    Power amp and microphone blocks

    This post mainly comes from a question/idea I had... It seems like the profiling has already been done for the mics and the power amps from the cabs and the amps sections in the helix. If all the profiling has been done already I think it would be really cool to have the power amp sections of the amps and the microphones available as a effects blocks. If they have not already been profiled then I'm sure there are cooler things to be looking into, but if all the data has already been collected it would be super awesome to get these in. I may be wrong but I would imagine that all of the amps power amp sections are already profiled and would just be [amp]-[preamp] of existing blocks. I think It would be really interesting to be able to mix and match different power and pre amps to get different sounds. Also I have found the helix to be really great with recording guitar, bass, and vocals I do not know if the microphones on the cabs were profiled by themselves or if they were profiled as a cab/mic combo. But if the mics were individually profiled It would be really cool to be able to have these available as separate blocks. This could be really awesome for vocals or when using the helix as an interface for recording a live amp.

    Additional Stomp Models

    Just curious to know if additional stomp models from the vast Line6 library will be available. I am using the Tone Port with an iPad and the sound is just fantastic. The sound is comparable to my HD500X. It would be nice to be able to use Mobil Pod as a staging area to create new tones with headphones, and then replicate that tone to the HD. That would require having the same models available on both platforms. I find the interface in Mobil Pod to be more fun than the clunky lcd display of the HD. An iPad interface to the HD would be my next wish list item.. Well done LINE6. I love all your products.

    Helix Editor and improvements

    Just to mix it up, any word on when the editor will be out of beta as well as firmware update with improvements & added FX and Amp models? It's gotten kind of quiet on that front and more chatter about the settings and styles. So I thought I'd see if there is any word from the staff or beta testers. Thanks in advance, Dennis

    What Models were actually profiled?

    I was hoping someone, possibly at line 6, could tell me which specific models/year were used when profiling the amps/pedals/etc. I have been comparing the modeling to the originals that I own and so far most have been incredibly accurate. But, as an example, the rat model could be one of multiple incarnations. And, as an example, with the amps what model of twin did you use? Tweed, black face, silver face, reissue?

    Can footswitches do this?

    (Don't have a Helix yet, this might be obvious if I did...) For an amp with several overdrives in front of it, can some footswitches be set up to turn each drive pedal on, and the the others off? I think I maybe read here that each effect can only be controlled by one footswitch. If that's true, then it's not possible, which would be a shame. Do I have that right? Hopefully not.
  8. Hello, I have had my Pod HD 500x for over 2 years and I am very happy with it. I have learned many things regarding the wonderful world of tech knowledge and effects. I have always been more of a player than a gear head. So my understanding of certain effects and specs is very limited. I run my Pod through my Soldano Lucky 13 Tube Amp and it sounds great on many of my tones. I am happy with my Blues Overdrive tones and clean tones. I even have a decent classic rock AC/DC sounding patch I created using a Plexi Lead Bright Amp. My downfall in tone creation is my limited understanding of Compressors, Noisegates, EQ, and things like that. My goal is to try to create a tight sounding Metal tone. I am looking for a Lamb Of God kind of sound (obviously I don't expect to play or sound like Mark or Willy from Lamb Of God) however, that is my desired style of tone. I have a pretty plain patch created where the only thing in the chain is the Treadplate amp with a good amount of drive and basic configurations of the amp knobs. It sounds good but it's lacking good sustain and it's not very clear when I play leads. It sounds muddy and I know I can change it but I am not sure where to start. I gave up on noisegates because it clips my leads when I try to sustain. I'd rather just deal with the amp buzz than sacrifice tone. My real question is about compressors. There's the blue comp, Red comp, Vetta Juice... I have zero clue what these do and how to use them but obviously they are useful because I see many people have them in their effects chains. What do each of them do? And where do I start? I know I am a total tech dummy but I figure the only way to learn is to ask people who do know and experiment with it. I noticed there is different types of EQ's I can use too. Why is that? I normally use Global EQ but my understanding of that is limited. Also where do I put these effects in my chain? Before or after the amp? Do add extra distortion to an already overdriven amp? I've seen people add overdrives to amp models that are already overdriven. It just sounds awful when I do it. But I assume there is a good way to do it. This piece of equipment is very deep in details and I do love it however, I find myself confused a lot. I figure I can also improve some of my current tones if I learn more about EQ and compressors. One of my biggest complaints with my Marshall tone is that there is hardly any sustain of my bends. The tone just goes flat. I am using a Gibson Les Paul and Gibson SG by the way. Thanks in advance for answers. I realize there is alot to answer in my post.

    Pod HD500X - new effects models?

    In researching the Helix, I noticed that it includes new effects models that are not included on other units; specifically the ones that I spotted were the Klon Centaur and Fulltone OCD models. This is probably a stupid question, but will these models become available in a firmware update for HD500x?

    Firehawk Effects Blocks Basics

    Firehawk Effects Blocks Basics In the Firehawk Remote editor, there are 12 effects blocks that you can turn on and off, and assign different models and parameters to. Some of them can be dragged to different locations, some can't. Of these twelve blocks, only five of them can be assigned as: · Drives and Dynamics · Mods · Delays · Filters, Synths and Pitch A quick way to tell which three can be assigned these effects types is that they have a border around them: Notice Stomp, Synth and Mod all are bordered. However, Reverb is selected, so its border is brighter. Here's how to change the effect type of those three blocks: 1. Select one of the three blocks by touching it. In this example, we'll select Stomp. 2. The effect will then show the effect type (in this case, "stomp"), the effect name ("Facial Fuzz"), and a power button to the right to turn the effect on or off. Touch the effect type to change it. 3. You'll then see a "Type" button. Touch it. 4. The block types then appear. Choose one. 5. The block has been changed. There is no restriction on the number of similar effect types or effects assigned to these three blocks. Three stomps, each with a Fuzz Pi on it? Go for it! Just don't forget to save your tone (cloud icon, then disc icon).

    Helix Needs a Computer Based Editor

    I get the whole tweak with my feet thing and the onboard editor is nice but a mouse and keyboard based editor along the lines of POD HD500X Edit is still the easiest method. Especially with the complexity and cleverness of Helix. Also how soon until additional delays are available (reverse, auto volume etc.) or is Helix to be thought of a component/controller in a big rack system.

    Swapping FS1-4 for FS5-8 for Live

    Hello, Typically FS1-4 are used to change effects within a preset. And FS5-8 are used to change overall presets. So, if I want to play clean during a verse and stomp on Distortion during the chorus, I'd assign Dist to FS1. Then I'd toggle that during a song. But, it can be tricky in the heat of things to hit FS1 mid song without accidentally hitting FS5 or FS6 and triggering a completely different preset (I'm pretty nimble, but sometimes my size 12 checkered Vans just don't want to listen to me). It would be much easier to swap those settings, so now I can just hit FS5 to go into Distortion. And then at the end of the song, I can delicately reach up and hit FS1-4 to go to the preset for the next song. In theory I could build two presets (one with Dist and one without and swap between those in a setlist, but of course swapping between presets has a bit of a pause, and that won't work. I'm in a cover band and therefore have a lot of specific presets for our songs. I am currently using at least 8 full banks for a normal gig. Otherwise I think I could use the other footswitch mode that basically gives me 8 effects. The other possibility I thought about was an external pedal that might let me just trigger one effect per preset (or group a few together). I know I can get an external Expression pedal, but haven't seen anything that's just a single button that seems to work. An example song is "In A Big Country". When we get to the screaming bagpipe parts I want to kick on the 3 Pitch Glides I have to get that Stuart Adamson sound (one octave up, one octave down, one on 5ths, all at 30% mix). All advice is welcomed!
  14. The clean channel has phase and flange constantly on,i have tried resetting it but failed.. anyone got any ideas..spider 11..30w.
  15. Hello! I just got my Spider IV 75w a couple days ago and I'm trying to figure out how to set up a dotted 8th note delay (if this is even possible). I'm transitioning into playing lead guitar for my church and the delay is a common effect in worship songs. I'm really new to electric guitar, sorry if I sound really ignorant! Doshiegg

    HD500x for bass effects

    Okay guys, I know other threads have been started about this, but I haven't gotten any answers from those, so here's the deal. I'm using a Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine head, and two SWR Goliath II cabinets, with a Yamaha RBX6JM bass. I wanted to use the POD HD500X for effects only. It appears the only way to connect it to the amp is with this "4 cable method," which I have tried. Problem is, all of the knobs on my amp become useless when I do this, like it's just a power amp. Can someone just tell me everything I have to do to get it like this: -complete control of amp head, with Mesa M9 tone -good sounding effects from the POD -plenty loud enough, and I can use the amp head volume Basically, use the 500x just exclusively for effects, leaving volume and tone without effects to my amp head. Can I do this with an HD500x? If not, what piece of equipment would do this? Basically I just want to have the closest thing to a pedal board without actually getting several different pedals and putting them on the board. Thanks in advance
  17. Hi, I am going to be purchasing a new microphone set up for YouTube and Streaming (AT2035 microphone with a Pod Studio UX2). I am just wondering whether the effects I will use on POD Farm (Noise Gate, Compression, ect) will come through on programs like Skype, OBS, Audacity and DxTory. I understand that quite a few YouTubers use this same setup (AT2035 and UX2) and that all their effects come through fine on programs like these but I just want to make sure that I do not have to purchase anything else to make these effects come through on these programs. I would appreciate any help I can get in the comments :) Thanks for your time, Michael

    Looper effect on POD hd 500

    Hello to all, I have searched the forums and had no luck so I'll post here for any feed back. First off let me say that this pod is awesome but only 1 complaint is that the looper effect doesn't work consistantly (seems to have a mind of it's own) when it works, it work well but when it doesn't ......GRRRR! so I was wondering if anyone else has had or is having this issue, or is there some thing that I'm missing or is it a faulty unit. Appreciated any feedback or wisdom that might help me out. Thanks in advance SJ

    Firehawk Backup

    As far as I can tell so far, there is no way to backup the entire contents of the Firehawk? I have not connected it yet to PC but I think that is just for recording purposes. Has anyone checked this out? Also I did not realize when I bought my Firehawk, that you can write or "copy" over the factory settings, and once you do that, that particular patch is gone for good unless you do a full factory reset which will likely wipe out any settings of your own in the unit itself. Then, you are left to download one by one all the patches you have saved to "My Tones" Am I correct on all the above??? I would like to know the individual factory patches are available for download just in case I want to reload it. Any help is appreciated!! Also, this is my review of the Firehawk at this point: First, it is a bright brassy sounding unit. It's great for a lot of distortion tones but to me does not appear to be designed for a straight guitar sound like you would use for a straight rhythm or Country Music style leads. Also to me, even a lot of the distortion patches are brassy sounding. That is my conclusion so far after a couple hours of playing with the settings. Consider also this is my opinion in the way that I am connecting the unit. I am only running the mono out directly into my old solid state Peavey Special 130 amp. Running thru a tube amp or sound system may make a big difference but I still think this unit is very bright and digital sounding. I have been trying to find a "warm" tube amp straight sound. The way I was finally successful in getting very close was to start with an unedited "User" patch that you will find at 30.A. Then I added and edited Eq. and compression, delay and reverb, possibly noise gate if you want. Doing this was faster and easier than trying to edit an existing factory patch. I was considering returning the unit until I figured this out because it is just too bright sounding to me. I am still using my old old Digitech RP 10 and I think it sounds better than the new wonderful Firehawk. Just my 5 cents worth, but I still have a mountain of editing to do with the Firehawk. In all fairness, the RP10 was pretty digital sounding also until I eventually tweeked in the right amount of compression and e.q. for my taste, but over the years I have been very satisfied with it. I do think however that the Firehawk is actually worse in that respect. Hard to believe in this advanced stage of electronic evolution we live in. I'm not convinced we have totally overcome the need for tubes! Thanks all!!! Jay
  20. after being a bit bored with my only electric guitar an ibanez S470 and jar'd off with my last guitar purchase (fake epiphone) i thought i would play around on my Ibanez Talman (TCM-50NT120) which is an acoustic-electric and HD500. i am not using any amp modelling and connecting the hd500 Via the left and right xlr outs to my MG16XU mixer for its built in compression, reverb effects and EQ then the mixer to an Home theater center for amp, i am quite smacked how nice the talman sounds and even more so when running multi echo effects. odd thing is i have not picked the talman up for ages and now it feels easier to play than my Ibanez s470 which is a bonus, anyway ... my question is to get the best out of using multi echo effects with the hd500 are there any standard ways to get the best results ? does anyone have any advice on the maximum number of echo effects running together and controlling them ?
  21. Overview: I use an M13 normally without any issue running into a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue. Read about the 4CM method and wanted to test it since the Blues Deluxe has an effects loop, so I ordered a pedal snake. Got everything set up where it tested fine without adjusting where the send/return fell within the individual effects (FX) banks (i.e. Pre-all). So, then I went into the M13, set up a new scene for testing. For each FX bank, I dialed in the same effects: phaser, chorus and flanger at default settings so no matter what effect bank I chose, each effect would be at the same settings. I tested this and each bank played each effect properly. (in order, bank FX1/phaser, bank FX2/phaser, etc.) I then went into scene setup and set the effects loop for PostFX1, and went to test the difference between the effect in FX1 and FX2. Immediately I heard that FX2 was not applying the effect. The same occurred for FX3 & FX4. I then tested the chorus and flanger similarly - FX1 played the signal with the effect applied while FX2, 3 & 4 played the signal without the effect. I can't figure out why this is happening - I am guessing it is some simple setting but can't find it. Can anyone help?

    Dated Sound with effects pedals

    I was thinking about old vintage valve amps from the sixties and the type of effects they used back then, which as far as I can make out the old purist's will pay a lot of money for, anyway this may sound stupid to some but I cant help but wonder, as everything seems to be going digital these days. if say in 30 years time people will saying and discussing in forums, how to get the same sound as an old Line 6 Pod HD500X or similar lol
  23. I just got off the phone with Line6 support who confirmed my dilemma. Here’s my situation: Solo acoustic artist Want to record every show Have an M20d, L3t, & L3m Love the L3t acoustic modeling Haven’t been able to recreate the same tone/body with M20d DSP effects/presets If I plug guitar into L3t and take its Mix Out back to the M20d, it competes with L6 Link (feedback loop) Bottom line, if I want to use M20d (which I do for recording, vocals FX, setup/scene recalls, etc), I can’t use L3t's acoustic modeling So… Has anyone found the right M20d DSP chain and dialed in the best combo of FX presets to emulate L3t’s acoustic modeling? If so, can you please share the chain & each block’s settings? I will also post this feature request as an idea for their next firmware update here -> http://line6.ideascale.com/
  24. Greeting to you all, Newbie here. I purchased a 500x because I wanted a portable multi effects pedal board with amp tones if I chose to use them. I love the tones I get from the amps I already have, I just want to use effects when I need them. I learned how to turn off all effects and amp settings. I went in and changed the input source to be "guitar" for input 1 and "same" for input 2. I plugged the guitar into the "guitar in" of the 500x, and from the "unbalanced out left", I went to the front of the amp. I wasn't getting the full power of the amp. Something wasn't right. It sounded like the 500x was limiting the power somehow. I just wanted to have the amp be like it is if you plug in directly to the input of the head, but have effects programmed to any preset on the 500x. Like using pedals. Once I get this figured out, I'll try the 4 cable method, which I think is a good way to go, but one step at a time for this newbie. :) I appreciate the responses. Cheers
  25. Hi all, I know there has been plenty written by us customers about having a schematic of the routing through the "dream rig" and I can somewhat understand why that is difficult for Line6 to do, because there is so much software configurability and DSP areas in the process, it is almost like asking how long is a piece of string... However, I am looking into DT25 for my GIG rig and I am currently confused about how/where "post amp block" effects sit within the signal chain, bearing in mind a specific configuration... (as below) HD POD config looks like... Pre Section - Split path section - mixer block - post section - outputs (generic pod setup) for this discussion lets say it is effectively a mono path, so lets not talk about "panning or stereo" and so on... just keeping it "simple".. in the pre section is FX1 in the Split path (path a) i have FX2 followed by an AMP block (amp configured as a Pre version of the amp) in post section i have FX3. if I then set the "Audio Configuration" for the DT25 to be LEFT... then from the documents I understand it gets fed the signal from the end of the POD chain into the real POWER AMP (with topology/class etc. as configured by the pre amp specifics)... (I also understand that if I set the Audio Configuration to AMP A... the signal would go straight after the amp block to the power amp, and miss out the POST section and MIXER completely...(and incidently any FX placed after the amp block...) MY REAL QUESTION... is it possible to use the DT25 as the pre amp modeller and real power amp AND get the same FX placement (without using the 4CM)? e.g. POD config FX1 - FX2 - blank amp block - FX3 audio path would have to be POD(FX1 - FX2) - > DT25 preamp -> POD (FX3) -> DT25 power amp - DT25 reverb... another side question is does the audio ever "go back to the POD from the DT25..." im guessing not, and if so my answer to my real question is... it's not possible... Interested in anyones thoughts.
