I've recorded in the past with Line6 PodXT Live, using the analog
stereo 1/4" outputs into my audio interface. I *do* recommend getting
a better audio card, even one of the external USB interfaces will be
better (especially since they have the 1/4" inputs). I used a M-Audio
1010 for recording back then. I do a similar thing with the Amplitube
StompIO board, using the analog outputs to the analog inputs on my
HDSP interface and into Ardour. I think it sounds fine, don't hear
much difference between using analog or digital output (to be honest,
I think the digital recording is a little too pristine sounding, the
analog sounds a little warmer to my ears).
