  1. So the Pod Go has a dedicated Guitar amp out that automatically disables all speaker cab modeling when you connect to this output. it appears Helix doesn’t have this, correct me if I’m wrong. Does that mean with Helix I’d have to create duplicate patches and then disable speaker modeling in each one (for when I want to go into my amp’s fx loop Return) or is there a quicker, easier way?
  2. Trying to use my Ernie Ball expression pedal to (in this case) control the mix value of a delay. I do the assignment procedure as per the manual but it doesn’t work. If I move the pedal through it’s range I can see the values change as to how I set them, but the pedal turns into a volume pedal in the process...meaning heal-down outputs NO sound. Adding to the strangeness the on board volume pedal no longer functions.
  3. Does anyone know what the impedance is of the Guitar In jack? I'm having issues with how the Pod Go pairs with my Suhr guitar's treble bleed circuit. I reached out to Suhr and they were asking for this value.
  4. My Suhr PT Standard has a treble bleed circuit on its volume knob that allows it maintain highs as the volume gets rolled down. This works flawlessly with all my amps and effects but for some reason, with the Go, the second I move the Suhr’s vol knob from its full-on setting at 10 down to as little as 9.5 all of my high disappears. Not horribly so, but still very obvious. It’s as if a switch was thrown. As an experiment I put a Boss pedal (because it has a buffer) between the Suhr and the input of the Go. Aside from a bit of high end loss from the Boss, the problem with the Suhr’s volume knob disappeared. Thing is I really don’t want to use any other pedals with my Go setup. Is there any good reason why this is happening? I’m aware that I could always cut the capacitor off of the Suhr’s volume knob, but that would mean losing the benefit of the treble bleed when I play through different rigs. I suppose I could get a dedicated buffer pedal…hopefully they make one that has a foot switch so I could turn it off when I use my other guitars with the go. Still curious as to why this is happening, and more importantly if there’s anything that can be done?
  5. okay so i just did a factory reset and it's still doing it, whether it's a factory or user preset. i updated to the latest firmware when i got it 5 days ago. what's weird is that Line 6's site says v1.11 is the most up to date version, yet after doing the update the Go's screen says v1.12 upon start up. so i'm somehow running a version that isn't available on their site? okay... and now the icing on the cake- i backed up my presets on Edit but now when i try to relaunch Edit all i get is a window shell that's completely black inside. rebooted my (essentially brand new, up to date) Windows computer, rebooted the Go, reattached USB- same thing. black screen. perfect.
  6. Thank you. Not feeling good about this now because it has exhibited this behavior both before and after a factory reset and firmware update. Aside from this it is totally glitch-free.
  7. Would I be correct in assuming that one can’t control multiple effect parameters via an external expression pedal? For example, on a delay, could I control parameters for both Feedaback and Mix, or no?
  8. Well it didn’t seem too obvious to me, especially given that I can actively scroll through all the other effects when they’re still on. I’m guessing the wah effect is an exception given that it shares an on/off switch with the volume.
  9. Yes. The wah is on and it’s light is lit when this happens. That said, I found a workaround. If I select different wah models while the wah is bypassed, I don’t have any issues. The problem only seems to occur when I try to select a different wah model when the wah effect is on.
  10. I remember that my Helix allowed me to set foot switches as non-latching so they’d go right back into bypass mode as soon as I removed my foot from a given switch. Does the Go allow this function?
  11. Just got my Pod Go. While tooling around with it fresh out of the box I noticed that when/if I changed the wah model type, that it would stop working as soon as I switched wah models. As I moved the expression pedal up and down I could see the parameter value changing on the screen but there was no “effect” ...as if it were bypassed. I didn’t think much of it at the time as I hadn’t looked at the manual yet and chalked it up to possible user error. later I upgraded the firmware due to the unit freezing up a couple of times which solved that problem but the wah issue remains, and having spent some time with the manual I now know that it was not user error. Anyone know of a fix for this?
  12. If I'm running my Helix, minus cabinet sims, into the front of my tube amp should my output be set to line or instrument? Will there be any sound difference between the two? I'm on the road and won't have access to it for a few days so thought I'd ask.
  13. overdub is set at 0 db as i've always had it. i typically don't overdub. I just use the looper to jam over my rhythm part
  14. i'm running firmware version 2.20.0 is there any good reason why all of a sudden my looper playback level is lower than that of my incoming guitar signal? i haven't changed anything. typically i have the looper post-amp/effects,at the very end of my signal chain. tried turning playback up but it maxes out at 0.0
  15. OP here. yep. i see a Comic Book Guy (or two) has already arrived. apparently i forgot that on these forums one needs to choose their words very carefully otherwise some condescending virgin...i mean, expert, is going to call you out on it. "FRFR fail" was merely a way to possibly get someone's attention who might be shopping for one and to let them possibly take from my experience and learn that maybe they don't need one. in no way was i universally implying that FRFR wasn't the way to go and i clearly stated that what worked for me might not work for others. i just thought it was worth bringing it up because a lot of people (like myself previously) wouldn't have considered putting an amp simulation through a real amp. so like i said before- YMMV, but give it a shot before dropping 800 bucks (possibly) unnecessarily. so there. hope it wasn't too emotional. ;)
