The Most Powerful POD Ever

The desktop-friendly POD® X3 represents the exciting evolution of the classic bean-shaped digital guitar amp modeler, with an expanded array of 78 guitar amps, from high-wattage heavyweights to boutique beauties and vintage treasures.

Guitar amp models are just the beginning: With 24 guitar cabs, 98 stompbox and studio effects, 28 bass amps, 22 bass cabs and six vocal preamps - POD X3 comes complete with the all-around sonic firepower of a top-tier major-label studio, ready to tackle guitar, bass vocals and beyond. What’s more, its larger LCD and smart new editing workflow pages make it easier than ever to find, tweak and save tones.

POD X3 also offers powerful new Dual Tone processing and routing options. Split your single-input guitar or bass signal through two different amp and effect chains simultaneously to create gorgeous new hybrids, or use the dual inputs on POD X3 to individually process two instruments—a microphone and a guitar, for example—at the same time. Whether you’re playing through a P.A., amp or recording rig, plug your microphone into the XLR input on the POD X3 to make vocals and acoustic guitars sound their absolute best.

Computer recording enthusiasts will want to exploit the USB 2.0 connectivity provided by POD X3 for multi-channel recording as well as its S/PDIF Stereo Digital Audio Output for sending an ultra-clean signal to their DAW. While commanding the studio with the classically styled POD X3, you’ll be outfitted with even more of the flexibility and timeless tones that have made POD the global standard for the discriminating guitarist.

The Most Mammoth Collection of Tones and Timbres Ever Assembled

Try to picture this: a pedal board that’s 30-feet long, with close to a hundred of the all-time greatest stompboxes (in pristine condition!), along with an effects rack that houses top-notch outboard compressors, reverbs, EQs and vintage preamps. And imagine that you could play and record through this über-board with no noise at all, only one power supply and only a couple of knobs and switches to control the entire thing.

That’s what you get with POD® X3: 98 stompbox and studio effect models, the most mammoth collection of tones and timbres ever assembled. You can quickly create a custom effect path with up to nine simultaneous effects, and with POD X3 Dual Tone processing, you can even run through two completely independent effects chains at the same time, to create totally original (and insane!) walls of sound. POD X3 includes:

  • Stomp: Fuzz, Distortion, Overdrive and every flavor of delicious dirt.

  • Mod: Chorus, Flanger, Tremolo, Rotary, Phaser; some serious swoosh.

  • Delay: Multiple types of Analog, Digital, Tape and other echoes, echoes, echoes. . .

  • Reverb: Multiple types of Room, Hall, Chamber, Plate, Spring and more.
