Default how good are dem guitar pod thingies?

I'm all about minimising my setup into one bag so I can go anywhere and play without too many problems... because I play live guitar in my set, I've been using an amp and micing it up into my computer, applying real time FX etc., because plugging a guitar directly into an audio interface sounds like complete and utter cack...

what i'm wondering is, for live stuff, not recorded stuff, are those guitar pods a decent replacement for an amp acting as a kind of preamp before going into my audio interface?... obviously the quality won't be quite as good, but for live stuff it might be acceptable?... because if it is, i think i'll be buying one...

madtheory, i'm looking in your direction in particular...

well i'd have a gander at Guitar Rig (VST)




it also includes a "Cabinets and Mics" module to take care of the aspect of speaker and microphone choice and placement.
i use it quite a bit and the sounds that it produces are very realistic, be a good choice for live work.

Out of interest would a DI box work with that guitar rig software? Anyone tried it?

Thanks

Thanks paddypaws. This is where I'm at now! I'm going cheap and cheerful at the moment. Time to re-assess!
