Where to purchase a Cable for UX1 (USB C)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been trying to track down a quality cable that will power my UX1 from a USB C port, but it's proving difficult to find. Does anyone know where I could purchase one?

There are lot's on ebay. Or type in custom pc cables in to Google and find your nearest guy.

Thanks. I have purchased two already from ebay, and neither of them have powered it up. One powered the light green for a moment, and then it went red. Can you recommend a quality brand? I'm surprised that Line6 don't sell cables as accessories.

It's just a regular USB 2.0 cable - nothing special about it. If you've tried multiple cables with no luck, I'd suspect something might be wrong with the USB jack.

The two I have tried so far I think have been cheap Chinese junk. I'm going from a macbook pro with the regular usb outputs to a 2019 macbook pro with USB C outputs. It's unlikely that all four ports are defective. There's no problem powering up external drives from them. I'm sure a better quality cable will power up the UX1.

There mustbe a local business near you that can do it. Or an online cable shop. That's what i would try.

Last resort, a connector that changes the type on your old working cable

I'm thinking it's more likely that the USB port on the UX1 is damaged, not the USB ports on your Macbook.

I think none of them are damaged. The UX1 fires up no probs on my old macbook with the older USB ports, so I'm pretty sure it will fire up when I get hold of a decent quality cable. I've found a belkin cable on the net that should be of higher quality than the two I have tried so far, so fingers crossed.

I'm on the edge of the outback, so the nearest decent shop is 200 k's away. Last time I was in town I couldn't find one, so I'll have to let my fingers do the walking.

I tried the adapter route with the original cable, but Line6 state that it needs to be a direct cable and won't work going through an adapter, which rang true when I tried it.
