As I set-up my new recording rig, I need to replace my large Line 6 Flextone III XL amplifier with something that’s smaller, fits into my work-flow and can be tweaked on screen. I really liked the Flextone amp but the editing software isn’t supported on my Mac and as my live playing days aren’t as plentiful, I figure it’s time to look into new guitar effect options.
I’ve used other Line 6 products in the past including the POD XT Pro. I was happy with the tones and sounds that I got from it plus it worked nicely with the FBV Longboard that I used with my amp. I sold the POD a few years back and considered the new Line 6 Pod HD 500 however I think I prefer the Eleven Rack’s integration with Pro Tools. I’ll post more once I’ve worked with it.
From Avid’s website: Eleven Rack is a revolutionary new guitar recording and effects processing system designed to eliminate the challenges guitarists have faced in the studio and on stage.
