cool edit pro recording problem

Posted on

Member Since: Apr 25, 2004

my problem is that I get crackling sounds on sustained notes whenever I'm recording in cool edit pro 2. The frustrating thing is that I don't get the problem when I record in sound forge 6. I would just record in sound forge, but I need to be able to play a file and record at the same time. I'm running Win XP. I can't think that it would necessarily be a hardware problem because it seems like it would do the same thing anytime I recorded on any program. If anyone has had the same experience or knows what to do, please let me know. Thanks.

welcome to hrc man!

have you tried adjusting the buffer settings in cool edit? having too small of a buffer can cause what youre talking about

not used cool edit for ages, so i cant be much more help to be honest, but i you can find anything to do with buffers, then thats what ya wanna have a play with, i reckon

and again, welcome!

Yes, from what (little) I remember of Cooledit buffers can cause lotsa problems.

The thing that you use to mess with them is a bugger too. :)

When you are recording, check to see if the blue line at the bottom of the screen that measures processor usage is all the way to the right of the screen. If it is, you probably will want to lock any effects on the backing tracks and/or change the latency buffer.

Try making sure you have updated windows as well. I heard that this caused some problems. I know htey recommended to do this in the manuals. I will look in my cool edit tips book tonight and get back to you tomorrow if I can find anything.
