its nice for recording to have the software/hardware version that matches... but yeah i'd go 500 as well (you could also go pro...)

 

I honestly haven't touched POD Farm though since I've gotten it. It has some nice features, but I don't really like the amp modeling. It's nice for it's time, but obviously amp modeling has improved drastically since then, and I'm glad Line 6 realized that and updated their modeling as well. I'd rather not pay for something that I'm not going to use besides the Variax features.

 

By the way, can the 500 be used as a midi controller to control VSTs? I REALLY need a MIDI expression pedal. I was going to get a FBV but I think a 500 will be more worth it.

I don't really use it like that, so i can't say. I pretty much do all my DAW/Midi stuff on an M-Audio Axiom 25 I tend to be pretty straight forward when recording the live tracks.

besides i actually have the FBV MKII and the pro, so i could use the FBV post recording like you want. I'm trending towards doing all the plugin stuff towards the end so i don't get distracted by all the shiny toys when trying to get an idea down.

I use my DAW for live application as well though. It would be nice to assign the expression pedal to something like a wah in Amplitube or something. I haven't been really able to do that stuff.

 

I know the POD HD has it's own wahs and stuff, but I'd like to be able to use that for plugins as well.
