GearBox plug-in bundles
Line 6 today released its GearBox plug-in Silver and Gold bundles at the Summer NAMM convention. Designed for computer-based musicians who record guitar, bass, and vocals, the GearBox plug-in bundles deliver tone from POD xt and vintage effects in a flexible software plug-in format. Both packages feature Mac AU and PC VST plug-in support and a USB guitar interface, as well as Line 6 ToneDirect monitoring. The bundles include a collection of professionally programmed presets, and presets created during the recording process are easily imported into other Line 6 products. The Silver bundle ($420) offers a hand-picked model selection, while the Gold bundle ($700) delivers a comprehensive array. Both packages include the TonePort DI USB guitar interface, and are compatible with most popular recording programs. RTAS support is also planned for the summer 2007, according to Line 6.
