Okay so one of the main reasons I was wanting a axe fx2 was for the new tone matching ability.
I love my hd500 because it's convenient easy to set up and get great sounds I can pretty much asign the buttons to do whatever I want them to do. And with the axe fx I would have to carry a rack case and some kinda foot controller. So the line 6 hd500 beats that hands down for ease of use.

Anyway back to the tone matching does anybody think this is a possibility with the hd500x?
I really hope it would happen with a up date or something.
Im listing my hd500 up for sale this week along with some other gear to get a hd500x lol

would probably be a great idea... however that would completely change the device....

meaning i'd expect it to be an excuse for selling pod HD700's and pod HD1000's not reviving the 500/500x

(relax folks i made those models up! really... nothing to see here... these aren't the droids your looking for...)

Having recently been able to try an Axe, I need to let everyone know that tone match isn't some magic feature where you press a button and WHAMO; you've got the tone replicated. You've got to set the settings up so that you've already got it as close as possible with the right amp/cab/mic models, then you stick a mic connected to the axe in front of the rig and THEN it adds some EQ curves to finish the job.

 

Nothing like the KPA where you just jam a mic in front of an amp and presto - got everything good to go.

Shouda saved it as preset so you don't have to tone match or am I missing something.

 

On a saved preset the amp levels are indicated and you can match what you had.

Haha yeah hd700 that would be cool I have recently got to try axe fxii and it really does sounds good I wouldn't use a tone match live it would just be to play around with lol
I still like my hd500 better for me than axe fx... not saying I'm not going to buy one for myself but it just wouldn't be practical to carry the rack and a separate foot controller to gigs or church.

Does it have to be HD functionality, or could it be a HD Edit function?  Provide a sample of isolated guitar in a WAV file and it generates the HD Patch to make that sound for a generic (or provided) guitar input.  (Studio/Direct only)

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"
