Re: Having trouble with Pyle 8-channel mixer for podcasting

I think it would be easier to go back to my 2-channel Behringer mixer. Bringing you straight into my rule of: "If you have something working, hold onto it with white knuckles." Count the number of forum posters who did machine, OS, or software "upgrades" and their podcast or sho...

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

There's a performance hint. Always produce a lead-in before the actual song.

In real life, this is the drummer counting everybody down to a song. In this case, the backing track is counting you in.

Tick Tick Tick Tick Music.

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

So the headphones coming out of my Roland module against the microphone on my Mac? No. If you're drumming, then that's not going to work because there is no performance microphone. That's harder. In all cases, after you perform an overdub, you can play both the backing track and the performance and...

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

Post back if you miss anything. I expect you to be able to do "Perfect Overdubbing" where you hear a theatrical mix of live performance and backing track in your headphones. Without digging in the Roland instructions, the knobs suggest this. Big gushy headphones are good for performances l...

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

I took a lot of shortcuts in there. Stop me anywhere if you get lost.

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

That's more better. USB printer cable. How old is this thing?

Do you have the adapter from USB-B to Mac Thunderbolt? Did you find an actual cable which will do that?

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

I'm just now paying attention to the interface. Where is the digital connection to the computer? This doesn't work with an analog interface.

Audacity can't do production in MIDI.

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

There's a slightly less common cause of error. If you used one of the pre-baked Audacity click tracks, It's possible to match up the wrong click. Instead of matching up Click One with Click One, you match up Click One with Click Four, which sounds the same, but is a whole second off. That will give ...

Re: Latency Test........Help!!!

Nothing goes into the headphone jack of your Mac. That connection is always going to be "one computer late." Plug your headphones into your interface. Set Recording latency by playing a click or backing track to your interface and jam the headphones against your microphone. Screen Shot 202...

Re: Constant unwanted noise while recording with lavalier mic in laptop

Are you in a 50Hz power area such as England or continental Europe? Your sample has a very serious 50Hz hum tone. That's a little too low in pitch to be easily audible, but it sticks out immediately on the Audacity analysis tools. The battery of my laptop does not work properly so it always runs on ...
