Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, my bass is connected directly to my PC, i don't have an amp, nor a preamp. when I'm recording on my computer and play the same note for about 2 sec's the sound starts getting melted, loses it's amplitude and the sound gets fucked up a bit so even when I amplify just that part it's still **** :( Can the problem be in the software? I tried 2 recording programs but I even tried on windows sound recorder which is as straight forward as it can be but the same problem allways acures. On these programs i tried all kind of fix/filter/noise removal features like cliping but shows no change whatsoever :/
I know a bit about electronics so I'm thinking that I need an preamp between the bass and PC. so you dont bother saying that as a solution;-)
Oh yeah, and note this: the sound that comes to the speakers is good, it doesn't lose amplitude nor change it's sound, it only happends to the rocording files, that's why i can't figure out what's going on.
thnx in advance :)
*couldn't find proper product so I posted it here -.- musical instruments category ?!
1. Check to see that your sound card has a high impedance mono input. If it is a stereo line in jack, you will ground out the ring with the sleeve connection and will cause distortion.
You must have a dedicated mono input to plug into your sound card.
If not .........get a stand alone USB or Firewire Audio Interface for correct connection, as well as better converters than most computer cards. EMU makes some nice inexpensive units.
2. Are you watching your levels when recording? If your card has correct input jack, your levels of your instrument may be way too high.
Hope this helps

Hiya, it sounds a little like either the pick up in the guit is losing it (try another amp/combo etc) or more likely i think the sound card might be the problem on the input and filtering the low end of the bass after a while. Strange but seems most likely. Try a friends PC as well. A pre amp wouldnt help as if the card is losing...well you get the idea. Might have to get a different sound card.
Best i got...good luck
