POD Farm 2

Post by minerman » Tue Mar 30, 2010 9:20 am

Looks like Line 6 is trying to keep up with other software companies as of late, they've gave a free 12 fx update for the POD X3 Live owners (I think trying to compensate for the USB dropout issue....), & now POD Farm 2. I feel kinda sorry for the UX1 & UX2 owners, the "regular" POD Farm 2 is $50, & the "Platinum" is a whopping $250.......BUT X3 owners get the "Platinum" PF2 for free.....New features are unlimited configuration of effects (IE you can put any effect in any place in the signal chain, a feature I've been wanting since using PF1...), & MIDI control....

I'll wait for the price to drop to $20, which is about all I'm willing to pay. It would be nice to add a mic preamp after the mic on the guitar amp. That's a feature I've wanted for a while. But not enough to shell out $50.

I don't know - I just went through the whole list on the Line 6 site, and the Platinum was $250 for every version of the X3 that I found there. Do you have inside info?

Apparently it's changed from today around 11:00 am, when I go to the same link now, it says $50/$250......Not gonna go there, my X3L already has the USB dropout issue, no way I'm giving 'em another $250 for the same fx I already have....It would be nice to re-arrange the fx chain order, or just use say, an amp head, but again, not gonna give 'em $250....I'll just keep what I've got....

I thought the Pod Farm 2 software was free (That's what Dave Chick indicated).

I hate Pod Farm anyway and I'm just glad my Gearbox is still working.

Sorry, didn't elaborate - you can download it for a trial period and then purchase the upgrade...

It was free for a few hours, before I left for work the day it came out. When I got in that night, it had changed....I'm still debating whether to upgrade or not....

In my monkey it says this:

If you activated POD Farm on or after October 1st 2009, you are eligible for a FREE POD Farm 2 license. POD Farm owners who activated POD Farm before October 1st 2009 may be eligible for a discounted POD Farm 2 license (limited 30 Day promotion expires 4/30/10).


I am trying to remember when I bought this thing as I may get it for free????

I just try to get one decent distorted "brown" sound to use for everything. Can't understand why anything more is needed. :lol: ...I really don't see the point.
I'm quite happy with the latest Line6 tone I'm using but it may be some time before I can share it. :roll: I'd hate to post the config without first posting a song using it (the song is totally done but nothing is recorded yet, lol). It's similar to the 1970-Something config tonally only much "hotter"/more distorted, and yet, when playing a sus2 or sus4 you can hear every note.

I know this is an old post but to update, I bought my Pod Studio UX2 two weeks ago and on the box it said "Free Pod Farm 2 Upgrade". When I installed the monkey, it was on the list of included upgrades, so I DLd it. It's pretty cool, but I'm not an electric guitar dude like alot of you cats. I also DLed Gear Box. There's a few pretty decent vocal patches in there. My favorite setting for vocals is "90s Alternative" with "Brite Room" reverb.

Nothing on mine about a "free trial" but I bought it way after 10/1/2009, so I guess I get to keep it.

Guess I've gotten sucked into finding the "Holy Grail" of amp sim tones Lee, & to be honest, Line 6 is really hard to beat. I've tried just about every amp sim out there (Amplitube (2, 3, Jimi Hendrix, Live, Metal, X-Gear, Fender), Softube's Vintage & Metal Amp Room, Vandal (Magix), Revalver MKIII, ACME Bar Gig, LePou, iZotope Trash, Steinberg Warp, Kuassa, Guitar Rig 3 & 4, TSE, Simulanalog, Nick Crow, basically everything except for Overloud TH1 & Waves GTR3 (I did try the GTR Solo, but didn't care much for it), & that's just the guitar amps, tried almost as many bass amp sims..... :lol: :lol: :lol:
Although some of the amp sims I mentioned sound more "real" to me (Revalver, Amplitube 3, & Vintage Amp Room), I keep going back to Line 6, again, I think their stuff is great. I use an ART Tube pre between my guitar & interface now too, & that seems to help the sound a little... It would be cool to trade patches, whenever you get your song recorded....Sorry, I know you posted this a while back, been really busy with work... :nuts:

If POD Farm 2 ran one time & you didn't get the "No Authorized Device" message, you should be good to go JB..... You can use the fx for your keyboards, drums, bass, or whatever too....

I'd like to see what your settings on the amp/cab/fx are Lee, you've got me curious. I always liked your guitar tones, & personally thought they sounded very, very good. I know a lot of the tone comes from the player/guitar/strings, but again, I'd like to compare your settings to what I usually use. When I first started with the HD8, I searched the forum & used some settings you posted as a starting point for some of my tones. If I remember, you were using the ENGL amp in the HD... :metal:

I'd def go for the UX2 ... I have that one, much more flexible, you can record a guitar and vocal at the same time (dual XLR inputs) The major differences between the UX1 and UX2
phantom power and the number of inputs.

The UX2 is more versatile and definitely worth the extra money over the UX1

ux2 has:
- 2 XLR inputs
- phantom power
- 1 normal & 1 pad 1/4" instrument inputs
- 2 front VU meters
- 2 line inputs
- 2 footswitch inputs
- 1 RCA Digital out
- 1 stereo monitor input
- headphone output
- 2 analog outputs
- 2 output controls (1 for headphones, 1 for the analog outputs)

ux1 has:
- 1 XLR input
- 1 1/4" instrument input
- 2 line inputs
- 1 stereo monitor input
- headphone output
- 2 analog outputs
- 1 output control
