Hey guys. I received a Ned Steinberger NTXa5 electric cello from my awesome husband for Christmas to replace the acoustic I had been borrowing to play at our church and various youth concerts. After a ton of research, I discovered that both Simply Three and 2Cellos (on YouTube) use the 500x to process their electric cellos to reproduce that acoustic woody resonance that makes a cello sing for their live concerts. Simply three's cellist uses the exact same cello also. i scooped up a used 500x but thus far have been completely unable to get any sort of acoustic tone out of it. Everything sounds electric, nasal, and like I'm playing a duet with a bad French horn. Messing with the EQ parameters has not been successful, though I have never messed with EQ before so there is a very strong chance I have no clue what I am doing. At all my venues I go direct to FOH and was hoping the POD would help me keep the pile of gear I have to lug around to a minimum, meaning no amp. The electric cello finally allows me to fit through doorways again. All the venues do a silent stage since there is no other way for me to be able to hear myself, even with nice in ear monitors. i want to play with all the other fun effects this thing has to offer but I must nail down a good acoustic tone first. Otherwise I just blew a ton of $. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
