  1. Yes, what you are seeing is the way it works. The POD Go must be connected for POD Go Edit to work.
  2. Perhaps there’s also an updated version of the editor application that you need to download and install?
  3. You can easily create one and save it for future reference. Edit one of the presets you want to delete and remove all amp and FX blocks by selecting None as the model.
  4. No, no way to do that. What you can do is save a customized version of any FX block as a Favorite and use that copy when adding the FX block to a preset. But later changes must be made individually in each preset. Change the Favorite version first and then replace each of the existing blocks with the modified Favorite.
  5. I would say there’s no such thing as the ‘genuine’ sound. Each sound wave transmitter (speakers, headphones, a tree falling in the forest, …) produces its own genuine sound waveform, and each sound wave receiver (ears/brain, microphones, DAW, …) creates it own genuine perception of that particular sound waveform. If there’s no receiver can the waveform itself, being carried through the air unperceived, be called ‘sound’?
  6. You delete a preset by replacing (copying) an ‘empty’ preset in its place. You don’t need to ‘make room’ for other presets. Just import/copy them over the existing preset that you want to delete.

  8. How come when I listen to a song in my tiny closet with the door closed it sounds different than when I listen to the same song in my barn?
  9. I think the best setup for you would be to get a pair of studio monitors for your home setup. What you want is FRFR monitors (Full Range Flat Response). These type of monitors are designed to minimize the tonal colouration produced by the speakers/monitors and deliver a sound as close as possible to the source signal. With this setup you should find that the sound you hear at home is at least close to the recorded sound that your recording studio captures and plays back. For best results, use the same monitors at home that are used in your recording studio. In your case - the Alto TS312. Volume level also plays a big role in the tone of the sound you hear. Your home environment may be much smaller than the room you rehearse/record in, and 12” speakers may be too big and loud for the space. Drop down to 6” or 8” FRFR monitors for home, but understand that this will not sound the same as the 12” monitors in your recording setup.
  10. The Pod Go caters well to acoustic guitars. Your acoustic presets will work best if you don’t use an amp/cab. The available FX include many varieties of the chorus and delay FX that you currently use as well as many other types of FX. Personally I don’t think you need acoustic IRs but you can certainly add them later if you’re not satisfied.
  11. Your X3 products include a license for the original Pod Farm (not Pod Farm 2). You can edit, save, and transfer between PF1 and your X3 hardware. I’m not sure about importing your Gearbox presets to Pod Farm.
  12. afaik… Yorkville (which owns L&M) is the authorized Line 6 service centre in Canada. The procedure is to bring your L6 device to any L&M store and request servicing. They hand it off to the nearest Yorkville service centre.
  13. The Amp Out signal excludes any mic/cab modelling from the Pocket Pod preset. It will not likely sound good through the PA. I would use an 1/8” stereo to 1/4” mono adapter, making sure that it sums the stereo signal to mono. Or, if a stereo signal is important use an 1/8” stereo to 2x1/4” mono adapter that retains the stereo signal. This, of course, will require two input channels on the mixer/PA. I don’t think the unbalanced signal will be a problem for small venues. EDIT: You can also try tuning the Cabinet Mode (see manual) to Direct Out and use the Amp Out jack of the Pocket Pod. It seems this will retain the preset’s cab/mic modelling in the output signal.
  14. The signals are indepedent and can be processed separately in Helix by using a dual path preset. Set the Input block of one path to Variax and the other path to Variax Mags. The Variax input uses the current active Variax model as defined in the Helix preset or by the physical model knob and pickup switch combination on the guitar. As amsdenj stated the Variax model may itself be a model/mag blend of the signals prepared by using the Workbench HD editing program.
