  1. The HX Stomp has an input impedance circuit that can be configured by software (user selectable).  It would be great if the Pod Go did as well and just needs a firmware change.  If that's not the case, I wonder if the EQ block could be configured to offset any input losses?  I know it's not the same but could be better then packing a extra buffer.  The Pod Go is a great unit!  Its UI, tone, and portability are unmatched in my opinion.


    Fingers crossed for next firmware release!!!

  2. Maybe they can fix it with a firmware update!!  Fingers crossed, if they can control input impedance via software.  I think they let each effect block simulate its original input impedance on some of there digital effects.  Did the dude doing the actual measurements (thanks by the way, @ben_craven), try different effects for the first effect block? 


    If this turns out to be a design oversight, line6 could make it right with a low cost hw input buffer.  It could plug into the guitar input socket with a 1/4 " input of its own and use a pigtail power off the main power jack.

    I have this problem and for all I know, doesn't have an easy fix. If you think in real amps world, doing such a drastic parameter change will do exactly what Pod GO does... a volume bump.

    changing snapshots or modifiing the last output parameter doesn't solve the problem. changing between preset is not an option due to lag. 


    I managed to tame the bump using a Deluxe compressor just after the cab. so  The bump is not so drastic. good luck


    Thanks Sebabetto,  I will give that a try.  I believe this is a digital world problem.  Analogue amps should not have this problem.  I think in the digital world this is a tough problem to solve.  I wonder if using Snapshot mode vs Stomp mode makes a different.  The way to solve this is to apply all settings at the same time or apply  boosts last.  I wouldn't mind a volume drop.  The volume bump is unsettling.

  4. To simulate an amp channel switch of clean to dirty, I adjust the gain and channel volume to maintain a somewhat constant level.  When switching gain and channel volume I hear an unexpected volume boost/bump during the switch (button press).  I assume the parameters are applied one at a time and there is a small time between each parameter.  If gain goes up before chan vol goes down then a bump will occur until chan vol is applied.  Am I missing something?  I hope there is a way to work around this??

    I also have trouble switching between snapshots between clear and distorted sound. The volume turns off for a tenth of a second and then stabilizes. It is very uncomfortable for the ears. This does not happen between distorted sounds. E.g. sound distorted and for solo. 


    I don't speak English, it's through a translator

    I also notice a delay between parameter changes when switching multiple amp parameters with a button switch.  For example when switching gain and channel volume I hear an unexpected volume boost during the switch??  I would recommend a change to apply the channel volume parameter last in regards to the other parameters if a delay is unavoidable.


    This is a bummer because I really like the amp tones far above the dirt pedals in the HX tones.

  6. So sometimes I hold a foot switch down long enough for it to switch from Stomp play screen to the edit select bypass button screen.  Then I look down and cannot let if the button is on or off and need to press it again to find out and sometimes It was in  the right state and I just enabled the effect at the wrong time.  Granted using a button to enable/disable a tremlo for a phrase in "Whats the frequency Kenneth" might be the wrong thing.  It still seems like it should just be disabled in play view.  Am I missing a configuration option to to this?




  7. I am seeing my Windows 10 PC reboot when using the HX Stomp (fw 3.10) and jamming along with youtube songs.  I would suspect a driver issue but when the PC reboots I hear what sounds like the PC power supply cutting out.  The PC keeps trying to restart but cuts off almost instantly and repeats.  If I power off the HX Stomp the PC boots fine??  I know the HX Stomp driver is not involved at this low running level (BIOS).  I have other USB interfaces and have never seen this problem.  Is anyone else seeing a similar issue?


    PS - Love this pedal.




  8. I have the hd500 and the gt001, I think the gt has better clean tones and the hd better crunch (low gain to breakup). They both are similar in the high gain dept, to each there own. I don't have the hd model packs so not sure about those. I also like the gt001 for bass over the hd. Just my 2 cents.
