Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Ion turntable Just bought an Ion turntable. The sound is crackly and distorted, almost sounds like a record scratch, but I tried it on an never played LP and it was just the same. Adding weight to the tone arm made no difference. Bad stylus?

Could be, but check the wiring to the cartridge, plus the connection to your amp. A poor earth wire or one touching the other can make it sound tinny.

SOURCE: LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed

1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.

SOURCE: Tone arm skipping/not moving on especially at end of record

The issue is with your tonearm, and not your tracking. You probably have slight damage to the tonearm bearings, which will cause this. There are 2 options... you can try to adjust the pivoting screw at the top of the tonearm ... However, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, because once you mess with this screw, it's EXTREMELY difficult to get it back to the correct setting, as this screw is machine calibrated at the factory. So, we only recommend this when you have no other choice, or it's an emergency (the middle of a set).

You can view a video on how to do this, by going here - http://djprolab.com

Eventually, your going to have to have your Technics Tonearm replaced. This should be done by a professional, as it is not an easy replacement.

SOURCE: cant get sound out of speakers when connected to my ion usb turnt

Hi there,
How exactly have you got this equipment set up thanks ???
If you play another song on the computer from a cd original then what sort of output do you have???
Is the sound clear and complete???Bass Treble Mids etc

If the turn table has been set up properly the you will get a signal from the record deck to the computer and head phones too via the mixer.

Next is to check the way sound gets from the usb to the computer
Maybe the USB drivers are required for the computer before it will play correctly.
Try to uninstall then reboot and reinstall.Check again

If this doesnt work then try the make and model of the usb turntable and check to see if there is an updated driver for you computers type or brand or Operating System.ie - XP or Vista

Hope this helps ,let me know if you need more help,

Misterdj

SOURCE: using mac with the ion turntable to record

Funny thing about analog to digital recording without a preamp. You will record a signal, but that signal might be below the level of human audibility, if the line levels are left at the level that left the turntable, given the absence of a PREAMP.

My ion USB turntable picks up sounds from the room and adds them to the file


Try reducing the audio imput to your computer and make certain the computer microphone isn't switched on during recording etc. IE the Sound Control on your computer (such as SoundMax).

Bought an ion profile pro hooked it up it plays and sounds as if you had a dirty needle not clear at all however its brand new any suggestions


Hi, I presume you are using the software that came with the turntable.

I know this might sound a little (whats the word now), Patronising!

I have never really heard one but i get the impressing, that it's a case of, you gets what you pays for.

If you are interested in half decent quality, i would buy a good budget turntable with a Moving magnet cartridge HeadAmp and connect that to the audio input of your sound card. Because at the end of the day it will still take you the same length of time but you will have a far superior quality sound and recording.

You see, this is where people then start saying that cd is better than vinyl because of cheap inferior turntables hitting the market.
It doesn't give the analogue source any chance against the digital domain.

I'm sorry to go off on one, but you are not the first one that has complained about these turntables having such a bad sound.

You can get a good second hand turntable on Ebay.

Just to note - Make sure your records are in good condition, because if they are scratched, finger marked or dusty, then it could well sound like muddy water.

If you think it is faulty, then I would send it back, but i would get a couple of peoples opinion first.

If you need more help, let me know please and i will do some more research for you.

Sounds from turntable


There will be some feedback from the turntable, and this is totally normal. Ive actually heard the music from the needle itself, and is nothing to worry about

ION iTTUSB turntable has buzzing sound when I record


It sounds like you have a bad ground on the tone arm. It's probably time to replace the tone arm wiring, or the external connecting cables.

Distorted sound quality randomly


My first thought would be the rubber drive belt, as it gets hotter it might get a little bit stretchy and then when you give it a break it gets less stretchy [make sense ] but thats only my guess as i,ve had turntables for over 25 yrs , but then that wouldnt account for the mettalic sound, that would only be if the platter was slightly warped and hitting the chassis [the main unit ]

ION TTUSB05XL - Poor sound quality


the turntable has a built-in phono preamp so you don't want to run it through phono inputs in your receiver but just regular auxiliary inputs instead
