Same here, but it wasn't the same track that I get now. It appears hardware related. You may want to just grab another mic that will go in through the "mic" input of the sound card just to try something different. The quality might not be there if it is a cheap mic, but if the noise goes away, you h...

Can you post us a sample somewhere to listen to? (Hard to give suggestions without it.)

Mixing vs. mastering... Sorry, I mis-understood. I fine line to some, but hugely different for others if they are wanting individual track levels/effects decided and placed in the mix. I think you may find this problem with almost any software as each engineer/studio will have their favorites. There...

Re: re

It looks like I'm stuck with you for mixing... You make this sound very negative. I have done live sound on tour on the road, mixed in the studio and colaborated as an engineer on quite a few projects. I have found Eric to have a very good ear, good skills, very open to all genres and of course at ...

Eric and I have agreed to disagree on this from earlier discussions. The Nady Starpower mics (also available at Musicians Friend) offer a huge bang for the buck. Even the Starpower 1 is a great improvement over a regular PC microphone as it has a metal body and does a pretty fair job. It all depends...

Macs can run Windows emulation. Anybody out there have any experience running Mixcraft through a Windows emulator on a Mac? Now that Macs are available with Intel processors, there is probably a better chance with those to run Mixcraft through emulation.

(Just a thought.)

You may also want to try and identify the source of the hiss and work from that end to eliminate it. There shouldn't be any hiss present from Mixcraft and your computer. What equipment are you using that is creating the hiss?

Nicely done Eric. How many tracks were recorded at once? All mic'd or any line-ins?

Actually, a DI box would be too much in this case. The 'emulated line out' on the Marshall is fully pre-amped source by itself which is fed into another pre-amp (the mixer).

My recording levels, both analog and digital, are amost always bouncing into the yellow and frequently, but briefly into the red. Add a touch of compression on the master track and you should get very near to commercial levels. If you don't, all equipment is different. Continue to push your master r...

Hey Eric-

He says he is using the line-in not the mic input. He is also using a preamped source so I didn't think that the boost would be needed. I also didn't think boost applied to line-in as well as mic input..

Hmmm-

I would say you may have an output issue. If you can drive Mixcraft's input monitors into the red, then your input is good. Does the recorded track monitor show plenty of amplitude, meaning the wave form spikes are pronounced and fill a good deal of the track display like this- http://www.acoustica....

I have a Marshall DFX30 and use the emulated line out with great results. I do use main out on my Behringer, but tape out should provide the same results. If everything is maxed out and it is still that quiet, it appears you are experiencing cross-talk between channels. You say "touch the red"? Is t...

You didn't say what the problem is. Is the recorded sound distrorted or not enough sound to record (meaning too quiet)? You have all the right equipment to do some nice recording. You shouldn't have to drive the Behringer so hard. Just a light or two should do. Tape out on it will work well. At this...

Can you post something for us to hear somewhere? Can't really offer advice without knowing if it is a compression, EQ, over-modulated, etc. problem.
