  1. Hi, I consider getting a Pod Go as a fly rig. Can anybody tell me how well it is built and if it performs reliable. I am a touring musician with occasional fly in gigs and therefore want a lightweight and sturdy rig. Playing a wide range of shows (festivals, tv performances, headline shows etc) I also considered building a board around the HX stomp, but cost is a factor, and a pedalboard with all its components would be overkill. Maybe someone that heavily uses the Pod Go can help me.
  2. thank you very much! I also made that experience, I also have a kemper and there are situation where one shines more as the other. Right now I am more looking for a live touring setup (when we hopefully get to play gigs again). Just getting both to try them out will the way to go I guess. as you can see I went through a lot of gear haha .. while I got the sounds I like out of all of them it were most of the time usability issues, that kept me for keeping them for live use. I somehow always came back to the helix when looking for an all in one, flexible live setup, that must be a sign haha. As you may have read, I now have a hx stomp again. In my older post I described that I had faulty units. This problem has been solved, both times I got them right after release with the first batch and had bad luck. Have the stomp for a year now without any problems. thanks for your help! these are also the main concerns I have with the fm3. The fact the helix seems more immediate and like touching the "real" pedals is a big pro for me. On the hx stomp its the first time I have fun building patches, where as on the other modellers it felt like work. thank you for your reply! yeah these are also the problems I ran into when I had the AX8. I really love this forum, so much great advice, thank you all! I think the helix is the better option for me, maybe I'll get a chance to try the axe, but otherwise I will go for helix.
  3. This topic has surely been brought up a lot of times, but how does the Helix with the current firmware 2.90 and its improvements compare (soundwise) to the axe? I am currently a Hx Stomp user (had an AX8 before, but sold it because it was frustrating to program and use) and have been very statisfied with the results I got lately and I got very close to the AX8. since the fractal FM3 is coming out and I cant decide wheter to get the helix floor (for more flexibility, the stomp isnt enough for me anymore) or the the fractal, (because a lot of people praise the modelling of the axe fx 3) I wanna ask if someone has both and if there really is such a big difference, or if you wouldnt even notice with a little bit of tweaking.
  4. Thanks your your respone, sounds great, do you have a stomp or a floor? yeah, I always keep a little preamp and cabsim in my pocket as a backup! Luckily never needes it but would get me through the gig.
  5. The HX Stomp had broken outputs where I was just getting noise and the HX Effects had a faulty footswitch which caused the unit to freeze, but I am still not giving up on line6 since I hear so many great things! thanks a lot!
  6. Hey there! so I wanted to ask, what are your experiences in the long run with the helix, especially in professional use/touring? Right now I am a Kemper + pedalboard player as well as the Boss GT 1000, but never got quite statisfied. But having tried the helix more recently I was very happy with the sounds I got as well as the flexibility. Since I am professionally gigging musician my question is: Did you have any major issues, freezing, parts breaking, errors during shows, total dropouts etc. I had a HX Stomp and a HX Effects, both times I had the bad luck of a faulty unit. Gear failure just must not happen for me. So what are the opinions on the helix of the touring musicians out here, since the helix has been out for a few years? (Sound, reliability, build quality) :)
  7. already tried that, it is still there, on all outputs, amp and speaker units. maybe its a deffective unit. I will return it.
  8. so I recently got a hx stomp, tried it out, everything was working fine and it was dead silent, then I updated to the new firmware and all of a sudden got this buzz noise (its attachedto this post). it goes away after some time, but comes back. I also tried different power supplies and outlets , its always the same result, does anybody else have this problem, it seems like a software issue, since it was working fine before doing the update. hx stomp buzz.mp3
