Total newbie, integrating line6 gear

Recommended Posts

Got a JTV guitar and spider jam amp a couple of years ago. Recently added a MKII shortboard. I'm now in the process of purchasing a used pod hd500x.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

I would like to be able to assign guitar models and amp tones to a switch. I'm told by support that I can't do that with the shortboard-only assign amp tones.

But, I will be able to mix and save models and amp tones with the new pod hd500x.

Does that make the shortboard an un-needed piece of gear? Does it contribute anything to the equation, or is it superfluous with the addition of the pod hd500?

I don't play pro, I just like to like down tracks with the spider jam amp and play them for friends.

Yes, you can save everything, guitar from the JTV, amp(s) and effects into one patch on the 500. I can't think of a way you would integrate the shortboard in a way that would add anything so I would says it's 'un-needed'.
