Hey guys i need help wih tis one. Ive read manuals/reviews, adn everyhitng about these two. They are about the same price. For any of you that have tried or own one of these please tell me how good it is. I want a multi-effects pedal with alot of sounds for recording adn jamming. Ps I already owned a Digitech multi effects, adn it wasnt so good.

imo, greatest multi FX ever, vox tonelab SE

after that is the pod xt live, followed closely by the gt-8.

the tonelab sounds much more natural, imo.

dont plug into the amps input. plug it into the FX send, other wise it will sound like ass.

i can't comment on the gt-8 but the podXT sounds excellent when doing some studio recording or playing through a PA

GT-8 pwns the pod live and for effects, and since you record from your amp they will both be the same recording so for the you the GT-8 will be much better, a small tube combo would be much better though

i looked at both the GT-8 and the GT-6 when i bought my GT-6 and they were both very good but i didnt have the money for the GT-8 so i got a used GT-6, this was back in november and i still love it, it has the best distortion but the only thing i dont love about it is its wahs

I have the GT-6 and am very happy with it. 2 years and no problems whatsoever and I'm really pleased with the sound quality.

Boss is better with effects, but XT live's amp models are imho way more usable; especially after metal shop-upgrade.

Line6 also has great and easy-to-use editor software and POD XT can be used as an external ASIO-compatible sound card.

As usual, you should go and try them both.

Crappy gear, crappy skills. But at least I'm damn ugly.

I'd say all around the Xt Live is a better unit just because of how well it does everything. GT-8 is great too and has great tone and tons of bells and whistles to keep you glued to it for ages. GT-8's effects are also better. But I don't like its models and it's convoluted interface makes it a pain in the ass.

all else aside, which one do u think has a better variety for effects/unique sounds for recording. eventually im getting a new amp, so i dont care as much about the amp models (i still want great sounding ones though........), but i want someting with enough variation in effects so i dont have to buy 20 stopboxes....

when i look at the specs, line6 seems to have more effects? (ie: 2 different compressors, lots of different stompbox modelling), but do they sound liek crap?
although i do love Boss's dual cosm modeling (where the picking dynamics change the amp model)

boss's effects are much better qaulity than line6's, this is one of the points which pretty much everybody agrees upon, there are so many crazy effects you will never get bored, and you can make your own patches and place them wherever you want

EDIT: i dont think zoom effects are anything special

em you should change that crappy spider II first man pedals dont make that much diffrence compared to a whole new amp.

Get a decent tube amp first or try one out at ur guitar store trust me youll like it.
