Unable to get record levels to peak when recording onto HDD. There are input sound levels but they are well below acceptable levels. Any clues as to how to get the unit to display the correct and thereby adjustable metering? Thanks.

Your source may have a role to play in available volume being too low.

Page 84 describes Volume controls for both analog and digital inputs.

You don't really want to play chicken with 0 dB (all digital ones). Leave some headroom for unexpected peaks.

BTW: a digital copy of, say, a commercial CD with no volume modification will be at the optimal level that may meet but won't exceed the 0 dB level.

When i have recorded something and play it back the recording is phasing


My first thought is your play back volume is too high and your file choice is wrong. While your playing back your recording, press the down arrows on the ring of buttons on the front of the recorder. The top and bottom button turn down the playback, the right and left buttons turn down the "recording" input sound. Set your file area setting to "all files". Better yet set your recorder to these settings it will work well for most recordings. I got this on a 3x5 card and check to make sure I got these setting before every recording.
1. Input "on" 2. Recorder onboard speaker "off" when recording. ( not a big deal I just do it) 3. "low cut" set to 80 ( this will help filtering house background like your AC unit sounds from lights and if out side some sounds from the open air ) example; 124hz is the note B. So we don't want cut that out. So 80 is good for indoors haven't used it outside yet. This next setting is key for phasing and squalls and recording at all and that number 4. 4. Setting "Area" to "All Files". ( Not sure what all files does but it started working after I changed that to All Files so I don't care why just do it.)
Once you get these settings right all you need to do is make sure input is "on", and watch the peak light which is left of the record light. Make sure the peak light doesn't come on very often, turn down your input volume just a tad if it is, just under that is perfect. I always got to think of this to and that is make sure when you playback you must "turn off" ..."In put". That input on or off and and input volume is what I am always thinking about when working with this recorder. I have had this recorder right in the middle of us with a drummer, bass, two sometimes three guitars and a conga player. All playing in a circle. I set the recorder right in the middle of us on a camera try pod about 4 feet high and the recording are great. Just watch the peak light and it will do surprisingly well. I love it and the band is impressed. I sometime put it front of us when we play in a stage straight line but the drummer is not heard as well. So stick it right where you are and watch the peak light so it won't come on. enjoy, I am. patbham

With adobe audition 1.5 how do i get my voice to play back through edit view? Ive really been up all night trying to figure this problem out someone please explain step y step


First, be sure you see the audio track on "edit view". It shows the peak of the recording level. If it is a straight line, you have not recorded your voice. If the recording is there, you have to be sure your computer audio is set to play back through the speakers. If the recording is not there you have to set the computer to record from your input, either line or mic input. Set the level to the max. When you record you can see the input level on the two bars at the bottom of the screen. Double click on them to see the input level before you start recording. You want the level to be near "zero", at the far right. If the level is above "0" the peak indicators will turn red. You don't want red lights. Set the input level just below the red peak. Click on the red record button at the panel on the lower left of the screen. When you click the record button you may see a pop up that want you to set the recording parameters of the file. You have to make these selections before you can record. Once that is done, the record button will show the record position and audio track scroll across the screen. You will also see the level bars respond to the input. When finished recording click the stop button. You should then be able to play back the recording.
There are many adjustment and changes you can make to recorded files. The Adobe help files are very good explaining the features of the software. It is a very powerful audio system. Good luck and have fun with voice and music tracks.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I record from a CD onto a tape?


Two ways. You can put the audio out leads of the CD into the line in of the recorder. However you will have to listen to the recording by connecting headphones to the Recorder's jack socket.
The most common way is to connect the recorder to an amp and the CD to the same and with the cd playing back press record.
In both cases you must set the record level control so that sound on the VU meters peaks at loudest parts at around 0db, rarely going over (into the red on LED type meter).
You will need a 4way RCA type phono cable, the better quality types will give you a better sound. Connect the playback jacks via the output sockets of the recorder to the tape inputs of the amp, vice-versa for the record jacks.

Low Volume on CDs - Roland 2400 CD


Hey Rick, There are a couple of places to look; I'll assume you have a decent input level near -12db average without peaking. First, ensure during playback upper right meter labled MST is near peak without going over, if you have room push the master level above 0db to +1 thru +6db and recheck for peaks above 0db. (You never want digital recordings to hit above peaks, you lose quality or resolution of the sound) As you find the sweet spot, master rec to 23/24-16 using the elevated level on the master fader. The manual suggest editing and mastering with the master fader at 0db however if you don't compress your tracks individually or reprint them at higher levels, you may have a great mix at an overall lower volume, pushing the master fader should help for a quick fix, but if this cures the level issue, try compressing and leveling each track to peaks prior to the first mix only lowering tracks which are too loud, when you get to mastering, all your signals are at their top potential for the CD. Spend a few minutes burning samples at low, just below peak, and just above peak levels on separate tracks and playback in your boombox for reference to a commercial CD. You'll find little to no difference when you are in the sweet spot. Another trick is to mixdown to a separate pair of tracks (not 23/24-16) and compress again during master mixdown rec. (ultimately 23/24-16) Good Luck Jeremy Yates, Radio World LLC.

Is it possible to record from an exsternal device, ie cd burner to roxio on my computer... via rc cable out to mini plug in?


I don't think it's possible to record directly to cd. You can record from an external device to your PC and then burn that file. Depending on what you're trying to do depends on what software you'll need. Sound Forge is an excellent bit of software for recording. I use it to record when I play on my record decks, but it's the industry standard and isn't cheap. I think that the latest Roxio has a 'Record Now' bit of software with it.
Basically, you want to plug your external music device's output into your PC's input. (Normally the pink socket) and then use whatever software to record the input.
Be careful with the levels. You want it peaking just on the edge of the red!!

If you have an line level audio output on the shelf unit, you can as then the other end would connect up to your input to the sound card, if there is only a mic. input and no line input you can get whats called an antenuator, or get another audio sound card for the computer with a line level input jack.

A computer has line out and that means sound out from the computer to your speakers. A line out can also be connected to a recording device or a pair of speakers with an amp built in. Line in on a computer can be used to record audio from other equipment such as a Dj on his decks to record his set. It can also record audio from mp3 players etc. Line in can be used for mic's and also you can use mic in as well. To record any audio onto your computer use line in. Line out can also used for headphones and the mic will plug into mic in so you can talk online.
