Connecting POD 2.0 to a Mixer
by raiellojr on 2012-11-13 20:11:55.5690


New to the POD 2.0 and I am looking to connect to a mixer and was looking for any info. I'm thinking POD left output (mono) to mixer mono return and POD input to mixer FX send, but was not sure...suggestions appreciated.

i use the fx send of my amp to drive the input of the pod. and of course the output of the pod to the return. i would make sure the send on the mixer was set to minimum before energizing and adjust for optimum output. this seems to be best for me.

A lot depends on how you plan to use it and what you are monitoring with.

If your are monitoring in stereo and you want the best stereo sound, I personally would connect the L & R outs to a stereo channel on your mixer.
If you put the POD in the FX send of your mixer, where are you connecting your guitar?

My current setup involves voodoo labs GCP and GCX switcher gear and the guitar starts with a volume pedal at the beginging of the chain. My AMP FX loop is dedicated to a pro G decimator. So, my goal is to keep the POD isolated from the AMP head/cabinet and switch through to a mixer with output from the PA spk. This would allow me to use all the POD functions in direct mode, through the mixer and out the PA spk. So, connections from the POD (outputs & input) to the mixer (mackie Pro fx 8) have me scratching my head a bit.

I hope this helps and any new info is appreciated.

Okay, got it...

Pod left output ST left return on the mixer, Pod right output to ST right return on the mixer and Pod input to FX send on the mixer-seems to work for me.
