I had the white noise static issue as well. The problem was the USB cord that connects the mbox to the cpu. I switched it out. Another issue could be the hardrive that you're allocating your files to. If you're using an external Hard drive Make sure that its formatted for Recording Transferring & Playback. When the noise appear, stop your session and toggle the playback engine between 1024 and 2048. It should stop the noise momentarily.

Well it all depends on what program you are using to record your music you will need to activate the noise reduction filter. or lower the volume on your mic but not on the program. Therefore your mic will not pick up any noise in the background and you will still have the same music quality.

Why would the output sound level on a MP3 vary so much?


MP3 songs are recorded at different levels. Many modern tunes have been deliberately recorded loud by the record companies for maximum effect.
If you are recording the songs yourself some recording software has a "normalize" feature. This increases or reduces the volume of the track to a certain level. Especially useful when you have tracks at different levels. By the way this is how they get CD tracks to play at the same levels. So you don't have to turn up the volume or turn it down every time a new track plays.

Play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards


I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

Having problems recording and playing back tascam dc-02 cf


I'm assuming you are plugging the left and right outputs from the karaoke machine into input A and B of the Tascam to record the stereo output of the Karioke. The Tascam works with mono only (you recreate the stereo mix at mixdown or when bouncing mono tracks together with the panning set). Therefore you should be assigning inputs A and B separately. You could press assign A and then the record button above track 1 and then press assign B and the record button above track 2. Then arm tracks 1 and 2 (by pressing record above each). When you then press play and record together you'll record input A onto track 1 and input B onto track 2.

Hope this helps.

Many Problems with Samson G-Track or not?


Hi.  I dunno if yur using pc or mac but with a mac yu need to adjust the mic settings on the comp. For the static its probably your set up or as i said in another guys problem, the usb cable given with it is **** so try using another one from a printer or wtv to see if that makes a difference for you. Also if you are recording just through the mic i find that it seems to only work well when the input is on line and not inst/mic. Hope this can be of some help. Its a great piece of kit once you get it working well.. Goodluck

Record, playback problem


Hi Nick,

The fuzz/white noise is a little confusing and it seems to be saying that you are recording something vs trying to record incorrectly and getting nothing at all. Anyway, despite that, I would try going over your recording steps first.

First off make sure your Hi-Z input is not set to the Hi-Z or guitar setting. It is possible your that MicroKorg is overloading the input and distorting. You should however have heard that in the headphones too, so I'm not so sure that's the problem. The next thing to check is to make sure your input is assigned to the track you expect to be recording on. (Press the input's button to check this. The select/record button over the track should flash).

Next make sure your track is armed for recording before you press 'play+record' (Record button above the track should light steady when recording).

Hope this helps.

I shut down the system, waited 30 seconds, turned it back on, and the recording went fine. Must've been a glitch.
