  1. Well I just watched a video on recording your guitar into a DAW and the person doing the demonstration said if you don't want to listen to all that dry, boring guitar sound while you are recording the dry track, you can just load an amp sim onto the track and that way you will still be recording the guitar dry, but in your headphones you will be hearing your guitar with amp distortion.
  2. There is another way I could record a dry track into Reaper. I have a Focusrite Scarlett interface. I have a feeling that has good converters in it. But the problem is I would be playing and listening to a completely dry and unprocessed guitar sound which might be tough for me to play the whole song that way.
  3. If I double-tracked my electric guitar then I believe that would be considered stereo. But otherwise it's considered mono if I'm not mistaken.
  4. Yes I think I have always recorded in Mono. I don't know what advantages there would be for me to record in Stereo. If you can name some please post.
  5. Well it worked. Maybe it's just my ear playing tricks on me but it seems that the sound quality of dry, unprocessed track that I laid down when I had my HD Pro X was a little better, than what my X3 is giving me. But when I think about it, that makes little sense. I figure a dry is a dry is a dry. I don't know why there would be a difference in quality between the two.
  6. Then after I arm two tracks in Reaper the little meter with the inputs shows up. I will set track 1 which is the wet, processed track to Tone 1 Left. Then I will set track 2 which is the dry track to Tone 1 Dry. I'll see what happens. If Mix L means a mixture of the wet, processed sound plus the dry, unprocessed sound I don't want that.
  7. Here is what I see in Reaper in Audio Inputs: ASIO Driver: ASIO POD X3 Enable Inputs: First: 1. Mix L 2. Mix R 3. Tone 1 L 4. Tone 1 R 5. Tone 2 L 6. Tone 2 R 7. Tone 1 Dry 8. Tone 2 Dry Last: 1. All 8 of these are identical to the above. I do not see anything that would allow me to choose 1 + 2 together (but I'm recording in mono too if that makes any difference). I will choose 1. Mix L and 7. Tone 1 Dry. I will report back the results.
  8. No I did not actually create a Tone 2 because you said in an earlier reply that it was not necessary because the X3 driver produces that automatically. So could I select as inputs 1. Mix L and then choose USB 7 also? I am wondering if I would get a better end result for plug-in processing if I actually made a Tone 2 let's say using a low gain amp like a Plexi and set it up so it's practically clean sounding, and then using that as my Tone 2, instead of not making a Tone 2 and just use the automatic processing that the X3 driver provides.
  9. Can you explain how I would do that? I remember you saying there is no need to make a Tone 2 because the X3's driver provides that directly. So when I was assigning inputs after arming two tracks, I chose Mix L for the wet track and I chose no. 8 Tone 2 dry for the dry track. I've kinda wondered what is meant by Mix L.
  10. No I'm not using both the X3 and the HD Pro X at the same time. I thought of the idea of adding an EQ on the dry track to brighten it up a little before adding my amp sim and it seemed to help. I'm getting a little better sound now.
  11. When I listen to the playback after recording both a wet and a dry track into Reaper, I mute the processed track and just listen to the clean, dry, unprocessed track. Then I compared it to the clean, unprocessed track that I earlier recorded using my POD HD Pro X. It seems to my ears that the dry track recorded with my POD HD Pro X sounds a little brighter which I kinda like. The dry, clean track that was recorded using my X3 sounds a bit darker and maybe a little more bassy. And my ML Sound Labs amp sim does not sound the same on both dry, clean tracks. How can I brighten up the dry, clean track a little? Or should I try making a Tone 2 on my X3 going through like say a Plexi a little bright maybe and record that into the dry, clean track in my DAW?
  12. I had forgotten that I posted a message on this topic earlier. I will re-read it and go from there.
  13. I'm thinking of going back to using my X3 and I would need to be able to send a wet, processed signal and at the same time send a dry, unprocessed signal into Reaper. The X3 can do that can't it?
  14. I got it going now. You have to use Line 6 Monkey to install the add-ons. Looks to be working fine now.
  15. Okay I found out that I can get the Peavey and the Marshall 2204 if I buy the Metal HD Model Pack. So I bought the Model Pack and followed the instructions. I had already installed the drivers and I installed the License Manager. I navigated to the Tools folder on my computer and ran the License Manager. I successfully authorized my computer but the License Manage told me I needed to go into my account and deauthorize a device if I wish to authorize this POD. So I deauthorized a device and ran the License Manager again and it said it was successful. It then said to shut off and turn back on any applications that use it. I turned off the POD and turned it back on along with HD Pro X Edit and looked for the Peavey and the Marshall 2204. Nope. They are still not showing up. What do I need to do?
