POD XT LIVE AND SLO 100 ?
Post by cneidlinger on Aug 3rd, 2016, 3:10pm

Hey guys...I'm new to the Soldano family and have a few questions...First, I just inherited a SLO 100 and I am very stoked! Now I have been playing for years,but really don't know much about the technical side of things when it comes to gear,just dialing in my tone till I hear what I like...so...I currently have a POD XT LIVE that I was going to use with my Soldano,however i am catching the drift that maybe it will not work so well with my Soldano head...I have heard that the effects loop is less than desirable on the Soldano and you have to be careful what to use...I keep hearing that the Gmajor is the way to go...which I am going to purchase but for now,what about my POD? Also,I am looking for a 4x12 cab,that will accent the head well...I will be purchasing that used.So i am looking for advice on that as well...I play alot of metal and guitar instrumentals in the style of Vai and Satch as far as my musical style goes if that helps...Thanks for the help!

AFAIK the loop on the SLO is very hot, I think it is called 'studio level' - something like +4db, so it could overdrive the input on whatever you put in it. Not less than desirable, just designed for different gear.

Necro thread resurrection alert! smiley

The XT Live, if it has the "Line" pad switches like the X3 Live I used for a long time with my SLO, will work fine.
