HD500 EQ Convertion Patch request

Recommended Posts


actually i'm using my HD500 connected to the guitar input of my Mesa Boogie amp (clean channel and the max flat eq possible like bass=5/10,mid=5/10 and so on).

In the past i tryed other connection methods ( L6 with DT25, send/return, bypassing preamp of the amp ...) but now i find my the best results direct to the amp.

Now i have a big question...

I'm a little boring to try patches with different output modes to find which sound best, also "output mode" isn't a storable parameter for each patchs; more: the large patches downlodable from the customtone site are made for DIRECT/STUDIO, but this large number of patches

sound very good to a PA and almost bad to a guitar amp ( caused mostly to a bad-according EQ).

So, my request is if someone of you could try to program an EQ Fx Model (like Mid focus EQ or other) to put in the end of the effect's chain that try "convert" a DIRECT SOUND patch to a "Direct to Input guitar" Patch.

Maybe connecting the POD to a Studio Monitor and to a guitar amp  and trying step by step variations...don't know...

Yes i know the result is probably impossible or not perfect but i think would be very useful .


Sorry for my poor English

It just doesn't work that way. I don't think theres a magic EQ setting that makes direct tones sound good going into the front of an amp. I suggest you try the four cable method with your Pod and amp

Or maybe take those custom tone patches and remove the amp/cab. You're guitar amp already provides those. That may be enough to get you in the ballpark of what you're seeking.
