WHY CAN'T I GET THE GEARBOX PLUG-IN?
by whistler1172 on 2012-12-07 14:00:13

I have the POD XT and Gearbox. I never purchased the gearbox plug in because I just recently got into recording. However now I see that the gearbox plug-in is no longer available. Then I see that you can't use the pod farm as a plug in with the XT and that you have to use the Gearbox as the plug-in for the XT. Why would you get rid of access to something that has to be used for the XT. The only way to get my gearbox and POD XT settings into a plug-in is buy paying the $99 for the POD Farm 2.5 license so that it will recognize the POD and Gearbox. Right now I have the free version but it won't let me access all the amps and efects that I have in Gearbox. This doesn't seem fair to me just because I just now got into recording and hadn't loaded the gearbox plug-in before. Can you please bring it back for those of us who never got that yet?

pod farm will work as a plugin for the XT....

but it's really moot... because the only way to get pod farm is to get 2.5 which works with any coreaudio or ASIO interface (including the XT)

even if pod farm 1, or gearbox plugin still existed, they would be the same price as pod farm 2.5...

so yeah the price is high etc... but it is what it is.

if you originally had a gearbox plugin license and just never used it...

that license is automatically upgraded to pod farm 1...

so then you can get that without additional charge...

worth a try...

just go here: http://line6.com/software/">http://line6.com/software/">http://line6.com/software/

pull down in the middle... select pod farm... download latest. (1.12)

POD Farm plug-in replaces the Gearbox plug-in. The GearBox plug-in was not free, it was a license you had to purchase.

You can't use POD Farm to edit patches on the xt series, for that you still use GearBox.

Nothing prevents you from using the POD Farm plug-in. If you purchase a POD Farm license I would recommend getting the POD Farm for computer (hardware independent) and NOT for i-Lok.
