Shaamaan Posted August 29, 2015 Share Posted August 29, 2015 I've decided to try some home recording with my HD500 and found it a bit confusing - and as such, I'm wondering if I'm actually doing it right. First things first - I'm using Windows 7, and the POD is connected via the USB cable to my PC with the latest drivers installed. Once the POD is powered on, a new playback and recording device appears in the Windows Sound configuration window. Here's the part that baffles me. If I go to my recording application and select the ASIO and POD500 as the input... then NOTHING will be recorded UNTIL I select the POD HD500 recording device as the default recording device in Windows Sound configuration. This... doesn't make a lot of sense. I'd expect the Windows Sound configuration to be the settings for, well, Windows sounds and how the OS records and plays back audio. I'd expect a recording application to "use" what the settings for that application imply - in this case, the POD. I'm using Cockos Reaper, BTW, if that makes any difference. Can anyone explain what's going on? PS. When accessing the L6 ASIO config, a field called "ASIO client" says "none"... I'm guessing this is wrong, when Reaper is active and SHOULD, in theory at least, be listening to the POD... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
