Pod HD 500 - Volume Control


Recommended Posts

CH VOL just brings the output level of the selected amp model into a healthy range (it does normally not change the sound), especially low enough so that the signal does not compress or even clip (you may even be happy with the former but probably not with the latter).

If you can measure your amp output signal (e.g. via USB) I'd recommend to stay with peaks below -12dBFS if you want to avoid soft compression. No problem going higher if it pleases your ears.


As said by bjnette, the POD Master just controls your final output. Good to adjust for venue (don't change if for different tones as it is not stored with patch. I run mine typically at 9 o'clock for quiet practice in a small room and 12+ o'clock if noone's home.
