Hi folks

 

I am thinking about updating my X3 live but need to know how many simultaneous tracks you can record via USB with the HD500X.

I heard the HD500 couldn't do wet/dry at once.

I downloaded every manual on the L6 site but nothing details this at all which makes me think no.

Can anyone confirm or deny?

 

Cheers

 

Tim

just the stereo track (wet)

however, you can be clever and create a tone with two mono tracks one wet and one dry if you need to.

i personally use a different interface, and you can record the SPDIF dry, 

this way i have a fallback track if i want to re-amp etc... but still record the full HD stereo track while performing.

That is very disappointing to hear.

With my current setup I go from the X3 into a MacBook Pro via USB and record up to 8 tracks at once. With no other interface needed.

I need to record a dry track and wet tracks at once. How would I do this without having to buy another interface?

Is there some trick to do this as the Mac does not have a SPDIF input. My Mac book Pro is a 2012 model.

 

I find this weird for Line 6 to go backward with a new model. Can anyone at Line 6 comment?

 

Cheers for your time Mr Real Zap

you can set it up as part of your patch... dry tone L and wet R for instance...

But they will both be mono? Is that correct?
