    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
  5. 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
  9. Are you trying to have a guitar feed going through the POD and also through Helix Native? In parallel or are you trying add more FX to the signal chain that you are using the plugin and POD? A more clear plan would help for us to give our 2 cents. Jd
  10. I've tried a right angled Cat6 cable. You have to make sure you get the correct right angle one as the plastic lock clip can be on different sides. I don't use this anymore as the Cat6 cable doesn't act like a guitar cable in how it falls to the ground so I ended up getting something else. Jd
  11. Line 6 moderators, please pin this topic of Variax users trying to update them via Helix ISN'T supported at this time. I've seen all to many posts here and on multiple Facebook pages of people asking why trying to update their Variax guitars(or Workbench) using a Helix doesn't work. Yes, it was missed in Helix and may come in a future firmware update in which at that time you could then delete the Pinned post. Jd
  12. Again Thanks for the reminder of the saving of the bundle. Knopfler fan also. This guitar makes it easy to change from one artist sound to another if you tweak things enough. Jd
  13. Did you also change out the middle PUP for a Custom Shop Fat 50? And Neck? I only did bridge and middle as the Edge sound, whom I'm trying copy, only uses 2nd position most of the time. I don't seem to find the FS-1 dark, seems sparkly to me comparing it to my Signature Edge Guitar. Might have to play around with the pickup heights to compensate for this. Thanks for the link on the modelled tone. Will be interested to hear the difference with the one I created. I've never posted it cause I was never satisfied with it compared the real thing. Jd
  14. Thanks for the response. But it won't screw up the processor board it will just NOT sound as if it was on a passive guitar setup? Jd
  15. So I guess putting in a DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup that has a DC Resistance: 14.23 Kohm isn't a good idea? What would I have to do so the processor board is happy with a 14.23 k Ohm pickup as I really would like this pickup in my JTV-69s? Jd
