Hey , finally bought xt live and i'm very happy cause this unit rocks ! :afro:
Anyway i thought that all xt live users write their tips here , write their favourite tone's settings , their problems , etc..

For example i wrote a great tone (for me) includes marshall jcm800 head , marshall vintage 30's , mutron III auto wah (for stompbox) , square ce-1 chorus (for modulation) , boss dm-2 delay (of course for delay) and rich chamber reverb.. i love that tone maybe it works for you guys too..

But i couldnt find a tone for dream theater :dunno: , perhaps you guys can help me..

C'mon xt live users show me what you've got :thumb:

Dude, email me that patch you were talking about...I'll see if I've got anything in mine that remotely comes close to what you're looking for.

[email protected]

There's also some other threads that POD XT users are replying to about tone patches, so maybe you can find some others out there too.

You basically use the PodXT Live like you would use separate effects pedals and amps. Look through the doc to understand the controls and then just think about how you would connect and configure any pedal and amp combo you can imagine.

For example, select a tube amp model and then put a tube screamer in the path before the amp to juice the gain. Set the tube screamer drive low and its gain high.

This kind of shit is what I really enjoy doing with the PodXT Live. And not just with the effects. Play around with the mic settings and cabinets, and the EQ.

As for how to actually configure the damn thing, there is not a lot of shortcuts versus reading the manual. I can tell you that the thing most peeps screw up first is the input and output switches and settings. Pay close attention to that and you will be on your way.

Hope this helps.

When I first got my PodXT, I just dl'ed all the tones I could, and used them, then I started fooling around and making changes on some of them, until I really went through the manual, and now am starting to make my own tones. Like it was stated, it's really like working with real amps and effects, a lot of fun, but as my wife notices, boy does the time slip away.

Hey Scott, i have the podxt. Xtlive should be the same to hook up. Here is how i have mine hooked up. I run my L/R outputs to the L/R inputs of my mixer. Then i use the usb cable from xt to my pc. To monitor i run a cable from my amps line in to my mixers main out. I hope this helps ya.

If you don't have the model packs, especially the metal pack. I would get at least that one. There are some kickass tones with that pack.:thumb:

Right here Scott.:icon_thum Click on model packs.

www.line6.com/products.html?catagory=13

Also goto the support page and, download the monkey if you haven't yet. This will keep your pod up to date and, this is where you install the model packs, if you decide to get them.

:scratch: Hi, I'm just in the process of getting my 'XT live' back from Line6.
They've had to replace the main chip in it, (Whatever that is!) as it suddenly went 'belly up' and wouldn't produce any output sound, (So there's something to keep an eye on.)
Anyway, sounds.
I generally have two banks that I run like this, CLEAN, CRUNCH, RYTHM, LEAD.
I'll usually find a tone I like, (In this case it was a Line6 generic 'Blackmore' sound using humbuckers.) and then I'll play around with different EQ's, levels, and effects until I get somewhere close to what I hear in my head?
I use two banks because I have what I call my, 'British tone' which I can use to cover anything from, Oasis, Thin lizzy, Free, and even Floyd, and the other which is set up in the same format, but I used the Line6 sounds found on the Guitarport lesson for Slash, and again tinkered around with them for what I call my 'American sound' and use them to cover the likes of, Guns 'n' Roses (Natch!) etc.
I find that most british bands tend to have a slightly more, 'Treble' sound than our American friends, who seem to have a little more 'Middle' and 'Bass'
But at the end of the day, 'If it sounds right......Then it is right' and as sound is such a personal thing, only you can decide what's right and what's wrong.
After all, one man's distortion, is another man's 'Bumblebee in a jar'. :bannana_g
