Vox AC30 Fawn & Essex and AC15

Line 6 Pod Go Preset Bundle

This is my take on the Vox AC30 and AC15 design. It's one of my favorite amps for how it interacts with overdrive pedals and so I've built 5 full-featured presets around it, each available in versions for both humbucker and single coil pickups. My focus is first on a fantastic amp and cab simulation tone with a footswitch assignment to increase gain and adjust the amp's EQ. From there I add in an overdrive or compressor to match the amp and fill out the rest of the preset with modulation, delay, reverb, wah, and a solo boost. The result is a collection of presets capable of acting as your entire rig no matter if you prefer stompswitch or snapshot mode. All you need is the Pod Go and any electric guitar and you're set.


What you’re getting:

   - 10 Presets (see the sidebar "Included Presets" for more info)

   - A detailed .pdf with information on each preset

   - Suggestions for setting up your PodGo with these presets

   - Walkthrough of the entire global settings menu

   - Access to all future updates of this bundle for free


For use in Stompswitch mode:

My PodGo presets were initially created for use in stompswitch mode. Explore different combinations of footswitches 1-6  to give you the most control possible.

   - Footswitch 1 is always a modulation (chorus, tremolo, univibe, etc). 

   - Footswitch 2 is a reverb toggle. Reverb is always on and you can press FS2 for a more present sound with increased decay, mix, diffusion, etc. 

   - Footswitch 3 is a delay with the time parameter set to 1/4 note subdivision so it’s easy to adjust live. 

   - Footswitch 4 is a 3.5db solo boost with some slight EQ adjustments to help you cut through the mix. 

   - Footswitch 5 is either a compressor or overdrive pedal that acts as a secondary gain stage and is tuned specifically to work with that amp. 

   - Footswitch 6 is a toggle that will increase the overdrive coming from the amp block, adjust the amp’s EQ, and take care of anything else needed to unity volume.
   - Press down the toe of the expression pedal to engage the wah, which is dialed in to work well with that particular amp & cab model.


For use in Snapshot mode:

I’ve also saved 4 snapshots to each preset. If you’re using snapshot mode, consider setting the up and down switches on the left side of the pedal to act as stompswitches 1 and 4 (you can find this in global settings). This will give you access to the modulation effects and solo boost while you’re using the other switches to control snapshots. I also recommend setting your global settings to discard snapshot edits.

   - Snapshot 1 is the cleanest tone without any of the footswitches engaged.

   - Snapshot 2 increases the amp’s gain block and tweaks EQ settings to fit the new sound.

   - Snapshot 3 engages the overdrive/compressor on foot switch 5 and toggles reverb parameters.

   - Snapshot 4 engages the amp overdrive, the compressor/overdrive pedal, and the delay effect together.


Questions? Just reply to the download email you receive and I’m more than happy to help.


      *Do you use an external speaker cabinet or something like the Line 6 Powercab with built in cab simulation? All of my presets are designed with the cab as the last block in the signal path. Just plug into the Amp Out on the back of the Pod Go and you're good to go.
