And you have ability to separate them. Grats... Now Don't you think Line 6 would be able to do this here as well?

If you need to send in a ticket for repairs, of course that is a different issue,  because they in turn need to send you back information on how to do this.

But if we are discussing new features, how to do things, improve on what we know and wants and needs, this forum is the best place to read it.

Of course this place is the best place to request new features and improve old ones. Wants and future desires for all to add input to.

 

And a company that does not read what their buyers are saying about their product line wont last very long. Thats why I "know" Line 6 reads their own forums...

And that is why they spent the time and trouble to update it recently too....

A combination of both should be good. Use this forum , respond to posts and ask posters to submit feature requests.; Just like they do at the Revalver forum. I think it's very nice when the DSP programmer/designer responds himself like Michael Ljunggren at the Peavey Forum. I was just at the Peavey Forum and just found out that they're deep into Beta Testing of the latest revavler.  They've been working on that forever, when it comes out, I'm sure it will be a game changer. I'm not suggesting that the programmers at line6 do the same, but it would be nice to have some communication from somebody from the company, then again, they're running a successful company and the POD HD isn't bad at all for the money. Actually the POD HD today still offer the best bang for the buck (300,400,500).

The competition is fierce though and line 6 I'm sure are working on updates to release at the right time. considering Eleven Racks are sold at the same price as the HD PRO and you get a full featured DAW (Pro Tools version 11) with the ELEVEN Plugin, it's hard to believe that Line6 has nothing in the pipeline as far as updates. Eleven offers what line 6 offer with POD Farm except POD Farm hasn't been updated to HD but ELeven Plugin is identical to Eleven Rack hardware with easy re-ampling and many of the things that are being requested here such as a full featured 4 bands EQ with the ability to set each band to whatever filter type you choose and adjust Q to you hearts content!

I got Revalver III and I reckon it sounds the best out of all the Amp Sims I have tried or demo'ed G'Rig, Amplitude2, 

A'tude is easiest to set up and I like it for that. Revalver is CPU heavier but does do something right in the higher frequencies.

I hope the next incarnation it is a game changer and affordable but it would have to be up there with Fractal and KPA for me to buy it.

The Last update for the HD500 was October 16, 2012 (added Soldano amps and a couple Line 6 amps) before that was April 4, 2012 (adding plexis and bass amp). Feb 14 was the one before that and Nov 11 of 2011 was the one before that.  May 12, 2011 was a signifigant update with added amps also.

 

At this point, I highly doubt there will be any further updates.  There have been no new products besides the PA speakers and no updates to anything in the last year except for the recent variax update.

 

I was hoping for add ons and was willing to pay for them, along with many other people.

 

Don't hold your breath.

 

Most likely scenario is a new product at the end of this year.  Line 6 have been very quiet at the last few NAMM shows except for the PA stuff.

The new product (in a few years, the pod HD will still get updates I believe) might be something like the Kemper Profiler amp. This is not a joke. If line 6 doesn't do it, I don't know who else would!

I think the same...I am considering the idea of selling the Pod HD Pro to buy one Kemper Amp....

I just pray for one more amp on HD, the David Bray 4550  is the PERFECT EVH 1978 tone and I NEED that sound to die happy

At this point, I highly doubt there will be any further updates.

Me too honestly, even if I'd really like that of course.

I also don't expect anything revolutionary, stellar or comparable to Kemper and other high end products from a new Line 6 unit, especially considering the different price ranges, but I'll wait for it anyway hoping to be disproved when it comes out :)

Don't hold your breath. Just assume there will be no more updates, ever.

HD PRO for too short a time to support it turns out, only one and a half years

If we'll have no more updates for HD PRO (consider the price for footcontroller also, all another story respect HD500), I'll sell it and no other stuff from Line6 will be present in my setup in the future

there will certainly be more updates coming... they've never released a new model and NOT released updates... the hd500x is a new model... and they've said that any hd500x updates will also apply to the other HD pods.

This is coming from a L6 Expert, so he probably already knows what's coming. Assault him with multiple questions! ;)

I think it's interesting that, when convenient, the X is either "not a new model, just an update", or "a new model".
