You explained this better than ANY Line 6 person. Thank youi. FINALLY a great explanation.
Pod Go users: This video will catapult your tone crafting abilities. Fast. I saw this video the day I bought my PG, 6 months ago, but didn't really listen. By explaining the effect of the changes to certain parameters, Ritchie is giving you the keys to the kingdom. There is a ridiculous amount of information in this video...if you listen. I've spent 6 months, working around my PG, not with it. After listening today to what Ritchie's saying, I'm creating beautiful tones that take my playing to new levels. Thank you Ritchie. You're a fantastic teacher and a monster player. I subscribed.
This is by far the best video I’ve seen as far as showing how to create patches on this unit. I am by no means what you would call tech savvy and although I’ve been looking into these types of units in a attempt to downsize and simplify my rig, I’ve been a little hesitant because I feared that it would be too complicated to navigate. You make it look easy and I think I am ready to pull the trigger. Thank you!! 👍
THIS IS THE GUY THAT EXPLAINS THE POD GO WITH NO NONSENSE 👍
Just got one and this is priceless for an old school noob like me 😄...well done sir!
I agree. I was really hoping I wouldn't have to stay on the pc or laptop to edit basic patches. Now I know I don't.
I do understand editing via the app link offers more control but I really just don't need that kind of complexity in my life right now. 👍
Richie Castellano: the patron saint of Parametric EQ, helping make modeler tones better in a real world context.
Got my pod go a couple days ago and I’ve sunk about 4 hours into it. I can’t wait to try things using your advice! And even showing the basics of navigating the panels was super helpful! Thank you!
This is the best digital fx tuition video I have seen in years. Thank you Richie!
Good quick lesson in using the Pod Go. Also good tones. Best I’ve heard from this unit. Real life sounds 😃👍
Having just purchased the Pod Go, I have to thank you Richie for accelerating my learning curve on it. My first foray into digital modeling of this type is made much easier with your support!
Had my Pod Go for two months but your amazing demo has taken me to another level in building presets. Thanks Richie
I bought the POD GO yesterday & this video is VERY informative for all of us starting with preset building. Thank you for all the tips and tricks. ❤
Fantastic video! I've been messing around with line 6 modelers for most of my career and this one had the steepest learning curve so far but you made it clear and concise. Thank you, sir!
Finally, someone reviewing the product. Good job
Exactly what I was looking for! Awesome quick start guide to using the unit and tone sculpting! That's the first time I've heard tones described as "tubby, hairy, and having a cold" lolol
This is the best tutorial I've seen; I was getting a little frustrated with the Pod Go, the millions of possibilities makes it overwhelming, and I need more time to practice my lousy guitar playing.
I just bought a POD GO a week ago. Very user friendly and I've created a couple of presets I really dig. But this video really opened way more doors for me! Fantastic job! This is the best POD GO video I've watched yet. Subscribed!
I’ve ordered one of these units in the last few days and been watching a few videos to get clued up on it. Your video is by far the best I’ve seen and that’s no discredit to the others I’ve watched. You have demonstrated how to preform the more complex actions on the unit in a really simple way! I had no idea that the PG was capable of some of the stuff you have demonstrated.
Definitely will be watching your video again when setting up my patches!
Slightly mind blown by how much you can do on this!
Great work man!
I really dig that little riff you play through creating presets! Thanks for the vid!
This is just such a fantastic piece of info and knowledge. Thank you so much for doing this and sharing the patches.
Dude. This is a sick and SUPER helpful vid. You did more in 27 minutes than I have in a few weeks ... Thanks SO much
Hey, could you explain how to get the Custom Tones to the Pod Go? Download and then ... ???
One of the best videos on the Pod GO I've ever watched. I love my Pod GO and you've loaded a ton of tricks and tips in this video. Thanks!
What a great video for the Pod Go! After having this for a month or so, I was getting a little exasperated with option paralysis. I really like the approach you have payed out here. I’ll be using this video as the format for my next set of patches or presets. Thanks tremendously!
Really like the way you put these videos together. And REALLY like your playing. Have got one of these on order and looking forward to receiving it!
Thank you for demystifying this. Your 9 uses for the Pod Go video was likewise extraordinarily helpful. Now all I need is more cowbell. 🤣
Fantastic time saver that allowed me to get going quickly! Loved your tones and pragmatic approach to building them.
I’ve watched so many videos on this and this have been the most well explained one. The tones are great and usable. Also some features I hadn’t seen at all in other videos. Thanks!
Really easy to follow without being simplistic; brilliant, well done and thanks.
Большое спасибо за видео!
Excellent video, Richie! Great playing, too. You rock. I sold my Helix LT because I want something simpler, and POD GO seems like what I need. Thanks!
Great video great tone!! Love the playing.
Fantastic! Watched this last night now have a much better grip of editing with the panel. Worked out how to get a volume pan effect working at a single point in one of my presets.. awesome!
Thanks. I was curious about the Pod Go. This realistic case-study really illustrates what it can do.
nice, that's exactly how I built my presets! I just bought the Pod Go after selling the Helix LT, then realising that I needed it after all a couple of months later... I actually think i will like the Go more than the LT, it does seem to be a little easier to use and I never used all the advanced routing anyway
Pure gold tones!
Got my go pod 2 days ago and followed along with your video . Best video I’ve watched, loved how you added a little trick for each setting.
Awesome tutorial, just picked up the pod go and you just made me feel even better about my purchase!! Thank you
absolutely great run through of making presets. I love the creative tips and tricks to achieve more functions without adding more blocks. I have an LT and was thinking of purchasing a podgo for a second rig but worried about the lack of DSP. you sir have hacked the system and made more with less ;-) #genius
Dude you're bad ass! Just purchased a GO unit and this has become my reference. Thank you!
Great stuff man, clearly explained and really helpful. Thank you.
Hey Richie, thanks for offering these for free. Much appreciated by all.
Thanks for this awesome vid. I just got a POD GO this evening and just watching this I dialled in my four sounds for my live gigs. Richie you Rock..!!
THANK YOU ... THAT WAS A HUGE HELP. SO MUCH LIKE THE HELIX ... YET VERY DIFFERENT.
I just bought a Podgo and found your channel. Thank you so much for making sense of everything! I just subbed!
HEY! I like to run my Looper before my POD when I’m making tones, so it loops while I eq and adjust other parameters. Especially nice when you’re about to play through live speakers.
Great video! Thanks so much!
Thanks Richie, these are the best starting templates! Please do some more for us poor PodGo users ;)
That rig is amazing and of course as well as you guitar playing!
Thanks! Very helpful for those of us who are not crazy about the factory presets.
Wow....such talent and smarts on display here. You could have decided to become a doctor or a lawyer (who knows maybe you are) but instead you chose to be a musician and teacher to others who play guitar. Good thing for me because I just got my PodGo and need this desperately.....thank you for your career choice....:You are a fabulous teacher. Cheers!
This is great Richie. My Pod Go will be here Thursday or Friday. Can't wait to mess around. Is this unit pretty much what you use for all of the Band Geeks videos? Or do you occasionally use other units or amps? Your tone is always spot on. I have a Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 36 I use for gigging. The Pod Go is going to be for recording. Thanks...
At last someone who does know how to make it sound good !!
So helpful, and I love the tones.
Thanks a million for this! Much more helpful than the 2 page cheat sheet that came in the box :)
Nice demo. A little fast, but I think if I rewatch it a few more times I can glean some useful information.
Thanks Ritchie they sound great and they are all I need.Modified some of course.
First time viewer of your channel and copied the 4 presets with the exception of the ir, they sound great, i was really struggling to get a full clean tone for when rhythm playing
Awesome! I’m glad you did an accompanying video. I grabbed these four presets the other day on CustomTone and was elated at how plug and play they were. Barely any tweaking needed to match my guitar. You rock, Richie!
@yacht_rocker Any chance you could share your 4 snapshots using the stock cabs?
Michael Costello No, I actually changed those back to stock cabs just for simplicity now. I’m hesitant to go back down the IR rabbit hole as it really sidetracked me back in when I used to have an AxeFX and Helix a few years ago.
Did you also buy the IR he suggested for the presets to sound right?
Just found 2 of your pod go vids. Really excellent as overviews of key features and parts of how to do things. Thx
love your channel i really enjoy the videos its great. i haven't seen [starship-we built this city] also [starship-noting gona stop us now]. i would like to hear you guys have a go at these covers.
Hi Richie, thanks for the tips. 2 questions. With user presets, it means that if I overwrite the factory presets I can have in total 64 banks with 4 presets each personalised for my own songs? Second question is, according to the set list of my gigs, can I organise my banks list just to have all the presets in sequence in order to get from one song to the next one? If yes, how can I do that? Thank you!
Nice. I'm gonna trade my HX stomp for one of this. Much more simpler and gig ready. Just what I need ! . ( Although I love the portability of the stomp) . Thanks for the tutorials
Best video yet , thanks I liked and sub'd. I'm really curious to see what else you have tutorials for ... I currently struggling with plug-ins IR's etc.... and Ableton 10 for my guitars
Thanks, this is the info I was looking for. Much appreciated.
I bought the Pod go I sat down with it for a half an hour it's a helix for 1/4 of the price thank you for your video my good man this thing sounds absolutely amazing
those are killer presets!
Richie, thanks for this video. I just got a Pod Go wireless and this is extremely helpful. I have a question that maybe you or anyone else watching might be able to help me with. I need some help setting up the volume pedal so it doesn't just go from 0 to 100. I'm sure there's a way to configure it so I can do volume swells. I've tried to mess with it but can't seem to make it so the swell is gradual. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi Ritchie. Had my Pod Go for two days now, I'm not tech wizard and only just learning guitar at 58 years old. Yours is the first video that has made sense to me. Many Thanks.
Never too late ,I started at 55 and now 62 , I’m rocking and recording
Awesome and thank you for sharing the tips to get the most out of pod go.
This is so useful. You saved my headache. Thank you.
I have some questions: What’s the difference of using a cabinet in the list versus an IR?
Best Podgo demo I have seen brilliant
Just got my pod go thank you for this explanation, with out this I would not have been able to set it up!!!
Very cool video!
Can you do one or two presets with the Pod Go, but in 4CM?
Cheers from Portugal 🍺🤘🇵🇹
This is a little long but if you're on the fence about modeling this could be a worthwhile read.
I bought one of these for late night practicing through headphones and the occasional fly gig/jam. It sounds so good to me that it has become my main rig, but there’s an important catch- I bypass the cab sims and put it straight into the fx loop return of my Bad Cat Cub 15R because, let’s face it, FRFR systems cannot recreate the “amp in a room” sound.
Although I’m not about to part with my Eventide H9, the effects on board are good to excellent. I’m still pretty floored by how uniformly great this setup sounds. Just so you don’t think I’m some easily impressed noob, I’ve been playing since the early 80’s and own or have owned great amps by the likes of Mesa (at least 6), Carr, Friedman, Budda, Fender CS, Orange, Rivera, Revv, and so-on. I’ve had my favorites from these brands and I can really say that the Pod Go into my Bad Cat’s fx loop return puts as big a smile on my face as any of the above amps.
Maybe I just got lucky and the Bad Cat just happens to “like” the Pod Go and it’s a great combination just by chance? Eventually I’ll pull out other amps to find out. I also think it’s important to mention that in my experience it doesn’t sound good into the front of an amp which makes sense given that you’re putting a modeled preamp into a real preamp in this scenario.
Modeling has really come of age IMHO. If you’re tired of lugging a big rig around and you’re intrigued by modeling but don’t like the FRFR experience you should consider this kind of setup. You may be very surprised. Oh yeah, the day after I bought this I got an email from Fractal as I'd been on their waiting list for the past 6 months for a FM3. With all the confidence that I was making the right choice and zero regret to date, I told them I was going to pass. YMMV
Hi, thanks for a very instructive video. I followed you step by step, and learning by doing was a success! The best video if you want to learn the basics by using the unit.
Thanks for creating this video. One quick question, what is the shortcut to deleting the rest of the preset name?
Cool presets! Thank you a lot!
Those sound awesome and you taught me a ton!
The firts one who actually EXPLAINED how to make presets THANK YOU
That's what I'm talkin about - excellent job.
Come here -
Get what the title said -
This is what YT guitar geek stuff is about. Thanks
The Helix Master at work. As a Padawan I watched many of your Helix floor videos. I am not surprised. :)
Consise and well explained. Nice. 👍
These are great presets, but given the Pod Go has no spillover between presets, the sound gap between them makes them unusable in a band setting. I believe the Helix has a spillover option to correct this...Pod Go needs this update!!!
Meanwhile snapshots are our only option.
Loved this video. I have a question, what is the best use of the effects use dedicated slot? I just slide mine to the beginning usually and unassign a bypass to it... no idea what to do with it.
can you assign to the expression pedal both delay and gain values for example?
Sir....thank you for an informative demo that sold me on this unit.
That I you very much I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this lesson. I love it and feel like I know the Pod Go much better. Thanks again
This is a 27 minute master class on the Pod Go; just started with it at the beginning of the year, but I learned more on this video that I had to date. Bought for guitar, but do you know anyone using it for violin? Or, do you have to use an amp block? Can you just set up a preamp? My pickups are pretty low level (standard piezo pickups).
Great job Richie. I always learn something from your videos. I love my Pod Go. But, I am not a big fan of the IR’s. Never found one yet worth buying that I have liked better than the stock cabs. And I usually like the already paired factory cab. But if not, It usually takes just a little searching. That is one piece of advice I would offer to anyone new - don’t be afraid to turn the knobs and experiment a little.
If you like the stock cabs that’s great! I just wanted to show people how to load IRs.
Best pod go video on Clip-Share, HANDS DOWN!
It would be nice if Line 6 created a smartphone app to make it a little easier to configure.... especially when it comes to inputting the text for the presets and what not.
Just got one...this helped SO much. Thanks.
Hi Richie 1.would you recommend Pod Go for ambient music ? 2. Can I use my stereo reverb hall of fame 2 pedal ( are the inbuilt reverbs comparable ? ) with it in anywhere in block chain and have an over all stereo signal? Thanks
Best video out here for the line 6 pod Go, Thank you.
Thank you Rich, simple, clear effective and easy.... Have fun
Hy. Thank you very much for this video. I recently bought a pod go. I'm a very beginner on électric guitar and don't have the ear to know what effect to chose and to set for having "the" sound of a particular song I want to cover.
Are there web sites where you can find some podgo sets for classic songs , that I could easily reproduce on my podgo ?
I agree with Bob1gee one of the best tutes on creating presets. I shall subscribe. Thx Ritchie Cheers
I was going to return my pod go because I felt overwhelmed by it, but then i found this video now I may hold onto it lol
Phenomenal tutorial - Thanks. The pod go seems to do alot. Could you do a video on the Helix Floor vs Pod Go. Probably be easier to show what the floor can do that the Pid Go cant
As far as I can tell the Helix Floor is effectively 2 Pod Gos. I think I only need one.
I use the Helix, but looking to size down.
You can go with the Helix if you want a multi effects modeler and a
Brilliant video!! Thank you! One question: do you use only the speakers/monitors, or do you have a combo, or head?
Richie you are the best
Damned, followed all your steps and now see, I could have easily downloaded them :-) Ok, this way I learned more!!
