  1. i have the pod x3 live and plan on buying a pod hd 500x and wanted to know if it can do the same thing the digitech whammy dt can do specifically the down and up tuning feature and can it track as good as the whammy because i read on a different forum that its not good. im wondering if they fixed it as well.
  2. I recently upgraded to the POD HD500x from the HD500 and uploaded my old tones from the 500 to the 500x by changing the .extension. It worked great except I've noticed that my tone sounds thinner and brighter on the HD500x. Also, it seems like the output volume is quieter while using headphones than it was on the 500. Any Ideas?
  3. Hello all, I recently bought the StageSource L2m, and loving all the neat things I can do with it through my Pod HD500X. However, I came across a problem the other day that I have been trying to fix and researching relentlessly. When I connect my iPod via CD/MP3 input > POD > L2m via L6 Link, I get no signal coming from my L2m (just guitar signal when plugged in). I've updated my POD, rummaged through settings, tried turning the L2m from Mono to Stereo, different aux cables, I also tried plugging in my iPod through the aux 1/4 jack on the POD and nothing. The only thing that worked is when I plugged my POD via regular line in. The whole reason I really wanted the StageSource was to be able to utilise the L6 Link capabilities with my POD and it is a bit frustrating that I am unable to with a simple connected. Am I doing anything wrong? Is there a reason there is no signal? Also I know I could connect my iPod directly into the L2m via L/R input but I've done everything through my POD since day one. Any suggestions? Thanks :)
  4. Hi, Has anyone try it combination on the topic field ? Reason i am asking cause i am planning to buy ua-55. I am building my home studio and thinking is it a good idea to connect pod hd500x via spdif to UA-55 is there any reason i shouldt not use SPDIF ? Main purpose is to get better sound quality to record guitars...
  5. I am a long time Line 6 user but just recently have ventured into the world of the 500X (hopefully replacing my aging Xt soon). I recall seeing a video a while back where someone was demoing a feature where the 'volume' pedal was actually lowering the volume as you pressed it towards the toe position. Granted, a limited use case but clever if the thing you turn on with the toe switch doesn't want full volume. Unfortunately, I don't believe they said HOW they managed that and I can no longer find the video, has anyone managed this by chance? Second question - with a 2nd expression pedal connected, can things be setup such that you can still use the on-board pedal for switched and unswitched use? If it was volume and wah, the volume transfers to the 2nd pedal and there seems no use for the unswitched on-board.
  6. I watched Lincoln Brewster play live. Just his HD500 into a mixer/PA. It sounds amazing: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BkT4tLiH32M He made his HD500 patches available but on the 500x it sounds like caca: http://www.lincolnbrewster.com/podpatches/Lincoln_Brewster_Main_2012.h5e.zip http://www.lincolnbrewster.com/podpatches/Lincoln_Brewster_Swell_2012.h5e.zip Does anybody have great/similar sounding patches made specifically to have your HD500x go straight into a mixer/PA? I'm looking for a nice clean, rhythm crunch and lead distortion patches but everything I've tried so far sounds horrible... My second option was to plug my HD500x into my Carvin V3 half stack 100W tube amp. Use the Pod to do the Midi channel switching via 4CM, as I'd assign each patch to a channel at my amp (but I have no clue how to do that on the Pod). I'd be willing to even pay someone to create 3 basic patches for me, so the effects are done properly before and after the pre-amp: • A true bypass assigned to my Carvin's channel 3 with reverb, a little compression, and basic delay (on/off) option only for clean rhythm and picking. • A reverb, sustain + delay quarter note tap tempo, 8th note tap tempo, and .8th tap tempo; that I'd assign to my crunch channel 2 for swells and ambient stuff. If you can't have 3 on/off delay here, then I'd move the .8th into clean channel 3 above. • A reverb, compression + delay patch I'd assign to my (distortion) channel 1 for lead solo and hard rhythm + a pod amp modeler or overdrive pedal to add some distortion oomph I've heard and seen people who've figured out a way to do it on YouTube. But they just play and don't share... It's very frustrating since Line6 manuals talk about everything except what we want done ha ha ha...
  7. Hello everyone. I had to travel to another city for a gig, I took my POD HD500X with me and unfortunately it fell to the ground. The corner hit the ground and the screen is broken, it's driving me crazy. Do you know what kind of lcd screen the POD HD500X uses and where can I buy it? (preferably online) Thank you in advance. Ps. Excuse my english.
  8. Hello everyone, before getting the POD HD500x, I'd use the threadplate model on my old POD 2.0 with a bypassed cab to achieve a rather harsh, metallic tone which is sort of my "signature" rhythm guitar sound. You can listen to here: https://soundcloud.com/mischjok/test/s-GZmNm I basically run the output of a patch that uses a mesa boogie simulation into a channel in cubase where I load an IR of a Mesa Cab. Basically I have two cabs going on right now. The second patch which you hear on that recording is something that sounds close. It's basically me trying to emulate the sound heard at the beginning of John Petrucci's tune "Damage Control". You'll notice how the sound in "damage control" lacks punch and that metallic edge. IS there any way to add it artificially? I simply want to be less dependant on Cubase and my IR-host (voxengo boogex) and have everything happen within the POD. I'd be glad to provide patches to anyone willing to provide assistance. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
  9. It has come to my attention that certain amp simulations that were available on previous versions of the POD aren't available on the POD HD500x. I'd like to know why that is. In my opinion, metal players could appreciate the inclusion of those two models...
  10. I bought the DT25 head a few days ago, for the sole purpose of playing in church where I intended to use the Cabinet Simulated Output (Direct Out) straight to the PA. We're going to an In-Ear Monitor system and want to eliminate all speaker amps from the stage. I thought the DT25 would be perfect since it's still a FULL TUBE amp with no speakers that I can control from my POD HD500X. However after connecting via the POD via the L6 link and then the Direct Out to a recording audio interface (Presonus Firepod), I realized the Direct Out is only usable in "Low Volume Mode." Come to find out when using this configuration I'm only using the amp Pre-Amp section and not the power section of the amp. So my question is am I really gaining anything by using the DT25? I was just plugging my POD HD 500X straight into the PA and getting decent sounds. I thought getting the DT25 would step it up a notch, but if I'm not using the Power Section of the amp I don't know if I'm really gaining anything. Anyone that can chime in would be helpful!! Thanks
  11. So I'm wondering if this is normal. I have a JTV 89f, Pod HD500x, into a DT 25 head. My problem happens power everything up. If I have the JTV plugged in using the Variax cable when I power up then try and change tones on the Pod Via footswitch the Pod freezes up and goes to the line 6 reboot screen. Once it reboots the tones switch correctly but I'm not sure if everything sounds quite right but that could be my ears just assuming something's off because of the reboot. Now if I turn everything on without plugging in the JTV first everything works great. It's not that big of a deal other than having to unplug my guitar when I'm done. I'm just hoping that it's not a symptom of another problem. For a long time I thought that something was wrong with the Pod until I got into a kick of playing my Les Paul instead of my JTV for awhile and noticed the issue was gone. Anyway I was just wondering if anyone has had the same issue or if this is just the order it's supposed to power up my rig. I know that your supposed to power things up in a certain order according to some of the other forums but is plugging in your JTV part of that order? Thanks in advance.
  12. Just got my pod hd500x and I realised that when I play open on the low B of my bass (through any amp mod) the pod plays a note slightly lower than what it's meant to then after a few moments slides up to the right note. I played my bass just through a few EQ's on the pod and they picked it up fine. Also the tuner doesn't pick up the open B string so I have to tune on the octave. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. I am not able to record a simple guitar sound of my HD500X to Protools 11 via the S/PDIF input of the Firewire 1814. The firewire 1814 doesn't get any synced signal! I connected the Line-6 HD500X to the firewire 1814 input (breakout cable connector, MIDI–S/PDIF–WordClock-input) via coaxial cable (3m, 75 Ohms). The S/PDIF out (HD500X) is well configured. The device screen shows: 1. S/PDIF: matches Outputs 2. Sample rate: 44,1 kHz 3. Level: +0 dB 4. Input-Recording: 1-2 Main Out The Line-6 software control panel (Audio-Midi-Devices 3.61) shows the following Asio settings: 1. Default Buffer Size: 256 2. Default Bit Depth: 24. The Firewire sound device is configured via the M-Audio software-control-panel: 1. sample rate: 44100 Hz 2. Asio buffer size: 256 samples 3. Input: spdif 4. Output: spdif 5. Input port: coaxial 6. Sync source: external - digital When I change the Sync source from internal to "external-digital" then the green message "Locked" changes in to red blinking message: "Unlocked" (Protools not yet launched)! Additional Informations: PC- Windows 7 Home Premium; Firewall Antivirus: deactivated; Driver: Pod HD500X: Driver: Firewire 1814: Protools version: 11.2.1 Can anybody help me?
  14. I've been a Variax Acoustic 700 user for several years, but I'm always looking for ways to improve the tone and overall sound. I recently upgraded to the HD500X and I'm contemplating the purchase of the L2T. Sort of a Dream Rig, sans the James Tyler... Anyhow, from what I've read the L2T will be a great addition. My question is can it double as a vocal monitor effectively? Obviously with the on board mixer it's capable of taking a line level input from the mixer, but am I expecting too much of the unit? I'd like to be able to run both the Variax Acoustic and a Strat/Tele/PRS through the HD500x, get great sound AND monitor vocals. If so, what would be the best set up? Any insight here would be appreciated! Thanks.
  15. Hey All! Just got a new POD HD500X and I'm really eager to use it as much as possible but I have a few questions before I do. Before the POD HD500X all I had was a few pedals in front of my Peavey 15 watt combo amp, for home use or small gig use it was fine as I would mic it and get a decent sound. Now, when I'm at home I'd like to plug it in but when I put it through my little practice amp it sounds horrible as the amp has presets that you can only modify not take off. So, my question is for home use, small gigs, and big live use, what would be the best way and most affordable way to get the sound out of the POD? Thanks!
  16. Hi, first of all, my english sucks, so im gonna try to do my best Its possible to change the amp value of the drive with a footswitch on the pod hd500x ? i've search all over the internet and all i've got is turn on and off effects and amps, but not how to change this. Please Help
  17. I was just wondering if anyone had a guess on how long the HD500X will remain the current product. I purchased an HD500 only to have the 500X be released a few months later. I like many of the upgrades in the 500X, but wonder if I buy it now if another new version or updated line of floor PODs will be released soon. I noticed that the price on the 500X has been discounted recently (about $100.00) at many online retailers. Is this because Line 6 is about to release a new product to replace the 500X?
  18. Hello all. I just picked up a Pod HD500X about a week ago with the intentions of using it mostly for recording. I know that using the HD500X as an interface is a popular setup and many people have success with it. I however am not having much success at the moment. My setup is as follows: Pod HD500X, LTD 307-w EMG active pickups, Two KRK Rokit 5s, Logic Pro X, Macbook Pro 13" with trs-xlr cables from the UNBALANCED OUTPUTS on the Pod HD500X to my KRK monitors. I have recently been told that using balanced cables from unbalanced outputs doesn't yield me any of the benefits of balanced connections. Needless to say, I am still very new to this. My issues I'm having are related to distortion and hollow, tinny sound through my monitors as I try to increase levels to get the strongest levels without clipping. The distortion is also seemingly increased by selecting my INPUT MONITORING option on Logic Pro X. It is as if something between my Pod and my Mac is off. My waveforms at varying volume levels are all very "peaky" and undefined. Clearly there is an output/level issue that I am overlooking but I can't figure it out. Any help with this matter would be fantastic!
  19. I recently started recording vocals with my POD, and I want to turn the XLR outputs (connected to my studio monitors) off while I am recording so that I don't get any bleed into the mic. I want the headphone output to remain on so I can monitor with headphones while recording, Is this possible, or can someone recommend some kind of external controller that will allow me to do this? Thanks, Tyler
  20. Please tell me if there's wireless Variax cable transceiver to connect my JTV-59 and HD500X. If that's not happening, how far can I go with a ethercon Cat5E or 6 ? Thx, Mik
  21. I've been looking around at the line 6 pod HD500x and the DT25. I really like the idea of going totally wireless so I was wondering if you could use a Relay G series unit in the place of a Line 6 link cable. Is this even possible? [this is my first post, so go easy on me] :) Ben

    Wet Dry Rig

    Hy guys, and happy 2014! I am stuck into the quest of my graal tone in the wet dry rig thing... What i am trying to do is sending a line to my real amp and cab (with compressor, distortion no amp Maybe a slapback delay) doing my dry sound, and a separate line to my L3t with amp simulation and modulation effects, making my wet sound. I have tried with an fx loop block mix to 0 but this way i send a distorted sound to my L3t and i don't want it. I have tried with a dual path but i cannot have two separate outs... They always sum... Help needed!!!
  23. So I have a line 6 pod HD500X and I have a Line 6 Spider 3 75 Watt amp. How do I connect my amp to the pod to use the Pods sounds and effects through my amp?? Where exactly do I plug the amp cords in etc?! Posted a few pics of my setup. Please no rude comments.
  24. just bought new pod hd 500x, loaded tone monkey, downloaded newest drivers for mac's, downloaded tone edit. pod sync was fine, and I'm able to edit tones. After I'm on for a bit, tone edit crashes. I can reopen tone edit, and then re-sync the hd, but I would Love to fix the problem. Anyone having the same issue? Thanx!
  25. Hello all! We just posted a new video for the JTV89F and POD HD500X on the GearTunes site and you're invited to come on by - it's up on both of the following pages via the red "Video" tab.
