So the problem is that when Im recording something..it sounds very different from what it sounded when I played.I dont know why this happens but the tone is much better when I first play the guitar than the recorded file... How can I fix that? :\ I use a Pod Ux1 as I mentioned already and to record I use Reaper. Thanks!! smile.gif

Hmmm it has to do with the way you record in Reaper. POD UX1 if I remember correctly has two outputs (send 1-2 and send 3-4). One of those two is dry guitar signal and other one is effected signal (from Pod Farm). See in the Reaper which output you are recording/capturing.

Hey Bogdan thanks for answering!! Its has two outputs just as you said but.... I dont use either of them sad.gif I instantly plug the guitar cable and the usb...thats the only two things I use on the Pod UX1...I dont even what purpose the outputs serve tongue.gif Well, obviously something's not right here.. right? tongue.gif

As far as Reaper's concerned,at the preferences section (Audio,Device Section) it says First Output 1,Last Outpus 2 so I dont really know what's going on.

Hmm unfortunately I'm flying blind here as I don't have my UX2 at hand. But, when I said outputs I meant those inside the "software" not physical ones on the unit. When you make a new track in Reaper, click on the button "in" next to the little sound speaker icon on the audio track controls (its bellow the volume slider on the track). There you'll find which inputs/outputs you are capturing. Try finding something like "Send 1-2" and "Send 3-4" from UX1. Try switching between to see which gives you which sound. UX1 has option to internally allow you to record dry or effected guitar signal or both. It takes some time to learn how to use all those features, don't worry.

Thanks for the reply Bogdan!! Sorry to keep asking for even more details but just to be on the safe side... tongue.gif I clicked on the in option and it gave me several options..on of them was Record:Output and the options that popped then are the following

Record:Output (multichannel,latency compensated)
......................(multichannel)
......................(stereo,latency compensated)
......................(stereo)
......................(mono,latency compensated)
......................(mono)
......................(MIDI)

Is this what you meant?

You need to select there :

Record : Input
and bellow you'll find
Mono input with two options > Send 1 and Send 2

Try selecting one and recording, then select Send 2 and see what happens.

If both give same results do this :

Go to Options (where File, Edit etc is) > preferences > Audio device > select ASIO for audio system and bellow Asio Driver : Pod studio ux1
Bellow you'll find option of Enable inputs for : First (send 1) and Last (select send 4)

If you go back to the mono inputs options you'll now find send 3 and 4 there. Try selecting 3 and then 4 to see if records effected signal.

Hope this helps...

Cheers,
Bogdan

Sorry to tell you this Bogdan but everything's just the same sad.gif All 4 of them produce the same result...its like making the tone of the guitar in the final recorded file a LOT heavier than it really is.Maybe the problem lies somewhere else?

Are you using your POD UX1 as your sound card? By posting that you didn't use outputs on UX1, I suspect you are using integrated sound card, or other sound card then UX1.

Anyway, what ever seems to be the problem, check out the picture and do step by step:



1. Plugin your PC speakers to your UX1 interface (use analog outs 2/R and 1/L)
2. if you don't have appropriate cables, buy cable adapters, they are available in any bigger cable/electronic store
3. In Windows (not sure what Windows you are using) set the UX1 as your default sound card
4. In Reaper choose POD UX1 as your ASIO sound card (Go to Options>Preferences>Audio Device>Choose ASIO>Choose POD UX1)

UX1 device sends two pairs of audio streams to Reaper, one pair is processed and one unprocessed. Once you have POD Farm running, you can see what sends you are sending into Reaper. Try testing these sounds in reaper, make some test recordings and post what you find out.

Let me know if something is unclear here, or if you need additional help, we'll be glad to help.

Hey Ivan thanks for your reply!!! Well there is only one cable running from my speakers which I plug into the Speaker socket that is next to the guitar and microphone ones and not in the two outs you mentioned sad.gif Would that be a problem? The speakers do nothing but transfer to my ears what I play with the guitar and takes no part in the recording process right??

Well yeah I have my soundcard selected as Pod UX1 both in Windows and Reaper.. anyway I'll post a recording of a lesson here in GMC to see for yourself how the tone sounds like smile.gif

Aha, you are using phones output for speakers. That is fine mate, that shouldn't be a problem, the sound should be less-more the same.

Let's hear that recording so we can perhaps establish the issue! smile.gif

Hmmm post a take here, it can be audio too. I'm not sure what you are referring to as we covered everything in this thread. I'm running out of ideas smile.gif

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...ies-in-d-major/


Well here you can see how the sound is like...just as I have mentioned above the guitar doesnt sound like that!!! All the recording is nothing like the tone of the guitar when Im playing...especially the palm muting part which sounds more terrible than the rest biggrin.gif Though the whole thing is really crappy...what could be the cause? sad.gif

Are you using POD farm or Gear Box software as well as Reaper? That is what I do and can tell you how to set those up if you are using them. I struggle getting a good recording with my Line 6 device to, but have gotten better over time at tweaking it.

The sound on your recording was not that bad either but probably does not sound like what you are playing live.

No I don't have Gearbox I have Pod Studio UX1 and Reaper as my recording software smile.gif Well yeah you could tell me a good set-up on Pod Farm if you're familiar with it but what good would it do if it sounds the same once recorded? sad.gif I want first to fix this problem and then I could use some tips about nice tones.
