If you read my last post, I said my guitar player had found a couple of good patches right out of the box. And it sounded great.
Well the next practice, it sounded like poop.
And now I'm stuck figuring it out for her.
I tried to build a couple of my own patches.
I'm getting horrible hum too on my patch, that might be because of the guitar but it didn't hum at practice, and when there is a clean patch it's barely noticeable. the hum goes away when I click the amp and stomp foot switches off.
Also, I can only find one distortion on it? Classic distortion. WTH, I thought this was a processor.
On the back panel of the book it lists a boss metal stomp, I can't find that in the unit, are they just listing ones that you have to download?
Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong would be helpfull.
Im running the guitar straight into the pod, and the line out right into the pas channel 3.

I am not intimately familiar with the PODxt but I do know that there are more distortion stomp boxes on it than just the "Classic".
I found these on the website:
Big Muff Pi®
And this :
This is where PODXT's STOMPBOXES and vintage distortion models live. There are 10 classic stompboxes ranging from light overdrives, heavy distortions, and psychedelic 60's fuzzes. Whichever one you choose, you'll have complete control over the Drive, Gain and Tone knobs."
The hum is something I notice with all high gain devices, whether modeler or good old analog into an amp. I believe this is just an amplification of the noise floor. You may be noticing it more because it is now at ear level. :-)
Are you using the "Bose PS1" Output Mode? If you have PODxt Version 2 User's Manual (PDF file) go to page 43 (Section 3.11) instructions on how to do this. This will give you a signal EQ'd to sound like a guitar amp through the Bose L1.
Well, to get a sound that I like I had to pay and get the extra model packs. My guitarist and I worked it out last night. Now it sounds good again. The hum was also cancelled by putting on it's internal gate on some of the more high gain patches.
I'm kinda miffed that they charge extra for downloading patches. O well at least the guitar sounds good now.
