Hey guys can you give me a few examples of how using my variax with a pod hd500 for STUDIO work would benefit me?


Can you track 2 different emulations at once or something cool like that?

Currently, the HD500 is your only choice for footswitch control of presets.  But, it's hard to see why that would be a benefit in a recording situation since you could always layer on a different setting in another pass.   It also lets you tie the volume and tone control on the guitar to any controllable parameter, which might open up some interesting possibilities to real-time recording.
