USB-Volume much louder than Modeller-Volume

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I've been using the HX Stomp for a couple of weeks now. Really impressive device!

Yesterday, I used it to jam to some backing tracks generated by band in a box. For this purpose, I connected my guitar directly to the Input of the HX Stomp, connected the HX Stomp via USB to my PC and connected the ouput of the HX Stomp to an aux input of a powered speaker. Pretty straightfoward.

However, I found that the volume of the signal coming from the PC  was much much louder than the volume of the guitar modelling. Basically, I had to turn down the PC volume as much as possible (in Windows) and had to turn up the guitar modelling volume (in Helix) quite significantly, to be able to hear my guitar over the backing track.

Is this how it is supposed to be?

Yes, that’s to be expected. The backing tracks are probably normalized, and maybe mastered, so they’ll be a lot louder than the processed guitar signal coming from the Stomp.

Another option to get the balance right is to go to:

 

Global Settings > Ins/Outs and use Knob 6 to reduce the USB In 1/2 Trim

 

Try reducing it to about -20 to -30dB
