Pod Hd300 Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I'd like to buy the POD HD300, but a friend of mine lend me this POD and I have problems related to a weird noise (like a shrill scratch) I hear from time to time when I try to record a track with my electric guitar using the "Studio One 2 x64" computer program. Some time ago, I also tried an old model of POD, and the noise was also there.

I have tried to modify the latency, I have used another computer program too, I also try to disable the computer speakers from windows, so I only have the soundcard of the POD on,... but the noise still comes up, so I don't know what to do, cause I'm really interested in this product.

Could you help me?

Thanks in advance

If you are using a laptop computer, and the noise sounds like an electrical hum, you are probably experiencing a ground loop. To test for this, run the laptop on batteries and disconnect its power supply from the wall. If a ground loop is the problem the noise will disappear.

Hi Arislaf, I'm using a Yamaha Pacifica 611 with Seymour Duncan pickups, and yes, I have changed the cable

Hi layne, i see that your guitar is ot the deal (i have with my guitar the same problem but it is the non hum canceling pickups).

Just in case, have you tried another guitar? and to play it in your friends house? if yes any difference?

Are you hearing the noises in the POD headphone out when it's set to be both the input and output device for your recording app?

Sounds to me like you're describing digigtal clipping, which whould mean that the best place to start is to lower the channel volume or the master volume on the Pod and see if that dosent make it stop.

Windows?  (If you are using a MacBook, I'll suggest GarageBand.)

 

On Windows, are you connected to a USB port that is attached to the first level USB hub?  This shows the connection on my system, where you can see there is a 2nd hub at the same level as my HD400.  If you are one more hub removed, that can introduce problems.

Also, use Device Manager confirm the driver is the latest.
