PODxtLive/Gearbox signal routing for recording/re-amping in protools
by GenevaView on 2012-10-26 04:17:39

Ok, I am entirely confused. I've read everything from the Gearbox manual to various Gearbox threads. I understand that the Gearbox plug-in has been dumped for the new POD Farm ones, but can I still use the Gearbox stand alone application for re-amping/recording in ProTools? In the Gearbox manual, it states that my PODxt Live can be used for re-amping without the use of plug-ins. ie: the 4 options given for the Record/Send 1-2 signal routing in the MIDI devices tab.

Is this possible still, in any way? I just want to be able to record/re-amp in protools. Also, if it's possible to do this still, I don't really understand the 'sound card' options they go over. I want to be able to use my Maudio interface as the sound card and monitor there. How is that done without making the POD the sound card? Which way is better? Am I even asking the right questions????

Any and ALL advice and instruction is needed. Thank you!!!!

Also, what are the benefits of the POD Farm plug-in over the previous Gearbox stand alone app? (not the gearbox plug-in) Thanks

You can not reamp via USB without making the PODxt your soundcard.

One of the advantages of the plug-in is you can record the dry signal while you monitor the wet, and add the plug-in with limitless tweakability (post processing).

Also, with POD Farm you get daul tones.

Cool, thank you. Now, can I change from the POD to my Maudio interface during a protools session, after I have recorded/re-amped my guitar tracks? Do I need to change the soundcard option in my pc and in protools, or just protools? Thanks.

You should be able to select your soundcard in PT (assume it is not disabled in Windows).

I am not using PT, but I can change between different soundcards/interfaces in Reaper without have to go to the Window's audio devices/control panel.
