  1. The thing is that is not difficult or boring to add reverb to each preset, of course I know that I can make a template or copy patches, my idea was just to free up a fx block, so that I would get full 4 for fx that I really care about (being the rev separate) and not 3 + 1 (being 90% of the time a reverb).

    oh well...just an idea.

    Would you also want other reverb models available, or just have the simple on/off room reverb as the one and only reverb option?


    If the latter I don’t think your suggestion would get much support. A single room reverb option is just too restrictive.


    If the former, and you want to sometimes use other reverb options instead of the always-present room reverb, then your suggestion actually requires more DSP allocated to reverb than there now is. Even when the room reverb is turned off, as long as it is in the preset there is DSP allocated for it because you could turn it on at any moment. Which means less DSP for other things, reverb or otherwise.


    For me it would be sufficient to select a single type of reverb (being a room or whatever) with same settings for all the patches. A nice touch would be an on/off state at patch level, but I could easily get away without that.

    You may say I could also add an external rev pedal on the fx loop or between pod go and whatever it is after... Yes, but that would require more stuff to bring along and connect.


  3. Just thinking... For folks like me who just use the same simple small "always-on" reverberation for every patch (much like the rev control of a real amp), it  would be very nice if line 6 could implement kind of a "global reverb" (just with the option to turn it on/off at patch level, if you will), so to be able to free up an fx block that most of the times would be a reverb anyway. I know that reverbs are dsp hungry but a simple room reverb won't hurt that much I guess...

    That would be great.

  4. Yeah there are no strict rules, however typically you would put your reverb last in the chain. Comp and trem could go first or last depending on what result you want to achieve and how you like it best. So for example you could put comp between guitar and pod, rev between pod and amp and tremolo in fx loop, or both trem and rev in fx loop.

    Personally I would ditch the noise gate pedal: the pod go has already a built-in gate available in the input "block" so that doesn't take up any room for additional fx.

    With Dynamic DSP,  you have flexibility to fully use the available DSP - but if you choose certain amp & effect models (eg spring reverb) that need to use more DSP processing power...


    Is really the spring reverb more dsp hungry than say a room reverb? I wouldn't imagine that, how did you know?

    No probs.  Aside from having access to all new modelling , effects & features (as good as the TLSE still is, it was launched 16 years ago - that's a long time ago in the modelling world, which shows you how well its lasted, how advanced it was at the time, and in some ways still is!) the BIG thing for me as an 'oldie' is I desperately needed something compact and light. The TLSE is a big, heavy unit - with it's heavy duty power-supply it weighs around the same as a full Helix, and it's overall physical size isn't much different!  At 63 I just don't want to carry the weight of big MFX and heavy amps anymore!   One thing I miss though is it's long, heavy duty cable & PSU with mid-position transformer with its own on/off switch. The TLSE/TLLE and their PSU's ere built like tanks!   The Pod Go PSU  is small, light -  but it has a thin short cable and isn't robust for gigging, so i'll have to make sure I have a back-up when (eventually in the UK) we get back to gigging!   But it's pros and cons - I love that Pod Go switches on every patch between Volume & Wah (a big reason I gigged with the TLSE  apart from A/B switching was its dual volume/expression pedal layout, rather than the smaller, lighter TLLE that I also have).  The Pod Go is a joy from that perspective alone as wah is pre-programmed in by default whereas you have to manually select wah in each patch you wanted in the TLSE, and then that was your pedal option used up!


    Yeah the size and weight is also a big point for me. I'll get the pod go as backup or small size all-in-one rig when I can't bring my amp and analog pedalbord. TLSE indeed is quite big and heavy, and yes its psu never failed me and was just clever designed. Overall I've enjoyed using the Vox, for its user friendly design and easyness to use, but indeed if you needed the wah (and I pretty much need it for all my patches) you just couln't fit another pedal like boost, distortion or comp, big bummer but I've survived to that eventually. Now I'm really looking forward to get my hands on the pod go!

  7. thanks voxman55. yeah I also was using the "green and red" settings of the tonalab for adding gain/volume without changing the whole amp. So giving what you said I think I'll can handle that easily with the Pod Go with snapshots or changing parameters with a footswitch. thanks a lot!

    Are you sure you have a Tonelab SE??  Because if you mean using 2 amp models at once in the same patch neither Tonelab SE nor Pod Go has a double amp configuration.   


    yeah sorry of course I mean double amp settings (green and red if you know what I mean)

    There's more than a dozen types of compressors...  Saying there's "not really" any sustain pedal in the Go is silly...!  https://www.sustainpunch.com/guitar-sustain-pedals/



    ok bro, turns out I don't know how to PM here either...  Since you had mass downvoted (7?  Without even reading them all by your own admission?  lol), I thought I'd also use the function to express my genuine disagreement with any of your comments as I encountered them.  Didn't think you'd freak out at 2 since you handed out dislikes like candy...  Now seems you've childishly downvoted a few more of my comments in retribution, but anyway, I'm not keeping score, just abide by the golden rule and we're good.  (Treat others as you would like others to treat you).


    "sustain" doesn't not mean "compressor pedal" straight, at all!! Sustain is just a characteristic that you may get from a compressor, if setup in a certain way. And I just offered my interpretation of what "sustain" could mean by the user. Don't know why this bothered you so much! I admittedly un-downvoted some of your comments, you don't even read. Yeah it was enough for me to see the star treck memes and the blatantly pseudo-insults of your posts to downvote, I think that was well enough. But again, I un-downvoted because I didn't want to go on with this thing, I'm downvoting also your post up here, see? I left some because you desearved it.

    Well, so far so good. Take care.

    Please use PMs if you want to discuss, don't hijack a random thread... FYI, I just don't agree with some of your comments...


    I don't know how to pm here. No reason to downvote just because you don't agree with my posts...what's not to like of what I've answered about the sustain pedal thing?!?! You know that reputation goes down when you downvote... Just stop it.

    Sustain pedals are basically compressors (compress sound; made low volume sounds loud), and in the Go appear under 'Dynamics'. I'm really not the expert in compressors, and I've not yet explored every one in the Go in detail, but there's a lot in the Go!  Searching for 'best sustainers', the MXR Dyna Comp is often recommended as a sustainer, it's the "Red Squeeze" in Go.  The Xotic SP compressor comes up (ex; "Really great as a sustain!", " doubles my sustain without altering my original tone "etc.), "kinky comp" in go, etc.  Just playing quickly with some of them, I really like the Rochester Comp. But yeah there's a lot of choice!



    grdgo33 would you please stop downvoting me for each post I do?!?! Alright I un-downvoted you some of your posts but left a couple because you where just useless complaining and trolling, actually. I'm not downvoting you for each and every post like you are doing to me!! Or, if you will continue, I will too, for each of your posts, but  I guess that would be pretty useless for each of us.

    Further, if you share or download patches these will all be impacted by your change to global settings and give you and others a 'false image' of tones because their Global EQ won't match yours.  What I've been really impressed with is just how natural and amp like Pod Go is which was a real concern to me having been used to the warm valve like tone from my Vox Tonelab SE/LE units.




    hey I'm also planning to switch from the tonelab SE to the pod go. Did you find any difficulties going to the pod go? I'm using quite a lot the double amp configuration for each patch of the tonelab, do you manage to achieve the same functionality like using snapshots or a multi-control assigned switch in pedal mode?


  13. completely agree with voxman55. Global eq is not the primary source for creating a tone. Should be the last, and only if needed. Everyone should be able to dial in a good tone with standard amp and effects controls. Global eq is just for fine tuning the overall sound of the pod go output, for all the patches, like to compensate what's AFTER the pod go (speakers, room/concert hall sound, etc...).

  14. Wow you posted a humoungous topic but I'll try to reply to what I know:


    1) yes you can.

    2) yes you can.

    3) you can assign a sw to activate effects or change parameters (that is, swap between a min and a max setting), you can also do it multi-parameters (one sw press does more than one thing at the same time).

    4) reading the manual you can assign EXP2 either to an expression pedal or two external fw, if so I guess they act like all the other built-in fw.

    5) you can move any block just anywhere. you can also put your cab at first place if you fancy so!

    6) you can put anything in the 4 free blocks, including EQs of course.

    7) you can see all the fx list in the manual. they are differentiated by the line fill color (M series is a color, helix type are another color).

    8) don't know that

    9) tipycally all the phisical parameters of the fxs (and amps) have been trasposed to the modelled parameters list.

    10) you can do that. you can assign any parameter from whatever effect to the exp pedals.


    Bare in mind that I don't have the unit but I'm pretty sure of what I've written having read a lot of posts and a lot of reviews.

    The second part of your post could make sense, I mean using the fx send as virtual "amp-out" signal, just bare in mind that you need to set properly the position of revs and delays (typically you don't put them before your amp simulation).

    Can anyone suggest a pedalboard power supply that works well with the Pod Go?

    you can easily go with the Truetone one spot pro cs6, or cs/higher number depending on your total mA needs. But the CS6 is enough for the pod go and a little more. I have the CS6 so just ask if you need.
