For a few years I've used customtone to download patches directly into my unit and it's what made the POD stuff exemplary for me.

 

Yesterday I tried and it gives me a black screen with 3 links on it - that don't work.

What happened to gearbox?  Is there another version I should use or something?  Please tell me it isn't discontinued or something.

 

It says Guitarportonline is no longer an active service

 

I went thru re-authorizing everything with license manager already and updating with monkey

 

Please help - I love my XT Live..

Hey my man - guitarport is no longer.

 

Customtone is still there. I usually download a few and put them in via Gearbox off the hard drive. Try DL'ing the patch to your hard drive first then load it up that way.

Thank you for the answer - even tho it sucks.

 

It was way nice to just download them straight into the box to try them out.  I spent many many many hours doing that - then saving the ones I liked.

 

Why would they discontinue a great function like this???

 

Are they trying to push us to newer models and do the newer models have that function?

 

This was the thing that made me love this unit SO much more than my previous Boss unit.

You can just download the motherload - all the patches in one file. Extract it to your hard drive and bamn! patches till you get sick of them :-)

 

Though honestly IMO alot of the patches were so-so - though there are some gems in there.

Do you mean all the entire database of a gazillion patches?

 

FWIW in case someone else wonders I just called support and he said yes you have to save them to your computer and to use Line6 Edit and drag and drop them.

 

dang...

 

one of those cases where newer isn't always better - "update" stuff and kill great functions

Yep - it is crazy. Every patch my man, be sure to create a new folder and copy the ones you like into it as you go along. It will save you time later trying to remember "what was the name of that one?..." :rolleyes:

Crap I can't sort thru all of them.....

 

I'm sad, I thought my Pod XT Live was sex in a box.....

 

Just don't get why they would kill this awesome function/resource.

Maybe I'm missing your concern, but I don't see the issue.  When you find a patch you want to try, you click the download button.  When the save/open dialog box opens, pick "open with Gearbox".  Bada Bing, it loads.  If you like it, you save it off.

I stand corrected - it's working again for me now to download directly to the unit.

 

Thank goodness - I love my XT Live again!

 

(I swear it wasn't for a while there)
