FW 2.62 should be transparent and not affect any existing patches and from what I have read on the forums pretty much everyone who has upgraded have reported no difference, however, myself and one other user did notice a difference in tone on our HD500 units when playing back our existing patches, specifically, the tone was less treble-y/harsh sounding and had more bottom end and warmth. I am interested to hear from anyone else with an HD500 that has upgraded to v2.62 and also noticed that their existing patches or the overall tone of the unit has then changed. So has this happened to you? If so, then please just let me know what the change was that you noticed, however subtle, and if using 1/4" or XLR outputs whether it was affected by GLOBAL EQ at default levels being ON or OFF, and also what setup you were using at the time? My setup: JTV59 > VDI > HD500 > L6 Link > L2m I am expecting this to be an empty thread, but if others have had the same issue, then hopefully we can perhaps determine some common factors and maybe even determine the cause. Thanks in advance.
Today I decided to roll back my HD500 from fw v2.62 to fw v2.32 so I could compare them to see if my tone changed at all on existing patches. First off I connected my HD500 to PC and backed up my User Set list, and the supplied Variax set list. I then rolled back the fw. I only rolled back the fw to v2.32 and did not roll back any other software on any other components so everything else is latest level. It said flash update successful after the first requested power on reset. I then performed the 2nd power on reset to reinitialise the Global parameters. (Hold left key down) I then performed the 3rd power on reset to re-calibrate the expression pedal. (Hold right key down) I then performed final power on reset to get back to standard operation and connected to PC via USB Started up HD500 Edit Received the patches from the HD500 Navigated to Set List User 1, and used HD500 Edit to open up the previously saved Variax Set list and then sent that to HD500 - all OK Navigated to Set List User 2, and used HD500 Edit to open up previously saved User Set list, and then sent that to HD500. Just after the status box reports 95% complete, I get the error pop up message - see attachment. . So, I follow the recommended steps. Closed HD500 edit. Powered on and off HD500. Rconnected to PC. Restarted HD500 edit. Re-opened the saved User Set List and sent it again - same error. DId this about 3 times - same error every time. Last time, I loaded a blank set list and sent that to the unit first and then tried sending the saved user set list - same error. I decided to go and try my HD500 with my JTV and L2M to see if the User Set List worked correctly as it appeared to have downloaded to the HD500 despite the error message. From my limited testing, it appears to be OK. But do I have a corrupt patch in there somewhere that is going to bite me in the middle of a gig when I least expect it? Why am I getting this error message? And what can I do to fix it? Or can I ignore it? Thanks in advance for your help
