    Pod Hd500x Pedal 2

    Hi all, I just made the switch from the TC G System to the HD500X. I'm busily downloading tones and trying to come up with some good tones that I can use in a worship setting. I play in a church that seats about 1,100. My plan is to run my Les Paul studio deluxe into the POD then direct out mono to the board. (Until I maybe get a James Tyler Variax....) My question: I am experimenting with using a pedal plugged into the "pedal 2" jack. I'm using the same pedal that I used with the G System, a Boss FV-500H, which seems to work great. The G System allowed me to turn on effects simply by using the pedal. For example, if I have the pedal assigned to a wah, I can just start sweeping the pedal and the wah would activate. If I stopped moving it for an assignable amount of time (1 sec, 2 sec immediately, etc) the wah would turn off. If I have to assign the wah to a switch then go over to pedal 2, then I will probably just use the pedal on the board with the toe switch. Where this really becomes a problem is when I'm using #2 to change delay feedback or verb decay, then use the toe switch to go back to the volume, my effect will stay at its highest point. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks Dave
  2. I recently purchased an HD POD 500x and have been trying to download patches from customtone.com there are plenty of patches that id love to hear but all i can download are those with the h5e extension i believe anything else for example, l6t, or h3e are all errors. I use the drag and drop method but like mentioned above it only works for the h5e extention. help please? what can I do to download those patches? Or am I limited to h5e patches?

    Pod Hd500x Usb Connection Problems

    I've installed drivers for my POD HD500X without any errors on my PC with Windows 7. But when I try to connect my POD to PC - it can't find drivers and wrote, than device is not connected. When I run Line 6 Monkey it displays that I don't have installed drivers. WTF?
  4. All, I'm very keen to get the HD500x, but I currently don't have the cash to do the whole dream rig thing (using the DT50 or L2M). I currently have my Vetta II.. and I'm looking for advice for the best way to interface the two. In particular, the best was to use the HD500X to do all the tones/FX, and the Vetta II to basically just act as a "powered speaker." My first thought would be to use the "FX Loop" block at the end of the signal chain on the HD500X, and and use the FX Send (100% Mix) FROM the HD500X TO the FX Receive on the Vetta II - more or less bypassing the amp tones and stomp FX on the Vetta II. I figured I would also have to make a patch on the Vetta II that has all the post-FX turned off to do this right. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!
  5. I'm using OSX and an HD500X upgraded to the latest firmware. When using garageband with the HD500X connected via USB, the sound quality is terrible. It is distorted badly compared to plugging headphones directly into the HD500X. I've lowered the OS X input level in system utilities to make sure I'm not clipping. I'm using garageband for monitoring and master and track levels are correct. I've also made sure I'm using a "real instrument" and not adding anything to the audio. So checked all the obvious stuff. I owned an HD500 before the 500X and there was a known issue with audio via USB where it was unusable because of noise on the input. Something about a chipset conflict or incompatibility. I ended up having to use analog out from the HD500. So I'm wondering if this is the same issue with the HD500X that is still unresolved? Anyone else having this same issue or have any insights to share? Thanks, Mark.

    Pod Hd500x Factory Preset List

    Hi, I am new in the pod world and just receive my HD500X. I would like to know if somebody has a list with the factory presets with some music, style reference or the main effects and amps of each preset. Thank you all,
  7. Sorry I'm not patient enough to go through all these threads or to pay the toll on a customer service call, but I'm merely wondering if any of the POD pedals have the ability to control pedal bending or have a pedal bend patch. I'm particularly hoping to invest in the HD500x. Many thanks!
  8. I tried to do this last night and it sounded really bad. I switched the XLR to the balanced mono on the Pro and the input on the L2M and it sounded a little better. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to turn off the cab sims? Do I put the DSP on the L2M to Line or Electric Guitar? Help!!!!

    Hd500x Noise When Engaging A Patch

    I know this has been addressed in the forums before but after searching a couple different wordings I was not able to fnd anything. Anyways the problem I am having is a I am getting a noise spike when I engage a specific patch that has a very heavy chorus and delays. This spike not only appears when switching to this patch but when I reengage the patch also. If anyone could point me to the original threads or give me some insight on how get rid of the spike I would appreciate any insight.
  10. I had the strangest thing happening to me today. I went to my band rehearsal and after playing for about 30 minutes the display screen kept jumping from the signal chain to the knob display as if I was a adjust a knob on the HD500X. I'm connected to my DT25 via the L6 link and my JTV via the VDI cable. I had previously been using this set up with my HD500 for at least a year and had no issue. I even used this same setup and cords 3 weeks ago without issue. If I disconnect the L6 link it's fine (of course I have no sound though.) When I the screen changes it actually shows that he Mid has been turned all the way up. I can move it back and then when the screen flashes it has moved back to 99%. This happens across the board on the patches. I even swapped out cords and same thing. Now the venue makes me a a custom snake that has my power supply extened, 1/4" and L6 cable loomed to together as one cord. I'm 99% sure it's a regular XLR they used. But I've gotten by for 2 years with it and one show with the HD500X. I have an AES/EBU cable somewhere so I'm going to try that and hope it works. If anyone has had anything simlar and has fixed it with some sort of hard boot or firmware upgrade/reload please let me know. I have 3 gigs this weekend and I need to come up with a plan B if swapping the cord for AES/EBU doesn't solve it. I practiced all day today with just the HD hooked up to my PC so I definitely know it has something to do with the Link. And yes I tried numerous times of turning both the amp and pod off and on again. Thank you, Dave

    Problems With Hd500x Pitch Glide

    Guys I need your help D: I got my HD500X yesterday, and so far I'm hating the pitch glide When I set it +1 octave up single notes sound great, but when I try to play songs like My iron lung or subterranean homesick alien, the sound is horrible, I've seen in the forum that the pitch glide is not polyphonic, but I've heard that some people were able to fix this, and I dont want to buy a Digitech Whammy just for multiple notes. Is there a way to fix this? I play a lot of radiohead, muse and U2 covers in my band, so...+1 octave up is a crucial effect :) Thanks in advance.
  12. I posted this in the old forum months ago, since many peole found it useful I thought I could re-post it here: ___ I really think these are important things not stated (or in some cases not clearly stated) in the manual, that you need to know to start seriously programming your POD HD I ran some serious tests on my Pod HD 500 and here is what I found out (I made my tests on a POD HD500 but this is valid for HD500X and HD Pro and is very similar for the "bean" version too), I'll try to be as synthetic (but complete and clear) as possible, but this is going to be a long reading so sit down and take your time or just go surfing somewhere else §§§ In short: the "famous" [input-1: guitar / input-2: variax] setting gives you different levels of signal depending on the position of the first *mono* effect block you use (amplifiers included), in particular you LOSE 6dB in the "pre" path in comparison to the path A/B or post path (note that this is not the same as saying that you gain 6dB with input-2 to "same", read on). [ if you don't know what I'm talking about just go and read this thread: http://line6.com/support/thread/74045?start=0&tstart=0 then come back here to hear a different opinion on the matter] first of all, try it out: - connect a guitar to the guitar input and the Left output to a full-range linear amp (or use your headphones) - recall a "new tone" default blank patch - set input-1 to Guitar and input-2 to Variax - set mixer channel A fader to unity (0.0dB) and pan to center - set mixer channel B fader to mute - setup a noise gate* with the threshold set to 0% in "pre" position (with this setting this IS a unity gain mono fx block) - play thru it - now if you bypass it, you'll hear that it looses 6dB of level when it's active (I initially thought this was noise gate's fault, but it's NOT) - now re-activate the noise gate and move it in A or "post" path - now if you try to bypass it you'll hear that it does NOT loose any dB - try moving the block back and forth between pre and A or post paths and you'll hear more level in path A or post than in pre this was already found out at least by hurghanico here: http://line6.com/support/message/403287#403287 but it's so important that needs a dedicated and more detailed thread. [* you can repeat the experiment with other mono effects instead of a noise gate but keep in mind that, if you want to clearly hear a level difference, you need a mono unity gain (www.music-dictionary.org/unity_gain) effect, for example: - a tube comp with thresh 100% & level 2% settings will work just as the noise gate above - an fx loop block with a mono cable connected between send and return will work just the same (but also read point 2 below) - do it with an amp with medium-low gain and, moving it between pre and A or post paths, you'll hear a significant difference in gain/ovedrive/distortion, not only level difference] §§§ OK now that you heard it, let's see it in detail; these are the REAL schemes of the pod and fx blocks routing, yes it's done by hand and I love it ;-) As you can see the pre path is a "dual-path" while A, B and post are all stereo paths; at the splitting point, where the path A and B are born, the signal coming from input-1 is splittted to the Left and Right channels of the path A and the signal coming from input-2 is splittted to the Left and Right channels of the path B; furthermore all fx blocks have TWO inputs and two outputs and the mono blocks do attenuate by 6dB and sum their inputs, then process the result and then split their mono output to both outputs of the block; for those who don't know, notice that: - "splitting" means duplicating one mono signal to two "routes" - and summing those two identical signals means doubling the level of the original signal (which equals to 6dB more) [and some side-notes: - the "stereo dry & mono wet" effects are for example the pitch effects and the "dry" type delays, I'm not considering this type of effects in this post, but they work as expected from the scheme you see above; - you can find a list of all the fx blocks divided by type here: http://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/pod/pod-hd/stereomono-fx-list-for-pod-hd-r567 where "stereo dry & mono wet" blocks are called "Stereo Thru/Mono Effect" which I personally find less clear - the mixer control named as "pan" is actually a "balance" control because if you move it to one side (e.g.: left) it acts on the stereo or dual mono signal by doing NOTHING on that side (left) and ATTENUATING the opposite side (right)] §§§ So, summarizing, if you only activate input-1, in the pre path, the first mono effect is attenuating the input 1 and 2 and summing them, but, since input-2 is actually silence, you loose 6dB; in A, B and post paths the effects are receiving a doubled signal on L/R, so the mono blocks, attenuating and summing the two signals, receive the right signal level to process so using "same" or "guitar" for input-2 does not mean to gain anything, but having a constant doubled signal wich is compensated by a 6dB attenuation in each mono summing it encounters in his flow please note that I am NOT saying that using only input-1 is wrong, you just need to know that this can give you different gain results depending on the position of the first mono effect with only input-1 active (Guitar/Variax) and the same parameter values, this: is giving you more distortion than that: now, if you use those two setups with "Input-1: Guitar / Input-2: Same", you get EXACTLY the same sound with both and this is something that can not be ignored ...don't know how to be more clear than that
  13. I am trying to map program changes sent to the Timeline. Currently the Timeline sees 1-to-1 from the Pod, meaning as I step through my Pod presets the Timeline will follow sequentially. I don't want to have to match the position of the Timeline's presets to that of any given Pod Playlist that I'll be using for live performance - I'd like to map each Pod preset to a Timeline preset by sending a simple program change. I have followed the POD Advanced User Guide to the letter, but it persists in sending program changes to the Timeline sequentially. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks in advance for any help!
  14. "Paul Hindmarsh from Line 6 shows us how the Line6 L2t Loudspeakers can be used alongside the POD HD500 to create an amazingly versatile setup that can be used in variety of scenarios" This Video was the Reason I upgraded my setup to include a L2t, I wanted to be able to get the amazing electric guitar sounds from my HD500X and the Amazing Variax Acoustic sounds in one single setup, I do own a DT25 Which I love but I have never figured out how to get a decent Variax acoustic sound to the FOH Mixer. Now that I have this setup, I have issues and questions to make it sound right. My main concern here is to find an answer or best advise on how to send a signal to the FOH Mixer for both the Electric Guitar Sounds and the Variax Acoustic Sounds. In a real life situation ( Live Setting ) When I connect the HD500X to the L2t via L6 Link, the default behavior HD500 to "Combo" and L2t to "Electric Guitar". - I am sure this is for a Reason. On that Video, Paul talks about programing both units for the desired sound behavior, for example: - He was using the L2t as an Electric Guitar mode and when changing to acoustic the L2t would reconfigure to Acoustic Guitar Mode. - I wonder what would be the ideal Output mode on the HD500 for this.. One thing that confuses me the most, he was MIKING the L2t!!.. So, This is telling me that there is not an easy way to get the best of both signals ( Electric & Variax Acoustic ) from the XLR outs of the HD500.. My questions is How can I Realisticaly use this setup in a Live situation and get the best of both worlds? I know I have already posted about this topic but I must be persistent and be able to figure something out based on the opinions and advise of what I think are some of the finest knowledgeable users and experts. Please Help.

    Importing Hd500 Presets To Hd500x

    Does anyone know if it is possible to import HD500 presets/set list/bundles into the HD500X? The editor won't do it. . .thought there might be a trick or an update for it.
  16. Hello This is my first post in years. I just purchased a Line6 POD HD500X. I have installed the Line6 HD500X Edit software but It cannot open any of the tones from http://line6.com/customtone/ I have to first save the tone to an area of my hard drive, click file, open, use the drop down arrow to select "all files" to open anything I find on Customtone. Most of the tones I have found are .h5e extensions but I also cannot open .5xe directly unless I open the tone via the method I have listed above (File, open...etc...) Any tips or ideas? Thanks SynSin

    Hd500x And Toneport Ux8

    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!

    Hd500x + L2t Correct Settings

    Hello, Please help me figure what it the best way to configure this setup. This is what I have: Variax JTV69 - HD500X - L2t These are my Questions: 1.- What would be the optimum output mode on the HD500X when using with the L2t? - Studio/Direct? - should I always use the PRE amp models? 2.- What would be the optimum speaker mode on the L2t when using with the HD500X? - Does the L2t auto select the speaker mode depending on the preset? it auto selects Electric guitar - Are this speaker modes able to be saved in the HD500X presets? 3.- What would be the best Speaker mode of the L2t when using the Variax acoustic models thru the HD500? - How can I Best reproduce or send this sound thru the FOH? Your opinion and advice will be Greatly appreciated.

    Just Another Dsp Thread

    Well, decided to take a chance and ordered a 500x. I loaded my primary patch from my 500. I currently run 2 copies of the same patch, one having a dr z, one a %13. FS1 is midi assigned to swap between the 2, more or less acting as a amp channel switch with the other 7 FS' just being a pedalboard. The only problem is that when I swap I lose the current status of my "pedalboard". I'd hoped the 500x would allow me to do nothing more than turn on a second amp but, no luck. The preset is Wah> Compressor> Drive pedal> amp> Tremolo> Rotary cab> Delay Oh well, brighter LCD, hopefully easier to see LED's. Guess I'm going to stick with the 500x being my pedalboard and running stereo amps with EQ's post amp on my HD Pro. Hope this can help anyone running similar size presets decide whether an upgrade is worth while for them.

    Hd500 Vs. Hd500x Comparison Video!

    Well guys, I just uploaded the video. Hopefully this will answer some questions of how the two units compare when trying to build patches. Please share the video if you can!

    Hd500x Power Supply

    Is the power supply for the HD500X the same as the HD500? I guess my real question is can I use my spare HD500 power supply with an HD500X if needed?

    Hd500 Patches Import To Hd500x

    Hey guys, I thought I'd make this a separate post so that it's easier to find for anyone who might be having some issues. The patches for the HD500 do not import directly into the HD500X Edit software at this time. They use different file formats. There is a work-around that I posted earlier, and is being passed around now. All you have to do is change the extension on the patch files: For individual patches, change the extension from .h5e to .5xe For bundles, change the file extension from .h5b to .5xb For setlists, change the file extension from .h5s to .5xs I have found no inconsistencies among the patches from the HD500 Edit to the HD500X Edit using this method. I don't know if/when Line 6 will update the software to allow backwards compatibility, but in the mean time, you can use this method to get your 500 patches to your 500X. UPDATE: Someone else mentioned that you can drag-and-drop individual HD500 files into the tone slots in the 500X Edit software. I can confirm that this works. You will still need to change the file names for set-lists and bundles, though.

    Upgrade Hd500 To Hd500x?

    Considering that many Line6 customers purchased their HD500 till the last month, will current HD500 users be able to upgrade to X version at least for what concern the processor and software? That would keep them safe for further updates from the house that will be all targeted to the new HD500X version from now on (IMHO)... ;)
