Line 6 POD Go Multi FX Processor Pedal
Overview by GAK
The Line 6 POD Go Multi-FX Processor Pedal is an extremely powerful piece of gear. It has an ultra-lightweight build, yet feels sturdy and robust. It’s easy to operate and extremely user-friendly - you can just plug in and play without needing to set anything up beforehand, and combines traditional controls with a large LCD where you can choose from almost 300 professional-grade sounds including virtual amps (based on Marshall, Mesa/Boogie, and Fender Tweed amps), stomps, plenty of cabinets as well as various distortions, fuzzes, compressors, modulation effects, and other professional-grade effects taken from the HX family of processors, known for their superior tone.
If that’s not enough, you can load up to 128 custom and third-party IRs (Impulse Responses), and each preset can save and access four ‘Snapshots’, where you can change the parameters for effects and the amp/preamp. Edit presets using the free POD Go app. This provides a huge amount of iterations to really get the exact sound you’re looking for.
The Line 6 POD Go Multi-FX Processor Pedal has a multi-function expression pedal, eight rugged footswitches with colour LED’s so you can see which effects are active, five push encoders that function as the control knobs for your amp or effects models, and a large 4”x2” LCD display, and you can connect more footswitches and another expression pedal to have even more control over your sound.
The POD Go also works as a 4-in/4-out USB audio interface, so you can record directly into your preferred DAW on your computer, and there’s also a headphone output so you can play at home without disturbing anyone. The stereo ¼” in and out jacks can be used as an FX loop, so you can connect other stompboxes between certain Blocks on the POD Go, or these in/outs can be used for running 4-Cable Method rigs
The Line 6 POD Go Multi-FX Processor Pedal is great for musicians on the road, rehearsals, and anyone needing high-quality sounds in one unit.

Great bit of kit. Does every I need in a nice simple way to foloow and set up!!
I'm reviewing this POD GO presently on my YouTube channel with an inside and out review as others simply don't review too well. I found this unit for the price to be good value and it offers a multitude of features and benefits for the price. Don't assume (as many have) that this POD GO is a 'baby Helix - it clearly is not and never will be. The software is easy to use as is the hardware interface. However there are limitations on this device which do allow it to fall below the Boss GT-1000CORE and the MOOER GE300 and while both those units are approximately 20% more cost they do outshine the POD GO considerably in many areas. Overall a reasonable price for what you get. I rated this POD GO as an 8 out of 10 and recommended if you're tight on budget.
Love it! Easy to use, sounds great.
A small synopsis: A smaller, yet capable Helix-like MFX pedal with great capabilities for practice, recording and live scenarios.
Love it. Fun and easy to use.
