Audacity and Krystal (free windows based programs)
What about an LE version of Cubase or Sonar (little hard to learn if your just want to record something light and not edit).

Audio recorder


Hello Randal,
I am not too sure what you are trying to do. But it seems that you want to record your headphone output to a flash recorder of some kind. Well that is easy to do if your mixer has a 2.5 millimeter stereo output jack and you have the matching headphones. This is a inexpensive fix but it might be what you are looking for. Below is a link to Radio Shack:
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2272476
This is a stereo adapter to allow you to listen through your headphones to what you are laying on the floor as well as what you are recording.
If there is anything else please post back and we will try to help you.

Separate inputs on xenyx x2442usb using logic pro 9


Unfortunately, the Behringer Xenyx x2442usb only comes with a stereo USB interface. The documentation is a bit misleading, but you can only record two channels through the USB interface - the main mix L and R. If you need to record more inputs than that, you'll have to do them separately.

We use a Samsom MDR 1688 for a conference venue. Usually we record our conferences and broadcast them. However, it seems to be problem getting the sound from the mixer into the computer we use for...


The AUX output is your best bet as it is independent of the main mix, so the main volume control won't affect the recording. You will need to turn up the AUX control for each channel you wish to record, and also make sure that the AUX master is up. Depending on the software/ hardware you are using to record, you should be able to set the main record level using the AUX master. Start by setting all the AUX controls to 12 o'clock and adjust from there.

Does anyone know if it is possible to record from a DJ mixer onto the Yamaha CDR-HD1300 CD Player / Hard-Disk Recorder? -- i.e Can I record a live DJ set straight onto CD? And/or can I record a live set...


The recorder could not care less what the upstream audio device IS or if it's live vs prerecorded as long as the connection works and there is a signal.

I have Lexicon alpha, Condenser Mic, phantom power .If i record, the voice goes only to right speaker. I am using cubase le 4, stereo in/out are correctly.


Sorry, but the Lexicon Alpha does NOT have Phantom power and you can't use a condenser mic with it without a Phantom power injector or preamp.
If you mean you have a Phantom power injector then it should be working. Do you have seperate mics for the two channels of the stereo? If you have only one mic, then only one side will record unless you set for mono recording and then dump the recording into stereo voa Cubase. I would recommend you get a small mixer... even a 4 channel one to use ahead of the Lexicon so you can mix and PAN your mics the way you want them. The recording and trying to control the panning in Cubase can be frustrating... The Lexicon really doesn't have anything built in to PAN the mic to the center when stereo recording. Small mixers are inexpensive and often you can find them used or in pawn shops for cheap.

How do I attach power amp to 1832 mixer


There are a number of configurations for a mixer like the 1832, the most common are PA system and Recording system. There are Main output jacks which carry the mix as summed in the main faders. These in a PA system would feed the pa amplifiers which drive the house speaker system for the audience. These connectors are XLR 3 pin type on the rear, intended for professional pa amplifiers which use balanced +4dbv line input level. Amplifier which have 3 pin XLR connectors for input signals can accept that high level signal. For home style HiFi amplifiers, the signal level is nominally -10DBv and balanced or unbalanced signal lines with 1/4in diameter phone plugs which are connected to the mixer by way of a second set of Main output connectors which are 1/4in phone jacks. Use whichever amplifier input level your amp has.
If you are not using it as a main PA house mixer, but using it for recording, the main output connectors go to a 2 channel recorder or computer sound card recorder. The power amp and your monitor speakers are connected to the connectors labeled "Control Room" (CTRL Rm). These output are useful for recording because the signal through the mixer can be monitored from several buses, Solo, main mix, selected by buttons provided. The buttons only affect the signal heard through the control room monitors, and not the main output which only sees the main mix so selecting "solo" does not interrupt the signal going to the recorder while the engineer in the control can be checking other signal paths through the board.

I have a DP2 Tascam 8 track recorder. Can I come out of my 16 channel mixer into my recorder and record my whole band?


The Tascam DP-02 can only record two tracks at a time.

You will have to mix "on-the-fly" and record the master out, or record each instrument seperately, and just record the drums as a stereo mix.

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.

Recording


I always use either one of the Master Output's (you have two, ones a jack the other a phono so use the one you've not got pklugged into your amp), or the monitor output...assuming you're not already using these for instance in a club environment.

Personally I've been using a phono to headphones jack cable from the monitor putput into my laptop (using Soundforge to record), the advantage being you can change the level of the recording volume using the monitor vol, without affecting your Master Volume whilst you're having a mix!

Hope that helps...

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...
