Well for the last year or so i've been using a zoom g2.1, which is a decent proccesor apart from one problem, every single amp sim on it is incredibly sloppy and unusable.
im in search of a super tight distorted sound and im wondering if the pod 2.0 could do such a thing.
i don't care to have 999,999,999db worth of gain to get a good metal tone , as i usually use the amps voicing rather than pure gain.
im looking for a 5150/6505 style tone , even though thats asking for alot.

i have listened to numerous soundclips from the line 6 website and they sound over processed and sloppy, so im wondering if anyone here has some soundclips of there own.

no, dont get a line 6 pod, a year or two down the road you'll be complaining just like you are about your zoom. stay away from multi effects processors in general

in my opinion line 6's pods are way too digital sounding, i had a floor pod, and got such crappy gain out of it......and it sounded fake
why not just buy a preamp or something
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)

The thing is im practically broke and would only be able to afford the old version rather than the xt.



x3. Not XT. The new pod.

Truth is, if you want something that doesn't sound digital, you're gonna have to get something that isn't digital. The End.

well i was also thinking that i could get an analog high gain distortion pedal and run it through my zoom ,so i can use the zoom for cleans and effects and the pedal for distortion.
any suggestions for pedals under $300aus?

yeah i thought the gain in the pod 2.0 sounded really digital and fake, and all the distortion on every amp model sounds the same, but the XT and X3 are vastly improved.

Metal Muff sounds like your thing. For the love of God, please don't get an MT 2 though. Hunk of shite.

what could the voicing of a metal muff be compared to ?
also i like to use a fair amount of mids rather than just scooping them, are the mids well defined and such?
#11
It's pretty much a flat EQ, really. Loads of knobs to play with (giggle), gives you loads of potential voicings, so the world is your mollusc of choice there.

How 'bout the pod x3? You know, the new one? The one that's probably better?


Was the Spider III better than its predecessor?
