  1. You're right about the XLR out, and I could use that a handful of different ways to get sound externally from the amp. I just really don't like being restricted to the built in IR's when using the XLR though - and I think you can only use one even if you have multiple ext cabs. Would be nice to get multiple ones for a mix. Hopefully they make it so you can put your own IR's in there at some point. Also, I have a 15w IRig amp from IK, and its Class D with a cabinet out and it works fine. Most ext. cabs are 4-8-16ohm. This standard is very easily implemented in a class D amp, and is done quite regularly with amps for automotive, radio, instruments, and more. Yeah, to my ear its a bit bright (actually the highs can be brash on some of the models)...but the speakers are also brand new and yet to be broken in a bit. Its all good. For the money, this is actually a really good little amp, and I'm glad I've got one. I will be nice to just take a guitar, cable, and an amp to jam with some friends. When they expand the FX capacity it will be even better.
  2. I grabbed a Catalyst 200 off of Sweetwater and got it today. The modeling sounds just fine, and so do the FX. Really can't complain about the sound, the tone, or the volume its capable of. But, I do have a few gripes, and its totally my own fault for assuming on a few things. 1. No 1/4" ext cab out. Unless there is something I don't know. 2. The Reverb is only Reverb and cannot be changed to another effect. Would like to be able to use Chorus and Delay together. Kind of makes me feel like they want people to buy a pedal to add to it. I should probably get an Helix FX? The versatility would be nice. 3. Speakers could be a bit better - they are a little aggressive on the highs. 4. I wish the power cable was longer. (Not a big deal) 5. There is no way to get a flat response from either the Aux or the Return if you want to hook something up for a backing track, drum track, etc. This really needs to be corrected, even if only for the Aux. Hopefully an update on the firmware will solve the FX stuff and save me money on a pedal. Also, it should not be too much to ask for L6 to make the users of Catalyst aware if they are ever going to do an update to the firmware that will add some of the features and corrections we are asking for.
  3. I'm pretty disappointed that the Native plugin can't be controlled externally by a foot controller. Personally, I'd find that very useful. I didn't even think to look that up before I bought it - - stupid me. I hope they get it working soon or I might regret buying the plugin, because I honestly didn't 'need' it.
  4. Does anyone know if Line 6 is considering designing a new version of Pod Farm or something like it that will be better or comparable to BIAS FX, Amplitube 4, Revalver 4, etc, or are they just expecting everyone who wants something better to buy a Helix? If there's any info on this, I'd really like to know before I purchase something else.
  5. I did it with my JSX fairly easily....I'm not exactly sure how to do it with this amp.
  6. I have played with it a bit now....and for sure the amp destroys the POD. Hands down, no comparison. Honestly, I just wish there was a way to use the pod for effect in the loop while using it for gate and od in the front. If anyone know of a way to do this without demolishing the natural tone of the amp, that'd be great. If its impossible, I'll just get another g-major or a 3dfx 2000 or something.
  7. I'm confused a bit, I didn't say anything about cable length....unless I'm missing something. Yes, I keep it on the clean channel when using 2cm, which I prefer. I accidently changed the channel though and it was a hug volume and tone difference - so I was curious if anyone was using it this way and what they thought.
  8. Is anyone here using the HD500x with a Mesa Triple Rec? If are you using it? If you use 2cm, what way to you do it? Do you go into the amp return - and if so, what channel do you prefer the amp on in this configuration? Or do you just 2cm into the front of the amp? Do you use 4cm? I just got this amp and was comparing it to the pod - and I guess I have some stuff to learn about the way the amp works with the hd500. If anyone could provide some insight for me....thank you very much.

    Firmware 2.6

    The list of new stuff available is pretty good, I admit. There are a few obvious one that we'd all like to add, but I kinda with the L6 Chunk Chunk was in there.

    Firmware 2.6

    2 days left, right? Or has it changed to 'whenever' they get done with it?
