Question about Sony Sound Forge 9 Full Version for PC (ASF9000)

4 Answers

"line in" recordings noisy.

Windows XP: I am trying to use Sound Forge 9.0 on my Acer laptop to process 78 RPM recordings. I am using the "line in" facility with output from my analog playing equipment. I can monitor the sound and record with no problems, except that there are popping noises along with my recording. This does not happen when I record the same material with Microsoft Sound Recorder.

I am not over-modulating, and the problem occurs even at very low levels.

I can use Sound Forge to record from my computer's CD Rom drive cleanly, with none of these artifacts.

I am going to purchase an outboard sound card (considering Echo Indigo IO), but I want to make sure that this is going to work before I make the investment.

Will a sound card solve this problem?

Thanks,

Dan Carno

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand I am inclined to think that there is nothing wrong with your soundcard and therefore not necessary to purchase the Echo Indigo IO. Additionally, if the recording is clean using Microsoft Sound Recorder, then technically Sound Forge 9.0 would be using the same hardware devices, it should likewise record cleanly. A few ideas you may want to consider / explore:

  • turntable/phono output level is very low;
  • Line IN level requires higher level than what a phono output can deliver;
  • might an external phone pre-amp be required? That is if you are not using a receiver where the phone is hooked up first and the receiver's rec out feeds the Line IN of the computer;
  • try lowering the bitrate or sample rate when using Sound Forge 9.0;
  • it is also possible that the RCA cables would need attention replacement;
  • the phono normally has a separate ground wire that needs to be grounded to the pre-amp or receiver and for that matter, the computer;
  • it is remotely possible that the popping sound is internal to the computer. Try closing all other applications when recording and/or change the IRQ of the sound device.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I would suggest using the midi cables and going into a converter box.

    also the signal from a record player is not "clean" if there are filters built into that program experiment with them

Check the advanced record settings of your sound card. There may be an option "what u hear" or similar. After enabling this look for that option in Sound Forge.

Driver problem in compaq presario c700 laptop


Try connecting the headphone properly.
Check if its properly inserted.
Go for windows update............... and then check if the problem is gone.
If all the above doesnot works I think there is a connection between the metals inside your headphone portal, ans as soon as you insert the jack it gets connected and you can hear sounds from both the sources.
Thank You.
