  1. Hi, I've been messing for two days trying to get the usb output from my computer to work at the same time as my 4CM setup. I have an EVH5150 6L6 in 4CM. I can control the output volume and gain on the amp and get the Helix effects and everything works properly. However, I want to jam along youtube, spotify, Guitar Pro or my Daw but I can't get the sound out if I'm in 4CM. If i hit the effects switch of the EVH, it works but I have no more guitar output. And if its off, then I get my guitar back. I want both. Is there any way yo achieve that? Regards,

  3. Français Deutsch Q: How do I set up my computer to work with Line 6 gear? Make sure your Line 6 device is powered by the same power source as the computer (when applicable). Be sure that your system exceeds the minimum requirements listed on the product's box. Disable 'multiple users' on the system, automatic updates, as well as all themes/dashboards. Disable the internal sound card Turn off all other programs outside of the recording application(s), including anything that may be running in your system tray. Turn off all anti-virus software and malware, including products such as ZoneAlarm, Defender, Norton Anti-virus, Firewalls, and pop up blockers Be sure the date and time is set correctly on your computer Disable all power saving, sleep mode options, wireless devices, and screen savers (especially on laptop computers). Remove all Recording applications/playback programs that are not being used from your hard drive. Unplug all non-essential USB, Firewire, and PCI connections (i.e. Web cameras, cameras, printers, scanners, MP3 players). Disable disc compression options, system sounds, the indexing service, and your wireless Internet connection. XP Users Right click on "My Computer" and select "properties", select "advanced", select "performance settings", "visual effects", and select "adjust for best performance" Run your system cleanup and disc defragmenter found under Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools. Control Panel/Line 6 devices > In your Line 6/MIDI devices, select 16 bit audio 512 MB for buffer size Move the Buffer slider to the second tick mark from the left under "extra small" Be sure to select the same settings for bit rate and buffer size in your recording application as well Windows 7/8/Vista Users Go into your computer's control panel and click on the 'Sound' icon. Select your Line 6 device, then click on the 'Properties' button. Click on the 'Advanced' tab in the 'Properties' window. In the 'Default Format' box, try all the different bit and sample rate combinations to see if it fixes any issues you may be having. Windows 10 Go into your computer's control panel and change the view to "small or large icons" Select Line 6 Audio/MIDI Devices. In your Line 6/MIDI devices, select 16 bit audio 512 MB for buffer size Move the Buffer slider to the second tick mark from the left under "extra small" Be sure to select the same settings for bit rate and buffer size in your recording application as well You can also click on the 'Sound' icon. Select your Line 6 device, then click on the 'Properties' button. Click on the 'Advanced' tab in the 'Properties' window. In the 'Default Format' box, try all the different bit and sample rate combinations to see if it fixes any issues you may be having. Mac Users Disable any dual operating systems (dual boot, Parallels, etc.) Run "repair disc permissions" from hard drive Laptop computers: Try removing the power supply to see if there is better performance. If so, try a different power supply. Q: I am getting pops/clicks in my audio stream when I open other programs? A: There is no quick fix to solve this situation, but some end users have had success by installing a higher quality video card. Q: I am not able to get my computer to recognize the Line 6 device? - Plug your Line 6 device directly into the back of the computer. If you are on a laptop, try multiple USB inputs (as many laptops will route keyboard/mouse functions through a USB port, reducing the bandwidth). - Check out the following driver installation documents: USB Driver Installation: Mac USB Driver Installation: Windows Q: I am experiencing latency, how can I reduce it? A: The normal way of reducing latency is to reduce the buffer size. Buffer sizes of 512 will allow latency of about 10ms when using 44.1kHz. You usually set buffer sizes to a power of 2, so if you wanted to lower the latency, try 256, 128 or even 64. If you experience too many dropouts, you will need to increase the buffer size again.

  4. EBMM5150

    Helix

    Long story short I built a massive w/d/w rig 15 years ago. 5150 head and cabs and Rack full of gear and pedals and switcher. Pretty much identical to a 90's EVH rig. About 5 years ago I sold all the gear but kept my collection of guitars and pretty much stopped playing. I wanna start playing again but without all the gear so i have really been looking at the helix. I will be running this straight into my computer using the usb. Can I run a w/d/w using the helix into a computer via usb. I use to use cakewalk with 3 mics, one on each cab but now i just wanna do everything simple through one unit. Center will be dry of course and left and right will have pitch and delay both set different. I am new to helix and line 6 but not new to the gear world. I just wanna take everything i had before and put it in one unit and hook up to my computer and jam. Thanks for reading and any help!
  5. This is my elaboration on Round Trip Latency of Helix hardware used as audio interface based on research on closed fb group https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156514192780269&set=pcb.1077888115728194&type=3&theater&ifg=1 This topic is hardly relevant if you are monitoring direct. Helix hardware latency is 1,8ms from AD/DSP/DA (measured for one DSP Path), no matter what buffer or sampling frequency you pick. If you use another interface for monitoring/recording it is not relevant neither. It is 2,70 firmware time. OSX - you have a choice of two drivers: 1. Multi sampling rate Core Audio driver. You get the lowest latency of 15ms using 32 samples buffer but this seems not to be stable (tested on 8th gen i7) . Safer buffers of 64, 128 samples are at 20ms range. 2. Class Compliant 48kHz driver at 64 samples buffer gives 8ms RTL. EDIT: I do not know if 8ms RTL is REPORTED by the driver or it can be REAL RTL. Windows - you have a choice of two drivers: 1. Supplied ASIO driver. Here are my figures for Round Trip Latencies: 21ms on "Small" 128 samples buffer@48kHz 17ms on "Extra Small" 64 samples buffer@48kHz 15ms on "Small" 128 samples buffer@96kHz 10ms on "Extra Small" 64 samples buffer@96kHz - but this setting is unusable because of artifacts. Bad news for virtual instruments players are 3/4 of RTL is on the output side. 2. ASIO4ALL driver - it is rather overlay for WDM driver, not compatible with Pro Tools. Round Trip Latencies are: 5ms at 128 samples buffer@48kHz 3ms at 64 samples buffer@48kHz 3ms at 128 samples buffer@96kHz Good news or virtual instruments players are buffers are 50/50 input/output. EDIT: I have proven that they are in fact REPORTED RTLs. They are fake numbers! I made my Windows tests using using Reaper (64bit), desktop Windows 10 PC with 3th gen i5 CPU, 16GB RAM. Reaper session was loaded with 5 Hx Native instances. CPU usage was monitored with Windows Task Manager and for the same 128 buffers on both drivers was at 30%. 7ms pictured vs mine 5ms is because I switched off additional 32 samples buffers used for latency compensation in ASIO4ALL (for aggregating devices?) Some pictures to back it up:
  6. So I am having a problem with opening Pod Farm 2. in any DAW. It comes up with the screen that says "NO POD FARM LICENSE FOUND". The thing is, when I go into License manager, listed under "My Devices" is My Computer, which it also says is authorized. So I do not know what is going on. Why can't I open the version of Pod Farm I bought? HELP :(
  7. hello, I'm pretty new to MIDI, but since I recently bought a KORG Volca Keys unit, I was wondering if I could use my Toneport KB37 as the MIDI controller for this device without first going through a computer? I'm asking because in all the forums and manuals it always mentions going through a computer, and of course the kb37 does not have the MIDI DIN connector. if I get a USB-MIDI converter cable (or SPDIF-MIDI??), can I just plug the kb37 into the Volca and have it work? what kind of cable do I need, in case it needs a special cable? and, you know: just all the other silly noob questions about (this) midi setup that you can think of... ;) thanks, Eric. PS: this is a video of the KORG Volca Keys with a midi keyboard setup, I'm looking for something similar, but with the KB37 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVTm0mT53fU
  8. Hi, I'll try and explain my problem but bear with me, I'm not sure of all the technical terms! My set up - PC, 64 bit, running Win 7 Home. Cubase Elements 6. I'm using two DAWs - a Guitar Port and a ZOOM R24. Both have the right drivers and function without issue. The problem is, I've tried to install POD FARM 2 to use their amp models. This worked fine on my original set up but a few months ago I installed a solid state hard drive, reinstalled everything, authorised Cubase and POD FARM, installed it into the VST Plugin library - and this is where it gets confusing. I started with the free models of pod farm - no problems. I reauthorise my PC to run the entire software package - I get all the models and tones back, but now when I activate pod farm as an insert, it comes up, the interface is there - but no audio signal runs through it. I've tried both DAWs, I've tried resetting and reimporting the files using Cubase's plug in manager, which says that the insert is there and active.. I'm out of ideas now. I should mention that the audio signals play fine, and I can use the native Cubase inserts without a problem, but the Line 6 stuff is far better. Does anyone have any ideas?
  9. I just bought a used Line 6 POD 2.0 for my brother-in-law because he liked the convenience I have at home of just plugging my guitar into my POD and having the sound come out of my computer for learning songs from the internet or on mp3 file. My home setup is to use a regular guitar cable from the Left output of my POD 2.0, convert it into a stereo 3.5mm mini jack before my computer and plug the stereo mini plug into my computer's 3.5mm line-in jack. I have the direct/A.I.R switch on the POD set to direct mode. I use the Realtek audio card built into my motherboard and I have the line-in enabled in my computer sound settings. I'm running WIN7 and I use Audacity for any recording but mostly I use it just to have the ability to play and modify my guitar sound while it's coming out of my computer speakers. The problem is it turns out my brother's computer is a DELL All-in-one computer with WIN10, DOES NOT have a physical line in jack and only has 4 USB inputs, one speaker-out jack (in which he has installed a couple of Bose speakers) and one mini-headphone jack. "No problem" I thought - we'll convert the POD 2.0 1/4" out to a USB. I got him to purchase an Alesis Guitarlink cable that converts the regular guitar cable 1/4" to USB for supposedly plugging guitar directly into computer USB. The cable has a red LED on the USB end that lights up when it makes connection. The cable lit up as it was supposed to but nothing comes out the speakers. A look at his computer sound settings shows under the recording tab his realtek audio card and two other recording devices, "stereo mix" and the USB port. No matter which one I select as default - I can get all of them to show strong incoming signal when the guitar is strummed (bars go to max) but none of them output sound to the speakers. There is no 'line-in' listed in the recording devices tab as my own computer has. The 'properties' of each of the recording devices listed show volume level turned up and the 'listen' box checked. Very frustrating! I tried setting his POD direct/A.I.R switch to both settings and it made no difference. Music files play fine on his computer. Any ideas?
  10. I am having an issue with the USB recording.. it will be working for a while then a small noise, and then the guitar is delayed by a full second (ironically the bluetooth audio from my iPhone is not interrupted at all).. just the guitar suddenly is delayed horribly...
  11. So i got the Pod HD Pro X today, but I cant get a sound out of it. My headphones are plugged into the Phones input at the front, the guitar in the guitar input of course. As input mode i selected guitar and as output Studio/Direct. The Pod HD is connect to my PC via USB. I have installed all drivers/software and the monkey does not show any new updates available. I can change the effects in Pod HD Pro x Edit and the pod hd is also reacting but i still have no sound (when playing music and stuff) and no guitar sound... I used the Line 6 UX2 before and I just had to plug in the guitar, the headphones and the USB and I had sound when watching youtube videos and stuff and guitar sound when I opened Pod Farm... Help me please! Greetings :) Edit: i dont know what I did, but i hear the sound the PC makes now, but still no guitar sound, although the signal is shown in Reaper and the Tuner is also working
  12. Hi. POD X3 Live (and I would not be surprised if ALL MULTI EFFECTS) - terrible Hissing pb. Just found the root cause but don't know how to solve it. My device is connected via USB to the PC. The device is also connected to external sound card in stereo using 2x 1/4 cables. In fact there is a loop POD==>USB==>PC==>sound card==>POD. HISS occurs in that very construct even if POD is not plugged to the transformer power supply !!! The hiss is EMI induced (electro magnetic interference) from electrical source which ever it is (probably computer) If I break the loop in any way, EMI induced hiss stops. for instance, keep POD==>1/4 cables==>sound card plugged and disconnect USB ========> no more HISS. Keep PC==>USB==>POD plugged and disconnect 1 of the 2 1/4 cable = 2fold less hiss ; the 2 cables ====>no more HISS. What I am not sure is whether loop can be broken using solid and shielded 1/4 cables. Any help appreciated. DIMEBAG.
  13. How do I get my sound to come out of my computer speakers? I have my POD HD500 plugged in to my computer through USB and through one of the outputs (one end is an instrument cable for the pod, and the other end is a headphone/aux cable for the computer). I've tried messing with the sound settings on my computer, but I don't hear anything when I play. I've seen this done before, so I know it's possible. I don't even think I need a USB for it, but I've tried it without one as well. Please help.
  14. So my computer crashed not long ago and needed to get it fixed and re-installed. I have a Line 6 Pod Studio UX2 that was authorized on my old ID (before the computer crashed), but since it crashed I couldn't deauthorize the device before reinstalling. Now I can't complete my deauthorization because it tells me to deauthorize the device through the other computer (which is the one I am using now, but reinstalled with new ID). What does this mean? Does this mean I can't use my device at all because I can't complete the process? Please help, I have been looking for anyone with he same issue, but with no luck. I was hoping to just deauthorize through my account on Line 6 and then authorize the device again on this new ID. It would be really unfortunate if I have to buy a new POD because of this...
  15. I just purchased a brand new Sonic Port VX. When I plug it in to a Mac computer or Windows, NOTHING happens. There was no CD included in the box, I have it connected directly in to Mac computer at the moment. When I open garageband, there's no option for the Line 6 POD effects, and there is no indication that the device is even connected. What do I do?
  16. Greetings Line6-Community, I want to use my POD HD500 as a USB interface for my PC, instead of using my bulit in soundcard. The only problem for me is, that I need separate outputs for the PC-Sounds and the Inputs (in my case: Guitar via "Guitar IN" and microphone via "AUX IN"). Is it possible to get the PC Signal through the "phones output" and separatley the inputs through the "1/4 L/R Outputs"? Thanks advance for your help! ^_^
  17. I am selling my Pod XT and want to store all it's preset custom tones such as tones for particular bands/songs as computer files for use in Pod Farm. Is there an easy way to do this?
  18. Contacted the support about 2 years ago regarding my secondhand Pod XT. I would be doing whatever on the computer, playing guitar, games, videos etc and suddenly the sound would disappear. Trying to change to another soundcard didn't work or anything regarding sound for that matter because somehow the sound was 'locked' or I presume, stuck in a loop... The support told me it was a hardware problem, since we'd tried everything else, and suggested I sent it to repair. I didn't though, I just kept going, only had to restart the computer when it happened so I didn't feel like spending money on something I'd pay 50 euro for. But now I have bought a new HD 500X and it is fine and all, BUT suddenly the sound disappeared... Hardware malfunction? Hardly. I've been checking some old forum post and I'm not the only one with this problem. So my suggestion to Line6 is that you gather as much information you can on this problem and fix it. I would start by checking your codes for handling the USB...
  19. Which Line 6 Home Recording/Practice Set-Up is Best? (For recording metal/rock music) Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if anyone has an opinion on this... It's been a while having lost all my equipment 4 years ago right when my band was very active. But right now I'm looking to get a home setup where I can easily record and practice. Nothing crazy or fancy, but something I can setup fairly quickly or take with me, but also something that will allow me to produce and record demos for my metal/nu-metal band, Caidema (http://www.facebook.com/caidemaband). I'm really interested in a direct recording But I also know that just mic'ing an amp can be much better. After a lot of research for my budget ($300) I've been looking at the Line 6 POD UX1 and the POD UX2. I'm Leaning more towards the Line 6 POD UX1 more than the other. What I'm not sure about is if if I should go with the UX1, or one of these: Line 6 POD 2.0, POD XT, or Pocket POD. All I need is to be able to plug my guitar and headphones into it (without an amplifier) and be able to practice whenever, wherever (and not lollipop off the neighbors.) I also need to be able to turn on my computer,set everything up, load up the PODfarm, audacity and record my guitar, vocals, etc. I have $300 to get what I need for the setup, required cables and wires, and microphone if possible. Down the line I'll buy more equipment, but for now I just need a simple "I live on my grandfather's couch" setup. Just not sure which one of those I should go with. OR would it be better to go with my other option: buy a 15-30w Line 6 spider amp, buy a microphone to mic the amp, and buy a different USB Audio Interface. (All for under $300 somehow) What do you guys think? Line 6 POD Studio UX1 or Line 6 POD 2.0, Line 6 PODxt, POD Pocket (Or if there is any other product I don't have listed please let me know) • Line 6 POD Studio UX1 (with Podfarm) • Line 6 POD 2.0 • Line 6 Pocket Pod (used)
  20. hello, when i connect my POD 2.0 to my computer via the line in/mic i get audio lag. i have a soundblaster recon 3d. Tried the right/left output and also the headphone jack and still get lag. i tried disabling the THX Studio Pro effects but still have the same problem. Is there some setting ive missed with the recon 3d,?, i using direct air mode on the pod so i dont think its a problem with the pod because having plugged headphones straight into the headphone jack i dont get any lag at all. im just using a standard 3.5mm cable with adapter to plug into computer. Do i need a better soundcard? i have no clue why this is happening because you dont normally get lag from these kind of amp modeling/fx processors like the pod 2.0
  21. I just spent almost a month troubleshooting my problem with recording from my POD UX2 onto my hard drive. My problem was that the recording sounded nothing like what was coming out of the monitors -- the monitors were nice and crisp and heavy and sounded good enough to be presentable, but the recording kep coming out fuzzy, muted, tinny, and overall just total lollipop in general. So here's how I got around this issue. 1. I got some advice to record only the DRY INPUT from POD Farm. To do this, you have to go to your mixer on the standalone software (open it on its own on your computer) and set it to record dry input only. 2. use your DAW to IMPORT POD Farm so that you can run it INSIDE the DAW itself. What this means is that you'll be recording a plain signal with no amps or effects, then ADDING the effect on top of that plain signal. Don't worry -- you can still MONITOR how it will sound by keeping the standalone software open. If you're like me and you're too stupid to figure this out on your own, you usually have to find something in an effects or preferences menu in your DAW or a menu item called "plug-in manager" or something else with the word "plug-in" in it. That will lead you to a window where you can go to your C drive, find your Program Files folder, and open the line6 folder inside that and import all the effects in there into your DAW. I had to have someone hold my hand through that. There is just too much to understand about this stuff. 3. Don't use lollipop software. I tried using POD Farm running inside of a few programs before I tried Adobe Audition, and that was the first one to actually sound good. In Cakewalk Music Creator LE5 and the Reason software that came packaged with my POD, the POD effects always turned my signal to mud. In Audition, it's nice and clean and it actually sounds good. I can't recommend anything other than Audition for this since I haven't tried anything else. So, there you have it. If you are having a hard time getting your POD UX2 to not sound like your guitar is plugged into a rusty old car muffler, try recording a dry signal into good software and then adding the effects you want after the recording is done.
  22. My computer does not pick up my pod HD 500 I installed the driver with line 6 monkey for the pod HD 500 and the installation processes said it was successful, but when I go back into line 6 monkey the option to update the driver is still there. When I say connect to device in line 6 monkey it doesn't want to connect and in Pod HD EDIT it does not detect the device. What am I doing wrong ?

    Pod Hd 500

    Hello, I am fairly new to this system and set-up with computers but i dont understand why the sound is changes. I create the sound then save it to my pod, but then sounds different. For example :- load Casbah to set list 3B then tweak it a bit and add pitch shift to down it 2 steps all on my computer and sound awesome. Then transfer it to my POD HD step on the switch and loose the clarity, sound slightly distorted so loose the clean tone. Even the other sound i transfer don't sound the same. I am obviously missing something so any advice will greatly appreciated. Thanks SJ
  24. Hey, guys! I've been a user of my Pod X3 for about 3-4 years now and I loved that it came with lots of effects, amps, and whatnot. Unfortunately, my computer died a couple months ago and I finally got a new PC with all the programs that I need to run up and going. The only thing I can't really get back to work correctly is the Pod X3. It had a mass amounts of guitar amps and bass amps (etc.) on my old computer.. but now switching it to this computer I only have a measly 2 guitar amps, 2 bass amps, Etc. What happened? Also, i did the license manager thing after I installed the drivers and Pod Farm 1 & 2 but I honestly don't remember the username and password for it since it was so long ago and I've switched my email over and over again (for reasons) I can come up with an idea of what the password might be since I've been using the same couple passwords for numerous years. But for some reason it won't recognize my registered device (and yes it was successfully installed with drivers and all). All I want is to have all my effects back :( someone help?
  25. Hello Everyone, my first time posting to the forums. I've done a quick search on this and haven't found anything that gave any answers to my question....but sorry if this has been already answered and I just overlooked it. Anyway.... I recently purchased a Spider Jam combo amp and been trying to figure out how to connect the damn thing to my brand shiny new Macbook Pro? Do I need to go through the SD Card, or is there some sort of wires/cables like USB I could use? As for software on my Mac (OS X 10.8.4), for right now I'm just gonna use Garage Band. Mainly what I'm hoping to do is record my guitar to some of the backing tracks provided on the amp, and then share them with my Guitar Instructor. Any help or info about this would be greatly appreciated :)
