the "Mute Mains for Mic Record" problem.

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this is the software bug or intended functionality, but

when the "Mute Mains for Mic Record" (POD Farm->Preferences->Hardware) option is activated, listening monitors are muted - not just for the Mics (sensible feedback protection) but for instruments/line inputs also (for what?).

 

I think the instruments/line inputs should not be muted.

 

tested on:

OS: Windows 7 SP1 x64
audio: UX2 (driver: 4.2.7.7, USB firmware: 1.02, POD Farm: 2.59)
hardware: Xeon W3690, 48GB RAM

I didn't even know it had that function.  i guess it mutes everything so you get no interference in the mic.

The feature is redundant to me, i just turn the volume down and use headphones as a monitor.

Exactly. That's why I say that this function, acting in this way, is slightly senseless.

 

In my opinion, this function should silence listening monitors ONLY when at least one of the activated input sources is a mic.

It would have 2 real advantages:
- automatic feedback protection (not only when recording where the user behaves cautiously, but also when the source is switched to a mic accidentally resulting in a loud explosion)
- it would eliminate the need for continuous manual adjustment of the speakers volume when switching between the signal sources (mic <-> instrument / line).
