Do you have any light dimmer in the house?
Are you using humbucking guitar pickup?
Do the the buzz change when the move the guitar around, it may be picking up radiate magnetic field from the transformers of the equipment.
The preamp is very sensitive with very high gain circuits that amplify signals in the millivolt range, so godd shielding and grounding is needed.

I just purchased a Takamine acoustic/electric EG 350 SC which sounds great until I plugged it into a Mackey sound board. I sounded like distortion was coming out. In other words, it sounded like ****. I...


I ASSUME that you plugged your guitar into a DI box that then used BALANCED XLR cable to the Mackie board??? The guitar generates line level and the Mackie board inputs are mostly mic level... you will get distortion if you overdrive the Mackie board. You could try going into line level jacks, HOWEVER if you go any distance balanced interconnects must be used. Even the line level jacks require using TRS balanced cables. Try is using a DI box, and preferably one with a gain switch. Also fiddle with the ground lift switch on it for least noise or hum. I use the LiveWire brand DI boxes and they seem to work fine. Then it is important to set the gain with the trim on the MAckie so you don't clip. Also be aware that an acoustic guitar can "hear" speakers and you can get feedback or regeneration that will sound like you are in a cave.

Distortion on vocal reproduction on Vocalist Live 2. Even with input volume down to minimum a loud vocal performance produces distortion on single voice and harmony output.


You need to check the actual signal levels to make sure they are within the specs for the unit. The mic input is low impedance. Your mic should be like a Shure SM58 or equivalent. The output is fairly high... up to +14DB which will require you to turn down the trims on a mixer this runs into or set a -20Db pad at the input. I suspect your distortion is from the device output to the mixer input. It is VERY important that the mic does NOT "hear" the speakers as the feedback loop resulting will be mass distortion. The guitar should also not "hear" the mains.

Make sure you do NOT have a monitor speaker that is active! If you have a monitor speaker, it is POSSIBLE that there is a SUPERSONIC feedback going on that you cannot hear. This would saturate the system and distort your recording. Studio mics have a lot of gain and a wide response.

Digitech Vocalist Live 4 blead through


You need a directional microphone, and then it needs to be pointed away from the guitar. Another technique would be to provide some acoustic insulation between the mic and the guitar, like a wall or a partition like what is used to set up office cubicles.

Guitar


Hi,

Things to check.

I'm assuming you are using the Hi-z input on the front of the 2488 to line-in your guitar. That input equates to the H input of the 2488 (you can use the front Hi-Z or the normal 1/4 inch input on the back as the H input). Therefore you need to turn up the H input trim pot to hear your guitar coming through. You should see the meters for the main stereo bus moving as signal is coming in. That means your signal is getting into the 2488 but it won't be assigned to any track until you assign input H to a track. Once you assign the input to a track and press the rec button for that track (to arm it for recording) you'll see the meters registering both on the stereo bus and for the track you have assigned.

If you've turned up the H input trim knob and still don't get any sound, insure that the volume knob on the guitar is turned up as well.

If that fails too I would try jiggling or using a different guitar wire.

Good luck.

Electric Guitar wont play through Amp


the buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.

Problems recording with Sony Acid mucic studio 7!


This probably has to do with the levels you have set for the sound card - take a look at your mix levels AND the volume input level 0 this is not the same control as output

Tascam DP-02cf


You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You have a couple of options with your guitar input. You can either plug your guitar directly into the right (Hi-Z) input and use the Tascam's onboard effects with it instead of your effect pedal.

You can put your pedal in the chain between your guitar and the (Hi-Z) input. So guitar into pedal is, pedal out into Tascam Hi-z in. (Still doesn't use the amp).

Or my preferred method for recording guitar would be to mic the amp. In that case you'd just input a microphone (placed about 8-12 inches from your amp) and record your guitar that way. The mic would be plugged into either one of the Tascams two mic inputs to record the amps speaker output while your guitar, pedal and amp would just be hooked up in the normal way.

Please note: Never plug the output from an amp into any of the Tascams inputs. Those inputs are line-level and the speaker output level which comes out of an amp out would damage your Tascam.


To get a backing song into a track in your Tascam, you'll have to first, using a PC, get the song into a 16 bit mono Wav file format. Then you'll have to use the USB import function to copy that wav file onto your Tascam onto the CF media cards fat partition. From the you'll be able to import it into the Tascam choosing which track it will import into.

Cheers,

BD

Audio Inputs suddenly producing buzz/broken


The UA 25 needs a GOOD quality USB cable, the thicker the better. Cable loss means that by the time the 5V power supply from the computer reaches your Edirol, the voltage has dropped to about 4V, which then has to be boosted back up to 5 Volts and inverted to -5V.

Cheap cables will hamper performance or prevent it working at all ( I lost 2 hours once with this problme ) . Also avoid using the FRONT USB connectors on PCs, use the connectors that plug direct into the MOBO on the rear of the chasis.

Good luck
