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"

nothing software wise... infinite number of things you can add to it though... JTV, DT amp, pedals in the loop
Thank you I was going to buy it for a xmas gift, so is there anything you can add too the pod 500?

I'm buying a Mission Engineering expression pedal (EP1L6-Black) to mine. I think a second pedal will open up a lot of real time control possibilities. There are no Line 6 "Add-Ons" or model packs for the HD500(X). You can put any other pedal(s) you want in the FX loop though, if there is an effect that you prefer over the on board effects.
