  1. Thank you for the insight! I don't really want to buy POD farm 2 as i'd like to upgrade to a POD HD for the m-class fx and better amp models. I want to use the same sounds for recording as for playing live so POD farm would be useless to me when i finally get a POD HD and would be $99 wasted. I'd rather save my monies for the POD HD! Disappointed about the re-amping thing though. I guess I'll need a new sound card with more channels coming back from the computer as I only have 16 in 2 out at the moment.... I'm just not rich enough!
  2. Yeah, I understand Gearbox was replaced by POD farm, which was fine until they want me to pay more for a 64-bit version (all other plugins I own have provided free 64-bit updates). I could understand if some free or very old plugins don't go 64-bit but in my eyes this was part of the hardware purchase of the X3 and I don't think it would really be that difficult for line 6 to provide a 64-bit version of POD Farm 1. I know all the reasoning behind the decisions line 6 has made BUT that has made the X3 very prone to the times as now I can't do half the things I used to do be able to do with it without spending more money. It makes me hesitant to buy another line 6 pedal that might not be as functional in a few years. Thanks for the link to the post but thats not really the issue i'm having right now although it will help as sometimes gearbox is unresponsive! can you be more specific about the POD HD? - Will POD HD receive MIDI over USB (primarily for program changing)? And can it be used for re-amping via the USB or a plugin?
  3. Well after a bit more searching I can answer my own post. The X3 does not send or recieve MIDI over USB. I am absolutely gobsmacked. How come the older XT can do this and the X3 can't? Way to go for taking a step backwards. Actually make that two steps backwards as you can't re-amp through the USB with a pod X3 either. Very disappointed to find this out line 6. Not to mention the dropped support for gearbox and the fact the the AU or VST won't work in a 64-bit DAW. This X3 seems like money very badly spent. Can anyone tell me how the POD HD (500) will do with all of the above things?
  4. Hi Guys, I own a POD XT and have no problems sending MIDI to it to change a parameter or patch as the track plays. However, the POD X3 does not show up in any DAW or Audio MIDI setup as a MIDI device that i can send data to. I can send parameter changes via MIDI using an m-audio MIDI controller but not from the computer which is what i want. All drivers are up to date, using OSX 10.8.4 and like i said everything works fine with the XT. I must be missing something simple? Help please!!! and thanks in advance.
  5. Hahahaha, I suppose I am rather short. I just want a left handed compact variax!
  6. I Vote for one. Boooooooo for every company that doesn't make all guitars in a left handed model! I'm looking to buy one now and can never get the guitars i want left handed! I've had to put up with my arm hitting the tone or volume pot my whole life! Wait, I've got an idea. How about companies only make left handed guitars and then all you right handed lot can modify them instead! Please make more left handed models! This is discrimination!
