GX, the Lowest Noise for the Clearest Recordings
GX boasts the lowest noise for recording guitar, 12dB more dynamic range than similar interfaces, for clear and dynamic recordings. Plus, exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect™ monitoring virtually eliminates latency allowing you to record with amp and effect modeling and without sacrificing tone or feel.
Compact and powerful, GX features a 1/4-inch guitar input that allows for an immediate and no-nonsense recording experience.
Public Service Announcement: Latency Kills.
Recording with latency is like driving with your eyes closed. Exclusive to Line 6, ToneDirect monitoring allows you to record and monitor a fully processed tone while virtually eliminating latency and taking all the guesswork out of recording great-sounding tracks.
What’s latency? Latency is the delay caused by the time it takes your guitar signal to travel all the way through your hardware interface, through your computer’s processor, through your plug-in software, back through your hardware interface and out of your speakers or headphones. This delay is heard in your monitoring signal and makes recording almost impossible. With a POD Studio GX interface, latency is something you’ll never have to deal with.
