Recording hiss when using Yamaha MW10C

Whenever i record through my yamaha MW10c i get a large amount of hiss background noise and the actual instrument i'm recording is quiet, like the signal is weak but i can't get it to be any more present. I'm recording through the cubase program provided with the MW10c. Whne i record directly into the computer, bypassing the mixer, the signal has no hiss, so it is most definitely not my equipment.

SOURCE: delay problem

Not sure how you are defining delay. Are you recording to the hard drive using the sound card as inputs? Are you listening to the speakers while you are recording or are you playing a recording back and there is delay or echo in that? PLease let me know

What USB adapter is best to use with the GXL2200?


If you're going to use a mixer anyway, it'd probably be better to run the mixer into the line-in of the computer. Even better would be to just get a USB recording interface, and do the mixing in the software.

Otherwise, Behringer, Alesis, Yamaha, and probably other all make USB mixers that should be of similar quality (i.e., very low).

Mic not working on toshiba a665 laptop; hisses


Get rid of all possible noise in your recording space. Pick the least noisy area to record in. Turn off any fans, heaters, air conditioners and other nonessential devices. Even an extra laptop or idle gaming console makes noise, so if you're not using it, shut it off. Close the doors and shut the windows. Place your microphone away from any remaining noise sources, including power sources. Don't record next to a window, even if it's closed. Remember that your computer makes noise, too. Even sounds your ear can't hear will become noticeable once you amplify your recording. Finally, turn off any cellphones. GSM buzz can be picked up in your recording, so do not set the phone to vibrate. Turn it completely off. Get as close to the mic as possible. Positioning for tonality and comfort has to be taken into consideration, but beyond that you simply want to get as close as you can. The closer the microphone is to the audio source, the less background noise will show up in the recording. Turning up your source will accomplish a similar effect. Simply speak louder, or if you're recording an electric instrument, turn up the volume. If your levels start clipping, bring the volume down on the mixer. Tweak the EQ. After your audio is recorded, you can often eliminate noticeable buzz or hiss using the equalizer. If your mixer has equalizer presets, try playing with those before you start recording to see what bands you can turn down to diminish noise. If you're mixing digitally, you can record the audio straight in without any EQ and apply one during the editing process. Finding the right equalizer band to mix down is often a process of trial and error. If it's a hissing sound, it's going to be in the higher spectrum. If it's a buzzing sound, it's probably coming from the mid to lower spectrum. A graphic equalizer is a great mechanism to form a valley in the EQ and move it around until the noise is reduced. Use a speech enhancer plugin. Any good mixing program has one; even something as simple as Apple's GarageBand can do the trick. Or, try searching the Internet for a third-party plugin. The speech enhancer will let you apply some quick tone settings to make a speaking voice sound more professional. More importantly, it will give you the option to dial back the more quiet sounds in a recording. This will help isolate the vocal and push everything out. While this type of plug-in is meant for spoken audio, it can be used -- with mixed results -- on any kind of audio. Know your noise gate. The noise gate is your key to absolutely silent pauses and crystal clean audio. The gate takes out all noises under a certain level and turns them down however much you tell it to. If you find that your desirable audio never gets any quieter than -20dB, you can tell your noise gate to turn the recording down any time audio is not exceeding -25dB. You can even tell it how much to turn it down: all the way for a clean recording, or maybe just a little to allow some natural hiss in. The noise gate appears easy enough on the outside, but can be a little complicated to master. If your settings are too high, you will clip out parts of your recording, making it obnoxiously unlistenable

Static Noise


Is it a hissing noise or a distorted crackling noise? If it's a hissing noise then it's due to a bug in Windows that adds 30 dB of gain. It's easy to work around, though: Go into Recording devices, Properties button, Levels tab, right click on the level number so that it shows in decibels, and then adjust the level to 0 dB. It's supposed to be at 0 dB but Windows 7 defaults it to 30 dB for no reason. This isn't a problem on Windows XP or OS X.

Hiss


If trim controls or gains are set near maximum, HISS is normal as electronics generates a thermal type noise.

If gains are set in normal operating area, the noise SHOULD be minimal.

Other sources of interference like nearby radio transmitters, welders, arc lights, etc. can create noise.

Start with ALL gains turned down and find which if any cause the noise to be unacceptable.

MAKE SURE all power to this and ALL the other connected equipment come from a single receptacle to avoid ground loops.

Recording on my Yamaha CP33 keyboard using USB


We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!
