  1. Did you ever get anywhere with this? Just got mine and seems to be acting exactly the same way. Thanks, Steve
  2. Well done guys! :lol:
  3. Hey everyone, Hopefully this isn't frowned upon on the forum (my apologies if it is!). So i got my Helix today :D and sold my Hd 500 and XT Live to the local Music-Go-Round. I tried to explain the whole model packs/registration deal, but they really didn't care :blink: .....long story short, i have the following model packs if anyone is interested: HD - Fully Loaded Bundle Sold XT Live - Collector's Classic and Metal Shop Thinking half price. Thanks, Steve

  5. I wouldn't think that that would hurt anything, and might be a mod that I would look into. As far as the perfect tuning, I often manually drop the low E a whole step in combination with the alternate tunings, with perfect results.
  6. I believe that they still only make direct (I think there was still some cutting and splicing involved) replacement saddles for the older Variax models, not the JTV 69. Not sure if the offer a full bridge replacement, last time I looked it was just hardtails and floyd that were listed
  7. Glad to help! Unless they have changed it, be careful with the Graphtec color code observing the polarity (sliver/white is the signal, blue ground). The Blue and silver wires were a bit translucent and because they are so small (or maybe because I won't admit that I could use some glasses) could get reversed. Use a good light close by, made it much easier to keep things straight.
  8. It wasn't! I can't tell you how many times I paced back and forth checking and rechecking that drill press. Measure 500 times, drill once LOL The warranty was absolutely a concern, but I will say that almost a year later I am still thrilled with it.
  9. I think these were the ones mentioned, listed in the description. https://youtu.be/ZTUEZROLzjQ
  10. Look in your account under "purchase history". You should see it there click on "details".....had the same problem.
  11. Opened Monkey and connected to my JTV....here's what it is: Clicking the 'Update Selection' button will update this selected item. Adds support for Variax Standard Fixes bug where Alt Tuning window within Workbench HD would show scrambled text
  12. Getting the same result on my 500. Just the indicator in the cab model selection area, but not actual values.
  13. Flash Memory Version 2.62.00 Released 4/9/15 Works with: POD HD500 POD HD500 Flash Memory v2.62 RELEASE NOTES POD HD500 v2.62 is a FREE firmware update that includes additional features and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all POD HD500 users perform this update! It is also recommended that you back up your current presets by using POD HD500 Edit to create a preset bundle, allowing you to include installing new presets as part of the update process. The easiest way to perform the update process is by installing the latest version of Line 6 Monkey. Once you've connected your POD HD500 to your computer via USB port (hubs are not supported), Monkey will recognize the unit and take you through the update process. It’s important to update both the USB Firmware (1.04) and Flash Memory (2.62). The Line 6 Monkey application may be downloaded here. What's New? Global EQ — Global EQ is used for compensating for the wide disparity in acoustic environments on tour or when traveling from studio to studio, and is applied to all setlists and presets. Global EQ features three fully parametric bands plus variable low and high cut filters. To access Global EQ: Press and hold the VIEW button to open the Setup Menu. Using the four-way, cursor right until you see the Global EQ screen. Turn Knob 1 to select the desired EQ band (Low Cut, Low, Mid, High, High Cut) and turn Knobs 2, 3, and/or 4 to adjust the selected band. To bypass or enable Global EQ, press ENTER. NOTE—Due to L6 LINK’s flexible routing, Global EQ is not available at this output. Support for optional Model Packs—Firmware 2.62 supports three new Amp/Cab Model Packs: Metal Pack—includes models based on* modern heavy gain amps like the Peavey® 5150® and a remastered JCM800 Vintage Pack—includes models based on* classics like the Vox® AC30 Fawn and the Orange® OR80 Bass Pack—includes models based on* an Ampeg® SVT and a GK Gallien-Kruger 800RB Model Packs can be purchased here. Variax Presets—Firmware 2.62 adds an additional “VARIAX†setlist of 64 presets, optimized for use with Line 6 Variax guitars. Selecting a preset from this setlist may recall a particular guitar model and tuning in a connected Variax. Known Issues Set List Names—If during the update process new presets are optionally loaded to overwrite the previous set, Set List names may not correlate to the new presets appropriately. This is because renaming Set Lists is not a part of the firmware update process. Set List names may be changed in the hardware using a variety of methods: System Reset—Pressing (and holding down) the four-way navigation pad to the left while powering up will perform a Global Settings reset. This action will reset all settings to their factory default and requires a recalibration of the on-board expression pedal. Instructions for pedal calibration can be found here. Due to the pedal recalibration, it is generally recommended to update the Set List names using the manual method described below. Manual—Set Lists may be renamed manually by simply highlighting a Set List name and pressing the SAVE button. Use the four encoders beneath the main display and press SAVE to complete. The presets in firmware v2.62 correlate to the following Set List names, as seen in the main display from left to right, top to bottom: BEST OF HD FX HEAVY SONGS / STYLE BASS/ACO/VOC L6LINK DT VARIAX USER 1 USER 2 FAQ For more information about POD HD500, the POD HD FAQ can be found here.

  14. I can confirm that it works, although I prefer using the touchpad....little easier for fine adjustments
  15. It's Impressive that we are getting anything at this point really IMHO...as a 500 user

    manual :(

    Just throwing this out there. I thought I saw in one of the threads that the internal "official" release date was sometime in April, but that they they were on track for an end of March release...Digital_Igloo maybe. Maybe they just wanted to get the FW out there for us (well not me quite yet, I have a 500 LOL) to use and enjoy, and are still working on the updates to the manual?
  17. Agreed on the music....all had too much bass for my liking lol. But to have a baseline and be able to see what each device either adds, takes away, or leaves untouched is a great idea. Their website had a lot more to offer for comparison
  18. Here is an interesting Co. I came across that does a lot of audio equipment comparisons. The first video describes how they test, and the second is the comparison I used when purchasing my Sennheiser HD6's. Thought it might be helpful especially for online purchases. www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnK1Gq7txYA www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-MxqKMNZaQ
  19. I just got a pair of Sennheiser HD6 Mix headphones. Extremely happy with them.....nice flat response....150 ohms. They were a bit more that what you were looking for ($279),
  20. Nice! Although I haven't had any first hand experience returning, I have heard nothing but good reviews on Sweetwater making things right. They were great to deal with. Enjoy!
  21. I have to admit that I usually don't like the looks of a bigsby.....this just changed my mind. Looks incredible!
