So the only way to use the FX is with a phone or tablet? There's no way to use windows? So if somebody doesn't have a smartphone or tablet this thing is useless? I do have an android but I would hate to have to use that rather than my computer right next to my other equipment. Thanks for any help.
2x12 and 4x12 are not showing up on PODxt series Q: My manual refers to output modes "4x12" and "2x12", or "VIBE", but I can't find them on my POD XT Live A: We decided to use more intuitive, user-friendly terms on the POD XT Live, but unfortunately the manual was not updated. Where the manual mentions "4x12" and "2x12", it is referring to "Stack mode" and "Combo mode", respectively, in the Pod XT's "What am I connected to?" mode. Each of these modes offer the option of connecting through the "Front" of the amp or the "Pwramp" (back) section of the amp. When using the "Front" option, tone correction options are made available to shape the overall PODxt output to sound good in front of a combo amp. The "What are you connecting to" page previously offered an option for "Live: Front of 2x12 Combo", which was basically a "2x12 power amp with speakers" setting with some additional filtering to compensate for the sound of your combo amp's preamp section. This setting was replaced by the VIBE setting, which split out the speaker configuration and the combo preamp compensation into two different adjustable parameters. Incidentally, the VIBE setting that mapped to the old "combo mode" setting is "MIDHVY - 480Hz" when used along with the "Live: 2x12" DEST setting. PODxt set to MONO Q: How can I set the Podxt to mono if I'm connecting the Podxt to a mono amp? A: You will have to set the Podxt to "Live" mode. To do this, select the tuner button, turn the select knob until you see "What are you connected to" page. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to "Live 4X12 or 2X12" or "Stack" or "Combo". This will alow the Podxt outputs to be mono. EX-1 control parameters on Podxt Q: I am having a problem getting my PODxt to allow me to control the effect parameters via the expression pedal on the FBV Shortboard. A: The EX-1 expression pedal will control some functions and this is how you get them to work. Press the "Edit" button then turn the "select" knob until you see the "wah | volume" page. On the volume side, select or highlight "Assign" with the third soft button located under the main display. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to change from volume to Tweak. In the updated PODxt, these parameters are changed on the page after the "wah/volume" page. By changing from volume to tweak you have engaged to EX-1 to control any function that comes under "tweak". To find out what's under the tweak selection, turn the "Select" knob to the next page where you will see "FX Tweak | tempo". on the FX tweak side you may scroll through the stomp tweaks, delay tweaks, mod tweaks etc. Make sure if you select say the delay time, the delay button light must be on and so with the other effects. PODxt three stomp with FBV Q: Can the PODxt actually play three stomp box sounds when conected to a FBV? Section 9-7 of the pilots handbook seems to indicate that. A: These buttons are for the Vetta series of amps. With the PodXt, the Stomp2 button controls Compression on/off and Stomp3 controls Gate On/Off. This is explained in the documentation that ships with the FBV. Connecting any POD unit to an amplifier POD Connections, Routing and the 4 Cable Method Amp bypassed on PODxt Q: How do I bypass the Amp Models? A: In preset mode turn the amp model knob counter clock wise to Bypass with all the effects buttons off, this will put the Podxt/Bass PODxt in bypass, then "save". You are really making a bypass channel or bypass preset. Q: If I set the PODxt to bypass the amp sounds, is the preamp of the PODxt bypassd, will I get the pure tone of my amp? A:Yes, you can also save your setup as a preset (no amp model, just effects). Can you adjust the S/PDIF or AES/EBU output volume level? Press the I/O & Dig Select button on the right hand side of the POD / Bass PODxt Pro. Then press the Soft Button below GAIN and spin the EFFECT TWEAK knob to add up to 12 db of gain on the digital outs. This is useful to help cut down on excessive use of normalization after recording in the digital domain. Pod XT Input specs: Q: What is A.I.R. II? A: A.I.R. II is Line 6's second generation Acoustically Integrated Recording technology. It expands your sonic choices and creative options by allowing you to choose a variety of microphone models and adjust their placement in front of the cabinet. Microphone choices and placement options include models based on Shure SM-57, Sennheiser MD-421 and a Neumann U-67 - on- and off-axis. Line 6, GuitarPort, POD and Vetta are trademarks of Line 6, Inc. All other product names are trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with Line 6.

Q: How do I go about bypassing the amps and cabs in my Vetta? A: The amp models can be bypassed on any preset channel, simply turn the amp model knob to the left to amp model "1" this is amp model bypass, then "Save". With the amp model in bypass the cabinet model will follow, "No Amp, No Cab". Q: How can I set the volume pedal on the FBV or FBV Shortboard to be "always on"? A: All you have to do is "Save" it in the on position into each preset. Simply go into each preset, activate the volume pedal and press SAVE. Q: Can I load Vetta II presets into my original Vetta? A: No, Vetta II presets loaded into your non-updated Vetta can cause your amp to freeze up if they contain amps, effects, or other features that are not in the original Vetta. If this happens, simply turning the amp off and back on again should bring things back to normal, but you probably want to avoid that, especially at a gig or session. Q: Are the post effects in the Vetta routed after the cabinet modeling? A: Yes, the Post Effects come after the Cabinet Models. Q: Does the Vetta have an Acoustic Simulator? A: The Vetta does not include an acoustic simulator but it does feature two amp models that were designed to be used with acoustic guitars with piezo pickups and electric guitars that feature one of those fancy, newfangled bridges with the 'acoustic' pickup built in. Q: If I have a Variax plugged into a PODxt Live or Vetta, can I run Workbench and Line 6 Edit at the same time? A: No. Due to the MIDI connection between the Vetta II and the computer, there are some messages sent when running both programs that do not allow them to be run at the same time. Q: Is the Vetta Midi controllable? A: Yes. please consult the manual for the midi implementation list. Line 6 Manuals Q: Why doesn't Vetta do delay spillover? A: For delay and reverb trails to work correctly, you would need an entire second processing engine (or most of one), and a separate signal (or data) path. Let's take an simplified example from a PODxt: You've got a screamer and tube delay pre with 2 repeats, a Blackface Lux model, a Rotary Horn and a light plate reverb post. You switch to a different patch that has the delay switch to a digital in post with 6 repeats, shuts off the mod, but changes it to a U-Vibe and moves it pre, changes the reverb to a heavy Medium Hall, and switches the amp model to Insane. If you just take the delay buffer and dump it out, you get the sound of a tubescreamer (since what's in the buffer actually gets processed by the tube and wow and flutter models as it leaves the buffer) with none of the delay tonality, amp tone, no modulation, no reverb. Or, you run it through the new models and get something completely jarring. To make it sound reasonably natural, you need to process the buffer through the tube delay model, through the Blackface Lux model, through the Rotary Speaker, and through the plate reverb model. In other words, just about the exact same amount of processing that it takes to do a whole sound anyway. So, you have to have a second processor, just as powerful as the main one, that is only used to do this when switching patches (because if you use it to do anything else, you might not have enough horsepower available to do all the processing required. In other words, a second XT, lying fallow, except for those few seconds a night that you might need it). It's like buying a second car that you constantly have on a tow bar behind your regular car, just in case you run out of gas. Not very practical.
