Numbat Posted March 21, 2022 Share Posted March 21, 2022 Hello all, I've been gradually selling off most of my pedals in order to purchase a multi FX, but I'm unsure whether a HX Effects or POD Go are the right choice in my price range. I play in a busy covers band, covering many genres from Chuck Berry to Rage Against The Machine (with a bit of Britney Spears along the way!). I have a Roland JC40 amp, which I like very much, so I was initially looking at the HX Effects to run via the 4 cable method. But there will be occasions when I need to run direct, so I'm assuming I'd put some kind of preamp in the effects loop. This led me to consider the POD Go as an all-in-one solution, without the need for add ons. I can run the POD Go into my JC40 via the 4 cable method with the amp and sim disabled in the signal chain. Then for those times when I'm direct, I can activate my amp and cab sim of choice. Does this make the POD Go the more versatile and therefore the most logical choice for me? Am I missing out on much by not going with the HX Effects? Your expertise is most welcome! (Also posted in the Helix chat) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
