How Is the sound and how easy is it to use? I hear alot of mixed reviews about this little piece of hardware. Id think it would be a great way to get into my computer. Considering i would have a choice of using or not using the gearbox software. Anyone have any recordings that they could share with me so i i could hear the quality? Thanks

It's not proffesional quality in my opinion but it is very decent sounding and easy to use. My only problem is that the distortion always sounds a bit tinny but that's just me :P

I've got a few recordings using my toneport on www.myspace.com/garyd1991

If you've got a decent computer, go for it, you'll love it
otherwise you'll be tearing your hair out from the latency

Well, I'd recommend it. I've been using the UX2 for some 3 years now, I'm recording everything through it. Like with every gear, it takes some time to get hang of how to geed good tones out of it.


Checkout a song called Hindsight on my profile

All guitar, bass and vocal tracks are recorded with the Toneport.

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

I dunno, I just put 2 and 2 together that way

Toneport review:

Do they work? Yes
How is the sound? Fair, but not great

I tend to call these "idea interfaces" because they are not great for the price. The preamps are quite noisy and gearbox doesnt do a good job.

I suggest spending a little more and going with a proper interface such as an EMU 0202, 0404, or PreSonus Inspire 1394. For software you can use Guitar Rig.

I think the sound you got there is pretty damn good for something so inexpensive...im not expecting amazing results...but from what i hear that aint half bad...plus ive got myself an sm57 and a nice amplifier to mic into it if i dont like the onboard sounds...i figure even if gearbox doesnt get me an amazing tone the least this thing will do is work as a descent audio interface

Personally, I'd go with something else, as moody said. Gearbox isn't great, not great preamps and the USB connection is 1.1. There's better on the market, I view the Toneports as a bit of a gimmick to be honest.
There is poetry in despair.
