Pedal 2 Input in HD500X

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I have had the 500X for awhile now and I am really enjoying it!! I've been surprised at how well all of the pedals are done and they really emulate some good sounds of outrageously priced pedals. There is one pedal that I have had trouble replicating though and that is the micro pog. I tried the pitch up and a bass octaves paired together but the sound was unclear and it didn't balance out. Then I paired 2 smart harmonies together (using the major scale setting and one with +6 and the other with -6 shift) and it was better but still not full enough. Both also were shifting the pitch really odd and they were giving me some trouble. So, I was thinking about purchasing an actual micro pog and putting it in the pedal 2 input on the board. I was just wondering how that thing worked in the first place and even if I could properly place a micro pog in my chain whilst using the 500X.

Thanks for the input guys!!

Nope, the pedal 2 input requires a special pedal that controls a 10k potentiometer. You'll need to plug the mico pog into the FX send/RX loop of the HD500X, using the FX Loop block in the process. But at least you can now put anywhere in the chain you want.

Buy a digitech iStomp pedal. It has a few different pitch shifters and they keep clearing them out online for $40. One is called "swing shift" and it may be just what you want.
