I'm waiting until they build a full rig into a wristwatch.
Should only be a couple years time.
That does look reasonably simple to use once you work out what each button does. Not sure how easy it would be to program and tweak settings though.
I've had my Helix floor for a couple of months now - so it's about time for something better/cheaper to be released. That's the way it seems to go with my gear purchases.
No mention of price. I'm guessing in the $400 to $500 range. If that's the case, I don't see it completing well against similar, and less expensive, units from Mooer and Hotone as well as the Strymon Iridium. If it's in the $250 range, it has a better chance.
It does support 3rd party IR loading which is good.
Yes it looks an easy one..
I know, 2 months it's a lot, i get bored of new gear after a week more or less.
I didn't find the price but i also think 500 dollars more or less, the new Mooer ge 250 is about 450 Euro, the Moeer Ge 200 has only up and down switch plus a ctrl, this one seems to me more complete....
Per L6 rep on TGP, price is $449 MAP. Full suite of amps, effects, etc. Looks like less editing capability and some I/O limitations.
That will be a pass for me.
All models from Helix (with very few caveats); $449.99. April.
this will be replacing the hd series thats being phased out so competitive pricing with the hd500. Who wouldnt buy this vs the hd500 right? But a pass for me as well.
Wait, has this got the same sounds as the Helix / HX stomp but with a pedal, more switches, and a bigger LED?
I'm not sure but i think yes, we'll find out in a couple of days, probably some videos from Namm are coming....
POD Go FAQ
What’s the deal with POD Go?
POD Go is Line 6’s all new next generation POD, built to toss into your backpack or carry-on and take anywhere. Oh, and it’s incredibly easy to use—might be the easiest POD since the original POD in 1999.
How much can you run simultaneously?
Each preset in POD Go includes the following blocks:
Input with Noise Gate
Amp or Preamp (all HX models)
Hybrid Cab from Helix—OR—1x Impulse Response (up to 128 user IRs can be loaded into POD Go via the Mac/PC editor)
Preset EQ (any HX type)
Wah (any HX type)
Up to 4 additional effects (any HX type), with the following caveats:
Three HX effects models have been omitted due to their size (Tone Sovereign, Clawthorn Drive, and Cosmos Echo)
All Distortions, Dynamics, and Pitch/Synth blocks are mono only
All other effects are stereo only
FX Loop (mono or stereo)
Output with Volume and Pan
The FX Loop and Preset EQ blocks are automatically assigned to stomp switches, and adding any additional effects automatically assigns them to the remaining stomp switches. Press and hold any two stomp switches to swap them.
If it has nearly all models from HX and Helix products, why call this a POD at all?
The original POD set the standard for ease-of-use in digital guitar and bass products. We wanted POD Go to be stupid easy-to-use, which meant purposefully omitting some power user features one would expect to find in HX or Helix-branded products. And not putting the best modeling possible in a box just because it happens to be less expensive is weak sauce.
What about some of the cooler Helix features like Snapshots, color switch rings, block copy/paste, 3-second footswitch assignment, 3-second controller assignment, multichannel USB audio, and re-amping?
POD Go has all of these.
So can you use this on professional gigs?
Of course. The main outputs on POD Go are balanced/unbalanced and with TRS 1/4” to XLR M cables, can feed the front-of-house mixer—in stereo—without additional DI boxes. Then the 1/4” AMP OUT can be sent to your amp onstage (either echoing the Main Outs or tapped off before the Cab/IR block). The routable stereo send/return jacks can be used for 4-Cable Method.
Is there a Mac/PC editor?
Yes. POD Go Edit should be available by the time POD Go ships.
Does POD Go have an audio interface?
Yes. POD Go has a 24-bit/96kHz, 4-in/4-out audio/MIDI interface with re-amping built in.
Why didn’t you put VDI, L6 LINK, AES/EBU, S/PDIF, MIDI, parallel paths, dual DSPs, cap-sense switches, scribble strips, blah blah blah?!
Because POD shouldn’t cost what Helix costs. And it needed to be stupid easy to use. And it IS stupid easy to use, partly because some of that stuff’s not here.
Dimensions/weight? Is it smaller than POD HD500X?
14.1”w x 9.1”d x 3.5”h; 5.2lbs
It’s way smaller and lighter than POD HD500X. Fits inside pretty much any backpack or carry-on.
What’s the price?
POD Go sells for $449.99 US street.
When is POD Go shipping?
That is great, thanks a lot man....
Rush in if you want, but I'm waiting for the cochlear implant version. Nothing to carry at all.
Pardon the ignorance but what's the difference between HX and Helix in terms of modeling... are they the same?
