This Line 6 Pod X3 Pro is in great shape, hardly any show of wear. For the condition this piece is priced to move!
From Sound on Sound Magazine:
Line 6 follow their Pod X3 and X3 Live processors with this rackmount professional version, the X3 Pro, offering enhanced I/O and dual processing.
In true Line 6 tradition, they’ve followed their Pod X3 and X3 Live processors with a rackmount professional version, the X3 Pro ($979.99 MSRP), which has enhanced I/O and a few capabilities not provided on the standard ‘kidney’ or X3 Live floor-unit versions. It features the same Dual Tone architecture as the X3, which means that you can set up two different effect/amp/speaker cab rigs at the same time and combine them. Alternatively, you can process two completely separate guitars, basses or voices using one processor channel for each — something not possible with the standard version.
You also get the Pod Farm plug‑in (see SOS Jan 09), which essentially provides all the X3 facilities in the form of a Mac or Windows plug‑in, or as a latency‑free stand-alone ‘virtual processor’ without the need for a DAW. The hardware acts as the ‘dongle’ for Pod Farm and makes the latency‑free processing possible: as long as the Pod is connected to the computer, the Pod Farm software will run as a plug‑in. You can still use another interface if you prefer, but for direct USB recording from the Pod or for latency‑free processing using Pod Farm, the Pod (or other suitable Line 6 interface) must be selected as the DAW’s I/O device, or be part of a composite audio driver. You can also use the Pod X3 Pro as a computer interface for a Line 6 Variax guitar, enabling you to create new guitars using the free Variax Workbench software.
The Pod Pro X3 uses 24‑bit A-D and D-A converters, and the internal processing employs 32‑bit floating‑point arithmetic — which is the same as in many DAWs. Up to nine simultaneous effects per signal chain can be used, with effects split between pre‑the‑amplifier (stomp) and post‑amp (send loop). DAW users will welcome the fact that the Pod X3 family’s USB 2.0 connectivity supports multi‑channel recording and stereo playback without the need for an additional interface, and there’s also a digital Variax connection that allows a Variax guitar to be connected in such a way that X3 Pro presets can store the Variax settings alongside those of the X3 — so a performer can call up the right guitar and pickup combination with each Pod preset.
