I assume yoou are talking about POD Farm 2.0, and not POD 2.0 (two VERY different products.)
You can use POD Farm to adjust the volume without coloring the tone simply by creating an empty (no amps or effects) tone and using the mixer panel to adjust the volume.
If you use the ASIO drivers in your recording program and do not run POD Farm, you will get only the raw signal from your guitars, but you will not be able to monitor via ToneDirect.

Much appreciated! I will try both approaches and see if I can get a true replication of the tone/sound to come out.
And for the record, yes I meant POD Farm 2.0. Newbies can be such a pain eh?

It's been a while since I raised this question, but thought I'd circle back with additional input on getting a "true" tone from the guitar with Line 6 GX.
I did try creating a new tone with no amps or effects but I still found it was somewhat very electric sounding and both my acoustic and classical guitars still sounded very much alike...
What seems to work best is creating a new tone and adding in the "Power Amp" (the rectangle amp with silver plated front). That seems to do the trick, now the sound seems very realistic and true to the guitar and seems to be as straight through as I found it to be (so far).

thank you! been scratching my head on this one. thanks for the follow up sville, the power amp does the jib perfectly.
