Ok I'm fairly adept at guitar, but I know next to nothing about gear and recording. I have an old GNX3000 which I use with my macbook to record and write songs but I really have no idea what I'm doing. And my tone is awful. So please answer some basic questions I have. Firstly, what the fuck is a GNX3000 anyway? It's a multi-effects pedal with line and xlr outs and stuff. Is that similar to a line 6 pod? What are these contraptions actually called, they must have a collective name or something. Secondly, I've noticed theres amp modelling software out there such as POD farm. How does this shit work? I mean can I just record a dry guitar signal using my GNX and then put it through POD farm and get a beast djent tone or something? Thirdly, I want a nice djent tone, not necessarily for playin djent, I just want a nice refined tone thats sounds great and doesn't require me to add stupid amounts of distortion in order to make up for having a sub-par guitar tone. What hardware out there can provide me with this? For up to $650 or so. And can anyone give me any examples of this gear sounding good? Apologies for this erratic and rambling post.
