Desperately need help

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I've been trying to find a solution for a few days, but no luck and im not sure, where the problem is. So, i use UX 1, reaper and for example bias fx. And once for some reason this thing worked very well, for like half an hour, i quickly made some recording and rendered it. And that was it, my sound is muddy again. I will attach an audio, where i use same bias preset, settings seem to be the same as well and di tracks are practically the same. But, one sounds muddy, another sounds great, almost like original recording. In this recording you can hear both versions switching. 

 

The problem is, i cant get that good sound back, the way it was supposed to sound. I also tried different software and even different PC-s. The only thing i havent tried yet, is another AI. Maybe i got mine defected or something, or my settings are bad, i dont know. 

And do guitar plugins sound depend on the AI, if the DI track was already recorded? 

 

Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

The plug ins don't rely on the audio interface as such, they just work with whateve sound the interface has recorded. Is the sound fine before you apply podfarm to it? Have you matched the bit depth and sample rate that your are recording at in your daw to the settings to your ux1 settings? Have you ran line6 monkey yet? Also, try the audio troubleshoot, it worked for me; http://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/recording/computer-audio-set-up-and-troubleshooting/usb-audio-troubleshooting-r443

Yes, the di track is fine, as i said the good sound that i got, was while using the exactly same di track. I ran line6 monkey and drivers are up to date.  Here are my settings, i also tried to play with them but nothing helps. Also checked the troubleshooting guide, but nothing :/

If the DI track is fine it likely is not your interface.

Is this Bias or POD Farm plug-in?

Bias. But other plugins also sound decent, but not as good as the others share them. Well if the plugin doesnt need interface to work, then probably interface if fine. However, maybe its the interface drivers or something? For example, the bias works as a plugin, but crashes as i standalone, if i try to select asio drivers that come with ux1.

The only thing I can think of is adjusting your power settings, according to the usb troubleshooting guide, this can cause performance issues . Other than that, I think you may have to open a dialogue with line6 directly, via a support ticket, found on your account page as your log in to your account at line6.com

i think it is also possible that problem isnt in the interface at all. I tried using regular windows drivers and built in soundcard to process the sound and it sounds exactly the same, so i dont know wtf im doing wrong.

Try disconnecting the UX and play back the track/plg-in in question using your pc's internal sound card. If you get the same unsatisfactory results then you eliminated the interface being the culprit. Also check levels you are feeding Bias

Yes, i did that and the results are the same. If we talk about an already recorded di guitar track. But when my interface is connected in the settings it shows as the main thing, also the input and output comes through it. I even tried to disable internal sound card in my control panel, but same results.

I mean the Bias plug-in, is there a level control to adjust the level of the DI track going into Bias?

Have you tried asking in the Bias forums?

Won't be able to listen to your clip until later this evening, but my guess is a setting changed somewhere.

The problem isnt with the bias i guess. I tried different plugins and stand alone modes, different Daws and so on. The sound im getting isnt horrible, its more or less decent. You can hear it in the recording, my regular sound vs that good one. But the sounds is not the way its supposed to be, and if i somehow got a good sound (it seems like a divine intervention already) then it must be possible, but i dont get it, what am i doing wrong.

So how are you toggling between good and muddy?

When i got this good sound, i rendered the audio and made a comparison with what i get now. I had the project saved of course with the good audio. But if i render it again, it sounds muddy. Problem is not with rendering, it sounds muddy in the daw playback as well.

Kommst du aus Deutschland bzw. sprichst du Deutsch! Ich kenne mich ein bisschen aus mit Reaper und Bias Amp Pro und kann dir vielleicht helfen, wenn du das Problem noch einmal genau in Landessprache beschreibst ;)

If you get a chance, post two separate clips, one "good" and one "bad" of the same time range.
