A MIDI Controller for the Line 6 POD HD500 Guitar Multi-Effects Processor

Title for
Line 6 POD HD500 Guitar Multi-Effects Processor

Guitarist and MIDI Designer Pro user François Desnoyers has been one of the most influential people in the MIDI Designer Community. Features from his suggestion list are still being implemented in every MIDI Designer release, and his international French is behind the French App Store text. But as you can see from his layouts, he’s serious about making MIDI Controllers, like this one for the Line 6 HD500.

The HD500 does not allow for a lot of MIDI control. Even so, François solves one of the biggest problems with the interface, which is allowing direct, visible access to the presets:

Having to rely on a reference grid to identify presets was not very pleasant. I decided to reproduce most of SETLIST panels on pages.

You can mix and match pages from this layout with those for the Line 6 DT50 Amp Controller. This way you can control both your FX and your amp from the same device. Sweet!
