Line6 Pod X3 Live Sound Problem, Patches Problems....

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

  I have a Line6 pod x3 live but it doesn't work well. I have update the firmware, but all the patches sounds equals. I have delete all the previous patches when I have update the firmware. I have downgrade the firmware too and everything is just the same. I have recover a backup of another Line6 pod x3 live presets o patches but everything is just the same. I don't what more can I do. Could anyone help me please.

 

  Thanks you very much and best regards.

Can you elaborate a bit on what you mean by 'all the patches sound equal'? Do you mean they all sound similarly poor (fizzy, scratchy, low volume, noisy, ....) although you can detect a basic difference when you switch patches? Or do you literally mean all patches sound exactly the same - in other words you can't tell any difference in the sound when you change patches (in this case the patch might actually sound good, but they all sound identically good).

 

If it's the latter case (all patches actually sound identical) it could simply be that you have Tone 2 Locked, and your patches only use Tone 2. To make sure Tone 2 is unlocked, check the padlock icon in the bottom row of the Home page display; turn the little knob beneath the icon until it shows unlocked.

 

But if it's the former case please provide more detailed information about the bad sound you are hearing.

Hello Line 6!

 

It seems like i have the same problem. My line 6 pod x3 live is sounding dist/chruchy on every sound at every channel a little bit in the background of the sound that I´ve been choosing. When i change sound It only changes a little bit but still have the disted sound on it. I think it is like you say silverhead! "all sound similarly poor (fizzy, scratchy, low volume, noisy, ....)"

I need help, please! Is there anything i can do?

Hello Line 6!

 

I think i have the same problem. All of my sounds at every channel have this little crunchy/distorted sound in the background. I believe that it´s like Silverhead say: "all sound similarly poor (fizzy, scratchy, low volume, noisy, ....)". I can't get at clear or clean sound. Its not possible because the distorted is always there. Thats the best way for me to describe it. What can i do about it? I´ve tried using "Line 6 monkey" but nothing happens. The bad sound is still there. I have also tried to do factory reset but nothing happens.

 

I need help, please!

The tones are awesome but there is Always an awful sound in the background...

Same problem as everyone else. Everything has a light distorted sound the cleans sound real bad. I have updated software and reset back to factory settings. I used to love my x3 live but now it sounds so bad it makes me want to break it.

Maybe you choose tone 1 and tone 2 to work together! And this choose distorted every sound you have!

  Hi Friends,

 

  I have already put a post on another forum, but just in case it will not be seen, I'll post it here as well.  Many of these sound issues can be easily fixed with a little Isopropyl alcohol or other contact cleaner. 

 

  Unplug all of your cords and power supply, and dip that swab into the alcohol/contact cleaner and then clean out all of your input and output 1/4" jacks.  Give it a couple of minutes to dry and plug her back in and see if this alleviates your sound problems.  I don't know how many times this little trick has saved me tons of money and valuable time chasing down other "fixes" when this was all it was.  Dirty input/output jacks!!!

 

  Let me know if this helps any of you out :-)

Hi, not sure if my problem is the same but my x3 pod sounds fuzzy like the speakers a bust and the patches that have a good distortion sound weak like there's not enough power getting through. anyone else have the same problem?

Did any of you find the solution for this issue?

 

I've just bought used Pod X3 live and I have exact the same problem of distorted sound in every clean tone.

BTW, I think I've isolated the problem to the amp+cab, since always the distortion disappears when I turn amp+cab off (but the sound also becomes very weak)
