  1. Genuinely away to make a cup of tea and have a good read of this, love a new manual :D :D
  2. Did you notice it happens when you go in/out of the tuner? I know that was an issue for a lot of people
  3. A few retailers were advertising early dates in order to secure preorders, but L6 have said April was the target, but production/work restrictions in China might cause that to slip - hopefully not too far! :)

    POD Go Edit

    I think this was a concept the Firehawk explored, with limited success. Changing patches via bluetooth was too laggy, connection stability was an issue too. No major manufacturer has a decent multifx with bluetooth or a mobile app, as far as I can remember. TC have their toneprint which isn't quite the same thing, Zoom have a very basic pedal with bluetooth, and a few have amps with bluetooth or 2.4Ghz connections, but incorporating it into a giant amp box in comparison to a tiny pedal is probably simpler and cheaper, I would imagine.). Boss, L6, Mooer, Zoom, Kemper, Headrush - that none of them have really implemented it other than in a testing-the-water kind of way suggests the demand for it maybe just isn't there right now? I preferred to set up my patches with the ipad Firehawk editor over bluetooth, but it was utterly useless in a live setting, and frankly don't think I'll miss it going forward. I suspect your prophecy on the death of the computer is a long way off too. If all else fails and you really want that deep edit, but mobile, try a Surface?

    Pc/Mac Editor

    Sorry, but 5 years ago when the FH was released, L6 were pretty clear that it was aimed at the mobile user, and there would not be a PC editor. The PodGo effectively discontinues the Fh in all but name, so I fear the chances of any major development for the FH are pretty much zero.

    Interesting that it says there it can be a momentary FS - be cool if it could be a non-latching effect control. I have a TC Spark booster atm that I use for fills which is momentary, so an extra FS that could fulfill this would be ace.

    In his first-look video, Paul Hindmarsh said that 2 further footswitches can be added using a y-cable to the EXP2 - what can these be set to control?
  8. https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Gator-G-TOUR-PEDALBOARD-SM-Small-Pedal-Board-With-Case/XWU On sale now from Gear4Music, usually retails at £150+ - think there's a new generation due, thus the clearout.

    In light of this, gear4music in the Uk have a great atm on this pedalboard that'd be a perfect size, just ordered one myself: https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Gator-G-TOUR-PEDALBOARD-SM-Small-Pedal-Board-With-Case/XWU Usually at least £150. The usable height is only listed at 3", vs the PodGo's 3.5", but I imagine the foam will compress at least a half inch?

    Great, thank you! Have found there's always "A Way" to get the rubber feet off regardless if its designed to or not lol
  11. I've had the FHFX since release, and played hundreds of shows with it. I never once have bought anything on the basis of 'what it might do in the future', that idea is frankly ludicrous. I used the BT feature plenty at first, and don't think I've touched it or opened the app in over a year. Without it, I wouldn't have gotten as settled with the sounds as quickly as I did - in a working musical environment, saying 'Stop! I need to get my laptop out and play with this preset' is not viable, but a quick tweak with an app is much, much less cumbersome. The Helix family has nailed the inbetween stage - the interface is so quick and simple, and the editor is great if you have a lot of time. Personally, my FHFX has been playing up a little (inevitable wear-and-tear on the footswitches) and I've been waiting for a FHFX-2, that hopefully incorporates some of the Helix's features, and that's why I have the Pod Go on order: it seems, to me, to be the natural Firehawk successor.

    POD Go FAQ

    Have preordered mine, but now have a form-factor question. It looks like the bottom may not be totally flat (seems like there are little legs/feet?), so is there enough flat surface on the bottom to allow this to be affixed to a pedal board? Hope so, but the picture attached gave me doubts...
  13. This is a brilliant find! I loved the idea with the barfoot buttons, but they were a bit of a rip off - have ordered a set of the white!
  14. Ooooooo someone's touchy! (And still wrong).
  15. I haven't actually, as they're not 'true copies' of the songs sound but rather variations adapted to suit how we play certain songs and EQ'd to suit my amp and guitar as well (eg my tone for AC/DC played on my Tele through a Fender amp would probably sound atrocious on an SG through a Marshall!) - Though 'crazy organ sound' from the tonecloud is the organ noise I use for Doors, Town Called Malice etc, it's pretty cool!
