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

In Protools go into hardware setup and make sure that your interface is being read properly. It may be set to something other then your fast track. Then, in the MIX window make sure that your input is set correctly. If your microphone is plugged into input 1, your input on your protools track should correspond to that.

I can record voice, but not guitar. I see the signal for the guitar, but just not recording. I following the same directions I would for voice but does not work. Any suggestions? Thanks


There is a button on the front that switches between XLR and 1/4" inputs. Make sure that your mic doesn't require phantom power, as the FastTrack doesn't supply the right voltage.

Samson G-Track mic does not work with garageband effects


Look man just use the input as a way for your pre-amp's to plug in.... you don't want any of those built in guitar effects anyways... You just need a good multi pedal.. There are many good recording Pre-amps out there that work great and are fully adjustable for easy recording.. You can do what you want but, I think you will like the sound of pre-amp effects pedals in your computer set up....

Thats just a tip

Taking recordings from mixing desk


As the Fastrack can only receive one audio signal at a time you would have to record each track seperatly into Pro Tools.

I'm guessing your mixer is a multitrack recorder.

Solo track 1 on the multitracker and playback from there into the Fastrack, with track 1 on Pro Tools set to record. Repeat this for each or your tracks on the multitracker.

When you've finished you'll need to align all the tracks in Pro Tools so they all playback in time with each other.

M-Audio Fast Track Pro


Hi,

I guess if your still looking for an answer your probably desperate. Never the less, if someone else is looking for an answer you need to select FT Pro in the preferances. Basically, you have to tell the software what to record and when. Pretty easy really.
