  1. True True DunedinDragon, that very well could be the case. At that point it's out of my hands. I just want to make sure I just hold up to my responsibility in the band and play the right notes at the right time. Thanks again for the insight and to everyone else.

    Carrying case for M13??

    This might be too late but for the time being I found a case at Harbor Freight. For $20 (and it locks) it's been good. http://www.harborfreight.com/18-in-x-6-in-x-13-in-silver-aluminum-case-69315.html It does the trick. I actually have it upside down (the case). That way when I play I just open it up and it stays up. Having the case open kinda helps seeing the screen and the lights too since it blocks some stage lighting. For only $20 something dollars it's not bad. I've been using it for almost a year now. It literally fits perfectly. When open, I'm still able to plug in the guitar cables and power supply. I might actually make one only so I can accommodate a volume pedal but it's not totally necessary. Plus it would be nice to store the power supply in the case as well, not a deal breaker. I usually have the power supply and guitar cables in my guitar Road Runner Gig Bag ( to limit additional bags). Or if I change up my set up I bring my hardshell guitar case with a separate bag with other guitar cables and extra strings. Plus it comes with foam too so when I'm walking around with the case there's absolutely no movement inside. Hope this helps.
  3. Thanks for all the input. In this situation we had monitors. I typically feel rushed during sound check in general and in this case some of the players that I was playing with had play at different dynamics during sound check. So I got lost in the monitor mix. In this particular situation I had had a pair of earbuds and I had put one ear in and left the other ear to hear the onstage mix from the monitors as well as stage volume. Which worked. I don't always use the X3 Live. Usually it's just the M13 with my Vox Night Train Combo so no need for ear monitors there, which I tend to prefer as well. Overall I was just curious if there would be a loss of signal to the sound board or worse, damage to the unit itself? Thanks again everyone.
  4. Thank you Brazzy. Yeah it seemed to work fine and it might be something that I may do more if needed. Just wasn't sure if there are proper settings for this or if this could somehow send a wrong signal path. Example: canceling out the signal to the soundboard and only sending it to the headphones. Which is something I wouldn't want in a live setting. Thank you
  5. I original posted this under the X3 Live topics but I guess it would also apply to the HD 500... I was curious if there's any issue(s) with using the headphone input as an in ear monitor while playing live? I was playing in a church setting last night and I tried it. I didn't have any issues but just wanted to know if there are settings for this or if there could be issues using the X3 Live like this? The XLR output was taking my signal to the house. I did have a wedge monitor that was basically the singers mix that had mostly vocals and acoustic. To help the tech guy out, and needing more of me in the monitor, I plugged in my headphones. Using earbuds I was able to leave one ear in and the other ear free to pick up the stage volume and the drummer. Seemed to work but was just curious if anyone uses this set up as an option? If this is an options, are there separate volume levels to increase headphone levels without increasing the level to the house? I just put my master volume level around 1-2 o'clock position and that was enough to get what I needed in the ear and the sound man mixed me in with the band on his end. Thanks

    HD500 with M13 in the FX loop, L6Linked to

    I had a question as far as your cable method. I have X3 and just picked up a M13 for a great deal as well. I don't own an amp and usually just use the headphones out of the X3. I've tried a couple of ways of connecting the M13 to the X3 and I'm getting hum. I disconnect and run the X3 and no hum. So I'm curious if there's a proper way to hook these up to each other. One way I've tried is Guitar> input M13> left Mono Output M13> gutiar input X3 live. Getting hum. I've tried the 4 Cable methods as well > Guitar>input M13> M13 FX Send> Input X3> X3 Send> M13 FX Return> M13 Output> FX Return. Either way I'm getting a hum that I'm not getting by just using the X3 with the headphones. So it's not pickups and not a ground issue. At least not with the X3 but I'm using the same power strip. I guess I could switch the power supplies and see fi I'm getting the same hum. Or I don't know if I need to maybe reset the M13 if the previous owner, who was a line 6 tech, set any output settings. Any ideas? Thanks

    X3 Live with M13

    I own a X3 and typically just use it for home use through the computer or headphones, I don't currently own an amp. I do use it for church and tyipcally run it direct or through a Marshall there. I just picked up a M13 and if anyone knows the correct way to hook the M13 up to the X3 Live while still using the headphones for home use? Thanks

    X3 Live with M13

    I have a x3 Live that I typically use for church either by direct output or through a Marshall 30 watt amp for stage volume. I picked up a M13 for a decent deal and looking to add this to my set up. At home I typically just practice and create my sound patches through the X3 Live headphone output. I guess my questions is how can I hook up my X3 Live and the M13 while still using my headphone output for home use. I'd like to take advantage of the looper cababilities with the M13 for practice and jamming at home. I've tried a couple cable simulations as to how you would connect the M13 with and an actual amp, (using the FX loop or in front of the amp), but instead of using an actually amp using the X3 Live as the amp. With one of the methods I'm getting some feed back or humming in the head phones. Just looking for suggestions if anyone using the M13 and X3 Live togther and mostly for at home headphones use. Wasn't sure if I also needed to go into the M13 settings for output options, I just got it and I really haven't messed too much with it. Thanks
