  1. Exactly as you mentioned made me want to start the conversation. My Amp is set to FS 7. I don't prefer that clean tone so was wanting to hear what everyone had to say.
  2. Crisst, pretty sure I'm not on the same page with you. Is there something in settings I need to change? Hitting the mode switch brings me back to pedal board mode. Having transitioned from the 500X to this, am used to using presets more than snapshots so I understand the creating different presets to go to.
  3. Is anyone aware of a more efficient way to transition to "Stomp" mode to "Preset" mode besides stomping multiple buttons in order to get from one to the other like bypassing snapshot mode? For now,I have a stomp set to my amp for higher gain tones and turn it off to go from dirty to clean. Snapshots will not allow a different amp other than your main amp on the preset. Example: I like the Engl Fireball model but really enjoy a Fender model for a gritty clean tone. Sounds and personally experienced more tap dancing than necessary as opposed to stomping on the tuner stomp to bring you back to preset mode which is currently not possible. Thanks.
  4. Does anyone know if the Pod Go will get the capability to adjust axis's with microphones? Feel like this would be a huge win if possible but a disappointment not having the ability to do so. Not sure if it takes up a lot of DSP or not. Hopefully the Pod GoX will have it when it gets released.
  5. Would recommend keeping the 500X and adding a cabinet IR loaders pedal and pair that with it. I did exactly that and traded in my 500X and a couple extra bucks for a Pod Go and miss having the "open imagination" platform it offered. 6 blocks are locked in with the Pod Go leaving 4 open blocks for effects. If you like high gain, the amps need a ts808 for bite and attack. I regret trading my stuff in and should've bought an IR pedal to pair with it.
  6. Tbh, I'd suggest not to buy one and pick up a used 500X and pair that with an external cabinet impulse pedal (Mooer Radar, Hotone Omni IR, Two Notes Torpedo etc). When all said and done can be very similar in Price. Pod Go is a great First time unit if you're getting your feet wet in modeling amps. The Pod HD 500X can run parallel paths and do dual amps + cabs. Pod Go can not do that. 500X has 8 or 10 open blocks that you can anything you want in them. Pod go has 6 locked blocks and 4 open slots. If you like high gain, you need a tube screamer in your patch. Pod Go has no mic input. 500X has that. The cabinet IR pedal can get ya the mic's you want and where you want it. Pod Go allows distance and not axis adjustments.
  7. Have been actually communicating with an audio engineer that has really helped me out and improve my experience. I'm very much out of the loop as far as technology and gear to where old habits die hard. I started playing bass guitar first than guitar second so Solo's and full chords are not second nature. That being said, came from a time when you had a guitar, a cable and an amp and clicked on the lead channel. Letting the Amp carry the weight. Didn't even use or play with Tube screamers up until 4-5 years ago so you're spot on in the sense that EQ's have a lot to do with sound and tone as I never knew I needed it. When I was first tweaking the amps, I'd crank the gain up and got drive but everything else went out the window. Having the ts808 on constantly really tightened up the tone. The sweet spots I got were when gain/ drive was at 3, not 8. Hahaha.
  8. Since I purchased the 500X a few years back, have been in love with modeling and using Line 6 products. They are very user friendly, easy to use and it's really up to the user to create great tones. I really enjoy the Custom Tones forum to upload other individuals patches. One thing I'm disappointed about though is a lack of modern tone that just rips, bites and cuts through mixes. Feel like there's a big emphasis on popular and classic when there is much more variety to be had. There's a Peavey 5150 in presets but no JSX which was a phenomenal sounding head. Options for Mesa Boogie products are available but no Randall products. Dimebag Darrell played Randall and is known widely around the world for his shredding. Scott Ian played Randall, Kirk Hammett plays Randall. Even Laney heads would be cool. Would love to see a Framus Cobra in the arsenal someday as well. Also, I see a lot of options for Celestion speakers but Eminence makes fairly good speakers as well.
