Hi,
I really like your sound when you're playing man ( really like your playing too though wink.gif )
I'm thinking of buying a pod X3, i know that you have one, can't remember wich version, well i wanted to ask you what do you think about pods, and do you think that i should buy the live version or the normal, knowing that i don't do lot of concerts in these times .. lol, i was thinking of buying the normal one, cause they told me that i can buy a live box and add it to it later if i want

I just want to know what are the pros and the cons of pods smile.gif

thanks marcus

Hi Jad,
First, thank you for the comments smile.gif

Yes, I use the PODxt - and I LOVE IT! biggrin.gif It's very versatile. And imo it works great for recordings, as well as live gigs.
If you don't do live concerts, then I don't think you'll need the Live version. But of course, it depends on what you're playing. Maybe you like to change patch in the middle of a song? That's not so easy with the regular POD all the times I'm afraid...

I haven't tried the PODx3 yet, but from what I understand it's basically the same machine - but a whole lot better. More features etc. The only "bad thing" I've heard about it is the price, so If you got the money I'd definitely recommend you to get a PODx3 rather then a PODxt smile.gif

Hope this helps!


-Marcus

And the second bad thing is no MIDI in/out, which renders it useless for live performance...it sucks!!

What? 'm pretty sure the Pod X3 Live does have MIDI.
Page 3.14 in the handbook (I assume you own one, if not I think you can find one online somewhere)

I think I found a link: http://www.manualnguide.com/download/manua...ser-manual.html

my XT is in the car so i cant check about the XT.

however... the X3 DEFINATLY has midi in AND out... plainly stated by the MIDI ports on the back of the X3 Live.
plus this has no effect on wether it works well live. its a great modeler and i use either the XT or X3 for playing live (depends which one im in the mood for)

Hi ZiZi .. true, the prices in France are sick sometimes ... i have bought my XT Live over ebay and was lucky.I found it for a relative good price and it was located in paris ... so i could test and pick it up directly. It even makes sense to order it from germany. The delivery costs are not that high and i find sometimes more offers from there as in France. I think the Live versions are unbreakable, so no problem to by them used in my opinion.

Just to add to anyones reasurrance, the POD X3 Live is an incredible piece of equipment, Only go for the live version if you want the Expression Pedal (Volume and Wah Pedal) and would like to switch between patches easily with feet, like marcus said, in the middle of a song.

www.thomann.de

good prices on POD's

if you want to record anything more than a guitar, go for the X3.
if you want more contol over your tone, go for the X3.
if you just want a guitar effects pedal that makes your sound brilliant without spending as much for the X3, go for the XT tongue.gif

muntahunta, I see you have both the X3 and the XT. Have you tried sending your signal through both of them simultaneously?

I think I may save up 319 pound for the POD XT Live. But that is about 640 dollars sad.gif

Be careful if you're buying the X3 Live off e-bay. When it first came out, many came with a fault of internal flaking conductive paint. Line 6 released a software solution but it's something to take into account.

Cool. I will check it out. Is this the best Line 6 product out for live performance and recording would you say? Is this above the XT Live?

sorry mate, was talking about the XT Live, I personally find it excellent for both recording and live, I know the XT Live gets a few knocks for "live" work, but I think a lot depends on your set up amp wise, I find it produces the same sounds live as when I record with it so I`m well happy.

I think Muntahunta summed it up well (obviously owning both he has a good opinion) I dont need to record other instruments other than guitar so the X3 is far more than what I need so the majority of its features would be wasted on me.
