napynap Posted August 27, 2015 Share Posted August 27, 2015 I was involved in a discussion with my bandmates at rehearsal about how they don't feel my POD HD tones are as good as when I used to use an amp on stage (Line6 SVMKII 212). Currently, for gigs, I'm using a POD HD straight to the board, and for rehearsals to an ALTO TS 110A powered speaker on the floor pointing up toward me and the band. Stereo audio recordings of performances from the main mix and also from the room out in the audience sound fine. I informed my bandmates to ask for more of me in their monitors, and suggested they are not used to hearing so little guitar presence on stage. I've never had any audience members or invited musicians in the house pull me aside to discuss any major changes needed on my guitar tones. As soon as I have some time, I'll add a video here demonstrating my tones, so you can chime in as well. It brings up a good debate about how the sound of a physical guitar amp on stage can affect the performances of the other players. Have any of you had this issue, and do you have any suggestions on how to resolve it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
