I've seen a lot of topics on this but none really deal with my exact situation. I recently bought a POD HD500X and the DT-50.  I absolutely love the IV voicing on my DT50 for my main rhythm/heavy tone  ( I use the pentitode, class B setting with this). I love it so much that I absolutely do not want to use any preamp from the POD HD500X for my normal rhythm tone, maybe just the noise gate from the POD.

 

However I DO want to use my POD for all the other tones I plan to make. (clean, spacey, ect, tones with the POD preamps that is)

 

So I guess my question would be....

 

 

 

How do I set up my rig (POD HD500X and DT-50) so that I can switch between the rhythm tone I created on the DT-50 (using the DT-50's preamp, pentitode and class B settings), and all the other patches I plan to switch to on my POD HD500X,

 

I need to be able to switch back and forth between all these tones for the music we are doing, which was a breeze on my VETTA. But now I'm having issues with this. If I can't work this out I'll have to return the HD500x and figure something out...

 

 

If this simply isn't achievable, I'd like the straight answer from someone so I can return what I need to return.

 

Any suggestions, tips (for newbies to the DT-50/PODHD combo) or guides that I can be linked to (video preferred if possible) would be really great. Thanks.

The preamp on the HD500  (it is said) is exactly the same as the one in the DT.

 

Some folks have questioned this but most believe it is fact.

 

So you should get the same sound with the HD peamp if it is set the same as the DT controls.

one common mistake when trying to get the hd preamps to sound the same is that they select no cab... the DT50 does use cab emulation... and the cab should be selected in the pod.

What cab emulation does the DT50 use? Thanks

it uses the amp default, cab simulation, so the cab model changes with the voicing.

I do not recall what those default cabs are...

but if you've updated the DT amp to 2.0 and use some of the midi tools you can probably figure it out definitively.

if you disable the ampmodel in a hd500x patch the dt50 will switch it self to channel B within the amp it self

 

so a patch without a amp selected wil automaticly be channel B,

 

so  if you set you,re favourite dt50 rythm tone in channel B of the dt50 you can make patches within the dh500x with or without an amp model, giving you the choice of using the dt or the hd preamps.

 

you can also assign a footswitch on the hd500x to turn the amp model on or off, witch will make the dt50 turn to channel B.

 

when using the dt50 preamp all the effects used are in pre position within the chain.

If you use DT edit (free 3rd party software) via a midi connection you can view and edit all preamp optiions including cab/mic settings in the DT amp. This can therefore be done on a laptop completely independently of a podHD.

 

I've kept Channel A as per factory settings. From factory Channel B banks 1-4 are identical but I've edited it via this software to include a Deluxe, JCM800 and others.
