POD HD500 as audio interface to record acoustic guitar

Recommended Posts



I want to use my POD HD500 as an audio interface to record my acoustic guitar using the guitar/aux input. I use USB to connect the POD to the computer.


In this case, what would be the most correct way to use it: should I create an empty preset or use it in Bypass (tuner)?


Thank you!

The best acoustic guitar sound is going to come from miking the guitar, not plugging it in.  But if you can get the sound you want with a preset, then record that.  Doesn't 'bypass' mute the output??


You have two options. You can use the tuner by listening to the sound bypassed or muted.
