UX2 - Need Help - Sound Issues

Recommended Posts



I know this was asked a lot of times, but I read everything/everywhere and I still don't have a clue.


The sound I get from my Logic Pro + UX2 is just horrible: cold, crunchy, messy, low. I can't get a real metal distortion.


I found a video tutorial and i set up exactly the same things. Step 1: choose the AMP.

His tests: My macbook exploded in a burts of distortion.

My test: crccrrcrrr...crappy sound :)


In many videos I noticed that they set the virtual cabinet  output very low...I have to put it at MAX LEVEL else i can't get any distortion if not a crunchy and cold sound (I can't do any artificial armonic because the sound is completely cut!).


Also with podfarm the "master of puppets" preset is kinda horrible.


My gear:

Macbook pro 16gb ram, 512 SSD, 4 core 2,7MHZ


Guitars: Schecter Hellriser (active EMG), Shecter Blackjack SLS (passive Seymour Duncan + Susteniac).


I connect Guitar in Instrument or Pod line in.

I connect via USB the UX to Macbook.

I tried as output both macbook speakers and Sony Headphones connected to UX2.


I think I'm missing something very simple, Can someone help me? Thank you!
