In my small home studio I decided to try using my POD 2.0 as my guitar effects unit. The problem is, I have been getting a lot of noise in my signal. I decided to check out using some balanced 1/4" cables, because it says in the manual that the outputs are in fact balanced, and will get rid of unwanted noise. But this doesn't make sense, because the manual also says that my 1/4" input IS NOT balanced. So how will this work? If I can't use a balanced input, then noise could possibly get into my input signal. How is it going to reduce the noise if it is already part of the signal going in? Can it differentiate between my guitar signal and the noise that is interfering if my input isn't balanced? I guess it's only so that there won't be any noise between the POD and the mixer Can someone enlighten me?
