You can't get wrong with Pod Studio UX1

What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
You don't have to invest in software, it came with very useful software to play, practice, learn, record. I would like to have metronome, player with speed down tool in pod studio, but you can use gearbox from line 6 until now available. They have many in/out ports so can be used to various purpose.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Just connect your guitar, open pod studio and start to play. To record, if you don't have previous experience with ableton live, you need to read for a few minutes the manual to start, but it's not complicated, if you want to use another DAW it's very simple too, just setup the UX1 like in/out interface.
Was this item an overall good value?
Yes, for the price you can regret anything. There are many similar products in the market but I think the UX1 is the only one that came hardware, DAW, and Amp emulator software (plugin and standalone) for a very affordable price. The DAW it's a limited version but not demo, to record your ideas or even record an entire song it's enough. I use mainly to play, practice and record guitar, so I don't care about phantom power to mic, maybe for someone this it's no good.
