I've only used one signal path on my X3 Pro and I've been fairly satisfied. I'm just wondering what playing through two signal paths is like? Could I get a thicker sound that way? Like play through a JCM 800 on one path and a JCM 2000 on the other?

yeah, you can do that... you can also do vocals or bass through the other path or whatever you want... its a nice option.

There are a couple of ways that dual tones have worked well for me. One is to have a gainy amp on one of the tones and a clean on the other. A Marshall Plexi with an AC30 is a pretty sweet combo. Ben from Skillet used to use a Fender Twin with a Dual Rectifier, same idea. The other is to use two gainy amps side by side. Seth Morrison, Skillet's new guitar player uses a Peavey and a Dual Rectifier. It's a nice combo on the POD. If you're looking for more low end, try mixing the JCM800 with the "big bottom" amp model. It takes a little time to get something that sounds good, but it's worth it. I've uploaded a bunch of dual tones to customtone, search on my username.

Lemme start off by saying I play mostly metal. (and most of its subgenres) For me, 1 signal chain always sounded a bit weak. But using 2 tones, panning one to the left and one to the right.... That can produce wanders. Try it for yourself and you will see. Experiment. Using 2 tones always sounds sweeter than using 1, especially if you pan them properly.

My band recently released our demo album, which was recorded entirely through a POD x3. Guitars, bass and vocals. Check it out and tell us what you think. :)
