I recorded some stuff using a Line6 AMP with Duran Duran in the early two thousands and people constantly ask me "how did you get that guitar tone"
I simply plugged the amp into Pro Tools using S/PDIF
And so, I decided I needed the same tones at home
I bought a UX2 - it sounded okay but didn't have the wooden punchy tone I was looking for
Made sense to buy a POD
Go for the latest one right?
I have spent several years puzzling over the fact that I simply shoved the AMP I used on MANUAL and tweaked a bit and got a great sound
Finally I decided to go and buy a second hand Pod Pro
I also bought a POD 2.0 for my living room
Some maniac had reprogrammed them, so I loaded the factory patches into both of them
Both these units sound great (as far as I can tell, roughly the same)
But then thinking it would make more sense to use the X3 in my living room so I can plug a USB lead in and use it as an audio interface, I just swapped them round
I just dumped the POD 2.0 factory patches in my X3
It sounds TOTALLY different
The POD 2.0 sounds a lot like a guitar amp
The X3 sounds nothing like a guitar amp
Some of the patches are vaguely similar
Most of them are wildly different
I have no doubt this has been asked before, but can someone tell me where I can find a set of patches for the X3 that make it sound like a POD 2.0
And another thing
The basic models in the POD 2.0 seem to be missing? or just renamed? in the X3
I bought the X3 because I thought it did everything the POD 2.0 could do and it did some extra things
It wasn't even cheap
I mean what is it?
It is not really a POD at all if it can't be a POD
And surely it's all just software?
Could someone please explain!
