Rowbi Posted April 3, 2020 Share Posted April 3, 2020 Hi dudes! Me and a few chums are going to have a virtual guitar dual using Zoom during the UK COVID19 lockdown. So as my kids will be asleep upstairs while this duel takes place I thought that instead of trying to mic up a real amp, using the helix via USB should mean I can have the guitar tone go straight into the zoom meeting with no risk of waking the kids :-) however for some reason Zoom doesn’t like the Helix as an input device and I can’t seem to get an input in Zoom registering. some other facts: it’s the latest version of the zoom app on Windows 10 , and win 10 is up to date. its the latest Helix FW and drivers. Zoom output will work via USB to the helix and I can hear the zoom test tones out of my headphones connected to Helix. zoom app works fine with my USB headset microphone and headphones. helix usb input works fine into Reaper. i realise that I’ll also need another device dialled into the same zoom meeting to capture my voice through another microphone - which I’ll likely do with my iphone. I support other video conference tools as part of my job in IT so I’m not a noob with conference tools (although I’m not that experienced with Zoom). anyone got any ideas why this doesn’t seem to work for me - when theoretically it should be awesome!!?? Is it perhaps that zoom doesn’t support ASIO devices as an input microphone but does support ASIO for output devices.? cheers Rowbi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
