Line 6 Bass POD XT
It is capable of producing all the possible effects
The digitalization of the effects is absolutely perfect
Everything is ditable from the device and especially since the Mac or (less reliable), the Pc
by lintermdiaire dun extremely well done program.
The connection is via USB to program effects and edit.
It is not "rack" but is it really important?


It is extremely easy to use
and laccs the parameters is very intuitive. No need to read the manual which is full with humor.


The sound quality is STANDARD and sometimes you wonder if worth dinvestir in amps / pramplis very expensive, because the Bass Pod XT makes its nobility nimporte which amp.


I am the User for three years and I can not move men.
I absolutely found it no default.
There is nothing like the Bass Pod XT on the market.
The report qualitprix seems perfect.
On the day of today, this is a MUST. Dailleurs, virtually all
denregistrement the studios in the US have one or more.

Line 6 Bass POD XT
All types of effects available and more or less obvious to manage. after you just the right amount and know think a dedi peu.usage rather then in a home studio or live with a MIDI pedal.


GPs effects but sometimes a little tricky to edit both the diversity is great. when connecting to a PC POD was more the problem. everything becomes instinctive and entertaining. when you know your machine and everything becomes clear in two clicks you can change everything. manual very clear we could even see the subtitle "The POD for Dummies"

the cuts are very good.


In my opinion it should not be greedy and you must use the amp simulations such qu'ellessont original edition in order not to distort the sound. for the effects they are quite efficient but you just know the dose with partimonie. something essential if we want to ring the POD does not pay attention ublished in the set up has to choose the right output configuration according to what we are heading (stack / combo / console / headset) has changed everything .
Me I use quite cuts red & blue that are efficient and Pramper qq 'and I'm certainly not satisfied and the price of the beast. we must not forget that it is primarily the hands of the man who scultent sound and the instruments are also sound. with two left hands and thumbs to ring mold is low even at 4000 with a system that any valuable consideration to go with.
in short I am satisfied with the POD.
my only worry now would rather find a good bass synth patch and discussion forums Patch.

Line 6 Bass POD XT
A priori super technical, especially coupled with a shortboard pedal type, there's everything you need. Right, they could have done a 1U rack, it's a little weird to live a pod 2 times more ... Another thing is that there are only three effects processors simultaneously, sometimes it's a bit short when we look for the good hack (especially since the shortboard, there's four switches for departures at the foot of effects, including two that serve the same purpose, but nothing for the clutch eq: ???). It also lacks a loop for external effects send / return (but hey, cf. Below, as they already have problems with preamp and scanning, it may as well not to multiply the damage not 2).


Use no more complicated than any other digital multi-effects, further simplified with the publishers PC. There all good.


A priori effects but some variables as beads (including distortion), a priori simulation amp not bad at all, a priori simulation bof HP as "microphones" all seem to sound just so 60's, was difficult to get a report today. Anyway ... I say all this "a priori" because I agree with previous opinions: the preamp and / or scanning are fairly mediocre, it's food frequencies and dynamics, we feel even and by removing all the settings flat , not found his instrument well enough to have the desire. I can not really properly judge what happens after (effects, etc. simultaneously).

Interest tip: use a little tweaking for recording or headphones to work by not disturb the little family, but do not expect much that pulls her super, live, either before the the amp or insert, you lose too much, it's not playable when you start to have hacked his sound with some good stuff, it becomes annoying ... Consequence: I sold my shortboard and I refile the pod to my kind friend who had lent me, she may be able to sell it outright.

I tried the new Zoom few months ago, the effects are generally better at Line6, but the sound was coming it seems to me to remain as clear and fair review of the Zoom. Nothing either of them for me so ...


Used for 5 months, many (really) because tampered my expectations of good, nothing that happened to me like it since the expressiveness and the grain go too significant even for my level yet not so high amateur bass player. It's a shame, I think that with minimal extra effort on the quality of the preamp and digitization, line6 was a great thing: it's tough, full of good ideas, coupled with a shortboard that would make a ultimate and practical solution for a reasonable price yet, but it's definitely too much food as is the sound of the instrument. Disappointed, yet God knows I wanted to say good ...

Sancta's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 Bass POD XT
Modeling: Preamp / Amp, Bafle, + DI effect
Editable via USB port
1 input jack, a jack DI output, an output jack.


Very easy to use even more with the USB connection.
everything is easy to find.
French manual downloadable from Line 6. Well done and complete.


The effects of modeling are but some are really good, unfortunately we are talking about bass, so the effects of interest are only secondary.
As for modeling preamp / amp cabs, I was really disappointed. I have a Music Man Bongo, and unfortunately the color detrimentally POD sound. Even a masterpiece like bongo emerges diminished ...
There is no simulation that I prefer, they all disappointed me, I do not use longer than DI.


I for 1 year, it's really small price to pay for rendering, I tried every type of amp, eq tampered with the compressor still being hacked ... well it sounds in the headphones, but with tapping of home studio, there is the drama ...

No I do not have that choice would do, nothing like a real amp or preamp.

Line 6 Bass POD XT
All parrait trs allchant


Everything is very simple to use, the manual is in French trs clear


Trsdcevante at the pre-amp and amp, the effects are of good quality but may be the synth that I think are unnecessary, I prfere ball 100 times my bass or synth Digidesign.
Shame for a tool known for more than modlisation to be a multi-purpose ...
I prfre 1000 times the sound of my head Gallien Kruegger recording ....
So I do not give more than 3.


1 year
The price is a bit excessive for a gadjet, although the effects are of good quality (This is not necessarily what will make your bass sound I think ...)
I tried all models available except the epoch and a Roland parraissait me be the best.
In hindsight, I would do the same no choice

Fabrizio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 Bass POD XT
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
- 28 amp MODELS (ampeg, fender, marshall, acoustic, HIWATT, Mesa, SWR, Vox ...) + 22 MODELS speakers.
Rglages for each amp MODEL: drive, eq (bass, o-mid, hi-mid, treble), volume
Rglages for each speaker MODEL: type of micro (U47, D112, MD421) distance
And as a bonus: compressor, gate, eq 6 band semi-paramtrique, tuner
- 3 catgories effects: stomp (distos, fuzz, compression, synth, wah ...) / modulation (chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo ...) / Delay & Reverb (analog, digital, echo, reverse , spring, hall, flat ...)
an effect can be activated by CATEGORY so you can have for example the following string: fuzz + + chorus analog delay, but we can not have such distortion + wah, chorus and tremolo +. But good for bass, I think it's not too pnalisant.
- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)
- Modlisation software numrique

- Are they ditables? Via an editor Mac / PC?
- Yes! Soft edition available from the Line6 website, trs well done and very practical. USB connection allows the management of the unit time rl.

- What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
- Between a mono instrument jack asymtrique
- 1 x DI (dry signal TRS + 1 x Model (signal line on TRS
- One headphone
- 1 USB port (cable supplied)
- 1 RJ45 for pdalier Line6

- Is this a rack or rack MODEL?
- No. I do not know why have adopted this form of beans ... marketing purely my opinion. The cables come out of all the cts, not very convenient. And why such a diffrence in price with the rack version (Pro)!

I think they have not forgotten ... j'enlve just 1 point for the form bean: 9 / 10


- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
- Yes. The big improvement over the old version (BassPod): All parameters are visible on the screen. So if we want to edit one, we know what position he was before the change.

- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
- Yes. And even more with the software and USB connection.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
- Yes

Nothing wrong, 10/10.


- Effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?
- Yes. Line6 adj proven, the amp simulations are excellent. For registration is happiness!
Level effects, and fuzz distos are terrible, the synth is any fact used (an old boss from ME6B I had before, c day and night!), Modulations, delays, reverbs, are trs good quality I got.
The compressor, despite a unique rglage + or - (threshold, attack, release automatically adjust) is excellent! . Ditto for the gate, my old comp / gate Behringer is no longer the comparison, I put it in the closet!

- Which instruments do you use?
- A Lag Presence Deluxe and a Fender Mex JazzBass

- What are those you prfrez, you dtest?
- Most of my bass presets are on the "Classic Rock" (simultaneous Ampeg SVT), but I use and I love also the Hiwatt and Acoustic. Level effects, "Fuzz Pi" (Big Muff simultaneously) is standard, and I also use a lot of analog chorus, a synth or two, opto tremolo ...


- How long have you use it?
- 6 months. Live, I use both my Ampeg combo that direct the sound. At first with my sondier to hallucinate he had absolutely nothing touch, the sound is nickel. I also use it for recording though sr.
By the way: from curiosities I tried a guitar in it, with the effect: I do not seem to AC adapter.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
- The most: ct all-in-one, they thought everything about Line6 (I have no equity in their homes, but when it is to be said!), And everything is trs good quality simulations of the effects through the comp / gate, tuner ...
- A minimum: the form, but really c history to find a weak point.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
- I had a tight budget so I also INTERESTED Bass V-Amp Behringer (which has a price at the grass roots from the Bass PODxt). I could not try it but some opinions taient unanimous: the V-Amp is good / Bass PODxt is the bomb. My wallet suffered a little while but it seems justified in quality.

- How do you report qualitprix?
- Unbeatable. If we confine ourselves mainly what I use, look at the price of a pramp Ampeg + pedals (Big Muff, a good chorus, etc ...) + compressor / gate + + tuner etc ... There's no picture! There's more and more choice. Some purists will say good or nostalgic sr rllement that it does not sound original equipment, but performance is l.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
- Yes no hsiter.

Nicopole's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 Bass POD XT
I will not dwell on it.


Personally, I find the grip of the machine is super simple, in a few shot wheels we could find sounds that we are that I am not a fan of factory presets.

I managed to find the sound I was looking for without breaking my head, the edit mode is simple and clear. (The French manual is just as important)


The sound effects up to my expectations, level money is not better I think. I try the low GT6 and frankly I would do the same choice.

I use it with a low Moscato 6 strings on a recording station Cubase, USB Duo (M-Audio) and Powerbook G4 + Yamaha MSP5 ... frankly surprising! And live on a Peavey TKO 115 (small amp), but the pod me out sounds terrible.

I particularly like the clean sounds, distortion when AISIN that do not grow too much. I like the less I call unnecessary effects like synth!


I use it for the past 4 months
I particularly like its ability to be as effective as its clear that saturated
I already try the Boss GT6 low, and I had a Boss Overdrive pedal (which I shelved)
Value for money, I'd say this is what makes mieu
I'm a fan of Line 6 products, I like their sound and my guitar is what I choose!

Jackbass6's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 Bass POD XT
The range of effects is really very complete (I'm sorry just a whammy), and completely redesigned from the bass pod.
The amp simulation, hp and microphones are very very good, even excelentes.
Everything is digital, but a warm wish, c is what makes the interest of the preamp very realistic.
sounds are editable, and outputs make it easy to record on PC and other media.
n this model is not rack mountable, but the bass pod xt is the pro.


Configuration is very simple, but the edition is the least bcp.
The manual fishing a little, especially when it is in English (but I think that through the distribution network french, the doc will be translated.)

J uses my bass pod xt with pedalier line6fbv shortboard, which is also very good.


The effects are simply stunning compared to those who were present on the first version.
C is really the bulk of line6 progress in recent years.
The quality is really the appointment.
I used the via a sound card for recording on cubase, or entred amplifiers, taken by a 4 * 10 ebs.
Whatever the connection, my bass sound incredible, and the comparison with the ampeg preamp of my head really scared.
Warick love my bass pod xt bass, and they make good!


I use the bass pod xt right now for 2 months, and I have not finished n d be surprised by its capabilities and its quality.
C PROFFESSIONNEL IS A TOOL!! And versatility that will satisfy all expectations.
J before I was very disappointed by the other bass preamp modeling a (v amp and boss gt6b Behring).
report quality price level, I have a pretty enjoys preferential treatment, but the price in store is very very right being given the quality of the machine.

if I had to change, will be to take the rack format.

Line 6 Bass POD XT
Everything is set line6 site.

Note that the simulations synth pedal (bass synthesize type) sosnt fall! I amuse myself as a little crazy with ...
Another thing that is very good, DI output

I honestly do not see what may be missing a bassist with the PODxt, so 10 for CHARACTERISTICS


Possessing the dj pod XT (guitar), so I do not t ... dpays The only thing is that the Bass Pod Xt is more complete than his guitar version: more options, more menus, more pedals, etc ... One wonders at first what was going to do any ca ...

Therefore, relatively easy, but be patient ...
The manual is not great.


Nothing wrong, it gnial. I do not fit into the dbat do it sounds like what it simulates sense, I do not know. As against what I know is that the sounds are excellent. So 10.


A good 8 in gnral because with cect tool, I see no good cec you can ask for. Uh .. so. Of being cheaper.
