I started playing the guitar again in the last month and i'm having some trouble with my gear. So, i have a modelling amp from pevey which also has some effects built in. I also have a line 6 POD HD400 multi effects pedal which also has amp/pre amp modeling. Now i am a bit confused about some of the theory behind all this. My pod hd 400 requires an Amp in order to output sound, so i really need to have an external amp and not just a cab (which i didn't know when i bought it). My idea was to have my Pod HD400 model an amp and have some effects and just connect it to a cab or speaker. But since i need to use an amp, i'm confused about the final output of the sound. Here's my questions:
When i connect my HD400 to my modelling amp, what happens when i select an amp model in my pedal ? Will it get "mixed" with the amp model from my amp ? or it will bypass the amp settings ?
Is there anyway i can bypass the amp settings entirely? or how should i setup my modeling amp in order to use my pod hd 400 multi effects pedal ?
I am thinking about aquiring a Marshall DSL1CR. Again, what happens when i choose an Amp model in my pedal ? will it bypass the amp settings or just get "mixed in" ?
I'm asking this because i don't like the sound that i am getting at all and i have played with the settings quite a bit (I just don't know the theory behind all of it).
