My brother sent me a link to this review. Has anybody here tried this box? I'd like to see some comments, because I'm thinking this may be worth getting.

I've read up on it and I like it. Just you have to suscribe to guitarport.com to get the full effect. It automatically gives your ax the tone of any song they have in thier archive which to is good because you feel better about playing when you sound exactly like the greats. They have tab and back up music that you can play with. I'd say its worth buying if you want to use the sound Hendrix uses on Purple Haze

It's an interesting concept. I'd always be a little sceptical though. I'd be interested to hear form anyone who's tried it, and see how it works out for them.

You think so?

hmm.. i would rather prefer to have a very unique tone that is typical for ME than sounding like someone else. There are enough clones out there already.

I had one and sold it.

It was OK however you are tied to the computer and line6 pull there classic wheedle for as much moolah as they can, trying to sell you a subscription to the guitar port online services. The services are OK however I think they should be free to owners of the Guitar port.

If you buy a Podxt you get a guitar port for free and you can take it away from the computer and plug it into your guitar amp.

The sounds are nice but also limited by the sound card / speakers / headphones you have hooked up to your computer.

It is quite a cool learning tool however that also requires the whole on line subscription.

I would go with the PODxt, because with it, you have access to anything related to guitarport, plus you can hook it up to whatever you want to rock through.

All the physical guitar port is, is a direct box that takes your guitar's signal and sends it to the computer via usb.
