  1. There are 2 monitoring solutions at your disposal and you should enable/use only one of them at a time, which one depending on your needs. If you enable the DAW track monitoring (which has latency) you should disable the POD direct hardware monitoring by opening its asio driver control panel and turning down to zero the hardware monitoring level. (Tip: use this monitoring solution only if you need to run live a IR loader plugin or other effects plugins in your DAW) If you choose instead to use the POD direct hardware monitoring (zero latency) open the POD asio driver control panel and turn up the hardware monitoring, and disable the DAW track monitoring, otherwise you get 2 same monitoring signals at the same time and out of phase to each other. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  2. As already suggested your monitor expects a Line level signal but the POD XLR can give only a Mic level signal. If your monitor has a LINE/MIC switch it should be set to MIC if you connect the POD XLR, otherwise the only solution is to connect a standard jack and set the 1/4" OUT switch near the pedal to LINE. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  3. Probably the Volume pot needs to be cleaned or replaced. Pull off the corresponding plastic knob and with a cotton swab apply a little isopropyl alcohol on the metal shaft, put the plastic knob back in place and turn the pot several times. If this solution does not solve the problem the pot must be replaced. Before trying the cleaning porcedure as a temporary workaround you could park the Volume knob at the minimum position before selecting your patches. Doing so the jittery pot phenomenon should stop happening until the pot remains parked at zero. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  4. When the POD driver is installed the POD is automatically set as the main audio interface, therefore as soon as you plug the POD to the USB it takes place of any AI that was working just before. Solution: as soon as you plug the POD to the USB open the windows audio control panel and select the AI that you want to be the main one. Done that the system should remember your choice forever, or at least until a new audio driver is intalled again. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  5. Use a DAW software (eg Reaper, Cubase, etc.) and set the POD as its audio interface, find online and install an IR loader plugin you like, select a track in the DAW and arm it for recording and apply the IR loader plugin as an effect, enable track monitoring in the DAW, and via the POD audio driver control panel disable direct hardware monitoring, disable the amp model cab in the POD patch and load your IRs through the IR loader, to reduce latency as much as possible of your live playing reduce the driver buffer (again via the control panel of the driver) to the value just before the one where audio problems such as interruptions, crackles etc. start to happen. Discover the external IRs world... (obviously you need to already have some IRs at your disposal to try) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  6. Before buying an IR loader box it would be advisable to try one in plugin format to get an idea of what the results would be in using external IRs in place of the POD cab models (which for the record are also based on IRs).. Here follows an old post by Logidy, the maker of an IR loader device: _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  7. Given that your Boss FV500H can work as Volume pedal or Expression pedal (which are 2 very different ways of working) are you sure that you connected its proper "EXP" jack to the POD "Pedal 2" input? If by any chance you connected the Boss FV500H "OUTPUT" to the POD "Pedal 2" input jack it could never work. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  8. Any professional technician could do the USB controller chip replacement job.. the spare chip you need is called CY7C68013A-56PVXC, you can see it in the pic below here: the chip costs about 10 euro.. you can easily find it through online electronics stores in your country.. In regard to the power supply if the specs of the one you have are 9V 3A as written in the linked ad it should work perfectly _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  9. It has happened to several people that the breaking of the USB port of the POD also causes damaging to its USB controller chip and that therefore it is necessary to replace the latter as well (and not the entire circuit board as you have been told). If done professionally the repair would cost at least 150 euros or dollars, a used POD can be bought for 200, so do your evaluations. If the USB system (port + chip) does not work it is impossible for the device to be recognized and to do anything that requires interaction with a computer. The power supply also has its importance and must have certain characteristics, read the following old post: https://line6.com/support/topic/53649-pod-hd500x-9v-adapter-not-plugging-in-power-input/?do=findComment&comment=321419 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  10. I believe so, but I cannot guarantee it .. as far as I know the POD HD500 and the HD500X (currently I have them both) differ in the processor, footswitches and probably the screen (since it has a slightly different backlight), even the bottom panel is a little different .. IMO there would have been no reason to switch Pots between one POD version and and the other, but who knows. The reference site for finding Line6 parts has always been www.fullcompass.com, but IIRC doesn't ship outside the US, and I don't know why it's been denying me access lately. IIRC in a past search for the same Pot via fullcompass in the compatibility list there was also the HD500X, but I can't say for sure. Sorry but I can't do more than this to help you. Good luck with your search. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

    Notch Filter?

    Use the Parametric EQ.. Here is a useful video clip showing how to use it as a notch filter.. and here you can see a table with the correspondences between values expressed in percentages in the Parametric EQ in the POD and the values in Hz: http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/eq#effects-param _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  12. What are you looking for? Pots or encoders? The amp model controls knobs and the device Master volume knob are Pots, the multifunction rotary knobs below the screen are encoders, the setlist/preset selector rotary knob on the left of the screen is an encoder with switch. Here is the 10KB Linear Taper 25mm D-Shaft Pot: https://www.proaudioservice.co.uk/product/line-6-pot-mono-10kb-linear-taper-25mm-d-shaft-01-48-0103-qn170601/ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  13. No. Actually the Editor "owns" only the temporary new settings made during the Editor use current session, ie still not saved to make them permanent. When you open the Editor it just reads the data and settings from the POD and then displays them as they are on the screen, included the last patch you were working on but still not saved. If you make new adjustments in the Editor to one or more patches, the Editor remembers them all one by one but only until you close the program. If you want the new adjustments made to become permanent you must send the modified patches from the editor to the device before closing the editor. In regard instead to your still recurring BSOD issues the last suggestion I could give is to try to uninstall the current driver and install another version, I believe that in the DOWNLOADS section there are at least 2 versions available. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  14. The physical Master knob affects only the device standard outputs but doesn't affect at all the signal passing through the USB. All the other controls (which you can find also in the Editor) affect everything, included the signal passing through USB. So as an example if the Master knob is set at zero you hear nothing from your headphones or speakers connected to the POD, but the signal will be still present unaffected through the USB and going in your recording software (DAW). If as another example you turn down at zero the mixer block faders in the chain, you get no signal at all through both USB and standard outputs. Basically when you record something in your DAW the controls in the chain are what really affect the final signal to be recorded, and the device Master knob is just your monitor volume level. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  15. What pianoguyy said above.. The device physical controls of the amp model behave like those in the editor, eg 25% in a physical control corresponds to 25% of the corresponding control in the Editor. But the physical Master control (which is only the general volume of the device) of the POD (not to be confused with the master volume control of the amp model in the Editor) exists only on the device and not in the editor. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
