I'm going in to Guitar Center tommorow probably to play both, but which modeler has the more convincing models?
This has been debated on several forums by guys who are sound engineers. Both are great at what they are built to do. Yes, the Vox has a tube pre. The price is more expensive and the upgrade path falls far short of what Line 6 offers. The vox wins on some cleaner amp models, the xt, with packs and version 2.01, wins on the high gain modellers. The choice should be made by what sounds best to the person who intendeds to buy either. I would personally go for the XT Live because it sounds great, is much cheaper than the vox and is less expensive than buying a pod xt then getting a shortboard for live playing. I don't think you'll be disappointed with either. They are all good. I just have to give Line 6 kudos for the constant upgrades and support for the XT line...Lydian said:Unlike the masses i'm going to tell you something: The Tonelab has tubes in it. The pod xt doesnt. That's enough for me to choose the lab. But make up your own mind. You really shouldn't rely on what any of us tell you. Try them both out.

Which really confuses me as to why the whole debate of real amps was started by you. An Amp modelling question in an Amp Modelling forum. Am I making my point clear now ?I'm going in to Guitar Center tommorow probably to play both, but which modeler has the more convincing models?
