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.

Gigaware no sound


If you have audio cables from your source connected to the capture card, then your Recording device needs to be the Line In of the capture card.

If you connect the source to the Line In on the computer, then you use that as the default recording device. Until I set this, the default audio recording device was my microphone (not connected at the time). In Windows, you need the Manage Audio Devices Recording tab. (In Windows 7 and 8, it's under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices.)

If you are recording something playing on your computer, then the stereo mix option may work.

You should be able to use any video&audio software if the drivers are compatible. Thus the software you used for the video recording should work. (Stereo mix may be an exception - not all sound cards actually work when you try to record that content.)

I hope this helps.

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.

I get a high pitched noise when in pro tools


I don't know what devices are connected to your audio input ports, sounds like gain is too high on a microphone or guitar or speaker setting too close to your work station, sound like feedback loop.

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!

Sound in one ear only


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.

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.
