  1. You issue may be related to what driver you are using. Got this info from the manual. Default Sample Rate & Bit Depth: Use this option to set the default sample rate & bit depth that (non-ASIO®) applications will use when using POD HD500X as the audio interface. These options are only applicable for when an application utilizes the POD HD500X device via the Windows® DirectSound® driver. They will be non-selectable when in use via the ASIO® driver. Hope this helps. Jd
  2. Welcome. Since you are using the effects send already and are also using the VDI cable, I don't see any other way of connecting your DigiTech pedal. I know this will sound like I'm plugging Line 6, but you might consider upgrading to a Helix as it has multiple effects sends/returns. Then you'd be able to connect your Free-Out pedal. Jd
  3. I've wondered that myself, it's less work for them. But guess we have to live with it. Jd
  4. Agreed. Here is another product you'd think would be out by now. A wireless guitar pack with in ear monitors for those playing the same guitar all the time. Jd
  5. That was my point, the VDI is a set value and the Guitar Z input is changeable so unless we know what the default # of the VDI impedance one can't make a proper comparison of both ways of connecting the guitar. Jd
  6. 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
  7. line6.com/customtone/ then search POD HD 500x for either Boston or Tom Scholz Jd
  8. Frac82, "dual mono" as it would be summed to mono as the DT25 is a mono amp. Jd
  9. 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/.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. You are correct, didn't think about that. Jd
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. You'd have to connect to it via MIDI and use the DTedit to find out what firmware.

  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
