1 Answer

I have an m-audio fast track ultra that when using either pro tools M powered or sonar 8'5 produces a series of clicks and pops whenever I set the program into record mode. Whether I am actually recording or simply waiting to do so the blips occur every minute or so. I have tried various solutions but nothing has worked yet. I am running an HP, windows 7, 64 bit, I 5 intel.

Make sure all other background programs such as anti-virus and anti_spyware, etc are ALL TURNED OFF. At high data rates you don't have processing power to waste servicing these resource hogs. ALSO turn off wireless links.

NEXT: Search for sources of electrical noise. Make sure you use balanaced lines for all audio connections where possible. Make sure ALL and I do mean ALL interconnected equipment is powered from the same receptacle or source. Ground noise can be a problem.

A final thing would be to kill ALL electrical except for the recording system to verify there is not electrical noise being created by a local source in your facility... could be a heater cycling on and off for instance... A thermostat sometimes has contact bounce before it fianlly makes or breaks.

I want to use my rode NT1-A on my laptop. how do i do so?


you need a recording interface (with phantom power if the mic requires that - most condensor mics need phantom power) to go from the mic to the interface, then to the computer. There are many USB recording interfaces - some easy plug and play interfaces include:

Then on your computer you need an application such as audacity (if windows), cubase, sonar, logic, pro tools, or any other audio recording app that will allow you to record and edit tracks. From there, you can install many different plugins or apps that can process the audio and add effects to the tracks like reverb, delay, distortion, etc.

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...


Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!

How Do I Capture Live Audio with M-Audio Fast Track Pro


All you have to do is to connect with 2 cables your cd's or dvd's output to the two 1/4” TS plus in the front side of the Fast Track Pro and a usb cable from the rear panel of the Fast Track Pro to your pc's usb port. I suppose that you have installed the drivers for Fast Track Pro at your pc.
Anyway in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

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.

Tascam Us144 and Sonar3 problem!!!!


Try this experiment:  Record a click track on track #1.  Record track #2 of the output of a monitor speaker playing track #1.
Now you have two click tracks which will probably not be cooincident (like they should be).
Measure the offset of the two tracks!  You now know your latency exactly, and can compensate by adjusting settings or moving the vocal track back manually that many milliseconds!

Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue


I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.
