I have a hopefull very easy question, but I do not seem to be able to find out whether what I want to achieve is possible at all:
I just bought a UR22C because it had the loopback function that my UR22 (1. edition) did not have.
I have my guitar plugged into the front jack and play in Cubase with the Guitar Rig Insert effect. (Basically a virtual amp/effect simulation).
Now all I want to do is to make a movie with a live cam and the “wet” signal. I tried “just” recording from the Webcam’s mic but this was horrible.
So I thought let’s buy the UR22c because this loopback function is advertised to do just that.
Long story short: I am not able to achieve what I want to do.
It’s not about recording something, putting effects over it and then playing it or exporting it. It’s about “jamming” live, playing around, etc. and recording it. So it means I must be in monitor mode monitor mode when playing, otherwise I won’t hear anything (from my effect/amp). But as soon as I am in monitor mode the UR22C creates a horrible loopback. Which is understandable in so far, that it is feedback the output signal back into the chain and thus creating a stronger and stronger signal which leads to an overload in a split second…
I do not seem to understand how this loopback function is to be used. Even when turn of the monitor mode and just use the loopback to record something the signal is very very silent, like -60db. No matter how much I raise the Gain know on channel 1 where my guitar is plugged int, I cannot get it over -40db. This is not a problem in monitor mode where I have a strong and loud signal.
I googled and read a lot of things about the loopback and there seems to be quite a confusion about this function, also because it is not so very good documented in the manual. For bigger models I’ve read that only channel 1+2 are used for loopback so there it might be a solution to play the guitar on channel 3 and not feed anything into channel 1+2 to avoid feedback if I understood it correctly. But what about my UR22C?
I’m currently considering returning the UR22C, because it seems to so complicated to achieve my pretty simple goal.
Thanks for your help.
