  1. I don't get it. Now it's working fine and I am able to see snapshots 1 through 4 within a preset on the Pod Go's screen where as yesterday I couldn't. Yesterday I tried pressing the Mode switch to see preset footswitch mode. Then I tried pressing both the up and down switches together to see the 4 snapshots within a preset. No dice yesterday, now it works fine. Still wish I knew what happened so I would know how to correct it if it happens again.
  2. I don't know what happened. Got practice at church tonight and I spent the day setting my sounds up in Snapshot mode as I've been doing for months now. Had no problem today. Per the Pod Go's screen display I am in Snapshot mode. For an example, let's take one song I have in preset 22D. I set up a clean sound in Snapshot 1, there's a semi crunch sound in Snapshot 2 and a heavier crunch sound in Snapshot 3. Set it up with no problem. But when I go to the Mode switch so I can view Snapshots 1 through 4, what's displayed as if I were in Stomp mode. I can change from one Snapshot to the next on the Pod Go Edit on my laptop but not on the Pod Go itself. I turned the Pod Go off and closed the Edit program thinking it might be a glitch. Turned it back on and nothing has changed. Everything was fine earlier because I ran through all the songs with all of their Snapshots with no problem. Grabbed a bite to eat, came back to it with the problem. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. I've had my Pod Go for a little over a year now and I am really enjoying it. I've been lucky in that I haven't had any problems with the initial downloads and with the last firmware update. My only "gig" is playing at church and I use it whenever I play guitar or bass. In terms of portability it's been a life saver especially on my back and knees. It's amazing to think that all of my amps, cabinets and effects can fit in a suitcase! It took a while to dial the sounds in. Meaning, I got some great tones at home through the Sony Studio Monitor headphones ((MDR 7506) but due to the acoustics of the church it was very different and I really had to work with the soundman to make these sounds presentable. Regardless of the tones being clean or overdriven, at church they came out lacking a lot of bass and had too much treble. So basically I had to go to the global EQ to add a lot of bass and had to decrease the treble. So when I'm now setting the tones up at home they don't sound very lively but at church it comes through pretty good. I played guitar there this past Sunday and one of the other musicians out in the congregation told me "your tones were killing it!" So I guess the end justifies the means. But of what I gather they are soon to be putting some sort of sound absorption material up on the walls so maybe that will help with some things. After 10 month with the Pod Go I thought I'd try some amp/IR packs from Worship Tutorials. It was very interesting seeing how they set things up, I learned a lot and I really like the IR's as they made a difference. I know some people here frown on this sort of thing and that's fine. Of course, I had to dial them in to my preference but I really like the results. My favorites so far are the Vox AC30 Fawn model (I used that one at church), the '63 Fender Bassman and the Fender Princeton. I bought a lot of other packs (Marshall, Matchless and others) and I'm slowly getting to those as well. Fun stuff! I can't compare the Pod Go with other units out there and can't say it's the best thing because this is the only unit of this nature that I've tried. But for my needs and wants I'm pretty darned happy with what I'm getting from it.
  4. I use my Pod Go at church directly to the PA (no direct box) using the mentioned adaptor and have never had a problem. Works great!
  5. Oh, you're absolutely correct. "When all else fails read the instructions." My apologies to you for being upset with me and rightfully so. Have a good day sir.
  6. Thanks to my son, I was just now able to download the IR! Good grief! Well, I told you all I'm not a computer person! He pointed out how the patches and the IR were in a compressed zip folder, so he "unzipped" it and it was able to load just fine. I am SUCH a dunce with this stuff! Thank you all for you help.
  7. Well, I tried and tried and no luck with loading the IR. What you (Voxman) suggested is exactly what is shown in a YouTube video on how to load an IR. I mean, its not rocket science. Click on Impulses on the Pod, call up the IR from where its saved on my PC, click on and drag the IR into an available slot in the Impulse section and its done. Not so. As said before, the amp patches loaded just fine. Yes, the IR is a WAV file. But here's what's really odd. Assuming the IR loads you said: " go to the cab model in the preset, click on the 3 dots inside the white circle after the name of whatever cab it loads, and you'll see a normal red cab icon on the left, and a purple cab icon with a squiggly line on it on the right. Click the purple cab icon and on the left will be a list of the IR's you've loaded. Double click on the IR and it will load into the preset. Save the preset and you should be good to go." All 128 Impulse places show empty. But when I did what you said (clicking on the purple cab with the squiggly line on ANY preset in User it now shows it has an IR. It shows IR 1024 whatever that is. But when I click on that it shows it as being empty and again, all 128 Impulse places show empty. So I don't know what the hell is going on here.
  8. The preset and the IR were both purchased together as part of a package from Worship Tutorials. The IR is in its own folder. Double click on that folder and its in there as a WAV file. "60s AC Silver." I can access it just fine. Just can't figure out how to load the IR into the Pod.
  9. I just went back to YouTube and watched a video on how to load IR's. Fellows name is Jason Constatine. As per his video, he opened up the IR section. He then opened the file with the IR, clicked and dragged the IR into an available empty bank. The thing I noticed was as he had the IR over the empty banks they were highlighted and he put the IR into the highlighted bank of his choice. I tried that and nothing is highlighted. Then I get a message that says: Pod Go was unable to import preset in this set due to the following errors. -400- file or direction path not found. Pardon my ignorance, but I'm am NOT a computer person and I don't know quite what this means. I take it there's something else I need to do but can't figure out what.
  10. Greetings! Hope all are doing well. I ordered a Vox AC 30 preset from Worship Tutorials on Friday. Never tried an preset like this before so I thought I'd give it a go and it's pretty cool. I was able to load the preset just fine but I cannot get the IR to load. They said the IR is the real star of this preset so I'm anxious to hear it. I have contacted their support site for help but haven't heard back from them yet. In the meantime, maybe someone can walk me though how to load the IR. Again, first time in attempting this. Also, I've been so happy with my Pod Go that I haven't bothered to do any upgrades to the latest Firmware. The current Firmware is what came on the unit which is 1.120. I watched a video on YouTube on how to do this and it looks pretty easy but it seems like some folks here are having problems when loading the latest versions. Is the latest version 1.130? I think that's what it is. Thanks in advance for your time. Have a good day.
  11. Thanks Voxman. If some folks are having difficulties with upgrading 1.21 I'm going to hold off for a while. Maybe there's some glitches that have to be ironed out and if so I'll wait. As said, it's working great so why tamper with success? But I am considering trying some IR's. Some folks say IR's make a huge difference, others have say it's minimal. Won't know till I try.
  12. Thanks for the tips. Right now the Firmware is 1.120 (as it came from the factory) and the Edit is v1.11. All in all it's been working pretty darned good for me other than the few periodic glitches I mentioned.
  13. Greetings. Hope all are well today. Got my Pod Go in January and for my needs (playing at church) I'm making good progress. Got a bit of a snag going today. For one of my patches I'm using the WhoWatt 100 model. I have three slight variations in a bank (A, B & C) of this model and am having trouble in C. The Drive is currently set to 1.5 and I needed to bump it up a bit. No matter what I try it keeps jumping from 1.5 to 5.9. When I try to take it back down it will only go down to 4.5. (I was able to use the back arrow to get back to 1.5 with no problem). Tried this repeatedly with no luck and then it started working correctly and I was able to increase the Drive to where I wanted, which is about 2.7. I get this periodic snags from time to time but not very often. One example is when I'm trying to select a different reverb. I'll omit the current reverb, go to the different reverbs where they are all displayed. I can click on the icon for a particular reverb and it won't select. Then an hour later, no problem. This is all using to Editor program on my laptop. Again, very seldom this kind of things happens but when it does it's like....."what?" Anyone else get these kind of glitches from time to time?

    FX Send & Return

    Thanks gang. I really appreciate all the info. Right now it's working fine so at the moment that's all that matters. I don't have much time today to dig into what you're showing me here, but next week I'm going to further investigate all you've shown me. The more I'll know the better! Thanks again and have a good day!

    FX Send & Return

    The Big Sky is stereo, but I've never had a problem with it before and yes, the FX loop on the Pod is set to Mono. I think I may have this sorted out. In order to get this to work, it seems like I do have to engage the Mono FX Loop activated/illuminated. I also had to boost the Main Out in my signal chain to some degree as well as do some minor tweaks on the Blue Sky. So it does work but not as I was expecting it to per the video I watched when they said "it will work just as if you hooked up an external effect to an amps FX send and return". Apparently you have to have the Pod's Mono FX Loop switched engaged when using an external effect in the FX loop.
