  1. I've started to set up a patch, so far an EQ, Compressor, Distortion (Heavy Dist) and Parametric EQ in that order, all are on channel A with no amps selected yet as I'm going into my live amp head and quad. Input 1 is set to 'Guitar'. Input 2 set to 'Variax'. On the mixer, channel A is set to centre < 0% > and channel B is muted. When I turn the volume knob on my guitar down to 0, I can hear sound coming through the amp when I pluck the strings, it outputs a clean tone minus all the distortion. On the other patches I've downloaded from Customtone there is no bleed through but I want to learn to build patches from scratch so I learn what's going on rather than customising other patches. What could be causing the sound to still ring through when the volume is supposedly switched off? s
  2. After seeing the interest expressed in my EQ frequency responses, I decided to take the HD500 back into the lab to measure gain. How much gain is there from the various inputs? How much gain thru the various EQ (my previous post lists some of that)? Perhaps look at gain thru some of the FX? Or maybe I shouldn't look at gain. I am soliciting other ideas to look at while I have it in the lab. Do any of you have any ideas?
  3. I just got the L3t and absolutely love it. Sounds amazing! I wish the L6 link worked differently through the HD500 and the L3t. I wish the Master Volume on the HD500 did not become the slave (doesn't change volume at all) to the L3t's volume knob to control the overall volume (sorry for the poor wording). I wish that was reversed. The interesting connectivity between the HD500 and the L3t could be better. Hopefully it is just user error or if not, this will change in the future with an update. Am I correct in this being the way the HD500 works with the L3t through L6 link? I also want to be able to select L3t Speaker Modes inside of the HD500 through a menu, not just by switching the Speaker Mode in each preset and then saving into the HD500 this way. Any thoughts you guys have? The HD500 sounds incredible going into the L3t through L6, but the functionality goes out the window because you can't control the speaker from the HD500. The HD500 master volume knob shutting off is a No-No. It should be that the L3t's Master Volume Knob becomes the slave to the HD500's master volume or if nothing else, both master volumes continue to be able to change the volume, like if you just go 1/4 inch line output from the HD500 into the Line Output in the back of the L3t. Any input or thoughts would be great! Thanks guys.
  4. I have a FBV express mkII with my POD x3, and was wondering if I could use this together with my HD500. Would that be possible? As an optional foot controller for instance? Since there is no FBV input I've probably have to use midi in/out then. Or might it be another way?
  5. So where is everyone placing the Eq's in the chain. Ie before or after the amp. Which seems to work best for you?
  6. Hi all, Well, I just got my new Pod HD500. Registered it, installed the software, played around with a few of the factory presets and realized there's no way I can take this to band practice tonight! I'll probably spend the weekend programming patches and learning my way around it. I have an old Korg AX-300G multieffect pedal, so at least I know how to add effects and edit parameters. I play a Fender American Strat and two Gibson Les Paul Studios, one with custom pickups, usually into a Fender Blues Junior or into a 100-watt Twin amp if I need insane volume. I play blues and rock, mostly crunch with chorus or phase, wah and delays. I'm not a shredder (not fast enough anyway!) and I'm not into making weird whooping noises. Question: What 3 tips would you give someone just starting out with an HD500?
  7. Hi, I'm very much enjoying my DT25 head and POD HD500. I also use it in conjunction with a couple of pedals in front of the HD500 and couple in the FX loop (e.g Strymon delay post preamp) I am considering buying a second DT25 head - so I can really get presence on stage, either with two amps running the same tone, or two totally different amps models (e.g. Twin and Divided by 13). However, if I connect the 2nd DT25 via L6 link from the first DT25, and if I use a foot pedal (e.g. Fulltone OCD) in front of POD HD500, then will both amps take on the sound of e.g. the Fulltone OCD (because it is at the front of the signal chain)? Or, is there a way to route connections within the POD HD 500 that means that I am able to run the amps clean/dirty, completely independently of each other, and crucially, that the second DT25 won't be affected by the pedals in front of the first DT25? How would I do this? I'm assuming I have to set up two FX loops, one in the HD500 pre amp models, the second fx loop using the loop on the back of the amps? Or can I have more than one loop in the HD500 pre/post amp model? (Although I don't have enough loop connections in the HD500 do I?) Thanks, Ben see attached diagram
  8. I'm trying to configure the pod midi to control the program saved in my head H&K switchblade 100. I follow the video tutorial posted on line 6 forum but nothing. I connect on pod the midi on out/thru and on the head in input. I configure the pod to send a program change (i also try with bank change) but when i press the configured button nothing happend. Any hints? NB. I use the original cable (7pin to 5pin) used by the FSM434 MKII (the manual tells that the cable is standard).
  9. I am running the pod HD500 in dual amp mode panned hard left and hard right. Since the dsp is limiting I have an external delay and reverb which I run through the FX loop. How do I set it up to put the fx loop after the amp? It only gives me one FX loop position to use so I can't put one on the left amp and one on the right amp. If I use it on one of the amps it only goes to one side, if I place it after the pre amp it makes it mono sounding. How do I get a stereo FX loop?
  10. Hello, I'd like to place the power-amp from a marshall into the FX loop block, do I just run the speaker cable from the amp into FX return on HD? Good call gentlemen, Most would say ignorance is stifling, I find it liberating. I was thinking about the sig chain. When using a full amp the mods come after power amp (I would think this better for plugging into line level/-10db?) When using pre-amp, mods are before power-amp (I would use +4db amp setting?). Now back to my ignorance, which chain is most practiced?
  11. La version française. Zur deutschen Version. With the latest v2.0 update for the DT25/DT50 amplifiers, you must send MIDI parameters to the amp to change the settings such as the preamp models. Here are the links to the MIDI documentation to reference when programming your MIDI gear to send the proper parameters to control the settings of the DT series amplifiers: Using the POD HD500/HD500x to Send MIDI Parameters to the DT amplifiers You can use the POD HD500 as a MIDI controller to send MIDI CC parameters to change. Just connect the MIDI OUT from the POD HD500/HD500x to the MIDI IN on the DT amplifier with a MIDI cable. Then, go in the POD HD500/HD500x's MIDI assign screen (by holding the MOVE button for a few seconds) to assign a footswitch to send the desired MIDI parameters to change the settings on the DT amplifier. From here, you need to reference the DT amplifier's MIDI CC reference charts above to assign the proper MIDI CC to a footswitch on the POD HD500/HD500x. For example, on the DT50 amplifiers, sending MIDI CC# 11 with a value of 0-30 will change the assigned HD amp model set to any one of the voicings on Channel A of the DT50. So, if you want to change Voicing I of Channel A on the DT50 amp from the original Fender Blackface to be a Hiway 100 amp model instead, do the following: On any preset (blank or not) on the POD, go to the POD's MIDI Assign screen by holding the MOVE button for a few seconds. We suggest doing this on a blank new preset so that you can use this preset to send these MIDI messages to your DT amplifier. Let's assign Footswitch 1 (FS1) to send MIDI CC# 11 with a value of 003. Press on FS1 so that the arrow is pointing to it in the POD's screen. Turn Knob 1 to select MIDI CH: Base. Turn Knob 2 to select Message: CC. Turn Knob 3 to select CC# 011. Turn Knob 4 to select Value: 003. You can exit the MIDI Assign screen by pressing the View button once. Now, by simply pressing the FS1 footswitch, you will be sending MIDI CC# 11 value 003 to the DT50 amp which will change the Voicing I of Channel A on the DT50 amp from the original Fender Blackface to be a Hiway 100 amp model. Press the Save button once, rename the preset with the knobs below the screen, then press the Save button once again to store these settings to the POD's preset. MIDI CC#11 value 0-30 will change the HD amp model on Channel A of the selected voicing on the DT25/DT50 amp. MIDI CC#12 value 0-30 will change the HD amp model on Channel B of the selected voicing on the DT25/DT50 amp. Here are reference charts for both the DT25 and the DT50 from the MIDI Reference guide to help you set your values when programming MIDI to the switches of the POD HD500/HD500x. MIDI can be assigned to any of the footswitches of the POD HD500/HD500x EXCEPT for the Bank Up and Bank Down switches. Using MIDI OX to send MIDI parameters to the DT amplifiers You can also use MIDI OX software to send the desired MIDI messages to your DT amplifier when using a dedicated MIDI interface connected between your computer set to work with MIDI OX and the DT amplifier's MIDI IN port. In MIDI OX, click on the Send MIDI Controller Messages button to see the following window: You’ll want to use the drop down window to select the desired controller event (as referenced in the documentation above such as MIDI CC# 11 or CC#12, etc.) and then select the value on the right (as in the previous example above, value of 0-30, etc.) then, hit the Send button to send that MIDI message to the DT amplifier. Notice the text by the numbers which are simply part of the standard MIDI spec. These descriptors are irrelevant for the DT amps – again, just look for the number that correlates to the DT parameter you want to send. It also may be confusing that the numbers are not listed sequentially. If you wanted to change the preamp for the current Voicing of channel A you would select number 11 (labeled expression in the MIDI OX drop down) and number 3 (if you wanted to load the Hiway 100 model for example) using the up/down buttons in the field labeled Value. Hit send and the current Voicing on Channel A should be the Hiway 100. Avec la dernière mise à jour 2.0 pour le DT25 et DT50, vous devez transférer des paramètres MIDI pour changer des configurations comme les modèles préamplis. Documentation MIDI : L’utilisation du POD HD500 ou HD500x pour la transmission des paramètres MIDI : Vous pouvez utiliser POD HD 500 ou HD 500x comme contrôleur MIDI pour transmettre des informations MIDI CC. Connectez le MIDI OUT du POD HD500/500x au MIDI IN de l’ampli DT avec un câble MIDI. Dans le menu MIDI Assign (maintenez le bouton MOVE pour quelques secondes) et assignez la fonction MIDI désirée a un des commutateurs au pied pour changer les configurations sur le DT. D’ici, utilisez la référence MIDI CC des amplis DT au-dessus pour assigner des commandes MIDI CC propres à un commutateur au pied POD HD500/HD500x. Exemple : Sur l’ampli DT50, envoyer une commande MIDI CC# 11 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD à un des tons sur le canal A du DT50. Donc, si vous voulez changer le ton 1 du canal A sur le DT50 d’un Fender Blackface à un modèle Hiway 100 : Sur un des presets (vide ou pas) sur le POD naviguez dans l’écran MIDI Assign (en maintenant le bouton MOVE pour quelques secondes.) Nous suggérons de faire ca avec un preset vide, comme ca, vous pouvez l’utiliser pour transmettre des commandes MIDI à l’ampli DT. Assignez Footswitch 1 (FS1) la commande MIDI CC# 11 avec une valeur de 003. Cliquez FS1 (la flèche doit pointer au FS1 sur l’écran du POD). Tournez le bouton pour sélectionner MIDI CH : Base. Tournez-le pour sélectionner Message : CC. Tournez-le pour sélectionner CC# 011. Tournez-le pour sélectionner Value : 003. Quittez l’écran MIDI Assign avec le bouton View. Poussez FS1 pour envoyer la commande MIDI CC#11 avec valeur 003 à l’ampli DT. Cette action changera le ton 1 du canal A sur le DT de Fender Blackface à Hiway 100. Poussez le bouton Save, renommez le preset avec les boutons dessous l’écran et poussez Save encore une fois pour enregistrer les configurations. MIDI CC#11 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD sur canal A du ton sélecté sur l’ampli DT25/DT50. MIDI CC#12 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD sur canal B du ton sélecté sur l’ampli DT25/DT50. Tableaux de référence : Vous pouvez assigner MIDI à tous les commutateurs à pied sur le POD HD500/HD500x sauf les commutateurs Bank Up et Bank Down. L’utilisation de MIDI OX pour envoyer des paramètres MIDI aux amplis DT : Vous pouvez utiliser le logiciel MIDI OX pour transmettre des paramètres MIDI à votre ampli DT si vous utilisez une interface MIDI connecté à votre ordinateur et le MIDI IN du DT. En MIDI OX, cliquez « Send MIDI Controller Messages » pour voir cet écran : Utilisez le menu déroulant pour sélecter la commande, comme MIDI CC#11 ou CC#12. Après, vous pouvez sélecter la valeur sur le côté droit. (Une valeur de 0 à 30). Cliquez « Send » pour transmettre le paramètre à votre ampli DT. Ici vous pouvez voir les descriptions a côté des nombres, ignorez-les. Cherchez le nombre que vous voulez configurer sur le DT. Exemple : Si vous voulez changer le préampli du ton sélectez sur canal A, vous sélectez #11 (le texte dit que c’est « Expression » mais ignorez ca.) et 3 dans le menu « Value » si vous voulez le Hiway 100. Seit der neusten Aktualisierung 2.0 für die DT25 und DT50 Verstärker müssen Sie MIDI Parameter and den Verstärker senden um Eisntellungen wie Vorverstärkermodelle zu verändern. Quellen zur MIDI Programmierung: MIDI Parameter per POD HD500/HD500x übertragen: Sie können das POD HD500 als MIDI Controller verwenden um MIDI CC Parameter zu übertragen. Schließen Sie dazu den MIDI OUT Ausgang des POD HD500/500x an den MIDI IN Eingang am DT Verstärker mit einem MIDI Kabel an. Öffnen Sie dann das MIDI Assign Menu auf dem POD indem Sie den MOVE Knopf gedrückt halten um hier nun einen Fußschalter zuzuweisen, der dann die MIDI Parameter and den DT Verstärker versendet. Von hier an sollten Sie das oben erwähnte Referenzmaterial verwenden um die korrekten MIDI Parameter auf den Fußschalter zuzuweisen. Zum Beispiel: Wenn Sie vom POD die MIDI Parameter MIDI CC#11 mit einm Wert von 0 bis 30 an den DT Verstärker verschicken, wird das ausgewählte HD Verstärkermodell auf einen der Töne des Kanals A vom DT50 umstellen. Was also bedeutet, dass wenn Sie Voicing 1 des Kanals A auf dem Verstärker vom original Fender Blackface auf einen Hiway 100 umstellen wollen, machen Sie folgendes: Von irgendeinem Preset aus, öffnen Sie das MIDI Assign Menu indem Sie den MOVE Knopf gedrückt halten. Wir empfehlen, dass Sie einen freien Preset Slot verwenden, sodass Sie weiterhin von diesem Slot aus die MIDI Parameter versenden können. Verwenden wir nun Fußschalter 1 (FS 1) um die Parameter MIDI CC#11 mit Wert 003 zu versenden. Drücken Sie dazu auf den FS1 sodass der Pfeil auf den POD Bildschirm zeigt. Drehen Sie dann Knopf 1 um MIDI CH: Base auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 2 um Message: CC auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 3 um CC#011 auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 4 um Value: 003 auszuwählen. Jetzt können Sie das Fenster verlassen indem Sie den View Knopf drücken. Nun können Sie, indem Sie FS1 drücken, die zugewählten MIDI Parameter an den Verstärker senden, was in unserem Fall dazu führt, dass Voicing 1 auf Kanal A auf das Hiway 100 Modell umgestellt wird. Drücken Sie den Save Knopf. Bennen Sie das Preset mit den Knöpfen unter dem Bildschirm um und drücken Sie dann wiederum Save um alle Einstellungen auf dem Preset abzuspeichern. MIDI CC#11 Wert 0-30 verändert das HD Verstärker Modell auf dem gewählten Voicing des Kanals A des DT Verstärkers. MIDI CC#12 Wert 0-30 verändert das HD Verstärker Modell auf dem gewählten Voicing des Kanals B des DT Verstärkers. Hier noch Listen der MIDI Parameter als Referenz: MIDI Parameter mit MIDI OX versenden: Sie können auch die MIDI OX Software verwenden um MIDI Parameter an den DT Verstärker zu schicken. Dazu benötigen Sie eine MIDI Schnittstelle für Ihren Computer, den Sie dann an den MIDI IN des Verstärkers anschließen, sowie an Ihren Computer. Klicken Sie im MIDI OX Fenster auf Send MIDI „Controller Messages“. Folgendes Fenster öffnet sich: Verwenden Sie dann das Dropdown Menu um den gewünschten MIDI CC# auszuwählen. Wählen Sie dann einen Wert aus auf der rechten Seite und klicken Sie den „Send“ Knopf. Achtung, im Dropdown Menu werden den Zahlen verschiedene Texte zugewiesen. Ignorieren Sie diese einfach. Die Beschreibungen sind hier irrelevant. Suchen Sie nach der Nummer und wählen Sie diese aus. Die Zahlen Sind außerdem nicht immer geordnet. Wenn Sie also das Voicing des Kanals A einstellen wollen, wählen Sie Nummer 11. Nummer 11 hat bei uns zum Beispiel die Beschreibung „Expression“, die uns aber nicht weiter interessiert. Außerdem wählen Sie die Nummer 3 im „Value“ Feld. Klicken Sie dann „Send“. Das derzeitige Voicing des A Kanals sollte nun auf Hiway 100 gestellt sein.
  12. Q: Why do presets I built from scratch sound different than similar factory presets? A: When creating new presets from scratch and comparing the tone to an existing factory preset with the same settings, please remember to check the mixer settings of that preset to see if they may be different than how you have it set in your own preset.? If the mixer settings of the factory preset are different than the mixer settings of another identical preset, they can both sound different than each other even though they share the same amp model and tone settings. The mixer settings are saved per preset and are NOT global.
