POD PRO X, use both sets outputs?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

 

usually when i work solo with backing tracks i use the XLRs out straight into a mixing desk.

 

in a band im currently playing in im strugglng to hear myself as we have a (almost) dead stage,

 

im looking to  also run into a pa amp and a 2x12 cab so that i can monitor myself on stage.

 

is there anything stopping me running both the XLR and 1/4" ouputs at the same time?

 

i have the pod set to studio/direct and realise this will add speaker modelling to the signal going to the PA amp and 2x12, but is that much of a problem,

 

if its too bad, then i could always mic the 2x12 into the stage snake.

 

hope you can help guys im getting really frustrated with not being able to hear myslef, 

 

 

we want a silent stage , but its a bit of a moot point when we have a dbl bass kit and 4k PA bleeding back onto the stage

 

Cheers

Nothing to stop that, but it would be better if you used a PA monitor speaker rather than 2x12

It sounds like you might be using this in a worship setting since you want the silent stage.  If not, then it still might apply.  If you have extra floor wedges available, then I'd use that as a monitor instead of your cab.  Then use the 1/4" out on the POD into a DI box to the PA.  This should get you the best sound from the POD without any modeling confusion.

 

Bottom line though is unless they are willing to cage the drummer, a silent stage isn't going to happen.

not a worship setting, 

 

5 piece band with 2 guitars and keys playing 80's heavy rock.its a big pa., almost 8k and the bleed on stage is loud, even with floor monitors im struggling to hear, i get "more me" through my monitor, but im not feeling it properly , if that makes sense.

 

think ive  sourced a 2x12 cab and a small pa amp, ill give that a try.

 

one of the biggest problems is that i program my patches using a full range powered pa cab, but when i plug into the the band pa the patches sound totally different ,obviously due to the voicing of the PA, i dont have time then to program patches properly, so im hoping that by having consistency with my own amp/speaker on stage, that can then get miked up , i dont need it to be overly loud just consistent so that i know what the patches should sound like and then get the FOH to match what i expect
