    Hi Guys,

    I have posted on the Line 6 forum as well. Maybe someone here has experienced this before.

    I tried to re-amp using a real amp and my tone port UX8 with no success. All outputs from 3 to 8 (1 and 2 is for my monitors) produces extreme hum or "SHHHHHHHHHHHH" sound when plugging it into my Real guitar amp. I do not even have to send a signal through the output to produce this noise. As soon as the jack is connected the extreme "SHHHHH" starts.

    I have tried isolating the problem and found it must be the TonePort itself.

    I done the following tests:

    1) To eliminate the cable I plugged my guitar into the cable that goes to the amp - NO NOISE.
    I immediately unplugged my guitar and plugged it into the TonePort - NOISE

    2) I have switched off everything else e.g. Computer, Monitors. Only my tone TonePort was on. SAME NOISE.

    Does anyone have ANY other suggestions? I am at the point of getting rid of the TonePort.
    Another user experienced the exact same problem in this thread:

    Thanks in Advance.

    TonePort is a turd but you realise you need a Reamping box of some sort? You can't just send line level outputs into an instrument input and expect good results...

    I realise that :)

    But for now I have to live with it.
    I know that I need a re-amp box but it's pointless getting one if I can't re-amp in the first place.

    I am almost 100% sure that even with a re-amp box the extreme hum or hiss will still be there. Or would the re-amp box take it away?

    Thanks,
