    has anybody used the onboard MIDI of the P4B266? i've got the midisport usb 1X1 because i thought that was all i would need. as it turns out the midi out on the line6 POD's doesn't seem to work like a midi thru. i'm going to try and contact line6 support on this. but in the meantime i would like to be able to edit pathches on these units without unplugging $*^t to do it and i was hoping not to have to by another interface. if the onboard midi interface works well then it might be the solution. any opinions?

    oboard MIDI? Huh? There aint no on baord MIDI!!!!
    Only thing you can do is get the game port adapter for the on board sound...that aint too good tho..(nice english huh? lol)
    I reccomend the USB MIDI devices over the onboard sound card via the game port anyday!!

    But for using the Pod ONLY, the gameport will do just fine. Its just through midi cables that the pod communicates with the compter interface..Soundiver or Patchwizard.
    Line 6 has already acknowledged that the Pod unit's midi out does not act as a thru. Its highly unlikely there will be any change in this. They're concentrating more on newer -better things like the Vetta for example.

    thanks for the info Keith. perhaps i'll just make the investment and get an interface with more than one port. piss poor engineering on Line6's part though.

    Opus are you making fun of my grammer,,, or the lack thereof?

    Dan..no, making fun of myself....lol
    The onboard MIDI port is fine I'm sure for certain things but I've seen weird things happen with that type of interface in which makes me not want to go that route ever again!
