No Pod farm 2 licence found
by Pobinr on 2012-03-17 17:58:17.9850

I've had a UX2 for 4 years.
For some reason Pod Farm 2.5 seems to have downloaded & installed itself !

So now when starting up UX2 software I now get this message; 'No pod farm 2 licence found'

So now the model packs that I've been using for a year or two won't load when I call up a tone that requires one of the models.
Instead I get this message;  Failed to load tone Code 8000a200

Why is it suddenly necessary for me to buy a Pod farm 2 license?

Line 6 have to be kidding surely.

I've already paid once for my model packs!

I ran licence manager & makes no difference.
It just says model packs, UX2 & PC are authoirised

Any answers appreciated

hello robin

you downloaded Podfarm 2.5 on 2011/12/29 12:44:03 PM...  it does not download and 'install itself all alone' into your system

please use Line6 Uninstaller to remove all Line6 software and drivers, then download and reinstall Podfarm 1.12

remember to run Monkey after that to update the drivers, before running License Manager and Podfarm 1.12

Hi Antonio

Much appreciate your reply.

It's strange becuase I don't recall installing 2.5. Anyway some how it got installed.

I just discovered if I open the pod farm software by clicking on a shortcut on my desktop it opens 1.12.
It only opens 2.0 if I open from programme list.

What are the advantages of 2.0 ?

What would I need to do to make my model packs work with it ?

hello Robin

Podfarm 2.5 is not free software, it requires the purchase of a License: if you wish purchasing a License, you may do so in

the main advantages compared to the free software Podfarm 1.12 are that you may change at will the order of the FX in the chain, and it can be controlled externally using one of the FBV MkII footcontrollers:

more info in POD Farm 2.5 Basic User Guide (Rev C) - English :

of course, once activated your Packs would be also available in it; please note, Podfarm 2.5 is not an update of Podfarm 1.12, both can coexist in the same PC

if you do not wish upgrading, please follow the directions in my previous post

Thanks for your reply. I won't be paying $99 just to be able to change the order of the FX chains & I don't use a pedal. I think 2.5's too dear.

i just bought a mac. have downloaded pod 1.12 onto it, but my machine isn't seeing my ux2. it's as if it's not there even though it's plugged in & lights on on panel!

Message on Pod farm consol says 'No authorised device connected. Cannot process audio'

Doesn't show in preferences either for me to select the UX2 as an external sound card.

I'm suspecting drivers not loaded, but I've opened the packege & installed the drivers just in case they didn't load with the main pod farm install.

Any thoughts ?

i'd contact support directly:">">

the only thing i'd recommend might be downloading the driver package seperately...

but i got rid of all my macs because of headaches like this... so sorry i don't have any other ideas.">">
