  1. I've found a couple threads here on hooking up a guitar synth to HD500 and Tyler Variax, but using the roland hex pickup. Seems redundant, since Variaxes already have individual string pickups. Any ways to leverage a guitar synth utilizing the existing Variax pickups? Some way, maybe through the CAT5 out of the guitar to an adaptor/converter to the pin connector Roland uses, etc.? Any way to bypass using an HD500 or the like? I currently use Variaxes through a Flextone III Plus. I'm looking to use the guitar as a synth for some simple lines where the keyboardist in our group is already using every appendage (lol). Not looking to blend guitar w/ synth or anything like that, just switch back and forth between the two. Hoping for a possible and most direct path of least resisteance. Thanks!
  2. Thanks- much appreciated!
  3. I'm considering assembling a DT25 dream rig. In a nutshell, what are the advantages/disadvantages/differences between using an HD500 and HD500X. I know the "X" comes with more bells and whistles, but are those extras worth it from a dream rig perspective? I completely understand a lot depends on how much flexibility/how many features I may personally want. But like buying a cell phone, I don't want to pay for stuff that sounds impressive that in real world applications, I'll never use. As a point of reference, I primarily work in a touring act that does a tribute to the 60s Brit Invasion and American Classic Rock/Pop. However, I also work with an 80s tribute and sit in on shows that run the gamut from Standards to Metal. I currently have a Flextone III rig with JTVs. At present, I essentially use 6 basic user presets with different effect combinations. Working "globally" like this allows a generalize preset to work across most musical styles. Kind of a one size fits all strategy. Ultimately, I would like to be able to program custom presets for specific songs, and perhaps free up my hands from manual JTV switching between songs. Hoping to get some feedback from others who pondered the choice of HD Pod to get. Thanks!
