you should be fine with that unit... the unit can be sold and used until it dies....
skip gearbox though... free upgrade to pod farm 1.x (not 2.x)
and yes, you can use it as an interface without using gearbox/pod farm

Great, thank-you! I will give it a try.
I am curious. With a piece of harware like the UX1 or GX or older Guitarports, what happens if you get one of those without the software?
Can you still download and use whatever software came with that hardware at the original time?

you can download the line6 software here and that should just work, because the license is hardcoded onto the hardware...
however, some units come with third party (non-line6) software.... for that you'd need the disc and product keys.

One final question. If I buy a Toneport DI Gold, and the owner transfers NOTHING at all, can I still download the software, and will it work?
Is there some minimum action that needs to be by the original owner to transfer the hardware or license to the new owner?
You say the license is hardcoded to the hardware piece.
For example, if I find a Toneport DI Gold in a dumpster (hypothetical), and plug it in, what would I need to get it to work besides downloading the software?
Thank-you all for your help.
