  1. If you have a Vax, then you are better off just setting up a drop D, C#, B or A tuning on the VAX than trying to use a pitch block. It does feel weird, but it will be more convincing IMO.
  2. I have an older Sony VAIO that has first generation USB 3.0 in the chipset...There are only 2 ports on it and one is 2.0 only and the other is 3.0...If I use the 3.0 port, I will get a BSOD anywhere from a few minutes to several hours...never happens on the 2.0 only port. HD came out about the same time the earliest 3.0 capable interfaces came around and there were a lot of issues and not all USB implementations are created equally. Ideally, they would be. Insure that your BIOS, chipset drivers and any other motherboard firmware is up to date. You might check your BIOS settings for things related to USB...Power management, USB 3.0, Legacy....etc.... The other thing to look at are the ports themselves on your computer. HD will generally not cooperate on ports that are on hubs...One example where this can be overlooked is using the front ports on a desktop...Most of the time, the motherboard with have an embedded hub for the front ports. Similar thing in laptops...Usually the left side with be the embedded hub to provide more ports. Sometimes this issue is as easy to solve as switching ports...just depends.
  3. It's all about what blocks you want to hear or not hear in the main out vs amp out when it is set to IR/Cab...So if you wanted your amp dry and your DI wet, it could be useful to have FX after the IR block...If you want all the FX in both then you have to move the cab to the end. If Amp out is set to Main, then the only advantage might be post FX that have a bit more of a hi-fi quality because they are not attenuated by the IR... In my case, I use an FRFR monitor, so I use the AMP Out for the House Direct and the Main out for my monitor...That way the volume is fixed for FOH and and I can turn my monitor up and down using the Go Master. For my usage, I always have the cab block as the end because sometimes I will use a provided backline amp...In that case I use the same patch, change the amp out setting to IR/Cab....Amp out goes to the power amp in of the amp I am using and Main out goes to house. I don't ever want anything FX wise going to the main out that isn't in the amp out. My preference.
  4. It depends on what you are doing and your preferences....If you were performing live with a conventional guitar amp and you wanted that to be dry using directs to PA that are wet then maybe the first approach is better...If you wanted to run a Left(wet) Center(dry) Right(wet) setup the first approach would be what you need. If you are not using the amp out, then you might get a bit more of a high fi result from the first approach where the second approach is a bit more realistic in terms of signal chain with a conventional rig. If you are using the amp out with a conventional amp and feeding directs to PA and prefer to hear your FX in the amp, then approach 2 is what you need... That some basic situations, but chain order is subjective to the material and tone that is needed....Whatever gets you want for the song is the right approach.
  5. I have not checked this particular verb as I hardly ever use it for my own stuff...However, digital reverbs generally can be prone to oscillate harmonics that couple in the the form of overtones...distortion is the place to start...More saturation adds more harmonic content...if it couples, the reverb can start resonating those...As voxman55 alluded to, the more radical things are set, the more likely this can happen with a reverb....Without hearing what your are talking about and no information on your particular patch, it's hard to guess, but your description sounds like oscillations from a verb being a bit too long...

    Amp out POD GO

    depends on what you are trying to do...I use the AMP out to feed an FRFR monitor....I use it in PRE/IR Mode when I use a conventional guitar amp instead...But I am just hitting the power amp input, so I am always using the amp block....Not sure what you are doing but it seems like you are alluding to 4CM.
  7. What did not work? Your problem is not clear.
  8. If you want to protect your gear from noisy venue power, you could consider using an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) between the venue and your rig. A side-effect of putting a transformer on the input power is that ground loops are impossible thru a transformer. Much less trouble than a battery IMO. I use a Tripp Lite LC2400. Inexpensive and does the job.
  9. Have you tried global reset?...Sometimes that will clear a logo boot loop. Might be worth trying another USB port or even a different computer...if you still get the error, it might be bricked. Power Up and Nav Pad Right = TEST mode and Safe Mode - used to test button and expression pedal functionality as well as to recalibrate the expression pedal. You can avoid some flash memory update issues by updating in this mode Power Up and Nav Pad Down = direct access to Flash Memory update mode - good if you need to update your flash memory and cannot access update mode in any other way Power Up and Nav Pad Left = Global Parameters Reset - can get you out of a start-reboot loop if the patch you last used is corrupted because it defaults back to Set List 1 Best of HD 1A Son of Plexi - if you use this with the POD HD500 you will need to recalibrate the expression pedal and rename Set Lists 5-8 back to whatever they were named prior to resetting the Global Parameters
  10. I have had a pair of Alto TS212 monitors for about 4 years that are still working great for me as monitor for the Pod or as a little PA when I need it for that. I think the current model is TS312.
  11. I've not heard of this...But it would not surprise me if it is real. Line 6 has done all kinds of side editions of many products over the years...What I wonder is what is special about it.

    Podgo clipping

    Maybe you had the PAD turned on prior to updating to 1.21? Known Issues in 1.21 Global Settings > In/Outs > Guitar In Pad is not recalled after turning POD Go off and back on again. Unfortunately, this will need to be manually toggled after each power cycle before it begins working again
  13. All BOSS pedals are buffered. Buffer is just another word for preamp...active and requiring power even for bypass.

    Well, this is odd.

    glitches between Edit and a POD have been going on since I have been using PODs...It is much improved since HD, Helix and GO have come around. Outside of the factory reset, insure you are on the latest firmware and Edit. Additionally You could check the Power Management settings on the USB controller of your laptop...Generally, laptops will be configured with power saving settings by default. Make sure power management on the USB controller is disabled when on power...When power management kicks in, it can cause synch to get whacked...or maybe you just have older firmware and it's an old issue.
