Is it possible to have more than 8 FX blocks on the POD HD500X?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I've been searching around the internet for some answers but struggling to find anything at all.

 

Is the POD HD500X limited to 8 FX blocks? 

I'm wanting to use quite a few modulation effects to get some really weird sounds but I want to potentially use more than 8 effects.

 

Has anyone got any insight on this?

 

Cheers,

The Pod HD500X is limited to 8 FX blocks. You would need to place additional external units in the Pod's FX Loop

There are some fairly odd creations that can be made with those 8 blocks. 

That is because, you don't have one (as example) delay to choose from. You have many, AND you can run them at the same time. 

 

This is pretty mild compared to what can be done. But watch it anyhow.

Thank you for your reply. That's a pretty cool idea to try!

That video has opened my mind. Thank you for taking the time to get that link to me.

 

After messing about with the pedal, I've found some ways to get the sounds I wanted!

 

Could either of you guys answer this one for me please? -

 

I have assigned FS1 to turn on my tube overdrive and noise gate. It also turns off the chorus.

Is there any way for FS2 to turn on the same tube overdrive? I would like to assign one FX block to multiple FS if that makes sense?

 

Thanks,

Ant

No. An FX block can only be controlled by one FS. You can do the reverse, as you've already discovered - assign multiple FX to the same FS.
