OVERVIEW

Recording your ideas has never been easier.

The Line 6 GuitarPort RiffTracker makes it easy to record your killer riffs before they're gone forever. Combining award-winning GuitarPort hardware/software, RiffWorks recording software, the unique InstantDrummer, and super-simple automatic setup, it's the easiest guitar recording rig ever. If you want to play guitar instead of playing engineer, GuitarPort RiffTracker, with its included RiffWorks recording software, is the answer.

With sounds taken directly from the world-standard PODxt, you get 16 amp models and more than 20 quality effects. And you'll have access to an online library of thousands of tones matched to the greatest guitarists, songs, bands, and gear of all time.

The Guitarist-Friendly Drummer

InstantDrummer gives you fresh and creatively varied drum tracks with fills using perfectly matched, full-kit studio drum recordings. Intensity, Variation, Ambience, and Gain knobs let you dial in your personal drummer.

Guitar-Optimized Recording

The unique Riff Recorder lets you set the tempo and even start recording from your guitar so you never have to put it down. It will even automatically create tracks as you play so you can record multiple takes or layer parts without a pause.

Mix Effects

The 7 mix effects per track are great for sweetening up the sound of most anything you might record with the GuitarPort hardware, even bass or a keyboard. And just like the virtual guitar rig, the included mixing effects are easy to operate. So you get great studio-quality sounds without the typical computer studio complication.

Collect and Combine Your Ideas

The Riff List holds the ideas you've recorded. Double-click a Riff in the list to open it for more recording, or to fine-tune your mix. Drag Riffs to the Song Bar to string them together. Then MIX a file to disk, and burn it with your CD software!

GuitarPort RiffTracker includes the award-winning GuitarPort hardware. This guitar-focused USB recording interface is powered by your laptop or desktop computer and has all the connections needed to track guitar and enjoy the results with your speakers or headphones.

GuitarPort RiffTracker & How to Record Vocals

I?ve been playing guitar, singing, and songwriting for over 20 years now (oh my, I?m getting old) and this GuitarPort RiffTracker is one of the coolest things to come down the road in a long time. I work as a computer network engineer for a day job so I feel right at home sitting in front of a computer, mix that with a guitar and all these effects, I?ve been doing computer-based recording since 1996 and have used just about every computer-based recording software on the market. I must say Sonoma Wire Works RiffWorks software is awe-inspiring. Keep It Simple is the design of RiffWorks. Their focus is to make a product that allows you to make music without being a recording engineer. The drummer feature is better than any drum machine or software I have ever used. They don?t skimp on the drummers they give you either. There are more you can buy, but you can do plenty with the 8 that come with it. Just find a guitar tone/effect you like, get a beat going, click record, and start jamming. If you get something that you like, you can keep the recording as a loop and even change up the drums after you?ve recorded it. (I do a lot of acoustic work and use the drums as a time keeper when I?m recording my riffs and then remove them afterwards.) Then you can string your loops together to make songs by dragging them into the song timeline window at the top of the screen. It?s really cool because it?s so easy to try different arrangements. You just drag the riffs in the order you want them in the song and then click play. If you want to try a different arrangement, just move the riff to a different spot in the song. It couldn?t be much easier. Customer ServiceThe Forums and people at Sonoma Wire Works are great. They are an extremely positive group of people dedicated to their product and are helpful in pretty much every aspect of music production. There are no dumb questions and you will get real answers to your question or comment, instead of flames. I haven't dealt with Line 6 Customer Service, so I can't comment on that.

I must say that I agree with the gentleman above who said that getting this stuff registered and getting the licenses straightened out was a pain. I'm still not sure how I did it. But somehow I got the Line 6 monkey to work.That being said, I was immediately impressed with the preset tones that come with Toneworks, all of which are completely tweakable, with plently of amp models, cab models, and effects to choose from. And you can purchase more models, effects, etc.. online. The thing that impressed me the most was the Tonelocker. Now that thing is BAD!! You can type in any band or any guitarist and get a list of some of their most famous songs broken down into separate parts such as "solo", "bridge", "acoustic chorus", etc... and just click on whichever tone you want.... so if you want Angus Young's rhythm tone, click on it, and it's yours. Yuu want some Satch or some David Gilmour sounds for your leads? Just type in the name and click on which one of their tones you want. I have never been able to nail Slash's tone until I got this program. I can make my Seymour Duncans moan and sing just like Slash now, and the tones don't sound digitized or cold. Line 6 did a great job with these preset tones. I can't wait to see how they sound through some decent speakers and not just through headphones. The recorder is easy to use, didn't take me long to figure it out. Good for just looping a rhythm track and soloing away for hours. The help file for it is short and to the point.Overall, these programs are exactly what I was looking for.Excellent job Line 6. YOu guys are straight-up tone magicians.

Great product...but, WOW, what a license nightmare

By MiddleAgedRocker

from Pennsylvania, USA

I recently purchased Line6 GuitarPort RiffTracker. Included in the box were the Guitarport and two software CDs. Everything installed on my computer okay and after a few minor adjustments I was off and playing (the built-in presets in GearBox are great!). Then I found that I could not save riffs in RiffTracker that I had created until the software was activated - that's when the confusion started. Included in the software is a product called the Line 6 Monkey that has to be used to update and register the software. Well, to make a long story shorter: after several hours of searching through (not-so-helpful) Help files I somehow managed to get the product registered - actually, I believe it was a pure accident. But I'm happy now. I really like the quality of the product and its capabilities, but the technical side of the software licenses seems to be overly complicated. Lastly, I'm not a computer novelist - I am an IT professional manager working in the world's 7th largest corporation - responsible for 15,000 PCs and 3,500 server systems. Recommendation to Line6: hire a good software specialist to clean up your license security process.

I usually dont give 10's

By Ibanezman-asM_S

See all my reviews

i am amazed. The sounds u can get will really help with using a sound of your own, on the other hand it has alot of artist based presets. i did not use mine online and it is compatible with XP OFFLINE!!! my only problem is that it is very hard to make each part of your song fit excactly into where its is supposed to be without a little empty transition. Right now i use it to record my entire band rehersals, using a micIt is very easy to convert your recordings into a .wav file for CD burning!!!!

Wow thanks

By 73usmc

from Yuma Az

I have had this product for almost 2 years now the first year was a battle with the line 6 company just trying to get it to activate. Its been frustration and anger trying to make this work. I keep telling myself try again but it never seems to work correctly . Just tonite I tryed to record a friend and I(someone I havent played with in over a year) And guess what it diddnt work so 3 Hours of playing was lost in the typical line 6n way. Thank You line 6 If you want to record guitar and vocals buy a tape recorder before this product.

Line 6 baby!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

My friend who plays guitar(I play bass) decided to look into some relatively cheap but quality recording equipment to record our ideas. I'm telling you: this thing should cost twice as much. Pro-quality sound, easy to use tools and everything is right on the main menu. A little trouble starting it up, but the Riff Tracker is definitely worth it. I can't believe the amount of effects and things are loaded onto this puppy. Plus, anything that can be plugged into it can be recorded,and the built in drum-machine is pretty darn good. Great product.

It's worth it, I guess

By jtlvn

from Shoreview, MN

This is a great product for recording ideas for songs and looping chords to solo over for practice. I have been using it for about a year and am getting much better thanks to its power to loop measures and phrases effortlessly. However the drum machine is crap. I write a lot of stuff in odd time signatures or in 4/4(with that triplet 8th notes). No matter what the time sig. is the drums just play 4/4 beats. It sucks, really sucks. The guitar modeling and presets are above and beyond though. I've made countless setting using a suprisingly large amount of effects and different amps. This product is worth buying if you don't have a band to play with. But if you just need to record ideas just use a tape recorder or write them down like a true musician.

Cool little device

By Dr. Hacksaw

from Philly, PA

See all my reviews

I don't currently have a band, but I do have a stockpile of riffs, full songs, lyrics, and little bits and pieces of songs just begging for a real song to call "home." The RiffTracker is beyond perfect for this. I can lay down the guitar, bass, and vocal tracks, and the "instant drummer" will give me some beats to keep time. The beats are rather generic, but they get the job done if you don't have an actual drummer.(You can also download more from Line 6's website.) You can also burn a CD to save your work, or, like I do, to hand out to people interested in joining your band. I also like that I don't have to drag my whole pedal setup around to record something, as it gives you amp/cab modeling and simulated stompboxes, which are just as good as the Digitech RP200 that I often use during practices and when I jam with friends. Bottom line, it's well worth the money spent.

Songwriter's best friend

By haydenb

from Portland, OR

This is a great tool for songwriting. Being able to loop one idea while trying out another is invaluable. I'm more productive using this software than I have been with anything else I've ever used.

A great product!

By GtrGuy286

I ordered the Guitar Port Riff Tracker several months ago, and quite frankly, I couldn't be more pleased. For the price, the Riff Tracker offers a wide selection of various tones and effects, that can be easily tweaked and mixed to the musician's preferences. An easy-to-follow tutorial instructs the musician on how to set the tempo and time signature, lay down a riff, adjust the tone and amp models and piece together a complete song that can be transferred to CD. The makers of Riff Tracker did a pretty good job of re-creating some signature tones from some of the greatest guitarists (Van Halen, Hendrix, Page, S.R.V., Hammett). It definitely takes some practice, but if you're new to recording and looking for a good way to transfer all those creative ideas to CD format, look no further than the Guitar Port Riff Tracker. (It can also be great fun to just plug in and fool around with the various tones and amp models, especially the signature tones, without actually recording! You never know what'll come out when you sit down and putter with Riff Tracker!)
