Just curious how the new PODXT compares to the older PODs. I play direct and use in-ear monitors and we always retain the same sound companies which use MacPherson and JBL Pro equipment, so crappy PA's are not an issue. I'm looking to minimize my gear (which is already minimal compared to most). Our guitar player has used his POD for years and swears by it. He shows up for gigs with 2 guitars and his POD w/flrbd. What do y'all think?
