Hd500x Live Wiring


Recommended Posts

I'll be using my 500X for some live gigging and wanted to bounce some things off of the viewing audience here .  Thanks for your help with past questions and thanks in advance for this one too.


I've used a Pod 2.0 for the last couple of years.  When playing live I would use the Left (mono) 1/4" out to a DI box, then XLR from the DI to the snake and 1/4" from the DI into my guitar amp which was being used ONLY as a personal monitor.


Using the 500X I'm assuming that I can forgo the DI box and XLR directly to the snake AND 1/4" to my monitor with little to no adjustments needed by the 500X.


Assuming I'm on the right track, I haven't yet designed any stereo patches, but should I use BOTH XLR outs anyway?  We have plenty of mixer space so that's not an issue.  We are NOT using a stereo setup with the sound gear so it will end up being mono anyway.  I guess my question here is, if only one XLR is used, does the HD know that and send both Left and Right signals through the one XLR line?
