I just got a pod xt, everything works , I use cubase sx 3, my pc's sound card is a standard soundblaster xfi and I use the creative asio driver. I also use ez drummer and superior 2 and other vsts while I record. I did switch it to the line 6 asio and hooked up my speakers to the headphone out on the pod xt, and loaded up ez drummer and dinked around and it sounded fine, but there is really no way to tell if it can handle the stress of one of my records I love my vsts. I have a few options I do have a mixer as well going into the line in on my xfi so I can output that way and usb. Both 24 bit and I record at 41 khz So my question is what would give me the best performance results and quality? Using my pod xt as a sound card for all my vsts and junk Using the Asio wrapper Aiso4all mixing everything and outputting through my xfi Or hooking up the pod to my mixer via stereo line out and using my xfi for everything.
