So I'm going to college in 11 days and I need to get a decent practice setup.

At home I have a halfstack and pedals and the like, but that is clearly not going to college with me.

I have a sweet laptop, decent speakers, and an really good pair of sennheiser IEM's.

What I need, is something to plug my guitar directly into my computer with so I can practice/record/etc. I have used the line 6 ux1, and I had to many problems with it to want to use it, so i sold it.

I want something similar, but I don't know what. The Jamvox perhaps? Any thoughts?

I use a lexicon lambda (alpha is the single input version) and thats worked really well with me on garage band, FLstudio and logic. i dont love it for actual playing but for headphones and recording, my line 6 spider 3 doesnt do too bad. good luck with your first semester man, enjoy the hell out of it

do you have a PC or a Mac, and what problem were you having with the Line 6 ux1?

i am no expert on any of this, just thought i could get you a jump on what the next person would ask.

i used guitar port a long time ago, and i imagine that the ux1 is similar, but wouldn't be able to help you with it.

there are tons of these threads around here (you are the third one i have seen in the last half hour), look for other ideas in some of those.

I've never used anything but my RP150. It has a cool effect editing interface with X-Edit. You can line in record with it. I dunno, though, I've never had experience with anything else, so it could totally suck. Haha. I like it though. If you go with Digitech probably RP255 is the best+cheapest.

Focusrite Saffire 6. I have one and it's amazing, perfect sound quality and you can either record or play "live" using Amplitube, Guitar Rig etc.

I've got a pc. Also, I'd only like to spend about $100. The focusrite is another item I've been looking to get. So Maybe I'll get that instead?

I have a hatred for line 6 for some reason. The UX1 I got was literally a shitstorm of problems.

PODs are one of the few things that Line 6 makes of actual quality. It's what I used all throughout college. Never had a single problem and haven't played anything I'd rather have in terms of convenience/value.

I used Line 6 POD Farm with the UX1, but in retrospect I would go with the UX2 since it has phantom power if you ever want to take recording somewhat seriously.
