I know there's an FAQ and all that but I was just wondering:

If I get the Line6 Toneport GX (which according to the user's 'round here is quite good for the money) can I got from my amp into that? I mean using a line out, or would I have to go from the FX loop (being lower output i assume)? Or would I be better off using just the models that come with the GX?

I don't want anything pro quality or anything, just a way of recording my ideas quickly and maybe recording some backing track jams or whatever.

You'd be better off using the models in GearBox, yes. The GX only has a Hi-Z instrument input (that I know of) and using the line out or FX loop on your amp would just be stupid. And absolute bare bones recording is just setting up an old-school boom box in front of your amp and pressing record. That's how I did it back in 1984...

All right then, bare bones digital recording

Thanks though, much appreciated.

Lol, been there, done that. But yeah to reaffirm Ebon00's answer since your amp does not have a balanced line out you will have impedence issues if you try to plug straight into the toneport without say a DI box inline. Even with a DI box, though, it might still sound worse than just using the gearbox stuff.

Barebones digital recording is the same idea, only with a computer mic.

Uhhh...no? I'm going to be going from the guitar, straight to the Toneport GX to the computer; no mic involved at all.
