Just picked up a Variax 300 in the fall and am having a hoot with it! I was looking at getting a used POD 500 or POD 500X but am confused by what I read on the forums. From an old post: The older Variax will work with the HD500x just fine but you can't run the old Workbench with the HD500x. You will have to use the dongle to work with Workbench. The other features work and you can select which type Variax you have when you set them up on the HD500x. It looks like the Variax workbench is not compatible with the 500X; but I don't get it. I want to use the Variax workbench to program the 300; what does the 500 software have to do with programming the 300? I have the physical usb connection dongle and program the 300 all the time. Since I don't have a 500(X), I'm just assuming I plug the Variax 300 into it and then the pedal can read the guitar's stored models and I just add a model to a patch that I create. Then when I play and pull up a new patch the guitar changes with the patch? What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any and all help!
Thank you in advance for reading this and any relief you can send my way. My HD 500x is dropping out, especially with more overdriven sounds when I use my Fender Strat (which has passive pickups). It will generally start off great and then quickly drop drastically in volume and sound like I am playing under water. I do not generally have this issue when playing my acoustic through it. Sean
i connect my pod500x to mac ,use logic to record.but when i just play or record,the amps and all the effects,eq etc are activated .i can disable it from the mixer bar.but the amp from gallery is still on,which changes the original sound coming from pod hd500x.therefore,i was wondering if there is a way to bypass the amp sound from logic,so i can record the exact sound coming from only my hd500x. can any one help with this please.
