Hi all, I ge the following error when I try to connect my Pod XT Live to my iMac to use it with Line 6 Edit.

 

An exception was caught.

 

java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException: null

 

Does anybody know what this means, and how I can resolve it??

 

 

All help is appreciated, but please bear in mind that I am not a Mac expert, and have no knowledge of Java.

Thanks in advance

 

I am running OSX 10.8.5 on my 27" iMac

your life will be easier if you just use gearbox instead. http://line6.com/software/

it's much newer, and does pretty much the same stuff.

Thank for the reply, but that was not really the answer I was looking for.

The reason I am saying this is because when I use Gearbox, the sounds are all different than when I use Line 6 Edit. so is there anyone who can help me out with this.

 

So far I have tried

 

Reflashing: does not work as after about 15 seconds I get the message Line 6 device has stopped communicating

Firmware update with USB: Does not make any difference

uninstalling Java on iMac and reinstalling the latest Java: does not work

 

Thanks for any help

the sounds are identical, all the sound is processed by the pod... the tool you used to edit it has no bearing on the sound that comes out of your pod.

 

but the problem is making java work on your mac, if you want edit.. some people prefer it.

you might try checking onto an apple or java forum.
