Use Pod farm without Toneport?

Recommended Posts

I've never used my Toneport as an interface, just for monitoring as I record guitars.

 

I want to give my Toneport UX2 to a friend who sings, and since the interface I just bought came with Cubase LE (I already have Pro), I can give him  my Toneport and Cubase licence and he can record.

 

Will the Toneport work as a stand alone interface like this? Or does it need my Pod Farm licence to run it?

 

Also, Can I continue to use Pod Farm as a VST without the Toneport?

The Tonepoort had a hardware enabled license tied to it. So your friend will just need to download PF

No, not unless you purchase a hardware independent license. 

 

BTW, do you have PF or PF 2?

Thanks for the reply.

 

I have PF2 + triple pack. Actually, it is all working fine as a VST in Cubase without the toneport plugged in. I have a Steinberg UR44C now and actually when I loaded PF standalone, it asked me which interface I want to use, so I selected the UR44 and it just ran thru that, albeit with such latency that it's unusable.

 

If he buys a copy of PF can he register that with my old toneport, or is it just better he buys a new interface? It'd be a shame to have to throw away a perfectly good Toneport.

He does not need to purchase PF, the Toneport has a free hardware enabled license.

 

Did you at some point pay for PF2?

I just checked, yes I paid $119 in August 2017 for PF 2.5

I bought & registered my Toneport in December 2008.

 

I'm guessing the licence it must have come with was PF1? Can he still download & use that?

Yes, he can download PF and it will work as long as the UX is connected. It might even work with PF2 but I'm not sure.

 

You are still able to use the plug-in because you purchased the upgrade.

Thanks Triryche.

What I didn't want is if he goes and registers it to his computer and then my PF stops working whilst I'm in the middle of a project.
I guess I'll make sure I'm home when he installs it.  Cheers.
