Line 6 has begun shipping POD X3 Pro, a powerful $979.99 POD signal processor.
POD X3 Pro features two discreet signal paths and can serve two separate instruments simultaneously, each with its own complete signal chain of amps and effects. Conversely, Dual Tone processing lets a player treat POD X3 Pro like an A/B/Y box. Sending a single-input signal through two different amp and effect chains, a player can choose one, the other, or both sounds to attain one-pass double-tracked guitars or to create gorgeous dual-layered sounds.
POD X3 Pro comes complete with a powerful software bundle. POD Farm Plug-in, that delivers POD tone to any DAW and works seamlessly with all major recording applications including Pro Tools, Ableton Live, GarageBand, Logic, Cakewalk/Sonar and others. GearBox lets users edit, share, transfer and backup their tones using an easy-to-use computer interface.
A large LCD gives players one-touch signal-chain display and access. Sounds can be fully modified on-the-fly without distracting from the performance. The Pod X3 Pro offers 1/4-inch, XLR, USB, MIDI, S/PDIF and Variax connections.
