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

All the speaker outlets seem to work fine, except the fronts, all will work, but if i plug the fronts in, all the sound then tends to just fade away, and then i have nothing, no sound. i can't figure...


I would:
1- First make sure you are properly testing using a reliable source, such as a CD Player or itunes. 2- Make sure the Listening Preset is not on Dolby Pro Logic. Make sure it is on Stereo mode and see if the problem persists.
What usually happens is that when listening to 2ch (Left and Right) Audio such as Television or Music and Dolby Pro Logic is on as a preset, Dolby Pro Logic analyzes both Stereo tracks, tries to detect the voices (center channel), ambient sounds (surround and fronts) and processes the signals into a 5.1 or 6.1 System. You tend to get a fading effect when Dolby Pro Logic is selected and listening to an old VHS, DVD or even music.
To remove a preset, make sure you select the Stereo button at the bottom left of the remote to pan through the options.
Hope this helps

I can hear them but they can't hear me


Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

The sound from my dvd player sounds like fast forwarded music.The voices are very light and sound funny...i have tried changing cables but doesn't work..can u help please...


Start over with some model details. Find the manual for the DVD player and then see what would possibly change the character of its playback. Define 'funny'. Are we talking about audio files or pre-recorded DVD's?

I have an Akai X-1810D unit. When I try to transfer a reel onto a blank 8-track, the end result I get on my 8-track is a lot of flutter. The 8-tracks have new foam pads. I used to transfer a 3 3/4 speed...


take a q-tip, cap full of peroxide (clean 8 trk heads / roller).......... make sure nothing is near 8 trk to cause any kind of vibration.......... have you recorded onto these 8 trk tapes (if so try erasing it by recording blank, no sound onto it then rec your music)

Hi, I have a Tascam 144 when i plug my guitar through an amp into it, it only seems to record on one channel IE it only comes out of one speaker, I can get round this by taking a lead out of the sub out...


no worries, you need to set up the channel you are recording to as a mono channel. It is the two overlapping o symbols in the track setup. Hit that and you should be in business.

I bout a microphone at Target. The name is 'PC Microphone with Detachable Laptop Mic' and it is from General Electris. It says it is supposed to work on Vista, Mac, Linux and Messengers, such as Yahoo, MSN...


Be sure mic is plug in the right input (the pink one).
Then open sound properties (in vista search for sound in startup menu) and then configure and test your mic in the recording tab.
