Re: POD XT Live, Any Good?

I like my PodXT for working in the studio and such.
If it's anything like mine, it should be great for playing into a computer and whatever, i'm not sure how it'd cope in live surroundings. Mabye put a valve poweramp through or something.

Love mine. Perfect for whatever your set up requires. Extremely versatile and great on line support. And the price is extremely good for what all it does. Joshua

Re: POD XT Live, Any Good?

I'll throw a couple of questions in for the folks that own one here...

Does it have the ability to:

a) Switch between distortion to clean with expression pedal (a la "Tender Surrender")?

or

b) Record a riff and then loop it like the intro to "I Know You're Here"?

I'm really interested in one of these too...

Thanks!

Re: POD XT Live, Any Good?

It was my understanding that the change in tone in Tender Surrender was all done on the volume pot.

Don't know about looping.

A good trick with digital gear is to run the out put through a valve compressor to give it some warmth. You can still do this live, straight into a pa, or into a power amp.

I can't remember where or who it was, but somebody told me the sound change on Tender Surrender was done on a rack.

Maybe this'll be a question for Mr. Weiner

You're thikin' like POD, or GNX, or GT Features.... But it depends on what you want... and i want TONE = Pod Xt (live).

And for some other reasons you can't compare a multiefects with racks and $1,000's dlls. Fx...

Right ?

Re: POD XT Live, Any Good?

Quick note for ya. The POd XTLive does have the Guitar port software. And wth that you can do some basic recording and looping. And mine has a second pedal (An Ernie Ball volume working as an expression pedal) that allows you to change parameters such as gain and drive by editing the "tweak" feature. And while this pod is sorely missing a Whammy feature (hint to LIne6, if you are reading this) the tweak feature is very useful. With the right programming you can even use the built in pedal as a tweak. So yes you can change drive with the pedal and yes there is some basic looping features available via a computer, although i have not delved in deep enough to see if it can be done without the computer. And bear in mind that you can expand the pod's amp modeling base by adding Model Packs so the 32 they advertise can be expanded. Hope this helps. Joshua

Re: POD XT Live, Any Good?

i have a CH-1 a DD-3 and a DS-1. I have always considered buying the Pod XT. Do you guys think its a good idea if i sell the pedals and buy a bad horsie wah and a pod XT?
