Line 6 POD X3 LIVE

Pod X3 Live includes every input and output you need to practice, perform and record. No stone was left unturned for connectivity. Use the 1/4" instrument input for guitar or bass and the XLR microphone input for vocals and more. During practice, use the stereo headphones output to keep the noise down. For performances, plug in front of your amp or directly into the P.A. Use the stereo effect loop to add in your favorite stompboxes and other effects as well. When you connect a Line 6 Variax® guitar via the Variax input on your POD X3 Live, you can instantly recall POD X3 Live's amp, cab, and effect model settings matched with the perfect electric or acoustic guitar model all by stepping on a single footswitch. When you're ready to record, use the stereo balanced line outputs or digital S/PDIF output for traditional recording. Or use the new USB 2.0 connection for pro-level multi-channel computer recording.

I really like your blog. Very complete information on the POD. Are you interested in making a few bucks writing or maybe you would like to trade some posts. I have a site dedicated to effects processors and there is an area devoted directly to guitar effects processors and pedalboards. If you think you might be interested in some articles written by me to use on your blog, let me know. I love to write and I enjoy helping out other guitarists (I've played for 30 years).

Just go to my site and shoot me an email. Maybe we can work something out. I'd love to help you get more readers for your blog.

So... where's the review?

Simonlittlebass said...

Do you think the X3 Live could be a good solution for Chapman Stick players? ie: it looks like you can process two separate inputs at the same time (the guitar and bass sides)....
