Q: What is POD Farm?
A: POD Farm is Line 6's new plug-in software platform that will offer POD tone to any DAW. For use with either a Line 6 hardware interface or iLok dongle, POD Farm can easily be used with all the major software recording platforms (such as, Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase, Nuendo, Garageband and more) and is available in MacÂ® AU/RTASÂ®/VSTÂ® and WindowsÂ® RTASÂ®/VSTÂ® formats.
POD Farm iLok users will not be able to run the standalone version of POD Farm software; the iLok allows for VST/AU/RTAS plug-in effect instantiation functionality only. Standalone POD Farm only functions with our TonePort/POD Studio USB devices.
Q: Can POD Farm be used with my earlier generation TonePort (GX, UX-1, UX-2, UX-8, Guitarport)?
A: Yes. POD Farm will work with all TonePort devices as a plug in (provided that you purchased the optional POD Farm Plug-In License Key and installed into the device using Line 6 Monkey) and can also be used in Stand Alone mode.
Note: TonePort GX, UX-1, UX-2 and KB37's did NOT come with a Plug-In license present from the factory. Users who bought these devices will need to purchase a POD Farm Plug-In license to get this functionality!
Q: Can POD Farm be used with my POD XT or POD X3 device?
A: POD Farm is compatible with our POD XT and X3 devices as a plug in only. It cannot be used as a standalone editor for your POD. Gearbox will remain the primary editor for all POD XT and X3 devices.
Q: Can I transfer the free POD Farm plug in I got for being an X3 owner out of my X3?
A: No. That upgrade is a factory bit that remains bound to your X3 device.
Q: Can I transfer the POD Farm upgrade from the GearBox Plug-In Gold/Silver DI to another device?
A: No. That upgrade is a factory bit that remains bound to your Gold/Silver DI device.
Q: Can I use the Bass POD XT (or XT Live) as a dongle for POD Farm?
A: No, as the Bass POD XT series cannot accept assets or model packs.
Q: Is GuitarPort Online compatible with POD Farm?
A: Currently, our GuitarPort Online subscription service is not available through the POD Farm software. GPO subscribers must continue to use Gearbox for this service.
Q: Can I have Gearbox and POD Farm installed simultaneously on my computer?
A: Yes. You can continue to use Gearbox as a plug in or stand alone application if you wish while having POD Farm installed on your system as well.
Q: What about my current recording projects that have the Gearbox plug in instantiated on them? Will they still work?
A: Absolutely. You can continue to use Gearbox as a plug in if you'd prefer. Your projects will not be harmed.
Q: Will my Gearbox tones work with POD Farm?
A: Yes. POD Farm will load all of your Gearbox presets just fine. You can continue to use them.
Q: How do I save the POD Farm presets when used as a plugin?
A: Select the folder next to the preset name, then select "save as" in the drop-down menu and rename the altered tone to whatever you like.
Q: Can I use POD Farm on more than one computer?
A: Yes. You must run Line 6 Monkey on each computer first in order to authorize that functionality.
