Re: Total Neophyte Needs Help Getting Started Recording my Tracks for an Audiobook

just wanted to say that we had our test recording session and it all worked easily and readily! I had my headphones plugged directly into the mic and could hear myself without delay.

Re: Total Neophyte Needs Help Getting Started Recording my Tracks for an Audiobook

Hey, I found the original cable that came with my headphones and I can now plug them into my mic and hear myself recording in real time directly, no lag. So I can record and hear myself.

Re: Total Neophyte Needs Help Getting Started Recording my Tracks for an Audiobook

I bought a mini-mini cable to go between my headset and the mic as a possible solution to the delay I was experiencing. Now I can't get back to even recording at all.

Re: Total Neophyte Needs Help Getting Started Recording my Tracks for an Audiobook

Yes, a bit too much information! Your input is appreciated but overwhelming. And hard to me to parse through. At this moment, before I start purchasing new equipment, I'd like to see if it's possible for me to make the equipment I currently have work before I start purchasing more for this important...

(though I was a talk show host and audio producer 35 years ago, when we still cut tape with razor blades--nothing since then). I'm recording an audiobook for a memoir I have c...
