hey guys
i have a lot of gear for a live setup, but i really want to get my playing onto youtube and get into recording and video editing

i plan on buying a macbook for school, so i figured garageband or maybe another recording program would cover this part...
but otherwise i have a line 6 pod XT (use the midi?) and a peavey 6505+ that im also getting midi by using a gmajor through it

i have condenser mics that i use at band practice, i can mic my cab too...but what else would i need?

noob at recording! please help!

Nice head. GarageBand is great, and... You'd need a video camera? Hahaa...
I would get a bunch of stuff for hooking up the head to the computer, avoid any crappiness that the mics may give out, just straight-shot, clean as hell.

Kinda a noob myself, sorry...

Dont bother with MIDI ****. You dont record with it. For the XT, you the outputs into your mic slot on your laptop (you may need a $2 converter) For your 6505+, if you can get a good cheap interface, such as http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/MAudio-Fast-Track-USB-Computer-Recording-Interface?sku=703606

Then, use the effects loop send to plug into the interface. Then use a DAW that supports VSTs, like Reaper (free) and download some cabinet impulses (found here https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1131250 ) and put them on your DAW using Kefir (free) You will get better recording quality then any POD could ever get, and most of it is free!! (read that article in the second link)

Epiphone SG
Ibanez RG2EX1

Line 6 Vetta
Peavey Vypyr 15 for teh lulz

^^ So, that's plugging the guitar direct into the POD or the computer..? Hypothetically, say you have a head and a pedalboard already, do go through the output on the back of the head instead of a VST?

I tried to read up. Migrane and I'm too damn tired to try to comprehend a wall of text over-complicating simple questions I have.

Sorry, man.
