Make sure everything is routed correctly in Windows. Double click the speaker icon on your taskbar, go into options, click preferences. You will have the option to view playback or recording settings and levels. Select recording and click OK. This will allow you to select which inputs are active for recording.

If it still doesn't work, make sure you have Acid configured to your sound card. I am not specifically familiar with Acid, but all audio programs need to be configured specifically to the system that they're running on.

How do i get rid of microphone delay?


You need to adjust the buffer in acids settings. If you set the buffer too low, everything will be in time, but you will get pops and clicks in the audio. Try and find the happy medium for your system. Also be sure there are no other programs such as a virus scanner enabled or running while recording.

Depending on your sound card, there could be another solution if adjusting the buffer does not work for you.

You will then need to find a different ASIO driver that is compatible with your sound card. If you have a soundblaster, there are 3rd party ASIO drivers that you can install, and that should fix the issue.

Good Luck!

Can't record vocals


You can use any mic you want but you have to go to the soundcard mixer and enable the source for recording from the recording properties. If you have a separate soundcard not the onboard one usually it will have it`s own mixer software so you open that up and set it to record from the microphone input if that`s where your mic is inserted. If you use the onboard sound card then go to control panel - sound and select the device you want and also set the recording source. In sonar you have to right click on the track in the left part of the screen. This brings up the properties for that track. The you select the sound card input and output for that audio track.
That shoudl solve your problem.
Of course you will get a much better result if you use a good mic plugged into a mixer or pre amp and send the source into the line in of your sound card and adjust the rest accordingly.

Can not record audio anymore


Does it create a track but there is nothing in it? Turn off your anti-virus software when you record, thats how I got mine to work. Kaspersky anti-virus was making it trip offline.

Problems Recording Vocals with Sony Music Studio


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.

Timing problem!! help needed badly!


Your solution is to delay or speed up the sound that your running thru to your computer. The reason why they put user recording latency under the options then preferences then audio settings is not because this never happens or isn't know about. If your sound is too late in the track you have to re-record the track with a higher number try about 125-160. A hint is to play some notes to the beat, check to see that you are in time, then record what you are planning to record.

Recording in Acid Pro 5


Are you plugging the instrument directly into the computer? If so you only have mono jacks from your bass, guitar so on and so forth! So in channel in only one to record! Try using a stereo microphone and record pointing at the amp. That way you will get stereo through your device. If that is not the problem make sure that the settings on the Prosonus is set to output stereo. And for most check all your plugs to make sure they are stereo inputs and outputs.
