Recording with XLR to computer...one last question

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by Damani311, Dec 7, 2007.

  1. I've got it all plugged in, and the line in and mic inputs are working now....but I've still got no sound. After plugging everything in:

    Bass to amp, amp to computer line in via XLR...

    And starting a program like Cool Edit or Acid pro....what else needs to be done until I can just click "record" and play and it will pick it up..because right now it's not picking anything up....

    ok with Acid Pro and my M-Audio box on my PC...all I had to do was go to preferences and set it up there, quite easy actually.

    On my mac with my firestudio and Logic/garage band, I actually have to tell the software program what channels I'm using, I can't simply just plug in and play.

    Give us the details.
     
  3. Turns out my line in and mic in are permanently muted in the sound/volume/recording devices/levels box.......when i click "unmute" the "apply" button doesn't highlight for some reason, therefore insuring that I can't save the changes and it always reverts to muted when I close the window.......I wonder how I'm going to fix that :/

    What type of sound card/cards are you using. Is Windows still handling sound management?
