POD 2.0 ==> PC
on 2012-08-14 05:51:32
Hi. Yes, I know, it looks like it was here thousands of times, I've ready it but still can't connect my recently bought old POD 2.0 (the one with PEDAL mark) to my PC.
Now, I play guitar ocacsionally only, I have never used such sophisticated tool like POD before, never had any expirience with any MIDI devices before, and I don't have sound enginiering degree.
All I want it to do is to push some presets, or patches downloaded from Line6 Custometone to my POD 2.0 ( I should have buy one of POD pocket really...). That's it.
I have bought that cable MIDI to USB, and it's driver seams to be installed corectly.
Now, when I launch Line6 Edit it doesn't find my POD. All cables are connected. I have tried to plug MIDI cables in all ways, IN-IN OUT-OUT and IN-OUT OUT-IN.
Have tried different USB ports in my PC (BTW it is Windows 7 64bit machine with intel i7 and 16GB of RAM)
That MIDI - USB cable has something in the middle, with three LED's. When I plug cable to PC a LED above MIDI lights up, but no matter what I do, LEDs for IN and OUT are always off.
So, what shoul I do. My POD dosn't come up in MIDI devices, when I hit 'add' a new window pops out 'add device' with options:
MIDI IN PORT: USB2.0-MIDI
MIDI OUT PORT: Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth
DEVICE: plenty to choose from, along with them POD 2.0
No matter what I choose here my POD picture always comes up wit yelow question mark on it, and I have no connection.
Please can someone tell me what I am doing wrong here?
Thanks for any help.
That is my adapter and its LEDs
