MyNameIsHagan posted a topic in HelixSo, this may be too much to want. I upgraded from the Helix LT to a Rack with the foot controller recently. When I had the LT, i had the built in exp pedal set to a pitch shifter and an external exp pedal set to volume controller. It was great. Well the Helix Foot Controller doesn't have a built in exp pedal (which is absolutely ridiculous since the floor board and LT do, but whatever.) So I'm just using my external pedal for the pitch shifter currently. Wondering if there's any possible way to have a foot switch toggle what the external pedal is using. Like click a switch and it overwrites what the default for the pedal is and clicking it again will revert back. I've tried messing around and couldn't ever get anything to work so in bot sure if something like that is even possible. I don't really NEED the volume control, so what I'm doing is fine. But it is pretty handy having it and I don't want to buy another external pedal just for the convenience of it. Thanks anyways
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
