mtreehugger posted a topic in DT50 / DT25and maybe i don't need to? i bought this baby yesterday. i've hooked up the midi to my pod hd500, attempting to use that as my usb interface. (per the dt50 midi implementation guide: "Got a POD HD500 or POD HD Pro? These devices are capable of functioning as MIDI controllers, where you can configure the specific MIDI CC messages to be sent from its footswitches & pedals. See the POD HD Advanced Guide PDFs at http://line6.com/support/manuals.") so i read everything i could find, but nothing really tells me to do anything. but monkey will not see the DT! i tried powering it up in safe mode as well, to no avail. monkey sees the hd500, but when i try to change devices there's nothing there. there's an option to find device via midi connection, but that route fails to find the hd500. i also tried it using a mic cable in lieu of the l6 link in hopes that since midi passes through this connection, maybe that's how the firmware is installed. nope. same story--monkey can't see the dt. (the midi cables were disconnected for this attempt.) so then i thought maybe i needed to set up my hd500 for midi, but can't find anything anywhere that tells me to change the pod settings from the default, which is where it's set. however, since i will connect through the l6 link, what i've read seems to indicate that the hd500 will do the job for me anyway, whereas if you are using midi to control the DT50 then you'd want the v2.0 firmware--is that an accurate statement? it's so frustrating because most of what passes for instructions on the subject are more like sales pitches: "you can do this, you can do that, blah blah blah..." but no, i can't, because you don't tell me how or you tell me wrong! any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!
