I don't have a JM-4, but I do use my looper (Boss RC3) all the time. I would assume the setup would be similar to mine....and is as follows:
Guitar > POD X3 Live > Looper > Powered Speaker/PA system
That way you can use your X3 Live's modelling options before the looper and make changes to tone as you go. For you, just throw your analog pedals between the guitar and POD as you have already done.
Hope this is helpful....

agile - thanks for the reply.
I read on this forum somewhere that the setup you described didn't yield good results to the poster. He said that he got tone loss even after he turned off all modelling on the JM-4. I guess I'll need to setup and find out for myself.
I got the JM-4 today in the mail.
What about using the JM-4 in the effects loop, anyone?
I can only see two ways of connecting this to give the results that you are after:
1) Guitar > Analog OD Pedals > POD X3 Live > JM4 > PA system & Powered Speaker (monitor)
2) Guitar > Analog OD Pedals > POD X3 Live FX Send - JM4 input - POD X3 Live left mono FX return | POD X3 left mono output > PA system & Powered Speaker (monitor)
