A Virtual Gear Closet -- Courtesy of Line 6's POD Farm Plug-in

Your choice of amps, cabinets, effects, stomps, and preamps are at your service, and of course, the hundreds of available tones are fully adjustable, editable to accommodate your performance. With everything from classic to vintage to modern, the POD Farm plug-in (Mac/Windows) features 18 guitar amps modeled after the likes of the Fender Deluxe Reverb, Marshall JCM-800, Vox AC-30 Top Boost, Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier, and more. You also get 24 guitar cabinets; 5 bass amps and 5 bass cabs; and 29 stomp box and studio effects modeled after the EP-1 Tube Echoplex, Ibanez Tube Screamer, MXR Phase 90, LA-2A studio compression, and other iconic pieces. Six mic preamps modeled after the Neve 1073, Avalon Vt737, API 512c, and other choice pieces round out the plug-in's extensive collection of soft instruments.

Playing with classic tones and modern modeled gear is as simple as dragging and dropping POD Farm models into the signal flow, pre-, or post-amplifier. A carousel-style gear browser elegantly displays the plug-in's modeled instruments. If you're the type of musician to get in, get the sound, and get out, you'll like the fact that hundreds of presets are programmed and ready to be played. If you're a tweaker, there's something in POD Farm for you too, since all sounds are fully editable.

Line 6 ToneDirect monitoring means virtually no latency, so you can record with all your fave amp and FX models without sounding less than sublime.

Plenty of I/O for All Your Guitars and Gear

Product Description

POD Studio UX2 combines the stunning sound of POD Farm plug-in with a rock-solid and powerful USB interface. Essential to the success of countless platinum-selling albums, these immortal Line 6 guitar, bass and effects tones are now available for recording guitarists.

In 1998, Line 6 released Amp Farm(R) amp modeling plug-in and forever changed the way guitarists record. Ten years and dozens of groundbreaking creations later, Line 6 continues the recording revolution with POD Farm.

POD Farm, the Premium Tone Plug-in

From dark and smoky American combos to blazing, gain-crazed English stacks, the sounds of hundreds of fully adjustable amps and cabs, plus studio-standard effects, stompboxes and preamps, are here for you to define your music and cement your place in history.

POD Farm plug-in features the sounds of the sought-after vintage essentials and must-have modern monsters necessary for a pro-sounding recording. It includes 18 immortal guitar amps (modeled after* Fender(R) Deluxe Reverb(R), Marshall(R) JCM-800, Vox(R) AC-30 Top Boost, Mesa/Boogie(R) Dual Rectifier(R), and more), 24 guitar cabs, 5 bass amps and 5 bass cabs, 29 essential stompbox and studio effects (modeled after* EP-1 Tube Echoplex, Ibanez(R) Tube Screamer(R), MXR(R) Phase 90, LA-2A(R) studio compression, and more) and 6 crucial mic preamps (modeled after* Neve(R) 1073, Avalon Vt737, API(R) 512c, and more).

Drag and drop models into the signal flow, pre or post amplifier. The carousel-style gear browser, displaying each and every coveted model, provides an experience that's a dream come true. Creating classic tones or imaginative hybrids is incredibly fast and easy.

Fully adjustable, each model offers total tweak capability. Also, with hundreds of presets available, classic gear combinations can be chosen to provide timeless tones in an instant.

UX2, the Lowest Noise for the Clearest Recordings

UX2 boasts the lowest noise for recording guitar, 12dB more dynamic range than similar interfaces, for clear and dynamic recordings. Plus, exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect(TM) monitoring virtually eliminates latency allowing you to record with amp and effect modeling and without sacrificing tone or feel.

Versatile and powerful, UX2 boasts a comprehensive I/O featuring two 1/4-inch guitar inputs (normal or pad), two balanced XLR inputs with high-quality mic preamps, phantom power and trim knobs, a 1/4-inch stereo monitor input, two 1/4-inch line inputs, two balanced 1/4-inch line outputs, S/PDIF digital output, a 1/4-inch stereo headphone output with level control and a pair of assignable VU meters for a truly pro recording experience.

Public Service Announcement: Latency Kills

Recording with latency is like driving with your eyes closed. Exclusive to Line 6, ToneDirect monitoring allows you to record and monitor a fully processed tone while virtually eliminating latency and taking all the guesswork out of recording great-sounding tracks.

What's latency? Latency is the delay caused by the time it takes your guitar signal to travel all the way through your hardware interface, through your computer's processor, through your plug-in software, back through your hardware interface and out of your speakers or headphones. This delay is heard in your monitoring signal and makes recording almost impossible. With a POD Studio UX2 interface, latency is something you'll never have to deal with.

Start Recording Right Out of the Box

POD Studio UX2 includes POD Farm plug-in, Ableton(R) Live Lite Line 6 Studio Edition 16-track recording software ideal for guitarists, and award-winning Reason Adapted production software featuring a sought-after sequencer and tons of stunningly lifelike instruments. This collection of studio-standard hardware and software provides instant pro recording, right out of the box.

"10 OF 10, Because it doesn't go to 11."
Sound: With DOZENS of AMAZING pre-set features, and HUNDREDS of individual settings, you can jam RIGHT out of the box to the sound of classic tunes, or spend a few minutes setting up an entirely NEW tone just for you with the SIMPLEST of ease. Feature: Comes with a plethora of software, each easy to set up and use, each with different functions. Each is stand-alone, EXTREMELY in-depth, adjustable, programmable, so you dont have to run 73 applications at once, you can do it with just 2. Ease of Use: Plug and play. easy as that. ANYONE can use this, from a beginner to the Veterans of the road. Quality: Sturdy, durable, compact, with easy to use knobs, and a recessed face to protect from impacts. Value: WORTH EVERY PENNY I SPENT. Manufacturer Support: comes with software that easily updates and installs with the click of a button. The Wow Factor: All digital electronics, with ANALOG level gauges on the front, for that old-school retro look that still turns heads. Overall: I will be using this for YEARS to come. it does EVERYTHING i could possibly need, and eliminates a vast amount of gear. It renders most comparable products OBSOLETE.

"Versatile and worth the money!"
Sound: The UX2/Pod Farm bundle gives you a ton of guitar, bass and vocal sounds in one box but be prepared to tweak presets in order to get the best results. After a while I was able to find some great amp models that gave me the sounds I was after. I could dial up a sound similar to Early Van Halen and also the cleanest of Fender shimmering amps. I really found that the sound changed greatly depending on which guitars I used so it didn't just strip every instrument of its individuality. Feature: Well, in theory you could record with just this bundle but in reality you need to also invest in good recording software. I use a PC so I swear by Sonar. Ease of Use: Setup was easy but if you're not good with computers it may take you a bit longer. Tweaking the sounds will take a while but with Pod Farm's visual interface you'll find it a breeze. Quality: The UX2 interface is plastic and it's light but I haven't had any problems with it and I've been using it a lot in the past year. Value: I love this product and would buy it again in a heartbeat. It's pretty easy to use and if you're good with computers, you'll love all the options! Manufacturer Support: Go to Line 6's forums and you'll always find helpful people there to help you with any problem you might have. There are plenty of Line 6 people there too. I usually don't even have to wait a full day before someone answers my questions. The Wow Factor: The analog VU meters are sexy but some might be turned off by the plastic construction. Not the best made USB audio interface but you're not going to find more features and value for anywhere close to this price Overall: I use the UX2 and GearBox software all the time and it makes creating music easy. Now that I've upgraded to the Pod Farm, it's even easier to dial up great sound. Control freaks will love the amount of control over every aspect of their tone but it's still easy to dial in a great sound.
