  1. Hey Thanks for the reply! Garageband is nice, I use it as well. I have been taking tutorials for Reaper and am confident I could wrap my head around it. I'm starting to think I will need an audio interface and more basic knowledge of sound and routing for the pod. I have read online that people have also been using the pod as an interface and getting no sound. I figured out how to get sound but now the sound it really distorted and undesirable. Also seems like their is a latency problem..the metronome slows down?
  2. P.S. I meant to mention earlier... I am using Reaper and I get a signal but there's no sound. Could it be the Pod HD pro has taken over all my sound (via 2 "1/4 TRS from unbalanced outs to studio monitors) and that's why I can't hear it? Or is this just a dry signal and I need to do something else with my current setup? I have two tracks and I am getting a signal in both. If anyone could shed some light on all this as well, I'd really appreciate it!
  3. Hey, I just had a few questions about USB recording if anyone can help me. I am fairly new to this so go easy on me. How do I record with the pod hd pro while live monitoring my guitar play using only a USB cable and studio monitors? I am also using the pod as an interface and have the unbalanced outputs for L and R going to the studio monitors. I was thinking I use the SPDIF and go into my line in input on the side of my Mac to record a wet signal but I am not sure. I have recorded guitar using only a usb cable before and I can't for the life of me remember how I did it. I am a college student and just now getting back into the art. I have no solid understanding about a wet or dry signal or SPDIF. Any knowledge about these will help because I have a feeling that it has something to do with the aforementioned or something about a 'dual-amp preset' or 'dual tone'? Any information will help me a ton!
  4. *********UPDATE************ Hey, I just had to keep turning off the Pod HD Pro and restart it as well as HD Pro Edit. After a few times, I am now able to stay connected and send and receive presets. This is great! Feels good to have my pod back. Using it as a paperweight is no fun. Although everything is still working fine, I just had one final concern... I have two USB ports. They both seem to work the same but they have had different effects with my Pod and the software. Like one port works fine (for now) and then I decide to switch for some reason with my IR sensor ( for my wireless mouse, theres something I must plug in to a usb port) then my computer crashed. The pod had trouble reading again with v0.0 usb firmware. After my laptop restarted, I restarted the Pod then everything worked fine. Maybe my USB ports have different capacities? Or something supernatural is happening to my macbook? ( who knows) Thanks again!
  5. Hey, chalky65 Did you try to recalibrate your FBV Shortboard when you re-flashed? If not, I'd try to hold the right nav button as you power up and have your Mk II plugged in via the FBV plug. See what it says. Here's the latest Manual for the L6 Pod HD Pro, this may be useful.
  6. Hey, Brazzy I meant to get back to you a day earlier, I got pretty busy. Great news, everything has been successfully updated to the latest software and everything works without it restarting now! Global parameters reset after flash memory update and the USB firmware doesn't go to v1.0 immediately after turning it on but as soon as I plug it up, It'll recognize it in normal mode and shortly change from v0.0 v1.0 every time I have restarted so far. You have guided me through this process and I really appreciate it! I wouldn't have gotten this far without your help. Definitely saved me tons of hair I would've pulled out if I had tried this on my own haha. My only issue now is Pod HD Pro Edit is failing at receiving my presets from the pod. I have attached a photo of what it is showing. I have not even loaded any new presets on it since I deleted everything a few days ago so why it would have a problem receiving the patches worries me... What if this develops into a bigger problem, I wonder. I have a few presets I saved on my computer that I want to jam with and I have not tried loading them yet but since I am getting that error, I have a feeling it won't work. Any ideas on that? *Error code image link: http://i.imgur.com/xXrWEFw.png
  7. I've already opened two lol one pointed me to local repair and the other offer an RMA number to send back to L6 for repairs. Seeing as it's out of warranty, I'll likely be going to a local dealer; cheaper too. I'll have to be very careful because I don't know if I downgrade or upgrade something, will that help or negatively impact me? Seems we both have hard our troubles. I could try downgrading the drivers because I have the latest and it's not working correctly. If the drivers aren't the problem what else could it be?
  8. Whoops, sorry. Here are the attachments mentioned in the earlier message. note: in case the photos don't show, go here: http://i.imgur.com/dval3zx.png http://i.imgur.com/KPUdsif.png
  9. Hi, Brazzy I just installed flash memory v2.10 and installed Pod HD Pro edit 2.21. That was a file with the drivers, hd edit and a couple other items. I just selected them all and installed them. I also deleted all my previous presets (unfortunately but no sweat). The Pod seems to have stopped restarting on its own but the USB fw still read v0.0 and can only be detected in aafe mode. And HD edit doesn't work and I think that may be because I have a version of edit that is not compatible with my version of whatever. It read v1.0 for the short period after I installed the v2.10 flash memory and I was scared to restart it after that. and you know, right after I restarted again, the usb fw changed but it stopped restarting...I don't know where to continue now. I have installed the drivers many times but as my attachments says, I have installed them according to my Mac but L6 monkey can't detect it for some reason? This is probably a hint as to why the usb fw went back to v0.0 or just a sad joke courtesy of my pod. Any ideas from this point? Thanks.
  10. Hi, Brazzy Yeah, it is. It has me wanting to pull my hair out because I just got EZ Drummer and I now can't record guitar tracks because of that. :( I just tried flipping it on while holding the left nag button after dispelling the voltage but still read v0.0 usb firmware and restarted a few seconds later. Is there anything I could do while in safe mode? Thanks!
  11. Hi, I am trying to find any help possible for my Pod HD Pro. It just keeps restarting on its own and hardly connects via USB because of the updates! If this helps, the USB firmware read v0.0 and the flash memory firmware v.2.02. A new problem occurred; to have deleted USB firmware from the Pod itself... I've never known of that happening. This all happened AFTER I updated everything (L6 Monkey, drivers, Pod HD Pro Edit and Flash Memory) and then went downhill from the moment my pod failed to restart after updating and clashing with garageband and my mac audio drivers. That may have had an impact somehow because a notification came up after that and I can not longer update as I get a strange error code when I try to connect it. A link to the error code is in another post I made -> http://line6.com/support/topic/4578-pod-hd-pro-updating-failed/ Anyway I have tried updating/reinstalling/downgrading the Pod Hd Pro edit, drivers, L6 Monkey and the flash memory with nothing working. I have tried holding all directions on the directional pad and starting up. Up stutters for a second then starts but shortly will restart. If I hold down and start up, it read "flash update" in safe mode. It can be detected in this mode by my Macbook Pro but I can't use it in this state...maybe if I could install firmware in this state, it could work. I have tried hold right, nothing happens and if I hold left, it shows the menu of items that could be checked. This mode isn't useful as it looks as if it thinks everything is working fine. (obviously not!) So right is not useful. The only hope I have had was I just kept messing around in safe mode (down arrow at start-up) and after a while I restarted it and somehow the USB firmware went to v1.0 instead of v0.0. It actually had a preset selected for about 30 minutes but I did not move anything because I thought I'd lose it! Sure enough, I had to be sure the problem has passed, I restarted the pod but starting up normally and went to the menu and it read v0.0 again! (terrible, I know) I have contacted L6 tech support and reps have pointed me to local repair shops as they do not have an immediate solution to the problem. I no longer have hope that this Pod will work without being 'repaired' but I am still looking for help. If anyone knows a solution or have faced a similar problem before, please let me know! :)
  12. Hey, my Pod HD pro just had an update failed error message reading error code 80007104. failed to update firmware. Pod HD Pro Edit, Flash memory, drivers, and Monkey has the latest updates. It worked fine before the updates. What should I do? Also the Pro Edit was clashing with garageband on my mac with OSX 10.9 mavericks.
