*Official Pod/XT/Live F.A.Q/Support Thread*

This thread is here to reduce the clutter caused by the 15 Pod threads made each day. Please read this before making a Pod related thread.
If you have any questions please post them here, and I or hopefully any other helpful pod users will get back to you.

F.A.Q

Q.) What’s the difference between the Pod 2.0, XT and the Live?
A.) The differences between the 2.0 and the XT are:
* Looks
* Price
* Sound
* Hardware/software/support

The Pod 2.0 is the earlier version of the XT so it pretty much doesn’t sound the same, have as many features (such as USB recording, model packs) and cost’s a lot less.
Some people say the 2.0 sounds better, some people say the XT is better. It all comes down to opinion so why not demo each of the units side by side to see which ones better for you?

The main difference between the XT and the Live is that the Pod XT Live has the same hardware as the normal XT bean but it is a floor unit including wah/volume pedals etc. It also comes included with one of the 3 model packs (FX Junkie)

Q.) Dear ernz i so dum i dun no wot a PodXT even is, wot is it plz help mah?
A.) Pod XT is a amp modeler, FX unit, Direct recording facilty.
It can be used to record guitar, bass and even vocals. Can be used with or without an amplifier and can be easily upgraded.

Q.) Can I record/play my bass through a guitar Pod?
A.) Did you even read the thread n00b. Yes you can but dont expect the best tone ever (they sell a seperate Bass PodXT for this). For best results I use the J-Bass preset included in the GuitarPort software.

Q.) Which is better, Pod 2.0, XT, XT Live, V-amp or Tonelab?
A.) This all comes down to preference so I will give you my opinion as I have tried them all

*Warning: This is my opinion don’t try to argue with it*
PodXT>Tonelab>Pod 2.0>V-amp

I find the Pod XT to be the leader mainly because of great recording compatibility, tone, versatility and mass of features like:
USB, guitarport/line6edit/monkey software, Model pack upgrades, etc.
Pod XT excels in the high gain area of tone and provides some nice clean tones as well. Overall the XT is the best all-rounder IMO.

Tonelab excels at producing warmer mid-gain style tones and accurately emulates smooth tube breakup sounds. It produces nice sounding cleans as well and can also produce some nice high gain tones if needed.

Pod 2.0 is the earlier version of the XT so IMO it doesn’t sound good but is great value for money if your on a budget.

V-amp sounds terrible IMO but I have heard some decent tones from it. It is very cheap so you get what you pay for I guess. Great for MXicans on a budget

Q.) What programs can I use to edit/save tones, update things, etc?
A.) The main programs used to edit/swap/save tones are GuitarPort and Line 6 Edit. IMO Line 6 edit is better designed and easier to use, but you can download both from: http://www.line6.com/software/ and see which one you prefer.

The updater tool is called Line 6 Monkey and can be used to update firmware, backup tone bundles, purchase model packs, etc. Can be found at: http://www.line6.com/software/

Q.) I downloaded some tones and they sound crap
A.) Well that’s not really a question is it? Some tones will not sound the same because of the different guitar/pickup combinations used by others. Try adjusting the bass/treble/mids where appropriate to suit your guitar/pickups

Q.) I just got my XT, what should I do first?
A.) The first thing I recommend is to download GuitarPort, Line6Edit and Monkey software from the site listed above. Then install the USB drivers, update the firmware and anything else that needs updating via the Monkey.

Q.) Some dude said there was a 4 band Parametric EQ. WTF is the EQ?
A.) Chill out dude you need to update your XT to the newest firmware via the Monkey software which will add the 4 band EQ as well as some new cabs and stuff. If you don’t like the changes made you can always roll it back to the earlier version of firmware.

Q.) I just got my XT and it sounds crap
A.) This is either because you are incompetent, haven’t messed around with it enough or have the wrong settings on.
Make sure if you are playing through an amp you have your Destination (“What are you Connecting To”) settings switched from Direct to 4x12, 2x12 or whatever sounds good for you. Oh yeah don’t expect it to sound godlike without messing around with it first.

Q.) Will the Pod sound good through an amp?
A.) Yes it should sound good depending on your setup.
Most amps/cabs will color your sound so it wont sound exactly the same as playing direct to your computer. A keyboard amp or P.A or any other type of speaker/amp that doesn’t color your sound (Like the Atomic Amps: http://www.atomicamps.com/ )
will give you better tone however.

Also try messing with “Dest” settings as listed in the above question

ihavesoldout
10-02-2005, 10:16 PM
Q.) How does the Pod work in combination/in front of my amp?
It works just like a normal pedal by plugging into the front of your amp or into the fx loop, etc.

Q.) Why does my pod sound fizzy all of a sudden?
A.) Many reasons. Are you set to direct? Check your Destination settings are appropriate (remember, plugging in headphones sets your “Dest” settings to Direct.)
Maybe try lowering the gain, turning the Pod off and on again.

Q.) I can't hear what im playing when I'm recording through USB
A.) Because your Pod is now selected as your soundcard you have to monitor it throught the headphones jack, you can either plug a set of headphones in there and listen to what you are playing or you can buy one of those 1/4 -> 1/8 adapters and plug your speakers directly into that then into the headphone jack.

Q.) Can I use other pedals in front of my Pod?
A.) Yes, you can place them in front in the signal chain

Q.) Does the Pod come with recording software?
A.) No. You can use software like Cubase SX, Cool Edit, etc. to record with. Try searching Google for these programs. (*Hint* most of these can be acquired “illegally” from a P2P source such as BearShare or Kazza*)

Q.) What is the best recording software to use?
A.) IMO Cubase SX is complicated but one of the best out there.

Q.) How do I record?
A.) If recording through USB make sure your drivers for your Pod are installed. Open your recording program and select your Pod as your recording device. Select the Pod Asio driver.

Q.) Is everything needed for recording included with the pod?
A.) The USB cable is included but you still need to download the newest firmware/drivers etc. and you also need a recording program.

If recording via Line in just select Line-in as your recording port under your recording program.

Q.) Can I bypass the PodXT's Cab and Amp simultations?
A.) Yes you can turn off the Cab and Amp sims and use it for just effects if you wish.

Q.) What’s that crackling popping noise whilst USB recording?
A.) The crackle/pop is caused by latency. Your computer is most likely having trouble keeping up.
It could be the CPU, Memory, Bus speed, Driver, etc. You can upgrade the driver pretty easily (using Line6 Monkey). It seems to be people with AMD processors that have the most problems
If all else fails try using Line In

Q.) Where can I download tones?
A.) From these places:
http://www.customtone.com
http://metallabs.com/hotplate/viewforum.php?f=28
http://line6.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi
http://philbert.lh.net/
http://www.instituteofnoise.com/

Q.) What are model packs? How much do they cost?
A.) Model packs are additional amps/cabs/FX that can be added to your Pod to increase its versatility and improve the sounds achievable.
Model packs cost $50 each or $100 for all 3. They don’t take too long to install.

Q.) Whats the best amp to use with my Pod for live situations?
A.) Atomic Amps:
http://www.atomicamps.com/
They even come with a template to house your modeler.

Q.) Any recording tips?
A.) Double track your rhythm tracks by playing and recording the rhythms twice and panning one track left and one track right to achieve that “Huge sound”
Try to use lower amounts of gain when recording. Remember double tracking only needs half the normal gain, otherwise your recording will become muddy and lose clarity.
Add reverb/delay to your solo with plug-ins or onboard FX.

Q.) Can I get the model packs for free?
A.) No. And no you cannot use your friends model packs and you cannot hack/download them for free so don’t ask

Q.) Which artists use Pod’s?
A.) Michael Romeo of Symphony X, Fredrik Thordendal of Meshuggah as well as many others.

Q.) Where can I get the patches made by Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah)?
A.) I uploaded them here for you: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EHWUEW1F

Q.) Got any other good high gain tones?
A.) You want everything for nothing don’t you bitch?
Here are some more: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=9FGF5M9F

Q.) Will a Pod sound good through the clean channel on my 30 watt tube combo/Mesa/5150/Recto/etc?
Like I said before it all depends on the amp/cab and how it colors the sound. Some combinations may sound good, some may be terrible its all up to you testing it out.

Q.) Where can I hear samples of the Pod in action?
A.) Check out these places:

Oh and for future reference that pedal which you move up and down to control things (which I think you referred to as the "volume/wah pedal") is known as an expression pedal, I think.

Not sure if it's been said, but The Atomic Amps' Reactor 112 does colour the sound. It supposedly removes the 'digital-ness' of the modeller you're using.

do they sell an amp specifically advertised as made for the pod(xt)? Is that what the Atomic is? I know about the little one that fits the pod right in it, but are there any other amps?

ihavesoldout
10-03-2005, 01:39 AM
Yer the Atomic is made especially for modellers. The link to the site is on the first page. Supposedly Keyboard amps and P.A's are good for the Pod because of the colour-less sound you get outta them.

It says on the site
"...it will not color or equalize the signal coming from your modeler. However
it does de-digitize the signal to create that coveted analog sound."
So technically it doesnt really color the sound.

Yo Mike.

I do agree that the POD and Tonelab is better then the V-amp, but imo you make the vamp sound bad. I have a V-amp and I'm pretty happy with it considering I'm 15 and on an extremely tight budget it was exactly what I needed. It comes with computer programs to edit your tone etc so it's not like the tones are bad, I quite like some of them.

I'm going to do some recording soon once my exams and stuff are over so like 3-4 weeks. You'll get a good idea of the V-amp then I guess.

Anyway Mike, great job.

Seriously, you might think you need to try really hard for these subjects, but really, if you think about it, your 1+2s don't count towards your ENTER at all. Try really hard for your 3+4s, but 1+2s literally don't mean anything as long as you pass the subject. And passing isn't exactly the hardest of things.

Yes, the guitar port software is for editing you patches with a graphic interface. Line 6 edit does this as well.

Rifftracker is the recording software that Line 6 has.

cubase is for recording your music. guitarport software isn't. Rifftracker is something I havent used but I would be extremely suprised if rifftracker had any advantages over cubase. Guitarport lets you edit your XT so you dont have to have your Live up on the desk squinting at the small lcd screen. I say guitarport is better, but you can DL it for free and find out for yourself.

GuitarPort and Line6Edit are both GUI's that allow you to edit your tones. Some people like GuitarPort some people like Line6Edit. Experiment with both to see which ones fits your liking.

Yeah, I would suggest trying out Guitar port as well, just to see which one you like better. Guitar port if a bit more graphic based than Line 6 edit. They both have the same features though.

V-amp wether its the Pro or the V-amp 2 or whatever will not give the same kinda tone as a Pod. If you are too poor i reccomend the Pod2.0 but if you wanna spend even less money get the V-amp then.

I didn't have much time to fool around with it, but I really love it so far, and can't wait till I use it for some recording with the band. Still figuring out Cubase SX, but once you learn the basics the rest is much easier to grasp.

I play a lot of metal and high gain stuff, but I don't have the Metal shop pack just yet, so is there any nice high gain tones already on the POD? Or should I try downloading one. Also, is the metal shop pack really that good? I've heard only good things about it, so in that case if they are true I will probably buy it.

although i recommend getting aquainted with all the models yourself (it helps in the long run to know what the Pod's got), i'm bored so i'll tell you what they are...

Line 6 Spinal Puppet
Line 6 Insane
Line 6 Chemical X
1990 Brit J-800
2001 Treadplate Dual
1985 Cali Crunch
1993 Solo 100 Head
Line 6 Agro
Line 6 Lunatic
Line 6 Treadplate

they are in order as they appear in your amp pulldown menu...they are other amps like the "p.l.e.x.i.s" can get pretty heavy with the gain, but they aren't mainly for high gain...the ones i listed are...

this depends on what you want...if you want mainly the Pod's tone coming through your amp then you plug the Pod's output into yout amp's "FX return"...

if you want to just use your Pod as a multifx pedal (like a GNX-type pedal) then you can either plug it into your FX loop (plug guitar into amp's input...then plug FX send into Pod's input and Pod's output into amp's FX return)...or you can plug the guitar into the Pod's input and the Pod's output into the amp's input...

i hope i explained it simple enough, just try it out yourself and see what you prefer...

Okay sounds good thanks.

Now another question to Cubase users...

I can get Cubase SX 3 to record sound from the POD, but every time I want to hear what I've recorded I have to set the VST back to my soundcard in Device Setup, so that whenever I want to record, I have to choose POD XTL ASIO and then when I want to hear it I have to choose my sound card which is SoundBlaster Audigy 2.

So how can I tell Cubase to use my soundcard for output and my PODXTL for input and where do I have to go for this?

Thanks a ton I'd really appreciate help on this :D

ihavesoldout
10-08-2005, 06:49 PM
Choosing the Pod ASIO driver IS setting the Pod as your soundcard. The problem is that you have to have your headphones/speakers plugged into the headphone jack of your Pod to hear anything. I rectify this by plugging a lead from the "headphone out" into my speakers so I can hear as I record.

Oh yeah you cant have two ASIO drivers running at once which means you cant have your soundcard and xt operating at the same time or they will clash.

Ahh that sucks... I have 6.1 surround... so do I have to buy some sort of adapter that allows my speakers to be converted into a single jack that fits into the POD? Do they even sell that?

It seems to happen once in a while if I switch the ASIO driver a lot, cause I was switching back and forth to the POD and the soundcard a lot, so yeah it's definitely something with the ASIO drivers.

All the packs are worth the purchase everyone should get the $100 for all 3 deal. The square chorus in the fx pack is the best chorus in the whole POD IMO.

Alright, YET ANOTHER question :lol:

When I play the PODXT through my amp, it sounds really nice and everything, but when I record through the USB onto the computer, it sounds kinda digital and not as nice as it did through the amp, anyone got any good tweaking points on how to fix this? I know it can sound good I've heard countless samples, it just seems mine sounds sorta digital...

this may have to do with the fact that IT IS DIGITAL!!! :D you could always plug the PodXT into your amp and then mic your amp, but that gets rid of the Pod's easy recording scheme...the only way to easily record with the Pod is to plug it directly into the computer (either with the line in or usb)...just tweak the settings until it sounds good...

You can try double tracking it. I'm not sure about Cubase, I use Tracktion, and all you do is select the clip that you wish to double track, copy it, select the next track and paste it.

10-10-2005, 11:54 AM

usually that is how its done for pro recordings...one guy will usually record the same track 2-3 times usually with 2-3 different guitars and amps...that way when they mix them together they get a mixture of different audio characteristics...

so lets say they record first with a Gibson LP for a bassy, warm sound, then a Fender Strat for the punchy high-end sound, then finally with an acoustic guitar for extra weight (when you record like this with an acoustic buried below electrics, instead of hearing the actual notes you only really hear the percussion aspects of the acoustic)...

or you could copy and paste like fwqhgads mentioned, you just pan the tracks hard left and hard right...when you record like this you need to EQ your tone accordingly, meaning turn down the gain and you might need to alter your low/mids/highs, because when you mix multiple tracks to form one guitar sound it will sound completely different from one track would sound like...

i don't know if i explained that well enough, just ask questions if you need to...

Also, you can reamp with the POD. I don't know if you know this already, but here is how:

1. Open up guitar port and click the button 'POD XT Console'. This can also be found by opening up you control panel and hitting 'Switch to classic view' and then clicking on the PODxt Live icon.

2. On the right side of the window that pops up, there should be a scroll down menu. You will want to select the option for 'Send Clean Guitar, Reamp playback' or something. I think it is option 3.

3. Record your clip in Cubase, and then set the output of the track with your clip on it to 'Podxt Live' and then let the Pod record onto track two.

Please note that this may not be exactly right, as I do not have my POD with me right now, and I haven't done it in a long time.

The porpose of this is so that, if you lay down a guitar track and then decide that it would sound better with a different amp model, you just edit it on the pod and let it do the rest of the work. It's actually pretty cool.

Alright, say that you are working on a song that you are recording. You pull up a patch on your POD and record it into your computer. Imagine that it is one of the greatest guitar tracks you have ever done, and everything is perfect. You rejoice. You then listen to the track, and say to your self, what ****ty tone! So, you go to your POD do some tweaking and reamp your track. You get to keep the track, but change the tone. However, the first track must be played clean, with nothing applied to it.

123. So that, if you do want to change something, then you will be able to. Without having one patch with some effect that you want to change, and you wouldn't be able to fully change it, because it would still be there.

Think of it as just plugging your guitar into your amp. But instead, your computer is the 'guitar' and the pod is the 'amp' going back into your compy. When you try it you will understand.

3. How do the FX compare to those of, say, the T.C. electronics G-Major?

You need to be patient. Im most likely in a different time zone and it takes me some time to get on and answer these.

1. How many effects can you use at once? Can I use two delays at once?

Effects are broken up into parts. You can have the Wah, Compression, EQ, Volume Pedal, One Modulated effect, One Verb effect and one One delay effect running at the same time on one patch.

2. Does it have effect loops that you can turn on and off? How many? Can you format a preset to include a loop? Can you run two loops at once? I have already spent money on some pedals, and don't want them to go to waste, so I'd like to put them in a loop and incorporate them into my presets.

Im not exactly sure what you are trying to say here, but you can run your FX's or other pedals in fron or behind the signal chain as well as use your Pod's inbuilt FX.

3. How do the FX compare to those of, say, the T.C. electronics G-Major?

The FX on the stock PodXT are decent, they do not compare with stand alone FX such as listed above. The FX Junkie Model Pack adds more effects on and the quality of FX are pretty good but some are un-useable.

4. What are it's pitch-shifting capabilities?
None.

Sorry about being impatient, I appreciate you getting back to me.

In #2, I realize now that I had it mixed it mixed up with that new T.C. Electronics G-System, which does have seperate effects loops. I know they're not comparable.

Thanks again for the rest of the info.

There are no Sitar or Acoustic simulations. I think what Lightning_Rider was talking about is there are some patches like this:

VAR/Sitar
VAR/JumboAco

And that. The Pod itself does not simulate these. Notice the 'VAR/' in front. This stands for Variax. So, when you have your Variax plugged in to the digital input, when you stomp on one of these patches, it will change the Variax to Sitar or Acoustic guitar.


If anyone has any questions about the Variax, just ask me.

I'm pretty sure you can, I remember reading in the manual. You have to do some kind of special save that saves the EQ settings to the default values for that particular amp model in the XT Live's memory so every time you call that amp model back, you don't have to find that EQ sweet spot again.

I have the xtLive, so it comes with the FX pack. There are some pretty interesting effects in there, but also some very useful ones like the chorus. If you have listened to some of the sound samples on the site, and you like what you hear and can add them into your sound, then go for it.

Puppet Lizards_Frontman

Yeah, could someone tell me if its worth getting the FX model pack? I'm definitely getting the metal pack, don't know how useful the FX is.

The usefullness of the FX Model Pack really depends on a few things.

First, it comes with a lot of synths. That in itself is cool, but it takes MAJOR, and I mean like MAJOR^1000000, tweaking to get good sounding synth patches. Once you do find good sounding patches, they sound sweet. You just have to be extremely patient.

Second, stompbox compressors make up a huge amount of the new stuff too, so unless you really understand how to shape your sound with compression they won't be very usefull.

On the other hand, the chorus', delays, and other modulations that come with it are AMAZING and really can help you create some awesome and unique tones.

So it's really up to you.

So I'm assuming you have the Bean PODXT?

If you're going to get two model packs, you should just buy all 3 packs for 100$ right away. You may not NEED the Classic Amp pack, but it doesn't hurt considering it's free if you buy the FX and Metal Shop. Plus, the clean tones you can get on those amps are phenominal, and the dirty tones are damn near perfect. You never know, you might want to experiment later on too.

Im basically searching for "my" tone, I know what I want but I cant seem to get it, so Im looking into new gear, and I figure with all the stuff PODxt's have in them Ill probebly find something.

Yeah you create your patches on the computer or on the pod and save them into banks, then you can scroll through banks with the knobs on the pod or using a foot controller.

For a MIDI foot controller, the Behringer FBC1010 would have to be the best, for the price.

Did a quick jam of my stuff on my XT, and suggestions about my tone(s)?

It differs for different recording software. First make sure you have the drivers for the pod installed properly. Usually just look for something where you can select your recording device or VST Master input.

I'm thinking of controlling my PODxt with a MIDI controller. It's not gonna be anything fancy like a Behringer FCB or Ground Control Pro.

All I know is that you have to plug the MIDI OUT of the foot controller and put it in MIDI IN of the PODxt, right?

And I have to set the foot controller and the PODxt both in the same MIDI channel, right? If so, how can I set the PODxt MIDI channel to the same channel as the foot controller?

i would imagine it says in the Manual what you need to do...

so what exactly is a patch? i've heard (seen) it used a lot around here but i don't really have a solid idea on what it is.

Its a bank where all the amp/stomp/cab/fx settings are stored and can be recalled whenever needed.

In the back of the manual, there will be a list of what channels do what on the POD with MIDI. I'm not really sure how to configure a floor board for the POD though, you may have to ask AG.

can someone give me a quick overview of how to work all the pedals? I was considering the Boss multi effects pedal, because of it's stupidly clear layout, then I found out how bad it sounded. So how would you for example start with a completley bare sound, and then add distortion and some delay or something?

Hey guys. I've just got myself a V-Amp 2.0. And how the hell do I save my settings on this thing ? :confused:

if you are asking about the PodXT, this is how it works...

1. first you choose an amp model...this could be a very clean sounding amp (for example, Line 6 Clean is a PodXT amp model that is obviously "clean) or a classic rock style amp (for example one modeled after a Vox AC30) or a high-gain modern rock amp (for example, one modeled after a Marshall JCM800)...you can alter the eq all you like...

2. then you choose a cabinet...this could be a 1x12, 2x12, 4x10, etc...there are also multiple types of the same style of cabinet...

3. next choose the mic that you want to use and where to place it in front of the amp (this is not a real mic, its digital and is accessed through the Pod or your PC)...

4. you choose a stompbox effect...this could be more distortion or a host of other effects...

5. next you choose a modulation effect...this is mostly choruses and the like...

6. then comes delay effects...obviously, this one is different types of delay...

7. now you can choose how much reverb (if any) that you want...if you have only the PodXT and no floor control unit then move to #9....if you have a PodXTL or a floor control unit then go to #8

8. choose whether you want the expression pedal to be a volume pedal, wah pedal, or if you want it to control the amount of an effect (for example, the amount of gain used on your stompbox effect)...

9. now you can save your patch (everything you just put together)...on your PodXT you save it to the Pod and bring it up by turning some knobs...with the PodXTL or a floor controlled Pod you can save each patch to one of 4 patch pedals (marked A,B,C,D)...also on the PodXTL, there are two pedals on the left of the unit marked "Bank Up" and "Bank Down", using either of these takes you to another "bank" which contains another set of 4 patches (again assigned to A,B,C,D)...with the PodXTL you get 32 banks of 4 patches (may be off a little, should go and check) which gives you 128 patches...

a quick note...at any time you can bypass the amp, stompbox effect, modulation effect, or delay just by stepping on the appropriate button on your floor board (if you don't have a floor control unit then i don't know how to change things on the fly)...

as i wrote this out, i realized how confusing this must seem, but once you get a hold of the Pod and especially if you hook it up to your computer, it becomes insanely simple to use...

This is a PodXT thread not a V-Amp thread.
