Tone Port - For Your Next Hit Song

toneport-big-photo.jpg

As I am not a guitarist, I gave the new Line 6 - a company well-known by professional producers, engineers, and musicians - Toneport GX guitar gizmo to a friend of mine, who shall remain nameless except to say his nickname is "Doctor" (and not because he has a medical degree). We've all settled down a lot since those days.

He says he uses the line 6 toneworks "constantly," by connecting his guitar to the toneworks and then through his laptop which he hooked up to studio monitors. The sounds he can get are "amazing" and he reports from guitar central that "the software is simple enough for even an adult to understand." It took him 10 minutes to set it up.

The Doctor has the unit synced up with "cakewalk" software (digital recording & mixing platform) to do multi-track recording.

Here's some more of what he had to say:

- You can download the latest line 6 guitar patches from the website - there are hundreds of sounds available,
- You can get a percussion track running & then jam along with it,
- The toneworks interface can be synced with the latest digital recording platforms like "protools" or "cakewalk" so you can record multitrack instrumentals & vocals direct to a hard drive,
- It's Windows compatible (at least on XP - Vista may be another story).

It's enough to make you want to take up guitar, isn't it?
