WINDOWS 7, Installed from .exe file
Hello, I’m using the Numark N4 with a HP Envy 14 Beats edition. I’m absolutely loving it, everything is working perfectly and im improving all the time with mixes and tricks etc.
When I hit record and play it back, the sound is pretty quiet, low quality, there’s a loud hum in the background especially during silences and there’s almost no bass at all.’
So farI’ve; changed the sample rate to 16 bit and 44.1 khz (which is what the 2 rca cable to usb input states it works at even though my laptop works at 64 bit…is that the right thing to do?); altered the input levels and record levels on all control interfaces (windows volume mixer, beats audio, recording devices, my mixer and audacity); switched between MME and windows direct sound; checked for updated drivers on all sound hardware: all to no avail.
The strange thing is, when i play an mp3 from windows media player, and change the audio input record device on audacity to the n4, the sound is perfect, but if i try recording from the n4 usb input/output with using serato it does not record anything.
Is the problem that the n4 inbuilt soundcard is not good enough? Would buying an external sound card work with the n4?
My system is a 6 gig RAM quad core i7 processor running at 2.2 Ghz, but im not sure what the soundcard is like though.
If you could help me get to a point where i can record my mixes in a good quality I would be incredibly grateful. I’ve been strugging with this problem for aleast three weeks now and i just cannot work it out.
