Connect your Pocket POD® directly into your amp or PA system, and transform your sound with perfect tone and all the amp modeling and effects only found on POD.

The headphone jack out allows you to practice anywhere without disturbing the neighbors, and the CD/MP3 jack gets you jamming along with your favorite bands.

Practice anywhere! Pocket POD runs off 4 AAA batteries. A 9V DC power plug is great for when you're not on the go. 5" long by 3 1/2" wide by 2" deep, and weighs in at a mere 6 oz, Pocket POD is your completely portable multi-effects solution.

Pocket POD comes with a USB to USB Mini cable connection. "Deep dive" into all your tone details using the Vyzex software. Create your own custom tone or manage your personal tone library right on your desktop. (Pocket POD is a class compliant USB MIDI device. You will not be able to directly record over a USB connection.)

Product Description

Try saying that five times fast! Seriously though, the pint-sized Pocket POD packs plenty of pizzaz. Even as tons of other effects makers line up to shove their massive "me-too" multi-effects monstrosities in your face, the legend of Line 6 lingers on with their littlest POD ever. What's all in this miniature modeling marvel, you ask? Line 6 loaded this larger-than-life device with 32 awesome amps, 16 crazy cabs, 16 excellent effects, and over 300 powerful presets to pump up your sound. Hook up headphones and jam out — the Pocket POD's even got great practice tools built right in, including a tuner and an aux in so you can jam with tunes. Plus, the Pocket POD comes equipped with a USB connection so you can edit your tones on your computer and access the ever-growing library of well over 3,000 killer tones. And because the Pocket POD runs for hours and hours on only four AAs, you can rock out with your POD anywhere, anytime.

This is a great device for all the sounds it can produce.

There are some features you can't manipulate unless you plug it into a computer and use their software, doesn't bother me though.

If it breaks or disappoints in any way I will come back and update this review, but as of now, I would highly recommend it.

Having owned other Line6 hardware and having good experiences with this I bought this device to take to work and jam at on my lunch break. I regret this decision....

First, the good things. It sounds pretty decent if you like to play rock or metal. Its not great, but for jamming along with your mp3 player and practicing it works perfect. There are a ton of different sounds you can coax out of this device. Other people have complained about the interface but I don't have any troubles with it. There are some features you can't manipulate unless you plug it into a computer and use their software, doesn't bother me though. Its portable and runs on batteries. All you need is your guitar, cable, and headphones. Back-lit screen is nice and legible.

The bad: The modulation effects are pretty cheesy and digital sounding. Eats batteries very quickly Clean sounds are just meh, but if you aren't using it for recording it should be fine.

Here my main beef: The build quality of this device is not up to normal Line6 standards. It is very flimsy cheapo plastic. I'm still wondering where the real Line6 device is because this seems like a crappy cheap Chinese copy of a Line6 device. I dropped mine onto indoor carpeting and the screen cracked, making it unusable. Line6 considers this device to be consumable and will not help you fix it. They tell you to use their authorized service center to repair...ok, I contact every single one on the list and they all tell me the same thing, deal with Line6 directly. So I try, and Line6 tells you to use an authorized service center... I don't like being treated like this and playing these games. I broke it an am willing to pay for a repair but they just want me to buy a new one.

This thing is great for practicing with head phones. The wide variety of sounds make for a more authentic practice session (so when you're playing U2 songs, you don't sound like ACDC and vice versa) and makes practicing more fun.

The only big downside is that it sucks down power like nobody's business. I bought four high-end AAA batteries and the Pod ate them in a about a week of playing for less than 2 hours a night. Furthermore, the manual states that only non-rechargeable batteries (or the optional AC adapter) should be used. I now plan to buy the Line 6 DC1, which is line 6's 9 volt adapter, from Amazon soon.

Another, much smaller downside is that the real manual is only available in PDF format from Line 6's web site. But if you're at Amazon, you probably have an internet connection.

While getting the manual, you should probably also download Vyzex, which is Line 6's software for editing the tones from the Pocket Pod. This software isn't absolutely necessary for using the Pocket pod, but it does make editing tones somewhat easier, and it also allows the use of download tones (which work somewhat like synthesizer patches.) I also think the software could be better designed.

Still, I'm very pleased with the product. When you consider it's cost versus the cost of an amp head, plus stomp boxes, etc., the variety of amps and effects modeled, and the fact that the Pocket Pod doesn't take up much space at all, it's a great deal, especially someone like me who practices in an apartment.

The Pocket Pod does indeed create an incredible variety of tones for the guitar, and it can make even a cheap Danelectro sound like many different (and much more expensive) instruments. While accessing all this power from the Pocket Pod itself is a bit awkward, it can be more easily programmed and experimented with using the downloadable Vyzex software, which displays a virtual control panel with immediate access to most settings. When everything is working, the Pocket Pod is a joy and is downright inspirational to work with.

Unfortunately, both the hardware and the software are rather rough around the edges. My first Pocket Pod had a loud 60Hz hum and ate batteries even when it wasn't plugged in, so it was replaced under warranty by Line 6 (it took over two weeks to get the replacement, however). My current unit works better, but every so often the 4-way switch ceases to function. More mystifying are glitches with the Vyzex software. First, very few of the USB ports on my computer will recognize the Pocket Pod, and I'm not sure that even the ones that appear to work really function properly. I found that getting the Pocket Pod and software to function properly often requires several restarts of the Vyzex program with the Pocket Pod attached. Moreover, even when the software appears to be functioning, it will usually start to throw various glitches as the session progresses. For example, the volume level will often change unpredictably in the middle of a run, or the mouse position will become erroneously detected when operating the screen interface, or certain effects unpredictably become unavailable. Thus the software has to be shut down and restarted constantly when using this system.
