i want a great tone for recording, i dont need anything to jam with or gig with. just to record. i'll prefer like computer based stuff. and the sound i'm looking for is like Meshuugah/Periphery/In Flames anything with crushing distortion but still retains clarity and doesnt get muddy when a little bassy like Meshuggah.

i was thinking a POD or the V-amp 2

what do you guys suggest? bceause i am getting **** tones out of my TonePort and my Cube + TonePort.

Thats probably some of the best advice I've ever received on here.

Well, Misha (Periphery) uses a PODxt so that would do his tone. Prolly anything Line6 would cover all of that considering Meshuggah use Line6 as well.

ah, yeah i knew Misha used a PODxt but i didnt know Meshuggah used them.

+1 with a decent DI box to boost the initial signal.
Thank you please.

Computer FX are fair but they never come close to the real thing, they never will IMO...

You can either get some nice hardware like a real amp or high end processor unit (G-major, GT8, GT10, XT live)...

For software you can try Amplitube which is what I use every now and then, its fair...
bit better than Gearbox for sure.
