  • Help with TD15K and recording 1/8 cable

    I have my TD15K hooked up to my PC using a 1/8 headphone cable and a Soundblaster Z soundcard.

    I use Audacity to record but the sound always comes out muffled.

    I lowered the recording volume and headphone volume on the Roland module so nothing spiked but everything comes out muffled and faint.

    Any ideas?

    How do you have your outputs configured in the Module???? Also how is it plugged in to the digital input? or the Mic input? on the Soundcard???

      TD-15K module > 1/8 cable > Line in (Soundblaster microphone)
      Output in Audacity is Microphone (Sounblaster)
      Project Rate: 44100, Stereo, 32-bit float

      Here is an audio clip of what's being recorded.

        Have you checked the record parameters in Windows? how is the volume set for the recording device in sound card properties etc

            Have you tried connecting the TD15 to your pc with a usb/computer cable? You'll need to load the drivers from roland first. Audacity will recognize the TD15. Then just select td15 in audacitys input and output.

              I haven't but I had this working before without any problems.

              Can't see what's different.

                Guys...gotta post these in the technical or suggestion threads, there are people actually in those threads looking to help. The lounge continues to be a goof off place and NOT for tech help.

                Good luck!!

                  kaiju, I have a td15. Initially I tried recording using Audacity with the 1/8 cable. It was always below average, no matter how I adjusted stuff. I finally connected it via USB, after downloading the Roland driver, and now its excellent and super easy.

                      No, not that one. This one. It's about $3 at any office supply store.

                          Great, the USB cable works! Thanks guys.

                          One question, when I latency correction (used a click track to test it was 166ms out), I still feel there is latency when monitoring my drums with my PC speakers.

                          Would it be best to just get an amplifier?

                            In your sound settings(or maybe just need to do it in audacity), you want to set your input and output device to the TD15. The TD15 will be your soundcard. That should get rid of the latency. I've never tried it with my pc speakers, but it should work the same as the way I do it. I use headphones or a powered speaker run thru a mixer.

                              If you make the TD15 the output, then how will I be able to moniitor the device using my PC speakers?

                              I had a look around in Audacity and no option to make the TD15 the output anyway and I also checked my sound settings in Windows and there is no TD15 device available either.

                              Thanks for the response.
