This is actually simple to do. Connect the line out on your tape player to the line in on your computer. Then download a free program, from the net called Audacity at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. The program is totally free and works great. Some recording studios use this program. In the middle of the main Window on Audacity set it to record from Line in. This is from the small drop down menu next to the little microphone icon. Then hit the record button on Audacity and play your tape. You can record each song individually or you can record the whole side of the tape at once and separate the tracks when you save them. You can even use this program to clean up the sound on your recordings. I have transferred many of my tapes and records to CD using this process. I hope I have been helpful and good luck

Tried to record from the xr600e tape out using USB Audio Interface Software but not getting anything.What am I doing wrong? Is there a off and on switch that I am not aware off?


Hi Cedric. I think you mean you have connected a tape deck to a computer and are attempting to record on the computer from tape using USB software? Does that mean the computer sees the tape deck as anUSBdevice? Does it have to be present in device manager, (I am assuming you use windows.) If this is the case is the tape deck listed in there with no exclamation mark next to it. If it is there and listed as functioning correctly, a visit to control panel/sound sources might be useful. Sometimes a user has to manually select an input source there for an externally connected device to work


GOOD LUCK WITH IT

Tascam 144 sony acid pro 6 no sound from midi track


It sounds like you may be confused on what the MIDI part actually does. MIDI records your performance, not your sound. Then you assign and play back the recorded performance to either a virtual instrument (in which case you should here sound from your computer) or to a real physical MIDI capable instrument (in which case you would here the sound coming from that real instrument instead of the computer).
The ends of the MIDI cables themselves are identical, not IN or OUT.

Recording not right


Check the recording buffer latency on your recording software. And so you know, you should max your ram out with that soundcard. or have everyone record there parts in as, 5 ins is alot for a machine to process, especially if youre recording to 1 track..brutal, and the final recording will be real muddy.



Keep me posted.

Sound coming through computer speakers instead of through fast track.


Check your audio settings to make sure that it's going to the right driver. goto: start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices out of the 5 tabs, you'll want to pay attention to 2 of them, these are the "audio" and "voice" tabs. Make sure that your speakers on are the external sound system's drivers and not your internal sound card. (Basically, make your sound playback the same as your sound recording)
