Post Anyone use Line 6 POD interfaces - need some feedback
I'm looking to buy an audio interface and it appears that Line 6 is the way to go. Anyone have experience using Line 6 stuff on their home recordings? Good? Bad? Any other type of feedback? Thanks in advance.

This album was done with a POD XT (Red kidney bean) direct into a Roland VS1880. I know this isn't using the Line 6 interface but still using direct signal from a POD. It just shows with a little patience and knowing what sound you want you can get great sounds from Line 6 simulators.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGjtMc3b_8Q&list=UUvby-HTlk8HJatCAVDlaUQQ&feature=c4-overview

The interface is one thing. You'll also need software like POD farm or amplitube. Usually the line 6 hardware comes bundled with something.

I use POD farm, Amlitube and TH2. I also use the LINE 6 GX for practicing in my room. All with great results.

i had the pod 2.0 then upgraded to the pod xt. i really didn't like the tones in the xt although with it being 100% digital and with expanded settings it was very versatile. What i ended up doing was buying another 2.0 with the fvb board connection. It has less cab and amp choices but, to my ears, sounds much more natural than the later model pods.

I use it direct in for recording and really like the tones for rock and metal.

The Pod HD series absolutely destroys the xt and any other previous pods.

I used to have a pod 2.0 bean. It was ....ok, but not really. Sold it pretty quickly.

If you're on a budget I'd also suggest checking out Zoom's newer processors (the G3, G3x and G5). I've had my G5 for almost a year now, and it still surprises me sometimes. The only downside I've found about it is that as a sound interface it only supports 44.1 khz sampling. (whereas the POD is fixed at 48, but has internal sample rate conversion of up to 96 kHz) .....Despite this, it sounds excellent.

Now if you're just talking just audio interfaces ...I'd personally skip the L6 one and go for Presonus, Focusrite or Apogee. Any sound interface you get will be compatible with software like Amplitube, Guitar Rig, free vst's *LePou <3*, etc.
All of the interfaces i just mentioned cost around or maybe a little bit more than the L6 UX2, and they all have better preamps built in. The only advantage the L6 unit has is the compatibility with the PodFarm software.... which IS a fucking joke compared to the other choices out there (again, amplitube, guitar rig, TH2, Peavey Revalver III etc.) or when compared to the software in the HD series POD units.

I was more partial towards the Behringer v-amp 2 back in the day. I was thinking of selling it, if you're interested.
