Tweaking the HX STOMP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Im new at this new digital world so be gentle.. haha.. I have the HX Stomp and I want to be able to get a nice sound direct to a PA.  Question is .. since I don't have a PA in my house, can I use headphones to tweak the presets and they will sound the same when I connect to a PA system?.. Im looking for a way to setup my presets at home before the gig..

 

Thanks!

I honestly don't think you will have much luck with that - the output devices are simply too far apart to be able to do this with any degree of consistency.  Volume is also a key component and you aren't going to get anywhere near gig volumes with headphones.


If I were you, I'd buy an inexpensive FRFR speaker, like the Headrush FRFR-108, and use that to build your presets.

And I can imagine that I can use the Headrush FRFR-108 as my monitor when playing live

There are so many factors when playing live that greatly overshadow the difference between listening via headphones and live.  The venue's acoustics, the PA speakers, the direction they are pointed, where the listener is standing, etc.  Using your headphones to build a patch will be perfectly fine for building tones.

Oh, yea- that's a BIG one. The room's acoustics will change from empty to full no matter how well it's built for sound. Headphones just don't account for that.

One question about the Headrush FRFR108... when I connect the HX Stomp to it.. I set my HX Stomp to LINE/OUT right?

It largely depends on what the inputs of the Headrush are. I'd start with line out though.
