Line 6 Guitar Port

Posted by Jamorama on October 6th, 2009

If you have a laptop  or tower computer but you are wondering exactly how you can plug your guitar into it one of the most popular and versatile options is the Line 6 guitar port. The advantage of using your computer as an amp and guitar control centre is that you can get killer guitar tones without blowing the windows out or receiving lawsuits from your neighbours.

Just connect the shiny red GuitarPort XT to your Windows® or Mac® machine with the included USB cable and connect the stereo output on GuitarPort XT to your computer speakers, headphones or stereo. Fire-up GuitarPort software, plug in your guitar and you’re ready to go!

  • […] The Jam Mate has a discretely placed USB socket on the back, enabling a digital connection to the USB port of virtually any modern computer. The supplied software gives access to a huge range of presets  so you can create huge sounds without resorting to a stadium sized guitar rig. HOwever, if you still like the idea ofan interface have alook at the Line 6 Guitar Port. […]

    I have seen this gadget in so many places and I know it is used by a lot of great guitarists, specially in the metal/hard rock music style… I would love to get it! Some day maybe…
    Does anyone out there owns it? Thoughts? Comments?

    You can get the same or better from IK MUltimedia’s”Amplitube”. For software that is free. You’ll need an audio interface with a 1/4″ jack for the guitar. In the reviewed product all the function is in the software. I like “Amplitube” a little better and a LOT better after buying one of their amp model plug-ins.

      We’ve just done a post on the IK Amplitube. I must say it really is easy to use. That said, when it comes to amp modelling, Line 6 have been doing it for a while and are pretty good at what they do.

      IK Multimedia have leveraged emerging technologies to help people play anywhere which is very cool too.
