  1. Well known issue. Will be fixed soon, probably in next update.

    If you’re considering buying ‘a bunch of cheap guitars’ I would definitely buy a Variax instead. The more recent models, from JTV onward in my opinion, are very nice to play with a good build quality. And features like alternate tuning and Helix integration combined with the variety of models make the Variax a very fun and flexible instrument. And then, of course, there’s Workbench HD for even more fun and flexibility!
  3. Yes you will be able to keep (or replace at no cost) your Helix Native license. There may be some account administration that Line 6 will need to do because there are some time constraints concerning the Helix hardware ownership and the license validity. I would open a support ticket with Line 6 before you make the hardware exchange and explain the situation to them. They will advise you if you need to do anything and also do whatever they may need to do.
  4. You need to update your firmware. V1.32 is very old and does not support the HD packs. You probably also need to update the drivers and the POD HD Edit program. Download and install the latest version of Line 6 Monkey first. Then use it to download and install the latest versions of all other components. After purchasing the Fully Loaded bundle you will need to download, install and run the Line 6 License Manager.
  5. I don’t think you can arrange things to do exactly what you want, but perhaps others can describe how. There are other traditional workarounds. For instance you could use the Vol pedal itself. Save the presets/snapshots with the Vol at some medium level and push it to the toe position when desired. As mentioned above you may have to customize some global settings re: snapshot edits and pedal position recall. Of course there’s always the guitar Vol knob.....
  6. You can temporarily move from 8 Snap mode to Stomp mode by pressing the Mode foot switch. Then you can activate/deactivate your Vol boost pedal (I suggest using the Gain model). Then use the Mode switch again to return to the 8 Snap view. You will need to understand how the Global Setting for Snapshot Edits works to control whether you want a change in the Vol boost effect to carry over between snapshot changes or revert to the saved state in the next snapshot when you change snapshots.
  7. Depending on your choice in studio monitors you will probably have options of 1/4", XLR. or RCA inputs. Your POD Go outputs are 1/4" so you will want cables that are 1/4" on one end and 1/4", XLR, or RCA on the other end. Fortunately your POD Go output signal level can be set to match any of these options. And don't worry if that last bit makes no sense to you right now. It soon will.
  8. I agree that the POD Go with a good pair of studio monitors (min. 6”) is the way to go. It will be the simplest introduction for you to the world of digital gear.
  9. As of firmware v3.0 you can assign Looper functions to any foot switch in Stomp mode. Detailed info is in the v3.0 manual and probably in the v3.0 release notes as well.
  10. 20A Money For Nothin’ - Dire Straits 19D ? Sandman - Metallica ? There’s a thread here somewhere that discusses how the factory preset names correlate to their corresponding songs.
  11. Yeah - there are different ways to look at pricing of .... anything, really. One method might be called value pricing, where the price reflects some intrinsic value of an item. In this framework there is really no difference between a used and new piece of software, whatever that means (assuming of course that is the same software, not an upgraded version of something). Another method might be called market pricing where all that matters is the price that a seller is willing to accept and a buyer is willing to pay. Underlying value has very little to do with it. In this case a seller is willing to offer and accept a discounted price, for whatever reason. The stock markets operate like this until periodically everyone agrees that the pricing is way above or below the underlying value, resulting in a crash or surge. No right or wrong, just different viewpoints. If you can get a significant discount that's great for you. Personally as the seller I'd be less inclined to offer a significant discount. And that probably means I wouldn't find a buyer quickly and the 'used' market would beat my price down until I could! Hope you find it at a price you like. Glad I'm not wanting to sell my license.
  12. I’m curious. How is a ‘used’ piece of software any different from the same software in ‘new’ condition? I expect you think it should be worth less. Why?

    No sound.

    Global EQ is handy when you’re playing different venues. It can help adjust for the differences in the different room dynamics when you move from gig to gig, or from home to band practice location. However I would avoid using it for now; it really has no role to play if you’re always in the same location imho. It applies globally, meaning to all presets. You really don’t want to have to start tweaking it each time you change presets. (P.S. I’m two years older than you. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?)

    I should probably elaborate on my earlier response for a more complete understanding.... In the case of using POD Go Edit your computer is actually not involved at all with any audio. The Edit program and the POD Go device exchange command and control data over USB - not audio. All audio continues to be produced by the POD Go device. Think of your computer running the Edit program as a remote controller providing a more useful user interface. The fact that the POD Go device becomes your computer’s soundcard is important to understand when you want to play along with backing tracks or other audio that actually is being produced by your computer (YouTube, Spotify, etc.). That’s when the audio from the two devices (POD Go and computer) are mixed in the POD Go and monitored through the POD Go audio outputs.

    There are no dumb questions. Just dumb people for being reluctant to ask! ;-)
