RobBaartwijk Posted February 7 Share Posted February 7 Hi all, I bought a Line 6 Pod Go about a month ago and coming from the ancient Boss GT-8 it is brilliant. There are three things that I think can be improved though so here they are. 1. The quality of the presets is terrible. I have been programming user patches and they sound absolutely great. When I now compare them to the standard presets I get the feeling that I am some kind of Super Programmer... 2. Line 6 gives the impression that there are 128 presets and 128 user patches. This may be technically correct, but a preset cannot be altered. This goes for every preset I have ever come across, and I have owned dozens of synths over the years. What you supply are default patches, not preset patches. What is such a shame about this is that the manual only mentions the fact that the presets can also be updated/altered/improved, just like the user patches, in one line in the manual. I would think that having 256 patches available would make the Pod Go even more desirable, so why not mention this more clearly in the docs? 3. Small thingy but very useful; If you address issue #3; there should be a way to change the words 'Factory' and 'User' into something else. For instance; I would like to be able to have banks under 'Live' and 'Studio' instead of 'Factory' and 'User'. That would be extremely useful because I can then clearly separate my patches that use the amp/cabs for studio use and the other ones for playing live. I can even make duplicates for both situations and store them at the same place in the two banks. 4. You really really REALLY should include a couple of IRs. The moment I started playing with IR's my Pod-life got immeasurably better. I know that there is a whole market out there for IRs and I am not saying that you should supply hundreds of them, but I think that if you include say a dozen of them, people will immediately hear the difference and start using more and more of them. Having said all this ; as a synth-/guitar-player, as well as a software developer who knows about the power of the processor, I was and am very impressed with what you have been able to achieve. And I am now going back again to programming the sh*t out of this machine! ;) What do you all think? Cheers, Rob. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
