  1. Well, me and my pod go, we never got along so we parted ways… cant understand why some say this sounds better than individual pedals. I have some ok guitars, an ok amp and thus bought some pedals (mostly boss) and waw… thát is what i call sound. Open for debate though.
  2. still on my good tone quest. Can someone explain if (and in what way) the in/out settings “main out” and “guitar in pad” affect the tone? the past hour i ve been playing with the different global settings “guitar in pad” and “main out level”. The different settings change the tone: to me setting “main out” to line gives a clear sound but harsh when used with distortion. Im using an acoustic amp, main out of the pod go into the return of my marshall. This sounds better imho than using the amp out… is there a difference (soundwise) in just bypassing the cab block and selecting pre cab IR in the settings? I just want to understand what the settings above are real meant for. For eg a bike is meant to be used on 2 wheels although you can do cool tricks on 1 wheel. I first want to understand the basic settings so i can fiddle with those. thanks!
  3. After 4 months with the pod go i still get a crappy tone when compared to my vox pathfinder. What i dont understand is how i can use the amps from the pod go: 4cm? Fx loop? this video shows the three ways of using a pod go but unfortunately he doesnt show how you connect the cables. Now im using a marshall 50as amp with fx return. I thought an acoustic amp wouldnt color the tone as much. so, how do i connect the cables and what settings do i have to have in the system menu to use the pod go, its amps and effect? and what is the difference between using the fx loop and 4cm? thanks
  4. I had my old marshall acoustic amp as50d repared and this works great: no buzzing and all amps come trough wonderfully.
  5. that’s it! Superb! Thanks a lot!! When the update failed the first time, i deleted the pod go edit and from then on it wouldnt update to 1.21 until i reinstalled the 1.1...
  6. After downloading the pod go edit 1.21 update it says... installing the 1.11 version!!! is the link corrupt? IMG_5544.MOV
  7. Cant see the new features, restore factory settings doesnt work either...any help? when i click dload 1.21 it says installing 1.11!?!?!
  8. So, when bypassing the amp and cab of the pod go, i get great sound, but then i m just using the pod go as a pedalboard. is there a way to connect to the front of the amp and using the preset amps and stuff? Everything i try with those sound horrible. so does this mean pod go doesnt fully work with amps that dont have a so called fx retry ? Is there a way besides an frfr? And can an frfr be used on normal house volumes? I read there pretty loud?
  9. Hmm that headrush looks tempting indeed... thanks for all the insights, your other posts have been really helpfull as well (like: pod go is not plug n play, now i get it). so going further on the matter: how would you create a perfect john frusciante sound on a pod go? I mean his clean sound of course
  10. Thanks! I got best result so far by lowering the output volume of every preset. Noise gate adjustemts (dont know if i understand the principle) seems to help as well. And using the amp out signal gives a much cleaner tone than the main out...
  11. My problem: With guitar at volume 10, i cant get a clean sound on lets say a fender deluxe preset amp. With less than 10, theres no distortion. my set up: - strat/tele/eastman - vox pathfinder amp (15w, gain and volume controle) I use the main out, minimal gain on my amp but still almost every preset sounds distorted when my volume on the guitar is up at max. With pod go it sounds as if with every amp selected is at gain 10 (which isnt the case if you look at te setting). but when i select a distortion or fuzz, nothing comes out unless i put my guitar at maximum volume. So to obtain a clean sound i lower the volume of my guitar but when i select a distortion, there s no distortion unless i go to volume 10. should i just lower the drive on every amp? my issue is there s too many gains or volume settings involved when using a pod go: volume on guitar, on the selected amps, on the pod go itself, on the output amp. what settings should i select to be able to get a clean or distorted sound without lowering the volume on my guitar? and how do you mange al volume settings? Are there volume guidelines so to speak? thx!
  12. Fairly new to this: i plug in my guitar, i caonnect my amp. Why cant i hear certain effects? (Yes they re in the chain and switched on). What to do?
