  1. Any ideas? Are there any representatives of LINE6 on this forum? Should expression pedal work in the situation I described or is it a bug in the pedal?
  2. I am using Reason connected through Presonus Firebox. So here is step by step of what I am doing: 1) I have a playback song 2) I have created 4 patches that I use for guitar sound, say 1A-1D 3) On patch 1A I have Exp2 assigned to volume 4) On patch 1B I have Exp2 assigned to whammy 5) without connecting to PC everything works perfect 4) Connected to PC. The song starts playing. The first message I send is : "Change to patch 1A, set Exp2 to 127" - to make sure I am in my 1A patch and volume is max. This works. 5) Second message after a while: "Switch FS1 off, set Exp2 to 100" - this works. 6) Third message: "Switch patch to 1C" - works 7) Message 4: "Switch to patch 1B, set Exp2 to 0" - Switching to patch works, but here is the problem as I want to use Exp2 as a whammy, but both Exp lights are lit and I have no control of a footpedal. I want to control whammy myself, not through DAW. So you also get both exp lit? When does it happen? Does it happen randomly for you or you know exactly when it happens? I guess I am just sending some wrong commands to the device.
  3. Hi, I am controlling the POD HD500 via DAW while there is playback going on. I am successfully managing to switch between presets (although I must say that latency of switching is a bit annoying, but I can work around that by sending messages a bit in advance). I have a part, where I want to play a whammy (pitch shifter) with expression pedal. I assign it to EXP2. However, when I start playback, both EXP1 and EXP2 become lid and I can not control the expression pedal. I can switch the HD500 off and turn it back on and then I can control EXP2 (without playback), but again once I start the PC sending commands I can't seem to control the expression pedal. How can I solve that? Also, what exactly does CC# 59 (the manual says its Exp Toe on/off toggle) do? I cannot figure it out.
  4. Everything is definitely enabled :D Yeah, that's what it looks like - the FS1 LED is kind of rapidly blinking - so probably there is an infinite loop going on. I'll try to fix in the evening. Thanks for the advice. Cheers
  5. Hi, I am trying to control the presets/expression pedals on POD HD 500 from my PC DAW. I just bought a USB to MIDI cable that works perfect with one of my MIDI keyboards. However, when I send a message (maybe a wrong message, but nevertheless) to 51 port of POD HD 500, which is supposed to be FS1, it definitely switches the FS1 on, but then hangs the POD completely so that it is not operational - no buttons work, nothing is responsive. Is that normal? Cheers, Sergey
