Line 6 Bass POD XT Live
Pedals, multi-effects, amp modeling.
We therefore find the overdrive and saturation of all types modeled on famous pedals, a wha-wha, wha of self, filters diverse and varied, delays / chorus / flanger / phaser / compressor, etc..
Basically, this pedal has all the most used pedals from the past 40 years.
Amp level, we find a small thirty of the old Fender amp with SWR, through the Marshall, Sunn, Alembic, Aguilar, Vox, etc.. We can associate with a score of different speakers from the small 1x12 or 2x10 to 8x10 or 4x15 in the above mentioned brands. Everything is taken up by four different virtual microphones that we can move virtually.
Connection level, we find an instrument input, Variax input low, a normal output, DI output (no sound processing), and an entry to a USB port (for direct recording on computer).
The pedal features 64 memories that we can control the foot pedal on / off the amp, effects "stomp" (distortion, overdrive, auto wah, filters), the effects of modulation and delay / reverb. We find a pedal tuner for access to that doubles as a controller for the tempo of the delay and an assignable expression pedal to volume, wha-wha, what parameters or n'imorte effects and low Variax.

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple: pages that are not sucèdent in other pages or menu hidden. Also the parameters of the chosen Amli are directly controlled from the dedicated knobs.
The manual is delivered in English, but the Line 6 site, you can download the French edition.

SOUND QUALITY

There is something for all tastes. I find the amps very successful and the effects but may be less useful for bass players (after each style).
There is frankly no amp I do not like, depending on the styles, they all find useful.

After several weeks of use here is my verdict:
the sound through headphones is excellent frankly, after using a bass amp is a forgotten, it does not work. Then a sound system, why not, but the result is not the same as headphones.
Finally, I have chosen in order to make home made, but without disturbing neighbors with my two lamps and the body, there is a real problem: the sound alone is fine but unlike a real amp at mixing, it is impossible to place a coherent, low stands of the mix of a very special way: it is useless!

OVERALL OPINION

I have a few weeks and I love its endless sonic possibilities. I love the association with the Line 6 Variax bass that you can control with the pedals: eg it is possible to move from its ultra modern SWR amp, compressor and a Warwick bass with his old such an old Ampeg B-15 and predicted that a flat wound strings by pressing a single pedal ... it is truly magical!
Honestly, the POD XT Live can not be compared to other models or Behringer Boss type, we really are a cut above.

Despite all this, I sold it after a month: in the end, it may be regarded as a good headphone amp, but live or recording situation, it's almost unusable ... too bad!
