A MATCHLESS DC30 POD Go PATCH PERFECTLY SUITED FOR MODERN WORSHIP MUSIC

IMPORTANT NOTES

1. UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE: Please upgrade the firmware on your POD Go and POD Go Edit software from Line 6 to the latest before installing this patch. Even if your POD Go is up to date, the app needs to be updated as well. If you get an error importing a patch, the problem is most likely outdated firmware on your POD Go or POD Go Edit.

2. IR CAB INCLUDED: This download includes a premium IR from Tone Junkie. We matched this specific IR to this amp, but feel free to experiment with other IR’s for different tonal options. We’ve also included a stock cab version of the patch, but we urge to try the IR – it really does sound better – and it’s included for free :).

Here is the specific IR included, and it’s location in our POD Go:

  • TJ 13 GOLD R121+7B . In our POD Go, it’s in IR slot 13

To purchase more IR packs, visit the Tone Junkie store here.

3. INCLUDED PATCHES: This download includes two patches:

  • MATCHLESS WT IR . patch is the main patch with IR cab
  • MATCHLESS WT. This is the main patch with a stock cab (we highly recommend the IR version with the included IR from Tone Junkie)
  • MATCHLESS WT FX 1. This patch includes additional effects blocks from our full Helix patch (see signal chain section below to know what is included)
  • MATCHLESS WT FX 2. This patch includes more additional effects blocks from our full Helix patch (see signal chain section below to know what is included)

*We include the additional ‘FX’ patches so you can mix and match effects blocks to best suite your needs. These additional blocks include more drive, delay, reverb, and modulation options.

HOW TO IMPORT THIS PATCH AND IR

  1. Connect your POD Go to your computer using a USB Cable
  2. Download and instal the ‘POD Go Edit’ app from Line 6
  3. In the ‘POD Go Edit’ app, drag and drop the patch into a slot in the ‘PRESETS’ column
  4. To import an IR, switch to the ‘IMPULSES’ column (next to the PRESETS column), and drag & drop the IR into the appropriate slot (see note above).
  5. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have the IR loaded into the ‘IMPULSES’ column, the patch will not sound correct, even if you have the IR block on – you must drag and drop the IR into the IMPULSES column.

USAGE

This patch is meant to be used in either stompbox or snapshot mode. We recommend setting up your POD Go to use switches A, B, C, and D as stomps, and the left up/down switches to cycle through snapshots.

We have included additional ‘FX” patches so you can copy and paste the various effects blocks used in the full Helix version of this patch to suite your needs with the POD Go.

AMP GAIN – FOOT SWITCH B:

Foot switch B adjusts both the Drive and the Bass parameters on the amp block. This gives you a true amp overdrive tone without the use of dirt pedals. If the base patch is too dirty for your preference, adjust the ‘Min Drive’ and ‘Max Drive’ settings on this button to suite your needs. The ‘Min Drive’ settings is when the button is off, and the ‘Max Drive’ setting is when the button is on.

DELAY – FOOT SWITCH C:

Foot switch C adjusts the following parameters in the Transistor Tape Delay block: Note Sync, Feedback, and Mix. In the ‘off (min)’ position, you get a subtle 1/4 note delay. In the ‘on (max)’ position, you get a bigger dotted 8th note delay.

REVERB – FOOT SWITCH D:

Foot switch D adjusts the following parameters in the Glitz Reverb block: Decay and Mix. In the off/min position you get a subtle reverb, and in the on position you get a big ambient reverb.

SNAPSHOTS:

There are four snapshots included in this patch to get different sounds. They are:

  • Snapshot 1: CLEAN. This is the base clean tone with delay.
  • Snapshot 2: DRIVE. Light overdrive.
  • Snapshot 3: P&W LEAD: Big drive with delay and lots of verb. This is a typical P&W style drive.
  • Snapshot 4: CLEAN AMBI – Clean tone with big reverb and delay.

MAKING ADJUSTMENTS FOR YOUR SETUP

SETTING THE PATCH UP FOR YOUR GUITAR

All guitars are different, so you may want to make changes to suite your playing style and guitar. We set this up with a variety of guitars, including both single coils and humbuckers (primarily a Telecaster style guitar). If you have higher output humbuckers, you might want to turn down the gain on the amp(s), or, alternatively, turn down the output on the first compressor – this will hit the amp(s) with less signal.

We recommend making a copy of the patch and changing the copy just in case you want to revert back to the original.

RECOMMENDED SETTINGS FOR SINGLE COILS:

The version of this patch you initially download is voiced more toward single coils. We built it primarily using a Telecaster style guitar. If you have a humbucker equipped guitar with low-output humbuckers, it should be perfect for your uses too.

Feel free to adjust the amp EQ and the settings of the Simple EQ block if you’d like to make the patch a bit brighter or darker.

RECOMMENDED SETTINGS FOR HUMBUCKERS:

If your guitar has traditional output Humbuckers, try the following changes (we recommend making a copy of the original patch)…

AMP SETTINGS:

  • Ch 1 DRIVE: Change the ‘Min’ value to 2.4 and the ‘Max’ value to 6.3
  • Bass: Change ‘Min’ value to 5.9 and the ‘Max’ value to 2.3
  • Cut: Change to 2.9
  • Treble: Change to 6.9
  • Presence: Change to 6.8

Cali Q Graphic block settings:

  • 240 Hz Slider: change to +1.7
  • 2200 Hz Slider: change to +15
