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
Re: Problems recording with Sony Acid mucic studio 7!
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

You can copy. You cannot just dump the file data. Unless you have an audio interface with multiple inputs, you can only copy 2 tracks at a time. Also, to sync the timing you'll need a midi port on the computer. Then you make the computer the "master" and the Fostex a "slave" device.
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...
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.
If it's the problem that I've encountered, you probably have Kaspersky. Many people have had the same issue. I almost took the ACID program back to the store. Kaspersky is possibly scanning the file while recording and erasing the sound for some reason. Pause the protection and it should work fine. It worked for me and others. If you don't have Kaspersky, then disable your antivirus, but stay off the net while it's disabled. Hope that helps.
ok i have windows vista so u have to right click on sound icon speaker then click playback n select conexant high definition smartaudio 221 n right click it as default n u gotta re load up acid then right click n insert audio
Sony says the operating systems listed on the box -- the ones out at the time you bought the software -- are the only ones supported: http://www.custcenter.com/cgi-bin/sonypictures.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2651&p_created=1165596321&p_sid=gFBkVDkj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MjQsMjQmcF9wcm9kcz0wJnBfY2F0cz0wJnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9dmlzdGE*&p_li=&p_topview=1
-That- said, some people apparently have gotten Acid 6 working.
You have Acid 5. It won't hurt to check and update some other things, whether you're able to run Acid or not. (And if your computer is strong enough, you may be able to run XP in a virtual machine, but that's a whole 'nother story.)
First, click your volume control -- likely in the bottom-right corner, or through Start: Control panels, and ensure your "line in" level is set high and the mute is not off. Yeah, you probably did this. Please quadruple check.
Try Start: Control Panels: System: Device Manager. See if you have any little warning signs or Xs next to any of your devices.
You can also look in the audio device section and see what your sound card is. (A Dell made one day may have completely different guts than a Dell of the same model made a few weeks earlier.) You can take that information and download a new driver from the company, which will have more updated drivers than Dell.
Last, make sure you've installed the latest updates to Acid 5. It won't hurt, and might make a difference. Doubt it, but it might. And if you go the virtual machine route, you may benefit there from the marginal improvements: http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/download/updates/acidfamily
