HD500X gain staging, 4 cable method


Recommended Posts

Hope this helps:


- POD "MASTER" knob at 100% (The channel volume on the POD can be adjusted as you wish)

- AMP GAIN knob around 30%-40% 

- FX LOOP level at 100% (both AMP & POD)


I never use the volume from my AMP at 100% because it affects my tone too much. (I have a Marshall MG100DFX), I'm always 40% - 60% of the volume.  If you set the volume of your amp higher then I suggest to adjust the drive or gain of the effect that you are using to avoid unwanted sound. 


That's my experience. Good luck.
