  1. I just ran home at lunch to check this out, the white noise comes out of the speakers even when they are the only things on. Currently they get plugged directly into a wall and since the amount of noise changes depending on the location is whats telling me it's dirty wiring. I'm just still a novice at isolating that stuff and what the best equipment is to eliminate it on a budget.
  2. So this post does not pertain 100% to the POD 500x but more the PA cabs that I use and since many of you are all about the FRFRs I figured I'd ask here. This is my current set up 500x > EQ > Mixer (all on one circuit plugged into a nice octopus surge protector) > Pair of Alto TS110s (plugged into 2 separate outlets from each other and the rest of the gear). The problem I am getting is a lot of white noise coming through the PA cabs. I am pretty certain that it's due to the wiring in the practice room. I get the same noise at home but nowhere near as bad. I am looking at adding a Furman to my rack case for power conditioning which I assume will take care of my issue. Since I am still kind of new to this kind of setup, if I get a power conditioner like that can I run everything into it for power and be good (6 pieces POD, EQ, Mixer, Laptop, 2 PA cabs)? Or should I get one for my rack and separate ones for my PA cabs? Thanks for your suggestions!
  3. I tell you what, after waiting for this thing and seeign the date moved so many times, I am NEVER.. I mean EVER.. going to dangle that piece of yarn infront of my cat anymore, just to yank it away at the last second! I know how it feels now! lol.
  4. Naaa, not discouraged at all. Just dying to get my hands on it and get to playing. Is it odd that I look at my 500x now and think... u piece of crap, git outta heh!
  5. Hey guys, here it is November and I am sure many of us are anxiously awaiting the next drop of these babies. I noticed that SW's arrival estimate message had changed so I contacted my sales engineer. Looks like, according to him, the next shipment is due to arrive on 11/19 now, pushed back from 11/14. Who knows how acurate that info really is since we all saw how wildly the first estimated ship date changed. Anyway, just thought I would update all of you that pre-ordered from SW. The best things come to those who wait right? :lol:
  6. I am still waiting on Sweetwater to tell me they have gotten their new shipment. Supposedly around the 14th. It's KEEEELin me.
  7. Did you uninstall the program before installing the new version? Also, something else you can try is after uninstalling, find the file folder in your program files for it and delete it. This way you know you are getting all fresh new files and nothing can get mixed between versions. I don't know if any of this will work but these are common things to try when updating programs
  8. Looks like a good chunk of the freezing issues have been addressed in this one. That makes me feel a lot better. Now I really can't wait for Sweetwater to get their next shipment in.
  9. Call CS and let them know asap. I think I do remember seeing a few other post about people having issues like this but I can't be for certain. Either way, the only real way to get a bug reported and fixed is to call them directly. Thanks for posting it though! Something to look out for.
  10. I have been collecting these free IR's from here and on TGP. Even though I do not know how good they sound personally since I don't have the Helix yet, would any of you guys be interested in me posting a topic with links to them all? Maybe something we all can just keep growing?
  11. The white silicon grease is what I have found on the underside of a few of my wah pedals.
  12. Yeah, the question that the OP has asked is what I have been trying to gauge as well. There have been enough awesome reviews about this device's ease of use and sound quality that it made me feel like it was a no brainer to upgrade from my 500x. I suppose it is impossible to get any kind of real feel for that number because, unless you're a long time member here, you're probably not going to come here unless you have an issue or just like forums. Kind of the whole, no one leaves reviews unless they are to complain, issue (if any of you have worked retail you know what I mean).
  13. Oh, that's a good question. Mine is going to be in the next round.
  14. According to DI, the effects have been modeled to behave as close to the real thing as possible. So if you want to know how to use an effect, look up how to use the item it was modeled after and you should be good to go.
