Line 6 POD X3 Live
All dj t said before ... so we will get into the heart of the matter ...

UTILIZATION

Gnrale configuration is simple when you have a can used line6 effects but the manual as it is sufficiently clear dpatouille trs quickly with bte! and then just type pod x3 live on you tube for the tutorial on rglages.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are effective trs condition like all multi effect too and have put in the right channel guitar amp effect ... I explain I plugged my pod on a Line6 amp thinking have the solution and the big disappointment ... I am all to my dealer and he told me prfr found the amp that goes best with the device: The Fender HOT ROD DELUXE Bluesman and it's a slap LA enhanced and trs Submitted!!
I do not put 10 because of the fact that it takes a vritable amp that really speaks pod

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month and so I advise everyone to use it well if ...

Line 6 POD X3 Live
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
78 amps, 98 effects plus The models of bass amp, mic, and cab prampli microphone.
There is plenty to do.
- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)
numrique from start to finish
- Are they ditables? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Yes, and a well Manir practice soon to be back pain.
- What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Everything is there. It is his strong point. S / PDIF, MIDI I / O, USB, FX send and return, Mic, Guitar, Variax and Auxiliary, CD, and XLR line out, headphones.
- Is this a rack or rack MODEL?
Pdalier, semi rigid. In the sense that a part is made of plastic and one metal.
I do not see it make old bones.
The pedals are comfortable trs, trs smooth

UTILIZATION

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
There are always problem as a USB audio card with her. A fix is ​​expected
The Pod in itself and given its size, is not easy to edit. But they made an effort with a notch more comfortable.

- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
We have seen worse, and there have been simpler. everything is a matter of habit
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
No, it's unclear intgral, with many omissions and errors.

SOUND QUALITY

- Effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?
There is drinking and eating, I think it's in the modulation, delay and reverb that is doing best. The distortion is a little messy if you push too far, that as a gain range of the standard.

Some sound a bit small, see same card from my DM4. Others admit the compltement improved. This is the effect of too many possibilities, we compare the effect of another, and we realize that some are average and other trsrussis. His big default, are in octaves and pitch shifter. A forgotten

- Which instruments do you use?
A Fender Telecaster
- What are those you prfrez, you dtest?
Again, modulation, delay and reverb.
The semblance of Whammy is poor. Trs well to a Dive Bomb, but impossible to play the octave.

Synth effects are not really useful and almost unusable, except with a bass.

Take the time to judge him, besides, I just edit my opinion. When beginners with, we trsdu. It sounds small, cold, straight and very dynamic. Ds but that depth, we must admit that sounds more than a good, good to see even trs.

Of course not everything is rosy. has not compete with all-tube combo and analog effects. But we are left with an arsenal that sounds.

I do not give more than 5 years modlisation to make a great leap forward.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
A few days
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Most is a good tool for trs model.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes, modlisation has known me. Line 6, Vox, Roland, Zoom
- How do you report qualitprix?
Well, considering what it proposes, the report is quite of the same lev.
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Difficult to say. Competition out his claws. Trs ago the high-end, as Axe Fx Ultra.

I correct some critics saw the big Line 6 all of the same address a lot of things from me.
We finally reamping with VST plug-in "Pod Farm" and this Platinum version for free. Which contains point by point, the possibilities of the Pod X3 (all the amps, effects, cab, mic, and chaining Dualtone) MIDI is finally a Manir srieuse implementations.

Still a few bugs here and l. And yet the trails for the reverb and delay when moving from one patch to another. It agaant!

Line 6 POD X3 Live
I just want to "dfendre" this little device is a marvel.

Sr Although it is not perfect, is a fragile, a little too plastic.
You have to spend a few hours before to understand how the various menus, with the tool GEARBOX everything is much more user friendly.
But once you have downloaded the sounds on offer by Line 6 and above those t crs by talented users. It sounds, it sounds of thunder. Acoustics, clear, delay in chorus, saturation, everything is possible with this machine!
And you can put two on. A good little machine sounds!

ps: if you sent by mail, make good transportation, it does not support "any" shock.

Line 6 POD X3 Live
J bought the x3 live before my season baloche to replace my old defective line 6 .. very disappointed in all .. even if he is switched on and off for practice effects accumulated in the program .. I find the sounds saturated too cold (a digital background) even if you get even in qd in "doing" okay .. a pair of missing a lamp preamp c j is clear ... I also resort to my old SansAmp distos to play in series the effects "standard" line of 6 .. I think I'll sell it to return to its classic analog style pedal vox mesa or out and my old boss SE70 for delay, chorus, equalo, gate ect .... .. d especially as the pod distos online in a sound that's been disappointing too "bee" that recalls the bloody roland gp 8 of the epoch (90 years I think) .. and then did not the air reliability of extra puique j have already broken the inter Inrush that the wha wha (also not top of the wha wha) jy have not yet tapped a blow ranger short .. .. .. disappointed by x3 can be I have the enough potash to make it sound better .. must say that playing with another scratch my amp possesses a brunette with a high-end isp .. viel me c is a light amplifier and an ibanez midrange .. then c is not the pod overtaking the differance of "size" thank you .. its a good Zique ciaoo

fenderman des montagnes's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 POD X3 Live
Numrique modeling pedals, modlisations large variety of amps, all the effects (or so) are l): distortion pedals, compressor, boost delay, wah, chorus, reverb, ... Intgr tuner.
The machine is actually a dual effects processor. We can if desired be between two instruments and features indpendamment paralllle (micro, or low, or electric guitar or acoustic guitar), or have two channels for processing an instrument (such as plugging his guitar into two amps paralllle each with its chain effect, which can give interesting sounds, see live demos on site X3 line 6). Personally I do not use with an electric guitar in between.
Connectivity enough complte in jack or XLR output.
Branch can be used directly in the mixer or in a guitar amp. Personally I use only branch of mixer and sound system, and it works very well in this context.

UTILIZATION

I find this remarkable machine think in terms of ergonomics and intuitiva use to play on scne:
- Control of sound banks, and dclenchement effects (pedal, compressor, delay, modulation, boost), switches from the wording itself pdalier (as it turns its good or dyeing old effects pedals). Tap tempo switch very practical to fit the foot time delay to the tempo of the song. the boost switch dclenche compressor / booster situ output of the amp to add Modl level, very practical to have more gain in the solo parts.
SETTING THE select amp (volume, bass, treble, mids, presence, reverb) from the potentiomtres pdalier (as is his guitar amp RULES).
Volume pedal / wah on pdalier. Select the volume / wha is done simply by pressing the pedals ct bottom edge (like pedals on a volume / wah).
Selection, rglage and recording sounds in the user bank is from the menu buttons and the screen (I did not test the rglage from a PC) . It may be that part that can some Drout. We must of course read the manual to understand some of the dpart lments cls operation, and then I find that it becomes quite intuitive, since the menus are fairly well designed.
Some small problem of the stability of drivers dpart (which seems s'tre rsorb over time), which forced me from time to time reslectionner sound chosen.
For this reason I put 9 / 10.

SOUND QUALITY

I find the quality sounds and effects excellent, trs crdible for use in branch live sound environment. I russi get clear sound, crunch, distortion for rhythm and lead distortion excellent (style pop rock, blues, rock, hard rock, some plants are used almost sounds directly. You have to fiddle about a bit to refine its rglages (noise, tonalitmix effect / direct ...) for what awaits her ear, depending on his guitar, Systm of amplification used the type of music practice.

OVERALL OPINION

Amp machine / multi-effects, while one with an outstanding sound quality, complte, trs well designed for scne, which can travel in lightweight rpt or in concert.
I put 9's attention because of the small line 6 of PBS stability of drivers met at beginners.

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

Line 6 POD X3 Live
On paper, this pod is a real massacre. Basically, the Pod XT Live with all the "Model Packs", input / output and more (between micro, 2 between instruments, XLR and jack outputs, etc.). And especially a double string processing which allows for two simulations parallle drafts. As guitarist and singer, c'tait exactly what I expected ...

UTILIZATION

The edition can be done in two Manir:
- Directly through the interface of Pod
- PC / MAC with Gearbox Software

Typically with this kind of approach, called the house slowly presets on its computer, and then editing APRS in BPS (to adjust the levels in most cases).

If the edition on computer is simple and intuitive, even for the dual tone, I find the edition on the Pod lets DSIR. But being a regular at the Pod XT Live, I n'tais forcment trs not comfortable navigating the menus. The dual tone brings a lot of paramtres supplmentaires rgler, and in the end, it was a beautiful plant gas ... In the edition, for a dual tone (eg voice + guitar), was forcment rgler 2-way, and thus 2 times more alterations in prvoir RPET, if is more ...

Regarding the manual, I just opened 2 or 3 to find information, but it looks plutt full ...

SOUND QUALITY

It gets to the point that FCHE ...
This product looks so good on paper ... When we had a Pod XT Live, we know that the dj sound quality is not worth all the good stuff true analog, but it remains all the same all perfectly acceptable in one branch PA.
We are left with potentially two times more processing power and all the model packs included. But unfortunately, Line 6 has made the choice to save on the essential elements of the processing chain that is for me rdhibitoires. Here are some:
- The micro prampli is simply unusable for the potentiomtre rglage level of no effect on the little prs 9/10me the knob of the race, and the 10 th last, you go from "just not the" "full of fried" unacceptable. I had heard of this problem on the forums that apparently applies to all POD X3 Live: unfortunately the case and if your singers and you plan acqurir the Pod X3 Live to a , go your way!
- The headphone output is fool quality. I compared the same presets Pod X3 Live and Pod XT Live. Rsultat: m'tais I never realized how the headphone output of the Pod XT Live silent good as that of the X3 is rotten! The signal to noise ratio is at least trs trs below that of the Pod XT Live.
- The passage of a preset gnre of the other transient noise. So the point I ended up returning the DCID Pod X3 Live to the dealer. I also wanted to compare with the same configuration presets the X3 and XT, XT when to switch to another without a preset that can not be aware of nothing, the X3 g NRE espce of the "click" really unbearable ... I speak here of "click" sound caused by the processing chain (not by the noise switch mtalliques cr).

OVERALL OPINION

I used one week, the time to test RPET in the house then.
In two cases, I found it worse than the Pod XT Live for various reasons evokes above, for résumé:
- Ct rglages manual is a gas plant vritable ... one more thing for guitarists to make new friends in RPET!
- The ct, a micro pramp trs bad, bad headphone output and transient noise between presets

In addition to these two points, I note two lments ngatifs supplmentaires:
- Building the X3 Live plastic: it's much more lightweight and less stable ground, and it is less solid carrment
- The AC power supply: dj than the XT Live is not the top, the cable connection and power supply connector block seem too fragile (single tube on each cable connector more end and smaller).

In conclusion, this Pod is a great dception on paper because he had all the qualities I was looking for as a guitarist / singer for scne and RPTES. Line 6 wanted to offer less than 500 euros an evolution of the XT Live to be in fact a s'avre rgression ...

Line 6 POD X3 Live
All effects are l.
All numrique
No publisher Mac / PC for now.
MIDI in out
Full XLR Jack Audio out, SPDIF out, mic and player (mp3 or other)
Pdalier.

UTILIZATION

Not for beginners IMMEDIATE but doable for those who are not scotch on guitar / cable / amp.
No software currently shipping makes uncomfortable but possible.
Manuel clear.

SOUND QUALITY

Extra

OVERALL OPINION

Pdalier gnial in sound, connections, amount of effects. In particular, the SPDIF output, which saves 2-way (requires STREO) if the mixer in possde, MOTU Traveler, for example).
BUT, there is a but, no editor available for the moment, and that has lasted five months. When we had used to edit with a computer, you get the nose of the machine with the blood that rises a notch against the head not very big but more important than the Pod XT Live .
Line6 has released an update of the firmware (internal software) which should allow the future to use editor but in my case, and I'm not alone, it produces a sound resembling an acute feedback (F # 14 I box) that dclenche random image. Check out the website of the forum Line6 X3 at ddi.
That said to put a (big) BMOL this excellent machine (when running). My solution to return as the previous version of firmware, but I permettra_t_elle the use of editor? Line6-released version t_il clean it because all keys are not machines (lottery!). In short I love BCAN but ...

OVERALL OPINION

I bought two days for 469 euros on the site of playback.fr.
He exudes strength.
I already had a 2 pod, a pod xt, pod pro. this is my first pedalboard effect and I'm not disappointed. we can jump in with both feet on it, it does not budge. is the top with a Variax 700 branch above. is changed with a click of guitar, amp, effect, etc.. impressive.
I hesitated between x3 and x3 live. 100euros for more connection you have a midi interface + Variax + pedals. ca vautvraiment instantly. for the record, I plugged into a Peavey Classic 20 has lamp. the sound is exceptional

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

Line 6 POD X3 Live
Prampli guitar / bass / vocals complete with all the hyper effects ncessaires cratif an environment and quality.
That's on top of numrique actualism that even without lamp provides trsralistes sounds and quality.
The edition is trs complte whether the BCAN directly or with a PC.
Connection at the top with XLR outputs, S / PDIF, midi, USB, headphone, effects loop and between the famous Variax for.

UTILIZATION

Given the capabilities of the Next-Generation Pod (even if it is not far from the trs Pod xt live) can be expected to have difficulty navigating the war machine but I got everything is well thought out and fairly intuitive.
That said we must love even when minimal tweaking options such as routing and assignment are many trs.
If you direct your gender in Fender Strato, will certainly be a somewhat complex even when.
The edition of the sounds is pretty easy but it's true that I have on several other dj jou pdaliers to Prior. Can be for beginners in a pdalier "numrique" this may be a little Drout. Nevertheless, there is a maximum of usable presets nice now if we look good.
The manual is clear and pais. But we can make the choice of just the minimum.

SOUND QUALITY

Level effect is extremely effective.
The pod is complete and not worth dbourser supplmentaires of euros to buy complmentaires sounds (as in the Pod Xt) Intgr because everything is automatic. As with every pdalier must be patient and browse through all the sounds but what ism for the majority.
I use this pdalier Ibanez 7 string with Seymour Duncan with microphone and at the same time with a little electro and your exact guitar is excellent with both.
This is truly simultaneous double modlisation extra (the two circuits pdalier possde spars is like having two pdaliers for the price of one).
There is nothing superfluous my opinion. I love all the possibilities that this offers Pod.

OVERALL OPINION

So I use it for three weeks but I feat bottom.
I can not find anything obvious that is ngatif X3 live on, even if it is a bit fragile at first.
I jou on tons of stuff before: Pod 2.0, no amp, Korg, Vox Valvetronix, Zoom ... and frankly it is at the top of the basket with no problem.
It is clear however that the price is if you just lev a pdalier effect and that was a good amp. But for my use live plugs directly into a console with two guitars simultaneously and two direct outputs that do not ncessitent DI is the top.
I think up Submitted, Line 6 still out products of good quality but which still lacked a little something. So we bought and was a little unsatisfied, but the hand of a small lamp pramplification (which will be released probably on a future release because the Russians have Line 6 ...) I do not see amliorer how this product.
If s'tait again, I Do not hesitate. Trs expensive but good!
