Is There A Way I Can Stop Hearing My Guitar Sound? (hd 500 Volume Problem)recording volume problem
Posted 22 September 2013 - 02:43 PM
I posted a topic a few days ago that I could hear my guitar sound from the background even though any musical software isn't running.
I got a reply that it is supposed to be like that, but then it's uncomfortable for me for someone who's been using other audio interfaces like UX1.
The problem is that when I play a song and try to record (while playing the song I want to cover at the same time) at Cubase, if I can hear my guitar sound without enabling the monitoring button, then I get the product with too low volume after rendering (I can't even hear anything).
What I mean is that if I don't monitor my guitar sound while being recorded, I won't know what the volume of my recording is.
so.. is there a way I can stop hearing my guitar sound at the back any time?? at least when Cubase is running?
Please help me with it again

How are your speakers/monitors connected? Have you experimented with using the +18db boost available in the Line 6 Audio-MIDI Devices control panel settings?

I didn't use the 18db boost (cuz I believe it distorts the original tone, doesn't it????)
but then thanks to your post, I lowered the hardware monitor volume in the LINE 6 Audio-MIDI Devices control panel setting and the original problem is now fixed
however, can you reply it back to me more about +18db boost? It seems useful but then when I used it in my previous computer, I got the right volume, but then the tone seemed to change (in a way it's different from when the volume was low).

It is generally used to compensate for, or match with, outboard equipment (computer, DAW, ...) whose usb inputs are somehow 'quieter', whatever that means . There's no right or wrong about it - use it if you find it helpful, otherwise don't use it.
