I bought my X3 Live from a friend, but it has no ilok with it. I want to use POD Farm 2 as a stand alone, and or use as VST with my DAW (Reaper.) What do I need to do. Thanks!!

BTW...My computer and X3-Live is registered and Authorized. Is it as simple as purchasing POD Farm 2...or do I need to purchase an iLOK?

i-Lok does not work with the X3.

But the X3 does include a POD Farm 1.12 plug-in licenses.

The Hardware Independent version of POD Farm 2 is a separate license.

 

I would recommend sending the wet and dry to your DAW simultaneous while you monitor the wet and then and the PF 1,12 plug-in to the dry track post processing.

After you are familiar with the workflow, then you can look into PF2 to see what else you would gain.

But sonically they are the same, there is more signal chain flexibility with PF2.

If you purchase a POD Farm 2 license, you would need the platinum to have access to all the models you currently have in the X3.

Best not to get i-Lok, it is the plug-in only version with no refund policy.

The Hardware Independent version works with most ASIO USB Audio Interfaces and has a 30 day money back guarantee.

But trying to use a Stanalone PF2 version with the X3 as an interface IMHO is cumbersome and redundant, plus no versions of POD Farm can be used as a GUI with the X3.

POD Farm 1.12 is free, it's license is tied to the X3.

You may need to run the License Manager.

Download the newest Monkey to get everything up to date, the License Manger is bundled with the Monkey.
