Use the unit properly then.
Create your own preset, in your own setlist. When you need it, you use it.
It's a hell of a lot faster than hunting down a particular preset from a spreadsheet :rolleyes:
The HD500 comes from the factory with 256 presets across four setlists. Those four setlists contain several repeated patches, meaning that they exist exactly the same across multiple setlists. Those setlists are nothing more than something to demo the capabilities of the unit. Feel free to erase those factory presets, then you have 512 possible patches you can call up at a moment's notice. If the unit is that difficult for you to use, maybe you should not have bought it in the first place. Telling the company to makes the unit that they need to give you a list of the factory settings is just plain silly. If you want it so much, make it yourself.
All the HD series units are designed to be a tone-hunter's heaven. You sit down with the unit for some time prior to using it, you dial in the tone you're looking for, then you call it up when you need it.
The HD500 contains 4 totally blank setlists, each capable of holding 64 individual patches. There's your 256 blank entries. Build what you want in there. Name them what you want and make them easy to find and use on demand.
And frankly, if you've been recording for 30 years and you're heavily involved in creating music, why would you be using a mid-level device rather than 1) the real thing or 2) a more powerful and realistic unit?
