I've gotten suggestions to run it straight into a power amp such as Carvin CS100, anybody have experience or opinion on how they think it would sound. I want tube sound, but i'd like to use the Pod for effects and possibly gain.

Of all digital pedalboards I've tried (zoom, digitech, boss, and line6), the pods are the ones i've found more convincing. I'll recommend a pod if you want it for rehearsals, but for a live setting you just have to build your own (sometimes really expensive) rig.

The only reason i'd consider the GSP, is due to it being rackmount, if you want that kinda setup. Loading in your own Impulses also, is great, but in terms of pure tone, the HD wipes the floor with the GSP.

I recently sold my GSP1101, and im not missing it at all now that I have my HD500, In fact I wonder how I had any modellers before the HD500, the difference is so drastic to me.

So yea, If you want a rackmount unit, I guess the GSP would work until/if they make a HD pro/rackmount version. Then its no question.

I have a question: Does the variance of sound on the Axe FX/ HD500 change drastically depending on the amp/guitar/pickups? Or do these pedals bypass those 3 things for the most part and give off the pedal's sound and tone? Since I'm guessing that the amp influences the pedal's sound, is it worth it to buy an Axe FX/ HD500 without considering a proper amplifier to complement it? (My current amp is a Crate GX-20r, not sure if the pedals will sound good on them. help anyone?). Thus, if a "good" amp is needed to complement these pedals (for that Marco Sfogli tone in those Static Impulse vids), which amps should I consider?

Btw, does anyone know the amp Marco Sfogli used in that video with the AxeFx? That is the exact tone I'm looking for in a lead tone. PLEASE HELP ME ACHEIVE THAT SOUND!! thanks

Searching for a great lead/metal/shred tone ala Petrucci, Rob Marcello, Romeo, etc....

Please help if you can in terms of pedals, amps, and what combination to reach that tone.

I would say yes, horacexgrant.

I found with any of the higher end modellers, even my old Pod X3, would be drastically different when using different guitars/pickups.. and obviously going into a different amp will change the power tubes/etc which will change the tone.

You can get things decently close with the same patch, but for me personally I change the EQing/settings a tad bit for each different guitar.. and I was labeling my patches like "RG6-distortion" or "RG7-clean" and etc, dependent on each guitar.

I will say though, you can get any tone you desire pretty close with any guitar though.. Right now my only working/setup guitar is a Xaviere semi-hollow les paul, which normally wouldnt sound good for high gain metal (very feedbackish), but I found some patches that sounds pretty badass, playing stuff like Death with no problem.

In terms of your situation, I dont know too much about your Crate amp, but if it has an effects loop (so the HD500 can bypass the preamp), it should sound OK. I'd suggest getting a cheap tube amp such as the Crate V33 or similar (ideally one with an effects loop), which would give you some nice powertubes for under $300, but its up to you. Obviously with something as nice as the AxeFX/PodHD, you would like to have at least a decent poweramp and speakers to go into as well. Im running into a Carvin T100 poweramp ($300) thru a custom made 1x12, and it sounds great.

Marco Sfogli's tone will be possible with the AxeFX or PodHD for sure, but since his tone has a bit more of an airy/tubish feel to it, You most likely will need a guitar with above-decent pickups (dimarzio/duncan/etc) and a good amp/speaker.. but I have no doubt you could get that tone easily with either of the two. the dynamics on the Pod HD are just unreal, for the price you pay... it really makes my Axe-FX gas almost non-existant

Thank you kind sir. I think I'm gonna get an HD500 and a set of $100 monitors. I'll connect them to my PC where I record, and I should have nice pro tones at my fingertips, and i'm all set!

So I got my HD400. Installed everything etc. But I can't get any sound, it reacts if I try to record in Reaper but I can't hear it.
I guess I need to have my monitors plugged in to the Pod as well, not just the USB?

Sorry for the extremely retarded question.

If you turn track monitoring on, you'll get sound.. With latency however, if you go through USB. If you have it set up through an interface it should work without latency I guess.

Thank you so much, now I have sound. But I have a ton of latency.. 185ms
And yes I play through USB, I don't understand what playing through an interface is..

Well, if you have an audio interface like those M-Audio Fasttrack things or some Tascam interface, that kind of stuff, then you can hook the output of the pod to the input of the interface. Interface is connected to the PC via USB or FireWire but will provide far lower latency than just using an USB port...

What you could also do is hook up the POD to your USB port and then monitor using headphones or something.

So, I basically have to shit out another €15 for it to work properly, without latency and without headphones? God damnit.. It wont work using my Line6 GX soundcard somehow? I had a ton of latency with that thing too though... I hate technology.

I'm sorry if I sound like a douche, but I'm pretty pissed right now considering at this rate I'm not gonna have a dime to spend on anything except getting this to work until summer...

And I also think the pedal on it is broken. Because it barely stays up (down). I can probably make a video to show that...

i just got my pod hd 500, and i'm loving it so far, i'm not even coming close to things to run out of tweaking. i have noticed though, that it sounds somewhat different, due to the fact that i'm playing it through my computer speakers, which are quite different than playing through normal speakers, as i understand, computer speakers are more calibrated to get a
"nice" sound, from what i understand. would getting a somewhat cheap monitors (such as Buy M-Audio Studiophile BX5A Deluxe Limited Edition | Powered Monitors | Musician's Friend or Buy M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Powered Reference Speaker System pair | Powered Monitors | Musician's Friend) help this, and possibly make it sound more true to what it should be?

If the HD is the same as the XT in this regard, do this:

Record through USB.

Connect the headphone out of your HD to the Line In on your sound card.

Turn on Line In monitoring on your sound card mixer.

Enjoy lag free monitoring through your computer speakers or whatever you have hooked up.

Thing is, I've done that. And I get a signal and all that in my DAW, but I can't hear anything.. I guess that's probably a setting that's messed up in my DAW, which is Reaper.

If that's the problem, you probably need to change the settings for track monitoring.. I'm not sure, but you can choose between signal monitoring and line in monitoring IIRC... Try looking at that.
