  1. Hi all! I take my Helix back and forth from rehearsal space every week. When I'm not using my Helix as an audio interface, I got my Focusrite 2i2 hooked up to my monitors. Is there a way to more easily switch between the two than unplugging the audio cables from the Focusrite and plugging them in the Helix? Basically, can I hook up both my Focusrite and Helix to the same speakers, and switch as I need to? This way my Focusrite is always plugged in, and I can just plug in the Helix when I can and switch to it. How would I go about this? Cheers!

    Getting started with Helix!

    Good morning all! Apologies for entering the forum with a post that has probably been repeated many times before but it gives me a chance to introduce myself... I'm Chris, a predominantly bedroom guitarist who ventures out once a month to a local jam night. I've taken the plunge and ordered a Helix after finding an amazing deal. I've play with a few demo units in some local stores so don't have any anxiety around navigation of the device, but as someone who mainly just plugs into an amp via a few pedals, I'm a bit uncertain regarding the additional options for listening to the output of the Helix (at home). I think that the options are largely: 1. Studio monitors 2. Via headphones for near-silent practice 3. FRFR active monitor 4. Amplifier (fx return or front-end) I'd like your advice mainly about option 1 as this looks like a good link into DAWS and home recording. So.... What's the best way to connect Helix to monitors? XLR or 1/4"? Do I need to / should I go through an audio interface? Do I need to hook up to a computer or can I just go directly to the monitors? I currently only have a MacBook Air but will probably buy an iMac later this year. I appreciate that I'll need the computer attached if recording, but as I only have a laptop and use that for work other things, it doesn't have much storage capacity and I like to keep my set-up as simple as possible - i.e. plug and play. Thank you in advance! Cheers, Chris
  3. Apologize if this has been asked already, I couldn't find it in the archives. I've got a latest generation Ipad and would like to record my playing using the built in video camera on the Ipad. I know I can use the built in Ipad microphone or can use a lightning connector mic like a Blue Sparkle to capture external Helix audio coming out of my amplified speakers. But I'm wondering if there is an output on the Helix that would allow me to send the guitar audio signal direct into the ipad to record the audio along with the video that is recording on the Ipad? Ideally would like to do this and also at the same time continue to send my Helix output via the XLR cables to my speakers so I can hear the audio in the room as I'm playing. Any assistance for a tech newb greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    POD HD 500x

    Hi guys! I just disconnected my POD 500X from my computer as the latency was unbearable. I think I'll try connecting my KRK 6's directly into it instead, but I noticed that the outputs on the POD are balanced whereas the inputs on the monitors are balanced for both XLR and TRS. Will this be a problem ? I've read somewhere that when monitoring from the balanced outputs on the POD, the volume gets really low unless you connect to an amp, but when using unbalanced directly it's quite allright for practising...? Just wondering what kinda cables I should head out to buy on monday - cheers for any advice :) -Thomas
  5. Not sure that this is an actual problem but seemed very apparent at the time and appears to have cleared up based on some rerouting so just looking for some opinions. I'm just curious to find out if it a potential cable issue or just the way the balanced line in's handle this as it was the mix of balanced and unbalance inputs. Worst case I hope it's not the start of a fault This is what I was doing had a zoom RT-223 drum machine hooked up to i/p 15 using a unbalanced 1/4" jack cable, output from zoom is line and unbalanced I think. Had a Blackstar HT20 (Emulator out line balanced) hooked up to i/p 14 using a balanced 1/4" TRS. Auto trimmed both RT 14dB, HT 10dB set the faders to about -3dB and -1dB respectively and started to jam along with the drum machine. After about 2/3 minutes got a very noticeable drop off in drum level (hadn't touched a thing) so watched on deep tweek to see if the auto tracking algorithm was changing trim. No change I could see, switched off trim tracking to see if this had an effect nothing changed on the level . Continued to play along and level seemed to go back to original, again other than turning off trim track hadn't touched a thing. So after a few more repeats of drop off then recover some time later decided to reboot. Same thing happened again only the amp had decided to copy the fault and level dropped off on this too, then came back. This is what I did moved drum to i/p 12 re trimed and set-up level and left HT20 in i/p 14 unchanged. Level issues so far no problems and it's been running like this for a few hours. So do the balanced line in's not like unbalanced line connections and somehow it effects all (13-16) i.e is it a common multiplexed ADC or is there something weird going on. Opinions?

    Hd500x - Jacks Vs Xlr Cables ?

    Hey guys, Question: what is the different between the jacks and XLR cable ? I have a mixer connected to the PC but I was wondering the difference between those two connections. Has XLR better quality or something ? Can I connect my HD500X to the mixer with those cables ? Thank you in advance. fr2632
  7. Hey guys, So I got the KB37 and I followed all the tutorials in installing it, and also installing it as my sound card. Works great! But the sound suddenly got cut off after recording for a while. I checked a few things. 1, the V.U meters were still jumping when I played stuff back or when I dragged around the volume slider in the control panel, which means there's still signal. 2. My speakers were still working . I unplugged the 8 inch cable from the back of my PC there was still buzzing when I touched it, so KB37, PC and speakers are working fine. I have a feeling its the Y cable, which didn't have any buzzing when I unplugged them and tested it for defects. There isn't any buzzing sound when I touched both sides (the left and right monos and the eight inch stereo). Nothing. Could it be a deffective Y cable? Before I buy I would like to find out from this end. Also, this seems a little scary but I am unable to switch back to my default soundcard in my PC which is the Creative Soundblaster, which I used to be able to when I had a Line 6 UX2 years back. And so right now, I'm getting signal, I'm able to record but I have no audio coming out. Prior to this problem, I have followed all instructions in installing and updating drivers and activating and authorizing my product. Do advise. Thanks.
  8. Hello I have recently purchased a ux2 and Im quite excited to use it, but I've ran into a problem. I bought some Behringer MS16 speakers to monitor the sound, but there is only one SPDIF output, which is used to connect to the other speaker. I have tried to connect straight from the one speaker just to see if it will work, but no sound at all. The input meter from the guitar in pod farm is moving, meaning at least the sound is being registered. I think I need to buy like a rca (Red and white connectors) to spdif cable to connect to the ux2 to get the sound out, but again Im not sure if I'm right. Could anyone confirm this is the type of cable I need to finally get my ux2 up and running, and if not, direct me to the correct type of cable to use? Thanks Liam

    Hd Pro To Amp Setup.help!

    Hey guys, so I just purchased a Pod Hd Pro Rack unit. I wanna run it through a live rig and all I have is a discontinued Line 6 Mk1 Bogner head, a peavey 5150 slanted cab and an EC1000. The head only has a preamp out and power amp in. Now I have seen many videos of the HD500 live setup with the 4 cable method but the rack unit doesnt have the same outlets as the 500. I have a few questions about all this. 1. What cables should I be using specifically for the 4 cable method(stereo, mono cables? mix of both?) and how do i connect them without hiss or airy noises( do i need to mod something on the pod hd as well to link with the cab better?) I just changed tubes so i know its not the head or anything digital thats wrong. The speakers in the cab are new as well. 2. The loudness of the amp reduces when i plug in the pod hd( also all hiss and airy noise is gone). Is my amp not suitable to power the pod hd? 3. finally is there a way to bypass the effects from the head and just use the power from the amp to run my pod hd's effects? This noob would really appreciate your help. Thanks guys!
