POD Go 1.11 / POD Go Edit 1.11
POD Go MUST be updated to firmware 1.11 or higher in order to properly communicate with POD Go Edit. 1.11 also includes general bug fixes and improvements.
Updating to 1.11
STEP 1—Installing POD Go Edit 1.11
- Log onto line6.com, download, and install POD Go Edit 1.11:
STEP 2—Updating POD Go
- Connect POD Go to your Mac or PC via USB and turn it on.
- Launch the version of POD Go Edit you installed in Step 1 above.
- Click the gear at the bottom of the window, then Preferences to check for updates.
- Log into your Line 6 account. A dialog panel appears, reading "An update is available for your POD Go. Would you like to update now?"
- Click "Update now." POD Go Edit asks if you want to create a backup of your existing user presets. Click "OK" and then "Create Backup." Once the backup is completed, click "OK."
- Carefully read the End User License Agreement (haaa hahaha!) and click "OK."
- Click "Update." While updating, POD Go's display slowly fades to gray. Once the update is complete, POD Go restarts automatically.

Known Issues in 1.11
- On rare occasions, audio can be lost if POD Go is powered on while a connected Mac/PC is passing audio via USB
- Pitch/Synth > Simple Pitch and Dual Pitch can exhibit subtle artifacts when the Delay parameter is set between 0.4 and 0.7 ms
- Sending a MIDI CC60 or CC61 message from your computer to control the Looper can sometimes cause POD Go to become unresponsive
- Sending a MIDI CC68 message followed immediately by a PC message from your computer can sometimes cause POD Go's audio to mute
- When a block is added from POD Go Edit, footswitches 5 and 6 may not immediately appear as if they're auto-assigned (even though they are)
- While on the Save screen, holding ACTION and pressing SAVE does not save the preset to Factory > 32D New Preset
- POD Go does not need a driver to work with your Mac; just plug in and go. However, it is currently limited to a sample rate of 48kHz. Line 6 is working carefully with Apple and will provide a driver that supports sample rates up to 96kHz
