Thats funny because that is one of the most often complimented models from our end users.
That said, comparing it to the original, it probably doesn't "sound as good..." - nothing is like the original of course.
Hopefully a some other users will chime in with a few ideas, maybe settings, but in the end this is a subjective question, so I am closing it out.

I agree - I'm using the X3Live and both the Univibe and the Phase 90 emulations have this same problem - the sweep isn't smooth or even, and have that "hump" at the high end of the sweep. Have you come up with any workarounds since starting this post?

Thanks for writing in folks,
I'm embarassed to say I did not know anyone replied here, so sorry for the delayed response. I have still not found any other way of dealing with the U-Vibe settings, so I just don't use it. It's easy enough to put my Danelectro pedal in front of the amp and Vibe away.
I have to agree with you, the rise and fall of the Vibe is just uneven...and some of the other manufacturers out there have a nice little added swirl on their vibes when the depth is at maximum...Yum! Boss is my favourite, (I had a GT-8, GT-10, and ME-50 for a while. Not too crazy about their distortions or amps). I don't know if I am alone in that opinion or not.
Will wait patiently for that glorious Spider IV update announcement where Line 6 says, "We have tweaked some of the effects for more realism - enjoy your new Uni-vibe"
....whoops, was I daydreaming there?
C'mon Line 6! Help us Vibe junkies out!

Here Here!!! How bout a "multi-vibe" just to keep egos happy? Seeing as some "top" people at line6 have been told its the best univibe they ever heard - my gear couldnt be that lacking not to pick up on the brilliance, a bit of tweaking by the experts couldnt be that difficult!... could it? i love the amps in the x3live and the other modulation effects are generally very useable and pleasing to the ears! now if I can just fix my volume pedal problem!!!

I agree, the spatial effect found on the boss GT-pro UNivibe (or ME50) for example is just way more like what the Hendrix sound would have been like, very detailed. I;ve owned both of those and am now the proud owner of the x3 live sadly I could not get the univibe to sound the way I like it using my Gibson SG and Marshall JCM900. I think more control over the effect might help and couldnt be that difficult to program into the X3 from the software end of things. Please line 6 guys? THe amp simulators are amazing and blow the boss out of the water though it must be said!
