Line 6 POD
I am a little biased towards all things Line6 when it comes to effects units....not amps. I have used the POD live, POD rack mount, and the XT unit. There is a common operation that flows throughout the POD series that makes effect tweaking pretty smooth and effortlessly. Once I got the first POD unit which was the live rig I learned how Line 6 tailored their units. However, this unit flows more line there floor boxes such as the DL4 or FM4. The screen isn't going to be like regular PODs where it is mostly digital screen editing. You do have a solid screen but somewhat limited if you have use the POD Pro products. You will have to twist the knobs and look where you control is to know where your at. The new POD X3 conquers this issue and is more digital screen editing. Even though you have midi capability so if using with a Ground Control Pro or some other floor midi switcher you can set up your chain of effects and click your foot control for quick on the fly present changing.

The main difference in this one was that there wasn't a screen rather an electronic dial. They have since improved this version but the overall tone hasn't reallya changed. Everything as far as effects and models are manually shifted rather thn electronically on the screen.

UTILIZATION

The sound is great when it comes to the effects and modulation. The amps simulations are pretty terrible. If you are a natural amp distortion or even used to OD pedals then this is pretty pointless. That is the problem with digital amp simulators they never really match up the real thing. So you will be disappointed if you are looking for something to replace an amp or get a Rectifier sound with this unit going into your Fender Hot Rod.

Easy set up ready....just flip the controls and your up and running. The manuals from Line 6 are always helpful. They do a very god job in there instructions showing you how to get the best sound of the gear you are using it with. One of the best in this factor.

SOUND QUALITY


I was using this with a Strat and a Les Paul into a Marshall JCM2000 into a vintage Marshall 4x12 with blackbacks. The effects such as delays and choruses sound fantastic! This is where I lived with this unit. Did not even bother with the amp sims. The range of delays, flangers, choruses give you most everything you will use in a recording or live situation. If you rely on mostly effects with your guitar sound then I would recommend then stepping up to an X3 or the POD Live units.

OVERALL OPINION


The thing I enjoyed most about this unit was the cool delay and flanger sounds. This is a unit I would use sparingly when I needed to color my natural amp tone with some delays or flanger. I would never use this to get an amp sim or sound that I did not normally have.

The is a great intro to the POD family. They run about $1o0 in the classifieds and online give or take. For someone who does not use effects that much or someone who would like to get started in the effect tweaking arena who is on a budget I would highly recommend them to this product. You are going to get some great tones to add to your rig for well under what most companies charge for one stomp box.

I think Line 6 is one of the best if not the best companies out there who provide solid effect units for the all-in-one consumer who wants to keep things simple and clean. I would play this unit any day of the week. I don't use too much effects so something like this is perfect for me and it is perfect for home use!

Line 6 POD
This is a comprehensive floorboard for the POD (and POD 2.0) that makes it possible to use the POD live. It has every option one could want from such a device, with the ability to change by bank, with each of the four patches within each bank. It has quick access to the tuner and the tap tempo. Line 6 was even generous with the type of cable that connects the floorboard to POD. It comes with a long CAT5/RJ-45 type cable, meaning you can substitute in your own longer cable if you wish. This is great, but because the guitar plugs into the POD and not the floorboard, this could lead to some very long cable lengths going back and forth, so it's probably more efficient to have the POD up front with the floorboard. Unfortunately, it can't be used with any of the new POD's.

UTILIZATION

This is very easy to use, I don't even think I had to crack open the manual. Just plug it in and you're ready to go. The POD provides the power, so the only connection for the floorboard is the above mentioned network cable.

SOUND QUALITY

I can't really comment on the sound quality of this, because it doesn't change the sound quality of the POD. Unfortunately, I have to give this option a rating, but if I could avoid giving it one I would.

OVERALL OPINION

When I had one of these it was great. I don't know if at the current price point it would be worth it to pick up a POD or POD 2.0 and this floorboard or a used POD XT Live. I now own a POD XT Live, but if I didn't have either, I probably would pick up the XT Live instead to avoid a large number of connections in and out of the POD and across the stage. As stated above, unfortunately it can't be connected with a POD XT or later POD, which limits it usefulness today.

Line 6 POD
The Line 6 POD is a portable amplifier simulator with all types of amp modeling capabilities and effects. This is made for guitar, but probably will work with whatever you would like to use it with. It is a digital unit with 1/4 inch inputs and outputs. It is not a rackable unit.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of this unit is really basic and easy to figure out. It won't take long to figure out what everything does and even though there is a lot that this can do, it is all easy to learn. There are general parameters for output level, drive, bass, middle, treble, channel volume, reverb and effect tweak. Then there are toggle knobs to choose different amp models and various effects. You can also make presets and use the presets they have made. The manual is pretty complete, but I never used it to much for this unit.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of this unit is my least favorite part about this. While I find a lot of the effects usable, since it is digital I find the distortions and some of the amp models to be too tinny sounding and not realistic enough for my taste. I have only used this with guitar, as that is what it is made for and thats what I play. I do really like some of the effects like the delay and reverbs, but overall I was disappointed with the overall sound quality from the Line 6 POD.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Line 6 POD for about three years. Maybe it was because this unit was hyped up to me, but I'm not a huge fan of this unit. I like that it is an all in one option for guitar amp modeling and effects, but a lot of the sounds are realistic enough for me, especially the overdrives and distortions. The price is quite cheap, which makes it a great option for the beginning guitar player looking to get into using effects and amp modeling, but for the professional, I have found that this is somewhat inadequate. If you want some amp modeling for recording, I would recommend getting some of the Line 6 Amp Farm software, and if you want this for preforming live, just use a real amplifier instead!
