Hello GMC.

I have a POD X3, which i connect to 2 active monitors.
But it doesnt sound very good. Its noisy. I dont get the distorsion so clear as in for example this vid:
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...s-intermediate/

The instructor use a similar effect processor. How does he get the sound so good? Does he record in the computer? Why cant I get the sound as good as that in my POD X3?

I use IBanez RG2570

Hey man,

Our instructors are usually record their lessons in the computer. Try to plug your X3 to a computer and record a test track. Maybe you can find the problem smile.gif

Some laptops create a buzz noise when connected to the X3 through USB.

Newer computers are better "noise" isolated though.

Does the disturbing sound also happen when you just plug the guitar and headphones? (and not the computer)

Yes it does. Maybe the only way to get that crystal clear sound is to record through computer.

Is it close to a high electrical source such as an outlet? Because that could cause interference. Also do you have any problems with the 1/4th" guitar input cable say direct into an amp? That could cause issues as well.

Check the noise gate, there's a noise gate in X3 which helps eliminnate unwanted static noise.

Speaking of noise, we must have old wiring in this older house because my cheapo guitar buzzes here at home, but doesn't seem to at the guitar shop. It uses me as a ground and the buzzing stops.

Must be the settings in the POD X3. You should be able to get a clear recording! Try experimenting with lowering gain and using different presets. If the noise is present on all the presets, there might be some external interference being picked up by your guitar pickups.
For example CRT monitors can cause this, also, some types of lighting in the room. Try to move the guitar around the room to see if noise disappears. It would be great if you could somehow record your playing and post an mp3 here in the forum so we can hear it.

Try another cord between the guitar and the POD.

Does the guitar make noise also through an amp? Could be bad grounding.

Or like suggested, use the noise gate in the POD.

If it's some kind of interfearance like fluorecent light, a tv-set or something else in the room you could try to switch place.
