I am pretty happy with the choice of amp and cabs already but of course more is always better.

 

I'd very much like to see the FX reworked to be better than more amps even to sacrifice DSP.

 

If it not possible to up the ante on the FX at least fix the parameters on the EQs from % to freq and db for gain. Now this is totally possible.

I agree.

How about a Dumble or Bad Cat or Victoria? Any model would be fine. I wouldn't mind a 5150, but there's enough high gain amps already there.

If they are working on effects updates, they sure aren't going to give them away for free. I'm guessing we will see a new multifx pedal before we see new fx in the HD line.

Love to get an Orange amp and a Roland Jazz Chorus amp.

 

I have to agree on the chorus pedals - I am finding myself putting stuff into the FX loop and using the amp, reverbs and delays on HD500.

 

I think people would be willing to shell out a couple of bucks to get an amp pack or an effects pack -> could be a way to extend the HD500 profit stream and keep us away from the Kempers and AxeFX.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the chorus pedals/FX on offer are weak/lacking/sound-like-@ss. Lately I find if I use two or three (stick one in front with the mix set about 50-60%, and one or two post amp with mix set the same) I can get a decent sound, but holy-jumpins IT TAKES TWO OR THREE of them to get something going. Also cool to see people's choice of amp models they'd like to see. keep it comin' people.

Some good ideas in this thread, especially from the OP.

L6 has a new place to suggest ideas, and for others to vote on them. I understand that the most popular suggestions are then more likely to go into future updates.

That would be more effective if I didn't have to register again and create a new ID/password. I've got enough user ids and passwords and sites that I have to remember as it is. It would be more effective if it used the same combo for this support site.

It would be nice, but unfortunately it's a third-party site. You should be able to register with the username and password there that you use here, though. That's what I did. The other nice thing about the ideascale site is that it allows to comment anonymously if you wish. You still have to register and log in, but you have the option of not having your username seen by others.

Is it gaining any significant traction? Are there enough people checking it out to make a difference to L6, or is it just there to pacify the vocal minority?

Now that 500x is out, they need to allow 10 FX blocks as there is 20% more DSP. I currently use POD HD Pro only for effects so without amps and cabs more FX should be a no brainer. I run dual tones all the time so tend to add FX in pairs. Tron up left and tron down right, fuzz pi left and jet fuzz right. leslies left and pitch vibrtao right etc etc etc. Since simple things like volume  and loop take up a slot this would also help that issue.

 

More thought to acoustic stuff like preamps. Having it part of dream rig with JTVs and not having enough tools for acoustic sounds is a bit whacky.

 

Amps:

 

Matchless

JCM 900 Clean

 

 

In fact with just those two I would be thinking about a 2nd HD Pro and actually use the amp models.

 

 

I really wish they would do a POD HD 1000 Pro with two of the newer DSPs so people could really create more complex patches without DSP issues. Charge $1,000 or whatever is needed.

I would also like a Dumble model, in addition to the Matchless. And a really good autowah.

At least one acoustic amp.

A couple more bass amps, Ampeg SVT being one of the best.

I'd rather see a usable Global EQ.  The amps we have are fine.

A global EQ would be good, but I think the SLO 100 set the bar so high for the High-Gain models that they need some more just to catch up and feel balanced again. For me, the only one that still stands up other than the SLO is the Dual Rectifier. The others feel kind of weak by comparison now. It needs the XTC Red channel, and the Diezel VH4 channels, Herbert, and 6505/6505+ Lead channels to beef up the high gain end of it. It's crazy, 'cause the clean and overdriven tones are amazing - I just spent last night wailin' away on the various fender models and was in awe at how big they sound, and how inspiring they are... We need some more high gain models that are as inspiring as the SLO and dual rec, and as equally inspiring as those amazing fender models.

First choice: An acoustic amp. The top panel tone controls would actually work in a live situation!

Second choice: Bogner Blue
