Distorted, horrible sound with IO|2 and guitar

EHi,

When I use my guitar with the IO|2 and an application such as FL Studio, Guitar Rig or Amplitube, it will sometimes sound fine, but then randomly will start sounding horribly distorted and unpleasant. This is solved by changing the input in the application from the IO|2 to something else and back again. It is terribly frustrating and I'm beginning to think there's a fault with my device.

I'm new at it too, but if you increase the buffer to around 256 or higher than you have it anyway, you might get rid of the distortion. Look in the ASIO control panel

Audacity is a copyrighted audio source and does not permit you to record tracks or playback of any kind. you will need to D/L the audio file you are trying to record in tangent and then play them together through an audio remixing app, like Ableton live or FL Studio

When turn on the amplifier without guitar and with guitar, it sounds really loud and earing senstation is horrible it seems like the speaker will go to explote it is a strange bad sound


That could be a number of problems, without looking at it its hard to diagnose.
The best solution would be to take it in to a local music store or repair specialist because unless you are a trained professional, working with guitar amplifiers can be dangerous.

Just get clean tone through NI Rig Kontrol 2


you need an asio driver for your rig kontrol.. you are probably set to use DirectX drivers, which will give you latency of 50ms and waaaayy beyond... By contrast, ASIO drivers will give you sub-10ms latency... Most people can play at around 7ms, but im picky, and no more than 5ms will do for me..

Go download the drivers from NI site, and try those.. if that doesnt work, there is ASIO4ALL... google and read.,. this will help ya

keep playin

RECORDING GUITAR USING AUDIOPHILE FIREWIRE AND GUITAR RIG 3


I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.

No effects


Double click on your speaker icon in the task bar next to the time (Or go to audio in control panel and find advanced settings)

Look for microphone and line in and mute them ...

Then click options, Goto advanced and choose recording and click ok ... Look for the input your using and turn that up as much as you need.

Then check guitar rig ... All should be fine now
