Guitar modeling and effects processor?

So I'm not even sure if I called that right... -_-

But, I want to get something like that [Line 6 POD 2, Digitech RP, etc.] but I have no idea which is a good brand or model. I want a unit that offers different amp models and guitar effects as well, but more on the "cheaper" side and of course, not sacrificing quality and performance. I don't want to shell out $300 or even $250 for that fact. We'll say $250 is my limit. I'm also planning to use this just for my bedroom/practice/recording through a computer. I have a Marshall 30 watt and a Line 6 Spider II 75 watt. I might consider wanting to gig with it, but please let me know if that's even possible with the given criterias. So with that said, anybody have any suggestions? Thanks

I suggest save for a POD XT Live or a Digitech GNX3000.

If $250 is a hard limit and you want to buy new, I think the V-amp2/V-amp Pro or the Zoom G2/G2.1 are good bets.

Get a KORG ToneWorks Pandora PX4D Personal Multi-Effect Processor. They're around $170 new, so if you can shell that out buy it! I want one so bad, but I saving up for a new guitar. Everything about can be found at http://www.***************.com/produ...sor?sku=152176

(replace * with m u s i c i a n s f r i e n d) no spaces of course.

Re: Guitar modeling and effects processor?

i got an RP80. my jammming buddy has a GNX3000 and to get the sounds i'm using can take him up to half an hour to configure. that's a lot of wasted time if you don't have any to spare in the first place. although you are limited with an rp80 there are still enough settings to keep you going and the added expression pedal makes up for it.

Re: Guitar modeling and effects processor?

I don't see why the GNX would take so long to configure. It's flexible, but pretty intuitive. I think it's the coolest modeler I ever had (including DG Stomp, Tonelab, V-Amp2, and G2). But it's over the $250 limit. I got mine for $280 on the bay, so maybe not MUCH over the limit, and if $300 is OK, I'd REALLY recommend looking into one.

Re: Guitar modeling and effects processor?

Things in the past 8 months I have owned.

Line 6 PodXT
Behringer Vamp2
Zoom G9.2TT

In about two weeks I will be ordering a PodXT Live cause well I should of never sold it. Its versatile but you dont really notice it till its gone, just how good some of the tones were.

Save your money and get a PodXT your hard pressed to find anything better in my eyes.

V-Amp Pro. LOTS of bang for the buck. Liked it so much I bought the Bass version. Not gigging with it, but for home should be ok.

+1. Very versitile. It pretty much owns for home recording and you can hook it up directly to the PA with the XLR left and right outs. Also the XLR outs do a fun 4X12 cab sim not that there aren't any other sims available but its the nicest

Re: Guitar modeling and effects processor?

I have a Zoom PFX9003, which is sort of a Rockman on steriods, but would
probably be OK for direct recording. I have an RP200 also, which I don't
think much of, sound-wise. The PFX9003 has a few things going for it:
great sounds and features for the price ($100), battery operation, and size
(slightly larger than a deck of cards).

I know. Very odd. What style of music do you play? If you tell us that, then we might be able to find a moddeler more suited to your needs.

Re: Guitar modeling and effects processor?

Well I got a deal of a brand new POD 2.0 for $100 so I think I'll settle with that. Thanks for your suggestion guys!

BTW, I was going to get the V-AMP 2 but I read a lot of reviews that said it had a lot of feedback and excess noise? Is this true?
