Hey,

Is there anyone here who has the model packs for the POD Farm?
I'm thinking about getting the metal add-on pack but what I'm looking for is if there's a model there that has a metal distortion that isn't so loose and sloppy which is what i encountered on the stock model on the POD Farm. (Unless I'm not EQ'ing it right? It's just too fuzzy and bassy for me I've screwed around with pedals and different amp models and couldn't get a decent tone)

Is it worth the upgrade?

I'm kinda looking for tone that's sort of like Dream Theater-esque.
Maybe Metallica's tone off Death Magnetic.
Just tight distortion basically, maybe if it has some mesa boogie amps in there.

I want to do this one day too.
What is the difference between the regular and platinum version? Is platinum like regular plus all the add on packs?

the metal pack is really worth it most of the new amps are useable for tight high gain tones but pretty much all of them require the screamer infront of them
Amps:
Orange Rocker 30
Marshall JCM 800 1960 4x12
Guitars:
Ibanez SAS32EXFM White
Epiphone SG G400
Pedals:
Boss SD-1
Boss GE-7
Behringer TU-300

Yes.

I have Platinum - The Metal Pack amps are VERY much worth the upgrade IMO.

This is POD Farm, raw with the Diamond Plate model:

For a tighter tone, you can head over to my "band's" myspace at myspace.com/illariarock, the song "Death Sensitive" is all POD Farm.

One thing I did when I had Gearbox (same sounds/modeling as POD Farm, just different GUI) was put the rotary effect in my high gain tones. Don't make it crazy, just barely noticeable. But it really does fatten up your sound. Also, as someone else said, use the Screamer. Turn down the amp's gain a little and let the Screamer do the dirty work (get it? that was a pun).

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

Cool then I can just get the add ons instead of buying platinum.
I don't use POD Farm much at all, but that's because I have Peavey Revalver and the 6505 is my favorite amp, so why not get the most official 6505 VST you can get?

BUT that doesn't mean I don't like POD Farm, it has some great stuff and I'm sure it would get even better with those add ons.


POD Farm is basically POD X3 as a computer software right?

If you had Platinum, yes.

POD Farm Standard is like having a POD XT.


BTW - Platinum is on sale at AudioMIDI.com for $150 (has been for a while).

Hm I might get POD X3 some day then because it would be cool to play POD Farm in an actual guitar setup and amp.

Not really, POD Farm is more extended and just sounds better.

To me at least.

Damn, if that really is from the POD Farm, I'm sold. It's the kinda tone I'm looking for.
Pretty nice jam there too.

I saw some stuff from youtube as well about the metal pack, it definitely looks good now, the stock POD Farm isn't so metal friendly, it has some nice jazz cleans though and some old classic tones which would be useful here and there.

Doesn't pod farm 2 contain Mesa Dual rec head? thats what they use on Death magnetic
No ego-inflating quotes nor stupidly long signatures to be found here.

Move along.

Nah, I updated to POD Farm 2, and it basically had the same models and settings as the first POD Farm. That head is part of the metal pack add-on I think.
