OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Low noise for clearer recordings. Plenty of effects and modeling options too.

This Line 6 POD Studio UX1 package includes the POD Farm plug-in and Reason Limited recording software, an ideal platform for recording guitarists. This collection of studio-standard hardware and software provides instant pro guitar recording right out of the box.

NOTE: As of April 2010, if you order this product, you'll automatically be upgraded to POD Farm 2.0.

The Line 6 POD Studio UX1 boasts extremely low noise for recording guitar plus 12dB more dynamic range than similar interfaces, for clear and dynamic recordings. The exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect monitoring eliminates latency and allows you to record with amp and effect modeling without sacrificing tone or feel.

Compact and powerful, the Line 6 UX1 recording interface features a 1/4" guitar input, a balanced XLR input with high-quality mic preamp, a pair of 1/4" line inputs, a 1/4" stereo monitor input, and a pair of 1/4" analog outs for a truly professional recording experience.

Public Service Announcement: Latency Kills

Recording with latency is like driving with your eyes closed. Line 6's ToneDirect monitoring allows you to record and monitor a fully processed guitar tone while virtually eliminating latency and taking all the guesswork out of recording great-sounding tracks.

What's latency? Latency is the delay caused by the time it takes your guitar signal to travel all the way through your hardware interface, through your computer's processor, through your plug-in software, back through your hardware interface, and out of your speakers or headphones. This delay is significant in your monitoring signal and makes recording almost impossible. With a Line 6 POD Studio UX1 interface, latency is something you'll never have to deal with.

This Line 6 UX1 is a great value for the money. This is low latency,I subtract one star for the cheap plastic feel of it. I subtracted another star for the lack of instructions. I had to look around on the internet for instructions. You install the Pod Farm CD-ROM first. Then, you plug in the USB interface. Keep the Pod Farm software running in the background. Then you load up your recording software, in my case Acid Music Studio 8.0. Go into the Acid Music Studio menu to choose the UX1 as your audio interface. Voila! you are recording. It took me two hours to install and download necessary drivers and such. But it was worth it.
- works smoothly with my software, Sony Acid Music Studio 8.0
- works with my operating system, Windows 7, 64 bit
- comes included with upgrade to Pod Farm 2.0 which isn't really that different from Pod Farm 1.0, at least I can't really tell the difference in sound quality.
- this USB interface really is low latency. I was previously using an M-Audio interface which had noticeable latency which I didn't like. After the M-Audio interface died, I decided to give Line 6 interface a try.
- KEEP IN MIND: THERE IS NO PHANTOM POWER. I am using a dynamic microphone with this. You need a separate phantom power adapter if you are going to use a condenser mic.
-made of lightweight, somewhat cheap looking plastic.
- I really don't know how long this thing will last, but so far it is working great in my Acid Music Studio 8.0, so I am not complaining about the lightweight plastic.
I got this when there was a sale, so for the price it was well worth the money.

Line 6 has tried to make something very innovative and convienient for the recording guitarist and I believe that this actually acheives that goal. Its a good deal to pick up if you are wanting to start getting into recording but it is extremely difficult to use and I am very dissapointed with Line 6 for not providing any instructions. Check their site for instructions or call their help line.
The Line 6 POD Studio UX1 offers a fantastic premise for the recording guitarist. Pod farm allows you to create your own rig and experiment with your sound and the UX1 also enables you to record using Ableton Lite, a basic but quality recording software. First off, I must say for the price its definitely a must buy, especially if your looking to do some recording but secondly, I have to warn you. The software is confusing and quite difficult, especially to download. I struggled multiple times to download the software correctly in order to use even it. It came with no instructions at all thus making things even more difficult. If you don't install the software correctly then you won't be able to use the software properly and it can even mess up your computer. It actually caused mine to crash but I think that has more to do with my pc than the software. But my point is that if your going to buy this then definitely be prepare for what you are getting into. If your a complete novice like me, then you will more than likely find this very difficult and frustrating at times. I recommend that once you purchase and are ready to install, call Line 6 and have them walk you throuhg the installation process because trust me, it is extremely daunting and quite irratating.
Made out of plastic which was a tad unxpected but it holds up nicely.Keep in mind that if you're planning on recording some vocals with this thing, it isn't phantom powered so I would only recommend it for guitar mainly.
Definitely good value for the price, if you can get past all the headache of learning to install and use it.

    Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

    This seemed like a good purchase but the Reason Limited software associated with it couldn't be installed out of the box. I've had to contact the software company (from what I've read online so have many others)for an id number that didn't come with it. Sadly, this company is in SWEDEN and four days later they've not gotten back to me. Without that software, the interface is useless.

    According to what I've read from other consumers, it should take about a week for the Sweden company to get back to me with the proper info. Needless to say, I can't recommend anyone else buy this interface and would caution them against any of the other Line6 interfaces as it may be a company wide problem.

    Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

    Im not going to tell anyone not to buy this, because im sure someone else has had a great time with this. i bought the ux1 and installed all of the programs on windows 7, because it says it is compatable, but it turns out its not. Im plugged my bass in, and even to be sure i set everything the way it told me to in the manual, but sure enough, no sound whatsoever came through the box. There was no signal. there was nothing. then the programs would just freeze up. i dont understand because there is nothing wrong with any of my basses and i am not challenged in anyway when it comes to equipment and my computer is very fast, without problems or viruses. it was one of the worst experiences as a consumer that i have ever had because i saw it came with 3 different programs and read so many good things about its easy use, quality and capabilities. only to be highly disappointed. Technical support was not much help either.

    Needs hard copy of instructions

    By stephanie Raper

    from Mississippi

    Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

    POD Studio UX1 with POD FARM. The unit itself works fine and included everything promised. However, as a novice with this type of equipment, I had a very hard time figuring out how to install and launch the software. There were no instructions included in the box with the unit - just the unit and three CDs. It took me two days to decipher the online manual and video tutorials to get it running. I still haven't figured out how to get the POD FARM up and running. I cannot get mine to resemble the examples in the video tutorials. Even a card with simple instructions as to which CD needed to be loaded first would have been helpful. I realize that we need to cut down on the amount of paper we use each day, but I think important installation information should be a priority for new equipment. I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my husband. He is not technologically inclined and would never have gotten this up and running by himself with no instructions. He had actually boxed it back up and given up on it.

        After using the Toneport UX1 for 7 years, I found the improvement in amp modelling to be fantastic. Tremendous tones for both guitar and bass (haven't recorded vocals yet). Much easier to move pedals around in your signal chain to get the tone you want.

          By Matthew Travers

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

          This is my first recording/interface equipment, so up to this point I have been experimenting and mostly playing around. I have owned this product for a little over a week now, and without having any long term experience I must say I am very satisfied so far.

          The equipment and software does not come with specific instalation instructions, but the Line 6 website has a video which explains the process. It also has user manuals and guides available for download. The Ableton software takes you through the process of linking it to the UX1 and Pod Farm. As a first-timer, it did not take me long to be up and running.

          The direct monitoring does work very well. There is no audible latency whatsoever. If you compare it to Ableton's built-in monitoring (which you can disable), there is a noticeable improvement with the UX1.

          Overall it is a very simple setup. Just a roughly 8" square box with a USB, one guitar cable, and a pair of headphones. The included tones from famous artists and tones are very entertaining, and of course you can create your own. There are also several expansion packs available. I will be having fun with this for a long time.

          Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

          I switched to this after a HORRIBLE experience with the iKey RM3. This device is incredible. Not only is it cheaper than the other, but it is significantly better, and much less of a hassle. The Pod Farm software, so far, sounds surprisingly good. I'm not a huge fan of Ableton Live, but I was planning on using Adobe Audition anyway. I also love how it allows you to use your studio mic as a microphone in any computer application you want (Recording, skype, movie maker, anywhere your computer normally uses one). I can't speak on the Mac issues, but I can say it works perfectly in Windows 7 x64. The only thing holding back a 5 star review is the lack of phantom power. I don't know why so many devices leave out this essential feature. However, for $50 more, you can go with the UX2 and get extra inputs and phantom power, it just wasn't really in my price range. So, all that being said, if you're looking to begin recording your music, do not hesitate to buy this device! It really is an incredible little device.

          Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

          This little contraption is one of the coolest things I've bought in a long time. I've had it for a couple days now and I can't stop playing with it. If you're a metal guitar player I would reccomend buying the additional "metal shop" model pack for some extra high gain amps. Even with stock amps you can get some amazing tones. I was a little sceptical at first because of the price but I guarantee you its worth it. I run a Mac OSX Lion and you have to do some downloading from Line 6 website but it's no trouble at all. No matter your playing style this will have some tones that are up your alley. Buy it.

          PS: The reason I gave it an 8 is because it's plastic. It would be great if it were a metal body but for the price i'm definitely not complaining. Just be careful and don't drop it and you'll be good to go.

          Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

          This review is strictly for the POD Farm. I use the Line 6 GX with the POD Farm. I happen to like a lot of reverb when I play my Hank Marvin songs, and POD Farm gives me that dreamy reverb that you aren't going to find on an amp even with a pedal. At least I've never found it. Keep in mind that this is playing the guitar with headphones on. The POD Farm allows you to tweak your sound to exactly where you want it. I just wish I could find an amp that would produce that particular sound. POD Farm does it for me.

          Didn't work right out of the box, called customer support at musicians friend and line 6 and neither could offer any help. I spent about an hour on google and trouble shot the problem myself after being told first that the device was broken and second that I needed a new computer. When in reality I only needed to find windows 8 drivers because the product is outdated and doesn't come equipped with up to date software. But I'm happy with it now that it works! I love all the preloaded effects and unlimited combinations of preloaded "gear"

          I got this a few months ago and i have to say that this product turned out to be alot better than i thought it would be. The Zero Latency thing really makes a difference, but my only complaint was the lack of phantom power for my Marshall microphone. It took me a little while to get it installed in my old Mac OS X 10.4 with GarageBand, but it was deffinatley worth it. Also loved all of the effects in pod farm. A little cheap sounding, but if you mess with it for long enough, it sounds good. Overall, good solid product. If you're starting to record and make CD's, I highly reccomend this.

          This is an amazing product! The amp software sounds really nice, and it is a solid and simple little box, with a ton of versatility. Obviously, the Ableton Live software is very limited. You can only use 4 total built in fx at a time and only 2 third party plug-ins. But for beginners, it is DEFINITELY worth the $$. My only complaint is that there's no phantom power. For those who have outboard mixers, this is no problem, but for those who don't, beware.

          Great tool, very easy to use, very reliable, satisfying sound. Got essential amp models and various effects, which you can extend with additional libraries (though I didn't need to). Unfortunately in my country it goes for around 200$ - the price of UX2 (next model in line). That makes it's 'quality/price' ratio worse, but it's still a great purchase.

          Comments about Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 with Pod Farm:

          After last years purchase of the "Stealth plug" I was VERY careful to review, test, & read everything possible about interfaces & what I would need to make my home studio Easy to use. The install was quite quick & easy. The tones are cool! & the overall prodct is nicey nice.No complaints so far However, I think they should toss in a copy of Reaper or something to use with it so I could intergrate the UX1 w/ my new EZDRUMMER program (which also kicks butt.) Just make sure you get yourself a SURE SM 57 microphone as it is beyond versatile, & can be used for micing, vocals, drums & whatever else you need. The UX1 is by far the best interface that you are going to find. ROCK ON!!
