    I have the same problem trying to use an Audiobox USB audio interface

  • richslayerbc Jan 31, 2009

    im running vista. i use adobe audition 3 and a M-audio Fastrack USB interface..ive used it in audition many times before but since i have to unplug it(on a laptop) every time i want to take my computer somewhere when i open Audition it says audio input changed or something like that..and then it scaned for the fast track input...but now all the sudden it wont scan for the device. my computer still reads the Fastrack but audition will not let me use it i have tried (in audition) going to Audio hardware setup and it does not give me the option to use the fastrack device. also when i first start a Audition session a warning comes up saying "The output device ASIO Multimedia Driver specified in this session is currently unavailable.The master output has been automatically reset to the currently available default port. You will need to change the output on tracks and busses manualy to the ports available on the new device to hear all output." i have no idea why its no longer working properly

Follow these steps (Windows Vista):

Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Sound - Manage Audio Devices - Record - Right click to show all the devices (including the deactivated ones) - Activate all the devices you can.

In Adobe Audition:
Edit - Audio Hardware Setup - Edit View - Control Panel button - Direct Sound Input Ports - Enable one device (default input will now show the device). Now you will be able to record sound.

In have an new HP and instulled Audio Audition 1.5 while in multitrack view and am trying to record, I get a "Device ID out of range message" I've tried mostly everything.

Wow, it sounds like you didn't set up a device in the mixer for stereo input, or Adobe deadpanned that you wanted to record mic in and didn't ask to fix that going into multitrack. I've seen that often enough teleconferencing from WinXP swapping audio devices in and out, but by Windows 7 and 2011...this is a surprise. Just activate the appropriate line in in the input mixer in Windows (or more likely, your multitrack input mixer's controls.)

Surely this isn't it, and Adobe wants you to walk through the input level test modules first?

Can't get stereo input on microsoft xp

a yes, the registry issues and your sound card. lots of new equipment have sigmatel or idt or realtek sound drivers. , most have the configuration controlled via the registry. some have the option installed in the registry but just turned off at the sound card utility.

open your control panel. select the sound icon and that will present you the screen for configuring your sound card.

it's not perfectly clear that you are tryinfg to use stereoin as a recording source like whaty your hear or like stereromix.

Your registry may be configured to support these options, or it may not.
the sound control tab that you are looking at should indicate that. go to the recording tab and investigate your options.

If the options are not vissible then they may need to be modified in your registry. that's not always simple and not for the faint of heart.

You could also try to find the latest or alternate drivers that already have te function installed.

let's take it one step at a time. look in the sound tabs from the control panel.

I cant hear playback as im recording, can you tell me why?

newer laptops and pcs use an HD audio chip. sigmatel or realtek or IDT usually. their configuration is held in the registry. some functions may not be configured to even display.

1st step is go to control panel and select the sound icon/option.
that will open a tab view for you sound card configuration, looks different in vista vs xp.

under XP you want to select the recording options to view and make sure which input is recording.
then you want to select the playback view to see which items may be muted or available for playback. You will be looking for input or mic depending on what you are using.

under vista there are a recording and playback tabs.

under vista you can right click on the area of a tab and select the option to display disabled devices, which you can then enable. depending on the sound card driver, the playback device can be selected and a new set of tabs can display monitor tab and/or volume controls with perhaps a check box for record monitor.

you can double click a device (i.e. playback device) to see it's properties and it will display a set of tabs that may include an Input monitor tab or a Enable Record Monitor Checkbox.

if not then it means the driver was not configured to support the function. this is usually a registry entry binary value named like EnableRecMonitor set to 01. The registry is tricky so if you don't have the back ground, look for a newer driver that may have the option enabled for your sound card...

I recorded my guitar audio, but I am unable to hear it. What is the problem?

You might check your system sound settings for recording and playback. Often the device selected for recording is muted so that you do not get feedback.

For example, a microphone would be muted as a playback device when selected as a recorded device. This might be what is happening to your guitar audio input.

When ever i record there's a constant crackling/hissing in the recording. is this cuz of my sound card?

First are you using onboard sound or an added soundcard? If using onboard then the problem is most likely caused by outdated drivers or underpowered onboard sound. Try checking the software to see if it has any audio cleanup options as using them may help. Hope this helps.

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
