Graphic EQ

Inspired by graphic eq pedals such as the MXR® ten band graphic equalizer which became an integral part of the live rig of Randy Rhoads

 

However, in HD500X having only 5 bands, and highest is 2.2kHz. Am I missing something how to use it, or is it really that way?

Kind of lame, but yes it's limited to only 5 band. Some would say it's all you really need for the frequency range of a guitar sound, but to fully shape it EQ wise with one instance, block, it seems limited. Guess it was all they could squeeze into the programming back then.

Is it so in HD500X that all FX have max 5 params, and so 10band eq comes as 5 band?

I guess not..

surely there is a limited number of available parameters per FX, but in this specific case the chosen frequency bands in the model are not only less than the inspired MXR equalizer. they are also different, ie: 80, 220, 440, 1100, 2200 Hz..

..however the first 2 bands (31.2 and 62.5) and the last 2 bands (8k and 16k) of the above MXR graphic eq would be quite useless for electric guitar in particular, the 4k missing band in the model could have been useful to tweak the very high end, but considering that you can combine two or more different EQ FXs in series, you can easily cover the whole spectrum of audible frequencies, if/when necessary.
