POD GO switch and FX in live situation (actually HD500X-User)


Recommended Posts

Hi there and greetings from germany!


This is Rüdi, I play in a hobby-rock-coverband actually, and I like the possibilities and flexibility of my POD HD500X.

But I think about buying a new unit (G.A.S.).


The Helix is to much (I could, but do not want to spend >€850,- for a used LT or 1000,- more),

I´m deciding between POD GO and Mooer GE300

Does the POD GO have Setlists as the 500X?

As some years ago I had 2 or Bands some time ago, it was nice to have one Setlist for the pop-rock-coverband, one for the KoRn-Coverband and maybe one for the Punkrockcoverband.

Or are there 100+ Presets 1 ABCD 2ABCD 3ABCD in a row?


I do not want to have 100 presets in Use, so I like to keep it as simple as possible.

At the 500X I got used to have 4 sounds A Clean B Crunch C Rhthm D Lead and optional effects 1 Screamer 2 Delay  3 Modulation 4 Boost at each sound at each ABCD-bank.

My Issues is, will I get used to have ABCD, and If i want to add a chorus, I will have to press one additional switch for FX-mode.


When I really think about it I only use 5-6 banks ABCD and at some songs an additional flanger or chorus or leslie or e specific sound at B…

So would get used to the POD?  ABCD and if in a song I need an flanger, I have to press Mode change and then the flanger.

Other option: I´m in Preset C, and switch to Snapshots an choose snapshot 2 (with flanger for  example)


And, question: If I then want to go back from Preset C snapshot 2 to clean = Preset A, and then go back to Preset C – which snapshot ist he active?


I´ll be thankful for every 2 cents which will push me to buy one.
