Check out my 5150 patch man, might be a place to start

If you want it to have more "grit" then change the mic to on axis. It works well with a blend of on axis on the right, off axis on the left.

Seeing as how I have a Pod Studio ux2 instead of a Pod X3 or XT, can I still get these patches? I actually still have to download the FX Junkie, and Metal Shop packs.

Oh my god I think I've finally learnt the trick to dialing in good high gain patches on the POD X3. And the thing that made all the difference to this process is me buying studio monitors. I got a pair of Yamaha HS50's and LOVE them

I can upload the patches I made this weekend if someone is interested.
Cheers.

hey dudes. does anyone here use the pod in conjunction with a presonus firepod? if so, what settings are your levels at? atm my output on pod is at 12:00, channels 1 and 2 (where my pod is plugged in) on the firepod are at about 10:00 and the main output on my firepod is at about 2:00. it must be the wrong way to do it though because my shit starts clipping long before it gets to the volume of.. say bulb recordings.

anyone care to share their settings volume/amp wise?

bulb uses alot of compression to get his mixes as loud as they are (very loud) so you'll need some tricky compression work to get them that loud without clipping/pumping/generally sounding bad.

One thing about the uber compression, it can work well with some styles of music, but if play stuff with more dynamics (variations in volume) then don't use that much limiting.
There is still plenty of professional recordings not even as loud as Bulb's stuff, so I wouldn't worry so much if I couldn't get to that volume without clipping.
I seriously doubt anyone is going to say "Oh man, this isn't mastered loud enough" about your music

haha yeah I wasn't overly concerned about that, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't poor optimization or anything like that, but just an everyday occurrence.

+ bulb is king so I can't feel too bad about my mixes not being of his quality yet

Here's my personal POD X3 Pro setup:

I use the Diezel Herbert model through the Mesa 4x12 cab model. To my ears, that amp gets the best mix between harmonic richness and low-end thunk. I add a *slight* bit of room reverb at the POD to make it sound less artificial, and to let the sound breathe a little.

Until recently, I copied the same settings to Tone 1 and Tone 2, and panned the outputs hard L/R. To separate it in stereo, I would use a 57 on-axis on the L channel and a 57 off-axis on the R. That worked fairly well for most things. If I wanted it even fatter, I would double-track the guitars and swap the L/R tracks on the second take.

These days, I like a much less "cluttered" sound. I simply record a single take, panned straight up the center. If I want the guitar to be "stereo-ized", I simply copy the track, pan them hard L/R, and apply between 5 and 10ms of delay (depending on how wide I want it) to the R track. For lead sounds, I do the same thing but use a stereo track (since I'm a fan of stereo delays). It still sounds mono-esque until you apply the 5-10ms though.

I just recently got into re-amping. Now I basically repeat the process above, except instead of copy-pasting the original track, I re-amp it. The original track is hard L and the re-amped is hard R with a 5-10ms delay. This creates less phasing problems and gets an overall thicker sound.

The final secret I use to recording the POD is to get away from the USB setup as soon as possible. A lot of the "fizz" I've found comes from using the USB outputs. When I run the POD into a proper interface (M-Audio Delta 1010 in my case) it sounds leaps and bounds better.

To record bass, I use the Big 360 setting through a 1x15 cab. Bass for me is *always* mono, straight up the middle.

Now if only I could get my vocals to sound decent...

When you say pan hard L/R, does that mean all the way to the left and all the way to the right?

Yep. I know most pros frown on hard L/R pans, but I love the way they sound. At the minimum, I'll do a 60% L/R spread when I want stereo sounds.

most frown upon it? Interesting. I'm self taught in the whole recording thing but I learned very quickly that the guitars sit best in the mix when panned hard to allow the drums come up the center.

pro recordings generally don't have anything panned hard in any direction.

but everyone self-taught pans hard because it's the easiest way to make more "central channel" type things (drums, bass, lead guitar work) be more present.

a good general rule to work with is that everything in your mix should be present and sound decent regardless of what is panned where. if you can achieve that, then you won't have to rely on tricks (like hard panning) just to make things listenable.

i used to go 80/80 back when i first started recording, but it sounds way more open and bigger if i go 100/100. only downside i see is that i have to play tighter, because discrepancies between tracks is more noticeable when panning hard, but thats not really bad anyway, cos it just forces you to be better at playing.

I was wondering, what is a better way to hook up the Toneport UX8. I have it hooked up USB right now but would it perform/sound better hooked up through S/PDIF?

the sound on the USB bus and the SPDIF should be identical. both are digitally transmitted.

you'll have a higher latency on the USB than the SPDIF because the USB connection itself has additional latency beyond just the miniscule processing latency. that's the only real difference as far as recording/sounding goes.
