HansD Posted October 2, 2020 Share Posted October 2, 2020 Hi there, First of all I run my Pod Go through 2 Fender Tweed Amps, clean. (main out L+R to the front of both Amps, no Eff. send/return ), amp models/cabs off, so only using the effects. the reason I chose the Pod Go cause of it's simplicity, all the effects I need, expressionpedal, master volume....in other words a brilliant device which is portable and light. To go back to what I've been playing on the last 10 years; same setup, but first with a M13 and then a POD HD 500( which I Love both cause I love the M Series effects that they both use and are also part of the POD GO effect list). Now here is my problem; When I connect the Pod Go to my amps the tone is altered severely ( you can hear it even more clear when you bypass all the effects). I feel al the sparkle out of the amps have gone. With all my other machines ( M13, Pod HD 500, Axe AX8) it doesn't affect my amp tones so the typical sparkle of my amps stay. When I A/B the direct amp sound against the bypassed Pod Go sound it's a huge difference. I should think that a new machine shouldn't be giving these changes if 10+ year old machines don't have this form of tone suck. I have tried everything I could think of to see if there would be changes, DB changes, line level, EQ,Global EQ, connect to one amp, amp out, etc. but nothing changed. I almost start to believe I have a faulty POD GO( it's updated and even tried a factory reset) Is any one out there that has the same issues with a conventional AMP(front in)-POD GO-Guiar setup or have heard the tone suck when A/B Amp versus Amp with POD GO? Or maybe someone has a solution which I overlooked.... I hope some Line 6 experts are reading this post too, cause I know a lot of people use the POD GO with the Amp/Cabmodels into an FRFR or go directly FOH, but the machine is also marketed and promoted for conventional use. I hope there is an explanation/solution for this problem, cause I was planning to take the POD GO on our European Tour next year( if Corona permits) I hope to hear the answer to this problem!
