Controling instrument input level without POD farm
by RobG1986 on 2010-03-25 03:35:27

In cubase I get a very stable low latency input with low latency monitoring without POD farm running, however obviously there is no way the control the input level of an instrument input. When I use POD farm to control the intrument level there is intermittent crackling on the recording, probably cos of strain on my computers resources, even when I reduce buffer size and other settings this crackling is still present. So I was windering if there any way of modifying the intrument level without using POD farm? Because other then the peaking, everything works very smoothly in cubase.

It's probably worth mentioning I don't get this problem when using POD farm by itself, no problems there at all, just seems to be when the 2 memory intensive programs are combined.

Hello,

In your first post, were you launching POD Farm as a Plug-In (insert) effect inside of Cubase? Or were you launching it in standalone mode (to adjust gain) outside of Cubase first, then launching Cubase?

Regards,

I've been using it as standalone not a plug-in, wasn't aware there was one. I assume you supposed to use it as a plug-in when using recording programs then? Ta.

No, the plug-in is best used as a post recording effect to reamp a dry track.  Using the stand-alone is still the best way I know to adjust the instrument input.  L6Perry wasn't answering your question, he was asking one to determine what procedures you are following in  order to get a handle on what may be causing your issue.

Yeah I didn't think he was giving a definitve answer. Does the plug in pretty much have all the same features and layout of the stand alone program? I imagine it's as memory intensive running POD farm as a stand alone program anyway right?

Since the plug-in's primary use is as a post process recording FX, there are a couple of things missing, namely, the tuner and the mixer.  Other than those, they are the same.

Ah cool, alot of plug ins for entire programs seem to just be a convinient way of getting to them rather then having god knows how many background programs running behind your recording software.
