1) I didn't buy the XPort here in the end (turned out the seller was out of stock). I got it from Park Music instead (who were great).
2) When I first installed the drivers on the supplied CD it didn't work but when I uninstalled the software again and then installed the last version of the XPort drivers from the Peavey website everything worked perfectly.
3) Don't get fooled into thinking you only have the demo version of the Revalver HPse software. There's a registration code on the CD which actives it (to be fair it does say this in the instructions, I just didn't read them properly).
4) The version of Revalver (HPse) which comes free with the XPort only has models for two of their amplifiers (The ValveKing and the 3120) plus a bunch of pedals and speaker cabinets but it's more than enough for starters and sounded absolutely incredible to me. If you want more then you can upgrade (via the Peavey website) to the HP version for $29.99.
5) The amplified sound comes out of the headphone socket on the XPort, not the headphone socket on your computer.
The sound quality is clear, there is little to no latency issues and is easy to Install as well as set up. The "Peavy" logo lights up white to indicate it's connected which adds to it's already stylish appearance. The downside is that the recording volume is quite loud, and there is no level switch for the guitar output - even the cheaper £15 interface previously mentioned had one. The only solution you have is to turn the volume down on your guitar.
I haven't tried the ReValver software, I use Guitar Rig 5, so can't comment on that. But it is disappointing that the Reaper software included is only the evaluation edition. I personally recommend picking up another program called "StageLight: Linkin Park Edition" for around £10.
Even with the negatives, I recommend this for home and demo recording. I'll still give it 5/5.
I had 'latency' problems at first - because I hadn't set it up properly and opted for 'direct sound'....my fault completely.
As soon as I installed it properly (only took minutes) the latency (delay from hitting the note to actually hearing it) was gone - and the possibilities endless!
Although I already have Overloud, the Xport comes with Peavey's own ReValver package - and there are some great tones to be had - in fact I find myself using it more than Overloud!
All in all, this is typical Peavey top quality and great value for money - for just over £30 it's fantastic - and I highly recommend it guitarists everywhere!
The sound is also quite impressive. It was like I had just put new strings on: Crisp and defined. Being made for guitar it really picks up the full signal and it all gets converted - unlike with the guitar link.
You also get ReValverHP SE guitar effects which is limited to11 patches (mostly heavy distorion) but they are pretty good in themselves and you get the free, unlimited Reaper DAW to try. I use Reaper and bought my licence years ago so I know my way around and would recommend it as other DAWs cost an arm and a leg.
Also the Peavey logo lights up when in use. What's not to like?
To sum up:
It's super cheap (mine was £39)
Excellent sound with ZERO latency.
Super quick to setup
Unlike the Pick of destiny it doesn't make you play better.
I just WISH I'd got one of these damed things ages ago...
It was very annoying but all it needed was an update on the ASIO4ALL drivers and a replacement of the Revalver software version.
It's a shame that Peavey does not have that info clear on their website or anywhere, you can actually see a number of posts on their forum of people having this problem and without a solution for it.
Apart from that, I'me very happy with the product, the sound is clean, very responsive and the Revalver has some really cool amps. It also works with with Amplitube but the amps on Revalver sound cleaner.

It records your guitar into a computer quite well, can't fault it there. It lights up when plugged in which is a nice touch and instantly tells you it is working. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Mike Tree
