Hi. I experimented with plugging the POD X3 direct into my imac via an Apogee duet's instrument inputs (1/4"), and recording using Logic. What I find is that while I'm monitoring through my near field monitors (channel armed for recording, input monitoring on), the sound I hear coming out of those speakers is not the same sound I hear coming out of the very same AFTER I've recorded. It makes no sense to me. . .I find a preset I like, record it, play it back, and for some reason it's just different. The recorded track lacks definition. It sort of sounds like a guitar, but muffled, if that make any sense. I can't figure out why, on the same system, and going directly in, it would sound different before recording than after. Any preset I try has the same basic issue.
Anyone heard of this before? Ideas? Thanks.
