I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to demystify so many concepts that are thought of as difficult. You have all of the hallmarks of a good teacher and keep explanations concise and succinct.
One of the Line 6 community members put together an extensive essay detailing the ins and outs of creating great patches/tones with your Pod HD. It focuses mostly of tweaking the High Gain Amps but it doesn’t stop there. There are descriptions and reviews of mic/cabniet settings and combinations as well as signal flow and in depth explanations on everything! He has taken a lot of time to write this up and did a fantastic job, He even gives you all the patches he’s made available for download. Fantastic job! Well worth the time to read through, especially if your new to the Line 6 Pod gear. Hopefully we will be joining forces and I will be recording some sound samples for this outstanding guide.
