  1. It may also depend on what settings you have for the Guitar In-Z input impedance. Impedance values from low to high (22k, 32k, 70k, 90k, 136k, 230k, 1M, or 3.5M) on POD 500x. Not sure what the impedance is default for the VDI input, as the Guitar In-Z setting affects the GUITAR IN input only. Jd

    Boston Tone for HD500X

    line6.com/customtone/ then search POD HD 500x for either Boston or Tom Scholz Jd
  3. Frac82, "dual mono" as it would be summed to mono as the DT25 is a mono amp. Jd

    Variax, POD 500xHD, DT25, LT2

    Dave, the Lt2 would be last in the connections using L6 Link. as per 2-18 of the POD HD 500x manual: *Note: It is necessary to always place the StageSource speaker(s) last in the L6 LINK signal chain (e.g. - POD HD500X > DT50 > StageSource L3). For more about using the L6 LINK connection, DT Series amps & StageSource speakers, please see the additional documentation available at http://line6.com/support/manuals/.

    Klotz VDI cable

    I've been using this cable for a while. It feels/acts like a regular guitar cable. Not to expensive either. https://www.amazon.ca/Bose-T1-Digital-Cable-ToneMatch/dp/B000VE8PRK Jd

    Guitar In-z( Variax Even Change Something In The Sound?)

    from the advanced guide page 2-4: • Guitar In-Z (Knob 3) - Select the input impedance of the Guitar input. This feature affects tone and feel because your guitar pickups are being loaded as they would be by an effect pedal or a tube amplifier. Note: The Guitar In-Z setting affects the GUITAR IN input only. Please see the Impedance Rating s table at the end of this section to reference the input impedance of each individual model. I don't mean to hijack your post : The reason I found this post was because I was looking up Variax and Guitar in-Z to clarify what the POD HD 500x Advanced Guide was stating. I understand the in-Z is for the Guitar input on the HD 500x but what I'd like to know is if I use my magnetic pickups on my JTV using the VDI connection, why would this In-Z not effect the mags through the VDI connection? Even changing the input 1 to Variax Mag doesn't make any difference. So if I want to use my magnetic pickups where these impedances can be changed I'd have to connect via the guitar in on the POD, which seems counter intuitive if using the VDI cable. Thoughts anyone? Jd
  7. With the new v2.8 firmware update they've added L6 connectivity and control. I'm still trying to find out to what extent that is without having to go out and get a Helix. Don't want to make the purchase if it's not going to work like it does with the POD HD 500x. Check out the DT amps part of the forum as they have a few post on it there. Jd

    POD HD500x alternative way to acess tuner (switch issue)

    Or put a tuner in the effects loop Jd

    Boston Tone for HD500X

    You are correct, didn't think about that. Jd

    You should repost this in Multi-Effects then Pod XT as you might get better/more specific help Debería volver a publicar esto en Multi-Effects y luego en Pod XT, ya que podría obtener una ayuda mejor / más específica Jd

    Boston Tone for HD500X

    Didn't Tom Scholz use the Rockman that he designed? That's the Boston sound that I remember, would be harder to emulate that in the POD HD500x. Jd
  12. This is a common thing we all run into when trying to match the non pre sounds to the pre amp sounds. It takes a bit of tweaking. When changing from non pre to pre amp you always have to match the drive, bass, mid, treble, presents, volume etc. because they change to a default setting or at least they never seem to match from one to the other. This is annoying. Yes, the tube in the preamp would not be used if you don't choose pre model. The back end, power amp side, does use the tubes. I find it easiest to use the Pod HD Edit software as it makes it easier to see the change in values. There are also some deeper editing you can do like sag etc but I haven't played to much with that. What you might also consider is if you like the way the Pod sounds without preamp, you might want to look at a Full Range, Flat Responce, FRFR, amp instead of a DT. Just a thought. In the end remember if sounds good it is good. Some here just don't bother changing to the pre as what sound they are getting works for them so they don't tweak anything that much. Jd

    flash memory

    You'd have to connect to it via MIDI and use the DTedit to find out what firmware.

    Preset Bpm For Delays?

    If you haven't done this already, make sure on the SETUP view on page 6 of 12 that you have Tempo Sync:3 set to PRESET and NOT GLOBAL. Jd
