    I just got back from GC where I tried out the new
    BassPODxt. I was very impressed. It seems bass fx units are
    just getting better and better. I like this more than any
    other unit I've tried (Boss GT6B, BassPOD [huge
    impovement], Korg PX4B, Digitech BNX3). The models
    sound very good, their as close as I've heard to the real
    thing out of an FX box. Even if they aren't perfect replicas
    of the real amps they all sound very nice. I had the unit
    going through a poweramp into an Ampeg 4x10 cab so I
    didn't bother with the cab models. On to the FX. WOW. With
    any fx unit their are always some that you'll never use, but
    there are lots (over 50) to choose from. Many great
    distortions, chorus's, flanges, and more. Even the fretless
    sim isn't bad, though it's no substitute for a real fretless.
    There are lots of synths as well, and they all track very well.
    There are many to choose from but most give you gritty/
    dirty type synth sounds. And finnaly my fav the Auto Wah. I
    loved it. far better than any digital auto wah I've tried.
    Really funky IMHO. I only played around with it for about an
    hour so I didn't get into alot of tweeking. I'm sure I only
    touched the surface of what this unit can do. I'm definatly
    going to get one soon. The only drawback is the price.
    $400 and $700 for the rackmount version, and another
    $260 for the footcontroller. Not cheap but as I always say
    you get what you pay for. If your serious about having a
    modeler with great tone and great FX then spend the cash
    ou won't be disappointed. Check out Line6s website for all
    the info. You can even download the manual. But even
    more importantly go to your local shop and try it yourself.
