Get a 1/8" stereo to mono splitter from radio shack or the like. it should have 1 1/8"male end, and two female ends, you could possibly get a 1/8" male with 2 1/4" female connectors, or use an all 1/4 inch adapter, with a 14/ to 1/8 adapter on the male end.

this should divide the guitar and vocals into left and right channels.

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.

Garageband not picking up the guitar through imic


You could try double clicking on the amp image in the Guitar Track panel on the right of the screen, and when it spins around, you should see controls for Input Source, Monitor, Recording Level etc.
Select Monitor: On
I found that to be the source of my frustration, when I couldn't get any sound.
Hope this helps

I plugged my guitar amp into the headphone jack, to record useing the sound recorder. I started playing and recording, when the guitar when dead. And the speakers went dead. In fact none of the jacks work...


As a guitarist did you for one minute think of the difference between the impedence of your guitar and the sound card of your PC?

If they were compatible then why aren't the biggest bands using a computer direct connection instead of lugging heavy equipment all over the world.

You do not have an 8 channel sound card, you had one!

Sonar LE: no playback b/c "NO MIDI OUTPUT" selected


You have to go in to the Sonar configuration and select what the default MIDI and WAV input and output devices are. That is usually handled by the ASIO driver. In your case you would select the USB mic for input, and for output you need to select your sound card. For midi you need to configure the midi controllers and the software synth or soft instrument you are using.
If you need any more detailed help I need to know what version of Sonar LE it is and what sound card. I am guessing it detected the mic and just needs the output device configured as I mentioned.

Can't get a signal with my Tascam US-144


Make sure the Tascam is has updated drivers. The latest driver is Version 1.12. Something that helped me as well was to re-route my sound card to the Tascam. Meaning to have Windows, use the Tascam as the sound card for the computer.

This is the advice I followed from a forum it helped me alot!

I eventually disabled all other sound cards on my PC. In my case it was simply the integrated soundcard on my motherboard. I did this in the bios setting. I also uninstalled the drivers for it, just in case. I was having problems hearing anything in Cubase before I did this.

I set the US-144 as my default sound device in Windows (Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Audio)

I'm not sure what you are trying to record so I will give you a guitar example.

Guitar plugged directly into LINE/GUITAR IN R using the 1/4" jack with the switch above it in the GUITAR position. You can use the INPUT R dial to adjust the input volume for this channel. The SIG/OL light should turn green when you strum the guitar.

The US-144 is plugged into a USB 2.0 port on the PC.

Speakers are plugged into the LINE OUT jacks on the back of the US-144. The MON MIX dial will adjust what goes out through these jacks. If you move the dial all the way to the left, you will hear the input from the guitar directly from the US-144. If you move the dial all the way to the right, the signal goes through the US-144, into the PC via the USB connection, then back to the US-144 through the USB cable, and then out through the line out jacks. You may not hear anything when it is all the way to the right until you have Cubase open and configured properly. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have MON MIX dial turned all the way to INPUT, you will not hear anything being output from your computer.

The LINE OUT dial adjusts the volume through the LINE OUT jacks. Make sure this isn't turned all the way down.

At this point, you should be able to turn the MON MIX dial all the way to INPUT and hear your guitar. It will probably only be coming out of the Right speaker, which is what it should be doing. Now turn the MON MIX dial back to somewhere in the middle so you can hear both the input from the guitar and your PC.

I downloaded and installed any updates that were available for Cubase LE 4 (I think all I needed was the 4.1.3 hotfix).

In Cubase goto Devices>Device Setup>VST Audio System and choose the US-122L /US-144 ASIO driver from the pull down menu. I'm not sure how important the "Relase Driver when Application is in Background" checkbox is, but mine is unchecked. If you click on the US-122L / US-144 section, you will see a button for the Control Panel. It will tell you what your driver and firmware are and what USB mode you are operationg in, etc. I didn't mess with any of these settings, but it is good to know how to get there. You should also see all your in's and outs. I have 2 analog in's and out's and 2 digital in's and out's. I am only using the analog in's and out's. Hit OK to close out this menu.

Now goto Devices>VST Connections and you should get a new window. There is an "Inputs" tab and an "Outputs" tab. Under Outputs, you should have a Bus for Stereo Out using the US-144 as your Audio Device and the US-144 Analog outs for the device ports. Make sure the "CLICK" colum is checked if you want to hear your Cubase metronome through your speakers. If you don't have a bus, add one and set it up as I have described.

Now goto the Inputs tab and add a mono input using the US-144 analog in R as the Device Port.

Now start a new project and add an Audio track using the Mono in and stereo output. Use the Edit Channel Setting button if you have to change your input and output.

Now with the MON MIX dial all the way to the right and with the Monitor button enabled on your audio track, you should be able to hear your guitar through Cubase.

Now if you turn on the Record Enable Button on your track and then press the Transport Record button, you should be able to record your guitar. Hit stop and then go to the beginning of the track and hit play. You should be able to hear what you just recorded. Don't forget that if the MON MIX dial is all the way to the left, you won't hear anything from your computer.

Well that is my Cubase LE / Tascam US-144 Getting started guide written by a newbie for newbies. May my pain and suffering alleviate some of yours. Good luck.

RECORDING GUITAR USING AUDIOPHILE FIREWIRE AND GUITAR RIG 3


I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.

Audio Inputs suddenly producing buzz/broken


The UA 25 needs a GOOD quality USB cable, the thicker the better. Cable loss means that by the time the 5V power supply from the computer reaches your Edirol, the voltage has dropped to about 4V, which then has to be boosted back up to 5 Volts and inverted to -5V.

Cheap cables will hamper performance or prevent it working at all ( I lost 2 hours once with this problme ) . Also avoid using the FRONT USB connectors on PCs, use the connectors that plug direct into the MOBO on the rear of the chasis.

Good luck
