Seasoned musicians will recall the Tom Scholz' Rockman device from the 80s, which boasted the classic Boston guitar sound - but only had, like, 3 sounds, and direct connection to a mixing console resulted in a harsh sound. The PocketPOD takes the Rockman concept, increases capabilities exponentially, and with modeling algorithms that remove the harshness in use with mixing console or powered speaker. This device fills a niche for having Line6 "tones" in an extremely compact and lightweight package.
Line6 users will find this device to be consistent with other Line6 effects devices and amps in terms of amp modeling, decent array of features, intuitive controls, etc. The dual-function knobs make the most desirable controls available with just three knobs. I found it extremely handly to throw in my cable case, plug into a keyboard amp and be generally up to speed within minutes at a band rehearsal. I can see huge advantages for the traveling musician, where lightweight and compactness can matter.

Additionally, I was please that I could tweak and save settings on the spot, to, for instance make various sounds the same general loudness.

However, I downloaded the companion software and, even though I work with PCs for a living, was a little intimidated by the graphical display of the software and wordy manual.
Quality of assembly and workmanship is consistent with other mainstream musical instrument electronics. There appears to be a few milliseconds of processing delay.
At the street price, I had originally assigned of a value of "7", but Line6 makes the consumer buy an AC power supply - an item that probably would cost Line6 very little if purchased in bulk. Kind of short-sighted...lowering my rating to a "6".

Don't take this on the road. Guarenteed to break if you drop it, so I hate that. But, for home usage it's great. I sat here last night and ran through 2 hours of effects and had to take a break. I only scratched the surface and that was not online. Speaking of which: I can't get the user interface up an running with this Line 6 product, or any other. It's not my computer/computers. All Line 6 software is achaic and I'm not the only one that is disapointed with it. Everything they make is herky jerky. IE: when you have to reset your amp presets each time you go to play; that is just stupid. Yeah, you get used to it, after years of Line 6, it is way past due to fix ALL of the inhernt problems associated with their software. Also: one preset is quite, and next is so loud it feeds back, so there is NO consistancy on sound levels, so you'd have to re-tweek, then save those settings that you like the most. Sorry, but that's just stupid. Anyway: being plastic, I feel this should not have exceeded 75 OTD because I've been in the business for over 42 years and I know poorly built equipment when I see it/Touch it. Junky. 3 stars, period. NO MORE. I would recommend to a freind as a home unit ONLY! Good luck.

Comments about Line 6 Pocket POD Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

I have really enjoyed the Line 6 and the sounds that thing produces. My fingers are sore from playing so much lately, and my brain is dead from sleep deprivation. When it first came in, me and my 11-year old sat on the back porch fighting over the headphones for over an hour because we couldn't get enough of the cool effects and such good sound quality!

Comments about Line 6 Pocket POD Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

For the price, the materials sould be of better quality. Guarenteed to break, if dropped on a hard surface. As with all other Line 6 products, the downloadable software does not work and the manuals and the information is not written for the average novice. A#1 there is no interface. AT ALL! So I have no idea what it was I downloaded I worked on it for hours and gave up. Just like with my Line 6 AMPLIFi 150. It didn't work, I sent it back. A freind bought the same think. warned him about it and he had to send it back: BAD SOFTWARE. Line 6 is fine for general usasge, but do not rely on thire sorftware. Good luck. I just bought one of thire combo amps, if that has more inherent problems,that too will be returned to MF and I willnever buy any Line 6 again. Nightmare software. Also, some presets are soft and perfect, but others are super load and break up badly. Enough...

      Comments about Line 6 Pocket POD Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

      I started traveling for work and would not give up playing. After working hard to get a small guitar that really worked, I needed an amp. Bought the pod and was stunned by the sound quality. I started to bring it to band practice too. More often I play during layovers and in hotel rooms. I have even played it on planes! I am writing three years later after it finally gave up and played its last lick. Given where and how I travel, I did not expect it to last a year. I am at this page because I am buying a new one.

                  Comments about Line 6 Pocket POD Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

                  Was looking for a very compact, quality sounding multi-effect processor that I could use with headphones so I could practice anywhere, without interfering with other family members. This little unit was perfect. It uses 4AAA bat's (of course you can use an external power supply (not included)), has a beltclip that holds to a guitar strap, and sounds very nice. The presets offer many variations of every flavor of music tone that I care to play, blues, classic rock, metal, twang, its got it. Just the right amount flange, delay, reverb, gain ,etc... but you can tweak the individual effect levels if you like, to make it more to your liking. In that regard, the presets can be used sort of like starting points, and saved user defined.

                  The preset names are very representative of what the sound is, so easy to remember the ones you like. Plus you can set user defined presets, etc...

                  Very powerful little unit. I can't imagine anyone not thinking it a real asset after using it. And for the price, a real value as well.

                  An added feature is the multitrack recording software, which I have not used yet, so cannot comment further.
