I certainly look forward to trying out an axe-fx. Just wish the next pod would aim as high. We shall see. Have to remind myself of why I sold the pods, super convenient but the sound was the issue.

Get your ass in gear line6!

hey guys sorry for bothering... i was thinking in getting a line 6 fm4, but a friend told me to buy a pod, that has more effects, and whatever...

the pod's quality is quite inferior to the fm4 right?

im not convinced by having so much stuff in a little pedal

i used to hate the pod sounds until i´d send the pod´s out to a real amp, and wow, big diference.
Just to mention, with pod you need the best guitar pickup you cant get.
Sometimes pod direct can gives you a nice sound too, is far from be as useless unit

Yes. A tube stage and "real" guitar speakers will take most of the digital edge off. My PODxt through my '65 Princeton sounds great, takes the place of a dozen pedals on the floor, and I'm still playing through a tube amp.

Each thing for what it does best. Don't sell.

+1

i use it live with a Mesa-Boogie caliber .50 combo. most of the times using only the power amp section of the amp. miked by a sennheiser e906... and it sounds awesome...

most of the times when i am recording i just mike the Mesa up and also record a DI and then add some interesting plugins on the way, pedals are always minimal too... but 30% of the time (shimmering clean chorused guitar, or textural effects...for one) the PODxt i have is awesome. if i need an even brighter sound i might use a bit of the di sound itself on clean passages.

It's another tool to have around the studio and a worthy one at that.
