Global EQ on HD500
by medbad5150 on 2013-01-12 09:25:52.8530

Started a thread recently about HD500 being to bassy and boomy. Many googles later I found a snippet of article to adjust the Global EQ. I have also google this but search results always bring up same subjuct." Factory Reset". The person didn't mention how to adjust the global EQ settings.

Now I have seen a thread saying Global EQ for all patches is not possible. Can someone please put me clear on this. If possible how can it be done. I have found global settings on HD500 but where is section to adjust and lower bass signals.

This pedal is killing me, I have had it for about 4 months and recently went back to my GT-10 in frustration, even though the amps ( without the bass) are vastly superior.

Many thanks for any help  but I will keep googling anyway..

There is no global EQ on the HD500. EQ is done on a per-patch basis. To remove 'boominess', one effective method is to use LoCut parameter associated with the CAB selection. To access this, see page 4 of 5 in the Amp Edit pages on the HD500.

You're a diamond mate, I'm on it. Many thanks. Stupid to not have Gobal EQ but there you go.

I use a GLX 10-band EQ stompbox in the effectloop at the end of the chain in all my patches.

This way I effectively have a global EQ. It works really well for me.

I can also use it to attenuate the volume when at home. That way I don't need the LV mode on my DT-25.

I know it's not ideal because you should ultimately attenuate between the power amp and the speaker but it sounds pretty good anyway.

Many thanks for all help, sounds tighter and better between 120-160 on Low Cut. Now just got to figure what the hell Thump does..
