    Effects loop and IR block placement

    Does the IR block go directly after the amp+cab block. I have external drives > input of hx stomp>amp+cab block. Then I split signal to effects loop. Out of send> external verbs and delays> back to stereo return > IR block> stereo Something isn’t sounding right with my drives...almost like in a tin can...i can’t eq my way out of it...I see all these videos of nice tones but I can’t get it...I can’t get a nice bite on my drives it’s flat and smooth..no attack to my notes Any suggestions on why?...something in my signal path?

    Best signal chain and tone

    Where does the IR block go?...right after the amp+cab block.? Also where does the effects loop block go. I run analog drives into the hx stomp. I use the effects loop for externaL modulation. My drives don’t sound to great. I don’t know if my signal chain is messed. I can’t seem to eq my way out of tin can over drives Any help or suggestions would be great

    Hx fx- impulse response questions

    Im new to the hx fx and could really use some recommendations and help regarding impulse responses. I run my guitar through a bbe sonic maximizer and then through a vox Ac50 ( with upgaded tubes, and V30’s :) ) I run the hx fx in 4cm. My band rehearses D.I. Into the mixer ( drummer plays a roland TD30, so its really nice) but its still important for me to use the AC50 as the tone is incredible and regardless of the fact we all use “ in ears” live and in rehearsal im using a moderate amount of amp volume on stage and blending it with my D.I. Signal into the P.A./monitors. Thats why i was really excited to use impulse responses. Heres where i can use some help/recommendations and opinions. 1. Ive played around with placing the IR block before and after the Fx loop 1 block. so far I prefer it placed after, but i cant really tell much of a difference. Anyone have any info or experience with this? what is your preference? 2. I downloaded a bunch of IRs . I have some “speaker” ones (the allure pack) and those all seem pretty useable. One of the best results ive had so far is the V30 IR (from allure) I have the mix set to 100 and the volume somewhere around -6.5 -8.0 db I also find it totally necessary to use the low cut feature as the bass frequencies easily start to overdrive. Changing IR,s the confusion/frustration/doubt starts to set in. Heres some examples- Acoustic guitar resonace ir’s i have , including this hollowbody ir i have sound absolutely funky. Maybe they are crappy idk but its led me to believe that IR’s work best emulating something similar to your sound. I mean i run v30s out of my cab. So running a V30 IR after my effects loop block seems to make my D.I. Signal sound alot more like my amp and that is a wonderful result. but trying to make it sound like a jazz box, or a hummingbird acoustic, is experimental and probably wont yield good results. However, i did load a gods cab (its like a 6505 with a mesa cab and a sm7b mic) it needed a ton of low cut. And it really overdrove my signal easily. But at -8.0 db lvl with 100mix and a low cut, when i added a distortion, i got a killer sound. I mean awesome metal tone. some feedback or personal experience on this would be a godsend. 3. So to some it up into some more direct questions. whats with the overdriving? are some of these ir,s supposed to be distorted? where as some are just clean cabinet/mic “simulations” (or moments in time whatever you wanna call it) -8db seems awful low for a level setting should i be looking elsewhere? what kind of mix and level do you guys use? Is 2048 samples always better? Anything pertaining to using impulse responses with hx fx in 4cm especially settings would help alot. If in the end i can properly add an IR to all my presets resulting in my DI sounding more realistic and just having better tone altogether i would be very happy. just dont know if im doing it right.
  4. I am trying to use my flextone duo effects loop but when I plug in the TRS cables into an effect through the effects loop, it goes from playing on both speakers to one speaker. Same with headphones if I have the headphones plugged in while using the effects loop. If I plug a TRS cable into the send and directly into the receive it works on both speakers. What am i doing wrong or is this by design?

    HX Stomp - dual mono effects loops?

    I recently bought an HX Stomp. I had hoped to be able to connect the effects loops to two, independent chains in order to use the HX stomp to control routing to one or more outboard distortion pedals (KoT, heavily modded BD2). Here’s what I tried: HX stomp - stereo send jack- 1/4” TRS- dual 1/4” TS - each of these connected to inputs of my overdrive pedals. Output from pedal A-HX stomp return L, output from pedal B-HX stomp return R. I was able to get the signal routing, but - it’s still stereo, and thus, only affecting one side of the path. I had hoped that I would be able to treat everything “before the amp emulation” as mono, and then it becomes stereo after the amp/cab blocks. Worst case scenario, I was hoping for a utility type block that would sum the FX Loop L (or FX loop R) into a mono / dual mono signal, if placed immediately after an FX loop. I assume my problems are exacerbated since I am using HX stomp in stereo, rather than just having a single mono cable out. So, what’s the trick to this - is there an easy solution, or should I just stick the dirt in front of the HX? It would be nice to leave the dirt on all the time and control switching at the HX (in conjunction with any additional midi controllers or foot switches I may add in the future).
  6. Hello all! I have been attempting to use my favorite pedal, Mr. Black Supermoon Chrome reverb in the effects loop of my Helix. However, no matter where I place it in the chain on the Helix, it creates a ton of muddy distortion in the chain. I have used it at anywhere from 100% mix to 40% mix, changed the boost of the effects loop from +0.0db to -10.0db and nothing seems to change. What can can I do to make it sound better with the Helix patches?
  7. I'm sure there's a reason for it, but it just seems like the effects loop shouldn't take up a block on HX(I'm assuming it does on helix too?) since surely it's just routing that signal through the loop rather than using any processing power to make any effects? Maybe I'm just missing something, but does anyone know why it needs to take up a block and cant just be added in the signal chain as an 'extra' block just to reroute the signal? Edit: I don't think I explained this that well so I'll see if this makes more sense. I'm using the hx where you can have 9 blocks in use for effects or loops. Assuming all blocks are in use with effects, if I want to add in my loop then I need to overwrite an effect I currently have in the chain. My post is querying whether the added effect on the processor in the unit when using the effects loop is really enough to justify having to effectively lose 1 effect to accommodate the loop. Hope that makes more sense

    Synth via efx loop return

    Trying to use my synth with my hx effect via efx loop return. My bass is the main input so it's going to the input in jack but i have a twelve step foot pedal board midi connected to a korg volca fm. The out of the volca is going into efx loop one return. Shouldn't this work?
  9. Hello, I have a two channel Frenzel amp head. Each channel has it's own inputs and full controls and can operate simultaneously. It has an effects loop on the back with 1 send and 1 return. I would like to use the expression pedal on my Helix floor unit to fade between one Frenzel channel and the other. I would also like to have my delay effects between my preamps and Amp section of my Frenzel. I imagine I will use the 4 cable method, using 2 Helix effects loops. Do I just use a Y adapter on the effects loop send of the Frenzel to get two returns back to the Helix? Thank you.
  10. The Relay G10 is a great product and I use it all the time on guitar and bass in my electric band and on acoustic guitar in my bluegrass band, but I'm constantly having to hang a separate DI box off of it so I can attach a tuner stomp box or a volume pedal. A simple insert point jack or effects loop would solve this problem and make the Relay G10 even more irreplaceable! How about it? -=Peter=-

    Help wiring the effects loop properly

    Hi folks, I bought an Orange tube amp to have something 'tubey' to mess around with. The dry sound is great but would like to add some delay/reverb and the option to put a tube screamer model in the front. My goal is to 'preserve' the Orange's pre amp so that it's gain, volume, and tone shape knobs all work. I currently have my firehawk wired to the Orange using the 4 cable method: http://guitargearfinder.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/4-cable-method-hd500x.jpg My issue is that now it is as if the pre amp is completely bypassed on the Orange (the volum, gain, tone shape etc is ignored). As a result, it's like the power amp is on full volume and from the Firehawk, I had to turn down the guitar/master output down to basically nothing. On the firehawk side, I have the 'amp' and 'cab' models to none. Is there something else I need to do? Or is there a better way to wire the firehawk to the amp? Again, my goal is to keep the knobs on the Orange amp working and just add a bit of delay, reverb, and boost in the front. Thanks for any help/suggestions! Best, Marc

    Using Pod HD500x In Front of Amp

    Any advice on the best live setup using my current gear? I'm not looking to use any crazy patches or amp sims, just a pretty basic live guitar setup. Current Gear: Pod HD500X Boss Digital Delay Pedal Boss Flange Pedal Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (genre: progressive metal) Since I don't own an Overdrive or Noise gate pedal (two essentials), is there any issue with me using the Pod in front of my amp using a patch with only an OD and Gate? Any I can then put my delay and flange in my Mesa effects loop. Ideally I'd want to start collecting pedals and stop using the Pod for live gigs, but for now this is what I've got. What I've been doing is using the pod in front of my amp like stated, but also having time based effects on there to use as needed. However I know these effects should really be in the FX loop, which is why I'm thinking of this new setup using my old Boss pedals. I've never tried the 4 cable method, but I feel that's too complicated for what I want to get out of the Pod. Thanks!
  13. i was wondering if anyone has tried to use their POD in the same way i am trying to do. what i want to do is to run my analog overdrive and distortion pedals into the front of my ac30 and then use the POD for post effects only through the effects loop, so the way i have it set up now is guitar--walrus deep six compressor--mojo hand fx rook overdrive--wampler catapulp--into my ac30 topboost channel just on the edge of break up. then i want to run my POD through the effects loop for delay, reverb etc, i have it set up ac30 effects send--guitar in on POD--1/4" out L POD--effects return on ac30. the levels are set to stomp, the issue i am having is that running it this way seems to suck the tone out of my drive pedals so they are not as distorted or warm as when i bypass the effects loop and i was just wondering if this is how i should have it set up or do i need to run the 4CM with my analog pedals in the POD effects loop? i dont use the pod for any amp modeling or drive pedals as i have some really nice ones, and i am in an ambient band so sometimes we play heavy and other times we play real spacey stuff so the M13 is out of the question because i need all 8 effects blocks for reverb, delay, modulation fun stuff. if I could get some help on this it would be great. Thank you.

    4 cable method. Does it really work?

    It has signal loss issues. I have read several web pages about this and it all seems confusing. All I want is for the 4 cable method to work by keeping the signal to a maximum. You would think that Line-6 would have some type of mode designed directly to address the signal loss/splitting issues that exist. Can anyone tell me how I can achieve better results? Right now when I use 4CM the dynamics of my amp are reduced GREATLY. It loses punch and tends to sound mushy on gain channels. Is there anyone out there that has had success? And if so please share your secrets.
  15. I've been trying to find specs on the Helix's FX loops where it states how many decibels of boost they can handle. I like to use one of my Wyldes Overdrives in front of an amp with the volume cranked. This is fine in front of a tube amp, but I don't know about the Helix. I know with my TC Electronic G-System, I couldn't, because it could possibly damage the unit.
  16. I want to be able to use external overdrive pedals with my FHFX but it doesn't seem to want to work. I get a lot of unwanted noise if I put it through the loop regardless if the pedal is turned on or off. The noise gets really loud if I put the loop before the amp modal. The pedal sounds horrific no matter where it is in the chain. I have the same issues regardless of what pedal I try. If I put the pedal in the front of my physical chain (before the the FHFX, not using the loop) I get unwanted distortion (like clipping). This distortion results from use with any pedal including clean effects like reverb. Is there an input gain on the FHFX that I am missing some where? Any help anyone can offer on how to effectively use external effects pedals with the FHFX would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Although I now have a POD HD500, I still really like my POD XTs (I have 2 of them). I would like to patch in an FX Loop or AUX Send & Return into my POD XT taking the signal out after the guitar input and feed it back in just before the output so it bypasses any of the DSP effects. Has anyone done this and/or are there any schematics for the POD XT anywhere?

    pod hd500x 4 cable method

    After seeing some 4cm tutorials on you tube I get the cable connections. Not entirely sure about top and back switch settings as far as line vs amp or line vs pedals. Also trying to run through a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Duece 2 but I believe it has a parallel effects loop which I hear won't work for the 4cm. Is there a way to get around this?

    Hd500 effects loop broke

    So after several years I finally bought a new amp with an effects loop so I was exited to conect my pod 4 cable method and man the sound was amazing but it only lasted 20 or so days las Sunday at worship service the amp started having volume fluctuations and finally a volume drop I thought it was the amp after testing the amps effects loop with a delay pedal through the amps effects loop I was able to rule out the amp being broken so that leaves me with the pod, I tested again today and still not working My oxides effects loop broke. So my question has anyone encountered this issue before? Is it expensive to get it repaired? Is it worth it to repair my pod? Or should I put that money towards a new one? What's the nearest service center in the southwestern part of the US? I'm close to Phoenix AZ or San Diego CA
  20. I use my Pod HD500 with my DT25 combo by using the L6 Link connectivity. It works fine, but recently I decided to add a bit more complexity to my rig by incorporating some other pedals into the signal chain. I have a C.S.E. Rasputin Fuzz, which supposed to be like a Big Muff on steroids. I tried opening a fx loop block so I could run it in front of the amp, but it creates this unbearably loud static when I turn the stompbox on. Even with the fx loop block turned off, it still makes that awful noise (while the pedal is still on). I unplugged everything and just did guitar>fuzz>amp, and I didn't get any static. I know that high-gain pedals do make a bit of noise, but it seems to amplify when I just plug it into the effects loop of the Pod. Any ideas?
  21. I've got a Trio+ that I've been using to practice with. Up until I got my XT Pro, I used a Boss GT3 in the effects loop of the Trio+. I can do the same with the XT, but it's rack mounted and I hate to have to run the guitar into the front of the unit. Is there any way I can use the line level input in the back? My guitar needs to run into the Trio+, then a line needs to go from the Trio+ effects loop out to the front of the XT, then the XT signal out goes to the Trio+ effects loop return and a fourth cable goes out to a speaker. Basically what I've heard called the "four cable" setup. Why do I need to run the signal in from the back of the unit? Because it's rack mounted and inconvenient to have to run the signal line to the front of the unit. Everything inside is board mounted, so it's not like I can just swap the input jacks around. I wish it were that easy. Any suggestions on how I can get an instrument input in the rear of my XT Pro?

    Firehawk FX Loop

    Does anyone use the FX loop much on their Firehawk? If so, what types of effects/pedals are you putting in the loop? Basically, the Firehawk has replaced my pedal board that I've been piecing together for years and I'm trying to be reasonable and sell off the pedals, since I simply don't use them much. But, also, if I can find any kind of decent excuse to keep some of them and start using them again, I will. Hence, the above question. Thanks!

    Show your boards! Stereo setup

    Here is my board I made for the hd500x. I've replaced the ditto with a 720 but nothing else has changed. I built the board out of pine that I had sawed and kilned for shop lumber. I didn't use any joinery and it was very simple to make. Although I did get to this point from a log, a nice woodshop will have better options. I made this before I seen the ikea hack but it is very much the same. As for routing, there are many options and I'd like to know how you guys are incorporating your stereo rigs with fx loops and this pedal. I'm currently running the pedal itself in mono because the octave and modulation are really nice on the front end, then both amps have a different od from the aby, a single eq, stereo reverb, and stereo/pan volume. In the effects loop is a timefactor, trinity reverb, and looper (currently). I find myself moving these around a lot. Anyone have any better routing options or suggestions?
  24. Hi, I have a POD HD500 which I mainly use for delay and reverb etc and I would like to put the pedal board into my effects loop on my mesa dual rec. I wanted to do this as the mesa has a foot switch that can turn the effects loop on and off and is super convenient to be able to use the effects on different channels of the amp. What is the correct was to go about doing this? The mesa has an effects loop send and return but I have no idea where to plug the 2 cords into the pedal go. Would it be - amp effect loop send <----> POD guitar in amp effects loop return <----> POD Unbalanced Output L/Mono So far i have my guitar plugged into a boss ns-2 out the front, then straight into the amp input but where should i plug the amp effects loop send and return into the pedal? Thanks very much!!!!
  25. Any idea how I can add an effects loop to an Amplifi 150? I'm not afraid to modify the unit!
