M-Audio Pre USB

Hi.  I'm recording using Garage Band.  I've already drag and dropped the backing track but when I record the vocal via the Pre USB I get a double recording with a slight delay.  Sounds like I'm singing in a tunnel.  Your help would be gratefully received

I guess your output is leaking and you are recording it again to the track.
Try recording with lower output volume. :)

How do i get the recording onto my mac?


if you can connect via USB try that first. Your computer will see it as a storage device and give it a drive letter. you can open it up and selet all the audio files and move them to a folder (you assign) on your computer. If you don't have a way to hook up via USB you can reord the audio file into your computer by hooking up to the earphone jack on the recorder and the to the Pink audio in jack on your mac. open the software that you use for recording audio (garage band for example, or sound recorder). you will have to do this is "real" time however so if you have a lot of recordinng on the device it may take awhile to get the all transferred.

When i recored my vocals they are delayed so it goes over the beat instead of being on top of it and right on point


This is a common problem with recording multi-track sounds on a computer. It is caused by something that is known as 'latency' - basically it is down to the fact that the signal from your microphone takes a different route through the system to that taken by the audio playback. The AT2020 is a USB microphone and the signal therefore has to pass through the USB bus circuit of your computer. Despite claims of multi-tasking your computer cannot do everything at once so it naturally creates delays to make itself work properly. This will be more of a problem with a computer which has a 'cut-down' processor such as a Celeron (Intel) or Duron/Sempron (AMD). These processors are really only intended for basic computing (office type) use and are not really up to the high demands of video or audio recordings.
You may get some improvement by tweaking some of the audio settings for your sound-card to change the hardware acceleration.
This article may help you http://www.pcmus.com/latency.htm
If you are using a dedicated midi /music recording program such as Cubase then you may be able to correct the time lag using the 'quantise' function after recording your vocals. However the best solution is likely to be a hardware one Either buy a proper multi-track mixer/recorder designed for the purpose or get a second USB microphone - play your backing track on an external device - using one microphone to capture your voice and one to re-record the backing track (the only downside for this second option will be a gradual degrading of the sound quality each time it is re-cycled)

Want to copy files from Tascam 788 to IMAC's Garage Band


The problem is thus. You have a multitrack recording saved in a format that your portastudio recognizes and you want to use it on your imac. If you can copy the file to the imac as a file, a translator, if one is available, will make it usable by the mac. You won't be able to play it and record on the imac because maintaining the recording as multitrack would require one output from the portastudio and one input on the imac for each recorded track.
Bummer dude. The kluge method would be to play/record 2 tracks at a time (or however many outputs and inputs are available) and hope for some semblance of time alignment, after which you can fine tune it and then start your editing.

No recording?


The static after several seconds seems like this is a problem with certain versions of OS X. You might be able to fix it by downgrading or upgrading. Apple Forums say that it's fixed in 10.5.6.

You can double check that this is the problem by trying it on a Windows computer.

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!

Problem hearing a new recording after I press '2trk ito mix button?


Hi,

You need tro set up the monitoring capability in your recording software under either hardware profiles or audio settings. All "good" recording software has this monitoring capability. There's another thing - I got rid of my Multimix 8 USB, because it wasn't allowing me to monitor as I recorded new tracks. At first it did, then about a year into using it, this function stopped, and when I investigated further, it was coming up as a single duplex sound card in my hardware profiles in Windows XP. It is as if that functionality of the soundcard component had burned out. Maybe on the circuit board...

I now have a gina Echo that I bought off eBay, and it was the best thing I ever bought. It is a hard card - no latency! Full monitoring! 24 bit recording! A hard card with a breakout box instead of USB! My recordings have never sounded better. The best thing about it is that I sold my ALesis adn was able to by the gina and have money left over - they are out of production (stupidly) and can still be purchased for anywhere between $50.00 - $80.00

You may or may not have a problem with your mixer - check your software settings first. If that isn't the problem, eBay is open 24 hours...

Delayed vocal


If you're recording to an audio program on your computer (e.g., Cubase), there typically is a slight delay in the tracks you record with the first one (such as a slight delay in the vocal when layering over the guitar track). ou can change the delay in the "Preferences" for the audio card in your computer or you can remove the delay manually.. I do the latter. I record using the Audacity 1.3.3. program on a Mac G4. I find that get a 0.3 second delay in tracks layered onto the first track. So, after I record a track, I cut the first 0.3 seconds froom the beginning of the track (I give myself at least 10 seconds of "dead air" at the start. and keep playing the tracks until they're synchronized. Takes a good ear, but really is the best way to synchronize the tracks.
