Gearbox Is Dead, What A Shame.

Recommended Posts

I have the x3 live too. I can't believe it. Anywhere i can find gearbox???

 

This is the link to the Gearbox download. I have it installed on a Win 10 laptop and it still works for me. I see they state, "OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8" but it works for me on Win 10.

This version of GearBox includes drivers which support Windows 7.

 

This single installer includes a complete software package for GuitarPort, TonePort, PODxt and POD X3 devices. It includes the GearBox application (v3.72), device drivers (v4.0.2.3) for all supported devices, the Line 6 Monkey intelligent updater (v1.33) and Control Panel (v3.41).

 

See the GearBox manuals page for step-by-step installation instructions and detailed setup info for use with many recording applications. Full release notes are available here.

 

For owners of eligible Line 6 hardware (other than TonePort DI Silver or Gold Plug-in Bundle or TonePort UX8) plug-in processing requires the purchase and activation of a license from the Line 6 Online Store.

Dude, I really hate to tell you this but a new version of Gearbox probably will never happen. The best to hope for would be a work around from our talent pool here.

Thank you Bill. I will hope for our talented guys. Maybe they will come up with something interesting and I will be able to install Gear Box on my OS Sierra system.

Hi Folks,

 

Just got an X3 Live after selling mine to move out of state, years ago. So there is no way beyond GearBox to load CustomTone downloads to an X3?

its available and its fine for most users....

it just simply wont be updated any more...

not going away... just at the is what it is point in its life....

its never been renamed or anything like what you suggest... there are just other programs available.

 

Sorry for bringing up an old post, but I just ran into the Gear Box issue not quite working correctly.  Relative to this post from TheRealZap, you say, "there are just other programs."  What other programs are you talking about relative to X3 patch editing and X3 tone management?

You can use Pod Farm for free > This should be the download link > http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=3143

 

You can use Pod Farm 2, I'm not sure if it's free though but you can try > this should be the download link > http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=6479

 

I'm using Pod Farm 2 but it came with a KB37 Studio when I bought it new. I'm pretty sure it worked with my X3 Pro too and I'm using Win 10.

 

I have to add that it should be easier to just plug in your device USB, open Line 6 Monkey, let monkey update first and then check for updates for your device.

Apologies for dragging up an old post.  After several years of not playing, I agreed to help a band add to their sound and dug out my POD X3 live.

 

Being time constrained, I find that optimising tones manually is too time consuming.  But in the back of my mind, I knew that downloading a CustomTone -- USB lead --- click ---> job done was possible.

 

Now I find "Gearbox is Dead" and doesn't like my Mac OS, unless I backtrack drivers and OSX.

 

So... my question is... are there any other editors available which I can use to add CustomTone downloads to my POD X3 Live?

 

Thank you all very much in advance.
