    Help with Audio interface setup

    Been recording with the Line 6 helix as my primary audio interface. Works ok for guitar parts, with direct monitoring but as soon as I switch to virtual instruments, anything below 256 samples gives me some clicks and pops. 256 samples has a latency of around 8-9 ms. I have been considering getting an Audient ID14. Questions: 1. Will this improve the latency situation for use with Virtual instruments? (soft synths, kontakt etc....) 2. How do I connect the Helix to the SPDIF in on the Audient? 3. Will I have to keep changing the sample rate on the Audient when moving from Helix recording to VI recording etc. etc.? 4. Will I have to connect the Helix both via a line out and via SPDIF to acheive reamping functionality? I also welcome suggestions for other interfaces. 300 USD max please...

    Home Studio Question

    Hey all, I have the Helix as my audio interface in my home recording studio. I have a Roland FA-06, Guitar, Bass, Vox as my needed inputs. Right now I run one at time and am sick of unplugging. Would I be able to run them all through Helix at once or do I need to get something like the Presonus Quantum? (If I can run them all in, how would you do that) Also I have an Presonus ADL600, Kush Electra EQ and a DBX 162SL Comp as my external hardware? How would you incorporate those components into your single chain for recording? Thanks for any help or suggestions.
  3. Hi All, Basically what i'm after is to be able to record 3x wet signals at the same time via a suitable audio interface into my DAW. Set up consists of a pod hd 500, Yamaha digital piano & electric drum kit. The main issue i've encounted while searching for a suitable interface is the lack of line inputs. I was looking at the Focusrite 6i6 as it's in my price range, but I was unsure how i'd connect all 3 instruments? I'd planned on running the pod hd500 in to the interface via the XLR Out on the pod to the line input of the audio interface (via XLR to TRS 1/4) here is the problem... the research I've done also recommends connecting the digital piano via the same set up (R ----- L\+R out to audio interface line input) & i'd like to run the same type of connection to the electric kit... Is this as simple as me having to fork out the extra cash for a higher end audio interface, or can I run these 3 instruments via a different set up into the audio interface? I'd even be happy being able to record 2 wet signals at once. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks :)

    Don't understand the 8-in 8-out thing

    I'm trying to figure out if I can use the helix as an audio interface for recording all my instruments, including acoustic drums. I thought I might be able to do this by connecting it to an 8 channel preamp, like the behringer ada8000 for example, which would give me room for 8 drum mic inputs. However, I came across this youtube video where he says the helix has 8-in and 8-out via usb: I don't understand what that means. Does the helix have 8 inputs I can plug mics into? From looking at it I don't think so. Does it mean I can connect and 8 channel preamp to it? Can someone please explain what the 8 in and 8 out means? Also, if I want to use the helix as an audio interface for recording drums, would I do that by connecting it to an 8 channel preamp? Thanks.

    Using Helix With An Audio Interface

    So I've had the Helix for about 6 months now, and I've been recording with the Helix USB port, because my old audio interface wasn't that great. I'm going to be buying a Focusrite Clarett 8Pre X because I'm getting more into my home studio. I was wondering if I can run the Helix through it like this: - Helix XLR L & R outs into channels 3 & 4 (for example) on the interface. - Guitar Thru on Helix Rack into DI box (then into the interface) or High Z input on the interface. - Aux out 3 (for example) on the interface, into fx return 4 on the Helix. I would then use the three tracks to record my stereo amped tone and a DI track, then send the DI back into the Helix, using FX Return 4 at line level, as the input, and then re amp to my liking. My main concern is that I'm not sure if I can send the track back into the Helix the way I described. Any help is much appreciated!

    HELIX Live Setup Help Needed

    Hi folks. I am a HELIX newb, so please go gently! Can anyone advise me how best to achieve the following live rig/setup using Helix as my guitar amp/effects rack and as my audio interface between my DAW and PA/backline? 1. I need to use my DAW to play recorded synths/keys (I'll be using wavs from DAW not midi). 2. I will also need a click track on a separate audio output which will go through a mini mixer which the drummer can control (drummer will then be able to hear click and monitor mix in headphones). 3. I'll be using Helix for guitar with output to an FRFR speaker which I was thinking I'd use in front of me (wedge monitor). 4. Everything, including rest of band, goes to FoH PA and stage monitors. My questions: A) Can I use Helix as the audio interface with one stereo output for synths/keys and another to route click through to drummer's mixer (both from DAW)? If so, how? B) Would you bother having a separate output for the guitar to its own speaker or would you just have a full-monitor mix of the whole band? (I'm nervous of the latter having only ever played with my guitar amp behind me. I'd also like to be able to control guitar feedback independently of monitor mix). Advice very much welcomed. Any diagrams of how you'd set this up would also be super helpful. Best wishes Simon
  7. Hi guys, Until now, I've been using an audio interface with BIAS / Guitar Rig type of softwares to records my tracks. Since Helix got out I just dream about that rig, saw an incredible amount of video pointing out how awesome it is. I fell in love with the sounds and its possibilities and I am more than willing to buy one but I have a last question before jumping in the arena. My guitar skills are not over the top and thus, I still use software such as Mymusicteacher to improve myself. I plug my guitar in the interface and its detected by the software, allowing me to get a live feedback on my play. Does anyone know if Helix is compatible with this software ? If plugged in USB does it takes the role of an audio interface ? I'd like to infuse my all rig with Helix and that would be the absolute comfort ! Thanks for taking the time, cheers guys. Fred.
  8. Hi guys, I have the Firehawk FX, and I also have Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface which I normally use to record my vocal with a condenser mic. Now a shop nearby has Sennheiser mic 50% discount. As I'm looking forward to recording my electric guitar in the future, and I heard that dynamic mic suits the job, this is a good chance to buy one. The problem is I'm not sure if I should or need it. Which way, in your opinion, is the better way to record the electric guitar between ... Guitar --> Firehawk (with amp simulation) --> Audio Interface (Scarlett 2i2) --> PC VS Guitar --> Firehawk (for effects) --> Amp (a small tube amp, Vox AC4C1-BL) --> Mic --> Audio Interface (Scarlett 2i2) --> PC Thanks a lot guys.

    audio interface (spider V 60w)

    I'm having issues using my spider v 60w amp for recording. I had it working but there was a huge latency issue and when i went to fix it, it completely stopped working. I have windows 10 and was using the program ohm studio to upload and share music using Livewire cord from amp to computer. All drivers/software are up to date. If anyone has a fix for this or has any ideas to try it would be appreciated. Thanks
  10. Hey Everyone, So I have a workflow/signal chain question for you all. To start, here's my setup AI: Apogee Quartet Speakers: Yamaha HS8's with Sub DAW: Logic Pro X My question to you, is how should I go about routing? For recording, Should I go directly from the Helix into my DAW via USB, or should I go XLRs out of my Helix, into my Apogee Quartet, and Apogee Quartet into my DAW via USB? Then for standard practicing, should I do one of the above, or go directly from my Helix into my Yamaha HS8s via XLR or 1/4 inch? The problem with using my Helix via USB is that I have multiple microphones going into my Quartet, and having to switch active audio interfaces back and fourth while recording is a hassle. I suppose I could always use Apple's "Aggregate Audio Device" function, but am not confident in its usability. I'd love to figure out a way to make this work as I'd like to be able to use Helix's ramping function. Also, in everything that I've mentioned, do you see a need for me to be using a word clock cable? Thanks,
  11. Hello, I´m user of POD 2.0 and I usually record the songs using line in (analog input) of my pc. Therefore, I´m using my Realtek integrated soundcard to convert it to digital signal. I try to improve audio quality of my records and I´m looking for an audio interface to connect POD 2.0 and then to USB port of my pc. Audio interfaces uses directly the signal of my electric guitar as input signal and I think that POD 2.0 has a different output signal compared with my guitar (I think POD 2.0 has a strong signal output). Then, Why type of audio interface is it recomended? Can I use POD 2.0 output signal as input of the audio interface? Thank you

    Spider Jam with Audio Interface

    Hello, first of all, please don`t mind my English. No native Speaker! I want to record my EWI Usb with the Edirol UA 25 plugged in the Aux Input of the Spider Jam (or other Inputs doesn`t makes a difference). But no matter which output I take (The jacks or the cinch or the Phone output) there ist always a strong humming. And when I play the Loop the humming ist on the recorded file. Anyone an ides what to do? Greetings Friedus
  13. Ok...is anyone having difficulty recording to a DAW. My setup is: Helix Logic X Macbook Pro running El Capitan (previously had Yosemite installed but upgraded to Capitan to try and cure the problem without success) Using the Helix as an audio interface and recording into Logic X works fine but as playback repeats the sound begins to suffer serious gapping. Keep it playing and it starts glitching uncontrollably and sounds almost like digital feedback. If the USB is disconnected from the Helix and I play the sound back through my MOTU interface the sound is pristine. To me this is a deal breaker for the Helix and i'm trying to ascertain if the problem is my setup before I ask Line 6 to take the unit back.
  14. Hello fellow audio engineering junkies!! I just recently downloaded Line6's POD HD500X software along with a patch that has opened right to 'Setlist 1'. I do not have an external Line6 device, however, I do have an Akai Professional MPK25 USB/Midi Performance Keyboard and just recently bought my Tascam US 2x2 Audio Interface to record with and I was having Issues with setting up my POD HD500X with my MPK25 midi keyboard. Is there a way to arm devices through Line6 or arm the pod through any other programs like my Mixcraft 6 recording software? I have a midi patch set up on a setlist, yet It Is not registering through my midi. If anybody has any suggestions on how to run and arm Line6 through various devices then I would love to know ASAP. If there are any drivers that would make this possible, please feel free to link It In your reply. I would like to start creating and downloading patches to use for my devices, but I need It to come through on them first!! Here's Hoping, Brendan
  15. Hi, I'm just got my DT25 HD today. And I'm going to use the cabinet simulated direct out to my Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 audio interface, but I'm not sure which input to plug to, should I plug to line input or the preamp input of the audio interface? Thanks!
  16. Hi. I need some help. I've been using podFarm for a while and seen some great results for metalcore music. Recently I purchased an ibanez ts808 tube screamer and removed my tube screamer simulation from my podFarm tone to see if it gave the guitar a more realistic sound. I was happy with the result. I am now looking to buy an amp head So now I have two questions which I need help on. Can I have a chain of real tube screamer -> real amp head -> pod, and remove the amp head from my pod farm tone to give the guitar an even more realistic sound, as the only thing simulated would be the speaker cabinet? If I can do this can someone explain as simply as possible the way to do it, as I am a noob. My second question is what is the cali diamond plate amp head meant to be like in real life amp heads, I have £1000 to spend and want like a real version of the cali diamond plate, any suggestions? Thanks
  17. Hi guys, i'm new here, and i have a nice question.. let's start from the begin, actually i record using my pod hd500 + Scarlett 2i2 + Cubase 5 (on windows 7), i use the pod hd500 xlr out into the xlr in of my scarlett 2i2, do you think it's possible to record using the direct usb connection of the pod and the Scarlett 2i2 (which is connected to my studio monitors) to monitor everything? (usually i don't need to monitor my guitar by the audio interface cause i use the l/mono out of the pod into my amp for that, but i need to listen to the backing track!) On cubase i can do this only using the generic asio drivers but i have a very big latency, it's impossible to work in that way! I want to record using the direct usb because the signal is more clear and with high fidelity... Any ideas?? :)
  18. Hey Guys, I'm considering buying a PODHD for live purposes. Im a Bassist (playing a BassPOD XT atm) but i have a Laptop on stage too, so i have to bring an Audio Interface with me too. So i ask my self if it's possible to have the POD HD output my bass signal through one output to my bass amp and the "dry" laptop signal connected via usb to the PA. signal 1: bass guitar -> podhd -> bass amp signal 2: laptop -> usb -> podhd -> PA I looked it up in the manual and the forums but couldn't find a definitive answer. If somone could help me I'd really appreciate it because it would save me from carrying lots of cables and equipment to the stage. thx!
  19. Hello everyone, I am considering to purchase Pod X500, but I have a big dilemma... I currently own PodXt and there's one thing about it which is really bothering me - I'm unable to route guitar to different output on it while XT is connected via USB. Elaborating a bit - I want an option to be able to send fully processed signal from guitar to, let's say, both unbalanced 1/4 outs connecting to amp, and non-processed signal from DAW to the both XLR's, leading to console/PA. I want just guitar/ in my amp, and clean DAW in PA, without guitar mixing in. Simultaneously. Also it would be lovely to know if I can route XLR input to different outputs, say, fully processed signal (achieved by dual amping in Pod) goes to the same output as DAW. Is it all possible? X500 really seems like hell of a machine - XLR input, looper, MIDI, Audio Interface, loads of I/O... But it will be nothing for me without this basic flexibility, which Pod XT doesn't have. I made a search on forum and knowledge base and there was no answer. Please, owners of X500, help fellow musician out! :) Cheers.
  20. So I contacted tech support, but as it turns out they're not much help. I'm wondering how I can start recording and practicing through my computer with just my guitar and Floor Pod Plus. I read you need to have a Audio Interface so I chose this one. "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0023BYDHK/ref=s9_simh_gw_p267_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1N8X2BZD74TBM8T0K543&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1630072222&pf_rd_i=507846" It's a Behringer UCA222, and it's only $30. It has some pretty awesome reviews on it, and I'm not looking to spend much so I thought it'd be a good Audio Interface to buy. I guess my question is, would all I need to start recording through my computer be the Audio Interface, my guitar, and the Floor Pod Plus? How would I go about hooking it all up together? And what cables/connectors would I need? More of a detailed description would be helpful, but I guess anything at this point will do. Also if I hooked this all up could I just put in headphones through my computer and practice playing that way? Thanks in advance!
