I stumbled across the Line 6 Pod Studio GX, which looks just like what I want. However, i want to know if it fits what I want to play. I like to play clean acoustic songs and ballads, and several types of metal (old school metal, power metal)

And is it any good? Does it have a good sound? Is it good for recording stuff?

I have a Mac. Does it work with that?

the POD Studios can get whatever sound you want out of them. Yes, it works with Macs.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Thanks. Anyone else? Line 6 is known for their bad Spider III amps, right?

Yes they are, but you're talking about two completely different things here.

digital modeling gear for recording and a cheap ass digital modeling amp for beginners.

The POD range is generaly considered to be pretty good (though differant people have differant tastes).

i don't have any latency issues...
i think its great :-)

i've heard the odd person say they had latency issues with the toneport but i haven't heard anyone have issues with the newer version, podstudio.

that is completly dependent on your computer and has nothing to do with the program itself.

speaking as a gx owner, i can say that it sounds like dog sh1t. I will also say that if that puts you off, you are missing the point. it is handy with lots of useful features as well as plenty things to play around with.

if you use the recording output of an amp and use the gx as a speaker sim, you can get a half decent tone. you will need to play around with presents and the parametric eq though.

my friend has one and its great. he actually uses it as a bass amp for church. he had latency issues when he got it, but making sure all programs are closed, setting up the bit rate, etc have made it have 0 latency. for cheap good recordings the pod studio rules

Okay.

I want to use it as my recording amp and main amp, though. Is it suited for that?
