  1. It's not just Line6. A friend started having issues with his Tascam 1604 audio interface. It started randomly locking up about 6 months ago. I told him to see if it was plugged into a USB 3.0 port, which it was. He switched it to a USB 2.0 port and so far it's working great again. My understanding is there were some tricks you could with USB 2.0 and audio streaming that weren't exactly supported. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with supported programming methods only.
  2. https://www.dell.com/community/Laptops-General-Read-Only/Is-it-possible-to-downgrade-USB3-to-USB2-using-a-generic-driver/td-p/3864128 Basically it says to remove the Intel USB 3.0 drivers and run the Microsoft Generic USB2 drivers.
  3. I had this happen a few years ago. For me it was a bad power supply.
  4. You installed every version of POD HD500x Edit ? Did you also install every version version of Line6 Monkey ?

    HD500X updates

    ANALOGY: Is Apple still doing updates for their iPhone 4 ? Well yes but only because if they didn't it would stop working completely. Other than that if you want new features buy the new product.
  6. As a retired computer software engineer, most people do not start doing backups until they go through what you just went through. No matter how many times I warned them. Then they come crying to me to fix it. But after losing important data, they all did backups regularly. I guess it's just human nature. Computer rules: 1) A computer will fail when you need it the most. 2) Reboot and see rule 1.
  7. Any of them in the $500 price range ?
  8. This is why you're supposed to do backups. Line6 edit gives the option to backup either a single preset or an entire bundle of presets.
  9. And what ? You'd buy the 3 amps you need for $39 and Line6 would go out of business ? Also it takes time and money to write the code, setup the infrastructure to deliver it, the people to support it, all so they could make less money ? I have over 1000 channels on my T.V. and maybe use about a dozen. Yeah what you say sounds great in theory but in reality it's difficult to do. It difficult to write code for these specialized processors then the hardware changes underneath you're code, maybe not significantly but enough where it takes time to fix or re-write code. Then bringing forward older amp model code to newer platforms. Plus the time it takes to just actually model the real amp and try to replicate it. I'm thrilled they give us what they do for what little they charge for it.
  10. And maybe blame Apple for not supporting 32bit apps.
  11. It's $449 dollars and it's sound is on par with the Helix or AXE FX. Thank you Line6 for finding a way to make great tone very affordable.
  12. It's $449 bucks. You want the other stuff then buy the Helix . They had to cut features to make it cheap. I think they did a great job.
  13. Try Studio Output. Stack Front applies an EQ to compensate for a going directly into the front of an amp. It's an approximate of what you need but may not be what you need.
  14. 500 and 500X are the same thing. What works for one works for the other.

    2013 HD500X

    Downloaded patches will not sound the same for you. Most of this depends on what speakers and amp you're playing through plus the guitar itself. Play an .MP3 through your computer speakers then play it through a guitar combo amp. It will sound very different.
