    I have a POD XT Live and a DigiTech RP1000. The POD sounds better when recording. Live, the RP1000 blows it out of the water.

    I usually run the RP1000 in front of the amp, with the cabinet models off, and use it as a multi-effects pedal. The amp and dirt/distortion models are very, very good. I have run it using the four cable method and was blown away at how many different amp models sounded great.

        Big +1 on the Digitech RP or GSP series. I've been using the RP500 for a couple of years now and I still love it. There's no tone that I can't get out of it, granted I know this thing inside out by now.

        I bought it mainly to mess around at home and do some light recording. Everything on my Soundclick page (under hc jams in my sig) was done with the RP500.

        Can't comment on how it sounds thru a KB amp but I'm sure it will still kick ass. I really wanted to hear it thru a tube amp so I got me Mesa 50/50 and scored these awesome thiele cabs with EVM12L's. Man, this rig sounds so good you'd never guess the tones were coming from a multi fx floor processer.

        Anyway just my .02 cents. Good luck on the quest.

          I'd have to vote for the Tonelab. I still have an original table top model. I've always been able to get good tones out of it, but the best I could do was to run it in to the FX return on a decent tube amp. It just has a more connected, full feeling and an immediacy to it that was lacking running it into the front of the amp.

          I've always said where the Tonelab excels is on the slightly dirty to medium gain range of things. Quite a few modelers can put out usable cleans and a variety of high gain tones, but the Tonelab seems to be a notch ahead of everyone else when it comes to those edge of breakup type tones. It also is very responsive to the guitar volume knob.

          I've never used an AxeFX which I would assume is the best nor have I spent much time with the GT10 or any of the character series Tech 21 pedals though some of the online vids are pretty impressive. Esp the Vox and the Mesa pedals.

            Line 6 POD XT Live.
            Run this device into the returns of your amp.
            I run it into the returns of my JC-120.

              If the Roland does not give up good dirt, maybe you should consider looking into a Vox Valvetronix amp, such as the VT30, or VT50 as an alternative to just using pedals through the Roland. Maybe even a small Egnater amp.

                      I love my GT-10, but part of the good sound I can get is that I use it with a TECH 21 Power Engine 60 that provides no "coloration" to the emulated sounds of the gt10.... when I have run my gt 10 through a regular tube or ss amp, the sound is not that good, even with the four cable method....

                      In short, get whichever effect or modeler you want or that have the best effects that will suit your needs, BUT, how you amplify it will have a radical effect in your results!

                      imho...

                      Good luck!

                        ^^ true. I use a powerengine 60 with my X3 Live.

                          Have you considered replacing the speaker? If you're not actually using it as a keyboard amp it seems like that would give you a lot more options, including stuff you might already have.

                              Yeah, I have no idea if it's feasible but it does seem like it's the root of the problem.

                                If it's just as simple as that, you might have saved my Cube. I'm using the poweramp and speaker only, so I could try a swap.
