How to import presets from POD HD to POD HD Pro
by rootsrocker on 2012-12-28 03:43:19

I'm about to offload my POD HD as i've just bought a POD HD Pro.  I can't work out how import presets from one unit to another.  I've downloaded POD HD Edit and POD HD Pro Edit, saved the presets/setlist but when I try and load the saved presets onto the Pro they're unselectable (light gray).  I'm doing something wrong.

What's the trick to get presets from one unit to another?

That conversion utility never worked for me - I couldn't get the program to launch on my computer.

But no matter - I worked out how to transfer presets to either unit and it's a very easy fix  

The desktop POD HD saves a setlist file with the extenstion .hbs, POD HD Pro saves the same file as .hrs.  To open the file from the other unit you simple have to change the middle character to suit.  For example if the file was named presets.hbs, it would become presets.hrs.  Easy peasy, and works like a charm.

kinda sort of....

the issues would be going from pro to bean... if you have any tones with different inputs (variax/aux) that are not available on the bean....

then your bean would probably give you the looping reboot...

but you really dont have to rename... you can just drag and drop in the right version of edit....

i think the conversion utility is java based, so you'd need to have java installed in order for it to launch.
