I've been using Reaper for years on a Mac without much of a problem. However, recently I switched over to a PC and I'm having trouble getting my POD HD500x's output to come through the computer built in output. It was very easy on a Mac, but I'm having trouble making it happen on WIndows 10. I don't want the audio to output to the POD, I want to hear it through the speakers.

Are you using the ASIO drivers?

Yes I am. Should I be using something else?

Most likely since the POD is being seen as your audio device it's being defaulted for both input and output.  You can change the default playback device through the control panel audio devices and select the computer audio device as your playback device.

There is a setting within the pod ASIO driver in Reaper's Audio settings that will allow you to switch the HD500 Audio Monitor to OFF, which it will output only the processed reaper sound. Remember that you will be getting some audio latency though, the amount of latency is dependent to what hardware and software you are using.

I would have given you a step by step instructions but I am not near my computer.
Hope this helps you.

Here is my first attempt on creating a patch for "Another Brick On The Wall".

Ok so I changed the playback to my speakers and I was able to make all the audio play through there... except for Reaper's. In other words, I can play itunes and hear it through my computers output but Reaper's recordings or monitoring does not play at all. Anybody know how to fix this? I never had this problem with my macbook.

 

 

Update: Ok so I went to audio setting>Recording>Line 6 pod>>listen Then I checked the "listen to this device" box, then I selected my speakers in the dropdown menu.

 

This allows me to monitor my playing through the computer. However there are 2 problems:

 

1. Terrible latency

2. I still can't hear something that has been recorded.

 

Any solutions?
