    My experience has been good w/the PODxt Bass modeler, I like it, Sound Engineers like it (both recording & live) and my band likes it. The way I have it setup doesn't kill the true organic wood tone of my Bass which is very important to me and perhaps a lot of Bass players out there who love their Basses. It makes cheap Basses sound good and expensive Basses sound great. I use it as a sole pre-amp connected to a QSC 850 watt power amp feeding a Mesa 4x10 speaker cabinet and I must say that I don't need more, clear responsive tone live, enough presets for any situation. Dedicate some time when you first acquire it to learn how to use it and then is easy to make it sound great in different gig settings, like an open venue live show, a bar, a recording studio, etc. completely customizable. It has a cool tuner that can be muted or not, which comes quite handy when you wanna look professional while tuning or switching instruments live. A model & a D.I. balanced inch outputs that make it easier for live sound-guys, one for your amp and one to the mixer. I'd be happier if it had a metronome with adjustable volume to use while practicing, but other than that I'm pretty satisfied w/it so I strongly recommend it to a serious musician!

    I either owned or used most of the stuff similar to BASS POD xt and I'm writing something I wish I read before I bought it.LIVEI tried plugging it into several diffent amps and PAs. If you want to use it live my advise is buy a good amp forget Bass POD. If you have to buy it plug it into a PA or a mono monitor speaker it will sound better but still dull. RECORDING. Bass POD xt is based on gearbox amp modelling which means that all Line 6 products sound the same. I DID try every line 6 product.It's better that any digitech or zoom but it's a long way away from studio quality. It's satisfactory for recording your first demo otherwise forget it.If you're into synth and funky octaver then BASS POD is really cool. Make sure you switch off amp modeling on this unit, though.

    Best bass processor out there

    By dualmalaise

    from Downey, CA

    When I bought this about 2 years ago, I realized that I didn't need any other effects so I pawned some old stuff I had. Ive been using this to record bass as well as guitar stuff. There are so many feature and options on this thing that I could never get tired of playing with it. The sound quality is stellar, the unit is also built like a tank.The presets sound amazing, but you have so much headroom to tweak every frequency. I also like how there is a model and direct output. It eliminates the need for a direct box making recording very easy.

    Great tool for folks who want great bass tones

    By SuperComp

    from Washington, DC

    I'm primarily a guitar player, but have a small home studio and with a Fender Precision bass at my disposal. I have struggled with getting decent bass tones on tape and find this thing indispensable. I can plug in and audition several tones in a matter of seconds, and I love the "Compress" knob. The tweakability is amazing. I don't use too many of the on-board effects, but don't mind having them.Tonally, it's never going to completely replace a good amp and mic, but I think the tones are great and very expressive and record fantastically. This a great-sounding, very well thought-out unit. Highly recommended.

    not all that

    By Swift

    from Housatonic, MA

    I've been fiddling with one of these for a couple days and I'm not that impressed. Where to start...It has a lot going on so I gave it a 9 for features but it's kind of hard to use for instance twisting knobs from .10 to 1000.00. Three out of four compressors are useless, the effects are kind of lame digital effects. The models are pretty good but somehow two dimensional. They obscure the tone of my bass in a way that usually a bad amp does. A real amp is more flexible and unique sounding. It does deliver some nice overdrive, the tube screamer stomp box and the Marshal Major definitely get "that sound." The synth sounds are truly sad and the tracking sucks. I don't know why it has so many types of reverb. All in all it has only a couple features to recommend it and many more to disappoint. I've tried out another modeler/multi effect for 1/3 the price that sounds just as good if not better.

    Incredible!

    By bassman06-al5Wh

    from colorado

    This little modeler has just about every effect and amp setting you could ever want! It can make almost any bass or amp setup sound professional! The only (small) complaint I have about it is that it is not as easy to use as some other modelers, but don't let that stop you from buying it. It's amazing, and well worth the price.

    I'm a believer

    By Willy4String

    from Ft. Walton Beach, FL

    I come from the old school theory of bass... plug 'n' play. I've always just plugged in my bass straight into the head and tweaked the tone from there. If it didn't sound right, tough love, try harder. I recently got the Bass Pod (not the XT) based on a recommendation from my singer, who was a former bass player. I plugged it in and after my singer and I sat down and tweaked it for a while, got amazing tone out of my rig. It actually cleaned up the tone from my head's preamp! Later I upgraded to an Ampeg SVT-3 PRO, and the POD makes it sound ungodly good! Kudos to Line 6 for making an effects processor worth owning!

    deserves the hype

    By groverdoc

    from Bronx, NY

    Fantastic sound/amp models. Ability to "customize" to the exact sound you want is priceless. Even if you are a purist about bass tone, you will get sounds out of this you never could have dreamed of. Most of the effects and stomp models are studio quality. You won't need anything else for your bass recording needs.

    best gift I ever got :-)

    By bassmaneastcoast

    from Eastern Shore, MD.

    I got the bass podxt for xmas in 2003... I still love it. I use it for recording, practicing and for live stage use. It has a built in crossover option which I use live all the time... The amount of tweakability is incredible. I now run the high end straight into the board with a trs cable and run 70hz and below to a sub. Recording with the digital usb connection is the cleanest sound I have ever gotten on my computer. For some of my more jam oriented shindigs, I use a midi foot controller to call up any channel or parameter on the fly. If you have been playing for more than 15 years you will want this thing in your toolbox of gear. No doubt about it.

    Throw everything else away

    By chops-LgjqM

    from Newark, DE

    this thing rocks. It has so many effects and options, you could waste away a few days just playing around. Whats best of all in this rig is that the effects are actually useful. Of course, some are a bit out there, but for the most part, it's all ready to record. I did not like the distortion models, so if you like disto id suggest buying a good pedal you like. Also, im not a big fan of auto wah, so i use my wah pedal for wah. Other than that, this thing kicks a**, and is guaranteed to give you loads of good times just playing around.
