No rec mixer output thru Band In A Box.....can't monitor sound

When using audio input with mic or guitar in BIAB program, I can't monitor sound. The BIAB VU meter shows signal input, but no output. This gives me a Windows error message that says it's looking for mixer volume control, (and of course can't find one). I am able to record and play back, but cannot hear my playing while recording. When I access the M-Audio control panel there is no volume function (mixer) available for this input. The Windows volume kernel only has playback mixer vol for M-Audio piece incl wave, CD. There is no rec mixer volume avail (shown).

While visiting my local music store for help I noticed the store's computer showed an M-Audio control panel that did have a volume control. Since I am using the Audiophile USB, the Windows Control Panel has no Volume Control available, nor does the Audiophile for rec.

I have just downloaded the latest driver for both programs, just to be sure. The tech at M-Audio and the tech at PG Music (BIAB) both seem confused and can't answer this problem.

Background noise on vocal track


There is no doubt that sound on PCs and laptops can be a pain, and I have had to run a mixer output through the mic socket before now, such is the insensitivity of the PC's inputs. But you have done this, which implies that the mic input is not being connected to the sound system. You should have some controls of the way the sound is connected - try the Control Panel (assuming you have Windows) and opening up the sound applet. You won't get anything through Audacity etc., until the system is delivering. Sorry I can't be more specific.

When we are trying to get a reasonable level of sound for vocals before it gets loud enough to be able to hear clearly with the band playing it starts to clip at the speakers now we are only using this set...


Proper level setting of the mixer is important. HOWEVER if the clipping is occuring at the speakers the only possible problem MIGHT be that you have a supersonic feedback that is saturating the speakers above your hearing range, Be sure you don't boost the highs too much with the EQ as this can cause the feedback that you can't hear. Also make sure that you power the speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer, even if it means running an extension cord to bring power to the mixer. This is to avoid a low frequency hum and common mode distortion/damage. A low frequency hum could cause the clipping.
It would be a good idea to get a sound meter to check the sound level. You should be able to reach 85 Db from this system without clipping. If you need more than that, you MAY need more speakers if the band instruments are too loud. Also if the band has amps that get into the vocal microphones that adds to the clipping level... make sure the mics don't "hear" the band instruments. Make sure your speakers are toward the audience from the mics to avoid the supersonic feedback problem. If the vocalists can't hear themselves with that configuration you need to set up seperate stage monitors.

There are some pretty good videos on YouTube about proper mixer level setup.

Connecting an M Audio Fast Track USB to a Behringer XENYX 1002


I suppose that you connect the behringer mixer master out (just one of the two channels in case of two) to the guitar input of the Fast Track. Have you tried to hear your mic from the phones output at the front panel of the Fast Track? Try changing the guitar gain and the output level at the top of the Fast track.

I'm waiting for your results or clarification, please post.

Thanks and regards

Yamaha Mg12-4fx 12-Channel Mixer


ok look here on page 21 & 22 of 32 http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/pa/english/mixers/mg12_4fxe.pdf

section #5," ST output"
the "st out" will go to the amp you have for the mixed sounds

section #1, "line or mic input"
this is the input for the guitar or a mic , but only one(mic or line ) per input # at a time

How do you connect Audio Buddy to computer


You probably connect the Audio Buddy via a USB or firewire cable. I use both types of audio interfaces. Your mac will sense which bus has audio. Go to System Preferences panel and select sound. Select input. You should see your Audio Buddy listed if it is connected properly. You can set levels from this panel and test the device by looking at the two level meters. Speak into the mic; the level meters should move from left to right. Go to the output panel and chose your monitoring device. I prefer the built-in speakers, but you could also connect your monitor to the USB interface or even the Audio Buddy. If I need better quality monitoring I plug a mini cable into the earphone jack and use a desktop speaker. Don't try to use that headphone jack for anything but monitoring - the quality is not great. If the Audio Buddy software requires that you select an input source, always use USB, never line or built-in mic. Another way to capture audio from an Audio Buddy or similar device is to use Wiretap Studio Pro or Roxio CD Spin Doctor for audio capture. I use both.

Realtek HD Audio Troubleshhooting?


I had the same problem with both my Biostar 550 and Gigabyte P35 motherboards, both of which use Realtek ALC888 HD audio. Its got lots of fancy eq and effects but a crippled record mixer with greyed out sliders. I emailed realtek and they responded that its a Mixer Record type audio mixer only and follows microsofts HD audio specification...so blame microsoft or Realtek...or both. There is NO workaround for this.

The solution is to use a sound card with AC97 audio or if youre lucky enough to find a newer one with HD audio and a less crippled mixer. Problem being the industry seems to have embraced Realtek who seems fixated on offering partially disabled mixers. I purchased a Diamond Xtreme 7.1 sound card from officmax for 30 bux. They also have a 5.1 version for 20 bux. The main rec output is set to a fixed level but the individual rec. sliders ARE enabled. Recorded audio ends up being about 10db low but you can always boost it n post production using a recording program like audacity (which the sound card comes with - there are newer versions of audacity available so dont use the included version). - The only way to get FULL functionality
- ALL sliders is to find an older AC97 audio card. There are good ones and bad ones so it may take a few. Try the Diamond Xtreme card first and if you dont like it you can always take it back. This link is for the $30 verson. http://www.officemax.com/omax/catalog/sku.jsp?skuId=21080508&searchString=diamond%20xtreme&category_Id=null

Dont hesitate to send Realtek a "concerned" (not nasty) email about this. Hopefully If they get enough...they MAY take it seriously...but I wouldnt cross my fingers.

Good luck,
Dave

Input audio to PV-GS250 from an external mixer


Problem check list:

- Try another cable in the connection to rule out the cable
- Make sure the 1/8 plug goes in all the way
- Make sure you have it connected to proper outputs on the mixer (and that it's not a powered mixer!)
- Make sure you don't have the output volume up too loud on the mixer
