Though I would start a new thread for this one.

I absolutely love my POD and wish I had the POD Pro. A lot of people are using the POD for bass and vocals. There is a standard DI preset that can be used for both bass and vocals. I don't have a bass (yet) so I haven't tried it.

I'm working on a new song right now and when I'm finished I'll post it on MP3 (unless someone knows someplace better).

Barry,

There has been something I'm dying to try with a Cream Machine. My theory is you can get great studio and live sound by using the CM as you power amp section. In the studio this would work great - say JMP1 --> Cream Maching, live you would then just run the CM into a larger transparent ss power amp.

Could you test this for me. The really great sounds come from a cranked power amp and I think the CM will accomplish this...

Ned

As Barry may tell you, a J Station in the UK is about ?150 which is half its RRP, but is it a worthwhile investment seeing as it is now "outdated"?

Like I said in the "Home Recording" thread, I own a StingRay as well, and want to record that when putting a song down.

Will a "normal" guitar digital modeller do a bass guitar justice if it is used to record? Do I really want to have a model of an Ampeg valve SVT rig plus an 8x10" cab (yes please!). Do any of the other digital amp modellers have bass amp models (except the Fender Bassman) included on them?

Anyone have any experience of playing a bass through a guitar modeller? I currently use my old BOSS ME30 (JC120 Modeled) footboard for both guitar and bass (I like a touch of overdrive on the bass as well as a clean sound) and this is giving some nice results.

So, should I go and get a POD and a Bass POD? Or go and buy a J-Station? Or, should I wonder why no-one has released an "All In One" Home Recording Amp Modeller

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Sky,

Have you checked out the forums at line6.com?
I would bet you can get an answer to the bass though a POD question there.

Not yet, but I will do soon.

Its kind of daft really, all these companies competing to out POD a POD, and yet a lot of Home Recordists want a versatile "One Stop Shop Amp Modeller" that'll do Guitar, Bass, Acoustic and even Vox! I'll stop ranting now.

Barry,

I was thinking of the Crunch/Blues/Bass Masters which have a EL84 tube section. Gotta find one of these.

On eBay there is a H&K CL100 guitar slave. Went to the H&K site and read the manualy, it's solid state power amp designed to work with the cream machine and other half rack pre-amps. Little sucker puts out 100 watts.

Well, I've finally taken the plunge and got myself a POD v2.0.

Had a load of bits laying around that I didnt use anymore, and so took them into one of the local guitar shops and traded them in for a POD.

Still getting to grips with it, but 1A (Big Rectifier) and the Soldano Overdrive are the coolest so far. Tried plugging the bass and acoustic into the Tube Preamp with good results, but I havent recorded anything yet. I'll keep y'awl posted as to how its going!

Update time.

Fallen in love with my POD 2.0, and have a few favourites (especially the Soldano, so much as I'm thinking of saving my pennies to get one!).

I the clean sounds are great for my electro acoustic and my bass, I've been experimenting with both and the best I've found is the JC120 model for the acoustic with a bit of chorus, and a Marshall Plexi (just on the verge of breaking up) with 4x12 cab for the bass.

I've been using a Fender Cyber-Twin for direct recording for over a year and a J-Station for recording bass guitar. I havent tried the POD's but I have messed around with the J-Station some for guitar, but I prefer it for bass. I've heard some clips of guitars through a POD and some of them sounded pretty good to me though I've heard some that sound like crap too. Anyway, these "boxes" are only going to get better as time goes on, it'll be interesting to see (or hear) how much better they will be in a few years. For now I'm thrilled with the Cyber-Twin, It's the best thing I've used for guitar yet. Can anyone here who has used a J-Station and a Bass POD compare the two? Thanks!

thought I would add an update to this thread, been using the POD XT Live for home recording for about 6 months now, really impressed with it and the flexibility of the patches etc are amazing so you can really tweak the sounds you want, then you can take it with you anywhere you go to play !!
