  1. While I feel sorry for others that have it, I am happy to know it isn't just me. Perhaps this will be fixed in 2.8.
  2. I will open a ticket, but my thought is that they know about it. Rebooting doesn't help, just simply no sound.
  3. Exact thing is happening to my HX Stomp. I am reading about this issue on a few forums with a handful of people, and so far the only solution is to revert to 2.70. I have not seen a cause or actual solution posted anywhere yet.
  4. Same thing here. 2.71 is silent, other firmwares work. Seems like more than an isolated issue. No issues with 2.70.
  5. So, is there a smaller adapter that can be used with the XPS? I use a One Spot with my DL4 and another with my M9. Worked flawlessly for years. It can't be done with the Variax? The Variax Acoustic takes more power than the M series?
  6. I have and use my Acoustic 700 all the time (have an ABC TV show this week using it...). I hate using AA batteries, and I hate hate hate the PS-2 power supply. Is there another power supply I can use (like a OneSpot or equivalent with L6 pigtail) that isn't as big, bulky and unwieldy as the PS-2?I don't mind using the XPS, I just don't like the design of the PS-2. How much power does the XPS and Variax Acoustic 700 require?
  7. The Mission Engineering SP-2 does exactly this, and is discontinued. I found one on Reverb.com but occasionally they are on EBay too. Btw, Mission Engineering won't custom-make one...I asked.
  8. I am looking to buy or build and exp pedal with 2 outputs and a switch where a normal crybaby switch would be. One output could be plugged into pedal 1 of my M9 and the other in Pedal 2. This way I could control, say a wah with pedal 1 and press down and hit the switch and adjust the looper volume (assigned to pedal 2). This would take up less room than 2 pedals. Possible?
  9. The Dunlop volume x has an expression pedal output, and it works perfectly with the M series. The ex-1 gets a bad reputation because it is lightweight plastic...and expensive. It is too light for constant use (it slides around) and should cost less than half of what L6 charges. Buy an expression pedal that will last.

    Is this the end of HD500 development/updates?
  11. Disadvantage: Despite being the top dog effects/amp box from Line 6, there is no way to assign the expression pedal to the looper volume. Strangely, the DL4 and M-series can do this. There is even a parameter for this in the HD500. They just forgot? They don't want to 'open' legacy code? Who knows. This is why the DL$ or M9 are the one I bring to gigs.
  12. I would think several videos would have been launched with the new firmware- it would certainly help sell them to see what could be done with the new amps. Instead we have to rely on user's videos of varying quality, none of which is selling the amp packs to me. I think if they were going to do them, they would have been done by now. Any videos would probably be to sell the Firehawk or Variax standard, both of which will bring more $$ than this update.
  13. Providing downloadable presets either by L6 or the artists (not crowdsourced by us) themselves seems like the easiest thing to do over the life of the device. Most likely both endorsed artists and L6 have a few patches to spare (even if it isn't their absolute best ones) and would provide these free (no new programming! no opening up legacy code!) to satisfy the 'you forgot about us' crowd. For companies I am/have been involved with, I absolutely had to provide demos, written material, patches, etc as part of my artist agreement. I can't believe L6 doesn't require that kind of stuff from its artists.

    manual :(

    My guess is that making that deadline was more important than sqashing any bugs, rolling out X and non-X updates at the same time, sending accurate email notification, posting accurate facebook notification, providing release notes and adding an updated manual. Yeah, users could 'figure this out on their own' but I got caught up in the webpage loop trying to find info about the update (no release notes) and it kept leading me back to the HD home page. They have rolled out updates flawlessly in the past, but this one smacks of a rushing, skeleton crew that has more important things to do than roll this out correctly.
  15. They never came out with additional presets (artist or otherwise) since the beginning, so I doubt they would start now. You'd think that a condition of endorsement that an artist should have to contribute, say, 10 patches. Nope, nothin.
