HX stomp monitoring

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I tried running my HX stomp from one of the outputs into my Apogee 96K interface going into my iMac>Garageband. I can get signal but no sound when using headphones out of my iMac. I'm trying it this way because i've lost all of my 1/4 inch headphone adapters so can't use the HX headphones out. Is there something obvious i'm missing or can I only monitor through the HX stomp?

 

Thanks, 

Mike

Monitor from the interface headphone out, or set the iMac as the default playback device. I don't use MAC, so unless a MAC person wants to jump in, you'll have to RTM.

Yeah, if you're using the Helix as an interface, it's basically replaced your computer's sound card, so you need to use its headphone jack. It took me a while to understand this one, but it's how basically all recording interfaces work. It'll probably sound better than your computer's digital-to-analog converters anyway.

He's using some kind of Apogee as his interface. I told him to use that as his MAC soundcard on the assumption that it has a 1/8"  headphone jack.
