better signal to noise with dry guitar

    I am recording some dry guitar tracks tonight and am getting more hiss than I want when going back through the pod. I have a les paul going straight into an avalon 737 then into the mixer. I am coming out of an aux, balenced, into a radial JDI then unbalenced into the pod. The pod then back into the mixer. I am just getting too much hiss on the pod sound. Am I doing something wrong? Any thoughts?

    Try running the guitar into the POD then into the avalon. Or better yet, run the guitar into a real amp and mic it into the avalon.

    Hack the POD unit is a line in device sending the guitar thru the 737 ( a line input device +++ ) then in to the pod will just add more signal chain and thus gain/noise , also the POD has compression already built into them ( even without an fx inserted ) then you may be recompressing with the 737 , over compression or sensitive threshold settings on the compressor will do this also

    Use the minimum amount of equipment to get to the sound you want , then expiriment with adding other things in the signal chain
