Hello fom Italy: Visit My You Tube Channel .
I have this equipment:
Line 6 Variax 700 guitar;4 kinds of effects:
Roland VGA-5 Guitar Amplifier (11 COSM ampliefier type and 10 COSM speaker types that one can freely combine to create sounds; 4 types of effect that can be used simultaneousely: EFX (Wah, Tremolo, Compressor, Slow Gear, Phaser and Flanger that any of them can be selected at one time), delay, chorus and reverb;
a pc equipped with e-mu tracker pre audio interface/mobile preamp (software: Cakewalk SONAR LE 6.2, Steinberg Cubase LE 4, Celemony essential, IK Multimedia Amplitube LE, SFX Machine LT, E-MU Proteus VX) and an Empire PS-2120D speaker system;
another pc equipped with e-mu 0404 audio/midi interface (software: Cakewalk SONAR LE, Steinberg Cubase LE, Ableton Live Lite 4 for e-mu, Steiberg Wavelab Lite, IK Multimedia AmpliTube LE, SFX Machine LT, Minnetonka diskWelder Bronze (text version) and e-mu proteus Vx) and an IK Multimedia stealth plug guitar/bass usb cable audio card+amp & fx Modeling software (software: tracktion 2.1, t-racks eq, sampltank 2, amplitude 2 live);
I have also a discret electric and a good acoustic guitar.
I usually use the most recent Band in a Box last version to create accompaniment tracks when I play piano or guitar.
Until now I've rarely used Variax 700 guitar, Roland amplifier and all the software included with the 2 e-mu sound cards.
My questions are:
1) I would like to buy Line 6 pod x 3, also because i've the variax 700 guitar, to start recording with my pc and use it as a multieffects but i think that I've 2 good e-mu sound cards and isn't better to buy a daw software or upgrade one of the software that i have in light edition?
I would like to register on my pc, using the accompaniment created with band in a box, my parts of piano, guitar and voice (i've also a shure sm58 microphone and a virtualizer pro dsp2024p).
2) Which is a good acoustic multieffect to use with my roland amplifier and eko acoustic guitar corral model (I use a pickup to connect it to the amplifier) and a cheap Ibanez classic guitar equipped with a tuner, volume, bass and treble control?
3) Does my Roland cosm amplifier keep the original sound of my variax 700 guitar or how must I use the roland amplifier to render the original sound of my variax 700 guitar? My 65 watt amplifier can also be used in manual control to use it as a regular analog ampliefer (it has other than the knobs to control amp and speaker cosm also 2 input - high and low -, a gain, a volume, an equilizer, a presence, the 4 types effects and a master knobs.
Thanks to all of this great guitar player community that will help me to clarify my doubts. Francesco.

Hello from Italy. I'm Francesco and you can see me playing piano and guitar on you tube Visit My Youtube page .
I think you are one the best teachers on this fantastic site plenty of young people with music energy and you have the talent to recreate the feeling of Elton John big songs because you play the Beatles that for me are like the father of Elton John, and to start I ask to you to arrange one that for me has a fantastic intro: "My Father's Gun".
