In this old interview with Reine Fiske, after releasing Dungen's album Tio Bitar, he claims almost all of the guitar's are recorded with the Line 6 POD XT. He also says this choice contradicts with his passion for vintage gear, but it still "just works" combined with the other vintage preamps and fuzz pedals.more
Lots of different pedals, amps, and other sound effects inside of the unit to approximate a certain sound you'd like. Highly functional- especially the tuner that's included. It can be overwhelming at first but after a few rounds of noodling around with the unit, it becomes intuitive to use. Great for studio work.
Second generation of Line 6's modeling solution Pretty versatile to get a lot of basic amp sounds. Some effects are workable, some sound clearly digital. It's really picky about its voltage.
The screen no longer works, but I run the aux outs of my Ion into the Pod XT so I can mix the wet/dry signal manually live, rolling in the distortion when needed.
