    Hx Stomp Aux in

    You’re right. I tried just listening to music by itself in the headphones and the volume can get quite high. I guess that the problem is simply that I adjusted the volume in all my patches to use them with my iPad (which is still louder than my iPhone, but that’s probably just obvious) and therefore the guitar sounds so much louder than the backing track...

    Hx Stomp Aux in

    Oh! I see! Thanks for the suggestion. I had not thought about that! Still, I would like to know if the relatively low volume from my phone connected to aux in is ”normal”, so to speak.

    Hx Stomp Aux in

    When I connect to my pc through usb all is fine. I was just curious to know if an aux in connection would have better volume if I used another device than my iphone. Is it a matter of impedance or is there a secret setting I missed?

    Hx Stomp Aux in

    Hi! I have connected my iphone to the Hx Stomp’s aux in. The volume seems a bit low. When I use the iPad I perceive an improvement. Is it due to impedance? Is the issue related to the strength of the signal coming from my phone?
  5. This is sort of reassuring, although I would obviously prefer that the problem got fixed. As far as I can read, it occurs on other members of the HX family, which would support the suspicion that it is the result of some kind of glitch in the software.
  6. I bought my Hx Stomp about six months ago and have used it daily. Yesterday I turned the Stomp on and got no sound. I turned it off and on again and it went back to normal. The preset that loaded up was one that I had downloaded and slightly modified, but it had not given me any issues before. I guess that the most likely explanation is a software glitch of some kind. Have you experienced something similar? Should I worry about a hardware failure?
  7. This happened to me yesterday for the first time (I bought the device about six months ago). I turned the Stomp on and got no sound. I turned it off and on again and it went back to normal. I use stock power supply. The most likely explanation is a software glitch of some kind.
  8. I don’t see how that would be possible...
  9. I have now been exploring the hx stomp for almost a month. I am truly impressed. More than impressed, actually. The HX Stomp is the bedroom player’s nirvana. It is a truly incredible gateway to so many tones and sonic possibilities. It has reinforced my interest for the finer aspects of sculpting sounds. Great job, Line6!
  10. Thanks! After a more careful comparison I realize that the difference in noise isn't really there. However, I still wonder if there is some global setting that would reduce noise when the simulated distortion pedals are engaged. A noise gate does obviously solve the issue, but it's not a global setting.
  11. Hi! Today I tried connecting my hx stomp to the aux in of my thr10 using a Y cable (two mono 1/4 inch jacks to a 1/8 inch jack) the result was, however, quite a bit noisier than when I use my headphones whenever some distortion was engaged. Is the difference between headphones and thr speaker normal? Is there some way to handle the noise beyond using a noise gate with every preset? I have tried changing the output level from instrument to line with little effect. EDIT: After a more careful comparison I don't think that there is a great difference between the headphones and the THr10. The noise gate solves the problem. I wonder, however, if there is some global setting I missed that would reduce noise when modelled distortion pedals are engaged.
  12. In the latter case I would need a Y cable with two 1/4 inch TS jacks and 1 1/8 inch one, right?
  13. I resurrect this thread just for a clarification. I just bought and HX Stomp and I own a THR10. To use the latter as a speaker for the stomp, should I connect the L Mono OUT of the Stomp to the Aux In of the THR, right? I am not supposed to use the headphones out?
  14. Thanks for the replies! Very useful!
  15. Hi! What speaker would you recommend for an hx stomp user playing at home? The alternatives that fit my budget are a Headrush Frfr 108 or one single JBL 308P. I aim at putting either of those on a desk about 10-15 cm from a wall. Which alternative is best? Are there other options to consider?
