features: although it's sonic variety is heavily geared towards the guitarist, the flexibility on bass is respectable. anything else is just a little bit here and there. everything sounds great, even with running it through computer speakers. the interface is quite vanilla, but it gets the job done nicely. (their "tonedirect" function is sweet, no latency playing it in stand-alone mode, can't wait to see how it performs inside my daw [logic express 8].)quality: everything feels solid and well-built, but it's just gonna sit quietly on my desk and hopefully see much faithful service (i've never had a quality prob with any l6 gear i've owned in the past)value: given the huge difference between the "silver" and "gold" levels, at its prior price it was a good deal, now it's simply an amazing deal. keep in mind that there will be an extra cost of a midi foot controller, etc. if you want that level of functionality.overall: if you don't need any sort of tone generation besides the software itself, and you only need one input, this is surely about the best deal on great instrument tone into your computer that you're bound to find - while it lasts

This package allows for a high quality recording of your guitar, bass, or even keyboard. I have not tested its voice abilities, but I'm sure the recordings would result well. The amount of tones is impressive. Really, for such a low price, the age of this model can easily be forgiven. If you're looking to record to a computer, this is a high-quality option for a very good price.
I cannot recommend this product any more highly. My playing has improved a good amount from the riffworks software that works flawless with the hardware. No problems with install or making anything work. I play bass and guitar, making this setup invaluable to me. The tuner works for the bass as well, which made my day.Does not work with pro tools without pro tools compatible hardware. Its the plugin that works...not the DI box.
Wow, as a 1st time user, I am sure glad I got this package. I love how you have so much control and it allows you to do so much tweaking, its almost too much! Such a great deal for people new to recording or anyone and just wants to jam out with tons of tonal freedom.
This package deal is probably the best available. I was skeptical until I actually gave the sounds a listen. For a tube tone purist like myself, it straight knocked my socks off. Great detail and articulation. Even the high gain models sound good. You can almost hear the sag and surge of power tubes running at full voltage. It took me a little while to get it configured to my system, but Line 6 has excellent update and driver support via their website. And I'm not a tech guy by any stretch of the imagination. The only put-off is the fact that the DI box it comes with must be hooked up to use the software even if you are using a separate recording interface. However, with tone-direct monitoring and silent noise floor you won't mind it at all. Amazing product for the home recording studio. If you are on the fence about whether or not to buy this immediately, Please, do yourself a favor and buy it. NOW! Free shipping! Do it!
I got this thing with little expectations. Well worth the hundred bucks they're charging. I'm getting sound that cuts through the mix without the AIR. I got the free upgrade so I can use with RTAS pre and post production... if you don't have the thousands for the major plug in's you can't go wrong with this!
I have been using the Tone Port Ux1 for over a year when I decided to pick up another one. Fortunately there was this great sale that included the GX and the Gear-Box Gold.I decided to try out the plug-in side of it with Garage Band and Logic Studio. Wow cool!!. I wasn't sure exactly how it would work but WOW.. now I can change tones on all my guitar tracks if I want to, add delay or other effects without re-recording. He heAnyway I didn't notice any difference in tone when recording the Guitar track using Gear Box stand alone, or as a plug in. I have never used the monitor outs on any of my tone ports, just the headphones. So I am not sure if the difference in tone is only an issue when using the other outs on the Toneport.I also have Amplitube 2, Metal, X-Gear, and Hendrix. But I was unable to dial in any sound that wasn't over the top. I love the harmonizer on Amplitube so, I tried to use just that as a plug in but it ,Amplitube, totally sounds like crap as the plug in. Also Amplitube was not a supported plug in with Logic Studio.
It's very easy to use and sounds great. It has every model Line 6 has - very complete! I installed it on a small Toshiba laptop. The most sounds and fun you can have for the money! You will need an internet connection to download updates and register.
Let me just start off by saying that this product is a great deal. I couldn't wait for the package to arrive at my door for nearly a week. There's a couple of issues I have noticed so far. As soon as I desperately removed the item from the box, I went through the installation process, and updating everything to the current versions took nearly 30 minutes. However, I was overwhelmed with all the possibilities that the package has to offer. It is a little difficult at first to recognize which tone/amp is which as they are given generic names like "Modern Jazz." With that aside, the software includes a metronome, built-in tuner, and access to even more tones. The gold package seems to include even more than advertised including the Metal Shop package, which I was very happy about. The quality of the recording is pretty decent, and you won't regret spending a few bucks on this package.
When I saw the offer I thought wow, what a deal. When I heard the Line6 amp models using it as a stand alone with headphones I was blown away. Then I tried to use it with Protools and a Mac. I ran into compatibility issues that that Line6 is blaming on Apple. The plug in works OK in Protools with the TonePort DI connected as a dongle. It doesn't sound as good as it does stand alone though by a long shot. When you try to use the Toneports outputs into a Protools DAW you get a lot of noise (pops and cracks) and sometimes it hangs up. Basically you can't use it that way no matter how you configure the Mac. If your OK with half of what they promise buy it. If you want it as advertised look elsewhere.
This is a great value and is the best deal going for those on a budget and need both Guitar Modeling and an Audio interface.As with any bargain there concessions and this is definitely yesterday's modeling technology and the Gearbox Plug-in interface is not the greatest. There is no ability to BPM sync to your DAW which is a strange omission.On the upside, these "old" amp models have been and still are used in many top recording studios.Also note that the tone coming out the Montor output on the DI box and the tone of the plugin are quite different. The plugin is brighter with the monitor outs being meatier. You may not like the sound of the plugin.You could go with Amplitube 2 (and variants) which is much newer and more realistic modeling but it will cost you significantly more also. Amplitube 2 is also more costly in CPU utilization with Gearbox taking much less CPU. If you run one instance, who cares but get to four on AT2 and you are about done.
