  1. You require a Variax USB interface to connect to the MacBook Pro. It's a specific piece you need from Line 6.
  2. Send him a private message and he'll get back to you.
  3. If your sole purpose is to use the HD 500 to change the patches of your Blue Sky just run the MIDI from the HD500 into the MIDI of the Blue Sky and dont't use the DT50's MIDI. Unless you have something else you are trying to accomplish. I do this with my HD500x and my SDD-3000 pedal.

    HD500X Reboots

    If you haven't tried already, update or re-flash to the latest firmware. This stopped mine from rebooting earlier this year.
  5. Navipe, Here is one of my patches for using the SDD-3000 clone in the FX loop of my HD500x. I changed the extention to ".txt" so the attachment will go through. You'll have to change it to ".h5e" so that you can upload it to your HD500. Let me know if this helps you out or not. Jd Bad U2's The Edge.txt
  6. Navipe, I also have two of the SDD-3000 clone pedals, and just picked up the new Korg SDD-3000 pedal(re-issue of the original rack mount). I have a dream rig setup that I use this with. I'll send you some of my HD500 patches for you to try. Jd
  7. I was under the understanding the DT25 cabinet G12H90 speaker was a custom Celestion flat Eq'd speaker, read this from this post from nickbell a product specialist "Using the PRE-amp models are definatly the way to go with this kind of setup. To answer your question YES the DT's speaker is taken into acount with the HD's modeling to come through as genuine as possible. Its a 12" customer made flat response speaker. With this set up taking the output options into acount makes a huge difference due to the POD HD being designed for more solutions other than live use. Holding down the View button will give you output options. Since your running into a DT, using the second output option "combo stack" will give you the speaker modeling without the mic and air modeling giving you the ideal live set up. Using the simulated out in the back is another option that is modeled after the DT's cab and will only give you that tone." So having Cabs ON the modelling would be expecting custom speaker to get the proper simulated cabinet sound. So using another speaker cabinet isn't wrong, but you would get the desired cabinet simulation with a different speaker connected. Or am I out to lunch on this?
  8. I've been tuned down to Eb also since I got my JTV-69s and other than having to adjust the tremolo springs I have not had a problem. I've been so use to having my guitar a step down over the years I just had to tune this one down even though I could do it with the JTV's virtual capo. My 2 cents.
  9. Update to the latest firmware(v2.1) on my JTV-69s stopped this from happening for me. I thought it was my POD 500x and had it in for service for almost 5 months to then get it back and firmware v2.1 came out soon after it work properly now. If you are not at v2.1 give it a try.
  10. Darn, I'm out of town so guess I'll have to wait to try v2.10. Wonder if the Strat issues are fixed in this update. Jd
  11. FrozenOzone, What kind of JTV are you using? I've got a JTV-69s. The others seems to be using a JTV-59 for their test. Maybe it has to do with the type of JTV? Seems unlikely but hey, stranger things have happened. Jd
  12. Last week I got my POD HD500x back from repairs thinking it was my POD not working. What is happening is when I have my JTV-69s plugged in via the VDI cable and power up the POD, when I make my first patch selection the POD reboots. After that is works fine. So the repair person suggested trying my guitar on another 500x to see if it does the same and that it does, it made that one reboot too. So it's my JTV. I then rolled back the FW from v2.0 back to v1.9 and this problem goes away. I know others have had different issues with v2.0 but I haven't read any post that have v2.0 do this. Guess I'll be staying on v1.9 till a new firmware comes out and see if the updated one fixes this issue for me. Here is link to the video of what it does: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11788446/IMG_1790.MOV Jd
  13. Radatats, My bad. I figured it out. It's a setlist and not a bank for import into the HD500x. These are great. Thanks for putting this out there. Jd
  14. Radatats, I finally got my POD HD500x back from repairs, turns out it my be my JTV guitar causing the issues. Anyways, I was trying to get your patches into my POD. I'm guessing you have a POD HD500 and not 500x as it doesn't want to load the file I downloaded. I even tried changing the extension to try to make it work. Help!!!! Jd
  15. Another thing to keep in mind is you will have to have the 1/4" cable plugged in or the VDI cable to the JTV or nothing will light up.
  16. Peter, "Preset" would save the tuning with each individual patch you create or edit. "Global" is just that, it's tuning is setup so if you change from patch to patch it's the same on all selected. So you'd have to use the Preset to then see/use the 8/10 as you must have it in the Global setting elsewhere. Hope that makes sense. Jd
  17. Radatats, I tried looking this up in Customtone but don't see it at all. Would you be so kind to send it to me in a private message, that would be much appriciated. Jd Thanks!!!
  18. I had the same issue with a few of the cables I've bought, that it didn't feel like a guitar cable. I did finally come across this Bose T1 Tonematch Ethercon Digital Cable for L1 System and it works great. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bose-T1-Tonematch-Ethercon-Digital-Cable-for-L1-System-/111258495296?pt=US_Pro_Audio_Speakers_Monitors&hash=item19e785e940 Jd
  19. Milesargall, Yes you can use the HD500 patches in the HD500x. When you download the patch from CustomTone site, you just need to change the extention on the file from ".h5e" or "l6t" to ".5xe" when using POD HD 500x edit program. Hope this helps. Jd
  20. I use 9's on my JTV69s and also having played for so many years a step down I had to adjust the springs and action.
  21. I've read in an other post elsewhere here about someone moding a MIDI wireless unit to work with the VDI. http://line6.com/support/topic/574-help-with-wireless-variax-please/?hl=%2Bmidi+%2Bwireless Worth a read at least. Jd
  22. The pots, pickups, pickup selector, and tuning wheel are all screwed to the pickguard. Once you pull that off there are wires that feed to the battery compartment and to piezo pickups. Jd
  23. Ponyk, if you haven't figured it out yet the VDI cable will not charge the battery in the Variax.
  24. You should look into the 4 cable method to connect to your tube amp. Here is a example, just don't worry about the second path on it. http://line6.com/support/topic/3529-4-cable-methoddual-pathshelp/?hl=%2Bcable+%2Bmethod Jd
