Just connect the shiny red Line 6 GuitarPortXT hardware to your Windows PC or Mac with the included USB cable and connect GuitarPort's stereo output to multimedia speakers, headphones, or your stereo. Then fire up the GuitarPort GearBox software, plug in your guitar and you're ready to jam!
GuitarPort features classic stompbox effects like delay, chorus, tremolo, flanger, reverb and more. Tweak to your heart's content, save as many variations as you want, or choose from Line 6's extensive library of ready to rock tones. From models based on classic stompboxes like the Fuzz Face, Tube Screamer, Phase 90, and Uni-Vibe,* GuitarPort is like having a whole rack system and custom pedal board living inside your computer.
GuitarPort also offers the ability to change the signal path of the effects for every tone. The reverbs, modulation effects, and delays can be routed either in front of the amp (pre) or after (post), so that chorus can be either a stompbox or a rack unit, depending on what you need.
GuitarPort Amps & Cabs
Line 6 invented digital modeling guitar amps and is the magic behind the guitar tones used on countless platinum albums.
Now, Line 6 brings that acclaimed tone technology from the greatest recording studios in the world to your desktop. GuitarPort's meticulously crafted recreations of a dream collection of 16 classic and modern guitar amplifiers coupled with two dozen cabinet options easily capture the range of tone found on the best guitar tracks ever recorded.
You can mix and match POD XT-quality amp and cab models based on Marshall, Fender, Mesa/Boogie, Vox, Roland, Soldano and more,* with controls laid out for a guitarist and not some computer geek. And the sound? The same dead-on classic tones used by hundreds of thousands of Line 6 users every day.
GuitarPort Tracks & Jam Tools
To put your great guitar tone to use, GuitarPort gives you an easy to use audio player that lets you jam along with MP3s, WAV files, or any audio CD in your personal collection. You can rip tracks, scan through the audio, jump to any point, loop sections, and even slow to half speed without changing pitch for careful study of your favorite lick.
Developing your technique is no longer a monotonous affair with GuitarPort's programmable metronome. In addition to standard click, it also offers a selection of kick, snare, and hi hat samples that let you construct your own drum patterns in phrases up to eight bars long. Using the slider control to set phrase length, you can easily build a practice groove in straight 4/4, or more complex odd-meter patterns, and the tempo dial spins your beats-per-minute setting anywhere from a ridiculously slow 15 BPM to an out-of-this-world prestissimo of 300!
Other useful tools that come standard with GuitarPort include an onboard digital tuner, an intelligent hum reducer for taming the noise from magnetic pickups.
With GuitarPort you can subscribe to GuitarPort Online (optional) and play along with the latest and greatest tracks, lessons, and licks. A subscription provides unlimited access to hundreds of tracks and lessons covering the greatest guitarists of all time-- from blues legends to metal shredders, jazz virtuosos to country pickers.

On a brand new mac, software and all, GuitarPort just informs you to continually restart your computer. I was also disappointed to learn that this product IS NOT AT ALL RECORDING SOFTWARE. Line 6 has continually let me down in the past, and it doesn't help that when I go to return this item, Guitar Center is going to charge me a 15% return fee for opening the box in order to figure out this product was worthless (fees can be avoided by not opening any products you buy from GC at all and just returning it without trying it out). Being tired of GC's poor customer satisfaction and Line 6's poor product satisfaction, I'm not contributing to either of these corporations any more. Being an instructor, not one of my students will hear anything good about the aforementioned company or product line that it sells.
I have owned a guitarport and now a toneport for 4 years now. This is simply the best deal there is in musical equipment. It is 24 bit, doubles as a sound card, and makes recording smooth. It works well with a standard microphone as well, although the toneport is the way to go if you use an XLR mic. Works well with Cakewalk, Garageband, and Ableton. I rarely write reviews, but Line 6 have to be lauded for this product.
This is a sweet little device. Put some head phones on and rock. Get the guitar port online subscription as well. Lots of great content(IMHO) for those of us who have put the guitar down for few years. The factory set tones are killer.
This little box has turned my laptop into a must have any time I pull out my guitar. I love the way I can use my computer for modelling any tone I want, or just looking up the sound I want and downloading it. I plug it directly into my amp through the headphone jack to get around using my weaker computer speakers. My only complaint is that I need to use an adaptor to plug into my amps input. They should have made a direct output just for this.
This is a very cool device. It plugs into the USB on your computer and provides you with a good selection of amps and effects. You can pretty much get any sound you want out of the Guitarport, which makes it very easy to record and create sounds and songs. I love this thing as it's super convenient for putting together little riffs I have running through my head. I can save onto my hard drive and make an mp3 and catalog it for later, or send to my friends for feedback. I don't even know how musicians survived before they had computers :)
