“In my electric rack, I've been using the Line 6 Pod Pro,” says Fleck. “I use a little bit of delay and not much distortion, but occasionally I want some crunch. Sometimes I like it to crunch when I'm doing single-line stuff. And there's a really nice chorus and some good amp sounds in the Pod. After playing a lot of digital guitar processors, I've found that a lot of them don't play well. They sound good, but you can't play through them. They slow you down. But the Line 6 sounds good and feels really good to play through.”more
The amp and cab emulation is great. Lotsa power packed into a 2U unit. Great to have the digital and analog outs, the multiple options are great. Stompbox effects, mods, wahwah and all other effects (aside from the plate reverb and the digital delay) are awful. Amps sound great, stick with pedals for distorted/fuzz/phaser/chorus/reverb effects. I'm slowly mobing back to pedals. Compression doesnt help much, so a separate compressor unit is very useful. Very transparent and clearly a winner.
