With many many thanks to fdesnoyers here is my setup for Pod 2.0. After seeing his designs for Line6 products I had to try Midi Designer.
I thought I would be able to build an interface for my HD-500 but I should have read fdesnoyers post more carefully. Very dissapointed I could only see patch change info transmitting from HD-500 but at least everything can be accessed from the HD-500 itself.
That was not the case with the Pod 2.0. Wish I had Midi Designer back when it was apart of my main rig. Not being able to access presence controls or bright switch among other things without a computer was a killer. I had to use only amp models that didnt include those missing functions to have full control if I was looking for sounds 'on the job'. Severely limited my options as almost all of the modelled amps have these.
Anyhoo here is my quicky setup..I only got Midi Designer yesterday (am quite sure I have some OCD haha) but sifting through Line6 midi implementation charts and endlessy jumping back to fdesnoyers layout (my 'owners manual'..thankyou again sensei!!) I think I have managed to include almost every possible function.
Main tab has preset list, main amp controls and simple FX enable/bypass.
Amp and Cab Selection
The 1st tab is for amp and cab sim selection. Although the buttons do work I find I have to select them multiple times before my Pod responds. Using the sliders is instant response but because Line6 used some weird ordering of FX/amps the slider isnt exactly intuitive
Next is the FX tab, which has the same problem with buttons and sliders.(Probably wrong place to ask but is this a bug or something I have gone about wrong?)
And finally my 'pedals' tab which I made due to not being able to fit anymore functions on FX page. Tried to make it into a big wah and volume pedal haha.
Touching the wah fader will turn the wah on so you need to hit on/off button a couple of times to turn it back off again. (is there a better way I could have done this?)
I wish I had this back when I used the Pod all the time. Found functions I never knew it could do..who knew the compressor was always available?? Have certainly never heard Line6 mention it nor has their foot controllers or software allowed it. I used to run a comp pedal into the Pod to use it with other FX!! Would have been nice to know without sifting through midi charts!
Can't thank you enough for such great software and many thanks again to fdesnoyers for the inspiration and layout to learn from. Hope someone else gets some use from this layout.
