  1. Try Reaper. You'll be glad you did.
  2. ground loop...so is the computer a laptop or desktop? if it's a laptop, the buzz might might get better if you run on battery. Another thing to try is insure that the amp and computer are on the same grounded circuit and the ground is actually a good ground. Or if they are on the same circuit, try putting one of them on another circuit. reverse direct box....So another way to isolate the tube amp (or some other ground loop sensitive device) from the computers is to run thru a direct box backwards with the ground lifted...You would need a 1/4 TRS to female XLR...then just a normal 1/4 1/4 patch to the amp.... AVR - Automatic Voltage Regulator power supply....You could put your amp or the computer on one of these. The benefit of using a transformer on the power is that it makes ground loop impossible.
  3. USB cable from GO to computer AND insure that you hook your speakers up to the GO LR outputs. In the audio preferences of you DAW application, make sure that you have the GO selected as the device. Then when you create a track, you should see up to 6 available input options, 1 mono, 2 mono, 1&2 stereo, 3 mono, 4 mono and 3&4 stereo....Something like that...It varies a bit between the DAWs but you just need to remember that 1&2 are wet and 3&4 are dry and the manifest on the track where you would select the input you want....
  4. Pod Go is probably the better choice. HD does have some additional capability, but it will take you twice as long to get under the HD500 as it would for the Go...As long as the Go has enough for you in terms of FX I think it would be the better choice.
  5. I use my Pod GO almost exclusively for bass both 4 and 5 string.works great Yea, the internet if full of it sometimes. voltage is voltage....A bass could damage speakers in an open back cabinet if it is run to clipping...The low frequency can tear the motor apart...but inside a pedal...no, not really...it might overload it a little, but that is just overdriving a preamp inside preamp...If a bass guitar blows it up, then it wasn't very well designed to start with.
  6. One note, when you are installing the driver...make certain that the GO USB is unplugged...Only plug it in when the dialog tells you.
  7. most likely something else is using it. I use Reaper also and ASIO goes unavailable in Reaper when I switch to Sound Forge to edit a file (I have it set for ASIO also). But as soon as I close Sound Forge the driver comes back on in Reaper. This happens on the fly and no restarting of anything is required. I am also using Windows 10. Make sure Windows Sound is using the Sound Mapper and not the POD directly. This could lock up ASIO for everything. Do NOT use ASIO4ALL, that will completely mess up your rig. It's not needed any more. There was a time in the past where it might have been helpful, but it is a dated remediation approach now.
  8. You need to put a dummy plug in the guitar input of the Flextone to turn the power amp mute off. I have a 3XL...FYI, the flextone powers up with the FX Loop enabled...shortboard isn't needed...However, it is still a good idea to save the flextone patch with the loop on in case you bump a patch button.
  9. POD Go doesn't have midi, so you will be tap dancing with this setup. Easiest thing to do would be put the HX FX in the Loop of the GO...Use the Go AMP Out to the Power amp in of your amp....run the GO main outs to your monitors (PA)....It will take time to tweak and you will have to change patches manually between the two units....If you are new to modeling and really want that much capability, I am curious why you did not opt for a Helix LT.
  10. Thanks! I was going to mention the volume pedal approach. But I actually do it inverted when I use it...MIN 100% and MAX 80% depending on the tone....That allows for wah rhythm volume setting instead of lead volume...just depends on the situation tho.
  11. Here's a simple one if you are not using the FX Loop FX Loop Jumper - jump the FX Loop with a patch cable and set the level to what you need for a boost when on. The nice thing about this is you can place the loop in front of the amp for cleaner tones and drive the amp harder for the lead or after the amp and before the FX for more saturated tones. Simple and effective...just use the fx Loop button for the boost and you can tweak the exact level you need per patch.
  12. There is one thing you can try in the Device Manager for the USB interfaces. Check the Power Management configuration. A lot of times, a BSOD on any USB streaming connection will be caused by Power Management kicking in on the USB Controller. This is a fairly deep setting, but you can set it not to sleep the device. Sometimes this can help. It at least eliminates it as a cause. Sometimes, modern laptops will have a legacy mode switch in the BIOS for USB. Additionally, there can be lower level motherboard firmware and bios updates that can help with USB UART problems. This is a problem in the HAL in Windows. Unfortunately, you may have to dig a bit to figure out how to get it working. This can involve going around the manufacturer of you laptop to get a chipset driver directly from the OEM. Not sure what your chipset is, but it seems to be AMD based.
  13. Have you visited the system menu to look at the amp out and main out configuration? The amp out will only work if you put the FX Loop in front of the Cab model...unless it is configured to be a Main out....That is a nice way to get mono out from. the end of the chain. AMP Out when configured as Pre Cab/IR will take signal right before the cab model....Main outs take signal from the end of the chain. The amp out can be configured to behave like main out.
  14. Oh I see, I misread your post...I thought you had no sound for some reason. my bad...move the cab to immediately after the amp model. Or...you could move it to the end of the chain and use the AMP OUT. for your FX Return....That is only useful if you Master volume works post return of the amp... Not sure if that is it, I thing something might be up with your output config....maybe your main outs are set to pre cab or something.
  15. curious, maybe the amp model bypass volume is turned all the way down? I just noticed your Loop is after the amp model.
