  1. Hey Power User, I can't seem to find the link you provided in your earlier post. Can you resend? Thanks
  2. What i have found is that if you build a preset in the POD with ALL you effects (volume pedal,Wah, etc etc etc etc.) and simply plug the guitar into the POD and then take the left output of the POD and plug into the effects Return of your amp YOU"RE GOOD TO GO!!!. By plugging into the Effects Return of your amp you are bypassing the pre-amp stage of your amp and using the POD's Preamp Models. (Which are better than 'pretty good') So essentially you can have the following: Preset 1 - Plexi (Incubus, ACDC, Classic Rock), Preset 2 - JCM800 (80's Rock), Preset 3 - Treadplate (Megadeath), Preset 4 - Blackface, Tweed, Vox, Hiwatt (Tom Petty etc) I have found that this way i get to use my POD 's tones more accurately while covering tunes ranging from Tom Petty to Megadeth. Just make sure when building your tones you build them at GIG VOLUME. This is important. you can always turn down and adjust general tone with an EQ. (I use a Mesa Boogie Mark IV, so i have an EQ on my amp, but you can use an EQ pedal also and get the same result) I also use my POD with the 4CM also but when i remember how i set it up i will post those settings. But i think someone covered that above already. I think the 'Effects Return' Method is more versatile. My 2cents
  3. I could have SWORN it uploaded... When i get home from work later this evening i'll get it sorted. SMH
  4. Not sure if anyone would need this but here it is anyway. When i got my POD (being a first time user) i thought it would be a good idea to back up the factory presets in case i did some DUMB lollipop...
  5. Hi Everyone, Does anyone have a patch for "Smashing Pumpkins - Zero" for the POD HD500x I need theRhythm and solo patch. I've tried to do this and failed miserably... Ended up with a total pitch shifting MESS... Can anyone help? Regards, Hickdood

  8. Sorry for the NUBE question... When you purchase the Amp model pack do you get the 'Pre Amp' versions of the full amp models also? Regards, Hick dood
  9. Hi Guys I have received A LOT OF HELP from a number of members (DunedinDragon, Cruisinon2, redmonda) and to you i say... THANK YOU... I think i'm making some headway with this thing and I have attached a JPG of how i have decided to run my pedal board. I am using a Gibson Les Paul into a Mesa Boogie Mark IV and i'm using the 4CM or sometimes i will just plug my POD into the effects return of my amp and bypass the pre amp section depending on the gig. I think this is one of the easiest ways to get a consistent tone for whatever sound your trying to get. I would set banks ABCD to whatever pre amp i feel like playing that day (I ONLY USE THE "PRE AMP" MODELS if i'm gonna go into my Mark IV TUBE AMP.) A- Blacface 'Lux. B- Tweed B Man, C- JCM800 or Plexi 100. D- Treadplate I use FS 1234 as standard pedals to stomp on or off as i see fit FS1- Screamer FS2- Chorous FS3- Delay -short FS4- I have left blank so i can assign any pedal i need/want for specciffic tones like a V-troUnivibe, since i dont use regularly FS5- Tube Drive FS6- Phaser FS7- Delay - long FS8- Solo boost (i use a jumper cable from the POD's Effectls return and send and set the Return level to 6 or 10 DB. (It's like a clean boost) So on any given day if the band i am playing with is a blusey kinda band, I'll use the Blackface or Tweed amp and if i'm playing metal i'll use the Treadplate or JCM 800 bank I hope this helps someone. If anyone has any questions just drop me a note.
  10. I Think i'm getting somewhere with this

  11. I am thinking of ways to use my Line 6 POD HD500x in a Live setting. My plan is to split the foot switches. Use 1-4: for the Clean effects. Chorus, Delay, Reverb etc. Use 5-7: for the Distortion/Overdrive effects. i don't really need many foot switches for effects because i like my distortion/overdrive as pure as can be, so i only need 2 or 3 spaces for effects such as: Reverb, Solo Boost etc. Footswitch 8: I can designate as an amp switcher to switch between my clean and my Distortion/Overdrive amps. Does this make any sense to anyone (see Jpg)?
  12. Thanks DunedinDragon. Now i think i'm, getting somewhere. Option 1 1. Use the Effects return of the amp 2. Program patches in the band room
  13. Thanks for your response Cruisinon2. 1. I'm Programming my Patches using my headphones at home because OBVIOUSLY i can't plug in the Boogie and play at Band-room/Gig Levels. Does this make any sense? or shall i just program my patches for each song in my band room at the levels i am gonna be playing at and just keep the headphones thing for practice at home kinda thing? 2. I TOTALLY AGREE with you on running the POD in front of the amp... Any Suggestions on how i should set up the POD to run in the Return of the Boogie? (Combo front, Studio Direct, Combo Pwer amp etc...) 3. Another thing. Is it worth my while to use the 4CM (Four cable method) and if so what output settings should i use in the POD for the 4CM? (Combo front, Studio Direct, Combo Power amp etc...) Where should i put the 'effects loop' icon in the chain. A step by step tutorial would help immensely for this, as in... Step 1: Run cables Step 2: Set POD to Whatever Step 3: Build effect chain (Compressor, Distortion, Modulation, Reverb) and where to put the effects loop icon in the chain. Step 4: I am reading about UNITY GAIN, but can find anything that sows me step by step how to achieve it with the Mesa Boogie Mark IV. Step 5: Where is the master output volume on the POD supposed be? How does using the 4CM benefit me in a live show? Is it worth all the extra mess of cables? 4. I'm in a bit of a mess here. I'm getting good tones outta my POD. I'm getting great tones outta my Boogie... How do i get the two to play nice? I would like to use the POD for: Gate, Compression, Solo Boosts, a little chorus and delay on clean tones, Wah, Volume pedal. Sorry if i may be repeating myself. I guess there is no substitute for just messing around with the POD... I can't help but feel a little overwhelmed here. I just want to get a GREAT SOUND with the tools i have. Thanks again. Hickdood
  14. Gotchya... Thanks redmonda. Common sense told me to try that. I did.. It didn't work... Having read your response, I've now tried it again and VOILA.. Success. I'm an idiot i guess. Thanks anyway
  15. I have a Line 6 POD HD500x and a Mesa Boogie Mark IV. I play a Gibson Studio, Gibson P90 Midtown and a Fender Tele (see pic). I play in a cover band. What is the BEST way to configure the two pieces of equipment? Sorry for the NUBIE question, I have looked all over the threads here and nothing really answers my questions. Ideally i would like to set up amps and effects accurately to the bands i am covering. This means i would have to set up a patch for each song in my setlist on the POD (which i have no problem doing since i have the time to program EACH song in the setlist) OR simply get a nice generic tone consisting of the following: Clean, Overdriven clean, Rock n Roll type Distortion. Along the lines of Mike Campbell, Pete Thorn, Neil Schon, Kings of Leon etc. I guess i can copy the patch to different presets and add effects pertain to the song as needed. I think this is the easier way but I'm a stickler for accuracy in my playing and in my sound... In other words... I DONT WANT TO BE PLAYING AN 80'S METAL TONE FOR HOTEL CALIFORNIA. Sorry for the essay but if you guys have any ideas drop me a note. If anyone has any patches like the above mentioned can you direct me to them so i can try them out? Thanks Hickdood
  16. How do i delete the second amp if i don't like it?
