Distorted Sound When Monitoring

yes it does…you can see what I called the green cable from the tape recorder to the dongle

  1. If the level is too high for recording, the signal coming from the tape unit is too high. Is there a volume control on the tape unit. On the PC side, use the computer’s volume control. Audacity is not involved here.

  2. Try Transport > Rescan Audio Devices

  3. Yes.

The volume control on the tape recorder makes no difference so I a going to wait until I get the correct RCA leads then try the Transport>Rescan Audio Devices. In the mean time I have reconnected the original dongle and get the same muffled sound but in stereo, I also get an Error code 9997 Invalid Sample Rate which I will sort out when I get the leads.

Thank you for your help.

I have all the RCA connections in place but the volume is far too loud, but perfect, and using the volume control on the tape recorder makes no difference. Using Transport>Rescan Audio Devices results in nothing being shown.

Good. If you have a UFO202, be sure that the switch is in the LINE position NOT PHONO. After you record, you can always use Effect > Amplify to decrease the volume. If you think the you are still getting overmodulation between the tape unit and the Behringer, a change in hardware may be in order, but I don’t have any recommendations to share. Perhaps someone else does.

No the sound is perfect and in stereo, the problem is that is is very loud and no matter what I try I cannot alter it. When I try monitoring the sound through Audacity nothing shows on the meter…in fact it seems to be bypassing Audacity somehow.

I am going to have to step away from this discussion. Others will have input. Good luck.

Thank you for your help, I’m sure I am not too far away from a solution.
