milesargall Posted January 12, 2014 Share Posted January 12, 2014 Now running my 500x through the front of my Hughes and Keetner a tubemeister 36 head (H&K v30 2x12 cab - 2nd one to come.) I love the L6 stuff - really -have the only JTV89F Variax in blood red in Australia on order. 3 weeks away....) Hence needing the 500x. Buuuut I hate the pod. So sacked the DT. I loooooove channel IV through the DT and can get close trying to emulate the same sound through the pod. I even thought I could set up a patch with the amp sims disabled so I had one of the actual DT, but I got it wrong: you can't. But now I've running the H&K via midi (thank you L6 - & H&K) with my pod. Great effects, tuner, patches. (Did you guys all know the pod could do this?????!!!!) But now I have patches with Just the H&K tube tone.... (But can add delay, reverb etc etc...on fs 1 to 4) I'm so happy I could listen to a full Coldplay album. (But just once.) Only problem is I'm losing gain.... I've experimented with the screamer and other distortion models as a booster but they still make the natural tube sound of the H&K more digital (to my ears) Any suggestions for a natural non colouring booster that I can run permanently through the loop? I'd have it on all the time but when I select the H&K patch I'd select the loop on (can you even do that?) Cheers all.. 3 weeks till my Variax. 6 weeks for my bare knuckles to go in it........
