Maybe this has been addressed before, I've read some past posts (the POD vs. ToneLab)...but I'm looking for more recording specific info. I'm using Pro-Tools and due to my apartment, cranking my amp is not an option. I can get decent tones at low volumes, but late in the evening...it's not an option. I have a 1st generation POD - it's just OK and not good enough for much more than rough sketches. I'm doing all strat bluesy/jazz, EJ/Clapton-ish types of tones. What products or tricks have you guys used to get "usable" tones with D/I? I know that nothing will compare to a real amp and a mic, but there has to be something out there that delivers workable tones for demo purposes. I've been hearing a lot about the PODxt, VOX ToneLab, V-Stack, SansAmps....etc.. They all seem to have mixed reviews. Thanks.
