Yes these are the options that you'll need to use to set up the POD as
audio device.  Are you sure that ALSA supports the POD device? It seems
like there might be a driver issue, as some other Line6 devices require a
custom driver to work with Linux: http://sourceforge.net/p/line6linux  I
hope I'm wrong!

The ALSA tab in QJackCtl shows MIDI devices: the MIDI component of the POD
300 is probably class-compliant (meaning, no special driver required for
that part)..
