Mics are usually very low output compared to other devices, and you usually need a Mic amplifier for them - what are you plugging into? If its a regular soundcard you won't get good results I am afraid.

Just thought I'd check, since the XT doesn't have a Voice preamp - no need to be smart about it blink.gif

No problem - I always think the wink.gif smiley looks like a wiseass biggrin.gif

Your Mic is dynamic so, no, it doesn't need phantom power, I don't have an X3 so can't help any further I am afraid.

Are there any drivers for win2000 for the X3?

Installing the drivers on my comp with X3 was a challange even, but succeeded.
Then tried them on a compueter with win2000 since I wanted options on which comp to use, but that didn't go well at all.

I can't help to notice how popular the POD's are so to make it easier for everyone to find this topic I've pinned it. At the same time I realize I'm making it harder on muntahunta who (I hope) will get more questions in this thread.

So thanks again for sharing your knowledge with us! smile.gif

hey POD fans!

Im just in the process of buying a new Guitar, either an RG550 20th Anniversary or a PGM301.

Im currently playing through a Korg Pandora which is great value for money, but am considering a POD X3. I really want to start recording and produceing my own compositions smile.gif

Is it in your opinion worth the upgrade? the Pandora is a littlse noisey sometimes.


Thoughts appreciated wink.gif

I'm a POD fan!!! ;-)

I've been so disappointed with earlier digital effects and somewhere in the mid or late 90's I gave up and just went with tube amps all the way.
So I still was a bit skeptical when I went to try out the X3 Live, in the shop he run it through an amp and concidering everything I read here before about - don't run it in front of an amp; I counted that in, while it still sounded quite good.

With headphones on when I got home I got started on the tweaking immediately since the presets blowed. Completely useless most of them! So to get the hands on a Cornforn 50 amp, one 5150 a couple of mesas (which I'm not sure yet how to tweak the best), a Powerball and a couple of Matchless... and they sound GREAT!
Baby I'm in digital heaven. Get one! And get the Live, it's got more connections and the Wah/Volume. You can get a pedalboard for the other one too but the price will end up the same I belive.

I havn't yet tried it throuhg a PA but I have recorded with it and it's teriffic, as a audio interface it's great, i'm not sure I have to get a new sound card even. I was going to since my old Guitarport didn't cut it and the internal one well haha

I recommend one!

Matt, I recently purchased the POD X3 Live and It is awesome. It has bass, acoustic and vocal support also. You will spend untold hours tweaking the endless assortment of mods, effects, amps and cabs. It does great with recording via many outputs. I use USB directly into my computer. I am getting ready to get an Atomic Reactor Amp for non headphone playing. I had the opportunity to try one out this week and It is great. It's a tube amp made especially for modelers. Check out the link below. If you call the company or send an email it is the owner of the company who actually talks to you. His name is Tom and he's a wealth of info. Let us know what you get. Good Luck.

Atomic Amps

Check out the sound samples on the Atomic MySpace page. There's a song sample called EuphoriaNoMore4Ya on there that is catchy as hell. I ve been woking on that ditty for a few days now. Very cool.

Now I have a problem with my X3 Live. Hope someone could help just so I know if it's a common one or if it's just me.


My Save button. Above it is "home" and below it is "input"

The save button goes about 40 ticks for a full turn. About 10 ticks are dead - the turning goes fine but the pressing sometimes has no respons, like a firmly mounted button, when pushed dow. Then another 10 ticks activated the "home" button and another 10 ticks activates the "input button". For the reminder I can feel the button go down, but there's no save.

I'm guessing there's a rubber pad or similar underneath that's slightly off position. But I can't see how that can be since the POD have just been standing on top of a table, no bumping, carrying or anything. And I have been saving sounds before so it has worked.

Has anyone heard of this problem before? *sigh* I'm probably looking at 2 weeks away for service. sad.gif
