  1. I use my HD500 for two purposes: 1. I use it to record directly into Reaper 2. As a pre-amp and effects processor into my Randall Stack (I hate the pre-amp in this one but I'm too cheap to buy a new one) In scenario 1, I use the output mode "Studio/Direct", amp/cab and effects modelling in my patches. The recording is done via USB. This is what works best for me and I really like the sound. When I like to jam with the cat, I switch to scenario 2. The Unbalanced Output (left) is connected to the effect loop return on the amp at all times so I simply fire up the amp (now bypassing the pre-amp) and load a patch with a pre-amp (no cab selected) and any number of effect simulations. The problem is that it sounds pretty bad unless I go to settings and switch to output mode: "Stack Power Amp". My problem is that the Output Mode setting is: A: A global setting. This is not something I can set in a patch so I have to set it manually every time I switch back and forth. The sound is really crappy in scenario 1 if I forget to switch back to "Studio/Direct" B: It doesn't seem to be possible to set it via HD Edit so I have to use the tiny LCD like some kind of caveman to configure the output mode ;) Is there an easier way to do this or do you have any suggestion to improve my setup to make switching back and forth simple? Thanks in advance TLDR: Too lazy to change output mode back and forth all the time.
