Most likely digital clipping.
Turn down the channel volume on the Pod.
Sorry, didn't see you tried the chan vol

After ruling out the guitar or chord (long-shot).
You may need to try a reset/reflash, (I've never done this yet, so you might wait for an official Line6 tech to comment)
Make sure you back up all your patches first!!!

Thanks for your reply.
I should have added in my first post that I've flashed the firmware too.
Now the guitar cable...that is something I will definitely try tonight when I get home.
It's a monster cable so it should be ok, but it wouldn't be the first one that had weird tone
problems. I had an XLR cable hooked up to a PA once that was only sending low frequencies.
I thought my speaker was toast, but replacing the cable brought it back to normal.
I hope it is something simple like that.
I obviously listened to the pedal before I bought it, but I was using someone elses guitar, cable, and headphones.
I don't remember hearing this distortion/clipping, but then again, there are some pretty fuzzy
sounds and I was just making sure the thing played. I could have missed the clipping the first time.
Or maybe it wasn't there.
Thanks again and I'll keep you updated when I've tried a different cable.
If the sound is still messed up I will upload a sound clip.

Well, I came home tonight and tried a new guitar cable.No such luck.
Switched guitars. Same sounds.
Finally I noticed in Monkey that I could rollback to the 2.04 drivers (I think that was the number.)
I did that and voila! The problem was fixed. Next I tried flashing the most updated drivers again.
This time everything is working as it should!!
I can't tell you how relieved I am!
Thanks for you help Triryche! I'm awarding you my correct answer points because you
were the first (and only) person to jump in and actually try to get this resolved.
