From Sound on Sound:
PodXT Pro offers the same amp/cab modelling and effects facilities as the standard PodXT model, but adds more professional connectivity options. The user can now select from guitar, line, S/PDIF, or AES/EBU inputs (there are two channels in the digital format which mix to mono if both are used together), the additional options being useful for re-amping an existing recording or for processing the output of a synthesizer. Supported sample rates are 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz and 96kHz and the resolution may be either 16, 20 or 24-bit. As with the XT, there's also a USB port for connection to a computer, enabling recordings to be made without the need for a soundcard.
Outputs are provided as unbalanced analogue outs on quarter-inch jacks, balanced XLRs (selectable between -10dBV and +4dBu), S/PDIF phonos and AES/EBU XLRs. A further jack carries the unprocessed guitar output signal (useful both on stage and in the studio where the PodXT Pro is being used in conjunction with another guitar processor or amplifier), plus there are stereo effects sends and returns on individual jacks. That leaves the Ethernet-style floor controller connector plus the USB port which, in addition to its audio transfer capabilities, may also be used for editing and patch transfer via a Mac or PC, or for accessing Line 6's on-line subscription services (PC only) normally accessed via the company's Guitar Port. When used with the on-line guitar tutorials, patch data is loaded directly into the unit, as opposed to the Guitar Port where the computer powers the amp modelling. The same software that works with the Guitar Port also now serves as an on-screen editor for the PodXT and PodXT Pro. MIDI In and Out/Thru connectors are fitted to the rear panel, and power comes directly from the mains.
The DSP engine utilises amp and cabinet modelling algorithms developed for Line 6's latest Vetta modelling amplifiers and combines these with a number of effects, many taken from their Modeler range. The PodXT Pro also benefits from the much-improved user interface of the PodXT, whereby on-screen 'virtual' knobs show both the stored data positions and the physical position of the front-panel knobs. The majority of the controls are identical to those on the PodXT reviewed back in SOS January 2003.
