Would A New Hd500x Already Have V. 2.0 In It?

Recommended Posts

If I buy a 500x from a high-volume dealer; GC, Musicians Friend, Music 123, would it already have version 2.0 loaded in it?  I'll be challenged just trying to learn all the settings and finding my sound.  So, I'm thinking this could immediately save me from purchasing a midi cord and figuring out how to do all the upgrade functions.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Why don't you call them and ask.  Sweetwater is the most likely one to do it for you.  I have had great luck with them.  If you don't ask you will probably get it with downrev firmware installed and you will have to upgrade yourself (with the supplied USB cable)

there is no such update. 1.2 is the latest on HD500x.

nearly all the updates since release have to do with L6LINK anyway...

so the sounds and features of it by itself would be the same.

having said that, I'm not certain what firmware it will ship with...

i'm merely stating that I don't think it would be noticeable unless you are using a DT amp or stagesource speaker setup.

Everything above, plus the upgrade uses the included USB cable, not midi, so that's a fairly simple process. Don't fret.

The latest Pod HD firmware is v1.2. There is no v2.0.

 

There is a v2.0 for the JTV firmware, and a v2.01 for Workbench HD. Perhaps that is what you are thinking of?

Updating a POD HD is so easy, even a caveman could do it... I wouldn't worry about it. But the post above is correct - no MIDI cable is needed. It's just plain ol' USB.
