What bassist doesn't like effects? Bass POD XT Live's got a bunch of great Stomp, Mod and Delay/Verb effects sounds adapted from Line 6's DM4 Distortion Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, and DL4 Delay Modeler pedals. And, there are some brand spankin' new models that come straight from our flagship combo, Vetta II.
But what fun are a bunch of effects if you can't wire them up in bizarre and unusual ways? Fortunately, with Bass POD ® XT Live, you can. Its flexible routing lets you mix and match up to 6 marvelous effects simultaneously. When using an amp model, you can even choose to put some PRE, and some POST. Who says you can get too much of a good thing?

Bass POD ® XT Live has a simple, gig-ready setup that's adaptable to all your different stage and studio needs. Whether you're running it as a multi-effect pedal in front of a bass amp (or into its FX loop), or straight to the house PA, Bass POD XT Live is the best way to take total control of your sound at the gig.
USB - Bass POD XT Live's USB jack lets you connect to most computers and record Bass POD XT Live directly to a wide variety of popular digital recording software packages. We've even included a USB cable to get you started. You can get the required driver software and easily get it installed along with any other Bass POD XT Live -related computer stuff by using the free Line 6 Monkey software, which you can download at www.line6.com/monkey .
Variax Digital Input - Connect a Line 6 Variax ® Bass here, and experience a whole new world of possibility and sound-control power. In addition to a direct digital audio connection between the bass and Bass POD XT Live, you can have the Variax change sounds each time you choose a new Channel Memory from Bass POD XT Live's footswitches or SELECT knob. And, you can even tweak the sound of your Variax Bass tone with Bass POD XT Live's built-in pedal!
MIDI In & Out - Connect Bass POD XT Live to your MIDI equipment to select Channel Memories (via Program Change messages), or automate Bass POD XT Live settings (via controllers and/or SySex).
Phones - When you want to listen with headphones, plug them in here. Bass POD XT Live automatically switches to Studio Mode whenever headphones are connected.
Output To Amp/Line - The unbalanced 1/4-inch connectors here get Bass POD XT Live feeding into the front of a bass amp, otherwise, choose LINE. The rear panel LEVEL knob sets the output level. Changing the OUTPUT level does not change your tone, so you can get the tone you want at any volume level.
The MODEL connector gives you the fully processed Amp+Cab+Effects+Mic signal generated by Bass POD XT Live. The D.I. connector gives you an unprocessed time- and phase-aligned version of your signal.
Aux Input - Connect a CD player, MP3 player, drum machine, virtual accordion, or other device here, and you'll hear it at Bass POD XT Live's headphone and Amp/Line outputs. Very handy for jamming along!
Input - Your bass goes here. Set the switch to norm for use with most passive pickup instruments. If you have to put two 9-volt batteries in your bass to make it rock, flip the switch to pad to prevent overdriving Bass POD XT Live's input in an unpleasant-sounding way.
Pedal 2 - You can add even more real-time control by connecting a standard expression pedal, such as the Line 6 EX-1. You'll be able to control Wah, Volume, and Tweak functions all at the same time!
When you’re playing on stage with Bass POD® XT Live, you’ve got a choice of setups. Bass PODXT Live can be in between your bass and a bass amplifier so Bass PODXT Live acts as a tone-shaping front end for the amp. You can also plug straight out of Bass PODXT Live’s outputs into the house system for awesome amp and effect tone without the hassle of mics and cabinets.
Or you can choose to run Bass PODXT Live into a power amp and speaker cabinets, using it as the ultimate preamp. Whichever setup you choose, all you have to do is dial it up the right setting in Bass PODXT Live.
What are you connecting to?
STUDIO DIRECT - When plugging Bass PODXT Live straight into a P.A., or using in-ear monitoring systems, select STUDIO DIRECT for amazing amp and effect tone, night after night. Line 6’s exclusive A.I.R. II processing serves up a virtual speaker-cabinet-air-microphone experience so good you may never use a regular bass amplifier and microphone on stage again. You’re as powerful as the entire P.A. — and guaranteed to be in the mix!
LIVE W HORN, LIVE W H EQ, LIVE NO HORN, LIVE NO H EQ - Choose one of these settings when plugging into a combo amp, head and bass cabinets, or power amp and bass cabinets. Choose LIVE NO HORN or LIVE NO H EQ if your system doesn’t have a horn or high frequency driver, or you’ve chosen to turn them off on your speaker cabinet. Choose the LIVE W HORN or LIVE W H EQ option if your system includes a horn or other high frequency driver. The Mic component of A.I.R. is turned off, and the Cabinet Models are revoiced to sound their best coming through the kind of setup you choose. The two “with EQ” modes also give you Tone Correction controls.
What is Tone Correction?
The idea of these Tone Correction controls is to adjust Bass PODXT Live’s overall sound to compensate for the tonal response of the preamp section of the amp that you’re plugging into. We’ve found that it is often necessary to reduce the low frequency or high frequency parts of the Bass PODXT Live to get decent results in this sort of a configuration, or shift the focus of the mid frequencies, so that’s what these controls are set to do.
Bi-Amp Mode - Bass PODXT Live includes a Bi-Amp Mode. Bi-Amping is the technique of using a crossover to split a signal into its higher frequency and lower frequency portions, and sending each frequency range to a different amplification system. Lows would typically be sent to a power amp setup with lots of wattage and large diameter speakers, while highs would be sent to smaller diameter speakers and/or horns. Bass PODXT Live’s Bi-Amp Mode includes selectable slope and frequency.
