POD Patches

Many of you have asked me about my Pod patches, here they are:

Pod XTL - Download the patches
I used to use a Pod XTL, but recently switched to the Pod X3L. I use bank 1 in church.I also keep reverb down to under 20% because my church is quite big, with plenty of natural reverberation.

POD X3L - Download the patches
The tones can be found in banks 32A-D:
32A: crunch tone for slow songs
32B: lead tone
32C: heavier crunch tone for fast songs
32D: clean tone

The pedal toggles the level of distortion, sort of (its set to pre, not post), for 32A-C. There are some modulation effects that I use also, like the tremolo for 32D, and flanger for 32C. Enjoy!






Note that the volume is set to pre and not post as most people set it. This makes the pedal like the volume knob, and sets the distortion to different levels.

You will, of course, need to adapt the tones to your own needs. E.g. if you're using a strat you might need more drive, and bass. If you're playing with another guitarist you might need to lower the drive settings, and if you're playing in a small room you will need to add more reverb.

kenny said...

CornMonkey said...

sweet...can't wait to get home to download these. i love my XTLive.

Diederik said...

ok, that's nice :)
so i can use all the patches ;)

dave said...

thanks heaps for these man....so you mentioned you use banks 1 & 2 for church...does this mean the rest are not really made for direct through PA??

the lost soul said...

All of them are ok for going direct.. just that I haven't found any use for them in church.. or I haven't spent much time tweaking them to their full potential..

Trevor said...

hey kenny, when i open up ur patches for the pod, it just says american punk. how do i see ur other patches from banks 1-2 on ur pod xtl?

kenny said...

American punk is a default patch in the pod.. did you use line6 edit to open it? if you double click on it in line 6 edit i think you can see all the patches.

Anonymous said...

thanx so much! i cant wait to try them out

Jon said...

these are my patches i use for Hillsong.
The Vox AC30 is mostly for what Michael Guy Chislett does, but is probably the most versatile. The Mesa/Boogie Mark II is mostly for Jad Gillies parts. They are all based off of the United Guitars myspace.

Would love to check these patches out! Unfortunately, my church has us play through v-amp2 (or the v-amp pro). :(

Anyone with good patches similar to those posted that I can use??

once I download the patches...How do I get it on to my POD?

kenny said...

Get the editor from the line 6 website, hook up your pod to your computer, and download the patches to your pod.

dyunh said...

Hi Kenny,

Would it be possible to also create a hillsong patch for those users who chose GT8 instead of the POD XTL? (like what settings you used in your XTL so we can duplicate it on our GT8).

Cheers! God Bless!

dyunh said...

:) I didn't notice the ppt on the download area and was able to replicate (I hope) some of the patches you are using to my gt-8. I'll be sharing the settings once I completed all of the modification on the patches.

Cheers!

Jared said...

wayne said...

Excuse me,I've downloaded the patch,but when I clicked it,it says"the file could not be loaded because it is either corrupted or in an unsupported format"why?

Hey great site. I just got an X3 live a week ago. I love it. I tried the Xt too but think the X3 is worth the extra cash (especially if you play guitar & bass).

Anonymous said...

Chase said...

Hey Kenny,

Man i just want to say, thanks you have helped me so much with my guitar playing skills. But i was wondering if you could tell me. The patches that you made, did you put the song names on there like for example Stand or What the world never take. Because i don't know what to use for some songs i really appreciate all of you guys.

God Bless
Chase

Jason said...

mrmusicmaninthe530 said...

hey can someone help me find some hillsong bass patches for the podx3 live jus to mess with them and compare them to my created ones? thanks

TJB said...

Hey..I know you go direct with the X3..I as well..I'm wondering what you use for a monitor are you using the wedges with everyone in there or are you using an amp...or what..I'm using an amp but am having trouble making it sound the way I'm coming out of the house...and secondly what level do you set your master volume at for your patches..thanks that is all

Ken said...

How do I open the x3m file on the Mac? that format is not recognized....

Anonymous said...

Hey,
I lead the youth band at my church in Australia and am looking to buy a pod xt live to expand my playing a bit.
An x3 live is a bit out of my price range so that's why I'm going for the xtl, how do they compare?

Paul Christopher Sabarez said...

kenny, i just want to ask in your opinion what do you think is better a POD X3 live or POD HD500? and what is more practical to use. cause i'm a bit confused of what effects should i buy. tnx.

ken2012 said...

One of the key factors in chief what blazon of Replica IWC Watches technology to use for the armlet is comfort. The abundance of the armlet if the watch is beat on the wrist is ensured by the accomplished finishing of the bracelet. As anon as the 3D ancestor is created by the designers on the computer, the engineers jump in on the process.

keotes said...

Hi Kenny,

Thanks for sharing. Are you getting the new Pod HD range? I'm thinking of getting one and would love to be able to try some of your patches :)

DanShinFTW said...

hey if i downloaded the patches for the pod hd 500, would i still be able to use it on my pod hd 400? a quick response would be much appreciated :)
