Pod hd500x into yamaha aw16g


Recommended Posts

Pod hd500x into yamaha aw16g:

Does anyone use the yamaha aw16g to record their music.

What way do you get the best out of the pod:


1. Pod into yamaha direct via xlr cable

2. Pod into yamaha direct via 1/4 cable

3. Pod into amp, amp mic'd into yamaha.


I did a quick recording today, pod into yamaha direct via xlr,

I thought this way would give me the best sound from the pod

I wasn't overly impressed.


Any tips folks.

The first thing I would check is how do you have your output mode set? If you are going in the mixer, I would make sure you have the Output mode set to STUDIO/DIRECT. This gives you the full Mic/Cab/AIR modeling.


Also remember that the XLRs give you DISCRETE L&R outputs... they don't sum. So, if you have stereo FX going on, you will need to run XLR to two channels on the mixer and pan them full Left and Right.


Lastly... the XLR outs from the HD500X are MIC level rather than LINE level. You will need to adjust the level/trim pots accordingly to get the best signal in to the AW16G.
