|Poor quality Really nasty quality. When it arrived, I put batteries in, plugged in a guitar lead and it was dead. OK, so I tried new batteries.|

2 Display This is where Pocket POD will tell you whats going on. Youll see things like preset categories, preset names, control settings, Amp and Effect Model names, tuner readings, etc. 3 Drive This knob controls how hard youre driving the input of a chosen Amp Model, and just like the input volume control on a non-master volume guitar amp, higher settings give you more dirt. You can access the Bass tone control by holding down the Save button and turning the Drive knob. When you change Amp Models, the response and interactivity of this control changes. For example, when you select Black Panel, the tone controls operate like the original amp that Model was based on*, the Fender Deluxe Reverb. This also goes for the Mid and Treble tone controls described below. 4 Effects This knob varies the effect youve chosen. Turn it up and the effect will go deeper, louder, faster, longer or just plain more. To turn off the selected effect, turn this knob all the way down. The speed of the effect (delay, tremolo, chorus, flanger, rotary speaker simulation) is set by the Tap button (described below). If you choose the Bypass effect, the Effects knob will, of course, not change anything. Hold down the Save button and turn the Effects knob to access the Mid tone control. 5 Delay If youve chosen the Delay effect or a combo effect with delay, this knob sets the mix level of the Delay; left for min and right for max. If youre running a non-delay effect, turning this knob automatically loads the corresponding combo effect, then sets the mix level of the Delay. This knob doesnt do anything when you choose the Rotary effect. See Chapter 4 for more info. Hold down the Save button and turn the Delay knob to access the Treble tone control. 6 Chan Vol This knob controls the relative volume level of the channel you are playing through. Use this to balance levels between the sounds you store in the different Pocket POD memory locations. In general, you want to set the Chan Vol as high as

possible to ensure youre getting the best signal-to-noise ratio. Hold down the Save button and turn the Chan Vol knob to set the Reverb level. See Chapter 4 for more info. 7 Save/Hold for Alt Features When you want to store your own tweakedup sounds into one of the 124 User Preset locations, press this button. More info on how to save can be found in Chapter 2. This button also acts as a shift key press and hold while turning a knob or pressing the 4-way Button to access its secondary functions. Or, you can press this button for 2 seconds to lock the shift feature. This allows you to have direct control of the secondary functions without holding the Save button. If youve locked the shift feature, pressing the Tap button releases the lock and returns the unit to normal operation. 8 Tap/Hold For Tuner Tap this button a couple of times and the effect speed will match the speed you tapped. The light will blink at the current effect rate. Press and hold this button for more than 2 seconds to activate the tuner. Press again to exit tuner mode. See Chapter 2 for details.
9 CD/MP3 In This is the 1/8-inch stereo input where you plug the output of your CD or MP3 player into Pocket POD so you can jam along to your favorite tunes. To balance the music with your guitar youll need to adjust the output volume on your CD player or MP3 player. 10 Amp Out This is a mono 1/4-inch output that is perfect for connecting your Pocket POD to a guitar amp.
11 Direct Output/Phones OK, this should be easy. This is a stereo 1/8-inch output for headphones, a P.A. or recording device.
12 DC Input You can power Pocket POD here using the optional Line 6 DC-1 external power supply. The optional DC-1 provides 9.6 volts DC, 200 mA and has centernegative polarity. 13 Guitar guitar cable.
In Dude, plug in here. You should use only a standard, 1/4-inch mono
Youll notice that there is no power switch on Pocket POD. This is it! When you plug in, Pocket POD will automatically power-up. To extend the life of your batteries, its a good idea to unplug your guitar cable when youre not using it for a long time.
14 USB You can connect Pocket POD to your Macintosh or Windows computer via the included USB cable and itll automatically show up as a MIDI device. No drivers are needed! The USB connection also acts as a power switch as long as you have batteries installed or the DC-1 power supply connected, Pocket POD will come to life when you connect it to your computer via USB. However, keep in mind that the USB connection does NOT power or recharge your Pocket POD, so for maximum battery life, make sure and disconnect the USB cable when youre not using it for a long time. For tweak heads, the Vyzex Pocket POD editor/librarian software is available as a free download from www.line6.com/software. The program runs on Macintosh and Windows computers, and can turn your computer into a Pocket POD command station. It lets you take full control, and do everything that can be done from your Pocket
PODs front panel, plus a bunch of other cool stuff like saving and swapping sounds on the computer, as well as accessing many additional parameters that lurk deep within the heart of Pocket POD. Youll also want to visit www.line6.com/monkey to get Line 6 Monkey, the free intelligent software update utility that makes it easy to get the latest firmware updates for your Pocket POD. Use it to set up a Line 6 account and register your Pocket POD purchase (you can also use the enclosed, postage-paid card for registration if you dont have Internet access). Registering is important because it ensures that youre dialed in for warranty service and makes it possible for us to contact you if new firmware versions or other cool enhancements are offered cutting edge technology and such! Once youve got Line 6 Monkey, run it and follow Monkeys lead to get any available updates for your Pocket POD.
15 Battery Compartment Pocket POD can run off (4) AAA batteries. To install them, slide off the battery door, insert the batteries in the orientation shown, then slide the battery door back on. Make sure you only use non-rechargeable alkaline batteries and dispose of them properly when they run out of juice. A note about battery life. During normal use, Pocket POD will give you 4-6 hours of continuous use when running off good-quality AAA batteries. Battery life is directly related to the amount of effect processing youre using at any given time. In particular, Reverb tends to be the most power-hungry effect. If you want to get the longest battery
life possible, turn the Reverb knob to its minimum position to turn off the Reverb. Of course, only you can decide whether battery life is more important than great tone!
16 Belt Clip Use this handy clip to attach Pocket POD to your belt, guitar strap or anything else that makes it convenient for you to take great tone with you. Ever wonder what those small front pockets on your jeans are good for? Theyre the perfect place to clip your Pocket POD when youre on the go!
Presets & Tuner
Pocket POD includes over 300 presets to cover a wide range of tones and styles. Many presets have been dialed-in by some of todays influential artists! These presets store complete amp-and-effect selections and settings that you can call up at the touch of a button. Of these presets, there are 124 User Preset locations that you can use to store your own custom tones. With so many presets, we had to come up with a convenient way for you to browse through them all. So, the presets have been split up into the following Categories: Band These are the presets dialed-in by artists themselves. There are separate folders for each artist. These presets are read-only and cannot be erased, but they can be modified and saved to one of the 124 User Preset locations. Style Presets organized by style, instrument or song. Again, there are separate folders for each type. These too are read-only and cannot be erased, but can be modified and saved to one of the 124 User Presets. User 124 great-sounding presets that you can overwrite with your own custom tones. These presets are organized into 31 folders with 4 presets per folder. A Factory Reset (described later in this chapter) will restore these presets to their factory defaults. To recall a preset, use the 4-way Nav Button as shown below:
When recalling a preset, note that its settings will not be reflected by the present knob positions like you may have left the Drive knob at minimum whereas the just-recalled channel has this control set to max. To change anything, just grab a knob and tweak.
To recall a preset from a different category or different folder, press the Left button repeatedly until you get to the Browse By: screen, then use the 4-way Nav Button as before.
You can edit any of the Pocket POD presets or create one of your own and store it to one of the 124 User Preset locations. To save follow these steps: Press the Save button. The display will flash. If youve modified a User Preset, youll go to that User Presets location. If youve modified any other preset, youll go to User Preset location 01A. Use the Up or Down button to select the User Preset location where you want to store the new preset. Press the Save button. The display will stop flashing. If you want to rename the new preset, use the Left and Right buttons to pick a character and the Up and Down buttons to change that character. Press the Save button. All user controls are saved at their current state. To cancel a save, press the Tap button or allow the unit to have 5 seconds of inactivity since the last press of a button.
Press and hold the Tap button for 2 seconds to enter tuner mode. The display will briefly show the current Tuner Reference Frequency, then the Tuner Display. Play a note on your guitar and Pocket POD will show you the pitch and tuning in the display. All notes are displayed as naturals or flats, so youll see A instead of G and so on. The display will tell you whether youre sharp, flat or in tune as follows:
To exit tuner mode, press the Tap button.
Tuner Reference Frequency
When in Tuner Mode, you can change the tuner reference frequency by using the Delay knob. By default, the unit has a tuner reference frequency of A440, but it can be adjusted from A436 to A445. The display will show you the frequency selected. This setting is automatically saved and will be recalled the next time you enter Tuner Mode.
Tuner Pass-Through Volume
When in Tuner Mode, turn the Chan Vol knob to set the Tuner Pass-Through Volume. This is how loud you want your sound to be when youre tuning up. You can also turn Chan Vol all the way down to mute your sound completely when tuning. This setting is automatically saved and will be recalled the next time you enter Tuner Mode.
When in Tuner Mode, use the Drive knob to set the Tuner Sensitivity. This is like a noise gate just for the tuner itll reduce the hiss and noise guitar systems tend to put out so that the tuner doesnt give you false note readings. This setting is automatically saved and will be recalled the next time you enter Tuner Mode.

control fully left youve got big bottom 21st Century Clean, and fully right youve got paint-peeling ultra-drive. Set it anywhere in between, and you get to have your cake and smear it all over your audience, too. Line 6 INSANE. Our goal here was to provide you with as much input gain distortion as possible short of complete meltdown. You get ridiculous, rich tube drive to shame the distortion of pretty much any amp on the planet while still retaining tonal definition and character. As a result, you get lots of bottom end and cabinet character with tons of wideranging tone shaping. Crank up the Drive control and take no prisoners! Tube Preamp. Not even close to being a guitar amp, but once we got started, we just couldnt stop ourselves. The thinking went like this: Once people get this Pocket POD, its gonna be so great that theyre gonna wish they could use it for everything warming up keyboards, crunching up drums, fuzzing up vocals. Weve gotta give em something to do that! So we did. The Tube Preamp Amp Model lets you warm up any sound source the way producers and engineers often do in the studio with vintage tube gear. For more edge on vocals, try running your vocal tracks through Pocket POD. Or punch up (or munch up) a synth bass track by sending it through Pocket POD and cranking up the Drive and EQ controls to suit your taste. Although this is not actually a guitar amp model, you can even get some great guitar tones out of it. Also try using it as a direct box for bass. When you do this stuff, you want to use the Drive control like a mix knob on a reverb to control how much processing you want to hear. You generally dont want to mix the pre-Pocket POD sound with the post-Pocket POD sound because of the comb filtering that results. Instead, jack the sound source right into Pocket POD and then only monitor it post-Pocket POD processing. With the tone controls at 12 oclock, the EQ is at. Jazz Clean. Based on* the classic Roland JC-120. This transistor amp was known for a strident clean sound and builtin stereo chorus. When using the Jazz Clean Amp Model, try cranking up the Treble for a shimmering clean sound thatll cut through just about any mix. Its also perfect for that 80s new wave sound. Alternatively, try backing off on the Treble and turn up the Bass and Mid for a darker jazz tone. Itll give you an essentially at response, providing a balanced tone across the fret

board for jazz chord melodies or single-line phrasing. Small Tweed. Based on* a 1952 wide panel Fender Tweed Deluxe Reverb. This Amp Model will snarl with the best of them. The original amp had only a single tone control, essentially a treble roll off. We set up the Treble knob to give you this treble roll off when using this Amp Model, which left us with the Bass and Mid knobs just sitting there. That just didnt seem right, so we figured out a way to put those knobs to work without mucking about with the authenticity of this Amp Models treble tone control. We set up the Bass and Mid as post-Amp Model controls, which essentially lets you EQ up your tone as you would do on a mixing console after recording your amp. Set the Bass and Mid knobs at halfway to put them in neutral, and try the Treble knob somewhere above halfway for a classic Tweed sound. Small Tweed #2. Based on* the 1960 Fender Tweed Champ. This is a great sound when the Drive is cranked (not bad clean, either). These amps were originally designed to be sold to beginners, but rock and rollers quickly discovered that you could get a great distorted sound at fairly low volume levels. Many of the classic guitar solos of the 50s were recorded through a Champ. The Champ had no tone control, only volume. With your Pocket POD, its easy to get a classic Champ tone. Just leave all the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls parked at 12 oclock, which means they are at, making no contribution to the tone. Still, wed hate to waste those things, so we gured out a way to put the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls to work without mucking about with the authenticity of this Amp Model. When using this Amp Model, all these tone controls are applied after the Amp Model processing, which essentially lets you EQ up your tone as you would do on a mixing console after recording your amp. Remember, for the authentic emulated sound of the Champ, set all the tone controls at 12 oclock.

drive channel has a thick, liquid, singing sustain that doesnt lose string denition when driven hard. Pocket PODs tone controls on this Amp Model are quite subtle, like those of the Dumble itself. Boutique #2. Based on the Dumble Overdrive Special Drive Channel. If you like the Dumble sound, you might also want to check out the Line 6 Crunch model it was created to deliver a similar kind of tone.
Boutique #3. Based on* a Budda Twinmaster head. The Budda philosophy is all about power tube distortion. Simplicity is the key. With relatively low front end gain, highly interactive tone controls, and tube rectifier sag its great at getting a classic cranked sound for small gigs and recording. Once again, since the Twinmaster has no mid control, weve added a little bonus in the form of some post-Amp Model mid contouring available via the Mid control. As usual, set this control to 12 oclock to get groovy with the unadorned Budda-style vibe. California Crunch #1. Based on* a Mesa/Boogie Mark II-C+. The rst of the boutique amp makers was probably Mesa/Boogie. Boogie made their mark in the late 70s and early 80s by adding master volumes and more gain stages to amps with Fender-style circuitry. You can hear the Fender heritage but with more punch in the mids. This model is based on the Clean Channel of the classic Mesa/Boogie Mark II-C, with the enhancements of the + version of the Mark II-C circuitry design. California Crunch #2. Based on* the Drive Channel of the Mesa/Boogie Mark II-C+. Try your Santana licks here. Brit Class A. Based on* the Vox AC 30. Music was changing in the early 60s and guitarists were asking for more brilliance & twang. So the Jennings Company, makers of Vox amps, decided to add Treble and Bass controls (and an extra 12AX7 gain stage, incidentally); this additional circuit became known as Top Boost. The AC 30 with Top Boost was the amp made famous by many

British invasion bands. Much of the unique character of the Vox sound can be attributed to the fact that Class A amps overdrive in a very different way than Class AB. Brian May of Queen, Mike Campbell of Tom Pettys Heartbreakers, and The Edge of U2 have also used classic AC 30s to make their music. On this Amp Model, Pocket PODs Mid control acts like the Cut knob on the AC 30. Although usually played fairly clean, a cranked AC 30 has a great saturated lead tone, a la Brian May on the early Queen albums. Brit Class A #2. Based on* the Normal Channel of a Non-Top Boost Vox AC-30. As we mentioned, the early Vox amps were the rst designed especially for electric guitar (Hey, some early amps from other manufacturers have Accordion inputs! Polka, anyone?), and used Class A power amp designs, rather than the much more common Class AB type. We were lucky enough to nd what we are told was one of Bryan Adams favorite AC 30s for recording. Lenny Kravitz happened to be using it the week before we began testing. It was one of the gems in a great collection of vintage ampliers offered for rental in Los Angeles, where Line 6 is located. We later bought this amp, and continued to hone our emulation of it to bring you the Amp Model it inspired in the Pocket POD. This is denitely a good place to start to get yourself some of those classic British invasion sounds. Like the AC 15, the AC 30 NTB has only a single treble control, so Pocket PODs Bass and Mid controls here are set up for boost after the Amp Model processing to add a little extra exibility without compromising the accuracy of the model. The 12 oclock setting on these controls is at response. Brit Class A #3. Based on* Channel 1 of a wonderful 1960 Vox AC 15. Heres another Vox-inspired Amp Model. The sound is similar to that of the Vox AC 30s that were studied for Pocket PODs Brit Class A and Brit Class A #2 Amp Models, but this is a smaller amp (one, instead of two, 12 speakers) with a warmer, more woody sound. Once again, the original amp had only a single tone control a treble cut. We faithfully modeled that and then slipped in some post-Amp Model bass and mid contouring. Set the Bass and Mid to neutral (12 oclock, or halfway up) and play with the Treble control to get yourself some of those classic

Of course, you can always pump up the drive and rage. Modern Class A. Based on* a Matchless Chieftain. The 96 Matchless Chieftain, which was studied for the Modern Class A selection, is a very expensive handmade amp. The Matchless has an EL34-powered modern class A design hence this models name and a unique tone (largely due to the complicated EQ scheme). The sound is sort of future retro. Its soft clipping is typical of Class A ampliers; almost a hi- sound in a great rock and roll amplifier. TreadPlate. Based on* a 1994 Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectier Tremoverb. You can use this Amp Model to get that tight, high gain sound used by bands like Dream Theater or Metallica. Mesa/ Boogie made their mark in the late 70s and early 80s by adding master volumes and more gain stages to amps with Fender-style circuitry. You can hear the Fender heritage but with more punch in the mids. The Dual Rectiers tone controls are post-distortion and, as with the tone sections of most of the amps we based our models on, the individual controls interact with each other and with the Drive. With high drive settings, you can scoop the mids and crank the bottom end for some great Seattle grunge sounds. TreadPlate #2. Based on* a 1995 Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectier head. As with the Tremoverb combo that was modeled for the TreadPlate Amp Model, the Dual Rectier was part of Boogies more modern, high gain approach for that big hair sound. In contrast to the earlier Boogies, the Dual Rectiers tone controls have more inuence at high gain settings, so you can scoop the mids and increase the bottom end.

Modern Hi Gain. Based on* the Soldano X88R. The Soldano sound is intensely overdriven, and also has EQ after the preamp distortion. This oversaturated tone is well-suited to thrash metal and grunge bands, but has also been used more subtly by artists like Eric Clapton. This is a good Amp Model to use if you want to get a Van Halen or Joe Satriani sound. The Pocket POD Modern Hi Gain Amp Model is based on one of Mike Soldanos rackmount preamps. Talk about high gain preamp tube distortion! The X88R we studied to create this Amp Model would have been the rage for Los Angeles studio use in the late 80s. Modern Hi Gain #2. Based on* a Soldano SLO Super Lead Overdrive head. Unlike the X88R preamp used for the Pocket POD Modern Hi Gain Amp Model, the SLO includes a presence control, plus other little details that give it a bit of a different sound. With the Drive control cranked way up, youll get sustain for days. Go outnave a bite when you come back itll still be sustaining! Fuzzbox. Based on* the Arbiter Fuzz Face. Although not technically an amp, we felt that the unique tonal qualities of the classic 1960s Arbiter Fuzz Face earned it a place among the amps studied to create Pocket PODs Amp Models. This fuzz box used broad-frequency transistor-based clipping. The result is a buzzing kind of distortion that has become popular again with the alternative and grunge set. Jimi Hendrix was among the rst guitarists to popularize the Fuzz Face in the States, but our Model is considerably dirtier than the tones found on Are You Experienced. Try playing Satisfaction by the Stones, or the lead from American Woman by The Guess Who. Liberal use of the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls will let you go beyond the tones that the Fuzz Face could deliver, enabling you to discover your own unique recipe for those elusive fuzz tones in your head. Just a note: when recording Purple Haze, Jimi didnt even use an amp he just went straight from a Fuzz Face to an Orange power amp to a 4x12 cabinet. Which is the same sort of tone you nd here.

The following Cabinet Models are available in Pocket POD. When you choose an Amp Model, you actually select an amp/cab combination. See Appendix A for the details. You can also mix n match different cabs with the amp by using the Vyzex Pocket POD editor/ librarian software, which is available as a free download from www.line6.com/software.

Cabinet Tuning Mode
The Amp Out on your Pocket POD can be tuned for optimal performance with a variety of systems. By default, your Pocket POD expects to be plugged-in to the instrument input of a combo amp or head with an open-backed cabinet. If you want to plug in to something else, youll want to change the Cabinet Tuning Mode. To do this, do the following: Press and hold the Save and Down buttons while plugging in the guitar input.
After startup, the display will show Cab Select. The display will show current cabinet tuning selection. Press the Up or Down buttons to change selection as follows: Use Mode. A B C (default) D Direct when Pocket POD is. feeding a power amp input feeding a power amp input feeding an instrument input feeding an instrument input feeding a recording device, mixer, live P.A., etc. & your speaker cabs are. closed back (ideal for 4x12 cab) open back (ideal for 1x12) open back (ideal for 1x12 or 2x12) closed back (ideal for 4x12) not connected
Modeled after* the classic Fender tremolo. The Effects knob controls the depth; Tap controls the speed. The tremolo speed will be twice as fast as you tap (and twice as fast as the Tap light flashes), allowing you to set fast tremolos without having to tap like a madman. Youll find two different chorus effects in Pocket POD. Chorus 1 is modulated by a square wave, so it sounds more like a rackmount type chorus. Chorus 2 is modulated by a sine wave with more feedback, so it has richer harmonic content. Chorus 2 was massaged to closely approximate* the classic tone of an old Roland CE1 box. The Effects knob spins you through a range of chorus settings from subtle to extreme; Tap controls the speed of the effect. By the way, if you want to get a really slow chorus, you have to tap really slow try 6 or 7 seconds between taps.

Flanger Flanging is that familiar jet airplane taking off sound youve heard on countless recordings from the 70s; just listen to Barracuda, by Heart for example. Originally the effect was rarely used, since engineers had to use finger pressure on one of the tape reels. This pressure slowed the speed of the tape in tiny increments creating this effect. The part of the tape reel they pressed on is called the flange, so you can see how the effect got its name. Eventually, the effect could be produced electronically and when it became available in guitar stomp boxes, it became standard equipment for most guitarists.
Two flangers are available in Pocket POD. Flanger 1 is a light flange with no pre-delay, and is subtler than Flanger 2, which is inverted, and has a deeper range (depth). The Effects knob gives you a range of flanger effects from just a bit to Holy Cow! Tap dials in the speed.
Rotary This effect simulates* the effect of a micd, rotating high frequency speaker horn, like on a Leslie. Rotary speakers have two speeds: slow and fast. Weve set up Pocket PODs Rotary Speaker emulation to select a fixed slow speed if you tap the Tap button slowly, and a fixed fast speed when you tap the Tap button quickly. When you switch from one speed to the other, youll notice that the speed doesnt change immediately, but gradually changes from one speed to the other, just as a real rotating speakers speed would ramp from one setting to the other. The Effects knob controls the amount of Doppler effect (pitch modulation); Tap controls the speed. Combined Effects
The rest of the effects are combinations of Delay and one other effect. They should be fairly self-explanatory. Tap sets the delay speed for all these effects.
Delay/Compressor. The Effects knob controls Compression
Dly Tremolo Delay/Tremolo. Effects automatically controls both speed and depth to give you a variety of Tremolos. Dly Chorus 1 Delay/Chorus 1. Effects spins you through a variety of Chorus

Delay Swell Well, heres one we havent explained before. Swell is like an automatic volume pedal that will give you a very even volume swell with each note or chord you play. Effects controls the attack speed of the volume swell. You can, of course, turn the volume knob on your guitar with the heel of your picking hand. Or spin the Effects knob here and have Pocket POD do the job for you! Bypass You guessed it. This bypasses all effects.
noise guitar systems tend to put out when youre not playing, especially when using a high gain setting (since high gain means that noise is turned up along with your guitar sound). You can control the gate threshold by holding the Save and Tap buttons while pressing the Left or Right buttons press the Right button for more gating and Left for less. Repeatedly pressing the Left button will eventually turn the noise gate off.

Welcome to the Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide. Please remember to check back at the Line 6 website (www.line6.com) for updates to the program and to this document.
What are the minimum requirements for the program?
PC Windows XP and Vista. NOTE: Windows 2000 does not include a class compliant MIDI driver, so the Windows 2000 operating system is therefore not compatible with Pocket POD. P4 equivalent Processor and up, 32-bit color graphics and 1024x800 or larger display. NOTE: If your PCs main display resolution is near the minimum requirement, you may need to set your task bar to auto-hide in order to avoid clipping of the editor GUI by the Windows Operating System. MAC OSX 10.4 and OSX 10.5, Power PC G4, G5 and all Intel Processors. 1024x800 or larger display.
How do I install and configure the program?
First you should run the installer program, then you should connect your Pocket POD to your computer with the supplied USB cable, supply power to Pocket POD with either batteries or a standard Line 6 POD power supply, and plug a guitar cable into Pocket PODs input. This last step is important even if you dont have a guitar connected on the other end, since the guitar jack on Pocket POD acts as an on/off switch. The following USB ports are known to cause Pocket POD to spontaneously reset its drivers and reboot itself when accessed by connected MIDI software: All USB hubs including many USB ports built into laptop PCs, Mac Tower: The front USB port Macbook: The back (left) USB port Macbook Pro: The right USB ports
PLEASE ENSURE YOUR POCKET POD IS CONNECTED THROUGH A RELIABLE USB PORT BEFORE PROCEEDING!
Everything checked on the list above? Great! Now you should quit any MIDI port using music software you have running before you launch the program for the first time This will avoid any possible conflicts between Vyzex and your other MIDI software on the programs maiden voyage.
Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide
Auto-sensing, auto-sensing, 1, 2, 3 By default, Vyzex PocketPOD will open every MIDI In and MIDI Out port on your computer and conduct a thorough search for your PocketPOD: When PocketPOD has been found, Vyzex will set the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports it needs in order to communicate with PocketPOD automatically. By default, Vyzex PocketPOD will automatically GET (upload) your PocketPODs user bank and current editing buffer every time you launch the program:
This step ensures that the editor has a copy of every channel bank memory aboard your PocketPOD loaded up for editing at the start of each session.
Once the transfer is complete you will be able to click on the BANK mode button and see the entire channel bank from your PocketPOD within the editors Graphical User Interface (GUI):
At this moment, the editor and your PocketPOD are completely synchronized. This means both the software and the hardware have identical data loaded and any edits you make in the editor will be automatically transmitted to your PocketPOD, including any changes to the Channel Bank ordering. Backing Up Your Tone Data To back up your tone data to hard disk, choose FILE->Save Set from the applications menu. Youre now backed up, provided you dont save any changes to this file. If youre worried about that happening, you can also choose the FILE->Save Set As menu command to change the file name you are working with before you move on.
What if I got an error message saying the editor couldnt find my PocketPOD?
If the editor software is unable to find your PocketPOD and synchronize itself, you have a connection problem Assuming youve followed the MIDI connection diagram on page 1, this issue is likely Windows driver related. Please check out the Vyzex PocketPOD Troubleshooting PDF file, available for instant access from the programs Manuals menu. Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 3
Ok, I backed up my set file for safety. So how do I edit a PocketPOD Channel?
Simply twist the knobs and click on the pop-up controls in the Vyzex editor GUI and youll hear the changes instantly reflected in PocketPOD: These changes will be temporary unless you then press the STORE button in the editor GUI. Heres a quick tour through some editing with Vyzex PocketPOD: TONE EDIT Press the TONE button to put the editor GUI into Tone Edit mode. Edit the parameters by twisting knobs and clicking on text controls in the editor GUI (See NOTE below). When you get a sound you want to keep, press the STORE button to overwrite the original tone at the bank location indicated right next to the channel NAME in the editor GUI. In normal operating mode, the editor will also update the matching channel memory aboard your PocketPOD whenever you press the STORE button in the editor GUI. Now lets click on the EDITOR MODE BANK button to switch from TONE edit mode to BANK edit mode. The knobs operate as rotary-drag controls: You can change them to operate as linear drag controls in the Options->Preferences dialog. A full explanation of the program preferences and an overview of how all the control types operate (including keyboard shortcuts and alternate click modes) can be found in the Preferences Guide PDF, available from the applications Manuals menu.
BANK EDIT With the BANK Edit mode activated, you can see every user channel in the CHANNEL BANK. If you click on any entry in the CHANNEL BANK area youll see that it is automatically loaded for tone editing. Youll also hear that the new tone is also being auditioned on your PocketPOD. You can drag and drop entries within the channel bank to swap them around. You can also copy single or multiple consecutive channel entries to the clipboard and then paste them into a different location, provided the destination is the same size as the source.
Drag and drop operations in the CHANNEL BANK editor work as follows: If you drag any preset in the bank to another location, the source and destination presets will trade places. This is a Swap Operation. If you hold down the CTRL (Option on Mac) key while dragging and dropping, the source will be copied over the destination. This is a Copy Operation. If you hold down the SHIFT key while dragging and dropping, the source will be moved into the destinations location and the bank entries between the two will be shifted back 1 place in order to fill the hole left behind by the source. This is an Insert operation.
Every change you make to the channel bank through the editor GUI will be automatically transmitted to your PocketPOD, so remember to restore your original saved user set to your PocketPOD when you are done playing with the editor. Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 5
RENAME A TONE Simply click on the current tones name to change it
THE STORE IN BUTTON The tone is renamed, and we decide wed like to store the change but not within the 1A slot within the editors channel bank: We want the 5 Types of Glue tone to be located at Channel Bank Memory 6C instead. Rather than click the STORE button, click on the STORE IN button, instead.
THE STORE IN DIALOG The STORE IN dialog allows you to choose any location in the channel bank as a destination. Lets choose 6C as the destination. We then click on the Store to Destination button.
STEP 6: If you now look in the CHANNEL BANK area of the editor, youll see that channel memory 6C contains the tone we named 5 Types of Glue. At this point, the channel memory 6C on your PocketPOD will also now contain the 5 Types of Glue tone. Youll note that the original 5 SHADES OF BLUE tone in the 1A channel memory has not been changed. In the upper part of the GUI, youll see that 6C is now displayed as the Channel Bank location of the 5 Types of Glue tone that is currently loaded for editing: If you were to press the STORE button now, the tone would be stored in the 6C destination.
Nice demo. Now, lets restore my original data to my PocketPOD Im jamming tonight!
If you have followed along and experimented with the STORE button or performed any kind of bank reorganizing operations, you should be aware that every change you just made in the editor has also been automatically applied to the memory locations aboard your PocketPOD. To restore the onboard memory of your PocketPOD to its original state, follow these steps: 1. Select File->Open from the program menu and select the *.SQS (set) file that you originally saved. 2. If a dialog asks Do you want to save the changes? click on the No button. 3. When the Synchronize This Set? dialog opens, click on the SYNC the Set TO PocketPOD button. This procedure will load your saved Set file into the editor and synchronize its contents to your PocketPOD.
Having the editor automatically overwrite my PocketPOD bank whenever I open a set file makes me nervous I keep my gig tones stored aboard the unit! Isnt there a safer way to work?
Absolutely: There are times when you dont want to synchronize an opened set file into your PocketPOD, such as when you only wish to browse the set file for interesting tones. In cases like these, it makes more sense for the editor to transfer each tone you select into the temporary edit buffer aboard your PocketPOD, avoiding the PocketPOD Channel Bank altogether. The result is your PocketPOD plays whatever tones you select while its onboard Channel Bank remains unchanged by the editor. To enter this alternate operational mode, open a set file from disk and click the Do Not SYNC This Set File button when you the Synchronize This Set? dialog opens:
This safer way of working is called Virtual Bank Editing: Instead of the editors Channel Bank operating as a fully synchronized copy of the actual Channel Bank on your PocketPOD, the editor Channel Bank operates as a virtual bank without actually touching the Channel Bank in the PocketPOD. To explain the difference between Direct and Virtual Bank editing, here is a graphical representation of the three levels that interact when you are using the Vyzex PocketPOD editor:
Check out the red box entitled POCKETPOD on the left: See the 124 green squares inside the red box? These represent the 124 channel tones that live in the CHANNEL BANK onboard your PocketPOD. Now look at the black box entitled EDITOR in the middle of this illustration: Another set of 124 green squares, right? These represent the 124 tones you are changing whenever you edit within the bank editor. Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 10
In the preceding illustration it should be clear that the tones in both channel banks usually start out as copies of each other (such as immediately after youve uploaded a SET to the editor from PocketPOD, or immediately after youve downloaded a SET from the editor to PocketPOD). When the editor operates in Direct Bank mode, the software automatically transfers any changes you make in the editors channel bank directly to the channel bank in your PocketPOD. This is the normal operating mode of the editor which is both easy to understand and simple to use. On the other hand, whenever you open a set file from disk into the editor and do not to synchronize its data to your PocketPOD, you are telling the software that the Channel Bank in your PocketPOD should not be overwritten to match the Channel Bank in the editor. The editor software follows this rule by shifting to Virtual Bank mode. In Virtual Bank mode, the software simulates direct bank editing without actually involving the Channel Bank on the PocketPOD. Whenever you select a new preset in the editors channel bank, this is what happens: 1. The editor sends a program change to your PocketPOD to update the bank number display on the front panel, 2. The editor updates the PocketPOD editing buffer with the selected tone data from the editor. As a result, you may be fooled into thinking the editors bank is actually the bank onboard PocketPOD, but its only a convincing simulation on the editors part, which is why we call this technique virtual bank editing. In Virtual Bank mode you can navigate through the Channel Bank in the editor and perform all kinds of reorganization within the bank entries while dragging new tones in and out of the Collection (more on the Collection shortly) and your PocketPOD will faithfully audition each selected sound as if these tones were part of the onboard PocketPOD bank The important thing to remember is, unless you specifically command the editor to transfer its Channel Bank into the one on PocketPOD (with a manual SET SYNC operation), the actual bank aboard your PocketPOD is completely protected. This means your all-important gig sounds are safe from erasure unless you really want to replace them. When the Vyzex PocketPOD editor is in Virtual Bank mode, youll see that an extra button labelled SYNC appears directly below the USER CHANNELS navigation buttons in the editor GUI:
Additionally, a flashing red V indicator (V for Virtual, not Vendetta) also appears between the STORE and STORE IN buttons in Virtual Bank mode. This is your cue that Virtual Bank editing is engaged. The STORE and STORE IN buttons only write to the editors Channel Bank when the V indicator is flashing, incidentally. This safeguards the Channel Bank aboard your PocketPOD as part of the Virtual Bank operational rules. The SYNC button provides a way to command the editor to restore synchronization between your PocketPOD onboard channel bank and the channel bank in the editor. It also provides the option to SYNC the current tone being edited into the PocketPOD Channel Bank from within Virtual Bank mode. Clicking on the SYNC button launches the following dialog: Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 11
This dialog lets you choose from four different operations. From left to right they are: 1. SYNC Set TO POD: This transfers the entire set in the editor to PocketPOD, overwriting the Channel Bank onboard the device and resuming direct mode editing. 2. SYNC Set FROM POD: This transfers the entire Channel Bank from your PocketPOD into the current set file and resumes direct mode editing. 3. SYNC Channel to POD: This writes the currently edited tone in the editor to the displayed bank location in both the editors Channel Bank and your PocketPOD Channel Bank. Virtual Bank editing will continue. 4. Cancel: This (quite obviously) cancels the dialog without any changes. Virtual Bank editing will continue. When Virtual Bank mode is active, youll also notice two new buttons appearing in the Bank editor whenever you make a selection: GET SELECTED and SYNC SELECTED.
These two buttons command the editor to either GET the corresponding channel location from your PocketPOD and load it in the editors Channel Bank or to SYNC the selected entry into the corresponding channel location on PocketPOD. These two buttons are not available outside of Virtual Bank mode since they are unnecessary when the editors channel bank and the PocketPOD channel bank are automatically synchronized.
So far youve only talked about Set (SQS) files - What about L6T files from CustomTone.com?
While SQS files are the format used by the Vyzex editor to store the contents of an entire PocketPOD in one place, the program also works with single channel Line 6 Tone (L6T) files available for download at http://www.customtone.com.
L6T files come in many different varieties: A Vetta II L6T file will not be compatible with PocketPOD hardware, nor will a Pocket POD L6T file be compatible with HD147 hardware for example. Only PocketPOD, Floor POD Plus and POD 2.0 L6T files can be opened by the Vyzex PocketPOD editor software - All other L6T file types are incompatible! As mentioned above, Vyzex Pocket POD can import Floor POD Plus and POD 2.0 L6T files. Youll have to bear in mind that these devices are close but not identical to PocketPOD in structure and that the imported file may not sound 100% like it did on the original device when loaded on your PocketPOD.
When you open an L6T file, the tone is loaded for editing as the current selected tone: You can hear it, but unless you STORE it to a Channel Bank location it will not become a relatively permanent part of the set file.
Can I also drag and drop L6T files to import them?
Yes: You can drag and drop L6T files from any open folder on your computer into the Vyzex PocketPOD editor window: If you drop the file over the TONE editing area of the GUI it will be imported into the current CHANNEL editing buffer (as shown in the illustration above), If you drop the file over the BANK editing area of the GUI it will be imported into the specific CHANNEL BANK entry you drop into. If you drop the file over the Collection view (explained on the next page), it will be imported into the collection and sorted alphabetically by name.
What about multiple L6T files: Can I import a selection of these in one shot?
Yes: You can batch import any number of L6T files into the Vyzex PocketPOD editor, but you will need to open the editors Collection view first. Opening The Collection View The Collection View can be opened by checking the Collection View item in the Options menu:
The collection acts as a global listing of your favorite tones that remains available no matter which set file you have currently opened. This property makes the Collection View as equally useful as both a transfer clipboard and a master library of individual set components. To import any number of L6T files into the collection, simply select the L6T files in an open folder window and then drag and drop the selection into the Collection pane of the editor window. The next time you open the Collection View you will see these tones have been sorted alphabetically into the collection list. Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 14
To transfer any bank entry to the Collection, simply drag it from the Bank window into the Collection. Likewise, to transfer a collection entry to the editor, simply drag it back into the editor. If you want to copy the currently edited tone to the Collection, hold down the ALT key and click down the mouse on any area in the editor where there isnt a control (such as the Line 6 logo) and ALT-drag the tone to the Collection. Unlike the bank view (which automatically loads any selection you make for editing), the collection allows you to audition your selection without directly loading it into the editor GUI. This means you can hear each tone in the collection by single clicking on them in turn, but your current edits will not be disturbed. If you actually want to replace the currently edited tone with one from the collection, simply double click on the tone you want to load. There are a couple of rules governing the drag and drop operations that are possible between the Collection and the Editor GUI, and well get into them later on when we cover the Editor GUI in greater detail. You dont have to drag a collection item into the editor if you only want to audition it: When you click on the item Vyzex will automatically load it into PocketPODs editing buffer for instant auditioning. If you decide you also want to edit any collection item in the editor GUI, simply double-click on it and it will load for editing and also be auditioned at the same time. When you first install Vyzex PocketPOD, the Collection will be empty. Then as you add items to it from the Editor, the Collection will stores them sequentially, which means the newer entries will always be located closer to the bottom of the collections listing: This allows you to archive multiple versions of the same item and not worry about which one is the most recent. The entire collection is stored as a single file on your hard drive called Default.SQC: If you ever want to archive the collection, this is the file to back up. The Default.SQC file is located in the \Psicraft\Vyzex PocketPOD\Line 6 PocketPOD subfolder of your user documents folder (on both Windows and Mac).
What about the BAND and STYLE tones in my PocketPOD: How do I put these in the collection?
Since the collection is such a convenient place for you to keep useful tones, you may want to transfer any number of the preset tones from PocketPODs BAND or STYLE banks to the collection. Heres how to do this: 1. Open the Collection View from the Options->Preferences menu. 2. Chose File->Open from the Vyzex PocketPOD application menu. 3. Select the 'Band.SQS' file that was installed with the editor software A Set will open that contains PocketPODs entire selection of BAND banks. 4. Do NOT Sync the set to your PocketPOD when prompted by the Sync This Set? Dialog. 5. Enter the BANK mode of the editor and select the tones you want in the bank editor. 6. Drag these tones into the Collection and release the mouse button. 7. Go back to Step 2 and repeat with the Style.SQS file that was installed with the editor software. Mac Users - The Band.SQS and Style.SQS files are located in the Macintosh HD : Documents : Psicraft : Vyzex PocketPOD : Line 6 PocketPOD folder, where Macintosh HD is the name of your root OS hard disk.
This concludes the Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide PDF Manual It was pretty quick, wasnt it? Since this document is only an introduction, its a good idea for you to also read the companion PDF manuals like the Vyzex PocketPOD Preference Guide and the Vyzex PocketPOD Troubleshooting Guide for a more complete view of how the editor operates. Just as with this PDF, these PDFs are also accessible from the programs Manuals pull down menu.
APPENDIX 1 : Manually Configuring Vyzex PocketPOD
As was mentioned in part one of this pilots guide, Vyzex PocketPOD automatically configures itself to use the correct MIDI ports and then uploads PocketPODs user bank and channel buffer every time you launch the program. While this is the default setup for the program, you are free to reconfigure the program manually which may be more to your liking once youve mastered how it operates. There are four basic options that are turned on in the program as defaults: Auto Load Sets: When checked, Vyzex loads a Set from PocketPOD each time the program is started. AutoSense on Program Execution: When checked, Vyzex automatically attempts to determine the MIDI ports and SysX communication channel that it uses every time the program is started. If this option is not checked then you must manually configure the settings using the Settings dialog. AutoLoad Temporary Elements when Create New Set: When checked, Vyzex loads a set from PocketPOD whenever a new file is created. Auto Save and Reload Session: When checked, Vyzex automatically saves the set on program exit and reloads this set the next time the program is run. NOTE: If the Auto Load Sets option is also checked, the session reload will not take place A new set will be loaded from PocketPOD instead. Rather than just showing you what to uncheck, were going to explain the background details, starting with Geek Facts 1 and 2 from The Midiot's Guide to the Studio:
Geek Fact #1: One USB Cable equals many MIDI Cables. By connecting a USB cable between a MIDI Interface and your computer you are actually connecting two virtual MIDI cables: One from PocketPOD's output to the computer's input and another from the computer's MIDI output to PocketPOD's input in one shot. From your computer operating systems perspective, the virtual MIDI cable coming from your PocketPOD appears as a MIDI Input Port, and a MIDI Output Port. These ports will be available to any music software that supports MIDI, which includes sequencers, DAWS and of course the Vyzex PocketPOD editor program. Geek Fact #2: Computers often have 'hidden' MIDI Ports. It's true. Even if you don't have other USB MIDI devices connected, your computer may have 'virtual' MIDI ports that address things like your Sound Card's game port or that cheesy onboard synthesizer chip that bad websites love to fire up unexpectedly. These MIDI ports will always be visible to music software as possible selections in addition to the ports that PocketPOD presents to your computers operating system whenever the USB cable is plugged in, no matter your taste in web design.
Weve related these two geek facts to prepare you for the fact that before you can use your PocketPOD with any piece of music software, youll need to select one or more appropriate MIDI IN ports and MIDI Out ports within the softwares configuration dialogs. As was mentioned earlier, Vyzex PocketPOD is set by default to automatically do this chore for you when you first start using the editor, but after you become more proficient using your PocketPOD, youll likely want to do more sophisticated things with it, and thats when the information in this section of the Users Guide is essential for you to know. The Vyzex MIDI In Ports Dialog (MIDI->MIDI In Ports Menu)
THE MIDI IN PORTS DIALOG ON WINDOWS XP (WITH A CLASS COMPLIANT MIDI PORT SHOWN)
The MIDI In Ports dialog is where you select the MIDI port(s) that you wish the editor to connect to. By default, the Always Start with All MIDI Ports Open option is checked because this allows the AutoSense routine to check every MIDI port that is available to your computer. If you have disabled AutoSense in the Vyzex preferences menu, you should uncheck this option to avoid conflicts with other music software installed on your computer that you may want to run simultaneous to the Vyzex editor. Its important to understand that your computer operating system refers to these ports as MIDI IN ports purely from its own perspective, not from PocketPOD: This means that the MIDI IN Port called USB Audio Device is actually connected to the MIDI OUT port on PocketPOD, and the MIDI Out Port called USB Audio Device is actually connected to the MIDI IN port on PocketPOD. Dont worry This is not as confusing as it sounds. Just remember that from the computers perspective, these two ports are the input port that brings MIDI Data from PocketPOD and the output port that sends MIDI Data to PocketPOD. For basic editor operation, you only need to select each port used by PocketPOD. These will be labelled according to your particular MIDI interfaces name unless you are using Windows XP and your MIDI interface is class compliant (which means it uses the built-in Windows USB MIDI driver). Windows XP labels its class compliant MIDI ports as the somewhat unfriendly USB Audio Device as shown above. Remember: These instructions only apply if you are manually configuring the Vyzex software! Otherwise you can leave everything as it was installed and the software should automatically reconfigure the MIDI In and MIDI Out ports whenever you run the program. Vyzex PocketPOD Pilots Guide 17
On Windows Vista and Mac OS X, the MIDI Port names are always considerably friendlier than Windows XP: On these operating systems youll be able to tell your MIDI interfaces MIDI ports from others that your system may have available. Simply click on the port to selected it and click on the OK button: Just remember that if you want the program to recall these selections every time it runs youll also need to uncheck the Always Start with All MIDI Ports Open option as well. The Vyzex MIDI Out Ports Dialog (MIDI->MIDI Out Ports Menu)
THE MIDI OUT PORTS DIALOG ON MAC OSX
As explained previously, Windows XP refers to PocketPODs MIDI In Port and MIDI Out Port as USB Audio Devices, which can get quite confusing, especially if you have more than one classcompliant USB MIDI device connected to your PC. In this situation the USB Audio Devices will be numbered, and (unfortunately) the ordering of each devices ports will differ from model to model, so be alert when you are trying to determine which one(s) to select. FOR WINDOWS XP Additionally the MIDI Out Ports numbering order on Windows XP is often different than the MIDI In port numbering, so please keep this in mind when configuring the MIDI ports manually.
Multi-Client Driver Support In the world of MIDI device drivers, multi-client operation is very desirable: Multi-client MIDI drivers can be opened and used by more than one software application at a time, allowing multiple programs to share attached MIDI devices. While Apples OS X class-compliant MIDI drivers are multi-client, the equivalent Microsoft class-compliant MIDI drivers on Windows XP & Vista not multi-client: This means that you wont be able to use Vyzex to edit your PocketPOD while another program is accessing it (such as your favorite DAW or sequencer program). If you have the Always Start with All MIDI Ports Open option checked for use with Vyzexs AutoSense features and you have other non-multi-client MIDI devices connected, this will cause conflicts with any other MIDI software you are running. In this situation, you should disable this option and configure Vyzex manually to work with your PocketPOD.
WINDOWS XP & VISTA
Disabling the Automatic MIDI Port Management (AutoSense) Feature If you need to disable the AutoSense feature, the relevant program options can be found in the Preferences dialog within the Studio tab:
PREFERENCES DIALOG STUDIO TAB (WINDOWS XP)
Simply uncheck the AutoSense option shown here and then uncheck the open the Always Start with All MIDI Ports Open option in both the MIDI IN Ports and MIDI Out Ports dialogs. After you have done this the Vyzex application will save any specific IN and OUT Port selection(s) youve made.
