High Gain preset, but clean sound recording
by LordMortem on 2012-11-22 06:20:27.0740

Hi There,

Was wondering if someone could maybe help me? I've got the POD X3 Live, and I'm currently recording via USB. Basically, I've got a whole bunch of new DAW plugins that I'm messing around in Cubase. But because of the latency when recording line in into Cubase, it's rather annoying recording like that. So what I'd like is to record a clean signal into my Cubase track, but Monitor the guitars sound with one of my High-Gain presets. If that makes sense? Only hear the Preset, but that isn't what's recorded - the signal being recorded is a clean guitar. Is this acheivable?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is achievable. Connect the X3 Live to your computer via USB, launch Cubase, and configure Cubase to use the X3 and its ASIO driver as your audio input/output device. Turn OFF monitoring in Cubase. The X3 is your soundcard, and you must connect your speakers or headphones to the X3 outputs to hear the sound from Cubase.

Select your X3 patch and arm a track in Cubase for recording. In Cubase, select the Record Input option for the track - the signal you wish to record from the X3. There are several options. You want to choose the dry (unprocessed) signal for either Tone 1 or Tone 2 - they should be the last two options in the list. Now start playing and recording. You will hear the wet (processed) signal coming through the X3 speakers/headphones, but Cubase will be recording the dry signal which it is receiving from the X3  via usb.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
