Re: Noise from USB mic rig

Who knew??? Gooogle, thats who. I was able to solve the problem by moving the mic to a different USB port. I hope this will help someone else.

cheers!

Re: Noise from USB mic rig

I will add, that I have been using a different Sennheiser headset mic with absolutely no issues. I was just trying to kick up the vocal quality with a better mic, also I just wanted to use some different mics, and select a "best choice".

Noise from USB mic rig

I recently tried using my Sennheiser 421 for recording onto a laptop, using the latest Adobe Audition. I purchased an xlr to usb cable on Amazon and hooked it up. Result, extremely low volume, so I ran the mic through a Groove Tubes The Brick and now I have plenty of audio but there is a gritty back...

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

By visual reference, I mean the segmented LED VU for each channel. I'm sure you know what I mean, just trying to be clear. Even when bumpping the red zone, I find the HD24 to be very forgiving....not clipped. But I never slam it.

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

Visual reference only. Since live recording is dependant on the FOH guy. If it sounds ok (not a distorted mess) In the room, then there is no problem. Occasionally is ask for some gain staging to get me out of the red on the kick and snare. Other nights I am the FOH....no issues. Great bands sound g...

Re: Alesis HD24 - Still a decent option?

I own two HD24 units. I have recorded literally thousands of hours on them without a single issue. I keep one in a 4-u SKB case & carry a bag of insert cables for recording in clubs directly from the house mixer in discreet multitrack (or at least as discreet as a night club performance gets). The o...

I have been using an Alesis HD24 hard disc recorder with great success since 2009. Its more than you are asking for with 24 tracks, but they can be had for little money these days. I recently bought a backup unit in excellent condition with an SKB 4U case for $150.00. I do location live recording ex...

High pass at 40hz or so, followed by really fast compression @ 4 to1 has worked for me in the past. You can also find the frequency of the click & notch a lot of it out.

I used to believe that paper in oil caps did not go bad. My Klipsch cornerhorns had these type caps & after 40 years, they were definately bad. As a result the speakers sounded harsh & spitty, very fatiguing to listen to. I did a re-cap of the crossovers & the cornerhorns are now singing sweetly. Yo...
