So I've never purchased any, and don't know anything about them.
I've just been recording through an old camera.

My budget is under 250 CAD
I've seen some products like..Line 6 POD.
What exactly does a POD do?

I've checked out the Pocket Line 6
Line 6 2.0
and the Line 6 Studio UX2.

I play mainly rock.

Anyone clear the fog up for me?
thanks!

You don't need a POD. You can record through your Vypyr with the headphone out connected to the line in on your computer.

Would the quality differ with a big gap between just plugging my vypyr through the computer, and using a POD? :O

Wait a sec, so what cable would you use?
I mean seeing as the Vypyr 30 has no usb output

Yeah I have the line thing.
But I don't know how to record.
I've tried the Sound Recorder from XP.

Which free program can I use to record sounds directly?

which sounds like utter crap. yes, it is better than plugging your guitar straight into the line in (which is really bad), but most soundcards are not built with good analog to digital converters.

which means something like the UX2 is a much, much better option. there are a few audio interfaces under or around the $100 mark. picking up one of them is my recomendation.

for programs, audacity is completly free, but i suggest you only use it if you have to. reaper is a much, much better option. the demo never runs out, so you never are forced to pay for it. however, a license is only $60, so if you can scrape that together eventually, it is very much worth paying for. i highly recomend it.


and ill move this to the recordings forum.

Headphone output -> Line in.

but i cant hear the amplifier, i only hear the guitar unplugged. but it does record.
you need a some soundcard i believe..? :S

will this issue be the same even if i purchased the Line 6 UX2?

Your computer has to have a sound card or you wouldn't be able to hear anything out of your computer. I don't really understanding about the guitar unplugged and it records part, but you may have the options for the source or something set wrong. I'm not really sure though, but like i said i didn't really understand that part.
