  1. I am sure you cannot access those parameters directly. The manual says: "This Appendix covers the MIDI features available for your POD® HD500 device. POD HD500 will respond to incoming MIDI messages for remote access of its assignable Footswitch & Pedal Controllers, and for loading Banks & Presets. POD HD500 also outputs Bank & Program Change messages when navigating Set Lists and Presets. POD HD500 additionally includes the ability to function as MIDI Controller device, with its footswitches and Expression Pedals capable of sending customized MIDI commands."
  2. Hi Jeff, that belongs to the effect you put in the fx loop. As a rule of thumb: If you want to use your own - say wah pedal, pitch shifter, compressor or fuzz, you probably want to put it in the front of the POD's fx chain. If you have fx like delay or reverb, I would put them on the end. With modulation fx like flanger, trem. phaser or vibrato it is a question of taste, but I would put them before fx like eq, delay and reverb.. Finally the good thing is you can do what you want. It is a matter of experimenting, trial, error and taste. Good luck
  3. It is on page 5 of the system setup. Read the manual p.2.8. Bit depth is always 24bit.
  4. A clean twin deluxe is a good starter's choice and there is no such thing as too much reverb. Use the '63 spring reverb. Then add a slapback delay to it: That means the tube echo with a short delay time (60-120ms) and very little feedback.
  5. Yes, they don't use the usual color code order. But that does not matter, as long as they use a one to one layout. And that is what they do. A crossover as I mentioned before won't work with the interface, because it has no one to one order. And while the interface delivers no power to the variax it wouldn't destroy it. I did it accidently and as expected: Nothing happened. But simply don't try it. Maybe I just had good luck. BTW: I would also check the little golden pins in the female connector of the interface and the variax. Probably use some switch cleaner.
  6. Yes, You have to use a normal network CAT5 ethernet cable with RJ45 connector. Take care that all wires are connected. Generally that is the case. The variax digital cable and the box connection cable are simple CAT5e ethernet cables - no mojo in it. Don't use a crossover cable. That won't work.
  7. Did you try another RJ45 cable? Any network cable should work. I remember having some trouble with the dlivered cables.
  8. Sorry, arislaf. I gave you a bad reputation point by accident. Would you please give me one bad too, because I don't know how to fix it and I don't want that the universe implodes? So we keep it in balance. I usually don't give bad reputations but for massive aggressive attacking people personally and you definetely didn't do that. TIA.
  9. How should that work? Every single part, the bodies, the pickups even the pots and caps are represented as mathematical formulas and algorithms. That is called physical modeling. So: From scratch means that you build your own mathematical rules such as for an active pick up. That isn't anything what a consumer can do unless he is a firmware programmer and at the same time an engineer for electronics, mechanics and acoustics. Yes. The only solution would be to hack the code of the firmware.
  10. Hehe, I knew I will get in troble for writing this :-) I just adore Bo Diddley and the Duchesse.
  11. Whaaaaat? You described exactly what makes the 700 disgusting. That fake PRS look that is worse than those undisputable ugly PRS firewood. I am always embarassed for people playing this horrible furniture of the 80s and ninetees (PRS) on stage. They're simply awkward. They do not even look like guitars to me, probably like mutants born from a tête-à -tête between a one legged cello and a bedside lamp. I never understood this and I never will. If - by any law - I would be forced to play these boards only, I would quit playin. And JTVs look like guitars. And its better to imitate a strat or a paula than this painfully designed disaster. BTW: The one, only and ever beauty ist the Gretsch Jupiter Thunderbird. There you see a bold, timeless and cool guitar.
  12. The 700 is an ugly shaped piece of wood. Even the 300, 600 and 500 looked better. The 700 has neither style nor soul. They look like a log of wood for high school posers. I was definetely shocked when they came out - an absolute design failure. The JTVs, while I prefer the 69 for her surf style look, are real guitars with even that: Style and soul.
  13. The missing PDFs are here. hd500 dsp test summary (table).pdf HD500 Effects DSP Usage Estimations (collapsed version 1 page).pdf
  14. I have this Mission Engineering pedal and it is of very good quality. Before I used it I had connected a BOSS EV-5 which worked excellent. So I guess you can use any expression pedal with a max resistance of 10kO. Volume pedals for guitars won't work because they're usually at a high resistance (~1mO).
  15. Depends on the way, you look at it. You can define - as you wrote - four different voicings per channel (pre amplifier and power amp topology) and change the posibilities for your DT completely. But with the channel switch you choose the last selected voicing. And here you can select the different voicings with the voicings switch instantly. This will become the next last saved voicing.
  16. Oh! If you bought the HD for pitch glide only you could have spared a lot of bucks. For the style you mentioned ther is a lot of stuff like weird delays, reverbs and excellent fuzzes on the HD.
  17. The HD pitch glide is an excellent tool for extreme bending in a solo. For polyphonic pitching there is nothing better than an actual Whammy V for your pedal board.
  18. Yayy, johnnyayyy, buuut some are just more interested in caring for their problems, than looking for solutions ;-)
  19. It's supposable or nearly obvious that they cannot do it. If they use a complete new code, then structures, data types, classes and everything like this changed. For the old models they would have to implement a converter in the firmware for the price of loosing processing power.
  20. Strange. It works here. Probably you should try to set the input "guitar" only. Or there is something like an USB conflict. Try to pull the USB cable from your POD.
  21. Why don't you use the usual 1/4" guitar in on your pod like with every other guitar?
  22. 5/5 I use the magnetics for an ebow. You cannot get the interaction with the PU on the models.
  23. Thanks for the kudos. I'm glad somebody helped my advice. Yes, and I will try to balance the string volume like you did. They sound good in your sound bits.
  24. BTW: I changed the tone pot to 470k and the cap to 22n and set the pot to 8.5.
