    In some ways, I do like the Floor POD's simplicity and in other ways I like the stomp boxes that the RP250 models as well. Hard decisions!

    Indeed!! That's why it's so hard to recommend a "best" device. I think some people would be overwhelmed by the RP250, and others would find the Floor POD limiting.

    Personally, I thought I would find the Floor POD much more limiting than I do. IMHO I think Line 6 has done a good job of narrowing down the options to the "greatest hits" of what a POD can do. It's hard to get "bad" sounds out of the unit.

      Does the Floor POD have a good bypass or not?

      I'm editing the audio examples I recorded right now, after which I'll test out the bypass. Good point to bring up, thanks!

        Here's the Chorus effect with an amp model (I forget which one, sorry). I did this example in stereo because that's necessary to give the full effect.

        I like the "12-string" effect that you get from this particular chorus.

          ...And if you're going to do a chorus, you should do a flanger too

            While we're on the subject of things that go "swoosh," here's the phaser. I like the "thick" sound quality.

              I probably shouldn't have played this when I was so tired, but hey, you'll get the idea of what the effect can do. If you listen "in the spaces," you'll hear the subtle filter change on the delayed sound.

                The reverb only has one "sound" -- you can't vary decay time, damping, or anything other than the reverb mix. But it sounds pretty muscular for a reverb.

                  Can you prove/disprove this review from the review section:

                  I need to edit this review! I use a MexiStrat HSS with custom pickups I ordered from the American Lone Star Fat Strat.. My review on this unit was a bit premature, and I apologize.. Though I do love the feel, color, and ease of use with Line6's Floor Pod, I found that there was an incessant high pitch I could not get around (I mentioned to solve it by turning the tone button down on the guitar.. this was a mistake). After more testing, I found that even in BYPASS mode, my strat lost a good part of it's low to midrange (testing it by going straight into amp, then through the POD using bypass mode)..


                  Does the Floor POD have a good bypass or not?


                  Well, I thought I'd find out

                  I set up the following test: I recorded a track of guitar into Sonar, with the brightest pickup position I could find so that any loading would be evident, directly into the Instrument input of the TC Konnekt 24D interface (the subject of another Pro Review). This is about as honest a preamp as you'll find, and provides virtually no loading of the guitar pickups.

                  I then plugged the guitar into the Floor POD, set it to bypass, patched the output of the Floor POD into the same input of the Konnekt 24D, and recorded another track. I tried to play both sections as similarly as possible.

                  I then split the clips into 3-second intervals and alternated clips. The first three seconds of the audio example are the Floor POD going direct into the Konnekt 24D, the next three seconds into the bypassed POD, the next three seconds direct into the Konnekt 24D, and the final three seconds into the bypassed POD. Let me know if you can hear any difference, and furthermore, whether you would have even known the example was split into four separate parts if I hadn't mentioned it.

                    Wento to GC and tried the Floor POD out into a Peavey Classic30 with a Fender Strat:

                    I really liked the Class A models the best. Real raunchy and bluesy.

                    The Clean and Classic were very good as well. I really don't use High Gain but they were ok.

                    The delays and reverb were very nice as well.

                    I could not get the Modulation EFX to change mode in a preset. If it was on Chorus I could not get it to change to Phaser or Tremelo.

                    Wah was ok.

                    I wish you could access the tuner from the footswitch.

                    I would pay $150 for it but not $199.......

                    Oh, and it seemed to sound better using the AIR setting instead of the Amp setting to the Classic30

                      I'm not sure what you mean by this...I could call up a preset and change from whatever effect was programmed to a different effect just by turning the knob. Or was there something else you wanted to do with it?

                        I was playing a preset. The EFX light was on chorus. I turned the knob and it would only change the chorus/flange effect thru the whole sweep. It did not change to Tremelo or Phaser at all. May have been a glitch on the GC floor model. Only when I scrolled thru the presets and found on with the Phaser light on would that effect be on, and then I could not get it to change to Chorus or Tremelo.

                        Wierd.

                        I thought the knob would rotate thru all three effects.

                          So you can't access either the tuner or the tap tempo from a footswitch? That's kind of dissapointing...I wonder why? Those are two things I'd really want to be able to use without hunching down onstage. The sounds all sound great, but that sort of limits its usefulness, in my opinion.

                            It should, and it does on the one I'm testing. Each of the three lights should light up when you're in its "zone."

                              Something was messed up then with the demo unit at Guitar Center then....

                              Otherwise, I do like the simplicity of the Floor POD and it does sound pretty good.

                                Between manual mode, edit mode, performance mode, coffeemaker mode, perhaps you were in the wrong mode?
