  1. My Toneport UX8 has died. I spent a fair amount of money fixing other issues with it recently, so I don't feel it's worth the investment to repair this problem too. So I just bought a Behringer U-Phoria UMC1820 to try out for recording instead. So far it's working well, and has surprisingly low latency options (haven't tested them all though). It's working well at 128 and 256 so far. However, with Pod Farm 2.0 Standalone, I have a few problems with this device: 1) I can only select 1 input channel in File > Preferences > Hardware > Input Channel. With the Toneport I believe I could select 2 inputs for say vocals and bass simultaneously, no? Is this expected behavior when using a non-L6 audio interface with the program - You can only process a single input, even if the interface has more? 2) Every time I restart Pod Farm 2.0 the Input Channel settings resets to Input 1, even though I'm trying to set it up on Input 2 as the default. Guess I'll just have to swap my physical settings since I record guitar most of the time, but that's kind of annoying. 3) Usually when I switch input channels, the output volume of the same patch becomes very loud (into heavy clipping) compared to the identical patch when loaded in Pod Farm VST. Switching presets, and switching back seems to reset it to the expected volume though. 2) Clicking ASIO Settings doesn't open the UMC control panel. Clicking the ASIO configuration in Reaper is able to open it just fine, so it seems to just be an issue with this.

    Assigning tuner input per preset

    Hey everyone. Im trying to set up my Helix LT to run both acoustic and electric, separate presets for each with electric on wireless feeding the guitar input and the acoustic also on wireless feeding return 1 I can have the input set up as Return 1 on the Acoustic presets and output the 1/4 jack to a DI box. The electric inputs on the Guitar and out the XLRs. that stores per preset which is fine. However I can only have the tuner set to guitar or return 1 but not both... Anyone have a work around without having to use a separate tuner on one of the instruments. Thanks for any help...

    Common Signal Flow Traits on the Helix

    The Helix is designed for the user to set up a number of signal flow combinations. It allows for unique situations that would normally be extremely difficult to set up in real life. They can now be easily arranged within the unit. For further reading, make you also check out the Helix manual section on Serial vs. Parallel Routing and Moving Split & Merge Blocks. View the Helix manual here Having said that, you can also get some un desirable results if you're not careful with how you set up your routing. These can include phasing issues, volume drop, or noise floor increase. *Notes about Inputs and outputs · 1/4" Returns are unbalanced. · All Helix ¼†outputs (main outs and Sends) are impedance balanced, so you can plug a TRS cable and go to another device’s balanced input and profit from some common-mode noise cancellation. . When the Helix outputs are set to line level, they are +4dBU nominal with approximately 15dB of headroom. When set to instrument level, they -10bBu. Or more simply, they are 20Vpp max input/output. Noise floor increase due to the introduction of Sends and Returns ​When using the Helix’s sends and returns the noise floor can be increased. This is due to the number of A/D converters now used in the signal chain. Most of the increase is negligible. However, it can become more noticeable if the sends/returns are placed in front of a high gain amp model such as the PV Panama (Peavy 5150) due to its inherent high noise floor. This phenomenon occurs on the Pod HD series as well. . Potential latency issues due to the introduction of Sends and Returns This is another one that you won't notice in most situations, but could arise given certain circumstances. The tiny amount of latency introduced from another set of A/D converters is impossible to hear on it's own. An issue could occur if you merge that pathway back with another serial pathway that wasn't going through that send/return. The millisecond delay may cause some undesirable phasing. Below I have pictured a signal path that might yield poor results. If you move the merge block before the Send/Return, then it would eliminate any potential phasing issues. Using Helix Hardware as an interface to record When using the Helix as an interface with a DAW, the signal routing can get a little confusing and it might become difficult to balance levels for monitoring. The typical set up would be guitar into Helix, then Helix to computer via USB. You would then monitor from the headphones, 1/4" or XLR outputs. Given that setup, the guitar and the DAW's playback are sharing the same monitoring. If you have the guitar going into the DAW and then back out, you will hear your guitar twice. You can mute the DAW's return of the guitar track to avoid this. Also, in this case the volume knob will control the total output making it tougher to balance the sound of the guitar and the DAW's playback. Try setting the volume knob to only control the feed you're monitoring, and it will no longer control the USB feed to your computer. You can also try making the playback volume adjustment from the DAW. Using Helix Hardware as an interface to record with Helix Native The above signal flow still applies, but a new level of complexity is added. Since the hardware is no longer processing the guitar, you can't mute your guitar tracks return feed, because you'll want to hear it. What works best is the set up the Helix with a blank preset, and then change the output block to your desired USB output. That way, the only thing you're hearing from the Helix is your DAW's return. Auto Impedance Switching With the Helix family, the default setting for the guitar input is auto impedance. The impedance will be determined by the first block in the signal chain. Even if the first block is bypassed, the impedance setting from that effect block will determine the input signal level. This automatic impedance will change the input volume and tone, this is most apparent with guitars that have passive pickups and are directly connected to the guitar in of Helix. Distortion Pedal Volume Drop Sometimes when adding a distortion/fuzz pedal, your signal volume drops. Here's a link to a great article written by our sound designer Ben Adrian that can explain in detail what's occurring. Although the article is written to describe what happens in the analogue world, it's affect can be experienced within the Helix and it's digital models. Distortion Pedal Volume Drop (and how hard diode clipping works)
  4. Although the Helix has an S/PDIF input mounted on the unit, other than the back panel descriptions in the manual (item 29), there is nothing else addressing this input. The global settings panel on page 50 of the manual only mentions digital output level nothing about inputs. On the firmware side, the home screen for global settings also defaults to digital output level, nothing about input level or routing. Also, when trying to access S/PDIF input by creating a path within a patch, the input block will not give the option to select S/PDIF input (or digital in). So, is this an oversight or am I missing something?
  5. I'm a one man band and I need to control the volume for my backing tracks using a volume pedal through the EXP3 controller. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to assign EXP3 to the USB 1/2. I found a way to make this work creating a USB 3/4 input with a volume block within a patch but when I change the patch, the backing track playback interrupts momentarily making this option unusable. I know I can use a mixing board and all that but I'm very excited about the possibility of only using the Helix and not have to lug and set up any other gear. We are so close, just need the ability to assign one external (EXP) controller to control the input volume for USB 1/2 input. Any ideas on how I can make this work?

    Using Helix's Sends To Route Backtracks

    Does anyone know of a successful way to route the USB Channels to Helix's sends for backtrack use? From ableton I'm trying to send click out 1, bass out 2, guitars/production out 3/4, and BG vocals out 5/6. I can't seem to get any of the routing to happen without manually creating a path on the second open chain in each patch. This only results in two active outputs. Is it not possible to make this happen?

    POD HD500X Dual Effects Loops

    Hey all, Is there any way to set up the HD500x to have 2 effects loops? For example, could I use the Headphone out and aux input as a send and return for another effects loop? I think that the way that this would probably work practically is to have one "signal path" which goes guitar input -> internal stuff -> Headphone out. Then have a second signal path which goes "aux input -> stuff -> live outs?" I have a good bit of outboard gear that I currently use with an older POD, and really need to be able to put them in 2 separate loops (one for preamps and gain stages, one for post-amp time based stuff) which I currently can't do. Is it doable with the HD500x? or do I need to go to Helix for that?

    Guitars into Firehawk FX

    Hi Guys, new to the forum but have been aLine 6 user for many years. I currently use a rackmount Pod Pro with full floorboard and a JTV 59, along with a 'normal' guitar live. I use an AB switching pedal to send one or the other guitar's signal into the POD. I'm considering changing to a Firehawk FX, and was wondering if i could connect the JTV59 via the VDI cable to the firehawk, and my 'normal' guitar to the 1/4" jack input, and somehow switch between the guitars that way? Is this possible? Also in my current setup i use another AB box to switch the guitars to the POD or to a seperate channel on the Mixing desk for Acoustic sounds from the JTV. How might this work with the Firehawk? Finally, on the POD Pro i use the XLR outputs to the desk and 1/4" jack outputs to a stereo power amp going into 2 Marshall 1x12s, will i still be able to do this? Many thanks for your advice!
  9. Hi, when connecting the balanced outputs of the UX8 to the unbalanced inputs of the Roland MC-909 should I use a balanced or unbalanced cable? What effect would using balanced vs. unbalanced have on the signal?
  10. There's lots input and output options with the Firehawk line. Here's a breakdown. First let's look at what's the same on both units. USB port for updating firmware and use as an I/O interface. Variax input for any Line 6 Variax guitars 1/4" Stereo headphones (This will cut the speaker off on the 1500) 1/4" Stereo out XLR Stereo out 1/4" Stereo FX Send and Return Bluetooth Wireless for use with the Firehawk Remote app and any other Bluetooth streaming device Firehawk FX unique: 9VDC input for use with the DC3g power supply 1/4" jack for use with a outboard expression pedal (compatible with Line 6 EX1 and Mission Engineering EP1-L6) Firehawk 1500 unique: IEC power cable jack FBV cable jack for use with FBV 3 or FBV MKII MIDI in and out/thru Check out the Midi implementation chart in the manual for details XLR+1/4" Stereo Combo jacks with Gain Adjustment Knob. This is to be used with any source that you want the 1500 to be a FRFR stereo monitor. Like a Pod, Helix, or even an iPhone to play music.
  11. can you join together two m20d's together for 24 xlr inputs?
  12. 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?
  13. Hi Line6 users and staffers! I'm using my Pod Studio UX2 with Nuendo 4 but I have an outstanding problem. In the Nuendo's VST connection window, the software only detects the mic1 and mic2 input busses. How can I enable the others input entrances like "instrument" or "line1" and "line 2"? The ASIO drivers is Asio4All v2 or Asio UX2. Thx and keep on rockin' guys!
  14. Pedal Inputs The pedal inputs on the UX2 and KB37 are for momentary switches only (like the keyboard sustain pedal used with a synthesizer or digital piano). They're used to step up and down through presets or to control start/stop and other MIDI Machine Control functions (MMC) audio recording application Transport Controls. Other parameters can be controlled within the software, but to do that you need an external MIDI source (like a programmable MIDI foot controller plugged into your computer's MIDI interface). GearBox Wah Control In GearBox under Edit/Preferences/Midi tab select your midi interface ports IN and OUT. Set your midi controller pedal to CC# (continues controller number) to CC# 4. This should engage the wah function in GearBox.
