  1. Don’t be silly. It’s the opposite of a micro. Everybody knows that!
  2. Not directly. The HD 500X has no Bluetooth capability. I haven’t searched but there might be some product that connects to a normal analog audio output and converts the signal to Bluetooth audio which it can then transmit to Bluetooth headphones.
  3. Yes, you can have a preset for each song and use the VIEW button to navigate easily between Preset mode and Stomp mode.The MODE switch and global settings give you lots of additional flexibility in controlling the operation in terms of of switches and displays. If you haven't already read the manual I suggest you do so. It will give you lots of insight and ideas regarding how to tailor the POD Go for your own situation. Also. since you already have an M9 you can use that in the FX Loop of the POD Go to make sure you're not constrained by the POD Go's limitation of 4 flex blocks.
  4. I suggest you open a support ticket if you haven’t already done so.
  5. If your computer is able to run Windows 10 it is able to run POD Go Edit. Try different USB ports on your computer, especially the ports on the back panel not the front panel. Avoid using a USB hub, such as the internal hidden ones behind the computer’s front panel. Try a different USB cable.
  6. The POD HD500X is an audio interface. Connect your headphones or speakers to the POD outputs and connect the POD to your computer via USB. By default the POD becomes your computer’s soundcard so you will hear all computer-generated audio as well as your guitar from the POD outputs. i know.... “but I wanna hear it from my computer speakers”. Why? The POD is a much better soundcard than your computer’s internal soundcard. Why would you want to hear an inferior sound? If that’s what you want, why not use the $2 earbuds you bought ten years ago to watch an in-flight movie? That will really bring the POD’s sound quality to its knees!
  7. Your screenshot indicates that, as spaceatl said, you do not have the Line 6 driver installed. You highlight a 'Standard USB Hostcontroller'r; that's not the correct driver. The correct driver should have been installed with the POD Go Edit download package. If you haven't downloaded and installed that program you should do so. Also, I notice that you have a Logitech Webcam device installed. Logitech and Line 6 drivers can sometimes conflict. Try temporarily disconnecting your webcam to test.
  8. I think you’re overreacting a bit to a sincere attempt to provide you with helpful information. In your initial post you did mention having done some internet research but you did not mention that you had read the manual. Please consider your post from the reader/mod’s perspective. This is your very first post on these forums. We know absolutely nothing about you. One of the worst things we can do as mods is assume anything about a new poster’s background or experience. We only know what you tell us. Over time, if you begin to interact here more frequently, we can build up some knowledge about you. You would be surprised at how frequently new users here have not read the manual that clearly answers their question. As mods we try to avoid the truly condescending remark of RTFM. Note that psarkissian did not say that. You would also be surprised at the number of first time posters who receive exactly the response that psarkissian provided - a helpful link to the manual - and respond back with ‘thanks for the help’. I don’t think his response was condescending at all. I think it was potentially helpful and I’m sure it was offered in that spirit. Psarkissian had no idea how you would respond, so simply provided the link with no commentary that could be misinterpreted. We now know that you don’t ask questions without doing thorough due diligence. We didn’t know that before.
  9. You might find this interesting... https://blog.line6.com/2020/05/18/breaking-the-analog-model-why-surrender-to-hardwares-limitations/
  10. I think you're missing perhaps the most important difference between a modeler and a physical amp/cab. A modeler is designed to create the sound of a MIC'd cab as heard (and further processed) in the control room of a recording studio. In that context it is perfectly normal to apply time-based FX in the control room (mixing console) post-amp/cab. A modeler does not attempt to recreate the sound of an amp in the room, where the restriction you point out does apply.
  11. POD Go Edit allows you to backup (export) individual setlists and presets as well as creating a system backup. All I mean is that you should make whatever backups you want before restoring the factory settings.
  12. 1) Yes. 2). A factory reset restores the factory setlist, the empty User setlist, and the default global settings. Restoring a system backup restores all three of those things to their state when you backed it up. A firmware installation leaves the setlists as they are but installs the new firmware and set global settings to their default values in that firmware. 3) Use the version of the Line 6 Updater program that was installed when you installed POD Go Edit and updated your POD Go firmware to v1.11. There’s also this....
  13. Have you tried a factory reset? Back up both setlists first. Then hold down the C & D switches while powering up. If that fails to resolve it try reinstalling the firmware.
  14. When you arm a track for recording in Reaper, what USB channel(s) from the POD Go are you selecting as the input source?
  15. There’s nothing from Line 6 on this except the generalities that you will find in manuals such as page 21 of the POD Go manual. However there is a very detailed reference site at helixhelp.com that you may find useful. It still requires consulting the manufacturer’s manuals for the details you seek but it conveniently provides direct links to that information where it exists.
  16. Lower the volume in your computer's sound settings.

    GO vs Helix

    Yes. You can route the POD Go Send output to the power amp/cab and the main output to FOH. In terms of preset you will probably want the POD Go Cab/IR to be the last block in the signal chain and the FX Loop to be placed immediately before it.
  18. The M20d does perform well as an audio interface for recording directly to a PC/DAW. It does perform well as an audio output device for playback of PC audio, so you can use it to play along with your PC-generated click track and backing tracks, but you won’t be able to record your play-along and have it sync’ed with the backing track. There is too much latency. You can also pre-load your backing tracks onto a USB/SD media device and play those using the M20d without your PC connected. This wouldn’t give you a real-time click track though, and there would be no simultaneous recording. The. bottom line is: The M20d is not designed to be an audio interface for recording.
  19. Because prior to the release of HX Edit the Helix librarian program was simply called Helix. I presume it was decided that calling the new editor Helix Edit would be more confusing given the existing Helix program. HX Edit is more differentiated.
  20. 1) No, the POD Go does not include a drum machine. Yes, you can connect your external drum machine to the POD Go’s FX Return input. 2) The POD Go has a looper but if you use a looper heavily you should keep your external looper. Using both an external drum machine and looper simultaneously will require an external mixer to feed both signals into the POD Go’s FX Return input. 3) The POD Go has a monophonic pitch shifter like Helix. Good for single notes, not so good with chords.
  21. Anyone having this issue after updating to the latest firmware should open a support ticket.
  22. Yes, just remove the amps and cab/IRs from the HeLix LT preset. If your amp has an FX Loop you can use the 4CM connection method to have the flexibility of placing your LT FX before or after your amp’s preamp section.

    Preset List

    To be able to restore individual presets you need to back them up as individual presets. You can also save individual setlists, but you can’t restore individual presets from a saved setlist. There three levels of save/backup capabilities: presets, setlists, and system (including global settings). You can’t mix and match presets and setlist but I believe you can choose which setlists you want to restore from a system backup (at least you can in Helix; not sure about POD Go). As described earlier, you can save multiple, or all, presets in a setlist in a single operation and then you’ll have them as individual presets.
