kkaustin posted a topic in POD HDHi fellow Line 6 owners, I purchased an hd500x several months ago for live use as the lead guitar player at our local church. I am very very impressed with the hd500x. It is by far the best multi fx unit I've had the pleasure of using. After searching multiple forums/posts I've come to you veterans for any advice or experience that you would be so kind to offer. I use the line 6 ex-1 exp pedal for volume and swells. I run it into the hd500x's "Pedal 2" input. It has great sound, but as many players have found, it isn't very good in the pedal-travel and durability department. So I thought, I'm gonna buy a heavier volume pedal with better travel/volume ratio. So after several hours of research I decided to try the Morley PVO+ Volume Plus Pedal. My error, I've found, is that it isn't compatible when plugged into the "Pedal 2" input on the hd500x. So I tried running my guitar into the morley, then from the morley into to the "guitar in" input on the hd500x. It works, but with inferior sound quality as compared to the ex-1 (Pedal 2 input). Not to mention I'm not impressed with it's volume taper, even after being "adjusted" multiple times with indiscernible results. So, my dilemma lies in finding a new external pedal to run into the (Pedal 2) input for volume and swells. Does anyone know of any well built pedals that are "compatible" to our beloved hd500x and its software? Any owners out there with success using other brands of volume or exp pedals in the (Pedal 2) input? I've read the forums and only found the Mission Engineering EP1-L6 For Line 6. Its nice and all, but $130? If that is my only option I'm inclined to stick with the ex-1. Thank you for patiently reading my lengthy post. Any advice or shared experiences would be very valuable to me as well as greatly appreciated. Sincerely, kkaustin
A couple years ago I bought a Peavey AT-200 Autotune. I used it with my POD HD500 and after just a few minutes the electronic features of the guitar stopped working (I mean no signal at all when features were engaged). I sent the guitar back and got another thinking maybe it was bad out the box. I called Peavey and was told there should be no compatibility issues with the POD. I got the new one, plugged it directly in to an amp to start with and everything was fine. Ran it through my POD and the same failure occurred. Sent the ax back for a refund. Now I'm thinking of getting the Variax JVT-69. Before I do I thought I'd throw it out here to see if anybody has had any issues or some advice on what to be alert to. Since both products come from Line 6 I am not anticipating a problem but need some reassurance. Any comments? Djams
haw3695 posted a topic in Spider IV / Spider OnlineHey, I am a artist looking for some more volume. I currently own the line 6 Spider MK IV 75watt amplifier and i was wondering if the Line 6 spider guiar halfstack would be compatible to connect to my current amp model to increase volume. Thanks Hunter.
