The headache question that's been on my mind since early August. (Had to return a faulty unit)

 

I bought a new setup for streaming, an AT-2035 Mic which I've seen a lot of forum posts surrounding (gulp), a cool boom arm for said mic and the UX2.

Although I have seen many forum posts, none seem to answer my question and cut off prematurely due to Mic 1 not being selected.

 

My setup:

an AT-2035 is plugged via XLR lead into mic port 1, knobs are at reasonable levels.

An aux cable with an adapter is plugged into the hub of my 5.1 surround system to provide audio out.

Phantom power is activated and the USB is connected to the back of my PC (motherboard USB 3.0).

Dials are lit up orange but I haven't set them up for any readings yet.

The software is set to Mic 1 in the mixer using Noise Gate, Compressor and American Classic. (pretty sure all input volumes are up).

 

My question finally is, why is there no audio coming through?

I'm not very technical so do go in depth but talk to me like I am a child or I may not understand.

Do you have Gearbox or POD Farm engaged? And the correct input on Gearbox or POD Farm enabled?

All I can think of is have you set the ux2 as your speaker out put in your computer's settings? Start > control panel > hardware and sound > sound > playback. And set ux2 as your device (I assume your sound system is plugged into your ux2) I made this mistake when setting up initially.

Perhaps search around in your settings. Open control panel, in the view by tab, select small or large icons and then select line6 device manager (I think that's what it's called).

Try selecting your different inputs here too

I do infact have the most current ver. of POD Farm 2 installed and verified. as well as the drivers.

 

Although it didn't resolve my issue, I had infact also overlooked my default audio devices. With my setup, I would have had to use the 'Recording Devices' option.

I did try 'Playback Devices' and both options simultaneously active for good measure.

 

Thanks for the helpful replies, but sadly you gotta keep em' comin'

 

*edit* I also meant to mention that the correct input has been chosen. (whether or not this means it is enabled may be the difference)

I'm at a loss as to what it could be. Perhaps someone with ore experience has an idea. Have you downloaded line6 monkey and it confirms everything is in order?

What is this connected to on the UX2?

the adapter end of the cable. This video below says that it is OK to do.

also, I'm in the UK so I probably won't reply for a short while.

 

*edit* I have also tried my guitar on the UX2, with a cable straight to it (not sure if I need another power source as the guitar runs on passive pickups.)

You did not mention if it worked.  If it did not, did you change the input in PF to Instrument? 

 

Have you tried headphones directly into the UX2?

Ah yes, the answer to that one is no, it did not work.

I will try my headphones in the morning when I can work out a way to get my Astros to work on it.

I'm off to bed now.

sadly still nothing with my earphones (which definitely work).

 

*edit* I also swore into the mic loudly several times in anger with no results.

Return it to the retailer. It's starting to look like a hardware issue.

Should still be under warranty.

If they both don't work,... that's odd. Return them both.

 

Option two, this is a device that is not serviced by our service centers,

the expense of repair out weighs replacement. Contact Mark Wright at

Mark Wright Music in Northampton. He used to be a tech at Line 6 Rugby,

when we had a location there. If there's something quirky about your set-up

configuration, he might be able to run it down and solve it. Damn good tech.

Sorry I have taken so long guys.

 

First off, thanks Parkissan.

Secondly, the UX2 does show up in monkey.

Finally, I'm presuming an ESN may be and Electronic Serial Number but I may be mistaken. (If it is then yes, It does show up.)

That leaves two possibilities,...

 

1) something odd with the set-up configuration, something not engaged

like a device manager setting (PC), or aggregate device (Mac).

 

2) some failure in the audio circuitry hardware.
