I've had a Line 6 Toneport UX1 for a couple of years now, I guess. It's proven to be a nice USB interface to my PC for home recording and goofing around with the headphones on. The Gearbox software that came with it has a bunch of cool amp/effect models and free artist presets available online. I even hooked it up to my studio monitors for those times when my Blues Jr. wasn't getting the sound in my head. Recently Line 6 emailed me and prompted me to download the POD Farm software, no charge. Cool. I like it. It's a sort of "new look" Gearbox that captured all my presets, no problems. So, this prompted me to run down the basement and find my cheesey little Ibanez Bass amp with RCA jack inputs. It's really not a bad little amp, the Soundwave 20 Watt 8" speaker. So here's the versatile setup that I'm working with, a nice setup on the cheap for me. Telecaster > Line 6 Toneport UX1 > Dell PC > POD Farm software > Toneport > Ibanez amp. It is amazing the variety of sound I'm getting at loud (at home) volume. Sick really. This is no revelation for the experts, I'm sure. But for a doofus like me goofing around at home I'm in awe of the possibilities. Fun stuff that would've cost tens of thousands to acheive back in the 70's and 80's. This setup is a couple of hundred clams without the guitar of choice or computer. If you have any kind of functional PC this setup could work for you, I'm sure. The UX1 has it's own soundcard. Just a thought.
