I've been trying for 2 weeks now, since I bought my Pod Studio UX1, and I didn't manage to get any good metal sounds. I tried with reaper, cubase, but still my recordings are just worthless. Compared to others, like this guy (), their recordings are awsome.. Even trying other's presets didn't work for me!
(I have an LTD H-1001 with active EMG's if that helps)
