Hey there, I'm a recording newbie and just got an Ethos pedal (TLE). I've been loving it through my amp, and thought I'd at least try out the direct recording option. Gotta say, I'm pretty impressed! Here is the ever popular Gospel Blues BT with some clean channel, low and high gain noodling: http://www.soundclick.com/jeremyjameshall The obvious issue is the noise. Not sure what's doing that, but I really just hooked the pedal up and pressed record, so I haven't fiddled with it. The clean and low gain takes are my strat into the Ethos, then into an MBox. The high gain take is identical, except it's with my 335. Can't say enough about this pedal -- LOTS of knobs, but worth it.
