  1. Exactly what I assumed when I gave it some thought and it makes sense. s
  2. I did some recording last night and noticed the 1st repeated note is signficantly louder and it was obvious seeing the waveform on the screen I adjusted the recording volume on Cubase to sound a bit more even. This morning I was thinking perhaps the mix setting is too high. Oddly, it wasn't noticeable when I wasn't recording. I tend to agree with that, since you can't change it to ON globally. I guess if you switched to pedalboard mode it'd always be on every time you hit the effect; how many use the POD in pedalboard mode though? s
  3. Was always the case; check your Advanced Guide. s
  4. In a way, yes but I find using Digital Delay; with the mix at 100%; you don't hear the note you strike, only the delayed note; so a happy medium to get the same volume from the note I strike and the volume of the repeat note is setting the mix around 65%. I'm having some success towards what I want; I've learnt a lot on how the delay's work thanks to you guys. I did test out assigning two instances to one footswitch and noticed how much turning trails OFF helped. I have to practice my technique too; I may be able to get away with not having to toggle if I palm mute at the right moment but it does sound cleaner toggling. I can get away with the feedback around 90% and hearing a faint 8th repeat but any higher and the volume just goes crazy. s
  5. Very interesting; So, to turn the delay fully off I'll also have to assign an identical preset with no delay. I'll definitely give that a go. Trails is assigned per preset though, right? s
  6. Basically: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4, change chord and play it on the next beat to continue with 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 of the next chord with a seamless change in between the two chords Close; with a slight decay so it doesn't sound like I'm strumming 8 times. The Joyo comment was in response to NucleusX; just mentioning that I have another effect should I need to experiment further. I've yet to try this song with the Joyo, not sure if it can do it either. I do remember when I first got it that it was giving me a great delay sound with very little tweaking and good features. s
  7. Yep, it's definitely after the amp on the HD500; last item in the chain; I'm currently testing it on monitors not an actual amp. s
  8. Good explanation; I knew it was the ratio of wet/dry effect. It starts to sound "spaceship" before it gets to ring out as far as I want. I'm using the Angel F-ball with no other effects and playing distorted power chord; I think this is the problem, the feedback starts to increase and gets louder. I'm at 600ms and would like to get 8 repeats out of one strum; I also notice when I switch to the next chord there's too much noise and it's not a clean change. I'm thinking of assigning feedback to the exp. pedal; it's going to take some fancy footwork to get this right live and I may have to look for a different way to play it; perhaps strumming every 4 or even 2 repeats. I'll try experimenting with the Joyo and see if that's any better. s
  9. Thanks guys; your comments have helped. I think the HD500 is limited in the delay effects. For what I'm doing I'm finding some of the delays I had ignored are doing the job, though I would prefer it without the L&R speaker swapping on some and not exactly sure what some of the parameters do; ducking, thresh, spread, offset, etc.? I previously favouring Digital but it tends to get out of control when the feedback is high and you leave it repeating a while. I also bought a Joyo D-Seed for when I went on tour last year; much easier to lug and combined with a Metal Zone was a good bare bones option. I was just hoping I could get an effect close to this with the HD500. s
  10. Hi all. I'd like a repeat effect where I strum a power chord once and this chord is copied and repeated with a very slight decay. I've tried the delay effects on the board and they seem to only repeat the chord once, it's weak sounding and decays so rapidly I can't hear the third, fourth, repeats. The delay effects seem more for soloing. I suspect it could be my settings or perhaps I should be tweaking or adding one of the modulation effects; I took a look at some modulation effects and although they do repeat the chord well, they all sound too swooshy, phased, etc. Can the HD500 do a good clean repeating effect for power chords? s
  11. Does it have an inbuilt sound card? Can I plug it straight into a programme like Cubase, etc. like I do with the POD HD500? s
  12. Hurghanico had replied but he deleted his reply. Here was what he had written; FX/amp chain order: Les Paul bridge PU HD in single input approach MXR Dyna Comp (Red Comp) Dual Rectifier (treadplate) with presence at 70% MID FOCUS EQ with HP FREQ and GAIN at 0%, and LP FREQ at 70% or less Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble (analog chorus) Digital Delay with Time at 20ms Chamber reverb He also put up a soundbyte and it sounded really good. s
  13. Thanks, that sounds pretty awesome. There's one tone that I've been curious about recently; if you've been watching Vikings it's right at the end of the intro @ 0.46 https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=gmyCRJkKeKs#t=46 ^ In this version the tone seems to pulsate; I'm almost sure when I watch it on TV it rings out very steadily; they probably fade it out early. s
  14. If you have the time; I'm after this tone: @ 5.25 https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Y0YX1PHIZr8#t=325 and this tone at the end: @ 7.48 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0YX1PHIZr8&feature=player_detailpage#t=469 s
  15. Any luck? I'm after this tone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Y0YX1PHIZr8#t=325 and this tone at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Y0YX1PHIZr8#t=468 s
  16. This has probably been asked many times; I did a search using the terms Guitar Pro and I got many results with either word in it. Can I use the HD500 and go straight into Guitar Pro 5? What is the best way to set this up? s
  17. I use a Gator GK-2110 gig bag, see post #11. http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/lycanthia/389779-lycanthia-endorsements-gear.html s
  18. I don't mind the Electrik, the last time I used my POD with my amp the Electrik was giving me some great tones. s
  19. Subscribed! Feel free to update this thread with more ... or start another one on these blogs, just post the link here if you do. s
  20. For this tone the author sets the amp drive to 0 and uses 5 EQ's. http://line6.com/support/topic/6426-shortest-straw/ s
  21. I can see it being good for clean Bluesy gains and possibly some thrash metal but I suspect the majority of complaints are from those seeking the crunchy Metal/Rock gains in between. s
  22. A friend has one and he does get some great tones, however I tweaked my HD500 selecting the Treadplate with reverb through my Gorilla amp's power amp in and I think I've actually got a better distortion tone. s
  23. Cheers. I'm finding that it sounds 'brighter' and I prefer the tone but at the moment it's going into a Gorilla practice amp; not an amp of any significant reputation but it does the job. Is there a way to achieve this same brightness in 'amp' mode, is it just a matter of increased volume or does it add some EQ to prepare it for the pre-amp? s
  24. I'm sure I've read of others doing this. When you say overload, do you mean detrimental overload that will kill the amp or just clipping? Also, with other effects racks and stomp boxes that are sent to amp input, are they all set to 'guitar levels' I thought they had a bit of additional 'juice'. I use Line going into the 'power amp in' and it sounds more alive. Is this okay to do? s
  25. Let us know how you go. s
