Pod Hd500 Latency Problem

Recommended Posts

So I just bought the HD500 today and just starting to get the hang of it all. I have no fancy monitor(pa) to put it through to get that beautiful sound. Right now, I just have the USB output plugged to my computer and playing from the Pod Edit and I've been noticing quite a lot of latency. My fast riffs are quite delayed and it is quite annoying. Is the USB one of the worst ways I can output to get the `full` sound of the POD, and how can I fix the latency problem?

 

 

Thanks a lot in advance! :)

If you are using h'phones or computer speakers you'll need to get into your soundcard and adjust the latency. And doing it within EDIT will have latency.

It is better using a recording software like http://www.cockos.com/reaper/download.php it has a free 30day trial and only costs $50 for non commercial licence and it is up there with the best of them. In preferences select the usb and asio driver and lower the buffer to 256 if not already by default. Select your computers soundcard as the output device.

HD Edit does not process any sound.

 

Trying to run the HD's sound through the computer's onboard soundcard is not the correct/optimal use of the HD.

 

When using sending the sound via USB, the HD becomes your soundcard.

Sorry to clarify things: My Pod is in the computer through USB. My computer see`s it as a digital audio surface. I have small Logitech dual speakers and I accepted to put the Pod Hd through those speakers.

That`s all I`ve done. Just POD→usb→computer→speakers. I know that the Edit has nothing to do with it since I can still hear my guitar play when its closed. BTW im running Windows 7.  Â­Â­Â­Â­

Disconnect your Logitech speakers from your computer and connect them to the Pod HD audio outputs (e.g. headphones).

 

You should set up two distinct signal paths:

POD -> usb -> computer; and

POD audio output -> Logitech speakers

I'm using this configuration, but it results with lag and sound cracking even when I play music in Foobar (guitar is disconnected). I have a very fast computer, but it doesn't help.

i know this topic is too old but probably replying to this thread ain't that late. So i definitely understand why he wanted his guitar sound to go out with his computer speaker (assuming that he have guitar amp and used the output(s) for the guitar amp as another monitor) using USB. Probably he dont want his computer speakers to be plugged out from his computer so that he can still use it while watching videos, etc. So here's how to lessen the latancy problem. It still have latency but at least its just a millisecond.

 

 

So first follow the red lines from the photo for windows. Open your sound settings, go to record then go to the properties of Line 6 Audio Interface then check "listen". Now you'll be able to hear your guitar coming from the computer speakers but with latency.

 

Now 2nd follow the blue line fron the image. open control panel, then open Line 6 MIDI then you see there that you have the option to adjust the latency/buff.
