i have the pod x3 live and plan on buying a pod hd 500x and wanted to know if it can do the same thing the digitech whammy dt can do specifically the down and up tuning feature and can it track as good as the whammy because i read on a different forum that its not good. im wondering if they fixed it as well.

The Whammy generally has smoother tracking than the Pitch Bender effect on the POD. If you're simply doing dive bombs are quick octave effects, you can get good results with the POD. But if you're looking for more, you might need your Whammy. There's also the Smart Harmony effect on the POD that does pitch shifting, but, again, it's still only a monophonic effect. I believe the newest Whammy pedal has polyphonic pitch shifting capabilities.

Some of the best polyphonic pitch shifting I've heard is Electro Harmonix POG, although that only does octaves. Still, it sounds amazing. I wish they'd make a plugin version!
