pod farm does not replace gearbox...
pod farm will not talk to your x3, and will not modify the patches on the x3.
you will still need to use gearbox for that....
pod farm is something different...
with the x3 it's meant to be used as a plugin...
you record dry sound from x3... and use pod farm to add amps and effects later.

Oh I know that I can use it like a VST with Cubase for example, but since you can open it up as a standalone program and not into Cubase I thought you could use it that way too.
In fact, I'm pretty sure you can, because not only can you edit a dry tone with it, but you can tweak effects on the go. So my question still stands :/

POD Farm 2 will use the ASIO inputs from the X3 and process them. For the X3, GearBox was a control interface, but not a sound processing interface. PF 2 is a full processing interface, but cannot be used as a control interface for the X3. When you want to use PF 2 you should probably turn down the master volume on the X3.
Your settings are correct. It has nothing to do with your headphones. Just listen through your PC.

Great. I'll try turning down the master volume and update this Thanks
Edit: What happens with an effect that requires the expression pedal to be used? Like a wah? Does it still work in POD Farm 2? (since I'd be using the pedalboard pedal)

BigChas52's answer is correct, POD Farm will process your guitar's sound the same way the POD X3 Live processes your guitar's sound. So if you want to use POD Farm to control your sound, simply use a blank preset on the POD X3, and use POD Farm for all of the amps and effects. From there you could add effects from the POD X3 live by simply turning them on in the preset, keep in mind that these effects would come before the POD Farm effects in the signal flow.
The onboard controls of the POD X3 will not control the POD Farm 2 software. To do that you will need to use one of our FBV MKII series pedals, or a third party MIDI controller.
