This is the opposite of the "can I use Pod Farm without TonePort?" question. A friend is interested in inexpensive digital recording. I have an old Line6 TonePort GX that I no longer use. I always considered the Tone Port to be a dongle-with-I/O-jacks that allowed me to use the amp software. Is there a way to use it without the amp software -- just using it as a one-input audio interface? Any chance I could plug this into a USB port on a Win10 laptop, have the laptop recognize it as a interface and allow it to be used with, say, Audacity? I know people had problems using TonePorts and Pod Farm in Win 10. How much of the problem is lack of drivers as opposed to the amp software not running under Win10? Does the A/D conversion take place in the Tone Port, or in the amp sim software? If this approach would work I'd be happy to give the TonePort to my friend, save him the cost of buying an interface and save me from having to pitch the Tone Port in the trash.
In other words I can use the VST plugins as long as it's through the Pod Farm Program on its own, but not calling it from within Reaper? That's sort of what I suspect, though the error message "A required device is either not authorized or not connected... Please connect your iLok or Line6 hardware and restart the application" is somewhat misleading.
I searched the forum but didn't find this. I have a Tone Port DI Silver. I've used it with GearBox and Pod Farm to record effected sounds. I've successfully registered the GearBox and Pod Farm VST Plugins in Reaper in an attempt to re-amp prerecorded sounds. Though Line6 Monkey recognizes the DI Silver and I can use it to record through Pod Farm, attempts to use the plugins on recorded tracks within Reaper result in a "can't find hardware" message, even with the DI Silver plugged in via USB. Is it not possible to use the VST Plugins this way, or am I doing something wrong?
