  1. Thanks - much appreciated. I verified, but I do have the volume pedal assigned. I'll keep trying.

    HD500X Sync

    Here is my issue -- it might be operator error, or a device problem .. I don't know. Would love some thoughts. System: Win 10, HD500X ... all drivers, firmware, software are up to date. I am using HD500 Edit to design my tones. I have a set list I'm working on. I am starting (mostly) from the metal and vintage packs which I bought recently. I cannot get the output levels to match (or even close) so I have added a volume pedal to each of 4 tones that I am working. (the level issue is another problem, but not the one I'm curious about today.) here is the issue: I sync my tones from the software to the HD500x, which ostensibly writes the files from the software to the device. I step on a footswitch to move from one tone another ... one step -- and NO VOLUME PEDAL. I step a second time, the HD500X says 'syncing' and then voila, the volume pedal appears. I move to another tone using the footswitch ... no volume pedal -- I hit the same switch a second time, 'syncing' the voila, the volume pedal appears. Repeat. Repeat. It is maddening. Then I shut down the HD500X Edit, and now there is no volume pedal on any of the tones I just edited. I assume this is operator error -- but for the life of me, I cannot figure out what is going on here and why the tones wont write from the EDIT software to the device. (I've had this device for a while, and have had a UX8 for many years prior.) Any help would be most welcome. Earl
  3. Is there a way to easily MUTE the 500x? On my old UX8, there was a mute button which i used a lot. Even with the volume pedal off there is speaker hum. I can use HD edit and mute the channels, but that is a bit cumbersome. thx! E.
  4. No - output from the HD is the same to the Monitors as to the Flex no separation. what i'm doing is either running the flex and bypassing it's DSP (getting essentially a cab) or using select modeling from the flex with the HD coming in. Many of the Flex models are unusable this way ---as you say, it can get pretty muddy. But some are adding value (e.g. the cleans work nicely) Not a setup for everyone I suppose -- but this has brought new life to my old Flex for sure.
  5. HD500x Arrived today ... and wow -- what an amazing difference ... and a great way to bring new life to some older gear. here is the setup: HD500x --> UX8 --> Reason HD500x --> Flextone III HD500x --> USB ... running 500x Edit Flextone III --> MIDI to USB using an Uno First -- the setup is incredible ... I am running the HD500x through my monitors, and then simultaneously running through the Flex III. I have both 500x Edit and FlexIII Edit running on my computer, creating a stellar command center -- and allowing for incredible sonic versatility. The Flex never (ever) sounded so good. The low ends on the Flex were always super muddy. Clean channels were OK, but the low end was disappointing. running the flex with the HD500X in front ... wow! ... seriously, the sonic difference is stunning. I can run native HD with the amp in manual, but am finding some fun ways of using the flex with the HD .. for example, using the clean channels with the Flex seem to add nice depth to the HD without compromising the HD sound and feel. The effects on the Flex are solid and I can turn off some HD effects and use those on the flex (while i haven't run into any processing limitations on the HD yet, this certainly offloads some of the processing to the Flex.) what is really fun is to have both the HD running through the monitors and the HD running through the flex at the same time. When dialing up a Flex model, you can create two very different sound that blend together. Really fun. Gonna keep tweaking ... but the new life this brings to both my Flex and the UX8 is fantastic.
  6. Outstanding Advice arislaf and spaceatl! Much appreciated. spaceatl - if you close off the back of the FlexIII let me know --- would love to do the same and follow your lead.
  7. I'm going to purchase the HD500X .. and have been noodling on what i want to run it through. DT25 .. seems great. Also seems like running the 500x through the LT2 is also a nice approach (which I really like.) This issue i have is ... i have a flextone III which has been a nice amp for me over the years -- with some sonic limitations. If i run the HD500 through the Flextone III--- 1. what would be the best setting for the FIII? What would provide the best FRFR? 2. Some of the effects on the FIII are solid (delay, chorus, wah) -- are there any downsides to using the FIII's effects? 3. Are there any downsides to this approach overall? thanks!!! E
  8. Thanks Zap -- much appreciated. I'll give it a shot. Best,
  9. I am ready to upgrade to HD ... considering the PRO or the 500x. However - I have a ux8 that I use as my primary interface, and i love the recording flexibility of PF 2.5. I assume I could run the Pod HD directly into the UX8 and continue to use the UX8 as my interface (but essentially run a dry signal through PF) Do you think this will create any software conflicts (i would still want to use the USB off of the HD500X to get access to the editor)? Will this create any latency problems? thanks!
