Hi guys i have and line 6 ux1 for all my recording needs... and i have a question about it ... could i use my own pedals before the cables reach the ux1 unit ?'

example Chain:

Guitar » Ts 808 » line 6 Ux1 W/ some amp model


Would using the ts do any harm to my line 6 ux1 or somthing like that ??? has anybody tried to do this ??? could i also use heavier distortion pedls in front of the ux1 ??

You could do these things with regular old stomps. I keep a real wah in front of my UX2 for just such a reason, but remember there are quite a few effects that aren't recommended to sit in front of the amp. So far the ones you've mentioned are designed for that.

You might create some noise problems using that tube screamer in front of it, I'm not sure how well that would "play" with the signal to be run through modeling. Also, I rather prefer the "screamer" model that's IN podfarm; it can be dialed in pretty nicely if you know (or can make a guess about) what you're doing.

Anyway, filters (wah), distortions (or that screamer), and those types of stomp go pretty early in the chain, it's fine to use in front of the UX1 but look for a switch labelled "PAD" and turn that on first.

What do youwhink would happen when you try to boost a virtual amp? ^^

It's a TUBEscreamer, it is designed to push a tube amp into more overdrive. It doesn't really work on a solid state amp, how is a digital amp supposed to react to the increased input? The wah works because it alters the tone but the tubescreamer will most likely only result in noise when using it with modeling amps...

You can put anything in front you would normally put in front of a real amp. UX1 has instrument input so don't worry. Though some things will sound better and some won't - you have to experiment with that on your own...Don't worry about damaging the amp...

just go ahead, but like zakk said, i dont think it's going to sound that great, it's made to push the natural dist of a tube amp.

Sorry to ask,
I'm searching to buy a POD.
Are you happy with this one, would you recommend it?
Or would you buy another one if you had the opportunity?

Thank you,
Fre

I have the UX2 and in fact I really like it. Its a simple easy to use yet versatile recording interface. There are better ones of course (good sound card + GR for example) but don't know how easy to use those combinations are...If you need a simple and versatile and pretty nice sounding solution for recording guitars easily at home - go for it smile.gif Even the POD Studio GX is a great value for the money...

It WON'T hurt your system, and you CAN use it in front and get a good sound, although it is made for boosting tube amp, it can provide moderate amount of distortion too without boosting the signal.

But, there is little need to do that, because there is already tubescreamer emulation in POD Farm that works well, and it's algorithms are better tuned in with other POD Farm models then your pedal. I would keep the signal as clean as possible before software modelers in other words..
