  1. I'd love to get a sound approaching that so I could play rhythm and mimic a B3. Nothing crazy with solos, really just simple slow, held chords. Anyone tried this? I'd guess using one of the rotary speakers would be a good start, but beyond that I'm starting at zero. Edit: well...why not try myself? https://line6.com/customtone/tone/5719104/ It's not terrible I think. It's best fingerpicked instead of strummed.
  2. Just curious: do you know what USB type you have on the front vs the hub/back? I know my PC has 2.0 on the front and 3.0 on the back. I wonder if that makes a difference.
  3. I just bought a laptop bag from a thrift store. All my local thrift stores have large selections of laptop bags. IMO they are almost perfect - many are padded and some even have hard inserts which provide even more protection. And they all have multiple pockets for cables, power supplies, etc. Just make sure you measure and get one right sized. Cost me $3.
  4. My Headrush arrives this week and I'm curious what EQ or other settings people may have noticed they needed to change when going from headphones to the powered speakers? Also, any tips for when playing with a live band? I'd assume you'd maybe need more midrange to make sure you stand out a little better?
  5. Doesn't seem like your link actually goes to your patch. I'd like to try it tho. https://line6.com/customtone/tone/5454075/ This is v4 of my BB King patch. It's meant to be used with my semi hollowbody and have an eq setup to approximate Lucille's variac switch in position 2 (which is apparently what BB used). Snapshot 1 starts of clean with a bit of breakup and each one gets progressively more gain and really doesn't sound very BB King by #3 I'd say. But it works for a wide variety of blues guitar sounds on my hollowbody guitar.
  6. Nice! Gonna definitely give this a try. Thanks for the head's up.
  7. Not yet. Didn't Jason (the youtube video guy who we all know and who's last name I don't remember) say it was supposed to come to the Pod Go? I don't see any reason this change can't be made for us.
  8. Ok, some interesting choices I didn't consider. For just going to the FX return on the amp, what output would I use from the Pod Go? The Mono main out? I've read a bunch of stuff about the amp and speaker coloring the sound too much when using the Pod Go's own amp/cab models in conjunction with the physical amp and speaker, so that would worry me a bit in this situation where I need to be plugged in and ready to go ASAP. I'm probably playing though an older Fender(and I wouldn't be 100% that it even has an FX loop), so I really just wanted to add the Klon to color my sound a little and maybe the Tube Screamer if I needed a more distorted lead. The EQ for lead boost is a good idea tho, I'll certainly give that a try. Thanks.
  9. I want to take my Pod Go to a local jam where I'll be using someone else's amp. I don't have an amp at home to practice or test this on, which is why I'm asking here. I only want/need to use maybe a couple different overdrives and the wah/volume. So please tell me if I have this correct for this sort of setup: In the Pod Go, I'll turn off all the amp and cab blocks and just setup the overdrive and distortion I want. Then: guitar into the Pod Go, and which output do I want to use to the front of the amp? Do I want to use the Main Out/mono or the Amp Out? Also, any tips or things I might want to know about setting up this way? I want to make this as quick as possible to setup.
  10. The Klon pedal is probably what I would use. It gives a great edge of breakup tone with lower drive settings. A few of the other overdrives also are good for this, but with slightly difference characteristics.
  11. One of the prominent Youtuber's stated this was an oversight and would be corrected by Line6 later.
  12. Thanks, I'll give a try to using a simple switch like you mention and see how I like that option.
  13. You are right, that is confusing. :) But thanks for the explanation. I guess the manual could be more clear here in making that distinction, as it seemed to me perfectly logical to want to be able to set the polarity one way when it's being used as volume, and another for wah.
  14. You know, I didn't know I could do that. I'm not sure how it's done, but I'll look into it. Using the PC editor, can you just drag the min or max over the other one? At any point I think I'm going to rethink how I'm doing a volume boost, and just place the volume pedal at the very end of the chain instead of just boosting the last effect in the line.
  15. Hmmm, ok. But then the manual says that EXP1 is assigned to the Wah block and EXP2 to the Volume block, and you use the "hidden toe switch" to toggle between them. So then why would EXP2 change? Is it because I'm assigning it to control an effect's setting?
  16. Brand new Pod Go user here. Windows 10 and working 100% fine for me using Pod Go Edit. Maybe actually read what Voxman55 took the time to explain to you before simply disregarding it as not being a problem on your end?
  17. I've a new unit I just purchased a week or so ago, so maybe I'm missing something here.... In the global settings there's a setting which allows you to reverse the pedals. IE: normally the pedal full forward is 100% open and back is 0% closed. I've been trying to set the volume pedal (EXP2) to control the volume of the compressor in my chain. I remove the assignment from the pedal and bypass it so it doesn't control volume at all. And now assign it to the compressor as normal and set the min/max on the compressor volume with the sliders. It works and changes the volume as it should, except I'd like the pedal itself to be reversed so it's full on when back and off when forward. Setting this in Global Settings, EXP2 polarity, has no effect whatsoever. However....if I set EXP1 to reverse polarity, then it works. Except this isn't EXP1, and then the Wah Pedal is reversed too. So it seems this is a bug? Or am I missing something here somehow? I should also add that I am fully upgrade with the newest firmware.
  18. I would start with the free Allure IR pack Line 6 offers: https://line6.com/allure/. There's some pretty good cabinet sounds in that pack.
