I have recently installed a brand new MacMini (2.6Ghz CPU, 16GB RAM) and worked on a couple of mixes with POD Farm 2.55 with the UX1 set as an output device only in Logic 9. I used the POD Farm plugin for the dry guitar signals and everything worked like a charm.
However, I wanted to record some additional guitar tracks in the very same project, so I set up the UX1 as an input device as well. As a result, I'm getting a lot of noise and feedback from the guitar signal. So much, that it's impossible to record a clean track. I have activated the noise gate/s and it doesn't help at all. Turning them off makes it worse, though.
The weird thing is, I also tried the standalone version of POD Farm 2.55 with the very same presets and the problem doesn't occur. So in Logic, I tried to bypass the only other plugin on the track (an EQ) and muted all the other tracks apart from the one that I use with POD Farm. The problem remains the same.
Also, as soon as I set up the UX1 as an input device, it maxes out one of the cores of my CPU, so it is constantly in the red.
I hope someone can help with this, because I need to work with those units/plugins. I record music for a living, so this needs to be figured out.
Thanks in advance!
