    A better idea would be to cut out the backing track and keep playing. It's hard to tell what a tone really sounds like when it's mixed in with other guitars.

    Or, I programmed the drums for the first part of the song that I could send you lol


    from what i can actually make out from you playing over top, your tone seems very scratchy. im guessing that your not using any high pass? a tone by itself may sound not overly bright, but when its double tracked i find it brings out the brightness more.

    I'm in the UK, can I use a different US-UK power adapter plug with the basic unit, just the bit that snaps on the front? When mine fell off I think a bit of metal fell out, now I can't get it open again! Or do you think it will work fine anyway? Power still comes on, seems to be working fine, worried about degradation of tone.

    Also, in terms of the mix option and dialling that, why wouldn't you just put it straight up the middle if you have a mono signal going in?

    I downloaded the Satan HD, great tone, but it comes out of my speakers at a very low volume :scratch: I turned off the Pod and then turned it on again...still nothing...

    That's weird, I had the exact opposite. I converted it with jzab to work on my HD bean and it was so loud that it clipped and was really fuzzy.

    Is your expression pedal pushed all the way down? I have it set to control the channel volume on all my patches.

    I had the same problem. Had to put the amps master all the way up and crank the mixer itself for it to be audible with drums while recording.

    That would change the tone significantly. Ate you guys checking what your channel volume is at? On my pod it's the exact same level as all my other patches.

    interesting... maybe ill just post all the settings later in case there are problems using it with other hardware.

    did you check your channel volume then? maybe because there isnt an expression pedal hooked up it defaulted to a lower setting

    Ricky, what tone sounded scratchy to you? The periphery one or the cover song? Lol or both? I'm gonna sit down today and try and write something solid for that cover song since most of it was improv. I think the tone sounds awesome by itself but I don't know how I feel about it with that song.

    Ok cool so you think the tone for the cover song works then? I was thinking it may be a little bassy and needed some more brightness.

    I couldn't really tell. Both files were so quiet I had to crank the volume just to hear them lol

    And if you think it's too bassy, it's probably too bassy. The bass guitar is for bass. The guitar is for mids. As I stated earlier, when you double track it brightens things up.

    ok, so i finally figured out how to set the cab DEP's that gives me my favorite cab tone. this sounds as good as any IR i've ever tried.

    Channel A - Treadplate 4x12, 57 on axis, Res. Level 35%, Thump 25%, Decay 10%
    Channel B - Uber 4x12, 409 Dyn, Res Level 25%, Thump 25%, Decay 20%

    You still get the chunky resonance of the Uber, but the Treadplate is so cleaned up, you get very clear, crisp presence and highs, and the tone has lots of expression to it, along with a quick response. It even sounds good if you put some E.R. on there. In fact I recommend that to make it a bit more wet and "in the room".

    I'll give this a try :) even though I'm back to single cab tones sounding best to me in my mixes again lol

    As hard as it is to believe, I've actually stuck to my diezel patch for all my guitar parts of my next album. It's been hard to not try others, but I want this to sound at least semi-professional since it will be an actual printed cd that's being sold. Once that's done I'll get back to writing other random shit and changing my tone all the time lol

    i definitely notice it. it helps to have it first in the chain and a gate right after it though.
