    Helix Rack Mini aka HX Studio

    I use the HX Stomp in my "studio" (on my desk), but have it directly in front of me if i use it, so that I can turn the knobs. Put in a rack it would be to far away for me. But that is just me.

    Helix Native vs Helix Floor?

    I would always prefer hardware vs software. Just plug the guitar in and jam along. And I like knobs and switches, not clicking around with the mouse. But I would get/keep both, Helix and Native, just for editing later on the computer.

    Helix with poweramp and 2x12

    I can only answer from a HD500 perspective. A lot depends on the poweramp, with a tube poweramp I would use the Helix preamps, with a neutral poweramp I would use the full amp models. The 2x12 can only sound like it does, a closed 2x12 will never sound like an open 1x12. How loud do you play? Will the tube poweramp be cranked? I would use the full amp models with a neutral poweramp, no cabinet modelling (because you use a real cabinet), line level from Helix into the poweramp. I was never satisfied with my HD500 through a digital poweramp and a 4x12, and then I bought a used DT50 head :-)
  4. I just wanted to share my happiness with my "old" gear. For recording I prefer the HX Stomp, but live and loud, I do not miss anything playing through an HD500 / DT50 combo. This thing still rocks!

    POD HD 500X Live Setup Tips?

    crossthestyx, if you are still not happy with your tone through the guitar cabinet, maybe get a used DT25 or DT50. They are a perfect match. Sure, you may even consider a regular tube amp, and the DT50 is a heavy beast to lug around, but if you like to have the flexibility of the POD, for me these are the two best solutions: POD with FRFR (and don't get a cheap one) POD with DT25/DT50 I haven't tried a POD through the new Powercabs from Line 6.

    help picking Hd500

    i would not buy the Firehawk. Less good amp models and no MIDI! The POD 500 is a very flexible MIDI Controller

    Anyone using Mooer Radar Speaker Simulator with their HD?

    You could just test the free Wall of Sounds software from Two Notes with your POD and check if the difference in sound is worth the price for an IR Loader. I use a Torpedo C.A.B. with my POD and like it :-)

    Optimum DT25/HD400 setup...do you agree?

    Solution: That's it!. I set input 1 to Guitar and Input 2 to Same and set the mixer pans for channel A & B to center and the POD now sounds much better through the DT25. https://line6.com/support/topic/6524-dt25-with-podhd500x-sounds-better-with-amps-bypassed/

    POD HD with IRs from HX Effects?

    Has anybody tried to use the HX Effects IRs with the POD HD series? I am just thinking about that...

    pod HD500x in front of an amp (no effects loop)

    I used the POD HD500 in front of my amp, for wahwah, compression, chorus, boost.... It is possible, but you have to get the levels right. I used it with these settings: studio direct, all FX in path A, mixer at 0 db, pan in the middle, path B muted, master volume at 100%. It also is a very flexible midi-controller, if your amp can handle midi.

    HD Pro X EXTREME frustration

    I was never really satisfied with my POD HD, since I bought a used DT50. Now it rocks! :-)
  14. POD HD500 or HDPro with DT50. If you play different styles, best solution, and if you buy used also cheap. I would prefer the HD Pro, standing on the DT50, for ergonomical reasons.

    Line 6: seems they're missing a huge marketing segment.

    There is still the POD HD, what is wrong with it? No need for a Helix.
