Nice and basic. I have not spent a great deal of time on Pod Farm considering the amp models are noticeably better on the PODHD 400. But I do like the fact that it comes with phantom power and does make recording easy. Not professional quality, but if you take your time it still gets the job done. Useful Line inputs on the back make plugging in a mixer for recording nice and possible. I've recorded vocal groups, guitars (acoustic and electric), Trumpet, Bass and some electric drums. It has been a good go to tool for my beginner recording efforts!
