I have an unusual problem. I just purchased my 3rd Pod X3 Live to replace my 1st one which had become a backup. I saved all of my patches from the older Pod X3 Live and then uploaded them to my newer one. The drivers are exactly the same and everything else is exactly the same. I've checked everything out between both boards....all the settings are equal...yet, the new board sounds very wimpy by comparison. I've done side by side checks. Am I missing something here ? Has there been a different version or an update that I don't know about ?

There were several FW revs to the XTL.  You might want to make sure that they are both at the same patch rev.

There are lots of settings to compare - type of output is important make sure it's the same.  You will probably find something not set the same on your new unit.

Do you have the outputs set to the correct method, or at least the same wrong one?
