Question about Alesis iO | 2 Sound Card

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

Garageband not picking up the guitar through imic


You could try double clicking on the amp image in the Guitar Track panel on the right of the screen, and when it spins around, you should see controls for Input Source, Monitor, Recording Level etc.
Select Monitor: On
I found that to be the source of my frustration, when I couldn't get any sound.
Hope this helps

No internal wave signal


sample rate is wrong. You most likely have a bad codec installed or the wrong drivers for the audio card. install direct x if your on windows and install the manufactures site

I cant hook up mic and guitar same time


get a 1/8" stereo to mono splitter from radio shack or the like. it should have 1 1/8"male end, and two female ends, you could possibly get a 1/8" male with 2 1/4" female connectors, or use an all 1/4 inch adapter, with a 14/ to 1/8 adapter on the male end.

this should divide the guitar and vocals into left and right channels.

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.

Problem with guitar


1.make sure the guitar/mic switch is pointed to the guitar side. increase the guitar/mic level. increase the output level. 2.another thing you can do is check the "sound and audio devices" to see if everything is set to Edirol UA-4FX. If everything isnt, fix it so that it does. and remember to disable your computers stock sound card. Edirol UA-4FX is your new sound card from now on. 3. if thats not the case, try reinstalling the drivers. 4. If all of the above fail, you probably have a loose connection/ bad wiring in the guitar/mic 1/4" input. you can choose to open up the device and solder that yourself and possibly lose your warranty or have the entire unit replaced. Hope I helped! good luck!
