I have a well furnished project studio and was pretty excited about adding this to the arsenal. I have the older Flextone II HD (but there is very little relation to this technology)so I am not new to the modeling per se.>The unit is very well built, professional, and seems very solid and functional software wise. The control layout is logical, and easy to learn. Snap!>Do what I did: download 'n pre-read the manual, get on the website and schmooze thru it. It pays off. I was up and running inside of 10 mins.>First was go into manual mode and check the unit for good pre-amp functions = excellent. I really like the sound quality and it functions quite well as a straight preamp with all the bells and whistles to DI, and jump into the virtual world with all the midi, clocking, usb, spdif/Aes/EBU functions. I love that!>After 30 mins I am completely convinced that I don't want to play a guitar thru an amp without it. The amp sims are pretty good. They don't give you the 'full' range on the models but rather a 'selection' of the sound they are named for that is most famous. Set your amps for as flat an EQ as possible to see. It is like dialing in a kalaidiscope of possibilities. It was surprising to hear an uncanny JC-120 sound coming from my Marshall tube head for instance. Very, very recognizable, and you don't have to crank your heads to get a good tone anymore.>On cheap, small practice amps, this thing really shines. It makes my small practice Marshall MG sound good (well almost).>About 10 hours into it I have covered about everything there is now and feel pretty competent to program and tweak live even. Tweak all you want. The possibilites are pretty much endless, and the user forum is really great to trade tones too. Speaking of that; the software is really a no-brainer and is really easy to use. There is almost no learning code involved to get up on that provided the user has basic computer skills. I suspect most users will utilize the box thru this GUI. The front panel controls are not as intuitive but still pretty easy to pick-up with a bit of study in short order.>I knock down the value a bit due to the hefty price. It is really a good value for what (all) it does. You will really want to get a foot controller for it. That's pretty much an obligation, and that is really obscenly priced too.>Overall-an excellent get. I would have to recommend it. I say to you beg, borrow, or steal (Well maybe that's going too far) to get one any way you can.

I am so sad to be writing this review. I bought the podxt pro and shortboard last week and was more exited about it than about any piece of gear I've bought. I play for a living and go from flamenco guitar to greek bouzouki to electric guitar. And this unit had everything. I could run everything through it. I spent the week programing and tweeking. Got all the levels set, amp models, effects blah, blah, blah. Did this all on a PA at home so I would know what it would do. I was totally happy with the sounds. Played at a theater this Saturday(used left and right analog xlr outs straight to PA)and walked right into the gates of hell. My levels went up and down constantly, not between channels, but even on the same ones. I would click on a preset that I spent hours on and had triple checked and it was giving me effects and verbs I never programmed. Crazy flange on my solo channels and a totally different verb on my flamenco channel. More verb than signal. I couldn't hear ****. My sound man was freaking. I was freaking(and I've been around, I can deal with about anything on stage). I'm on stage for a sit down theater show looking like a punk ass 15 year old with new gear and not a clue. So here is my point. I can't even consider trying to find out what is wrong with it, because I play for a living. It doesn't matter what caused it, I can never trust it again. So I have to send back the unit that I thought was the gear of my dreams. I am so bummed. I can't imagine ever buying a piece of gear from this company again.

Versitile !!!!!

By foghat1987

from NY

I love this Line 6 Pod xt pro. So many sounds. Even some of the stock patches sound good. I play anything from hendrix to Killswitch and this can do it. It is not Dead Acurate. But for the plethera of sounds. Its close enough. The long board foot pedal is a must have for the stage. Probably 65% of the effects are awesome and totally useable. In my opinion it is the "best" non-tube digital sound bank to have at your disposal !!! Try it.


Great for Recording, but NOT Great Live

By Death By Fan

from New York City, NY

If you're a guitarist looking for a device that will streamline your HOME RECORDING set up, this is an excellent place to start. Line 6 is truly at the forefront of modeling technology. While the drive/distortion effects are probably the weakest of the algorithms available, the amp/speaker simulation and other modeled effects are dead on. I own a vintage 1965 Vox AC-30TB and use the modeled over-driven 1963 Vox AC-30TB patch on the unit through my old amp! The modeled TS-9 is also a dead-ringer for the real thing. The vintage delays and other effects are also spectacular.Here's the rub though--it's limitations come through in LIVE applications. For one thing, the 4 effect block maximum seems strangely limited given the price point (e.g., the Boss GT-Pro which is similarly priced allows up to 10 or more effects at a time). Also, the latency between patch changes is simply unacceptable for a unit this advanced...and the failure for trail-offs on delays and reverbs between patch changes is also unacceptable. My last beef is why Line 6 didn't include a digital deal with mod feature (need to preserve a market for the DL-4?).On the balance, it's a great sounding unit, but not the greatest device to have with you on stage.


Best piece of gear I've owned.

By MalcomBliss

Ive been using one of these for the past 2 or so years. I've installed the model packs. Great deal! Previously I have owned a 5150, Rocktron voodoo valve, Digitech 2120 (junk), Boss GX700, Berhinger V-Amp, Vox Tonelab and a few other amps and preamps I have forgotten. This thing SLAYS!!I run it into a Marshall EL34 50/50 tube power amp then into a GenzBenz Gflex 2x12 cab.I have an unlimited array of GREAT tones and effects at my disposal. I know a lot of that is due to the tube poweramp. I love tubes and how they respond/sound live. You cant get away from that. I love real amps, dont get me wrong, but judge this thing with your EARS not your prejudices. I can't take 8 amp heads and 24 pedals to a gig, but I can with this thing. It sounds great and is Hella versatile. What more do you need? In the studio the re-amping feature is so easy, and truth be told really fun to play around with. You can create sick textures and complex tones using this feature. I NEED to get a second one in my rack so I can recreate this live.


All In One Preamp for the Pos

By Kkpt3QsiE

from Green Bay, WI

This preamp contains several models that accurately reproduce classic amp tones to the T. This alone makes it worth the price. The IO options are complete and flexible. The onboard effects are OK, however the stomp boxes are somewhat limited. Well worth the price for the excellent tone.

Line 6 has really done it with this one. I was instantly a better sounding guitarist witch made me a better player also. At first I was afraid it would be just another digital effect but man was I suprised. Any amp can sound great with the pod xt pro as a pre amp. Line 6 Thank you for making my recordings and live playing so much easier to sound great.


Love it!

OK History been playing 20 years since I was 12 years old. OK owned a few tube amps, Marshal JCM 800, 5150, Fender Princeton and some solid state ones. OK This thing will sound only as good as what your plugging into. I run into a BBE sonic maximizer then into carvin power amp and then into a cab with celestion vintage 30's. Before I Bought the model packs I was somewhat impressed with it but seemed little week on the distortions could quite get that crunch, but I then bought the model packs and my god it has crunchy distortions you can only dream of. My take is its not the same as a tube amp its better if you buy the model packs and have the right setup to go with it. And for recording its the way. My Only complaint is they should include those model packs least those high gain amps standard and it could be a little more affordable but it is well built. I have the FBV floorboard love it dont need no damn pettals and mess of cables. Comparison to VAMP Pro the POD is much better more features. I have a VAMP Pro too its good if your on a budget there is however some type of Nasaly undertone to it on leads not on chords but you dont hear it at first but its there still pretty damn good unit for price but POD is better. POD XT also you can name your presets and the floor boards are nice. If Price is an issue then buy the Behringer but if price is not an issue i would get the POD Pro and you still might consider it if your a perfectionist.

This product is great! It is easy to use and the online support of Line 6 is awesome. It has all the amps that you would ever need and the quality of sound is also very very good. I have not got the FX junkie yet, but even without it it is very versatile and worth the money. Speaking of money... I do think that the price could be lowed a bit. But it has all the ins and outs that you would ever need in a studio setup and is the king of studio racks for guitars. Just make sure you have a good amp, or buy one along with this. I recomend some kind of speaker amp and not pre-amps. Somethng the the Tech 21 PW 60 or the Atomic Reactor.Xt Pro is the Pro of guitar sound!


Awesome tool for both recording and live


from Kenton, Ohio

Great toy for recording, as well as live. Many impressive features, such as the "re-amping" option, which allows you to go back and change your tone from the slightest little tweak of some reverb or choosing a completely whole new tone AFTER you have already recorded. This feature is handy when you realize that theres too much delay on your once-in-a-lifetime recording performance..not a problem at all: just re-amp the recording back into your POD and change the tone you want. It's as easy as 123. Very well constructed: built like a rock. Wonderful arsenal of great sounding effects and amp models, as well as every input and output that you could ever ask for or need. I use it my home studio and it works wonders, and just as well live, using it with a power amp utilizing the amp models and everything, or just using the effects loop for bypassing the preamp and just using it as an effects processor with an already existing guitar amp. I HIGHLY suggest buying one of the floorboards for it if you are planning on using it live, but really no need for it when recording. If you are planning on using it MOSTLY live, I would save up some more cash and go for the Line6 Vetta II. It's pretty mucht the PODxt pro already in a guitar amp, plus it has updated presets. I rated the Value a little low just for the reasoning of the high price of it. It costs a pretty penny but I personally think its worth every cent. Buy the Line6 PODxt Pro - you WONT regret it.


Well maybe I am just being picky.

By Kasper

from Liverpool, UK

I have had this rack unit for a little over a year now, and basically bought it because I was sick of my GT8 board. At first I really liked it, but after a while its a little... uhm... well six bricks short of a full load.I used it at first for recording, and its ok. But its still amp modelling. If you are looking to save money, and just want emulations of all the great amps, then this is a good place to start. It will never sound like a mesa boogie or a marshall though.Lately I have been hooking it up to my Mesa Boogie Recording Rectifier, and then to the power amp, and out. I get rid of the preamp in it, and then just use its effects. Not utterly impressed though. If you want good effects, then I would reccomend a TC Electronics G Major. Less popular that the line 6, but higher quality.


tone heaven

By Flying V King

from kenosha wi
