    We do more Submitted Pod, which provides simulation MODELS 32 amp and 15 speakers and MODELS of all if you flat with a small section of a few light effects but dpanne well.

    You can of course use it with a pdalier noon, optional (Line 6) or other
    It is, as the photo suggests, a version 19 '2 units ...

    UTILIZATION

    Nothing is easier than edit a sound with the Pod Pro! : We choose the p'tit amp, a speaker type (you can also bypass the speaker type), we add the effect you want ... and much sr is the param RULES tres drive, legalization, volume output ...
    Only thing not really practical use ncessaire hold the button to select some amps, some paramtres (including output volume numrique) MODEL and the speaker (would it t no more sense to direct The models available speaker rather than the effects??)

    In terms of amps, you should know the assay paramtres (drive, bass ...) depends on the type of amp select.

    The presets are honntes, without being fabulous (except those in section n9!)

    The manual is adequate and allows himself even small touches of humor, always nicer than Australian type manual Roland ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    We arrive in the heart of the matter:
    yes, simulated amp (I use them even if not all) are really ... aaah ... fabulous ... and especially for use in the studio (because what you hear is what is really recorded!) over the investments of micro dangerous! Live, I never tried. but it seems it's not on top of APRS what I read on the forums

    My prfrs MODELS: The Rectified 2 clean the line 6 amp and MODEL obtained with the Hold and line 6 insane (the clean of it is really great!)

    I use it with an Ibanez Sabre S540FM (team of paf pro and tonzone), and with good old loop GX700 (the coup, I use the section not really effect the Pod) and input I sometimes try e A helping boost pedals with a boss MT-2, to give a little more attack

    I do not know the original amps and I could not compare them with simulations ... but the simulations are all the same good quality of trs. Line 6 MRIT its really reputable.

    However, I am a strong bump in the medium, and Rectified and consors The models, one is sometimes tempted to push a little more saturation ... o the usefulness of MT2 in SERIES ... I like and I ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I play a lot in the progressive directory (type Spock's Beard, flowerkings, RPWL, Porcupine Tree ...), which ncessite often a wide range of sounds .. and the pod has done everything for me!

    The pros: the quality of simulations amp / speaker in the studio, the diversity of what we can play with (you can combine any amp with any speaker type ...), the size, robustness, SPDIF output, effects loop, the whawah with trs trs pdalier really good (I still have my place to cry baby ...)

    The -: we are sometimes too, the bump in the medium that it can correct the effects section (a little light, but the pod is primarily a simulator so not shock me ...), a button hold

    I pay in USD in 4900 to The Universe last August ... I think I referrer the same choice despite the release of the pod XT (not super size and effect section that interest me ...). No problem, I referrer the same choice!

    I bought it on occasion about 6 months ago because I needed something small and not too rotten. Instead of a, I had something really compact and an unbelievable sound quality.
    The amp models really dtour Vallent.

The SETTING THE drive and eq are important and interacts bcp them which can make it difficult for the Czech newbie, quick bcp refinement possible in the collaboration of sounds. In this regard, I found the cd is frankly soundiver rat and unstable, better download the software line6 edit on the manufacturer's website in order to work its sounds the mouse to CRER sound banks .. etc. .. The line6 edit is even more hyper stable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month, I still wonder why I did not do this more NVESTMENT tt, which would have allowed me to save on the purchase of hardware purchased prcedement bcp so good and reliable. I work in bcp mao and I think I find the configuration work idalie. The price is ridiculous on occasion in relation to the quality and potential of the pod, I will may be the latest version xt.

    I've had one month (before jOperation an xt and we feel the difference!)
    I like the sound more realistic and punchy than cold palt as pod xt!
    jaime no tempo button is boring to configure some truk ..
    I try so the xt, the vamp, the Flextone (even if c amp) but I really found my joy!

    Great first edition

    Line 6 POD ProPublished on 09/12/11 at 20:09

    I am a little biased towards all things Line6 when it comes to effects units....not amps. I have used the POD live, POD rack mount, and the XT unit. There is a common operation that flows throughout the POD series that makes effect tweaking pretty smooth and effortlessly. Once I got the first POD unit which was the live rig I learned how Line 6 tailored their units. However, this unit flows more line there floor boxes such as the DL4 or FM4. This is the first edition ad the tone of these things haven't really changed at all from generation to generation. Just tweak-ability and functionality has changed.

    I am a little biased towards all things Line6 when it comes to effects units....not amps. I have used the POD live, POD rack mount, and the XT unit.

This is the first edition ad the tone of these things haven't really changed at all from generation to generation. Just tweak-ability and functionality has changed.

    The screen isn't going to be like regular PODs where it is mostly digital screen editing. You do have a solid screen but somewhat limited if you have use the POD Pro products. You will have to twist the knobs and look where you control is to know where your at. The new POD X3 conquers this issue and is more digital screen editing. Even though you have midi capability so if using with a Ground Control Pro or some other floor midi switcher you can set up your chain of effects and click your foot control for quick on the fly present changing.

    UTILIZATION

    Both PODs for guitar feature 32 Amp Models, 16 Cab Models, Effects, & more, with A.I.R. direct outs for recording and live setups. POD Pro is the perfect POD for your rackmount system, and supports a slew of additional pro features. All POD family products feature:
    • Award winning Line 6 Amp Models that emulate an all-star collection of legendary amplifiers.
    • 36 user memory locations so that you can create your own customized collection of killer sounds. Organize them to match your set list, your session needs, or any doggone thing you want. After all, it's YOUR POD!
    • Stereo Balanced or Unbalanced 10 TRS outputs, so you can plug it into anything from your home stereo to a really expensive mixing board.
    • Separate Stereo Headphone output to keep your neighbors (or your spouse, for that matter) from staging a counterattack when you're writing that first big hit in your apartment at 3am.
    • Chromatic Tuner, because playing out of tune isn't cool.
    • Cabinet Tuning Mode. The Amp/Direct switch allows POD to be optimized for different applications. Select Direct when running POD directly into a mixer or recorder. Select Amp when using POD as a tone-shaping front end for another amp. POD delivers several tuning modes for the Amp position, selectable at power-up. For example, by default, POD products for guitar expect to be plugged into the guitar input of an open-backed combo. Other tuning modes allow POD to be optimized for connection to the power amp input of a closed-back system, or into closed-back cabinets.
    • ToneTransfer Compatibility. Line 6's ToneTransfer Web Library, is constantly expanding. The sounds you collect transfer seamlessly between POD, POD Pro, and Flextone II series amps, so wherever you go, all your sounds can make the trip.
    As if all this wasn't enough, we also include the POD Tools CD which contains:
    • Emagic™ SoundDiver™ software (PC/Mac) for expanded feature access via MIDI. You can get at additional effects parameters, do strange things with the wah functions and lots of other fun stuff..

    SOUND QUALITY

    I was using this with a Strat and a Les Paul into a Marshall JCM2000 into a vintage Marshall 4x12 with blackbacks. The effects such as delays and choruses sound fantastic! This is where I lived with this unit. Did not even bother with the amp sims. The range of delays, flangers, choruses give you most everything you will use in a recording or live situation. If you rely on mostly effects with your guitar sound then I would recommend then stepping up to an X3 or the POD Live units.

    OVERALL OPINION


    The thing I enjoyed most about this unit was the cool delay and flanger sounds. This is a unit I would use sparingly when I needed to color my natural amp tone with some delays or flanger. I would never use this to get an amp sim or sound that I did not normally have.

    The is a great intro to the POD family. They run about $200 used and online give or take. For someone who does not use effects that much or someone who would like to get started in the effect tweaking arena who is on a budget I would highly recommend them to this product. You are going to get some great tones to add to your rig for well under what most companies charge for one stomp box.

    I think Line 6 is one of the best if not the best companies out there who provide solid effect units for the all-in-one consumer who wants to keep things simple and clean. I would play this unit any day of the week. I don't use too much effects so something like this is perfect for me and it is perfect for home use!

    - Guitar, essentially, experiments may be tempted, but it will not go very far, except perhaps taken for types "megaphone''to equalize to overcome the peat caused by high degrees of saturation
    - Gives the very low (as a preamp '), although he said fault?
    - In stud 'should be used only what he does best; emulate cabins (with a marked tendency for fat saturation)

    OVERALL OPINION

    - 5 years
    - I never liked the "all in one''type Boss, Zoom, and others, it's all avt a device for large agreements
    - What I like best is to approach a Rectifier with flexibility to accommodate the
    - Value for money retrospectively good, very good aujroud'hui used, but instead I direct the novice to the Torpedo (French I believe it), well above
    - The experiment: to see the head used as ...
    I do it often with a vintage preamp, which provides clear sound much better.

    The previous opinion seems unwise, because it can really lead to bcp different sounds depending on set-ups, and it seems robust.

    Not recommended for those seeking SOUND BLUES-ROCK CLASSIC ROCK SOUND EVEN brittish: This is an often aimed his rock burn well, peeping into the west-coast, continental or so metal.
    ITS CLEAR BAD but I do not drop the note about it, it was not what I wanted.

    Practice tells me that it is better to link the effects and especially the compression before him, and then refine.
    In DI, facing the instrument input of Avalon: much better adapted to the guitar. Instead, soften with the lamp, the cuts are preferred.
    Requires at least a foot addition, to avoid being dependent on the amps distortion booths, and more to modulate the sound.

    Bought used rue de Douai, my digital connectivity "consumer grade''does not work: I opened when Proshyan out of the rack.

    Line 6 POD ProPublished on 03/27/08 at 07:44
    The POD Pro is basically the same amp modeling technology and effects contained in the POD unit but contained in a rackmount unit with actual knobs so editing presets on the fly is much easier. It has the capability to be controlled by a floor footswitch, though I never forked out the money for it and I don't play out so I don't require that kind of control.

    On the rear of the unit it has stereo outputs to go to power amp, footswitch jack, effects loop input and output, and a single guitar input on the front.

    Its pretty sharp looking, sitting in a rack all lit up.

    Its pretty sharp looking, sitting in a rack all lit up.

    UTILIZATION

    Editing the presets is super easy, its as simple as twirling knobs to dial in the desired amp model, gain, eq, and effects. Fine tuning the paremeters on some of the effects would probably require the foot controller but the stock settings aren't bad and satisfied me. I actually did read the manual which is unusual for me, it was very informative and saved me some time tinkering with it.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I played a couple of humbucker equipped Les Paul style guitars through it, while running it into a samson 120 watt power amp, then into a crate 2x12 combo amp I turned into a speaker cab.

    The amp models are the typical Line 6 stuff, sometimes you are suprised at how close they get capturing the "essence" of a particular tube amps sound like the Dual and Triple Rectifier models, but since modeling technology is not quite capable of emulating the dynamics and behaviour of tube amps- some models don't stand up to the amps they seek to imitate at all. I LIKED the sound of the "blackface" model but it doesn't actually sound like a Fender.
    If you are into heavy riffing, you will LOVE the "Insane" model. Think of a Boss metal zone morphed with a typical Marshall hi gain sound, and there you go.

    The effects are quite good, not as good as the Flextone III I had owned previous but the POD Pro was of an older generation so it shows Line 6 is contantly improving their products. Playing in true stereo makes a real difference here though, the effects don't come alive nearly as much otherwise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The thing I like the most is its versatility, but the thing I hate the most is that out of all the things it does.... it doesn't do any of them stellar enough to warrant buying this unit just for those sounds. If you love the original Line 6 amp models like Insane then you could just buy the standalone stompbox and run it through a tube amp. You will probably enjoy the dynamics and not miss the "sterileness" of the POD Pro.

    I got this unit pretty cheap used, especially compared to my Flextone III amp I owned previous so I wasn't disapointed. It was far superior to multi-fx units I have owned before. I've just come to learn, not to put all my eggs in one basket. When you buy something expecting it to do everything you need, then you will likely be let down for end up settling for mediocre sounds in and of themselves just for the sake of versatility.
