Said product is now £199, don't know for how long but it looks like a great bargain. I am currently using a Line 6 UX2 and while I think it's ok for jamming along with tunes and getting ideas down, I've since started to do some serious tracking and I'm not too happy with the results. I'm up to speed with all the advice about recording DIs but when I compare them to the raw DIs people are kind enough to donate to the forum mine sound like crap when I re amp, (you can hear the results below on the Soundcloud embedded signature) ... the usual story that we read on here many times over. Therefore I'm seriously thinking about getting the Forte and now a question, is the Forte a step up from the UX2 in terms of pre amps/DA AD converters and listening sound quality? Thank you.
