Ok, I bought the previous edition of this ten years ago, and it is still going strong, and the way it processes audio has made it incredibly useful for adding effects in applications that don't have plugins like iClone animation software. I can add an echo to a vocal or record a scratch music track on guitar. It is funny, but it feels like 'my favorite old amp' to me. I own newer, more polished guitar plugins now, but that doesn't stop this little guy from being incredibly useful and imminently playable without having to fire up a whole DAW. The effects and amps are good enough for me, and I still only have the older version of Pod Farm. It was the best $50 I have ever spent on computer audio gear, and I'd replace it with another if my died. It works fine on Win 10 64 bit, and I'm just amazed. I took time out of my life to write this, so yeah. 5 stars. Thoroughly dependable.

A/D - almost for free...

I have been a heavy user of Reason/Record using midi control surfaces (including guitar). I needed an inexpensive way to get my analog stringed instrument signals onto Record tracks, but with some character. This box was the perfect solution - I have my A/D, and I can color the guitar or bass with the amp and efx modeling in the device. I haven't even had the need to add other modeling solutions. Home run Line 6.

Awesome Product

This little box is amazing. After getting everything installed and activated (you have to have internet to use the POD), I plugged in and chose a preset and immediately started playing. The software has hundreds of built-in presets; the one thing I do not like is that not all presets work because this is the limited version of the software. The only thing I can say is it took me awhile to figure out you have to plug your speakers into the GX itself; it won't play over your computer speakers. But the amp models and effects the software has built in are AMAZING.

Amazing tool!

This thing is just KILLER!!! It was delivered on time, un-damaged, and came with everything! Installation was easy. However, I had to download an update application from It has very low latency (no lag!). It produces some very high quality sound! It also came with POD Farm standard, Riffworks T4, and Ableton Live Lite 7. Thank you for your excellent service!
