  1. The built in tuner on/off function is not assignable to any other footswitch.. but if you have a (small) midi controller you could use it to control it or simply use a headstock tuner _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  2. 1) Disconnect all the cables connected to the device included the USB one 2) Unplug the power cable from the POD 3) Plug in the power cable while holding the down nav button 4) Connect the unit via USB to the computer (you should hear a sound that a device has been recognized) 5) Open Monkey (it should identify the POD) 6) Install the latest firmware (better if by choosing the "offline mode" and loading the right firmware file previously downloaded manually), possibly not retaining the old patches when asked during the procedure 7) If it doesn't work after the first try repeat the above procedure several times until it does 8) If still no joy check the power supply, perhaps it no longer gives the amount of current needed: 9V 3A; check also the POD USB port, if broken there is nothing you can do except bringing the unit to a technician for repair _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  3. Mysterious choices by Line6.. Same thing with the smaller brothers of the HD500. Both the HD300 (the one above in the pic) and the HD400 (same modeling engine of the HD500) have the dual output (exactly what you would need), but the HD500 does not. And people wonders: why does the flagship device of a series, in addition to having its special features, also not have all the useful ones of the smaller models? _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  4. Please forgive me, in my previous answer I did not understand your problem well, and I thought that you needed to route patches with cab active and patches with cab deactivated differently, while instead you need to route the same patch in two different ways at the same time, one with cab and the other without. I'm sorry, but there is no way to be able to do this with the HD500. The presence or absence of the cab is part of the amp model parameters and cannot be separated by the amp in any way. The Helix series can do this since the cab can be separate and independent, and the routing possibilities are much more advanced. EDIT: But wait!!.. I still have another idea. If the available DSP resources of the POD allow it, you could create a patch with 2 same amps, one with cab and the other without, and then insert the FX LOOP in only one of the 2 paths, by doing so you should get what you need: eg from the SEND you get the cabless tone , and from the standard outputs the cab included tone. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  5. Unfortunately with the HD500 it is possible to choose only one output mode valid for all outputs. However, for some patches it is possible to take advantage of the alternative (mono & stereo capable) SEND output (on the rear panel) which you could manage via the FX LOOP block that you can place at the end of the chain in order to divert the signal path towards the SEND output (just before the standard outputs). So for example patches that include cab can use the standard outputs and patches without cab can use the SEND output. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  6. With the POD the most transparent uncolored bypass signal is achievable by setting the patches input impedance parameter to 3.5 megaohm (but 1 megaohm would suffice, which is the same input impedance value of most guitar amps). https://www.blackstaramps.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=487&start=20 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  7. I don't know if it was your case or not, but sometimes when creating and saving patches while a second (external) expression pedal is connected (and recognized), once the second pedal is no longer connected the automatic assignment (internally, not manageable by the user) of its function to the only available pedal doesn't happen as you would expect. In short, patches created with the second pedal present work 100% as expected as long as the second pedal is connected. This problem can also affect downloaded patches if their creator had the second pedal connected and the end user does not have it. In this (and previous) case, recreating and saving the patch without a second pedal connected makes sure that the only pedal available works correctly as both EXP2 and EXP1. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  8. the one reported above here is your error.. your guitar must be connected to the POD, not to the Scarlett.. The POD is your guitar signal processor, ie that thing that makes/processes the sound of your guitar as you like. If you don't connect your guitar to it the POD does just nothing in your reported configuration. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  9. None of the Looper functions and parameters (like Loop volume) can be controlled by the pedal.. and even if it was possible the Looper FX (which is external to the chain) delivers a mono output and so it would not even be possible to take advantage of a stereo separation to treat 2 channels L and R differently. For your needs you need an external Looper equipped with more functions. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  10. The appreciable differences between one model and another of the same family (LP in this case) are there and can be clearly heard (at least on my 700).. if they weren't there it would have been rather stupid to implement some models with different names but which sound the same one to the other .. With regard to Line6 models, each parameter/part available affects the final sound in a different way, and rather than measuring their faithfulness to the corresponding real things it is important to note how they affect the final sound in the various possible combinations.. I still use a 700 and among the Gibsonian default models created by L6 my favorites are the LP Junior and the ES 335, but among the real guitars I also like the LP Standard, and the SG which in the Variax is not specifically modeled but can be built/simulate via the workbench.
  11. As already suggested, in your case you need to use a real (not modelled) power amp and it should be connected between your POD and your cab by using standard jack cables. If you instead connected the POD directly to the PA or to a powered/active monitor, no real additional power amp would be needed. You can easily find handy power amps in the form of stomp boxes, small and affordable, such as the EHX 44 Magnum Guitar Power Amp.

  13. Who knows, maybe the solution given in the following old post by LloydN83 could work also for you: <<Hi I know OP might have sold his HD by now. HD300 user here.. But for others who's been having this issue just unplug, press and hold save button while plugging in, toggle the drive knob which will give you input choices (guitar, usb left, usb right) keep it on guitar, unplug and plug again... Solved! I almost cried when this happened and thought my beloved HD300 have died on me, and I couldnt afford a replacement as of now... Hope this helps some poor sap like my self! Keep on playing!>> original post -->> https://line6.com/support/topic/5202-no-input-and-output-on-hd-300/?do=findComment&comment=223908 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  14. No, there is not a way to change the above behavior. Every time you engage the tuner it stops the looper playback and furthermore it erases all loops recorded. If you need a tuner during looper mode you have to use an external device. The tuner bypass mode (as opposed to mute mode) is to let the unprocessed guitar signal passing through the outputs so you can hear it while tuning the strings. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  15. The power amp RETURN input of guitar amps expects LINE level signals, set the POD output accordingly _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
