Beeping sound problem.
by kcruz32 on 2012-03-24 19:11:14

I Have a POD UX1 and have everything installed correctly, I know because I get signal in Reason 6 plus I can hear the bass guitar in the POD Farm. But I hear this beeping noise as soon as I open POD Farm, and I hear it to on the Reason playback. Can anyone tell me what seems to be the problem and how can I fix it? Thanks

Hi,

   Is it a kind of beep like a pc beep or is it more like interference? Is it possible that something is giving interference to your bass and/or the ux2/pc itself?

At my home I get a strange on off buzzing through electrical devices at the same time every day. Something is making our electrical wiring 'noisy', and one day I think we'll get an electrician in to see where the problem lies.

T'he interface, I have monitors, next to it, but I don't see how that can affect it. And it's a beeping noise like consistent, and sometimes the whole audio just comes out and in. i've only had the interface for like 3 days and still trying to get it to work, which sucks.

Hi again kcruz32,

    Just came across some websites talking about beeping. Maybe something like mentioned here:

http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/289139-constant-beeping.html

http://us.generation-nt.com/answer/source-beeping-help-160376841.html

Some people on these say likely usb problems and some others say different beeps can signify other problems. I noticed one person fixed their's by doing a system restore to an earlier restore point .

Can you post an audio clip of this beeping sound?

I'll post a video, the beeping stopped, now it just drops the audio, it used to do a beeping noise and drop the audio.

Thanks for the links, but I know it's not the computer because i've never experienced anything of that nature before I started using the interface. Thanks again.

These are the links where I show what happens with my bass guitar and the interface, it makes a weird noise and drops the audio. If you know what the problem is can you please tell me how to fix it. Thank You for your help

Thanks for the clips. They really allow me to see the problem. I'll have to have a think about that one.

Here is a message you have possibly read, but it has some suggestions about what to do if getting clicks (to me the one to look at maybe first is the buffer slider and bit depth and sample rate - you might have already done all of this though - forgive me if you have):

"1. Fill out your support profile at http://line6.com/account/supportprofile/    2. Ensure that you have tested all cables to make sure that they are not defective (USB, audio, etc.)    3. Ensure that you have all cables connections set up properly    4. Adjust the Buffer Slider in the Line 6 Audio MIDI Control Panel. (Windows Users: Start/All Programs/Line6/Tools/Audio-MIDI Devices; Mac Users: System Preferences/Other/Audio-MIDI Devices)    5. Adjust Sample Rates and Bit Depths in the Line 6 Audio MIDI Control Panel and ensure that the Sample Rates and Bit Depth settings in the Line 6 Audio MIDI Control Panel also match the project settings in your DAW/recording application    6. Ensure that you have the Line 6 device set up in your operating system as the main input/output device (sound card); disable internal sound card in your operating system’s Device Manager control panel    7. Ensure that your Line 6 USB Device is not connected to a powered USB hub; direct USB ports are required and please try ALL available direct USB ports during the troubleshooting process    8. Remove all non-essential USB peripherals from the computer (not the mouse or keyboard)    9. Disable any wireless cards on computer in Device Manager    10. Set Power Schemes on computer in Control Panel (PC Only) to Always On    11. There are also several other tips and optimizations you can make on your PC. Please refer to the following document for more information:    http://line6.com/data/l/0a06007213339477ea0690cb2a/application/pdf/GearBox%203.5%20and%20later%20Windows%20XP%20&%20Vista%20Audio%20Tips%20&%20Optimizations%20(Rev%20A)%20-%20English.pdf"

I wrote the following originally, but now think it seems maybe more likely to be buffer/s.rate first.

"The first thing that comes to my mind is some voltage change going on. I don't know much about voltage though at all and so don't really know what would do it. I am thinking possibly the usb is sending different voltage or? to the ux1. Someone tell me if I am on the right track here. I think I read someone recently suggest a problem might be to do with voltage. I am trying to think when I have heard that kind of sound. I think it might have been when I used to mess about with my guitar and tried plugging it into a little 2 mic/line in mixer - one of those old tape  recorders that came with sliders on it but wasn't a 4 track or anything like that. There was a song I used to like playing along to and I found that the distortion created by plugging straight into it was just the sound I wanted for it.

Actually, I don't think it was that. I think it was when I tried plugging into an old stereo system's amp. The speakers didn't exactly match the amp but I think it was also that stereos aren't built for the sudden fluctuations of an un-mixed guitar.

Just re-watched your 2nd clip. Its not quite what I had. Sorry.

Just a question. When you had the reason audio track selected, and it was clicking on off on off, you had only hit the string and let it ring hadn't you? i.e. it wasn't just when you hit the string again.

Anyone else know what the cause of this could be?"

Hopefully its just an issue with the buffer and maybe other things running taking  cpu power.

God Bless,

David

Just for clarification, when you run the latest version of Monkey you have green ticks for drivers/firmware?

I assume your bass straight into an amp has no problem?

Is there any difference with the laptop plugged in or running off of just the battery?

Can you try this on a different computer?

Also, here is a USB troubleshooting guide, hulbert covered some of what's in here already.

+1 to Triryche.

Please answer his questions as they are good things to check when experiencing this strange issue.

To me the issue sounds like it could be related to the bass output jack, possible some sort of interference from the pick ups/electronics.

I would suggest to try using a new cable and another instrument to test, or a mic to see what results you get.
