DIgitech RP360XP USB

Using the latest version of Audacity on a windows 10 machine.

Let me explain, I have a Blue Microphone Yeti USB mic that works flawless with Audacity. This is just to let you know that my install is good and functioning as expected.

However, I also have a Digitech RP360XP effects pedal that has a USB in/out port that I can hookup to my computer for effects management and to use as a input/output for recording purposes.

So the problem is this, while I am recording a track using this interface it works well with the exception that the recording automatically stops at about two minutes in the track.
I have googled and tried most of the quick find things like making sure the track is at the home position before starting and that the passthrough is disabled etc…

Nothing I have tried so far has worked so I am reaching out to the community to see if anyone has any suggestions. I haven’t tried any other software.


the recording automatically stops at about two minutes in the track.

What does it do? Screen freezes? Audacity crashes from the desktop? Audacity keeps recording nothing?


Program doesnt freeze just stops recordlrding.

I down loaded the latest Alpha patch and I only used the exe. it seems to have fixed the issue. There still remains one annoyance.

When I am recording from the Digitech RP360XP interface I have to start a new track first and it doesn’t record it just sits there. I stop the recording and start a new track and then it starts recording. So I have to delete the dead track.
I guess it has something to do with the Digitech driver because it doesn’t do it with my USB Mic.

Is that a driver update from Digitech?

Audacity doesn’t require you to “arm” the recording first. It still sounds rather like the original issue.

Do you have the Digitech in an empty USB port in the computer? Does increasing “Audio to buffer” in Audacity’s Recording Preferences help?

Have you cold booted the computer recently? Windows button, hold SHIFT key and click “Shut down”.


The Alpha patch was for Audacity…

Cold booted several times…

I am going to increase the buffer now… I’ll post results in a bit…

To be clear, there is no “alpha patch” for Audacity. There are alpha builds of our development code: http://gaclrecords.org.uk/win-nightly/ but most of those are ZIP files (not EXE installers).

If you are downloading alpha builds of Audacity from anywhere else they are not official and could harm your computer.

Don’t go crazy with the project rate bottom left of Audacity. Stay with 44100 Hz, which is all that the pedal supports.
