you might try finding a clean transparent amp in gearbox or POD Farm if all you want is a clean straight guitar signal.
you're probably better off aiming for -6 or so as your peak instead of trying to hit 0.
unlike analog, you want some headroom to avoid clipping.
are you going straight out of your guitar into the UX2 and recording the signal unprocessed by any Line 6 modeling software?Tony Jack wrote:yeah I wasn't using the POD Farm plugin just using the UX2 as an interface....So without PF2 I get a low signal and there's nothing I can do?....again disappointing
I'm a little confused, it sounds like you're using your UX2 simply as a USB direct box for you computer.
The UX2 is overkill for that, most it's benefits come from using Gearbox, POD Farm or the POD Farm plugin.
if it is what you're doing, all I can suggest right now is you might get a couple of 1/4" to XLR direct boxes to allow you to connect to the UX2's mic inputs.
or you might pick up a Presonus TubePRE
These can be found in good used condition for around $50 on ebay or Craigslist
or an ART TUBE MP

both of these can be used as D.I. box to use the XLR inputs as well to bring the signal level up if needed.
guitars/basses with active electronics, etc.Tony Jack wrote:So is the PAD input no good for a electric guitar?.....Is it just for bass or something?
instruments with a more powerful output than 'normal'
I just got done shielding my guitars and now the gates on the presets I use work pretty well.Tony Jack wrote:I noticed that quite a few of the PF2 presets caused quite a loud feedback/humming sorta noise without even having the electric plugged in just a preset loaded on the track.....I know there is a gate but I never really get much success with gates they seem to block too little or block too much
