Question and Personal Concern:

Hindi ba harmful pra sa HD500x or any other MFX na wlang on and off button?
since i've owned my HD500x, hindi ko maiwasan mag worry whenever na bubunutin ko na yung adapter to turn it off,  :-(

hindi ba dpat ako mbahala since it's built that way?
I've seen some na naglagay ng extension cable na may on and off
(but i think it doesn't make sense)
kasi prang ganun din e, idk XD

How is that different from having a hardwired physical switch that cuts and feeds power without delay?

Those makers are experts. They wont design it that way if that is a flaw.

Imagine an electric fan. The switch there cancels the electricity for the fan to turn it off. Just like pulling its plug out of the outlet

If you want to get technical about it, as a USB interface I think it works well because unlike plugging it into another audio interface the signal gets twice the AD/DA conversion.
Unless you have an audio interface that has exceptional AD/DA conversion (eg. Universal Audio, Apogee, or Antelope Audio Zen Tour) that has better hardware you can be rest assured that as a standalone audio interface POD HD500/X is good enough.

I've used it both ways, one as a standalone interface and the other way around plugging it to a scarlett 2i4 using XLR mono/stereo outs and from what I heard, they sound fine enough but probably under a microscope you'll see the difference.
TL;DR if you want to use it as standalone interface I see no reason why it would not work decent enough.

Hello, question lang. Is there an easy way to copy effects or amp modules from one patch to another? I'm trying to make the amp model settings consistent kasi across all patches pero so far what happens is I need to redo all the settings per patch

single effect or amp? matagal na sa feature request yun and hindi na na implement for the hd500/x series. the only thing available is copying 1 entire patch to another location.

Hassle sayang. Amp sana. Kasi i have a set  combination of 2 amps for all patches so I can go into a clean unelected tone in any of the patches. I guess kelangan na lang kopyahin bawat patch. This feature used to be present in the pod xt live

ask lang, san ba ok magpacheck/repair ng hd300? isa na siyang malaking guitar tuner as of now. :cry: I haven't used mine for almost a year (busy sa work) and nung ginamit ko walang output... minsan meron pero nagpuputol putol (have to strum the strings so hard para tumunog pero putol putol yung sound) mas madalas walang tunog...

How do you guys dial out the fizz in the 500x?

if i remember it right, EQ adjustments. look for Peter Hanmer's demo on youtube. he did a series of videos for Marshall Music SA

Yeah, I watched that nga and it seems to work well. Only problem I have with that approach is that it takes another FX block slot. Tried using the global EQ and it's quite subtle.

I'm also wondering whether it's really fizz I'm hearing or clipping. For reference, I plug into a Mackie VLZ3 that goes into a pair of Samson monitors. I'll play around with it some more and let you guys know.

May nagplug na ba dito ng pod nila sa fx return ng amp para ma-bypass yung preamp ng amp? Sinubukan ko kasi last night pero walang tunog na lumabas. Anyone who can enlighten me? :eek:

I see. Hindi lang ako familiar sa topology or circuit design ng Marshall MG na head.. Pero natry ko dati mag plug ng HD500 sa FX Send ng Blackstar HT-20 (Guitar was plugged sa Input ng HD500). Wala rin tunog, yun pala kailangan may naka plug pa rin sa main input jack nung Blackstar kahit dummy plug lang, para maging operational yung buong amp.
