    POD hd500x for bass?

    Thanks. That info is incredibly useful. Something I always appreciated about my Kurzweil K2-series synths-- all parameters in useful, real-world units. I've downloaded the files and will probably need a "cheat booklet" as opposed to just a sheet.

    Yea, that makes sense. They are likely shifting resources to Helix and whatever the next big thing is. I'll keep an eye out for the 20th anniversary specials.

    Pod HD feature/workaround requests

    I'm not in very deep, But I have read the manuals and have tinkered some. Is there a way to create a kind of "crossover" in the pre-A/B block? Perhaps a LPF on the lower wire and an HPF on the upper wire. Any thoughts? Anyone try this? Wondering about bi-amping potential this way. It would be cool if Line6 added a dedicated splitter/crossover in the Pre-A/B position-- in a similar spirit to the included the mixer in the Post-A/B position. It could have two modes: if the prior block is stereo, it would provide settings to route L & R from a stereo block to the A or B path. If the prior block is mono, it could provide a crossover option to send highs to one path and lows to the other. Being able to control the both the A/B pan, and cross-over frequency in realtime. That would be awesome. I would have liked to see more a few more realtime control sources for parameters. For example, have 4 assignable MIDI CC's, 2 LFO generators, and two dynamic envelopes based on any input source (even for side-chaining). This would allow realtime control and automation in a DAW, In the UI, the list of available controls would expand to include: EXP1, EXP2, LFO1, LFO2, ENV1, ENV2, A-MIDI CC, B-MIDI CC B, C-MIDI CC, D-MIDI CC. Then use system settings to configure each of the new controls. In the signal flow screen, there could be some change to show double-wires for stereo fx-- and split to show when L goes to A and R goes to B. It would also be cool if there was some little underline to show how much CPU is being used by which blocks. Sometimes the designers were faithful to the originals avoiding adding controls that were lacking in the originals, and sometimes they added them. I think it would be good if they added a 2nd page to some FX models to add in "modern" alterations where appropriate. I'd also like to see a modern compressor with: threshold, ratio, knee, attack & release times, and make-up gain. Don't interpret this as whining. I'm pretty happy with the HD500 (now that I've repaired the buttons and broken encoder on this used unit).

    POD hd500x for bass?

    Thanks! I've added those to my cheat sheet. I would love to see Eden bass amps & cabs added to their systems. Though they aren't tubes, they still have lovely tone and are very nice to tweak.. I also wish the bass pack was more like $10 or 15. I have a Zoom MS-100BT that has excellent bass amp sims-- also the acoustic guitar sim is very musical and nice sounding. For some reason it is a little noisier in some venues, but has the most excellent ZNR noise reduction, so it's workable. The combination of the MS-100BT in the loop of the HD500 gives me lots of options.

    POD hd500x for bass?

    I see this is an old thread, but I'll post here in case it comes up as a search result. I just got a Pod HD500 for guitar, but I predominantly play bass guitar. Because I have a great bass amp, I'm not really looking for amp/cab models. I'm planning to make a setlist of bass tones that will provide a range of modulation/thickening, dynamics control (for slap), ambience, env filters, and some more heavy synth and octaved tones. There are some settings in the system pages like input impedance, and "focus" that I think will prove to be important when I start to work out the details. I need to make a little cheat-sheet about which of those settings are global and which ones are preset based.
