Line 6 guitarport

Considering buying one for playing around at home (I mean, they are $99...that's pretty cheap), but I have a question for anyone that owns one or knows about them:

Is it possible to record with it on other software outside of what their site specifies? Like if I have a friend with an mbox and protools, could I use the line out on the guitarport directly into the mbox and still achieve the same sounds?

It would be a better recording device if you get the Guitarport Rifftracker, but those are slightly more expensive than the Guitarport.

Re: Line 6 guitarport

i have the riff tracker, it is a cool tool . It only sounds as good as the speakers your using, i have some nicer computer speakers but they are a big factor in how you sound. As for the recording software that is included with the riff tracker, it is limited very limited, all you can really do is record, there isn't any editing ablities at all. So you have to do 1 of 2 things. Do the song in one take or peice by peice and then peice it bacl together in a different program.

One good thing though, you can use outside programs to record the guitar port with. You dont have to use the riff tracker software.

So my advice is get the guitar port, and simple recording program. I got magix and it is sort of hard to use, it has way tooo many options, and exter crap, i like to try to keep things easy and simple.

Again you may invest in some high quality headphones or cheaper passive studio monitors. Even if you do have to buy a few exter things, using the GP to record is still one of your cheaper high quality options.

I would be more than happy to send you some clips that i have done using the riff tracker software and guitar port. just PM me with your e-mail.

You can download Audacity recording/wave editing software for free. After installation, GuitarPort appears as one of the input options for Audacity. You select GuitarPort for input, choose the recording resolution, set the levels using the record monitor, press the record button, and that's about it. This has gotta be one of the simplest and cheapest recording setups around. Yet with all the models and effects available in GP, it's pretty powerful.
Have fun,

You can record to anything with it. A guitar port sound device is installed, asio and wdm. just select it from your program as the record source. I've used Logic Audio Platinum 5 (PC) and Cool Edit 2.0 (also PC).
