Pedal 2 in Wha mode?
by roninvein on 2011-03-26 10:32:01

I like to know how to switch my pedal 2 in "wha" mode for my POD HD400. The manual says it must be possible but a don't know how to do it.

Push down on the pedal very hard (toe down position), you'll need to be standing up to put enough weight on it to engage the switch.

When I push on the pedal it is still the same. I get only volume control on the pedal 2. In the edit software It is not possible to switch between the both pedals. Strange....

Have you tried the factory presets, like Son Of Plexi that has the Wah already setup?

Here's a snip from the HD400 manual that I think explains things....

Optionally, you can connect an additional Expression Pedal (such as the Line 6 EX-1) to the PEDAL 2 jack on the back of POD HD400. Once connected, the WAH mode is automatically assigned to the on-board Pedal, and the VOL assigned to Pedal 2. You’ll see both the WAH and VOL LEDs lit to indicate this state. Note that you can still assign either the WAH or VOL mode to the Pitch Glide effect, and it will be controlled by the individual, assigned pedal.

Seems you cannot assign Pedal 2 to WAH.

The WAH dind't function.But on effect 1 in the edit software it is possible to make a choice between pedals (example Pitch Glide). That is working. Otherwise I tryed all the presets and all the same. No WAH choice. I hope there is an answer or software update because I am using my pod400 on my hand and on my desk. So that's the reason I like to control the Wah on the floor.

Thanks for your answer. I hope there will be a software update soon for this function.

Thanks for clearing that up silverhead, I totally misunderstood the question

Thanks for your support! I read also the manual from the HD500.  It's the same. Maybe something for line6 to upgrade this in the edit software.

HaHa - wish I could say I'd never done that!

I know - you're just distracted and anxious to get updating your HD500 bugs thread after v1.22...
