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.

How transfer music to nook


First in the OS make sure that recording device is USB (Start > Setting > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio > Audio). Adjust the audio recording volume, as well (Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control > Options> Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, for some versions of Windows). Unfortunately you can't directly listen to the recording on USB in this software. You would need a regular turntable with amplifier and then RCA L/R audio to 3.5 mm audio adapters. Connect this to the Line In of the computer (blue port) on the sound card. Then set the recording device to Line In and unmute Line-In in a similar way as above.

Now try recording in Cakewalk Pyro. (I recommend making a short recording and then playing it back to check the settings.) Try the Windows Sound Recorder (similar to finding the audio recording volume) to record if Pyro doesn't work. You may have a problem with the USB turntable or your USB port. You should see a waveform if the software is recording anything. Adjust the audio so that the entire waveform is consistently less than 100% of the maximum. A flat line in the center of the audio trace is a sign that there is no incoming audio signal. I usually start the software recording and then start the turntable at the correct track. Thus a flat line for a few (~10 seconds on my system) is normal.

After recording, you need to export the file or files as MP3s. (I subdivide a longer recording into tracks but that can be a pain. Identifying the "break points" is not always obvious.) Then File > Export (iirc). Select the MP3 option and the quality. I put all my music into the myusername/music/recordings subfolder (I created the folder) to make them easier to find again.

Connect the USB cable from the Nook to the computer. Access the Nook from the File Explorer. (Double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon with Windows, it's the Devices icon on a Mac.) Then double-click on the Nook's icon (there may be more than one).

Open a second explorer window to the directory where you saved the MP3s. Then just drag and drop the files/folders to the Nook. If you put the files onto the internal memory of the Nook, make sure to put them in the My Music or My Audiobooks folders. (You can do transfer the files to the memory card without plugging in the USB cable, if you have a card reader. Just be careful not to lock the read/write switch on the card and do not reformat it.)

I've used several programs and found Audacity (free) to be just as good and straight-forward to use. However, the programs all work the same way. If the USB device isn't working (or the default recording device), you get nothing.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I will note that most of my recordings were done from cassettes using Line-in from the headphone jack. Thus I only had to diagnose problems with the patch cable and the default recording device once I checked that my headphones worked for the tape. I saved my recordings as WAV and then burned them to CD as Disc At Once for a player that didn't read MP3s.)

How do I rebuild the MBR?


Hi,

You will need an XP install CD for this and also set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
  3. When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.
  4. The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
    To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
  5. The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis. To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
    Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.
  6. Type fixmbr and then press Enter.
  7. The fixmbr utility will write a master boot record to the hard drive that you're currently using to boot into Windows XP. This will repair any corruption or damage that the master boot record may have.
  8. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a corrupt master boot record was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Regards.

I can't hear myself when recording on sony acid 7 pro


this is a sound card configuration issue. many new pcs and laptop have the sound card configuration in the registry. many previously available functions are either turned off/disabled or just not configured.

its a slightly different solutuion between vista and XP, the screen look different.

1st open the control panel and select the sound & devices ICON.

this opens a view of tabs for the sound card.

under playback...on XP you need to select the mic or line is as an available monitor.

under playback in vista, the default playback device will be displayed. a right click on the tab area provides an option to view disabled devices.

again under vista if you double click on the playback device itself, a new set of tab views appears.

this new set may support a check box for "RecordMonitor" or it may have a tab for Input Monitor.

in either case set the input monitor on so you can hear your input while recording in Acid.

If these options are not available on your screen, then the solution will be more complicated.

You wioll need some registry expertise. rather than that thoiu, try to get the latest sound card driver, which may have the devices configured.

if not then i would need more detailed information on your hardware, sound card, driver version and operating system to help you any further.

under xp and vista you can find the registry entries you are looking for by searching for one that is more frequently there.

You could look for EnableRecMonitor or MasterVolume etc.

the other registry entries found there are fairly easy to follow to set them the way you want them to be. In some cases you may have to add the necessary registry entries, but as I said that's not that intuitive...

I cant hear playback as im recording, can you tell me why?


newer laptops and pcs use an HD audio chip. sigmatel or realtek or IDT usually. their configuration is held in the registry. some functions may not be configured to even display.

1st step is go to control panel and select the sound icon/option.
that will open a tab view for you sound card configuration, looks different in vista vs xp.

under XP you want to select the recording options to view and make sure which input is recording.
then you want to select the playback view to see which items may be muted or available for playback. You will be looking for input or mic depending on what you are using.

under vista there are a recording and playback tabs.


under vista you can right click on the area of a tab and select the option to display disabled devices, which you can then enable. depending on the sound card driver, the playback device can be selected and a new set of tabs can display monitor tab and/or volume controls with perhaps a check box for record monitor.

you can double click a device (i.e. playback device) to see it's properties and it will display a set of tabs that may include an Input monitor tab or a Enable Record Monitor Checkbox.

if not then it means the driver was not configured to support the function. this is usually a registry entry binary value named like EnableRecMonitor set to 01. The registry is tricky so if you don't have the back ground, look for a newer driver that may have the option enabled for your sound card...

Everything appears to display correctly, but seems to be unable to recive input signal. ie. no signal on led meter.


Please check your default audio signal, you can find a little speaker icon next to the clock on the right side on the bottom of the screen.

Check if line in is open and check also the other lines if they are open

Have a nice Christmas
