Can anyone help me out, im having a tough time getting a good tone through an amp. I know I'm supposed to tell the pod what its connecting to (and this is probably a really noob thing here) but the manual mentions Live2x12 and Live 4x12. Th pod doesn't have those. It has Combo Front, COmbo Pwramp and Stack Front and Stack Front

Any help at all....

As I never had a good amp, so I actually use the pod as amp replacement (I tried for to long to get a good tone into a very bad amp).

But in your case, you should probably try both some tones without the POD amp modeling (using the POD only for effects) and some tones with the modeling through your amp clean channel.
Try first to match the output of the POD to the amp you have . I am supposing you are using in your Laney lv100. From internet I saw it has only one entry. I would try Combo front first. But other settings may actually sound better.

That's a tough question. Do you like the tone of your amp or would you prefer the podxt tone? When running through my boogie, I only use the effects, no amp modelers. For recording/headphones I turn the amp models back on. It takes many hours of tweeking.

I think I finally got it going, I just plugged it into the effects return to pretty much cancel out all the EQ on the amp so the Pod is apparently my new amp head XD

It's tough to leave the awesomeness that is Laney 's natural tone behind though, hah we have been through a lot.

that's the best way !!! a cabinet is in fact a PREAMP + POWERAMP. Pod works like a poweramp so you should not need the cabinet preamp. When you connect the pod in the return you are just jumping over the preamp and using ONLY the poweramp smile.gif

If your headphones are plugged in they override your dield in settings to default value.
You have to unplug them.
