I fired up my new HD500x today and am having some troubles with low volume output through the 1/4 outs and phones jack. Most patches need to be cranked fairly loud using the Master knob to be at any sort of reasonable level. The signal output through the headphones is very soft as well.

Any advice would be appreciated.

- check the "1/4 Out" switch near the pedal, the "Line" position gives more volume


- to boost the signal you have also the amp model volume control and the mixer block faders

Master Knob is supposed to be 100% for best sound quality according to Line 6.  You turn it down if using headphones or if the system receiving the signal doesn't have a volume control or is being overloaded.


Generally the HD is quite quiet to avoid clipping - especially with Acoustic Guitar the normal signal level is generally -12db
