  1. 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....

    Can anyone recommend a single source of that information - the alternatives being to try to find the user-manuals for every original pedal that the Pod Go emulates....

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    Why didn't they call the Helix Edit ..."Helix Edit" rather than HX Edit... For a new user this just adds confusion. Good job this forum exists!

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. I haven't checked but it sounds like this was a known issue in a previous release and is no longer noted. That suggests that it was fixed.

    If you are having trouble, the most common troubleshooting steps are....

    - try a different USB cable

    - try all USB ports on your computer

    - make sure you are using the latest Line 6 driver

    - recycle the power on both your computer and Helix

  9. You’re correct - a system backup does not support restoration of individual presets. If you know which presets you have edited you can back them up individually to your computer, restore the system backup, then replace the old versions of those presets with the edited versions.


    (Note: at some point it may be worthwhile to perform a factory reset and make backup copies of all factory presets for potential future reference.)

  10. There is no official repository of factory presets for most (all?) Line 6 devices including POD Go.


    However you can use Pod Go Edit File menu to export and import both setlists and presets. You can also simply drag /drop individual presets to export and import them. So you can make your own backups at any time.


    For instance you can create a copy of all Factory presets in a single operation by selecting them all in the editor and then drag/drop the entire selection into a folder on your computer. There's your preset list.

  11. What you are experiencing is normal and due to the technical specification of the ASIO protocol which is used by Line 6 and and many other audio devices and programs. Under ASIO there can be only one audio device in use at a time, by either your PC or your DAW, and it must be both the audio input and output device. So you can’t use the POD Go as input and your other audio interface as output.


    You have a choice: either continue to use your other audio interface and connect the POD Go’s audio outputs to its inputs (I.e. no POD Go USB connection), or remove your other audio interface from the setup and use the POD Go as the audio interface device, for both input and output. In this case you would connect your speakers/headphones to the Pod Go outputs.

    Another strategy that some people use, which I do not recommend, is using a non-ASIO, or pseudo-ASIO, driver that supports different audio input and output devices. A popular one seems to be ASIO4ALL. However, since it is not a true ASIO driver it is not supported by Line 6 for use with its devices, and is known to lead to unpredictable problems depending on the PC environment in which it is being used.

  12. See manual page 11. Lots of good info in there.......


    Press VIEW, press the knob beside it, then rotate it to select either Factory or User.

  13. Where did these tones and IRs come from? Customtone? The Line 6 Marketplace?  You say you used HX Edit to do this. How, exactly?  Did you drag/drop the tones and IRs into the Edit program preset/IR locations?
