Practice Was NEVER This Fun!

GuitarPort is a unique combination of hardware and software tools that will connect your guitar and PC in a way you've never imagined before.

Ever wished you were laying down tracks in Electric Ladyland or any world-famous studio? GuitarPort can make that dream real. GuitarPort allows you to put yourself into classic recordings and famous studios via your PC. Plug your axe into the GuitarPort, plug the GuitarPort into your computer, and you're ready to go with a host of fantastic options.

The models are some of the best in the world! You get ten impeccable amp models, based on tone classics like a '53 Fender Wide Panel Deluxe or a '94 Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, to cover a huge spectrum of inspiring tone.You can call up tablature and performance tips for particular tracks so you can get as close as you want to the original sound. But there's more to GuitarPort than just great tone. A built-in audio player lets you jam along with your favorite CDs and MP3s. It also includes a built-in chromatic tuner, an intelligent hum reducer, looping, and half speed playback for slowing down tracks without changing pitch.

When you join the GuitarPort Online Service (it's just $7.99 a month through Line 6), you can play along with hundreds of classic killer tracks recorded in the world's top studios via computer!

Sweetwater Advice

The Line 6 Guitar Port is the guitarist's answer to jamming at home, offering big studio quality on your PC computer. It's a combination of real-time mixer, amp modeler, effects modeler, and real time tracks to play along with. Installation & Introductions! Installation is a breeze and the documentation is good, walking you through every step of the process. Everything you need comes in the box; a USB Cable, an 1/8" cable, and the Guitar Port itself. Once you've installed the software you plug in your guitar to the High Z input on the front, turn up the volume knob, tune your guitar using the software tuner and begin to dig into the sounds. The internal sounds are similar in quality to those found in the POD, but Guitar Port is a practice tool, not a replacement for the POD in the studio or on gigs. For instance, I doubt you'd call the promoter and ask if they had a PC that you could load your Guitar Port system on. In The Studio I plugged a set of headphones directly into the Guitar Port so as not to annoy my wife. I could have plugged my sound card output into the back of the Guitar Port and played some tracks back from my DAW software, but I decided to try the tracks that Line 6 put together - this was the fun part. I started the stock background track and was surpised at how up front the sound was, it made it easy to be confident in what you were playing. The Line 6 Guitar Port online service is currently $7.99 per month, and gives you access to real-time play along with other people, as well as pre-recorded background tracks - from the original Jimi Hendrix tracks to modern studio musicians. If you're jamming online it would be best to have a cable modem, DSL or other broadband connection; while you can still jam online with a 56K modem, the process is going to be very slow, though you can still download the tracks to play along with from your computer. In Conclusion I think the Gutiar Port is great for at-home practice, guitar enthusiasts, music educators, and environments like school music labs. It's also a great practice tool to help keep a regular performing musician's chops in check.
