  1. Save yourself some time and just get Helix Native. A lot less trouble and saves a lot of time compared to printing tracks.
  2. It looks to me like your FX Loop level is set extremely low. You are running a funky gain structure to have level that low in your recording. The clipping you might be hearing could be whatever you have down steam in the GO. It sorta looks like maybe you are running instrument level on a line level pedal...hard say without actually knowing what your pedals are.
  3. You could try calling them. If you are in the period where the dealer will exchange, then I think you should go ahead and exchange...If you go the warranty route, you will either have to find a service center or send it back to Line 6...Better to let the dealer deal with that if you have the option. Just to be clear, I have not seen a single lockup since updating to 1.12....I have never seen the boot up with no sound...I think your issue is hardware if you have updated to 1.12.
  4. It happened to me prior to 1.12 (screen freeze on boot)....I have not seen it happen since installing this update. Booting with no sound is something I have never seen myself. I think you should consider exchanging it if you are still in the period to do so as that sounds like a defect unrelated to firmware from what I have experienced.
  5. It happened to me when my Windows 10 updated last week...I installed the current driver patch and it came back fine. Make sure you unplug the GO USB from the computer while installing. To be specific, the driver was working with Windows audio, but the ASIO would not initialize in the reaper and was missing.
  6. I think the only way that would work would be with the AMP Out set to PRE CAB/IR....But you sorta need the IR to make the headrush sound right as that mode is really intended for a conventional guitar amp....I think another way you could try working around this might be using the FX Loop....If you stick the FX Loop at the end of the chain and use a Y-cable, you could jump the loop and tap the output...That should be sans playback...kind of a hack, but if you are not using the loop, it's doable and you could take it stereo as well to the headrush.
  7. I would suggest that you use the AMP OUT of the POD GO to drive the headrush....Use the main outs for the hifi like you are doing already....You will need to set the AMP out in the system to mirror the main outs...Don't use a speaker cable for a line signal...use a signal cable. It won't hurt anything to use it, it would just likely be kinda noisy.
  8. Try Reaper. You'll be glad you did.
  9. 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.
  10. 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....
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
