  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. You'd have to connect to it via MIDI and use the DTedit to find out what firmware.
  5. Register Gear Jd
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. To Delete, under your post when you have logged in of course, it shows "Quote Edit Options" under Options pull down menu chose Delete.
  15. Line 6 have not done anything in regards to nylon guitar modeling since the Variax acoustic guitar model before the JTV's came out. Not until people bark enough, using the above suggested ideascale link, your not able to IR anything into a JTV unless Line 6 releases something. So your out of luck I'm afraid. People have been asking to swap out current models with other guitars models and we've seen nothing to this point of this happening. There is also nothing you can do with IR's on Helix/POD HD500x that will change the modelling on the JTV in the fashion you're thinking.
  16. Here is what I found in the XT live documentation: 3-2 Press the Soft Button under the word VARIAX and turn the Effect Tweak knob to choose ON or OFF to tell PODXT Live whether you’d like it control the Variax. When control is enabled, PODXT Live can change Variax models as you change PODXT Live channels, as described on page 4•10. pretty sure it change my JTV when I had it connected via the VDI. Jd
  17. Yes, when I first got my JTV I connected to my XT live and all the XT was able to do was change what model of guitar on the JTV. No custom tunings are available on the XT. This is all from memory as I switched to HD500x soon after. Jd
  18. Also after watching some of the videos I see where you might be having the problem. First, you can't store open E to Model like you want to do, the way you may think it works. Model would then store the open E to Spank 1 if that's the tuning you want for Spank 1, if you had it on T-Model 5, it would save it there. It saves the tuning with the model selected. I'm guessing you just want to have an Open E tuning on one of the tuning positions(tuning knob), just choose any other one other than Model and Standard. When you push the Guitar model selector after, it goes to audition mode, you'd have to hold the Guitar selector knob for about 2.5 sec for it to save the new tuning. I hope I made sense in my explanation but if you need more clarification then please post. Jd
  19. There is no place that I know of where we can download custom guitar settings for the JTV's. If others know of such a site, please share. Jd
  20. You'd need this: But do a google search to see if you can find these used or other sites as this price seems a little hight to me. Jd
  21. According to the JTV Pilots Handbook "You can replace all but the MODEL and STANDARD setting on the Alternate Tuning knob with your very own creations." So that's why it won't work for the Model setting. Hope this helps. Jd
  22. M-Audio USB MIDISPORT 1x1 works for me. It's same price, up here in Canada, as the MIDISport UNO elegault2 suggested. Jd
  23. You are correct. I forgot about the B switch that doubles it. Jd
  24. You'd only be able to access 4 amps when not connected to DTedit using the I, II, III, IV switch. What you program in DTedit for these will correlate once you've applied the programming. Hope this helps. Jd
