Hey im just wondering if someone could help me understand this...
see ive decided on getting a toneport ux1 to record some stuff on & ive found this auction on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=270189320591&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=017

However, it says that the usb cable & software disk have gone missing. Now the usb seems easy to replace (although pls correct me if im mistaken i.e. there's some sort of specialised toneport compatible usb available) but it says that the software drivers etc can also be downloaded off the line 6 website & goes on to say

'Please note the following from Line 6s website - Plug-in processing requires the purchase and activation of a license from the Line 6 Online Store'

which made no sense to me whatsoever so i clicked on the link & got to the page..only to find out that it costs a completely ridiculous amount of $199 for this gearbox plug-in crap! But then i also found out that there's a free version of gearbox?
So what im askin here is do i really have to pay that stupid amount of money to get gearbox or is the free version good enough & compatible with toneport?
hopefully someone out there knows whats going on here & can help as the auction is ending fairly soon

software is easy d/l of the website but that usb isnt just a regular usb as far as i know its got a square connection at one end.

Edit: gearbox isnt crap tbh, dont talk bull until youve used the stuff. also its not really free as its only compatible with the toneport therefore the reason its free on the website is that they assume you have a toneport and so give it for d/l as only people that have a toneport can use it. the price youre looking at is the software plus the toneport UX1. also it comes with different sound packages rather than just the standard ones which cme with the original gearbox.

Edit2: someone needs to write a sticky for teh toneports because there are like 3 toneport questions a day because people are too retarded to search

oh alright I didnt win the auction in the end anyways but thanks for that.
umm yer I think that you've misinterpreted what I was saying about gearbox. I just stating my astonisment at such expense for the software as Im fairly new to this whole recording thing as you may be able to tell.

& yes Im too retarded to search

Thanks for your reply once again.

now how to close this obviously uneeded thread...
