cwoods40 Posted October 27, 2016 Share Posted October 27, 2016 What's up guys.. I'm a musician who is definitely not a tech who is trying hard to be. I can now use Ableton Live and Reason with the POD HD 500 but it took me a looong time to figure out. Now I'm extremely frustrated because I want to start recording acoustic guitar tracks. I waited forever for the CAD M179 to arrive so I can record my acoustic guitar, but spent countless hours only to find out from GuitarCenter techs that the POD HD500 needs phantom power in order to make it work. OK, so they sold me a Sterling Audio PHP1 Phantom Power Supply. Great. I currently have a Shure SM58 plugged into the POD into the MIC slot. Looking at the Phantom Power, it has a male three pin thing and a female three pin thing. I could look up the technical term, but yes, I'm really not that technical. XLR is it called? Anyway, I just unplugged the Shure mic and used it's cable to plug into the PHP1 Phantom Power Supply. I also plugged in the power cable to it. However, the other end of the cable won't fit into the MIC slot in the POD. It only fits into the XLR OUT, left or right. I tried plugging it into both and I still can't hear the mic. I am so confused.. there are only a couple different possibilities how these freakin cables can fit into the freakin holes. What am I missing?
