Line 6 POD Go Guitar Effects Processor Pedalboard

Line 6 packed 270+ of their best amp and effects models into this 5-pound floor POD. With its easy-to-use interface and color screen, you'll be good to GO!

With its simple plug-and-play interface, ultra-portable lightweight design, and best-in-class tones, the Line 6 POD Go guitar processor gets you on the road to ultimate tone.

POD Go enables a simple and intuitive workflow. Choose, edit, and control sounds using the large color LCD screen, five push encoders, eight rugged footswitches, and cast-aluminum multi-function expression pedal -- and add two external footswitches or a second expression pedal for even more real-time control. All the essential audio connections are at your fingertips, too, including balanced stereo outputs, a duplicate amp out that can be tapped before the Cab/IR, a stereo effects loop, a headphone jack, and even a USB port for accessing the 4-in/4-out audio interface with re-amping.


Join Line 6 as they take you through an overview of the POD Go:


POD Go boasts an arsenal of professional-quality amp, cab, and effect models drawn from the acclaimed HX family of effects processors -- including classic amps like the Blackface, Plexi Lead, and Treadplate -- as well as supporting third-party IR loading. What is more, sophisticated features such as Snapshots enable you to easily access all the tones you'll need to cover every section of every song. With POD Go, you won't just take the stage -- you'll own it.

Paul Hindmarsh demonstrates how POD Go can make home practice sessions even more fun:


Get Going:

Remarkably light, compact, and ultra-portable, POD Go fits easily into a gig bag, making it the read more perfect on-the-road companion for weekend tours, fly dates, and those last-minute rehearsals. Leave the bulky pedalboards at home and know you're covered with a treasure trove of classic amps, cabs, and effects; and a rugged foot controller for wah, volume, and real-time parameter control--everything you'll need to rock the gig like a pro.

Step On It:

With its streamlined plug-and-play Interface, POD Go gets you up and playing in no time. And editing, storing, and creating presets has never been easier thanks to features like Snapshots, which enables you to create up to four variations within a single preset and seamlessly transition between them without experiencing the audio dropouts and disruption of delay and reverb trails that normally occur when switching between DSP-intensive presets.

So I have just got done with a four hour sit down as of posting, and all I can say is; holy crap line 6 this is amazing.

Sound
The sound on the Pod Go is pretty much whatever you need it to be. It uses Amp, and cabinet models that the helix series uses as well as a wide variety of effects. The presets mind you for the most part are not a representation at all of what this unit can do. For the most of your preset tones you are going to do some adjusting to the gain, and the frequencies. I found most factory presetss to be lacking in mids, too much bass, or just a bit too much grit. Again with some minor tweaks it is solved in a few clicks. The biggest plus on sound is that in the preset menu there are two sets of sounds factory, and user. I am happy to say the User blocks are completely empty with 4 blocks within each. The only parameters you can not remove from your sound chain are the cab, amp, volume, and wah however I do not mind this as you can bypass any of these when forging a tone. Keep in mind you will be technically limited to choosing 4 pedals maximum. The Cab models are very well done, and with the huge variety as well as IR loader you can always get the amp sound you have in your head. When this unit is dialed in it is just right. Did I mention it is easy to dial in?

Features
This unit has everything you need for re-amping guitars, recording and playing gigs. It does not have classic midi connections, and read more instead utilizes USB over midi if you are looking for that. It has everything a guitarist could use, but with the stereo outputs I could see keyboard players using it as well. My one gripe is the location as well as style of power switch. It is located in the back panel of the unit along the routing path for I/O's. I am being rather picky on that though however I feel that it should have been on the top left corner of the chassis to allow it to be turned on with the tip of the foot. Other then my own nitpick it has everything. Third Part IR loading, 4 blocks or "snapshots of your parameters, tap tempo/tuner, amp out,balanced/unbalanced l and r outputs, USB over midi for firmware updates as well as editing and daw integration. The expression pedal is a volume pedal with gain control, pan control, and stereo width. The wah pedal is just a wah and so far as I can tell there is no whammy effect on this.The expression also has a short throw, and is firm out of box, but an Allen wrench is provided to adjust it.Lots and lots of features, but these are what I really liked. This is definitely a stripped down helix thru and thru.

Ease of Use
This is where you must be the judge. I spent about ten minutes total to figure out how to use this unit. The manual is well written (PDF only) and there is a cheat sheet provided in the box. While I found it to be intuitive to use I do not think beginners will have such a fair go. You have to have knowledge of routing the right cables, you would need to learn what re-amping is ( explained in manual, but may cause further confusion for the laymen) and you would need to understand what all the parameters and modes do as well. If your looking to learn that stuff however do not let it intimidate you. Again the manual is extremely well written , and does provide tips as well as breaking down what the different functions entail I.E Decay does X, a Yes cable is this. Good for the studious chap, a disaster for the timid beginner.

Quality
This product is very solid. The first thing I noticed is the heft. It is very portable, but I feel Pod Go is definitely the wrong name. It's got a plastic/metal mixed housing that feels solid as a rock; (Definitely do not give your significant other a reason to throw it at you). The expression pedal is adjustable which is nice because it came a bit tight for me. The toggles are extremely firm having the most satisfying click I have ever heard on a board. I can see this lasting me twenty years easy.

Value
The Pod Go is an absolute steal at this point in time. It costs less then a wide array of other multiunits out there, and has more versatility then some of the other units in it's ballpark. I bought this with intentions to use it for five years, but the initial first impression and gut reaction tells me this will be a lifetime investment. If you have the money get the Helix, but if your thrifty buy this it is a brick house.

Manufacturer Support
Have not needed help, but there site is very active with a huge community thanks to the abundance of Helix and Hd series users. I am sure the Pod Go community will explode as well as this unit is basically A baby Helix.

The Wow Factor
I am absolutely blown away. I had a falling out with the line 6 name after purchasing the Spider 4 150 he or whatever, but I am very happy I took a chance on line 6. Yamaha seems to be doing an excellent job as the owner of line 6.
