Does anyone know of a way the HD500 can control the HD Bean? I can put an M5 in the loop and control it with midi but I can't see a way to do it with the bean. With current prices it would be a no brainer for me if it can be done...

I don't think you can. If you want some amount of control, you'd need at least the fbv express controller which is around $90. Or if you are technically oriented, you could figure out the signals coming from the rj-45 jack and make a custom cable that goes from that to midi (I would guess that the device itself still would use midi and not something proprietary).
But this! It was the music meant for a mind like his! There were eighty-one voices or harmonies, countless counterpoints of polyrhythmic oppositions woven into the soaring theme, puns and inversion as the voices first followed a nonimitative polyphony of multiple distinct rhythmic strata, then an alternation of the roles of the voices in a pattern of cycles and epicycles. He could follow it all, music no mortal man could possibly have understood.
