Can I transfer my HD 500 presets to the new HD 500X with my computer (HD500 Edit Software)?
Are Hd 500 Presets Compatible With Hd 500x?

yes, by renaming the file extension...
backup 500 with 500 edit
rename backup extension
use 500x edit to load to 500x

Thanks, Uber, for the most excellent reply - I'm considering buying the HD 500X and keeping the HD500 as a backup, or just purchasing another HD500. What makes the 500X better and can I edit the presets and put them back on the HD500 to keep them both gig ready? Is it the "touch sensitive" thing or are there other improvements too? Thanks for your help!

the 500x has more horsepower can run more effects etc...
because of that you may not be able to run 500x patches on a 500.. so going back won't a;ways be an option.
the 500x also has improved footswitches.
