Ok so im trying to get some recording equipment since every song I have recorded thus far has been in guitar pro V 5.2 with Real Sounds Engine (WHICH YOU CAN AND SHOULD LISTEN TO IN MY PROFILE ). Anyways I was thinking of getting one of these two, I didnt know if first off anyone had any experience or input on either model, or if anyone knew if the 150 dollar one was worth getting over the 70 dollar one.....any input would be nice, thank you. I play mostly metal and would using midi for drums and such.

150$

Looks like you're just paying $80 for Pod Farm. Not sure if it's worth it. Maybe someone here can say. I had a GuitarPort a long time ago. It was a pretty good unit.

POD farm is waaaayy better than Line 6 modelling program, I'd do it just for that software.

If you are set on using modeling software then I would look at guitar rig over the Line 6 stuff. The interface is better than the line 6 too.

I've heard good things about the unit and the software. You could always upgrade to better software (guitar rig 3, axefx, etc) later since you'd have a good unit for plugging your guitar into your computer.

The expensive one has the pod farm software which is basically a pod in your computer. I'd say go for that if you're using your computer to create your tones, otherwise the cheaper one does the same thing I think.

I'm not 100% on all that, but I'm pretty sure that I'm right.

good point, ive used it very very breifly at my friends house but unless im mistaken that program is upwards of like 300 or 400 dollars? haha being in school and working weekends at staples doesnt exactly pay me enough to buy that and still have money for car insurance,books and food

yeah the biggest reason i was looking at these two was for the unit that came with it to plug into the computer cause i currently dont have one, and you are right about upgrading to guitar rig once i save up enough, thanks for the input so far everyone

Umm... POD Farm is a Line 6 modeling program...

IMO POD Farm IS better than Gearbox, but I don't think it's worth $80 more.


I had the old UX2, and I was able to upgrade from Gearbox to POD Farm for free, I'm not sure if you can with the older UX1, it kinda wouldn't make sense, but either way, POD Farm is only $50...

So my point would be, the cheaper one is better. If you want to upgrade to POD Farm later (and can't for free), it's only $50 instead of $80.

keep in mind that another reason the newer one is 80 bucks is not only because of pod farm, but the hardware is a bit different- it has USB2.0, which is much much less latent then regular USB.
