    POD HD and my amp...

    When you say backing track playback, do you mean listening to the jam track and playing along with it using the amp to hear the sound? I just thought thats what the amp was suppose to be used for, it having a usb output and all.... Im still new to recording and to be honest, I am not very good at it.. :( My ultimate goal out of all of this is to play a sound coming out of my computer like a backing track, then play along to it with a tube amp and record the sound... and have it sound good.... I don't want to have to save the track I play then paste it into the backing track.... thats a hassle to me and I would rather just record my noodles and experiment with different sounds and have fun.... and catch a glimpse of what I sound like sometimes by recording it to see how bad I sound lol...

    Ac adapter question for a POD X3

    Hi I was wondering if you guys could tell me, can I use the ac adapter from my POD HD Desktop to power up and use with my POD X3? Will it work and not hurt anything?

    How to use Ext2 pedal to switch amp channels? - HX Effects

    OK, so this was totally user error - ME! I didn't set the Ext Amp2 to Tip. Derp. Yeah so it switches now. Still only switches to the channel, not back when disengaged but that appears to be cause of the design of my Bugera TriRec amp's external switching jacks. I'm almost 100% certain if I take a stereo to dual mono 1/4" cable and set the Ext Amp2 to T+R and connect the mono ends to channels 1 & 3 it should switch between the two. Cause the ring will still be wired to the tip of the second mono cable yes?

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

    When you switch between a preset using the 5150 and a preset using a Helix amp mod, do the levels match with the volume you have the 5150 set to, or do you have to adjust the Helix amp models independently?

  7. I don't know. My JTV89F just isn't working with the HELIX. Same cables work with the VDI and connect with Monkey. Everything seems fine. Just REFUSES to bond with the HELIX. ALL LATEST FW. Did EVERYTHING I know how to make volume happen . . . NOTHING! 1/4" works fine between Helix and JTV. VDI - NOTHING. Not to be crude, but . . . WTF???

    POD HD500X and HD500 - Sharing Patch Settings

    and don't forget the glowy footswitches that cause a 60hz pulse on certain lots of units. but, hey, at least it is in sync with the tempo flash. although they do seem to be holding up better than the original footswitches so, ok, you got me. if someone wants to run 2 amps and 8 reverbs/delays at the same time, they probably need the X because we got lucky enough that the processor was no longer made and L6 was forced to use a newer one. but at the same time - you've also seen that talking about this with new people really confuses most of them. which is why i am glad you brought up that they are limited to 2 amps and 8 effects no matter which unit it is.
  9. Good evening everyone! I am a solo looping artist, and guitar is my main instrument. I recently upgraded my setup. Right now , this is how it goes: Guitar goes into Helix, Helix jack out stereo into RC505 Inst In . I also have other instruments going into the RC505 AUX (this is one of the reasons why i dont have it inside Helix as a FX LOOP). At home I manage to get OK tones. In my rehearsal room, playing at stage level, it all goes donwill. Im really struggling to get usable tones...Everything just sounds so fake and digital, feels nothing like an amp! I get really ugly high end distortion, akin to when your DAW is overloading your CPU. My monitors are JBL m350 mk2 btw. At this point i have tried everything I could think of. I have made my own presets, downloaded others from the internet, tried low cut 250 and high cut as low as 5k-8k, playing around with input levels on mixing desk, RC505, helix... nothing seems to work. At this point its unplayable and i just cant get a good enough sound to even feel what im playing. Maybe this is in vein, but perhaps someone with a similar setup has some tips? Is there anyway to know if helix is clipping? From a block to another, perhaps?? Or maybe RC505 leveling tips with the helix? I dont even know... Thank you so much in advance!
  10. If you're low on processing power, you can do the same with a dirt pedal on one path and nothing on the other. Have the paths converge before the amp so you don't need two amps.

    Hx effects-snapshot bug

    I have been using 2.82 on my HX Effects for awhile now, and I’m not having this issue. If you’re sure all the Global Settings are correct, I’d recommend doing a factory reset (hold down FS7 & FS8 while powering up) and restoring from backup afterwards (make sure you create a backup prior to doing the reset).

    POD HD500X and HD500 - Sharing Patch Settings

    ..except that the X version has 20% more DSP resources available thus lifting the reachable DSP maximum limit, to allow if/when needed the creation of particularly complex patches that require more resources. . ..the total number of available blocks in the chain is the same in both POD versions, but each of the available models consumes its particular quantity of resources.. ..and by combining in a patch some very resource hungry models you could easily hit the DSP limit well before having used all the blocks theoretically available.. here and only here is where the 20% more resources available in the X version makes the difference.. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    I've found if you have an FRFR that can push some air that you can get amp in the room sound... I sure as heck haven't enjoyed my 2 custom tube amps I kept much in a few years now. I have Helix, Axe FX III, and Kemper Stage. I love all 3.

    Hx effects-snapshot bug

    Are you SURE that "Snapshot Edits" is set to RECALL? What FW version are you on? Does the FW version match the HX Edit version? BOTH should be 2.82 in order to have all the latest bug fixes and features.

    POD HD and my amp...

    you're not going to find me getting into the debate over "real vs memorex" again but .... we just need to make sure we are comparing apples to apples instead of apples to automobiles with apple car play same room sound air push cd sound pa sound computer speaker sound from a youtube video sound take that microphone and move it an inch and it sounds totally different keep that microphone at the same spot but turn up the amp and it sounds totally different keep that microphone at the same spot but use a different mic and it will sound totally different the list of variables is endless so I will leave it at this - the sound comes from one user and is heard by another user, and could even have users making adjustments in between the two. what I create may be different than what you hear which would lead to some odd results when you try to reproduce it for me to hear. as long as you have decent gear and know how to work it, you should be able to create indistinguishable tones

    POD HD and my amp...

    Backing tracks playback through a guitar amp certainly would be a quite bad solution. Therefore if you prefer to use a real tube amp with the POD, the backing track playback should be done through flat response monitors/speakers connected to your PC integrated sound card or to an external audio interface other than the POD in this case. In any case you could still use the Editor to tweak the parameters of your POD connected through USB even if you're not using it as audio interface. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  19. If the rod nut access is on the body side of the neck, on a 69 with a "W" prefix in the serial number, then you will have a problem adjusting the rod, as the pick guard will cover the rod access from that side. It would have to be a Warmouth neck with rod nut access at the head-stock. Only the US builds of JTV-69 have the rod nut access on the body side of the neck (with a notched pick guard for access there).
  20. It seems to work - just tried quickly with A and B paths manipulating the mixer B level, B pan and B polar with expression pedal - normal min value and invert max value. Seems to work. Andy Summers seemlessly morphing into John Sykes :-) Try to set someting up tomorrow and check in depth!. Thanks a lot for helping me in the right direction!!. :-) :-)

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

    I went full digital back in GT-10 days and I don't missing carrying all the extra gear and fighting with a guitar cab that sounds different in every room. As far as "amp in the room", you need something that moves air like the cab you're used to or it won't work feel-wise. So either a real guitar cab, Powercab, or probably one of the Friedman options. I tried their wedge 12" speaker and that was the closest to a guitar cab feel I've gotten with full-range speakers. I personally prefer my monitor up on a pole behind me to further decouple from the effects of the stage/room on my sound. I'm also an anomaly among guitarists as I couldn't really give two craps less about "cab feel", since I learned to play and spend 99% percent of time practicing in headphones or monitors, so for me playing guitar has nothing to with the amp or air movement, just hitting the right notes at the right time in the right way. I sure do like having a load in that consists of my pedalboard, my guitar case, and my 12" PA speaker with a pole.

    Help with G10 and Ibanez JEM77P

    I'm guessing that input jacks are standard, so my money would be on yes.

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

    Seeing you have the HX Effects that means for your "amp model" is your 5150 (pointing out the obvious :) - are you looking for additional amps as well, or just to simplify your setup (once your patches set)? Also, are you maxing out the 9 blocks/preset? I have the Helix LT and run 4CM into my Marshall DSL40C. I went in with the expectation of using my DSL for my amp and Helix for effects only, but then setting up a few patches with amp and cabs so I could use the Helix as a backup if my amp was under repair. That quickly changed after I started messing with the Helix. Some presets are what I expected, just my Marshall and the Helix for effects, however, I also now have a bunch of patches where I use a Helix preamp model and go direct to the effects loop return, so my DSL is just a tube power amp (all in 4CM). Going straight Helix, however, has been a bit of a learning curve for me - especially since I'm now getting into some recording (I'm barley scratching the surface). Thanks to the guys/gals on this board I've learned a lot! Amp in the room vs amp, FRFR speakers, need to get monitors for recording and mixing and not use home stereo speakers, using the Helix as your audio interface, etc. I really get into this stuff and love to learn and play with it - so I don't mind it. For others that are looking for more plug-and-play, going all Helix vs. amp may be a bit more than what they had in mind.

    POD HD and my amp...

    I want to use a POD bean pedal for the usb so I can jam along to sounds coming from my PC... I also want the convenience of adjusting my effects via computer with the mouse and not have to be towering over the little buttons of the POD, I got big clumsy hands lol... Lastly I want to enjoy the sweet sound of a tube amp.

    POD HD and my amp...

    I just figured from the youtube demos I seen. The sound differed quite a bit mic'd vs DI / USB....
  26. You don't have to worry about the hole placement hitting anything. But, I bought two Warmoth necks with the side adjusting Gotoh box and I won't buy another. I managed to crack the one adjusting box, with very little effort, making it useless. So after that I had to remove the neck to make adjustments. The Gotoh box is made of pot metal and not very sturdy, IMO. My next Warmoth neck will have the truss rod adjustment at the headstock.

    POD HD500X and HD500 - Sharing Patch Settings

    NO There is no difference between the two units. It is a waste of money to buy one if you own the other. There are literally the same unit. because you are new, I will say the same thing I say to all new people this is not a wah or volume pedal. this is an expression pedal. you have to assign things to it in order for it to work. putting a wah or volume pedal in the signal chain is not enough. you have to also assign the exp pedal to the effect. I say this to make sure that it is the pedal not working and not just a "oh, that is how you do it" situation Also, and depending on what you mean by "it doesn't work", many of us have shaved the rubber that is underneath the pedal. it makes activating easier. You know, just in case it is the on/off part that isn't working.
