Hello,

I am probably going to get a Line 6 POD for Christmas this year, so I can record covers and rough demos of original songs. My question is, should I get the GX or the UX1? I would like it to have a headphone jack, so I'm leaning towards the UX1. Does anyone have any experience with these?

Thanks

use a mac (garage band)


if you have a pc, use audacity or acid xpress. those are ones i can think of right away. both are free.

Yeah, I was planning on using Audacity for recording, I'm just wondering if it's better to go for the UX1 as opposed to the GX.

To be honest, I'd either get the GX or the UX2. The UX1 is kinda stupid because it has no phantom power and if you're ever going to be using a condenser mic, you'll be shit out of luck. If all you'll ever be doing is guitar/bass stuff, the GX is pretty cheap and gets the job done; I used mine for about a year before upgrading.

As for a DAW I'd get a real one such as Reaper, not Audacity.

Is there a headphone jack for the GX though? and I just looked it up and apparentely these things don't work in Windows 7, is this true?

Yea there's a headphone jack on the GX. I used mine with Windows 7 and never had any serious issues. I heard some people had issues before Line 6 got their shit together and made drivers for 7, but I have no experience with such problems.

Would the GX come with all the most updated/fixed software then? Or would I have to do that manually?

Probably comes with old stuff. You just have to download their Line 6 Monkey software and it downloads all the drivers and firmware for you.

Alright sounds good, I'll probably do that then. Thanks for all the help man
