So i run my Pod HD Pro into a Mesa 50/50 power amp and a 4x12 V30/G12T75 Cab. On my pod, i run in stack pwr amp mode with the cab modeling off. When setting my tones up, i've always felt like i get a better tone using the full models (power amp included) vs preamp only models, but i have not tried the pre-only models yet in a band setting. Once i get to practice, i'm always wanting to test my latest tweaks to my usual full amp model patches - and i never really tweak at the gig. GRanted, i really feel like i'm getting some great, realistic tones from the full models, but i'm always looking to improve my tone. I realize in theory the "pre-only" models make more sense with my setup, but i'm going by my ears. So my question for those using the pod live with a power amp and cab - do you use the full models or preamp only models. Would love to hear some other folks' experience on this and what you think of each. Thanks!
I am wondering if anyone here has any insight into this. I run my POD HD500 (Output mode: Poweramp Stack, speaker/mic sims:off) into a powered mixer with all eq flat on it, then from the mixer into a 2x12 cab packing WGS Veteran 30s. (And don't worry; the mixer's speaker outs require a MINMUM 4 ohm load, and my cab is 8 ohms, so I'm covered there :D) I've been having a hard time dealing with using the full amp models in this fashion, as it sounds very fizzy unless I really turn down the treble/presence controlls . One benchmark I have is the Recto model, as it doesn't sound nearly as good as when my friend ran his Mesa Roadking into the same cab on channel 4 in modern mode (basically working as the same recto modeled in the HD). HD Recto full model sounds very fizzy in comparison. With that in mind, does anyone know whether or not the full models (in either poweramp output mode) are actually optimized to compensate for tonal changes that result from running into the power section of a tube amp, or does L6 have some work to do on refining the HD's representation of the higher frequencies in their models? Thank's in advance for you guys' time. :)
