I need some help in finding the pod which can suit my needs the most (who knows, you might convince me not to buy one or find a perfect match).

So first of all, my equipment:
Guitar: Ibanez fmtl36 (with a passive DiMarzio D-activator bridge pickup)
Sound card/Interface: Fast Track Pro (link: Right here! ).
Recording programme: Pro Tools MP.
Amp: Vox VT30

My budget is about 430-580$ or 340-450€

What I need it for: Home recording, practice with the band and gigs!

What I usually play is any kind of metal or rock, so I'd want a pod (preferable floorpod) to fit my needs.

I'm thankful for any helping suggestions and motivations.

Rock on!

Line6 Pod XT Live should do the trick, I have one and I find it very reliable in all situations, I use it live direct in a pa, in an amp and also directly in the computer for recording. I have´nt had the chance to try the newer models but I´m sure they are just as good or better.
I agree with the above. I found a used xt live a couple years ago and I have used it for two albums, and countless shows. I have presets specifically for live shows, for practice, and for studio stuff. ( live and studio patches are world's away from eachother with these). I do have an external wah though. Didn't care for the wah in it.
Pod hd300, thank me later ;-)
Running through:

Engl Fireball
Engl Slanted Cab
Ibanez Xiphos
Schecter C-1 FR Black
Ibanez GRG (on its way)

Boss Noise Gate, Zakk Wylde Overdrive, Boss Tuner, Zakk Wylde Wah.

With your budget, there is no reason to not get one of the HD models.
