Ive been looking at these Atomic amps along with the podxt, and the reviews its getting sounds awesome. The only thing is i live in the uk and they seem like the atomic amp is really hard to get hold off. Has anybody actually gone one?

I think thats the UK number

Okay first things first.

The effects loop. If you use your amps distortion and you add for example your own delay pedal, you would want your delay to be added onto the distorted sound and not the clean sound. So basicly its added "effects" after any amplifier effects has been applied.

In the case of the POD / PODXT etc. You would use it to bypass your amplifiers "Bass/Mid/Trebble" EQ. Even tho their set to 12' they still affect your sound.

The atomic amplifiers does no include the Bass/Mid/Treble or any form of a PRE amp. Its only an all tube power amplifier and this has a volume knob for that purpose.

The PODXT Live and PODx3 has amps like a Mesa boogie triple and dual rectifier, bomber and other super high gain amp sounds. Bullet uses a Peavy 6505 so these models should get you pretty close.

The PODXT has this whammy effect : Digitech Whammy Pitch Effect

And if you do get a POD. Rather try and go for the new Pod X3 it has more amps and effects.


Thanks, i get it now. I really want a POD X3 live, an atomic amp and an ibanez presteige right now, but i have enough cash for a POD XT live or a POD X3 which are the same price.

What would you guys reccomend for gigs and overall convenience of playing and recording at home (POD XTlive or a POD X3)?

I really want that whammy effect but i dont think the POD x3 has it since you require to use a pedal manually.

oh yea, infact a few of the local bands who have seen us play more than once usually ask to use my effects when their playing with us. which is a fairly big compliment considering some of the setups they have.

me too but i think the £2000 just for the head is a little pricey for me tongue.gif

just wondering but since there seems to be alot of questions regarding the POD series, does anyone think a simple guide would be useful?
the manual covers most of the things possible but for those who dont have the manual (or are too lazy to read it) i think it could be useful.

if anyone agrees gimme a shout and ill get a start on one then update it for the POD X3 aswell once it arrives.

I think that would be extremely useful - maybe you could write it as an extended in-depth review?

+1 - The pods strength is its amp modeling. If you have a tube amp you wouldn't even want to use that. Take that away and you have a reasonable but expensive multi-effects unit.

If you want to use the pod as it was intended, you need a clean amp like a PA or Keyboard amp. You could also probably use a very clean guitar amp but that wouldn't work quite so well. Also, I wouldn't put a pod in the effects loop, it is designed to be used in front of the amp.


Couldn't you also use it through your computer? Along with any amp modeling gear?

i use my XT through a proffessional sound card i have which gives me jack inputs on my computer. but yes you can, there is an addon you can buy from line6 that gives you this kind of option but it does cost a pretty penny.

plugging your POD via USB is also good but the X3 will have a much better USB capability due to using the USB 2.0 technology whereas the XT uses an older version (cant remember which one from the top of my head)

I'm not sure I get the concept ... I'm reading a commersial about the PodXT LIVE and it says: PODXT Live can be used as the ultimate multi-effects pedal in front of any guitar amp, or as a complete direct PA solution, or as the world-standard guitar recording workhorse in the studio.
So can it actually be used as a multi-effect pedal in front of any amp or not? blink.gif
And if "yes", dose that then mean that it could replace say a compact pedal like the Boss MT-2 ?? Little confused here. wacko.gif
Say you turn off the amp-modelling in the PodXT LIVE and just use the rest of the "bells and whistlels" ?

yes you can turn off the amp modelling and use the rest of the stuff.

and the POD XT Live can be used infront of any amp, it has the following settings for plugging into different amps...

Studio Direct (used for plugging into a PC, PA or straight into a studio for recording)
Combo Front (used for plugging into the main input of an amp, although this may need a little tweaking)
Combo Poweramp (used when plugging into the effects return of an amp)
Stack Front (used when plugging into the front of a stack or 2 combo amps)
Stack Poweramp (used when plugging into effects return of a stack or 2 combo amps)

hope this helps.

the only drawback is that putting it in the main input of the amp is risky as the sound gets changed by your amp EQ... sometimes this sounds good though and the only way to get a good sound is trial and error.

Ive had my XT for almost a year now and i havn't looked back. its awesome for versatility and it has the ability for you to pogram great tones and effects. but if your looking for that perfect tone or the amazing warm sound of a clean valve amp i'd look somewhere else.

But don't you get that problem too if you connect say a pedal like the Boss MT-2 in a normal setup?
