hey guys

iv considered buying the pod x3 for quite some time now, but is it the best multi FX for its money??

its £250 in my local shop so thats the price, £250

any other great multi FX which is easy to record with and yet great for playing live at gigs etc.

im also a big fan of a nice thick distortion if this helps :P


thanks a lot please let me know what you think

boss stuff is pretty average compared to the Valvetronix multi FX, the technology is based on the VT amps, which are very popular, due to their relative cheapness and availability. great sounding FX, and it has a 12AX7 in it.

the BOSS FX are based on the FX from the roland cube, a much more digital sounding modelling amp.

just plug the output into the computer's LINE IN.

Personally, I think the older Boss GT-6/8 series are great for the money, used of cause.

older BOSS stuff is just the same as all older gear, its just generally better.

just like original 50s gibsons far exceed the standards of the 2008 gibsons, and the 70s fender amps are much better than the modern remakes.

and obviously original 60s plexis are better than the master-volume reissues of today.

its a general rule, that old saying: "they dont make 'em like they used to".

This rule shouldn't apply with digital gear, as computers are getting significantly more powerful and therefore there are better modelling technologies.
I know that's true in the case of software modelling, but it's weird how this rule doesn't seem to apply to some some products such as the Spider III/IV.
