I haven't heard of this problem affecting the UX2 but I have seen it on various USB interfaces from time to time.
A few quick questions:
1.Do you have the interface connected through a USB hub?
2.Have you tried different USB ports on the back of your computer?
3.Have you uninstalled and reinstalled your drivers?

Hi David, thanks for your suggestions. I have the USB connected to a rear port but haven't tried each/every port... Really, do I need to install drivers for every port to test them all for popping?
I've used this Tone Port with a few different PCs and laptops but I probably took precautions to avoid the expected pops, so can't be sure if it's a USB problem. But you've forced me to experiment. I have a spare Tone Port which will be a good 'control unit' to put into the experiments. I'll report results provided I survive the knee stress, elbow and cranial traumas; and, of course, the marriage, which is tested regularly, especially when there's too much dead air coming from the studio. "Why doesn't all this expensive gear just WORK?" On that point, I ask the same question regularly.
In the meantime, all suggestions and comments are welcome. Really do need to make the reboot 'bumps 'n pops' to take a hike. No doubt they could destroy speaker and tweeter diaphragms . Thanks.

Hi Overdub, I just jumped online to research this same annoyance that has been bugging the heck out of me for far too long. I also have the Toneport UX2 and am driven nuts by the popping, or having to power off my speakers constantly. Anyway, I notice that your post was over a year ago. Did you ever work out a solution? I am very interested in hearnig about your current situation.
I just bought a new iMac but this issue also happened with a PowerMac G5.
I wonder if other/newer Line 6 gear does this?
I am hopeful that you will respond. I hope things are better for you!

This has been a known issue since the day UX devices were released. We talked about it back then alot. The only solution is to turn your speakers on after booting up, and off before shutting down what a pita

Hi everyone, I have the Toneport GX and the popping gets pretty annoying (not just from powering on/off but signals get cut during recording/playback). Does this happen with the new Line 6 POD UX models?
