    Global Volume Control of HD500X Pedal

    You might want to start with a blank (New Tone) patch and build it up. Nothing will be assigned to the expression unless you added volume pedal or make the assignment yourself. Depending on the patch you are using, it could be that previous owner assigned the channel volume parameter to the pedal. That is an often used approach for a post volume that saves an FX slot. But it's not obvious...you might have to look at each of the Blocks while moving the pedal to figure out what was done on the patch you are tinkering with...

    POD HD500X cuts out in live performance situations

    So if this is actually POT JITTER, there are a couple of things to prevent it...One is the AVR as discussed. The other is park all of the programable pots at zero or max during performance. Jitter refers to the voltage variance going thru the pot...enough of a deviation from the stored value and the pot starts changing the value. pots are not the greatest AD converters and the voltage can dance around a little bit depending on the position, wear, dirt etc...couple in house voltage variations with a drive or channel volume sending bad position data periodically, and it can totally feel like a dropout...recalling the patch is the best recourse...parking the knobs generally alleviates it.

    POD HD500X cuts out in live performance situations

    If you gig a lot, it's great protection to have...I am only guessing that you might be getting a reset...However, it could be almost anything in your signal chain. This is very common for digital signal processors on iffy venue power...If you plug all of your gear into a transformer based AVR (at least 2:1 rating) you can be sure voltage is stable and you will NEVER have a ground loop. One little phenom of a transformer based AVR is ground isolation. 2:1 rating just means if you have 500 watts worth of gear, use an AVR rated at least 1000 watts...Higher rating is always better.

    POD HD500X cuts out in live performance situations

    I use a Tripp Lite AVR (LC1200) to prevent resets. I have seen it happen many many times. An AVR can prevent digital units like the HD from reseting when the voltage drops too low. Simple conditioners don't help with brown conditions. With the advent of class d power amps and LED lighting, this doesn't happen as much as it used too. But there are still some venues around with older gear and crummy power that will reset a POD on every kick drum hit.

    POD HD 500 WINDOWS 10 Driver Problem

    Only thing I can think of would be to insure that you have the bios updated and chipset drivers updated...One thing you could look for in the bios is setting for USB...In some BIOS it is possible to change the version of the USB on the bios...if you have more than one root controller, there could be 2 settings. My old Sony is like that as it was a first generation USB3...so I only have one USB3 port...and my HD will crash after about an hour on that port...rock solid on the USB2 port...also Windows 10 64....Although I have had that exact issue since it had Windows 8...long time...However, I do not have connectivity issues...Only that USB3 port with HD will cause BSOD in about an hour.

    Alternative To Line 6 Link Cable

    I am not sure where I have seen Line 6 touting that the link will only work with their cables. It can work with a standard mic cable, but that is only for fairly short distances. They tell you what kind of cable to get. Line 6 providing a proper cable is a convenience IMO, and one usually pays a premium for that. AES/EBU, L6 Link L6 LINK provides easy digital audio connectivity between Helix and Line 6 StageSource monitors and/or DT-Series amplifiers. Alternatively, digitally connect Helix to your studio equipment via an AES/EBU (110-ohm XLR) cable.

    HD500X to DT25 & Mixer

    Yes sir, I am SHURE. There is no isolation there. Becomes obvious running a dual tone patch to drive a conventional amp (one 1/4 out) and a house direct tone (one XLR out)...A dummy plug will be needed to keep the sum from happening even though only one 1/4 out is needed...If one uses a direct box instead, one would never notice this.

    HD500X to DT25 & Mixer

    Not the way you are thinking. No that will not work...You have to create dual tone patch and pan each instrument you want hard L and R...basically, if you put the piezo on the A chain panned Left, then you can take the Left XLR to the mixer....configure the DT for the right output on chain B....use the DT25 XLR for the mixer...if you must use the 1/4 outs you muse have plugs in both as using only one will cause the HD to sum ALL outputs....XLR, 1/4 and headphone. good luck.

    Possible to reamp direct using USB?

    No one has done that. HD series doesn't support re-amping via USB.

    Volume falls down when ''Sag'' is all the way up

    not surprising at all. Just like with the real thing, too much generally will sound overly compressed and not feel right...turn sag down until it works I suppose.

    pod hd 500x send → mixer

    A really easy way to do that would be to create a dual tone patch, hard panned where chain A is empty with no amp model, chain B is whatever you like. A is dry, B is whatever it is you are doing...you could just use the XLRs...that is if by dry you mean no amp, no fx...

    pod hd desk top flashing screen

    weird. My power supply went bad several months ago...I suppose after close to 9 years of usage I can't really complain. :-)

    sound difference thru combo amp

    Actually there is. If you program a button to enable/disable the AMP block, the amp model is effectively turned off, bypassed or whatever you want to call it. You can then set the bypass Volume to effectively use an alternative preamp....In tandem with the FX Loop block, this is useful in 4CM applications where a pre amp toggle is wanted.

    Treble, Bass, Mid, Presence, Drive

    It does what you are thinking. There is a threshold voltage change that will cause the POD to react to the voltage change in the potentiometer. However, what makes this a little tricky is that the pot voltage is converted into digital amplitude values. sometimes subs under a stage can be enough g-shock to create a voltage jitter in the pot and it will change to it located value...bad pots will start sending all kinds of crazy values. As a matter of course, a lot of long time Line 6 users learned long ago it is generally a best practice to park the knobs at zero or full during performance. Jitter is not as bad as it once was...It is generally worse on the amplifiers where g-shock is more of a factor....good luck.

    Preset suddenly gone POD HD 500

    only thing I can think of is maybe SetlistMaker is sending a bit more over midi than you are wanting it too...
