Line in Recording

Posted on

Member Since: Jan 25, 2005

I have a question that Iím sure has been posted before but I can't find it. I'm using Adobe Audition 1.5 and Iím trying to record from my mixer through the line in port NOT the MIC port. But I can't find the settings in Audition to record from the Line in jack. It is still trying to rec. from the mic. Any help would be great.

What options does Audition give you to choose from, what driver types does Audition allow and what kind of sound card is it?

I'm using a A-Open Cobra AW-850 but I think is uses C-media Drivers because that is what it is referred to in the software. I don't know that you mean about the options that Audition gives me.

Oh, OK, so you are using a typical soundblaster-knock off type card, alright.

Your option may be limited. When I am asking about option, while I am not familiar with Audition (tho many here are perhaps they can help better than me) I assume there is a "properties" or "configuration" type dialog box somewhere that shows you what ins and outs you have available in the application.

It appears that this card only has old-school MME drivers, not even the newer WDM much less ASIO, so the card won't perform that will and will likely have very high latency (read the glossary if those terms are foreign to you).

What card can you suggest for stereo recording that is farley inexpensive but also compatible with Audition.

any I would suggest start at about $99...and that is very inexpensive by "recording card" standards.

I have used thisone myself and it's very good...many here use it.

shoot for a two channel USB with two pres....i'm not a fan of USB cards, but for your application, it's practical.

I also record you fill out your gear profile so when we talk to you we know what you have and what you don't.

I don't know why a USB would be any more practical than a PCI card in this case, unless it's because of the built in pres, then, yes, preamps would be useful, which you can also get by purchasing a $70 mixer...

You can probably record as you are right now, but you need to configure your sound card properly to use the line in jack and not the mic jack. Go to properties, and choose recording. Select line in, instead of mic in. I don't think you will need to do anything in Audition.

Of course getting a new sound card is always gravy, but for now you can prolly get away with using what you got.

"you need to configure your sound card properly to use the line in jack and not the mic jack. Go to properties, and choose recording. Select line in, instead of mic in." Do you mean the Windows properties?

um, if you're using a sb live type card, there's probably a little speaker icon in your systems tray (bottom right hand corner). Double click that. Under options, there should be a properties choice. Click that. Then select recording, and make sure you have all the little check boxes selected underneath that. Hit ok. Select Line and you should be good to go.

Hay It works Thanks and I might add for an SB knock off it sounds perfect and it only cost me $12 on NewEgg I was testing it with Pink Floyd' money for the intro because it switches back and forth between right and left and let me tell you it is a perfect copy. But any way thanks a lot.
