  1. Hi Line 6 forum, My question is: Has anyone been able to successfully connect the Razer Sieren Pro with the UX2? If yes, How is this achieved? I've unboxed from new and fully installed PODFarm v2.59 & Line 6 Monkey/ Authorized my UX2 to my PC. My objective is to use the UX2 and PODFarm as a voice morphing/ changer for creative gaming purposes. The Razer Sieren Pro has three outputs: USB, Headphone/ AUX female jack and a DMX 5-pin output with a Y split XLR adaptor cable (one 5-pin into two 3-pin). The Razer Sieren Pro works correctly when connected directly to the PC, however the PODFarm voice morphing software doesn't transmit out through the Microphone. I've browsed many forums and tutorials and have tried the basic adjustments i;e: Adjusted the UX2 dials and enabling the phantom +48V button, tried multiple UX2 line/ microphone ports/ inputs/ outputs with the above mentioned cable/ AUX cable and also an aftermarket adaptor cable (one 5-pin to one 3-pin) , changing the PODFarm mixer INPUT: Mic 1 and tried the various other inputs, enabling UX2 as default through Windows 10 sound settings and disabling all other audio and recording inputs/ outputs. Still no success. Any clarity or result would be much appreciated, cheers.

    Helix XLR Latency Issue

    I recently purchased the Helix and I was trying to use the XLR in a PA. However when I plugged in there was latency, very noticeable latency. I could almost hear my initial pluck of the string, but very, very faint and then the actual sound comes in late. I would expect this from the USB PC connection, but very strange with the XLR to a PA. I have no latency issues through the 1/4" or USB connection I looked all over the setting, manual, forums, youtube and could not find anything on this. HELP...
  3. As Spider V Firmware 1.05 Release Notes promises: "New Global setting: "Phones Mode" switches the headphone output between normal operation (Phone) and stereo line out (Line) for connecting to a mixer or audio interface without muting the speakers. In Line out mode, the headphone output is not affected by the position of the master volume, nor the presence of a cable inserted into the Phones jack. This is primarily for use on a Spider V that does not include XLR outputs."I upgraded firmware on my Spider V 60, but this does not work for me, mode "line" mutes speakers.

    Helix direct to PA settings

    Hey Helix fans, I am trying to get a descent sound from my Helix LT direct to PA through XLR. Problem is: it always sounds to edgy/fizzy when using any kind of distortion And instead of adjusting each effect with a super low "treble" setting, I'd prefer to use them just as I would real pedals into an amp, so I stay familiar with them. I've added a global high-pass filter to 8k... but still, I find it kinda just gives a "pillow over speaker" effect Any Amp/Cabinet combo settings you would suggest that might be ideal? Any suggestions for global settings? EQ settings? Thanks everyone
  5. How do you guys setup your xlr out level for recording into audio interface? Rather have a strong signal with line level or rather send out a lower mic level to sound card in order to have more headroom flexibility? Generally, I find the sound quality better going into an audio interface than recording through usb option. THis leads me to a second question.: Can I only record a DI signal when recording through USB? Thanks, Cheers!

    NO OUTPUT

    Hello I've just bought the LINE6 FIREHAWK,I have played for one hour, then I plug my headphones. When I've unplugged my headphone, no signal came out (XLR),. I've made a downgrade,then upgrade... factory restore... NO OUTPUT! Please, help me! txs
  7. I have searched high and low and have not found a straightforward answer. I have an HD500x on the way and a pair of Rokit 6 G3 to pair with it. The Rokit 6's have the following inputs: Balanced XLR Balanced TRS(1/4" jack) Unbalanced RCA I believe I have read that it is preferred to use the unbalanced 1/4" output on the HD500X as the XLR output signal is low. Can I connect the 1/4" unbalanced out to the 1/4" balanced TRS on the Rokits? What cable should I be using? Or should I use a 1/4" unbalanced to RCA cable? I am so confused! Thanks for the help.
  8. Is it possible to split the two (Left and Right) XLR outs for two different tasks. Say the Left out for the Mic input and the Right out for guitar only? Thanks!!

    V120 - XLR Outs Silence the Amp?

    I tried to connect a PA using a cable from the XLR out, but the amp speakers are then silenced. I would like to use the amp as a monitor while sending the signal to a PA. Is there a way to have the amp on with an XLR cable connected? Or can this be done using a cable in the headphone out connection?

    G10/XLR to Amp

    I would like to run my G10 to two amps using both outputs, but can't seem to get it to work. I have an unbalanced XLR to 1/4" TS cable, but all I get when I plug it in is a load hum. This happens in both amps. What am I missing here? Do I have the right cable? Or is it a bad (new) cable? Thanks!
  11. I'm somewhat layman in my understanding of this stuff, so bear with me if I seem confused. And sorry I've got so many questions. I'll be happy just to get some of them answered. 1) Do the x3 Live's balanced XLR outputs do what an active DI box does? UPDATE: The best official spec sheet I've found is this, and it's incomplete. http://line6.com/media/ips/uploads//monthly_08_2013/ccs-1070239-0-58043700-1376440351.jpg But apparently some user did some investigating and came up with these additional specs. http://www.benvesco.com/blog/the-digital-age/2007/pod-x3-specs-revealed/ 2) Do the XLR direct L&R outs supply a.)somewhat preamped signal? b.) lower impedance than the signal coming from my passive guitar pickups? I've read that this is what an active DI box does, yet the outputs are intended for XLR mic inputs on the mixing board, and mic level is even lower than instrument or -10 to +4 dB line level...which is seemingly the exact opposite of being preamped, so I'm confused about this. UPDATE: As for b.), yes, almost surely. As for the preamping confusion, "Mixing-console mic inputs in a live-sound context typically expect to handle signal levels from maybe as low as -55dBu, up to about +5dBu.", whereas passive guitar pickups might only get as high as 0dBu, so although mic level is normally low, it can be higher than instrument level too. 3) I've read that using a balanced line (before and after amplification?) will eliminate AC ground loop hum, so shouldn't every guitarist do this as a failsafe, even though there are other ways to prevent ground loop hum? ...rather than using the 1/4" outs that aren't balanced with no DI box. UPDATE: In addition to the balanced advantage, passive DIs apparently provide some reduction of ground loop hum because they use transformers that literally break the signal path (galvanic isolation), so the ground loop is broken. https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/prepare-di 4) What about the 1/4" outputs, and what level do they send at? UPDATE: They send at line level or instrument level, depending on what the "Line Out Level" switch is set to. If I use the 1/4" outputs to send to a physical combo amp and I turn the X3 Live's Amp and Cab emulation off by manually switching both to the off state, does that achieve the same thing as choosing "Combo Front" for the X3's 1/4" Outputs setting, or does it achieve the same thing as the "Combo Pwramp" setting instead...or neither? 5) With regard to using a different amp simulation VST that is not the X3's (running on a computer), yet using the X3 as an analog input device (so not using its USB capabilty) into that computer... and therefore needing to first send my guitar signal into a computer's audio interface... the audio interface is of course made to accept unadulterated instrument level signal straight from a guitar. But I once had a Zoom c5.1t fx pedal that had a built in tube\solid state preamp. And I liked how this c5.1t shaped the sound with its preamps, so assuming my ears and my taste are good, shouldn't it be a good thing to look for something to similarly preamp my guitar's clean signal before it reaches the amp simulation VST, to help it out a little so that I'm starting with a good base sound? I'm questioning if I could use the X3 in a similar manner as how I once used the c5.1t as a preamp (sending via either 1/4" or via balanced XLR outputs). Wouldn't it also reduce noise a bit by making the signal hotter earlier in the signal chain?
  12. Hi! I'm from the Philippines and the gigging scenario is usually like this. Most of the time clubs here would have a decently powered guitar amp (50-100w) but not all clubs mike the amps so it can sit well in the mix with the vocals, drums, and bass. I use an HD500x. To get more consistent sound both on stage and at the audience I was thinking of sending the PL outs to the onstage guitar amp's FX return, and the XLR outs to the PA. The problem I have though is that if I set up my patches with any of the cab sims on, the FOH sound may be good, but the stage sound from the amp would be usually muddy. If I set the output mode to Combo Power amp, I know I would get a good sound on stage but I fear that I would have that harsh DI no cab sim sound coming out of the PA. So I guess my questions boil down to the following: 1. Do the XLR outs have some sort of "always on" compensation / speaker sim even if the active patch has the cab sim turned off? 2. If not, then I would have to turn on cab sim so that the HD500x's XLR PA feed would sound right, correct? How do I now make the stage amp sound good in this set up since the cab sim already colors the sound? Thank you MH

    HD500x Output options

    Hi Guys, probably another beginner question if you don't mind. :) So far, I have tried the TRS (Amp mode), S/PDIF, and Phones output of my HD500x. They all sound different and I believe I have yet to dial in the best sound from them. Lately, I am inclined to try out the XLR output of my unit. My question now is, is there any significant differences in output between the S/PDIF and the XLR output? I mean, yes, one is analog and the other one is digital, but am I missing out on a significant difference in sound quality? Or am I missing out on a feature of the HD500x if I do not use the XLR output? I plan to send the XLR output to my monitor speakers via RCA input. One more question, if I use the TRS output in line mode, will it be the same sound I would get from the XLR output (minus the XLR and TRS noise cancellation feature)? Thanks in advance guys! Cheers!
  14. The right appears to have this little plate near the top. My connectors snap in place with the left but don't on the right.
  15. Hi all, I've just upgraded from Amplifi 150 to FH1500 so I'm not too sure about the input/outputs yet. One reason I upgraded was that I could play both electric and acoustic through the amp. I'm not the sound man in the band and the one that is isn't too happy about line6 but I am. Question; can I plug both electric and acoustic in at the same time? I have an Acoustic with XLR out and a Variax Standard connected with a Line6 G10 so which inputs would I use. That might sound a bit basic, but it would really help if anyone could help. Line 6, user manuals would really help. Stew

    XLR Left out to Church board help

    So i have read a bunch of posts and wondered if there are any tips to apply to my patches and settings to get the best sound, knowing that i will not have stereo (left/right) and can only use mono (left) XLR to the house. 1. Should i make all my patches pan left 100%? 2. Should i set my XLR out to Mic Level instead of Line level? Anything else to consider?

    Output routing - best of both worlds?

    I apologize if this was asked previously elsewhere. I tried perusing the manuals and searching the forums... For the last 4 years, I have been using Guitar Rig with Rig Kontrol live. Honestly, I might still be a happy user if NI would keep their products up-to-date and not discontinue their hardware. :angry: I can't do a live show anymore without experiencing bad audio drop-outs and worse. Time to ditch and look elsewhere... One of the cool things I was able to do with GR, however, was route speaker simulation (cab sim, etc.) to ONLY one side of the outputs. My common setup was to run the output with NO cab sim to my on-stage amp, and the output with the cab sim ON to the DI/PA system. The tones were just a little off from each other, but my stage amp has V30's, and so I'd run the V30 cab sim for the house line, and with a little EQ, I was a pretty happy camper. This became the better option, rather than A) Mic'ing the stage cab for the house feed (not a fan), and B] Running the cab sim ON to my amp signal (Redundant yuck.), or C) Using NO cab sim (horrible shrill line out). So obviously, that's my question. Can you, somehow, route the outputs on the HD500X in such a way where the speaker simulation is running to, say, the Balanced XLR output(s) - meanwhile the 1/4" amp outputs disengage any cab sim? Or...is there another option/configuration I'm not aware of that addresses this issue? Thanks for the help!

    Microphones with HD500

    Does anyone know if my HD500 will work with a condenser microphone? I'm pretty sure I have set the inputs up correctly on the HD500 but am wondering if the XLR microphone connection does not provide the phantom power supply the mic needs I looked around to try and find the technical specifications for the HD500 but couldn't find it anywhere
  19. After enjoying my HD500 for years (i think i bought it when they'd been out 6 months or so) I hit a problem at a gig on Saturday. I hadn't used the POD for a few years, but I remember updating the firmware every few months just in case I was going to get it out and play! Then comes the time I actually get back into gigging and on stage I discover the XLR outputs aren't working! On further investigation the headphone out isn't working either, but S/PDIF and 1/4 outs are fine. Here's the steps i've taken: 1) I rolled it back as far as v2.31 with the Monkey - no change 2)So I went waaaaaaay back to v1.43.00 and it still didn't work - and i know that back when that was the latest firmware it most definitely DID work. I've got everything on MAX, got a hot signal from the 1/4 and am running the XLRs into a pre-amp set at instrument level with a lot of gain and its dead. 3) Went back to the latest v2.31 - it now crashes just after boot up 4) did a Safe Mode re-flash - same 5) did a global parameter reset and flash - it lives! 6) XLR still doesnt work Does anyone have any suggestions of things to try? I'm out of ideas. Is there a single module in the unit that controls the headphones and XLRs? Anyone know if it's fixable? I guess if I gig again I can just take a DI box with me :(
  20. 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.

  22. First post here, any & all help is appreciated. Gear- JTV59, POD HD500X, (2) EV ELX 112P Variax is set to input 1, Mic is set to input 2, & I can go in to my powered monitors with either 1/4" or XLR. I could also go in to ONE of my monitors (1/4" or XLR) from my POD & "daisy chain" via the XLR "link" from one monitor to the next. I'm not concerned with having a stereo signal going to my monitors. My powered monitors are exactly as shown in the illustration attached, each having TWO (XLR or 1/4") inputs with their own independent volume controls & a master for overall. Any ideas on the best POD HD500X configuration/connections to allow me SEPARATE volume control of guitar & Mic on my monitors ? To pan, or not to pan in my POD mixer is also eluding me. Thnx for your help !
  23. Hello everyone. I know there are already a couple of threads with users reporting hiss and issues with XLR output to their board. In summary it appears this is mainly due to the board sending phantom power to the Helix. My ask to the community to help others is what is the recommended configuration for sending your Helix guitar signal "Mono" to a board for each condition below? Assumptions - 1. XLR Left Mono Out Conditions - 1. Board is sending Phantom Power to device (Phantom power can not be turned off) 2. Board is not sending Phantom Power Questions - 1. When should i use Mic level output versus Line level output?

    Helix XLR outputs and 48v Phantom Power

    When the Helix XLR outputs are subjected to phantom power, the output level is decreased. Do not try and connect your Helix to a mixer, interface, or PA system that supplies phantom power (48v) to the Helix XLR outputs. The workaround is to use the 1/4" outputs instead. If your setup requires XLR usage and phantom power cannot be avoided, we’ve seen some customers have success with a phantom power suppressor.
  25. helllo my fellow man, definitely have been dying to create my first pod post and im already a year old user, procrastination is a harlot but uh this here sitiuation had to be brought up to the boys for this here noobeh. thanks aton. so here is my desired signal chain: ---PODHDPRO--crownXLS1500 rack'd amp--PeaveySP-2 600wPA speakers--- First question: shall i run the outputs of the pod hd into the crownXLS using balanced(XLR) or unbalanced(1/4) i plan to use the pa speaker for all around use, from band practice, to live, and to just me riffing off on myself. i want clarity like most and im playing an electric guitar with a back track from desktop btw... Second question: i also have a yamaha emx 640 6channel mixer i could put in the signal chain right after the power amp and then into pa speakers but honestly i have no clue if thats is useless or necessary..? (i have been using studio monitors when writing but im just tired of it sounding like runny shards when i plug into my spider iv combo amp or our other pa system for practice) Third question: would you guys recomend using an old arse pa like the peavey sp-2ti 600w for this setup or should i go with another rig setup approach. i always thought just my pod hd pro to pa system would do but apparently not but im not to sure on this point, so far im just following directions of a god-like guitarist friend of miine (refering to new power amp addition). id like to say the help would be for the greater good lol but i appreciate all who read this.
