Line 6 POD X3Published on 03/06/11 at 19:41
DSP simulator, it "virtualize" the most known and played gear, It could be controllable by MIDI or other Line 6 product controller, PC or Mac thru software.
It is all digital.

UTILIZATION

The interface is very intuitive.
The great deal with it you can use it with earphones, plugged to a PA or a Power Amp. It could also be use in your Fx loop for delay reverb and modulation or as a preamp. You can also use it as a speaker emulator. It is like a swiss army knife. Could be used for recording also.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds is very good, it does the trick, it only fails when the system is clipping or when you don't hit the sweet spot in your settings, which can take sometimes.

The sounds is very good, it does the trick, it only fails when the system is clipping or when you don't hit the sweet spot in your settings, which can take sometimes.
It still remains "unreal" you won't get that organic overall 3D sound created by the air or any moving component, that the only issue with this.

OVERALL OPINION

Line 6 seems to work with Bogner for their amp. In the mean while this is a great tool, it sounds great. And this ton of settings and seriously you won't have anything else getting as close as the original.

Full of zm models and especially the Dual Tone, the main interest only see this new version.

We understand that they are not integrated XLR outputs not to compete against the X3 Live by nyat WHY THERE NO 48V PHANTOM ON INPUT XLR !!! It's still stupid for microphone input ...

The new look is nice, larger than a Pod 2.0.

At this price level a little higher we regret the connectors and knobs range and an LCD screen so sad ...

USE

A little confusing at first given the number of parameters, but the manual is very well and quickly become intuitive settings

SOUND QUALITY

USE

A little confusing at first given the number of parameters, but the manual is very well and quickly become intuitive settings

SOUND QUALITY

The Pod is legendary for 3 or 4 sounds and it is still valid for this version: Line6 Hi Gain, Vox AC30, Hiwatt and some other ... except this time you can use both at the same time and do a right mix / left at your convenience. It's just what we all been waiting for 10 years ... AND C IS DEADLY !!!

Some new kind Engl Powerball amp bluffing; simus pedal distortion, compressors, modulations are very successful for the time we are far from DL4, pity ...

Do not get any illusions:
- It is for the studio or the "small" live, to help out.
- A mesa rectify Twinverb left and right, it's fun two minutes, but it has no great interest ...
- The models for bass, electro-acoustic and singing are gadgets that can be used in certain situations.

If you do not fall into the trap of over-parameterization, you use the basics amps that 9 times out of 10 their premises by default, which is the one that sounds the best, you will inevitably find your sound with the added bonus of stereo unprecedented picture on this kind of product.

Note parametric equalizer which allows to tune the sound very professional manner.
The noise gate is Top.

NOTICE GLOBAL

Live in an amp or live on a sound, it will be hard to have a better sound with a simple all-tube Marshall and a few pedals transplanted with a dedicated mic.

In the studio for the big sound you have two options:

1-The material of John petrucci his sound engineer, studio budget and six months before you ...

2-A Pod X3 ............................................. .... and here and your pal Marshall and audiovisual BTS will pity ...

See my tip for use with VirtualBox for those who have concerns of recognition by the app.

USB, no midi ... shame it lacks

Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
No it is a bean ... lol

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?
No special config apart change the output level depending on use

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?
No special config apart change the output level depending on use

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Yes the software on the module I have not scratched too but it looks not so good ... and the buttons do not seem to be made for intensive use (I opened it, see below)

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Not read it, not come with (used)

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Yes, Line6 has a good reputation of the cot, even if we can not have a true sound, once configured to his taste he is doing very well :)

Which instruments do you use?
For my guitars I have a Vox ToneLab is, I use it for my bass in my homestudio
My guitarist has a version also live my bass player. The crankset is a plus for the scene.

Which ones do you prefer, you hate?
Amp simulation for my bass, I do not hate her ... if I find I will add here :)

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
Ben actually I just fix it but I know the live versions that have my bandmates.

What thing do you like most and least?
+ Good sound, lets himself in a corner of my homestudio, good for soft parametrer
- Lack of connection: XLR out as in the live version, Midi

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, I love my ToneLab SE for my guitar for its sound and simplicity for changing sounds live if need, that's okay for my bass in my homestudio

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Well ... I paid 20 € ... it was sold without a power supply (probably sold next ...) and HS state.
I bought a power supply to replace the x3 live my guitarist whose cable was a bit damaged, Recycling his own: once connected, it lights up and smokes a few seconds, ca reeks of burnt ...
I open it ... well ... I think Pègue POD has a drop of beer or something style: D
After a good cleaning, and saw the nose, it turns out that the switch that is causing the problem (it smells burnt, and the inside is charred) on these models, recurring problem. Well I fire him and put a wire to replace it ... have to unplug it to turn it off but at least more concern ... I reconnect ... no better: / It was listed as smoke, diodes have morflées also ... I give you the ref at RS if AC can help (I'll may be a tutorial)
https://fr.rs-online.com/web/p/diodes-of-recovery-and-schottky/7384787/

I have changed all of the sudden ... it comes with 25 anyway and that way it's done: D

Since nickel, everything works well :)

" Really"

Line 6 POD X3Published on 04/18/14 at 15:37
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Effects galore synth chorus, phaser, modulation of any kind
Connection jack, XLR and s.pdif
Are editable via pc but a bit chaotic as the Gearbox software have not been updated for x3
That said with a little sissy you come to understand!

UTILIZATION

The manual is very clear
Editing sounds is quite easy thanks to the joystick type button.

say that after some time it has quickly identified the story.
The most confusing is set if the FBV pedal included and use
to turn the effect eg Bender

SOUND QUALITY

Magic is a Pod Dual tone function to mix 2 channels
and thanks to this we get a very good sound.
Acoustic simulation is quite close by mixing 2 channels

Acoustic simulation is quite close by mixing 2 channels
Connected to a Gibson, Fender or Ibanez and LTD
Pod x3 this is nicely
For a good acoustic guitar simulation privilege has 5 positions
it gives a better rendering.

I regret midi inputs like POD XT, but it is the Marketing Line 6
as obliged to take a FBV MkII pedal or shortboard with RJ45 connectors

I'm not used my pedal Behringer FCB 1010 with POD X3 and damage? but hey!

OVERALL OPINION

I had the POD 2.0 and XT
I much prefer the latter therefore the X3, the sounds are better

Favorite feature is the dual tone
Even with an acoustic guitar it sounds great!
As input jack + microphone input and plays with 2 channels! too good!
If you feel like taking, there is the need for singing with such settings, megaphone, echo etc ...

Price or I bought more with the FBV Express MKII 100 euro all and not even a claw

I would say YES I made a deal and I would do the choice!
