Some amp models have very low output

Hello all,

 

I'm using my pod hd pro since quite some time and i think i have figured out most of the functions i care to use.

 

There is however one issue, Some amps have next to no output. Even if crankt up to the max, its barely sounding at all. Especially some of the HD Vintage Pack amps are very low.

 

I know about the difference between the PRE and Normal amps. But why is that so? What ist the most influencing part of the loudness of an amp beside the amp or the master volume?

 

Thanks for any hints.

They are just designed this way. Like some new amps from the Metal Pack (5150 etc) are very loud. You just need to do some adjustments.

 

If I were you, I would just set the Input 1 on guitar and the Input 2 on same, so you can get a hotter signal when you are using these low output amps. Then I would increase the channel volume and last the master as it affects some other parameters too along with the volume (gain, bias, etc)

 

Try these and tell us if it worked.

Thanks ill try that. I get the signal from a wireless with xlr cable in the pod hd. I think second is already same. The master is no option since i have to maintain a fragile output level for live gigs with 3 to 5 guitars. Ill list te amps with next to no output just in case.

Thanks guys

 

I might need to test with the cabs and with some EQ FXs. I'm not a metal guy. I play blues rock and i have several settings plain clean sounds for Fender/Clapton style. I'm aware of the differences between distortion loudness and clean loudness. I really mean "next to no output" its not just...like....silent or something is barely noticable.
