    It's not complicated, it's just a fused IEC inlet wired to an outlet and an encapsulated power supply for the 9V,

    Something like this


    I've searched but I can't find any pictures of the insides.





    Hey. I'm so intrigued by this and im just wondering if you could follow up on some more details?


    1. Did you build out the circuit like the diagram from the manufacturer? Or did just the use the barebones converter, inline with the IEC's, then connected to 1 or more barrel jacks?

    2. Did you use any line filtering all? Are you getting line noise?

    3. Did you house the converter in a plastic enclosure to mount the IEC connectors?

  2. Could you explain your power supply mod a little more? Did you just cut up an existing 9V power supply and add IEC connectors, jumping the mains to one another?

  3. I'd like to see a one click "delete preset" option in HX Edit. In windows, i'd put it in the right click menu, towards the bottom of the menu list. Have it revert back to a blank "New Preset". I sample a lot of user's presets and need an easier way to delete the ones I don't like instead of having to copy, save, and paste "New Preset".

  4. Have you downloaded and installed the software yet? You need Line 6 Monkey and HDEdit.  Make sure you're using compatible versions of the software on your computer's operating system.




  5. Has anyone successfully been able to use MIDI Receive program changes to change their patches? I've got an HD500x and my lighting program that sends midi commands through a USB Uno; USB to midi adapter. The problem is that it's not changing the patches with Program commands. Am I missing something simple? I've got the MIDI channel set to 1 on the pod and I believe i'm using the FS-5678 setting. I'm able to get the pod to send Midi but not receive. I've read the manual and followed the instructions but it's just not working.

  6. You're right. If the knob is at 9 and your patch is at 3 and you go to change the knob (lower it) your patch will jump up to 9 as you start to turn it down. Just look at your setting on the patch before you start turning knobs. If you're changing things on the fly while playing it's probably best to listen to the level you have then crank the knob all the way left to start, then slowly bring it up to the right until you get the tone you want.

  7. Keep us posted if that power supply does work. I'm getting ready to mount the POD on a pedalboard and that power supply from Amazon would be much easier to conceal underneath.


    I haven't watch Poul Ciok's videos yet but does he just test them while they're simply turned on or does he do any real load testing? I wonder how much current draw would come from full use of all set lists, dual amp patches, and many effects on each patch?



    I did some research on the subject. You can send midi notes from the POD to show buddy to cue up your backing tracks and start and stop them. That probably won't work well with what you're looking to do? If you're using DMXIS, I would use a foot controller plugged into the DMXIS dongle to utilize Next Song/Prev Song and Start/Stop. In your preprogrammed backing tracks you set midi markers throughout the song to send commands to your POD. 


    Program Change commands in ShowBuddy will control the POD's bank #. So for instance let's say in your first song you want to use Pod patch 1A. In ShowBuddy you'd open the first song's backing track and insert a midi Program change = 1. Program change numbers will correspond with your Pod's patch numbers. For instance, Prog1=pod patch 1A, Prog2=pod patch 1B and so on down the line. CC notes control FS1-FS8. The manual specifies which CC note # corresponds to FS1-FS8. You'll add those notes throughout your backing tracks. This will allow you to control patch or effects changes within a song. I really should purchase Showbuddy and do this. Once a song gets started you'll never have to tap dance to control patches/effects/lighting cues or anything. 

  9. In HD Edit, in the upper left part of the screen, you can click on "Send Patch" and that should send your changes to the unit. I still will always hit "Save" on the pod and even switch to a new patch and then go back to the patch I just saved just to double check.
