Problem With Delta 44 Soundcard
i got my delta running into a behringer mx602a mixer...and i cant figure out for the life of me how to get my headphones out of Mono mode when i'm recording
i unplug the connections from the mixer to outputs 1,2 and i plug in my headphones (via y cable) to 1 and 2 and i still can only hear on one side of my headphones..i cant even hear my mic for fucks sake...
( i unplug the connections because if not the program will record the vocals and the beat on the same track for some reason)
anyone have a problem like this or a solution??
What ? If you do not unplug delta out 1 & 2 it records the beat on the vocal track ?
Do you understand that this is because that out must be going back into the Delta ins in some sort of chain.
Plus you say you can hear only one side of the stereo feed in your headphones , but you can't hear the mic ? Are you panning your mic pre-tape ? that's whack .... Either you're panning your vocal track pre-tape or you're not enabling record mode or your mic's not on ,or you are recording the mic in stereo but you're reversing phase somewhere and your mono out is causing phase cancellation .
That sounds like a barely functioning studio man . I can't for the life of me understand how unplugging cables can affect what is being recorded ,unless those cables are wired in a loop .
My suggestion is to check the following ...
1. Make sure no loops are created in your cabling scheme .
2. Re-Install the newest delta drivers from their website
3. Go to the Delta Monitor mixer page and make sure all those routings are correct
4. Make sure your headphone jack is not a mono jack . IF it is , get a stereo one for 50 cents more.
i appreciate the attempt at help though man
nah ur not a dick, cause you're pretty much wrong
i know how to multitrack
if i use the headphone output on the mixer the beat and the vocals get pushed together on one track, thats why i run it through the delta instead
the Y cable is a female stereo so thats not hte problem
and the soundcard does have enough power to boost signals through its 'out' ports, it just doesnt play on both sides
Not to be a dick, but you obviously don't know how to multitrack if your tracks get recorded together. Work out why it records things on the same track, fix the problem and use the headphone output on the mixer instead of working around the problem all the time.
To anwer your question, the Y cable probably sums the signals to mono. Also, I doubt the sound card would have enough juice to power headphones to a decent volume - another reason for getting everything working properly.
oh nah dog i know how to record on multiple tracks, i've been recording for a while
but i just cant HEAR the beat on both sides of my headphones
you have to make sure you're in multitrack view. Then select the r on track one and record your track. then de-select the r and select the r on track 2. that's how you record onto mulptiple tracks. And make sure that you're recording in stereo and not recording left channel on track 1 and right channel on track 2. Hope this helps.
cool edit pro 2
what program are you recording with?
