Are you selecting the Line6 UX2 ASIO as you device in Samplitude?
(I do not think you can do this in Audacity, last time a check it was not ASIO compatible).
And there is a bunch of info here, including optimizing Windows for Audio Recording.

Yes i am doing this... I have optimised windows, deactivated services anti virus etc. but its still doing same in samplitude & audacity. It worked fine on my old xp desktop dual core with 2gb ram.... it may just be a toneport/win 7 compatibility error ...
I dont know what to try next though.

try getting slim drivers (google it) free and it will check for updated drivers specific to your machine... often times finding motherboard driver updates ect that play a huge part...

All my system drivers are up to date as well.....I may have to downgrade to XP or something, i dont want to do that... but not sure what to do next. As a side note my friend has a mac with similar spec & he can rec 8 tracks at once with no issues..... with a UX8

everyone thinks their drivers are up to date... but who thinks to get a driver for their northbridge or pci bus?
slimdrivers finds those forgotten things on your motherboard as well as everything else... worth looking into.

Hi, I have slim drivers on my pc. I have all my drivers up to date. I will keep using gearbox for the time being as its not as painful as pod farm but still dropping out, i will miss the layout though.
if its any difference when i listen back to what i recorded its not like a pop (at the time i hear pop & almost like a slowdown) or anything but more like a cd skipping, where a chunk of song is missing & it jumps.
I will keep trying though as i do like pod farm.
Its just a bit disheartening when you get an idea for a song & the pc lets you down...
Any time I have tried recently, I spend about 20mins going through the hardware settings etc, I can rarely get through 1 take without some sort of error happening.
I have tried also using a mic in the onboard soundcard, this seems to work fine, but its poor quality & no real use if I cant use gearbox or farm.
Thanks for all your help folks its much appreciated, I will check my usb settings on laptop also as there may be something in there i have missed.

Sorry I forgot the link
there is a lot of things to try.
But Windows 7 is not necessarily the issue.
Many users, including myself, are running this on Win 7 without issues.

ok will try link when the line 6 comes back online... hopefully i can do this.
Does anyone else succesfully record with toneport & laptop?
I am also running in high performance mode ... I dont know what else to tweak.
I am not doing any complex stuff, just recording 2 tracks live....
