bass pod VS bass pod pro

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by AllodoX, Nov 16, 2001.

  1. What's the difference in these two in terms of sound-quality etc ?
  2. I literally just came on now to ask that exact same question. So yeah, to any who knows, help us out.

    hey allodox. i don't believe there to be any difference in sound quality between the 2. there may be some additional amps/cabs/effects on the pro, but i am not sure at all about that. possibly that is just raving rumors by a madman. the only difference that i know of, is that the pro-version is rack-mountable...
  4. The BassPod Pro has allot more features then the BassPod. Like An Effects loop, drive control, additional effects, Higher sound quality, more user patches... It's just the top of the line.

    well, according to their website, they are pretty much identical, in regards to the number of effects, user presets, cabs, amps, etc. (i checked after my earlier post). the only difference that was stated was the di. that being said, i was sure i had read or heard that there were more features on the pro (aside from bigfeet's post)...

    I know the Pro has a digital S/PDIF output, does the regular Pod have that as well? (I'm too tired to dig through specs right now.)

    The Pro version has digital out. The other one doesn't. Also, the Pro has the ability to sync to a word clock.

    I don't use any of these features on mine, but it's good to have on hand just in case. In terms of sound quality, they are both identical.

    I have been using a POD pro for a about a year or more.

    IT has effects loop.

    It is has the digital out as well as parrallel hiZ/low Z out. This allows you to send a DI signal to the board with cabinet modeling and a hiZ to a power amp/cabinet that doesn't have speaker cabinet modeling.

    It also has a very good built-in tuner.

    Another very cool feature is that it can be switched from instrument level input to line level so you can "re-amp." That is, you can take a recorded track, loop it through the POD Pro and apply amp modeling to the track in post-production. Basically play it once right to record and then decide which amp you want it to sound like.

    I am not sure that the regular POD has a compressor. The Pro compressor is pretty good and not breathy at all.

    While all of this stuff is nice, the main reason I went with the pro is the rack mount. I have lugged it for more than a year and it still looks new.

    The manual for it is available at the Line6 site.

    i believe the pod is 24 bit and the pro is 36 bit... or something, maybe its 16-24.. but the digital quality is higher on the pro... i don't know what the actual sound difference is.. but it looks better on paper..
