just to clear any confuions or further question heres my setup for everthing in order till it hits my sound card /Peavey B-90 /Morley bass and DOD Grunge ditortion* /Laney BC-120 /from head phone jack into a behringer ultra voice pro(im using not for mic's but as a sort of di box) /then out to a ess audio drive(soon to be sb live) i use Cakewalk guitar tracks to do the multi tracking then sonar to do fine tweaking *(sometimes i use a wah and distortion if i record me on the guitar to or when im screwin around with new sounds on the bass) anyays now that that thats out of the way i am only able to record one track then when i tryto play a new track while playing back the old one i get static and my noise meter jumps and hisses. so it is very hard to make a group recording one track at a time when i cant even record more than one track. Second of all, sorry for being so long winded, the one track i get to record is barely a whisper and sounds like i did it in a stereo's tape deck. and i can get it any louder or my wave meter shows above the red level. what do i have to change to stop the hissing so i can make full recordings of my band and how do it make my stuff cd or close to, quality. thanks for any help you can offer.
