Volume issue POD HD 500
by fechart on 2012-05-26 16:13:11.9190

Hi everybody,

I picked up my HD500 a few days ago, and I can´t figure out what´s the problem with the volume... I plug it into a Fender Blues Junior III amp, I use the "Combo Front" Output Mode on the HD 500.

The volume of the amp connecting the guitar straight into it is much higher than the volume with the HD connected, despite the Master is at 100%... Obviously this happens with a "blank" patch, no amp, no effects, nothing.

I´m trying to configure some patches with no amp modelling and I MUST put a compressor to reach to a decent volume, this can´t be OK...

Any help?

Thanks and cheers!

Have you tried boosting the output using the Mixer in the HD500? A volume pedal in one of the FX positions?

Also, try flipping the 1/4" Output level to line and then turning volumes down if things are too loud.  This may increase noise in some cases but gives you lots more headroom to play with.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
