Sonic Port Replacement Cables?

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded to an iPad Air and realized I have no idea where my lightning cable for the SOnic Port is.  I looked at potentially just getting a 30 pin to Lightning adapter, but looks like I wont be able to get the same audio quality as I would with the Line 6 lghtning cable that came with the product.


Ive been scouring the internet with no luck, anyone know where I can purchase a replacement lightning cable for the SOnic Port???

Hey there,


   If your sonic port is still under warranty you can contact customer support to issue a support ticket for a possible replacement. If not you can order either the 30-pin or lightning cable from Full Compass. The lightning cable isn't showing up on the web site due to it not being in stock at the moment, but please feel free to give them a call. I'll be attaching Full Compass' link and the part number for the Lightning cable.


Part# 21-34-0240

Looks like the Line 6 Mobile Keys keyboards use the same cable as the Sonic Port. Lucky for me, I have a Mobile Keys 49 and was able to use it for my Sonic Port.


I got this reply from Greg Hionis at Full Compass regarding lightning-connector Sonic Port replacement cables:


 This part number is available to order from us. however line 6 is trying to get a lot of money for this cable and it would take around 3 weeks to get to you here in the states..

If you would like to place an order, please have the part number ready and give our sales team

And this reply about 30-pin cables (i.e. iphone 4 & earlier):

Hi, I'm in UK and need a connector for my SonicPort VX to my older iPad with 30-pin connector port.


I've followed the links in this thread but all the retailers are in U.S. and shining makes an already costly connector lead pretty stupid price (more than a third of what I paid for the device itself).


Line 6 - does your UK operation carry these and if so can you give me the exact contact details so I can order?


Thanks / Bob W, London

As many others I am searching for a solution to connect my smaller Sonic Port (without VX) to a desktop PC or MAC, to use it as an regular audio-interface.


Here are two other threads, where the the basic possibility are declared…


Unfortunately no one has postet a self-testet adapter or cable to…

  1. either connect the existing 30 pin male to a solution providing 30 pin female > Standard USB A
  2. or connect the existing Lightning male to a solution providing Lightning female > Standard USB A


And if someone could specify the type of USB-port at the device itself, maybe no adapter would be needed because in this case it would be possible to use a solution like

  • "strange USB-port of the Sonic Port" > Standard USB A


But obviously the easiest way would be, if Line6 or another service would offer the standard USB A-cable for the desktop-connection from the bigger Sonic Port VX as a replacement or addition  :ph34r:

I have had a number of these cables-pretty disappointed that Line 6 used such a proprietary and expensive standard instead of one of the standard cable styles but I do love the device and the Mobile Pod app. Today I ordered a replacement on Adorama for $30 and I want to share a great option, Adorama offers device protection plan with free replacement for 2 years for $8. This is well worth it if you burn through the flimsy Line 6 cable every year as I do!
