Maya1010 Clipping issue

Hi, I'm having a bit of a problem with my current setup - I'm using Cubase SE on a Pentium Celeron 2.8GHz machine (WinXP) with a brand spanking new Maya1010 soundcard. The problem that I have is that sometimes during recording, somehow the sound clips for just a split second, kind of like there was a quick electrical surge somewhere. (It's kind of difficult to explain). I'm not sure whether it could be the soundcard that's faulty, of if maybe it could be sensitive enough to pick up small electrical surges in the pc power supply/wall sockets. I hope then buying a voltage regulator might solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Riaan

Re: Maya1010 Clipping issue

Hi Riaan. I am also having the same problem after installing my Maya 1010 in my new i5 pc. It works well in my old P4 but now it has plays back with glitches and clipping like u mentioned. But it has nothing to do with power surges. I have looking for answers on the net with many experiencing the same problem but nobody has been able to succesfully come up with a solution. Its quite frustrating.

Re: Maya1010 Clipping issue

I don't know which drivers your using but try using WDM drivers or if your already using the WDM drivers try using ASIO drivers. Try to make sure you don't have any software running that is not ABSOLUTELY necessary while recording. I have a feeling that the problem is really your processor. Celerons SUCK! Having said that I've seen the same problem on PC's build for heavy duty recording sparing little expense. The solution was switching to ASIO drivers. Hope this helps, El Duderino

Using a Tascam US 122 with Cubase SX, when recording vocals red light (clipping) on the Tascam and in the Cubase mixer, I need to know how to set levels on Tascam, so there will be no clipping on vocal...

Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25

Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

When i import an instrumental into cubase it will playback but will be very distorted, if i change the device settings in cubase and dont use the io2 it will playback fine so im assuming its something to...

In order for an imported file to sound correctly in Cubase, the bit rate and KHz must be the same or you will create garbage when going through your interface. For instance if you have ripped something from a CD it will be in 16 bit 44.1 KHz format. If you were to pull this into Cubase at 24 bit with 48 KHz selected as your projects rate you would encounter this problem. (I'm guessing this is what is causing your problem.)
Please open up cubase and click import, a window should pop up asking if you want to convert formats, please select the check boxes for conversion for the bit rate and KHz (depending on what version of Cubase it will be something similar to this.) An alternate solution is to go to the project preferences and select the rates that match the imported material before importing and no conversion will be necessary. (Although, I recommend always working in 24 bit and 48 KHz if you're machine can handle it.) A final possibility is that you have the latency set really low and the converters can't handle the speed at which the information is being processed. If the above should for some reason not work, check in your preferences box in Cubase if possible or through software that came with your interface and increase the latency. This can cause an audible delay between the time you hit a note and hear it back so make sure to decrease it before recording and increase it while mixing since you won't being recording new material and can use that processing power that would have gone to making sure you hear your live audio quickly can be steered to use plug-ins and get crackling free playback. Remember, with latency, even if get crackling from a low latency you will not hear that crackling upon mixdown! However, I'm quite sure your problem is with conversion rates, but if never hurts to know or get a reminder on things like latency. Cubase is a high quality product and I hope you enjoy using it. Thank you and I hope this helps.

Tascam us144 clipping

1. make sure your incoming signal is not too strong, this is i think the most common reason for clipping.
2. check the settings under audio performance in tascam control panel.. for vista click start> all programs > tascam> control panel> try changing the latency to normal or whatever works best with your system.
I never seem to have this problem anymore since I upgraded my desktop, with my slower system I had this problem all the time, so badly it was impossible to record an entire track.

Edirol not able to record on Cubase essentials

This interface works fine with other hosts but with cubase is more tricky. But you can fix it.

You need to disable the onboard sound card, also use the UA25 Asio drivers, go to programs/Steinberg cubase/ ASIO multimedia setup and you should see the UA25 outports are active and that the sync ref "YES" also that the UA25 Input ports are active. the next bit is a bit of fun select the Advanced options and select Detect buffer size, when thats finished select Check Buffers and Sync, press the start button and the test will run,if everything is ok you should have zero "Sync lost" and zero "Buffer lost"
Depending on how lower you want to get your latency , you may have to tweek the UA25 driver settings and re-run the setup above.

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le

Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.
