HX Stomp to PC via USB - how to use headphones/speakers plugged into PC?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I just got my HX stomp today, and I'd like to use it as a USB interface to my PC. 

It works fine when I plug my headphones into the HX stomp, but is there a way to have it so that the audio from the Stomp goes out the USB back to the PC and I can use my headphones or speakers that are plugged into the PC instead?

If you're using USB, the HX is your soundcard, so, no. You can route streaming apps (Youtube, Spotify, .wav files) to your computer's soundcard and use a small mixer to combine the sound with the HX, with your speakers and headphones attached to the mixer if the speaker's connectors are RCA, but there's no way I know of to get USB to the computer's soundcard, other than maybe some specialized internal routing software? Computer speakers don't really work all that well for guitar. A good bookshelf system can sound OK (I have a Sony system with 6" spkrs and a 10" sub that I use in the office with Native), but you probably want a small set of monitor speakers, something like the Yamaha HS5 or Rokit5 at least for decent sound.
