Recording Software


Hi, i currently use a 7-mic setup via a BEHRINGER 2442FX mixer.

I use SONY ACID 6.0 for the recording software and find it aload of garbage. There is always a delay between when i click record and when it actually records.

Can anyone recommend any other good software for recording?

THANKS

Re: Recording Software


I use AUDACITY,It's a free download recording program from BEHRINGER. I like it alot. I've recorded my bands live practices and my own solo stuff with it.Before you go and get it ,are you listening to your playback while you record? That will cause a delay as well.listen through the board and not your pc.Hope this helps

Re: Recording Software


What I mean is to listen throu the board with headphones.As the signal passes through the board and into your pc it creates Latency. I've found when recording a single track or multi- tracks its best to leave the volume down on your pc and just run everything back to the board (into Headphones)until it is time to just listen to the tracks you've recorded.

TBH i dont think that will solve it. But i will give it a try.

The delay occurs between when i press the record button on SONY ACID 6 and when it actually starts recording. The line will move along the song but it wont record for a while after it.

I hope there is a fix for this.

Re: Recording Software


Check out this site pcmus.com.au they have a lot of info about optimizing your system to record smoothly.

It's also possible that your programk is just giving you a sec to before you start playing. You should be able to turn that off, or just give it a moment to get going.
