  1. anyone else having issues?? my audio is now a slowed down garbled mess, have uninstalled and reinstalled a million times.. I also changed MB and CPU recently so that could also be the issue but everything else seems to run just fine

    sound discrepancy in USB and 1/4 line out

    I eliminated all that by running my hd 500 into a UX2 and then in to the pc... the usb/spdif of the hd 500 changes the sound, running line out into a different interface fixed that
  3. resolved, kinda anyway, apparently the new update doesn't like my USB hub...hooking straight in the UX2 is working fine
  4. Me on right, original's left track on left... used haas effect to blend them brit 2204 with a tube driver in front (Amp B 82,m 60,t 60,p 0 gain about 35%, volume 50%.. tube drive all tones @ 50%, outputs about 50%, drive 20% or so).. did not mess with any amp or Cab DEP nor change the cab or mic Hd 500 is ran thru a pod UX2 (Because I have global EQ set to a 2.5k 3.5db cut, q is 1.6) in the DAW (Reaper) I have an EQ set for a low cut of 100 and a high cut of 6k... both taper off.. the high cut tapers all the way to 10k and the low cut down to about 50hz and I have a plate reverb in the DAW ignore the bad playing..been about a year since I played the song and my memory was not so great http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=13099395&q=hi

    HD500X: NO 1/2 step tuning!

    I've never found an acceptable pitch up/down.. they all sound terrible... as an alternative to retuning, why not just throw the mp3 in a daw and transpose it....I did the whole GNR Appetite album a while back.. got it in e flat and e standard

    Any clue on how to give more "body" to D string?

    well it IS common sense...lol.. the pod doesn't know which string is which, it only processes what it gets from the guitar...

    Any clue on how to give more "body" to D string?

    better strings, better pickups... adjust the pole pieces on humbuckers (Can't on single coil) if it sounds good on E string, the d string SHOULD sound the same tonally as far as the Pod see's it... the problem is whats going INTO the pod... if the d string sounds weak, it is likely not being pickuped as well, so it is guitar/string related issue

    Run HD PRO X into AMP and use AMP SIM on second path

    only way I've done it as above, amp sim, panned left, and drop an amp into the right path, then turn it off... gets you a nice pass thru clean signal, panned right.. then on the back left out goes to amp/speaker/usb interface, whatever you wish to use...., right out goes into your amp to use it as a normal clean guitar into amp setup.... oh and the input needs to be set as guitar/guitar, otherwise left and right won't work correctly...(IE no sound from the right channel cause the right will be looking at a different input then guitar) same doesn't even net the right result.. gotta be guitar/guitar

    Variax for ANY guitar......

    dunno if anyone thinks it would be a good idea or not, submitted it to idea scale http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/any-guitar-variax-interface/741201-23508?submitted=1 the idea is made a replacement bridge (Or just saddles) for the various types, that runs to a box to turn any guitar into a variax ..they could sell them fro $100 a pop and make a killing I mean variax is basically just the individual pizzo saddle pickups on the variax guitars.... anyway Figured I'd post this for anyone that thinks it might be a cool idea....

    Variax for ANY guitar......

    ehhh..those prices are ridiculous.. me thinks it could be done for 1/4 of what they are asking

    Helix?? What is it???

    Rmove Line 6 Audio-midi devices

    ummm dunno about win 8 but if there is still a device manager, find the driver (with pod plugged into usb), right click and uninstall.. unplug the pod and reboot

    Model Pack Mix and Match, PLEASE LINE 6!!!!!!

    hmmm..if it is amp models you will use, then it is NOT too late int eh cycle... other wise, why not just wit until the next thing hits if thats the route you are going anyway... I find the whole notion pretty ridiculous... I don't buy gear or models or software based on life cycle, I buy it on whether I will use it or not. IF another device comes out, will the HD 500 stop working?? stop being usable for your needs??...
  14. Studio Direct into the return on my 50 watt SS Marshall.. sounds Killer... much better than the SS's preamp...need to get a V-30 or greenback speaker for it though.. it comes with the $60 budget speaker thingy that doesn't have good low end...

    Feedback as requested: AXE FX II XL+

    you know I had forgotten about the line in's... dug out an extra cable, set the driver to line in stereo and bam... great stereo sound!! thanks!!... now stereo effects work correctly you don't have to use gearbox or pod farm though.. just set the daw to use the ux2 and the pod hd's tonesa will come hrough

    simple, guitar into pod hd, line out (Left) from hd 500 into guitar in on UX2, then ux2 to PC via usb... use UX2 for monitoring and select it in your DAW as input and output

    Feedback as requested: AXE FX II XL+

    depends on how you record.. mine is ran from line out of the HD 500 into my pod studio UX2 and THAT is my usb interface, so global EQ works just fine that way

    Does the HD500x come with all amps?

    if input 2 is set to same (Or guitar) then the input volume is effectively doubled so you drive the simulated amps a little harder, sometimes thats good, sometimes it isn't...IF you have really hot pickups, I would set input 2 to variax or something that will not allow it to double the guitar input Variax is a type of guitar line 6 sells that has pizzo saddles that allows alternate tunings, acoustic sim etc, without altering the guitar tuning at all...so if input one is set to guitar-variax-aux it will allow any of the 3 inputs to be main input source. If, for example, it was just set to aux, then the guitar in wouldn't work to produce sound

    the low and high are fixed with the global eq, running line out into an interface...low cut and high cut get rid of boomy and harsh high end... makes tweaking infinitely easier and better
  20. I guess I didn't understand the question.. for me, running the HD into my UX2 (line out into the UX2's input) I do not hear guitar unless I arm and monitor the track in ANY DAW.. the Pod studio UX2 is my soundcard/usb interface
  21. depends on the DAW.. most will let you set the output separate from the input... you will get bad latency though...enough that it is impossible to play along...and record... as for question 2, no, but you can leave hdedit running in the background and turn off the amp from it (Any effects will still be running though

    How to record one single, MONO tone??

    My HD is run left (Mono) into my pod ux2 input then via usb into the PC for recording, so thats one mono output..it is pretty straightforward...int eh Mixer (HDedit) you can leave the pod panned left right or set both to center.. stereo FX of course will nto sound right since it is one channel mono and centering it will mono the stereo so a pan wouldn't have any effect for example. or a left/right delay.. but for just straight up dry sound (Add effects later) it works very well

    Wah pedal problem...tried everything...

    my vote goes to the wrong Exp being set...after the last firmware My onbaord Exp pedal is now exp 2 instead of exp 1... dunno why it changed or how to fix it other than change the patches to 2

    Does the HD500x come with all amps?

    make sure you are looking at the correct Packs... the Metal HD doesn't have a mesa or an uber (Thats already on the pod).. it has a new jcm 800 2204, a 5150 (Panama), A bogner and some from the previous pod's that are not HD...
