  1. I agree with above I practice and gig with mine and every time I just go directly into the mixer WHICH will be connected to a PA system.. All you need is 1/4 inch cable long enough to go to the desk. At home I have a small mixer and monitors which I plug my PodGo into....my amp gathers dust since I got the PodGo
  2. I play live with mine and leave it around 50%-60% for same reasons as Voxman PLUS you just don't need the output to be that hot.
  3. Yeah great update. Really really liking the acoustic pedal...almost went out and purchased one but no need now.
  4. This is a bit of daft comment in my opinion. You don't need to KNOW the difference between the pedals. The POD GO provides you with accurate modelling of lots of different types of pedal. For those who like to try out different version Pod GO has go it...if you don't just pick one and play with it. It's exactly the same on Tone Studio for the Katana. For me it allows me to have different sounds if I want but I don't have to. Pedals aren't about picking the best AND if you do want to know about them then because Line6 have provided what they are modelled on you can do your own googling. I think of it like having a shop full of pedals and being able to pick and try new ones. I'd have to pay hundreds if I bought them separately. The Dave Gilmour comment applies to anybody who wants to get a particular tone. You'd have to do some FX selection and knob twiddling (in Tone studio on the Katana) to do that..so it's no different to the Pod Go in that respect. I agree it's about how simple you want to keep it. I like the Katana it sounds really really good for the money and keeping it simple makes it easy to dial things in. But if I'm playing a particular song and want a more accurate Fender tone then in Pod Go I have it. Need an accurate VOX tone...its in the Pod Go. It's a bit like comparing apples and oranges. You certainly don't need a PHD (anymore that you would for using tone studio)....the amp model is the amp model..it has more options but basically you can ignore them if you want...you'll mainly be playing with Gain, Channel Volume, bass,mid, treble and presence as you would on any amp. Pod Go is like having a "real" amp and a pedalboard...no different to the katana unless you want to look at it in that way.
  5. No problem.. I have to admit I haven't moved from 1.10 as yet (which doesn't require you to remove the SD card). I do most of my editing on the Pod Go to be honest. I didn't realise there was a Pod Go edit 1.12...sure its not the firmware you're talking about?
  6. I have an old Katana 100 and the Pod Go. The Pod Go is significantly better from an effects basis and give's you more flexibility from an amp perspective. I simply use my Katana as a Power Amp going into the FX return ALTHOUGH I also play a lot through studio monitor without the amp. It's good to have the Katana as backup but I wouldn't miss it if it was gone. But the price difference between the two is significant. You wont regret buying a Pod Go. What I would say in reference to the last reply is that it's very very easy to dial in a sound on the Pod Go, much easier than hooking up the Katana to the laptop.
  7. If you want to suggest new improvements or vote for them then do so on http://line6.ideascale.com/ this is where Line 6 take the suggestions from. Have to admit I've not noticed on there a request for global CAB/IR disable which seems to have become more prominent in recent weeks on a few sites. Naming of "multiples" and snapshots will almost certainly make the cut as suggested BUT probably not in next release. Have to admit since initial firmware update not had any freezes, crashes etc.
  8. Have to admit as a veteran of MFX I didn't even try the factory presets until recently. Glad I didn't as they're same as most of the other manufacturer factory presets - pretty flat and dull. Have to admit I've had no problems get a nice tone out of the Pod Go. Blank preset, add in an amp, turn the Master UP, Channel Vol around 8, Gain down to around 2.5 initially and that is a good starting point for my setup with most amp models, whether it's through Monitors, the Return on my Katana (obviously cab/ir turned off) or headphones. Tend to tweak the amp eq and usually the presence to taste then it's ready for any pedals. Really enjoying the overdrive fx and chorus effects in particular. Only thing I'm struggling with is getting a decent acoustic tone...that's as much to me using a PRS SE as anything else. Even with the coils split it doesn't sound close to as good as my old Yamaha Pacifica (mind you everything else sounds so much better).
  9. Personally I'm pretty happy with the stock cabs in most instances. Some of the IRs are better but I don't think the stock cabs are a disaster. I guess it all depends on what you expect. This is a step for me in terms of modelling from the much cheaper Boss and Zoom MFX so I'm more than pleased with the quality.
  10. add the idea to ideascale.com then... Line 6 do not look at this forum for ideas.
  11. You've got to be realistic here. I think I said in another thread of a similar nature that I am absolutely certain PodGo will continue to get updates and I'm sure further effects, but they are not going to match the Helix (not least because the Hardware can't) and we're still very early into the release of this product to be expecting anything but patches for bugs etc. at this point (I reckon end of Q1 for next major update). The Helix LT etc. is like double the price of the PodGo and probably worth it if you really want all those goodies... I struggled to justify the price on the PG but so glad I did as it's awesome compared to modellers and similar or lower price points. I'm sure some will buy the PG as a first Line 6 device and decide to upgrade to a Helix others will be quite happy with what they've got.
  12. I suspect the timing of any release of new firmware will be inline with marketing/sales approaches.. every time they do something like this it generates lots of discussion and media interest AND consequently sales. I'm sure they will be working on Pod Go stuff but the release will be dictated a little by how they see sales going and whether these are still rising or have levelled off. Also I don't see a lot of people pumping ideas in ideascale. There was a recent article on Helix 3.0 and they clearly said they take steer and direction on changes from that site. You look at ideascale from a helix perspective and they have 100s of votes for particular changes compared to 10s of votes for Pod Go. That is probably indicative of how many people have it and that many are new to the Line 6 range.
  13. Pod Go is definitely not a Helix and therefore will not get Helix upgrades....but I'd be very very surprised - given Line 6 commitment to its product lines - if Pod Go doesn't receive it's own regular updates. There are certainly a few immediate things I suspect they'll want to do in the first update just to "fix" a few things and make it more viable for gigging (snapshot and multi stomp naming for instance). After that I think you'll see steady occasional updates with additional amp models, new effects, tweaks to existing effects and possibly better ways to utilise stomp switches and disable/remove fixed blocks. You're right this is a lot cheaper than Helix LT etc.. but for many it's still an expensive unit.
  14. I use my Pod Go both through studio monitors using the L/Mono output (sounds excellent using CABS/IR) and into the FX Return of my Boss Katana using the AMPOUT output....this sounds pants unless you disable the CABS/IR but sounds great with them off....I therefore changed the AMP OUT settings in the Global Settings of Pod Go so that the signal get's sent Pre CAB/IR this means I don't have to disable cabs/IR on each present when using the Pod Go with an Amp and can still use the L/Mono if I want to go straight to PA (which is what I'll do most of the time). If you have any delay, reverb, mod FX you would need to make sure they were moved Pre Cab/IR to make sure they were still in the chain for a AMP OUT if using this approach
  15. I saw a couple of responses in the forum where people had asked for enhancements/changes for Pod Go and a couple of people pointed towards Line 6 Ideascale which is where Line 6 seem to actually take their ideas from. So thought I'd create a specific topic signposting people to it>> Register Here - Line 6 Ideascale and log your ideas or vote for those already on there.
