  1. Despite the tips and everyones success here with the Boss FS-7, I'm not able to get it to work. I'm using the HX Stomp XL though. Not sure if that makes a difference. My problem is that I can only get one of the switches on the FS-7 to work. I don't think it's a problem with the FS-7 because sometimes it's the A switch that works and sometimes its the B switch that works after fiddling with the settings. Mode is set to momentary on the FS-7. The polarity doesn't seem to make a difference but at the moment it's on II. I'm connected to the Stomp through output B. FS Tip is set to FS7. FS Ring is set to FS8. Both polarities are set to inverted. FS7 is set to preset up and FS8 is set to preset down. The firmware is 3.15. Any ideas? UPDATE: Problem solved. I was using a TS and not a TRS cable. I really kind of wanted to use this to cycle between snapshots but a press of the switch always moves up or down by two snapshot numbers. It looks like the down movement is one and the up movement is the other. I wonder why preset movement doesn't have this issue. It works if I switch the FS-7 to latch mode but then the lights go on and off which doesn't make sense. I may just get one of those little mini two button switches.
  2. If I had to guess, the reasons for not adding additional blocks or showing DSP percentage are half truths. It's important for Line 6 to gain additional market with the Pod GO, not eat into their existing Helix market. I'm pretty sure that's exactly what these features would do. From a business perspective, it's important to have a low barrier to entry into the Line 6 modeling ecosystem and that's where the Pod GO comes in. Once users get proficient with it and start running into these limits, then it's time for them to upgrade to Helix. Displaying DSP percentage would enable people to more easily work around these limits. I'm ok with this. It's a business that needs to make good business decisions and I want them to thrive so they can continue to innovate.
  3. If you aren't looking for a lot of different sounds and you don't mind stomping different pedals and turning knobs on them and your amp to go from one to the other, then yes, I'd say the Pod GO is not right for you. I believe I've heard a lot of people say it sounds almost as good as the real gear but haven't really heard the claim that it sounds better. There are a lot of variables in the signal chain that affect sound quality so hard to make objective statements.
  4. Does this also apply if you're going into the return of an effects loop of a real amp?
  5. Maybe I can save someone from having to do a factory reset. I had this same problem today and figured out that the issue was that in Global Settings, I had to Return Type set to Aux instead of Return like it should have been. I forgot that Aux and Return share the same input and I had set it to Aux at some point to send external audio through. Changing Return Type to Return immediately fixed the problem.
  6. [SOLVED] I reached out to the app support and Tom Quayle responded with the suggestion that I re-calibrate the note detection after making the direct connection. I just didn't think about that since I thought that only applied to the microphone input.
  7. For those of you not familiar with it, Tom Quayle has recently released a really cool app called solo that helps with fretboard visualization and playing through changes. For example, you can pick a tune and a sequence of chord tones (1,3,5,7 for example) and it will listen to your playing and go from chord to chord, verifying that you have played the correct notes in the correct order. Lots of other stuff too but that's the basics. The app detects what you are playing by two different methods: by listening through your device's microphone or by direct connection to the device. The microphone method works but it's not perfect. I'd like to connect to my iPad from my POD Go to get the more precise note detection. However, I'm not able to figure out how to do that. I've tried the device's USB connection to a camera adapter (USB to lightning) and a 1/4" instrument to lightning cable coming from the left output and also trying it from the FX send output. I haven't been able to get either to work. Any pointers? I thought maybe there was something in the global settings I needed to change but no luck finding something that works so far. Thank you.
  8. I use the Tech 21 Deuce Deluxe for both guitar and bass.
  9. Yes. IRs are universal. I bought those and use them in my Pod Go and they made a world of difference on the bass presets. Enough so that I sold my bass amp.
  10. The ones I bought from Choptones are fantastic. https://www.choptones.com/collections/cabinets-ir/products/bass-essentials-vol1-cabinet-ir
  11. I haven't used it at a gig yet to say for sure but at home, it's pretty loud for practice just on nine o'clock. Check out this very long thread on the DD at the gear page for a whole lot more detail. https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/tech-21-deuce-deluxe-frfr-guitar-cab.2009436/
  12. I'll also add that a Tech 21 Deuce Deluxe is an outstanding FRFR cab to use with both bass and guitar. It was meant for both and sounds fantastic. I sold my bass amp as a result. Very affordable too.
  13. Welcome to the club! I’m a little confused. Your title says your amp sounds muffled but your last sentence says you’re playing out of studio monitors. If you were playing out of an amp, then cabs are supposed to be turned off as your real amp/cab serves that purpose. If you’re playing out of something that is supposed to be FRFR, like studio monitors, then the cab sims are meant to be turned on. If that’s the case and the sound is muffled, make sure the high cut on the cab or an eq block isn’t turned way down.
