Best way to control "touchy" volume with HD500X
Guitarwildman posted a topic in POD HDI've had a HD500X for about a year or so and I still haven't figured out the best way to control the volume with my foot? It's VERY touchy/sensitive... When I use my foot to control it, it is very sensitive (seems to pan/sweep to fast). When I get the volume where I want it, I like to remove my foot from the pedal.. AND when I attempt to move it away from the pedal VERY carefully, it still will move ever so slightly.. which is precisely enough movement to make it either WAYYY too loud, and/or WAYYY too soft... Currently I have EXP1 handling the volume (it's the pedal that is actually embedded into the unit). I also usually have the volume assigned to an amp volume to save my having to use an additional effect in the chain. BUT... I'm re-thinking this strategy.. I think that I need to use an external pedal and I already have the plastic Line 6 one laying around here anyway. BUT>>> I think I need some more info from you guys... I guess I should do this anyway since, I need a better way to handle volume while I'm using a Wah.. BUT... What is the best way to setup EXP2 for volume? Should I still have it operate the amp volume? If this is a good strategy.. in order to get the volume pedal usable.. do I need to change it from 0-100% to 50-100%? If so... what if I wan to lower the volume? Do I need to assign TWO freakin volume pedals?... ha.. one for 0-50% and two for 50-100%? Can we change how it sweeps? What are the best ways that you are handling your volume - The band would like me to get this under control - grin. I also don't feel like messing with my guitar volume pot to adjust this.. since it effects the tone when I do that.. Thanks!
