Pod Hd Pro - Recording With The Dry Output.

Recommended Posts

I have a Pod hd pro and i'm trying to record the dry output but it's not working can someone please help?

 

I have my guitar plugged into the dry output and the pod is connected to my laptop by usb and in my daw there is no sound or signal.

you need to plug into the guitar input....

NEVER plug "in" to an output.

the dry out is to plug into another interface... always plug "an out to an in" and "an in to an out"

engaging the tuner should give you the dry input into your DAW.

the only other way is over SPDIF via another interface...

or perhaps just selecting one of the "new tones" that come from the factory.

yeah, as long as the pod isn't your interface.

what i do is set the SPDIF to dry and go out digitally into my other interface, 

then i also take the standard outs into the interface as well so that i can record both wet and dry...

but your interface may not have SPDIF, and you may not be trying to do the same thing....

 

anyway sounds like you're on the right track.

 

Oh haha thank you! So i just plug the dry output into the input of my interface and that should work?

Ah yes it's working now! thank you very much:) 

Also sorry to keep asking questions but if i wanted to record a tone i have made on my pod should i plug the left and right unbalanced output into my interface inputs and record like that or just connect my pod via usb and record it from the usb?

for simplicities sake i'd just plug the regular 1/4" outs into the other interface.

just much easier to deal with a single interface.

you could do it the other way but then you'd have to move your outputs too... not worth the hassle in my opinion.
