POD XT and external chorus and delay sounds horrible

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Just purchased the TC Nova delay as well as the TC Hall of Fame reverb pedals. Checked them in the store and sounded excellent. Now I just discovered when hooking the the pedals to my POD XT the sound is very bad. The sound as kind of distorted like it delivers way too much input. I don't get this? I usually run a Maxon OD808 in front of the POD XT and it sounds brilliant. I only use the "Balance" option in this pedal though, and not the overdrive.


Anyways my setup is this:


Guitar -> Maxon OD808 -> Hall of Fame Reverb -> Nova delay -> Pod XT


Also tried going guitar -> Hall of Fame -> Pod XT with same crappy result.


What am I missing here??

You use just one cable with L(mono) for mono and 2 cables, L & R to preserve the stereo signal from your xt.


Of course depending on you models/effects you're using in the xt and what you are monitoring with will determine it is worth it.


What are you monitoring with?

I mainly just use the amps/gain from the POD. No effects like delay, reverb, chorus etc. I am not sure about your question regarding what I am monitoring with? 


Regarding the stereo option: From my pedals I pass on the signal to my Mbox soundcard and that one only has 1 input for guitar jack, so would stereo all be possible?
