I bought the POD UX1 about a month ago and ever since I can't get a decent audio quality.
Based on youtube reviews, other user sounds and comparing the sound I get from the UX1 from the sound when I select the "normal" soundcard the quality is horrible. Plus, when I playing the guitar, for most amps and setups, the sound quality is also very poor and in some cases it seems like it's bouncing from max volume to min volume.
I can record a few samples if you want to.
My question is: is the product defective? I'm running on Windows 8, all drivers and POD are updated (2.55).
