I usually don't use an 'lectric geetar on my songs, but I'm using one on the new song I'm working on. I recently bought a Line 6 Pocket POD for effects and amp modeling. To keep from finding the best setting first then recording, I decided to record "dry" directly from the guitar into the HiZ #8 input. Then after (finally) getting a good take, I'm going to use the AUX out to send the recorded dry signal to the POD and record the POD output into another track. That way I can make multiple recordings (on different virtual tracks) at different POD settings and then decide which I like best. I think this will work well, considering I'm not good enough to record live at several different POD settings. :)

I realize I'm not inventing something new here. However, I'm glad I remembered reading about "reamping" a while back to simplify things for me.

The reamped POD quality seems to be OK, even though the POD input is for a Hi-Z device, which the G output is not. Maybe a slight bit of difference in sound.

It's a technique I used to use via my BassPod XT pro, but now find it even easier via Guitar Rig in the Native Instruments Komplete suite. There's no loss of audio quality as all the workings are obviously internal. A wonderfully useful recording method - not least because I can marry up a variety bass sounds with different effects and eq all from an identical performance source.

Current fave = a fat, sub-dub eq'd track married with a trebly, stereo wah. Nice 8)

Two things I've noted - the BassPod delivers superior tones to the Guitar Rig bass patches to my ears and also I don't recall even noticing any degradation in audio quality when i used to reamplify via the BassPod. But, then, my ears are fcut
