Problems recording with Sony Acid mucic studio 7!

I bought a Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1 sound card the other day so I would be able to use the mic port to plug my mic in to record acoustic guitar in Sony Acid Music Studio 7. When I turn the mic on and talk in it I can hear it through my speakers fine but when I put it up to my guitar and hit record in Sony Acid and then play it back when I'm finished record I can barely hear the guitar track if I can hear it at all. There is also a lot of air sound in the recording. Can you please tell me how I can configure my philips microphone or Acid so the volume is louder so I can hear the tracks I'm recording?

I know its a cheap mic but I can really afford any thing more right now and I'd like to record some tracks can you please fill me in on how to fix the problem.. Thanks

R u using a preamp to up the guitar levels to the desired level? Use a preamp ,also see to it that u r recording at mic level with the acoustic guitar directly plugged in. If thats a electric guitar set it at Line Level and use a preamp or a processor between the guitar and the soundcard.hope this helps! thanks

This probably has to do with the levels you have set for the sound card - take a look at your mix levels AND the volume input level 0 this is not the same control as output

I can't hear myself when recording on sony acid 7 pro

this is a sound card configuration issue. many new pcs and laptop have the sound card configuration in the registry. many previously available functions are either turned off/disabled or just not configured.

its a slightly different solutuion between vista and XP, the screen look different.

1st open the control panel and select the sound & devices ICON.

this opens a view of tabs for the sound card.

under playback...on XP you need to select the mic or line is as an available monitor.

under playback in vista, the default playback device will be displayed. a right click on the tab area provides an option to view disabled devices.

again under vista if you double click on the playback device itself, a new set of tab views appears.

this new set may support a check box for "RecordMonitor" or it may have a tab for Input Monitor.

in either case set the input monitor on so you can hear your input while recording in Acid.

If these options are not available on your screen, then the solution will be more complicated.

You wioll need some registry expertise. rather than that thoiu, try to get the latest sound card driver, which may have the devices configured.

if not then i would need more detailed information on your hardware, sound card, driver version and operating system to help you any further.

under xp and vista you can find the registry entries you are looking for by searching for one that is more frequently there.

You could look for EnableRecMonitor or MasterVolume etc.

the other registry entries found there are fairly easy to follow to set them the way you want them to be. In some cases you may have to add the necessary registry entries, but as I said that's not that intuitive...

Microphone sound quality

sounds like you are using the wrong fx... acid studio comes with some professional plug ins. use those instead. they have one that allows you to take background air, and noise out of your recording it's call background gate. none if this may make any sense to you so i have pictures.


after you click your green FX icon next to your track don't use the features below. go to where the read arrow is pointing. click that green fx icon instead.


click the all folder on the left side. on the right side will appear a list of plug in's/special effects (red arrow is pointing to the list). their is one called a noise gate use that to remove background sounds and air.

they have other features like chorus and reverb... these plug in's do great. i hope this helps.

you can add whatever effects you like on one track and save the effects as a name. that way you can add it to every track and don't have to go through the whole process of selecting the same fx for each track. i really hope this helps i'm not very good with explaining things. ha ha ha.

You need to use 2 different players at the same time to do that. There will probably be a conflict though until you assign a different DMA and IRQ for the devices.

When i record my vocals its only in one channel why!


It seems that the recording input source is provided as "Line In" whereas you need to select the "Mic In".
This is because the "Line In" is a stereo input and expects input for both right and left channels whereas the "Mic In" input is a mono input which is the same as our default condensed mic device is.

By the way, you would be able to see the graphic VU meters while recording, weren't they displayed that the recording is done only for one channel ?
Always use VU meters for checking the levels for recording, they are available with almost all recording softwares.

Hope this helps.

Direct sound is not supported....

Follow these steps (Windows Vista):

Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Sound - Manage Audio Devices - Record - Right click to show all the devices (including the deactivated ones) - Activate all the devices you can.

In Adobe Audition:
Edit - Audio Hardware Setup - Edit View - Control Panel button - Direct Sound Input Ports - Enable one device (default input will now show the device). Now you will be able to record sound.
