you are going from a record(vinyl) to what before you are doing the ipod? a cd or a tape..when recording the tape..remember theres 30 seconds of plastic leader on those reels..need to forward the tape past that leader to the actual tape before the recording begins..the only other thing is that some recordings that are protected will automatically screw up your recording so as to stop copyright infringement..it may be sending a purposely blank signal for a brief period..and thats encoded into the original recording..
I assume that you know your way around adobe audition 1.5 because I'm currently using adobe audition 3 on windows 7. The menus are different, but I'm going to give a few points that might help.
Windows Sound/Volume: Make sure that the sound card you are using is selected, specially if you are using an additional external USB sound card (which is much better). Disable other sound cards, if any.
Adobe Audition: One of the pull down menus located on the upper part, it has an option that says "Device Properties" or anything like that. This is where you set the input signal will be coming from and likewise the output signal.
The input signal should be the input of the sound card you selected in windows. Same goes for the output signal.
On multi-track view, check the track to be recorded. Make sure that the input is from the input of the sound card and not from anything else. The button for the setting is somewhere near the Solo/Mute/Record buttons.
If this will be set correctly, you will be able to play the song on the 1st track and record ONLY your voice on the 2nd track.
May I suggest you try to adjust your audio settings inside Sonar. Also it is a good idea to always keep your C drive well defragmented. I once had this problem using Sonar LE and the only way I got rid of it was after formatting my C drive and reinstalling the drivers and Sonar again. After that the problem came back and then I upgraded from the SB Live to Audigy SE. Make sure you also have lots of free space on your C drive and have a decnt amount of ram.
Your solution is to delay or speed up the sound that your running thru to your computer. The reason why they put user recording latency under the options then preferences then audio settings is not because this never happens or isn't know about. If your sound is too late in the track you have to re-record the track with a higher number try about 125-160. A hint is to play some notes to the beat, check to see that you are in time, then record what you are planning to record.
Sounds like you do not have your audio recording source set correctly. If you're recording from a file on your computer or a CD via the CD-Rom drive of your computer, you need to probably set the recording to either "Wave" or "What you hear", one of the two. The "What you hear" can be easiest, but then again, if any other sound comes accross your computer at the same time, you'll end up recording that as well, so it's best to stick to "wave" if you can... or make sure all Windows sounds are turned off (Audio settings ->Sounds ->Select "No Sounds" as the theme).
Sounds like you have a latency problem. This can be for a variety of reasons, something Cakewalk admits. The reason for that could be everything from processor limitations, not enough RAM, your soundcard, or simply that you need to change the latency configuration in the audio settings menu of the program. Considering that that is the cheapest fix, try changing settings first. Be sure to follor the help information in Cakewalk - they can be a little confusing for Cakewalk (I have no idea why they can't seem to explain their programs after all these years) but you will be able to figure out what settings are right for you.
My guess is that when you record, you are listening to the previously recorded track, and playing to it. Then when you play it all back as a mix, they are not in sync as when you were recording them.
If that is not the problem, plesae explain further. You are able to monitor your previously recorded tracks, right? Not just playing each track "blind" and trying to have them match? Hope not. That is rarely possible - if at all.
If you are monitoring your prerecorded tracks while recording on top of them and it sounds different when you play it back, it's definitely latency.
Hi there Grusm,
It seems from what you have wriiten, your recording setttings have gone back to playing mode on your computer. Try the followings see if it sorts the problems you are having:-
Click Twice or so on the speaker on the right hand side of START manu at the bottom right hand. A speaker volume control panel will open up displaying volume control,wave,sw synth,phone line,Aux volume,video volume, mic volume,line In and audio in.
Make sure on the bottom of this panel volume is not ticked muted. if it is untick it.
On the top Manu you Options and Help. Click on Options
Select properties and Click on it, when it opens up change the setting from Playback to Recording by clicking in the round ring in front of the Recording sign. once you done that you can select the controls on the volume control panel to your requirement. Keep this volume panel minimise it while you are recording the sound, so if it needs altering you have it there infront of you at the bottom on the start manu. I hope this helped.
