Still having this problem? Mine was doing the same thing, so I went on the Presonus website and updated to the latest drivers. Mine hasn't done it since. If you have done that as well and it is still doing it, then I fear my problem may come back too. Hope not.

Hi, I have an HHB Burn-It CDR 830. Whenever I'm recording, along about the 5th track in- the player starts to fuzz out. The time stutters/freezes momentarily, and then continues normally for a while...


If it's always around the same physical location on a given CD it would have to be a physical problem with the transport, not the lens.

Esoteric but comprehensive advice....

Cannot record both mic and electric guitar in daw


Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality.
In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.

Sonar LE: no playback b/c "NO MIDI OUTPUT" selected


You have to go in to the Sonar configuration and select what the default MIDI and WAV input and output devices are. That is usually handled by the ASIO driver. In your case you would select the USB mic for input, and for output you need to select your sound card. For midi you need to configure the midi controllers and the software synth or soft instrument you are using.
If you need any more detailed help I need to know what version of Sonar LE it is and what sound card. I am guessing it detected the mic and just needs the output device configured as I mentioned.

Stuttering sound when recording


It's crucial that you understand the concept of latency.

Latency it the time delay between the trigger and the operation.
In terms of computer sound recording and generation:
1) The time between the midi trigger and the sound generated by a software synth to come out of the speakers.
2) The time between the analog audio signal input to be converted to digital and stored on the hard drive.
3) The time between the digital audio track to be retrieved from the hard drive and converted to an analog signal that comes out the speakers or headphones.
4) All of the above at the same time.

The factors that contribute to this latency form a pipeline that include the A/D (analog to digital) device (UA-25), the software drivers for that device, the operating system, the recording application being used, the operating system again, your internal computer speed and your hard drive speed. Remember that the sound needs to go both in and out, often simultaneously (thats called full duplex).

A latency of up to 50ms is probably tolerable, but for optimum recording, it should be closer to 5ms. If you were to go over 50ms, you would need some sort of time compensation, whether automatic or manual, because nothing would synchronize properly, be it the metronome or previously recorded tracks.

"What's this mean, and how does it relate to my situation?" you ask.

Lemme tell you. The recording program and drivers will incorporate software buffers to adjust for slower components in your sound recording pipeline. Without buffers, or with too few buffers, the pipeline can drop information (sound) if it is not be able to process it quickly enough. This will often result in stuttering and skips. Sound familiar?

So why not just put LOADs and LOADs of buffers in the pipeline? You most certainly can, but for every buffer you add, you gain a bit of latency. And remember that too much latency is a bad thing.

"Ouch! I still don't get it. What am I supposed to do?" you ask.

I reply, "Good question, Grasshopper." You want to stop your stuttering. You need to increase the efficiency of your sound pipeline. For regular people this means the following, in order:
  1. Make sure you purchase an A/D-D/A device that has low-latency drivers utilizing one or more of the following standards: ASIO, WDM, MME or CoreAudio. Selecting the one that your RECORDING APPLICATION utilizes. ASIO is widely supported and good. WDM is the worst because it is really just regular Windows drivers, but they can sometimes be optimized for low latency.
  2. Make sure you install your drivers properly, selecting the one that your RECORDING PROGRAM uses.
  3. Make sure that your recording application has the hardware selected for your A/D-D/A device and the drivers that you previously installed.
  4. Make sure that your recording application is using ONLY the hardware specifically designed for low latency, which is your A/D device that you previously purchased and installed.
  5. Make sure you include as many buffers as you can while maintaining a low latency. Often, this is dependent on your recording application.
  6. Set the UA-25 to 44.1KHz or 48KHz, not 96KHz. 96Khz does not allow for full duplex.
Do these things and attempt to record something. If it stutters right away or you get "underruns" you need to increase your buffers. If everything is peachy for a while, but soon you start getting skips, try increasing the buffers, or get a faster hard drive or turn off some digital effects.

In summation: A Celeron 1.6GHz should have sufficient power to record, play and add a few VST plug-ins, maybe even a dozen or more. Chances are that your hard drive is fast enough to retrieve and record 16-32 tracks at a time. Turn off all the stupid, little programs that make icons near your clock, like the DELL support and Weatherbug and AIM and AOL and HP Monitor and anything that takes processing power and hogs memory.

Look in your MIDI instruments and make sure the icon for you to play back is lit.

Tascam Us144 and Sonar3 problem!!!!


Try this experiment:  Record a click track on track #1.  Record track #2 of the output of a monitor speaker playing track #1.
Now you have two click tracks which will probably not be cooincident (like they should be).
Measure the offset of the two tracks!  You now know your latency exactly, and can compensate by adjusting settings or moving the vocal track back manually that many milliseconds!

Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue


I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.

SONAR LE NO AUDIO


Microsoft re-engineered the audio bus for Windows. HD Audio is hardware specific, in the sense that specific drivers have to be written to make a piece of hardware compatible with it. Roland is not writing a driver for the UA 25 because they want you to buy an UA 25EX. Get my drift? The UA 25 uses Kernel Streaming, the old way, which exists in parallel, sort of, with the HD Audio bus. But the new ways are always prioritized over the old ways in software, so there is bus contention (glitching).

To fix this there are a few things you can try:

1) Roll back to SP2. SP3 implements the HD Audio bus, so don't use that implementation. If your laptop has an HD audio sound card then I doubt it would work, but your UA 25 would.

2) Try ASIO 4 ALL. This fixed everything but glitching in VST instruments.

3) Reduce the amount of stuff your computer is doing. Optimize your OS by turning off the cute shaded windows and desktops and various processes that you don't need to see or use. There are sites for this. This increases available RAM, CPU time, etc.

4) Video hardware acceleration, sometimes, would fix bugs in software left in by not so clever programmers.

4) You can always just give-up and go along with the bastards and buy new stuff and toss the old stuff.
