Background noise on vocal track

Got an Asus X53S Laptop, Behringer UCA200 and a Phonic AM120 MKII mixer. Cant get it hooked up so that I can record vocals and instruments thru the mixer onto the laptop. I've tried using Audacity, Magix Music Studio and Adobe Audition 3.0 Got my sound out of the laptop onto a channel on the mixer. Got the input on the UCA 200 hooked into the 2T RTN on the mixer. Tried hooking the mic-jack on the laptop to the output on the UCA200, but nothing. Tried hooking the mic jack on the laptop into the 2T REC on the mixer. Nothing happens... I'm going nuts... Hope you can help.

    My mic is hooked to track 1 on the mixer. The UCA200 is connected to the laptop thru usb. And UCA200 is also connected to the 2T RTN socket on the mixer using RCA. I've tried hooking the mic jack on the laptop into the UCA200 and also into the 2T REC socket on the mixer with no luck. I can record my vocal, but whenever I wanna record in multitrack (having music playing on other tracks while recording my vocals at the same time) the music is also recorded to my vocaltrack... Does this make any sense to you? :)

There is no doubt that sound on PCs and laptops can be a pain, and I have had to run a mixer output through the mic socket before now, such is the insensitivity of the PC's inputs. But you have done this, which implies that the mic input is not being connected to the sound system. You should have some controls of the way the sound is connected - try the Control Panel (assuming you have Windows) and opening up the sound applet. You won't get anything through Audacity etc., until the system is delivering. Sorry I can't be more specific.

SOURCE: How to connect mixer an amp to laptop?

How is everything hooked up?

Mic to Mixer, and Mixer to Laptop? Or is your mic connected directly to your laptop?

To do this properly, you will need a secondary audio input device of some kind that accepts line level input. Microphone inputs are intended for low level signals, and are not going to accept the input form a mixer properly. (you can get it to work, but it will generally be distorted)

There are various USB or PCMCIA audio input card options that aren't too expensive. Once you have that, you would need to route your music and microphone through your mixer, and the output of the mixer to your audio input device.

How can I reduce white noise / hissing I'm getting over the mic on a Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB setup?


Hi, you didn't say if the mic actually passes sound? The C-1 is a condenser Mic & needs phantom power - switch on the rear of your mixer. If that's no help, what happens if you disconnect the mic, then turn the levels back up? Still hissing or gone? If it's gone then it's the Mic - must use a 3 wire cable, preferably XLR so it gets the phantom power. If the hiss is still there without the Mic then sounds like the mixer is faulty - try some of the other channels..... How loau is the hiss - just in the background or as load as a vocal "one, two" test? A few things to check anyway...... Good Luck!

You need a mixer. Connect the microphone to the mixer and also the background music. That way you have separate control of volume for the voice and the music.
The background noise can come from different sources. One of them is from the laptop itself, if the laptop is noisy to begin with.

Hi, the speakers are unpowered, but that desk is also unpowered, so you need an amplifier in the circuit. This can either be in the desk, in the speaker, or a separate device, there are advantages to each.

Adobe Audition 3 Not Sensing Mic


Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

Cant restore levels


Sounds like you might have 'Fader Matching' set to something other than 'Real' mode which can cause the physical fader positions to be mismatched with the internal fader settings (useful for saving scenes, and used on the 2488 because there are no motorized faders). You can go into the 'Mixer Preferences' Menu (under the 'Preferences Menu') and check the what is set for fader matching. If it is set to 'jump' or 'catch' you should change this to 'real'.

You also might have a particular 'scene' being recalled which has a lot of saved settings that are affecting the levels.

You can refer to pages 39 and 92 (in the MkII manual) for references on scene memories and fader matching.

Hope this helps.

XENYX 1222FX Mixer


I've had the same problem. It just is like the tracks mix up with each other. It's pretty irritation when you come to the mixing process. You just can't mix track where the first one for example actually is some song. But you also got some guitar from track 2 on it and the guitar track has got track 3 and 4 on it and so on and so on.
How do you fix that problem
