GX Studio and Riffworks
by coolsounds on 2011-12-28 08:48:56

Hello

I recently purchased the GX studio and loaded all supplied software (Pod Farm 2, Riffworks and Ableton Live 7). I upgraged the drivers and software using LIne 6 Monkey and the various websites.

Pod Farm works fine (although it has a tendency to crash if it cannot find a tone that is greyed out) but I have a problem with Riffworks. The standard edition (T4) works albeit it keeps asking me to upgrade and when I go to the site it provides the same version I already have. However, the Line 6 version only works in demo mode.

Can you please supply answers to the following:

  • Is the Line 6 version of Riffworks included as a free part of the GX Studio, or do I have to buy something extra to make it work fully?
  • Is Propellehead Record unlocked by a line 6 application or do I have to buy a licence from them?
  • Do I need Record if I already have Riffworks and Ableton Live 7

I have looked into the forums but there seems to be conflicting answers and as a complete novice I am confused and frustrated!

Your help would be appreciated

Regards

Martin

The Line 6 Edition of Riffworks is no longer being updated and does not officially support Windows Vista, Windows 7, Snow Leopard, or Lion.

you have a few options available:

A free version can be downloaded here:

The Standard version is not free:

Sonomahas provided a discounted crossgrade for Line 6 Edition owners:

Your personal Riffworks data files are fully compatible. Simply copy those files to your new computer to use with your new Riffworks installation as you would with personal data files for any other application.

Additionally, Record is a discontinued product. It requires a purchased license to run. It was replaced by Reason 6, which also requires a license to run. Riffworks is a simple way to record and arrange songs, while Reason is a full-blown MIDI and audio production software.
