3 cable method ???

Recommended Posts

IS it possible for you to connect the pod hd 500 only on the 'return' and 'out' jacks only, to get only ambient effects from the POD?

Only to do not convert from Analog to Digital 4 times  the tube amp signal (like the 4 cable method does)?

Like this: (FX LOOP set to ON in the POD)

 

guitar -> tube amplifier IN -> tube amplifier SEND -> POD RETURN -> [ ambient effects ] -> POD OUT -> tube amplifier RETURN

 

thank you!

I think this is do-able, you can't do any damage. Obviously you would want the FX Loop block in the POD

right at the beginning of the chain. Not sure wether the POD's send volume will have any effect.Try it :)

Don't use the FX loop on the pod.

 

Have the FX send on your amp go to the guitar in on the pod.  Then have the 1/4" out on the pod go to the FX return on your amp.  There is no need to create an FX loop block in the pod.

 

guitar -> tube amp Input -> tube amp FX SEND -> POD guitar in -> [ ambient effects ] -> POD 1/4" OUT (L or R) -> tube amp FX Return

 

Obviously, make sure you have an empty amp block.  This is definitely the easiest way to do it .  I do it all the time.
