Thanks.

The Fastrack only has one audio input signal to the PC. You'll need to set your recording software to mono, then you can add stereo fx in your audio software.

    What type of microphone is it?

    Condenser mics need to have some sort of power supply to work. This is usually provided to a 9V battery inside the mic or 'phantom power' which is sent up the mic cable from the mixing desk.

The MOST LIKELY problem is in your power supply inside that will require either a good deal of technical skills AND desoldering equipment, OR a ton of grey matter and a burning desire to learn something new, (in which case you're subjecting yourself to possible severe electrical shock). To go on, you'd need an ESR tester to check out the status of capacitors AFTER you've located the power supply internally. IF you've gotten this far, you CAN order exact replacements from Digi-Key in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. PLEASE pay attention to my word of caution about electrical shock, and I wish you well.

I can record voice, but no guitar. Just as many people on this forum, but i didn't saw a proper answer for my problem. I can hear my guitar im using pro tools SE. The light on my fast track lights up,...


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.

Have you been able to successfully do this in the past? What software are you using to try to record with? Does it seem to recognize the guitar in the software, just will not react, or does it not appear to see it at all?

Thanks, let me know and I can help!

M-audio fast track sound only coming out of right side


I havent played with acid a lot... but this is what i can tell you... most of the softwares have configurable inputs... seems like your inputs are configured as stereo input and hence it will pick up the signal from both the left and right discreetly... which means that you would need to feed audio to both the channels for the meter to pump on both bars...The other option is to PAN the track center and not hard left right... this would get audio to both ears of headphone as well as the output meters...
these are basically some of the few things tht will get u sound on both ears and bars...
The bigger question here thoug is why do you want to record in stereo?? and not mono?

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.

Low record level for guitar


first of all you want to have your guitar amp at a decent volume but too loud, just enough to be able to get a good signal. when you have done this turn up the gain on your mic channel so that your VU meter (level meter) on the recording software shows a reading of about half way up the meter. If you can not achieve this with the soundcard alone increase the gain on your channel in the software.

This sound guarantee a good signal but as with most recordings you will still have to boost the signal without it peaking. to do this use a compressor or a limiter and turn the gain up. if you use these dynamic effects correctly you will achieve the guitar level you want.
