Question about M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96

1 Answer

MicroTrack Levels are off balance

Everytime I try to record one level is always recording higher than the other. I checked systems and it shows the Left & Right Channel are linked.  Iam going out of my mixer directly into my Microtrack trying to record a Dj mix.   Any help would be appreciated

That sounds like a hardware problem requiring a service. The front-case buttons are sensitive to pressure and I suspect that they go bad if stored where something is pressing against them.

Recording levels are low


There's no record level adjustment on the Masterlink. Increase the output level of your mixer, or add a variable level preamplifier between the mixer and the Masterlink.

Or, use the level adjustment on the Masterlink once the recording has been done, and before you write it to CD, either with level control or DSP normalisation

Panasonic dvx100p is not recording audio


You may have switched the audio channels to the xlr inputs 1 & 2. The switches are under the flip out viewfinder try flipping them to the internal mic and see if you get levels. If the audio level nobs are turned down all the way you won't get audio either. Always check before you go out to shoot, record a few seconds of yourself doing an audio check then play it back to see if you hear anything.

I have an Akai Miniak synth, and I get a very faint (but very noticeable) noise in the output that seems to cycle with the tempo of the light above the Tap Tempo button. Nothing I do reduces or eliminates...


If it is VERY faint, it is probably either digitizing noise or switching noise someplace in your system. You should keep your audio levels in the system high and reduce the gain at your recorder to improve the signal-to-noise ratio. The noise is also in the higher registers so EQ trimming of the highs MAY help a bit. Make sure all cables are BALANCED lines (TRS or XLR) between the units. Make sure all equipment is powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioner. You haven't given us enough information regarding your setup and what you are using to record, etc.

Cant restore levels


Sounds like you might have 'Fader Matching' set to something other than 'Real' mode which can cause the physical fader positions to be mismatched with the internal fader settings (useful for saving scenes, and used on the 2488 because there are no motorized faders). You can go into the 'Mixer Preferences' Menu (under the 'Preferences Menu') and check the what is set for fader matching. If it is set to 'jump' or 'catch' you should change this to 'real'.

You also might have a particular 'scene' being recalled which has a lot of saved settings that are affecting the levels.

You can refer to pages 39 and 92 (in the MkII manual) for references on scene memories and fader matching.

Hope this helps.

Microtrack screen is on and frozen


I was able to clear the same issue by removing the CF memory and erasing it using a USB card reader connected to my PC. I erased all the files and reinstalled the card in the Microtrack. Works fine now, must have been a corrupted file even though it only contained two mp3s I had recorded earlier.

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

Bass frequncy


Hi there,
Although I am not familiar with the Zoom HD 8 Track I am a former sound engineer so may be able to offer some general advice.
Firstly, because the wave pattern of low frequencies is very long, there are a number of things that will greatly effect bass response caused by standing waves.
1) The position of your bass monitors. Ideally these should be low down but not directly on the floor, especially if the flooring is wooden.
2) Try your monitors/speakers at a slightly different angle. Bass can bounce off walls, back towards the sound source and phase out the signal, rather like a noise cancelling system.
3) Try listening to the sound in different areas of the room. You will be amazed at how the sound pressure level will vary, simply by you moving from one position to another.
4) Never put bass tracks exactly at centre, always offset them slighly by a few degrees left or right.
5) Do some of your mixing using headphones, you will not have to worry about standing waves. But remember that things sound very different on speakers in free space.
Strangely, the reason you are getting distortion when you turn things up is probably because your bass is on the verge of over modulation to start with. Really bass is felt, not heard. You could try is to decrease your mid and high frequencies a little. The ratio between high frequencies and low ones will then increase by default and your bass may feel heavier.
What are you mixing?
