You're going to run into latency issues when using the USB. Just use the analog outs on the XT. I've had a XT Pro for a week now and haven't had any issues using the coaxial S/PDIF outputs into a Roland VS-1880.

Good luck and have fun!

Typically you want to reduce the number of D/A and A/D converstions (that's digital to analog or vice versa). Guitar to POD = 1 A/D, then POD to 1/4" out = another D/A, the into your PC = another A/D. Whereas going SPDIF you only have the guitar to POD A/D, that's it. You stay digital the whole time, as long as your soundcard can handle 24 bit. don't know if it produces an audible difference in sound quality, but I figure all those conversions can't be helping...less is more.
