  1. You ARE A lollipopING STAR!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH ! RESPECT!!!!!
  2. Brother Thank you very much for you help. The only problem is that i live in UK. :( No seller posts to UK. i ve tried with emails and they deal within USA only . But thanks very much anyway. RESPECT
  3. Hi Guys . I could do with little help. My navigation pot on my HD500X is broken. I have removed the circuit board but i can't unsold the navi pot with my soldering gun and i don't know that type of pot is installed in there . Does anyone know of any repeir service for Line 6 in London ? Or perhaps you know the type of the pot used for navigation pot on the left side of the LCD Screen ? ANY HELP will be appreciated !!!! Respect
  4. It will work but LIMITED CONTROL OVER UNIT!!!!! Very limited i'd say . Therefore stay away and get MK2 . I use to have MK2 with HD100 Valve head . good controller ! RESPECT!
  5. Hi ! Yes Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Red Limited Edition is what i have been using for the last 3 years now and compared to some of my mates Shure ,AKG , or Sennheiser i still haven't upgraded . Sound is very dynamic , very "real" and punchy so if something ain't broken Why fix it ? RESPECT !
  6. What ? Playing music through a Home Cinema System 5.1 ? You are kidding right ? Home cinema system is design to cooperate with 5.1 speaker configuration technology used in video making and movie making to give the watcher more like Cinema effect of wide stereo and surround effect . Hence the name -HOME CINEMA SYSTEM . No matter what you do any music played through Home cinema will sound like lollipop . Your answer is - Active (or passive with extra amp ) near field monitors-speakers for the beast REAL experience to hear the CD in the way they have mixed it in the studio. :) Hope this helps . RESPECT !
  7. Hi ! As answered above Yes you can assign every switch to control different parameters and functions. Also you can assign real time control to the expression pedal so you will have a huge variety of different set ups ! And it took me 3 weeks of lets say 1-2 hrs a day to fly through the menu in the HD500x. As everything else (even a different smartphone!) it's a quick process of learning how the basics work and then it will become just natural . Don't forget to download ADVANCED MANUAL and then you will learn all there is to learn in this unit to get the optimum max out of it ! Link here --- http://line6.com/data/6/0a06434c6fb051e03e8ab63dc/application/pdf/POD%20HD500X%20Advanced%20Guide%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf Hope this helps ! RESPECT !
  8. Yeah i agree also on this one . Doubt they will bring anything else to the market .Helix is the next step up from HD500X and simply there is no need for anything in between. Also a lot of people out there prefers the sound of HD500X over Helix so it's kinda difficult subject to discuss to start with . Yes better components inside and flash look of Helix makes it a desirable device but sound wise HD500X can deliver whatever you need really so ... And for those looking for more and more and more and more i suggest a Roland GR-20 Synth. :) Respect!
  9. Yup all above right. Around 5-8 mins fix . Depending on how good you are with the Phillips screwdriver . :) IF this indeed is a cable not plugged in to the main circuit board then undo all the screws ( leaving two in the middle done up cos they only hold the inside reinforcement bar ) then locate the TAPE style looking wire and reconnect to the main board. Make sure you lick the metal water tap before the job to get rid of the static electricity from your body .STATIC can easily damage the CPU's and other components !!! Try not touching the inside elements as well ! JOB DONE!!! Respect
  10. Stealing ? C MON!!!!!!! A Bit of PRIDE and HONOR guys !!! Respect!
  11. Yes it's all correct . Screen was upgraded to a higher resolution and its also brighter. The HD Pro SHARC ADSP-21369 processor is running at approximately 333mhz, and the X variant supposedly runs at 400mhz, so that’s about a 20% increase in DSP power !!!! You think it's not a lot ? think again! Imagine something already SUPERB and wack a TURBOCHARGER to it and what do you get ? A BEAST !!!!! This 20% gives more freedom and peace of mind running split signal with two amps . I will also mention that i have never ever seen the famous - PROCESSOR POWER LIMIT or whatever they call it - screen in my life ! :) Hope this helps . Respect !
  12. No it's not a stupid question . Guitar will always be a very important and fundamental part of the sound . Try plugging one of the Chinese inventions you can get on Ebay for around $60 -$80 and you will quickly learn that this so called "guitar " its simply impossible to play . :) Noise , humming ,buzzing , flat as a pancake sound , out of tune , fret noise , no sustain , no low end ,noisy pots , pick ups picking up a local radio stations just a disaster ! Now use the same amp and plug in mid range Squier by Fender or any other instrument well made with decent pups and well put electronics together with quality pots and shielding . You will discover a whole new world and probably be even able to turn the volume up a bit !!!!! So all in all YES the guitar also makes a difference :)
  13. I use Audio Technica Studio Monitor Headphones ATH-M50 for the last 3 years . Still puts a smile on my face when playing EZ Drummer with a Bass guitar mix through these and just so gorgeous for guitar !! Distorted sound still remains punchy and clear at low end and clean sound with little delay and compressor sounds like Pink Floyd tone without messing with any effects !! ! They aren't the cheapest ones out there but i can recommend all day long . Ohhhh . and yes be careful when adjusting the volume cos those are very loud ! Too loud really but down the volume a bit and your brain will be in heaven :) RESPECT!
  14. Hi. Firstly there is no" Metal Pack Model Pack "available out there. If you buy "HD Metal Pack " then you will be getting a new models that will install to your HD unit . Amps as follow : Peavey® 5150® (Block logo) Bogner® Shiva Remastered Marshall® JCM800 (Model 2204) Line 6 Insane Line 6 Big Bottom Line 6 Variac'ed Plexi Line 6 Purge Line 6 Aggro Line 6 Smash Line 6 Octone And yes you will be able to edit /tweak /do whatever with those amps in the same manner as you are editing the existing amps in the Edit mode on your PC/Laptop. And the difference between the stock JCM 800 to the Remastered one that comes with the HD Metal Pack is that they actually Remastered the JCM 800 sound and based this on model 2204 . Marshall made few models of JCM 800 like 2203,2204,2205,2210,4210 and 2204 was actually the one that sounded the best so they decided to go for this model as an upgrade. Hope this helps :) RESPECT!
  15. And again some will say ...... Yeah but ya know its the pick ups that will make the change ..... others will say yeah but its the wood that matters the most , others will say well its the thick coat of polly cellulose lacquer that gives me this extra shine ,some say its the cables !!!!some say its the magic ts 808 that came out of space , others will speak about the cabs for weeks , others will talk about the amps for months and some say that good guitarist will play any old lollipop and it will still sound awesome !!! we can talk and argue and yap yap and be stuck here for eternity !!!!!!!!!! LOL And to those all arguing about all those details i have a statement to announce !!! I AM TO REVEAL THE TRUTH OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY SUCCESS TO ALL OF YA OUT THERE FOR FREE !!!!!!!!I HERE ME NOW!!!!! Its ALL down to the breakfast !!!!I Trust me on this !!! If you have a gig to play at 10 PM and you haven't had any food during the day including breakfast then you will sound 100% worst than the dude next to ya who had a full breakfast and few more snack during the day !!!! LOL :) TELL ME I AM WRONG !!!!!!!!!! :) RESPECT!
  16. Hi Brazzy! YEAH I KNOW MAN !!!! Especially when they proudly put BOGNER DESIGN on the tin that makes you think ....yeah this is some serious lollipop head amp ! ! Again it might have been faulty unit that i have purchased so i will newer know i guess. . . But when it worked fine i have to say that it was SHARP AS A RAZOR !!! RESPECT !
  17. Whatever" pianoguyy "said plus you should be happy that when you touch the unit or the strings on your guitar the noise stops !!!! THIS ONLY MEANS that you have a proper earthing on both unit and the guitar :) and noise ? yeah noise will always be there no matter what . even power cables inside the wall will make hell of a difference when you position the unit closer to the wall :) crazy lollipop but its truth ! And by all means i agree that the quickest way to lollipop up your pedal and add some more unwanted noise is using WRONG Power supplier ! RESPECT !!
  18. Yeah Damn Right "pianoguyy" I am totally with you on this one ! Answer to this could be as long as a 100 page magazine but i will keep this very simple ! IF ANYONE WHO OWNS HD500 or 500X can not produce the sound they are looking for then simply the sound you're going for is non existing!!!! Hd 500 and 500X are so advanced and flexible in configuration that i can not see anyone wanting more from the multi fx processor. Sure you can chase the sound of your dreams for 100 years and on but come on !!!!!! Get off it !!!! play the damn thing and if you are in hard rock or metal then Hd 500 and 500x is all you will ever need . or perhaps you are a jazz player then with all due respect i can not say a word about the proper jazz sound cos i don't listen or play jazz music in which case you might be right in saying that HD500 is missing something . . . From unofficial sources i know that this series was designed for hard rock and metal players and believe it or not they have spent most of time modelling the distorted amps with large focus on dynamics and feel of the each individual model. NOW ! Ask yourself one thing ! What type of sound am i looking for ? well if distorted then select distortion ! Clean ? Then go for clean and all there is more to the sound is the way you set up your EQ and dynamics ! Nothing more at all. Its no rocket science ! Yes you get different distortion grid but this is why you have different brands to choose from!! but at the end of the day its really a EQ and dynamics that will make the sound different and better or less good sounding ! Lets wrap this whole thing in one simple conclusion. I have seen some rich boys out there with all the fancy stuff and over a dozen most expensive stomp boxes under the moon sounding like absolute lollipop !!!!!and on the other hand i had a pleasure of watching some dude playing some crazy lollipop lollipop that sounded out of this planet using -----------wait now ------- HD 300 ......... Blew my mind and i though to myself ..... lollipop me if he can get this sound with 300 then i surely can do everything with 500 !!!! Again ...i am new to 500X but after 4 - 5 weeks of playing with this unit i can easily say that it's capable of delivering every possible sound you can possibly ask for . Its just a matter of setting the lollipop up properly :) RESPECT !!!!
  19. THANKS Brazzy :) Really helpful advice! I didn't see it for weeks !!!LOL Well now i can share with you the pics of my beloved EX L6 Set up i use to LOVE and HATE .... LOL I had to resize the pics down to under 2MB a file so quality not as superb but you can still see what i mean! It was a LOUD LOUD LOUD SET but i had to get rid of it ! :( RESPECT ! Shame i didn't know i could register this stuff. If i had registered all my Line 6 stuff from the past i would have had 8-9 registered products but hey! Who knew ! :)
  20. Thanks guys. the only problem is that i use to own L6 Bogner design head MK1 and i had nothing but problems with it. Unfortunately since then i have not much trust for L6 amps........but again it could have been the one i had that was always going wrong and if i have bought different then it would be different story . . . first the volume pot went apelollipop and started jumping from 3 to full without even touching it and i hurt my ears number of times....it was hooked up to the 412 line 6 cab so you can imagine what happens when the amp decides to go to full volume just like that....i had to change the pot.....then of course same thing with the EQ pots....dead zones and crazy noise while moving the post so i ended up fixing the head and flogging it! trouble is that i know others using L6 amps and they couldn't believe when i was telling them all the stuff that was happening to my amp cos they newer had an issue with theirs !!!!!!So i dunno really if i purchased a fixed up faulty head but i just sort of lost my trust to L6 amps....and maybe i should try again with L^ i know but its this gut feeling ..... LOL :) and again recently i had a another yet AVT150 212 and it decided to die on me as well so .....dunno. think i will try Bugera this time and see what happens. . . RESPECT!!!! PS:how do i add a picture to the post ? i was gonna show you guys the Bogner design that i use to have sooooo much bad time with !!!!!!
  21. Hi . I am gonna repeat the answer given to this question in the past by our dear friend Rewolf48 Rewolf48 went --- Nothing - you can't do it. It is a feature request and has been for ages but nothing has appeared from Line 6 about it. Read more here to find out more :) http://line6.com/support/topic/5221-how-to-control-the-looper-volume-with-expression-pedal/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Thanks to Rewolf48 for this :) Hope this helps RESPECT!!
  22. Hi Bruce . Course it can ! This is the beauty of HD500 over the Rack units !!! ---All copied from Advanced guide for HD500 ---LINK here-- http://l6c-acdn.line6.net/data/6/0a06434dfb244f7b7f489af64/application/pdf/POD%20HD500%20Advanced%20Guide%20v2.0%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf FX & Amp Block Footswitch Assignment Each of the FS1 through FS8 footswitches, as well as the Exp Pedal’s “Toe Switch†can be configured to toggle any of the FX or Amp Blocks On/Off. You can reference the current Preset’s FX footswitch assignments by pressing the VIEW button to display the Performance View screen. The assignments for FS1-FS8 will differ depending on your current Setup - FS Mode setting (see “Page 1, Setup:Utilities Options†on page 2•2): FX assignment for FS1-FS8 ABCD assignment for FS5-FS8 Features & Functionality 3•11 Note that when Looper Mode is active, the Performance View displays a set of Looperspecific footswitch functions, as covered in “Looper Footswitch Controls & Performance View†on page 8•1. Assigning an FX or Amp Block to a Footswitch From the Signal Flow View, select the FX or Amp Block that you want assigned to one of your footswitches. As an example, we’ll select the Delay FX Block. Then Press and hold the ENTER button to display the Footswitch Assign screen. ENTER DBL PRESS TO ASSIGN CTL MOVE AMP & FX ON / OFF Select the desired Amp or FX block, then press and hold the ENTER button The Footswitch Assign screen, with a Delay FX Model selected Features & Functionality 3•12 Use Multi-function Knob 1 to select the footswitch to which you want this FX Block assigned - choose FS1 through FS8, the EXP Toe Switch, or None to remove the Block’s assignment. The following behaviors apply: • If a footswitch already has an FX or Amp block assigned: The existing Block remains assigned, and selecting this footswitch additionally assigns your new Block. When referencing the Performance View, you’ll see the footswitch display a “Multi†graphic to indicate this. You can configure 2 or more parameters to the same footswitch to toggle them On/Off simultaneously - or, have one toggle On while another Toggles Off! Indicates multiple Blocks assigned to a footswitch TIP: To reference current footswitch assignments, when in the Footswitch Assign screen, use the Nav. Disc buttons to select each Block, and look at the Knob 1 setting for each at the bottom of the screen. • When a footswitch has no Block assigned: You’ll see the N/A graphic displayed in the Performance View for the respective footswitch. Indicates no Blocks assigned to a footswitch Features Hope this helps !!! And try using the PC Editor for the easiest possible way to configure this VERY POWERFUL UNIT! RESPECT!!
  23. Right ! Thanks a bunch guys all taken into consideration! I have found the circuit board has a little damage like one of the printed conductive "ways or runs" if you like ,actually come off the board and its no longer attached to the circuit board. I have seen this sort of damage before and its normally caused by overheating ,and overheating normally happens when there is a short circuit somewhere along the line . also after a close inspection a have found a melted Return Jack input which probably was causing the short circuit . Now i will have to order a new jack to replace the lollipopped one :) and bridge the path to the nearest safe point and see if i can have my Return loop returned!!! :) Respect !!!
  24. HEY!!! I DID NOT PUT "lollipop all " !!! :) who's messing with my posts lollipop SNAKES!!! LOL RESPECT
  25. Thanks cruisinon2 and Alex.. Well it's a 3 yo combo with new set of valves and works like a charm when plugged into front!!!!! i was actually really happy with the dist/overd it was producing from lead chan. but when i went to RETURN to bypass the pre amp it was just .....................................................................lollipop all........ So . . . . it's in bits now but no luck so far ..... Respect
