  1. Since I purchased the 500X a few years back, have been in love with modeling and using Line 6 products. They are very user friendly, easy to use and it's really up to the user to create great tones. I really enjoy the Custom Tones forum to upload other individuals patches. One thing I'm disappointed about though is a lack of modern tone that just rips, bites and cuts through mixes. Feel like there's a big emphasis on popular and classic when there is much more variety to be had. There's a Peavey 5150 in presets but no JSX which was a phenomenal sounding head. Options for Mesa Boogie products are available but no Randall products. Dimebag Darrell played Randall and is known widely around the world for his shredding. Scott Ian played Randall, Kirk Hammett plays Randall. Even Laney heads would be cool. Would love to see a Framus Cobra in the arsenal someday as well. Also, I see a lot of options for Celestion speakers but Eminence makes fairly good speakers as well.
  2. ok, i have a pod V1 (the red bean) i have use it for years, now i have the black POD HD DESKTOP, i'm not a beginner user of pod products, the pod hd is very bad sounding, i can not take a good tone from it, i'm working on the pod hd to make the same tone i have on the V1 and i really don't get it. on the V1 i have a beautifull distorion i use almost for everithing, the same for the clean tone the question is: how can i get the same sound on pod hd? the setting on the pod v1 are the one in the pic. the amp model is the modern hi gain (the best model on pod) with the 4x12 98 line6 custom cab drive boost on, eq boost on, bright boost on. the modern hi gain on pod v1 description on the manual is: Modern Hi Gain - The Soldano sound is intensely overdriven, and also has EQ after the preamp distortion. This oversaturated tone is well-suited to thrash metal and grunge bands, but has also been used more subtly by artists like Eric Clapton. This is a good Amp Model to use if you want to get a current Van Halen or Joe Satriani sound. The POD Modern Hi Gain Amp Model is based on one of Mike Soldano’s rackmount preamps. Talk about high gain preamp tube distortion! The X88R we studied to create this Amp Model would have been the rage for Los Angeles studio use in the late ‘80s. so i tried the soldano solo 100 overdrive on the hd but it sound s**tty compared to the V1 the 4x12 98 line6 custom cab i really don't know on what is emulated. my conclusion, line6 pod v1 is so mutch better than the pod hd, i really cant belive it, after more than 10 years they release a so bad product. line 6 JUST put the same amp and cab of the V1.0 on the pod HD please, make some "vintage pack" because the new ones are total crap. Bye one of your oldest client.
