Hi there,
last year I bought a Hughes and Kettner Switchblade (50w combo). It's at my dorm now and is a tad bit too big to carry around with me when I'm going home and as I have my own laptop now it would be great to be able to play the guitar on it when I'm somewhere else and most importantly I want to be able to record my stuff as well...
So I thought a Pod Studio would be my best bet, kind of confusing as I always remembered it as a toneport...
I can afford the GX, UX1 or UX2. But I don't want to waste money on features I don't even plan on using... if you know what I mean, what's the point eh

So what it needs to do:
- Record my guitarplay
- Don't know if it's possible but record my physical amp?
- Maybe headphone support as well but I can just hook it directly at my laptop anyways right?

erhm... That's about it I guess, what are the main advantages of the more expensive versions? Do they all perform equally?

Thanks a lot

UX2, mic your amp. Riffworks sounds like it'd work for you too, it lets you record loops and etc, check it out

If you wanted to use any kind of decent mic, you'd want the UX1. Otherwise, the GX should be fine.

You mean the UX2 is the only one that can mic my amp?

Do you imply that there is a difference in decency/quality between the UX1 and the GX then?

thanks for the quick responses

All there really is for difference is the mic input on the UX1.


To answer your other question as well. The UX1 can mic your amp too. Getting a UX2 would just give you a bunch of inputs your not going to use.

yeah ux1 is all you need, i bought it.

the main difference i found was that the ux2 had some analogue displays on the box which i prob wouldnt use, although they look nice.

you can mic up (and line out) your amp into ux1, so thats all you really need.

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

If you plan on using a condensor mic you'll need to buy a phantom power box if you get the UX1, the UX2 has it built-in.

I have no idea what a condensor mic is so I guess I'll not need it :p


Thanks for the replies everyone, UX1 it is then
