POD HD 500 + iTunes through Skype?
on 2012-03-05 11:11:14
Might seem like a silly question, but this relates also to recording.
Atm my POD is running though the USB to my MacBook Pro, and i'm hearing the sound through my headphones. When I record, I have the input/output as the POD. Records the guitar well, however the song I'm playing, it doesn't hear it? same thing for Skype, Input/Output is the POD, they can hear only the guitar, but not the music? I thought the music coming out will come in to the Mac along with the guitar thus allowing people (and camera) to hear me. Is it possible to hear the music as well as the guitar?
Many thanks in advance,

From the Mac's perspective, the HD500 is its soundcard. The guitar is the input, and the background music is being played as output through the HD500's headphone jack. So what Skype is sending is the signal from the input of the soundcard, not the output.
If you can have separate input and output devices on the Mac, you should be able to make something work. If you use the Mac's soundcard as the output, and route that through the HD500's aux input, the person you're skyping with should hear both the guitar and background music. You'd just have to use a dual tone on the HD500 with the one tone being essential empty and the other one for your guitar. Other than that, you'd have to get some other sound card that enable multiple inputs, as described in this thread: http://line6.com/support/message/354244#354244
