  1. When you are paying huge amounts of money and the unit is advertised and talked about as being state of the art then the consumer has the right to expect to be blown away. Otherwise why build and advertise it. I was not blown away. I think the POD X3 sounds better especially the JCM 800.
  2. I've had a HD Pro X and I was wondering what the differences are between the bean version and the HD Pro X. Does the bean version have less processing power? I would imagine the amp models are the same.
  3. Sure there will be some differences, but huge differences? Nope. It's more what the company is doing to them.
  4. I just tried a Fractal Axe-FX II expecting to be blown away but I was not. It's supposed to be state of the art. Least it was before Axe-FX III took it's place. But even the Marshall JCM 800 did not sound as good as what is in the POD X3. I've tried a Fractal and an Eleven rack and neither one compares to the JCM 800 that is in my X3. Plus all the detailed knobs which are unnecessary that don't do much to change the sound of what you are hearing. Maybe I'll try a Helix next. Seems Line6 stuff is equal to if not better than anyone else's.
  5. Okay Thanks for the info. I'm considering buying either that or a used AXE-FX.
  6. Yes I'm serious. I don't know anything about how the Helix was made. So my question remains.
  7. I currently have the POD X3 which I like mainly for the fantastic JCM800 in it. I have had a few HD Pro X units which I thought were quite bad since the Marshalls sounded dirty and muddy and what Line 6 did with other things in them like change EQ's to use percentages etc. I did not like those much at all. Do the amp models in the Helix sounded better yet than what I have in the X3 and what did they do with the Equalizers? Do they still use percentages or are those back to normal? How do the Marshall amps sound in the Helix?
  8. I was wondering if anyone here has tried running their guitar into a preamp pedal first and then go from that into the input on the POD? I was thinking of trying it to see if I could a little beefier and thicker tone with my Dimarzio Area 67 which I have in the neck.
  9. Perhaps I could run my guitar through my preamp pedal first, then into the POD?
  10. Well I am able to load the presets now so that is good. But the problem I'm having now is that everything sounds too clean. I'm not getting a lot of distortion out of the amps. Of course I'm using the Duncan YJM Fury pickups and those are not hot pickups. I will probably put in my full size humbucker. It's a Duncan Custom and hopefully that will beef things up.
  11. Wait...I think I got it working now. It appears that you have to open up the patch in the main GearBox window, not the Hardware Memory Window which is how I was doing.
  12. I just tried using drivers version and and I still can't open up the patch I made last night. This is extremely weird.
  13. Okay I think I have a problem. Last night I opened up GearBox and I made my own tone and saved it in a folder. Now today I tried to load that exact same tone and I still got an error message saying unrecognized file type. I installed the drivers and GearBox separately. I'm using GearBox 3.72 and drivers version What should I do?
  14. It does not appear that there are any X3 patches on Custom Tone. I don't recall having this problem when I had an X3 many years ago.
  15. I did select X3 as the basis for my search and I got a bunch of .l6t files but apparently can't open them up. I wish there was a fix.
