ozanerkal Posted January 30, 2017 Share Posted January 30, 2017 The main reason I upgraded my PODHD500's firmware was because it has a global EQ feature. But after the upgrade, I discovered that it's a Parametric EQ. I had to find guides on how to use a Parametric EQ (P. EQ) and now what I understand is that P. EQ is mostly used for recording. It's an advanced form of frequency tweaking, with many parameters related to different frequency ranges. Inside a DAW, a typical P. EQ is in a window where you can see all the parameters at the same time and also a colourful graphical representation of what the consequences of your work will look like. I mean, a P. EQ is very comprehensive when you have a computer screen. But WHY THE HELL would someone place a P. EQ on a device like the PODHD500 when it only has a 2" lo-res B&W display? how can I even start to tweak it when I can only see one freq. range at a time and nothing about the 4 other ranges? Even if I did see them would those numbers immediately mean anything to me? No, because there's no graphical representation... So far, the only use of the P. EQ for me was, I accidentally turned a few knobs and was afraid I changed something critical, came to the forums, found the default settings for the EQ, set them back to default and tuned the EQ off.. pufff.. I guess most of us are not experienced sound guys and the POD is not suitable for a P. EQ. but I'm sure we all can use a Graphic EQ. At least we all know how to reset all the faders on a G. EQ back to zero in case something goes wrong. Maybe a P. EQ is much better in the hands of an experienced sound guy but I think it's no use as we can't really use it. So would Line6 consider changing it to a Graphic EQ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
