The set up I use with this pedal consists of a Jackson guitar, a Boss Loop Station and a Line 6 100 watt amp. Personally I have had no problems due to my set up, I rarely get feed back due to the pedals great noise gate. I like to play a lot of different music from metal to blues to ballads and the pedal can handle them all. What I think is really cool is that if you don't want to try and make a patch for your favorite song you can just go to the line6 website and download a patch made by Line 6 or, you can download one from the public tone exchange forum in which you can trade, download and post the patches you create. Every one of the Effects on this pedal is amazing and they never stop amazing me. Although there is one thing that could be done a little better and that is the wah, I think it could be a little thicker but that is just personal Preference.
Overall Impression — 9
Well this pedal certainly has a load of effects for all sorts of different types of music and yet more you can download and buy. My overall impression of this pedal is that it is Great, I would buy another if thing one was lost or stolen. When I went to by this pedal I had to Pick between this and a Boss ME-50 and I picked this pedal because it stood out. Thanks for reading my review of this product, I hope I have helped you decide wether to get one or not.
Reliability & Durability — 8
The whole pedals casing is made from metal and is very sturdy, the foot buttons on the pedal are nice and big and are very tough, so if you get a bit carried away while jamming and give it a bit of a stomp you can rest assured that the pedal should be fine. The Volume/Wah Pedal is built very tough as well, unlike a lot of multi effect pedals line6 has gone out of the way and built this one out of metal. I think this is great because some times it can be very hard to be gentle on the wah pedal while doing a face melting solo. All of the knobs on the pedal have a small metal bar which stops you from bumping or kicking them. I think that this is great because a lot of pedals have all their knobs right next to the foot switches which in the past has caused me trouble. And I do and will continue to take this to gigs with out a back up.

Hey guys I got the PODXT Live new about 4 months ago and I am yet to have any problems with it here are my thoughts on it. you will surprised how easy it is to edit and create patches on this pedal when using the computer software, is it possible to make almost any sound you want. But the same cannot be said about trying to edit patches with out the software as it can become very hard to find your way around with only the tiny screen to see information on. This could be easily fixed in the next model with a bigger screen but over all I find it very easy to create and edit patches using the pedal its-self and the computer software software. I found the manual for this pedal awesome, it tells you every thing from what amps and effects they modeled to the history of each amp and effect they modeled. Over all the PODXT Live is relatively easy to use. The only thing that I would change would be the Screen size, if it was a little bit bigger.
