    I love my Bass Pod Xt...still. :)
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Apr 25, 2019
    Build Quality:
    • + Infinite tweakability
    • + Good used prices
    • - No XLR outs like Bass Pod XT Pro
    • - No longer suported
    • - Really need a footswitch if changing patches
    I've had my Bass Pod Xt for years now and it has never let me down. Are there "better" modelers out there? Probably. The Line 6 Helix and HX line are getting a lot of attention these days as well as Fractal, Kemper etc.
    But if you're patient and tweak and believe me you can tweak on this thing! You can be rewarded by some great sounds, at least to my ears. Well and Robert DeLeo from Stone Temple Pilots. He's still using his Bass Pod XT Pro's as his main gigging rig!
    Do the amps sound like the real thing? I don't know. I've only owned a few of the ones listed. There are some great effects as well. Chorus, flanger, delays and some good drive and fuzz sims as well. For those you just need to blend in a bit of your DI signal which you can do. Some folks aren't aware of that but its right there under your finger tips. I think it still holds up today. What I usually do when making a preset is select an amp sim that might be close to what tone your are thinking of. Select a similar cab and then tweak the EQ. You can even add a 6 band semi parametric eq if you wish to help with sculpting your tone. Effects and drive to taste. You can send a modeled out or DI out to the board or into your amp. You can even use the headphone out(fully processed) as well as a third option.
