Ok so i reformat windows,
reinstalled all of my drivers,
and now the sound out of my pod XT comes out like this (via usb)it sounds digitized or pitch shifted, hard to describe, check out the mp3 above for an example
Here are some pics of my config, let me know what you guys think
I have tried it with three different recording programs and tested it direct out through windows mic test option, its the same thing, so i don't think its the software.
Whatever it is, it sounds awesome Seriously, if you figure out a safe way to switch that sound on and off, I may have a use for it
On a more serious note, it might be a sample rate conflict? Like, if your recording program is set to 44.1 and the POD is set to 48 (I run into this all the time with my POD X3, because I'm not paying attention half the time ).
