UX2 is HIgh Quality Audio.....FunI can say I have tried an absurd amount of various recording units and interfcaes over the years, decades....this is not only my favorite layout of all, its user freiendly and offers the Guitar, Bass, and Vocal preamps, effects all inside the box. It works flawlessly with Reaper DAW.
Only complaint is they stopped making the UX8, but for me , I only record two at a time max anyway.
The software layout for me is what gives Line 6 the 5 stars...one extra star for the great layout.

Don't Record without it.I have three of these. put one in every studio. easy to use. sometimes a pain to set up due to constantly changing drivers and software versions, but once its going its worth it. record everything from demo's to commercial releases. one album I recorded is a Universal release. All vox, bass, and guitar was tracked through a tube pre into this into protools. the ux2 has made me thousands over the past 6 years.

Simply awesome!I´ve heard great things of the Lne 6 POD UX2, but since i got some bad experiences from other Line 6 Devices, i was a little sceptic.
I eventually bought the UX 2 anyway,....wanted to give it a chance. And oh my god what a product it is. Its the best audio interface i´ve had so far whit its extremely high quality sounds. Ofcourse, the quality of the sounds is based on what guitar you have. If you have a cheap half-decent budget guitar like i have you will get a less good sound. But if you you have a good, high quality guitar, the Line6 POD UX2 is absolutly the way to go.

Very niceI haven't used this unit extensively but, so far, I'm impressed with the sound quality and ease of use.
I had no setup issues if I used default setup configuration; running monitors directly from the unit resulted in absolutely zero latency.
If I tried to use my expensive Creative soundcard for playback, however, I had just enough to make that setup unusable.
Honestly, though, playback through the unit's internal soundcard sounds great.
I think it is a really good option for entry into the world of computer recording/editing. As mentioned, setup options are limited, but it is a high quality unit (had to get used to the plastic exterior, though) that should last a beginner quite a while before he/she feels compelled to upgrade.
It's a very nice unit for the money.

Pod Studio and Pod Farm 2.51Plugging into hardware for guitar tones and achieving them is as simple as taking the product out of the box and getting the cables run. With Pod Studio - have patience - you'll have to install, download, update, install, update, authorize, download, install, update, and authorize before you'll hear tone 1. And don't expect any product documentation in the form of a manual, or even a pdf file either...it ain't there. You'll receive an outdated software disc, that once you install and the Line 6 Monkey, you will be prompted to update, then the drivers, then the authorization codes. Working with a fast laptop running Windows 7, this process took two days before I could use my purchase, and I wish I could tell you why. Now that I'm using the Pod Studio, I am happy to say that the sounds are very good - I really love using the pre-amps and eq's that are designed for vocal sounds for my full band mixes - which I run in through the line in inputs from my multitrack machine and record the mixes into a program called Reaper - but you could use anything from Sonar to Pro Tools. In the Pod Farm program, there is a drop down list of presets - my main caveat. The folks at Line 6 thought they'd give you lots of presets that you can't use unless you buy add on packs. So you see one that looks perfect for the song you are doing, call it up, and certain parts of you signal chain are "greyed out", meaning you don't have the ability to use it as intended. Wow, what an innovation. I bought my first Pod, the kidney shaped device 12 years ago and it didn't have settings that you couldn't use unless you upgraded....really moving up aren't we? The sounds you get are good though and for the money you'll find lots of uses for this product....but don't get ****** off and break the damn thing before you use it!
