MGR/Wesleigh's review"Line 6 Guitarport"

Line 6 GuitarPort XT
I bought this unit in Holland because i dont earn a lot of money, but still wanted to have many possibilities, i payed roughly 120 pounds for it.

This 'guitarport' has so many possibilities, that can even grow because line6 has made it possible that you can download new updates, effects, and styles of playing.. You can basicly press on a button for example 'Jimi hendrix' and it puts the effect that Jimi uses to play with, so you can play just like him.

What i dont like that because you have to play through you're computer speakers, you cant just take the 'Guitarport' and give a gig somewhere, you have to play at a computer.. But the price makes up for everything, considering a normal Stompbox (single effect box) has a price of about 100 pounds.

The construction well its a little box with on one side an socket for you're guitar cord, on the other side a socket for the withbrought usb cable. The quality of the unit is super, only if you have got bad quality speakers attached to you're pc, then the problem wont be the guitarport, but you're speakers.

Overall the Guitarport produced by Line6 is an outstanding product. Everybody can learn from it, even the professionals, and for the beginners it opens a new world of infinite possibilities..

MGR/Nick Farafontoff's review"Line 6 Guitar Port"

Line 6 GuitarPort XT
I bought this item because I use the line 6 pod pro with my live rig, so insted of moving all that heavy gear to and from band rehersal I bought this to keep in the studio. I paid $99.00 + tax when it was on sale at guitar center.

I was suprised to find all that it offered to its online members. I wanted a line 6 so that the guitar in my studio demos would sound the same as the rehersals and live shows. You can also download any guitar sound that you like, line 6 has a tone library where you can enter an artist's name or a band name and you get their effect settings and lessons if you need them.

although there is a hum reducer, unless you have a lcd monitor you will hear some noise if you are too close to the screen.

This unit is small and durable, it has a volume knob right on top that makes it easy to adjust quickly.

The bottom line is, line six at this time is the leader in guitar amp modeling.
everyone is trying to emulate the warm, harmonic-rich sound of a class A tube amp, the line 6 engineers have done a great job. I use (like many other artists) line 6 effects with a tube amp. you can hear my sound at my website 16 bit sound.

MGR/WoodbeKottke's review"Line 6 Guitar Port"

Line 6 GuitarPort XT
I purchased the Line 6 Guitar Port at a local music store for $99. I bought the unit after reading a glowing review of the unit's stomp box effects and tube-amp modeling in a computer geek magazine. I play primarily acoustic guitar music and have no desire (or cash) to buy all the effects boxes, amps, etc. needed to "rock-out" but I still like to make noise occasionally.

The Line 6 Guitar Port and included software allows me to play around with my acoustic/electric guitar in ways I never dreamed possible. I can alter my guitar's sound with an amazing array of effects - all of which are nearly perfectly rendered. As an added bonus the unit also allows me to record my playing directly to my PC. I have yet to explore the Guitar Port website but for a small monthly fee they offer lots of extras.

As an earlier reviewer noted, the system requirements are very specific. Before you purchase the Guitar Port be SURE to read them carefully. You shouldn't have a problem with any quality PC built within the last two years. I am currently running the Guitar Port software on a Windows XP machine with an AMD XP2400 processor and Soundblaster Live and have no compatibility issues what so ever. The unit connects to a USB port on my PC and another line goes from the unit's headphone jack to the line-in jack on my soundcard.

The construction of the unit is simple and solid. All of the many tweaks to the sound are accomplished with mouse clicks on-screen. The only dial on the Guitar Port itself is for volume. The bottom is equipped with punchouts to semi-permanently mount the box, if need be.

I feel the Line 6 Guitar Port is well worth the relatively small investment.

MGR/Andres Paz's review"Line 6 Guitar Port"

Line 6 GuitarPort XT
I purchased this product from musiciansfriend.com for $170.00 plus shipping.

What I like about this product is that for its price, the sounds it can make are pretty awesome.

I purchased it because I was trying to record loops for the sofware Acid Pro and Cakewalk, but because I was using my laptop's mike line, I ended up having too many unwanted noices. I thought that by connecting to my laptop through a USB port, I would eradicate all the unwanted noices.

This product did get rid of all the unwanted noices I was having.

I have Windows XP and it worked fine.

The problem I ended up having however, are:

1. The Line 6 Guitar Port software is not compatible with Cakewalk or Acid Pro. So, I still can't record the loops I wanted to record in the first place.

2. For some reason, when I connect my laptop to my amp everything goes perfect, but when I connect any of my pedals between my laptop and the amp, I lose all the sound. I thought that maybe the problem was that I had a bad cable or a bad battery, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I have no idea why this is happening or how to solve it.

3. Other programs, like antivirus or screen savers, tend to disrupt the sound quality and when they use too much memory or something, undesireble fuzz and grrrrrr sounds come through.



It is made out of good quality and it seems to be a very durable unit if not abused.

Great sound, but it is useless for recording loops for Cakewalk or Acid Pro.

To do what I originally wanted to do, I still have to purchase a recording machine, such as a Korg Pandora PXR4 4-track digital recording studio. Which costs around $300 plus tax and shipping.

With that machine, I hope to be able to record the Acid or Cakewalk drums and base loops on one track, and voices and other instruments through other tracks.
