  1. Hello, I saw a post back in 2016 asking if it is possible to add MIDI foot switch to Pocket POD. (Here is the link to related post https://line6.com/support/topic/19104-pocket-pod-midi-footswitch/) In the below link you may see my solution for controlling Pocket POD using Raspberry Pi W as a MIDI controller. This video shows Pocket POD connection with Raspberry Pi Zero W https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2I2CBarQQ8 Program runs on Raspberry Pi Zero W. It is also working on Raspberry Pi Model B. You may connect your cell phone or tablet to Raspberry Pi to change presets etc. on Pocket POD. Also I have added buttons and Pots to Raspberry Pi via IO Pins. Therefore I can control Pocket POD with hardwired buttons and potentiometers. I modified a volume pedal to add wah wah control on Pocket POD. Here is the method Volume pedal pot ---> MCP3008 (ADC) ---> Raspberry Pi(running PD) -----(MIDI Control Commands) ---> Pocket POD * Only OTG cable required to connect both devices * At the end of the video I tried Wah Wah with tablet's motion sensor. I forgot my tablet does not have motion sensor :). But it works with my phone. Shake your phone and you get Wah Wah effect. See other videos for PD Patch, GUI Interface and text descriptions: Demo with Pocket POD connected to Raspberry Pi: PD & MIDI Configuration: https://youtu.be/n9fUughpuog PD GUI remote connection demo: https://youtu.be/KgRP33Cb9XA RoboRemo remote connection demo: https://youtu.be/Mi8RPiiXM-o Tablet GUI for remote (WiFi) Connection Pure Data (PD) Program on Raspberry Pi W Android Cell Phone connection over WiFi PD TCP Connection for Android
  2. Hello. I see many references on the net to a Vyzex Pocket POD Pilot's Guide PDF, but I am unable to get a copy of this document. Many of the links point to the Line 6 website, but when I click I get a message error from the site. I installed v1.17 on my Win7 computer, and would like to have access to a guide manual of the Vyzex editor program. Where can I get some literature on how to use this editor?

    Get Vyzex Software for POD

    I've searched Google and other places and can't seem to find the place to initially download the software needed to program my Pocket Pod. All places I've looked either don't look like the software or look like possible virus sights. Where should I go to download it?
  4. Hello, I'm trying to fix my pocket pod. I've got an issue where a capacitor has leaked and when I connect to the pocket pod with my headphones I hear a clicking sound. I've found other posts that have identified the cause and the capacitor that needs replacing, which I'm comfortable with doing. But, for the life of me I can't get the control knobs off so I can get to the other side of the board. Has anyone else had a crack at this? I've search around and can't find anything on it. Or, if someone is familiar with the repair am I tackling it the wrong way. Many thanks
  5. Hi, everybody! Strange case! When I use my line 6 pocket pod with power supply DC 9V and Vyzex Pocket POD direct control through USB then happen the problem with intermittent output signal loss after 30 minutes of work with device. It same happen without USB connecting... This is especially evident on fuzz effects. Thanx!
  6. Requesting for earlier Pocked Pod 1.0 firmware ppf file. Can't revert back to it and download section doesn't have it.
  7. Hi all, I am hoping that someone in farawayland can help... Mainly I play acoustic - a Martin D-28 with an Anthem SL. In need of a delay, my first choice was a Boss DD-7, but attracted by the possibility of presets, I bought a Pocket Pod. Last night I played around with various delay times and feedback and set six or so presets for particular songs. I thought that I had bypassed everything except the delay, ie: Cabinet Tuning = Direct; Cabinet Model = No Cab, but after the first set today I had to unplug from the Pocket Pod, because it had affected my tone so much. Everything was very toppy - nicely balanced across all frequencies, but completely lacking "fullness". Again, I am pretty sure that through Vyzex I had all possible culprit switches turned off - particularly EQ. Last minute, last night, I was setting the presets through my Genelec monitors in my control room and suspected that there was some serious colouring happening, but I don't normally put the Anthem SL through those monitors! A sensible guitarist would have set up the PA and realised that there was an issue. As it's the silly season, I suspect that Support won't be free to answer questions, but as it is the silly season I have quite a lot of gigs so would appreciate any words of wisdom. Thanks muchly...
  8. Hi I just bought a used Pocket POD and decided to update the firmware (flash). Well the update has been running for over an hour now, see attached image. Suggestions? Thank you in advance David

    Pocket Pod grounding issue

    Hey people I've been using my Pocket Pod for some time and the background humming/buzzing from the device not being grounded is really annoying. What do others do to ground the device? I've found that connecting the "MP3-in port" to my PC grounds it perfectly, however, I am not able to ground it using my phone as an example
  10. Hello there! I bought a used Pocket Pod and it doesn't have any presets: the 4 way button doesn't recall any settings as it should according to the manual. I tried syncing Pocket Pod factory SQS file, but transfer status is stuck at "Now syncing entire set to Pocketpod". What am I doing wrong? Please help. Thanks.
  11. Hi, I had a problem many people complain about and few get answered. My Pocket POD worked perfectly on my desktop, but on the laptop it did not. Every time I connected the USB to any laptop port the POD worked for a few seconds to a minute, then suddenly shutdown and rebooted. I tweaked USB power settings, I changed out multiple USB cables. I moved to different ports. Sometimes everything seemed to be resolved only to have it do a sudden reboot once again. By chance while googling various phrases to find a solution I randomly discovered that a wireless mouse may be interfering with MIDI. I changed my wireless mouse to a wired mouse and the problem was solved.

    Vyzex kills Pocket POD

    I just installed Vyzex onto a 2012 MBP running El Cap. Plugged the guitar cable in, plugged the USB into the rear USB port. The Computer reports new midi ports available. My Pocket POD did not power up (it was working minutes before). Vyzex asks me to configure midi ports. Then offers a grey screen/window. LED next to TAP button flashes every second or so. Unit is otherwise dead. After removing the USB and powering the POD down, re-inserting the Guitar cable now cannot wake/boot the pod. The TAP light still flashes and is responsive to tap timing changes. Phones with a guitar in are dead apart from a faint "machine" hum. Tried factory reset. Nada. Any ideas on what to do next? The PPod is relatively new and the software undoubtably affected it.
  13. Hello, can someone help me? search settings for my Pocket POD Drowning Pool - Tear Away Placebo - The Bitter End Arctic Monkeys - 505 nothing found here in "Custom Tone"
  14. Hi, I tried to connect with Line 6 Monkey Version 1.72 to my pocket POD. But here is no pocket POD in the dropdown box of the devices... Must I use another, compatible device? Thx!
  15. Hi could someone please help me I have just got a second hand pocket pod and I'm trying to download custom tones for it. but I cant find the software for it I'm running windows 10. any help would be appreciated. andy
  16. I am a brand new Pocket Pod user (and very new to electronic music stuff). When I (for example) set the 'DRIVE' pot to maximum, then when I hold down Save/ALT and turn that same POT the BASS will have been set to max. So assume that I want Max DRIVE and middle BASS, if I then set BASS (hold down SAVE and turn the DRIVE/BASS pot) to the middle, the DRIVE will also have been changed to the middle setting. All the POTS seem to work this way and this just seems wrong to me. How do I independently set DRIVE vs. BASS, EFFECTS vs MID, etc? Or is the "other" setting unchanged until you tweak the pot? Thank you. dave
  17. Hi everyone, I signed up to post this because I searched and couldn't find a solution, but have found something that works for me. I bought a second hand Pocket Pod some time ago. It's possible that it is a faulty unit, but I always had noise issues with it. The noise was constant and sounded like a single coil pickup in a noisy environment, even though I was using a humbucker in a quiet environment. The noise was there even when using battery power and headphones - i.e. nothing was plugged into the wall. I noticed that when I used a guitar with active pickups, the noise wasn't there. So I figured it might be to do with the impedance. I tried putting a pedal with a high impedance output in front of the Pod (EHX LPB-1 -> 10k ohm on the output) and playing through passive pickups - bingo! The noise was gone. The unit is now dead silent, like plugging into an amp. The quality of the amp sims is now much more apparent so I might even do some recording with the unit, whereas before it felt more like a toy or late night practice rig. I couldn't find anything in the manual which specifies that the Pocket Pod requires a high impedance input, so I don't know, perhaps my unit is faulty. But this worked for me so hopefully it will help someone else out there. cheers, - Steve.
  18. Where can i find Vyzex for the pocket pod? I looked all over and cannot find it anywhere. Saw it on U-tube but nowhere else.
  19. The screen on my Pocket Pod has only orange backlight but not seen any other characters, but is working with the menu can be changing presets. Any idea how to fix? Thanks
  20. Hello. Updating to Win10 my pocket pod is no more recognized from the software Vyzex while plugging on usb port on PC. I had no problems under Win 8.1. Does someone have a solution (excluding to go back to Win 8.1)? Regards
  21. So I've had my Pocket POD for a while, and it was working pretty well until it was dropped on a hard floor. Ever since, it randomly cuts out the sound (and the LED light freezes), which is sometimes fixable by jiggling the guitar input jack, or by giving it a few whacks. Otherwise, it just starts to fuzz, then emit a high-pitched sound, and then shuts off, then right back on again, working normally. Sometimes when this happens and I hit it, the screen just displays a few black bars on the left-hand side, which go away after a few more slaps. Oh, and when I turn my amp volume up, the POD seems to be making this crackly sound, kind of like a buzz. Is some of my hardware messed up? Please help me, I have a gig I want to jam at soon! Thanks a lot for your time!!
  22. Ok it's just a Pocket POD but here is my issue. If you say the word Tack like I do (Southerner with just a touch of Northerner), it's two syllables "Tah-acK" with a hard T and a hard K. Very often when I hit a note on the guitar (send a signal to the Pocket POD), it produces this metronome-with-echo-like tack sound which constantly repeats. At that point I usually turn off the unit. Sometimes when I turn it back on the tack sound is gone, but then it usually comes back after a while. I bought the unit new - through Sweetwater; it's definitely out of warranty...so in your opinion is it just a failed electric part, SRAM, diode, resistor...and I should just toss the thing and look for a better product?? Thanks for reading…and considering the problem!
  23. Help a newbie please. I just got my Pocket Pod yesterday (love it!). I have found that when I set a feature using the control knobs, it seems to set the alternate, as well as the default feature, at the same time (and vise-versa). For example, I turn the Effects knob all the way down, it displays "Efx" while I do so. I then hold down the Save button while setting the "Mid" range all the way up, it displays "Mid" while doing so. However, if I then set the knob back kto the "Effects" mode, I discover that it is now turned all the way up as well. I don't know if I am doing something wrong, or if this is expected behaviour? Thanks, Skip
  24. Every time I open Vyzex, no MIDI ports of any kind are detected. I've tried everything from the troubleshooting PDF. Nothing has helped. I am running windows 7 on a laptop without ANY logitech software for the Pocket Pod. On the port selection screen where it says, "Select all of the ports you intend to use with this program" nothing appears in the box beneath. I've tried all the PDFs for troubleshooting that came with Vyzex and am losing patience. If it helps, my search for LVUSBSTA in the registry turn no results whatsoever. I've also attached all of the windows pertaining to the MIDI trouble. Hopefully, it turns useful. I'd greatly appreciate help with this matter. It shouldn't take more than 2 hours of failure to continue failing to load one custom tone on the Pocket POD.
  25. Hello all, my first post here. I just purchased a Pocket Pod, used. I'm having a lot of problems with it. Sometimes the sound is clear using earphones and sometimes it's all messed up....static, hissing, terrible noises. Sometimes it works well, other times it's really bad. In addition, I connected it to my Windows 7 PC via USB, which recognizes the Pocket Pod. However, when I attempt to record with it, the computer does not receive any sound. I don't see it listed anywhere in my "Sound Configuration". I'm using Mixcraft to record and the Pocket Pod is listed under "Midi" and not as a normal sound input device. But it's not a Midi unit, right? Do I have to install any software to get it to work on the computer (I tried 2 different computers)? I installed "Line 6 Monkey", but it asks what device I want to configure and the Pocket Pod is not shown on the long list of Line 6 devices. So how do I configure "Monkey" for the Pocket Pod? Do I need this software for the computer to fully recognize the Pod so I can record? Sorry guys, but I'm lost here. I could really use some help. Thanks, Gene
