Overview

The Line 6 TonePort KB37 is from the award-winning TonePort family of USB recording and modeling audio interfaces from Line 6. With it you can record your guitar and vocals with renowned Line 6 sound and add a few choice keyboard parts to top off your compositions. The TonePort KB37 gives you 37 full-sized synth-action keys, pitch/mod wheels, assignable transport controls, an expression pedal input, and the same dual footswitch jacks as the UX2 for control of effect on/off, tone select, tap tempo, and other parameters as well as sustain, start/stop, and punch in for your MIDI/music recording software.

18 guitar and five bass amp/cab models; 30 stompbox and studio effects; and six high-end studio microphone preamp models deliver professional Line 6 sound to all your recordings. You can record through two mic inputs (with 48V phantom power), a guitar/bass input, and stereo line inputs. Other I/O includes a S/PDIF out, TRS line outputs, TRS monitor input, and independent headphone jack. It also gives you assignable VU meters and selectable 16- or 24-bit recording at 44.1, 48, or 96kHz. A real breakthrough is the Tone Direct™ monitoring, which lets you hear the signal with full Line 6 processing and zero latency. And all of it is now compatible with Macintoshes as well as PCs.

This thing is sweet

By A Heartthrob in Disguise

from Hollywood FL

I bought this thing for the 24/96 and the MIDI keyboard. I didn't think I was going to use the guitar and bass models, but they're something else. I recorded a simple funk/rock groove with Addictive Drums and the KB37's keyboard, and added a bass line and 2 guitars. NO FIDDLING WITH EQ INSERTS. Just pan one guitar a bit left and one a bit right, and EVERYTHING FELL INTO PLACE! An old-school type from the days of tape told me that if you get all your levels right, you shouldn't have to do much in the mix at all. The guitar had punch but didn't muddy the bass and stayed back in the mix like it was supposed to. The bass had boom but didn't crowd the kick. This thing is awesome and the models are sooooo versatile. Not to mention you can put 2 footswitches and an exp pedal into it. Only con: haven't quite figured out how to set up the transport controls yet.

A great addition to the home studio!

By Mike Hall

from McPherson, KS

The KB37 has been a marvelous addition to my home recording studio. The GearBox software is positively brilliant, the USB interface sounds clean and clear, and the keyboard is surprisingly playable. Personally, I found the bundled-in Ableton software to be clumsy and crude, but that's irrelevant...the KB37 will work with other recording software, so you can choose for yourself if Ableton isn't your cup of tea. Be advised that the KB37 doesn't come with virtual instruments; if you're new to MIDI, know that if you want to use the keyboard (and your recording software of choice doesn't include virtual instruments) you'll need to get some. The bottom line is that the KB37 is a terrific piece of gear that opens a million creative doors for the home recorder on a budget. I've even used this thing as an interface for my drum mixer!

Can't beat the price for the capability!

By Bob

from Fairfax

Good build-quality. Midi-controller works seamlessly with Cubase and Garageband. Up and recording in less than an hour out of the box. Gearbox is versatile and guitar effects sound great. I strongly recommend the KB37 for the small at-home studio.

Good piece of equipment

By MusicFortheMasses

from Corona, CA

I got the KB37 after reading a lot of reviews, which said both good and bad. For someone who wants a home recording studio via PC, it works great. I would say don't upgrade the ableton to version 6 until they work out all the bugs, I did and it stutters a lot. A problem I did not find with the version 5 that came with the product.

just ok

By rossincasper

from Casper, WY

This product just wasn't for me. I returned it after finding it isn't a true 24/96 platform. It is incompatable with Acid Pro 6. It is hard to figure out how to use, no written manual. And is not the easiest setup. Pretty flimsy. Don't reccomend for a interface with a DAW.
