  1. even if it's not ideal at least there is a working solution... same thing for the HX users on windows 11 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  2. Your Peavey KB/A 30 is a keyboard amp (very different than a guitar amp) and as such is a sort of FRFR type of amp, and it is equipped basically with 3 main channels: based on the downloadable dedicate operating guide: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/120950/Peavey-Kb-A-30.html channel 1 is optimized for MIC level (low) sources, channel 2 is optimized for LINE level (high) or acoustic sources (with input gain switch), channel 3 is optimized for LINE level (high) only sources. The best KB/A 30 channel to connect the POD is channel 3 (suited just for LINE), and the HD400 LINE/AMP switch on the rear panel should be set to LINE. (FYI the AMP option actually is for connecting the POD to guitar AMP front panel, not for connecting to keyboard amps, FRFR systems and monitors). Forget using/trying any 4CM (as suggested) with this amp, it would be only a useless waste of time. 4CM makes sense only with guitar amps. If you connect your devices as I suggested above and turn up the POD master volume knob you should get sound 100%. When doing the sound check make sure the POD is not connected to the computer because there is a Line6 audio driver setting (hardware monitoring) which if by chance is set to zero it mutes the POD outputs (live playing). I confirm that the POD button named "effects only" is to disable the amps simulation, but I would never use it except when playing acoustic. Electric guitars always need a real or modeled guitar amp to sound good, and using a keyboard amp or FRFR system/monitor is a good way to amplify a modeler. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

It seems Helix drivers have the same problem in windows 11: --> Latest drivers suddenly incompatible with Windows 11 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  4. The USB controller is probably also damaged.. If so, the spare chip you need is called CY7C68013A-56PVXC, you can see it in the pic below here: the chip costs about 10 euro/dollars.. you can easily find it through online electronics stores in your country.. but let a pro-technician do the replacement work Good luck! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  5. The correct way is: guitar goes to the POD guitar input, the POD send goes to the Mooer input, the Mooer output goes to the POD return, finally to hear the sound you can use the headphones or connect the POD outputs to a monitor or mixer. To make all the above working it is necessary to put a FX LOOP block in the chain of your patches; in this case the FX LOOP block represents the position of your Mooer in the chain. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  6. As you can see above here there are 2 possible connection schemes. The most flexible solution is undoubtedly the second one given that in that case depending on where you put the FX LOOP block in the chain of your patches the cab emulation can be where you want, eg before or after the time based FXs, whereas in the first solution the cab emulation could be only the last thing in the final chain. Guitar --> in-POD-send --> in-MOOER-out --> return-POD-out --> mixer/monitor/FRFR (put a FX LOOP block where you want in the chain) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  7. As with most pedals there should be a screw in the pivot on which it swings. By loosening or tightening it, you can adjust the pedal response from smooth to hard. I wouldn't put any lube on it unless it squeaks a lot. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  8. To actually hear the tempo change, the effect's "tempo sync" must be enabled by choosing a note value from the dedicated menu. If you are not using the editor, directly on the device choose a note value instead of milliseconds for the effect's tempo (or speed) parameter. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  9. To get a completely transparent, non-degraded bypass guitar signal when all effects are off, you need to set the input impedance parameter to 3.5 mega ohms or 1 mega ohm (no less, not AUTO). By default this is a per-patch setting, but it can also be set as "global" so that it no longer needs to be changed and saved for each patch. The default setting of the input impedance (AUTO) is to make sure that the guitar signal is influenced by the typical impedance value of the input of the first effect in the chain (on or off), therefore to obtain a better response fidelity of that specific chain of effects, but unfortunately the downside is that the complete bypass signal remains degraded. (In the guitar input (and only in this one) there is a physical circuit that adapts its input impedance according to how the input impedance parameter is set in the patch). The solution to your issue is the one given above,... or use the AUX input (1 mega ohm fixed) instead of the Guitar In _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  10. Yes, you can do it, but only if there is a way to configure your AI ADAT to S/PDIF (as suggested above by spanishmartin). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  12. In my opinion no, nothing particularly appreciable, the signal quality should still be pretty good. As for the DRY signal, in the patch used it is advisable to set the impedance parameter to 1 or 3.5 megaohm to get maximum transparency. A workaround for skipping the additional AD conversion is to use instead the POD as an audio interface, at least for recording guitar parts only. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  13. If your audio interface had been equipped with the S/PDIF digital input you could have connected the POD to it digitally, thus avoiding an additional AD conversion, but your AI is equipped with ADAT which despite being digital is not compatible with S/PDIF. So the only option is to connect the POD to your AI via standard cables. If you want to record the dry and wet signals at the same time you can create a patch where in path A (panned on the left) there are all the amp/FX models needed, and in path B (panned on the right) there is nothing. (The POD should be connected with both cables L and R) By recording 2 tracks simultaneously in the DAW, one having the POD Left output as input, and the other having the POD Right output as input, you get the 2 tracks, wet and dry. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  14. You can't with the HD500X, maybe yes with the HD Pro X. Communication via S/PDIF between POD HD500X and an audio interface is one way, the POD HD500X transmits but does not receive via S/PDIF. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  15. IMO the reason probably is because it costs less in terms of hardware resources, which they preferred to dedicate to sound quality, the same could be true for example for percentages instead of hertz in almost all available EQs. The HD hardware is exploited to the maximum, it is already a miracle that it does what it does, the design engineers have been very good at balancing resources, and some compromise on usability was probably necessary in order to maintain the highest possible sound quality. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  16. You should easily find plenty of them if you google "CY7C68013A-56PVXC" _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  17. What you have described is how the reverb (and probably other effects with the MIX parameter as well) of the POD works and there is no way to change it. The MIX percentage shown as a parameter actually corresponds only to the volume level of the wet signal, at 50 the wet has the same volume as the dry, at 100 the wet has twice the volume of the dry and the dry is suddenly cut. The dry has a constant volume from zero up to 99%. This way of functioning also means that the total volume of a patch changes according to how the MIX parameter is set. It is certainly not the ideal behavior but it can be easily fixed by ear. Another possible solution is to take advantage of the 2 paths, one only dry and the other only wet and create the mix as you want via the mixer block. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  18. There should be a sticker with the printed S/N attached to the bottom panel of the device. Anyway all it takes to download from Customtone is to be logged in with a Line6 account that you already have and are writing from. You don't need the S/N. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips

  20. ..actually the empty patch suggestion is only for sending the dry guitar signal (as it should be when tuning) to the tuner, not for muting the output. However if your tuner also has an output and has the "mute" function when it is engaged IMO the best solution would be to connect it between the guitar and the POD, or you could use instead a good clip-on tuner always applied on the guitar headstock _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  21. Yes, if you look at the switch "1/4" OUT" near the pedal is written LINE/AMP, ie the 2 possible output modes of the POD from that type of output. LINE mode corresponds to LINE OUT. Why waste time defining "mono" in this case when the OP only needs an additional signal to be sent to its external tuner from the 1/4" output? Rather I forgot to mention that when the OP wants to tune he better select an empty patch to send only the guitar signal to the tuner, and completely turn down the volume of the monitor/amp or mixer channel so as not to disturb the audience until he has finished tuning. Using instead the built-in tuner is much easier.. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  22. Even if there was an HX to HD patch converter, you would have much better luck looking for Clapton patches originally made for the HD series, you should easily find hundreds of them in Customtone. And anyway it is always better to build them yourself, based on your touch, instrument and equipment. If you need a starting idea on how to build pathes based on some well-known guitarists take a look here: Tone Templates _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  23. No, the VDI connector is only for connecting, controlling and powering Variax guitars, nothing else Yes, it is possible to connect the POD's S/PDIF to an audio interface equipped with a digital input Yes, the POD HD500X and POD HD Pro X are both equipped with 2 paths A and B, and for each of them it is possible to select a different input _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  24. You can do it, there are no drawbacks _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
  25. I use a PC therefore I don't know where some specific settings are on a MacBook. However the POD connected by USB to your MacBook is all you need. You should find the Logic audio settings and make sure the output is set to the POD. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ All about POD HD500/X help and useful tips
