Hi

I am a beginner and I use Yamaha Pacifica 112 with fender Mustang amp.
I need some effects as the amp itself doesnt give me much variety.

I was looking for Line6 Pod XT live but it is too costly so I started looking at Pod XT instead. Can someone tell me negatives of Pod XT compared to XT live?

Basically, XT has the same sounds, but no footswitches to change & control effects while playing. XT Live has those footswitches.

There may be some other minor differences.

EDIT: If you're only looking for effects, I don't recommend a Pod because then youre paying for amp modelling too.

This really wouldn't be a good solution, I wouldn't buy either of them. What effects do you need that your mustang is missing?
#4
XT has no provision for switching patches with your feet.

Doesn't the Mustang already have built in effects?

I think I am confused. Mustang has inbuilt effects but I am unable to get Satriani/Petrucci/etc kind of tone.
I think I need amp modeling and not effects (correct me if I am wrong). I need thick, smooth, blues tones and these are not obtained from Mustang. Only effects are obtained from mustang and the overall tone type remains same.

I need tones like :

while I get tones only like

What do I need?

You won't be able to get a satriani/petrucci tone by running a POD into a mustang either. Save your money and keep experimenting with the mustang. Are you using the Fender Fuse software? I hear that it is much easier to dial in tones with that.
