Okay, the problem is almost certainly within the XT.
I dug out my POD 2.0 and, without changing anything on the Onyx, connected the POD analog outs to the Onyx. No fizz or buzz at all.
So, as I suspected, I must have hit or switched something on the XT in my experimentation, and I don't know how to get it back to normal.

You have almost certainly changed the output mode. Check the "What am I connected to?" part of the manual. You have probably set the output to a mode intended for external amps without cab modelling. For direct recording you want cab modelling otherwise it will sound fizzy. This is why it sounds OK in the headphones because that defaults to 'Studio' mode. Make sure you're in 'Studio direct' mode.

Woo hoo!!!!!! That's the fix!! It took all of 2 seconds ... once I knew what I was looking for.
Thank you sooooo much! It was driving me crazy.
This XT Pro is an amazing machine, but there's so may bells & whistles, settings, parameters, what have you, that it's easy to get lost in them all.
Thank you, thank you, thank you again!
