2 Output Modes At The Same Time. Is It Possible?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is my question, if anybody knows the answer, thanks in advance.

When playing live i connect my guitar to the POD. Then, i´d like to send the signal routed twice:

- a: first one direct to the P.A. routed through the Balance output left, and choosing "Studio/Direct" Mode

- b: Second signal to my amp that i use as a stage monitor, routed through the Unbalanced output left, and choosing "Stack Power Amp" Mode, cause i only use it´s power amp section.

That´s it.
Is this possible with a POD HD500? :) or instead, i can only get to choose one output mode :(

Salutes.

Hi mathius, what kind of amp you use as monitor?

 

first of all try studio/direct as Melissiah wrote, because sometimes it sound real good.

If it don't sounds good to you, you can use stereo channel.

Assign a full amp modell on channel 1 and route it to the FOH.

Assign a amp modell pre with "no cab" to channel 2 and route this to your amp.

Perhaps this will fit your need.

good luck ;)

Yep, on the HD500, using two separate amps is the only way to do that.  On the HD400, there's a switch on the back just for what you want to do.

Hi,

Thanks for your comments, Melissiah, Moondancer, Jws1982.

 

Ok, using a stereo channel as you wrote me, which output mode should i choose between Studio/direct or Stack power amp?

 

By the way, i´m using a 100w valve marshall stack as amp.

IMO you should use Studio/direct (FOH is the most important sound!)

But with the stereo channel, be aware that you won't get the same sound on FHO and on your stack!

One suggestion that you might have found on the old board (from Nick Mattocks) was to get a DI box with speaker simulation built in.

 

Something like this: http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/GI100.aspx

 

Then set the HD500 to be pre-amp only and let the DI Box add the speaker simulation for FOH.  It will also work direct from your AMP speaker out if you have a spare one (claims it can accept from instrument level up to a 3KW feed).
