There is a BPM option, but you have to go into the Setup menu on the POD itself (page 6) to edit it. The HD Edit program lets you change the BPM, but it doesn't actually work!

I've been a pod user in worship since pod 2.0. That's like, 10 years ago lol.. But I used that, then the xt live. On the xt live, all my tones revolved around the ac 30 amp.. I was able to closely match just about any lead worship guitarists tone. But I mostly stuck around a Daniel Carson type tone from Chris Tomlins band. Then, my church offered to buy me the hd500 because I talked about it so much. I basically felt the xt live was starting to hold me back because of the new features on the hd500. After hours and hours of playing around and tweaking on it.. I get most of my tones off of the doctor z amp. If I'm constantly using clean and and dirty tones back and forth on one song I always just use the volume knob to back the gain off to clean. I use a fender amp for some patches, mostly clean, but I do use it on one patch for a beefy classic rock tone on certain songs.. But I use that amp and some fx pedals for "revelation song" by Phillips, Craig and dean and have the lead tone nailed almost dead on with delay and everything. Everything just takes a ton of tweaking to get the many tones you want. People really don't understand the concept of how easy it is to carry a board in and plug it into the pa and your ready for a gig lol. No lugging around 4 $figure$ amps and using 10 pedals to get your tone when you can have a like 30 of the best and most popular amps or however many amps there are on the dang thing with 100 pedals to choose from lol. It's just common sense. At least everyone on this forum "gets it". Oh, and I use an alto ts115a powered speaker at home to come close to the live sound and sometimes plugged into my in ear system at church when I don't feel like using in ears. But anyways, I get compliments consistently about how good my guitar sounds from a lot of people. Good luck bro

Hey guys, i know someone asked this a long time ago, but from looking at this post, i am not sure if anyone ever responded.  I am curious to see if anyone has a patch that could be used for "Whom Shall I fear" by Chris Tomlin  for electric guitar?

For that song, I typically use the Screamer Overdrive, a touch of Analog Chorus, dotted 8th digital delay, an AC30 amp, and a plate reverb, in that order. It's pretty simple to create your own patch for it. If you ever look up Daniel Carson's rig online, you'll see he uses some pretty straightforward stuff himself in terms of pedals and amps.

You could also try the Dr Z model, though the AC30 will work well. I've used either. (HD400 user here)

Anyone create patches for a contemporary worship setting using a Taylor T5? What would you suggest would be the best amp to use with this guitar?

What settings are best for that thick, fat, lead tone? I play a Taylor T5, hollowbody electric with humbucker pickups and I'm currently using the AC30 amp model.

You might be in a small group with that T5, but they always looked like nice guitars!

 

Not sure what you mean by "thick, fat, lead tone," exactly, but I have to say it's probably not something that shows up in a lot of CCM.  If the AC30 is not working for you, you might take a swing with a Marshall or Park (probably the closest thing to "fat" that I had in my patches), or even a Fender Twin model.  If you are going direct, you'll need to rely on the FOH folks to watch for muddiness when those HBs start encroaching on the bass' range or low keys.  (Which is a sideways hint that sometimes what sounds fat in a mix isn't that fat at all by itself.  Record the full mix to be sure you're getting what you want.)

Anyone experiment with dual amps models for a worship setting? If so, what combos work well?

When I hear "thick, fat lead tone" I think of the lead guitar in Steve Fee's live version of "All Because of You", especially in the muted bridge section.  I'm trying to get that tone out of the HD500x.

To my ear, a lot of the "thickness" is caused by delay.  For the more typical CCM kind of tone I would usually alternate between a patch with an AC-30 model or the Park 75, but I also liked the Fender Deluxe, and a lot of times that will work. Honestly, I never spent the time to try to duplicate a tone exactly - it would have made me crazy :).  But really, with the delay and OD/distortion/compression going on, there's a lot of ways to get a tone that works.  (If you have a humbucking guitar, and it's got some of those hotter pickups, you might want to keep the volume rolled back on the guitar so you can let the "chime" of the amp come through - much as I love my Gibson LP, it's not the guitar I'd probably pick as an "only" guitar for CCM lead *and* rhythm.)
