- 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
- 1 MIDI IN & OUT 1 MIDI

- 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

UTILIZATION

- 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.

SOUND QUALITY

- 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 ...

OVERALL OPINION

- 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.
