    I am sure there are alot of people that have POD's or similar out there. Myself, I have a J Station, much better than the POD but I digress...

    I was pretty impressed with the J stations sounds, quite good for what it does, but for serious recording I still used amps.

    I ran it through the VMP and WOW! Man, alot better, I mean alot. Then I ran it through two channels of the VMP, holy $*^t!!! I dont use my amp anymore. It is difficult to crank it in my enviroment anyway, but the J sounds that good!

    Most of you im sure will diss these amp sim things, but I am telling you the J, tweaked properly and with some very specifc EQ through 2 channels of VMP is as good as any amp I have heard.

    SO, if you have a J station, POD or whatever that you havent really been that happy with, stick it through your VMP. You will not be sorry. :0)

    Pretty much anything you throw at the VMP comes out as sweet as a slice of NY Cheesecake from Junior's.

    For some tracks, I'll go SPDIF out of the J-Station into a D/A converter, then into the Sebatron. You'll get more resolution and a cleaner signal. The VMP gives it some life. It's there alright. It's there alright (did I say that twice?).

    You can also put a mic up in your control room and record the J-Station through your monitors (turn off the "amp" sims on the J). Blend it back in to taste. This will give you a more realistic signature.

    OK, thats interestinG. I run from the analog out into the VMP. I was thinking my Lynx2 :c: A/D would be a league above the J station converters.

    But Im going to give it a go that way anyway just to see how it goes :0)
