I use the StealthPlug from IK Multimedia. You have countless options on guitar plugins with it.

Hi:

Have you installed Line 6 Monkey on your Mac yet? You will need to do this, and then do a "refresh" of the UX2 serial number to re-register it on your new machine (and effectively de-register/de-activate it from the old machine). Sorry that I can't remember the specific step-by-step details, so you will probably have to reference the Line 6 forum for these. I have always run my Line 6 products on a Mac, but I had a similar sort of issue when my hard disk got corrupted and I lost all my Line 6 software and drivers (Toneport KB37 drivers, Gear Box, the lot), and managed to re-download and re-install everything from scratch. From what I recall, you enter 'refresh' instead of the actual serial number into Monkey, but I was in a bit of a panic at the time, so, again, best to check with the manufacturer for the precise sequence.

Basically, I believe that whichever Line 6 device you are using only seems to work with one specific machine at one time (a bit like a dongle), and also has to be registered on-line with Line 6, but I could be totally wrong., as I haven't tried connecting to any other machine apart from my own Mac.

Not sure if that helps?

I'll have to second that. I bought a "tone direct" interface to go with my macbook pro and it seems ok.... Have you sent your Monkey online to check for updates?

Hi!

I will check my settings when I get home tonight. Although I normally use Abelton Live, I obviously have Garageband installed as well, so I'll try that out this evening with the . In the meantime, from what I remember, Gear Box did need a bit of a 'kick-start', so you might want to try running it up first before starting GarageBand and making sure that you set the 'Input' selection to 'Instrument', as it may be defaulting to one of the Line or Mic options.

When you say that the level is about half on the meters, do you mean it is static at that level (constant dB) or are the meters fluctuating in response to the music dynamics.

More details to follow...

Hi!

Just trying out a set up with Garage Band, and found one amusing little glitch - if you update the driver for the Tone Port product (as I just did), make sure you disconnect the USB cable after rebooting with the new driver, wait about 5 seconds, then reconnect while still powered on, otherwise the Tone Port and its registration may 'disappear' from Line 6 Monkey's device table, and will show up as 'unregistered' locally, but 'already registered' on your web account! Catch 22.

BTW: From your what you say, I think you are still using GearBox - so at some point, you will probably want to switch to Pod Farm (GearBox is end-of-maintenance now), although I believe there is some cost involved in this unless you have already bought and activated GearBox in its plug-in option. Ironically, if you are a new convert to Line 6, you get Pod farm and RiffWorks for free, and a whole bunch of 'Gold Pack' extras (i.e. they are now bundled options), whereas the more loyal patrons and early adopters have to pay for the same upgrades. Such is life.
