Just got a new desktop computer today, how do I activate Mixcraft on it again?

It's been years since I activated Mixcraft on my original computer and I can't remember how. I just got a new desktop today and am hoping maybe it will take away from the static issues I have been getting when trying to record audio sources. It is actually my fathers computer that he built from the ...

Re: What does a direct in box do and how can it help static issues...

Hi, That helps narrow the problem down. If you use the soundcard in your computer as the playback device, do you get the static? Try narrowing it down further like that to figure out which component is causing the static. Are you on a laptop? Is the laptop on battery or is it plugged in? Etc. Greg ...

Does it have any effect at all? The static is exactly the same no matter what latency setting you use?

Greg
If I put the settings to low it causes clicking noises and such but no it doesn't really help the static issue no matter what latency setting I use.

Re: What does a direct in box do and how can it help static issues...

A DI box converts the signal from your guitar to a compatible signal for recording. Sometimes, if the static you are hearing is caused by incompatible signal impedence, the DI box can help. But since you state you are getting static also from microphone recording, I suspect the problem lies someher...

Re: Static problems, question about what to purchase to fix it...

I had a similar problem a few years ago and it turned out to be conflict with my video card causing frequent, momentary dropouts that sounded like static. Could you try a test recording via your onboard soundcard to make sure it's definitely the interface? Mind you, if you definitely want a new one...

What does a direct in box do and how can it help static issues...

I posted another thread about this and didn't get any answers. Anyways, I have static in my audio (vocal or guitar) recordings and I am trying to fix the issue. Someone a long time ago suggested a direct in box to me. I am wondering what a direct in box does exactly and how it might fix the issue? A...

Static problems, question about what to purchase to fix it...

Whenever I record any audio tracks, vocals or guitar, I have a static sound in my recordings I can't seems to get rid of. I know it's something to do with my setup, and with Christmas coming up I am going to ask for a couple things to purchase that would fix the issue. I have an audio interface that...

Re: White noise in audio recordings?

I have a white noise/static sound in the background whenever I try to record vocals or guitar. May be a silly question but how sure are you that the noise is actually being recorded (as opposed to you only hearing it upon playback)??? Also: how are your speakers connected??? Reason I'm asking the a...

Re: White noise in audio recordings?

+1 on the electrical thought, sounds like a ground issue. Try another electrical outlet and/or power strip or extension cord. A DI box is very handy to have not just for the ground so that could very well do it. M If I get a DI box will I still need to use my audio interface in my setup to record?

Re: White noise in audio recordings?

What is your electrical situation like? If you have bad wiring or grounding issues, that'll 100% show up when you're trying to record. Also, is the white noise constantly persistent? It doesn't change if you move around the room or touch anything while holding the guitar or microphone? You may cons...

White noise in audio recordings?

I have a white noise/static sound in the background whenever I try to record vocals or guitar. It is really bad and I can not make quality recordings with this issue. I am not sure where the white noise is coming from in my setup but I would sure love to find it. I know the problem isn't the microph...

Re: How do I send song files to another producer to collaborate?

He said he wants me to send the tracks to his email address. Do I have to use a file transfer system or for this or something?
