  1. Hey everyone, I've had my POD HD500X for just over a year now, and until now, I've been really happy with it. The problem is, over the last week or so all my clean and distorted, direct/studio AND straight-to-amp patches all have a horrible fizzy sound to them. It sounds like digital clipping, but I've gain-staged all my patches well and set up my inputs and outputs how they're supposed to be. I just updated the latest Firmware as of today (The one that fixed the tuner problem), but there is still no change. Has this happened to anyone else and if so, did you manage to get it fixed? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello everyone I think I finally found a rig that can do pretty much anything I need for my one man show. I'm very excited because it's so friggin convenient and it does sounds good. I still have a few quirks to iron out so hope that with this thread you can help me and a few others have a 100% Dream Rig system. 1. I'm going out of my HD500x via L6 to the L2T XLR out of the L2T to my Bose L1M2B2 Tonematch small console. Doing in it this way I'm getting the exact same sound of the L2T is getting and switching from acoustic to electric presets. I'm getting a Hum on the Bose from the L2T XLR that I need to get rid of ASAP Any ideas how to do this correctly? 2. I can also go XLR out of the HD500x to the Bose Tonematch console but the signal level drops BIG time and the hum goes down too. Still getting the L2T sounding great via the L6 cable and all the switching from acoustic to electric just fine. 3. Is there a better way in doing this and to control the volume on the L2T? 4. I'm getting great tone even direct from the HD500x to the Bose T1 console and I'm all about convenience and be as lightweight as possible Are any of you with me on this?… plus I can save myself some $$$ returning the L2T and have one less box to carry. The convenience of having a dedicated GTR monitor is great too I'm just asking because from another point of view I think is good to have all the sounds coming out of one source in this case the Bose L1M2B2 system. 5. Is there a way I can control the volume of the L2T other than the Master knob on the HD500x? Just want to know all the options available to have full control of the system and don't be slaved to knobs all over. 6. It would be great if you can explain your signal flow, system setup [ipads…etc…] Pictures or videos can make a big difference explaining things so I would appreciate if you guys can do that. thanks a lot for your help regards, Charles
  3. My setup: JTV59 > VDI > HD500 > L6 LINK > DT25 combo I have had all components for some time now but not always using all together so the DT25 has not been heavily used or gigged much at all. I have not noticed this before - so thought I would ask on the forum just for a sanity check - it may be normal and I have just not noticed it before. Now - whenever I pick an HD500 pre amp model that uses the DT25 in mode III, CLASS A, PENTODE, such as the AC15 or AC30 models - the unit produces a much louder hum and background hiss than in any of the other combinations or with models that you may think would be noisier such as the Marshall models. This is with the DRIVE level set well below 50% for a clean sound. I tried placing a noise gate at the beginning and end of my chain with aggressive settings on the HD500 and it made no difference. Even tried turning the MASTER down on the HD500 and no difference. Lovely loud hum and background hiss. Switch to other configurations and it's much much quieter. So - is this normal? Or is my DT25 or my dream rig set up playing up? Thanks in advance for responses to my sanity check! :)
  4. Hello, and thanks for taking the time to read this. While recording with my POD HD500, I have noticed an issue with some kind of digital static. It's usually not a big deal when I am playing, but when I allow my guitar to ring out (typically at the end of a song), I begin to notice an strange static coming out from behind the guitars. This issue is made worse if I double track or add additional guitar tracks, as it is multiplying the noise. I'm not very audio-tech savvy, so I was hoping someone could help me locate (and possibly eliminate) the source of this noise. My guitar uses EMGX pickups. When I turn on the tuner, I get a clean, smooth DI tone with no noise whatsoever (unless I move my guitar's pickups within inches of the various electronics in my studio), making me think I should rule out the pickups. Additionally, changing cables has no effect. I've tried multiple lengths from Fender to generic, so I am also thinking I should rule out the cables. The POD HD500 makes a constant white noise when I have it on certain patches. When I use my Treadplate patch (Drive 64%, Vol 100%, no pedals, just the amp), there is constant noise whether or not I have anything plugged into the POD. Is this normal? The noise is different if I choose different amps (being most obvious on Uber, Treadplate, F-Ball and Elektrik), making me believe this is just how the amps act in real life and are thus emulated, so I think this can be ruled out. I thought maybe it was a ground loop hum, so I bought a HumX, but plugging various things into it (PC, POD, power strip) has absolutely no effect. Hopefully I can rule this out, return it, and get my money back. I've tried using noise gates, but as long as the guitar is ringing out, the static is there. It has a very digital sound, and I suspect it might be coming from my computer. If turn my guitar's volume down, I get the amp noise I was talking about earlier, but as I turn the volume up (strings muted of course), it's like I'm dialing in this digital static. Sorry for the TL;DR. My main goal here is finding out what is normal/abnormal and what I can fix (and if I can return my HumX... that thing was $60!) Thanks for the help. I'll be happy to upload some examples if they are needed.
  5. I'm new to this forum and I hope someone can help. So I'm getting a static/buzz sound when I record with my pod hd pro in GarageBand and Logic. I'm connected via USB and when I physically lay down a guitar track it sounds fine. But when I play the track back there's a static/buzz sound. This happens in both GarageBand and Logic Pro. I've done lots of recording before with the line 6 ux8 and have had no issues with either program. Is there's a problem with my pod? Some help would be much appreciated. Thx
  6. good evening. as in object: could somebody tell surely what's the impedance at POD XT headphones plug? i have a 32 Ohms set and the sound quality is horrible, so I'd need to build an impedance corrector cable and to know precise values to do that. thanx, bye
  7. My DT-25 suddenly started humming loudly in triode mode. The penthode mode is still as quiet as ever. Nothing really influences the hum. Even if I turn the master down completely it hums just the same. What could be causing this?
  8. When I clic on Hum Reducer/Learn my Macbook shuts down completely and a notice appears telling me I have to reboot my computer. Can anyone tell me what's going on or how I can resolve this, please?
  9. I have the Spider IV 30 -- the old model, with just four presets. When I change from one preset channel to another, on some channels I get hum/buzz/static, which disappears when I fiddle with the channel volume/drive knobs. Is this just one of those things that everyone experiences or can I adjust something to eliminate/minimize that? I also noticed that the volume differs from preset channel to channel -- goes way up or down as I switch. Any way to standardize the volume so that it remains the same as I change channels?
  10. I helped a school to purchase 6 XD-V55L units. Five of them check out great, with good, clear sound. The 6th unit sends a hum, along with the signal from the mic. I tried it with different mics and different receivers. Any ideas? Thanks, Roy
  11. I had an odd issue last weekend with one of my V70 belt-pack systems. I was running three of them plus my new V75 hand-held which I'd just used to update the firmware in all the V70 systems. All in RF1 mode. This particular system had the L6 lav mic attached (I normally use headsets but this particular performer insisted on a tieclip). The system was used on someone else earlier in the show and performed perfectly, but once fitted to this performer, the problem hit. I PFL'ed him just before he went out on stage and all I heard was a loud mains-type hum with some harmonics and a slightly digital quality to it. No wanted audio at all; just this unvarying buzzing. I think the level was lighting up just the bottom segment of the receiver meter. It was far too late at this point to swap anything out but as he projected well, he made it through his act without the mic. As it was a somewhat hectic show followed by a rapid get-out, I didn't have the time to go through any useful troubleshooting to narrow down what the problem might have been; unhelpful I know. I set up the equipment again back at base and couldn't make it misbehave in any way no matter what I did. My best guess was a dodgy connection between mic & belt-pack but no amount of cable flexing and connector wiggling and loosening would produce any issues. The venue was at the bottom of a cliff on the seafront where even mobile phone signals barely made an appearance; with no venue WiFi either, it was the quietest RF environment I've ever worked in. The other systems all worked perfectly throughout; this one was also fine up until that one act. My question therefore (and I know it's a bit of a stab in the dark) has anyone experienced anything like this or can anyone suggest a possible cause?
  12. Q: How can I reduce hum/noise/feedback when playing? -Single coils pickups used with higher gain settings will often cause noise. Try combining two pickups via the pick-up selector or trying a different guitar to see if the situation is the same. Make sure all the input and output jacks are tight. Check the instrument with different pickup settings to make sure it is not a bad pickup connection. -Higher gain settings tend to be the cause of many noise and feedback issues, try to dial the gain back on your amp a bit. Remember that heavy-rock bands often triple track (or more) when recording to create a thicker sound. -Turn your volume knob off when you are not playing (even during stops in a song when possible). -Turn off other volume controls not being used (i.e. volume trim pots) -Use the highest quality cables you can afford, and the shortest distance you can live with. RF can create many noises that can be eliminated with well shielded cables. -Experiment with distance and position between your guitar and amplifier/recording rig. - Avoid florescent lighting when possible. - Make sure that your instrument/rig is plugged into the same power source as the rest of your gear/band/PA system (to avoid ground loops). - User a power conditioner/regulator to filter RF and keep the voltage constant. - Experiment with the noise gate feature on your Line 6 unit or use an external noise gate. Q: I hear a "popping" sound when I turn my amp on, is this normal? How do I reduce the popping sound I hear when I turn my amp on? A: The popping sound is normal as it is a ramp of up the switch mode power supply. You can lessen the effect by: i) not having the input plugged in (disengaging the preamp section). ii) having the master volume turned all the way down (lowering the power amp output).
