stompboxjon's review"MIDI controller and Interface!!"

Line 6 POD Studio KB37
The Line 6 POD Studio KB37 is a 37 key MIDI controller/keyboard that has a built in audio interface. This was the first unit like this that I have ever seen. It is not common to have a MIDI controller with a built in interface. Having this makes it the ultimate portable unit because there is only one piece of gear to take with you for your MIDI controller and interface. The price of it is 350 dollars but that is nothing, compared to everything that you are getting with this interface/MIDI controller.

UTILIZATION

Setting the KB37 up is very simple and easy, it only takes a few minutes and you can use it on your Mac or PC. For your Windows system you need Windows XP service pack 2 or Windows 2000 service pack 4 or higher. If you are running it on a Vista machine it does not matter if you have 64 or 32 bit. If you want to use the KB37 on a Mac you will need OSX 10.4.6 or higher. You can use the KB37 with a USB 2.0 and even a 1.1 port.

GETTING STARTED

The KB37 is very well built and will last you a long time as both a MIDI controller and as an interface. The interface does have phantom power in case you want to plug in a condenser microphone, and there are two balanced ¼ line outs. The MIDI controller is pretty good as well, the keys are well made but they don’t have a weight to them as most similar MIDI keyboards don’t.

OVERALL OPINION

The KB37 comes with Ableton Live Lite , or you can use it with whatever DAW or application you choose to use it with. Having this unit will make your life easier; I would not get this if you are not very mobile. But if you are the type of musician that travels a lot and takes gear with you this is perfect and a must have.

Line 6 POD Studio KB37
Sound card and MIDI controller all-in-one. That's why I bought it.
However, I find it cumbersome, and does not use hyper-mobile.

UTILIZATION

The drivers seem stable, but boring to install. The endless applications for registration from LINE6 made me grumpy.
Latency is OK.

GETTING STARTED

Installation is tiring, long and laborious. Can not install without an internet connection. Too restrictive.
Podfarm sounds are too many blows and buit parasites.
GuitarRig is much better.

OVERALL OPINION

I have used that "one month since the result given the complexity of the installation made me very demanding.
The quality / price ratio remains friendly.

Line 6 POD Studio KB37
A stereo line input, two mic inputs with 48V available, a guitar input, two line outputs, a headphone, short connections complete!
I tried it with guitar, bass and microphone, and it goes well in all functions
I use a laptop with HP entry - middle range, it runs well.

UTILIZATION

Matos very stable, since I use it, I've never had a bug.
It comes with Ableton, and works very well with. Recording Latency is really really short (43ms home)
Because the PC, small holes in the sound. but again, my pc is not at all a stupid race. It is good for internet and office, but the sound in real time, I would have something more powerful: do not forget that the PC that calculates the sound!.
The recording is in stereo as well. Say what you want, but it is already good enough.

GETTING STARTED

Very easy to use, very intuitive, except for the South, or we must understand how it works. But I am not using much of the south eventually. I have not had any incompatibilities, everything goes well from the beginning.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had many a year ago, and I'm really happy! I tried several multi-effect, and we must recognize that Line6 makes things sound good.
Today, my need and my ambitions have changed, and to choose, I would take over an X3 or X3 Pro ... but at the sound, really, it's worth it. having a true utility to use the arranger, without hesitation, I take it back. Let's say I have a bit overrated this side.

Good stuff, easy setup, versatility and interesting sounds and a quality that makes you want to play: I would resume the line6. Really good stuff
