  1. I'm having a bit of a problem dialing out excessive "sizzle" in my tones. I can't seem to get that smooth, creamy distortion. It seems that there's a bit too much treble that I can't dial out. The tone controls on the amp models don't seem to have as much effect on the tones that I would expect. I've tried direct connect, and have experimented with the combo/stack output options. Currently, I'm using it with an H&K Deluxe 20 via the 4-wire method. That helps a bit, but I can't get the sound that I'd like using the POD alone. Anyone else have this problem? If you have suggestions or if you could point me to some online information, I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks very much
  2. Hey all, I'm new to the HD500x and i feel like i'm missing something. I want to run one amp into two different cabs internally. For example: Guitar in to HD500x I Amp / \ [Cabinet One} {Cabinet Two] \ / Output of HD500x. I Front of house board. Is this possible and it's staring me in the face? What i've done so far is run two of the same amps into different cabs and mixed them accordingly however i feel there must be a better way without using that much DSP. Thanks!
  3. Got a hd500x back in 2015. after many hours... i love it. I then got a dt25. I've had some problems with the amp ... from fuses blowing, to tubes going bad... probably put in 4 sets over the last few years. When it works it is great. My latest problem with the amp is the presence (or sometimes the mid) would shoot to about 75% without me doing anything. This happens when I use the AES cable or the XLR cable. I just bought another dt25, partly to see if they would change on a new amp, and to have a backup... (or to look cool on stage by having two amps :)). The first thing I noticed is the presence (or the mid) behaves as it should. It doesn't change by itself. The second thing I noticed is it sounds much better than my old amp with the same settings. I think I may have a tube going bad again in my old amp. Ok, hope you are still reading because here are my questions: 1. The new amp labels that light up (volume, bass, treble, etc.) are yellow, not white like my old amp. Is that the way it is supposed to be or do those lights eventually get dimmer and go out? The amp sounds great and seems to work fine so it really isn't a big deal. 2, I wanted to play through both amps so I hooked them together using the l6 link. On the HD500x I set the l6:Control to Amp1:=AmpA; Amp2=AmpA. It looks like I have to set this for each patch. Is there a way to globally set this, so I don't have to go do this to all my patches? I'd also love to hear if anyone else is using this setup and what variations you guys use. Thanks.
  4. Greetings, I downloaded a bunch of decent tones from the Tone Library that other users uploaded. My thoughts were to tweak those already made settings slightly to my preference and be done. The "EVH 5150 III" tones are actually pretty good. I have a Delay, Chorus, and Flanger effect going through the effects loop chain on the signal path, and assigned buttons to activate or de-activate either of these on the top row of the HD500x. When I hit the Chorus effect, I get a bump in volume. The same happens with the Flanger, but not as much as the Chorus. I tried to change the Mix level and Tone level, and anything else I could think of to get the volume to not be boosted but it still happens. How do you fix this? Thanks,
  5. Hey guys, I bought the HD500X a couple of weeks ago and I was wondering how you use it to record your stuff? When recording, do you just run the HD500 directly to your PC/Mac using the USB connection or do you connect it to an audio interface first and then take it to your PC? In other words, do you use the HD500X as the audio interface or do you use whatever other audio interface you have as the interface in your DAW?
  6. Hi Guys, there are some XT LIVE tones I really like, I've been using them for my live sound for a while, is there a way to import/transfer them to my new HD500X? Thanks!
  7. Hi I'm almost about to make the leap from a HD500X to a helix. I downloaded the demo Helix VST in order to start the task of moving over my patches. I had one on the HD500X which made good use of 2 filter pedals - Synth - o - matic & V-tron. On the Helix there are only 3 devices in the filter category vs 17 on the HD500x. Are there any plans to release new effects bundles? I have to admit I was a bit surprised at the disparity here. Also what would be a good way of emulating the Synth - o - matic & V-tron in the Helix world.
  8. My HD500x has been a true workhorse since I purchased it in January 2014. I love it to death, and get complements on my tone all the time (even from tube purists). Lately however, I have been experiencing some technical issues with my unit and was hoping someone may be able to offer some advice. This is my primary rig. I don't use any other amps or effects and run straight to the board. The issues have been as follows... Several months back I started experiencing issues with my unit automatically switching patches on the same bank. Or, it will automatically switch to the tuner. While this has been intermittent, this is my main rig and I can't have it switching random patches in a professional environment... I've noticed the unit has become increasingly susceptible to power issues. Whether it's wonky power at a gig or running through different power strips, I've noticed some buzzing and glitching issues. The glitching for example started at a gig this past weekend. Sound from the unit would basically cut out every once in a while for 10ms or so. Really strange. Plugged the unit directly into my bass player's power conditioner and the problem subsided for the rest of the gig. Don't know if problem 2 is related to problem 1.... Plugged the unit in tonight to rehearse for gigs this weekend and noticed several of the patches had a "washed out" sound. Like the unit was adding reverb to the patches. Re-sent my patches to the unit and problem persists. Hopefully some of you guys have had similar problems and might know a quick fix. Want to eventually upgrade to the Helix but, as I am a full-time musician, it's a little out of my price range for now. Any help would be greatly appreciated! P.S. Forgot to mention this earlier. I have replaced the original power supply with an official Line 6 DC-3g purchased from Sweetwater. The original had kinks and a light cut (primarily due to me coiling the cord around the brick).
  9. Having just acquired a POD HD500X a few weeks ago, I had no luck searching the web for a printable listing of the presets that come with the "factory settings" for the POD HD500X. So, I invested a few hours and put together an Excel spreadsheet with separate TABs for each of the (6) factory set lists, and (2) blank ones for User #1 and User #2 set lists. This is a good starting point for determining what you like, what you don't like, and what you want to tweak. Of course, you can also go to Custom Tones and download other patches, and it appears that many artists are now "selling" their HD500X patches via You Tube and other web sites. Hey, $1.00 for a patch might be worth it if you are in a time crunch. Hope this helps - it is formatted to print out each set list on (2) 8-1/2 x 11 pages (i.e. 32 patches per page). Feel free to modify to suit. This was not intended as a comprehensive list of all effects that each patch utilizes - you are better served using POD HD500X Edit software for that level of detail. This is more of a quick reference that you can use to cull out the best patches to build the rig that suits your style and needs best. FYI - got a great deal on a Line 6 DT50 hybrid tube amp last week - paired up with the HD500X and a Parker Nitefly and the possibilities are endless... VY/AE Line 6 POD HD500X Preset List.xlsx
  10. VOX "Night Train" Amp for Sale. Bought it because I was afraid Pod effects would never sound decent without tubes. Rarely used. Retail price offers only! This (OC) demonstrates some of the tones and patches found with 500X, + JTV69 including down-tuned Tenor Acoustic, Sitar (Next to a real one), and Les Paul patches. If you are struggling to find a decent demonstration of the sounds out of the boxes, hopefully this is a helpful example. https://soundcloud.com/gib-berry/tribute-song https://soundcloud.com/gib-berry/chicane-narc
  11. I have searched high and low and have not found a straightforward answer. I have an HD500x on the way and a pair of Rokit 6 G3 to pair with it. The Rokit 6's have the following inputs: Balanced XLR Balanced TRS(1/4" jack) Unbalanced RCA I believe I have read that it is preferred to use the unbalanced 1/4" output on the HD500X as the XLR output signal is low. Can I connect the 1/4" unbalanced out to the 1/4" balanced TRS on the Rokits? What cable should I be using? Or should I use a 1/4" unbalanced to RCA cable? I am so confused! Thanks for the help.
  12. This does not seem to be the reboot loop problem that I heave read so much about. Everything works fine for a while, but then the patch buttons won't respond and it will "screen reboot" a couple of seconds later - the screen turns black and then shows the Line6 logo then it all comes back a few seconds later. Audio is lost while this is happening. One thing to note: the FS lights stay on! So I'm guessing that it's not a total power cycle. I can't find a pattern or a systematic way to replicate the problem. It doesn't matter if I'm hitting FS5, FS6, FS7 or FS8. The patches that are loaded at the time don't seem to matter, either. Sometimes it's fine for a while. Sometimes, it's just a matter of a couple minutes. I'll try to switch to another patch, then it freezes and does its little reboot. I have reinstalled, reflashed, and rewound everything I could think of and the problem still exists. I even purchased a new power supply. This is quite problematic during live shows. I would really like to find a fix short of ditching the board. Any ideas? Thank you! Mike
  13. Hey, I want to run my processor like AXE FX where you can put that into a studio session and program effect presets change at any downbeat you want during the song. Right now I have my HD 500x processor plugged in to my computer by USB, and Studio One has it programed as an external device. Now I need to figure out how to bring it into the session so I can place effect presets.
  14. Hi everyone, can't manage to get guitar sound with my hd500x connected via usb. I have all new drivers, pod hd500x edit and monkey. System Preferences -> Sound -> Input (selected pod hd500x) shows input sound fro guitar, when i play, but no guitar sound output (any selected device) I can get guitar sound and music or guitar pro at same time if i connect my speakers to Phones output at pod, but that's not convenient. Thank in advance if someone can help me!
  15. HELP!!! I have a Variax 700 bass with VDI cable, it does not work with HD500x pod or pod XT live bass. Connecting to the XT Live pod freezes the screen. Until the cable is unplugged, it will restart. With the HD500x pod, I connect a regular RJ45 cable and work for a while but then the HD500X pod restarts. The VDI cable works well with JTV59 variax Can anybody help me?
  16. Hi everyone, Two years ago I purchased the Metal Pack for my HD500X, and haven't used it ever since. Today I turned on my HD500X and realised that all the content of the aforementioned bundle have disappeared. I checked out thoroughly even via the HD500X Edit programme, but no way - none of the following amp models was there: Peavey® 5150® (Block logo) Bogner® Shiva Remastered Marshall® JCM800 (Model 2204) Line 6 Insane Line 6 Big Bottom Line 6 Variac'ed Plexi Line 6 Purge Line 6 Aggro Line 6 Smash Line 6 Octone I also checked the purchase log on my Line6 account, and noticed that the invoice and activation key for the Metal Pack are still there. Is there a way to activate the Metal Pack again with the old activation key or am I supposed to spend another 50$ again for the same bundle? How can I bring back the amp models that I paid for? Please help and sorry in advance if a similar topic has already been opened in this forum.
  17. My goal is to have the HD500X send midi to turn on/off channel A on the Lehle 1@3. Practical application is to turn off the virtual HD amp in an HD500X patch. This will mute the DT25 and allow the signal to pass with effects to the Lehle switch connected to an Avatar 45 Watt. Turning on the virtual HD amp will switch off Lehel channel A, muting the Avatar and allowing signal to pass to the DT25. The Lehle can receive (and send) midi on any channel and can be programmed to respond (channel on/off) to incoming midi. http://lehle.com/EN/Lehle-1at3-SGoS Need some help with the HD500X midi side...
  18. I hope someone can give me a valid fix for my dilemma. I am trying to get distortion tones such as BLS, Journey, Queen, etc without getting the horrible feedback that is occurring. I have tried reduction in treble, Mid, etc. When you strike the stings and stop suddenly you get a very annoying feedback chip. I have noise gates on settings also. Any help is appreciated.
  19. Hi all, I am considering buying a POD HD500X for live situations and there is a question for which I have not found an answer in my internet search. Does POD HD500/HD500X have any kind of snapshot mode like the Helix? I would like to change between 2 very different sounds without changing the preset to avoid the typical gap in the sound. If it does not have this mode, how many CC's (e.g. turn ON/OFF individual effects, change from A/B chain, etc) it can send at once (with just one button)? Thank you very much in advance! :)
  20. Hi! I'm from the Philippines and the gigging scenario is usually like this. Most of the time clubs here would have a decently powered guitar amp (50-100w) but not all clubs mike the amps so it can sit well in the mix with the vocals, drums, and bass. I use an HD500x. To get more consistent sound both on stage and at the audience I was thinking of sending the PL outs to the onstage guitar amp's FX return, and the XLR outs to the PA. The problem I have though is that if I set up my patches with any of the cab sims on, the FOH sound may be good, but the stage sound from the amp would be usually muddy. If I set the output mode to Combo Power amp, I know I would get a good sound on stage but I fear that I would have that harsh DI no cab sim sound coming out of the PA. So I guess my questions boil down to the following: 1. Do the XLR outs have some sort of "always on" compensation / speaker sim even if the active patch has the cab sim turned off? 2. If not, then I would have to turn on cab sim so that the HD500x's XLR PA feed would sound right, correct? How do I now make the stage amp sound good in this set up since the cab sim already colors the sound? Thank you MH
  21. Good day. I recently picked up a used hd500x. When I load hd500x edit, it loads the old users setlist named Gary. I refreshed the memory and that has erased all of his tones out of the setlist, but the setlist names "Gary" still remains. I even deleted the file for it and renamed it something else and it still comes up as Gary. How in the world do i make this go away ? Thanks in advance
  22. Hi All I currently play a JTV59 amongst other guitars through a Zoom G5 into a Mesa Nomad 45 with a programmable EQ in the FX loop. I'm looking at getting rid of the EQ and the Zoom in favour of running a HD500X using the four cable method so I get the EQ after the pre-amp when I need it. I'm in a covers band and also sing BV and some lead. What I am wondering is if the below is possible. It's not a big deal if not, just curious. With the JTV can I set up some patches that will go from guitar to POD, then to the Mesa pre-amp, back to the POD and then out through the power amp (4 cables) whilst also having some Variax acoustic patches that go from guitar to POD then out to a PA mixer? I don't think I want acoustic patches to go to the Mesa power amp and then out through the Mesa speaker as it would sound odd. If the above is possible, can I add one more level of complexity? Can I pug my mic into the POD and have that running through the POD basically unaffected to the mixer for most songs but be able to put delays and harmonies etc on the vocal signal for some songs? Essentially can I split the Variax signal so that sometimes it goes to amp and sometimes to PA? Whilst also having a mic plugged in that also goes to PA? In case you are wondering why I'd want to do this, we regularly gig pinball wizard which needs the acoustic and electric sounds. It would be great to have the switching running from just a foot tap on one unit instead of hitting an A/B box and the Variax button on the guitar simultaneously like I do at present. We are also putting Queen's 'Don't stop me now' in the set with it's 5 part harmonies. I know there are plenty of vocal processors out there - just wondering if this is all do-able from one box rather than having two? Thanks
  23. 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.
  24. I know this topic has been posted ad infinitum for years though I've never really seen it answered in a way that was laid out like a flowchart. I have read tons of forum posts for years from both camps. "The HD500X will sound exactly the amp once you get the settings correct" or "there is no correct use yours ears as a guide" and then "the DT sounds much better and no matter what I do the HD500X does not sound like the amp." I've tried so many variations of things to try and get the sounds identical, but it's a no go. I'm wondering if there is a way I can ab the DT50 alone with the HD500X line 6 link connected. Channel A set to line HD500x and channel B amp alone. This way I can ab them in a split second through the same setup with out having to have 2 DT heads and cabinets. When I use the line 6 link now and set a no amp patch to channel B it does not sound like the amp, but more like the HD500x. I did the mute channel B in the mixer thing and played around with infinite variations. I know that it has been mentioned before that if you want to use channel B "you're just not getting the DT-POD interaction". I just want to AB them in a split second so I can tweak them to sound the same. If too much time elapses between using the line 6 link and direct the moment is gone. Can someone provide exact settings as far as what the actual amp topologies from the DT correspond with the HD500x. I don't just mean IV is a Treadplate or Rectifier. I mean specifics like to get the identical sound from the HD500x line 6 link to the DT you need to do this choose this model with this cabinet emulation and this mic setting, change these 3 things in the global settings, change this in the mixer section etc and so on and so on. What I've seen so far is people mentioning pre amp models vs full models etc regular mode vs lvm etc, but nothing is clear cut. Answers are all over the place. Videos are few and far between . I understand the difference in an amp when pushing the power section vs pushing the pre amp, but the there is something severely missing in the equation.I saw a video awhile back where the poster writes it's identical, but I could easily hear the compression difference even through youtube on a laptop. I can't understand why after all these years there has not been a single concise clear do this do that thing. I build tube amps and I can tell you that if I change a resistor or capacitor value it will sound exactly like this or that every single time. It might be a lot to ask, but I'm sure it would be appreciated by many including myself.
  25. So i am use to podfarm 2.5 but its totally different. What i would like to know is how to use the hd500x the best way when using headphones. I dont own any halfstscks or 2x12's, only a 75w spider 4, so i cant use L/R stereo out. I keep hearing all these amazing tones (unmixed) but cant seem to reproduce them. And most patches are for big amps and dont sound the same. If any one can guide me in how to create great tones using headphones i would greatly appreciate it. For guitars i use a epiphone SG custom prophecy and a ibanez JEM77P-BFP. I also have a 10 band eq i could use as a chain with the pod.
