Remember when recording in 24-bits, you have 8 bits EXTRA over 16-bit recording, per voltage sample.  This means that for each voltage step that would be recorded in a 16-bit recording, a 24-bit recording will take 256 steps!  In other words, the fidelity is MUCH greater, so even if your levels seem low, that can be OK, since you have around 100 dB of headroom to play with, and can increase the signal many times with acceptable fidelity.  What you DON'T want to do in digital recording is CLIP, which is a virtually unrecoverable fault in the recording.

I am going insane trying to figure out why my vocals are recording so inconsistently - volume all over the place. It isn't obvious until I take the wave file to my engineer who's recording my CD. ...


hmm, it could be something simple such as a faulty cable from mic to pc, it could be a faulty input if you are using a mixer, could be a faulty mic, it could even be a piece of software running in the background that is conflicting with sonar and causing this problem. This should be an easy problem for your "engineer" to sort out. as seeing it makes it 100 times easier to fault find. Thats part of being an engineer!

Using a Tascam US 122 with Cubase SX, when recording vocals red light (clipping) on the Tascam and in the Cubase mixer, I need to know how to set levels on Tascam, so there will be no clipping on vocal...


Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

No sound in playback (but can hear click track)


This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.

Recording with condensed mic and phantom


Some (very) basics with any live audio recording:
  • Have a very very quiet space in which to record, with good acoustics (this means a room that will give a flat sound, preferably one with carpeted walls and celings, but any small, well-furnitured room should do).
  • Do not mix with the interface. Simply put the gain as high as possible without clipping and mix later in your recording program (Cubase, in your case). You can always bring the level down, but trying to gain an already recorded track will introduce noise.
  • If you are recording vocals, use a pop filter. When recording anything, experiment with different mic positions to attain the best possible, clean sound.

Burn CDs from Tascam US-122L


The answer is yes, but it may not work as simply as you think. You can't just save your Cubase file / mix and then send it to your recorder. You'll want to render down the song you have to one stereo .wav file and send that to burner as a wav file. (That's the quick way). Another option is to render each file you have seperately so acoustic guitar, bass, vocal, etc are all seperate tracks. So the answer is yes, a .wav file is the format for audio cds. You'll record your seperate tracks and then you'll have to mix down, render, or export them when you are done. In Cubase, use "export".
