do you continue  upgrading pod 1.0 to 2.0?

It depends. Pod 2.0 offers additional FX models and new routing options. The good side of that is more options at your disposal.

The potential downside is that the PF2 file types are not backwards compatible.  That means that a PF2 tone file (still named *.l6t) won't load into POD hardware devices the way PF1 tone files will. So if it's important to you htat the tone files continue to be transferrable to your POD Farm authorizing hardware device that you may not want to upgrade.

On the good side again, you can run both PF1 and PF2 simultaneously in your DAW; the upgrade to PF2 does not replace or overwrite the PF1 installation. So even if you upgrade to PF2 you can still use PF1 in situations where file transfer is required.

Hope this helps.

Pod or Pod Farm? Two different things.

You're right - I completely misread the original post. Thanks for the correction, Mr Arkadin.

To jouryska - Never mind!

Line 6  never discuss product development plans until the product is released, so you won't know for sure. In my opinion there will be no further upgrades or enhancements to the Pod 1.0 product. It will likely continue to be supported for some time but no telling how long.
