so i just got a large cheque for my tax rebate and i want a multi effects processor with the most tonal applications. I really need something that is a little less metal'y and more tube'y, i really like the warm sound of tube amps but i live in an apartment with 2 other guys and a real tube amp really isnt an option..... so i come to my question. Boss gt-10 or pod 3live xt, the live i would prefer because the amp modeling options are < the boss but im afraid it wont do what it says because the spider 3's sound is so very digital. Halp?

the pod is way tubier than a spider, higher quality all the way
however, against the boss, its a tough call, see if you can try them out and compare them

Are you talking about the POD X3 or POD XT? Cause there's a pretty large difference.


Either way, I'd rather have the POD

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

the x3 i think the newer one, and even over the looping part of the boss gt-10?

I didn't even know the GT-10 had a looper, but IMO the POD is easier to use and sounds better

Check out my band page in my sig. The boss GT-8 was used for distortion on some of the recordings. I can't remember which songs unfortunately, but hey Maybe it can give you a better idea of the Boss GT-10 sound in a mix.

I don't know, we've gotten good results with the Boss...but I think the POD has more versatility and applications. I'd go with that myself.

Pod X3. Best thing you can get unless you take out the big bugs and buy a vetta or a axe-fx. Meshuggah used to record and play live with Pod on some records. Then they used Vetta IIs (Pod X3 is pretty close soundwise) and now Axe-FX. So I say Pod X3.

I also got a short recording one my profil. (called Riff A) I thing it sound pretty damn good and tube-ish.

My vote goes for the X3 Live. Another thing to consider when buying multi fx units are the output options (amp/monitor/speaker/headphones/PA). Boss multi fx are known for needing an amp to get the best sound (JC-120 is a standard).

I am alo looking at both units, now leaning toward the Pod x3 live

i have the pod x3 live, had the same problem as you back during thanksgiving, the boss will definitely take you awhile to get used to, and even then it comes out somewhat the same as the x3 live. sound wise they are both very respectful
