  1. Thank you, that is so helpful! I remembered reading about the four-button option, then couldn't find it in the manual later. I've changed my global setting, and now I'm going through the presets rejiggering the assignments. Much easier operation with the bank buttons always activated.
  2. Played my first gig with my new Pod Go. Went great, various sounds were good, and I loved how Snapshots work. But one question: How do you get out of Snapshot mode and change to a different preset? I wound up unplugging it to get back.
  3. Thanks, great news. One for the gig bag, one for practice at home.
  4. I have two for the HD500X. Now I’ve ordered a Pd Go. Can I use the same power supply?
  5. Thanks for the reply. I did not. I'd already ordered the Pod Go before I found this thread. But I'm looking forward to the smaller size and new sounds.
  6. Happened to me repeatedly at two practices. Time to order a Pod Go and retire the 500X. Sad!
  7. Good thread. This is 4 amp, looks like it would work. $16.64 from Amazon, free 2-day shipping with Prime. 9V 3A 4A 5A AC DC Adapter 27W 36W 45W Switching Power Supply (9V4A-USCABLE) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0771LX649/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_tai_oVZTCbWW8VMFB
  8. Thanks, y'all. I'm going to try jvrock84's suggestion, makes sense.
  9. I want the tap tempo to generally stay at 120 beats per minute for all patches. If I stomp the tap tempo button during a song (say, to sync my delay with the beat), I want the rest of the patches to stay at 120 bpm, and I want that patch to revert to 120 bpm when I unplug the Pod and plug it back in. Right now I in the System Settings I have Tempo Sync set to "Global" and the Tempo set to 120 bpm. Are those the correct settings for what I outlined above, trying to keep all patches at 120 bpm every time I turn the unit on?
  10. The Helix has more amp models and probably a lot more DSP, but I'm not sure what makes it 3 times as good as the 500X. There are more outputs, so I guess it's more flexible. I'm happy with the 500X and couldnt afford $1,500 anyway. I have a wife too!
  11. Power supply is $40 from Sweetwater. I bought one just to have a spare. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PODHDPwr
  12. Kind of off the subject, but has anybody ever tried tuning your A to 432 instead of 440? Supposedly music sounds better and makes you feel better with that tuning, something to do with the music of the spheres or something. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/columns/music_theory/432hz_crazy_theory_or_crazy_fact.html I haven't tried it. It's hard enough to get everybody in my band in tune using standard tuning!
  13. LOL! I do that when they say "turn it down." I reach over and fiddle with the volume knob, leave it where it was and resolve to play more delicately, at least for a while. I upgraded from a 500 to a 500X and I can't say I noticed a tonal difference, but it makes me feel good that someone else did.
  14. I play the HD500X through a 15-watt Fender Blues Junior or a 100-watt Twin. I put the Pod before the amp, 4-cable is too much trouble and might induce hum. I keep that master volume about halfway up so I'll have headroom in case I want more volume. It's a lot of work to get the patch volume consistent but it's worth it. Sounds great through my amps and these Pods are good units to gig with. Take the time, you'll be glad you did.
