I'm using an older sound blaster and an older dell with xp. Getting the sound in through my stereo is no problem, but the levels keep changing all by themselves, going up until there is total distortion. then i can manually bring them back down. The only input selection in audacity that works is ''stereo mix'' my volume control lists no stereo mix.
Re: audacity input levels change with every new song
From what I hear, you should try a new sterio system. Plus, you could se if the wires are all plugged in maybe that could be the problem. If you need any more help, Message me at email@example.com. Hope this Helped!

Hey there! its an easy problem to fix. in your box along the tracks wallyou have gain input and output you need to change your output to your headset (it should be known and headphone or speaker audio). Dont forget to change it back to master when you export the files or save it off otherwise it wont have sound (made this mistake myself)
I've included a photo showing you where its located.
I assume that you know your way around adobe audition 1.5 because I'm currently using adobe audition 3 on windows 7. The menus are different, but I'm going to give a few points that might help.
Windows Sound/Volume: Make sure that the sound card you are using is selected, specially if you are using an additional external USB sound card (which is much better). Disable other sound cards, if any.
Adobe Audition: One of the pull down menus located on the upper part, it has an option that says "Device Properties" or anything like that. This is where you set the input signal will be coming from and likewise the output signal.
The input signal should be the input of the sound card you selected in windows. Same goes for the output signal.
On multi-track view, check the track to be recorded. Make sure that the input is from the input of the sound card and not from anything else. The button for the setting is somewhere near the Solo/Mute/Record buttons.
If this will be set correctly, you will be able to play the song on the 1st track and record ONLY your voice on the 2nd track.
You can purchase a serial number from Sony.
If you can not afford a serial number, do not resort to piracy. Piracy is bad.
There are plenty of capable, free, open source alternatives that you can use.
Check out audacity.
6.8.3 Bug: Thru on a B-port
channel, it plays through the correct channel, but on the A-port.
This is a bug that was supposed to be fixed on the 6.8.4 update. Your issue sounds related to the original bug, although slightly different. I would try and install an older copy of the program. If you have an original install disk, with an older version of the software, try uninstalling 6.8.4, and reinstalling the older version of the software.
Plug your turn table into your input sound card (line in on your sound card) Use a program like Nero Media Player, or any digital recording program ( Sound Blaster or Wave Studio) Tell it to save the file as mp3, that simple.
If you are an experienced Computer user and have a Wave Recording program such as Audacity [free] or Adobe Audition [$$$] you can do this:
1. Your record player must have a LINE OUT.....usually go from your stereo receiver [You can get turntables with internal Line outputs...this is what I have...via ebay]
2. Output from Receiver [turntable] must be the small [headphone like plug...used to be called Sony Plug...now it's the 3/32nd I believe....
3. plug this into the line in of the sound card....it's the arrow that points INTO the little hole. Now the sound card can read the signal.....but wait...!
4. You must enable the little box in the sound card properties called "Line IN"....put the check mark there.
5. How to get to the Properties? Bottom right of screen there should be a speaker ICON....double click that. Then go to File....Properties....record.....then look for the LINE IN....check it. If you don't see it. Then you have to ask someone in person to help you.
6. If you get it working. Great!
7 Now open a recording program and press record....then play the record. You should see a wave file going across the screen. Then save it as an MP3 file.
8. Advanced tip: if you record at a rate of 59594 instead of 44100 then you can play the 33 1/3 speed at 45 RPM and save about 30% time in recording from a record. Then convert back to 44100 and it will be normal speed. I do this on ALL my LP to MP3 recordings...
The above is for more advance type computer users.
Simply re-install the software and all your original data will be restored. If you purchased a downloaded version, go to the site from which your purchased it and request your keycode again, and permission to re-download. Then burn the text file with the keycode and the downloaded installer onto a CD so you won't lose it again. Another solution is to get Nero.
I had the same problem. I was trying to upload a song from a cd to video explosion and I kept getting a error message. To solve the problem, I ripped the the song from the cd. The ripping process converted the song to mp3 format. The mp3 format imported into video explosion fine. I had to pray about it get the solution. Thank you God for giving me the answer. Because I really needed a solution.
press F4 to open device panel. there you must be able to select inputs and out puts fromyour alesis interface.
be in stereo or mono(check your alesis specifications to know how many mono and stereo inputs it has.
then when you create a new track on the right side of the sequencer window. you must see a input and uut put routing tab
so if you whant to record voice in one track select the inputs where your mic is plug
create a new track and select the other input
so for shure it will say alesis INPUT 1
alesis INPUT 2
alesis INPUT 3
and so on depending on how many inputs your devices haves.
you say it haves 2. but
are they 2 only in stereo
or two in mono
or one mono+one moni+one mono+mono
for a total of 4 inputs in mono mode and 2 in stereo mode.
i dont know witch device you have so i cant tell.
if you have any questions let me know
Certain early models of the Sound Blaster
cannot do both MIDI input and wave (audio) output at the same time. Thus,
if you've selected "Creative Labs" as a MIDI In device in Cakewalk’s
Options | MIDI Devices dialog, wave audio output won't work. Note that
MIDI output will work fine along with wave audio output: you can select
Creative Labs from the list of MIDI Out devices. The problem occurs only
when you've selected the Creative Labs MIDI In device.
