    Volume knob cover popped off...

    Those kinds of knobs are typically held on by friction. I'll bet it will reattach easily.

    Volume knob cover popped off...

    I'd have to get a copy of the receipt from guitar center. I'll check to see if I can pop it back on.

    POD HD500X and HD500 - Sharing Patch Settings

    The four units (500, 500x, pro, pro x) share the same brain, but I consider the X version what the HD500 should have ideally been from the beginning. I use the HD500 no problem at all, but I would have preferred it was like the X version, which even if just for a 20% it is an improvement over its predecessor, even if it has been forced, thus it happened by chance, not previously planned. Sometimes chance or destiny reserves good surprises to those lucky enough to catch them at the right time. In regard to the OP owning a (possibly) broken 500, I would say to him that the X version should be considered more like a welcome completion of its predecessor than a big upgrade. A substantial upgrade would rather be to get one of the 3-4 high end modelers currently on the market. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    Volume knob cover popped off...

    If you register it, you have a two year warranty from the day of purchase so long as you have the original receipt. I've had volume covers pop off before and you could just pop them back on. Is the cover actually broken? If it can't be popped back on I'd open a support ticket and go through the process of getting it fixed.

    I was wondering what the repair policy is on this ? My Helix LT is a year and 3 months old.

    The length of the Looper in the Helix Unit

    I can't quote chapter and verse, but I did read a post on "The Gear Page" from Digital Igloo who indicated that increasing the length of the looper time was potentially a possible avenue that they could go down once Helix Core was implemented. Will they? I think a looper is one of those areas that if you need something more complex, you're best buying a more complex looper. Personally, I'd rather they save whatever space they got or can use to add more amps/effects (but hell, maybe it's not an either or decision, so that would change things). I'm not anti looper either. I pre-ordered the new Boss RC-10R a few days ago.

    Tone Sovereign - wow

    I was messing with this one last night, and I still love it. The whole host of drives in the Helix is perfect in my opinion. Is there a vital one missing? I can't think of it. Occasionally I read people say they're disappointed with the Helix's drives and I have a serious WTF moment. Then I go eat a sammy and down a Coke to forget about how crazy life is.

    POD HD500 Flash issues and lock ups

    Just in case this helps anyone! - and they don't have hours to waste.... Apple Macbook Pro - Mac HD - Library - Audio - MIDI Drivers... I was using a generic MIDI driver to use a keyboard with MainStage - this was then running through my HD500X. I temporarily removed that MIDI driver then tried rebooting both the Mac and the HD500X. This time my laptop recognised the HD500X so obviously the update to the MIDI driver was being blocked by the existing plugin. Previously I had installed the Line6 driver first and then the generic MIDI plugin second. So the HD500X now reports USB: FW 1.04 (instead of 0.00) Monkey also now reports all items are up to date - clearly it needs to successfully communicate with the pedal to be able to report the full status. So that's all fixed.

    Pod Hd500x Usb Connection Issue

    Interestingly enough I have discovered one fix for this now which doesn't involve Customer Support after all. I was using a generic MIDI driver to use a keyboard with MainStage - this was then running through my HD500X. I temporarily removed that MIDI driver then tried rebooting both the Mac and the HD500X. This time my laptop recognised the HD500X so obviously the update to the MIDI driver was being blocked by the existing plugin. Previously I had installed the Line6 driver first and then the generic MIDI plugin second. So the HD500X now reports USB: FW 1.04 (instead of 0.00) Monkey also now reports all items are up to date - clearly it needs to successfully communicate with the pedal to be able to report the full status. So that's all fixed. So in conclusion the advice I quoted was in correct after all - but a reset would obviously not have fixed the problem as it was a rogue MIDI plugin causing the problem - even though a later installation than the Line6 plugin means they both work fine. I suspect a corrupted pref file in that instance don't you agree?

    POD HD and my amp...

    Could you recommend me some budget priced audio interfaces and flat response speakers I should try out, so I can get an idea of what I could be looking for and doing? I would like to try out this method you mentioned and still run my POD through my tube amp, then into a different audio interface with flat response speakers... Could you describe this setup in a little more detail please? Lol iv been messing with music gear for years but am still stupid with it lmao.... Just a slow learner I guess... I just want to understand how I am going to run my guitar into my pod, into my tube amp, then into another interface and flat response speakers.... and still record the sound of my guitar with the jam track playing into my PC... Some example of set ups needed would be great... Sorry I just need the extra help to understand...

    Pod Hd500x Usb Connection Issue

    Yes I did strangely enough - but with nothing working now after an 'upgrade' instigated by Monkey - well lets call it desperation! And who said that post I quoted was entirely correct? I've been here before with gear where people post incorrect info s they don't have the full picture. I'm sure you've seen that before yourself! Thanks for your input!
  16. Did you get any answers on this? I'm in exactly the same situation and not getting any luck with MIDI or USB connection with any of my Line^ gear - this has to be a driver issue. All seemed to work great up until I did one upgrade via Monkey - now nothing works!
  17. Not quite... the "vintage modern" necks all have truss rod access at the headstock, and nowhere else. I have 4 of them, the youngest of which is less than a year old. It's the "modern" necks that have the primary adjustment screw at the heel for making bigger adjustments, along with the "fine tune" side screw that you can access without removing the neck. Never had one of these, so I can't comment on how robust the side-adjust mechanism is. But I loathe having to remove the neck to make adjustments, and that design just seemed like asking for trouble. Can't say enough good things about the "vintage modern" necks, though. I have 3 Strat and one Tele... never had any trouble with any of them. And if you haven't already, consider going with stainless frets. Bending is effortless, and you'll wear out before they do. As for the mounting screws, 3 will line up just fine if you're buying an "in stock" neck that has already been drilled for a Strat. The remaining hole is only slightly offset...too close to drill a new one. So it will require doweling of the existing hole first, and then drilling a new one. If they're building your neck from scratch, just tell them not to drill any mounting holes, and take it to someone who knows what they're doing.

    Helix Native and OSX / Logic

    Yes I was surprised it didn’t. I assumed it’d be an application much like HX Edit - not sure why they’re not one and the same to be honest, and just have it as a requirement that it can only be used when not connected to Helix hardware or a valid Native licence is in place. But like you say - upsides to being in a DAW too!

    Native Demo constantly freezing Logic Pro.

    The fix is: Disable your internet connection, open up the HX/N demo, reconnect to the net, enter Line 6 account details. Quite obviously, this shouldn't be required at all, though. Time to purchase tomorrow anyway, I really hope that this won't happen anymore then.

    Guys who have gone from all tube amp to all digital. Opinions?

    Opinions? Easy: I'm never going back to analog again. I've been trying to achieve the sounds of my guitar heroes (and the sounds i hear in my head) with analog gear for 26 years now, without success. And let's not talk about how to bring that on stage, because that's another vast can of giant worms. :) Digital gives me everything i've dreamt about: i can now sound exactly* like the recordings i'm used to. Vai, Holdsworth, Robben Ford, and even a bit of those Alex Argento and Jens Johansson dynamics - all within the reach of my toes, consistent day to day, unit to unit. We live in the future, and i love it. :) *probably not exactly, but it feels like it, and sometimes even better than the original...

    Issue with Playing at lower volumes with audio interface

    If you're using the Stomp for recording, you should be listening to the Stomp, not the monitored sound through the DAW. Turn OFF the Stomp Track's Monitoring Button in the DAW and use the knob on the Scarlett to mix the playback tracks and the direct signal from the Stomp. Full left (counter-clockwise) is full Stomp, full right (clockwise) is full playback. FWIW - I use my Stomp as interface in my office rig. There's no latency/popping because I'm NOT listening to the Stomp through the DAW (Track Monitor Button OFF). I'm using USB 5 (LEFT/MONO) as Input to Reaper. The MAIN OUT level in the DAW gets routed to Stomp Outputs 1/2. I have all my INS/OUTS set to INST to keep overall noise down.

    Headrush FRFR-112 = Alto TS212?

    The only difference is that the Alto has a mic preamp, the HR does not. The Alto's mic preamp cuts in at the halfway point on the volume dial, below that it SHOULD be identical to the HR.

    Hx effects-snapshot bug

    Yes i’ve posted it also in Facebook,but no way! i’ll try with the reset and i’ll been back
  25. The point of all of my suggestions was to prevent the RC505 from clipping. If it has a clip light, then IF clipping is the problem, we're back to Helix. It is very difficult to clip the output of the Helix. You CAN clip individual Blocks in a preset, which is the point of gain staging. Presumably, Helix Factory Presets and 3rd party Purchased presets have already been gain staged. The effect of the BIG KNOB on tone is something that occurs in the "digital realm" BEFORE the DA conversion to the analog outs. It is minimal, and Hi-Fi fanatics argue amongst themselves if humans can even hear it. There's a link somewhere on here to a Hi-Fi site where this is discussed ad-nauseam. Bottom line - I use the BIG KNOB for output level control and can't hear the difference. YMMV. I included it in the gain staging suggestions to establish a baseline UNITY GAIN situation as part of not clipping the RC505. The thing about your speakers is that they are PA speakers, intended for use in large rooms. Getting them to sound right in a rehearsal space might never happen. That's why there's a large market for purpose-made FRFR solutions. You want to create your presets at STAGE level, not COLISEUM level. EDIT: If you look at all the suggestions for FRFR solutions here and on TGP, you'll notice that NOBODY recommends 15" speakers for guitar. Even bass players are switching en masse to 10" and 12" solutions. My FRFR112 sounds great with bass. Lastly, as cruisinon2 said, modelers and FRFR are not for everybody. Some people just can't get used to the sound.

    The length of the Looper in the Helix Unit

    The post you quoted is quite old, and I was speculating that's the case... Maybe Line 6 has something else up their sleeve - I don't know.

    HD500X FX Loop issues with amp

    Hello I've purchased HD500X recently to use with my amp via 4 cable method. I have the following problem: Whenever I engage FX Loop via my amp's footswitch or by activating FX Loop on my HD two things happen: - volume drops - my amp goes from Dual Rectifier to poorly setup Line 6 Spider tone-wise (1000% more digitally sounding with strange flange/phasing ontop) When I disengage FX loop, everything goes back to normal I got rid of volume drop issue by increasing FX Loop Return by 12dB but it seems to be a lot and it worries me, plus there is no way to get rid of this digitalish mess. What I've already double checked: - All connections (everything is connected fine) - All HD500x Settings (I set it up according to other what other success 4cm posts on the web and this forum say) - I tried to fiddle with all possible settings, nothing changes - I don't use any amp or cab modelling (disabled), just pure fx loop / mixer at this stage - All other effects are off (chain is empty apart from mentioned above) - I've dummy-patched my amps FX Loop and everything is fine without HD500X so it's not the amp. Please help me out, I'm on the edge of throwing this out of the window and I'm starting to lose hope that I'll ever be able to set it at at least acceptable level...
