Before I purchased te X3 my rig consisted of a 1967 Fender Princeton Reverb Amp and a 1996 Line 6 AxSys 2/12. The X3 Live sounds outstanding, it has tons of features, easy to get the hang of, and is convenient. I can now confidently leave all my amps at home when it is time for band practice and gigs. The two amps simultaneously kick major butt, it adds another dimension to the possibilities of tonal versatility. I understand this is essentially the preamp to the Vetta II with some additions. My brother has the XT live, this definitely has more clarity than the XT, a couple hundred more presets, more outputs at higher quality, and also more amp models. It was a hard decision between the Spider Valve and the X3. The X3 won because of versatility and convenience for this working man. The tonal quality of digital modeling has finally gotten to the point where you can leave your treasured tube amp safely at home. *NOTE* In mid-January 2008, there will be a plug-in released to enable the X3 to work with Line 6 Edit, along with many other programs enabling you to record directly to your computer.

PROS: this is the BEST for a live performance... this thing is so versatile in so many ways i wont have enough space to write it in here... you have so much control of your sound in ONE pedal its crazy Cons: i love the sound of my marshall MA100C amp with my gibson, the clean is very nice but the distortion department needs some help... so I decided to buy this stomp pedal to get a good distortion, chorus, delay etc... so i plug this guy in(with ALL of the FX turned OFFFFFF)and it made my clean and crisp sound dissapear!!! what the heck!!! the crisp sound of my tubed amp is gone and how do you expect me add all the other FX when i have to DIGITALLY imitate the gibson/marshall sound i had? what a hassle... dont get me wrong, youll sound good and it could pass for a gig and stuff, but you can sound BETTER, this product compress so much out of your guitar/amp that it takes away the natural sound the 100+ effects were useless, youll only use like 20 of them TOPS!!! from my experience... i paid for the whole thing, but only used 1/4 of it because the rest of the FX were too cheezy and pointless, unless you get REALLY WEIRD with your music -1 star coz it took my amps soul away -1 star coz of tone (could be better for the price) +1 star coz of prize +2 stars coz of how well thought out this is built, if only other pedals were built this way

The greatest!

By Jesse McKamey

from Tennessee

I am still setting this pedal board up but I have to say this thing does not mess around. I bought the last one on the floor at the time and it didn't have the manual with it, (not Line 6's fault) but the board is quite easy to learn and edit once you get a hang of the menus. I already found "my sound" and have the presets set but I plan on learning this unit throughly. (which would be easier if I had the manual here in front of me on paper instead of the PDF from the website, my printer doesn't work...lol) If you want to save space, and your back, get this board, you won't be sorry! I play bass,in a band, guitar and sing my own songs, at home, (record into a DAW) so the fact that this unit has provisions for all of these things makes it even a better deal. But be fore warned; though the pedal has a few good presets out of the box, the levels and eq settings had to be set up. This isn't an instant gratification machine. You have to set it up to use it with what you have for the best quality sound. I have been keeping an eye on Line 6 from the beginning, and have been in bands with guitar players that use them for years. (since the first product up until now) and I really cannot see why someone would want to drop the bills for a BIG NAME amp and cabinet when they can get the same sound out of a Line 6 product plus so many more to choose from. I own a 1967 Fender twin Vibrolux, that I have been using for about 10 years. It weighs about 80 pounds. This board weighs maybe 10 pounds and I can pull up SEVERAL Fender amp models that sound spot on. There is no excuse anymore, save your back and your money and buy this. Spend some time with it and you won't be sorry!

Great Great Great

By Ben

from South Carolina

This is my favourite multi-effect. I've played the Boss GT's and I must say they sound a little better but they are difficult to master. The POD X3 Live is extremely simple. You can put out amazing sounds without even looking at the manual. I do have two things to say though: some of the effects are a little much or don't have the classic sound and I wish the EQ could have been 5-band instead of 4-band.

line 6 pod x3 live!

By javi

from chula vista

i dont know wher to start, ill just say, this thing is AMAZING!! any sound you want is in here. you can even record using your computer. yeah, it comes with free reording software. it has basically all of the pedals in the world built in and they sound sikk.. its easy to use once u get the hang of it but i would recomend reading the manual a little bit. the gate on this works great, the distortion is killer, and the effects are sikk. also, this thing has many built in amps and cabinets for a couple of instruments and they sound great. using this thing live is great, also for practice. i have no concerns about this its just perfect. i would recomend this to any guitar player who plays any type of music.. this thing is the best multi effects prossecor out there!

Don't believe the hype...

By Jacob

from Dayton, OH

A lot of people want you to believe that to get a "good" tone, you need to spend a fortune on vintage amps and effects. They tell you that a POD simply doesn't sound as good. They are wrong. I am seriously blown away at the sounds I get out of this thing, and with some tweaking you can get amazing tones. As always, don't bother with presets, you have to tweak these to sound good with your playing and your guitar. But the POD X3 is the greatest amp modeler I have ever heard, and putting it into a floor processor is fantastic. I run this thing straight into the PA when I'm playing and it sounds great. Gearbox lets you take the tones you record with right onto the road. Look at the POD this way, it's an amp modeler first, with some effects built in. If you're debating between a GT-10 and an X3 Live, decide whether you want a lot of great amp models or a lot of great effects. That's where they differ. For me, I want most of my tone to come from the amp, and I'll add a little delay and some compression. Also, a little boost from an overdrive pedal sometimes helps. If you want great sounding amps all in one device, this is the ticket. Sorry for the long review...I'm just stoked to have finally found my tone!

Wow...

By Elliott

from California

Man, this thing is amazing. Every sound you could ever want at your fingertips is right here...the effects are top-notch, the interface does take some getting used to, but you read the manual and you'll be set. Worth pretty much every single penny, the amps sound great, and although some might complain that they might not sound exactly like it, for all real purposes, these models will work, and they'll work very well.

As good as it claims to be

By Christine

from dc

I had a fairly unique analog pedal setup. This in one fell swoop replaced the need for me to have an amp, and the need for me to have the pedal setup. I was going into territory that I never thought something like this can do. And the clarity and harmonics...dead on. I have tried other pods and di boxes before, this is by far the best. The balanced input being one of the nicest features, it is what has kept guitarist chained to amps, well that and the lack of good tone from products. This solves both problems, balanced input allows for guitarists to plug into PAs, and this thing delivers effects with excellent amp emulation. Line 6, you outdid yourself, which is good, I was getting sick of carrying my amp.

Sounds Great

By stasisguitarplayer

from PA

This is a very useful piece of equipment. It's easy to use if you spend a little while tweaking it and get the hang of it. It sounds best if you use two tones at once and pan one left and one right. The sound this way is huge. I set up a clean, overdrive, high gain, and lead (a,b,c,and d) to one user number, say 20. That way I can use it as easy as a channel switcher on an amp. Then, 21 is a whole new amp. I know that people like to whine that it doesn't sound just like their super expensive old tube amp. Well, how much does that tube amp sound like itself after being mic'd, mixed and reproduced through house speakers? I'd say, it's not at all the same. I use to lug around two tube stacks and I have to say, they stay at home now. I get compliments that my sound is clearer now. I set up in 3 minutes flat, and now that the bass player is using one in my band we can load up into a tiny car if we want. People who say these sound bad or fake are clearly setting it up wrong (or mad because they spent three grand on a huge amp). I tried the model of the Peavey xxx vs. the real thing by using it as a preamp in the loop. When I A/B'd them the only difference was that the model didn't have that annoying fuzz sound when I stopped playing. So, I think it sounds pretty spot on except for the fuzz and hiss. Hey, maybe some people have the same issue with these as with cds vs. records, the cd clearly has better sound quality, but some people who grew up listening to records miss the crackle. Oh, well, on with the new.

Just Awesome!

By GravityTank

from Saint Joseph, Michigan

I'm a live bassist and I also record guitar and bass on my computer. I'm an effects junkie, the POD X3 Live has replaced all my pedals and other amp modelers. I love this thing. Depending on what venue I play, if they have a good monitor system, I don't even need to use my amp, just run two XLR lines into the snake, because I love the dual tone. Even if you are not that big into effects, you can find any amp tone you want. Just buy the thing.

POD X3 Live

By Brian

from Kansas City

I bought the X3 Live because my gear was stolen. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I'm running it direct into my church soudn system and it sounds great. Get on the Line 6 web site and through Gear Box you can download hundreds of sounds and it's very easy to edit because everything's right in front of you on the computer screen. The unit has so many options and the models sound very close to the real thing.

I cant believe my ears!!

By Marc T

from Novato Ca

Let me start off by saying, I am a huge tube/analog tone nut! I have a Vox AC30, keeley modded overdrives, high end gibsons and fenders. I have a Line 6 AX212, which I honestly never really liked the tone of. I feel in love with the AC30, and vintage marshalls. I bought this X3 Live after listening to Lincoln Brewster who is an advocate for the X3. I tried it out and was impressed... Once I spent a LOT of time engineering some patches.. I found the tone to be really unbelievable. They have come so far with these new X3's. Do yourself a favor and try one out. The tone is definitely there, you just have to work hard to achieve it. I bought this just for backup and portability, and for "quiet" practicing. I would be the last person to advocate this thing, because I am true to tubes, but to my surprise, it exceeds my expectations!!!

Sound card function dropped out

By Jim Adams

from Peoria IL

I owned the POD X3 live, but I returned it to Guitar Center, and got a BOSS GT-10. I liked the sound of the POD X3 Live, but while I would be jamming along with tunes on my computer or, even worse, recording, the sound card function would drop out, and I would have to start all over again, needing to reboot the POD. Plus, it does not support Linux, which was kind of a big pain in the a@#. The BOSS GT-10 come through whereas the POD falls short. I did like, however, the fact that the POD X3 had stereo XLR outputs, which is something the BOSS unit does not. I also like the look of the POD better. I also did not care too much for the synth patches on the POD X3 Live. They were a bit cheesy. I like the synth patches on the BOSS GT-10 better. All in all, I think that the BOSS is the better unit.

Awesome Product

By Eddie Windhorst

from Paducah, KY

I love Line 6 Products! When the first Pod XT came out (prior to usb drivers being released) I took a chance and purchased one. I also owned a Flextone Plus amp, Pod X3 (kidney bean) and now I'm the proud owner of the X3 Live. This thing is great for live performances and recording. I play an Amercian Strat through it at church and go straight out of the XLR outs to the sound board. Vocals, bass and acoustic guitars sound stunning through this versatile piece of equipment as well. I currently don't even own an amp and quite frankly, don't know if I'll purchase one. Thank you to Guitar Center for the great deal on this product and thank you again to Line 6 for making such a great product!!

a great pedal to invest in!

By x.d.c.

from killeen, tx

I have read many reviews on the pod x3 live when i was waiting for mine to come through the mail. took forever! lol once i got it i was busy working away on it. i was skeptical about being able to get calrity out of it when recording and playing live and trust me you don't know till you do it! to get to the point when i used the xt live the clarity was decent when pluging into an interface for recording into pro tools. the clarity from the x3 is better hands down. i tried lookin for reviews on how to get rid of that annoying fuzz sound when plugging the x3 into even a pa system. my answer to that from experimentation was to use the studio direct mode. i figured if it sounds good when plugged into pro tools through an interface it should be able to sound just as good live, and it delivered in spades. this is a great pedal regardless. too many people tell me that it sounds horrible. fact is this thing can sound bad and it can sound good. you just have to know exactly what you want out of it. i recomend using a separate multi effects pedal with this to get better tone with the distortion. i use a zoom pedal from my guitar into the x3. i used the x3's l6 treadplate which is based on the mesa boogie dual rectifier...so fuzzy! lol..then i used the 4x12 line 6 cab with the sm 57 off axis and the distortion boost with eq to get rid of the fuzz from the distortion. it sounded muffle so i fixed it up with the parametric eq. i should mention that eq comes in handy in a tight situation! my answer to anyone who has been searching for ever to get rid of that fuzz is to use the studio direct mix when plugging into a pa system for playing live or recording into a mixer or interface. i'm done with this review. hope it helped. there's nothing better than experimenting with the actual thing.

WOW!

By Aaron Wilhite

from Spanish Fort, Al

This is an amazing peice of equipment. I just got it today and I played it over thru an old sony pa system. The tone is great. I give it 5 stars for its easy usage, five star for tone, and 5 stars etc. I played with this with a Ibanez ART 100 guitar, a Peavey Millinium bass. It works for every instrument that it uses it for. he tone is great in all categories, I recommend This to a friend, you and everyone. If you want tone, easy usage, durability, effects, brains and control all in one, this is your peice of device. I reccommend this product!

wall of amps, refrigerator sized effect cases go BYE BYE!!!

By Sean R

for years ive always tossed the idea around do i save a ton of money for at least 2 amps to create a stereo sound? or should i consider a computer program like amplitube or whatever but without a doubt the POD X3 is my soulmate! im obsessive compulsive in regards to my tone. im very picky and alot of things wont give me the sound i want but theres no doubt that the POD X3 truly completes my rig. i will never buy a single amp or effect again because this machine does it all!!

Good, but can improve

By Zenabi

I got this pedal for Christmas and loved it. All the sounds are killers. The only downer is that it dose not have a drum machine. For someone who is not a pro, that is very important. the only other thing is you can't switch through the sounds. you halve to push several buttons. when you are trying to switch sounds between several songs it can be very annoying.
