  1. 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 :)
  2. Deutsch Français Please review this link as a further explanation on topics that are covered in the document below: http://www.churchproduction.com/story/main/a-small-churchs-guide-to-working-with-wireless/3 As the environment is the biggest factor in wireless audio performance, there is a chance that certain environments and circumstances will not allow for satisfactory performance. This can be verified by successful performance in a different environment. This is an extremely informative video on how all wireless gear works in a WiFi rich environment RF mode switching Relay G30/50/90 and XDV70/75, if set up with the latest firmware have two RF modes. This means two separate sets of channels to choose from. First thing to try is switching your transmitter to another RF mode. Below are videos to help you switch over. Note: If you have multiple members in your band with Line 6 wireless, everyone needs to be on the same RF mode. Pre-Qualification: First Things To Rule Out: Use the factory power supply Try fresh alkaline batteries (a couple of times if it's a battery problem), not rechargables Try on more than one channel! Try in more than one place/venue Check the transmitter LEDs during drops/interference. RF dropouts result in the green LEDs going completely off. Even one green LED means the signal is present and something other than the wireless system is causing the problem. If you see full red LEDs followed by quickly shifting back to green, it means that the system has re-synced (normal if the dropout is too long). The red LEDs come on only if the intended signal from a Line 6 transmitter is not present. In this case, they are showing RF competing for the same space. Interference: Symptoms Reduction of RF LEDs on the front panel that indicate usable RF signal strength Audio signal muting Possible causes Trying to function at too great a distance Having unintentional transmitters, such as walkie talkies or in-ear monitors, too close to a receiver Significant amount of close-by RF signals within the same 2.4GHz range (Wi-Fi, microwave ovens, etc.) Suggestion "Walk test" your system in advance of an event over the entire desired range to verify that sufficient RF signal is available to avoid mutes from occurring With transmitter off and receiver turned on, scroll through the channels. Red LEDs indicate stray RF on that channel. Choose channels that exhibit the least red LEDs. Note: Line 6 wireless WILL still operate but at reduced range. Decreased Range Symptoms Reduction in range in general Reduced range indoors vs. outdoors Possible causes Blocked "Line of Sight" between the receiver's antennas and the transmitter's antennas Barriers such as walls or air-curtains can impede the path of radio waves Transmitter strength reduced if it must pass through walls Transmitting through earth (receiver in basement) Human bodies absorbing RF energy Cupping the bottom of the handheld mic (covering the antenna) Beltpack transmitter is used in pocket or next to skin Receiver antennas for the XD-V systems are very close to other intentional radiators in the same frequency band such as Wi-Fi wireless access points Incorrect cables on paddle antennas (requires low-loss 50-ohm cables; e.g. LMR-195) Suggestions Improve "Line of Sight" Use the XD-V70/G90 with remote paddle antennas and separate the antennas by several feet. G90 Users: Make certain that you have the proper antenna jacks selected in the setup window. C&D are the front antennas and A&B are the rear. The units may work even if you have it set incorrectly, but the range may be only 10-20 feet. There is also a position for "both" as the G90 can be used with 4 antennas for increased reliability. Weak Audio (thin audio output compared to other wireless systems) Symptom Weak and/or noisy audio output Possible causes Gain/trim settings on mixer need adjustment Plugging into a "line level" input Plugging into a channel with pads engaged Using a TRS plug in the 1/4" unbalanced output The "Environment Filter" may not operate correctly if signal is too weak, especially when using lav mics Suggestions Adjust gain/trim as if using a wired microphone Connect the XLR output (G90 only) on the receiver to an XLR input on the mixer Use a mono plug in the 1/4" unbalanced output, never a TRS plug Turn "Environment Filter" off Dropouts ("Audio" vs "RF" dropout: different paths to correct) Symptoms Audio signal interrupted Possible causes Transmitter on "low" power to save battery life and reduce RF interference to other devices Local conditions in one or more venues, e.g. a large Wi-Fi installation in close proximity, metal walls/roof Instruments or amps being used are faulty Signal chain issue Blocked "Line of Sight" between the receiver's antennas and the transmitter's antennas Transmitter is muted Loose antennas Antennas straight up and down or too close to walls Other XD-Vs/Relays operating on the same channel Unused transmitter too close to receiver Receiver's antennas near any transmitters such as walkie-talkies, In-Ear Monitors, etc Using a substitute power supply Batteries dying or unseated Suggestions Switch transmitter to "high" power Try a different venue to reproduce problem Try multiple instruments/amps to reproduce problem Trace signal through chain one component at a time. "Audio" LED lights when signal is received. Improve "Line of Sight" by moving receiver or taking transmitter out of pocket Unmute transmitter. On the G50/G90/V70 transmitter, the LCD screen remains lit when in mute mode. Raise antennas to 6-8 feet high while avoiding obstacles such as metal posts, walls, etc. Ensure antennas are connected firmly and splayed at 90 degrees with nothing touching them Ensure each system has its own unique channel to operate on Move intended transmitter closer to receiver than unintended transmitter to eliminate "near/far" issue. Switch closer transmitter to low power when possible. Provide ample distance between the XD-V receiver and other transmitters. The distance will depend on the strength of the transmitter and the gain of the transmitting antenna. Use the factory power supply or one that can supply the required 9v DC current: XD-V - 350 ma, G30 - 200mA, G50 - 300 mA. If you are using a pedalboard supply, it must be able to supply this amount of power to the receiver in addition to whatever else you have plugged into it. Reinstall batteries or replace them. If using rechargables, try with standard alkaline to test. Perform channel scan (XDV 70/G90 sytems only) The Scan Channel feature checks all available channels for interference, and recommends the best channels to use: • Press Channel Select button, then press the Setup Button. • The Display shows all 14 possible channels. The best channels are highlighted, and if the transmitter is on there’s also indication of which channel that’s currently set to. • Turn the Edit knob to select one of the channels that’s highlighted as best to use, and select that same channel on the transmitter Q: Does USB 3.0 create interference in the 2.4GHz frequency range? A: USB 3.0 computer cables and peripherals, including hard drives, are known to emit radio frequency interference throughout the 2.4GHz band, which results in reduced range and/or performance for any 2.4GHz device in its proximity (including wireless keyboard or mouse, WiFi, etc.). We recommend placing any digital wireless receivers at least two meters away from the USB 3.0 device and its cabling. Below is a link to a study by Intel regarding this interference. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/io/universal-serial-bus/usb3-frequency-interference-paper.html References for working with wireless systems http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-line-of-sight_propagation http://www.djsociety.org/Wireless.htm Digital Wireless Audio Fehlerbehebung Bitte klicken Sie auf folgenden Link um weitere Erklärung über dieses Thema zu erhalten: http://www.churchproduction.com/story/main/a-small-churchs-guide-to-working-with-wireless/3 Da die Umgebung der größte Faktor der kabellosen Audio-Performance ist, gibt es auch eine Chance, dass gewisse Umgebungen und Umstände keine zufriedenstellende Performance ermöglichen. Dies kann anhand eines Tests in einer anderen Umgebung überprüft werden. Voraussetzungen und die ersten Dinge, die es auszuschließen gilt: Benutzen Sie das originale, mitgelieferte Netzteil. Versuchen Sie mehrere Male neue Alkaline Batterien, keine aufladbaren. Versuchen Sie es auf mehreren Kanälen. Versuchen Sie es an anderen Austragungsorten und Plätzen. Überprüfen Sie den Transmitter-LED während einer Störung oder eines Ausfalls. Wenn die grünen LEDs ausgehen, dann ist das ein RF Ausfall. Sogar nur ein grünes LED bedeutet, dass ein Signal besteht und etwas anderes ist die Problemquelle. Wenn alle roten LEDs leuchten und dann plötzlich auf grün wechseln, bedeutet das, dass das System neu synchronisiert hat. (Dies ist normal, wenn der Ausfall zu lange andaurt.) Die roten LEDs gehen nur dann an, wenn kein Signal vorhanden ist. Interferenzen: Symptome: Weniger RF LEDs leuchten auf der Vorderseite auf. Audio Signal verstummt. Mögliche Problemquellen: Der Versuch, das System auf zu großer Distanz laufen zu lassen. Ungewollte Sender, wie Walkie-Talkies oder In-Ear Monitore, die zu nah am Empfänger sind. Viele RF Signale im selben 2.4GHz Frequenzbereich. (WiFi, Mikrowelle, etc.) Vorschläge: Testen Sie Ihr System im Vorfeld bei benötigter Reichweite um zu überprüfen, ob genügend RF Signal vorhanden ist um Stummschaltungen durch Interferenzen zu vermeiden. Scrollen Sie durch die Kanäle während der Sender an- und der Empfänger ausgeschaltet ist. Rote LEDs bedeuten, dass das RF Signal verstreut ist. Wählen Sie einen Kanal, der am wenigsten rote LEDs anzeigt. Achtung, Line 6 Wireless wird auch bei mehr roten LEDs funktionieren jedoch mit verringerter Reichweite. Verringerte Reichweite: Symptome: Verringerte Reichweite im Generellen. Weniger Reichweite innen als außen. Mögliche Fehlerquellen: Versperrte Sichtlinie zwischen Empfänger-Antenne und Sender-Antenne. Barrieren, wie Wände oder Luft-Vorhänge können den Weg der Funkwellen beeinträchtigen. Die Stärke des Sender ist verringert wenn das Signal durch Wände muss. Senden durch Erdboden (z.B. Empfänger im Untergeschoss.) Menschliche Körper, die RF Energie absorbieren. Die Unterseite des kabellosen Mikrofons festhalten. (Mikrofon bedecken.) Beltpack Sender in der Hosentasche oder nahe der Haut. Empfänger-Antennen, wie die des XD-V Systems sind sehr nah an anderen unerwünschten Sendern in der selben Frequenzreichweite, wie z.B. WiFi Zugriffspunkte. Falsche Kabel an Paddel-Antennen angeschlossen. (benötigen verlustarme 50 Ohm Kabel, z.B. LMR-195) Vorschläge: Verbessern Sie die Sichtlinie. Benutzen Sie das XD-V70/G90 mit Paddel-Antennen und verteilen Sie die Antennen 1-2 Meter voneinander. G90 Benutzer: Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie die korrekten Antennenanschlüsse im Setup Menu ausgewählt haben. C und D sind für die vorderen Antennen und A und B sind für die hinteren. Vielleicht funktioniert das ganze auch bei falscher Einstellung aber dann ist die Reichweite nur bei 3-6 Metern. Es gibt auch eine Postion "Both" beim G90, da es mit 4 Antennen benutzt werden kann um die Zuverlässigkeit zu verbessern. Schwaches Audiosignal. (Wenig Audio-Output im Gegensatz zu anderen kabellosen Systemen.) Symptom: Schwaches und/oder rauschender Ton. Mögliche Gründe: Die Gain/Trim Einstellungen brauchen eine Anpassung. Anschluss an einen "Line Level" Eingang. Anschluss an einen Kanal, dessen Absenkung (Pad) angeschaltet ist. Die Nutzung eines TRS Steckers mit einem 6.35mm asymmetrischen Ausgang. Der "Environment Filter" funktioniert vielleicht nicht korrekt wenn das Signal zu schwach ist, besonders wenn Sie lav Mikrofone verwenden. Vorschläge: Stellen Sie Gain/Trim ein als ob Sie ein Mikrofon mit Kabel verwenden würden. Verbinden Sie den XLR Ausgang (nur G90) auf dem Empfänger mit dam XLR Eingang des Mixers. Benutzen Sie einen Mono Stecker für den 6.35mm asymmetrischen Ausgang, niemals einen TRS. Schalten Sie den "Environment Filter" ab. Ausfälle: Symptome: Unterbrochenes Audiosignal. Mögliche Gründe: Sender steht auf "Low" um Batterie zu sparen und RF Interferenzen bei anderen Geräten zu verringern. Lokale Bedingungen auf verschiedenen Veranstaltungsorten wie z.B. eine große WiFi Installation vor Ort, die nahe Ihres Systems ist, sowie Metallwände oder Dächer. Instrumente oder Verstärker , die verwendet werden sind fehlerhaft/defekt. Problem in der Signalkette. Sichtlinie zwischen Antenne des Empfängers und Antenne des Senders blockiert. Der Sender ist stummgeschaltet. Lockere Antennen. Antennen sind vertikal aufgestellt oder zu nah an einer Wand. Andere XD-V/Relay Systeme werden im selben Kanal betrieben. Die Antennen des Empfängers sind zu nah an anderen Sender wie z.B. Walkie-Talkies oder In-Ear Monitoren. Die Nutzung eines Ersatznetzteils. Batterien wird leer oder sitzt nicht korrekt. Vorschläge: Schalten Sie den Transmitter auf "High". Versuchen Sie es in einer anderen Umgebung um das Problem zu reproduzieren. Versuchen Sie verschiedene Instrumente/Verstärker um so das Problem zu reproduzieren. Verfolgen Sie das Signal durch die Kette ein Gerät nach dem anderen. "Audio" LEDs gehen an, wenn ein Signal besteht. Verbessern Sie die Sichtlinie indem Sie den Empfänger versetzen oder den Sender aus der Hosentasche nehmen. Heben Sie die Stummschaltung auf. Auf den G50/G90/V70 Sender bleibt der LCD Bildschirm auch dann an, wenn das Gerät im Stumm-Modus ist. Bringen Sie die Antennen auf eine 2-3Meter höhere Position während Sie andere Hindernisse wie Metallpfosten oder Wände. Stellen Sie sicher, dass die Antennen ordentlich befestigt und 90Grad gespreizt sind sodass nichts sie berührt. Stellen Sie sicher, dass jedes System seinen eigenen Kanal hat. Bewegen Sie den beabsichtigten Sender näher an den Empfänger als den nicht beabsichtigten um so Near/Far Problemen vorzubeugen. Schalten Sie den näheren Sender auf "Low" wenn möglich. Sorgen Sie für reichlich Platz zwischen XD-V Empfänger und anderen Sender. Die Distanz hängt von der Stärke des Senders und Gain von der sendenen Antenne ab. Verwenden Sie das mitgelieferte Netzteil oder eines, welches 9V Gleichstrom (XD-V – 350mA, G30 – 200mA, G50 – 300mA) liefert. Wenn Sie ein Pedalboard Netzteil verwenden muss diese diesen Strom liefern auch mit anderen angeschlossenen Geräten. Stecken Sie die Batterien neu ein oder ersetzen Sie diese. Wenn Sie aufladbare Batterien benutzen, versuchen Sie es mit Alkaline Batterien. Entstehen Interferenzen durch USB 3.0 im 2,4GHz Frequenzbereich? USB 3.0 Computerkabel und –geräte sind dafür bekannt Interferenzen bei Radio Frequenzen im 2,4GHz Bereich zu erzeugen was zu verringerter Reichweite und Performance für alle 2.4GHz Geräte (inklusive kabellose Tastatur oder Maus sowie WiFi und viele andere) in der Nähe führen kann. Wir empfehlen alle digitalen Kabellosempfänger mindestens 2m von den USB 3.0 Geräten und deren Verkablung weit weg zu plazieren. Nachstehend können Sie einen Link zur Untersuchung von Intel über Interferenzen mit USB 3.0 finden: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/io/universal-serial-bus/usb3-frequency-interference-paper.html Referenzen um mit kabellosen Systemen zu arbeiten: (Englisch) http://en.wikipedia....ght_propagation http://www.djsociety.org/Wireless.htm Dépannage audio numérique sans fil: Veuillez visiter le site web suivant pour des informations supplémentaires concernant ce sujet s.v.p.: http://www.churchproduction.com/story/main/a-small-churchs-guide-to-working-with-wireless/3 L'environnement est le facteur le plus important dans la performance audio sans fil, donc il y en a une possibilité que certains environnements et cas ne permettent pas le bon déroulement. Ceci peut-être vérifié par un bon rendement dans un environnement différent. Conditions: Premières choses à exclure: Utilisez l'alimentation fournie d'usine. Essayez des batteries alcalines nouvelles. Essayez dans plusieurs places/lieus. Surveillez le LED du transmetteur au cours des interférences et chutes. Les échecs de RF causent le LED vert de s'éteindre. Un LED vert veut dire que ce n'est pas le système sans fil. Si vous voyez des LEDs rouges qui changent à vert rapidement veut dire que le système a resynchronisé (c'est une réaction si l'échec prend trop longtemps). Les LED rouges s'allument si le récepteur ne reçoit aucun signal d'un transmetteur Line 6. Interférence: Symptômes: Réduction des LEDs sur le panneau avant qui indique la puissance du signal RF utilisable. Signal audio en sourdine. Causes possibles: Essayer de fonctionner à une trop grande distance. Transmetteurs involontaires, comme walkie talkies ou moniteurs in-earqui sont trop près du récepteur. Quantité significative des signaux RF près dans la gamme 2.4GHz. (WiFi, micro-ondes, etc.) Propositions: Testez votre système avant l'événement sur la gamme de fréquences pour vérifier qu'assez de signal RF est disponible. Comme-ca vous pouvez éviter les interférences. Avec transmetteur éteint et récepteur allumé, faites défiler les canaux. Les LED rouges indiquent que le signal RF est dispersé sur ce canal. Choisissez le canal qui montre le moins LEDs rouges. Gamme diminuée: Symptômes: Réduction de gamme en général. Gamme réduite à l'intérieur par rapport à l'extérieur. Causes possibles: Ligne de mire bloquée entre le récepteur et les antennes du transmetteur. Les barrières comme murs ou rideaux d'air peuvent entraver le trajet des ondes radio. Puissance du transmetteur réduit à cause des murs. Transmettre à travers la terre. (récepteur sous-sol) Corps humains absorbent d'énergie RF. Couvrir le bas du microphone donc couvrir l'antenne. Transmetteur Beltpack en poche ou près de la peau. Câbles incorrectes des antennes paddles. (requis des câbles faible perte 50Ohms comme le LMR-195.) Propositions: Améliorez la ligne de mire. Utilisez le XD-V70/G90 avec des antennes paddles à distance et séparez les antennes 1 ou 2 mètres. Utilisateurs G90: Assurez vous que vous avec sélecté les propres jacks antennes dans la fenêtre Setup. C et D sont les antennes de devant et A et B en arrière. Peut-être que cela va fonctionner même si c'est configuré faux mais ca réduit la gamme à 3-6 mètres. Il y en a aussi une position "Both" parce que le G90 peut-être utilisé avec 4 antennes pour fiabilité augmentée. Audio faible (sortie audio maigre par rapport aux autres systèmes sans fil.) Symptômes: Sortie de son faible et/ou bruyant. Causes possibles: Réglages Gain/Trim ont besoin d'un ajustement. Brancher dans une entrée "Line Level". Brancher dans un canal avec pad atténuateur activé. L'utilisation d'une fiche TRS dans une sortie 6.35mm asymétrique. Le «Environment Filter» ne peut pas fonctionner correctement si le signal est trop faible, en particulier lors de l'utilisation des micros à lav Propositions: Ajustez Gain/Trim comme avec un micro à câble. Connectez la sortie XLR (seulement pour le G90) du récepteur avec une entrée XLR du mélangeur. Utilisez une fiche Mono dans la sortie 6.35mm asymétrique. Jamais un TRS. Désactivez le "Environment Filter". Décrochages: Symptômes: Signal audio interrompu. Possibles causes: Le transmetteur est sur puissance "Low" pour économiser la batterie et réduire les interférences RF à autres appareils. Conditions locales comme une installation WiFi large en proximité ou des murs en métal. Instruments ou amplis utilisés sont défectueux. Erreur de la chaîne de signaux. Ligne de mire bloquée entre le récepteur et les antennes du transmetteur. Transmetteur en sourdine. Antennes relâchés. Antennes exactement verticales ou trop près du mur. Autres appareils XD-V/Relay sui fonctionnent sur ​​le même canal. Transmetteur inutile trop près du récepteur. Antennes du récepteur trop près à autres transmetteurs comme walkie-talkies, moniteurs in-ear, etc. L'utilisation d'une alimentation de remplacement. Batteries qui meurent ou sont relâchés. Propositions: Mettez le transmetteur sur "High". Essayez un autre lieu pour reproduire le problème. Essayez autre instruments et amplis pour reproduite le problème. Tracez le signal à travers de la chaîne un composant à la fois. "Audio" LED lorsque le signal est reçu. Améliorez la ligne de mire en déplaçant le récepteur ou prenant l'émetteur hors de la poche. Réactivez l'émetteur. Pour les transmetteurs G50/G90/V70, l'écran LCD reste allumé si en mode en sourdine. Déplacez les antennes 2-3 mètres vers le haut en évitant les obstacles comme des poteaux métalliques, murs, etc... Assurez-vous que les antennes sont connectées correctement et évasés à 90 degrés sans rien les toucher. Assurez-vous que tous les systèmes ont un canal séparé. Déplacez l'émetteur destiné plus proche du récepteur que l'émetteur non désirées pour éliminer le problème "near / far". Mettez l'émetteur plus proche sur "Low" lorsque c'est possible. Donnez une distance suffisante entre le récepteur XD-V et autres transmetteurs. La distance dépend de la puissance du transmetteur et du Gain de l'antenne qui transmet. Utilisez l'alimentation fournie d'usine ou une alimentation de 9V CC: XD-V – 350mA, G30 – 200mA, G50 - 300mA. Si vous utilisez une alimentation pedalboard, il doit livrer cette énergie à l'émetteur. Réinstallez les batteries ou remplacez-les. Si vous utilisez des rechargeables, essayez des alcalines pour tester. Est-ce que USB 3.0 crée des interférences dans la gamme de fréquences 2,4 GHz? Les câbles et périphériques USB 3.0 sont connus pour émettre des interférences de fréquence radio dans la bande 2,4 GHz, que cause une gamme et/ou performance des appareils 2.4 GHz réduite dans la proximité. (Y inclus sont les claviers ou souris sans fil, WiFi, etc.) Nous recommandons de placer le récepteur sans fil numérique au moins 2 mètres loin des appareils USB 3.0 et ses câbles.

  3. 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
  4. Hello. I am the happy owner of an helix LT and a PC112+. It’s a really powerful combination and I didn’t think I’d see any limitations with this setup for some years. But fate might have caught up with me already. The thing is I’m doing a small solo gig in a few days. I was going to run my guitar and my mic through the helix - only to discover that the LT doesn’t have an extra XLR. That’s exclusive to the full Helix. Instead I now run my mic straight into the PC in FRFR mode (through the mic1 with some gain). And the helixLT through the digital port on same PC. That gives me guitar and vocals alright. But the vocals are dry as the desert. And next to the sweet tone I’m getting on my guitar the contrast is grave. so my question is: is there ANY way I can unlock some reverb for my mic using this setup? Or is this destiny telling me to always go with the biggest and most expensive option possible when buying gear? thanks a bunch guys.
  5. I have a Floor that’s about 2 years old. Always worked fine until yesterday. I have a lot of patches set up with three paths: one to FOH from 1/4, one to my amp from send 1 and a Mic path to xlr. I use a harmoniser and megaphone on this path from my vocal mic. At rehearsal the mic path was dead and after investigating it’s seems to be a problem with the mic input. I’ve tried daisy chaining the cables in and out (mic works) but as soon as I put the cables through the Helix I get nothing! Other inputs all produce sound. I don’t ‘think’ I’ve switched something and I’ve checked connections, paths etc and also tried to set up a new patch with just a vocal path and that doesn’t work either. Nor do patches set to use my condenser (powered) into my DAW (so I can’t record vocals :-(). Helix is kept in its padded backpack. Any ideas as to what I may have done or anyone had anything similar? Thanks!
  6. Hi, I use a (Hardware-) Helix for all my recordings and especially the way of "recording dry and processing afterwards" (with Helix Native) works fine - but only for the source Guitar-In (USB-7). I recently tried to do the same with a mic-signal and expected the unprocessed signal being available on USB-8 but I have no opportunity to select the source "USB-8" in my DAW (Cubase 10 on Mac Catalina). A deeper look in the Studio Setup of Cubase reveals, that only the Inputs 1, 2 ,7 and Outputs 1,2 are marked active, the remaining ports are shown as "Inactive" (and I cannot alter the state in "Studio Setup" of Cubase). In Global Settings of Helix "Re-amp Source" points to USB-8 and is assigned to "Mic", which imho should be correct. So, any idea how to switch the "Inactive" ports to "Active"? Thanks in advance ;-)
  7. Hi folks, I am not very familiar with audio so forgive me if I ask a stupid question. For my live- streaming session I bought a XD-V75L but I struggle to get a good sound. My audio level is very low ( barely goes above first line in the meter) . The only option I found is in the receiver “ output level”. But I am looking for input level though. Since I didn’t find it, I put the output level to +12db. But then I get really bad noise. Any advice how to set it up to get good sound with minimal noise? Appreciated, vivi
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. For some reason in the Line 6 POD Farm it shows that my "In" is maxed out and my "Out" is also maxed out. I put all the settings that youtubers recommend for my mic to no avail. And whenever i listen to what the mic is picking up, the sound is loud echoing noises. Not sure what that's about in all honesty. Whenever i plug in the XLR cable into the line 6 or mic, the Circles go all the way to max. I have no idea how to make it stop and how to hear my voice. I'll post my settings via Gyazo Links. My goal was just to record some lines with a good sounding microphone, and i learned that USB Mics are usually bad sounding. But im just even more lost now. Any help and ideas are always appreciated https://gyazo.com/3750802600e4e9f1ecec2cff0efe2646 https://gyazo.com/13c1a026ba9b93db8cbd73a846a9db6c https://gyazo.com/f4401cc06392e784939edf2dbe5776a4 https://gyazo.com/ff40f478b9b9e02915dfae5ecfafa27a https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/355779902244519936/764216411698102312/IMG_20201009_160245278.jpg https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/355779902244519936/764216412746940467/IMG_20201009_160231594.jpg
  11. Hello Line 6ers, I’m teaching a man called Graham and he owns a Line 6 unit. I followed the instructions in this post and managed to create a dual path preset in Helix. I selected the Input block on one path and set it to guitar, did the same for the mic, etc. I successfully setup a DAW called Cakewalk on Windows and made a template with 3 tracks: 1 gtr left channel, 1 gtr right channel, 1 mic track. Graham is happy with this but he wants to know if its possible for him to use a preset (or at least some effects) so he can get the guitar effects coming through on the gtr channels while he sings. Is this possible? If we can't use effects-laden presets, can we copy the effects from existing presets and add them in? I noticed that a lot of presets use ‘two paths’ for all of their effects. Does this mean that we will be limited in our range of effects (and routing options) given that one our ‘paths’ is being taken up by the mic input? If the guitars have to be recorded dry with no effects (or only some of the desired effects), what’s the easiest way of re-amping or getting the recorded audio to run through a plugin or the Line 6 unit itself? Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi, I've had the UX2 for a while and really like it. I've used it to stream and record guitar for some time, though always used a USB mic for commentary. I wanted to upgrade so have bought an XLR mic that I wish to use through the UX2 interface. However, I can have my streaming software (OBS) record the UX2 so that it captures both the guitar and mic, so that's no issue. The issue is that I cannot monitor just the guitar, while streaming/recording the mic audio. Is there a way to just mintor guitar, while capturing the mic audio also? Thanks
  13. Can someone help, as line6 don't seem to care. My xd-v75 drains the batteries so fast sometimes after installing a new battery at the beginning of a set by the end I have to replace them, yet when I test them, they are still full. Any advice welcome
  14. I am looking to use POD Farm to help clean up a simple USB headset mic. Some day I will get a good mic and interface but for now I just need to do some narration of a PPT presentation and would like the sound to be better. Any ideas?

  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
