POD HD500X into Marshall DFX250

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else use a POD HD500X with a Marshall DFX250.

Im looking to hear from users who have achieved a great tone by using this amp or similar Solid State Marshall Amps.

 

What way they connect the pod to their amp (front end, Returns, 4CM), output mode they use,

1/4 out setting, Stomp or Line Setting, Mixer Setting,

 

I've tried different ways of connecting the pod to the amp & using different settings on the pod,

but I'm not convinced I've found the best sounding set up option yet.

 

Using the 4 Cable Method, I was thinking of using the pod amp models in the same way you'd use a Wampler Ace Thirty or similar amp modeling pedals (into a clean amp).  I know this is preamp into preamp, but surley you can view the amp models on the pod as pedals. 

I find that using the Pod Preamp Models (ie. Plexi PRE) don't have the same drive or character as the full amp models on the Pod.

 

Any tips would be great.

 

Cheers

I put a video together demonstrating the POD HD500X using the 4 cable method plugged into a Marshall MG100HDFX. You might find it useful.

 

Cheers

Thanks for your reply Peter.

 

Before my original post I had watched all your videos & found them very useful.

I had used your video (part 6) as a reference for what tone I wanted to achieve from my amp.

I couldn't achieve the same tone as your by using your set up with my amp.

 

I spent the last few nights messing around with different settings & found that I get the tone from amp by using:

4 Cable Method

Mode - Stack Power Amp

1/4 Out - Line

Stomp/Line - Set to Stomp

I use a loop insert my amp's preamp & then use the full amp models from the POD in front of the Loop.

I know its preamp on preamp but to me it sounds the best.

This was done a a low enough volume, I presume I'll have to do more tweeking in order for the amp to sound the way I want at high volume.

 

Cheers

Hello my friend, I have a Marshall MG 100DFX ("Almost" the same). I use this:

 

4 Cable Method

Mode - Stack Power Amp

1/4 Out - AMP

Stomp/Line - Set to Stomp

Input  - NORMAL

 

The loop is after the "Mixer" and after the "AMP". Like you, it's preamp on preamp but sounds good. Also, in the mixer, I increased +3db on each path, you can check this video that for me is the best out there
