    have you got your phones plugged into the UX2?
    usually you monitor through a set of headphones or speakers plugged into the unit....i dont have a UX2 but i do own some a toneport GX (yeah i'm a cheapskate) and the only way to get any sound from it is through phones, the UX2 may be different though, read the tutorial and run line6 monkey to make sure everything is compatable.

    The problem may not have anything to do with the Line 6. Are you getting sound through the computer speakers? I'm not on a Mac right now, but I think that you may need to choose the monitors as your audio output.

    Try Apple's support page. Here's a starting point:

    im not as famil with macs as PCs but i do own a UX 1 .........so this maybe PC only advice,not sure, but the
    UX acts like a sound card for your machine.so when i plug mine in ,i need to open the control panel of the PC and manually change the setting from the computers own spoeakers to the line 6 output..........this works for me..........i now have tyhe settings set so it will recognize when the UX is plugged and it seems to switch over..........

    Yes, on a mac it's the same thing. Go to system preferences then sound and you need to find the toneport stuff there to set it...if I recall correctly....

    Finally, I got it figured out. You have to use monitors or headphone so I've been using headphones. It's really cool, has anyone tried the 5160 head (which is one of the additional mods you can buy)?

    I'm going to try to do some recording with Garage Band or some of the recording software it came with.

    Garage band works great with it! I record with it all the time.

    Get some cheap monitors and use those are your Mac speakers. I got some small ones for $150 and they sound great. Using the headphones kind of sucks...at least for me.

    I bought the GX back in the Fall, and although I haven't really recorded since then, I obviously went on a tear and made a bunch of dorky VH-style clips. Best $50 I've spent in I don't know how long!

    Let me know if you want to hear any of my short clips. I also use Garage Band, and I've got them converted to MP3s. Just make sure your SPAM settings don't block me out.

    i have to agree with you there, i spent £35 on a GX about a year ago, i didnt really think it would be up to much, how wrong could i have been?!
    gear box has some fantastic amp models and pre loaded tones plus plenty of scope to create you own, i have done a ton of recording with mine (more on the GX than a real amp in recent months if i'm honest!), plus the option to play along with mp3's and even slow them down has really helped me nail some tunes i was having problems with, i may even look into loading it onto one of my laptops and seeing if i can use it live!.....everyone should own something similar!!!
