POD HD300 to Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2nd Gen

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am working to record guitar going through my POD HD300 into my Scarlett interface. I plan on using the L/Mono 1/4" output directly into the 1/4" jack on the interface. My question is would it be ideal for the switch on my Line 6 and Focusrite to both be set to "Line"? Or "Amp" on the Line 6 and "Inst" on the Focusrite? Also is it important for these to match on both?

 

Thanks for your help!

The ideal is that both the device output and your AI input are set for the same type of signal (the stronger LINE or the weaker AMP/INST/MIC)..

I suggest to set both of them to LINE for a better signal to noise ratio.

I'm here for the same question:
I just bought a focusrite 4i4, and I Have a POD HD500X.
I guess run the signal through the ¼" output of the pod or the cannon cable should be the same, if the jack cable is not so long.
I mean, in terms of using the cabinet simulator, should be the same.
Using the ¼" line output we should turn to LINE the output of the POD and LINE the input of the daw.

BUT
Which is the best configuration to select into the Utilities panel of the POD output page?
Should I use the Studio/Direct mode?
reading the manual, should be the best solution: "Typically the best option when connecting “Direct” to a mixing console or recording device. This signal includes “Studio” Cab Models, Mic Model and an “AIR” convolution to best emulate a mic’ed amp within a room."

 

Now I don't use cab simulator on my patches, because I run the POD with a Line6 AMP DT25, so for a Studio/Direct mode do I need to setup patches to use while recording? instead of the patches used when used with the DT25?

ALSO, I have a DI Box with a Cabinet Simulator function, I used it when we go live and you cannot bring the amp, and the sound guy ask you to go direct into the PA.

I know that maybe I can reach the same result linkin the balanced output of the pod to the PA system, but as before...maybe I should have a set of cloned patches to do that with cabinet simulator...that's why I'm more fast linking a DI with a 4x12 simulator IR.
Don't know it's pretty confusing..
what do you think guys?
