LINE6 POD HD500 Layout (MDP2) by fdesnoyers

Line6
We're ecstatic to have these Line 6 layouts for guitarists. This entry includes two layouts by Master Designer François Desnoyers: one that "covers all controls defined in LINE6 official documentation for POD HD500 (Firmware version 2.62.)" And another "covering POD HD500 and GR55 MIDI controls in LIVE situation." These layouts get a lot of love from MIDI Designer users, and they look good and make a guitar rig hum. Check the notes for another layout that covers the DT50 amp, also by Line 6.

LINE6 DT50 LAYOUT MDP2 by fdesnoyers

Line6
The Line 6 DT50 212 Guitar Combo Amp is an awesome piece of gear: it has "an amplification system that is able to configure and adapt its analog components and digital modeling in real time. This means that when you select a model, the DT50 Amp instantly reconfigures the tube power section to provide the optimal tone. The digital section monitors the tube power section and can adjust the DSP in real-time." However, controlling it is a beast... before Master Layout Designer François Desnoyer created this powerful MIDI Designer layout. It's been completely refactored for MDP2 to have only two pages and 72 controls, but don't underestimate this one: it packs a wallop. The version before MDP2 required 6 pages and 227 controls!

LAYOUT for PODHD500/DT50/GR55/NOVA System/NOVA Drive/GR55 (MDP2) by fdesnoyers

TC Electronic
Mixing and matching gear is essential for getting a guitar rig that reflects your individual style and sound. For a guitarist, matching the Pod HD500 and DT50 from Line 6 with the TC Electronic NDR-1 NOVA Drive and the Roland GR55 makes a lot of sense. Hence this layout by Master Layout Designer François Desnoyers. It's completely revamped for MDP2 to use just two pages, but it packs a huge punch. We're very lucky to have it!

TC Electronic NOVA DRIVE and NOVA System Layout (MDP2 Version) by fdesnoyers

TC Electronic
TC Electronic offers a great OD/Distortion pedal (NOVA Drive) and multi-effects pedalboard (NOVA System) that offers best of both worlds: analog circuitry AND programmable presets.

NOVA System is derived from G-SYSTEM. If you're looking at superb sound quality over quantity, this is the way to go for LIVE situation.
