podhd500x POD HD 500X distorted sound in mixer
Guitar_Trovis posted a topic in POD HDOk, so I have had my POD HD500X for a while and I recently played at a church with a really big sound system. The problem was that my POD was not sending a loud enough signal to where the gain on the mixer was distorting the sound from boosting the gain. (My dad who I was talking with who has run sound for 35+ years and said that unless the sound is distorted coming out of the board turning up the gain should not distort it.) Is this on the mixer side or my side? I have used the sam patch at my PA system at home and it works fine with no need to boost the gain. But with other systems I need to boost the gain to almost 40+dB. Is their an overall output gain on the board I need to turn up? I usually go XLR out. I don’t know what to do. Any help is appreciated!!! I can give you the patch if wanted.
I watched Lincoln Brewster play live. Just his HD500 into a mixer/PA. It sounds amazing: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BkT4tLiH32M He made his HD500 patches available but on the 500x it sounds like caca: http://www.lincolnbrewster.com/podpatches/Lincoln_Brewster_Main_2012.h5e.zip http://www.lincolnbrewster.com/podpatches/Lincoln_Brewster_Swell_2012.h5e.zip Does anybody have great/similar sounding patches made specifically to have your HD500x go straight into a mixer/PA? I'm looking for a nice clean, rhythm crunch and lead distortion patches but everything I've tried so far sounds horrible... My second option was to plug my HD500x into my Carvin V3 half stack 100W tube amp. Use the Pod to do the Midi channel switching via 4CM, as I'd assign each patch to a channel at my amp (but I have no clue how to do that on the Pod). I'd be willing to even pay someone to create 3 basic patches for me, so the effects are done properly before and after the pre-amp: â€¢ A true bypass assigned to my Carvin's channel 3 with reverb, a little compression, and basic delay (on/off) option only for clean rhythm and picking. â€¢ A reverb, sustain + delay quarter note tap tempo, 8th note tap tempo, and .8th tap tempo; that I'd assign to my crunch channel 2 for swells and ambient stuff. If you can't have 3 on/off delay here, then I'd move the .8th into clean channel 3 above. â€¢ A reverb, compression + delay patch I'd assign to my (distortion) channel 1 for lead solo and hard rhythm + a pod amp modeler or overdrive pedal to add some distortion oomph I've heard and seen people who've figured out a way to do it on YouTube. But they just play and don't share... It's very frustrating since Line6 manuals talk about everything except what we want done ha ha ha...
