I can't use the Mic input and Instrument inputs at the same time on a UX1. Any ideas?
by Danhassell91 on 2012-10-28 12:19:50

I've been using a Line 6 UX1 for a while now and I could never find a way of using both inputs together. Ideally I'd be able to get a stereo recording or a guitar and vocal at the same time.

I've been able to switch between using either the "Instrument" or the "Mic" input but the "Mic & Instrument" option in the Line 6 folder in the Control Panel has never worked for me. I don't know why.

I'm looking at getting a new interface but I thought I would attempt to solve this issue again before writing it off completely. Any thoughts would be helpful.

Also, the headphone jack doesnt work, I have always had to plug headphones into the jack on the speakers themselves.

I'm running Pro Tools 10 on a PC (Windows 7). I have also used this interface with Cubase 5 Essential, Studio One Artist/Professional and I have always had the same issue.

If you set it for Instrument & Mic - Instrument will be sends 1&2, mic will be sends 3&4.  Make sure that you've configured your recording software appropriately.

Not sure what your issues with the headphone output is.  Open up the POD Farm (or GearBox, or POD Farm 2) interface and make sure it isn't muted.

The only way you could work around this is to get a dual channel mixer and run it into the mic input.  The UX1 is a single channel only interface, which is why they designed the UX2, KB37, UX8, etc.  These products allow you to use two channels and record in stereo, and the UX8 allows for ... wait for it ... 8 inputs at the same time.  Sorry dude.

Hi,

I think the ux1 does allow 2 at once as BigChas has said. I have read another post that seems to suggest this.

Do you get any sound when you select mic and instrument?

You've probably tried this, but I just wondered if the following might be the solution. You may need to make a second tone line in pod farm. If you've got pod farm standalone, select a preset and then go into mixer view and then click on the button called 'Dual' and then click create empty tone. This will make pod farm allow two inputs. You can then change the first tone line to have the guitar effects and amp you want and add a mic preamp etc. (or whatever you wish for the mic), to the 2nd line. Select instrument in the first input box and mic1 in the second. (I am using a ux2 so I am not sure if these names are the same on the ux1). This should make guitar and mic work at the same time.

Its possible that the top line is the mic one and the bottom the guitar - I can't remember. IF you try both, you'll find out which it is.

God Bless,

David

Are you using Gearbox or POD Farm?

With a UX1 and GearBox, you may not be able to record mic & instrument simultaneously.

But with POD Farm you should be able to. With the older (red faced) TonePorts, you are eligible for POD Farm 1.12 (Standalone) for free.
