So I'm new to recording as in I've never recorded but I would like to start

I am at a loss however I am trying to find a way to record using a pod xt live connected with a USB directly to my computer but I'm having no luck

so with that if anyone would like to help with a step by step aid that would be nice just assume that I have a USB cable, reaper or audacity and a pod xt live (plus obvious stuff like computer, guitar, cable)

thanks for making an old dude feel like his advice is actually taken into consideration
If you've downloaded the latest drivers from Line 6, load up Reaper, go to Options (might be under tools? Not sure, don't have it on my iPhone :P ). Go to Devices and change the top drop down to ASIO Line 6 POD. Click ok and that should be it. Now arm a track for record and go

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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