    Homeunit:

    How do you deal with all the noise on the POD? I've demoed it with both humbucking and non-humbucking equipped guitars, and it's so damn noisy, which is especially a problem with the cleaner settings.

    Also, have you used it to simulate acoustic guitar sounds, and if so, can you give me an idea of what settings you've used?

    First six albums rule. In addition, the following represent the only two Y2K release in the world that are preventing me from losing it altogether waiting for the VH reunion.

    I don't have the experience or knowledge that Homeunit has on the POD, but I've tried it with humbuckers and single coils, and have not had any noise problems at all. It could be your amp, or you amp settings.

    The Line 6 WILL generate a LOT of noise if you plug it into the front end of an amp. To reduce the noise, you should run into the 'power amp in' or 'effects return' jack if possible.

    Also, use the built in noise gate.

    AND...another point: the unit is NOT designed to be used with amps like a stomp box, so the EQ needs to be drastically changed to be compatible. Begin by turning the mids up to 10, and back off on the bass and treble.

    If you absolutely MUST run into the front end of the amp...set the amp to the CLEANEST sound possible, set the amp/DI switch to its proper position, and try not to boost any noise with the amp's treble control.

    Well it was designed to be able to run into the front of an amp, but for best results, DIing or into a power amp is best!

    The best way to reduce the noise ratio is to run it at line level and use your power amp to adjust the overall volume. That is the optimal setting that the POD was designed to run at. This way the signal your sending out of your POD is as hot as it comes, therefore giving a great reduction in the way of noise.

    BTW, I'm using the POD Pro, and it's connectivity options are quite different from the kidney shaped POD 2, however go to the www.line6.com and download the manuals and they will essencially tell you in a little more detail what I've just said.

    Try using a new cable between the POD and your guitar. When I got mine, I had a horrible noise problem, but it turned out to just be a bad cable. You might also want to see if there is a tv on anywhere near where the pod is, that could cause extra noise.

    Also, watch out for those damned flourescent lights too, because they will cause a lot of hum as well.
