This cannot be windows, this has to be a lead problem to your speakers or the speakers are damaged.

Need help in getting rid of skipping and jumping on wavepad


I once had a similar problem. I found that it was a faulty driver for my Creative Labs Sound Basster X-FI sound card. If it is a sound card/driver issue, then it should show up playing other *.wav, mp3 etc. files. So, it's always good to see if you have the most recent drivers for your sound card. Also check your cables and inputs/outputs. It's not a good idea to connect to the "mic in" on the computer.

The other possibility is whether you have a "clean" recording of the mix. You would have to copy the sound file to a cd disc or onto a USB flash drive and see how it plays on another computer. If it is in the actual recording there is some pretty decent software out there to removed the unwanted sounds. I use Magix's Audio Cleaning Lab (www.magix.com) which offers multiple ways to remove unwanted sounds from various mmedia; the best being through a spectral analysis of the recording (sounds heavy but it's actually pretty simple).

Hope this helps!

I have a Fostex DMT-8vl 8 track digital recorder. Can I dump the tracks to Acid Music Studio 7 or Acid Pro 7 to save what I recorded in the Fostex 8 track, and will it go into seperate tracks? Thanks...


You can copy. You cannot just dump the file data. Unless you have an audio interface with multiple inputs, you can only copy 2 tracks at a time. Also, to sync the timing you'll need a midi port on the computer. Then you make the computer the "master" and the Fostex a "slave" device.

Not able to record vocals


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.

the problem is you are only recording on one side if you are using only one source, try using dual mics (with a audio interface with at least 2 inputs) or just record your tracks in stereo, then change the playback prefference to mono for listening purposes, then change back to stereo before mixdown

Memory Problems


The clip can be recovered if you open the temporary directory where Camtasia stores the raw captures in AVI format. The path to the temporary directory can be found by opening the Camtasia Recorder > Tools > Options > Program > Temporary file folder (I'm using v.5 so it may be a little different in other versions).

I've found that there's a certain workflow that seems to work best and you can avoid accidentally erasing your temporary files and having to start your capture session over from the beginning...

  1. Stop Camtasia Recorder - Pressing the Stop button on the Recorder likely won't work, so open the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) and select "CamRecorder.exe" from the Processes tab and click "End Process". Don't open Camtasia Studio right away after doing this step - You'll likely be prompted to recover the recording and in my experience Camtasia hasn't done a very good job at being able to do this successfully and you may end up losing your temp files.
  2. Recover your raw capture files - Navigate to the path where Camtasia stores its Temp files (look above for instructions). Typically, there will be a folder titled "CamCapture{random string of numbers/letters}" - look for a folder with a date modified attribute of the date/time you were working on your project. In that folder, there will likely be several audio and video files as well as an XML data file. The video files will all be 1GB apiece as Camtasia splits the capture into chunks and then pieces them back together to create one continuous file. Cut and paste the files from this folder into a new location outside of the Temp directory. The most important one is the FileWriter{random string}.avi as this is the pieced together file - It will have the largest file size.
  3. Add your media files to the clip bin/timeline - Start a new Camtasia project and import the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip into the Clip Bin and drag it onto the timeline. Now all of your video/audio should be recovered and available for you to edit. If you have particularly long clips, you may want to check how the audio syncs with the the video towards the end of the clip. If it's messed up at all, you may want to try adding the smaller, chunked recording segments sequentially onto the timeline to see if that helps. If the FileWrite{xxx}.avi clip is good though, you can delete all of the other smaller audio and video clips associated with the capture from your pc to save space - just keep the FileWriter{xxx}.avi clip - the XML can be deleted too.
Good luck - We've had the same trouble here and we use Camtasia almost everyday. In my experience, this seems to happen more frequently when we capture larger dimensions - especially if the capture contains full motion video (as opposed to just screen captures of a product demo or something) and we always seem to have trouble when capturing things that play back FLV or SWF clips at a higher bitrate. This issue is also described in TechSmith's Camtasia knowledge base.

Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue


I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.
