    I was wondering what the worst effects are on the PODxt Live. I've heard the synth & octaver are not the best. Also heard a little complaining about the envelope filter.

    Any comments appreciated.

    I was rather underwhelmed with the unit in general.

    I feel the need to put in my two cents before the inevitable pod-bashing that is to come.

    I have a Podxt Live and I love everything about it. The amp and cab modeling have done a world of good for my tone, with no lag to speak of. Also, the direct USB recording is excellent.

    As far as effects go, I happen to love the overdrive, compression, noise gating, chorusing and echoes on it. I haven't had much experience with the octavers and phasers, as I am not a very effects-oriented player.

    The synth, however, is complete crap. It doesn't track well at all, even on the high notes. This doesn't matter so much to me, but don't buy this unit with the intent of using the synth.
