New pod UX2 user here...upgrade to podfarm 2.5 question..
by district13 on 2012-07-29 15:06:07

He all...well im planning to purchase the UX2 tomorrow from my local dealer and im pretty sure the package comes with podfarm 2.0...now my question is if i want to upgade to the latest version, do i load the disc with 2.0 first and then upgrade..or do i go with something i saw on youtube and not use the 2.0 disc and upload the latest (2.53 i believe?) from the website?   (that is what i saw on a line6 vid) also if i do that how does it know i am entitled to the full version since making the purchase?  Is that where the license manager program comes in?  do i use the license number on the 2.0 disc or something...just want to make sure i get the full 2.5 version when i upload..thanks....imn a total newb when it comes to this.

Yeah, do not use the disc.

Dowmload the most recent drivers and Line6 Monkey.

After installing the driver you can run th Monkey to get the most recent software.

Finally you will use the License Manager to authorize.2.0 does not have the license manager, but it comes bundled with the newest Monkey).

Youwill not have the full version, but assuming it is new you should receive the FX Junkie add-0n for free.

Also, here is a vid for getting started.

you will have the full standard version... but platinum is not included, it would cost extra or you can get the model packs you want.

ok so it will ask for a licence number or something when authroizing 2.5 ??  im assuming it will be the number on the 2.0 disc or the number on the unit?

no, it will just read the firmware on your device and link that with your user account.
