OldAsDirt Posted October 9, 2018 Share Posted October 9, 2018 Well, I'm about to take the plunge and ditch my pedalboard for a Line 6 POD HD500X. I use several different guitars in the band I'm in - a Les Paul, an ES 335, a Firebird and a Guild Troubadour acoustic with a DeArmond sound-hole pickup (magnetic, not a piezo). What I'd like to do is set up a pedal array for each guitar so that I can switch them out without having to tweak EQ, gain and pedal settings every time I change one. So, my first question would be, is this doable? I'm still waffling on my output; we generally run everything through a PA - either the venue's or our own, but I might be better served going through my amp, which brings me to question 2 - in some of my research I've found folks selecting the pre-amps only, and running the HD500 through their power amp section of their amp(s). Am I correct in assuming that, in order to do that, you'd be running a line out from the HD500 into your effects return jack in your amplifier? And final question (for now), if I'm running it through a PA, should I select amp sims? Any and all help would be appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
