  • recording not working

    Hey, I'm using my td3 that I just got and audacity.
    I plugged in my (mono)output from the td3 to my mic input and all I get are little static noises everytime I hit my pads.

    I have a 1/4 to 1/4 guitar cable that I use plus a mini(1/8) adapter to plug into my PC.

    I'm not sure why I'm getting this. When I plug my guitar into the PC the same way I get great sound. Does it make a difference when using a mono or stereo-1/8 adapter???

    PLease help!

    Thanks!

    Not sure what kind of sound card you're referring to, but the mic input usually runs a little hotter than other inputs. If you sound card has one, use the line-in input rather than the mic.
    Also, how high is the module volume set to? Often the souncard can only handle so many dB input before it starts distorting. I have my module at 50%volume and I use the PC software's volume for the soundcard to adjust the levels.
    I use a 1/8" stereo adapter as well and haven't had any issues with it.

      Well, my sound card is the stock Gateway AC'97.
      It only has a mic in input, no line-in.

      I've tried using the (mono) output on the back as well as the headphone output, but I still don't get any sound on audacity or soundforge.

      I hope someone can help me out on this...

      Thanks

        Have you unchecked "Mute" for the microphone in Windows Volume Control?

          Make sure you are using the left/mono output of the module and not the right. Also check to make sure all the sounds in the module aren't somehow all panned to the right output. Do you get any drum sounds at all with just your PC volume up and no programs open?

            I figured it out, it was a faulty crappy 1/4 to mini(1/8) adapter...

              if you get more into recording look into audio interfaces, the EMU 0202 and 0404 are great for the money when in the USB area.
