  1. Anybody use their HD500X with S-Gear or Amplitube? I just started checking out S-Gear, and using the Pod as an audio interface and for added effects. The latency is still a bit high at 12.6ms, and that seems to be the lowest I can get. Just wondering if anyone else has had success with a similar setup. I love the Pod, and just looking for a few ways to expand, add more amp sims, etc. FYI, this is only for home use, no live gigging. Thanks!
  2. New guy here. Any recommendations on budget small-ish speakers for a home setup? My HD500X will be here next week, and I want to run it into some speakers in my home office. I just play at home, not live, so that's what I'm planning to do. The signals going into the speakers will be my guitar from the HD500X, and my computer or iPod. Some options I've checked that look promising are the Mackie CR4 and Edifier R1700BT. Or, there's the passive route with the Polk T15 and a small amp. Any advice? I'd like to just do this once and be done.....for a bit, anyway.
  3. Thanks. That's what I thought might be the issue. Would I have this same problem running an HD500X into powered speakers?
  4. Hi, I'm trying to setup my guitar to run through my desktop monitors. I tried running the amp direct out into the speakers, and it works, but the sound isn't very good. It seems muffled and distorted, even at lower volumes. Is this a known issue, or is there a setting to change? Also, if this isn't a good setup option, what would you recommend to use? I looked at getting an HD500X, then run that into the speakers, skipping the amp all together, but figured I'd try with what I have first. Thanks!
  5. Never mind, I finally got it to work. Had to reboot several times, and it still only works on one of the three USB ports on my laptop. Strange, but I'll take it.
  6. I've tried every USB port on two laptops, both running Win 7. On one, I have two ports that Spider Monkey will recognize both my amp and the FBV, but I get the same error. The third port only recognized the FBV. On my second laptop, Spider Monkey won't recognize any device. The drivers show installed when I plug in the USB cable, so not sure what's going on. Here's the process I'm following: Amp is connected to FBV. Turn off amp. Connect FBV to my computer. After the USB driver installs, turn on the amp. Launch Line6 Monkey. Thanks!
  7. Hi - I'm trying to apply the flash memory update to my Spider IV 75 using Line6 Monkey, but after accepting the license agreement, I keep getting an error saying: "Error opening MIDI ports. (Code 8000900C) MIDI device timed out waiting for a respose." I'm using a PC with Windows 7, and connecting through an FBV Shortboard MKII. This is my first time connecting my amp to a computer. Any help is appreciated.
