Cool Edit pro soundcard problem

Posted on

Member Since: May 01, 2007

I have used CEP for years and realise it is dated but i love the system. Ihave always used the on board soundcard realtek but recently this failed. I have installed a soundblaster and now have a drift problem. The system has an inbuilt drift correction which applies itself immediately I confirm the track or stop recording. This means I can no longer overdub or correct parts of the track. According to the cep blurb this is with all soundblaster cards. Can anyone suggest an internal or external card that will do the job. It appears that all soundblaster based cards do not use the same clock for recording and playback. Can someone help please.

When I was using CEP, I had the stock SoundMAX and it worked fine. Not the greatest card though. A little noisy.

get a decent card www.homerecordingconnecti...oduct=MDOAP2496 is relatively inexpensive for the quality of audio it produces and the performance it has.

SoundDisasters just ain't made for recording...regardless of what the Creative Labs marketing machine tries to tell you.

thx guys will try that. I agree with the soundblaster finish, its vocally weak and needs beefing out everytime to make it sound reasonable.

thx again

Under your options, under multitrack is a checkbox for "automatically correct drift". Might want to make sure that is checked as it dynamically determines latency and corrects it afterwards. I don't know why the realtek would have less minues the fact that it is onboard.
