HD500X 1/4inch Line/Amp Output

Recommended Posts

Hey All, I have the HD500X- I can not find anywhere in the literature about the 1/4 inch Amp/Line output switch. I play at home in thru my amp and when I play out on the weekends it is normally thru the sound board with no amp in the stream. Question is

1. Does this switch indicate from the unit to indicate what I will be going thru line an amp or thru line into the board ?

2. If so then I guess I need to switch this back and forth from different venues ?

3. Does it really matter what setting I am in Line or Amp ? If so why ?

 

Thanks RLaMar7V

The switch details are in the Pod pilot guide.

Go here to see all my measurements and click on the link that says "Gains". From there you'll see that Line provides 6dB more signal than Amp. That's all it does. Depending on what you're plugging into, you may need to set the switch one way or the other - or maybe not at all. If the sound guy needs more signal, switch to Line. If the amp seems way too over-driven, switch to Amp.
