Studio Gx stopped working. Help?
on 2010-01-04 21:10:29
I was playing guitar with my Studio GX. The Studio GX has been perfect to me until now. I usually run the GX through my guitar amplifier for a better sound (Peavy Vypyr 75). In the middle of my playing I hear a pop, and then a static noise. Since then, the Studio GX hasn't been working at all. I updated everything, replugged everything, and nothing seems to work. (In case you think it's the amp thats the problem, it's not, It works just fine without the Studio GX). When I try play its either quiet (if you turn my amp knob to like 7 you can SLIGHTLY hear the guitar, and a lot of buzz) or it has a loud static noise (depends on the preset I'm on). A lot of poppin' going around. I tried using this on my other computer, which is a "HP Pavilion Quad core" and it doesn't work on that computer either; same problem. It's such a shame that this isn't working, it's a really great product. Unfortunatly I can't even return it or exchange it either, so I just wasted 120 bucks for 2 weeks of playing.... Help!!

The Studio GX only has a 3.5 mm jack, so you must be using an adapter cable. Have you set the GX as your soundcard and tried just using a pair of headphones to see if there is a difference?
If you cannot get the unit to work correctly and it was purchased new, you should contact SF marketing (Canadian distribution) @ 800.363.8855 to arrange a replacement.

The adapter cable doesn't make a difference, I tried to record it without the cable connecting to the amplifier, and it still didn't work, its just static when you hear it recorded. Also, when I open up PodFarm, I can see that the guitar sound level is unusually high (the green bars at the top right of PodFarm). I noticed that problems with these types of products occur with AMD computers too...weird.
