also, if you somehow get or own an audio interface, you can actually use Amplitude or Guitar Rig software applications. Most instructors here seems to use those.. easy

You just won't be able to record. Yep, drop those not having USB.. its seriously needed to improve faster.

This one (audio interface) seems to be cheaper and comes with Guitar Rig as well.. Cons of this is you will always have to connect it to the computer even while practicing.

PX4D would be a good choice but that is like 150$ (not sure how much euro it would be there)

Well the Korg Pandora PX5D (ex) on the site you mentioned costs 184 $ that means 124 Euro.But looking on the net

in my country that thing does 280 Euro.

I mean look at the difference.Twice as much and more

Is there any way the product on the site you mentioned can be shipped in Greece?

Yes, you will have to do a lot of research before buying. If you are looking forward to learning lessons from GMC, its really recommended that you can record your playing. If I were you, I would definitely start with cheaper machines because, its not about sound at this point. You need to learn to play first. Once you are comfortable playing beginner level licks and rhythms then you can consider getting a better interface with foot pedals and what not like the POD XT. But these little machines will be your assets because whenever you want to record, these will always come in handy. smile.gif Ask the instructors. smile.gif

not sure if they ship to Greece. Have you tried searching over ebay within Europe? They should have almost half the price.

From your earlier reply, don't worry about not knowing how to use. Its not so difficult and I am recommending this small units because it will be very easy to play around. Getting larger units is more complex and instead of learning playing, you will be lost in finding the sound you like. smile.gif

Let others chime in with other recommendations and you can narrow down the selection. smile.gif

Well you are not sure???

I cant take from Ebay.I have got my reasons.So the only way is shipment.

And the good part is that in Greek site they cut the price from 297 to 277 biggrin.gif

Not having USB means you will have to use it manually and you won't be able to pilot it through your computer. Even though it has a midi interface for that, it's not really comfortable.

It's OK but it's not really 2009 fashioned... wink.gif

More than that, the sounds on the POD XT and X3 seem better than on the POD 2.0. But still, on ebay.com, you can find some POD 2.0 for like 50$ or 100$. It's really worth the price you pay for it.

So if you have 300$, you will still have 200$ left to buy something else, for example a good recording sound card or a webcam to do some REC.

It's up to you then. You can do a lot of things with 300$. smile.gif

True, i personally prefer software based modeling, specially guitar rig, over pods or rack modeling.
It's more versatile, and in my opinion it sounds much better wink.gif

My recommendation would be to go for a Toneport UX1. It does not cost much and comes with gearbox software for modelling (loads of different tones) and also ableton lite for recording.

I have the UX2 which is more expensive and gives more inputs but the UX1 is equally good and lots of GMC members use them including Ivan M.

I also suggest POD Studio UX1. It is a sound card/audio interface and it will serve you well for home usage.
