2.0 out of 5 stars Such promise but....., 11 Sep 2010
This review is from: Line 6 Pod Studio Kb37 (Electronics)
This should be a great product and it may be. Unfortunately it has no instructions and is supplied with four separate and complicated third party software products. The learning process is overwhelming for anyone not already familiar with advanced use of music software and associated files and hardware connections. To be a five star product it should have dedicated stand alone software and good step by step instructions. Possibly even a 'from scratch' video tutorial.
I haven't got time to hunt down info needed to learn how to use this and it will most likely stay in a cupboard until it's obselete.
To sum up - A promising item let down by lack of backup. Sorry - Not recommended.

I recommend buying a copy of "Computer Music" magazine. It always comes with a DVD full of stuff including its own standalone multitrack recording software and complete tutorials for beginners (repeated in full in each issue) which will provide you with a logical framework for working with all modern PC or Mac-based recording software and how it works with soundcards and USB interfaces. It is really worth learning the basics of modern computer-based recording if you are going to spend money on nice USB interfaces like this. I got my first big PC setup in 2003 and I spent more time learning and troubleshooting than I did making music. 7 years later, even though I only ever use Cubase on PC I can log on to any type of computer and any software and be working in minutes. It is a steep curve to begin with but it gets easier and more intuitive, and when that happens your technical IT self goes into autopilot and allows your creative musical self to explore the possibilities of the technology.
Otherwise it's back to the Portastudio and the Atari ST with you!

(NB I don't work for CM magazine and I don't own this product - though I wish I did - I just buy it for the free samples and plugins)
