ok people, if this has been discussed before then I apologise.

I`m looking for a direct plug in module for my PC and I am coming to the conclusion that the Line 6 Guitar Port is probably what I`m looking for, its not something that I want to spend thousands of pounds on so again it seemed to fit the bill.

does anyone have any good/bad opinions on these? or can anybody suggest something else maybe I could look at.

thanks in advance

Hi Smells,

I bought a Line 6 Toneport UX1 a few months ago and I am really happy with it. I don't have an amplifier so this is what I use to play. It has a cool software I don't know if is the same as the Pod but it has a real cool procesor , I have found awesome tones in there. It is totally worth for the price.

Bye.

Hi Jean-mi

I just want to use it to plug directly into my PC, I either get all my gear out (that I use for rehearsal etc) or I plug directly into my 8 track and use the presets etc that are in that, this is all fine and the sounds are good, but I want to make things a bit simpler, just a USB conection to my PC and plug my guitar in the other end and away I go, I`m pretty sure that the Guitar port is capable of doing this, just wanted to know if the sounds etc that the software will give me are worth me giving it a go smile.gif

Ohhhwww, I wil try to answer...

When it works, The PC speak to the podXt in order to drive the sound settings via USB port, but it seems that the pod doesn't send the guitar signal toward the PC.
So it seems to me that the line 6's soft doesn't put the guitar signal toward the PC in order to get it in the output line of the PC, but only drive the hardware of the pod.

sorry, perheaps i didn't understand very well your problem....huh.gif

I choose it because with its low price (i got all for only 250 euros) the package "pod+pedalboard+soft+pc" is very complete and relatively easy to carry (pod and pedalboard have their own bag - all in one bag). the good thing is that you have all buttons at your hand (in comparaison with bossgt8 and others).... rolleyes.gif


To see if I understand your question, in my case of course I can travel with only guitar+pc+pod and plug everywhere toward any amp or studio... for rehearsal or other experiences.... biggrin.gif

Thanks Jean-Mi smile.gif

I`m quite happy with my live/rehearsal set up, it was just home use/recording I was looking to change smile.gif

I`ve looked at too many now blink.gif laugh.gif

I think I`ll probably go for the Toneport UX2, it allows for direct recording to your PC with punch in/out etc.

thanks for your help tho smile.gif
