I think most guitarists will agree that buying individual pedals is simply better than buying a multi-effects, preset pedal board. You can swap out different pedals you want, stack them better, change the order of them, etc.

That also gets expensive, really fast, especially if you don't know what you want.

So, this pedal is great for beginners because it gives them a chance to hear the different sounds, experiment with different tones, find what works, figure out (at least a little bit), what kind of amps they might want, great quality, the whole 9 yards.

But for those wanting and needing more customization, build your own pedal board.
The Good News:

First of all, I think this is a great, low-cost pedal board for people just beginning their electric guitar careers.

The advertisments are true, this pedal boasts a lot of features that are super-helpful for beginners to learn the different effects, different amps, experiment with volume swells and wah tones, etc.

The presets tend to be over-the-top, but that's an in-store marketing tactic, so you can always change them.

Also, if you get a MIDI-to-USB cable, you can download a free program and edit each preset/make your own unique sounds.

The Bad News:

At least in my experience, maybe it's my lack of understanding, but the compressor control adds a lot of hiss, and if you use just a little bit (1:4 ratio), be prepared to start turning down the volume quick.

The noise gate, in my opinion, is cheaply made. It simply starts limiting the high end frequencies, which is nice when you're not playing, but as soon as you hit a note, you start hearing a hiss. The higher the setting on the gate, the less of a hiss, but if you don't use the gate, you don't get any hiss anyway.

Maybe only high-end, rackmount noise gates truly remove noise...I don't know...blame it on my love for the ProTools plug-in X-Noise. No, I don't work for Avid or any of their subsidaries.
The Good News:

For doing light gigs, its pretty rugged. I've had this for at least two years and have been playing at church consistently every week, and it holds up quite nicely (including probably an excessive use of volume swells).

All the knobs and footswitches work wonderfully, and I've never had an issue with any random blips while playing. Good stuff.

The Great News:

When you save a preset, you don't have to worry about the knobs being tweaked during transportation, because it won't affect the sound. Accidentally tweak a knob while the board is on? Just go to another preset and switch back, and its fine.
The Good News:

You can get a lot of different sounds, mixing vintage tube amps with intense flanges/uni-vibe tones and semi-reverse delays, cranking the lows and the mids will cutting the treble to get weird ethereal sounds, and other stuff like that. There are a lot of possibilities, and several settings for each effect, including reverb decay and diffusion, tremolo speed and depth, and a tap-delay feature so you can set the tempo of it all. Built-in tuner works quite well also.

The Bad News:

You can't do multiple effects at once. 1 amp, 1 cabinet, 1 effect, 1 delay setting. Want a flange and tremolo effect at the same time? Sorry, not here. A drawback, indeed.

Like the tone of the wah in the middle, and want to do a volume swell? Nope, can't do that either.

Does a lot of stuff, and I know it is capable of producing some great tones. But, I can't find any, and I hate this thing! I can't even sell it! I bought a Digitech multi-effect pedal for $99 and love it. I'm just sayin!
I should give it 20 out of 10 for features as far as capabilities go, because it can do everything, however, it can't do multiple things at once, so 5. It is also WAY too complicated for me, and I have been playing for 18 years. These type of processors are supposed to be great for beginners so they can figure out what they like without buying 50 different pedals, but if it's not user-friendly enough for anyone except a sound engineer to dial in a useful tone, then that defeats the purpose. I tinkered with this thing for weeks, read the manual, sought online help, and had friends and other guitarists try to help, and this thing just is too hard to dial in. The presets that come in it are just silly and not usable. They must just be for showing off what it can do if you want to push the limits, but I have scrolled through more presets than I have the patience to try out, and found zero that suit my taste or anyone else's. If you want a multi-effect processor, get a Digitech. Same price or less, and it actually does do multiple effects at once, and I figured out how to dial it in without even reading the book.
It's about as solid as anything you buy these days, but most of it is plastic.
If you are good at programming or an effects whiz, then go for it. If you are average Joe geetar player, you will wind up smashing this with a sledge hammer out of frustration.

Comments about Line 6 Floor POD Plus Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I like how simple this unit is to operate.
Ok Reviews are subjective but I feel the Floor Pod Plus to be an excellent piece of gear. I've been playing for 52 years everything from Contemporary Christian to Jazz this unit nails it for me whatever I'm playing. I don't need, or use some of the things this unit can do, but there available if ever needed.
If I had one complaint it would be... Hmmm don't have any. I usually play in small places and the Floor Pod Plus works great running direct through the sound system or through my amp(s).

Comments about Line 6 Floor POD Plus Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

No doubt that for the money this is a great toy but it is really little more than that. I mainly use it with a set of headphones and just jam to tracks that can also be lined into this from laptop/ipod/whatever. Very nice for bedroom rockstars.

You can get nearly an infinite number of sounds with all the combinations of amps, effect, tone controls, etc. It is extremely versitile but that comes a the cost of ease of use- it is difficult to dial in all those perfect tones for every amp model you may want to try. While you can get some really cool sounds- for me at least 90% of the stuff on it is worthless. Like auto wah, the phaser options are not good, tron up? really? I'd rather have more choices of good, staple effects than some of the more out-there effects that this comes with. Some knobs have dual or tripple functions and I still don't know how to get some of them to work... Mash this button then while holding it press this button twice then turn knob all the way counter clockwise... etc... I mean really, who has the patience to learn and remember all that stuff?

Another confusing thing is that the knobs are static so if you create a setting for one pedal then change to another pedal the sounds will be different but then knobs still show the settings from the last pedal- IOW you can't "see" the settup of any single pedal when you switch to it. You can change it and play with it but you don't know what the setting were to start with.

Another difficulty is that there are three volume controls on this board- at at least one volume control on your gutiar and one on your amp so you have 5 or more volume controls to deal with to get your volume right. Also, it may sound good with one guitar or amp and totally awful with another- then you have to start tweaking again. Default volume settings are not the same accross all amp models either- what is a 10 on a Vox only be a 5 on a Marshall- so if you switch from one amp model to another, you also have to account for a potential volume difference that may not get fixed by the volume on your guitar. Channel volumes can vary dramatically also depending on how high you have the master volume set.

It can be useful in a gig situation though if you make sure you are always using the same gear with it and have your pedals dialed in solid before hand. It can potentially give me 124 custom channels (31 banks for the four pedals). I just make sure I have one bank solid and leave it there and swich between 4 channels that I have carefully honed in for the sound variety I want.

It can be hooked up to your computer and you can load and modify settings with software but you need connection cables to do that and it doesn't come with them (big downer).

All in all, it is a fun little pedal board and you can get a pretty good idea of how many different amps sound without hanging out at the music store every weekend.

It is a little cheaply built- there is no seal between the pedal buttons and the circuit board connected to them. I spilled coffee on it one day and it knocked out one of the pedals (wouldn't come on) even after taking apart and cleaning. After a while it started working again though.

Still a lot of fun but after playing with it for some time now, I have a greater appreciation for the simplicity of a few really good pedals with a good quality amp.

Comments about Line 6 Floor POD Plus Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

The worship band that I play for purchased this and right when we got it plugged in.... BRAND NEW out of the box..... the WAH/Volume pedal didn't work.. and we called the company and they said it was something in the hardware and that they have had a lot of calls concerning this issue...and the pedal in general is just way too complicated to work. i would recommend a Digitech over this any day. or individual pedals sound better to me than multi effects pedals. but this is definitely a NO.

    Comments about Line 6 Floor POD Plus Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    I absolutely love the Floor Pod Plus. I have a lot of different multi Effects Pedals and this is by far my most favorite. I have the Line 6 POD XT Live and it just lays around. I use this at all my gigs and at church. I love the multiple effect options and the look, but most important are the controls. I have yet to use such a simple multi effects pedal. Everything is controlled by knobs, there are only two buttons AND I LOVE THAT! If you're thinking of buying this, you won't regret it!

    Geez! I tried this and the Line 6 POD HD300 side-by-side. I chose the Line 6 Floor POD Plus.

    It's easy to use, gets useful sounds and is quite versatile.

    Comments about Line 6 Floor POD Plus Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    This thing is a complete waste of time. No wonder the price went down from 299 to 199. Save your money beginners. OD/DS sound horrible, is very difficult to program presets, bunch of useless delays, etc. Some kids bought one and brought to me to help them figure it out. I did not have the heart to tell them they bought junk. I have used multeffects way back from Boss ME8's, GT3's and now GT10, Digitech GNX and RP's. Don't get fooled by "insane" distortion. It is a mess. Line 6 should be ashamed.
