  1. Further to my last post I found the email response I had from Beyerdynamics: My Question was sent to help@beyerdynamic.com: (this was based on the erroneous info that the Pod Go output impedance was 63 Ohms when in fact it's 32 Ohms - so the response is arguably even more relevant) Hi guys, I wonder if you can advise me please as I’m confused by what appear to be 5 different versions of the Beyerdynamic DT770 pros headphones. 16 Ohm 32 Ohm 80 Ohm (Studio & monitor versions?) 250 Ohm. I want to use this for the headphone input of my new Line 6 Pod Go guitar multi-effects processor that has a headphone output impedance of 63 Ohms but also use on my desktop PC computer for music etc. So I'm completely confused & don't want to buy the wrong ones. Ideally, a volume control would be useful – I’m also confused re the 80 Ohm as there seems to be Studio and Monitor versions – I think the only difference is that the Monitor variant appears to have a (volume?) control on the cable – do I have that right? As far as I’m aware this seems to be the only version with this control. If so, this could be very useful for plugging into my computer too, so I can easily control volume. I’d appreciate any clarification & advice you can give me, thanks. I’m guessing the 80 Ohm Monitor version with the volume control (is it a volume control) on the cable would be the best sounding/best fit for my needs but I’m just not sure Response: thank you for your mail. I really would recommend you the version with an impedance of 32 Ohm. It is the right one to use it on your guitar systems as well on your PC or laptop. The 80 Ohm version would probably overload your systems and your sound experience would not be as good. Please note that none of them has a manual volume control on the cable.

  2. Difficult to advise further without 'being there' as they say. Open a Line 6 support ticket and they should hopefully get you sorted. The latest firmware is v1.12.
  3. Yes, @cristt is quite correct...external pedals can be assigned multiple parameters and are very similar to on board pedals except these do not appear in the 6 section stomp window. I have 2 momentary switches connected in FS7/FS8 and each can control any combination of parameters that the on board FS1-FS6 can.
  4. Have you updated pod go to the latest firmware? If not, do this first and your presets should appear.
  5. Hi both - @cristt said: "oh well I didn't get that part! it's pretty obvious that if the wah is on and you change wah model, you can't expect it to work until you turn it off and back on! it's normal behavior." The above didn't sound right to me so I've just checked my Pod Go. When I select the wah (ie red led on) regardless of whether I change the wah in the Pod Go or via Pod Go Edit the wah model immediately changes type with no cut out or even any noticeable lag - it's immediate, so if I change the wah model even whilst hitting a chord or playing a riff, the model immediately transitions. So @boynigel I think you are either experiencing a settings issue re how your wah is set to switch on/off or there is a software glitch. I'd suggest a reboot back to factory (save your custom patches first via Pod Go Edit so you can re-import these). Before reloading your patches, check if the same thing happens with factory patches. If that doesn't work, I recommend you send Line 6 Support a link to this thread and a back up file to to see if they can clarify where the problem is. But I can confirm that what you are experiencing is NOT normal behaviour. Hope this is helpful.
  6. If you only need fx the HxFx is the best way to go, no question.
  7. It's a nuisance isn't it. You can see the full name as you move the slider, but as far as I'm aware you can't expand the left hand list. Maybe future versions will give a bit more flexibility 're view options.

    Preset List

    It's a very clumsy system. The editor software of my Vox Tonelab is much easier. If you do a full backup you can access any preset to cut, paste, copy or tweak it...even off line. So I can load patches and back ups and move patches around easily without even having to connect my Tonelab. I don't understand why Pod Go Edit forces you to connect Pod Go before you can do anything, and why it doesnt save backups as a collection of individual patches. Its such a long hard tedious process if you wanted to save every patch as an individual patch. Surely the software could give an option to do this even if it took a while to backup...even if it took half an hour you could just leave it. Nuts way of doing things.
  9. I made enquiries with Beyerdynamics as to which version would be best with the 32 Ohm output rating of Pod Go and they advised the 32 Ohm version. My m50x sound excellent. I'm afraid I lack the technical expertise to comment on the article or the authors premise that the higher impedence the better the sound quality so I'm afraid I can't guide you here.
  10. Hi, the Pod Go is 32 Ohms so I'd advise against any 80 ohms versions. There are two headphones that seem to be particularly well regarded for studio monitoring (which is what you really need for an MFX like the Pod Go) - the BeyerDynamic DT770 Pro 32 Ohms and the Audio Technica ATH m50x 38 Ohm - both are studio quality monitoring headphones that sound great. I have the ATH m50x that comes with a carry pouch and 3 detachable leads - a 3-meter coiled cable, a 3-meter straight cable, and a 1.2-meter straight cable. Typical UK price £110-130. It's collapsible and comes in different colours too although mine are just black. The BeyerDynamic DT770 32 Ohm has a fixed lead and is non collapsible. My only concern with the DD770 was that if the lead go's, which all leads can, it's a problem to replace. I also liked being able to collapse the ATH m50x. But both the DT770 Pro and the ATH m50x are great quality and very well regarded, and both are similarly priced and are similar performing albeit there are some tonal response differences. I think you'll be fine with either but here's a comparison review that you might find helpful: https://www.headphonezone.in/blogs/buying-guide/comparison-beyerdynamic-dt-770-pro-audio-technica-ath-m50x
  11. Nope, but see here for more info re the blocks.
  12. Hi, 1. How many cables are you connecting in your Pod Go and which sockets in your Pod Go are you physically connecting to? 2. what type of cables are you using to connect your Pod Go to your PA? 3. What length of cable(s) are you using? 4. Have you set your main outs to Line level (if that sounds harsh have you tried changing it to 'amp level') 5. When you say PA, I assume from your description this a bona-fide PA with a mixing board, (rather than you connecting Pod Go direct to dedicated powered-speakers?) When connecting to a PA it's usually best to connect Pod Go via XLR cables. Although Pod Go doesn't have physical XLR sockets, it has the equivalent. From p6 of the manual, you should be using balanced TRS cables to connect Pod Go to your PA board. These are exactly the same as XLR cables. You can use a 1/4" balanced TRS cable(s) to connect Pod Go to your board if your board has 1/4" TRS inputs. If your board only has inserts for XLR connectors, you can easily buy a 1/4" to XLR connector cable that will allow you to connect a double-ended XLR cable to Pod Go, like these and cost only £3.49 UK each: https://www.gak.co.uk/en/stagg-sac-male-xlr-to-stereo-jack-cable-1m3ft-sac1psxm/119051?gclid=CjwKCAjw_sn8BRBrEiwAnUGJDlhb3IQ9QjWNUqBTjAN1S0bCBSEm_9RErYNpzIpA-6U8NZpf3b6BbRoC060QAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    FX Loop tonesuck

    But have you tried experimenting with the FX loop position? Its there of course to let you add external fx and place them anywhere you want in the signal chain. Thus, the fx loop is just another block and like every other block, when you place pedals in it, the order of your pedals in the block AND the position of the fx loop block will change your signal chain and how it sounds. Also, you can set the fx loop to line level, or to accommodate stomp boxes. Have you checked your settings and tried both? And you should also check the return out settings. See p32 of the manual for details.

    FX Loop tonesuck

    If you've put the fx loop at the end of the chain, that's likely why...try changing the position of the fx loop. What external fx are you running in the fx loop and how does your on board chain look? Generally, but not set in stone by any means, you'll typically want time based fx after the amp and distortions before it.
