    Does it have a line out?
    Asking because I want to directly connect the POD Go into my Focusrite solo's line input (guitar input).
    Would it be the AMP OUT? Or the MAIN OUT?

     

    if you want to feed your Focusrite with the full pod go preset (with amps, cabs and so on) you can just use the main out. Then set properly your input levels on the Focusrite software (if it's got a line/guitar switch, set it to line).

    Exactly! Being new at this I would not have bought this pedal without purchasing their PowerCab or considering a set of powered monitors so that I can use the internal Cabs/ all of its functions. IMO its 2 biggest features are the Pre Amps and Cabs. In the mean time, is there a way to turn off the POD Go cabs all at once?

    Thanks!

     

    if you use the amp out jack and set in the global options not to use the cabs, you won't get the cab sims even if they are active on the preset. 

    otherwise if you use the main out you have to turn it off manually, for each preset. 

     

  3. Hi! I was wondering how the amp out is meant to work when set to pre-cab/IR. I understand that this way I still get the amp modelling, but if I go straight into my guitar amp front panel, I would basically get a (virtual) amp into a real amp, which is usually not good. So usually we should plug into the fx-return of the real amp (if available).

    But, the manual states that amp out "is meant to send directly to the front of your guitar amp"... Which is kind of misleading...so what's the deal here?

  4. you'are facing audio latency. it is common and you have to deal with it, you can't completely get rid of it, but you can minimize it.

    the DAW has very little to do with the equation. it depends on your overal system, the pc/mac you are using (cpu power, ram, disk, etc...) and the audio device you are connecting.

    first you need to install the infamous ASIO drivers that come with your audio interface (the pod go), and use it as your audio driver inside your DAW (go into audio/preferences/drivers menu of your DAW). then you have to tweak the ASIO parameters like this: to reduce latency you need to reduce the buffer size, but if you reduce the buffer you may step into audio glitches like pops and noise that are the signal that your system can't cope with the low buffer size you have set. so you need to raise the buffer, until the audio is good. if still you get very bad latency your system maybe is not powerful enough.

    a good latency value for getting close to real-time audio is something less than 10 milliseconds. so the 0.2 seconds you're getting is indeed really bad.

    Yeah, that's the point of snapshots!

     

     

     

    nope that doesn't solve my answser. However now I know from other sources that you can't swap snapshots (I mean, in a preset, put the 1st snapshot as 4th and vice-versa, for example).

    Yes,  but you still have to manually save the preset before switching to another preset or those auto-saved snapshot changes are lost. In other words, snapshot auto-save is effective only while you remain in the same preset.

    that's a good point. 

  7. I don't have the pod go yet, but I was wondering if you can swap snapshots, from the machine (I heard that probably it's possible from the edit software). It would be awesome, like keeping pressed the two switches together just as you do it with the single blocks in stomp mode.

    From the manual I read that the active snapshot, when you save its preset, is recalled when you activate that preset, and it's all good, but a nice update would be swapping snapshots.

    Thanks!

    Sorry about that.... I misunderstood how that worked. 

     

    My suggestion for going through an amp then would just be to disable both the amp and cab block. You can turn those on if you ever need to go direct, but leave them off when going to the amp. 

    I would agree with you, but looks like, at least at the moment, amp out brings your amp sim out. But if you intend to go only to your amp (no main outs) just switch off your amp from the patch!

     

    Or, maybe better, plug your amp out into the FX return of your amp.

    IMO.... in your global settings set it so the Amp Output bypasses the amp/cab settings. 

    Just plug the amp out to the amp and play. When you want the amp sims (to FRFR or direct to PA), use the normal outputs. 

     

    I agree. But bare in mind that amp out bypasses ONLY cab, so you still get the amp modelling to get your clean/distortion settings out of the simulated amp (and should work well even if you go to your regular amp input).

  10. I don't know if it was on another topic but a possible solution might be using a stereo (balanced-TRS) jack cable from the pod go to the speaker, instead of a normal instrument (mono) jack cable.
