I just made my wife very mad when I came home with a pod X3 live last week. I already had a cheap Phonic 740 PA system that I normally use for karaoke but this pod sounds great through the PA system. Granted it doesn't sound as good as a real tube amp like my fender twin reverb with some simple effects. But it is so cool to have all those effects and amp models to play with.

My problem is I am not very good at tweaking things on these devices. We need some experts to show us how to tweak these things correctly. There are a lot of settings that when I change them I cannot tell the difference in sound. And I have no idea what I'm doing when tweaking the eq settings. From what I understand, the eq setting are very important on the pods.

Thanks! Yes, I'm using the POD like a multiFX and it works great. I won't use it directly by line to PA because it would mean that I wont use my amp distortion in any song. However I'll continue experimenting. wink.gif

Please lord tell me you are joking? You own a Fender Twin Reverb ohmy.gif I have always wanted one sad.gif They are absolutely out of this world amps. The clean sound is immense. But they are way too expensive. Is it the '65 one?

Make sure you download Gearbox from the Line6 site if you havent already done so. They recently updated the software so it is now compatible with the X3. This lets you make adjustments much easier than using the knobs on the POD.

No, it is just one of the more prevalent silver face versions that I did the black face mod on. The only trouble is, it has to be cranked up very loud to get the best sound out of it. This is a problem for me since I can't always do this at the house. I havn't even tried to use the X3 through it yet.

I've been so excited about using this peadal board that I just now started to use the gearbox software and learn how to use it. I agree, it is much easier to manipulate and manage patches this way. Creating tone names directly on the X3 is a pain.

the X3 live is a pedal, you can use it on stage, while doing a concert, the X3 (bean) is for home using, you can't change your sound from clean to distortion with a button, so it's kinda difficult to use it on stage

Hey, guys. I still have the same trouble (USB interface stopped working and I am losing all collabs, student instructor lessons, virtual band, that is, the most funny time in GMC sad.gif )
I finally managed to install my POD X3 live in another computer in order to isolate the problem and the conclusion was that actually the problem was with the POD.
I've just figured out that on system page there is usb firmware information.
It is saying
USB FIRMWARE VERSION: 0.00
That says something doesn't it? It is not a surprise it does not work and Windows do not recognize it at all...

Anyone knows how I can install that back?? I only know to install things on POD by USB interface, but well, USB is the problem itself... unsure.gif

I may be all wrong here but I think you have to download the monkey (a program) from line6.com and then upload the firmware from there. Problem is that that requires the USB. unsure.gif

Other from that, maybe there's a system reset to the POD you could try. If something was ruined with the USB settings after some time.

Hi! I checked a link that I found in this thread about atomic amps and I think that getting any of these amps sound interesting... Who tried it? What do you think? More samples that the ones that they have in myspace?

I just received an answer from Line 6 support.

He says that if USB firmwares shows 0.00, it is most likely a hardware issue...

Seems I will have to return it to repair sad.gif

Hey Gabe,

I have tried one and will purchase one soon. It sounds great with the POD X3 Live. Tom offers a money back guarantee. I highly recommend you dropping him a call or an email. I have yet to see an unfavorable review of this amp. I have read that they are working on expanding the line soon. Let us know if you take the plunge.

I just had a pod X3, that's really cool, and i was wondering what is the S/PDIF out for ? i know that we can record sounds with it, but i mean what's the difference between it and the USB2.0 ?

And by the way, does somebody know how do we create sounds by using our computer, and then put these sounds on the podx3, i installed line 6 Monkey, but don't really know what is it good for except updating our pod ...
otherwise i'm so glad to have one, i can't wait to record something with it

SP/DIF is a stereo digital audio output.

The USB is a 2 way data communication that can be used for recording, but also for setting up patches etc.

To setup patches on your computer you need to use Gearbox - you can use line6 monkey to download it.
