  1. Using Pod Go Edit you see 3 folders, Factory, User and Impluses., typically pink colored by default. Then you use one of these IR's instead of a cab inside the Cab block. The purchased IR package comes with various folders for the type of guitar you are using. There is an electric, an acoustic with a magnetic pickup and an acoustic with Piezo each with various mic distances. I didn't have much luck with the first 2, maybe with some tweaking it could work. But Piezo with a Takamine really works. Pod Go signal chain is then: IR - Preamp - Volume - 3band comp - Parametric EQ - Chamber reverb tg
  2. I use a Takamine Acoustic- Electric with usual Piezo pickup. Purchased an acoustic IR from 3 Sigma audio (Taylor 524) for about 10 USD, which Pod Go can read. Added some light Room reverb and Compression. Use also an EQ for a volume boost because acoustic IR's are usually less loud than normal electric guitar patches. The sound is UNBELIEVABLE. Like a mic-d acoustic in a professional studio, zero feedback, no tinny Piezo (Ovation) type sound. tg
  3. Hey guys - changing to the Ribbon 4038 really helped warm it up. Thanks all, especially kraM1t.
  4. All, I am using POD Go as an interface for online jamming with Jamkazam. I need to have some voice chat capability which has been difficult to achieve with Jamkazam's setup. Most of the Jamkazam forums say - use an interface like a Focusrite. I need the Pod Go to be the interface. Anyone know if I can use the Pod Go Aux In with a microphone? I assume it has to be a dynamic microphone because no phantom power is available on the Go. Not looking for any type of sound quality - it just has to be very basic allowing chat capabilities with proper XLR to TRS adaptor to not damage the Pod Go (stereo Aux input). Thanks! trainguy
  5. Hey Line 6, how about an update to resolve this issue? Shouldn’t the headphone sound be similar to an FRFR speaker so we can dial up our sounds well into the night?
  6. Interesting voxman55 - writing from Montreal, Canada, our electricity is generated pretty close to here and has been quite regular. I have not actually measured the voltage/current stability though. Next time the fizz comes, I'll check if the dishwasher is on, or other equipment. Thanks! tg

    Aux in?

    Can I use a dynamic microphone (so no phantom power needed) in the Pod Go's aux input?
  8. Hi guys, A month later, fuzziness is back. Maybe angelcaro is on to something...
  9. Not related, but any idea why when I search this site for content I started or posted in, most of the time I get zero results? tg
  10. And we are back - sounds great again, and no idea why. Much less fizz, warmer overdrive. tg
  11. Nope. Played on same equipment 2 times since, but on different presets. Lots if tweaking so sound was alright, but this is entirely a crapshoot. Tried acoustic fully unplugged and it sounds great every time... tg
  12. All, Recently started using Pod Go with Cakewalk by Bandlab and I need to choose a new laptop. For recordings with approximately 4 midi tracks and 4 audio tracks, can you suggest the laptop specs that will make this work well? So far I have had pretty good results for 2-3 audio track recordings up to about 1 minute long using Asus Core i5, 1.6 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, , and ASIO drivers but this PC is no longer available to me. I have not used any plugins or Midi yet. Can I drop to Core i3 with similar other specs? All suggestions welcome... tg
  13. Thanks silverhead. Not too far from Ontario myself (Montreal)... No luck. Sound continues to be fuzzy with Global EQ turned off. I have also recorded some clips into Audacity, backed up my settings with POD Go Edit, did a factory reset and compared sounds before and after the reset. It seems to me the reset made no difference for 3 tested presets. The sound continues to be lousy - virtually unusable. Tried these same headphones wired into iPhone - no issues, still sound as good as before using Spotify. Something about the Pod Go's interaction with these headphones has changed. I have attached a clip of sound 04B as shipped from Pod Go with my recent settings.04B current oct 26.wav American Fender Strat, Bridge pickup, volume and tones to 10. Is this normal? And it sounds even worse with volume dropped to about 7.
  14. I use the Venue headphones wired with Pod Go, not with Bluetooth. I may have inadvertently messed around with Global EQ, not sure. The 5 superimposed curves are a bit of a mystery to me. Is there a headphone setting I can alter on the Pod Go? I am perplexed that using the GO as the speaker for my DAW gives the expected warm sound, but using the preset and playing live at the same time as the playback - fizzy. tg
  15. Hi all, Using POD Go through Skullcandy Venue headphones, with 3.5mm wire for last several months. Sound is OK, and quite bassy, to be expected. In last 3-4 days, the sound through the headphones has gotten extremely fizzy and just terrible, especially using any overdrive or distortion. If I compare sounds that I am playing live on the guitar with very similar patches coming in through USB and my DAW, the USB sounds from 1 week ago are perfect, warm etc, but the new (live) sound is very fizzy. Any suggestions? tg
