Main :: POD X3

Pod X3 Pro + Pod Farm
by samclarke666 on 2011-12-29 16:06:17

Hi all

I bought a Pod X3 pro off a friend, which came with the ful version of Pod farm, platinum i believe.

I want to use pod farm in my DAW as a VST, i've done this before when i had a UX1 a long time ago, but my question is, how do i get pod farm to work standalone with the X3 pro? at the moment when i have PF open, the sound's coming out of the pod aswell as through pod farm in my DAW, i'd like to just use PF, so i can save presets, and i prefer the interface. Is there a way to disable the X3 from playing and just use it as an interface, for recording purposes?

Hope that makes sense!

Thanks in advance

Generally you can't use POD Farm with POD X3 in standalone mode.

What I would do - try to lower volume on POD X3 pro of your patch and use POD Farm sound. This should work i think.

Actually, you can use the POD X3 as the interface in POD Farm 2.51.  I'm assuming that's the version you are using.

What you need to do is first disable the hardware monitoring so that you do not hear the processing from the POD itself.  This can be changed within the Line 6 Audio-MIDI devices utility in your computer's control panel.  Go to the Inputs & Recording tab and turn down the POD X3 Hardware monitor level.  Then, in POD Farm 2.51's preferences for hardware, select Record inputs 7/8 from the POD X3 Pro.  In doing so, this will send a dry signal into POD Farm 2.51 and you will only hear the processed signal of POD Farm.
