HD500X and Stompboxes

Recommended Posts

Hi again. I was wondering if you guys tried putting something like the Zoom MS-50G in front or into the FX loop of the HD500? I do have a Morley Power Wah and putting it in front works quite well. I'm mainly interested with the distortions of the Zoom unit because even if they're not the best, I think they're better than the ones the HD has. I'm thinking of getting one but maybe that's a bit of an overkill? I've managed to dial in decent high gain amp sounds (thanks to zaphodboy's advice), but I just find the distortions lacking something and some are just not usable (honky fuzzes).

 

Also, i'm a brand new Line 6 product user and was wondering if there's any info about the next firmware updates (i.e. Plans, roadmap, etc)?

 

Thanks!

Distortions work ok into the pod, I've done it lots.

 

There are no roadmaps as such that we can see due to some of what would be on it likely being commercially sensitive... I.e. New products or new features - which would be very interesting to competitors.

 

Hope this helps

go find yourself that one good distortion pedal, stick it in front of the POD and be done with it :)

Thanks. I just thought there might some hints at what we should be expecting to be fixed (i.e. the unbearable fizz, etc). Something like expected fix for "known bugs" soft of thing, but I guess that fizz is by design. :-D

 

New features for the Pod HD lol.... that's a good one!

 

Yeah, I was kinda hoping there would be some additional/improvements on feature/models. Like from my old modeller (a Digitech RP500), the looper functionality was added on the second major version of the firmware if I remember correctly. Not that big of a deal, but it's good to know Digitech did something the customers wanted after choosing them over the competition. I guess not with a Line 6 though. :-)

Yes, but I'm now leaning towards getting an active speaker just to hear the HD500's full potential live.
