TSD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good equipment"

Palmer PDI-03
Speaker simulator and loadbox, which allows you to record sound directly to an amp at full power without going through the speakers, interesting to record quality sound without going deaf.
Rack model, no need power, I have version 8 Ohm with which I plug in a lamp head Carvin X100-B.

Very simple to use as long as we use the right input-output.
One enters the input, we leave out either by lines or by the simulation outputs of HP. I personally use a sound card M-Audio Fasttrack Pro and I have a nickel if I use the XLR output of the palmer, the other outputs send a bit of saturation, according to test his equipment.
Remember to use a speaker cable to the amplifier output to the palmer.

Plugged the sound is very good, I can find the sound of my Carvin 4x12. Better, I can remove its crystalline character by choosing "mellow".
Basically, a potentiometer is used to select the signal present and another handles the bass. It has one sound, good overall and we play it. At worst, an equalizer in Cubase and you change frequencies.

I use it for a week and I can finally record my songs with my sound and my pedals. It changed me guitarig although it was doing rather well overall. Now, I must admit they'll have to invest in a lot of effects to simulate all possibilities of software but it's just the charm of the guitar.

HP simulator different configurations, very convincing with outputs symmetrical, asymmetrical and DI.

Very easy to use with enough settings to my liking. Provide a preamp of some thirty db before attacking a converter and pass through a compressor, if desired.

I use it with a head Fender Prosonic and the first time I met a sound recording of electric guitar in a different way with a microphone in front of an enclosure. We are far simulators like POD (even the pro version). The sound is truly alive with great presence. For those who prefer the sound basis before the effects ...

I use it for 2 months and I am very satisfied.
At this level it is no longer the simulation is an orgasm ...
I used the POD pro.
The value for money is good.
No problems ...

They could provide for the stereo!

There's no easier

I do not understand those who love this contraption ... Hello flatness of sound! no relief! no air!
It can be used for sounds "clean" to the limit ... but when I use a distortion sound is flat and personally I feel a real difference!
For me, it's useless to have a credible mix or guitars are ahead!

I bought it for recording the album in my group and after hours of testing I finally found a solution that gave me much satisfaction and realism (although nothing beats a power with microphone): My Triaxis preamp plugged into a POD with only the simulation of activated HP! and again ... there is the "heat" lamps!

I can tell you that this is not a question of taste in sound reproduction ... but rather a history of sound quality! (In addition to the POD, we can put the speaker you want!)

on the other hand ... to use Live, Palmer should get out a lot .. and should be misled!

Finally ... here ... it's just the testimony of someone who has tested and compared!
You do as you want!

See further notice
No power is the power of the head that feeds the pdi-03!
Complete connectivity, ergonomic, simple!

The manual is clear, at the same time, there is no 36 functions!
The sounds are there, six settings are provided corresponding to different cabs, so many sounds available!

The sound is very good, very natural!
At home, I have the opportunity to catch micro, and the result is almost the same!

large saturation going very well, it's astonishing!
The 6 settings, can step to any type of sound!
My favorite set in position normal for large saturation!
cab and open position for clean sounds!

The ideal would be a good style neve preamp or chandler to get the signal!
Otherwise, the sound is almost OK to go in a mix! (There is always a little reverb or delay to be ...)

Here is an extract taken in microphone (dual roadster to rectify 4x12 cab)

Here is an extract using the pdi-03 (ptérodriver in the loop of the roadster)

It's simple, plug and play, it sounds, it's even a nice rack!
The solution for those who want a pro's but do not have the financial means or knowledge sufficient to make a good recovery microphone!

Excellent value for money!
