    HHhhhhhmmm, not used express, but i just recorded them straight into a bin in media composer, can you not do this? Maybe try turning of open tracks and select one, like the little confused thing asks. I take it you are registering audio input before trying to record?

SOURCE: No video comes into AVID express pro only audio with capture

The problem was with the Mojo. I disconnected the power supply then reconnected it and it solved the problem. Thanks for your reply.

I'm a solo performer using mp3 backing tracks, a korg mutli effects for rock soloing and 1 mic for vocals all going through a mixer then outputed to Bose L1 Model 1. i. whats the best guitar effects...


You have several questions here and I'll do my best to help. While I'm not familiar with the "Bose" system I am performer that uses effects, mixers and etc. so....
1. Best effects to use. I would choose a small amount of guitar chorus and maybe a short digital echo, this is totally a matter of your choice, but in my experiecne, use as little as possible, you don't want to muddy up your sound
2. If your getting clipping, you have to much gain coming in, if you can you might try changing the settings on the "compressor" if you have such adjustments., or just turn down the output from your effects box a bit.
3. You didn't say what kind of mixer you are using, but typically your best off running your mic through the mixer, run the output of the mixer into a channel on the bose that has the graphic eq set to 0 or "flat", use the mixer to control treble, middle and bass rather than the bose amp.
4. Variation in volume of your backing tracks is an issue that you need to take care of before you play out. When you record your tracks, you need to either use equipmennt that will make the levels all the same, or sit with the system while it records and control the volume (with a mixer) as they are recorded, nothing ruins a performance more than profound changes in volume that override or dimish your main performant, (e.g. your vocals or lead riffs)
Let me know if you have further questions. good luck and Keep on Rockin

Using a Tascam US 122 with Cubase SX, when recording vocals red light (clipping) on the Tascam and in the Cubase mixer, I need to know how to set levels on Tascam, so there will be no clipping on vocal...


Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

I have a behringer Xenyx 1622 mixer and am using cubase when i plug it in the it says its ready to go but, something happens and theres no volume..and i cant set it up in cubase?...any suggestions..


When you open Cubase you MUST open a new project.

Then select 24 track audio for example... unless yoou are doing MIDI record and playback.

Then open up a mixer panel and select a channel to read or connect to a file.

There are too many options to describe and the "says its ready to go " is not enough information to know where you are.

You may have to imprt files or record music... Don't forget to select a track on the display of tracks.

Can I record on more than two tracks at one time? I realize I have eight imputs, but can I record each of those on an individual track?


Simple answer = Yes. Make sure you have 2 mics plugged in two separate selected channels/tracks, arm the tracks then record. It will record both tracks. You can record up to 8 tracks at once using mics, guitars, etc.

Can't record vocals


You can use any mic you want but you have to go to the soundcard mixer and enable the source for recording from the recording properties. If you have a separate soundcard not the onboard one usually it will have it`s own mixer software so you open that up and set it to record from the microphone input if that`s where your mic is inserted. If you use the onboard sound card then go to control panel - sound and select the device you want and also set the recording source. In sonar you have to right click on the track in the left part of the screen. This brings up the properties for that track. The you select the sound card input and output for that audio track.
That shoudl solve your problem.
Of course you will get a much better result if you use a good mic plugged into a mixer or pre amp and send the source into the line in of your sound card and adjust the rest accordingly.

Audio level Issues with Sennheiser Wireless MIcs


Could be your capture device.  Isolate this problem by monitoring the quality of the audio at the RF reciever, then monitor it at the camera.  I'm assuming you do not have a EFP mixer or other device that will actually measure your Dbm or Vu levels - what happens if you play the tape in the camera and monitor the output of the camera with an external device - even a TV or stereo? If it sounds good on your TV turn your attention to the capture card.

Taking recordings from mixing desk


As the Fastrack can only receive one audio signal at a time you would have to record each track seperatly into Pro Tools.

I'm guessing your mixer is a multitrack recorder.

Solo track 1 on the multitracker and playback from there into the Fastrack, with track 1 on Pro Tools set to record. Repeat this for each or your tracks on the multitracker.

When you've finished you'll need to align all the tracks in Pro Tools so they all playback in time with each other.

Avid Xpress Pro 4.3 says exception thread message not received when i try to capture


Hi,
i got the following message:

Exception: DIOProducerCV: Thread message not received.

After uninstalling the last Quicktime update it worked fine again.
Strangely Avid advised me "strongly" to install Quicktime before the error occured.

I need more tracks!


Your preamp needs to have 1/4" output jacks which channel all of the mic inputs into these two outs. This isn't typically how a mic preamp is set up however. They often will have 2 ADAT outs which output all the inputs in stereo or some other configuration. You may have one that can do this, but if not you'll probably end up needing some kind of basic external mixer which can handle all of the individual outs from your preamp through the mixer's inputs and then you'd run the main outputs from your mixer into the two inputs on your Tascam DP-01.
