Re: 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.

You need to check your setup's recording volume and interface. You did not mention if you are trying to record from RCA or digital inputs.
It sounds like your recording level is not set up to catch all of the music. I'd love to buy a unit which cuts all of the whiney vocals from good trance music it is very hard to do with all of the layers of recording.
How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.
I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.
your input is only one channel you should be able to go in later and copy the left channel to the right channel or make sure if you use any convertors they are all stereo and not mono (two black bands not just one) you could have to use some effects to get the vocals up to volume or run them through a mixer or preamp first.
it's not supported on that or any earlier sony software that I know of. have you tried running the program twice (simultaniously) and playing on one while recording on the other then mixing the tracks together after??
It seems that the recording input source is provided as "Line In" whereas you need to select the "Mic In". This is because the "Line In" is a stereo input and expects input for both right and left channels whereas the "Mic In" input is a mono input which is the same as our default condensed mic device is.
By the way, you would be able to see the graphic VU meters while recording, weren't they displayed that the recording is done only for one channel ? Always use VU meters for checking the levels for recording, they are available with almost all recording softwares.
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.
