I was thinking of the POD HD Pro, I know it doesn't match up to the godly Axe-Fx II but it's really affordable. I'm looking for a rack setup, priority would be my studio work before shows but it works both ways I feel. I've got a couple of questions though. Would it work good for recording bass? I know it's perfect for guitar. I'm also thinking of using impulses with their amp sims, can I do that? Lastly, do you think it's a good upgrade? Would love to hear your thoughts on it! Thanks for reading.
