  1. Many new users have contacted us with questions regarding the usage of Line 6 POD Studio USB audio interfaces in conjunction with AVID's ProTools recording software. Here are a few important things to be aware of: ProTools version 8.05 or earlier requires that the user runs a proprietary DigiDesign,AVID or M-Audio audio interface device with this software. POD Studio devices cannot be connected to Pro Tools via USB and used as the main audio Input/Output device. Basically, the AVID-approved hardware device has proprietary security/licensing scheme embedded inside to allow the user to run the Pro Tools application. If the device isn't present, the program will not launch. Pro Tools 9.0 or later can interface directly with Line 6 interfaces. This version supports ASIO,Core Audio and third party audio interfaces. If you are currently running Version 8 and would like to use your POD, POD Studio or TonePort with Pro Tools, you will have to upgrade. Line 6 License Manager can authorize your Line 6 licenses to your computer, allowing you to use your Line 6 Software in any Pro Tools version without the need for a Line 6 interface. For more information, please refer to page 1.5 of the Line 6 License Manager User Guide. For more information about ProTools, you can visit AVID's website. Of course, you can use the Line 6 POD Studio USB interfaces with any recording applications that do not require a proprietary hardware device. Among these programs would be: SONAR, Cubase, Digital Performer, Live, Logic, GarageBand, Reaper just to name a few.
  2. Terms Before we begin here are some terms to know POD Farm Application is a tone modeling application for all non-POD Line 6 USB recording devices . The application processing the audio from your device on the way to your recording software. Gearbox is the old version of POD Farm. Gearbox operates as a standalone application, standalone editor for POD XT/X3 devices, plugin, and GuitarPort Online client. Amp Farm is the first Line 6 modeling software. It is only available for Protools systems. It has been discontinued by AVID and will not be supported on Pro Tools 11 or higher. Toneport is the old product family name for Line 6's USB recording devices such as Toneport GX, Toneport UX1, Toneport UX2, Toneport UX8, Toneport KB37. POD Studio is the newer version of Line 6's USB recording devices and POD Farm software. This package contains POD Farm software and a USB recording device.

  3. Q: What is the KB37 used primarily for? A: It is a 37-key USB MIDI keyboard/control surface and TonePort USB audio interface. The KB37 will be able to send and receive MIDI CC information and process audio input and output across the USB connection to the host computer. Q: What are the knobs in the center top of the keyboard for? A: They are 4 software-assignable MIDI Continuous Control parameter knobs with 4 soft-buttons and a dedicated set of MIDI transport controls. The KB37 can control assignable MIDI parameters in most software synthesizer/samplers on the market today, along with most digital audio recording application sequencer track transport controls. Note: The KB37 does not have any of it's own onboard sounds. It is a MIDI controller that sends MIDI data to the computer and any installed MIDI software synthesizer/sound software. Q: What are the Audio Specs for the TonePort I/O section? A: Sample rate conversion at 16 and 24 bit at 44.1, 48 and 96 kHz. 2 XLR inputs with mic preamps and +48V phantom power. 2 Guitar/Bass Inputs – use the Pad input for guitars and basses with high level pickup outputs, or the normal input. Dual analog VU meters (software assignable to input, record send, and output levels). Q: Can I use GearBox editing software with the KB37? A: Yes, the KB37 is a GearBox software supported TonePort family device. Reference Links: Assigning KB37 Transport Keys To Logic 7 MMC Input must be enabled in Logic 7 in order to receive MMC from the KB37. From the main application menu, open Preferences>MIDI Select the Sync tab Click the MIDI Sync Song Settings button in the bottom right; this launches the Song Settings dialog. In the section labeled "MIDI Machine Control (MMC)" check the "Listen to MMC Input" option Note that this is a per-song option. To make this option global, you must modify your template file. Open Line 6 Audio/MIDI devices. Go to the MIDI tab. Click the Settings button. Choose a preset from the presets list. For each transport control, change the "To MIDI Out" parameter to "MIDI CC", assign a MIDI CC (for this example, we'll use 20-24), and change Switch Mode to Momentary. Click the Apply button, name the preset, click the Save icon and click OK. Click OK on the next screen. Assigning KB37 Transport Keys To Sonar 6 Go to Options/MIDI Devices and choose the KB37 as the input device and choose OK. Go to Options/Controllers/Surfaces. Click the Add New Controller/Surface icon. For Controller/Surface, choose ACT MIDI Controller. Input port should be the KB37. Click OK. Go to Views/Toolbars and ensure Controllers/Surfaces is selected, then close the window. In the Controllers toolbar, click the Controllers/Surfaces Properties button that is at the right end of the Control Surfaces toolbar. Although you can choose any preset, the M-Audio Ozone is laid out closest to the KB37 layout, so use it for this example. In the Controllers tab, you'll see 8 columns, each containing 4 three-row sections, three of which should be labeled "N/A". Go to the last of those 3 rows and click the n/a label to name it Rewind. Name the next 3 N/A fields from left to right: Stop, Play and Record. There is an empty field two slots below each of the labels. When you click the empty field for each of the 4 columns you just set up, press the corresponding transport button on the KB37 and it will be learned by Sonar. Go to the Options tab and under the Buttons category, drop down the second field to choose a control label and the third field to choose the transport control. Uncheck the "Exclude this button from ACT" setting each time. Click in the Presets field to name your new preset then hit the save icon. This preset will be stored and available to use with the KB37. Control Garageband With KB37 In order to control the Transport functions in Garageband with the KB37 you will need to have version 2.0.1 of Garageband or later. The Garageband software cannot do this natively and so you will need to download add-on software that permits MIDI messages to control the play and stop buttons in Garageband. GarageRemote is one such software and is available here: http://www.muratnkonar.com/otherstuff/garageremote/ This software is from the company: murat n konar Once GarageRemote is installed and set up, start GarageRemote's Listener off by default) so that it can relay MIDI notifications to GarageBand. GarageBand responds to MIDI CC 007 and 010 for current track volume and pan, and these parameters can be assigned to the existing GarageBand MIDI preset of the Line 6 Audio-MIDI Devices settings. Setting Up The KB37 Transport With Cubase The KB37 has control wheels and buttons like many other Mackie or others transport cotrollers. You can get the two working together by simply going into: device setup, click on the + button, add MIDI MACHINE CONTROL SLAVE, and select the Line 6 Toneport KB37 from the menu on the right. In order to set the control on the KB37 itself you will need to go to: Line 6 Audio Midi Devices in your Control Panel and select the MIDI tab. Setting Up The KB37 To Control Reason First, ensure that you have downloaded and installed the latest version of Line 6 Monkey. Run it and verify that your TonePort KB37 is running the latest driver, firmware and flash memory. Download the latest version of GearBox application and install it to your computer. Launch the "Line 6 Audio-MIDI Devices" program from the Line 6/Tools folder. Next, make sure the KB37 is the active device. Select the MIDI tab and from the drop-down list of Controller Mapping applications, select Reason (version #). You are now ready to use the KB37's transport, Sound Select and 4 assignable real-time parameter controls with Reason. Keep in mind that you will be using the default parameter control settings. If you wish to customize those, click on the "Settings" button to access the Parameter Map screen. The drop-down list titled "MIDI CC/Action" is where you can modify which device parameters are to be controlled by the available controllers on the KB37. Keep in mind that each Reason Device has it's specific parameter CC# assignment. To access those values, refer to the "MIDI Implementation Chart" located in the Documentation folder within the Reason application folder on your computer's hard drive.

    GearBox: Model Pack FAQ

    The GearBox Gold Plug-In Bundle contains the same models that are found in Line 6's flagship product, the Vetta II, plus it adds the Bass Expansion model pack. In essence, the Gold Bundle includes every model that Line 6 offers. The Silver Bundle had the same standard set of amp models found in the GuitarPort and TonePort. Some of the models included with the PODxt family of devices are not found in the TonePort, GuitarPort or the Silver Bundle unit. As of August 1st, 2008, all TonePort DI-Silver Bundle devices receive a complimentary free update to Gold Bundle status. Below is a brief summary of how model pack combinations added to the GuitarPort, TonePort or Silver bundle devices compare to those devices that include more models: Power Pack models update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver/POD Studio model set to match the PODxt/PODxt Pro model set. Power Pack and the FX Junkie model packs update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the PODxt Live model set. Power Pack, plus the FX Junkie, Collector Classic, and Metal Shop (collectively known as the Triple Pack) model packs update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the Vetta II model set. Power Pack, the Triple Pack and the Bass Expansion models update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver/POD Studio model set to match the Gold Bundle model set. The model sets used with the GuitarPort, TonePort and PODxt family devices are not VST plug-in ready when purchased. The online purchase and activation of the POD Farm 2.5 plug-in is necessary to use them as plug-in effects in a DAW/recording program. Q: Can I put guitar model packs or licenses for POD Farm or Gearbox plug-ins onto a Bass PODxt? A: No, the Bass POD units cannot install additional model packs or licenses for those programs. Q: Can I purchase model packs and /or plug-ins without a credit card? A: Our accounting system is only set up to accept transactions with a credit card. This includes the prepaid type.
  5. English: The most common reason you would get no sound from your microphone is that you do not have the "Source Select" drop down menu set to Mic 1. This is located in the upper left hand corner of Gearbox (middle of the POD Farm application window, to the right of the "MUTE" button). If you own a TonePort UX1 and have selected Mic 1 and you still get no sound, your microphone may require Phantom Power. UX1's do not provide Phantom Power to the XLR port. Only UX2's, KB37's and UX8's have this feature. Français: La raison la plus commune pourquoi vous ne recevez aucun son de votre micro, est parce que vous n’avez pas sélectionné Mic 1 dans le menu « Source Select ». Ce menu est en supérieur gauche de votre logiciel Gearbox (en milieu de l’application POD Farm ç droite du bouton « MUTE »). Si vous avez un TonePort UX1 et vous avez sélecté Mic 1 mais vous n’avez aucun son, c’est possible que votre micro a besoin d’alimentation fantôme. L’UX1 n’as pas d’alimentation fantôme sur le connecteur XLR. L’UX2, KB37 et UX8 disposent de cette fonction. Deutsch: Der häufigste Grund, dass Sie keinen Ton vom Mikrofon bekommen ist, dass Sie im Source Select Menu nicht Mic 1 gewählt haben. Die Funktion können Sie oben rechts in Ihrer Gearbox Software finden (in der Mitte der POD Farm Software, rechts neben dem MUTE Knopf). Wenn Sie ein TonePort UX1 haben und Source Select auf Mic 1 steht aber Sie trotzdem keinen Ton bekommen, kann es auch sein dass Ihr Mikrofon eine Phantomspeisung benötigt. Das UX1 hat leider keine Phantomspeisung auf dem XLR Anschluss. Nur das UX2, KB37 und UX8 haben diese Funktion.

    Studio Modelers FAQ

    Q: Are the effects mono or stereo? A: The dry audio path and several effects are stereo, but many effects are mono - just like the original effects they were modeled after. Q: In which order should I connect multiple Studio Modelers? A: This is a matter of personal preference, but the general consensus is the Filter Pro first, then Mod Pro, with Echo Pro last. This configuration will allow you to use different Filter and Mod effects on different layers of a loop in the Echo Pro. Q: Can the Studio modelers perform spillover? A: To a certain extent you will be able to shift between programmed presets and maintain your signal. However there is a bit of time warp that is going to happen when switching between delays. It's kind of like changing the speeds on a multi-head delay unit. If you select a program from the delay select knob your signal will be interrupted. Q: Will the Studio Modelers respond to note division? A: Yes, all of the effects modelers have the ability to perform dotted and triplet quarter, eight and sixteenth notes. Q: Can I connect headphones to the studio modelers? A: It is possible to connect your headphones to the Studio Modelers 1/4 inch L/Stereo output. However, because this is a line level output intended for connection to an unbalanced input, there may not be enough volume level for a satisfying experience. We recommend using a mixer with a headphone amp for this type of application. Q: Can the studio modeler synch to a MIDI clock? A: Whether you are sync'd to MIDI clock or simply tapping in beats with the TAP button, a single press of the TAP button will set the running effect's "downbeat" (the time at which it starts moving). In other words, if you are using a tremolo effect and want to hear audio on the first beat, and nothing on the second beat, press the TAP button on the downbeat. Now, if you're locked to MIDI clock and want the computer to do it for you, simply send a single MIDI Continuous Controller #64 (Sustain Pedal) message to the Mod or Filter Pro on the downbeat and the units will start on their downbeat as well. Although the Studio Modelers will sync to external MIDI clock from your sequencer, drum machine, or what have you, as well as pass it along to other devices (providing the MIDI port is set to 'Thru'), they do not generate or transmit their own MIDI clock. Q: How can I control the Studio modelers? A: The Studio Modeler series are fully MIDI mappable and will accepts program change and continuous controller messages from any MIDI device. It is possible to connect and control a single or multiple Studio Modelers via MIDI. You can connect the MIDI Out of a POD, Flextone or other MIDI device to the MIDI In of the first Studio Modeler in the MIDI chain and control one or multiple units from the other MIDI device. The Line 6 EX-1 pedal will work with all of the Studio Modelers. allowing you to control your effects in real time. You can use this to morph from one set of parameters (toe-down) to another set (toe-up) within a given model.The expression pedal function can also be controlled on the Pro Modeler series by using a third party MIDI foot controller. You will need to program your expression pedal to send MIDI CC #4. Q: How do I synch to the bit rate in a recording program such as Protools? A: Bit depth and sample rate choice has to do with what your final media will be, i.e. CD, DVD, etc. Also, if you're working on a project with other people, it's good to have a game plan, for instance recording a project at 24 bit, 44.1khz, then dithering down to 16 bit for the final mix. Typically, this is a good way to go for CD projects (recording at 24 bit, 44.1khz) as you have a greater dynamic range for mixing with the 24 bits, and you don't have to do a sample rate conversion, as you already at 44.1 khz. If you choose a higher sample rate, try to choose a multiple of your final product, i.e. 88.2 khz for a 44.1 khz final product. Q: How can I go into bypass mode using MIDI? A: If you have setup a foot controller to send a bypass CC# or program change to the Studio Modeler, you will need to first engage the bypass by pressing on the footswitch once, and then dis-engage bypass by pressing the footswitch a second time. If you select a different program by using another footswitch, the Studio Modeler will also come out of bypass mode. You can also program and save a preset with your mix level set to 0%. Use this program as your bypass and then you will be able to access bypass and then proceed to another program without having to do a little dance on your foot controller. Q: Can I use a Line 6 FBV or floorboard to control the Studio Modelers? A: The Line 6 FBV or Floorboard will not work with the Echo Pro. However you can take advantage of the numerous MIDI mapping capabilities of the Studio Modelers used in conjunction with a third party MIDI foot controller. This would allow you to control program change, continuous controller parameter functions, tap tempo, and loop / sampler functions from your foot controller. Q: What are the dimensions of the Studio Modeler unit? A: Width: 19", Depth: 5.75", Height: 1.75", Weight: 6.2lb.
  7. Once you've installed the latest drivers for your Line 6 USB device on your computer's operating system, connect audio monitors/speakers to the audio outputs of your Line 6 USB device or use the headphone output jack. The built-in soundcard output of your computer will not output processed amp/effect tones from GearBox/POD Farm/DAW software. Also, connecting the audio output from your POD Studio/TonePort/POD interface into the audio input of your default soundcard will result in you hearing latency (short echo/delay). Please connect your computer speakers or headphonesdirectly to the output of the POD Studio/TonePort/POD interface device and not your original computer's soundcard output.
