I have a snap back delay when I try and record using my m-audio and protools. I can hear a slight delay in my headphones to what I'm actually playing. How do i get rid of this?

Like Graeme said it's a latency problem.  With the MBox there is a knob to monitor the input coming into the Mbox with no latency and a knob to blend the input signal with the output signal of the pro tools session.  In theory you're supposed to mute the track you're recording and monitor what you're playing in real time with the session audio using the input/output knob.  For the Digi 002/003 and MBox Pro there is a low latency monitoring option in Pro Tools that allows you to monitor while recording without doing this.  I don't think this is the case with M Audio interfaces.  I think the only option is to try to bring your hardware buffer as low as possible so the latency isn't too bad or use an external mixer to do what the input/output knob does in the MBox.

Hi emmastevens

what you are hearing is latency(delay) in the electronics, software, and maybe your computer is producing some problems also. Have you tried to monitor yourself direct from a mixer before you feed the signal into the MBox.

Why am I not getting sound anymore?


Amplifier issue. See if you are getting audio signal at audio outputs used for recording. If not, then it is NOT the audio amp and the proceeding circuits are responsible.

U might also want to check out your power supply voltages to make sure that the other components are being properly fed.

How can I connect Senheiser wireless headphone to Yamaha RX773 without using front headphone jack as this mutes speakers, I have hearing problems, my wife doesn't, I tried both av audio outs in the back...


Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.

If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.

Connect imac to amplifier


e4228d3d-a132-463b-8916-f7c5307ccb67.jpgI have looked at an image of NAD rear and it has RCA type jacks. I would plug it into the AUX sockets. Now to if it will work. Plug some stereo headphones into the iMac socket. If you can hear sound then the cable you intend to buy will transfer the sound you hear to the amp. If you want to record from the amp to your computer you will need another a different input on your computer and that would need to be connected to tape 1/2 out.
Any 3.5mm socket to RCA will do, they are not expensive plenty of cheap ones on Amazon and E-Bay (image shown). You will need two if you do want to record as well.

Im trying to find out where my audio outputs are so i can hook up my surround sound to it..


Hi, if you r are referring to t.v. connections, some flat screens only have 2 audio outputs-one is actually lti up with a reddish glow and is squarish in shape, this is a fiber optic connection that goes to the back of the receiver ( using a toslink connector ) the other audio out may be a small 1/8 inch( 3.5mm) stereo headphone jack-use a stereo headphone to rca adapter cable to plug into an audio input on the receiver. Thanks for asking FixYa, I hope this was of some help, and good luck-Prodzilla

Some actual model numbers would make this conversation more relevant.

If your PC speakers are self-powered they should accept the RCA output from any device that provides headphone or Line Level audio.

Where is the TV audio actually coming FROM? Maybe a Cable Box? THAT is where the PC speaker should tap in.

Many TV's have a Fixed or variable audio output. Fixed allows for disabing the TV speakers or turning its volume down without affecting the audio out to other devices.

The REC OUT jacks on the back are usually the best as they are not affected by the system volume. You'll need an RCA L and R Male to Headphone (1/4" female) adapter (available at Radio Shack and online sellers).

Line in / Mic jack help


So we're talking PC here, right?

I don't understand what you want to record. Going from the PC Headphone jack to the PC Line IN might be unwise in order to prevent a feedback loop. External (non-PC) source and PC MIC might work but you would probably want to monitor it on headphones again because of possibe feedback.

Does your MIC work?

Right click the speaker icon again and select Adjust Audio Properties or open Control Panel and select Sounds & Audio Devices. Select the box to place the icon on the Taskbar for future use.


Right click on the little speaker icon in your Taskbar and select Open Volume Control, if it's there. From there you're on your own. I have a sound card so I don't know what you will see. Look around, there may be a bunch of audio outputs and inputs with Master and individual volume & balance controls plus one for your Mic. Make sure it's not muted.

No sound driver


Turn the power off. Wait about 10 seconds,then power up again get close to the reciever and listen for a click-not from the speakers ,fromthe recievers itself.If you hear a click,you can assume that the power supply is ok for that cercuit.This does'nt eliminate the power supply,but it will do for now.Put the speakers close to the reciever,what you will do now is to power up the reciever while listening to the speakers with the volume off.In about 3-5 seconds you should a hear a slight click from the speakers. Try this with both speakers if you don't plug in a pair of headphones to the headphone jack and play the source . If you still no sound with headphones you at least now know that the output transistors are not the problem or the only problem.The power amp., section are defected also.Message whatever happens.

Headphone monitoring DP02


It was a bad phone jack adapter ... found another one, and it works fine. The DP02 ROCKS! I wish it had build in compression though - I am finding my vocals get too loud and too quiet at times. Maybe it does, I have to keep reading. So far, it does everything except the dishes :)

I started recording back in the 80s, and spent over $30K back then to get equipment that honestly doesn't do as much as this little machine. (I wasn't rich, I went bankrupt).

get straight into protools. it is worth learning in the long run, and most studios operate on it also. you can take you tracks into a studio then to work them up more. It is great software for editing audio and so on and sounds great. there are heaps of quick start guides on line to use it also. check here. If you are serious about your tunes... then just get into it and learn Pro Tools. It worthwhile
