Goochster Posted July 30, 2014 Share Posted July 30, 2014 Hi all I'm hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on a couple of questions that I have. Firstly I've just upgraded my PC speakers to a set of Alesis M1 active 320 USB monitors. I've found that the only way I can output the guitar tones from POD Farm to the monitors is if I use the 2 x analogue outs from the UX1 and plug them into the 1/4 inch line inputs on the monitors. I thought there might be a way of discarding the use of cables here as the UX1 goes into my PC via USB and the monitors are outputting via USB? I imagine there is a way of tethering the 2 if I was using some sort of recording software like Reaper etc but most of the time I'm just playing my guitar to a backing track mp3. This leads me onto the second question. When playing my guitar to a backing track I find that the output volume of the Pod Farm tone is always quite low compared to the mp3 backing track that I'm playing. So I have to ramp the volume up on my monitors to allow for the low volume of the guitar tone from Pod Farm, but then turn down the volume of the mp3 to get them to a similar level. This was always a problem with the pc speakers that I used to use but now I have some decent monitors it's even more apparent. I've tried turning up the amps used on the individual tones to full volume, turning up the output volume within Pod Farm itself to maximum and turning up the output volume on the UX1. It still doesn't get particularly loud. Any help with the above 2 questions would be very much appreciated. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
