The TonePort UX1 and UX2

Following on from Line 6’s Guitar Port technology, come the new TonePort USB devices. These comprise of the UX1 and UX2. The UX1 features a high-quality microphone input with preamp, a guitar/bass instrument input, stereo line inputs and outputs, stereo headphone jack, and an analog merge monitoring input. The units use USB 1.0 connections to ensure wide compatibility with computers hardware and an extremely wide range of sounds for a variety of intruments – not just guitar and bass, although there's much in them from the PodXT that will keep axe-wielding shredders happy too. TonePort UX2 adds more features like analog VU meters, a second microphone input and preamp, phantom power for both preamps, stereo digital S/PDIF out, a padded instrument input, dual footswitch jacks assignable to MIDI functions such as start/stop and punch in/out, and independent volume controls for the headphone and main outputs. Both units support 44.1/48KHz with 16/24-bit recording, a 96KHz mode, and drivers for ASIO, WDM, and Core Audio. Both units also feature ToneDirect monitoring – a unique way of hearing fully processed audio while recording with incredibly low latency regardless of the buffer settings in your recording app. Included with every TonePort is Line 6 GearBox software that delivers the brains of much of Line 6’s DSP algorithms with a familliar hardware-like, simple to operate user interface. GearBox includes 16 amp models and 24 cabinet models from the studio-standard PODxt, 5 amp and cab models from Bass PODxt, 6 models of the most in-demand microphone preamps ever created, and 24 faithful sounding effects ranging from studio compression to distortion to tape echo with up to 10 at once for adding the perfect vibe to any track. TonePort UX1 and UX2 both ship with Ableton Live Lite – Line 6 Edition recording software for a complete recording experience right out of the box. TonePort UX1 MSRP $175.00
TonePort UX2 MSRP $269.00
