    Let us know how it holds up / or how it is likely to hold up with a loud drummer, please!

    Any testing of the Firehawk 1500 amp to run Pod or Helix?

    Amp sensitivity.

    I dunno. I think the knobs feel and respond the same as before the update. I don't think they've gotten more sensitive (at least, I haven't been informed to be more gentle when turning and tweaking them...) ymmv

    Aux In

    Any of the unwanted "blanket over the sound" side-effects?

    Aux In Experiment With Other Modelers

    When you ran the Pod HD through the Aux input, was the Pod HD set to "Studio Direct?"

    Amplifi - As Monitor For Pod Hd500?

    Anyone try one yet? I have no interest in it being Pod X3 technology, but anyone try one going in to the Aux input from the HD500 headphone out? At $400, the 75watt might be a good solution for jam-along and home use, but with the only stereo input being 1/8" I'm not sure about any loss in quality. I mean, it's a more verstaile rig than a $200 set of studio monitors....

    Getting A Good Sound With A Fender Strat...

    i find going from humbucker to single coil is like going from open highway driving to city driving for amp tweaking. start with some tones from custom tone. that might help.

    Anyone Run Mac Osx Mavericks Yet?

    Have you tried recording in the new GarageBand? GB's new Drummer feature sounds exciting, since I can never get the right feel from loops. But the Line 6 POD HD500 to GarageBand is my lifeline to my current projects...

    Anyone Run Mac Osx Mavericks Yet?

    I don't like upgrading without feedback from other users. I know that Drivers for Mavericks have been available through Monkey, but Line 6 Edit and my PodHD500 MUST work with my Mac :)

    New Firmware Expectations

    One will also be released with a faux fur coat, matching vespa, and white shoes called the HD MOD.

    Amp Choice For Hd500... Not Dt Amps.

    I've run the 4cm method with the Pod and the JC120, but I spent too much time getting the preamp settings to mimic my home-studio settings. Plugging into the FX return (bypassing JC preamp and only using the more than ample power-amp) my sounds sound great in studio direct mode with very little additional tweakign needed (or none at all depending on the room and the amp model I'm running). If I'm far from a wall, I might increase my mids on a patch, maybe some bass, but that's it. Of course, this is my mileage, and what works for my ears.

    Amp Choice For Hd500... Not Dt Amps.

    My JC120 (hd500 studio setting) into the fx return keeps up with drummer and bassist in loud punk band just fine
  13. I wasn't 100% - I'm wondering if anyone has "hacked" the GraphTech Piezo's in the 89f to also work with GrapTech's Ghost MIDI Hexpander system to be able to plug into string synths.
