  1. I am also using a fbv express pedal board. I am trying to figure out how I can go from a patch with a delay to a (lets say) a distortion with the delay ringing out and not just cutting off when I switch patches. Can this be done? Please help. Thanks.
  2. Hello all, I have a POD 2.0 running firmware v2.2 and controlling it with an an original Line 6 Floorboard: I am trying to map my POD 2.0 Floorboard controls so that I can control parameters in Guitar Rig Pro 5. I have seen videos and posts on users using the newer Line 6 floorboard models with Guitar Rig Pro but I have no clue on how to do this with the original POD 2.0 Floorboard. I have my MIDI INs and OUTs connected correctly and Ableton is showing that I am transmitting MIDI signals from my Floorboard. However, I cannot seem to find the right software to manually map the POD 2.0 MIDI CC#'s so that Guitar Rig Pro 5 can see them. For instance, when I move my volume pedal on my Line 6 Floorboard, I would like it to control a knob in Guitar Rig Pro 5. I have installed Line 6 Edit and Line 6 Monkey which I don't think helped my situation. Has anyone done anything similar with the original Line 6 Floorboard? With the amount of POD 2.0's still out there, I'm sure someone has tried to connect their gear with Guitar Rig Pro or Amplitube? Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
  3. Hi is it possible to control the Flextone 3 presets with a Pod Pro connect via MIDI? I have those 2 and I have also the Line 6 floorboard that controles the pod pro, but for my flextone 3 I don't have any FBV to control the flex tone 3 and I don't want to have 2 big floorboards on the floor when I'm playing, what I want is just to control all with the line 6 floorboard, Is it possible? Thanks Jorge
  4. Greetings, I stopped getting an input signal on my PODxt Pro. I tried various guitar cables, and I reinstalled the 3.02 firmware from the Line 6 Monkey. Nothing else is plugged into the unit other than the AC cable and the input cable. It's clearly not a setting; I can't even get a signal to use the tuner. Seems like a hardware issue, but here's how I've troubleshot this so far; perhaps I've missed something obvious along the way. First of all, it would seem that after some searching, that this issue is not unique to me. Also, for what it's worth, I had (for some reason) version 1.14 of the USB firmware on the unit, despite the fact that the current version was listed as 1.12 in the Monkey. Thinking that this might be the problem, I tried restoring the current version of the USB firmware back to version 1.12, so that they matched. No dice. Repeated power cycles do nothing, and the line level input on the back isn't getting any input signal either. Sending a clean guitar signal through USB doesn't work either, so it obviously isn't getting any signal at the front end. The signal light on the front remains perpetually dark. I have all model packs installed, and the unit has been sitting in a climate controlled rack in a studio, so it is in mint condition. I am at a loss, and am not sure what to do, as I rely on this in my studio. Another follow-up question... Since I rolled back the USB firmware to 1.12, there doesn't now seem to be a way to get it back to 1.14. Most reports I see say that 1.14 is the latest version of the USB firmware, yet the Line 6 Monkey is telling me that 1.12 is the latest. Was there an issue discovered with version 1.14 of the USB firmware such that it was removed from the update servers? I also ran the entire update process again from another computer with a different USB cable. Same deal. Another thing to note is that while the device is fully recognized through the OS, and the MIDI functionality seems to be fine, the audio interface element of the PODxt Pro is not functioning properly. The device is recognized in the Sound System Preference (and the Audio/MIDI Setup) but sound will not come out of it for regular computer sound output (like iTunes, for example.) In addition to this, I just noticed a slight but audible buzzing/hum sound inconsistently coming from the unit, which sounds similar to an alternating current's 60 Hz hum sometimes caused by EMI or a ground loop. I've never noticed this until right now. A power cycle of the unit lessened it to some degree, but it's still there faintly, which obviously causes further concern. Has anyone else with a PODxt Pro experienced anything like this? I'm sure the answer is what I don't want to hear: that I'll need to take it to a service center. Thanks in advance, Jeff
  5. I have a POD HD Pro and recently acquired an ADA MP-1 preamp,. I have the MP1 in the FX loop of the Pod, and it's working quite well. I just ordered a midi cable. The ADA is a Midi preamp. Is it possible to set up MIDI to change the ADA preset based on my pod patches? So pod patch 1A the ADA is on preset 1, Pod patch 1b the ADa is on preset 2, etc? Would love some tips on how to do this if possible, but i'll also take "it's possible, read the manual" if anyone knows it can be done - thanks!
  6. Hi guys, I recently bought a Pod Hd Pro rack off of a friend and I'm running this through a ART SLA-1 Power amp (100watts@8ohms) and into an Avatar 8ohm cab (120 watts) with celestian V30s. I was practicing with some guys the other day, and for some reason, I have to crank the master AND channel volume all the way to the max to even hear it at a decent volume compared to everyone else(Drummer+6505 guitarist). Are there any settings I should be changing on the pod pro so that it is used for live amp use? or perhaps maybe the power amp is just not that strong?..
  7. I'm a french user of the Diezel Herbert, I recently bought it and doesn't have any foot controler yet. I have a rack configuration and I would like to add a multi-effect rack such as the POD HD PRO. Can you tell me if is it possible to control it with the Columbus and save different tones ? Using a simple midi cable to connect them. I ask the question because some guitarists who use the POD seem to meet some problems when they want to connect it to a midi controller which is different from a Line 6 model (FBV,etc..) Thank you very much.
  8. The current version of the Variax Workbench HD software requires the usage of the Variax Workbench Interface that comes with the James Tyler Variax guitars. Usage of other VDI equipped hardware such as the POD HD500, HD500x and the HD Pro are not supported as this is a known issue with the Variax Workbench HD software and we hope to address this in a future update. Deutsch: Variax Workbench Verbindungskompatibilität: Die derzetige Version der Variax Workbench HD Software benötigt die Variax Workbench Schnittstelle, die bei James Tyler Variax Gitarren mitgeleifert wird. Die Benutzung anderer VDI (Variax Digital Interface) Ausrüstung, wie das POD HD500, HD500x und das HD Pro ist nicht unterstützt. Dies ist ein bekannter Fehler der Variax Workbench Software und wir hoffen, dass wir dieses in zukünftigen Updates lösen können. Français: Compatibilité des connexions avec Variax Workbench: La version courante du logiciel Variax Workbench HD a besoin du interface Variax Workbench, qui est fourni avec les guitares James Tyler Variax. L'utilisation d'autres appareils VDI (Variax Digital Interface), comme le POD HD500, le HD500x et le HD Pro n'est pas soutenue. Ceci est un erreur du logiciel Variax Workbench connu et nous espérons que nous pouvons resoudre ce porblème avec les mises à jours suivantes.
  9. Hey guys, Years ago I bought a brand new X3 Pro which came with pod farm and all of it's expansion packs for free. I've been running it on an iMac for ages and it's all been working fine until recently. I've bought a MacBook Pro and want to use pod farm with logic while on the go. I was just wondering if it's possible to get the expansion packs working somehow without having to carry my X3 Pro around with me and connect it every time I wish to use them? Thanks a lot for your time!
  10. Im rewriting this post because im still having problems with my tone. I've gone through all the suggestions and nothings changed. The outputs is Studio/Direct and im using a low gain yet im still getting horrible fuzz over the top, ruining any clarity that was there. Here's a raw clip of the tone im getting: This particular clip was recorded with a cheap guitar but i have the same problem with any guitar i use! If anyone can tell me why my tone is coming out at such bad quality i'd be extremely grateful!
  11. This is my first time on any forum so i have no idea what im doing so dont be patronising... I have the Pod HD Pro in my studio but it sounds terrible? I can make a nice tone that im happy with but it has a horrible fuzz, clipping/distorted sound on top of it, which is completely ruining the tone! Imagine listen to a song that would sound great as WAV or 320kbs... but is coming out sounding like 128kbs. (that horrid, weak quailty) The tone has lost all depth and clarity and its really starting to annoy me as my band are mid way through recording our EP but the more we focus on the guitar the more the bad quality stands out! Nothing is actually clipping though, like the gain on the amp is pretty low, low master volume, its not clipping in the compressor or the DAW? Seriously need help to find out whats wrong. Its been like this since i got it and im losing faith in line 6. If anyone has experienced this and overcome it please tell me how? x
  12. Hello ya'll, I recently purchased a POD Pro on ebay and when it arrived it wouldn't power on(it still hasn't). The seller is a store with 100% positive feedback on ebay, so when they described the POD as "working perfectly" I believe them. I know for a fact that it had a rough journey here because the box was pretty darn bruised and beaten. Can any one of you tell me what might be wrong with it?
  13. So, when is it available...?

A: Twelve months from the date of purchase. Authorized Line 6 Service Centers, will need you to provide a copy of the purchase receipt to validate date for warranty processing. Please be sure to have those materials ready, should you need to get your unit serviced under warranty. Q: How do I perform a Factory Reset on my POD HD Device? A: A factory reset on any POD HD Device is performed by re-installing the Flash Memory on the POD HD using the Line 6 Monkey utility. Please ensure to connect the POD HD Device to a PC or Mac computer via USB 2.0 ports. Please ensure to disconnect all unnecessary USB devices and to test all of the computer's USB ports if you encounter connection problems. You can view a video tutorial on how to re-install the flash memory of the POD HD here: [Video Tutorial] How to Reset the POD HD Series by updating or reinstalling the Flash Memory Q: How do I access the global settings screen on my POD HD Device? A: Press and hold the VIEW button to the left of the LCD screen on the to enter the SETUP pages of the POD. Press the Left and Right arrow buttons on the 4 Way Nav to access all of the SETUP pages where you can set your inputs, outputs, MIDI settings and more. Q: How do I reset the global settings of my POD HD Device? A: Press and hold the Left Arrow button on the 4 Way Nav as you power on the POD. This reset resets the global settings back to factory defaults and also renames the Set Lists to factory as well. NOTE: This DOES NOT reset the presets. That requires re-installing the flash memory using Line 6 Monkey. (Same as Factory Reset above.) Q: How should I set the OUTPUT MODE on my POD HD Device? A: The OUTPUT MODE can be set in PAGE 4 of the global settings pages. NOTE: This setting affects ALL of the outputs of the POD HD500: 1/4" unbalanced L/R outputs, XLR outputs, the headphones output, and the USB record sends 1-2 into your computer. Output modes: Studio Direct: For connecting “Direct” to a mixing console (PA) or recording device. Also, this is the best setting for using headphones or monitor speakers. Combo and Stack Settings: These 4 options are all designed to optimize your tone for connecting to an external amplifier. The signal includes "Live' Cab Models, with no Mic Model or "AIR" convolution, with a special EQ curve added for each. Combo Front and Stack Front - For connecting the output of the POD HD500 into the front input of a typical combo amp or amp head + external cab, respectively. When choosing either of these Modes, you will see additional optional for further tone shaping. Combo Power Amp and Stack Power Amp - For connecting the output of the POD HD500 into the power amp or Effects Return of a combo or head amp. Set the AMP/LINE switch on the POD HD500 to LINE for this output mode. Use this setting to bypass the front preamp of your amplifier to use the POD as the digital preamp being fed directly into the power amp section of the amp. NOTE: If plugging into the effects return of an amp, set any loop level controls to 100% if available. May get lower output in amps with parallel effects loops by design. Sometimes, you may need to insert a dummy 1/4" into the amps input to make this connection work.

The POD HD Pro DOES provide phantom power as well as a PAD and Low Pass Filter. Q: What Sample rates do POD HD Devices Support? A: The POD HD500 Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96k at 16 or 24bit Q: What is the input impedance of the POD HD before the 1.40 flash memory update? A: The input impedance of the POD HD series before the 1.40 flash memory update was 1M Ohm. POD HD 500 Specific Functions: Q: How do I enable the Wah effect with the expression pedal of the POD HD500? A: When you assign a wah effect (or any other effect) to be toggled on/off by the Expression Pedal Toe Switch, in order to physically enable or disable the effect, you must press down hard on the front toe portion of the expression pedal. You must use a good amount of pressure pressing down on the toe of the expression pedal which makes it difficult to do with your hand. Placing the pedal on the floor and press down hard on the toe of the expression pedal with your foot. You should see the red EXP 1 light change to green EXP 2 (or vice versa). Q: Which external expression pedals can I use with the POD HD500? A: We recommend using the Line 6 EX-1 or the Mission Engineering EP1-L6 expression pedals. You can also use any other expression pedal containing a 10k Ohm Potentiometer. Expression pedals allow you to change stompbox controls using your feet so you can adjust the sound while you play. On the fly, you can modify the length of your delay time, dial up the reverb mix, or change the depth of your tremolo, or anything you program the expression pedal to control on the POD HD500. Q: How do I assign the foot switches of the POD HD500 to use it as a MIDI Controller? A: Press and hold the MOVE button to access the MIDI ASSIGN screen. This is where you configure custom MIDI commands to the Expression Pedal 1 and 2, Expression Pedal Toe switch, FS1-FS8, Looper, and TAP switches. All settings on this screen are saved per Preset. Please go over the Advanced User Guide for further info. NOTE: When the bottom row footswitches are set to ABCD Mode, FS5-FS8 will ONLY send Program Change messages that are sent as a result of switching presets, even if assigned to send a different MIDI parameter in the MIDI ASSIGN screen. Q: How do I assign an effect or amp block to be toggled with a foot switch? A: In the Signal Flow screen, select the FX or Amp Block which you want assigned to one of your footswitches. Then Press and hold the ENTER button to display the Footswitch Assign screen. The Footswitch Assign page is display is similar to your Signal Flow view. Use Multi-function Knob 1 to select the footswitch to which you want this FX Block assigned. You can also just press the FS switch you would like to assign it to that amp or effect. NOTE: you can assign multiple FX Blocks to a single footswitch or Exp Pedal's "toe switch". You can reference the current Preset’s FX footswitch assignments by pressing the VIEW button to display the Performance View screen. Q: How do I calibrate the Expression Pedal of the POD HD500? A: Please go over the following POD HD500X/HD500 Pedal Calibration document for instructions on how to calibrate the expression pedal of the POD HD500. POD HD Bean Specific Functions: Q: What is the new TWEAK knob for on the POD HD? A: Controls amp or effect parameters that are assigned to TWEAK in the CONTROLLER ASSIGN screen as you would with expression pedal of an FBV controller. Select the desired amp or FX block, then doouble-press the MOVE button to enter the CONTROLLER ASSIGN screen. Q: Which foot controllers are compatible with the POD HD desktop device? A: The FBV Shortboard Mk II will give you access to the most features of the POD HD by providing you the ability to access all of the presets within the Set Lists' of the POD along with giving the ability to toggle all effects on/off, control over the built-in looper, tuner enable/disable, and the ability to program the Expression Pedal(s) to control parameters of the amps and effects on the POD HD. You can also use the FBV Express Mk II pedal for changing between presets, tuner, and expression pedal control. POD HD Pro Specific Functions: Q: What kinds of connections does the POD HD Pro have? Guitar input with switchable pad Mic input with gain knob, high-pass filter, -20dB pad, and phantom power 1/4" unbalanced outputs (mono/stereo, instrument/line) XLR balanced outputs (left/right, instrument/mic) 1/4" line-level inputs (mono/stereo, +4/-10) USB MIDI In and Out/Thru S/PDIF I/O 1/4" stereo FX loop (mono/stereo) 1/4" Dry Output Variax® Digital Input connection FBV™ foot controller connection AES/EBU I/O L6 LINK™ jack for seamless integration with DT-series tube amplifiers Q: Which foot controllers are compatible with the POD HD Pro? A: The FBV Shortboard Mk II will give you access to the most features of the POD HD by providing you the ability to access all of the presets within the Set Lists' of the POD along with giving the ability to toggle all effects on/off, control over the built-in looper, tuner enable/disable, and the ability to program the Expression Pedal(s) to control parameters of the amps and effects on the POD HD. You can also use the FBV Express Mk II pedal for changing between presets, tuner, and expression pedal control. Q: Why does the Asterisk appear in the POD HD500 Edit software when no changes are made? In the POD HD500 Edit software, the asterisk will show up in the POD HD500 LCD screen every time a preset is selected in the editor window, let alone when a preset is modified.? This is expected behavior and does not indicate a problem with the POD.? When the POD HD500 is NOT CONNECTED to the POD HD500 Edit software, the asterisk only shows up in the screen when the current preset is modified. Q: Will the POD HD500 accept MIDI CC's allowing it to be controlled by a 3rd party MIDI controller such as a GCX Ground Control? The POD HD500 will accept Program Changes and Bank Changes at this time via a 3rd party MIDI controller however, the POD will NOT react to MIDI CC's sent from a MIDI controller. This is something we are currently evaluating.

Authorisierte Servicezentren werden eine Kopie Ihres Kaufbelegs benötigen um Ihr Kaufdatum zu überprüfen und so Ihre Garantieanfrage zu bearbeiten. Bitte achten Sie darauf, dass Sie dieses zur Hand haben, sollten Sie die Garantie Ihres Produktes jemals benutzen müssen. Wie setze ich mein POD HD auf die Werkseinstellungen zurück? Um Ihr POD HD wieder auf Werkseinstellungen zurückzusetzen, müssen Sie das Flash Memory (Firmware) Ihres POD HD anhand der Line 6 Monkey Software neuinstallieren. Schliessen Sie Ihr POD HD an Ihren PC oder Mac via USB 2.0 an. Trennen Sie alle unnötigen USB Geräte von Ihrem PC oder Mac und überprüfen Sie alle USB Ports auf Verbindungsprobleme. Hier können Sie ein Video-Tutorial zur Neuinstallation des Flash Memory Ihres POD HD finden. Wie kann ich die allgemeinen Einstellungen des POD HD aufrufen? Drücken und halten Sie den VIEW Knopf auf der linken Seite des LCD gedrückt um auf die verschiedenen Seiten des Setups zugreifen zu können. Drücken Sie den linken und rechten Knopf des Steuerkreuzes um zwischen den verschiedenen Seiten des Setups zu wechseln. Hier können Sie nun Inputs, Outputs oder auch MIDI Einstellungen und mehr verändern. Wie kann ich die allgemeinen Einstellungen des POD HD auf die Werkseinstellungen zurücksetzen? Drücken und halten Sie den linken Knopf des Steuerkreuzes während Sie den POD HD starten gedrückt. Dies setzt alle Einstellungen und Namen der Set Lists des POD HD auf die Werkseinstellungen zurück. Achtung, dies SETZT IHRE PRESETS NICHT ZURÜCK. Um Ihre Presets auch zurückzusetzen müssen Sie Flash Memory anhand von Line 6 Monkey neu installieren wie vorher beschrieben. Wie kann ich den Output Modus meines POD HD verändern? Der OUTPUT MODE kann auf Seite 4 der allgemeinen Einstellungen verändert werden. Achtung: Diese Einstellung betrifft jeglichen Output Ihres POD HD500: Den 6.35mm unsymmetrischen L/R Ausgang, den Kopfhörer Ausgang und den USB Master L/R Ausgang für Computer. Output Modi: "Studio Direct": Dieser Modus ist dazu gedacht Ihr POD HD sofort mit einem Mischpult oder Aufnahmegerät zu verbinden. Außerdem ist dies die beste Einstellung um Kopfhörer und Abhörlautsprecher zu benutzen. "Combo" und "Stack" Einstellungen: Diese 4 Optionen wurden alle dazu entworfen um Ihr Gerät mit einem externen Verstärker zu verbinden. Das Signal beinhaltet die "Live Cab" Modelle ohne Mikrofon Model oder auch den "AIR" Faltungshall mit jeweils spezieller Equalizerkurve. · "Combo Front" und "Stack Front": Zur Verbindung des Ausgangs Ihres POD HD500 mit dem Fronteingang einer typischen Verstärkercombo oder eines Topteils, mit jeweiliger Lautsprecherbox. Wenn Sie eine dieser Einstellungen wählen werden Sie weitere Optionen zur Klanggestaltung erhalten. · "Combo Power Amp" und "Stack Power Amp": Zur Verbindung Ihres POD HD500 mit einer Endstufe oder Effect Return einer Combo oder eines Topteils. Setzten Sie hierzu den AMP/LINE Schalter Ihres POD HD500 auf LINE als Ausgangsmodus. Nutzen Sie diese Einstellung um den Vorverstärker Ihres Verstärkers zu umgehen und den POD als digitalen Vorverstärker zu nutzen der so sofort das Signal in den Eingang der Endstufe einspeist. Achtung, wenn Sie Ihr POD HD in den Effect Return einstecken, setzten Sie die Loop Level Einstellungen auf 100% sofern verfügbar. Es könnte sein, dass hierbei ein niedriger Ausgang bei Verstärkern mit parallelem Effekt Loop auftritt. Manchmal kann es sein, dass Sie einen 6.35mm Blindstecker im Verstärkereingang brauchen damit dies funktioniert. Generelle Funktionen des POD HD: Wie kann ich die Presets und die Einstellungen meines POD HD auf meinem Computer verwalten? Laden Sie sich dazu die POD HD Edit Software herunter, mit welcher Sie Ihre Presets und Einstellungen bearbeiten oder erstellen können. Sie können mit dieser Software auch Ihre Presets auf dem Computer abspeichern, außerdem können Sie Presets die Sie von heruntergeladen oder selbst erstellt haben auf Ihr POD HD Gerät laden. Wieviel Loopingzeit hat das POD HD? Auf voller Geschwindigkeit hat der Looper 24 Sekunden Loopingzeit, auf ½ Speed Modus hat der Looper eine Laufzeit von 48 Sekunden. Was sind Set Lists und wie kann ich auf diese zugreifen? Das POD HD500 kann bis zu 64 Presets für jede Set List abspeichern. Drücken Sie auf den PRESETS Knopf um sich Ihre Set Lists anzeigen zu lassen. Benutzten Sie hier das Steuerkreuz oder drehen Sie an der PRESETS Taste um Ihre Set List auszuwählen, drücken Sie nach Ihrer Auswahl ENTER. So können Sie sofort die gewählte Set List laden und auf alle ihre Presets zugreifen. Bietet der XLR Mikrofoneingang Phantomspeisung für Kondensatormikrofone? Der XLR Mikrofoneingang bietet auf dem HD500 und dem HD Bean keine Phantomspeisung. Dazu müssten Sie einen externen Vorverstärker benutzen um das Kondensatormikrofon mit einer Phantomspeisung zu versorgen bevor Sie es mit dem POD HD500 oder Bean verbinden. Achtung, das POD HD Pro besitzt eine Phantomspeisung sowie ein Vordämpfung und einen Rauschfilter. Welche Sampleraten unterstützt das POD HD? Das POD HD500 unterstützt 44.1, 48, 88.2 und 96kHz bei 16 oder 24 Bit. Welche Eingangsimpedanz hat das POD HD vor dem 1.40 Flash Memory Update? Die Eingangsimpedanz des POD HD vor dem 1.40 Flash Memory Update liegt bei 1 MΩ. Spezifische Funktionen des POD HD500: Wie kann ich den Wah Effekt mit dem Expression Pedal des POD HD500 aktivieren? Wenn Sie einen Wah Effekt an Ihr Pedal gebunden haben, können Sie diesen dann physisch, per Druck mit dem Fuß auf das Pedal aktivieren. Sie müssen kräftig auf den oberen Teil des Pedals drücken um den Effekt zu aktivieren. Da Sie relativ kräftig oben auf das Pedal drücken müssen ist es schwer den Effekt per Hand zu aktivieren. Indem Sie das Pedal auf den Boden stellen und kräftig mit dem Fuß drücken wird das rote EXP 1 Licht auf das grüne EXP 2 Licht wechseln (oder umgekehrt). Welche externen Expression Pedale kann ich mit dem POD HD500 benutzen? Wir empfehlen die Nutzung des Line 6 EX-1 oder des Mission Engineering EP1-L6 Expression Pedals. Außerdem können Sie jedes andere Expression Pedal benutzen welches ein 10000 Ohm Potenziometer hat. Expression Pedale erlauben es Ihnen Ihre StompBox Steuerung zu wechseln um den Ton anzupassen während Sie spielen. Spontan können Sie so die Länge der Verzögerungszeit verändern, die Tiefe Ihres Tremolos umschalten, den Reverb Mix aufrufen oder alles was Sie dem Expression Pedal zuweisen, was es auf dem POD HD500 steuern soll. Wie weise ich den Trittschaltern des POD HD500 eine MIDI Kontrollfunktion zu? Drücken und halten Sie den MOVE Knopf um auf das MIDI ASSIGN Fenster zugreifen zu können. Hier können Sie nun Ihre eigenen MIDI Befehle für das Expression Pedal 1 und 2, den Fußschalter des Expression Pedals, den FS1-FS8, dem Looper und den TAP Schaltern zuweisen. Alle Einstellungen in diesem Fenster sind per Preset gespeichert. Bitte benutzen Sie das weiterführenden Benutzerhandbuch (Advance User Guide) für weitere Informationen. Achtung, wenn die untere Reihe der Fußschalter auf den ABCD Modus geschaltet sind werden FS5-FS8 nur Mitteilungen senden, die als Resultat der Änderung der Presets auftreten sogar dann wenn diesen vom MIDI ASSIGN Fenster zugewiesen wurde andere MIDI Einstellungen zu versenden. Wie kann ich einem Fußschalter einen Effekt oder Verstärkerblock zuweisen? Im Signal Flow Fenster wählen Sie FX oder Amp Block aus welches auch immer Sie auf einen Fußschalter zugewiesen haben wollen. Dann drücken und halten Sie den ENTER Knopf um das Footswitch Assign Fenster aufzurufen. Das Footswitch Assign Fenster ist ähnlich dem Signal Flow Fenster. Benutzen Sie den Multifunktionsknopf 1 um den Fußschalter auszuwählen den Sie für die Zuweisung benutzen wollen. Sie können auch einfach den Fußschalter drücken dem Sie gerne den Effekt oder Verstärker zuweisen würden. Achtung, Sie können einem Fußschalter oder dem Fußschalter des Expression Pedal mehrere FX Blocks zuweisen. Durch Drücken des VIEW Knopfes können Sie sich alle derzeitigen Zuweisungen der Fußschalter im Performance Fenster anzeigen lassen. Wie kann ich das Expression Pedal des POD HD500 neu kalibrieren? Bitte benutzen Sie zur Kalibrierung des Pedals diese Anleitung. Spezifische Funktionen des POD HD Bean: Wofür ist der neue TWEAK Knopf auf dem POD HD? Der TWEAK Knopf kontrolliert Verstärker- und Effekteinstellungen, die dem TWEAK Knopf im CONTROLLER ASSIGN Fenster zugewiesen sind. Wählen Sie den gewünschten Verstärker oder FX Block aus, doppelklicken sie den MOVE Knopf um das CONTROLLER ASSIGN Fenster zu öffnen. Welche Fußpedale sind mit dem POD HD Desktop kompatibel?

Warum taucht das Sternchen im POD HD500 Edit auf, obwohl ich nichts verändert habe? In der POD HD500 Edit Software teucht das Sternchen auf, sobald ein Preset im Editer Fenster ausgewählt wurde. Somit auch wenn eines modifiziert wurde. Dies ist aber gewollt und zeigt kein Problem mit dem POD an. Wenn das POD HD500 nicht mit der POD HD500 Edit Software verbunden ist, dann wird das Sternchen nur dann auftauchen, wenn das Preset modifiziert wird. Akzeptiert das POD HD500 MIDI CC, was die Kontrolle durch einen MIDI Controller eines Dritten wie GCX Ground Control erlauben würde? Das POD HD500 akzeptiert zurzeit Program Changes und Bank Changes via MIDI Controller, POD reagiert jedoch nicht auf MIDI CC Befehle, die von einem MIDI Controller verschickt werden.

  15. POD HD Flash Memory v2.62 RELEASE NOTES POD HD v2.62 is a FREE firmware update that includes additional features and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all POD HD users perform this update! It is also recommended that you back up your current presets by using POD HD Edit to create a preset bundle, allowing you to include installing new presets as part of the update process. The easiest way to perform the update process is by installing the latest version of Line 6 Monkey. Once you've connected your POD HD to your computer via USB port (hubs are not supported), Monkey will recognize the unit and take you through the update process. It's important to update both the USB Firmware (1.04) and Flash Memory (2.62). The Line 6 Monkey application may be downloaded here. What's New? Global EQ - Global EQ is used for compensating for the wide disparity in acoustic environments on tour or when traveling from studio to studio, and is applied to all setlists and presets. Global EQ features three fully parametric bands plus variable low and high cut filters. To access Global EQ: Press and hold the VIEW button to open the Setup Menu. Using the four-way, cursor right until you see the Global EQ screen. Turn Knob 1 to select the desired EQ band (Low Cut, Low, Mid, High, High Cut) and turn Knobs 2, 3, and/or 4 to adjust the selected band. To bypass or enable Global EQ, press ENTER.

  16. Deutsch Français Important Notes: These instructions also apply to POD HD400 and POD HD300 and their associated editors. It is highly recommended that these updates are installed in a specific sequence. Please see the installation notes* below. Bug Fixes These updates address a bug which allows invalid data to be introduced to presets. The invalid data is caused by asynchronous communication between the POD HD/HD500/HD Pro hardware device and the POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit software application. In rare instances, recalling presets containing invalid data may cause intermittent high volume events. Installing POD HD/HD500/HD Pro firmware v2.62 and POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit v2.26 prevents invalid data from being introduced into presets. During synchronization between POD HD/HD500/HD Pro and POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit, the hardware displays a ‘Sync In Progress’ message and does not respond to any buttons or knobs until synchronization is complete. Additionally, any presets which contain invalid data are reset to an initialized state. These presets are easily identified as ‘New Tone (Reset)’. *Installation Notes Please follow these steps sequentially: Disconnect any audio connections to the POD HD/HD500/HD Pro, connect to the computer via USB and save a preset Bundle, Set Lists, or individual presets from POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit v1.06 (if you do not wish to save any existing presets you may skip this step) Quit the POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit app and launch Line 6 Monkey to install POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit v2.26 Complete the POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit installation and launch Monkey once again to install POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Flash Memory v2.62 During the installation, Monkey will ask if you want to keep your presets, click ‘No’, and complete the installation following the on-screen instructions. On the POD HD500, you *must* reset the global setup options which includes resetting the Setlist names and pedal calibration by: Disconnect the USB cable connection between HD500 and host computer. Power off the POD HD500. Power on the POD HD500 while holding the LEFT ARROW [*] If you do not do this, one of the tell-tale symptoms that may surface after a Monkey Flash Memory update is that the HD500 will be stuck in a continuous re-boot/power cycling state (you'll keep seeing the Logo and the unit keeps re-starting itself). Sometimes this may not occur, but a secondary telltale sign that a user has not performed a Global Settings reset is the USB communication between the HD500 and HD500 Edit software will be extremely slow/sluggish. ***NOTE: Please also make sure to re-calibrate the onboard expression pedal of the HD500 after performing the Global Settings reset. Instructions: How to calibrate the POD HD500X\HD500 Expression Pedal. [*]Launch POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit to restore any saved presets. **Please note that any previously saved presets that were corrupted in any way will be discarded and set to New Tone (Reset) once imported into POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit 2.00.

Instructions de la mise à jour version 2.02 de la firmware POD HD500X/HD500/HD/HD Pro et version 2.00 du logiciel POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Note importante: Nous recommandons d'installer ces mises à jour dans une séquence spécifique. Veuillez visiter les notes d'installation* au-dessous svp. Corrections d'erreurs: Ces mises à jour corrigent des erreurs qui permettent des données non valides d'être introduits dans les presets. Les données non valides sont causées à cause d'une communication asynchrone entre le POD HD/HD500/HD Pro et le logiciel Edit. Dans cas très rares, l'utilisation des presets qui ont des données non valides dedans, cause des événements intermittents à volume élevé. En installant la version 2.02 de la firmware POD HD/HD500/HD Pro et la version 2.00 de l'Edit de POD HD/HD500/HD Pro, vous bloquez les données non valides d'entrer les presets. Pendant la synchronisation entre POD HD/HD500/HD Pro et le logiciel Edit du POD HD/HD500/HD Pro, l'appareil vous montre le message "Sync In Progress" et ne répond pas aux boutons jusqu'à ce que la synchronisation ait terminée. Les presets avec des données non valides dedans seront réinitialisés. Ces presets ressemblent à ceci: "New Tone (Reset)". *Notes d'installation: Suivez ces étapes une par une: Déconnectez tous les connexions audio du POD HD/HD500/HD Pro. Connectez à l'ordinateur via USB et enregistrez des presets Bundle, Set Lists ou les presets individuels du POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit de la version 1.06.

Aktualisierungsanweisungen zur POD HD500X/HD500/HD/HD Pro Firmware Version 2.02 und POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Version 2.00 Achtung: Wir empfehlen, dass Sie diese Aktualisierungen in einer spezifischen Sequenz durchführen. Bitte schauen Sie sich dazu die Installationshinweise* unten an. Fehlerbehebungen: Diese Aktualisierungen beheben einen Fehler, der es fehlerhaften Daten erlaubt in Presets abgespeichert zu werden. Die fehlerhaften Daten entstehen aufgrund einer asynchronen Kommunikation zwischen dem POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Gerät und der POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Software. In seltenen Fällen verursachte der Abruf der fehlerhaften Presets zeitweise Ereignisse sehr hoher Lautstärke. Die Installation der POD HD500X/HD500/HD/HD Pro Firmware Version 2.02 und POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Version 2.00 hält diese fehlerhaften Daten davon ab, in das Preset zu gelangen. Während der Synchronisierung zwischen HD500X/HD500/HD/HD Pro und POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit zeigt Ihnen das Gerät "Sync In Progress" an und reagiert nicht auf Knopfdrücke bis die Synchronisation vollendet ist. Zusätzlich werden alle Presets, die fehlerhafte Daten bereits enthalten, zurückgesetzt. Diese Presets sehen dann so aus: "New Tone (Reset)". *Installationshinweise: Bitte folgen Sie diesen Etapen der Reihe nach: Trennen Sie alle Audioverbindungen von Ihrem POD HD/HD500/HD Pro, stecken Sie es nun an den Computer via USB und speichern Sie ein Preset für Bundle, Set Lists oder individuelle Presets Ihrer POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Software V1.06 ab. (Wenn Sie keine Presets abspeichern wollen, dann können Sie diesen Schritt überpsringen.) Schließen Sie die POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit Software und starten Sie Line 6 Monkey um POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit 2.00 zu installieren. Beenden Sie die installation von POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit 2.00 und starten Sie Line 6 Monkey nocheinmal um diesmal POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Flash Memory 2.02 zu installieren. Währender dieser Installation wird Monkey Sie fragen, ob Sie Ihre Prsets behalten wollen. Klicken Sie "No" und schließen Sie die Installation ab indem Sie den Anweisungen auf dem Bildschirm folgen. Auf dem POD HD500 müssen Sie die Global Settings zurücksetzen. Indem Sie: Die USB Kabel entfernen zwischen HD500 und Computer. Das HD500 abschalten. Das HD500 wieder starten während Sie die linke Pfeiltaste ( [*]Wenn Sie dies nicht tun, eines der Symptome nach dem Update könnte sein, dass das HD500 sich unendlich oft neustartet/abschaltet. Manchmal passiert das nicht, aber ein zweites Symptom ist eine extrem langsame USB-Kommunikation zwischen HD500 und HD500 Edit. Achtung, Sie müssen nach dem Reset auch das Pedal des HD500 neu kalibrieren. Anweisungen dazu können Sie hier finden. [*]Starten Sie nun POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit um abgespeicherte Presets wiederherzustellen. Achtung, vorher abgespeicherte Presets, die korrupt waren, werden umbennant in New Tone (Reset) sobald diese in POD HD/HD500/HD Pro Edit 2.00 importiert werden.

  18. Many new users have contacted us with questions regarding the usage of Line 6 POD Studio USB audio interfaces in conjunction with AVID's ProTools recording software. Here are a few important things to be aware of: ProTools version 8.05 or earlier requires that the user runs a proprietary DigiDesign,AVID or M-Audio audio interface device with this software. POD Studio devices cannot be connected to Pro Tools via USB and used as the main audio Input/Output device. Basically, the AVID-approved hardware device has proprietary security/licensing scheme embedded inside to allow the user to run the Pro Tools application. If the device isn't present, the program will not launch. Pro Tools 9.0 or later can interface directly with Line 6 interfaces. This version supports ASIO,Core Audio and third party audio interfaces. If you are currently running Version 8 and would like to use your POD, POD Studio or TonePort with Pro Tools, you will have to upgrade. Line 6 License Manager can authorize your Line 6 licenses to your computer, allowing you to use your Line 6 Software in any Pro Tools version without the need for a Line 6 interface. For more information, please refer to page 1.5 of the Line 6 License Manager User Guide. For more information about ProTools, you can visit AVID's website. Of course, you can use the Line 6 POD Studio USB interfaces with any recording applications that do not require a proprietary hardware device. Among these programs would be: SONAR, Cubase, Digital Performer, Live, Logic, GarageBand, Reaper just to name a few.
  19. Application Q: What are the presets on the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro? A: The presets are available from the manual download section. If you would like to return your unit to the original presets, please perform a factory reset (see the Lowdown trouble shooting section). Q: Are there any video tutorials I can view to learn more about the Lowdown? A: Please see the Lowdown Movies in the product description page. Q: Is there an editing software that works with the Lowdown amplifier? A: No, there is no editing software for the Lowdown series as there is no way to connect the lowdown amplifier to your computer. Q: Is there a "manual mode" so I can avoid the presets and just use the knobs on the amplifier? A:Yes, one you have selected your preset you want to run in manual mode, hit the preset again and the light will turn off, indicating you are in manual mode. Q: How do I change the tuner's reference frequency on the Lowdown? A: The Lowdown Tuner Reference Frequency cannot be changed - it's 440 all the way. Setup/Connections Q: Is there a direct out on the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro series amplifiers? A: Yes, there are balanced line level XLR outputs on the on the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro. The line level XLR output is not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console. Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box?) A: If you desire an unaffected bass tone on the Lowdown 150/175/300pro, you will want to go into a DI box and send the DI signal to the mixing console, and have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier. The Lowdown 400pro does have a ¼” preamp output to send an unaffected tone to a mixer. Q: Can I use a Line 6 controller Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro? A: Yes, we recommend using the FBV Shortboard with the Lowdown series. The FBV will work with the Lowdown series (although there will be numerous buttons that have no effect), and the FBV Express will not scroll through the banks. Q: Do the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro amplifiers have an effects loop? A: No, none of the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro amplifiers has an effects loop. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro? A: Yes, an external preamp can be connected to the instrument input of the Lowdown, be sure to send an instrument level signal rather than a line level signal to avoid clipping and/or damage to the Lowdown. An external pre-amp can also be run into the MP3 input jack, which would relegate the Lowdown amplifier to a “powered speaker”. Q: Can I connect an external cabinet to a Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro? A: There is no external speaker connection on the Lowdown 150,175, or 300pro, but the 400pro has a single 8 ohm minimum Neutrik Speakon connector to connect an exterior cabinet. Q: Does connecting an external cab to the LowDown 400 Pro mute the internal combo speakers? A: No, connecting an external cab DOES NOT mute the internal speakers. So, the combo speakers will produce audio along with the external cabinet speakers. Q: Does the built in head unit of the LD400Pro have the same exact electronics & power output as the separate HD400 head unit (both have the identical preamp & power amp sections)? A: Yes Q: Does the LD400 put out the full 400 watts to its 2 X 10" speakers? A: yes because we chose speakers that create a 4 ohm load internally. Q: Is the 'Extension Speaker Output' on the LD400 in parallel or in series to the 2X10 internal speakers of the unit? A: The extension cabinet is parallel, with an 8 ohm cabinet the amp will output approximately 650 watts. Specifications Q: What's the rated wattage output and speaker size of Lowdown 150/175/300pro/400pro?? LD150: 12"/ 150 Watts LD175: 15" with Horn/175 Watts LD300pro: 15" with Horn/300 Watts LD400pro: 2x10" speakers and high-frequency compression driver/400 Watts Q: What is the impedance of the LD series? A:1 Mohm for passive input, 40 Kohm for active input Q: What brand speakers are used in the 150/175/300pro/400pro? A: Line 6 lowdown speakers are manufactured by Hi-Touch.

A: X3 Pro Dimensions: Width: 17" (19" including the ears) Heighth: 5" Depth: 8" Q: The Specifications on the web states that the X3Pro requires USB 2.0 but the actual USB input on the back panel is not labeled. Does it required USB 2.0? A: POD X3 Pro, as well as POD X3 and X3 Live, requires USB 2.0. For details on USB connectivity please refer to the USB Connectivity Guide Q: How do I restore the X3 Pro to it’s the Factory Presets? A: Press and hold the 'Home/Hold For Commands' button, select'Reset User Presets' and press the 'Save' knob to reset the User bank to its factory presets. Q: Will the included POD Farm Plugin require us to use the X3Pro as a dongle? A: The POD Farm Plugin works with the POD X3 Pro just like it does with other compatible products. The answer is yes. Q: Are any of the inputs/outputs, processors or other hardware/software sonically superior to the X3L/Bean? A: No Q: What are the MIDI implications of the X3 Pro? A: The MIDI Implications are the same as the POD X3 and the POD X3 Live. The X3 series include a USB connection, and these units will both expose a set of USB MIDI In/Out ports on your Windows or Mac computer. However, these devices utilize different types of commands and, therefore, will not respond to MIDI control data. As with POD X3 Live, the Pro includes 5-pin MIDI In/Out jacks that can be used strictly for receiving MIDI Program Change messages (For scrolling through User Presets) and for sending MIDI CC data when using the onboard pedal for Volume, Wah, and Tweak parameters. Q: What is the software compatibility of the X3 Pro? A: The POD X3 Pro is currently compatible with Line 6 Monkey, Gearbox, Guitarport Online, Workbench (w/ a Variax Guitar), and as a dongle for the POD Farm Plug-in (within your DAW only). Q: How can I tell which version of Flash Memory & USB firmware is installed in my X3Pro? A: Press and hold 'OUTPUTS' for system settings. Use the directional keys to scroll to the last page: The versions are displayed under 'CNTRST'™ Shown as: FLASH MEMORY VERSION: x.xx USB FIRMWARE VERSION: x.xx Q: How do I sync the POD X3 Pro to slave over S/PDIF? A: The POD X3 Pro expects the master clock signal on its S/PDIF input only, so, connecting the S/PDIF IN must be connected to master clock source. Make sure you connect the S/PDIF OUT on your POD X3 Pro to the S/PDIF IN of your clock master unit and S/PDIF IN on your POD X3 Pro to S/PDIF OUT of your clock master. In the INPUTS page of the POD X3 Pro, set anything BUT Variax as Tone 1 and Tone 2 and DIGITAL set to S/PDIF. In the OUTPUTS page of the POD X3 Pro, set your S/PDIF outputs settings in the Studio Direct Mix menu, and MATCH DIG IN for RATE.
