  1. YES. THATS IT. Thank you so much!!
  2. Hi. Where can I get a replacement setlist knob/pot assembly? I don’t kneed a knob, I need the entire part. I’m a working player with an hd500 and a Variax. I work in several bands and this combination/gear is vital to my gigs. I have a setlist knob that got snapped off. It’s the top left push/scroll switch/knob. The shaft of it got snapped and I can still use the foot switches on the bottom, but I cannot go between setlist a now or use the knob for saving, scrolling, etc. can someone help with this ASAP.
  3. Hi- One of the bands that I'm in needs to trigger a 30 sec audio file. Is it possible to load that into the HD500 and then trigger it?
  4. Looks like adding a second noise gate fixed the hum, or seems to have. I've never had more than 1 in the chain before. Thanks for the help. It seem to be such a fatter sound on both the clean and the dirty. I'm not wild about shelling out $130.00 for the voodoo switch, so I may just lug the amp channel switch with me (grr).
  5. Thanks Guru. Interesting. So I can either have the amp's channel foot switch next to my HD500, or I can spend and add the voodu and have that hooked to the amp. Okay, that keeps my floor more clean if I go that route. I DID try hooking up the 4 cable method. With this, I can get NEARLY what I want. Because of the FX loop parameters, I'm getting a huge hum. If I tweak them, I can ditch the hum, but I lose the sound I want. If I run without the HD500 there at all, I get the sound I want but no effects. It sucks because other than the hum, it would totally work. I just can't find the hum. If I unplug the guitar, no difference. If I unplug the HD500 from the Effects Loop, the hum cleans right up. When I normally go into the front without the 4 cables, I don't have this issue. Clean as a whistle. Going into the Effects loop gives me a ton of hum. Seems like it might be grounding on the HD500, but the plug doesn't have a ground and the ground lift is only on the XLR jacks (?). Confused on how to make this work. I've seen more than a few threads on this and see that people have the same issue. I have yet to see a solution. Darn.
  6. Hi, I use a Fender HR Deville with Strats & Rics. I've used the HD500 for a few years now with my Variax but have never been that happy about the distortion with my standard guitars. Just seems limp and without punch. The Variax I would continue to use with one of my bands, but for my other band I've been screwing around with just using my amp's distortion and just switching channels (clean/dirty/lead). I gotta say that I really like the sound of just an amp running in this way. My problem is, I'd like to be able to use the delays, wahs, volume pedal, etc. (not to mention the tuner!) that the HD500 has but also be able to switch the channels on the amp without the HD500 affecting the sound. Being that my amp doesn't have any, I can't use the HD500 to swap amp channels (right?). The 4Cable thing might work, but one catch is that I use an attenuator on my EFX loop presently because the Devilles are super loud. I'd have to take that out of the mix to do the 4Cable thing and I'd have to have my amp channel switching pedal next to the HD500 (basically adding more stuff... grr). Is that a correct assessment or is there a way that the HD500 can do the switching that I am missing? Thank you!
  7. Okay, so I've tried popping the acoustic sounds over to the FX loop. IT WORKS! I noticed that there was a lotta hiss coming out of the amp when I did this (and the acoustic was out the fx send). I turned the FX loop return down and Voila! It works. Thanks for the help it is VERY much appreciated!
  8. Oh, weird. I woudn't have thought of that at all.
  9. Dang, having a hard time following this. I'll see what I can figure out. Once we start talking FX loop, I get confused. Sorry about that.
  10. YES! That was my situation too. It ALMOST worked but there was some really odd stuff coming through on the channel that was supposed to be off. Bugeja71- I'm really trying to understand what you've done here. Is there ANY chance u could take a few photos? Sorry, I really want to make this work and am not understanding the whole effects loop deal.
  11. Sorry, but I'm not understanding this. Does that mean I'd select the FX loop as the output for only the acoustics? I'm trying to do this same thing. At one time, I thought I'd figured this out by turning the balances to the left and right of the outputs. But it actually didn't work like that. It SEEMS that if you've got 1/4" jacks coming out of your left and right outputs on the HD500, why coulnd't you put, say, the Right to an amp and have your electric sounds go there and then the Left could be your acoustics that you run to the PA?
  12. I have not tried this. I was trying to get that Beatles vibe, so I've been using the Gretsch types of guitars with Vox types of amp models. I'm able to get REALLY close, but there's a 'thinness' there that's maddenning to try and figure out. I have put an "eq pedal" at the beginning of the chain, and that helps, but I want more of that warmness. I suppose I could just try another amp (and I have) but I'm really trying to get it as authentic as possible.
  13. Okay, now another dumb question: I've never understood what the FX loop is. Isn't that part of the AMP?
  14. Can the outpt on the HD500 be split so that if using a Variax, the acoustic patches could be sent out of the HD500 to the PA but for electrics, those could go to a guitar amp? If so, how would you set this up?
