  1. The compact only has "tone match" for an acoustic guitar...the compact isn't the full L1 I only use the un-filtered straight in 1/4" input on the compact. I don't even use the XLR input at all as it has a compressor and feedback suppressor built in (it's designed for vocals) that you can't turn off. So to hear your tone in an FRFR manner...use only the 1/4" input without the "acoustic guitar" switch. I want to hear what my tone sounds like as un-colored by the amplification as possible.
  2. Back in the 1990's when I first started using modeling...I had the Boss GT 5 And the way they did it was you could tweak an amp model or an effect and save that "Block" (though that's not what they were called) and it showed up in your choices of amps and effects (with the name you gave it...I would just add my first name to them lol "Robbie Marshall" or "Robbie Delay") Always wondered why the Line 6 stuff didn't do that too. Not my old Vetta or the HD 500 or the Helix. :(
  3. Yes, you would have just enough juice total to do that.
  4. Definitely need more snaps. I just got the Morningstar MC6 MKII midi controller. And I have it set up to access 5 snaps and the tuner. It's awesome. But of course 2 of the snaps are on a different preset so I lose trails from the delay with them. I could easily put all of them on one preset, but being limited to 3 snaps screws me. :( I'd also like to see the name of the snapshot displayed on the Stomp screen instead of the name of the preset when in stomp view. Having the preset name and just a number for the snap sucks visually.
  5. I'd like to get more snapshots (5 would do for me) and the ability to use an external footswitch to choose snapshots. That would give me 5 buttons and 5 snapshots.
  6. Used mine last night onstage subbing on guitar with The Tenors Of Rock show at Planet Hollywood on the Vegas Strip. Set up an external 2 switches. One switch for preset up and one for down. Worked great and sounded awesome EDIT: I use snapshot mode on the HX Stomp by the way. Thus the external switches for Preset Up & Down.
  7. Ugh...I was hoping to be able to make that happen. :( Sounds like it would require buying a midi controller that has the ability to name the snapshots on it's screen instead. Kinda makes the portability of the HX Stomp lose it's appeal if I have to add another floorboard.
  8. Anybody? I'd love to be able to see the name of the snapshot on the display of the HX Stomp. You know: Crunch, Lead, Clean for instance instead of just the preset name (which I don't need) and the snapshot "number" I could use just the Preset number along with the Snapshot Name on the Stomp display. That makes a whole lot more sense for use in a live setting onstage.
  9. Can the morningstar mc6 switch snapshots instead of presets? In other words could I have it set up so that the 6 buttons on the mc6 select the three snapshots of preset 1 on the lower 3 buttons and the 3 snapshots of preset 2 on the upper 3 buttons of the unit? That way I have 6 sounds at my feet with the HX Stomp without having to do any "dancing" on the Stomp itself.
  10. Got that done. Now my question is: How do I make the name of the Snapshots display on the HX screen instead of the name of the Preset?
  11. To each their own. But I found that the hd 500 sounds best with a tube amp. No fake EQ'ing to get rid of fizz or mud. It just sounds "right". And the DT50 sounds awesome all by itself with it's HD amp models built into it then hitting those tubes. I felt like the Helix came real close for me to sounding like a tube amp. I used a Bose L1 compact for FRFR for a few years with it. So yeah...I do think they can come close. And I enjoyed it. But the real tubes change the equation so much better. I even used an ART tube preamp with my Helix in one of the effects loops to "warm" up it's sound. But anyway...my point to the thread is: Compared to Helix, and compared to full on tube amp...the HD 500 with the DT50 holds it's own rather nicely and is perfect for my backup rig.
  12. The tubes are definitely the secret sauce
  13. So I used to have the original "Dream Rig" setup that I bought back in 2009. In 2015 I sold my HD 500 and got a Helix. Sold that a few months ago and got myself the Mesa TC-50 amp. Back to using a 4x12 and tubes and it sounds so damn good. Anyway, I've had this DT50 amp sitting here for forever. And I figured...."Make a backup rig, just in case". So I plugged the DT50 in and played through it. Sounds great! So I went and bought a new HD500X so I could have effects and clean, crunch, and lead amp sounds. I forgot how damn good the HD500 sounds when combined with the DT50 tubes. And "no", I'm not using the L6 link. It sounds okay...but "muffled" and "fizzy" all at the same time. I'm running straight into the effects return of the DT50 and just leaving the topography of the amp set on "IV". Using the preamp only models with cabs turned off. Sounds gorgeous!
  14. Selling my Helix Floor. It's in perfect shape and was factory serviced earlier this year by Line 6. Letting it go for $950. If you're interested just P.M. me. Accepting Paypal.
