    Line 6 PODPublished on 10/27/03 at 15:00
    I bought the POD about 4 years ago at Sam Ash. I paid about 300 dollars for the unit at the time.

    The sound quality and ease of use of the POD makes it the best cabinet simulator on the market. The presets are all great and allow for a true right out of the box use. The POD is also very flexable and allows the user to create thier own sounds. The optional software allows for connectivity to your PC. Allowing you to create your own unique sounds and transfer them back and forth from the POD to the PC.

    Without the optional foot pedal attachment the POD is extremly difficult to use in live performances. The odd kidney bean shape sometimes makes it difficult to find a place to put it.

    The POD is very well constructed and durable.

    Best recording tool for and home studio to have. The over all quality of the unit would have to be rated a 4.5 out of 5.

    I PICKED THIS UNIT UP TO HELP OUT WITH SOME SONGS I WANTED TO RECORD,I HADN'T PLAYED GUITAR TO ANY GREAT DEGREE FOR SOME YEARS BUT FOUND MYSELF KILLING HOURS AND BRAIN CELLS IN THE GARAGE TO THE POINT THAT I HEARD THOSE INEVITABLE WORDS "YOU LOVE THAT GADGET MORE THAN YOU LOVE ME".

    I REALLY LIKE IT FOR RECORDING MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE THE RANGE OF TONES ARE F***ING AMAZING . I PLAN TO GET A FLOOR BOARD AND TRY IT OUT GIGGING

    IT LOOKS LIKE S**T BUT SOUNDS LIKE ANGELS DROPPINGS

    THE SOUND QUALITY IS SUPER IN THE STUDIO THE CONSTRUCTION IS STURDY ENOUGH BUT I'M NOT SO SURE ABOUT DRAGGING IT AROUND BARS AND CLUBS

    Purchased at Long and Mquade/Ward Music North Vancouver BC Canada. I aquired the pod because I had just moved from a house into a small apartment. I knew I wouldn't have the room for all my gear plus I don't think playing with any sort of volume through your amp really endears you to your new neighbours. As far as cost goes, I bought the POD about a year ago and can't remember the exact price. It was aroun $475 CDN.

    I like absolutely everything about the POD. Right out of the box this thing is just tons of fun. The 16 amp models all have a very distinct and tasteful sound. I doubt very much that it matters to the average person whether or not the "Tweed Blues" setting sounds exactly li…

    Purchased at Long and Mquade/Ward Music North Vancouver BC Canada. I aquired the pod because I had just moved from a house into a small apartment. I knew I wouldn't have the room for all my gear plus I don't think playing with any sort of volume through your amp really endears you to your new neighbours. As far as cost goes, I bought the POD about a year ago and can't remember the exact price. It was aroun $475 CDN.

    I like absolutely everything about the POD. Right out of the box this thing is just tons of fun. The 16 amp models all have a very distinct and tasteful sound. I doubt very much that it matters to the average person whether or not the "Tweed Blues" setting sounds exactly like a vintage fender '59 Bassman being that most people could never afford one in the first place. At any rate, even if you are a real tone snob you can't help but enjoy the delicious flavours this thing puts out. The 16 effects settings plus the effects tweak knob are terrific as well. The effects tweak allows you total control over all the effects ranging from a tight compressor to a wide open flange. The super bright LED display is easy to read and the simple 1-10 style circular knobs allow for all kinds of tone adjustment.

    The only thing I don't particularily like is the colour choice on the lettering around the outside of the unit that tell you where the inputs and line/midi outs are. In this case dark grey on dark red is pretty much invisible in any kind of lighting. As for seeing it in low light...forget about it,it aint going to happen.

    The POD housing is very rugged. All metal,no plastic and super heavy. I haven't had occasion to kick or drop my POD yet, however, I'm sure it would be up to the test.

    All in all this is a great product for anyone who loves great guitar tones but doesn't have the space,time,and or money to mess around with ten different amps and two milk crates full of effects. I haven't even touched on all of the other cool functions and features of this devise but trust me, they are well worth the cost of this unit. Easy to use,great tones, low price,funky packaging, and what more can I say. This one is easily a 6 out 5. Cheers.

    interstate music for $329


    used pod in recording studio and loved it, lots of options to get a variety of guitar sounds and all very clean price.

    UTILIZATION

    - Great shape, but not easy stacking. It takes a little space when everything is connected (between a guitar, two outputs to sound card or amp, a headphones output, a one MIDI IN MIDI OUT): it looks like a big red spider pose on the desktop. The Pod Pro is more convenient to the ct but if you do not need sound numrique output or XLR Pod Pro, made more expensive.
    - Great, lots of buttons. But they often have two uses, the following configuration: Signalta them is insufficient. Fortunately the manual is well done (but you must then open the manual, and I'm the guitar, so no top ...)

    - The effects are correct, and few rglages and their combinations are limited

    The SoundDiver software (included with the Pod), while the door is mouse-haired prs. For effects, it is more flexible to use, if you're not rfractaire the field mouse.
    But for more flexibility, I think buying a quality multi-effects (rack!) To connect between my PC and Pod. I will use longer than the accumulation amp Pod part, that in which he excels.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The formulations amp suit me, but not knowing the three-quarters of the amps on offer, are they Fidler? For amps I know, has done.
    Purists will always find fault, but I think the Pod is enough for me (yet?).

    My use prfre: with SoundDiver software.
    I'm lazy: I rcupr its libraries on the net (and there for every taste). I take the sounds m'intressent, I put my sauce, I save them for recall when I please. We then have more opportunities than the patches of memory is available Pod: Obviously you must be a branch on a computer but as I do!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the Pod to play on the PC. My sound card is out of the chain back on Hi-Fi and I dfie anyone DCEL the absence of guitar amp. Finally, a good electric guitar sound on PC! And besides, it's Stereo!

    Why buy the Pod plutt one of its clones? For me it's the Internet community and its activity (or activism) that made the Difference: forums, libraries Sons offers, FAQ ...). So it's good especially if you have a computer.
    On a fawn gnrale, the computer is more useful to use the Pod at best, even if use in stand alone is that by which we begin all, and when m I trs cool.

    Finally the price. For a direct box, it's expensive. For the accumulation of all the amps on offer is a gift.
    If the price put you off again with the release of the Pod XT, will have the opportunity in the air!

    In the end, good little box.

    The amp models such as the rectification are not really top (thankfully seen the price of a mesa ..) and you can not get a convincing (a good offense) with a pod (and yet we tried a good time!)

    In short, we get a good Arussi better sound with direct drive (with a Shure SM58!) On the amp (correct) with the pod

    I confess I do not understand the excitement it causes gnral ...
    Finally, I have some friends that they use in a assos of Zique (they had a DJ sound system 400W), it is convenient for RPTES, but it is not pro!

    MODEL is the "bean" ... not terrible but it was mules must therefore believe that a like. For the rest, see the reviews in relation to this section. I would say that caratristiques techniques are sufficient.

    UTILIZATION

    One would be easier (combinations of pots and other pressing buttons simultanment example, a little annoying especially with a guitar in hand) but hey, if you're not too demanding and with the talents of balance. .. the accessories are supplments priori suited the situation although small ttons that can fix the POD on its support scrap them are not suitable at all!

    The manual is clear trs. The bank of patches on the Line 6 site has something for everyone.

    SOUND QUALITY

    So I use it in Home Studio: It's really good, well-trs. I sometimes have small problem blast or noise but I use a Telecaster guitar and it's a problem rpute to have some noise teachers ... just. So, is this one or is it another? I would opt more for the guitar.

    Ah! Yes I forgot, I play rock, pop or English. I read a notice saying that the "big" sounds n'taient not great, the I do not know what to say, I do not use them. By the sounds against Fender, Vox or equivalents are more delusion! I had an AC30, a Marshall and a Twin, POD trs really restores them well.

    Live is not the top or else be making sounds with the whole group and not in itself but as the guys I play with n'on not have the patience, we are content with what one has I pdalier FB4 with me and works well.

    I thought my life easier with the POD but in fact, live a good amp is when viel same well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year and a prs in any honntet I'm really happy trs. I have a prt friend compltement rfractaire anything that looks like a prs or indirectly rack effects, amp simulator or other such widgets and r RESULT did not expect: I brought him back the next morning and bought them a MIDI!
    The friend in question has been 20 years that it takes the head to save his guitars, he has in several local amps from Vox to Fender, Marshall, Peavey and other not to mention his 12 guitars (Fender, Gibson , etc.).. He had the rvlation. Thank you Line 6.

    We can always read conflicting opinions (that's what I give mine DCID), frankly for the price it's still good even trs. I had a SansAmpavant and, frankly, is when even something else.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are convincing BMOL with all of the same for the reverb. the rglage possibly a wha wha (not included) is only done by the software. The noise gate is qu'fficace! two chorus leave me a little skeptical cons! note: prsence of effects Leslie ... not bad ... the amp simulation is good, there comes the REALLY Ralite. Combinations with various pairs of speakers offers is great.
    By directly against a sound system ... I am very of the, however, is a small button GP allow this ... blah ... !

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year mostly in concert. His great strength is the ability to "carry" with you, whichever the place, this small lightweight object that contains your own sounds and your belongings.
    The quality price ratio seems to me fair enough, I would say even, inexpensive rraport by the quality. It is a good investment!

    The models are effective and really bienmais is true that the effects are somewhat limited (the flanger typed Line 6 is when even bad).
    Distortion level is nothing to complain about is the big bass in the figure to mom. Good for all styles.

    But the big least in my view is the clear sound ... There is a difference in level too high with the saturation is not very flat and saturated drive too fast, the 6 / 10 that's why.

    Equalization is not very precise. It's good to get off j'arête

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it (POD 2) for several months and I am really happy. I will redeem this thing without hesitation ... ... With the pedals of course. Despite some pitfalls of mentioned above is really the amp simulator (I tried a Yamaha DG and Vamp) and the cheap and more j'au of the nine pay € 200 on Pigalle. Line6 really put the packet.

    When we understand how it works the pod is a trs rvle right tool for the guitarist. No need to buy lots of amps to get the sound. It can be a little lacking in compressors, but it is quite sufficient.

    UTILIZATION

    Edit quite simple. What is more complex, is managing updates by noon. Good IDE, but a review of tantinnet ct practice (connections with the Mac and especially software). The manual is great.

    5 / 10: to live, the pod sounds really bad at high volume and the sound is really cold and no feeling on the guitar
    9 / 10: for the home studio and live recording or the default file are the qualitées live!

    Very good machine to catch live in the studio or at home and ease of publishing which is a bad preamp in concert!

    small personal note: line 6 could sell their products much cheaper, since they simulate the real tube amp with a soft and transistors, I think it is a theft!

    The headphone, I find it good .. on a tube amp is a dsastre, (even by fiddling dedicates the release, which supposedly removes the simulated virtual amp + hp), and a large table 24 tracks spirit, 2x500 amp and speakers Tanoy is laughable!. 505 zoom the small of my son's 40th dokaz is more practitioner. this pod makes us sound "Hooligan" a garage transistors, especially saturated despite the many menus ..

    SOUND QUALITY

    I admit that the clean sounds are quiet and practitioner. (Except the chorus and some reverb) but when we bought this trick is to mimic a marshall or an old twin, a mesa, and not for play Souchon or Sinatra, right?

    OVERALL OPINION

    The must is the thick book and document supplied with beans.! has read it, you in the best amps, pedals vintage, lamp heads of the earth .. black and white photos is supported .. Well no, I am not a customer .. A confession: my old vamp 2, and even zoom 200 gm have the big sound .. I think the pod is ax game headphone, blues-folk-song. but in this case they should sell less cher.je have absolutely no grain found deficits amps on this thing .. to be honest with you, it was available at local to repeat a Marsall plexi, a twin reverb 79, a jcm 800 head, peavey classic and a great body .. 100 2 when comparing the pod has these amps, which is supposed to and reproduction, (according to the book) was the impression of playing on a "cash-converters replica" of branded ... Finally, it is my opinion and I share ... but I know that this thing has its followers, so much the better .. indeed, it sold very well!

    It's an amp simulator and a digital multi-effects editable via PC noon. He has a bean-shaped well-known super boring to place in a studio and very reassuring when you put on an amp.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is simple when editing online.

    PC edition editor is very well done and allows editing in depth, the first version I had was, unfortunately, somewhat buggy.

    The printed manual is very clear.

    In terms of effects: I enjoyed the ping-pong delay and leslie, the rest is better to have a good rack of pedals.

    I used it with several guitars, bass and singing, and the finding was always the same: severe lack of dynamic exaggeration of the synthetic and low in distortion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it in 1999, he left and I sold it with no regrets after six months to buy a J-Station.

    I did everything to appreciate the Pod, with several amps to repeat, no amp in home studio, with different guitars, I have long said that I had something because of the wolf, though, the greatest use ( Line6 see site) is supposed to be awesome .. And no. While the sound is not inherently bad I've never liked either low volume (support / no top) or high volume (Atrocious).

    The quality / price was pretty average at the time, now € 90 for OCCAZ's true we have a pretty cool tool for the price of a single pedal.

    Given my experience I would wait six months and I bought the J-Station, where a tube preamp.

    Good intro

    Line 6 PODPublished on 06/23/11 at 21:48
    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. 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 …

    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. 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.

    The main difference in this one was that there wasn't a screen rather an electronic dial. They have since improved this version but the overall tone hasn't reallya changed. Everything as far as effects and models are manually shifted rather thn electronically on the screen.

    UTILIZATION

    The sound is great when it comes to the effects and modulation. The amps simulations are pretty terrible. If you are a natural amp distortion or even used to OD pedals then this is pretty pointless. That is the problem with digital amp simulators they never really match up the real thing. So you will be disappointed if you are looking for something to replace an amp or get a Rectifier sound with this unit going into your Fender Hot Rod.

    Easy set up ready....just flip the controls and your up and running. The manuals from Line 6 are always helpful. They do a very god job in there instructions showing you how to get the best sound of the gear you are using it with. One of the best in this factor.

    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 $1o0 in the classifieds 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!
