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.

ayun! sige try ko to sa week end. i think same approach din sila ng marhsall. salamat boss chino!  :)

Update:
Tried it again pero wala pa rin sound na lumabas, this time on a marshall valvestate.  :eek:

Instead of searching for what to buy next, why not search for what to learn next?

Hi. I think you need a DAW.

finally was able to make it work,
kpag sinaksak mo yung usb cable from hd500x to PC, and pagka install mo ng driver,
your hd500x becomes your sound card, so yung speaker mo is i-plug mo nlang sa hd500x mo sa "phones"
haha

ayun DAW nlang need ko for recording,.

 :wave: Question ulit,

gusto ko i-try na i combine yung analogs ko sa hd500x..
question is paano ang dapat kong gawin...

eto analogs ko

GT2 Sansamp - ShredHead - Ibanez TS Mini - Phase 90 Script - Boss PS6 Harmonist - Zoom ms50g

maaring redundant na yung ibang analogs pero gusto ko sila itry lahat,

ano po ba ang maaring pros and cons? and ano ang dapat kong gawin para maiset ko sila ng maayos?

salamat po sa sasagot ^_^

Hi Boys and Girls,

I'm planning to buy the Helix FX and nabasa ko sa ibang forums na medyo inherent daw ang noise/hiss/hum kapag gumagamit ng 4-cable method on other Helix/POD units. How do you guys and gals manage the unwanted sound for the 4 cable method? Parang hindi ata ideal para sa kin gumamit nung mga hum eliminator kasi dagdag expense nanaman sya. hehe

I plan to use it on a Vox AV30 amp na may series (i think) effects loop.

Thanks,

Maybe I'm wrong here but I think the power supplies is where L6 has been cutting corners since the POD HD. For the longest time they used transformer based PSUs for the POD, POD2.0, and POD XT but when they came out with the HD500, I was surprised that they opted for a switching psu.

AFAIK, the only real isolation is one that comes from transformers and moving towards a switching psu has made Line 6 products noisier. My HD500X is more than enough for me feature-wise but the digital whine that comes from the unit in venues that have bad filtering can sometimes.be annoying.

Oh ok. Salamat sa inputs. I rarely do gigs so sana i don't get much of that noise from the power outlets sa bahay.

So its been a few days since nabili ko yung HX Effects and here are my thoughts...

Out of the box, there are 16 presets at parang isa o dalawang preset lang ang usable for my style of playing.  Meron rin bass and acoustic presets. Yung Korg AX1G
 (bought in 2000) and Digitech RP150 (bought in 2008) ko around 10 - 20 usable presets kaagad ang pwede magamit.

So here we go...stomp box mode. First preset i did was a combination of a "Klon", "Timmy" and a Plate Reverb. Plugged it in front of my Micro Terror with 2x12s. Haha i never had the chance to plug into a real Klon, Timmy and an actual Plate Reverb pero that HX Effects emulation sounds really good to my ears.

Next preset i did was a modulation preset featuring a Leslie Speaker emulation. Used two amps for this one (Micro Terror and Vox AV30) para stereo. I'm impressed.

As for editing presets...madali lang mag edit although hassle mag lagay ng pangalan ng preset kasi you have to turn the knobs for the letters. Hindi ko pa nasusubukan yung ibang features like 4 cable method, looper, separate effects for left and right amps and wala pa akong expression pedal so i think i've barely scratched the surface for this one. I was hoping for a 12 string guitar emulator pero meron naman akong Digitech Mosaic so no issues there.

So far, tinago ko muna yung iba kong pedals and my current set-up is Guitar -> Orange Two Stroke Boost EQ -> HX Effects -> in front of Micro Terror and Vox AV30.

Next up: dialing rockstar inspired presets :)

I'm loving the Treble Booster update sa Helix. When used in front of an "on the edge of break-up" AC30 TB voiced amp....INSTANT BRIAN MAY!!!
