GearBox Plug-In license sales were halted upon the introduction of our POD Farm Version 1 Plug-In licenses back in the Fall of 2008.
However, the GearBox software installer STILL contains the GearBox Plug-In file, because we still have end users who had purchased the GearBox Plug-In license prior to the Fall of 2008 who are still using said effect in their recording applications.
If you are a new or recent user who has downloaded the GearBox 3.72 Installer and run this package, you will still see the GearBox Plug-In option appear in your recording program the next time you launch it, as most DAW's scan for new Plug-In files installed by default. If you wish to delete your GearBox Plug-In file (to avoid confusion), please remove the GearBox .dll file found in:
Windows VST: C:\Program Files\Line6\VstPlugIns\Line 6
Windows RTAS: C:\Program Files\Common\Files\Digidesign\DAE\Plug-Ins\Line 6
Mac AU: Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components
Mac RTAS: Library > Application Support > Digidesign > Plug-Ins > Line 6
Unless you purchased the optional GearBox license prior to the Fall of 2008, please note that only POD Farm and POD Farm 2 Plug-In licenses are available for purchase through our Line 6 Webstore.
