Hi. Firstly, I'm sick of gassing pedals because I don't really have a lot of money. So basically what I want to happen is to sell all of my modulation and buy the podxt live for my modulations. I'm just gona bypass all if it's features when I only want my distortion to be active. Or bypass the amp and cabs if i want my delay or chorus or phaser to run with my dist. So basically my setup will be, guitar>noise gate>wah>OD>disto>podxt live>amp.

So my questions are, is it ok to plug my analog pedals to the pod without any tone suck? Is it good to have the pod as my modulation effects running with my dist and other analog pedals?

Should be fine, dont see why not.

Although by gassing do you mean using batteries?

You could buy a daisy chain for like 10 dollars and power them all off of one 9v adapter and keep the seperate pedals, would be a lot better than a POD imo.

Nah man, he means GASing like he's dying to buy pedals. You know that feeling when you really want a piece of gear, be it a guitar, amp, effects or whatever. That's what he means.

EDIT: I know what he means but what doe sit actually stand for? If I were to have a guess, I would say Guitar Anxiety Syndrome. Anyone help me on this?

You should just forget the whole "analog vs. digital" thing because in the end, it doesn't matter. All that matters is the quality of the pedals - digital pedals will suck your tone if they're bad quality, and analog pedals will suck your tone if they're bad quality. If they're good, they won't hurt your tone.

As far as using the Pod only for modulation, I have always gotten the impression that it's strongest point is the amp modelling, and the effects are just something to add into it. I suggest you try it out to see if the effects are good enough quality-wise.

Edit: I believe it's "Gear Acquisition Syndrome" or something like that, not completely sure.

if u've got a pod xtlive, u dun need those pedals (noise gate>wah>OD>disto).
the pod itself has them. n its ezier to bring only the pod than bringing so many pedals.

It's easier to just use a Spider III instead of using a different amp and a separate pedal... if you get my point.

No I'm not saying the XTLive is as bad as a Spider, just gave an example

I think this guy does not get it. I want to keep those pedals so I can still have an analog sound. I will not even use the distortion and amp models because they are digital. Basically I only want chorus, phaser, delay and other things out of it. Steve vai does this. With his TC and his keeley ds1 and morley.

Before you say that you need to try the POD. I sold my TS 808, because i liked the way the POD came on better. The only thing I run in front of it now is a mxr 108 and frankly there are some digital sounding things in the POD and certain stuff i will have no use for ever, but there are also some pretty outstanding effects and models. Lots of them! Once you start messing with the POD (and it's not going to happen overnight, it took me a good month to get it to start sounding really good). Internally the thing is huge. The subdirectories and adjustments are important. Cab choices, mic settings etc. this is not a simple little 2 knob pedal. if all you want is chorus, phaser and delay you may not even want to bother with a POD, because your basically buying a super computer to add 2+2.
