Ive Been Recording Latley and havent been happy with my sound becuase(yes sad to say i am a spider 15 watt n00b) But i grew ears and relized wow that sounds this crap. So i wanted to start recording diffrently so i am buying a Line 6 POD Studio GX with POD Farm, yes i know i just said i was against this but i have heard nice things about this line 6 product. I was looking to spend around 300 dollars but since its only 100 i have 200 to improve my sound. What Should i get to Get a Better Tone.I play Lamb of God, Protest The Hero, The Human Abstract so more metal,tech metal based THANKS!!!

Personnaly i think you should just use a micro and record it directly in your computer than edit it with a studio software, the sound will be very good. (Before doing this buy an amp).

the POD Farm works like a charm. Its basically the power of the POD on your computer. Ive compared it to my POD X3 and the sounds are exactly the same.

You could upgrade to a toneport UX1? Buy some entry level recording software?
There's not really much else you can buy to improve the quality of amp sims, just make sure you have some good speakers/headphones for your PC.

Mangeu, I'm pretty sure the Farm is the software. But yes, buy a new amp. For this, I suggest sell your spider, get a Peavey Vypyr 15, it's $100, or 30 watt, because it's 100 more, and you should have that if you sell the spider full price. That's the first thing you should do. In tone and quality sound, I can't give you much advice, so I'll leave it there.
Save a trip to the RT!

Unless you really really like the sound of amp models.

Try all of those amps before you buy them. If you got the Windsor (or any other tube head), you'll need a cab. The Windsor reportedly does not do cleans well, so take that into consideration as well.

get the pod studio, theres no point of getting a practice amp when you get get a good multi-fx or thing like this for the same price. to make it sound good though, i would get studio monitors like http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/MAudio-Studiophile-AV40-Speakers?sku=600092 and drum software like http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Toontrack-Drumkit-from-Hell-EZX-Sample-Library?sku=700777 for recording

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

The POD doesn't sound that bad, but if you have a job you may want to consider saving up a little and getting a nice tube amp.

dont get that.
get a better amp
get this http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/TC-Electronic-Desktop-Konnekt-6-Firewire-Audio-Interface?sku=180229
and then get a shure sm57 http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Shure-SM57-InstrumentVocal-Mic?sku=270102
or a senhiser e609 http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Sennheiser-E609-Silver-Dynamic-Guitar-Microphone?sku=276668

dont get the line 6 crap, no matter what people say, you will learn soo much more and get better tone than any other line 6 can. cause you would be recording the REAL thing.
