  1. I don't normally use the laptop in that capacity. On this particular morning I was using it to tweak my new firmare 2.62 bass tones. Which, by the way, I enjoy very much :) These Sennheiser wireless systems, while very expensive, are absolutely the bomb. Not only do they sound GREAT, I can fire up three channels in the downtown corridor of the #21 media market (lots of radio and tv!), and if there's ever a problem, a frequency rescan is only a few clicks away ;)
  2. This photo was taken on a recent Sunday morning, when I was playing bass in the worship band at my church. Show here are my Yamaha fretless and Heartfield bass guitars. More often I'm playing my JTV-59 in my rock cover band, but even after all these years I consider myself a bassist first and foremost. Inside my foam-surround tour rack are my Pod HD Pro; my Sennheiser microphone and guitar receivers; my Sennheiser IEM transmitter; a blank panel for the receiver antennae; and my Furman PL-Pro C. One of my two RCF NX 12-SMA powered wedges sits on top of the rack. On this particular day I was running Pod HD Pro Edit to help me tweak my v2.62 bass patches. What do you guys think?

  3. Didn't. But I *have* exchanged emails with Johannes, and he says that they've changed quite a lot in the preset files. He's working on a solution.
  4. Greetings, Two POD HDs -- one a desktop, the other a Pro -- running v2.62. I've downloaded the latest Pod HD Tone Conversion Utility from Zab's site. I've used it to go from the rack to the bean, and I've had some interesting results. On the receiving end - that is, the bean - all of the amp and cab DEPs are set to defaults, except for one: The Lo-Cut goes to 260Hz. Any ideas why this might have happened? Thanks --
  5. I've just started using Aggro as part of my v2.62 bass dual tone. After a gate and the blue comp, the signal forks to +12 pitch shift and an SVT+810+Dyn7, then back into the mixer. Nice and simple. The other side of the path goes through analog chorus and digital delay, then through the Aggro+Hiway100+U87 with the drive at 60%, low cut at 160Hz, then into the mixer. The footswitch stomp switch brings the Aggro in and out (bypass volume 0%), and thereby the chorus and delay (which are also individually switched). EXP-1 can be used to dial the Aggro drive back to 0 to clean up the FX split. Not that I overthink these things, oh no, not at all :)
  6. I see that Line 6 has updated the store to reflect the "coming soon" status of Firmware 2.6 for the older HD models. I will take them up on the 30-day money-back guarantee if a stable version of the new fw is not available timely for my HD Pro and HD. Then, in all honesty, I'll buy it again anyway once it becomes available for my gear.
  7. Great, so I just bought something I can't use for two weeks. Thing is, your web store said I *could* use it. Not in two weeks, but TODAY. Check the screencap below. Would you mind updating the store to reflect the product compatibility at the time of sale? Thank you.
  8. Just bought firmware 2.6, updated the Monkey to 1.7, got all green checks, and then ran License Manager 1.09. It tells me that A USB Firmware update is required to install licences on this device. Run Line 6 Monkey to perform the required updates. Funny, the Monkey is showing me all green checks (USB Firmware 1.00 among them). This is a Pod HD (bean) at 2.32. Please advise. Thank you.
  9. Could you post the link here, please?
  10. My primary acoustic tone, attached to post #2, is a complex dual-tone preset. You might like to load it up in HD Edit and check it out. To answer your question directly, I didn't use an amp model on the first tone. My "stomp" effect engages the second tone, comprised of the Bomber Uber model plus other toys, and it's mixed way back. Have fun!
  11. I use the JTV-59 v2.x Martin D-28 model for the bulk of my acoustic work. I've attached my HD Pro primary acoustic tone. You might enjoy kicking the "stomp" button with the volume pedal at 100%. I use that setting to back my lead guitarist on solo at the end of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. JTV Acoustic.zip
  12. Ah, but look closely at the Duojet, it's a lefty, and the Model 32 is delightfully ambiguous.
  13. I like that the latest poster includes the JTV-59 3-way plus select switch combinations.
  14. Your daughter must think you're the coolest dad on earth. :)
  15. Hope you don't mind the intrusion, but I just wanted to pipe up and say I couldn't be happier with my RCF NX-12SMA.
  16. Thank you for clarifying. I almost jumped ship to Fractal! ;)
  17. Used Pod HD on the way from an Amazon seller. $250. Maybe a little high, but then again, it's on the way :)
  18. If I buy a used Pod HD bean from Amazon or eBay .... what do I need to watch out for with regards to registration?
  19. Will I have to run the tones through a file conversion utility to move them between the HD and HD Pro?
  20. I really love my HD Pro, but I did the "pro" thing and stuffed it into a road rack along with my other stage gear. The attached pic shows an old Anvil 6-space effects rack; everything now lives in an EWI foam-surround rack replete with Neutrik I/O panel. When I roll up into a gig, I look good. But I don't feel so good going up my basement stairs. I's heavy and cumbersome, and if I nick up the handrail or gypsum board any more my wife is going to toss the whole thing in the rubbish bin LOL. With all that in mind, I'd be fine if my rack lived in the truck between gigs, and I could use something else in my practice room. Ideally that "something else" would be quite similar to my HD Pro. What's the smallest member of the Pod family that will work with my HD Pro tones and FBV Shortboard Mk II?
  21. Registering on a forum to place a vote is a barrier to the process. A small barrier, to be certain, but a barrier nonetheless. Perhaps one way to get a worthwhile vote would be to crank up the tools that made the 705, and do a limited production run. To me 1,000 moved units would be a pretty good indication of market acceptance. I know I'd snap one up.

    Solo Boost

    Great perspective. I agree and will try it. You lost me. The Studio EQ and FX loop both require an available FX block, but the Studio EQ is more resource-intensive than the FX loop (DAC-to-ADC conversion aside). For example, I've been able to drop the FX loop into complex dual-cab tones when it seemed that nothing else would "fit" in terms of available processing power. And ...... isn't the idea to have an FB footswitch assigned, so that you can tap the lead boost on and off as necessary?

    Solo Boost

    Put an FX loop whereever you want it in your tone. Connect the FX loop out to the FX loop in. Set the return +4dB. Assign the FX loop to a switch. Rock on.
