  1. I'm having trouble with a buzzing sound on my HD 500. On a clean setting, it's more of a hiss, but once you turn on distortion, it's more of a buzz (or buzz kill, as the case may be!). It seems like a grounding issue with the device. No matter where I'm playing--at home, in the rehearsal studio, or at gigs--it's the same thing. This leads me to think it's not a problem with the quality of the electricity. I play through a few different amps, from tube to solid state, depending on the situation. Always the same problem. Also, I still get it using different guitars--Les Paul or Strat, it's the same thing. The buzzing is worse when I have the USB cable connected. It's also worse when I use distortion--the more distortion, the worse it is. I was doing some searches on this, and I see that other people have similar problems. I've tried re-setting the global settings, but no joy. I'm using the 1/4" input. Anyone have any ideas?
  2. Hello, and thanks for taking the time to read this. While recording with my POD HD500, I have noticed an issue with some kind of digital static. It's usually not a big deal when I am playing, but when I allow my guitar to ring out (typically at the end of a song), I begin to notice an strange static coming out from behind the guitars. This issue is made worse if I double track or add additional guitar tracks, as it is multiplying the noise. I'm not very audio-tech savvy, so I was hoping someone could help me locate (and possibly eliminate) the source of this noise. My guitar uses EMGX pickups. When I turn on the tuner, I get a clean, smooth DI tone with no noise whatsoever (unless I move my guitar's pickups within inches of the various electronics in my studio), making me think I should rule out the pickups. Additionally, changing cables has no effect. I've tried multiple lengths from Fender to generic, so I am also thinking I should rule out the cables. The POD HD500 makes a constant white noise when I have it on certain patches. When I use my Treadplate patch (Drive 64%, Vol 100%, no pedals, just the amp), there is constant noise whether or not I have anything plugged into the POD. Is this normal? The noise is different if I choose different amps (being most obvious on Uber, Treadplate, F-Ball and Elektrik), making me believe this is just how the amps act in real life and are thus emulated, so I think this can be ruled out. I thought maybe it was a ground loop hum, so I bought a HumX, but plugging various things into it (PC, POD, power strip) has absolutely no effect. Hopefully I can rule this out, return it, and get my money back. I've tried using noise gates, but as long as the guitar is ringing out, the static is there. It has a very digital sound, and I suspect it might be coming from my computer. If turn my guitar's volume down, I get the amp noise I was talking about earlier, but as I turn the volume up (strings muted of course), it's like I'm dialing in this digital static. Sorry for the TL;DR. My main goal here is finding out what is normal/abnormal and what I can fix (and if I can return my HumX... that thing was $60!) Thanks for the help. I'll be happy to upload some examples if they are needed.
  3. Hello all, I just received my brand new M9 in the mail. When I hit the tap tempo/looper button, there is a staticky pop noise. So far it's every time I touch it. I am using the included line 6 power adapter and it's plugged into a different outlet than my amp. The other buttons do not make any noise. This problem is at it's worse when using auto swell and particle verb as the noise builds up and creates a swell of static. Is this fixable or should I return it? Thanks!
  4. Hi guys, been getting some annoying noise when playing my EMG loaded guitar through my Pod HD Bean. My passive loaded guitar works fine. I have turned down the gain and still get noise with the EMG's...somebody had suggested that I uncheck the +18db box in the audio settings but I cant find this? I am using a Mac and are running the latest Pod HD drivers according to Line 6 Monkey... Help? Advice? Thanks!
  5. Hi! Ive had my m13 unit now for a year or so and it has worked flawlessly! I love it and its my main effects unit. My issue is, I sat down to practice from a big event I have coming up in the next few days and like normal I plugged everything in as normal and switched everything on but as soon as i engaged ANY switch on the m13 it cuts all my signal and sends an awful hum that simply doesn't let anything else through at all. I've tried multiple cables and different scenes on the unit and every patch does the same thing, lets through signal when the whole unit is bypassed but as soon as an fx on the unit is chosen it cuts all signal and sends a hum that can't be navigated around! Please Help!!
  6. Hi guys Been jamming today with my LTD SC-607B through the POD HD Bean, and all was good at first. Switched it off, came back later and then, without tweaking my patch at all, I started to get this annoying noise trailing my chugs. I have tried out a few lead cords and the same thing, and I am getting the same noise through both bridge and neck pick ups. Here is a recording of what I mean. Its driving me crazy. Like I said, it was fine just minutes earlier until I turned it off for a while. Came back and here we are. https://soundcloud.com/sdsm/my-song-2 Anybody else experienced this or something similar? I just put in a brand new battery for my EMG's too I have tried plugging the POD into other power sockets around the house and same thing I have tried another guitar with passive pick ups and same thing This comes on randomly from time to time
  7. Hello, I bought used kb37 to record guitar, bass and vocal. I use macbook pro 2012 mid and OS version is 10.9.1(Mavericks), Garageband version is v10. But I have not record anything yet because of popup noise when I connect guitar via toneport kb37 on garageband. I installed latest software like monkeys, gearbox and pod farm2 and I changed audio input/output setup to toneport kb37. I can hear guitar sound on garageband but also can hear pop up noise to play and record. I'd like to solve this problem. Thanks.
  8. good evening. as in object: could somebody tell surely what's the impedance at POD XT headphones plug? i have a 32 Ohms set and the sound quality is horrible, so I'd need to build an impedance corrector cable and to know precise values to do that. thanx, bye
  9. I am glad to have a new HD pro X in the end of this year, it sounds perfectly! However, I observe a problem that when the volume of amp models are set above 50% (my setting around 38% to 53%) or applying some EQ effect processing, there often comes some buzz or Ribbing noise sound. I use digital output (for 0 dB) and set to 96kHz, but the buzz sound are also occurred from the headphone output. Does anybody has this problem? any solution for this? Thank you so much. :)
  10. I searched through the forum but couldnt find any answers to this. When I run my PODxt through my computer I get a random really loud noise from time to time. I searched the web and found others with the same issue. The thing is that the noise only appears when I play something in the background, i.e. Spotify or Youtube. When I play thorugh the PODxt with no "background music" it is all good. I have the PODxt connected through USB, guitar and headphones plugged in to the POD. That means that all the computer-sound is going through the PODxt. I am running the latest drivers, and the computer is pretty much a clean install. any advice? brgds / Richard
  11. I have been using my POD Studio UX1 to record electric guitar DI with great success (or at least with very few technical issues) for the past few years. More recently I have ventured into the scary world of recording acoustic guitar and vocals. For this I have been using a rather low-budget dynamic microphone (Superlux TOP-258) running into the UX1 XLR input. It has always frustrated me that I cannot seem to get sufficient gain when recording my acoustic guitar this way. I have cranked the mic gain rotary nob all the way, hit the +18db boost button in POD farm, etc. I previously used Cubase to record, but have since switched to Cockos Reaper. Needless to say, the low mic gain issue persisted despite the DAW switch. Suspecting that the low gain might have something to do with my low-budget mic, I decided to invest in a Shure SM57 (the fact that I use the word "invest" in this context should give you a clear indication of my budget...), hoping that results would improve. To my dismay, however, the low mic gain issue not only remains unsolved, but actually seems worse with the SM57 than the Superlux mic. I feel somewhat at a loose end. I have seen reviews of the SM57 where it is plugged directly into some USB audio interface (just like I do with my UX1) and the artists manage to record acoustic guitar with tons of gain (or so it seems from my perspective). To make it clear: I am running the SM57 directly into the XLR input on the UX1 via an XLR-XLR cable, gain is turned up 7/8ths of the way, directly into my DAW (any more mic gain and the white noise becomes rediculous). The gain when recording vocals (using only a pop-filter between the vocalist and the mic) is acceptable, but still not fantastic. The noise to signal ratio when recording my acoustic guitar, though, is atrocious. Can any one offer advice as to what the problem may be? Could it be the XLR cable? Could there be something worng with my UX1? Is the amount of maximum amount of gain I can hope to get out of the UX1 simply to little to ever be able to record acoustic guitar with a dynamic mic at an acceptable signal-to-noise ratio? Any inputs are appreciated, though may I kindly request that you refrain from suggestions that I purchase a condenser mic (I have noted a trend on these forums to recommend condenser mics as a sort of panacea to any type of mic gain query, even when the purchase thereof is not an option (for whatever reason) to the OP. Given the UX1's lack of phantom power, purchase of a condenser mic would in any case neccesarily imply purchasing a different audio interface, in which event I may as well consider getting an entirely different interface with better preamps and, more importantly, more input gain than the UX1.)
  12. The Spider Valve Mk II series of amplifiers are designed for live performance environments, especially the 100 watt version of the amp. There are rare use cases where, when the volume is set very low ( like an apartment, or bedroom), and specific combinations of Channel and Master Volume are set, the possibility for popping noises when switching between certain patches is present. These noises are brief and, in most cases, are not very loud, depending on the patch configuration. As this is not the normal use case environment that this amplifier was designed for, Line 6 will not be addressing this specific issue on this model.
  13. Hi, One other minor thing I notice with my HD500 is when I have a high pitch shift (More than +12.0), I notice if I play a single not it sounds fine, but if I combine notes together or have one ringing then pluck another one or play a whole chord, sometimes it tends to make the sound "pixelated or digital." I don't know if the example of the sound I provide makes sense. Basically if I have a high octave setting and play more than one note, it tends to sound bad haha. Like I said, minor problem, not a big deal. Thank you, Marty PS) You guys are the best!! Thanks for all the help!
  14. Could anyone tell me if I'm able to get rid of this crackle sound that I get everytime I hit a chord? I tried to upload the patch but a message said that I am not permitted to do that. I noticed the crackle less on the P-75 but I really like the sound of the Plexi. I'm sure that this has been covered but my search did not bring up anything. Thanks in advance.

  15. Hi, My pocket Pod has stopped working. The display is completely dead and so is the led-light. When I connect a cable to the guitar-in-input I only hear a loud noise (*BZZZZZZZZZ*) in my headphones. I have tried both batteries and adapter as power source with same result. Does anyone have an idea whats wrong? Thanks for the help!
  16. Hi! I have a problem with the analogs outs of my UX2. After connecting the output to my Edifier R2600 I can only hear noises. I can see the VU meters moving with every sound of my computer, but I cannot hear those sounds I only hear noises. I tested that the input of the edifier worked (connect the output audio of my computer directly to the Edifier). I tested that the cable works. I tested the analogs output individualy connecting a headphone, and it works! But when I connect the ux2 to my edifier using the same cable, I can only hear noises. Given that the cable is a RCA, I used two conversor from RCA to Plug to plug the cable to the UX2, the conversors are brand new (bought on a good audio store), could it be the problem? Or is something else that I'm missing? Thanks for your help. :)
  17. I'm trying to play songs from my laptop through the POD into a guitar amp. I jam along with a second amp but. However, I'm getting a lot of noise. I'm running a 1/8" cable from the headphones jack on my laptop to the aux in on my Foor Pod Plus. I then use a 1/4" sheilded instrument cable to run from the POD mono out to the instrument input on a guitar amp. I get really bad high frequency interference-type noise coming through the amp. The strange thing is, if I hook up my iPod instead of my computer it is crystal clear. Or if I have my computer hooked up and use headphones via the POD instead of the amp, it is crystal clear. Only this computer + POD + amp scenario creates noise. I *could* just load the songs onto my iPod and use it, but it would be a pain and not nearly as convenient as using my computer. Any ideas what could be causing this noise and how to fix it? Thanks. Scott
  18. Q: How can I reduce hum/noise/feedback when playing? -Single coils pickups used with higher gain settings will often cause noise. Try combining two pickups via the pick-up selector or trying a different guitar to see if the situation is the same. Make sure all the input and output jacks are tight. Check the instrument with different pickup settings to make sure it is not a bad pickup connection. -Higher gain settings tend to be the cause of many noise and feedback issues, try to dial the gain back on your amp a bit. Remember that heavy-rock bands often triple track (or more) when recording to create a thicker sound. -Turn your volume knob off when you are not playing (even during stops in a song when possible). -Turn off other volume controls not being used (i.e. volume trim pots) -Use the highest quality cables you can afford, and the shortest distance you can live with. RF can create many noises that can be eliminated with well shielded cables. -Experiment with distance and position between your guitar and amplifier/recording rig. - Avoid florescent lighting when possible. - Make sure that your instrument/rig is plugged into the same power source as the rest of your gear/band/PA system (to avoid ground loops). - User a power conditioner/regulator to filter RF and keep the voltage constant. - Experiment with the noise gate feature on your Line 6 unit or use an external noise gate. Q: I hear a "popping" sound when I turn my amp on, is this normal? How do I reduce the popping sound I hear when I turn my amp on? A: The popping sound is normal as it is a ramp of up the switch mode power supply. You can lessen the effect by: i) not having the input plugged in (disengaging the preamp section). ii) having the master volume turned all the way down (lowering the power amp output).
