    Maybe you need to calibrate it. Not sure how that is done, but google it!

    Did anyone manage to get a "liquid", 80s like lead tone like those obtainable with the X3?
    Every lead tone demo i found was ice picky or too dry.

    Just forget about what he says about the pad switch. Turn it on.

    I've been following that but it's not really helping. The most helpful thing in that is his advice on turning up the Bias-X control. For whatever reason, that seems to reduce the clipping.

    Incidentally, I do find the pad switch to be more of a suck switch, but I tend to have it on. It doesn't make a difference either way.

    I casually re-stumbled upon Misha's "recording tips" video. I noticed he uses an Axe2 AND a Focusrite Scarlett.
    So with the HD500, would i need an additional interface as the Scarlett or is it good to go straight through usb connection for pc recording?

    You don't need another interface, the HD500 works fine. I do use mine with a seperate interface, but that's because I'm also constantly tracking vocals and acoustic drums. It's just easier for me.

    While I'm in here, I started tracking some new demos for an EP that I plan to finish this summer.
    Enjoy! or not. I don't care.
    All guitars and bass are so far, and will be, HD500.

    Thanks! BTW, is the Pod by itself any good to track vocals?

    I've never been a fan of the preamp models on there, although I suppose it would be easy enough to simply run vocals direct in on it. I've never really tried.

    In your opinion is it better to go through a solid state amp with 4CM or directly through a FRFR monitor? (considering only these 2 options)

    Depends if you want a more portable rig (FRFR) or something that will arguably sound better, but be more to carry around (4CM).

    Actually i'd want something really portable and still decent sounding :lol:

    EDIT: In your opinion would a Marhsall Valvestate 8080 preamp + Harley Benton V30 be a decent sounding \ enough powerful rig, against a 400w FRFR cab? I would spend the exact same money

    Does anyone have a case for the HD500? I'm looking for one that can hold the HD, an expression pedal, and an ISP Stealth power amp.

    Another post-gig "Pod HD through different cabs" report...

    Played a show opening up at a popular local bar last night, so i decided to just bring one cab, my Mesa Theile 1x12. I usually at least bring the Randall Diavlo V30 1x12 along with it, but left it behind last night, so just the Theile with the black shadow speaker.

    Results were less than spectacular. Had plenty of volume, no issues there, but i had much less definition than with the Randall in the mix. My tone was more distorted than usual. I think part of it is i just really dig V30's and missed having one last night, but either way, my tone was lacking definition big time last night. Next time if i bring just one 1x12 cab, it'll be the Diavlo 1x12. Still, the Theile AND the Randall is a beastly combo. Will stick with that as main setup.

    Sorry if this seems a bit off topic, but i'm strictly a pod user these days for gigs at least, and i've been trying to find perfect cabs for the Pod without breaking my back setting up. So far, the Mesa recto 2x12 and Randall Diavlo V30 1x12 have come out on top from the 6 or 7 cabs i've tried

    Keeping the Randall Diavlo cab in mind now that you're bringing this up. Was considering the Mesa Thiele or the G-Flex, but the Randall being only $300 is enticing.
