How do I recover my stereo mix? My desktop is currently running Vista OS. I accidentally removed it trying to update it so I can play music in a chatroom.

By stereo mix do you mean the audio files (aka music files)? If so you can try using some file recovery software. Below is a link to a page that will walk you through the steps you need to take to recover the deleted files.

Hi recorded a file on my ikey under .WAV but now cannot play it. Does anyone have any ideas what went wrong , the file is fairly big could it be this?

Yes, it's possible that it could take a while to "open" a large file. How long did you wait before declaring that it "cannot" do it? Any error-messages?

Creative sound card! no sound!

Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

I have an ASUS A6M laptop and i cannot get any sound

Too many possibilities; can you be more specific, like when you try to play music, does the music "appear" to play, but no sound?
... or .. the music thing gives an error message like: "No sound or audio device..." or "need codec..."
Do videos play, but no sound?

If it worked before:
1. play a video and "un-mute" the sound bar.
2. Go to the "sound" icon in the [Control Panel] and change the volume setting (un-mute)

Please comment....

Recording with condensed mic and phantom

Some (very) basics with any live audio recording:
  • Have a very very quiet space in which to record, with good acoustics (this means a room that will give a flat sound, preferably one with carpeted walls and celings, but any small, well-furnitured room should do).
  • Do not mix with the interface. Simply put the gain as high as possible without clipping and mix later in your recording program (Cubase, in your case). You can always bring the level down, but trying to gain an already recorded track will introduce noise.
  • If you are recording vocals, use a pop filter. When recording anything, experiment with different mic positions to attain the best possible, clean sound.

After I'm satisfied with a track, I save it as an MP-3 file. This can be saved into your regualr Dell files in a folder. Once there, you can use Microsoft media player and drag them into a 'burn' column in the order your want them. Use a good quality 'record to' CD when you burn your work. Caution, once you burn a piece on to the CD you can't usually add or change anything. Once you are satisfied with the disk, use media player or SONIC to burn multiple copies. This is pretty basic and I am definetely an amature but recently recorded a 17 track compilation of old Hawaiin music played by a wonderful talented lady for her family. I even managed to layer ocean sounds and other cools stuff. It turned out great!

Problem with stability

Celeron CPU's will struggle with making music and limit what you can do with audio. Celerons are ok to play music but nor really for making music. Firewire is a better option for making music as it's really fast unlike USB. An option would be to get a faster CPU and try the soundcard again. But i would not use USB audio and would use an Audiophile 2496 soundcard as they are really cheap. Also midi is data and not audio, midi just works virtual instruments and is able to control keyboards through midi out. But first try a better CPU as a celeron isant that good for makign music. I know becouse i've been there done that and go really upset with the same problems your having at the moment. I played the midi files on cuabse and recorded it onto an audio chanel.
