I recall some discussion about recording dry and processing after the fact with this setup, but can't find it. I just pulled out my UX2 and set it back up for some recording and can't seem to figure it out. Any pointers?

yep. In the mixer section of podfarm you have sends 1-2 and 3-4. Generally 1-2 is your processed sound that you hear when playing. Select them this way.
IN reaper set up 2 tracks to record the guitar. One track receives send 1-2 (wet) the next track 3-4 (dry). You can then use podfarm plugin (or other) to process the recorded track later.

Awesome, thanks! But now that you mention it, it seems like the POD Farm plug-in was required to do this, right? Or does it work with the stand-alone software. I'll go play with it.

OK, so I got that taken care of. Just haven't figured out how to route the dry signal back through POD Farm for processing. What am I missing? Sorry for what I'm sure is a really stupid question.

after you have the dry track recorded, you need to add PodFarm as a (VST or other effect) to that track, during playback of the track.

Here's an old thread I started about it.
I tried using the dry outputs from the toneport and didn't like the results from the converters in the tone port, my other audio interface was much better sounding so I used a splitter before the toneport. The direct box I use as a splitter (LittleLabs Redeye) also serves as a reamp box for later.
I still use a similar setup but now I have a very nice tube mic/line preamp that I run the dry guitar through before it hits the converter. Not a huge difference, but since I have it, I use it it and it works well.

I use a UX1 and Gearbox rather than Podfarm (which I also have) into SonarHS
You have to use the Line6 software to get all the ins and outs from the TonePort.
I then turn all the FX and emulation in Gearbox off - clean console.
I do however DI into the Toneport, so I am using pedal FX and a combo with a DI attenuator to line-level from the speaker. You could use a mic. So I am not recording dry, my amp and pedals are better than any software, besides all the post FX in SonarHS are better than those in Gearbox/Podfarm, so little benefit of inserting as VST.
If you DI straight into the Toneport then you do have to monitor on headphone or its output to a studio monitor (or e.g. a suitable hi-fi amp).
