In my use case the Helix is my primary audio interface for my DAW. I record Guitar and Vocals using the Helix as the interface. While I enjoy the built in microphone pre-amp for vocals, I'd like to know the best way to integrate and patch an external pre amp into the Helix. The Mic pre is by Warm Audio. It has a balanced +4 line level output. Both a 1/4 inch TRS jack and XLR are available as outputs, Should I: Get an XLR -20dB pad and plug the Warm output to the Helix XLR mic input? (Ensuring the p48 is off on the helix) Go into one of the line RTN 1/4 inputs, If so are these helix inputs TRS or TS and what adapter cable would you recommend?
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?
Hello everybody, I was recording my guitar as usual with mi UX2 interface, and suddenly there was no sound entering in both lines entries. I was using a dynamic microphone to the interface, then I tried to change to the guitar directly and nothing changes. I actually updated POD Farm 2 with line 6 monkey to the latest version, but nothing happens. Does anybody had the same problem? There was no fall, no hit, no nothing! I was recording normally and suddenly there's no sound entering anymore. Help me please, I'm seriously thinking something happened inside both line entries. What is the next thing to do?? I'll be waiting for your comments!
