  1. Couldn't you just do: Guitar -> Go -> Go FX send -> Amp Guitar in -> Amp send -> Go FX return -> Go Main Out -> HX FX -> Amp return So effectively Go -> amp -> Go -> HX FX -> Cab or Guitar -> Go -> Go FX send -> Amp Guitar in -> Amp send -> HX FX -> Go FX return -> Go Main Out -> Amp return So effectively Go -> amp -> HX FX -> Go -> Cab ? Which would be better might depend on which effects your are using from the Go and the HXFX... Also with 1st, if you disabled the FXLoop block, you'd bypass the HXFX, whereas the 2nd the FX would always be on.
  2. Maybe? Well you may have to if you are looking for a very specific thing, but there are soo many free IRs out there... This site has quite a few mixes: https://soundwoofer.com/ImpulseMix/Index But I don't know, guess it depends on your skill level and level of how much of a sound engineering guru you are, as if you're a super pro of mixing mics and cabs, well yeah, going with the more budget and limited Go was likely not the best choice! is still a fine choice if you just purchase an IR pack for $50 or whatever which contain all the dual cab IRs you want! But yeah for Go, I really doubt we'll get dual cabs/mics in a software update! But who knows...
  3. I think it's effectively for what are newer and generally more DSP intensive effects, vs legacy (paler) which are effects coming from older Line6 products and generally less expensive... But that might not be it, since for instance Spring reverb is super expensive DSP-wise, but it's very possible that still the Spring reverb comes from an older L6 product...
  4. Simplest and most practical and logical would be between your guitar and the PGO; guitar -> volume pedal -> PGO -> etc.
  5. There are tons of free IRs, and when you use them instead of the bothersome [amp + mic + distance], the Go's usability gets a lot higher, as it's a PITA to experiment with amps/mic/distance. And as the majority of tone is from the amp, you're really doing yourself a huge favor by using IRs imho. But if you don't mind the PGO's amp+mic+dist thing, you likely won't be missing much in terms of tone. But reading YT comments, you're not the only one who seems to love his HD400/500. Not entirely sure how it compares sound-wise, but I'd think the Go would sound better as it's the latest emulation gen (helix tone). Getting there might be a challenge though, so having years of tuning your hd400 tone vs jumping in Go and trying to reproduce/improve your hd400 tones might not be super easy... And yeah IMHO the presets aren't a huge help and could have been better. But how they sound depends on your playing and your guitar, so again you can't really compare to the sounds you've dialed in your hd400; which are already tailored to your taste, playing, guitar, etc.
  6. Well it's an issue for 100% of the 3 people posting here; with almost brand new devices. Mine did it from day 1. So really not from wear and tear; imho it's just tradeoff or flaw of the design... PS said all my mouses scroll wheels had the issue, but my current mouse seems to not have the issue... So likely a component quality issue...? :\
  7. check out the 4 cable method in the manual. Or, you can connect go direct to effect loop and bypass the Katana's effects and go straight to cab. You might want to try with and without cab, see if one works better than the other.
  8. I really doubt it's software as it doesn't occur depending on speed; if you turned it super fast for 5 clicks and it moved 3-4 blocks because Go can't process that many clicks per second that could be something, but if you're waiting 1s for each click while the PGO is doing nothing and it bugs, it's more indication of hardware glitch. Pretty sure it's similar mechanism to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHfiCqwdVYo The other knobs which rotate but don't have clicks are kinda annoying also; as I find it quite hard to regulate the turning speed to get to what you're trying to get. Ex; 0-100, you spin it slowly and it goes 1,2,3, then you spin fast, and it goes 1,2,22,33,78,100 ... But you want 50.. So go back.. 99, 98, 97 ... ok gotta go faster ... 90, 85,84,83,82,63,43,23,03,00 grrrr!
  9. Yeah it's annoying. Mine does the same on both knobs, about 10% of inputs are randomly lost, both directions. Think it's a common issue with that sort of hardware, never had a mouse (mainly logitech) that was able to capture 100% of mouse scrolls.

    Factory Presets

    Went back to them a few days ago, maybe the first dozen ones. The thing is that, IMHO, the cabs really take over the sound. So 90% of what I'm hearing with the default patches are "Ah that's a 4x12 Marshall, that's a 4x12 Mesa, etc.", and there's really not so many sort of 'incredible' tones; they're kinda generic/bland; Anyway, I didn't find much super inspiring or amazing sounding patches there, but that also depends on your guitar, play style, etc. Rewatching this; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V6-nCYt88A There seems to be a couple of patches which seem interesting (5D, 7B, 9B, 18A), so I think that going through the presets, and copying the presets which seem to have potential to your user preset and then tweaking them might have more value than trying to use presets as they are. Or... Maybe just using IRs instead of the stock cabs which all too often seem to take over the entire patch sound... I really wish the stock patches were 'better'... I don't know, guess it's hard to setup good patches... Other L6 devices seem to have too many 'silly' unusable patches, this has more usable patches, but doesn't really seem to highlight the incredible capabilities of the PGO... Maybe it's not super realistic, but would have been awesome if you went patch by patch and went: "wow! That's awesome! How did they do that?!" That happened once for me, with the space patch lol Maybe the PGO's presets could have been a highlight of the different distortions and effects; like with snapshots; 4 snapshots to highlight the sound of a distortion pedal, with an amp, with a reverb, etc., so you could go preset 1, snapshot 1, then go: "oh I didn't know that reverb could do that! Oh! That's how this distortion should be used! Etc.!"
  11. Your question isn't very clear. Or just doesn't make any sense to me... If you're sending a dry/clean signal through USB and then applying distortion via software (not PGO) how is it the PGO's issue that " there's not much gain" lol Maybe this is related?
  12. Yeah, you can do it through the softare PGEdit via unassigning the stomp button in the stomp button interface, can also do it on go, but you have to go to action or something ... It's done in a quite unintuitive way which I don't exactly recall. A simpler way is to assign another pedal to the same stomp button and choose 'replace' while saving (don't merge!), your old stomp button will become blank, then you just re-assign the same block to another button and effectively have erased your loop stomp button.
  13. First, 'nd', that's not even like, a real word... Second, WE ALREADY HAS SHIMMER OMGOMG!!!1111oneoneoneone Ahem. It is called "Plateau" reverb. :p It be a shimmer! :D
  14. It's strange that they just didn't add an input volume on the input node... Also too bad that you can't set the volume pedal to go over 100%. You can also place the EQ at the start of your chain and boost the signal from your 'free' always on EQ block. Amps also typically have EQ settings so you can still get some EQ'ing with your amp, but yeah nothing could stop you using snapshots or that function where you attach values to buttons and have a button to do +10dB bass, +10dB mids, etc., and use EQ as a free boost.
  15. The cab simulation of the PGO simulates the sound through a guitar cabinet, it's intended to be used with recording software or through studio monitors, headphones, etc. But if you're using the PGO output to a guitar cab, you're already using a cab, so don't need to simulate a 2nd cab. If you're simulating a cab and play through a guitar cab, it's as if you had, for example: Guitar -> Marshall amp -> Marshall 4x12 cab -> recorded via microphone -> Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab. So yeah, that would affect your tone! ;) If you have a regular stereo system, just regular amp, speakers, etc., to listen to music, you might want to try plugging your Go through that. Already you'd benefit from Stereo effects, and you might get a better sound than through your guitar amp & cab. It's quite a bit more flexible that way, you're getting to 'really' use the Go's cabs or IRs.
