jlong4701 Posted May 7, 2017 Share Posted May 7, 2017 Hello all, I'm an experienced player in rock cover band who wants to utilize the entire spectrum of modeling possibilities with the POD. What I lack experience in is using different amps and effects over the years. Mainly I played thru a JCM800 and let sound support handle the rest. SO I have lot to learn. I am awaiting a replacement for the POD HD500X from Sweetwater (mine wont update correctly), my main 2 questions as I begin the modeling journey are these: Iâ€™m unhappy so far just trying to find some amp modeling that sound great thru my Traynor combo amp. Should I continue attempting to learn to create full modeling amp tones using a combo guitar amp, or should I go ahead and research buying a FRFR? Maybe even a line 6 Stagesource to match the POD. Either way I will always bring a combo amp and OCD pedal as a backup solution, providing a clean and crunch sound as needed. I read that the best result will be full modeling thru a powered speaker on stage, which should allow me to also send a studio direct output to the mixer so the sound support can blend the 2 or use whichever. I hope to be able to move ahead learning to creating patches using the POD interface AND/OR the edit software program. Is using the edit software and a laptop going to be an easier way for me to learn the ropes, as opposed to noodling around thru all the parameters on the POD itself? Again Iâ€™m currently spinning my wheels because I have to wait for a replacement unit that will update flash memory and see the softwareâ€¦ 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
