Mic input doesn't work UX2 Pod Farm 2

Recommended Posts



I've gone through a zillion threads and can't find the solution.


Instrument works fine with my Pod Farm 2 / Ableton setup. But I am trying to use microphone and I can't get anything in.


I am trying with a condenser and a regular mic. When I try with condenser, phantom power is on. I've tried different cords and both mic inputs. My mic gain is turned up.


My pod farm is NOT authorized. I bought this in July and have no clue where the activation code is, and I really don't want to drop $100 just to register it. I am praying to frickin jeebus that my mic issue isn't just because it isn't registered.


All threads usually say "go to the mixer and select mic as your input." My mixer on pod farm VST has NO inputs




My DAW input is set to my UX2 (instruments work) -

I'm using WAV input and not DX. Not extremely clear on the difference but from what I am reading, WAV uses mme drivers and DX uses DirectX drivers.




Any help would be awesome because I'm at a loss.

Hi, I know this is a long time later but if you see this reply I was just going to write about settings etc. 1st thing is that I myself use ASIO drivers and work fine in Ableton Live. The other thing is that you need to open up Pod Farm Standalone version and go to the mixer there and select your mic input. Then go to the part where it says "send 1-2" and "send 3-4" and choose how you want your DAW to get your sound. "Dry input" will give you the mic's sound with no effects added in standalone. If you choose "tone a" then you will get the effects you are using in standalone sent to the daw on the input that matches the send. If you are wanting to hear the mic when you record then I would turn standalone on and leave it on and turn down the daw's volume to 0 for that track you are recording. This combats hearing a delay. Forgive me if you know some of these things, but I thought I'd write anyway. God Bless, David

This is strange... I had the same issue trying to record 2 mics using Pod Farm 2 installed on a new computer. There is no obvious way to select the inputs anymore. The settings screen is there as described, but there are no options to switch between line and mic. I've been using Pod Farm for years, thought I was going crazy.


So I tried Pod Farm 1 (version 1.12--I guess they both install at the same time) and in the old layout, you have a split screen for dual tones, and each window has a proper dropdown selector at the top where you can choose Mic 1, Mic 2, Line 1, Line 2, or Instrument. These are working properly.


I think this means that Pod Farm 2 probably has a faulty UI. Here's how you'd accomplish this with the old version.
