Audacity is a copyrighted audio source and does not permit you to record tracks or playback of any kind. you will need to D/L the audio file you are trying to record in tangent and then play them together through an audio remixing app, like Ableton live or FL Studio
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.
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.
you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
