  1. Awesome. I'll try that. I read something about changing a stomp versus line switch on the back. Should I do that as well? Does the studio/direct disable the cab simulator/mic/AIR as well?
  2. Also for this, if I were to run studio/direct mode do I just select no amp block? This is assuming going into the front of the amp and using my Mesa Boogie to do all the clean and dirty switching.
  3. I understand this, but seriously I can barely here the clean amp on 100% volume. I couldn't even handle the volume of the dirty amp on 100%. It would be WAY too loud. There must something I am missing. I'm wondering if somehow I have it panned right or left on the mixer block that goes after the amp blocks. Maybe if its panned hard to one side and I'm using the mono output for the wrong side this could happen. It's not muted though. It's just barely audible. Hmmm.
  4. Cool, thanks for bringing that up. I'm looking at the manual for that now. I'm assuming you are talking about page 18. http://line6.com/data/6/0a06434c6fb051e03e8ab63dc/application/pdf/POD%20HD500X%20Advanced%20Guide%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf
  5. Hi, I've owned a HD500x for a few years and I'm struggling with a few things. Mostly the volume between patches. I play in Soundgarden/Audioslave tribute band and I'm using the HD500x straight into the effects return on a Mesa Boogie Roadster 2 x 12" combo amp. So I am basically bypassing the Mesas awesome pre-amps and using it as a speaker and all my effects and amp modeling are done by the HD500x. I gave up on the 4-cable method after a few gigs which left me very disappointed. It's sad to see my Mesa become a speaker. But I digress. I have a patch set up for each song as required. I've figured out how to have dual tones setup and assign a FS to switch between amps where one volume is at 0 and the other at 100% and this is switched nicely with an FS. However, I really can't get the clean channel to sound loud enough. What am I doing wrong? I'm noticing it when I use the Blackface 'Lux Vib - '64 Fender® Deluxe Reverb® Vibrato and Treadplate - 2001 Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®. I've been trying to use the volume and master volume to match the volumes like you would on a multichannel tube amp but I am failing. I should say that I have checked all the obvious problems such as guitar volume knob and the expression pedal. It's not those things. Can I pick a better clean amp and push it with a compressor or clean boost? Frustrating! Another question, how can I get a 20db bump when I engage the wah? All my solos are getting lost. It's really odd. I'm also wondering if I can just use the HD500x for effects and bypass the amp modeling and plug it into the front of my amp.
  6. Hi all, Sorry for the newb question but I am a new Line6 User and new to the forum. I am trying to find POD HD500X patches for a very specific band project. I'm in a TOOL / A Perfect Circle cover band and I need some patches to approximate Adam Jones and Billy Howerdel rigs. I've seen 2 decent ones for Adam but only for other multi effects units (i.e. PODxt, TonePort or PODxtLive). Is there a way to convert these? I'm really surprised to see that these patches are not compatible. I could really use some help or advice! Thanks! -Mike Billy Howerdel patches for other multipeffects units. http://line6.com/customtone/tone/206736/ http://line6.com/customtone/tone/198180/ http://line6.com/customtone/tone/194148/ Adam Jones http://line6.com/customtone/tone/887910/ http://line6.com/customtone/tone/885873/ http://line6.com/customtone/tone/881337/ -Mike
