    Pod HD500x "DSP Over"

    Hi guys can anyone tell me what is that "DSP Over" ? Why i'm seeing this highlighted text on the Amp icon ? Sorry for english.
  2. Hey all, I've been playing around with my Pod HD500X for a long time now and I recently wanted to take it a step further. I bought a Molten MIDI 2 controller to achieve some interesting sounds. As a huge Muse fan I instantly tried to get the sound of Map of the Problematique. But now, 2 hours later, I'm still stuck in the dark. I've read somewhere (can't find the source any more) that the Molten MIDI 2 is compatible with the Pod HD500X. That's why I purchased it in the first place. All the tutorials you find online use a DigiTech Whammy 4 which I wanted to avoid buying too. When I plug it into the MIDI in it just loops through my presets list and when I plug it into Out/Thru it's reacting like in the tutorial but I'm totally lost in the interface and I can't really get anything to work properly. So my question is: has anyone any experience using a Molten MIDI device and is it possible to use it directly with the Pod HD500X or is it absolutely necessary to get the DigiTech Whammy too? If someone could offer some help or more information I would really appreciate that. Thanks in advance
  3. My POD HD500x doesn't sound harmoniusly rich when i do the following: Phones Output -> Stereo System by using a 1/4"-RCA stereo cable Sounds like bypass. I'm using the Studio/Direct output, although I've tried the other outputs (Combo Pwr Stack, etc.) and changes a little but stills the same. MASTER VOLUME is at half-step. (When I put it 100% it doesn't change either) I go for distortioned presets and it stills sounds so bad When I start from the 1/4" R/L Mono output it stills the same. Cables are fine. I have the last usb firmware, just in case. Any thoughs? Thanks for reading
  4. Hi fellow Line 6 owners, I purchased an hd500x several months ago for live use as the lead guitar player at our local church. I am very very impressed with the hd500x. It is by far the best multi fx unit I've had the pleasure of using. After searching multiple forums/posts I've come to you veterans for any advice or experience that you would be so kind to offer. I use the line 6 ex-1 exp pedal for volume and swells. I run it into the hd500x's "Pedal 2" input. It has great sound, but as many players have found, it isn't very good in the pedal-travel and durability department. So I thought, I'm gonna buy a heavier volume pedal with better travel/volume ratio. So after several hours of research I decided to try the Morley PVO+ Volume Plus Pedal. My error, I've found, is that it isn't compatible when plugged into the "Pedal 2" input on the hd500x. So I tried running my guitar into the morley, then from the morley into to the "guitar in" input on the hd500x. It works, but with inferior sound quality as compared to the ex-1 (Pedal 2 input). Not to mention I'm not impressed with it's volume taper, even after being "adjusted" multiple times with indiscernible results. So, my dilemma lies in finding a new external pedal to run into the (Pedal 2) input for volume and swells. Does anyone know of any well built pedals that are "compatible" to our beloved hd500x and its software? Any owners out there with success using other brands of volume or exp pedals in the (Pedal 2) input? I've read the forums and only found the Mission Engineering EP1-L6 For Line 6. Its nice and all, but $130? If that is my only option I'm inclined to stick with the ex-1. Thank you for patiently reading my lengthy post. Any advice or shared experiences would be very valuable to me as well as greatly appreciated. Sincerely, kkaustin

    connecting to amp

    I have the hd500x and a b-52 half stack. Has anyone used this combination? How did you connect...4 cable or direct in the input on amp? I am looking for the best possible sound.
  6. I really like my HD500X but haven't played for a few months. Got it out this morning to play at church and saw that a firmware update was available . Cool some new amps to play with. Downloaded Line6 Monkey, logged into Line 6, downloaded all the 'stuff' - updated the firmware and then saw that the Flash memory had an update. I started the Flash memory update and all hell broke loose. Now My Macbook crashes when I plug the HD500X into it and the HD500X is rebooting every twenty seconds or so. I used to have a great peddle - now nothing is working. Any help? Runnig OSX V 10.10.5. 16gb of memory. Generally no problems with the Mac.
  7. Hi all, as the title says, dumb question. I'm running a JTV-69 into a HD500x into an Alesis Alpha 112 powered speaker ("500w continuous, 1000w peak"). After a while I wondered how much clean headroom I really had and ran the right 1/4" out from the HD500 into my old Drive G120 (120 watt) combo amp. So at that point, HD500 left 1/4" out into passive DOD A/B box, into Alesis, and HD500 right 1/4" into A/B box, into Drive combo amp. A/B'ing the Alesis vs. the Drive combo, it seems like the combo amp has a ton more headroom than the Alesis. Obviously I'm not much of a gearhead. Any opinions? Notes: -I don't have any complaints about the HD500x into the Alesis, other than that the Alesis is hissy and I'm going to return it and get an Alto or JBL etc instead. Normally I run the HD500x XLR out into the Alesis XLR in. -I had the Alesis a few days before I saw on the interwebs that the Alesis XLR/line input volume knob is misleading in that it's intended to only go up to "5" for line input before risk of blown speaker, but the XLR volume can go up to 10 theoretically. In my trials with the HD500x into the Alesis I am watching the clip light and clipping is not a factor for either the Alesis or the Drive.
  8. Hi guys, I'm facing some confusion you can help me sort out. I'm trying to interface HD500X with external MIDI controller. HD500X can send FS push as MIDI message, and FX stomps can be controlled (enabled/disable) by external MIDI message. Problem is, that these two things are not consistent, i.e. FS push keeps its own state. In reality it behaves like this: - load preset, HD sends MIDI CC messages with values according to initial FS setup - controller reads values (0/127) for FS and indicate status - when using HD switches, controller responds with state toggle acordingly, BUT - when you send MIDI CC to control FX stomp enable disable, HD responds with enable/disable and light indication AND - on next FS push HD doesn't send actual FX stomp acitvation/deactivation, but opposite to the last state when FS has been pushed. 1. HD load and send CC 127 on enabled stomps 2. EXT controller receives messages, saves states, indicate on/off 3. push HD FS - HD sends CC 0 (on FX disable), HD turns LED off, EXT controller disables LED indication, sets internal state to 0 4. push EXT controller, it sends CC 127 -> trying to enable FX stomp, HD receives CC, enables FX and light up LED 5. push HD FS - HD disables FX stomp, but SEND CC 127!!!! = controlling FX on/off isn't consistent when using both controllers Any ideas how to solve this strange behavior? What I need is, that both controllers are with sync. Thanks a lot Regards T.
  9. I am currently running a Taylor T5 into my HD500x then straight into the mixing board. The 500X offers many great sounds (acoustic and electric) but I would like to add a specific overdrive / distortion pedal in the chain. My question is how the input stage of the HD500x will handle a gain pedal. Is there a better way to achieve this? Thanks in advance for any input.

    Question about using the s/pdif out?

    Hey all. So I've got a 6 channel interface. I use all 6 inputs for drums. Would I be able to utilize the S/pdif connections on both my interface and the pod? What input, in logic, would I have to pick in order to record what my Pod is sending through the s/pdif?
  11. I have a HD500x. Just brought home a Variax Acoustic 700 Natural. It appears you cannot use workbench with this combination. Workbench version 1.75 - No support for HD500X It doesn't look like anyone cares about fixing this because they've brought out the wonderful: Workbench HD - No Support for Variax Acoustic Am I missing something or is this combo just not gonna work. It seems Workbench 1.75 came out 3 years ago so I'm guessing it's safe to assume there's no upgrade in the works. Seems a waste...love Line 6 but can't keep up with buying the very latest of each piece of gear just to be sure they're compatible. Fortunately haven't had to pay for this Variax Acoustic yet and not likely I will keep it as I haven't really managed to find the right sound yet and was really hoping the workbench might help me with that.
  12. Hi all. Weird issue here -- I have a newer HD500X and when I plug it into my Mesa Single Rec half stack, I get a crazy loud pulsing buzz. Works great when I run the same line out to my audio interface This buzz happens whether the line 6 has power or not, and with all cables or just the line out plugged into the amp input (both L & R). I tried multiple cable brands/lengths, all the way down to 5'. I tried different pedals and had no issues. I tried flipping the physical switches on the HD. I tried multiple outlets in the house on different breakers. The house is newer and we've never had electricity flow issues. Unfortunately I don't have any other amps to try, but I can always run down to the local Music Go Round if it comes down to it. I've been running live multi-effects setups with amps for years and never experienced anything like this. Video clip below. Anyone have any suggestions? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R3fIg1iJDc

    recommended circuit cleaner

    Hey, one too many beers spilled on the hd500x. What would recommend for an electronic wash to spray the board and switches with?
  14. Hey guys, I totally understand the patch editing in the HD500X. To change the params of the amp, I use those big knobs on the unit: Drive, Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence, Volume. However, I feel much more comfortable using the 4 small knobs below the screen, the ones we use to edit everything else. The big knobs have 2 problems: 1) the start position of the knob is never the same of the parameter set. So when you move the big knob, you almost never can go back to the original value. 2) They are imprecise, it's hard to choose an specific numeric value. I remember in the old days of the great X3 Live, when editing the amp settings, I had the choice to use the big knobs, or the 4 small knobs below the screen. So I wonder: to edit the amp settings, is there any way to use the 4 small knobs on the HD500X?
  15. Hi everyone! I just bought a line 6 POD HD500X pedal and I've read some posts from this forum (http://line6.com/support/topic/1672-can-i-utilize-a-usb-3-cable-for-my-pod-x3/ http://line6.com/support/topic/8367-cant-install-drivers-for-pod-hd500x/) I actually have got the same problems as Miguel Marquez in the second post, but it has passed already a year and the thread is not answered. Ok, I only have 1 computer, and the problem (I think) is that all my USB ports are 3.0, but i would like to see what do you guys think, cause probably I may be wrong.

    Quick HD500X Patch (cheat)

    So my wife buys me a James Tyler Variax JTV-59 for my 60th birthday (bless her) :) . So I just had to get the HD500X and data cable to go with it right? So now I am faced with infinite options and no clue how to go about getting the tones I need for my cover band. I went through the pre-sets and there were many fun patches to be found. I also checked the website, but the names of the patches are so obscure that finding the right 'Clapton' sound was a chore. Then I had an epiphany! Truly I did! I had been using a Line6 Amplifi FX100 for a while and had a bunch of pre-sets on that, and on my phone. The cool thing about the Amplifi FX100 if you are not familiar, is you can either enter the name of the song / artist and a whole bunch of options are presented. Once you grab the patch you can then see how it was configured. Amp, Cabs, Effects are all there to tweak..... or copy to your HD500X!!!! Now, I admit, this isn't the ideal solution, but it immediately got me into the ball park for a patch that I can now fine tune to the sound I am searching for. I'm not sure if the Amplifi Remote is available to everyone, but it has saved me hours of research and configuration. I have only been using the HD and Variax for a few weeks now, and its not ready for stage work yet, but I'm getting closer a lot faster than I would have had it not been for the Amplifi utility. It would be cool if Line 6 would offer a similar utility to the HD crowd.
  17. I have a DT-50 212 and POD HD500X. For me, the best sound is to connect the guitar directly to the amp! That's it: Pure Analog Tube sound! And the DT-50 sounds great. Having said that: 1) I like the fact that only two cables are needed for them to be connected: guitar input jack and XLR for L6Link. Great. BUT once the guitar is connected to the POD, the signal is digitallized, right? It might be 24bit 48kHz, but you're losing tone (harmonics at least) for a start. Even in tunning mode? 2) What I need now is to have the DT-50 to make all the sounds. I mean, NO EMULATIONS/SIMULATIONS of any amp clean or distorted by the POD. How can I do that? So, the POD HD500X would simply be a controller of the DT-50, switching channels, from a clean to a crunch, from one voicing to another, from a rhythm sound to a solo and higher volume sound, etc. 3) After accomplish (2), then use the POD HD500X to add just simple effects as needed. Like a delay for a solo, or a wah, etc. If I can't make the (2) then I will sell the POD HD500X and buy some (analog) pedals. Thanks in advance.
  18. hi, I've just bought a DT25 and an HD500X. Both things are amazing, but I absolutely love the "Voicing IV modern high-gain" that comes with my DT25. However, I haven't been able to get the same sound when I plug the HD500X into my DT25. In other words, the amp by itself seems to sound better than the HD500X + the amp. Which is the amp that this Voicing IV on my DT25 is based on? I've been able to replicate the other 3 voicings (so, the HD500X + DT25 sounds almost identical to the DT25 sounds), but I can't find anything similar to Voicing IV (Bogner Uber pre is the most similar thing I've found, but I still prefer the DT25 original voicing). I'm using the HD500X Line6 link with an XLR AES/EBU (as recommended). All the amps in the HD500X are in "PRE" position, too. Can anybody help me, pls? Thanks

    Effect assignment in POD HD500X Edit

    Hi there, I am desperately trying to find an answer, but I don't find anything in the forum. Please excuse if there is an explanation already somewhere - So, I am using the Edit software for my HD500X, which is great. - I have a sound with three foot-switches assigned to an FX (FS1-FS3) - FS4 is still unassigned - I went to the tap "FX" and added an effect I like - Now I want this effect to be assigned to FS4 --> See image attached I cannot find any solution. If I go to "Controllers" I don't find this effect but I find the unassigned FS4... Very grateful for your help, thanks
  20. Hi guys. I'm looking at purchasing the Line6 POD HD500x. I want to combine this multi fx unit with a few analog pedals I have and possibly also my amp distortion (marshall jcm 900). I want to keep all my nice analog overdrive and distortion sounds that I use live already but I want to then add some sweet line6 delays, reverbs etc on top of this. Can I do this with the Line6 POD HD500x and will it affect my nice analog core sound that I've already got going? Cheers Jack
  21. I've been searching all day, but I cannot figure out how to switch patches via MIDI through FL Studio for the POD HD500X. I read an article (http://www.metalsucks.net/2013/03/08/rigged-within-the-ruins-guitarist-joe-cocchi/) where WithinTheRuins would trigger patch changes to their AxeFX via MIDI. What notes should be sent from an MIDI Out automation clip to trigger the change? Is there a specific port/channel that should be used? Has anyone done this through FL Studio? I have some understanding of how MIDI works, but obviously not enough. The advanced HD500X guide did not seem to document this functionality. Most of what was explained and shown online is HD500X sending MIDI out, not receiving MIDI in. I have seen people do this through ProTools and it looks pretty easy, I have had no luck trying it in FL Studio. Has anyone done this before? Thanks for any help!!

    No sound to speakers from hd500x

    I just connected my new HD500X to my two studio monitors via XLR. I am getting no sound to the speakers. I can't find my headphone adapter so I can't test if audio is going out at all. Just to confirm, I don't need any device between my 500X and my speakers right? XLR cables go directly from pedal to speaker? Is there a setting on the 500X where I have to specify XLR instead of 1/4 line? I just went through the setup guide and found nothing. I just tested, 1/4 gives sound. XLR does not. Thanks for any help

    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
  24. I've put this unit on the shelf for a while but I'm trying to work it again. My goal is to use my tube amps tone, but to have the effects needed available at my feet. Perhaps later, I'd like to have the 500x's clean tone set on a patch. One thing at a time) I tried the 4 cable method, channel 1A, removed all pedals, inactivated the "amp icon" on the display and the first thing I heard was NOT the amps tone but a clean tone. Once I reactivated the amp, I had all the possibilities of amps that are offered, but I wanted MY amp's tone. Only trying to do effects here. So I have questions... 1. Is my set up incorrect? 2. Within the Settings, I have 1 set to "Guitar", the 2nd is "Same". Is this correct? Why is there a second amp option, and how/should I remove it? 3. Is the 4cm the ideal way for me to go? 4. If I use the 4cm, how do I get my amps tone on everything except maybe 1 single preset to use for the cleans offered by the 500x? Any other tips or suggestion are appreciated. Cheers.
  25. Hi guys, I've recently bought a Pod HD500X and have installed some software to go with it (license manager, monkey, HD500X Edit, PodFarm 2), but I can't seem to license PodFarm 2. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it, and unauthorized and reauthorized my computer, but I can't get it licensed. The application opens but prompts me to buy a license for the unauthorized software (which I already have from buying my Pod). Not sure if there's something simple I've completely missed or if it's a bit more of a tedious fix, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Just want to get recording :) Thanks in advance, James
