Hi everyone,

I'd like to know if anyone of you could help me : I've created patches that are - to my opinion - cool, but I need extra volume to play during solos. I've used by the past other stuff that used to feature a solo switch (without changing from one patch to another). HD500X doesn't have it. Any suggestion ?

Thanx \m/

Tube comp first in chain or at least before distortion with Threshold at 100 and Level below about 13. Also can use the Boost Comp that models an MXR Micro amp I believe. I have also been using the Tube and tape echoes in the pre position. Always the trusty and every tweaking eq pedal. I run an MXR 6 band in the effects loop with a Fulltone OCD v4. Many many options and none of them involving changing patches.

Thank you Metalchef, I thought there was a more direct way to get a booster, but that doesn't matter, I'm going to try all this, thanks a lot.

Try one of foll:

a. Insert an FX loop in ur chain (place it at the end of the chain if u want a plain clean boost, or in front of an amp or dist pedal to drive them harder if u want more gain). Use short jumper cable 2 connect the FX loop out to the FX loop in. Set the FX loop return at taste (eg +4dB). Assign the FX loop to a switch as (clean) boost 4 solos. . If stereo is a must, use appropriate jumper.

b. Use a Studio eq in ur chain (c abv regarding placing). Set gain at taste (eg +4db).

c. Assign EXP-1/2 to amp CH VOL (min = rythm, max=solo).

The Studio EQ gain is a clean boost - no coloration at all. You can get quite a bit of gain out of it.

If you're asking if there's a "global" boost that spans all presets, then no.  Otherwise...I'd agree that jandrio's idea is the best solution.  It's what I use and it works perfectly...but yes you have to set this up on each preset...as do you with every effect.

Hi there, Jandrio : Studio Eq in a chain works perfectly. I get the extra amount of volume I need (and more),and I can set it for every patch, then choose to color it differently with the EQ (or not).

Thanks again everyone \m/

Give the Q Filter a shot as well. It will allow u to boost specific frequencies
