A very specific target I'm after but it seems to be one of the most elusive. I've been trying to get a good tone for jazz lead on melody and improv (somewhere between George Benson & Larry Carlton) , I have a pod 2.0 and all the amp simulators in logic Pro X, but they all sound like doodoo to me. I've even tried bare-bones straight from my guitar into the board and tried to doctor it up with EQ and effects with very little success. For rock sounds my Pod does pretty fine with a Mesa, Marshall, Fender, and hot Rod amp tones, but to do jazz it's a little more subtle (the tone considerations) and so far I haven't come close to the sound of a real amp. I'm starting to think that no form of direct input into recording is going to come close to an SM57 in front of a good amp. Am I wrong? I'm sure Les, our studio wizard, must have some sage advice on this subject but if anyone else has suggestions I'd like to hear about it too.
