Line 6 POD X3 Pro launches
Music gear maker Line 6 has released a new model in its POD line of guitar-focused signal processors, the X3 Pro. The Pro is able to handle two instruments simultaneously, each with a separate chain of sounds and effects. Musicians can alternately treat the system like an A/B/Y box, dividing a signal input into two chains that can be selected or combined for effects such as dual-layering. A backlit LCD panel displays the effects enabled on each chain, and the processor has a wide variety of inputs and outputs, including USB, MIDI, XLR and 1/4" connections.
The Pro models 78 guitar amps, 24 guitar cabs, and 98 stompboxes and effects, plus 28 bass amps and 22 bass cabs. Additionally, there are six vocal preamp models. Line 6 is selling the Pro for $980.
