maybe someone can help.
I'm in a basement band and recently we've hooked up a TASCAM M164-UF as a mixer to front end a PA system (Fender Passport) as well as use it to drive channels into CUBASE LE 4 on a Windows Laptop.
after much work, proper cabling, gain setting, etc. we finally have the mixer set up where we have very good control through the PA system and we've all but eliminated hisses, pops, feedback, rumble, etc. and are very happy.
we do have a problem in trying to record however... here is our set up:
channels 1-4: MICs 1-4 via XLR
channel 5: Electric Guitar via balanced 1/4" cable
channel 6: Accoustic Guitar via balanced 1/4" cable (it's pre-amped)
channel 7: Bass Guitar via balanced 1/4" cable (using an amp-simulator)
channel 8: Drums coming from separate mixer that the drum MICS are feeding into
when we record we get GREAT sound from channels 1-6 and almost nothing, basically NOTHING from channels 7 and up...
