They simply told you what was possible with this gear. Period.

 

If you really believe that, you must have missed the part where people tried to convince me a not-really-dry signal would suffice for my purposes.

 

Here's something you didn't know about professional audio engineers: most of us don't know whether the Line 6 POD HD can send a dry signal over USB. Most of us give relatively little thought to the POD HD.

And this why I think you already knew the answer to begin with.

 

Something's wrong with your thinking then, but you knew that when you took a simple issue and made it your platform to give speeches about your theories on how everyone should make music.

well... the HD Pro and HD PRO X both have direct analogue out....

but most audio engineers have a SPDIF input somewhere, or else it's worthwhile to get one...

that and you can use an ABY switch at the input if you need to....

using the USB out of a pod as the sole interface doesn't seem very audio engineer like to me... especially if you plan on giving it so little thought.

 

if analog dry over usb was a concern/factor in some decision... the answer is No... so why beat up others on the forum... clear as a bell...no gray area.

Well fabulous.  Except I gave you the straight up answer in post 3.  No sugar coating, no cajoling and no bull.  I can read and had no problem understanding people's intent here.  It's good you are a professional audio engineer I guess, but your people skills are so miniscule, an electron tunneling microscope would have trouble locating them.  Frankly at this point, I wouldn't walk across the street to lollipop on you if you were on fire.

Those are all good questions concerning the sample rates I've tried 16 and 24 and as far as I can tell they both sound good for what I do with them, but I'm always open for learning about these things.

 

It's like this: If you have 16-bit and 24-bit versions of the same thing, and you play them on your speakers, you probably will not hear a difference. But if you process them heavily, adding distortion and other FX, you will hear a big difference in the results. If you start with 16 bits and process it heavily, the results will include tons of noise.

 

This is why just listening isn't always a good way to decide whether something is right for your purposes, and the math underlying the sound is important.

... most audio engineers have a SPDIF input somewhere, or else it's worthwhile to get one...

 

I'm one of the audio engineers who has had no recent use for SPDIF, but I still have every need for high-fidelity audio processing; so now you know that not all audio engineers have SPDIF.

 

 

... using the USB out of a pod as the sole interface doesn't seem very audio engineer like to me... 

 

Really, and why does it seem that way to you? I was trained here:

I've worked for Intel and Creative Labs. Were Stanford, Intel, and Creative Labs all mistaken to consider me an audio engineer, since I don't have SPDIF? What do you know about audio engineering that Stanford, Intel, and Creative Labs don't know?

I'm not going to get into a member measuring contest with you... 

you need to quit assuming that noone here knows anything....

(we all have our strengths etc... and i have a resume as well...)

ok... so you don't have SPDIF....

guess what... i think you've identified a need for it.

I hope you got some good info out of all this, but in hindsight I think you should warn people of the level of education you have so you don't wind up with people like me (amateur) trying to help you (put it in a signature or in your posts). Even if I strayed off the topic a bit you should be able to exclude the info that doesn't concern you and keep going on the straight and narrow especially considering your education on the subject. You could probably help many people with the knowledge you have. I even apologized in public. I will try not to give opinionated examples in the future.

 

Thanks for the info about the differences of 16 and 24 bit samples. It's much appreciated.

I mostly play at home  and am always having fun learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not. Lastly I'm not a salesman, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here.

Probably a good idea, so why did you try to start with this:

and I think some people here should put in their sig-line that when they say 'dry' they don't really mean dry.
