Dylanguitar Posted May 28, 2016 Share Posted May 28, 2016 Right now I'm running an older version of OSX that does not support USB recording. I'm wondering what the sonic differences are between USB recording and just taking the XLR out into the preamp/interface. I have noticed that just taking the XLR out of the Helix and into my preamp (Audient ID22) sounds quite a bit darker than the same patches going to my Matrix Q12a (powered speaker), and quite frankly the patches don't sound as good. I was wondering if recording via USB sounds any different and what those differences are. I know that you're dealing with the coloration of the Preamp and also the conversion, but those are pretty good on the Audient, so I can't see that as a "weak link" that's mucking up the sound. I thought of making companion patches for all my useable live patches, but EQ'ed to where they sound better going into my recording interface. Anyway, curious to hear others feedback, opions and workarounds. Dylan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
