    @rarellano why the sad face?  lol   



    Because the delay between version releases. Using statistics, the v1.50 must be available in april 13th and with the Helix v3.50 features. That it's because I'm sad. Yet.

  2. Cab, yes, you must to turn it off. And amp, you could use it like a booster or overdrive in order to your imagination and the place you going to put the fx loop in POD Go chain. And yes, you must to always enable fx loop to use 4CM (four cable method).

    Update: It appears from a recent post on one of the FB pages that this is a hardware issue.  "...I'm sorry friends, but the problem is confirmed hardware and here in Italy there are already those who have had the modification under warranty at the authorized Line6 service"


    I purchased my Pod Go from Yamaha Music London in June 2020 so it is still within its 2 yrs warranty.  I've today written to them and as Yamaha own Line 6 I have requested an explanation as to why Line 6 has not openly come out to its customers on this, and have requested that my Pod Go be 'repaired/upgraded' by Line 6. 


    I'll keep you all posted.  

    Can you say what facebook page this was posted, please? Thanks in advance.

  4. The pedal need to be cabled between the guitar and the POD Go.

    "I think the problem might be somehow software related". I guess no. And the evidence it's the wireless as a way to fix it. Why Line 6 doesn't develop that improvement in its flag ship? Because relay works like a buffer and Helix hasn't impedance issues.

  5. Dude, do an IR of the amp that do you want to use and use it. An amp it's an amp and a FRFR it's a FRFR, don't try to use an amp as a FRFR. With an IR of your amp you could use all pre amps models, but cabs sims: you only have to use the IR of the in use amp if you want to sound great. It took me 1 year learn this. YouTube it's plenty of videos of how to do an IR. Also you could just use your POD Go hooked to amp return or 4CM, always sounding great.

    Good luck.

    Pleasure. See also my comment 're global EQ in above reply.  In your circumstances, if you found the right patch settings for your set up, if you went to a gig and plugged into a different cab, global EQ could help change your overall EQ quickly. 



    So, an IR it's just another kind of equalization. I got it.

    Do you mean the 20w Joyo Bantamp Meteor?  Personally, I don't put multi Fx pedals through amps because generally I don't like the tone, even through the FX loop return. Although you're using it as a pure power-amp, so you don't get all the preamp colouring, it still colours your tone.  Some amps are better than others obviously, and ditto cabs you go through. 


    So, here's a common fallacy - 'I've got a real cab so I need to turn the cab model off' - right? Well, no - it's all down to personal taste and there are no absolute rights & wrongs. .  When you are hearing your Pod Go through headphones, with a good set you should be getting close to a flat response so that when you have the cab models turned on, you are hearing much closer to how eg a mic'd Marshall Plexi through a 4x12 Greenback cab will sound.  Plus you can fine tune the cab to taste with mic type, distance, frequency adjustments, and even boosting the dB output.  But when you go through a real cab, it will sound very different because it's completely different to the cab model you've been using ie there is no Randall 4x12 cab in Pod Go! 


    But especially if you want to turn cab models off and hear your real cab tone at its best, the single most important tonal tool you have in  your Pod Go to get the best out of an external cab is...(drum roll...) an EQ.  It's already a fixed block in Pod Go, so use it to your advantage, to shape your tone. If it's too bassy, raise the higher and mid frequencies and lower the bottom end.  Learning to use EQ, choosing the best type for your needs, setting it, and experimenting with its position in the signal chain, output levels etc, is ABSOLUTELY KEY.  EQ type is less important eg  although a graphic v parametric EQ work a little differently they both do pretty much the same thing albeit in slightly different ways.  Really investing some time to learn about EQ  and tone shaping will be, I promise you, the number one best time investment you can make.  Whilst not exactly the same thing, a cab model or IR is essentially just a type of EQ.  


    So, my first recommendation - with cab models off, use an EQ to help shape your tone from your real cab.  Second recommendation -  try putting the cab models back on, raise the dB output to eg 2-3dB for a 'bigger' feel, add on say 15-25% early relic, start with a 57 dynamic mic and experiment with distance, and mic type.  And you'll get a way nearer tone to your headphones than turning your cab off.  And still use your EQ to shape your tone.  As I said, I don't generally put my MFX through an amp, but when I do, I tend to leave the cab model on.  


    This is why Pod Go is not plug and play. Pod Go is a tool - and a very sophisticated & powerful one.  But it is incredibly versatile - you just have to invest time to learn what it can really do.  Too many users expect instant gratification, dial in high gain amps and distortions and effects, and then wonder why it sounds dreadful and blame the MFX unit.   


    For gigging, I don't use an amp - I put my MFX straight through the FOH PA.  If I need a monitor, or for rehearsals or smaller gigs, I have a powered speaker cab - a Headrush FRFR108. FRFR = full range, flat response - so I'm hearing as close to how the amp/cab model are intended to sound with virtually no colouring from the Headrush amp or speaker.  There's no right or wrong here, it's whatever works for you.  







    My cons: I use AMP OUT to play Rocksmith and FX LOOP RETURN as AUX to enter PC sound, all mentioned connections of PG. So I have to put Cab simulation at the beginig of the chain. Also plays on a Marshall AVT100X, connecting MAIN OUT L to amp Return. My axe: a cheaper Gibson Les Paul w/minihumbuckers. My Global eq in the attached image.

    My questions: where do you recommend me put the eq? I use on PG -> Cab (off), Dynamics and Distortions before amp, then FX LOOP (off), then Time fx, Mods, fx, Reverb... What eq? What values?
