Thanks for tips folks. I have been trying to figure out building my own tones, but also figured to try some already built since I tend to get lazy rather easily. What Dragon mentioned makes a ton of sense. I agree my best bet is to keep on truckin' with learning the ins and outs of building to my tastes, which is going to include learning how to tweak individual effects. Thanks again.
I've had a HD500x for a few months and really like it. My main issue is with loading custom tones. I've watched several YouTube videos of user's who have created some really nice sounding tones, but as soon as I download them and try them out, they sound nothing like they do on the video. I am running the HD500x directly to a powered PA speaker via XLR cable.
