HD500 4CM with line level loop question


Recommended Posts



I've run 4CM for a long time with my Blackstar HT5 without a problem, but I've just bought a Jet City JCA22H and I could do with a sanity check as it has a line level loop.


So, the connections are all OK, but what should I have the output switches on the HD500 set to?  I've currently got the 1/4" out switch set to LINE as this connects to directly to the amps loop input and the FX Send switch set to STOMP as this connects to the amp input.


Is this correct?

Guitar => POD Guitar In
POD FX Send => Amp Input (POD FX Loop Switch set to LINE [uNLESS you're using physical stomps in the loop] = less noise)
Amp FX Send => POD FX Return
POD 1/4" Out => Amp FX Return (POD Switch set to AMP)


This is how my HT5C is set up. I can't see any reason why your JCA should be different except possibly the FX Loop switch - the HT5C has it's own level switch, which I set to +4dbv. If your JCA doesn't have it's own switch (even if it does), just set the POD's switch to the quietest setting.
