Install the software first guitar rig, then the drivers of the pedal, connect the USB cable while the two and restart. It works right away in Stand Alone or with your sequencer, but with some tinkering to do with a Laptop.
Englais manual, but ok. I did so to speak, hardly used.
2 input jacks, each with a volume control + selection of input level (or line-hi-z instrument).
2 mono outputs (left-right) with gain switch (+ or-14dB) they say on the record, but I have not checked seriously, and I have big doubts.
A headphone output with volume.
2 inputs for external pedals
2 MIDI IN / OUT
A plug for the USB cable with a hook system for the protection of said cable.

It runs very well with Windows XP and Seven. Only the power of the PC account.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

With a desktop PC in recent years, no worries. (2 g ram, cpu AthlonX4). All the PCs are used in 32 bits.
I even tried with an old PC of 2004, and it works, but with latency. (512mb of ram, cpu Athlon 2400 + 2G, and a sound card that I dare not name).
With the laptop, (4G of ram, dualcore cpu 2x2.4Ghz) there, I encountered problems. Since it is dedicated to music, no internet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, modem, etc. disabled in the bios. The internal sound card is disabled. So far so good, except that it took to cool the beast because when the fan HDD starting up, I heard a cracking sound was flipping out.
With a cooler Cooler Master, no problem.
Latency: 5.1ms input, 4.9ms in output at 44100 Hz, set to 96 samples.
Okay, I give this note because I already knew the problems of laptop, so I did not have too much trouble to set all.

OVERALL OPINION

No crashes in 4 months of use
The number of potential is enormous, provided they are objective, knowing how to use all, and to be open. Ie, to couple with another soft (torpedo), preamp, etc..
I much prefer the rendering of Pod 2 compared to that I sold at Digitech pedal Gnx3, and other Zoom G2.
The sound of my different guitars is not denatured.
Me, it suits me perfectly, especially since I can not use my amp for a few shows that you are doing in the year (ten).
I want to emphasize the quality of the sound card of the pedal which is greater than the M-Audio fast track pro bassist, my old M-Audio Delta 1010.
The site native answers, informs.
I guess just that Native is a system to replace the portable stage, and then I'd be happy, as the amp back personal ....
For 280 Euro with the soft guitar rig 4, no problem
