I want to replace my Zoom pedal. So I want to know what the best modeler is. Like super versatile. Easily connected to a computer. Doesn't need to have TONS of effects. Because I can do that on my computer. This will be for just recording, late night jamming, and TONS of tweaking. I love tweaking a sound in. Money won't really matter. I can save up. But something under a grand would be awesome.

I was looking up Axe-FX stuff. I can't even find where to get a price on them. But I hear they are around 2000. Do you think a POD HD would do me better than an Eleven Rack?

If you can afford an 11R over the Hd, take the 11R.

if not the 300/400/500 is a very very good bit of kit for home and giging use.

I'll look into the PODs. I would love to save money if I can. Do they have a good Marshall model? Do they have nice mid to low gain models?

This sounds really nice. Pretty much what I am looking for I think. POD HD500 it is.

Im loving the JCM 800 sounds you got. I am going to see what differences the 300/400/500 have. Seen which one isn't going to be best for me.

are you ever going to gig it?

Do you need all 120 effetcs?

Do you just want the amp models?

If the answer to the above is Yes, Yes, No.

Get the 500. If its the other way round, get a 300.

I use a 300.

No gigging. I am getting a new amp for that. I need delay, reverb. If that. I want just models/stompbox models.

they have more feature the higher the model #. the Bean needs a FBV SB MK2 to run "on the fly while the pod 300/400/500 are built in to a pedal board.

What's the advantage of having the bean. Just because it's easier to transport?

the hd500 is roughly 2 feet long. it isnt terribly big.

the amp models on the pod hd are great and if you were only using it for that, it would work.

just as an alternative though, maybe try looking into a pod xt/x3. you can find them for pretty cheap used. since it will only be for at home recording and jamming it might be smarter.

if you go to my profile and click view all mp3s, there are some old recordings of my podxtlive. the track "demo" it a few high gain patches, demo 2 i believe has a few good ones as well. but anyway, the point is that you can get great sounds out of the older pods as well and they might be a smarter option for your purposes

For home recording i dunno. I'd probably just get a ux2 over an xt/x3. Much handier... pretty much the same thing in software form and cheaper plus you get a pretty decent interface with xlrs and the like too ...

Also if you're recording and want to use your own cab sim/impulses... get the 500 eh tom



Oh shit yeah, this for sure.

though the cabs are easy to work around, just dont use the treadplate V30 cab

I will look into it. My Zoom is just doing some odd stuff and not cutting it. I guess I don't need the best because I won't really be playing live or showing anyone but band members what I come up with. Its just nice to sound awesome. So PODs are basically the way to go for amp models? I had a BOSS gt-6 and was wondering about the GT-10. Is that one any good? Or are PODs better? What about Vox?

pods are pretty much the leader of amp modeling besides the eleven rack and axe fx.

also, TOM, have you tried using the phd ported cab? i think it sounds pretty awesome paired with the recto. i also kinda like the recto v30 cab, although you CAN'T use it with the sm57 on axis. gross...ahahah.

Pod it is then. 11Rack/AxeFX money can go to making my live sound better. Ill most likely go with the XT/X3 or the HD. Whichever I see first used honestly. I don't think I would use the dual amp thing because I double track anyway. I guess it would eliminate the need for me to. But its not a need.

Forget the XT / X3, just go pick up an HD.

And with an 11R / AxeFX and a power amp and cab, you'd make your live sound more than just BETTER. There are many big names out there in the music industry using the Axe FX LIVE because not only is it easier to carry around, it's one unit with everything you NEED both gigging and recording.

POD HD500 if you don't want to sell a kidney.

Axe FX otherwise.

I can speak for the HD500's awesomeness. The only thing it's lacking is a few more amp and effects models, really. Well, the cab simulation could be better in terms of mics. I love how Amplitube lets you have two mics without having to set up identical rigs, and it lets you place them wherever you want, whereas the only mic you can have off-axis on the POD HD is the SM57.
