So, I got my Line6 POD X3 yesterday and have been playing with it non-stop since Already getting some killer sounds out of things thing. It's going to make demoing with my band much easier.
At any rate, here's my first mix test with it. I picked this song because I had the drum track laying around from a backing track website and I've recorded it before with my Schecter and Flextone (both of which I no longer have) and it's fun as hell to play, and gives me a chance to dial in a big meaty tone. People paying close attention will notice it's in drop-B instead of drop-C, because I hate tuning my 5-string bass to C
I used my Ibanez AX110XL w/ Duncan JB for all the guitars. Rhythm tones were 2 tracks (L/R) of 5150II (boosted with the Tubescreamer) and 2 tracks (L/R) Triple Rect (boosted with the "Boost + EQ"). Both patches are split between the 4x12 w/ V30s and the 4x12 Treadplate, making 8 tracks of rhythm guitars Lead was the 5150II through the 1x6 cab model further filtered in mix, delay added in the mix too. Cleans were 2 tracks (L/R) of the Bassman model through a 4x12 of some kind I think with I think the Sine Chorus, and one track of the Jazz Chorus through the 1x6 dry down the center.
Bass was my Fender Jazz Bass V through the Ampeg SVT model and 8x10 cab model, split between a clean signal and one distorted with the "Classic Distortion" RAT model.
Lots of compression and EQ in the mix.

First words that come to mind :
Sucks to the max
Can I get a little more suck?
We're gonna need a bigger suck!
In reality, sounds pretty good. The "lead" I guess you'd call it was a bit scooped and compressed for my tastes but with the 5150 series I'm really picky about them so don't be upset - even though you probably weren't to begin with.
Cut a little bit of bass from the Triple Rec (seemed a smidgen too "saggy") and I'd say your
