kenmac1 Posted September 7, 2015 Share Posted September 7, 2015 I am using a HD500X for live work. For some reason I am having to constantly reset the volumes on some of the patches, as they seem to change by themselves from what is preset mid way through gigs or rehearsals, for no apparent reason. My lead sounds are set about 3db louder (using a db meter) than the standard rhythm sounds, and saved as such. Yet for some reason I can be playing along with the band and everything is perfect, and I'll hit a patch, and out of nowhere it seems to just jump through the roof volume wise as if I have physically changed the bloody volume on whatever patch is screwing around on the thing again. It has happened several times, in fact most sessions I find this will happen at least once. It is not specific to one patch, so it is not like I am only having the problem on one particular lead or rhythm patch, it seems to be random, and bloody annoying. What is the likely cause, and how do i get past this issue please? Also I'll piggy back this issue. I managed to lose a power supply for my HD at a gig recently. I own two 500X models, so I have a spare, however it means I do not have one for each unit, so if I need to send one in for repairs (again!) it will mean that my backup will not have a power supply. I have at least 5 other Line 6 power supplies here, for my JTV guitars, recharging the batteries... but I think they are the wrong voltage / current for the HD, or will they work? As far as I am aware the chargers for the JTV batteries are DC output, where the Pod needs AC output, however when I looked on eBay for a spare, the ads seem to say the same supply will power the variax as well as the floor pods and pedals, so I just want to clarify rather than risk cooking a foot controller. The local store has no clue, as I have already asked them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
