    Tone test loop

    r u talkin'abt HD ? if yes, the answer is "use the built in looper".
  3. 1. navigate 2 the "CONTRLOLLERS" tab. 2. open "MODEL" combo-box 3. select "Tube Drive" 4. open the "FS ASSIGN" combo-box 5. select "FS4" done :)
  4. Aris tks, I will try ur suggestions and post results in a part 4 comparison vid. In my opinion the sound quality and not the quantity is of utmost importance. We know that the HX price is three times more than the HD price, so the point behind this comparison series vids was 2 explore whether the HX sound is also three times better than the HD sound. I'm trying 2 replicate the EXACT conditions the HX sound was produced/recorded in the sweatwater video. I only know that a helix plus a JTV69-USA was used with the selector switch in positions 3+5. I do not know: the input signal path; the variax mags/models mix; the fx chain and settings; the amp settings (assuming a plexi lead amp is used); the post processing applied in the HX sound (eq, mic recording,etc); So, in light of the abv, I'm proceeding using the trial 'n error method. In part 1 I started using the spank model pos.5 and the Son of Plexi preset. In part 2, I experimented with the variax mags and both inputs. I have found out that using variax mags and only one input (ie input1=variax mags, input2=aux) I get an almost 99% tone match (!). Now u say that with the danelectro model u can easily replicate 90% the sound (!!!) Clearly, it seems that the HD sound is very-very-close 2 the HX sound... So unless we get some really amazing HX sound samples, I really cannot c any reason at all 2 pay 1.5K only 4 having a fancy color ui and four stereo paths, fx loops, etc,etc, etc.... I consider a better 'n more powerful alternative 2 purchase THREE HD's instead and use then in tandem (imagine a stellar 6 channel sound with 6 amps!). :) ps in this comparison vid series, the hd sound is heard as recorded via usb in audacity; there is NO POST-PROCESSING whatsoever.

  6. three great woodstock guitarists (hendrix, lee, townshend) :D
  7. helix costs 3 times more than hd, hoping helix will be 3 times more reliable than hd :)

  10. alternate tunings by preset for a jtv in the HD500 support semitones. i understand u need 435/440=0.9886 u can achive as foll: 1. using Workbench HD create a variax detuned model by tweaking the "parallel pitch" feature (pitch=0, cents=-3 or -2). 2. set the "mix" parameter = 100% in each string. 3. save this model in custom 1/2 bank, or whichever other bank u wish. 4. set the jtv tuning knob="Model". 5. on ur hd500 preset, set jtv model accordingly (eg Custom1-5). http://www.mediafire.com/view/0r8ih8m8uln8l80/HD500_and_JTV_435_hz_tuning.PNG
  11. Part two is based on a three-riff-by-riff-comparison. A simple patch is used, based on the famous Son of Plexi factory preset slightly modified ( http://line6.com/customtone/tone/1111375/ ). The patch was built using stereo headphones 'n a pair of studio monitors. The patch is played with a v2.21 JTV 69s-Korean-black, connected thru VDI 2 a v2.62 HD500. The middle 'n neck magnetic pickups r used (standard from the factory), tone 'n volume knobs=100%. Strings: D'Addario NYXL0942 09-42 (heavily worn-out). The HD500 is set 2 “Studio/Direct†mode, global EQ off, both inputs 1 + 2 = variax mags. The three comparison riffs r recorded using Audacity (usb, not mic). Since the Helix signal path is currently undefined, the HD500 will also b tested with: input 1 = variax mags, input 2 = aux. If significant variations exist, a new vid will be posted....
