Pod X3 Live Asio And Reason Essentials Drum Tracks

Recommended Posts

OK, I am sorry if I come of as a total noob. There are some things that I really do not have a clue about and I am trying my best to learn. Alright, so I am using REASON ESSENTIALS 2 as my DAW. I managed a create a really nice DRUM TRACK and have the audio file for it.

 

Now, here is the issue. I am recording BASS and GUITARS using my POD X3 Live. On Reason Essentials, I have selected POD X3 Live as ASIO and I am able to record things fine and I can hear the bass via the X3 Llive out ----> power amp ----> Speakers

 

 

PROBLEM: I can't record my bass and guitar tracks while listening/playing along to the DRUM tracks recorded on my computer using reason. Is there a goddamn way to use POD X3 live as ASIO and yet record while playing along with your drum tracks?

 

Any help for a noob like me will totally be appreciated!

Connect your speakers to the X3 audio outputs. The X3 becomes your soundcard. Turn off monitoring in your DAW.

Sorrym my issue is that I can't hear what's on my computer i.e. Drum Tracks, Vocal  Tracjs etc while using POD X3.

Yes. That's because the X3 becomes your soundcard, meaning the playback of sound from your computer is directed to the X3; if your speakers remain connected to your computer (its internal soundcard) you will no longer hear sound from your computer. By connecting your speakers to the X3 outputs you will be bale to hear the sound generated by your computer.

yes if setup properly the X3 will play it all, were you able to get this sorted out?

one overlooked setting is that you have to have the output mode on the x3 set to match studio direct.
