The big bottom amp model was based off a rectifier, with some changes. The recto model on the HD500 (and the rest of the series) sounds pretty similar to it, but with a different gain characteristic. You can change it back by putting a couple effects in front of the amp, and tadaah! Big bottom recreated! It also has the most ridiculous bottom end ever, so it's a very good replacement. Sounds like a truck smashing into you at high speeds.

I use the boost compressor first, with the bass knob turned to 20% and compression turned to 50%, then a gate with the release set to 15% and the threshold set so it's quiet when not playing, and it doesn't hiss when moving the fingers or anything. Then there's a Screamer with bass and treble at 50% and tone all the way up, drive on 20%, output on full (both the pedals have output on full), then another gate with release time on 0% and threshold set a little higher than the first gate. Then i adjust the amp gain until it's good, and that's it! Big Bottom was good because it did a couple things for you, and you couldn't do it with the limitations of the pods of the time, but the pod HD series are flexible enough to let you go beyond it. I don't really miss the big bottom amp model anymore. There are tweaks and stuff that need to be done with firmware releases, but it's really good already

why? the HD500 has the dedicated foot controller/layouts, I have mine sitting on my pedaltrain 2 flight case under my computer, it's insanely easy to reach. No idea why someone would prefer the POD.

Anywho, audio examples of the HD500 in a metal setting are up! I've started a new thread, check out Molest The Episcopate for samples too!

I would personally prefer it simply because my main use for the hd500 at the moment is mainly for at home practice and scratch tracks. My foot has literally never touched this thing... like-wise, I don't ever use the foot controller and haven't really used the looper besides screwing around once or twice, because if I want to loop something, I'd simply record it into my DAW and do that there. All of the features that make it great for live use are completely wasted on me.

Awesome tones you got there man!

thats my today lead tone for me.

and i agree, my foot has never seen my pod either... as long as it has the same dsp as the 500 i will probably still trade for one.

With the new desktop POD I've started doubting... Would you be able to plug the desktop version into a power amp&cabs as well, or would you be able to run it straight into the PA through XLR-outs like you're able to on the other HD series?

hmm For the past few months, altho the HD500 is good, ive been itching for a really good real tube amp to use for my main tones, and the HD500 for effects.. Really close to buying a Carvin Legacy II, or the new Carvin V3M.. and still might, but this week I've really been messing around with the HD500 a lot more with the amp models, and it can get some really good tones..

I switched my speaker from a Celestion Greenback to an Eminence Lil'Texas I had laying around in the closet, and wow the HD500 really picked up. Its a beast now, I hate overusing an expression of "like a blanket covering the amp"
