    Cubase Help

    So, I found out that device tab is now called Studio tab, uggg anyway, I thought this would be great, easy and fun, but it is literally so complicated I am stressed. What if you arent a recording engineer? I just want a simple program, I want to select, new project, then record and then go, when I am done hit stop, save and move on with my life, why is this so hard!!??

    Cubase Help

    Well I figured out that devices is now Studio, I got that part. I was able to actually get it to record somehow, I really do not know how or what to do with it now or how to save it, etc.. This thing is very complicated, isn't there a super simple version for idiots like me that just want to press record and then save? Matt
  4. I am going to buy an audio interface so that I can record guitar parts on my laptop using my line 6 Spider V and my Laptop running Win 10. My question is, will a single input unit work or do I need to buy a unit with at least 2 xlr ports? I have never used one, I read and understand I need to get one to record properly, even if I just want to capture my guitar stuff, so I looked at a bunch and I am just not sure if I order a unit with only 1 xlr connection I think I will be ok for what I want to do, but since I dont know much about these things and havent used one before I just wanted to ask before I bought one. I literally just want to be able to set up then record my guitar work from time to time so I dont forget ideas I am working on. I noticed some units have 1, 2, 3, 4, xlr inputs, and I guess if I were going to run a complicated multi source recording I could see the need for other inputs, but I am 99% sure for what I want to do a single xlr unit will suffice, can anyone reassure me about that? Thanks Matt

    Cubase Help

    I am having a very simialr problem but I havent even gotten this far. I was hoping that I could record direct via the usb to my laptop but from everything I am finding you need either an adapter for the xlr cable of a mic or an audio interface and a real mic. I also thought that since the Spider V has xlr outs, I could maybe use those with an adapter to usb to capture the guitar parts?? But if not, what is the least expensive audio interface to buy and set up for use with cube base le and win 10 on a laptop and the Spider V?? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help. Matt

    Spider V Speakers?

    Well, I use the 240hc both with and without a cabinet, I use a Mesa Boogie road King 2, 4x12 cabinet with half open tuned back, it sounds amazing. I also use it as it is, and run xlr's to the board and that too sounds great at shows, the little speakers in the head are great for practicing or writing, but when you connect a cabinet to the head the speakers go from full range to high frequency and add color to your amps output, they also allow you to plug in and play an acoustic guitar, which is pretty neat. Those little speakers are handy when dialing in tones, I took my head home and connected it to my pc and then used the remote app to set it up, which was great. But when I got back to my studio with the head I found that I still had to tweak it a bit going from the little built in speakers to my 12" speakers that I had to dial down the treb a little and pull out some mids, otherwise it was pretty close. I would pair the head with the best 4x12 you can afford to get your hands on. My experience has been those line 6 cabs arent what you want, I wont bash them, but you do get what you pay for, I went with a line 6 4x12 once, then had to go to a Marshall 1960B 4x12 until I shook them to pieces, then I went with Mesa.

    Cube base

    I bought the Spider V 240hc in February it came with Steinberg le or something, I went today to try and set it up for the first time, it needs an activation code. Where do I get this code? Thanks for any help. Matt

    cloud tones

    I was able to fix it and now the app works perfectly on my Android S5 I just had to un-install it , then re install it now it works as it should. Just run the compatibility test then if your device has the ability to do it, try the un-installing.

    Spider V WoW

    I did set up the comp for the boost, it isnt quite the same and it does change the tone, but it works, it is either that or make a louder duplicate patch and just put it in bank 2, of the 4 bank section. I like to have my main rhythm in 1, then a softer version in 2, for punching into clean channel songs with a distortion but faint, I leave 3 open and in 4 I have my clean tone, so I have room to add one more and I can just put in a 3rd volume so 1 loud, 2 less, 3 soft, 4 clean and that way in some patches where I use a compressor I still have a boost available. I am still experimenting, todday I got pretty close to a great tone, now just a little more tweaking and dialing at vol to make sure it translates.

    Trying to emulate a Mesa Boogie all tube head

    Well after grabbing some cloud pre set patches and looking at them, I was able to direct my attention to a single amp that really helped me get going in the right direction. modeling amps always get me close to break down mode before I find what I am looking for, but I think that is my anxiety more than the amp. Once I found the amp I was trying to emulate, things got a ton easier and with a little patience I know I can get this amp so sound exactly as I need it to. I was overwhelmed by the number of environmental factors that you can adjust. Something I found, if you want to run the xlr's out in mono or stereo to the board, you have to use the cab emulator, obviously I just hadnt thought of that, sometimes my cab sounds a lot better without that and so I think live at times I might opt for 2 mics over the xlr's Anyway very cool amp when you start to get your tones working.

    Using Android Spider Remote

    I got the otg cable I can connect and see my patches and edit them, etc.,. but I can not load any tones from the clouds, as soon as I try, I get "Error loading tone" I was able to sit there and sift through them for about an hour once, but now I cant even load them, what is going on?

    cloud tones

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did get it set up, and as long as I look at cloud tones, I can press edit and then copy the settings down to a pad and paper, and then go back and manually enter them, thats fun. At least I can access the cloud patches and then put them in, so my app and phone works, and does everything except download patches; Also somehow I did manage to download one patch and it is in "my tones" I am not sure how that happened or how to do that again, I cant seem to get anywhere with the cloud patches otherwise.
