  1. No problem. Then the answer is no. There is no time function in the Pod.
  2. You could have a MIDI file that could be triggered on song start that has an automation track in it for the movement at the time code you need it in the song. You'd have to make that file in your DAW and send it to your drummer to trigger with the rest of the changes.
  3. Airport Express - buy the 2nd generation. The 1st did not work for me and 2 seconds after buying the new one (this is years ago) the setup took 5 seconds. I think any Apple USB to Ethernet adaptor bought in the last three years will work just fine. Safest, easiest path is buy the latest of both.
  4. You really should heed spaceatl's advice here. Even if you don't use the patch you build, it's worth starting from zero and learning your way through that way.
  5. * looks around * * stops making secret things in basement * Yup. Agreed.
  6. The drag and drop functionality does not work in my version of Mac (not sure why). So, while you can, and most people can, that should in no way devalue the knowledge put forth in explaining that the converter exists. He did use the word 'And...' Lots of options for sure.
  7. As the message says, do not remove the USB cable or remove an SD card from the slot when you are using the Stagescape as an audio output device. What are you trying to do? If you're playing audio from the MBP, you're better off with a 1/8" - 1/4" cable from the onboard sound card to an input on the mixer.
  8. We can never been entirely sure without a deeper explanation of your set up. However, I was finding a similar level when I first got my 500X and my HD500 Pro. What I did to better set up my patches was use a Boost, Studio EQ, or Vintage Pre in my first slot and use the gain on those to get more push of the front of the 'amp.' I went back and forth between all three of them and eventually settled on the Boost Comp. My experiment was my real Fender Twin Reverb '65 RI vs the Twin sim. If you don't have a real amp that is modeled by Line 6 that's a little harder. Anyway, I ended up pushing the front of the chain with the Boost Comp by 12db. That made the amp sim MUCH more responsive to the Hum, SAG, blah blah settings. It was a lot of work and I am not sure why it is set up technically how it is (I'm sure the electronics whizzes can help provide a better picture). But I was never happy with my results until I pushed things harder at the front with my various guitars. I hope that helps. This may not be great advice for everyone but it's what worked for me.
  9. something changed on your mac... Launch Terminal. Type "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES" in Terminal and press "Return." Hold 'Alt' right click on the Finder icon in the Taskbar, click 'Relaunch'. Then do you see the files? If you want to undo this, replace YES with NO in the above sequence and you're back to normal. If you saw them before and don't see them now, it's something mac-based.
  10. The Helix bag is a good option. https://shop.line6.com/helix-backpack.html (gives a 404 error currently)
  11. It got answered in another thread and in about 40 other threads. You've got to go to Security Preferences and allow Line 6 as a developer.
  12. Good tip. Glad you got it working for the newer Mac owners. The problem is this exact solution has been proposed in many other threads and it seems many aren't reading the solution. I hope your thread (or one with the solution in it) sticks to the top and people start reading threads a little more. Glad you got it working. Rock on!
  13. Great. All you really need is explained on B•2 in the HD500 Manual. https://l6c-acdn2.line6.net/data/6/0a06434dc1a55085c5d6532bf/application/pdf/POD HD500 Advanced Guide v2.10 ( Rev A ).pdf • Footswitches 1 - EXP are CC# 51-59. • Loading a Patch is on page B•3 - "Load a Preset within the current Set List: Send a Program Change message (Value 0-63 for Preset 01A - 16D) for the desired Preset within the current Set List."
  14. Have not used Showbuddy but yes you shouldn't have to touch your controller if you don't want to. Brokenbones has brought some good info. My question is are you wanting to take over running the entire show (start/stop) and have your changes triggered or are you wanting to be hands off and just play? My guess is the latter. If so, you just have to get your device into the MIDI chain into your MIDI In connector, choose a MIDI Channel that only your device will listen to commands on, and then have a solid list of changes you want made in the show. The director / producer / technician is not going to read your documentation for you, so you have to list every possible change and which MIDI Note or CC or Program Change you want when. My approach is organize the set list, never change it, get the Program Change at the start of each 'song' and then Note Values per footswitch I want to be triggered at the start of the Chorus or whatever. Sorry I can't help with ShowBuddy. I love that bands are doing this.
