Frustrating issue with Logic Pro X

Recommended Posts

Hi, has anyone else had this issue when using a Pod Hd Pro X direct into Logic Pro X via USB on an iMac?

i can hear the Pod fine via input monitoring on the Mac, I can record with no issues, until every so often this digital 'beep' interrupts the signal.

I thought it might be an issue with the digital to audio conversion not being able to keep up, so I have tried every value of latency adjustment in Logic (I/O Buffer Size) all the way up to totally unusable levels, and the noise still occurs.

Process buffer range is set to 'medium'.

Core audio is 'enabled'.

 

There is no issue when recording other instruments into Logic via USB interface, just with the Pod. 

 

I have installed all the relevant drivers.

My Mac is up to date.

I have the output set to 'studio/direct' on the Pod.

I have tried other USB cables.

i have tried other guitar cables and guitars.

 

I'm unable to reliably use the Pod to record with until this is resolved, and I have researched the internet for a possible solution for quite a while, with no ideas. I never used to have this issue, so something has gone wrong along the way.

 

Please could someone advise what this could be? I'm going to have to part with this Pod if I can't get any reliable use from it.

 

many thanks

I have the same problem with the hd500x, it’s really annoying. I use a guitar jack to usb cable (rocksmith) instead of the pod usb out.

i just plug the rocksmith cable into the normal mono out of the pod and the usb end straight into the Mac, the sound quality may not be quite as good that way but you don’t get the annoying beep / glitch noise. 

 

I believe the pod hd pro x has a headphone socket, you could try using one of the cables I mentioned that way? I know it’s not ideal but at least you could then use it without the annoying noise.

Thanks for the reply! I had tried the line out to an audio interface, but couldn't get that to work, same with the headphone out. I'll try the rocksmith cable idea. Wish I knew what was causing the issue.

Got the same damn problem, digital 'beep' interrupts the signal.

Does anyone have news about this?

 

Thank you

Hello! I did fix this - try switching your sample rate from 44 kHz to 48 kHz  in Logic (file, project settings, audio).

 

This completely eliminated the problem for me, so assuming that you have exactly the same problem, it should remove it for you too.

its weird, cos my POD manual says match the POD with Logic, but when I do that, I get that awful beep. 
 

really hope that helps, as it was driving me mad. Let me know.

Thanks for suggesting this, as it got me on the right track. I'd been using my HD500 into garageband which only samples at 44.1kHz. It was just a matter of switching the Pod from 48 kHz down to 44.1. Obviously I'm a novice with this stuff. Seems to be holding. Thanks again!

How did you change this setting on the Pod? Having trouble finding it.

You would change it in your DAW's audio settings. Which DAW are you using? It has more to do with your devices audio drivers than the physical device.
