  1. I'm not making music, I'm configuring an electronic device. I'll start making music after it's properly configured.
  2. Hey guys, I totally understand the patch editing in the HD500X. To change the params of the amp, I use those big knobs on the unit: Drive, Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence, Volume. However, I feel much more comfortable using the 4 small knobs below the screen, the ones we use to edit everything else. The big knobs have 2 problems: 1) the start position of the knob is never the same of the parameter set. So when you move the big knob, you almost never can go back to the original value. 2) They are imprecise, it's hard to choose an specific numeric value. I remember in the old days of the great X3 Live, when editing the amp settings, I had the choice to use the big knobs, or the 4 small knobs below the screen. So I wonder: to edit the amp settings, is there any way to use the 4 small knobs on the HD500X?
  3. Start with the treadplate amp, then put a tubescreamer in front of it.
  4. As a former Boss GT user myself, I say hell yes. The problem with Boss units is that they use the same COSM engine since the early 90's: the new units just have more processing power. And COSM totally sucks at high gain tones. I sold my GT-8 for a POD X3 Live years ago, and the difference was mind blowing.
  5. I bet it's not possible for hardware reasons.
  6. Being an early adopter means you're likely to experience many glitches, since you're dealing with stuff that has not been 100% tested. So, if you like to have everything safely working, just don't upgrade too soon. That's a bit obvious if you stop to think.
  7. Line 6 could have hired a less lazy programmer to build their software... :angry: I think I'll post this on Ideascale. Edit: it's there now: http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/HD500X-editor-keep-blocks-always-ordered/772304-23508
  8. When using the HD500X editor, you can reorder the blocks at the top section, by just dragging them around. However, at the section below, where the effects are detailed, the blocks are not reordered, and you end up with a mess after a while. Here's what I'm talking about: Is there a way to keep everything in order, so the blocks are easier to spot?
  9. So the new footswitches are bad as the old ones?
  10. Bumping this thread... can anyone demonstrate what that's about? Looks interesting.
  11. Boss is using the same COSM algorithms for decades, they only add more processing power to their units. I switched from my GT to the POD because the GT is capable of decent effects and clean amps, but COSM totally sucks at high gain amps. If you aren't into high gain amps, the GT may be for you, otherwise run away.
  12. I also believe it's pretty much this. This is an issue with pretty much all modelers of all manufacturers, as far as I can tell. You must find a way to match your volumes.
  13. I already do this with my X3 Live. The UNBALANCED OUTS can remain at max vol, while the PHONES stay controlled by the MASTER vol. I'm just baffled that the HD500X, which is "so advanced"... can't do this. <_<
