I have a Line 6 POD HD500x and a Mesa Boogie Mark IV. I play a Gibson Studio, Gibson P90 Midtown and a Fender Tele (see pic). I play in a cover band. What is the BEST way to configure the two pieces of equipment? Sorry for the NUBIE question, I have looked all over the threads here and nothing really answers my questions. Ideally i would like to set up amps and effects accurately to the bands i am covering. This means i would have to set up a patch for each song in my setlist on the POD (which i have no problem doing since i have the time to program EACH song in the setlist) OR simply get a nice generic tone consisting of the following: Clean, Overdriven clean, Rock n Roll type Distortion. Along the lines of Mike Campbell, Pete Thorn, Neil Schon, Kings of Leon etc. I guess i can copy the patch to different presets and add effects pertain to the song as needed. I think this is the easier way but I'm a stickler for accuracy in my playing and in my sound... In other words... I DONT WANT TO BE PLAYING AN 80'S METAL TONE FOR HOTEL CALIFORNIA. Sorry for the essay but if you guys have any ideas drop me a note. Thanks Hickdood
