    POD HD 500X - Factory Reset Procedure Video

    Thanks silverhead. Didn't make sense to me that doing a firmware installation is a factory reset. When I think of factory reset I think of how my POD was when I bought it, with none of the firmware updates installed. I will definitely try re-installing the HD Edit program and the Line 6 driver first. By the way, I"m in Ontario Canada as well. Thanks for your help.
  2. I wanted to reset my POD HD500X back to the factory presets but it seems that the video that's available by LIne 6 Tony is not correct. This video shows you how to update the firmware using Line 6 Monkey, not how to reset the unit back to its factory settings. I've found some other videos on you tube but to be honest, I'm not sure I want to attempt this unless the procedure was created by Line 6. Is there anywhere on the site that actually shows how to do this or has written instructions by Line 6? I find this a bit disconcerting since I own a few Line 6 products. Doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling at all. Sometimes a factory reset is the only way to fix the POD when it starts to glitch. Thanks.

    Copying a Patch not working

    I think I'm going to try a complete factory reset of my POD. I'm having issues with the volume and wah assignments. They should automatically be assigned to Exp-2 and Exp-1 respectively but it's not happening. The wah stays on Exp 2 and there's nothing on Exp-1.

    Copying a Patch not working

    I tried the Alt/Crtl drag and drop and it worked. I did double click on the original patch to make sure it was the active preset and then double clicked on the new location to make it active ( a blank at that point). Well, at least one method worked.

    Copying a Patch not working

    Double clicking in step 4 did not work. I noticed that the asterisk that normally shows up when you change anything in the patch indicating a save should be made never shows up. I disconnected the usb and was able to copy the patch from 1A to 1B no problem. Re-connected the usb to the board and started up the HD editing program. Both locations have the patches in the editor now. Guess it's a glitch with the editor?

    Copying a Patch not working

    Okay. Step 1. Right click on the patch to be copied. (it gets highlighted) Step 2. Right click again on the patch to be copied. The menu comes up with the choice of actions., copy, cut, etc. Step3. Left click on the Copy option. Step 4. Left click on the new location to place the copied patch. Step 5. Right click on the mouse to bring up the paste function. Step 6. Left click on the mouse the paste function. At this point, the copied patch name appears in the new location but none of effects or amp are visible. If I click on the new location name it reverts back to a blank patch and the patch name disappears. Thanks.

    Copying a Patch not working

    I'm trying to copy an existing patch into another location on the same list in order to set it up for my single coil guitar but the usual copy/paste method is not working. I get the same patch name to show up in the location but none of the effects or amps show up. I've done a search on the forums and there's nothing about this happening. It seems simple enough to do but for some reason it's not working. Am I missing a step or is there a problem with my POD? Thanks.
  8. Thanks kindly for your help. I had a feeling that might be it. Cheers!

    Levelling volume between clean and distortion

    Thanks for the advice.
  10. I've been trying to assign two effects to one footswitch so that I can toggle between the two, turning one on and the other off and vice-versa. The issue I'm having is that I can't get the footswitch indicator to light for the effect I want it to show when lit. I'm using a compression and a distortion effect and I'd like the indicator to light when I have the distortion turned on and the indicator light to be blank when I have the compressor turned on. I can get it to work but it's in the reverse order to what I want. I tried to look this up in the manual but it doesn't really explain how to do it, just that you can either have two effects on or off at the same time or have one on and one off and vice-versa when using a single footswitch. Is there some kind of order that needs to be followed? Thanks

    Understood. Thanks for your help.

    Levelling volume between clean and distortion

    Ok, got it. I've had my master at the same level and don't change it between patches. Thanks.

    Volume Issue Using Wah Wah with Exp1

    Thanks for clarifying and for your help.

    Volume Issue Using Wah Wah with Exp1

    Thanks, that makes sense. That's why I assigned an expression block to the volume pedal and the wah to exp-1. I have a separate wah pedal that I could plug into my POD. Thanks for your help with this. I probably should review the manual as well as it's been a while since I read it and worked with my POD.

    Levelling volume between clean and distortion

    Could you explain about the Master volume? Does this mean it has no effect on the output?
