|A nifty piece of gear As a guitar player who has wanted the tools to record and expand upon whimsical ideas without breaking the budget. Great product, but some software issues. I recieved the product this afternoon, and expected a simple plug in, and install of the software.|

|Excellent!!! This is an EXCELLENT wireless system. What really made the system give me the "wow" factor, was the battery reading. Modified with External Antenna I have bought this device a year ago and I was very satisfied about the sound.|

GEARBOX SETTINGS AND RECORDING
Once you are set up for recording with your Line 6 device, then you probably will want to think about what to record! GearBox is all about tones, and this is where you go to set up your mic, guitar or bass tones that will be recorded into your audio software. For all TonePort, GuitarPort and PODxt devices, you can simply just access the Tone Menu at the top of GearBox and choose any of the Preset Tones and then tweak them to your taste. TonePort devices also offer a few more options since they offer more input choices and the ability to process two tones at one time.
Choosing your GearBox Source for TonePort
Once you have your mic, instrument or line level item(s) plugged into TonePort, click on the Source Select to choose which of these sources you want to create a tone for.
TonePort UX1/UX2/KB37 Source Menu
Options within this menu provide the ability to create a tone for the Mic, Analog and Guitar/Bass inputs separately, as well as the ability to choose a Stereo or Dual-Tone source.
TonePort UX1 Source Select menu shown here Stereo sources include Stereo in the name, and Dual-Tone sources include the & symbol in their names
Note: TonePort DI, PODxt and GuitarPort only have one physical input and therefore the source select display will not present in GearBox
Choosing Tones in GearBox with TonePort
Since there are different types of Input Sources, to follow are a few guidelines for setting up your tones for these types of Sources.
Single Input Source
When a single Input Source is selected, the GearBox displays the last tone preset that was in use for this Source. You can of course choose any preset from the Tone menu, or customize the tone by selecting your desired amp, preamp and effects models.
Stereo Input Source
A Stereo source accepts the inputs from the selected Stereo TonePort ins and processes them as one Stereo signal. This means that you still choose and edit one tone setting, just as you do for a single source, but the tone is applied to both channels, providing a stereo output.
Dual-Tone Input Source
If you select one of the Dual-Tone sources, then you are able to choose a tone independently for each. For example, if you want to record a performance using an instrument and a mic that are plugged into TonePorts Guitar/Bass and Mic inputs, you likely want to use separate Guitar Amp and Mic Preamp tones. To edit the separate tone settings, use two buttons that appear at the left of the Tones menu both tones remain audible regardless which tone is displayed: Two tone buttons appear when a DualTone Input Source is in use.
Note: TonePortDI, PODxt and GuitarPort only have one physical input and therefore can only operate in Single Tone mode.
TonePort Record Send 3-4
If you are using GearBox with a TonePort or GuitarPort device, then you can access a set of controls for Send 3-4 by clicking on the Send 3-4 icon in the row above the effects panel display. When GearBox is set to a single input Source (such as Instrument) you can set your recording software to receive the Send 3-4 signal, while you are monitoring the Send 1-2 signal. In this
configuration, it allows you to record a dry, unprocessed signal while monitoring a fully-GearBox processed tone.
This set of Send 3-4 controls are independent of the Send 1-2 controls. Note that by default the Send 3-4 Mute button is engaged you probably want this Muted when using TonePort in a single input source configuration, since Send 3-4 then carries the tone without the Post effects and you likely want to hear the only the Send 1-2 signal with the post effects on it. Send 3-4 is also very useful when you are using a Dual-Tone Input Source in GearBox, since each Tone is routed to a separate Record Send Tone 1 goes to Send 1-2, and Tone 2 to Send 34. This then allows your recording software to access these two Tones as separate, discrete signals and record those on separate tracks within the same recording take.
Connecting the S/PDIF Digital Output from TonePort UX2/GearBox to an external digital device
TonePort UX2 and PODxt Pro devices also include a S/PDIF digital output, which allows you to connect to digital devices such as a DAT recorder, Minidisk, another sound card, or most any device that offers a S/PDIF format digital input. PODxt Pro also includes an AES/EBU digital out, which can be used to connect to hardware that offers this type of digital input as well. Connecting digitally is the preferred method to connect to external devices since it does not require the added digital-to-analog-to-digital signal conversion process as required with using analog outs. Digital clock settings - When connecting to a digital device in this manner, one device needs to sync to the digital clock of the other, and preferably both should also operate at the same sample rate. To configure this correctly, youll need to look for a clock setting on the digital device you are connecting to and set it to External or S/PDIF so that it follows the digital clock of your TonePort rather than its own internal clock. If you are connecting to the S/PDIF input of another sound card, this can be either a hardware switch on the unit, or an option found in the software control panel for the device. As an example, when connecting TonePort UX2 digitally to a Digidesign Mbox for recording in Pro Tools LE, you access the Mbox clock settings within the Pro Tools Hardware Setup dialog:
Setting the Digidesign Mbox to follow the TonePort S/PDIF clock and receive S/PDIF digital input for recording
Sample rate - Since TonePort UX2 is acting as the master clock device in this scenario, you should also manually set the desired sample rate for TonePort, so that the sample rate matches the one set on the external device. This is done in the Format options within the Audio MIDI Setup dialog. You will want to choose 44100 Hz or 48000 Hz.
Next click the Output Config button in the Preferences dialog to similarly activate the multiple outputs
Click on all non-active output devices to make them available as playback outputs in Live*
Click OK when done
Note - The Ableton Live Lite 5 version has a restriction that allows only one stereo output to be used at a time. To be able to choose two or more different output devices in a Live Set, you must switch into Demo mode, or upgrade to a full version of Ableton Live.
You can now continue to use Ableton Live and all inputs and outputs will appear within the audio track menus, just as if all exist on one sound card!
All inputs appear in the Live audio track input menu
For more information regarding the Aggregate Device feature, check your Mac OS X documentation.
USING THE GEARBOX PLUG-IN
Using the GearBox plug-in with your favorite recording software gives you the freedom to change your tone as often as needed and automate amp and effects settings with surgical precision. If you have experience with host applications like Cubase, Live, or SONAR, then you probably have used plug-ins. Using the GearBox AU or VST in your host is no different from using any other. If youre new to the world of recording software and plug-ins, read the following examples of using GearBox plug-in in Live.

These are alternative driver types that can be used, but it is recommended to select the ASIO TonePort driver for the best performance.
You should now see your Line 6 hardware listed as the Audio Out device at the top left of Reasons display
To jam along with Reason You can also of course still use GearBox for your Mic and Instrument tones while Reason is playing back if you want to sing or jam along. Just plug in your Mic or Instrument and use GearBox just as you normally do. Note that you can use the Monitor knob to adjust the level of your Mic or Instrument independently of the level of the Reason playback. Use the GearBox Monitor knob to adjust your Mic and Instrument volume level
To control the playback level of Reason, use the Mixer controls in the Reason software
Use the Reason Mixers Master slider for overall control of Reasons playback level.
With this configuration, both the Reason project playback, and your Mic/Instrument GearBox tones are heard through your speakers, and sent to all your devices outputs. This allows you to connect any of the outputs to any external device, such as a tape recorder, mixer, P.A. system, etc. to record or amplify this stereo output signal!
The Propellerhead ReWire technology allows the Reason modules outputs to be directly routed into any ReWire Host application. Using ReWire, the Host application can send MIDI tracks to Reasons synth. modules, and Reason then sends audio playback directly into the ReWire Host, which is mixed with the audio of the Host application. When Reason is configured as a ReWire Slave in this manner, it is controlled by the Host application and does not utilize a sound card connection itself. Therefore, if you want to use your Line 6 hardware as the sound card device in a ReWire setup like this, it is necessary for you to choose it as the audio device for the ReWire Host application. Using Reason 3 with Ableton Live Lite 5 as a ReWire Host The included Ableton Live Lite 5 software is capable of functioning as a ReWire Host application. The following steps show you how to set your Line 6 hardware as the audio device for the Ableton Live Lite 5 software, and then configure Live to connect with Reason as a ReWire Slave device. This allows you to do audio recording and playback with Ableton Live, allowing Reasons output to be automatically played in sync and channeled through Lives audio tracks via ReWire.
You first want to be sure to exit Reason if it is currently running. The ReWire Host application must be launched first. Launch Ableton Live Lite 5 and make the following settings to set your hardware as the Live audio device
Select the Live Options menu and choose Preferences
Choose ASIO as the Driver Type
Select your Line 6 hardware
Now that Ableton Live Lite 5 is configured to use your hardware, launch Reason 3. Reason will automatically set itself to ReWire Slave Mode. You can check this mode in the Reason Hardware Interface modules Audio Out section. Reason 3 detects when an available ReWire Master is running and sets itself to Slave mode
Now just hit the Play button in either Live or Reason, and both projects will play in sync, with all the audio being routed into Ableton Live Lite 4 and played through your Line 6 hardware!
You can utilize GearBox and your Line 6 hardware to also plug in a Mic or Instrument, dial in your tone, and record audio tracks right into the Ableton Live Lite 5 Set. It is important to note, however, that running all these programs at one time can require some hefty usage of your computers processor, RAM and disk access, especially as you add more tracks, synth modules and real-time effects. Your actual performance will depend on the specifications of your computer.
Configuring Cubase SE/SX/SL 3 to use ASIO Line 6 Inputs and Outputs
Proceed with the following steps to establish TonePorts Sends as Inputs for Cubase

Uninstalling GearBox 3 and driver software
On Windows To uninstall the GearBox application, use the Windows Add/Remove Programs Control Panel available from the Start menu and select GearBox for removal. Or use the Remove GearBox in the GearBox directory which, by default, is installed at /Program Files/Line6/GearBox. The TonePort, GuitarPort and PODxt drivers each have their own uninstaller within the Windows Add/Remove Programs Control Panel. Please note that the new Line 6 Audio-MIDI Control Panel replaces the functionality of previous devicespecific Control Panels. It is not uninstalled by GearBox or Driver Uninstallers.
On Mac To uninstall the GearBox application, simply move GearBox from the /Applications/Line6 folder into the Trash on your Desktop. An uninstaller for the Line 6 Audio-MIDI Driver software is available from the GearBox 3 installer as well. During your GearBox 3 installation, use the Customize button available from the installer's Installation Type step to choose to install the uninstaller at /Applications/Line6/Drivers. This utility will uninstall the universal driver that is used for TonePort, GuitarPort and PODxt family devices.
Line 6 Edit, Custom Tone and GearBox 3 Compatibility Line 6 Edit 3.0 does not support the TonePort hardware as a connected device. However, Tones created and saved in GearBox 3 can be typically opened in Line 6 Edit 3.0. Depending on which Line 6 hardware you are using with Line 6 Edit, some models may be translated upon loading a GearBox Tone. You can also submit GearBox-created Tones to the Custom Tone Online Library if you first load them into Line 6 Edit 3.0, and then use the Submit function from the Edit window. GearBox 3 includes access to an integrated Tone Library, which offers free download of GuitarPort Online Tones. These Tones will work with all GearBox 3 supported hardware. You can also visit the www.customtone.com site, either from within Line 6 Edit 3.0s integrated browser, or by using your computers Browser software, and download Tones that are compatible with several Line 6 devices. Note that some Tones from the CustomTone site may be translated, or may not open within the GearBox 3 software, since they may depend upon your connected hardware to also support all the models used in the Tone.

Known Issues & Incompatibilities
GuitarPort and PODxt Plug-In owners get Silver Model set
Run Monkey and Refresh your GearBox Plug-In activation to get the Silver Model set If you purchased and activated the GearBox Plug-In Add-On for GuitarPort or PODxt before upgrading to GearBox 3.1, youll need to refresh your activation to get the 6 Preamp and 5 Bass Amp/Cab Models that are now included with Plug-In Add-On purchase: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Launch Monkey Select the Optional Add-Ons tab Select GearBox Plug-In and click Activate Purchase In the Purchase Activation pop-up window, type: refresh Click Activate!
No USB hub support Line 6 recommends that you connect your Line 6 device to a built-in USB port on your computer and not into a USB hub. USB hubs are known to sometimes exhibit communication errors with USB audio devices. Due to the fact that some computers, laptops in particular, have limited numbers of USB ports, it may be difficult to find an available port for Line 6 hardware to operate simultaneously with other required USB devices like dongles and other audio interfaces.
Firmware & Driver Requirements As mentioned in the System Requirements section above, some PODxt devices require that you update them to firmware version 3 (or later) before you can use them with GearBox 3. GearBox 3 also requires the version 3 (or later) device drivers for all supported Line 6 hardware. The GearBox 3 application installer will also install the necessary drivers for all supported devices by default. You can also use Line 6 Monkey to download and apply the recommended drivers and updates for your Line 6 device.
GearBox control Mute Line Out not available for TonePort D.I. Mute Line Out is a GearBox software feature available to most Line 6 devices, but is not available for the TonePort DI. Mute Line Out is intended to facilitate vocal recording, in which it is common to frequently mute the monitors during a microphone recording pass.
Mod FX and Delay FX tempo changes via Tap do not change host automation track Within the GearBox Plug-In, changing the Mod FX or Delay FX speed via the Tap button or by click-dragging the numeric tempo field does not affect this automated parameter within the host application. However, you can control this parameter using the automatable control from within the host.
GearBox CPU Usage and Recording The heavier the GearBox tone-load, (e.g. lots of effects enabled, stereo mode, TonePorts Dual-Tone mode), the heavier GearBox's load on the CPU. Increase the buffer size in recording host applications to manage heavier loads, use ToneDirect low-latency monitoring to avoid the latency incurred at higher buffer settings.
System Power Up Line 6 recommends that users' monitor speaker setup not be powered on or turned up until after the CPU is booted and the Line 6 USB audio device is connected. 5 of 9
GearBox Plug-In loads the factory default tone when models are unavailable GearBox amp and effects models are linked with Line 6 hardware. If a project is saved using Line 6 hardware keyed to certain models, then opened later using Line 6 hardware in which those models are unavailable, GearBoxs default preset will load instead.
Some Patches Appear Modified When Loaded Some preset tones may appear modified (tone name is italicized) when first loaded. All Bass presets except Basic Bass Tone exhibit this behavior.
Reason Using TonePort KB37 with Reason The Reason MIDI preset (found in the MIDI Settings page of the Line 6 Audio-MIDI Devices console) works only with Reason 3.0.4 or higher. This preset works in conjunction with a Remote codec to provide highly integrated control of the Reason. The Remote codec for KB37 is installed with GearBox 3.0. To use the KB37 with Reason, open the Control Surfaces and Keyboards page in Reasons Preferences dialog, click Add, then select Line 6 from the Manufacturer list. IMPORTANT: Earlier versions of Reason do not support the Remote codec, so be sure to install the latest available update (see http://www.propellerheads.se).

General Windows x64 Compatibility GearBox 3 is not compatible with Windows x64 (64 bit) systems.
SONAR SONAR may stop processing audio at some buffer settings in Kernel Streaming mode With SONAR 5.2, 6.x set to Kernel Streaming mode, and its buffer size is set to the lowest settings (10ms or 20 ms), while the Line 6 PPU slider is set to the highest settings, SONAR may stop processing audio, causing the transport not to move and input monitoring to stop. Workaround: Move the PPU slider down or SONAR's buffer size up.
Windows Vista Note about Windows Vista support GearBox 3.1 will install and run on Windows Vista, 32 bit versions only. There is no plan for 64 bit operation at this time. Note that Line 6 cannot officially support Windows Vista at this time due to the varying states of Vistareadiness among other manufactures host applications and hardware compatibility.
Vista Beta Forum Line 6 hosts a GearBox Vista public beta forum at http://line6.com/support/forum.jspa?forumID=31. Log in to read and swap tricks and tips for making GearBox work under Vista.
Connecting USB Hardware to Different USB Ports Causes Some GearBox Features to Stop Working On Windows Vista, once you've installed driver software for your Line 6 device and connected it to your computer via USB, you should always connect it to that same USB port in the future. If you connect it to a different port, Vista will treat it as a different device, and as this will prevent Line 6 software from recognizing it for audio playback purposes (for example, GearBox's Track Player and Metronome may not work). You can fix this problem by disconnecting your Line 6 USB hardware, reinstalling your driver software using Line 6 Monkey, reconnecting your Line 6 USB hardware when Monkey instructs you, and then only connecting to that same USB port in the future.
WDM apps don't play when ASIO sample rate doesn't match Windows defaults On Windows Vista, if the ASIO driver is open and running at a sample rate or bit depth that is different from the "Default Format" set in the Sounds Control Panel, WDM applications including the GearBox player and metronome will not play. Workaround: Change the ASIO sample rate or bit depth to match that of Vistas Default Format or change Vistas default format to match the desired ASIO settings.
Out to hardware knob does not change monitoring level After adjusting the Out to hardware knob in GearBox, pressing play/stop in the player or start/stop in the metronome causes the knob to return to 100%. The volume is not effected, just the position of the knob. Additionally, adjusting the GearBox slider in the Windows Volume Mixer causes the knob to jump to 100%. Workaround: Use the hardware volume knob on your device to set your monitoring level.

Line 6 audio device sample rate can not be changed in the Sound Control Panel, after entering the "Record" tab of the control panel Workaround: Reopening the Sound control panel and changing the sample rate will work, as long as the Recording tab is not clicked.
WDM inputs are not available when default format is not set to 16 bit/44.1 kHz When setting the Windows default format to anything other than 16 bit/44.1 kHz, WDM audio inputs will not be available. Note that ASIO inputs work correctly.
General Mac OS X Aggregate Devices Feature When creating aggregations of more than one Line 6 USB device, we recommend that project sample rate in recording applications not be changed on-the-fly. Aggregations using Line 6 USB I/O hardware and third-party rd USB I/O hardware are still being evaluated, and performance may differ on different systems and with different 3 party hardware.
Cubase Sample Rate support for Line 6 devices is limited to 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz on Cubase SE/SL/SX 3.x for Mac An issue has been discovered that appears to be unique to only Cubase SE/SL/SX and Nuendo 3.x Mac versions when using Line 6 PODxt or GuitarPort devices (driver version 3.0). When accessing these devices for recording or playback, sample rate support is limited to only 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz, and selecting other sample rates may cause the Steinberg applications record and playback operations to behave incorrectly.
Digital Performer Writing automation from the GearBox Plug-In interface does not work Digital Performer does not receive automation events from the GearBox Plug-In. However, the GearBox Plug-In interface does respond to automation from Digital Performer.
Live Playing automation in Ableton Live may cause interface to become sluggish or freeze When playing a track that includes GearBox Plug-In automation, while the plug-in window is open, Live's interface may freeze and become unusable. Workaround: Close the GearBox Plug-In window during playback.
Logic When recording automation from the GearBox Plug-In window, resulting automation data may contain jumps You may not be able to record smooth parameter changes when recording automation from the GearBox interface.
Pro Tools HD/LE 8 of 9
Control Surfaces GearBox Plug-In can be controlled from some control surface setups, but does not provide easily readable parameter names for LCD displays, and does not support all control surface possibilities.
GearBox RTAS with Pro Tools set to certain buffer settings may result in garbled audio Audio processed through the GearBox Plug-In may be garbled when using hardware buffer sizes below 512 samples at 96 kHz. Workaround: A buffer size of 512 samples or greater fixes this problem.
GearBox RTAS EQ knobs may stutter when automation is enabled While adjusting the EQ levels in the GearBox Plug-In, the EQ graphics may stutter during mouse movements if those parameters are set up for automation within Pro Tools. Note that the interface does not stutter when playing back automation.
RTAS multi-mono mode not supported GearBox Plug-In will not operate properly in RTAS multi-mono mode.
Pro Tools Save Session Copy In does not preserve GearBox RTAS plug-in settings The Save Session Copy In function does not save GearBox Plug-In current settings. Workaround: After using Save Session Copy In, also Save As to that same destination so your copied Session has the parameter values for GearBox Plug-In instances in your Session.
Changes made to the GearBox Plug-In don't trigger Pro Tools to warn user to save changes before closing Pro Tools session Adjustments made to GearBox Plug-In instances may not trigger Pro Tools to recognize that you have changed your Pro Tools Session, and may not prompt you to save changes when closing your Pro Tools Session if you havent made other changes since saving. Manually saving a Session file before closing will ensure that the adjustments youve made to the GearBox Plug-In get saved with the Session.
Pro Tools delay compensation does not fully account for GearBox Plug-In latency GearBox-processed audio may be delayed by up to approximately 3 ms in Pro Tools using sample rates of 96 kHz. While GearBox reports plug-in buffering latency to the Pro Tools mixer, not all aspects of latency are reported, as latency can change based on what models are in use at the moment. Workaround: Using Pro Tools HD ADC (Automatic Delay Compensation) can improve the delay. Optionally, you can nudge your GearBox-processed audio tracks a number of samples to account for the additional latency.
No graphic indication of Pro Tools automation states in GearBox Plug-In Many RTAS plug-ins indicate that parameters are armed for automation by altering the corresponding knob's color or drawing a square around the armed element. The GearBox RTAS Plug-In does not provide this feature.
GearBox Plug-In CAB/ER FX mic parameter may jump on mouse click The microphone control may jump varying amounts when you begin a click-drag gesture, depending on where, relative to the mic, you click the mouse. Workaround: Click directly on the mic to ensure smooth parameter changes.
