I've never played a POD before, but I've been looking to get a better bass multi-fx since I go DI at church, and the thing that interested me in that and the guitar version is the USB abilities. So, would they be a good idea to invest in, or is there a better multi-fx for around the same price? By the way, the ones I was looking at were the Bass POD XT Live and the Guitar POD XT Live.
Well, the Pod has made my recording really really easy. I have it connected to the computer via USB all the time and the computer recognizes it and I just have to click "Record"

check out my YouTube account, there are a few things about the pod.
