hahahaha finally got tired of em.
k.
scenario:
1. PODxt plugged into computer with USB
2. gearbox software is open and am controlling PODxt and patches with GUI
3. recording software open and recording (Ableton live 6) using PODxt as audio IN/OUT
4. NO LATENCY!!! YAY!
question: Is the PODxt still doing the guitar sound processing here, or is it the computer doing the guitar sound processing? (is gearbox doing the work)

Reason i ask is that im wondering if the Toneport with have the same (NONE) latency.

Like...
[PODxt===>gearbox==>computer] has no latency at all, so im wondering if
[Toneport==>gearbox==>computer] with have no latency either.

thanks dude, sorry if your the wrong person to ask, but i figured you would probably know.

from that scenario it looks like the guitar IS doing the processing, you have a soundcard that you are plugging your podxt into right?
if thats the case then thats how i plug mine in as well, direct audio outs so there is no latency, and then using the usb only to control/edit patches from the computer

well it depends, if you were usin the toneports audio outs into your interface then no, but if you were usin it as a soundcard itself (just usb) then yes, same would ring true if you used your podxt as a soundcard.

puh, I got a question regarding toneport+pod xt.

you own both, so can you tell me the quality-differences?
I mean...both (pod xt and toneport) are using the gearbox software, but can I get the same sound with my toneport as with the pod xt?

What is "Djent" anyways? Find out here!

Ok so i have been getting this one almost daily lately so i have decided to put it here as best as i can!

Djent: The onomatopoeia of a heavily palm muted distorted guitar chord which is usually played as but not limited to a 4 string double octave powerchord, and as a result sounds much more metallic and sonically present than a "chug" "chugga" or "djun" per se, and which is basically how Periphery would describe its palm muted guitar sound.

(for a good example of "djent" in action, listen to the first riff in "insomnia")

Now remember kids, dont fuck around with Strega Nonna, or that bitch will cover your town with pasta and then proceed to spaghetti your ass to death!

love,

-bulb

nowai, we just appropriated it, its the way meshuggah palm mute their power chords usually, but nowadays they dont really do powerchords a lot, so we are left being one of the few djentists out there!

So Meshuggah sold you the chord before releasing Nothing?

You guys are cheating though, with the dropped tuning and all!

In all seriousness, I just got into your band yesterday, and I really like it.Which means a lot because I'm not into this kind of music.Might try to tab Insomnia out.I'm really impressed by the general audio quality of your songs!I heard you will release an EP soon, will probably purchase this.

do not check out born of osiris. they're fucking terrible. have nothing to do with meshuggah, or periphery, or even misery signals.


they're a terrible deathcore band from my area, and they're douchebags.

the trick to djent on the rectifier series is to run it in vintage mode, then turn the treble all the way off (it acts as a midboost) and run the mids around medium (since they almost act like a presence knob) and the presence and bass based on your taste, then run the gain at like 6 or 7 and have a tubescreamer in front.
though keep in mind mesas are very volume sensitive, so settings that work at one level usually sound completely different at others, the roadster (not the road king mind you) is definitely the djentiest amp they make and its a lot easier to dial in a good sound on it.

sounds alot like some other amps that iīve tried... the "treble" knob doesenīt adjust high end, it adjusts mids, and the "mid" knob adjusts the high mids pre-distortion... weird stuff :P

iīm not quite sure which knobs are pre-distortion, and which knobs are post-distortion though...

yes you can technically, the toneport doesnt have as many models when you buy it but you can add on model packs. i didnt do that since i use it only on vocals (using the vocal preamp models which the podxt does not have)
i use the podxt for guitars since i have the 3 model packs for it.
but if you got model packs for either the patches "should" sound the same, never a/b'd them myself tho...

ah thanks...so, it would be stupid to buy the pod xt+the model packs?

cheaper to just purchase the model packs for the toneport now.

however, canīt find any information about the sound differences (if there are) between the toneport+all models and the pod xt+all models.
