I just upgraded from the X3 to the HD500 and I'm having a difficult time understanding the routing options.
I was able to do this easily on my X3, by assigning variax channel 1 to tone one, and channel 2 to tone two. I then set the volume pedal where heal down was 100% and toe down was 0%. Both tones were active at the same time, but the volume pedal worked opposite for each tone, so when the volume was up for one, it was down for the other.
This worked out GREAT for me.
Any tips on how to accomplish the same thing on the HD500?
I think I'm starting to understand how the dual tone feature works on the HD500. I've seen online where people say you can have different sources route to different paths. It looks like, according to the routing screen, you have a single path at the beginning, and that splits at some point depending on your configuration, and then the mixer sums them back together at the end. I cant seem to figure out how to make the screen display two completely seperate paths, but maybe that isnt necessary. It looks like the "virtual mixer" on the layout screen allows you to pan one "channel?" hard left, and the other hard right. So I'm assuming this is how you route the outputs.
I'm guessing on the input setup screen, where you can select the inputs for "1" and "2", they automatically map to the "1" and "2" on the mixer.
So that just leaves me wondering how to create a "blend" between the two channels, like I did on the X3 Live.
