  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. dunno if anyone thinks it would be a good idea or not, submitted it to idea scale


    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....

  5. 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??...

    This is what I've been doing from time to time except I run the HD500 1/4 outs into a TonePort UX2 Line inputs or KB37 Line inputs and record stereo using GearBox or PodFarm. Works great for me. The more I work with cutting offending frequencies with EQ's the happier I am. Although from time to time I like the sound of a raw amp.


    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

  7. Very interesting... I have the same devices but never used the like this... Care to tell me exact connectivity?

    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

  8. 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 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

  9. My HD is run left (Mono) into my pod ux2 input then via usb into the PC for recording, so thats one mono is pretty 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

  10. Rarely play with a pick I mostly use my two or three fingers and thumb for slap.


    Some styles on my acoustic bass with a more classical fingering.


    I feel I can get better rock feel with a fingered tone.


    Pick is fine but I am not as good with one

    It's what you get used to I suppose.. I've not had a bass that long and coming from guitar, a pick is just natural... and waaay faster for me than trying to use my fingers
