I'm now a proud owner of a Line 6 Pod X3 Live!!! I've messed around a wee bit with it (I've only had it for about 15 minutes now), and it seems to be pretty great. I love it! laugh.gif

Does anyone have any awesome presets that they'd like to share? biggrin.gif

And does anyone have any specific advice they'd like to give on playing live, or what kind of settings I should use for a great tone?


I also got a pack of the Jim Dunlop Nylon Jazz III Picks... any other suggestions on pick types?

EDIT: Added the pick section.

Oooh. I want one. Have you tried the xt live? If so hows it different/better? Is it worth the extra money? I kind of know some of the specific differences, but I'd like to hear from someone who's tried it smile.gif

Sadly, I never got to try the XT Live. I was going to get the XT Live, but then I saw the X3 and I began to drool. biggrin.gif

I don't know if the patches are compatible between XT and X3?
If so I really love Marcus tone. It's available in the forum somewhere. I also found it uploaded on line6.
I've made a "tone" myself that I really like for slide and bluesier stuff.

Regarding picks I prefer Brain picks.

They are compatable. I downloaded Marcus Lavendell's *.l6t file and used Line 6 Monkey to put it on my X3 Live with the USB cord. Line 6 Monkey is available at http://www.line6.com/monkey.

It works great, I love playing with his tone and the wah--sounds fantastic!

I'll tell you all whenever I get some great tones set up. I've learned the settings, so now setting delay, etc. is fantastic. I will try and get some pictures posted sometime.

PS: Thanks for that, Marcus; it's one of my favorite tones so far.

for live playing i suggest using dual tone with 2 amps and having one on each side of the stage.
this way if you have no monitors and not mic'ed up the entire band can hear you and it sounds awesome offstage.

Hey, thanks! That sounds like a great idea. The dual-amp setup I've used at my dad's already, and it's pretty nice. It's a little awkward though when one amp is 250 watts and the other is 5. laugh.gif

Medium Fender 351 Premium Celluloid picks all the way, for me! tongue.gif

For the POD, I would recommend dedicating a lot of time at the beginning to messing around with it until you find something that you really like. These multi-effects pedals can be very overwhelming at first, but you get the hang of it pretty fast. But, I've never used a POD, only a GT-8... should be fairly similar, though! biggrin.gif

Go to Line 6's Website and get Line 6 Monkey for your Pod. This will allow you to get the drivers and such that you need for the Pod. In order to record, you need some sort of recording software. I use Adobe Audition, but it is a bit expensive; there are plenty of free ones out there. In fact, check out this topic.

If you need anymore help, just ask.
