  1. [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.
  2. 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.
  3. I use the Tech 21 Deuce Deluxe for both guitar and bass.
  4. 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.
  5. The ones I bought from Choptones are fantastic. https://www.choptones.com/collections/cabinets-ir/products/bass-essentials-vol1-cabinet-ir
  6. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I just put one of these wireless receivers into the aux input and connect wirelessly to stream audio. Makes it super simple. You will of course need a 1/4” adapter.
  10. @luca5xAwesome! Glad you found something you like. The IRs work differently than the presets (.pgp files). They will be .wav files and you’ll use Pod Go Edit to import those into the Impulse Response folder. Once there, you will use them to create or modify existing presets. For example, take one of the stock bass presets and replace the cabinet with the Choptones IR. You’ll be amazed at the difference. Your Cliff tribute pack probably also came with an IR or two that you are free to use with other presets. The Bass Essentials pack has a lot of options though and it’s only $11 right now.
  11. I think you'll have better luck with new bass cabinet IRs than presets. I just bought a pack from Choptones that sound fantastic (they're on sale right now too). I wasn't too impressed with the stock bass presets either. Take anyone of the stock bass presets and replace the cab with one of the Choptones IRs and the difference is night and day.
  12. I just ordered a Tech 21 Deuce Deluxe and have high hopes for it. Price is in between the Headrush and the powercab. It has some good reviews. See this discussion for more info. I really like that it works with a bass too. I tried the Headrush units (both the 108 and the 112) and didn’t like them at all. They were very bassy and muffled sounding. That was with a Headrush unit though and I didn’t put a lot of effort into it like some here have. I currently use the power amp in of the Katana Artist mkii and it sounds pretty good.
  13. I just happen to already have the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 Ohms. Would the Pod Go really sound that much better with the 32 or 80 Ohm version? Enough to justify buying another set? From reading elsewhere, it sounded like the biggest difference would be that the 250 Ohm version would require more volume but would allow you to hear more detail. I also read that the lower Ohm version might sound a little more bassy but that ultimately it would just be a preference. What do you think? Anyone tried both versions? I see the response from the Beyerdynamics CS rep above but CS reps aren’t always as knowledgeable as we might hope. Thanks!
