Is a Pod Farm 2.5 a good investment?

    My band has recently started recording some material, but we have shitty equipment for everything but the drums.

    We have thought that the Pod Farm (Platinum specifically) would be a very good investment and drastically improve our sound, however none of us know much about it, and there isn't a post like this on SS.org (at least i couldnt find one)

    So I was wondering is it a good idea?
    (We play Tech Deathcore and some Djenty-er stuff on 8 string guitars, and a six string bass if it makes a difference)

    Also are they usually available locally in music stores, or would it have to be ordered?

    Thanks

    I assume you have a POD, correct? If so, I'd say it's worth it. A lot of professional studio engineers use it still (even though the Axe-FX is taking over), and it works quite well. I use it whenever my X3 wants to work with me and I can get some decent tones from it. I say go for it.

    Yes. People get really good tones out of it. Not to mention it's really useful for bass and vocals...

    I'd assume it'd be nice to have, whether it's your go-to thing or not
