Best way to record and monitor with pod x3 pro?
by lhellgren on 2011-08-28 13:06:33

Hi,

I have Cubase, MR 816 soundcard and Pod x3 pro.

1. As I understand the best way to record is to go through

the usb port and use the line6 asio, as decribed in Gearbox

recording setup guide. Is this correct?

2. If I do this (above, number 1) the only way to monitor (without latency) is to use

the headphone at Pod x3 pro. My speaker are connected to MR 816.

If I should record more than 1 person (e.g.2 guitars) at the same time how should I

do so all people can monitor the sound?

3. As I have understand the only way to solve (number 2) this issue is to use MR 816

asio and record through the analog output (Studio direct out and unprocessed out) at

pod x3 rear panel. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance!

Lars

Use the X3 Pro as your "ASIO soundcard or Audio Interface". Connect your powered monitor speakers to the output jacks on the back of your X3 Pro for basic tracking of guitars, etc.

 

After you have recorded all your tracks and are ready to mixdown or choose to use the MR 816 soundcard, you can disconnect the X3 Pro and reconfigure your software to use the other sound device at your discretion.

Ok,

But this was not an answer I had hoped for for.

I can not (I do not want to) connect and disconnect my speakers

between 2 devices every time we record different track. Every things

goes through (except el. guitars and pod3) the mr816.

How should I solve/connect this?

See my details question above.

Thanks,

Lars

Hey lhellgren,

You can easily use a headphone splitter cable that will allow you to output the headphone signal of the X3 to more than one set of headphones.

It will be a 1/4" stereo to multiple female 1/4" stereo outputs or 1/8" stereo outputs.

Reference the link below for examples:

The other solution would be use a external headphone amp box that you connect to the headphone output on the X3 Pro. This will allow to connect multiple headphones to the POD X3's headphone output, control the overall volume and the individual volume being sent to each pair of headphones.

Thanks,

Now I understand better.

In this way I could use an xlr speaker Y cable from Pod X3& MR 816 in to my amp speaker

as well, or what do you think?

When I switch to pod x3 asio I got no latency sound out from my speaker.

Regards,

Lars

Hey lhellgren,

If your amp has XLR inputs then I don't see why you couldn't, although I would not recommend it.

For the best audio results you should only use one audio interface at a time, so that there is not the possibility for the two to playback out of sync.
