World-class POD tone meets 24-bit/96kHz 8-channel recording.

Start recording with TonePort UX8, the professional recording interface that combines supremely pro audio specs with tremendous input/output flexibility and the POD Farm Platinum software plug-in, to deliver legendary POD tone to any DAW.

NOTE: As of April 2010, if you order this product, you'll automatically be upgraded to POD Farm 2.0.

TonePort UX8 is the only USB 2.0 audio interface that combines the powerful tone-shaping mojo of Line 6's acclaimed POD Farm Platinum software—the same tone engine used by POD—with recording inputs for 8 simultaneous channels of studio-quality 24-bit/96 kHz audio. The sturdy and stylish rackmountable design delivers the kind of features and components you expect in a professional unit.

TonePort UX8 immediately impresses with an eye-catching front panel design that houses trim knobs, signal activity, and clip LEDs, as well as two distinctive, retro-inspired VU meters. But it gets even better under the hood. TonePort UX8 provides the discerning producer with 8 XLR inputs, 81/4-inch line inputs, 2 1/4-inch front panel instrument jacks, 8 1/4-inch balanced line output jacks, and 2 stereo headphone jacks, as well as stereo RCA S/PDIF input and output.

Of course, Line 6 is all about tone, and TonePort UX8 delivers in spades with the stunning sound of POD Farm Platinum. The comprehensive collection of modern and classic amp and effect models includes 78 guitar amps, 24 guitar cabs, 28 bass amps, 22 bass cabs, 97 stompbox and studio effects, and 6 mic preamps for guitar, bass, and vocals. What's more, TonePort UX8 will never let your killer tones lag behind your inspiration. Line 6's outstanding ToneDirect technology allows for superior low-latency monitoring regardless of the buffer size in your recording app. (POD Farm Platinum is Mac AU/RTAS/VST and Windows RTAS/VST compatible for seamless integration with major recording applications.)

If you're looking for a computer recording interface with amazing tone, studio-quality inputs and outputs, and hassle-free low-latency recording, look no further than TonePort UX8.

Comments about Line 6 TonePort UX8 Recording Interface:

Hi all,

This things work perfectly and so easily with my macbook. It is very accessible, the moment you feel like playing it so easy to turn everything on. Settings are simple. Hence it is probably a better product for the recreational player.

What i like about it the most is it's durability. I've been using it for years, having it dropped on the ground many times, and it still works like it always did. If there is a problem with anything, it is most likely to be coming from your guitar, or from the usb cable, not from this box.

I use it together with gearbox obviously, and there is a VERY decent collection of bass & guitar effects b built in. It's all i ever needed over the years.
