POD X3 Live Tips and Tricks: Dual Tone Wah

I’ve been having a blast with my new POD X3 Live. The dual tone feature is so much fun to play with. In general, using different things on each of your two tones will fill out the sound and give it more character. Something I tried today was using a different wah pedal on each of the two tones. I set up my blend (a dual tone designed to work on the same input) with tone 1 panned about 25% left and tone 2 about 25% right. Then it was time to play with the wah pedals. I tried a bunch of different combinations but my current favorite is the Fassel (Cry Baby Super by Jen Electronics) on tone 1 and the Colorful (Colorsound Wah-Fuzz, without the fuzz part) on tone 2. The Colorful was gives a very dramatic sweep while the Fassel provides a more consistent tonal grounding.

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the wah. I liked little bits of different wahs but never found one that was 100% what I was looking for. Using a different wah on each tone of my blend gave me the best of two worlds of wah.
