You don't say whether you've  already read the manual on this. If not, I'd start there. Here's what it  says:

On  System Page 2:

MIDI Ch (POD X3 Live & POD X3 Pro only) – choose from  MIDI Channel 1-16, or select Omni to have POD X3 Live & Pro respond  to all MIDI channels, while transmitting on Channel 1. The MIDI channel  chosen from the display user interface will be used as the Channel for  Tone 1. Tone 2 will use the next MIDI Channel.
When program change  messages 0-127 are received, POD X3 Live & Pro will recall User  Presets 01A-32D, and will transmit those same program changes as presets  are selected from the POD X3 Live & Pro hardware. It also echoes  all program change messages it receives, so it can be connected “thru”  to another MIDI device.

The X3L was never designed to be a midi controller. It was never intended to be a midi controller. It was never advertised as being a midi controller. That being said, the X3L can send and receive some, pre-defined midi messages. But, they are not easy to use. If you have some experience with using midi programming, you can figure out the messages that the X3L can send and receive, and then use those messages. However, you need to have the general midi knowledge first.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
