    Thanks for the advice, Plumb! Time to do some research.

    Bad news fellows.

    The time has come for me to part ways with my beloved hd500. I'm really only using it as a tuner right now, and its just taking up space under my desk between my sub and chair, so it deserves to go to a good home.

    That being said, I will be doing one last video with it to give you some insight on how I made my most recent patch as well as covering a few other things.

    Lastly, I won't really be watching this thread anymore, so if you do happen to have a question for me, please don't hesitate to pm me!

    Looks like you have a case of the LAMNTA. (Look at my new tube amp!)

    Mark my words; you will come back some day, You will. I give you less than 6 months before you start missing the POD, and when you compare it to the price of an Axe deodorant, you'll miss it even more.

    Me too. They don't care about what we ask for. I love my Pod but I want more. For 700€ I cannot pretend an AFX but there are still things to fix and to add. If I had the money I'd buy an Axe right now, Cliff cares about his customers and provides them cool features they couldn't even imagine.

    Is it just me or has the "original" HD series completely disappeared from the website? I was searching for the Bean and couldn't find it.

    Also I have been trying to decide between an HD500X and a normal HD bean. I'll only use it for home practice/recording, never for live use, but I'm a little bit skeptical of two things: first, the fact that the bean may run out of DSP power and that it will be discontinued by Line6 without no further updates. However the 200€ price difference is a major factor...

    Any thoughts? Does the Bean suit me well? Please bear in mind that I have never had one of these before. Can it record to the pc through USB? Does it run out of DSP easily? (I've read that you can't use dual amps with it, is it true?)

    TBH I'm getting tired of the POD as well. I really want to try a GSP1101, or a TC electronics system..

    Compare POD guitar amp modelers | Line 6

    I'd get the 500X. More processing power is never bad, and yes, it can do dual amps. Try finding a used 500 for cheaper, since it's almost the exact same product.

    You can record through USB, which is what I do.

    My only caveat is that you should use external cab impulse responses and/or a power amp VST, because the power amp modeling and cabs leave a lot to be desired.

    Thank you, I was really lost on the new website's layout. Do you think that, for what I will be using it for, the extra 200€ are worth it in comparison with the bean version? Home practice/recording really, no future plans for live use at all...

    Edit: Does anyone know how the HD Bean compares to the HD500 in terms of DSP?
