I'm loving the POD HD500X so far. It's the first piece of guitar gear that I have genuinely been very excited about. It's always fun to get a new guitar or pedal, but this thing has me anxious to use it more and more. I just love the tones I'm getting from it.
Physically, I'm still getting used to the buttons on it. I'm finding myself wishing that the ABCD(FS5-FS8) buttons were on the top row and FS1-FS4 were on the bottom row. Yesterday, during our set (first time using the HD500X live), I accidentally changed presets to a clean tone instead of engaging the overdrive during a solo. That totally sucked. Just need to be more careful... I may switch it over to full pedalboard mode instead and assign all my pedals to the FS5-FS8 switches instead. It's so much easier to rest your heel on the ground and hover your foot over a switch when you are about to press it, than pick up your foot to hit a switch in the top row.

Using cursor arrows move cursor over the amp and press move then press the arrow to the right and it should move that amp up and leave a blank amp space on the bottom. Choose 2nd amp for dual amp patch.
By the way, thanks again for this tip. It works. Got a chance to play around with multiple amps. Not sure I like the added complexity of dealing with two amps in a patch though. It does, however, create a lot of options for modifying your tones.

I haven't even heard of the Axe Fx, but I will check it out just to see what it is. My take on all this is that tone is tone. If I can make what I consider to be excellent tones from the HD500X, then that is all I need. Sure, I could get a physical amp and even then, it's going to be a matter of tweaking that until it sounds the way I want it. Even then, I am limited to that particular amp's sound. With the HD500X, I have tons of options to choose from and to me, it sounds amazing. It also serves the purpose I need, which is playing in a church where we aren't able to use a cranked up amp, mic'd onstage or even backstage. Not to mention, I like the clean look on stage of a simple, low profile, floor device.

I just wanted to say thank you for your guys response! I had the exact same question. Now I'm trying to figure out how to assign a footswitch to toggle between the two amps. I haven't been able to find the right distortion tone with the pedals but have found them in the amp models.
