I've been working in my little budget home studio for a year now, and already released a single and an EP for my band. But as a modern melo/symphonic death metal band we think it's time to do better than that. We have no problem with the drums (ezdrummer rocks), we have a pretty good mic, we also have a good bass preamp, orchestrations are done with EWQL vsti's without any problems. The only problem? Guitars. I used to record them with my Line 6 UX1 and a bunch of free vamps, but since we are releasing an album (better than everything we've done so far), it has to sound GOOD! But since we are on a pretty low budget, I can't afford buying an axe-fx or a good head so I'm between the Line6 POD HD Pro X or something even better, under 1000euros..

P.S: Another reason I'm not buying a head, is because it's not easy to carry around..

I concur.

Also for that money you could always rent a studio for some time and record everything there with whatever nice amp they happen to have...

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.

I disagree, the best/most cost-effective way to record a good sounding album at home is to NOT record at home. Seriously, go to a small studio and they'll have a better interface(s), better mics, probably better amps, better sounding rooms, and better engineers.

Otherwise amp sims, they're as good as those hardware devices and nowhere near as expensive.

Well in Cyprus, where I live, my recordings that it did at home with free plugins are actually better than the recordings done in studios here...
