I am currently debating over the xt and the x3. Are there any Line 6ers who knew the main differences between the two? I have seen a couple pro's with the xt (porcupine tree, anberlin, muse(rack)) but not many with the x3. I have a boss gt8 right now but it is not cutting it so I am switching to this and single pedals in the fx loop. Which would be better to get rock/alternative/punk sounds?

IMO, the Pod X3 is the Pod XT with bass models.

If you want an ultra easy to use home studio without an amp in one unit, I'd go for the X3. If you want something to replace the GT8 then the XT Live will suit you fine.

There are only so many model packs you can get before it starts getting redundant. Maybe buy the Metal shop or Classic something or both to get the discount and it would still be a good bit cheaper than the X3.

What you might want to consider is selling your amp and processor and buying a used Vetta. It's not hard at all to find a Vetta and Floorboard for less than $800. Honestly, the Vetta is much better than 95% of the amps under $1,500. It's weakness is the bluesy gain. It does blues well, it just has a bit more of the preamp saturation than most blues guys prefer. If you're not a corksniffer the vetta is perfect.

I've got a Vetta II and love it! So I would of course recommend getting one of those...

But if you are comparing the xt to the X3 the biggest difference (Besides already having the add-on model packs) is being able to run two amp models and two cab models at once. I'll be honest... It's ridiculous. I had the xt Live for a while and got a pretty decent tone through it. But now I really love my tone with the dual amps and cabs.

Check this out also... A Vetta upgraded to v2.5 which is basically the Vetta II software/interface inside the old box...

My Vetta II.

Glad to see you're liking the amp! Definitely sucked to let the Vetta II go, but it was time to move on.

I would go with the X3 live. It's basically the XT incl. all update packages and you will be able to run a bass or vocal through it to. Another pro is that with the 2 rig questions you can even run for example a guitar and a bass, guitar and volcal and so on at the same time.

Go for the X3 if you can. I just don't really need/use it for the extra stuff in it, so I didn't bother. If you think you would, go for it.

You can get the expansions for the XT anyway...but there's no difference in the models or anything.

If you are going to use distortion pedals in the loop, then why not keep the GT-8. I have an X3 and don't use the loop. But I've read where people think the loop is noisy. I know the loop on the GT-8 works great with pedals because I used to use mine that way.

The xt live is also entirely metal there fore more durable (if ur a giging musician like myself that's important) I've heard people with problems with the x3 parts breaking. But both are great, can't go wrong with either.

X3 Deffo.

The dual amp sim is REALLY usefull if you're recording (instant double track) And it just sound better, the extra amp models are really good and it just has the extra features that are very handy

I'd also like to point out that the only thing that's plastic is the panel with the parameter knobs and the Expression pedal, the part with the switches is completely metal and mine has been holding up great.
