  1. Hey, I really appreciate your response, thank you!
  2. Yes sir, I have a full PA and amps. I may take Saturday and mess with it.
  3. Ok, I work in IT and I have several USB cables laying around. I'll test those. :)
  4. Yeah, still don't know what I am doing for teh amp situation. Do I want to run it directly into my Marshall SL5 (no FX loop) and disable the amp/mic/cab sims? Or run it directly into the PA?
  5. :) Being the internet and me being relatively a visitor to this forum (been registered a while but don't visit a lot), I want to make sure I am not upsetting anyone. I like it here.
  6. I appreciate your help, and I am sorry I offended you. :)
  7. I did that last night, even printed it off. Where should I look, sir?
  8. Windows 7, homemade Pc. I guess crash was the wrong word to use. Mine loses connection a lot, and then reconnects.
  9. Is there one that is mono? How do I set it to studio direct output?
  10. Hi guys, after an initial problem with updating my stuff, I am now up and going. The HD500X editing software crashes a LOT. Is that normal? Also, how should I set the device up, output wise, if I want to use studio headphones to make patches? How about if I want to run it like a pedal board into an amp with no effects loop? Last night I tried running it our of the balanced XLR output (the right, AND the left, one at a time) and could not get any sound out of it when I plugged it directly in to a channel on my PA. What did I do wrong? Lastly, as a new user, what would be a great exercise to familiarize myself with the system? I am really jazzed!
  11. Hello all. Just took a brand new unit out of the box. I am on a windows 8 laptop. Monkey recognizes the device and allowed me to download and install the drivers. When I try to update the USB firmware, I get a message it does not detect it and reconnect (which I've done several times). When I try to update the flash memory, it tells me there is a problem opening the MIDI ports. I am not using a MIDI connection at all. Please help!
  12. So you're saying go the LT route? For those that have an HD500x and a DT series amp, how close does the HD alone get to sounding like the valves in the DT?
  13. Picking up an Hd500x this weekend. Trying to plan my next step. I REALLY like the idea of the DT series and tube utilization. However, do they play a role if I want a feed going directly to the PA? Or at that point, will I only notice a difference in the amp itself I'll be using to monitor myself? If that is the case, should I go the LT route? OR does the output (in this scenario, does one go go the HD500 to the PA or from the DT series amp?) take into consideration the tubes?
  14. Thank you, sir. My current main amp does not have an FX Loop, sadly. :(
  15. Thanks man, you'll probably think I'm an idiot but everytime I've had a volume pedal, I've managed to accidentally turn it down right before a gig during set up. Then I go to hit that first note 5 minutes before we go on and... silence. Queue panic, remove a year off of my life. :p
  16. How would an enterprising young lad suuch as myself utilize such a beast, sir/ma'am? (not famliar with the I/O on the HD500x yet)
  17. I used to have a Vetta II (wish I didn't sell it), I can't imagine the HD500X is a lot more complicated than that? I always loved the ability to run from the vetta direct to the PA and then just use the amp speakers as my monitor. I understand what you mean about the Dt25. My GF bought me a Slash SL5, 20 watts I think, maybe 25. Anymore, I prefer smaller wattage amps. It isn't like I'm playing collesiums. :)
  18. Thank you! For now I'm using it pretty much like a pedal board, turning off the amp sims I believe. May decide to run it straight into the pa.. How does that sound? What is the popular consensus on which DT to get? I can't imagine I'll need more wattage than the 25 if I'm using a PA anyway, but the 50, which also does 25, is very tempting. Likewise, the lack of weight on the head vs the combo is nice, but then I also have one more thing (a cab) to load in/out at a gig.
  19. Hey all, like the title says, I am ordering a new HD500X after a few things finish up on ebay this weekend. I'm already planning on getting a gig bag for it. What else do I need? A special cable to connect it to my PC? Something to go to the PA, if desired? Eventually I'll get a DT amp (no idea what wattage or head/combo yet, but that's another thread), will I need another type of cable to connect that? My big fear is, I'll get it, open it up, all excited and be like "Oh, well, crap, I need another 3 types of cables to edit this on my PC/play with it in front of my amp." Save me from me! :p
  20. You guys are exactly right, I'd disable/bypass (whatever the hd500x nomenclature is) the amp/speaker models. If it has mic models on it like the vetta, I'd disable those as well. Short term goal: replace my expensive, but cumbersome pedal board. Long term goal: get a DT series and a variax. :)
  21. Hello all! I am considering getting an hd500x. Eventually I'd like to get a DT25 or 50. However, that is a ways away. My current amp (that I really love) is a marshall sl5. It does NOT have a loop on it. I am really just buying the HD for effects for now. Used to have a Vetta II and sold it like an idiot (I should know better, in 23 years I've never sold a piece of gear I didn't eventually regret selling). Will it sound decent when using my current amp?
