An update that is kind of bad news and hoping I at least get some feedback from Line 6 which I will share if I do. I really have grown to love the HX however for my use, this is a big miss. Line 6 advertises this as an interface specifically to work with the iPad but that’s not really accurate unfortunately. I suspect anyone who uses an iPad would say GarageBand IOS is the standard Daw for it (although there are plenty of 3rd party ones that seem to work). As a heavy Mac user, I really need to use GB as it allows cloud storage and I can just open from my MacBook Pro and keep working on the file, really that’s my main workflow. For a lot of reasons other than the HX I bought the brand new iPad Pro yesterday ( also greatly hoping it would work with GB on iOS). Long story short, exact same issue and the HX will not record although it is recognized. As previously mentioned, exact same settings work on an iPhone 8 so really puzzling.
i can use the iPad and GB fine with my Apogee interfaces so this has to be fixable and appears to be an HX Stomp issue with GarageBand on iPad plain and simple. I opened a ticket with Line 6 and will update if I hear anything but cmon, either fix this L6 or stop misleading people by promoting it as a device that works with iPads because it doesn’t work with iPads native daw.
