    Yes you can get it to work in Cubase.

    What version of POD are you using? (2.0, XT, XT Pro, XT Live)
    and what Cubase version are you using? (LE, SE, SL, SX, old ver. 2)

    Have you updated your ASIO Drivers to ver. for your POD using the Line 6 Monkey?

    Line 6 USB

    you can't.

    the line 6 pod xt live does not transmit audio into a DAW over the USB cable.

    you have to use the 1/4" outputs on the xt live or headphones plugged into the xt live to monitor any sound from the unit.

    the USB connection is only for loading/transferring patches & controlling
    the settings using Line6 edit or GuitarPort software.

    i think the TonePort may do what you're looking for, but i'm not sure.

    2012 & hafsteinn,

    I'm inexperienced with the LIVE.

    I do use both XT and XT Pro in the studio and am very experienced with those two models.

    I've checked with Line 6 and here's what I've found for you:

    Link removed
    USB - PODXT Live’s USB jack lets you connect to most computers and record directly to a wide variety of popular recording software packages. We’ve even included a USB cable for use with our GuitarPort® Windows® based software and PODXT Live Mac®/Windows® driver software. All this software - along with directions for using it - is free for you to download at http://.

    OK, what that tells me is that the LIVE driver will be configured similar to our Pro (in fact it is the very same driver). So DIGITAL AUDIO over USB to the ASIO/WDM POD XT Driver is possible using the LIVE and does not require ANALOG, line input.

    You can record directly from the USB into Cubase.

    hafsteinn, you've left the cubase version question unanswered... Please tell me which version you use so that I can describe to you how to configure it for use with the POD in detail - there are slight differences between versions.

    for these instructions I'll assume you're using Cubase LE

    With the USB connected to the POD XT Live and the Pod powered on
    Launch the Line 6 Monkey.

    Go to Start / Control Panel / Pod XT
    Configure your POD xt Live v2.6.8.0 ASIO Driver.
    Probably want to use 48,000 and 24 bit

    Open Cubase

    Set up your new project as desired.
    You can set up your project sample rate setting under Project / Project setup
    Select 48000 and 24 bit

    Under Devices / Device Setup / VST Multitrack
    In ASIO Driver field select ASIO PODxt

    You should now be able to record from the USB to the ASIO PODxt driver and into Cubase.
