    POD Mic Recording + DI

    Hi everyone. Really hope that somebody can help me. Here is what I wanted: I want to record 2 tracks simultaneously in Reaper. 1 track - DI signal from guitar 2 track - Signal that was processed by POD FX (like a pedalboard), then it goes to real amp (which input should I use - guitar in or FX return?), and then this signal is picked up by real Mic that is connected to POD Mic in input, and then this signal goes to PC as a second track. Is it possible? Please advise how to set it properly, I tried to do it, but got feedbacks when the mic is put towards the cabinet. I got stuck I've attached the picture of what I mean Many thanks in advance
  2. Hi all, hope you're well. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me please. I'm having difficulties setting up a NT1-A condenser mic through a UX1. I've read through several old posts on this forum but can't seem to find the answer I need. The issue is the volume level from the mic; it's barely audible. The NT1-A is plugged in to the input channel of a Neewer 48V phantom power supply (power into mains), with the output going into the mic input of the UX1. The UX1 is plugged in via USB with the output settings set to 'built-in output' via Garageband on a MacBook Pro, coming through to my headphones. I've cranked the mic gain on the UX1 up to max, pushed the track volume up to max in Garageband and 'Mic 1' input is selected on the mixer in Podfarm. I can mostly hear a quiet, soft hissing noise (presumably the high gain setting) but when I go to record I can hear my voice quietly underneath, so seemingly the mic is on and registering. I've tried clicking the +18db boost on the input channels in the mixer in pod farm, which increase the volume of the hissing and makes things a little louder but something's clearly wrong. I've been recording guitar using Podfarm without trouble, so presumably I'm missing something as I believe other people have managed to get condensers with phantom power working fine? I'd appreciate any suggestions as to how I can fix this,, thank you!
  3. Hi All. I am really puzzled here. I tried to different mics....same result. I set a 2 channel configuration on my POD HD500X via the computer editor, Input Source 1 = Guitar and the Guitar In = 1M, the second Input Source is set to MIC and Preset (I even switched these around). I have a preamp in the mic line. I get no vocal sound. I can hear my finger nail scratching on the mic to test (loudly) but when I talk or sing I get absolutely nothing. I have turned up the POD HD500X mic volume all the way. I turned up the POD volume and master volume all the way. What the heck am I doing wrong?

    Physical EQ with amp disabled?

    Hi all! Im new to the POD HD500 (yea i bought an old one cheap)so this might be an easy fix. Or not haha... I play acoustic and sing so have setup a dual path, input #1 as guitar, input #2 as mic (XLR input). Both paths start with a 'disabled' amp then split into the required EQ settings, comp boost, then rejoin to the reverb unit, volume pedal etc. Looks like this: So my question is how can i use the physical EQ knobs for tweaking overall tone (of the above patch) at various gigs/rooms? Is this ^ whats called "Global EQ" or GEQ"? Hoping its just a setting somewhere or it can be assigned to the mixer. Thanks in advance! Clint

  6. I've read that the GX is not intended for voice recording, if I am right... I bought it a long time ago and I'm starting to record more lately however I want to keep recording with it for a time until I sell it and buy a more appropiate card and condenser mic as well. My question is with what I have what would be the optimal setup? I use the Noise Gate + American Classic preamp + Compressor in Pod Farm. The thing is the AC preamp makes it sound a little different and the compressor part is something I would rather do in the DAW for a more raw take to work with, so I increase the volume with having a little bit of preamp and compressor. Other preamps like console and modern also give a cleaner sound but don't seem to really preamp, or not too much at least since they don't have a drive knowb which seems to change the sound as well the higher they're set. Also inside the DAW use multiband compression which makes the audio much more crispy but idk if EQ is also needed with that, although the current setting I have seems to be good enough...

    Acoustic Guitar impulse response

    Hello every one. Does anyone know how to find some IRs for acoustic guitar ? I didn't find anything by googling. I need some IRs in order to use in my Helix for recording acoustic guitar through cable or mic ( which I don't know which one may works better with IRs) The purpose is creating a killer sound with a not perfect acoustic guitar! ...and please advice how to use it? I mean ordering. TNX :)
  8. The headache question that's been on my mind since early August. (Had to return a faulty unit) I bought a new setup for streaming, an AT-2035 Mic which I've seen a lot of forum posts surrounding (gulp), a cool boom arm for said mic and the UX2. Although I have seen many forum posts, none seem to answer my question and cut off prematurely due to Mic 1 not being selected. My setup: an AT-2035 is plugged via XLR lead into mic port 1, knobs are at reasonable levels. An aux cable with an adapter is plugged into the hub of my 5.1 surround system to provide audio out. Phantom power is activated and the USB is connected to the back of my PC (motherboard USB 3.0). Dials are lit up orange but I haven't set them up for any readings yet. The software is set to Mic 1 in the mixer using Noise Gate, Compressor and American Classic. (pretty sure all input volumes are up). My question finally is, why is there no audio coming through? I'm not very technical so do go in depth but talk to me like I am a child or I may not understand.
  9. So, I'm having a problem, and I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I can hope one of you might be able to help. I'm a newbie to this kind of stuff, most of the time I've figured things out by random trial and error. The problem I'm having is that my microphone is not being detected by Windows, it doesn't show up at all. I've tried a variety of things, but if you think you have a solution, assume I haven't tried it. If you can, I would like details and step by step stuff, I'm not great at improv direction. I'm a streamer and Youtuber, and the mic and interface was chosen because it's the the popular choice among other streamers. Details of my setup: Mic: AT 2035 Interface: Line 6 UX2 PC: Custom OS: Windows 10 Pro Motherboard: Crossfire V Formula Z CPU: AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.01 GHz Ram: 16.0 GB GPU: GTX 1080 Founder Edition Recording Software: OBS Picture 1: Current configuration of Pod Farm 2 Version: 2.59 Details: As seen, all three items in the configuration are turned on. Input is set to mic 1, and as seen from the levels the mic is working and the software is registering audio. Picture 2: Pod Farm License Manager Details: As seen, both my computer and the UX2 Interface are authorized. Something I see, there are add-on's in UX2 but not on my pc, not sure if that is significant. Picture 3: Playback and Recording Details: "Speakers 3 - Line 6 UX2" from the UX2 obviously "NVIDIA HDMI Output (Port 1 - 3)" Are my monitors "SONY TV - 4" Another of my monitors "AT Headphones" My headphones "Realtek Digital Output (1 - 2)" Not sure, but from the disc that came with my motherboard "Digital Audio Interface 3 - Line 6 UX2" from the UX2 obviously "Microphone" This is not the AT 2035. I'm unsure what it is, but when listening to audio its just the same droning noise. Might be an audio jack on the computer itself. "Line In" No clue on this. "Stereo Mix" Not sure what this does, but it is also from the disc that came with the motherboard. That's everything that I can think to include. If you need more information in order to help I will do my best to answer. So, if you might know of a solution, please do say.
  10. Hey guys! I own a XD-V75 system and I need to replace the receiver (had an accident with a speaker falling over my rack and it crushed it). A friend of my mine is offering to sell me his old XD-V70 receiver which he claims is pretty much the same thing only without an USB port. Apparently it has already been updated with the latest firmware and channel options, so he says that the receiver now goes up to 14 channels (rf2) which should work fine with my hand held mic THH12. Can anyone confirm this? Will I be compromising any functionalities if I use a XD-V70 receiver with a XD-V75 mic? Thanks for the help! Cheers
  11. 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.

    Pod HD 500x Capabilities?

    Hi all, I'm thinking of buying a POD HD 500x, but want to know a little bit more about the capabilities it has. Sorry if these are dumb questions - I haven't been able to find answers anywhere else. Does the POD HD500x have any backing tracks to play/practice with? It seems that the HD500 does not - but I haven't seen if the 500x includes these. Is there any way I can input a mic and apply the POD 500x's effects/looping to it? Thanks!

    Pod HD Pro X, Balanced Input?

    Just ordered a mic preamp and it's on its way.. I want to connect it to my Pod HD Pro X & as far as I know the best way to do this is to connect it to a line level input. However, in the manual it stated that the line input in the Pod HD Pro X is unbalanced. Now the real question: Will it deteriorate its sound if I connect my preamp to an unbalanced input? or is it better if I connect my preamp to the mic input and set the mic gain on the pod really low. Btw here is the chain going to look like: Shure sm7b > Preamp > Pod HD Pro X. I really dont want to buy an audio interface since the one in Pod is good enough to connect to my daw. Although, I'll buy one only if I have to :mellow: Thanks.
  14. I use cubase 5 and I can configure the ux2 to record with the mic input (XLR).

    How to tell if my preamp is dead?

    Looking around, I noticed a few reports of people's mic pres in the Helix burning out/not working anymore due to plugging in mics with the +48v option on and I'm fairly sure I've done that a few times in the past before :( When I throw the Studio Tube Pre into my signal chain, I have to put the level and gain at essentially 10 to get a usable signal. On top of that, my "Mic In Gain" selection in the global settings doesn't make a discernible difference whether it's at +0db or +60db. I've started using a dedicated phantom power unit box and left the switch on the Helix off, but there's no difference in volume or tone. This has been my go-to piece of equipment since December and I really hope that I'm just mentally deficient and am just missing a setting somewhere, and that my gear isn't completed screwed. Thanks!

    Pick noise ... why?

    I have always used round picking when playing. I use a 1.14mm pick. So I A/B'd my Mesa versus the Helix in my headphones. Not sure why but in the headphones when using the Helix I hear my pick which I assume must be heard in the front of the house and or monitor. While this may be due to how the electronics work (which I know little about) I am wondering if anyone has tips or solutions to this in the way of microphone placement to the speakers as much as tone settings on the amp models themselves. I am not a sound engineer, just a guitarist, however, I am doing my best to learn about the engineering aspect as it appears everyone in this forum who is well versed with the Helix has a foundational knowledge of sound engineering. So I thought I'd ask the following; 1) Which choice of microphone best works for live sound 2) Which choice of microphone best works for recorded sound (or is it the same mic for both live and recording) 3) How far from the speaker should the distance in the Helix be for the various modeled microphones (1", 2", 3", or beyond) Any other help would be greatly appreciated Thanks for any direction Dennis

    best ouput option for the podhd500x

    I use the Podhd500x for vocals and guitar live, i have the spider hd150 and im wondering the best output option, atm im going xlr L to mixer for vocals and xlr R to the amp using a XLR to jack, but is it best for me to go 1/4 inch jack to desk and 1/4 jack to amp? XLR is best for Vocals but im wondering if its best for guitar or not? On top of that what would be the best output setting? Direct out is good for vocals yet to a stack for guitar.
  18. Has anyone else tried to use the mic input on the Helix for vocals? When using just headphones, are you able to hear anything without turning the mic gain way up (which causes distortion) as well as the headphones volume? I've tried with a few different mics of varying types and nothing really helps (SM57, Neumann TLM102 w/phantom power turned on). I tried the template for guitar and vocals and I notice the same issue there. Its just entirely too quiet. Forget about hearing any sort of vocal if you are playing a guitar/bass at the same time. Am I the only one encountering this volume issue with the mic input? Thanks!
  19. I created the following Template as a routing scheme that devotes up to the maximum DSP power(both DSP processors) and 24 blocks to the electric guitar while leaving 8 blocks available for a second separate input and output such as acoustic guitar, mic, iPod, etc.. I use this for presets where Path 1 alone does not have enough DSP for my electric guitar patch but I also require a second input/output. This routing scheme gives me up to all the available DSP (both DSP processors) for the electric but also allows me to have a separate input/output for my acoustic guitar, mic, iPod, etc.. This Template sets up the first pair of input & output blocks from the Guitar input to the XLR output, and the second pair of input & output blocks from the Aux input to the 1/4 output but you can modify these to whatever you require. You can download my Template from the L6 CustomTone library here: http://line6.com/customtone/tone/1460280/
  20. Hi - am after some reasonably priced mic options for wireless Sax sound with Line 6 XD-V35L Cheers Zig
  21. So recently purchased my AT2035 and Line 6 UX2. While I have some knowledge of audio interfaces, I find myself a bit lost when it comes to my microphone's specific issue. I have found that the microphone levels are very low and even with a volume boost it sounds rather low quality. I have tested my mic with no presets and it sounds very quiet reaching only roughly around -25 db. I have also tested various presets and have found using the default studio vocal preset to be the best; a bit louder, but still very quiet. It may also be important to note that the Mic 1/L Gain is in this position: Below I have posted screenshots of my UX2 audio interface and have given a small audio sample. The first half of the audio file is with no pre-amps or effects added and the second half contains the default studio vocal preset. I still believe the mic to be too quiet and am at a loss as to what is causing this. Any help is greatly appreciated! Mic.mp3
  22. Hi. Can you use a microphone with Sonic Port. I read on another thread that you could, indeed, plug a mic into either the quarter inch jack or the 3.5mm input and it would work. Is this accurate? Thanks.
  23. I wonder if I could trouble you for a bit of advice? I’ve got a Line 6 XD-V30 wireless mic, which I wouldn’t mind taking out busking with me. Though the mic is wireless, the receiver needs a power supply 9v – 200ma. Could I get 4x 9v batteries, wire 2 pairs in series, making them collectivly 18v, then join them together in parallel, bringing the voltage back to 9v. Is my logic correct here, can I damage the receiver and how does this effect the 200ma side of things? Cheers!
  24. I currently own a DT25 combo and a Pod HD500X which I have connected via the Line6 Link cable. I am thinking of recording some music but the Dt25 is way too loud for my bedroom therefore I cannot mic it in high volume. Of course, if I do not crank it up, I would not get the sound I would want. The LVM is not enough for quality sound since it eliminates the power amp section of the amp. I was thinking of investing on an audio interface like the UX2 to record my music. My plan is to connect my amp to the audio interface through the Direct Out of the amp. If I follow this approach, I could disconnect the amp's connection with its cabinet so I wouldn't get any sound from the amp itself but I would get my sound from the monitors connected to the UX2. So if I have the amp's master volume amp cranked all the way up, I could adjust the volume from on my UX2 according to how I want but my recordings should sound as if it's coming from a cranked tube amp. Essentially, I would like to get the sound of a cranked tube amp sound in my recordings without disturbing my neighbors. Do you think this is a viable approach?

    Backtrack + Mic Issues?

    Haven't been able to find a thread regarding the Backtrack Plus mic products: So I used to use my Backtrack with my Windows, but ever since I got a Mac OSX my Backtrack won't work. It won't save a recorded file onto itself, nor will it show it when I plug it into the computer. I read somewhere that its a known issue. I have fixed the problem before by going into the system log and deleting the file that my mac keeps downloading onto the backtrack but everytime i plug it in again, it just reloads the bug. :/ For right now i just want to know what the file is called so i can delete it again, and then i will be able to record, then i can upload to a windows since my mac is gibing me this issue. i dont know what file to delete is what im saying.
