  1. Hi, Recently I updated my system to a beta version of mac osx sierra and because of this I'm unable to use my pod hd bean. Line 6 Monkey is able to determine the device and shows options to update drivers. After updating the drivers there is an automatic restart and line 6 Monkey shows me the same old driver and gives an option to update. Have tried installing the drivers manually from the line 6 website but still the same issue. It is not possible now to downgrade the mac to older OS. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hi I think I may have a faulty ac adapter for my Pod HD Bean. Anybody know where I can get a replacement, or if there is an alternative? I live in Australia by the way, so I need something suited for my region (PAL) Thanks! :)
  3. I'm trying to use midi triggers with my POD HD bean. like at a certain time it'll go to a certain effect. is this available with the bean? i read about gearbox. i need more help...
  4. I'm thinking about getting the Pod HD (bean) and the FBV EXPRESS MkII. I don't really need the full HD500/X floorboard. So, can an FBV EXPRESS MkII control a Pod HD (bean) and another MIDI device over USB via a computer? Long version: I want to have a Behringer DEQ2496 (a fancy programmable digital EQ) connected to the Pod HD via S/PDIF (via Coax/RCA to optical converter or RCA to AES/BEU adapter) and change with the patch changes on the Pod HD. It could help with dialing in some patches. Now, I know the Pod HD (bean) doesn't have MIDI connectors. The FBV EXPRESS MkII manual says that it will send MIDI via USB and (at least with the X3) could be connected through a computer and send MIDI changes between the Pod and the floorboard (over USB). Can it also send changes to the DEQ2496 (via MIDI adapter connected to the computer)? It sounds like you can't connect the floorboard to the Pod via Cat5 and use USB on the floorboard at the same time, so USB all around would be required. The Pod HD isn't sending MIDI over USB, right? So the floorboard (and computer) has to be in the mix to change both devices. Short version: So all 3 devices would be connected through a computer. Hit a pad on the floorboard and have the bean change patch and the DEQ2496 change to the appropriate EQ patch. Anybody tried anything like that? I've done a little MIDI software dev stuff - so if the devices are sending/receiving anything across MIDI (via USB) - I can probably sync them up. It would be nice if it just worked, though. I played with DEQ2496 on an X3 Live years ago and it worked well and helped dial in the sound a bunch. Of course, you didn't need the computer in between. I'd guess it would work with the HD500/X easily, too. Searching on the FBV EXPRESS MkII (on this forum) doesn't instill a lot of confidence that it works well with the Pod HD (bean), though. I'd just like some patch switching, control the looper, and have the expression pedal. Any thoughts? Chris
  5. Hey guys, i'm in serious need of some better sound. I want to get a 4x12 cabinet, i have been looking at something like the Line 6 412VS so i can finally use the stereo capabilities of my POD HD... Just wondering, can i plug it straight into the cabinet and have it work? Or will i need a Stereo Poweramp or something?
  6. Can anyone tell me if the Line 6 PODXT Gig Bag (Heavy Duty Padded Bag) will fit the POD HD Bean ( Black one)? some people say its too small

Authorized Line 6 Service Centers, will need you to provide a copy of the purchase receipt to validate date for warranty processing. Please be sure to have those materials ready, should you need to get your unit serviced under warranty. Q: How do I perform a Factory Reset on the POD HD? A: A factory reset on the POD HD is performed by re-installing the Flash Memory using the Line 6 Monkey utility. Please ensure to connect the POD HD to a PC or Mac computer via USB 2.0 ports. Please ensure to disconnect all unnecessary USB devices and to test all of the computer's USB ports if you encounter connection problems. You can view a video tutorial on how to re-install the flash memory of the POD HD500 here: [Video Tutorial] How to Reset the POD HD by updating or reinstalling the Flash Memory Q: How do I access the global settings screen on the POD HD? A: Press and hold the VIEW button to the left of the LCD screen on the POD HD to enter the SETUP pages of the POD. Press the Left and Right arrow buttons on the 4 Way Nav to access all of the SETUP pages where you can set your inputs, outputs, MIDI settings and more. Q: How do I reset the global settings of the POD HD? A: Press and hold the Left Arrow button on the 4 Way Nav as you power on the POD HD. This reset resets the global settings back to factory defaults and also renames the Set Lists to factory as well. NOTE: This DOES NOT reset the presets of the POD HD. That requires re-installing the flash memory using Line 6 Monkey. (Same as Factory Reset above.) Q: How should I set the OUTPUT MODE on the POD HD? A: The OUTPUT MODE can be set in PAGE 4 of the global settings pages. NOTE: This setting affects ALL of the outputs of the POD HD: 1/4" unbalanced L/R outputs, the headphones output, and the USB record sends 1-2 into your computer. OUTPUT MODES Studio Direct: For connecting “Direct” to a mixing console (PA) or recording device. Also, this is the best setting for using headphones or monitor speakers. Combo and Stack Settings: These 4 options are all designed to optimize your tone for connecting to an external amplifier. The signal includes "Live' Cab Models, with no Mic Model or "AIR" convolution, with a special EQ curve added for each. Combo Front and Stack Front - For connecting the output of the POD HD into the front input of a typical combo amp or amp head + external cab, respectively. When choosing either of these Modes, you will see additional optional for further tone shaping. Combo Power Amp and Stack Power Amp - For connecting the output of the POD HD into the power amp or Effects Return of a combo or head amp. Ensure to set the Master Output of the POD HD to to a high output setting for this output mode. Use this setting to bypass the front preamp of your amplifier to use the POD as the digital preamp being fed directly into the power amp section of the amp. NOTE: If plugging into the effects return of an amp, set any loop level controls to 100% if available. May get lower output in amps with parallel effects loops by design. Sometimes, you may need to insert a dummy 1/4" into the amps input to make this connection work. Q: Which foot controllers are compatible with the POD HD desktop device? A: The FBV Shortboard Mk II will give you access to the most features of the POD HD by providing you the ability to access all of the presets within the Set Lists' of the POD along with giving the ability to toggle all effects on/off, control over the built-in looper, tuner enable/disable, and the ability to program the Expression Pedal(s) to control parameters of the amps and effects on the POD HD. You can use the FBV Express Mk II pedal for changing between presets, tuner, and expression pedal control. With either pedal, to create and edit Foot Switch assignments, select the desired FX or Amp Block within the Signal Flow View, then hold the Enter button. This displays the FS ASSIGN screen. All assignments are saved per Preset. Q: How do I enable the Wah effect with the expression pedal of FBV controllers when connected to the POD HD? A: When you assign a wah effect (or any other effect) to be toggled on/off by the Expression Pedal Toe Switch of the FBV controller, in order to physically enable or disable the effect, you must press down hard on the front toe portion of the expression pedal. You must use a good amount of pressure pressing down on the toe of the expression pedal which makes it difficult to do with your hand. Place the pedal on the floor and press down hard on the toe of the expression pedal with your foot. You should see the green Volume light change to red WAH (or vice versa). Q: How long is the looper on the POD HD? A: At full speed, the looper has 24 seconds total looping time. In 1/2 Speed Mode, the looper has 48 seconds total looping time.

A: The POD HD stores up to 64 presets within each of the 8 Set Lists. Press the PRESETS knob to display the Set Lists screen.

Q: Which external expression pedals can I use as EXP 2 with the FBV Shortboard POD HD? A: We recommend using the Line 6 EX-1 or the Mission Engineering EP1-L6 expression pedals. You can also use any other expression pedal containing a 10k Ohm Potentiometer. Expression pedals allow you to change stompbox controls using your feet so you can adjust the sound while you play. On the fly, you can modify the length of your delay time, dial up the reverb mix, or change the depth of your tremolo, or anything you program the expression pedal to control on the POD HD. Q: How do I assign an effect or amp block to be toggled with a foot switch of an FBV controller? A: In the Signal Flow screen, select the FX or Amp Block which you want assigned to one of your footswitches. Then Press and hold the ENTER button to display the Footswitch Assign screen. The Footswitch Assign page is display is similar to your Signal Flow view. Use Multi-function Knob 1 to select the footswitch to which you want this FX Block assigned. You can also just press the FS switch you would like to assign it to that amp or effect. NOTE: you can assign multiple FX Blocks to a single footswitch or Exp Pedal's "toe switch". You can reference the current Preset’s FX footswitch assignments by pressing the VIEW button to display the Performance View screen. Q: Does the XLR Mic input provide Phantom power for condenser microphones? A: No, the XLR Mic input does not provide Phantom power. You would need to use an external preamp to provide Phantom power to the condenser mic before connecting to the POD HD.
