Step up to the Line 6 Sonic Port with the free Mobile POD app

True to its name, the Mobile POD app serves up a never-ending palette of tone, covering much of what has made POD a household name. Specifically, the Mobile POD app hooks you up with 32 legendary amps plus 16 cabinets to match, all on top of a collection of 16 classic stompbox effects. In total, you have a library of over 10,000 killer guitar tones waiting for you the moment you hook up your Line 6 Sonic Port digital iOS guitar interface.

Flexible I/O for solo practice, studio recording, and live performance

The Line 6 Sonic Port is easily one of the most powerful and portable iOS interfaces anywhere near its price point. One of the coolest things about the Sonic Port is its flexible I/O. On the input side, you have both a 1/4" guitar-level input, and a 1/8" stereo line input for keyboards and other gear. What's more, a single 1/4" output on the Sonic Port lets you connect to either a pair of stereo headphones, a set of studio monitors, or a guitar amp. That means you can come up with a cool guitar tone when you're hashing out song ideas, use that same tone when you're tracking your next tune, and then take it live onstage.

Rock out to the songs you love in Jammit and get killer tone to match

Jammit is an amazing iOS app that lets you download and mix stems from your favorite tunes, so you can play along with your guitar. You just find the tune you want, grab it, and you're good to go. Jammit lets you set up your own mix using just a few faders, so you can tweak the whole thing in whatever way helps you play the best. And when you pair your Line 6 Sonic Port with the Jammit app, you instantly get access to the perfect tones you need to play any song you download. Talk about a killer practice tool! With a Line 6 Sonic Port and the Jammit app in your toolbox, you'll be ready to rock along to tons of great songs and always have the tone you need at hand.

Sonic Port - Line 6

I own a Line 6 Live X3 pedalboard. Because of this I think could almost sell the X3. I use this with my iPhone 6 and iPad mini Retina. The processing power of Apple products is literally years better than the X3. The Line 6 app is free to use once you own the sonic port. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING ELSE FOR TONES. If you have a guitar, amp, and iPhone/iPad, you're good to go. IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE POWERED. Plug it in and it works! Clean too. No pops or hums, or lags. It technically has two outputs. The main guitar output and the headphone output. You could get a headphone adapter and use this to split the same signal into two separate amps. With that being said, I purchased Jam Up Pro through the Apple app store because I prefer the interface over Line 6's. You wouldn't have to though. The line 6 app has tons of tones all free if you own this. More than the Jam up pro app, I think. You're able to share, modify, create, download, save tones in this app and Jam up pro. For me, I just do it faster with Jam up pro. I go back and forth between the two apps because really, "Who owns one single pedal?" Now the sick setup: I own a bose color speaker. It has it's own built in rechargeable battery. I put my guitar on, have my phone in one pocket the sonic port in another pocket and bose speaker goes in the small pocket of my backpack that i'm also wearing. I can walk around playing guitar. ANYWHERE. It's like i'm walking around with a digital futuristic pignose amp! But with THOUSANDS OF POSSIBLE TONES LITERALLY IN MY POCKET! If you like to street perform, here it is. If you like to edit tones, here it is. If your amp sucks, but the clean channel is ok, here it is. If you own an iPad/Iphone, here it is. If you own anything Android, It's totally not here.

This thing is so much fun. Nice, solid, substantial build. I use it with ampkit+ and it's so much fun. Has a small footprint. I am very happy with this purchase. I am also very happy with Sweetwater. Thanks.

More than what is expected.

I was just happy being able to practice at bedroom volume with this thing. But, when I went to rehearsal the other day I thought I'd try bypassing the amp and cabinet simulation in the mobile pod app and run a parametric eq, delay and reverb through the FX loop of my boogie rectifier. And it sounds great!!! Money well spent man!!! I don't need to bring my rack FX with me anymore, the iPad and the line 6 sonic port is all I need dude!!!

SonicPort Interface

I have been using the SonicPort for about a month now, and WOW... so much better than the Irig or other cable rig devices available. No latency issues at all. I have been using it live with JamUp ProXT. the only complaint I have is in the design, It sucks to have to adapt 1/4 to XLR to go to PA when playing live. I think it would be an exceptable sacrifice in making the SonicPort a little larger to have a XLR and 1/4 output. Increasing the size of the unit to that of a standard DI box would be totally acceptable if you gained the extra connectivity options. Another nice option would be a MP3 in port.. But as is this is the best interface unit for iOS users there is..

As good as it gets!

I ordered the Line 6 Sonic Port after doing plenty of research on iOS connectors for guitar. I am NOT disappointed! It comes with connectors for 30 pin and Lightning(I use the Lightning on an iPad) It is small and easy to use. Setup is a snap. Within 5 min, including download of the free app, I was filling my headphones with a cacophony of 6 string noise. Yes, noise... The reason I say noise is because the free LINE 6 app is horrible. The effect and models are VERY synthetic and harsh. I tried a few other free apps and found the JamUp app to be the best sounding with more options, better controls, the ability to jam with your favorite songs, recording features and looping feature. But stop taking my word for it. If you need an iOS plug in device buy this one!
