No Real Time Sound from USB Port in Headphones

I send a sound signal through the USB Port to recording software program. Although it records fine in my software, I cannot hear it through the headphone/speakers while the signal is coming through the USB Port. It plays back after being recorded and I can hear it. So there is no real time monitoring of the sound throgh the headphones from the USB source.

The problem is due to the design of the DELL Laptop itself. It is not dsigned to monitor the incoming signal. I bought a cheap Behringer UCA202 USB-Audio Interface. It provides for real time monitoring the incoming sound. I can also hear the accompanying music while I play along with pre-existing tracks. It's not the highest quality but it was only 25$ so well worth the price.

How transfer music to nook


First in the OS make sure that recording device is USB (Start > Setting > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio > Audio). Adjust the audio recording volume, as well (Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control > Options> Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, for some versions of Windows). Unfortunately you can't directly listen to the recording on USB in this software. You would need a regular turntable with amplifier and then RCA L/R audio to 3.5 mm audio adapters. Connect this to the Line In of the computer (blue port) on the sound card. Then set the recording device to Line In and unmute Line-In in a similar way as above.

Now try recording in Cakewalk Pyro. (I recommend making a short recording and then playing it back to check the settings.) Try the Windows Sound Recorder (similar to finding the audio recording volume) to record if Pyro doesn't work. You may have a problem with the USB turntable or your USB port. You should see a waveform if the software is recording anything. Adjust the audio so that the entire waveform is consistently less than 100% of the maximum. A flat line in the center of the audio trace is a sign that there is no incoming audio signal. I usually start the software recording and then start the turntable at the correct track. Thus a flat line for a few (~10 seconds on my system) is normal.

After recording, you need to export the file or files as MP3s. (I subdivide a longer recording into tracks but that can be a pain. Identifying the "break points" is not always obvious.) Then File > Export (iirc). Select the MP3 option and the quality. I put all my music into the myusername/music/recordings subfolder (I created the folder) to make them easier to find again.

Connect the USB cable from the Nook to the computer. Access the Nook from the File Explorer. (Double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon with Windows, it's the Devices icon on a Mac.) Then double-click on the Nook's icon (there may be more than one).

Open a second explorer window to the directory where you saved the MP3s. Then just drag and drop the files/folders to the Nook. If you put the files onto the internal memory of the Nook, make sure to put them in the My Music or My Audiobooks folders. (You can do transfer the files to the memory card without plugging in the USB cable, if you have a card reader. Just be careful not to lock the read/write switch on the card and do not reformat it.)

I've used several programs and found Audacity (free) to be just as good and straight-forward to use. However, the programs all work the same way. If the USB device isn't working (or the default recording device), you get nothing.

I hope this helps.

(I will note that most of my recordings were done from cassettes using Line-in from the headphone jack. Thus I only had to diagnose problems with the patch cable and the default recording device once I checked that my headphones worked for the tape. I saved my recordings as WAV and then burned them to CD as Disc At Once for a player that didn't read MP3s.)

While the Mackie Onyx 1220i unit is plugged into my computer I can port the sound through to my headphones via the headphone jack on the console. When I listen to sound play for about 2 minutes I'll...


OK... first thing is to DUMP ALL anti-virus and Anti_spyware and real time defragging programs as these resource hogs **** processing away from teh sound generation. Also is you are recording at the same time, if your disk is fragmented requiring a lot of head movement to record the time lags can cause buffer underruns and break up of audio... and eventually having the audio program "crashing" due to lack of throughput.
When doing audio work suspend all the resource hogs like the above mentioned programs. It is a good idea when recording CD's as well.

I have a st69 and every time I record, the vocals while recording sound very chorus like in the headphones, but they sound fine when I listen to the play back, please help.


Check the mixer settings to be sure you are not sending multiple mixes or effects to the monitor (headphone) output. The output used for recording does not necessarily have the identical sound sources and mixing path as the headphone, so make sure the headphone is monitoring the same signal as the recording output.

Can't send instruments (live or recordings) to the tape output.. (does not see signal in Cubasis)


Anything you hear in the mains SHOULD come out the "tape out" jacks UNLESS you have the "tape to mains" button pressed in. (That is for driving the mains from tape or CD) Remember these are line level signals.

Not sure about Cybasis? Is that Cubase software? If this is through a USB port, Cubase, if that is what you have, has to be set up to receive the signals onto tracks. There are a lot of things to NOT get set right with this program... Always use a set of headphones to verify that signals are coming through the mixer.

Trouble recording records


When recording from a phonograph, I use the following items.
5220ee0.jpg
Depending on the phonograph whether or not it's MC or MM makes a difference in sound although most can't tell the difference. Also, you need to know if your phonograph requires a pre-pre amp or if that pre-pre amp is built in and the line coming out is at line level. The Rolls item is a pre-pre amp unit which takes to older phonographs signal level to that of input levels which allow the phonograph to be connected to any aux line in.

On the back of the computer, you can plug the RCA jacks from the phonograph into the adapter and directly into your computer via the MIC (usually pink) input. Most of the time this is sufficient. If the volume is too loud, or sounds horrible, chances are you have a pre-pre amp and you then plug it into the line in (usually blue)

First I would connect the RCA's from the phonograph to the adapter and plug it into the mic and see how the sound is.

Keep in mind that you do not use the ROLLs unit when connecting this way. If it's too loud or distorted, plug it into the line in.

For recording, you can download Audacity which is free and a wonderful editing program.

Sound in one ear only


The Fastrack only has one audio input signal to the PC. You'll need to set your recording software to mono, then you can add stereo fx in your audio software.

Problem hearing a new recording after I press '2trk ito mix button?


Hi,

You need tro set up the monitoring capability in your recording software under either hardware profiles or audio settings. All "good" recording software has this monitoring capability. There's another thing - I got rid of my Multimix 8 USB, because it wasn't allowing me to monitor as I recorded new tracks. At first it did, then about a year into using it, this function stopped, and when I investigated further, it was coming up as a single duplex sound card in my hardware profiles in Windows XP. It is as if that functionality of the soundcard component had burned out. Maybe on the circuit board...

I now have a gina Echo that I bought off eBay, and it was the best thing I ever bought. It is a hard card - no latency! Full monitoring! 24 bit recording! A hard card with a breakout box instead of USB! My recordings have never sounded better. The best thing about it is that I sold my ALesis adn was able to by the gina and have money left over - they are out of production (stupidly) and can still be purchased for anywhere between $50.00 - $80.00

You may or may not have a problem with your mixer - check your software settings first. If that isn't the problem, eBay is open 24 hours...

I've bought a logitech quickcam communicate STX. When I installed it first it worked fine. Someone unpluged it from the usb port and it wouldn't work. I re-installed the drivers and it was fine again but...


The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
