Hello. I watched the line 6 video on how to record through a firehawk, but I need more help. Can you please tell he how to setup the recording on a windows 10 pc and which free recording software to download and use (UK). The guitar I'm using is a variax standard.

Connect Firehawk to USB, make sure you have all drivers installed. I recommend downloading "Reaper" a free to try software that only costs 60$ if you decide you want to pay for it. There is no time limit on the free version and paying for it doesn't unlock anything, so it's an honor system (I paid for it after about a year of fiddling). Once you install Reaper, open it up, and make sure your FIrehawk is set as the audio interface. There are YouTube videos that explain how to do that.

Recording quality on USB. It is written that it is 24 bit, but what more? Is it 192 khHz or less?

Is the usb a good interface or should i get another one like apogee to get the best recording sound

How do you record the Firehawk FX through Soundcamp?

For reaper, assuming windows: (and depends on how you want to monitor, Firehawk drivers are absolute pieces of total crap compared to POD drivers, which aren't great, but are much more functional)

  • Install Firehawk Software
  • Plug your Firehawk outs to your studio monitors
  • Open REAPER, click the sample right indicator at the top right corner (might show "audio device closed" or similar instead of a sample rate, depending)
  • Chose Audio System ASIO
  • Chose ASIO Driver Firehawk ASIO Drivers
  • Close preferences
  • Right click in the left track control panel area (TCP) and chose Insert new Track (or click menu insert new track)
  • Click the round red button (assuming stock theme) in the new track to arm the track.
  • Don't bother turning on the monitoring icon, Firehawk drivers are total crap and won't allow you to disable direct monitoring in the hardware. Get used to the idea that you have no confidence monitoring or the ability to record the unprocessed input while monitoring the DAW's processing
  • Hit record on the transport, upload your hit song to Distrokid and be the envy of your peers
