Thanks for the reply, Triryche
I am almost sure that I have done it, but I'll go to that house and re-check that UX2 is selected as the sound recording and playback device in both Windows and SoundForge. It plays through the headphones but doesn't monitor through them.
Newer versions of SoundForge have a "Monitor" checkbox on the recording window, but mine (7.0) doesn't. Can it be related to hardware monitoring that UX2 supports, or should it work without it?

there is usually a tonedirect monitoring knob that affects some monitoring... but its mostly a configuration setup on your DAW and sometimes having monitoring enabled on your specific tracks as well...

Well, here's what I have.
In Contol Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices -> Audio:
Default playback device: UX2
Default recording device: UX2
In Sound Forge 7.0:
Options -> Preferences -> Wave:
Still no monitoring, which makes trying things out, positioning the mike(s) e.t.c. an annoying task.

Are you launching POD Farm standalone (not the plug-in within Sound Forge)?
In Sound Forge for record and playback does it indicate ASIO?
I would contact Line6 directly via a support ticket or call:

Oooops [red face]
I didn't mention that but I am not using POD Farm. I am recording live unprocessed sound through two mikes. Don't think ASIO is mentioned in the SoundForge settings.

I've never used Soundforge 7.0 but I have used 8 and 10. You are correct that when you set up your audio device that you must perform a self test and determine your latency etc... when you arm for record, a separate window pops up and should display the faux LED bars. If you can see these levels then you know you are able to direct monitor (which is what you want to do). As you mentioned, there should be a check box in the window at the bottom left to feed that signal back to your output bus (whether that is your monitors or headphones). By default this box is unchecked but should be there to check.
If you do not see this box, check your soundcard setup in Soundforge, it doesn't matter if the card is ASIO or any other type of card, your hardware should be able to reroute the direct signal back to the output bus. I remember a card I had back in the 90s that i had to physically route with an external cable but that was several generations of technology ago and I would be shocked if the UX2 abondoned this feature.
Anyone owner's confirm that direct monitoring is possible with the UX2?
Also can you please list the other hardware you are using? i.e laptop, pc, version of windows etc... it will help to funnel down the possibilities.

The LED bars are displayed and work, and I use them to adjust the input levels on the preamp.
Attached are my settings (hoping that more is better than less).
I'll try SoundForge 8.0.Attachments:

You would need to launch POD Farm to monitor the inputs.
Or you can try turning on "Monitoring" in SF (make be called something different) but it will likely introduce latency.
The recording will not have latency, just the monitoring.
