  1. Hi there, I use my POD HD 500 as sound interface and it's been a few weeks I'm experiencing this issue: by no apparent reason the sound goes off and the only way I've found to fix this is to restart the computer (I tried disabling / re-enabling the POD as an audio interface, unplugging and plugging it again, both power and USB, nothing happens). If i'm listening to something in Youtube or Winamp, the player stops and can't play further, but strangely, if I'm working in Reaper (using ASIO drivers), I can still play things normally inside it. I have no clue why this is happening, it's the same Windows install for a while, although I'm guessing it's something to do with some recent Windows update maybe. Is there anybody else having this problem? My specs: POD HD 500 Windows 10 Pro x64 AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 4 Gb RAM ddr3 1600 Asus m4a89td GeForce 260GTX 1Tb HD* All drivers / softwares / firmware are up-to-date in Line6 Monkey. * I have only 5Gb left in my Windows partition, need to fix this, but I don't really see how this can cause the audio problem Thanks in advance
  2. I'm sorry I was checking the wrong place (properties of Line6 Playback/Recording device) !! Just done what you said and it's working just fine again !! I was so worried it could be a bigger problem, thank you very much !!!!!!
  3. Hey there, I finally checked it again, same thing... about the properties, I checked the "hear this device" checkbox, then I can listen to my guitar but with latency (the signal goes to the PC and then comes back to the device). With this option unchecked I still can't hear anything. The hardware monitor level is at max, and I couldn't find no option for send levels or +18db either. The thing is, when it's connected to my PC, it's like the sound that used to come from the POD is off, and the only thing I can get is the "processed" signal (that goes to the PC first, and then comes back to the POD, or any other playback device I select).
  4. Thanks for your reply, I'll check those settings in a minute and reply here, but, as for the monitor level, I remember I used the POD's outputs without checking this option, even because when I checked this before, I got doubled sound from my guitar - the original output and the computer's monitoring, which btw has a little latency, whereas the POD's output had no latency at all. I tried to check monitoring option yesterday and got this very saturated sound. But I'll make some more tests in a minute and reply here!
  5. It's a separate issue. This blue screen appears when the POD is suddenly disconnected and the device is being used as a soundcard. I'm not very sure about what causes this, maybe something with the driver (that's updated), but it's not virus or the OS for sure. I'll try to search for this but I'm pretty sure this new issue isn't related to this blue screen, as I've always used my POD with no further problems. I'm desperate with this, I'm in process of pre production of my album to be recorded in studio in January and this will really be a problem.. Anyway, I need to solve this sound problem first.... Thanks for your reply.
  6. Hey there Please can anybody help me? I was always using my POD HD 500 normally with USB and Reaper and everything, but today I'm having this issue: when POD is not plugged in the PC I can hear my guitar normally through Unbalanced Output and headphones, but when I plug it into my PC, sounds goes off in those outputs. I can hear PC's sounds normally, and Reaper is getting signal from it, but very distorted. If I unplug the USB, the sound comes back (despite my PC gets a blue screen, but I've had this issue before when unplugging the USB, and no problems with sound). My PC is a Sony Vaio VGN-FW460J with Windows 10, not sure if it's a problem with it tho. I'm hoping this is not a big issue, I'm depending a lot of my POD for these days!! Any help is welcome, thanks!
