I used the PocketPOD for live gigs several times and it is not ideal for it. It does not have footswith, plastic cursor switches are tiny and fragile. I also had problem with hum that was generated by PocketPOD when light dimmers were on even though I used ground isolated DI box. If you need to change the sound during the song you may connect PocketPOD to ...

One approach to connecting two (or more) outputs to one input is to sum them, using appropriate resistors to prevent the outputs trying to override each other. For a line level signal, this could be a 1 kilohm resistor connected from the left output to the mono input, another 1 kilohm resistor from the right output to the mono input, and the grounds simply ...

The traditional method of adding effects to your mix is to use an Aux or Effects bus, not the main outputs. The wiring is Aux out -> effect ->Aux in. This has several benefits: you can route signals to the effect independently of the main mix. E.g. you can apply the effect only to the vocals. you can control the mix between original signal and processed ...

If it was my decision, I would simply pan the mixer channels to one side or the other and connect the output of that chosen side into the effects pedal. The mixer becomes the combining network needed to combine a stereo signal into a monophonic signal. The other unused output channel becomes useless when used this way, and exists as a spare. The output of ...

Set both “Gain” and “Level” to 12 o’ clock and then engage the distortion. If you hear something when it’s not engaged but nothing when it’s engaged, it could mean any or a combination of the following... Dead Battery - Replace battery Battery to plug cable issue - try another cable Pedal electronics issue - RMA If you do hear something, Gain will control ...

One possibility is the battery. I bought a handful of battery connectors to use for mini pedals that don't have room for a battery inside. Unfortunately, many cheap battery adapters have the wrong polarity since they're intended for Arduino or other electronic gadgets that are center-positive. So make sure the battery is connected with the correct center-...

Once in a while a person misunderstands how to connect a new pedal. Just to make certain it's hooked up correctly, the instrument plugs into the input connector, and the output connects to the input of the amplifier or to the input of the next in line foot pedal effect. If things are plugged in backwards, the effect will not pass the signal when the effect ...

With the pedal "off" your signal is routed past the effect, which is why that works. With the pedal "on" the signal is routed into the effect so any problem with the effect will become noticeable. The problem is that over the internet we cannot see what is wrong with your pedal. It could be a fault with the effect, or possibly a cable, but I would first ...

I'm familiar with the track you mention on Don't Worry, and it did precede the story I heard about the Fuzz pedal. The story I was told was that Vox developed the Fuzz pedal in an attempt to make a guitar sound like a Sax, and was shown to Keith Richard at the time of the recording sessions for " I can't get no Satisfaction". I heard that many loudspeakers ...

A compressor would be the first pedal I would buy. It just makes your guitar sound so good! Get the Boss Compressor Sustainer, either the CS-1, CS-2, or CS-3, would be my advice. My favorite is the CS-1 but it's not a subtle compressor and you have to like it's "pumping" effect, plus it's no longer made and kind of pricy on the used market. There are ...
