Hi just got the POD Go, is there a setting anywhere to de-couple the volume knob from the guitar outputs, the same (i think) as the HX stomp - it drives me nuts to adjust it, i d rather have the output fixed -

No there’s no way to decouple the main volume knob from the outputs. That’s its job. Otherwise, what would the volume knob control? And the main volume is at a fixed level; the issue is the different volume levels among your presets.

 

You shouldn’t have to change the main volume level often. The intent is to balance the output level of all your presets so that you don’t have to adjust the main volume knob when you change presets. You want to be able to set the main volume level at the beginning of each session, based on the room you’re in, and then not touch it again. Ideally you want the main volume knob at a fairly high level to deliver a strong clear signal to the amp/speakers/mixer.
 

There are many threads here that discuss options for levelling the volume of presets. Search and read. The preferred options are to use the amp’s Channel Volume setting (not Drive or Master Volume,  both of which affect tone), and/or the Output blocks’s Level setting. Start by setting the main volume knob at about 80%. Begin with your clean patches and adjust the above settings in each patch until there is no noticeable difference in overall volume level when you switch among them. Then move on to your crunch patches, then your hi-gain stuff.

 

It will take some time and attention but will be worth it.

if you are using mono playback, you can use the AMP OUT....That's a fixed output unaffected by the volume....If you need stereo and are not using the FX Loop, you can stick the Loop block at the end of the chain and just use a send....That is also a fixed output unaffected by the volume knob...good luck.
