I have been looking at :

Line 6 POD XT and X3 live
Digitech RP350/500
Zoom G9.2tt
Boss GT-10 (probably a bit too expensive)

Basically i want decent tones for death metal/ experimental/ prog/ jazz.
How good are the tones when recorded via USB into a laptop.

Any advice?

I've got a POD that works really well for recording and the tone transfers fairly well to the computer...

Though the genres you mentioned...Case and point -- Opeth. And they use GT-10's live for all their tones...

Good luck.


Ive heard the PODs are well known for this type of thing.

Also, ive just realised i posted an identical thread so sorry for the waste of space!
