Tone
Line 6 tone has been used on countless hit recordings and by hundreds of thousands of guitarists the world over. Now GuitarPort brings this world-class tone from the greatest studios to your desktop.

Tracks
There's more to GuitarPort than just great tone. GuitarPort's built-in audio player lets you jam along with CDs and MP3s, but that's just the beginning. The optional GuitarPort Online service brings you hundreds of killer tracks recorded in the world's top studios, and not just with anonymous studio musicians, either. Imagine playing Hendrix tunes with original Band of Gypsies members Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, tracked in New York with Eddie Kramer himself at the board. Or Stevie Ray Vaughan tunes along with Double Trouble.

GuitarPort includes a built-in chromatic tuner, an intelligent hum reducer, looping, and half speed playback for slowing down tracks without changing pitch. Selected tracks also include lead sheets and tabulature. Join GuitarPort Online and you'll also get Chord of the Week, Lick of the Week, and your own Tone Locker. In addition, GuitarPort Online hosts a thriving online community that includes discussion groups, tons of tones, plus an ever-expanding library of incredible music.

Make Your Computer a Guitar Rig, Jam Tool...
...and more. Hook the GuitarPort hardware to the USB port on your Windows computer and get the ideal guitar-computer connection. Plug in your guitar, fire up the included GuitarPort software, and you'll now see, hear and play through Line 6's revolutionary guitar amp modeling and effects technology, alongside the ultimate set of guitar jam tools. Then connect to GuitarPort Online and you'll discover a whole new world of guitar experience.

All the Ins and Outs
GuitarPort has you covered whether you want to hook up to your computer speakers, stereo or other audio equipment. Plug in headphones and jam away without alerting the authorities. It's all 24-bit audio quality, so you're right there with the pros. And connecting GuitarPort to your computer is a snap thanks to its USB jack.

Built By Guitarists for Guitarists
Guitarport is your "control panel" for a great guitar experience. Everything's right where you want it, and it's a breeze to operate. But don't let its ease of use fool you; there's some heavy-duty technology under the hood.

Loads O'Tone
Line 6 invented digital modeling guitar amps and is the magic behind the guitar tones used on countless platinum albums.

Now, Line 6 brings that same acclaimed tone technology from the greatest recording studios in the world to your desktop. GuitarPort's meticulously crafted recreations of a dream collection of ten sought after amps capture the range of tone found on the best guitar tracks ever recorded.

You can mix 'n match amp models and cab models based on Marshall, Fender, Mesa Boogie, Vox, Roland, and more, with controls laid out for a guitarist and not some computer geek. And the sound? The same dead-on classic tones used by hundreds of thousands of Line 6 users every day.

Start Jamming
To put your great guitar tone to use, GuitarPort lets you jam along with MP3 or WAV files, or any audio CDs in your personal collection. You can scan through the audio, jump to any point, loop any section, and even slow to half speed without changing pitch for careful study of your favorite lick, but that's just the beginning.

The optional GuitarPort Online service brings you hundreds of killer tracks recorded in the world's top studios, and not just with anonymous studio musicians, either. Imagine playing Hendrix tunes with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles. Or Stevie Ray Vaughan tunes along with Double Trouble. From guitar classics complete with tablature and tones to original compositions created expressly for GuitarPort by some of the world's great musicians, a membership in GuitarPort Online makes sure that you always have somebody to play with.

At Your Service
GuitarPort includes a built-in chromatic tuner, looping, intelligent hum reducer, and half speed playback for slowing down tracks without changing pitch. To really nail it, loop any section and play it back at half speed!

A Treasure Trove of Tracks
Ever wish you could throw down with Stevie Ray's band? Think you can match licks with Steve Vai You'll do it all with an optional Guitar Port Online membership, because we've assembled hundreds of classic tunes, recorded in top studios with world class musicians like the Band of Gypsies, Double Trouble, Brent Mason, Simon Phillips, and more. We've created lots of original music, and in some cases even remixed the artist's original master tapes! Just choose the song you want to play (with or without the main guitar part), load the tune, and feel the rush of jamming with the best players on earth. Its a dream collection of the most classic guitar songs of all time ranging from the Stones and AC/DC, to Albert King, and Metallica. The library also features cover versions of newer acts like Blink 182, Deftones, Rage Against The Machine, and more. Selected tracks include leadsheets and tablature.

There are also "Style" songs, commissioned by Line 6. These original tracks range from Blues and Country, to Jazz and Grunge, and are written or performed by top pros like Robben Ford & The Blue Line, Brent Mason, Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Simon Phillips, Leland Sklar, Gregg Bissonette, Tom Brechtlein, Roscoe Beck, Neil Larsen, Jason Bonham.

The basic requirement for GuitarPort is a PC with Windows XP, Windows 98SE, Windows ME or Windows 2000 installed, plus a Pentium III 500 MHz or better processor (Cyrix and K6 processors will not work with GuitarPort), and at least one available USB port (USB cable included). 128MB RAM is recommended. The PC must also satisfy these technogeek requirements: USB 1.1 and AGP Graphics; PC must be "legacy free" no ISA cards and all peripherals operating in DMA mode.

GuitarPort includes stereo mini (eighth-inch) and stereo RCA outputs for interfacing to music and sound equipment. Plus, of course, you're going to need an electric guitar.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (227 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very nice practice tool!"
Sound: For practice and familiarization with effects, this is great. Lots of sound variants, tones are very close to the sound you hear on recordings by artists like Hendrix. Feature: Just a USB cable and CD software. The software is the key to the usefulness of this device as the tones and tools such as metronome and tuner are part of the software interface. Ease of Use: Very intuitive interface. Easy to change and modify tones. Lends itself to experimentation. Sounds great over headphones and I assume external speakers. Quality: Looks very well made - haven't owned and used it long enough to test durability. It looks solid. Value: For a practice tool, this is great as long as you have a computer to support it. It WILL NOT work without a computer so you are tied to either you desktop or laptop and you must also have an internet connection for the services. Nevertheless, it fulfills my current requirement for a fun little practice tool. Manufacturer Support: Have not had need to contact the company. Some problems with connecting to the services that interact with the Guitarport. There is a user discussion forum that is helpful. The Wow Factor: I like the compactness and the layout of input and output jacks and volume control Overall: Will keep this as long as I play as it meets my needs. Maybe a stomp box or pedal effect would replace it. I would definitely buy a replacement if it breaks out of warranty or is lost or stolen.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
