Recording Problems #2

Thanks for your input! Truth is, the noise is not feedback, it's just a constant and steady hum as soon as a I plug the cable into the computer from the mixer, whether I'm producing any sound at the time or not. How to get rid of this?
Thanks!

: Thanks!

just a thought but maybe it's mains related, try killing 50HZ if you are in the UK, or 60HZ if you are in the US.

Placement and cabling...

I suspect you are using an RCA (phono ) to RCA lead to connect from the mixer to the soundcard. There are many potential problems with this. One, the RCA type lead is not balanced so it is very open to picking up electrical and RF noise. You computers soundcard may be cheap and cheerful and good at picking up the Mains frequency.

Check that the mixer is properly earthed as this may make a difference. make sure you have the best RCA lead and connectors you can get on your budget and make sure that it is as short as you can get away with. Keep the lead away from plugs and sockets and as much of your electrical equipment as you can. This is a common problem with unsheilded cables and power supplies (computer ones too) and can be rectified with a little fiddling or at worst, a new audio card. The mixer maybe to blame though so try routing a signal with the same lead from your domestic amplifiers tape out and see if you get the same problem..

Good luck

Re:

The truth is, the input of the average soundcard is built for low impedance signals and unless you use a kind of cabinet speaker simulator (or a pro soundcard) you get hum (and/or a buzzing noise on the mid frequencies) when recording acoustic or electric guitars.
Proper mixer settings & a noisegate would help momentarily, but a pro soundcard is recommended...

bit-o-help with fruity 3....???

hi.....i just have to find out what the hell some of the things do on fruity 3...like under humanize presets...grooves and level come up...dont ask me what they do im new to this program.....and what is with plugin database effects....actually...is there somewhere i can go to find out what all this stuff is and how to use it...manual=japanese...also whats the best way to use "shapes" in a song ...hope i dont waste your time....seeya

Re: bit-o-help with fruity 3....???

Humanize presets are applied to a channel in fruity to sort of change timing for each beat, and do some other stuff that I never bother with. there should be a button next to the button that brings down the piano thing for each beat. click on it for a channel that you applied a humanize preset to. scroll through the different things there. you'll see that some of the settings have been edited. that's what the humanize did. the help file has a lot of info in it. it's actually a surprisingly helpful help file. (hit F1 for it)

gROOVING:

Grooves are quantising and rhythmic timing adjustments that non-destructively shift your beats away from straight 1 2 3 4. Like shuffling, but with more control.

Re: bit-o-help with fruity 3....???

Use shapes for your TS-404 (instead of one of the wave shapes already there, you can click on the '?' button and load up a different shape to get a different sound. I don't know what 'grooves' are, but level sounds like either volume level or frequency levels... don't bother with humanizing, it doesn't really do much... anyway, you should really experiment to find out for yourself... I did.

cubase vst 5 crack

[The body of this post has been lost]

I don't understand...

...why people think this is a "crack and serial number" forum... I just don't see why people come "here" for these things. Apart from the fact that it has a flashing blue link about warez that can't really be missed when the page loads, people still think this is the place to be..

I think people should repect forum requests and stop ignoring them in favour of abuse for their own gain. To leave your email address too is unbelievably stupid... nuff said...

Re: I don't understand...

I have a crack, and it's on my bum.

hey Steve R: have you visited my website yet? I updated it last week for LoopaZoid...

Problems with Easy CD Creator

What am I doing wrong? Every time I try to use easy cd creator to copy audio files from another cd, it does not list them in the window, so there is nothing for me to drag into the copy window!! PLEASE HELP!!

hi, you might not be clicking on the folder once you drag it into the window to show files inside?

Re: Problems with Easy CD Creator

If you're sure the display shows the right CD-Rom (with the audio files) letter, but it doesn't show any audio try uninstalling & reinstalling it. If you have a SCSI CD-Rom or CD-R get the Adaptec ASPI drivers from Adaptec's Site.

Streaming audio

I would like to know how to make WMA's that are 20K/bits or less. That way i could put streaming audio on my page.

Live recording conversion

I am looking for software that will enable me to convert analog tape recordings of live performances into CD's. Has someone out there done this? If so, please share your experience with me.
Thanks

Re: Live recording conversion

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this on the Mac? Any software suggestions appreciated.

Re:

Connect tape player with line in of pc's soundcard.
Use windows recorder, cool edit 2000, or wavelab (after enabling line in record) to record the tapes into wav files.
Use a CD burner to make the CDs.
See Download page for needed programs.

The PC-DAW Book

If you're having trouble getting your DAW tweaked right for high track count, check out this e-book at www.studiogem.com
I just downloaded a copy today and it is awesome!! I already tried a few things I learned from this book and they worked like a charm!!

MIDI file formats

I have a Yamaha PSR-620 that will play MIDI files off a disk if they are "file format 0." I also have Music Time Deluxe, but any original MIDI files I save to disk just won't play on my keyboard. How can I specify or check whether they are "file format 0?"

Easy CD Creator 4.02c. Annoying message help please

I keep getting this message:
Easy CD Creator initialization has failed: could not load ACMWrapper.

How do I fix this? I would have asked Adaptec but I don't have a serial # or anything.
The cd I have came with my CDRW.

This worked for me

From <a href="http://www.micro-solutions.com/tech_support/docs/2619.html">http://www.micro-solutions.com/tech_support/docs/2619.html</a>:

1. Run the ENGINST.EXE program, provided on the backpack cd-rewriter SETUP CD in the following folder:

\DISK1\Ecdc\ECDCENG\Enginst

After running the ENGINST.EXE program, restart the computer. Easy CD Creator should then launch without the above error message.

2. If the error message persists, run the ASPIINST.EXE program found on the backpack cd-rewriter SETUP CD in the \UTILITY or \ASPI folder. Restart the computer after that program completes.

3. Adaptec (now Roxio) provides information in the Knowledgebase of their website (www.roxio.com, Article Number 990419-0000008) that this error should be resolved by:

- Restarting the computer

- Reinstalling the Easy CD Creator software a second time, over the top of the previous installation.

- If the error persists, then uninstall Easy CD Creator completely and re-install Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 from the Easy CD Creator Installation CD. The IE 5 installer (filename: IE5SETUP.EXE) can be found in the "\Disk1\Ecdc\IE5\0009" folder. After the installation of IE 5 is complete, then reboot and reinstall Easy CD Creator.

4. For WinNT4 installations: If the above solutions do not resolve the problem, open the DEVICES utility within the WinNT4 Control Panel. Change the CDR4VSD Startup type from "Boot" to "System."

If the message specifically includes: "Could not load ACMWRAPPER"

Access the folder: C:\Program Files\Adaptec\Shared\ECDC Engine

Within this folder there is a file called ACMWRAPPERSERVER.DLL

If that file does not appear you will need to change your file "View" in Windows Explorer:
Within Explorer, choose: Tools - Folder Options - View - select "show hidden files and folders" and make sure "hide file extensions for known file types" is unchecked.

Rename the ACMWRAPPERSERVER.DLL file to ACMWRAPPERSERVER.MSI

After renaming that file, run the "Adaptec Engine Install" program (ENGINST.EXE). This can be found on the Backpack SETUP CD, typically within Utility folder. Reboot after running the Adaptec Engine Install program.

easy cd creator 4.02c. message about lisence requirment

why does easy cd creator want me to have a lisence to play my own music. before I got this cd easy cd creator, I have no problem. what should I do.

Re: Easy CD Creator 4.02c. Annoying message help please

: How do I fix this? I would have asked Adaptec but I don't have a serial # or anything.
: The cd I have came with my CDRW.

Had the same problem for a few days...
The problem was a file that has been renamed.

Rename the file
- C:\Program files\Adaptec\Shared\ECDC Engine\ACMWRA~1.DLL

to:
- C:\Program files\Adaptec\Shared\ECDC Engine\acmwrapperserver.dll

Oh thank you so much, I had the same problem and I have written emails and called Adaptec, Roxio and even Iomega...this worked perfectly and I can't thank you enough!

I have the same problem. But I check to see that I have the file "C:\Program files\Adaptec\Shared\ECDC Engine\acmwrapperserver.dll"

Then what to do now?
Thanks!

If...

....you don't have the serial number but got the program when you bought the CDRW then you should be able to contact adaptec and explain this to them. They are hardly going to argue if you show them the receipt for the CDRW which they would know had their program bundled. Go back and ask them again.

In the mean time, you could try installing it again. Maybe there is a corrupt file that is causing the problem or you have changed something whilst fiddling around. Uninstall it first though...

Good luck.

SEE MICRO SOLUTIONS ,DOCUMENT #2619

Re: Easy CD Creator 4.02c help

The issue is MS Media Player was installed over EZ CD Creator (You could also have upgraded Operating Systems).

To resolve, uninstall EZ CD Creator and DirectCD via Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs. AFTER they are BOTH uninstalled via Control Panel (Don't just delete the files!!!), find the folder called c:\Program Files\Adaptec and delete the entire folder. Reboot and then reinstall the EZ CD Creator and DirectCD.

recording problems

Hey all!
I'm trying to record vocal/acoustic guitar onto the computer but I'm getting a lot of feedback when I go through my power mixer tape out jack to the computer mic jack. Any suggestions? I'm downloading CoolPro to record with, is that adequate?
Thanks a bunch!
Craig

Re: recording problems

The use of headphones is recommended.

Re: recording problems

The usual cause of feedback is that the microphone is too near the speakers and is picking up the
sound you're trying to record. Either move the microphone further away or turn off any speakers
you're using to listen with.

Andy

Re: recording problems

I meant CoolEdit2000, not CoolPro...sorry about that!
