Comments about Peavey xPort USB Guitar Interface:

I bought this device due to the respect for Peavey.
But, unfortunately, I have had a strong hum noise when the volume of guitar is not at the maximum or very low.
I have used the cheap Bheringer Guitar Link UCG102 with better results.

    Comments about Peavey xPort USB Guitar Interface:

    So I'm noticing that all the negative reviews of this gadget are people still trying to use their Windows PC's to do any type of recording. The handy, easy to use Peavey XPort works without a hiccup on my Mac. Provides a boosted clean, usable signal to my recording software with no latency. It's easy to use, portable and bus powered. No more packing up my 4 track mixer when I want to go mobile. I can now use my analog mics (SM57 & 58) in place of my Snowball mic, which are more durable. I tried for years to build a Windows based digital audio workstation and nothing ever worked right.

    Look elsewhere

    Comments about Peavey xPort USB Guitar Interface:

    Seemed like a good idea until i tried to install the ASIO USB driver on my Win 7 Laptop. Windows will not allow the executable to write to the appropriate windows directory. OK Im not a PC savey guy so i figure its something simple but i tried changing permissions, took directory ownership, and installed as Administrator but No Joy!! WHAT REALLY BURNS IS I SENT 6 MESSAGES TO PEAVEY CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND NEVER GOT A REPLY!! Total waste of time...........sending it back.

    Unreliable. Returned it.

    By Matt Lake

    from Canton, OH

    Comments about Peavey xPort USB Guitar Interface:

    Bought this to do some quick, easy idea recording to my pc. First impression was it was cheaply made plastic. It worked ok for about 3 hours. First problem I had was getting a high pitched whining noise coming from my pc when this thing is plugged into it. It's not very loud, but you can definitely hear it. Does the same thing on all ports. I don't have any issues with any other USB devices. Second issue is, it started making a humming and crackling sound whenever I played my guitar through it. All the cables/speakers are good. Adjusting buffer and bit rates did nothing to help the issue. The only thing that helped was to turn the volume on the Xport almost all the way down and turn the monitors up. I'm not using the headphone jack either, it is from the line out port. I don't know why the line out is affected by the volume control, as it's supposed to be line out??? Oh well, had it four days and returned it. Not a reliable unit. Look elsewhere for something better unless you have money you're looking to throw away.

    Some nice features

    By Pantrax360

    Comments about Peavey xPort USB Guitar Interface:

    Can't say how it will work for someone actually playing a gig, but for a hobbyist, this is a nice piece of gear. Plus, if, like me, you already have other modelling software (I have Amplitube 2), it works very well with it.
    I like this, so far, It has a two big advantages over the Stealthplug, which I've had for about two years (and worn out). The first is you plug a guitar cable into it instead of plugging it directly into the guitar, which saves wear and tear on the interface, since guitar cables are designed to bang around, unlike the USB cord built into the Stealthplug. Second, it has both a headphone jack and a line out. That mean you can either set your software to feed your guitar's sound to a set of 'phones, or you can feed it out to another stereo or an amp (I've done this with a little protable stereo. I've yet to try this with my old Crate haven't got the adapter I need but I don't see why it won't work). Thus, if, like me, you like to play along with songs on iTunes, you can have the music coming out of your Mac's regular speakers (or, like me, a stereo hooked up to the Mac) and the guitar's sound coming out of another set of speakers. Much better than 'mixing' the sounds the way I had to do with the Stealthplug. Yes, that has a headphone jack, but I wouldn't want to try to do a line out and have two cords connected to my guitar.

    My one problem so far, feature-wise, is that the volume control sets the computer's volume, not the Xport's output.

    The driver for the Mac works with both 32 and 64 bit mode, so I'm guessing it's Lion (10.7) ready.
    Latency seem to be very low, and I think it may do a slightly better job of carrying my sound to the computer. The box is plastic, but solidly built, and the logo lights up when plugged in, which is helpful for letting you know if it's 'live' or not.

    I don't know how this would work for a serious player, but for a hobbyist like me, it's a great set-up.
    The unit itself is very nice, and at the current price is pretty equivalent to the StealthPlug. Be aware, thouigh, that while the Xport ships with Peavy's Revalver software as advertised, the app included isn't Revalver, or even Revalver HP (the 'lite' version of Revalver): it's Revalver HPse, a stunted version of that. You can upgrade to Revalver HP for $29.95. I don't know about the new software that comes with the Stealthplug, but what I got, Amplitube 2 Live, was a better deal than that.
