MGR/MattG's review"Line 6 UX2"

Line 6 TonePort UX2
This is an entry level recording interface with two XLR inputs, two quarter inch instrument inputs, and two quarter inch line in's. It has a head phone jack, also quarter inch. It has two analog quarter inch outs and a Spdif digital out. There are two footswitch controls and a stereo monitor in. It connects via USB, and supplies phantom power. The interface comes with Pod Farm software which is a modeling plug in. It also comes with Ableton Live Lite, and Reason Adapted.

I bought this unit from an ebay store for $189. I shopped for many different units but I felt this was the best thing for a beginner to learn to record on. It came with everything I needed, software and all, to get started and learning the basics.

It is very easy to use. All you have to do is plug in, make sure you have the right input selected and record. The setup was easy as well. If you are using the Ableton software that was included, it guides you through to get the interface set up. If you have your latency settings set right, the interface has very small latency even when you are recording a processed signal. The Pod Farm plugin has some neat sounding presets and you can get some decent sound by tweaking EQ. The controls are very easy to use as well. Both of the mics have a gain control and there is a headphone level and an output level. The phantom power button is clearly labeled. Once you figure out how to use reason, it is also a powerful program. Each program is only a trial version but they all are very usable to start out.

I wish you could select the input you are recording with on the interface itself and not in a program. It also needs to be able to record inputs simultaneously. This isn't really a complaint for the interface, but they could have included a tutorial on how to use Reason with Albeton.

It seems to be built very well. I haven't had any trouble with it yet. There isn't much else to say here.

I think this is the best little package you can get for $200 or less. It has everything you need to get started and is fairly easy to use. You certainly wont end up with Pro Tools professional recording but it is a great way to learn.

MGR/Brock's review"Line 6 UX2"

Line 6 TonePort UX2
I've been playing guitar for only a few years, (drums for 10+, bass for about 5, keys for maybe a bit longer) and more recently making electronic music for my project Time Zones and Area Codes.

I bought it from guitar center for a little less than $150. I liked the reviews on the site and I needed an interface to record my guitar with.

<a href="http://guitarcenter.com">http://guitarcenter.com</a>

It's super easy to use, sounds awesome, comes with free software (without needing 'unlock' codes), has awesome amp modeling technology, sounds great with more than just guitars, has 2 XLR inputs for mics (which recently got me into doing more ambient/noise work), and pretty much all-around rocks. The bypass button is the icing on the cake though, not having to use their crazy digital rigs when you don't necessarily need to. Awesome!

Clipping noises, and lots of them. Even when there's no peak going on, I sometimes get an annoying little ticking sound that ruins my loop or track or whatever i'm working on. It usually can't be EQ'd out without losing my perfect tone. Also, the sounds are a bit 'digital' sounding, so unless you're using the bypass with certain instruments you're going to want to punch your studio monitors in the face.

In all honesty, I don't think it's that big of a drawback (unless you plan on playing football with the device), but it's not built THAT great. It will last, as long as you treat it with semi-special care.

This thing is amazing. Sure it's not a tank, but if you need to record guitar, vocals, bass, keyboards, didgeridoo, trumpet, violin, harmonica, or just about anything this is definitely for you.

MGR/John Miker's review"Line 6 UX2"

Line 6 TonePort UX2
Playing for 17 years (Rock and Metal mostly) I also have a recording degree from the "Recording Workshop" in Chillocothe OH

Bought new on Ebay for $200

It's an all in one solution for recording Guitars/Vox/Bass. It works fantastic and stable on windows XP with my recording software (Magix music studio 10). The guitar sounds from Line6 are really good for the price. The unit features sounds from the Bass Pod and also has excellent effect options for vocals. This one unit has easily replaced 10 seperate peices of music gear.

You have to buy additional software to bring the unit up fo the full PODXT (like the guitarport).

Excellent. Modern sound with a vintage look.

This unit is a fantastic deal if you have a newer computer to run it on. If you can get live drum tracks into your computer then you can do high end studio work on your home PC (with a good quality condenser mic for vocals).

Audiofanzine FR's review

Line 6 TonePort UX2
(Originally written by jool hobbit/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I bought it thinking it would come in very handy to make quick demos.

It has the connections I was looking for, authentic guitar and bass sounds in every music style, vocals, etc.

I use it for demo tapes and it does a good job.

I have a Dual Core computer with 2 GB Ram and I haven't had a problem.

Line 6 is the best at guitar simulation!

Some presets are stunning!

UTILIZATION

1 - Install.

2 - Connect.

3 - Play.

Take a quick look at the PDF user's manual, update the drivers... Everything goes sweet!

PS: don't forget to disable the sound card of the computer.

GETTING STARTED

- Two simultaneous recording channels.

- Very stable, almost perfectly stable if you configure your computer properly.

- Virtually no latency.

OVERALL OPINION

I've owned it for two years and I love it's ease of use and the guitar simulations. You'll quickly find the sound you need and they all sound very authentic... it's stunning!

It was conceived for musicians who want to jam and record with their PC and refuse to go through the hassle of long amp miking sessions, which end up in lousy results (due to lack of knowledge and adequate gear).

Pros:

- authentic simulations (guitar, bass, preamps)

- Possibility to increase the amp number

- Easy to use, even for DAW beginners

- Amazing Gearbox and Podfarm software tools.

- Value for money

- Very reliable and frequently updated drivers.

- Line 6 professionalism

Cons:

- The output converters are obviously not the best on the market. I just bought an RME Fireface 400 and it unveiled a totally new world to me (but then again the price isn't the same).

- Cheap plastic housing.

- No MIDI

- Quality of some effects.

The value for money is great. You'll be able to quickly record bass, guitar and vocal parts that sound authentic.

Check some demos I made using only this sound card:

www.myspace.com/goodchlorine

Guitar, bass and vocals were recorded with the Gearbox software. I used a SM57 for vocals (connected directly to the preamp of the sound card).

Ableton Live was also included. I heard it's a great sequencer but I never used it.

I wouldn't buy it again just because I don't buy the same product twice........
