainly modern progressive rock/hard rock, so I will be using cleans as much as distortions. Cheers.
Hi, I've just acquired a POD XT live, I'm using it for practice through my Blackstar HT-5, there are so many variant ways to connect these two units, has anyone any suggestions, mainly conecting the XT between the send and returns, or bypassing the front of the amp and just connecting the XT to the return and use the XT as the input device, either way there are two adjustments that I'm not sure about: a) On the XT is a line/amp output switch, what should that be set to when connecting to the Blackstar's return b) On the Blackstars return is a 4db/10db switch what should that be set at. I would like to set all the patches to neutral, ie no amps/effects ( like a bypass ) any ideas on the best way of doing this, regarding levels, ie bypass levels and amp levels, tis all a bit daunting really and any help would be welcome.
