Line 6 TonePort GX
I wanted a small simple USB interface, in order to have a decent sound when I wanted to record my bass and have my guitar amplification.
There, no more simple, a jack on the front, a volume knob, period. Connected to the PC via USB, with Gearbox on the PC that takes care of emulating amps, cabinets and various effects.
For 50 € in OCCAZ Why look further?


Archi simple, we chose its head amp, the speaker, we cheat a little as you want and then, voila, live in the headphone.
Software that is updated regularly, offering other amps, other presets.


RAS, very simple.


Very good value for money, but for amateur use only, demo recording in a pinch.
The sound quality of the simulations is not great, the guitar, it suits me to play, find riffs and speed record.
With my bass, Warwick Streamer Jazzman 5, the sound is completely distorted, has nothing to do with the sound of the instrument. I have to switch to bypass nothing to spoil.

In short, it's good, it's simple, convenient, but once you plug the right tools, you limit the function USB audio interface, does not go through amps and effects offered, or just for fun, it not worth much.

Line 6 TonePort GX
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
Ease of connection-

- For what purpose?
Home studio (recording only small or two ....)

- What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
- Well I needed the configuration but I note that this is a very greedy and software that makes it logically turned to other programs at the same time so it is better a pc .. not too Obselete

- Which instruments and systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ...
- I use it to record guitar, bass and electro-ac (I have not done the test song.). connections are minimized because of the instrument we will live on TonePort which is itself plugged into a USB and mini-jack 3.5 pc speakers and ...


- The installation is done it without problems?
on that side is nickel, although I recommend to install then reboot the PC ...

-Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
currently not ...

- The general configuration is easy?
bha should put a little nose in to see the possibilities a bit ... discovery is the small side!

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
- If you have the patience to read all of a block so ... but I am a discoverer plustot me ;-)


-The drivers are stable?
no problem in relation to that yet ...

-What software do you use most often?
-Cubase or audacity (less stable ...)

I work on three tracks max ...
but with only one input jack 6.35 I proceed step by step ...
I love the guitar but two entries UX models are much more expensive ... So maybe later ....


- How long have you use it?
-A few days seulemnet

+: Ease of connectivity, compatibility, easy installation, software line six-performance space / aesthetics, price !!...

-: Heuuuu I will say the number of connections but we know at the time of purchase can not have everything at that price (59 euros!)

I will make that choice and I see the same ux next year .. because the sound is really good for home studio ....

this is the best choice for those who: are in an apartment for example, or that no material n'on appare put their guitar and pc ... often bump or two guitars .... In any case it is the best choice for those who are new to guitar recording ...

The installation is done it without problems?
Installation is child: Intallation CD, connection and go! (Vista)

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Not need the manual so the interface is logical and well thought out (Gearbox) while I am neophyte in home studio.


The drivers are stable? They are often updated?
The drivers are satables, the update is apparently réguilière and effective (not needed for now I have the latest version).

What you get lag?
There is latency? not noticed.


How long have you use it?
I use it for a week

What is so special that you like most and least?
What I like most is the easy to use, clear and crunch sounds and effects qualitée proposed. What I like least are the sound "metal" which did not at all convinced, too "dull" and "digital" I think I'll have to work beacoup more than others.

How would you rate the quality / price?
€ 57! price / quality ratio really great

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Of course!

I put 8 / 10 because of the sound "metal"

See more advice for CHARACTERISTICS.

Bought yesterday to replace my JamLab, I thought that ships with Ableton Live, but not silent. If you want to save, be sure to have a software (fortunately, I Cubase SX3).


Nothing more complicated ....

One of the latest driver updates downloads site

2 Connection of the TonePort pc

3 Roll youth!


Personally, I use it to play on the pc register, and especially for my components and send the rest of the group. Rarely do something more finished.

I sold my JamLab the singer of my group because, despite the fact that it is a good product, I wanted something more solid, more "pro".

What I regret is that there is no recording software like the JamLab.

His level, I am satisfied, the sound is good. It is not final but for normal use takes. Well, ok, it's worse than fiddling GuitarRig but the BTE, we come to have the sound you want, as long as is reasonable.


Gnrale of Manir, I'm happy (but if I only yesterday). I do not regret my JamLab, apart from recording software, has a little bored ... to be polite.

A remake, with a little more money I would take probably MODEL above but for 60 and use that I do is more than enough.

I use it for some time but it is very simple, albeit a minimal connection but did a good job for the price

Make mock-up J "records, battery (TD12), bass and guitar


The installation and configuration is quick and easy, the manual is really not necessary.


For the drivers no problem, not latency for now.


I use it for a short time but quickly realized how it works the sounds are not quite there comes a good result, easy to use does not take place, easily transportable, it is a product nice lack of MIDI can be good for the price but this module is interesting.
I touch the GX For 50 euros still under warranty I do not regret this purchase and now I use my product I will buy new again.
I put a 9 because of the MIDI port missing HELAS !!!!!

Dryss_38's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 TonePort GX
1 - The quality of sound and the many opportunities in amp simulators

2 - Recording mostly metal, personal or professional

3 - Intel DuoCore 1.8Ghz and 1 GB DDR, Windows XP SP2, Cubase SX 2, Cool Edit Pro 2.0

4 - electric guitar and bass LAG Rockline Honer Professional PJ
Commex USB and LINE IN


1 - Easy Installation

2 - No incompatibilitbr />
3 and 4 - No need for manual. Line 6 is to be done rput by musicians for musicians. The interface is very simple, beautiful and intuitive.


1 - Drivers ultra stable

2 - No more updates or make prvus

3 - Cubase SX2, Cool Edit Pro 2.0, T-Racks, Audacity, Drum Kit From Hell Superior

4 - Almost zero-latency. Ultra small and largely rectifiable

5 - A single track record both with simultaneous reading course


1 - Buy 2 months ago

2 - The simplicity of use and quality of sound, as saturated as clear, for guitar or bass. A good length of cable (USB is bte, but playing), presets tlchargeable its free on the net via the TonePort interface (sounds of Steve Vai, Trivium, Metallica Gary Moore, etc ...). Many possibilities including the choice of the microphone in front of the cabinet of the amp and the distance of the sound.
Nothing I do not like to gear this award l.

3 - Buy low on the LINE 6 POD CHARACTERISTICS. The models above with only gadget (for me) and more.

4 - Excellent qualitprix. $ 70 Canadian or about 50 euros. At this price I did not find the best.

5 - I would do without this choice hsiter.

Docmao's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 TonePort GX
Looking for a cheap hardware because I was scratching my jet dvolu on Zoom, and then as I never moves the guitar from me, I am interested in Toneport. Exclusive use home studio. It acts as a sound card but I do not use this function. I use only the output mini-jack (TRS pro I know not, chui an amateur) live on console/1212M/ordi/Cubase...affaire class.


Easy installation, no configuration incompatibility quiet, succinct and still no manual in the language of Molire (same site)


No problem with drivers and apparently well monitored by the manufacturers. Therefore not used Cubase since output latency direct Toneport.


I use it for a few days and I must say I'm pretty pat by the sounds produced by scratching my stew. What would be a real Telecaster! I usually use the plugs simulators (Amplitube. ..) the better it is. Point of parasites, presets excellent, even for my low and micro sioupl! I was hesitant because of the rsultat mini-jack output bin not a ring. Good enough for me and my configuration, I do not regret this purchase at all. Emballlivr vit'fait / well done (for Audiosolutions in '24) to 70. I recommend it. Really.

Line 6 TonePort GX
USB, and simplicity.
record bass on the song.
intel duocore, 1.86kz, 2 GB of RAM.
stuart ham bass fender, behringer mixing desk euro 502.


Installation carefree I Tlcharger the update driver vista.
yes for use of gx + there are not simple.
the user manual is clear and not those ben .... not at all clear, moreover, it is in English and if not master the language of a savage damn thee.


Driver hyper stable.
there is the update for vista wind on the site.
I use Cubase LE, gearbox, and band in a box.
latance almost zero in cubase I rgler has 2ms.
how track can be recorded with a single gx I think.


3 days I buy them on Friday morning.
the simplicity and clear sound, dynamic, clear, I had a firewire edirol fa66 and well gx sound much better.
I would do no not the same, not on quality but we must recognize the gx
cot a bit limited these connections I'll go to the store and I'll order the UX2.

Pierrotws's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 TonePort GX
Toneport case, the simplest, with just a guitar input, a headphone jack, and USB cable.
was used to record stuff clean, and even to have a amp simulation and effects on the cheap (75). Practical, simple, effective! (And much style as the JamLab, the tone of the harbor mouth, and can be hung or placed anywhere


You put the CD BEFORE you plug the ptite bete, and then installs itself. Unless you are a quiche in your computer, and you never install a program in your life, there's no problem (in the opposite case, is not really the fault of Line6)
Once installed you plug your guitar and you cry in front of the GearBox software, remembering that the whole is only 75.
The manual is useless, I know even if y 'has a ...


Then .... is great. GearBox is really gniale, it is not directly involved in the recording, but you can take your soft or soft prfr free (like Audacity). Tone Port acts as a sound card, very easy to use.
No latency is great.
It can only record one track, is not a default, as is not to record an entire group at once, with each entry.
Any con, for lovers of compos stupid, who do not want to buy the latest in home studio for I-don't-know-what-to-thousands-d'euros. The sound is clean, a place not eat. Is nickel! Only default, the GearBox software is in English, and there's no patch. One that will BMOL 9, as t s'aurait handy when I beginners with the program. For non-bilingual, do not worry be, is very instinctive.


I have for some time, and I have all my renregistr terms with it, the result is stunning.
the +: the effectiveness of simplicity not very expensive, very useful, a very basic home studio, as I was looking for. Fed up with having to go through the South, I chose my sounds, and more, it's cheaper: P
the -: To quibble, the GearBox in french. But there's always wrong.
I tried the JamLab It used dailleurs my first choice. The JamLab is fine, but for 10 + of my dealer offered me the TonePort GX. The app is that of all the Line6, the pros of simulation, it is a little more class (is a real case, not a USB cable / jack from a cot on the other headphones) and can rgler the output volume directly on the TonePort.
Honestly, the ratio quality price is really gniale! There's the range above, but I'm just not useful. It suits me perfectly. Is what I'm looking for a long time!

Phil5150's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Line 6 TonePort GX
See site line6 because the list is long!
The sound modlisations trsralistes at the grain of each simulation.
on the other hand, it still lacks the reproduction of the attack on HP (you know what "Wooouuuammmm" if CHARACTERISTICS for mtalleux when pummeled on the low E that can restore a true front microphone jack amp and can not return the modlisation, but hey this is tip top TonePort GX!.
I use it with a guitar ibanez saber mounts EMG 81 and 85 ... adcoiffe STRID!


Quick and easy installation, the manual is in English on the other hand ...
Beware buy one more mini-jack cable / RCA Stereo to connect the output of the TonePort line out (mini jack output) directly to your monitor speakers (if available RCA attention!) If you want used as the TonePort GX sound card.
You can also configure the TonePort as plug in your squenceur prfr.
Finally, possibility to buy packs later models like the pod xt and 30 days offered for fun or perform on-site GuitarPort On Line.


Hat line 6, simulations and especially the effects are of high quality for 72 euros is really given. Zero-latency and no bug APRS several uses.
I was looking for a solution home recording studio quality sound and close my Flextone 3 that I use live.
The TonePort GX is the ideal solution for work with headphones and / or monitor speakers while bnficiant the best research of Contents modlisation.


Line 6 has aimed on target, a no-fault will become a card in the weeks ahead. I recommend all eyes closed.
