Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy LS Sound Card

1 Answer

Playback is faster than recorded

When recording vocals on my multitracking software, at the end of a 4 minute song, the vocals are about 3 seconds ahead, although the vocals were recorded in sync with MIDI music.
Even when recording casettes, the playback is faster. Any recorded audio is faster then what it was recorded at. This occurs with all software and in Windows 98 and XP with my Audigy LS sound card.
This started occuring when I upgraded to 64-bit hardware from 32-bit, and upgraded my Sounblaster 512 to the Audigy LS.
Anything recorded before this still plays back in sync.

Sounds like you may be recording electrical interference from another electrical source as well while trying to record your vocals. Try unplugging other electrical devices that are in the area of your recording equipment, then try recording again. If that doesn't work, move your recording equipment to another location and try to record again.

I am going insane trying to figure out why my vocals are recording so inconsistently - volume all over the place. It isn't obvious until I take the wave file to my engineer who's recording my CD. ...

hmm, it could be something simple such as a faulty cable from mic to pc, it could be a faulty input if you are using a mixer, could be a faulty mic, it could even be a piece of software running in the background that is conflicting with sonar and causing this problem. This should be an easy problem for your "engineer" to sort out. as seeing it makes it 100 times easier to fault find. Thats part of being an engineer!

Using a Tascam US 122 with Cubase SX, when recording vocals red light (clipping) on the Tascam and in the Cubase mixer, I need to know how to set levels on Tascam, so there will be no clipping on vocal...

Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

Trying to record directly in with voice and seems to record the exisiting sample track delayed behind aswell as the vocals

What software are you using to record on. Some have sound on sound settings which must be changed to overwrite. Also try deleting sample track or creating a new project or file. If you can give more details I might can help you.

Recording on cubase

Remember when recording in 24-bits, you have 8 bits EXTRA over 16-bit recording, per voltage sample.  This means that for each voltage step that would be recorded in a 16-bit recording, a 24-bit recording will take 256 steps!  In other words, the fidelity is MUCH greater, so even if your levels seem low, that can be OK, since you have around 100 dB of headroom to play with, and can increase the signal many times with acceptable fidelity.  What you DON'T want to do in digital recording is CLIP, which is a virtually unrecoverable fault in the recording.

Tascam Us144 and Sonar3 problem!!!!

Try this experiment:  Record a click track on track #1.  Record track #2 of the output of a monitor speaker playing track #1.
Now you have two click tracks which will probably not be cooincident (like they should be).
Measure the offset of the two tracks!  You now know your latency exactly, and can compensate by adjusting settings or moving the vocal track back manually that many milliseconds!
