I'd probably be the guiltiest party for pimping Line 6.

Welcome to HRC by the way.

So you have it installed properly and you have played through it and have that down already?

What software are you going to record with then?

IF it is Audacity, you simply need to go into the audio device options for Audacity and set the Line 6 drivers, preferably ASIO if Audacity will use them. Otherwise you will choose WDM for the driver type. Select them to be your main input and output drivers. Make certain you dis-able on board or other sound card drivers in Audacity or you will have conflicts.

Then you simply go and open a track to record in Audacity and arm it to use the Line 6 UX2 as the input.

I do suggest having the Gearbox or AmpFarm panel open to select and control your amp model. Do that before you open Audacity actually and it should be good.

You could use a line our of the UX to go to your amp. But if you have monitor's or headphones I suggest doing that as the amp might distract and is only going to be playing on mono channel as opposed to the stereo signal that many of the models put out.
Ask away if you have specific question's.

By the way, there is a fantastic help section that should have installed with the Gearbox or Amp Farm application. You can access it from the app itself. Otherwise, if the manual isn't getting you there as well the online tutorial at Line 6 is good and can run you through it step by step.

It won't get the Audacity part though as it is mostly generic. So you can get those answers here.

Well if you get walked through it or look to another program, which there are several free ones and some very good low budget ones it would be a breeze.

Using the unit is pretty much plug and play. I don't think I've ever encountered a problem we could not sort out for anyone regarding the Line 6 gear.

Dude, just have a little patience! Jeez I don't think I've seen anybody give up so quickly when tech problems surface. I know it can be frustrating but if you have any desire whatsoever to make your own music, you're going to have to fight through some difficulties.

There is enough expertise here on these boards to guide you through the process of getting set up correctly. All we have to do is take it one step at a time. Computer expert or not, recording guitar through a POD isn't impossible.

Also, you don't have to use the amp modeling with a UX2 (it is an option), you can simply mic your guitar cab.

Also, if your tracks are not lining up correctly you need to make sure you are using ASIO drivers and set your buffer for low latency. Although you may not get it, there are plenty of people who would help you through it if you have some patience.

There are a few basics to digital recording that you will run into no matter what software\hardware combination you use. They apply across the board.

I am currently running the UX8 and will do my best to answer any questions you may have. They should be very similar in function.

Are you on a MAC or PC?

From what I am reading Audacity does not support ASIO due to licensing. You want ASIO as it allows listening and recording at the same time and also reduces the out of sync problem so you won't have to slide tracks anymiore.

You can check your preferences\audio I\O to see if something like "ASIO UX2" is listed under there.

If you use PC I would suggest grabbing "Kristal Audio Engine". It supports all the new fluff, works very well and is free.

What sound out of what amp?

If your talking about a monitor set up. then yes, use the line outputs and send them with a cable to the inputs of the amp.

I'm not sure I would plug into a guitar amp if that is what you are going to do.

A little more detail is needed. You want sound from your amp, which sound and what amp.

As Noize stated, if you are trying to monitor your performance while playing back previously recorded sessions you would want the outputs 1&2 from the Line6 going to some powered monitors or you could get 1/4" to RCA cables and run it into any old stereo reciever.

Just remember, if you are recording through a mic to use headphones so you don't get the song bleeding into the mic.

Tell us what you have available and I'm sure we can come up with some sort of solution. When you can though, investing in some decent monitors is a very worthy investment and will sound much cleaner.

Me for instance, I use the M-Audio BX5a's @ $300. They have built in amps, are plenty loud for my setup and sound pretty damn good.

Just for reference....

Some 99$ M-audio if you end up shopping on the cheap.

Some kickin JBL's @ $1539 if your rich like DB.
