As the Fastrack can only receive one audio signal at a time you would have to record each track seperatly into Pro Tools.

I'm guessing your mixer is a multitrack recorder.

Solo track 1 on the multitracker and playback from there into the Fastrack, with track 1 on Pro Tools set to record. Repeat this for each or your tracks on the multitracker.

When you've finished you'll need to align all the tracks in Pro Tools so they all playback in time with each other.

Tip

Studio Recording at Home; Part 1


For all of the musicians who want to record their demo, or even your next album, without paying pricey studio fees, this is the tip for you!<br /><br />First, let me say that it doesn't matter what DAW software you're using, as long as you're familiar with it and can navigate it easily.<br /><br />For that "full" sound that you hear on most recordings on CD and radio, here's a what you've gotta do:<br /><br />4 guitar tracks (two for each side of the stereo image, pan two out just a bit farther than the others).<br /><br />2 bass tracks (one recorded direct in [DI], the other amped)<br /><br />A single drum track<br /><br />Vocals to taste<br /><br />For the guitars, if you don't have an amp, or the equipment to record an amped guitar, there are plenty of amp simulation programs available. If you are using an amp, you'll want to place the mic in front of the amp, slightly to the side, pointed at the midway point between the center and the edge of the speaker.<br /><br />For bass, recording DI without a DI box can be a pain. That's where the amp sims come into play. Record two tracks simultaneously, and only apply the amp sim to one track.<br /><br /><br />That's all for this tip. Stay tuned for part Deux of Studio Recording at Home!<br />

In Protools go into hardware setup and make sure that your interface is being read properly. It may be set to something other then your fast track. Then, in the MIX window make sure that your input is set correctly. If your microphone is plugged into input 1, your input on your protools track should correspond to that.

Seperate tracks


They have to be recorded on SEPERATE tracks if you want to keep them seperate. It will be hard to do this live as if you mic acoustics you will still get some cross feed in the mics from the different percussions.

With an electronic drum set it may be even harder as they often only have a single mixed output.

The way the professionals would do this is to play the kick and record it on a track... and then play that track back and record the snare and hat each seperately on other tracks.

Once you have synced tracks of the parts, then you can mix anyway you want.

With electronic drums you COULD have two seperate modules to give you two seperate outputs, but that is a budget breaker.

I have a DP2 Tascam 8 track recorder. Can I come out of my 16 channel mixer into my recorder and record my whole band?


The Tascam DP-02 can only record two tracks at a time.

You will have to mix "on-the-fly" and record the master out, or record each instrument seperately, and just record the drums as a stereo mix.

Still dont get it


Hi Mark.

Siorry, but because of a fault with the system I am not able to reach you on the other thread.

Normalizing tracks means leveling volume settings for a group of tracks or samples to mix or combine them together without troubles like the ones you got.

to normalise tracks you can use the function built in on the Korg studio, see normalize in the software help.

When operating on MIDIs also remember that MIDIs are recorded on different channel (example drums, guitar bass guitar).eg:bTd Aerosmith MIDI archive
When you use them on a sequencer, and you operate on the volume, ensure

get straight into protools. it is worth learning in the long run, and most studios operate on it also. you can take you tracks into a studio then to work them up more. It is great software for editing audio and so on and sounds great. there are heaps of quick start guides on line to use it also. check here. If you are serious about your tunes... then just get into it and learn Pro Tools. It worthwhile

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".
