JCM-900
JCM-2000
Triple Rectifier
Cornford MK50

thats pretty fucking amazing, and probably the best im gonna get without investing in a good tube amp.


I can guarentee none of those samples will sound anything like the real thing.

I guess it depends how much time you want to be at your computer. Because unless you've got a laptop you're pretty much confined to one space to play guitar...with an amp.

it works for me because:

1. its sooo portable, i could sit on my sofa with my headphones on and play, i could even walk out of the house with the pod in my bad and play. it has a direct headphone out socket. and with the screen you can chose everything you want directly from it.

2. its also alright for me because i can also connect it to hifi's aswell

3. i keep my guitar next to my pc and i always near or at my pc, so its cool

im sold

im gonna try and get a new one from ebay usa. the fucking brits are charging 224, i found it for 145 on ebay usa.

Anyone who actually expects this 100$ piece of equipment ( with a 50$ add on ) to sound as good as an Uberschall, 5150II or an Engl is a very, very silly person. This product was'nt even meant to be used directly in place of said boutique amplifiers. It was meant to turn your personal PC or laptop into a guitar practice and recording workstation for a very small sum of money. If you want great tone and feel for live performance, I think anyone with common sense ( and reasonably good taste ) will be able to discriminate between the GuitarPort and an actual amplifier.

What it does, for the money you're paying, is quite a great deal, but to think that it will perfectly replicate those amplifiers is beyond ludicrous, and the GuitarPort is no replacement for a great amplifier head/cabinet.

You'll only be able to venture outside your home with the unit if you have a laptop.

And the GuitarPort sounds great through hi-fi computer speakers. You'll enjoy it.

yea, your rite. who ever does expect it to be a direct replacement of amazing heads and cabs is a retard.

but im in need of a practice amp and instead of getting a cube or spider, i might aswell get this.

btw, can u use a pod xt without a pc? like do you need a pc with it to make it work?

agreed,
but it's $50 for a ton of added flexibility. i mean, for good high gain tones, the stock presets and voicings are mostly crap. this might give him some better sounds to work with.

haha, wtf!

I tried the guitar port too, it was decent. I have no real use for something like it I guess but it seems like a nice gimmick.

the usual pod and pod xt just sucked plastic ass if you ask me...

Do you think that the add-on would really have better sounds, or would it be just more of the same?

I haven't realy looked into this, but how would you do that add-on? Is it software you install? Firm-ware you upload onto the guitar-port? Is the guitar-port (the hardware) only the input, or does it do fx and amplification itself too?

I'm not looking to buy one, but I'm quite curious.

Basically it would be a patch. The red guitarport itself functions as a hardware bypass between your guitar and the computer, and you're paying most of your money for the GuitarPort cd, which contains the actual information ( amps, effects whatnot ).

If I wanted something like that, I would just download IK's Multimedia AmpliTube or Native Instruments Guitar Rig.

*searching soulseek now*

But if I do install the program, how do I plug my guitar into the computer, is there a seperate unit I buy for that, or can I just use my guitarport?

Your GuitarPort should work, failing that, an adapter into your PC's soundcard.

Damn, check out the prices:

AmpliTube: 205

Guitar Rig: 275

I'll search for some torrents.

Edit: Amplitube is actually a plug-in for shit like Cubase, Pro Tools, CoolEdit,etc.

I've looked at some of the user reviews for Guitar Rig, and as it happens, many users hated it.
