    I go one of these for my birthday. I am a fan of the Boss modelling sounds but I wanted to try something different. I like the way the Podxt live looks, but I can't decide whether it's an instrument or toy. All I know is that is makes you play a lot (too many) notes:

    I used my good old faithfull 82 Smith Strat for the occasion.

    thanks for watching.

    The legs made it impossible for me to watch for long... :eek:

    But, once I closed my eyes, it was very enjoyable.

    thanks Pierre. I guess it sounds better recorded than in real life.

    thanks. Sure, as soon as I figure out how to send a patch.:joThe backing was posted by our fellow user Normster and I think it was titled "Cm Blues Jazz".

    Hi Marin,

    If you've only just started with the pod, then you probably have not yet investigated the online tools available. There is a program called Line 6 Edit which is free. You can upload to the pod patches and download to disk those you've edited as well. The Line 6 edit tool is really an interface to the pod so that you can edit with the computer. It's a great tool and there are links to hundreds of patches you can upload and test.

    Here is the place to start:

    Good luck!

    Hey Jim,

    I've worked all that out, but I can't work out where the patches are stored on the HD. Do you know where they are?

    thanks

    I have not played with the utility for quite some time, but you can always do a search on your HD with a wildcard for the extention if you don't know it such as mypatch.* and I'm sure the operating system will figure out where it landed.

    I just opened up line 6 edit and found that the files are in a folder in the my documents folder:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Jim Heidinger\My Documents\Line 6\Tones\Line 6 Edit

    See if you have them stored there.

    I've owned my pod for about 6 months now and NOW I know what I'm supposed to be doing with it! :D

    Great playing, and thanks for the vid!
