Quick Overview

The stage-ready POD® X3 Live represents the true evolution of the now-classic POD® xt Live 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 Live 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 Live also offers powerful new dual tone modeling 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 its dual inputs to individually process two instruments—a microphone and a guitar, for example—at the same time.

Computer recording enthusiasts will want to exploit the USB 2.0 connectivity provided by POD X3 Live for multi-channel recording as well as its S/PDIF Stereo Digital Audio Output for sending an ultra-clean signal to their DAW.

In addition to stereo 1/4-inch line outputs (with Amp/Line pad switch) POD X3 Live boasts stereo XLR balanced line outputs for the best possible live signal. When you hit the stage with the sleek, rugged brushed-aluminum POD X3 Live (with its racecar-inspired built-in expression pedal), 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 handful of knobs and switches to control the entire thing. Now imagine that it’s a svelte, sleek and shiny brushed-aluminum killer that looks awesome with your onstage rig.

That’s what you get with POD® X3 Live: up to nine simultaneous effects, and the most mammoth collection of tones and timbres ever assembled. 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. While its heavy-duty metal footswitches allow you to select presets and individual effect modules, the stylish and rugged POD X3 Live foot controller can be used to control wah, volume or to morph between effect settings. You can even integrate your collection of outboard rack and stompbox effects with POD X3 Live via its 1/4-inch stereo effects loop. POD X3 Live 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.

  • Beyond: Compressors, Gate, 4-Band Semi-Parametric EQ, Guitar Synth, Filters, Wah and the entire galaxy of otherworldly timbre tweakers.
