Line 6 POD Studio UX2
The Line 6 POD Studio Ux2 is an interface that we used to record guitar tracks with a few times. The thing that I loved about it more was the plug ins that came with it. The “Farm” plug in included 18 guitar amps, 5 bass amps, 5 bass cabs, 29 different stomp box effects and 6 mic premaps. I still use all of these plug ins to this day even though I do not use the actual interface much anymore. When I purchased it, it also came with a another pack that had about 40 more effects and filters to use and I felt like that was well worth the money to spend on this small little interface.

UTILIZATION

This interface is very simple and easy to use/set up. There are 2 ¼ inch guitar inputs and ¼ inch line inputs. There are balanced XLR inputs with microphone preamps and phantom power. It comes with Ableton Live Lite Studio Edition which will only let you record up to 16 tracks which may be enough if you are a beginner.

GETTING STARTED

If you are low on money and need an interface to record your guitar tracks with, this is the way to go. You will also get some really good effects and plug ins that you will use for ever. There have been a few driver updates over the years that they have made as well for Windows 7 users and anyone who is using Snow Leopard on a Mac. So it is basically compatible with any system you have right now unless you are on a very new system especially something like Windows 8.

OVERALL OPINION

This system is a must have, you will get some very good sound quality for a low price and a bunch of other cool effects and plug ins too. If you are more advanced I would not recommend this because you will want something a little more stable and in depth.

ericthegreat's review"grea on my mac"

Line 6 POD Studio UX2
I have had little trouble with my UX2; after upgrading from version 1 most issues just involve a restart of the computer. After messing with it for a couple of days to familiarize myself with the controls and sounds, I have been using it to record guitars/keys/bass/ and vocals on my iMac/garageband. I've been sending my recordings to fellow musicians and they are totally blown away at how good they sound. I have a friend who is a professional studio engineer and musician, and he was really impressed with the tones I was getting on my guitar through the UX1 and Gearbox. Gearbox is literally infinite in the permutations of amps/cabinets/effects/etc. that one has control over. I'm having too much fun to write anymore. Highly recommended for the budget-minded. Or anyone who just records one instrument at a time. It runs great and only had some minor issues with it loading up, but no crashes for freezes which is always a good thing. Especially when your on a mac, or maybe it doesn’t freeze because im on a mac, if I was on my pc with vista it would probably have all types of problems.

GETTING STARTED

Getting started was pretty quick and easy not much too it. Very good clear manual too.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, This is the interface you need if you are on a budget, but need something that sounds pro. I use it with ezdrummer & the included 8 track software. The effects for guitar are endless, & The thing is just plain easy to use & install. This is the BEST interface in this price range. I am 90 % happy with it. The ONLY drawback is no phantom power on the mic. jack....However, If you are using a Sure SM-57 like I am, you can get great results plain & simple. Order one today!!

Line 6 POD Studio UX2
I was looking for stuff to record, this POD seemed the right choice qualitprix level.
I play guitar and bass often I plug directly to POD. I happen to plug my volume pedal or HT-Dual in Emulated Output which allows for Pramp lamp.
There have also arrived to use it for singing, no problems this level l either.


USE

Pretty simple, close other music software before connecting and launch its Bardas. Pod Farm is very practical and very easy to use. I did not have to specially set date but the software does not seem to ncessiter.
A rule of thumb is to be able to record 3 tracks at the same time via both among and between micro guitar. Maybe even with between four Pad but I've never tried recording alone or instruments after instruments.
Not specially latency, this is adjustable according to the power of the computer (less latency = more CPU), nevertheless I have not a racing beast and I have no worries.
Comes with Ableton Lite, Reason Adapted 4, both amputs functions but simply record Ableton.

IMPLEMENTATION

No problems for the installation if you do not plug the UX2 before starting the drive. No incompatibility despite the passage of Vista 7. No manual read, I do not think there was.
The Line6 site does not seem to me to be franais is perhaps one of the defects.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for more than a year Introduced.
I like simple and convenient ct the beast. The effect mulations serve me a lot, especially anything Delay, Reverb, Noise Gate, Chorus, Tremolo, etc. I have quite used the amp sim and distos at the beginning, but I do it less and less, I pass by the HT-Dual mule that gives me a much better grain as lamp. Sometimes I select a Pramp over to color the sound.
The price quality ratio is good, the object is solid and well made.
With the experience I would perhaps not go that choice to invest in effects pedals and buy an audio interface to any beast to record with a live hardware. Despite all the beast is of good quality and if you're the kind to play alone in his room is perfect rather than to lug effects.

lukleprog's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Swiss Army Knife"

Line 6 POD Studio UX2
what else to say about the features if it is provided with what it takes to record guitar, bass, voice
2 XLR inputs (phantom power please), two jack inputs with active instruments for it seems to me,
a USB port, a SPDIF jack and headphone jack
the choice of entries is in the virtual mixer Podfarm
BOSS GS10 to my excellent passed away after the cat will be relieved it!
So I needed a similar product but considering the price of the Boss at the time (500 euros anyway) and that of the 6 line I thought I had to deal with a gadget more for what I stand corrected heavily

UTILIZATION

I use the UX2 with cubase and the driver didn 'never fails no re-installation as a PCI card that I also have and I will not mention the name
latency is low in contrast board, throw an occasional glance at the VU meters (which are very convenient for that matter) was quick to climb the towers
I have swung a couple of tracks for a bounce and he kept all its clarity
the design of the machine is very successful single buttons and lightness of all are a little cheap

GETTING STARTED

Installation is no problem I have an XP but you need an internet connection to enjoy the Podfarm
Software is not resource hungry, I can make it work with an audio editor and Nuendo together launched and it 's no no crash yet I do not have a racing while being USB2
I never used the UX2 to record one or more tracks simultaneously because I have a table for firewire recording everything
the Podfarm is simple enough to use only annoying downside: some simulations Amp absent if the software is not complete
For my part, I also use the gearbox software

OVERALL OPINION

I am a single home-studio owner, I have the UX2 for almost a year and I can not compare with the 10 GS I owned
latency is already lower than the GS10
sound higher color more potato least aigrelets, patches and other simulations are convincing but the effects for bass and vocals seem a bit neglected (that is unfortunately the case with most multi-effects) apart a patch that makes it sound like a bass Rickenbaker
compared to GS10 lacks the slow gear which cut attacks automatically (like PDAL steel but can be compensated with a volume pedal) and feadback effect simulating the feedback to this memorandum which gave a devastating effect for solos but otherwise it has nothing to envy
I recently made the vocals sound with a singer and even if it does not transcend it can fill a sound recording on the fly until something better
but the more I think it is the bounce
I was previously on a PCI card that seemed fine but when I have switched to the UX2 I redid all the mixes of my songs with this card
sound even with many tracks is clear I can lower the sound track and it is still distinctly audible in the master, the bass is well defined without absorbing any
looking back I wonder how I have managed without
considering the price it's almost given for a map of this level
the distinction which I love the most it's versatility, clarity and Podfarm which is very successful
the less they are simulations of missing amp in some patches, you need an internet connection to activate the software, the interface lacks noon, as I have been able to perceive in the model that I have a low level between the left and right channel but nothing that is handicapping for normal use
although honestly do not have it, if you need a multi-effects and a sound card without the tantrums your banker does not go beyond that is the Swiss Army knife of the musician you need
