  1. Yeah, I'd love to have proper documentation from line6, so this could be cleared up. I'd have no problem ignoring the DSP completly and getting 192khz or at least 96khz. 4 channel 24/96khz would be fine by me. But does it work like that? In my experience there are subtle differences between 24/48 in contrast to 24/88 or higher. I mainly use a PC with a dedicated HiFi card playing different kinds of formats up to 24/192. Those can be recordings of vinyl for example. This article lays it out quite nicely: https://www.whathifi.com/advice/high-resolution-audio-everything-you-need-to-know
  2. I see. Oh man, the documentation Line 6 provides is terrible... I guess that will remain a mystery. Thanks for your help!
  3. Where can I read up on the 48kHz clock of the FX Stomp?
  4. Is it so that you can record four signals dry simultaniously at 192khz and as soon as you use the DSP effects it gets rendered down to 48khz?
  5. I've read/skimmed through the manual in german and checked the interesting passages in the english manual. Just as a little feedback: I do prefer the more formal in depth style that I remember of the HD500. Unfortunately I couldn't get any information that is as detailed as what is discussed in this thread. Any advice where I can get more in deth documentation?
  6. Hey digital_igloo thanks for your input (No pun intended). I see your point and the information you've provided is interesting to me. Does this mean I can record 4 inputs at once at 24/192 as long as they stay dry? I need to read the manual more closely. I think what line 6 offers as a product with HX Stomp is excellent regardless. I had many discussions in my life about the "pointless nature" of HiFi systems that have a "higher frequency range than the ear can hear", how "mp3 files capture all a human can precieve" or that the quality of CD is the standard and anymore detail wouldn't make a difference. In my personal experience listening to masters in 24/48, 24/88, 24/96 and 24/192 I found masters in 24/88 or above tend to be more "gripping" to me. Of course there is fluctuation in quality regardless of this factor, this is subjective, anecdotal and might very well be a case of the placebo effect, but in the end I feel more comfortable working with 24/96. In any case, when I invest in a product like this I like to know what it can do. So the latency is not an issue due to direct monitoring. I can record for channels at 24/48 for sure. Is it posssible to record 4 dry signals at 24/96 or even 192? I will take a closer look at the manual.
  7. Oh, now I get it! This answers all questions for me. Thats really too bad, 48khz is not going to cut it for me. The HX Stomp is a great product, as far as I can tell but this renders it useless as a main interface for more serious audio production. But such a package for that price maybe is asking too much. Thread can be closed now, as far as I am conserned. Thanks for the advice. It's been very helpful!
  8. Okay, but at least I now know that I can record four inputs at once. Hopefully someone else will chime in an clear up this aspect.
  9. Thank you guys, for your help so far. It seems to be a bit more complicated than I initinally thought, so I'm going to explain my situation in closer detail. But first of all: Will the driver resampling to 96khz cause any other issues besides what can be fixed by direct monitoring? I like the HX Stomp, cause it could come in handy as a backup in a live setting. My studio work is mostly recording one guitar or one mic. I do, however, need to be able to use multiple mics (up to 4 would be enough) in certain situation. I use my own external channel strips and preamps, therefore I don't need any inbuilt preamps. Before my purchase, I need to understand how flexible in this sense I will be using the HX Stomp, as well as understanding what the shortcomings of the driver resampling to 96khz are. I had a POD HD500(until it failed on me sadly) and with that I had issues. Whatever I recorded ended up being a bit late in the mix so I always needed to readjust to have the timing right. If I'm not mistaken that also was 24bit/96khz. Is this to be expected with the HX Stomp as well?
  10. Oh, that's a shame. But doesn't the HX Stomp has a direct monitoring option, that would allow me to record two channels with the HX effects and direct monitoring + two dry signals (without direct monitoring?) at 24bit/96khz? Is there any other downside to the driver resampling other than latency in monitoring? Thanks for the replies btw!
  11. So would it be possible to record two guitars with effects and a stereo synthesizer dry at once (4 inputs simultaneously at 96khz/24bit)?
  12. EDIT: The title has been retroactively changed, because the nature of the topic has changed. What has been established so far is that 4 channel recording at 24bit/96khz is possible, but only with driver resampling. The question now is whether there is any other downside to the driver resampling other than latency in monitoring (which could be fixed by direct monitoring)? Hey guys, I'm considering buying a HX Stomp as my main audio interface. What's unclear to me is how many sources I can record simultaneously at 96khz/24bit. For example, can I record two wet (with helix effects) guitar signals and two stereo synthesizers (6 inputs in total), with that quality? Best regards
  13. Solved: It was the usb-cable I've used. It was way too long (over 5 meters I believe). With a 1 meter cable the result drasticly changed. Now I need to get a new USB cable, because I need about 1,5-2 Meters at least. Quality is quite important for me. Is there something I should be aware of buying a new cable?
  14. I recorded the headphone out of my POD into my PC-audio-card, so you can hear what's going on: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1OWoMZqT1yp
