Pod hd desktop with fbv2

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have seen the compatibility  between pod hd and the fbv products and I understand that the fbv2 is not compatible with the pod hd desktop. But I wanted to know what does really happen when we connect those 2, is it (fbv2) not going to be recognised? Is it (fbv2) not going to be turned on at all? Or is it (the pod) going to do unwanted things when the buttons are pressed? Has anyone tried this before? Is it not recommended at all?

 

I only want to know out of curiosity, and because I would certainly love to travel with that one rather than the express mk2 (it's much smaller and for rehearsing I only need to switch presets).

 

Cheers!

Hmmmm, I would like to know this as well.  I only switch between four presets and this might do it for me too.  I also have a PODHD Desktop.

Everything I've read about this says it won't work with the PODHD Desktop or any of the PODHD devices.  It'd be nice if it did.  With it's limited capabilities it still does what I need and is a lot smaller.

I agree, and if the scenario is the same as you mention (which is exactly the same for me), just switching to the next or the previous patch is more than enough, and it would fit in its gigbag.

Except the PODHD Desktop doesn't have a midi connection.

 

btw - the other pedals also get their power from the PODHD.  More than likely the power connections are the same.  But the signals to changes patches are different and don't work.  

 

Bottom line is: Line6 says it doesn't work and I'm not going to try it.

Interestingly, the FBV4 doesn't seem to be listed as compatible or incompatible with the HD series. Not sure that one is as small as you (we) might like anyway.

It would be nice if a Line6 engineer could give us an opinion (long shot probably). But again, this is just out of curiosity. If there is someone out there who has tried it we would love to know the outcome, or if there are wiring diagrams for these I could have a look and maybe buy a used one and try (so we can be sure there is no current/electrical issue).
