    Default line6 toneport gx question

    quick question for all you guys out there that use a line6 toneport gx
    i just ordered one and after ordering it i checked the specs (duh! )
    it says that its compatable with windows xp sp2 only, now the laptop im going to be using to record with is a new model with windows vista so will it work ok?..or will i have to run it in compatability mode?

    the only reason i bought this particular model is because im only just really starting to record at home properly, previously i have just been using a studio or pluging my pedal board and multi fx straight into my soundcard and recording from there using a free recording program (krystal audio suite), but now i want something a little more professional sounding and also dont wanna kill my soundcard.

    thanks in advance guys

    yes it will work.i think you need to go to line 6's web site and download the vista drivers.......i got mine a little ways back and had the same concern...just do the update of drivers and its all good...........check out the EVH setting.sounds pretty good imho..........i use mine regularily and have no problems.other than a couple.i wish now that i would have bought a software based program rather than a hardware based piece of equipment .i am using my toneport for guitars and a fast track pro for recording everything else......it presents problems and a couple hasssles that i havent been able to work around yet........

    nice one i was a little concerned that i was gonna have to use my old and slow 2003 campaq!
    are there any major latency issues with them or are they quite fast, and can i use my pedal board inline with it...i love my whammy pedal and would really miss it if it wasnt there!

    the best way to monitor your sound is plugging your headphones directly into the toneport itself .that way there are no latency issues at all.........i am sure you can plug your board in front of the tonport for effects........but one thing cool about the TP is ,of course ,placing various stuff after the pre-amp section you get a diff and often better sound.this is a no-brainer im sure.im just sayin........i find the headphones dont quite go loud enough for my listening levels but im sure sure many will find them loud enough...
