What is an H5S file?
An H5S file is a set list created by Line 6 POD HD500 Edit, a preset editor for the POD HD500 guitar multi-effects pedal. It contains up to 64 effect presets, which can be transferred to the POD HD500. Each preset consists of FX, AMPS, Mixer, and Controllers settings.
The POD HD500 guitar pedal is a device that electric guitarists use to modify their instruments' sound. POD HD500 Edit is a desktop PC program that allows guitarists to create and organize presets for the POD HD500 pedal.
One way guitarists can organize presets is by grouping them within a set list. Each set list typically contains presets for a particular performance, listed in the order in which the guitarist intends to use them during that performance. This allows the guitarist to quickly advance through the set list's presets while performing.
To save a set list in POD HD500 Edit, guitarists select File → Save Setlist As.... By default, POD HD500 Edit saves set lists in the following locations:
- Windows: ~/My Documents/Line 6/Tones/POD HD500 Edit/Setlists
- Mac: ~/Documents/Line 6/Tones/POD HD500 Edit/Setlists
NOTE: In POD HD500X Edit (the preset editing app for the POD HD500X), the .5XS format replaced the H5B format.
