Line 6 Toneport

So, I bought a Line 6 Toneport UX1. One of the reasons I bought a Vox Valvetronix last year was that I had hoped it would work to use the line out feature into my sound card. Well, it didn't do that too well. It doesn't sound good to my ears. 

I have been thinking about how to get my guitar recorded in a simple and effective way. Micing my amps sound great, but I end up bugging everyone else in the house and the microphone picks up the dog barking, etc.

Using my pedals line in into the sound card doesn't sound great either. They don't have speaker simulation features, so it's less than ideal.

My thoughts have been to get a amp modeling unit, like Line 6 POD XT, Behringer V-Amp, Vox Tonelab or similar. I didn't really want a big, clumsy unit made for playing through and amp - I just wanted something for recording only.

The Line 6 Guitarport seemed liked an interesting alternative, and then I heard of the Line 6 Toneport. I asked people for advice, and it turned out one guy had a Toneport he didn't use. So, I just bought it. I haven't received the Toneport yet, but I am looking forward to trying it out!

Why did I buy it? Well, there are a few reasons:

 I'll write more about the Toneport once I get it. Being able to get down guitar tracks quick and easy is something I hope I will be able to do with this unit, and something I really look forward to.

The Line 6 Toneport UX1 can be had from Musician's Friend
