  1. It used the be the policy that you could authorise up to four devices on one model pack purchase. I don't believe that policy has changed. Give it a go!
  2. If you used a DC supply you may very well have damaged the unit. Did you use it after it had been serviced? A DC supply will power the unit but often results in no sound (I know, I did it once to an old Pod2, luckily it survived). Try the correct AC to AC supply. The various PSU specs are here: You want the PX-2 type. Google Line 6 PX-2 and you should get some for your local area. I get for example. Even with your new PSU it may not work due to the DC supply you used. If that's the case I think it is usually fixable but you have to ask yourself if it's worth the cost vs. buying a known working second-hand unit.
  3. Well if you're using the analogue outputs you can record at whatever you like. With the USB then you need to match the project's sample rate/bit rate to the POD's (or match the POD's to the project's).
  4. I would take the labelling at face value. It's possible that by just using the same type of socket they save a bit on production costs, and the extra pin doesn't get soldered to anything.
  5. This is correct. You must use a decent quality cable - cheap cables often do not transmit SysEx data, which is what you need for the software to see the Pod.
  6. Is it a 'branded' (i.e. a decent quality) cable or a cheap no-name cable? Many cheapo cables don't have the necessary components to actually use MIDI SysEx robustly, even though they will transmit/receive MIDI note data. Try a decent cable. Line 6 used to recommend the M-Audio MIDISport Uno but I'm not sure that model is still available, but an equivalent should do the trick.
  7. Sorry I looked at the link and thought you were buying that one. This is the spec: Q: What are the specs for the Line 6 Power Supplies? DC-1: (Tone Core Pedals, Pocket POD) 9.6V DC, 200mA, Center Pin: (-). The DC-1 has been discontinued and was replaced by the DC-1g. DC-1g: (X2: XDS-Plus/XDR 95, Relay G30/G50/G90 - XD-V70/30, M5 Stompbox Modeler): 9V DC, 500mA, Center Pin: 2.1mm.
  8. I just dug out the manual and I read that by using Match SPDIF it says the POD will slave to any digital gear - so I guess it is acting as a slave. I just seem to remember that when I used my Pro digitally back in the day I could only get it to work as master, slave never worked properly for me, but maybe my memory is playing tricks on me.
  9. Try this: In the PatchMix DSP software find Session Settings>System and set the Internal/External buttons to External. With digital you have a master/slave relationship and I seem to remember that the Pod can only be a master, so the Pod acts as the master digital clock. Therefore the EMU will have to be the slave: hence setting the card to External. I would set the Pod's settings to what you want rather than Match SPDIF. Also make sure to use proper SPDIF cables (75 ohm), not just regular phono jacks.
  10. Those Piledrivers are quite hot output, maybe try backing off the volume knob on your guitar. Also try backing off the drive on the Pod if it's not detrimental to the tone. You'd be surprised how often there is less drive on a recording than you might think (tricks like doubling the recording often make a guitar seem heavier than was actually recorded for example). However, the first thing I would check is the compressor. If it's on try turning it off, or if you want to use it, try backing off the settings a bit. It's possible that it may be reacting to those strings scrapes and exaggerating them.
  11. The way you have it should work for what you want I think, with a bit of fiddling. Just record the clean guitar into the looper on Track 1 and put that clean loop through the HD100 to add effects. Or are you wanting to record the effected sound back into the RC-300? If so you could play back the clean guitar on Track 1, add effects on HD100, take the output of the HD100 and feed it back into the Aux input of the RC-300 and record that effected version to Track 2. To avoid feedback or phasing I think you'd have to assign the outputs so that Track 1 (clean guitar loop) was outputting straight to the Sub output and Track 2 (HD effect recording) assigned to the Main output (which would feed whatever speaker system you're using to monitor with).
  12. Fine here. Perhaps try clearing out your cookies from your browser.
  13. What are you trying to achieve? The Filter Pro (like most effects units) only responds to certain MIDI data, like Program Change, Parameter CCs and Tempo Syncing delays etc. I think you may be trying to do something else but I'm not sure what.
  14. This discussion is about the Bass Pod XT which never had any expansion packs.
  15. That's correct. Also it would be pointless installing the bass expansion as these are the same models that are already in the Bass Pod XT.
  16. Well there's been the HD since the XT/X3 and now the Helix supercedes the HD and Line 6 have been improving the modelling with each iteration with new software and hardware designs, so no, you will not be able to transfer your patches, I'm afraid.
  17. You can try the packs out yourself - they have a 30 day return warranty.
  18. Actually it's a CAT-5 cable. Ethernet is the protocol that happens to use that cable. Line 6's protocol is not Ethernet, but also uses the CAT-5 cable. So just wire for a standard CAT-5. I realise that it's a slightly pedantic point, but it's worth making the distinction so that people don't try and connect Line 6 kit to their computer's Ethernet port just because it uses the same connector.
  19. I don't know what level the Trio+ FX Send works at but I would have thought that was fine (maybe even preferable) to use going into the XT Pro's rear Line Level Input. Why not give it a go?
  20. As BillBee says, putting in front is your best bet. The XT Pro's loop is sadly last in the chain (just before the outputs) and as such means you can only really add a 'global' type of effect here (like a global EQ, reverb, delay or master limiter). A guitar compressor in the loop would mean you would be compressing the whole patch, including any reverbs you may have. Not a great sound I think you'll find. Really the loop wasn't a decent flexible feature until the later models - the XT's is almost useless in my view.
  21. As well as looking at the voltage specs make sure it is AC/AC. Many power supplies may look OK but are actually AC/DC. These will not work with the XT and may damage it.
  22. Incorrect. A new tax derictive from the EU came on 1st January 2015, which has definitely affected small (known as micro) businesses: An article from before the new laws came into operation: A little explanation from a petition: What this means for micro businesses is setting up 75 different tax rates on their website. For people who sell tiny £4 sample files, for instance, it's not worth paying for the tax calculation software versus the money received from selling such tiny sums and some have simply shut up shop as a result.
  23. Thank the EU tax directive that came in a short while back, you now have tax calculated for your country. For us Brits it's 20%. Maybe check this offer:
  24. Well just goes to show. This particular sap enjoyed the RC-50. I only sold it so I could it the RC-300. Guess that makes me a double-sap 😀 Anyway the first thing I tried on the HD and my XT was the Gibtone amp and even without any programming I could here how it felt more dynamic to my playing, hence I don't think you can use the word flat. Maybe you prefer the XT's less dynamic sound and that is fine. I imagine you've been programming theXT for years. How long did you program the HD for? Anyway enjoy what you enjoy but no-one's a sap for it.
