Connect the analogue inouts of the recorder to the monitor or tape outputs on the mixer.

SOURCE: Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time

The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?

SOURCE: vocal effects on Tascam 2488 MK 2 portable studio

Hi again,

The easiest way to record using an external Lexicon effects unit (without an external mixer) is to connect your mic onto one of the 2488's inputs and assign that input to a channel strip (track). You should have the 2488 sends (output) going to the Lexicon's inputs. Then connect the Lexicon outputs back into another set of inputs on your 2488 and assign those inputs to two empty channel strips (tracks).

Then you will have to take that channel that has your mic input assigned to it and press send and set the levels there to send the signal out the sends (to the Lexicon).
Now you have a channel strip assigned to the mic input which contains your dry signal, and you have the two inputs returning from the Lexicon which contains your wet or effected signal.
You then have some options. You can control the amount of effected signal you hear while recording by adjusting the faders of the two wet tracks and you can either record the dry signal or the wet signal (or both) onto separate tracks.

Typically when recording the singer will want to hear an effect (say reverb) on his voice, but the engineer wants to record only the dry track at recording time (because effects can always be added later, but they can't be taken out). To accomplish this you would use the setup above, but only arm the mic input track for recording. In this way the singer hears the reverb, but only the dry vocals get recorded and the engineer can add reverb to that track again later as desired (and mix it back with the dry vocal etc).

On the other hand if you want to record only the effected signal you would simply arm the two channels to which the inputs coming back from your Lexicon are assigned for recording. This will get you a recording of the effected signal only.
Hope this helps you do what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

bd.

SOURCE: Problem hearing a new recording after I press '2trk ito mix button?

Hi,

You need tro set up the monitoring capability in your recording software under either hardware profiles or audio settings. All "good" recording software has this monitoring capability. There's another thing - I got rid of my Multimix 8 USB, because it wasn't allowing me to monitor as I recorded new tracks. At first it did, then about a year into using it, this function stopped, and when I investigated further, it was coming up as a single duplex sound card in my hardware profiles in Windows XP. It is as if that functionality of the soundcard component had burned out. Maybe on the circuit board...

I now have a gina Echo that I bought off eBay, and it was the best thing I ever bought. It is a hard card - no latency! Full monitoring! 24 bit recording! A hard card with a breakout box instead of USB! My recordings have never sounded better. The best thing about it is that I sold my ALesis adn was able to by the gina and have money left over - they are out of production (stupidly) and can still be purchased for anywhere between $50.00 - $80.00

You may or may not have a problem with your mixer - check your software settings first. If that isn't the problem, eBay is open 24 hours...

DEAR SIR/MADAM WHEN I TRY TO RECORD MY VOICE VIA MICRO PHONE SINGING WHILE THE CD MUSIC TRACKS ARE PLAYING I COULD NOT RECORD THAT TO THE MINI DISC.PLEASE ADVISE ME HOW COULD I CONNECT IT DIGITALLY


It is much easier to use an analog mixer and microphone thru the mixer. I would plug the microphone into the mike input on the mixer and then the Karaoke machine to stereo LINE inputs on the the Mixer, then Mixer Output or Tape Output on the mixer to analog LINE IN on the MiniDisc recorder.
Let me know if you need more info.

the input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...

If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.

Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

I have an rode nt1-a microphone, roland quad capture interface, but when im gonna record or put the input level i hear wind, i turn down the input volume all the way down, i still see the input signal


The Rode NT1A mic is a condenser mic and therefore it REQUIRES that "phantom" power be supplied by the mixer or amplifier. You will get only electronic "noise" if the mic is not receiving this power. Look up Phantom power to understand it. Essentially DC power is sent up the mic cable between the signal lines and the shield of the cable and is used by the electronics in the mic to amplify the signal from the condenser element.

We would like to buy the Edirol V8 video switcher for live internet broadcast. I need to know if this is the correct product for us. We have 3 cameras and a projector going into the switcher and then it...


Dear crane_editor,
For broadcasting the video signal coming from the V-8 over the internet you need to have a computer that is equipped with a composite or S-Video input card. Additionally you might need an audio input as well with the possibility to delay the audio to have a live stream with lipsync audio and video.
Roland has launched a new product recently which is actually designed for live streaming applicatons like this. It's called VR-5 AV Mixer & Recorder. This device has a USB streaming output for easy connecting with a computer. The computer will recognize the VR-5 as a USB audio/video class device (like a webcam) so your setup is ready in minutes.
Further the VR-5 is equipped with an audio mixer (with delay for lip sync), built-in preview screens with touch select, PC VGA input, media player and AV recorder (SD card).
Probably the VR-5 covers all of your needs, without the hassle of difficult configuration of all kinds of separate devices.
Kind regards,
Kees

Where can i obtain a realistic 32-1200 manual for free? or what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean?


In reference to the question -
" what does cera and mag on the back of the mixer mean? "
these jacks are for the input of phonograph record cartridge signals.
Phonograph cartridges are of two types -
1. "Cera"mic (ceramic) cartridges generate their signal using a ceramic crystal which provides almost 1/2 a volt of current.
2. "Mag"netic (magnetic) cartridges generate a more accurate signal than a ceramic cartridge but the magnetic cartridge generates its signal using a moving-magnet mechanism (rather than a ceramic crystal) and the magnetic cartridge generates much less current than a ceramic cartridge, so its signal needs a lot more amplification than a ceramic crystal's output. So the two jacks on the back of the mixer provide different levels of amplification for the phono cartridges, less amplification for a ceramic cartridge and more amplification for a magnetic cartridge.
Since few people play phonograph records any more it is understandable that the public has little knowledge of the differences between ceramic and magnetic cartridges. But each have their own benefits and usually ceramic cartridges are cheaper than magnetic cartridges simply because it takes a lot more sophisticated manufacturing technology to make a magnetic cartridge, though magnetics are usually preferred over ceramics because of their more accurate generation of a signal from the wiggling groove in a phonograph record. But for those who can hear, the complete sound signal from a phonograph record is much preferred over the dead and dry sampled sound from a digital CD. And the old 1/4" reel-to-reel tape recordings are the highest sound quality of all because they are direct copies of the original magnetic tape masters with no digitizing at all. The fullness of their sound is astounding compared to any digitized signal..
A mag input is down at the mic level.
A ceramic input is almost up at the line level.

I'm attempting to install a Hitachi hard disk drive model DK237A-32 removed from a Roland VS 1680 digital 16 track recorder into my PC which runs Windows vista OS. I've done a ton of research but...


The last time i used a VS-1680 was probably over 7 years ago, but if memory serves me right the only way of taking the tracks of to a pc, was by using an spdif line out to the pc and recording them that way, which if i remember right was a dog slow process as you were limited in how many tracks you could record at a time. there is an old forum i used to frequent with a guy quoting this
http://homerecording.com/bbs/user-forums-brand/roland-boss-vs-series-forum/roland-vs1680-pc-file-transfers-96373/#post906840
so that may be another way of doing it

The problem is that card has only UNBALANCED inputs. You really need balanced or first run the mixer outputs through a DI backwards. Frankly, I would recommend NOT using a card within the PC as there is so much digital noise. Use either a USB or Firewire external convertor and for goodness sakes use balanced lines from teh Mackie... ALL interconnected equipment needs to be powered from the same receptacle or source. M Audio, Roland/Cakewalk and Presonus all make cards as do others.

How do I attach power amp to 1832 mixer


There are a number of configurations for a mixer like the 1832, the most common are PA system and Recording system. There are Main output jacks which carry the mix as summed in the main faders. These in a PA system would feed the pa amplifiers which drive the house speaker system for the audience. These connectors are XLR 3 pin type on the rear, intended for professional pa amplifiers which use balanced +4dbv line input level. Amplifier which have 3 pin XLR connectors for input signals can accept that high level signal. For home style HiFi amplifiers, the signal level is nominally -10DBv and balanced or unbalanced signal lines with 1/4in diameter phone plugs which are connected to the mixer by way of a second set of Main output connectors which are 1/4in phone jacks. Use whichever amplifier input level your amp has.
If you are not using it as a main PA house mixer, but using it for recording, the main output connectors go to a 2 channel recorder or computer sound card recorder. The power amp and your monitor speakers are connected to the connectors labeled "Control Room" (CTRL Rm). These output are useful for recording because the signal through the mixer can be monitored from several buses, Solo, main mix, selected by buttons provided. The buttons only affect the signal heard through the control room monitors, and not the main output which only sees the main mix so selecting "solo" does not interrupt the signal going to the recorder while the engineer in the control can be checking other signal paths through the board.

How to use yamaha mg102c with m audio usb


You must connect:
the mixer output to the "line|optical" input of the Transit
the mixer input to the line (in case of an analog signal) or to the optical (in case of a digital - optical signal)
The USB connector on the other side is going to be connected at the USB port of the pc.
Just keep in mind that the signal flow goes as the arrows on the Transit.

HK AVR35 Receiver - Dolby Digital not displaying or working


If the display is showing as optical/PCM, then the input signal is in 2 Ch Stereo.

Try to change the signal from the source i.e. the DVD player, On the remote, go to audio and press repatedly , the audio would change from audio1, audio 2 .... and so on, depending upon how may have been recorded on the DVD. If the DVD is recorded in Dolby Digital, it may show the audio as Dolby Digital 5.1 on you monitor. Once this setting has been done, your Receiver should automatically detect it and show as Optical/Dolby digital.

Please let me know if you you solve your problem.
