  1. For me... I went from using my Vetta II 2x12 combo as a powered speaker setup (via the FX loop)... to using a set of Alto PA speakers. And the Altos were the best choice by far. I don't do the heavy that much, but the Altos do the trick for me.

    So i can just plug the pod into any cabinet? such as this 2 x 12 http://www.bigmusicshop.com.au/evh-5150-iii-2x12-speaker-cab-ivory.html  and not have to have a power amp or anything else?


  2. So the gear i have:

    Hd500x,

    Peavey Vip-2 combo amp (does not have an fx loop, only guitar in)

    Ibanez RGix27feqm.

     

    I play mainly djent/metalcore stuff and ive had great success with the hd500x at home with my combo but im not close to playing live shows and am worried what my options will be. Ive read going straight to PA is a good option and if i have this choice thats what ill do but alot of the venues i may be playing at wont have that option on offer. I have seen some great deals on EVH 5150III 2x12's and can afford to get one of those but ive read that you need a power amp for this or something like that. Im kind of confused and need some advice as to what i can do/ what i need to buy.

     

    Thanks


  3. Please describe your equipment, both input (guitar) and output (amp, speakers, headphones, ...). Also describe the input and output settings on your HD500x preset(s).

     

     

    Can't stress enough about giving details about your equipment and setup.  We have no clue what you have which can be ANYTHING from headphones, computer speakers, guitar amp, FRFR system, PA system and that's just the output side.  Remember we're blind to what you have.

     

     

    What pickups in both positions and which position is your chosen clean setup using.

     

    Hot pickups do not make a particularly pleasing clean tone.

     

    Underwound and single coils make stellar clean tones.

     

    If using actives, you will have to edit the gain structure to match.

     

    Also, you need to realize that downloading from Custom Tone doesn't mean download and play.  It can happen, but that's the exception.  99% of the time, it's a starting point and you have to edit to taste.

    You guys are right sorry should have done that in the first place.

    Setup: ibanez 7 string with emg 707's set to the bridge pickup but sometimes on the neck setting. Plugged into the hd500x which is then plugged into the front of my peavey VIP-2 combo which unfortunately doesn't have an input setup for effects, just the instrument in.


  4. So i bought the hd500x recently and am loving it but when i try to practice a whole song with multiple presets being used it shows syncing on the screen as i swap even when i havent changed any presets! im afraid that when i play live it will do this and will make preset changing impossible. My pod is plugged into hd500x edit is that the problem?? please help thanks

     

     

    Well you wouldn't be connected to HDEdit when playing live and the synching occurs when updating like changing patches (sending data to and fro the HD to the PC).

    Phew. thanks guys
