  1. I notice that this happens more frequently with pre-made patches than with patches I build from scratch. When I make my own I put the volume Pedal first in the chain. So here are the fixes (workarounds really) so far: 1) Change bypass volume in amp (even a little), then save / send. 2) Build tones from scratch, put volume pedal first in chain. 3) After you send the tone to the pedal PHYSICALLY reach down and hit the save button on the pedal. It's a pain, but this seems to work well. Why there's a difference between sending the pre-saved tone to the pedal and overwriting the tone itself once it's been sent, well, who knows? Anyway, that's my experience. To be honest, it's made me so gun shy of the dependability of this function that I've added an Ernie Ball MVP volume pedal in guitar to amp chain. I run the pod in the effects loop.
  2. Yes, that's why I shot the video. Being a newby, I don't really understand what you said - but in almost all cases, this problem doesn't exist when I build a patch from scratch. It seems to only happen with patches I download. Most of my personal patches don't use amp modeling because I like the sound of my amp. Anybody else out there experiencing this issue as shown in the video? Any fixes?
  3. I appreciate that the hd500x is not a one-size-fits-all, that's why I like it! My point is that the failure to save the volume Pedal as part of the patch is a software / hardware bug that should be addressed. I've developed several work arounds, but this video clearly shows where the issue exists: Hopefully this will result in a fix - if the pedal works when the patch is in edit mode, and works when transferred to the pod, it should stay when the editor is closed. Any help from those more knowledgeable is always appreciated.
  4. Hey - I've been having problems getting the volume pedal to save with patches when sent to the pedal from the edit software. There has been a large amount of discussion on the forums with solutions such as "reset whole pedal" to change the bypass volume on the amp setting even if you're not using an amp (that works in some cases) - but with SOME patches, if you send the patch to the pedal, it works until you click away to another patch - but when you click back - it stops working. Here's some video that clearly shows the problem: http://youtu.be/kKe94GaAWtc Hopefully, this will result in a solution that works every time! Let me know if you have a fix for this issue - I like to have a volume control with every patch.
  5. Yup well, wasting another valuable afternoon trying to get the volume pedal to save on my Pod HD500x - getting to the end of my rope with this. Here's what happens: Go to the tone downloads and download DreamClean.5xe, open it in Edit - works and volume pedal increases & decreases volume. Transfer patch to pedal, volume pedal works. Close Edit, volume pedal works. Click away to another patch - then back to DreamClean and volume is fixed, pedal doesn't work. Seriously, this shouldn't be this hard. Getting ready to put this thing on eBay because of this one flaw. All I want is a consistent volume pedal with each patch. Sheessh! Any suggestions?
  6. I've been having a hellish time saving a volume pedal with my patches as well. I use the edit software, add a volume pedal to a patch, test it on the pedal (patch live from software) and it works fine. I save the patch as a file and then "send" the patch to the pedal. Works fine - UNTIL close the edit software, click away to another patch then back to the one that WAS working, and the volume pedal is gone. I have wasted hours trying to figure this out, it just shouldn't be this tough. I've tried loading the entire setlist, everything - sometimes they stay, but most of the time they just disappear. SO HERE'S THE FIX: Medbad5150's answer is correct - but you MUST change the volume on the BVP Volume on the amp even if it's turned off or using a generic amp ("amp A" for example), once you move the volume on the amp away from 100%, your patches will save correctly.
