Recording with Cubase SX

Posted on

Member Since: Mar 20, 2005

Hello all, Iím quite new to the forum but have a rather frustrating (and noobish) problem with Cubase SX.

Iím trying to lay one track down then record another separate track while listening to the playback of the first track.

My problem is that when I record the second track, the first track records along with the second track so I effectively have a background copy of my first track in my second track.

My ideal situation would be to have each and every track its own separate entity for maximum flexibility when adding effects and such.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

You have to disable the record button on the track you have finished recording. It is a red button on the individual track display. Also you must properly set the tracks that you want to monitor while you record your additional tracks. I would read the manual multiple times. That is how I learned the program. Good luck!

Also, you dont say what audio card you are using in your profile so I will just take a stab in the dark.

If you are using a stock type card or a soundblaster type card, you need to go into the windows sound preferances and uncheck the what you hear button. This as well will cause the app to record directly from the output of the sound card.

Also the other thought is if you are using a mixer of some sort and recording through the main outputs of the mixer. This will of course send the signal of what youare listening to right back to the inputs as well.

Thanks for the advice! It was in fact the "what you hear" option that was giving me problems....gotta love the simple solutions.

thanks again
