OK, I’ve had an ongoing thread regards the input monitoring not being loud enough on the headphones when singing.
Could someone with an MR816 please, if they have a minute, try this…it’ll only take a couple of minutes and I’d so appreciate it.
Import a regular mastered stereo mix of a song, typically something that has been mastered nicely to around 0db at the loud bits.
Create a new mono audio track and set the input trim on the MR816, to 12 o’clock position. (without any MR816 reverb or compression). Just ensure the cubase input level is at 0db also
Set the headphones level on the MR816 to around 7 o’ clock position (or thereabouts whereby you could acceptably record vocals to it).
Now using any decent phantom powered mic, try and record some vocals along with the track, any vocals, just project normally!
Are your findings such that you cannot hear enough mic signal in the cans? I bet that is the case?
And to get around this, do you find yourself;
a) graphically reducing the stereo track’s waveform drastically and
b) having to increase the MR816 headphones level to maximum, just in order to hear youself singing in the cans??
That is exactly what I have been forced to do when recording vocals. From what I remember, before upgrading my PC, I was on Windows XP and this was never an issue. Also I have tried another audio interface and three other mics - to just find the same problem exists. So it’s not my hardware or mics, possibly cubase?
I’m totally scratching my head at this. You can see my frustration, Ive recorded loads of tracks, then about to record the vocal, and now I must turn down all the audio tracks to barely any waveform and crack the MR816 headphones up to max just to hear myself in the cans! Crazy!
Please could someone do that little example above and report back, noting carefully the stages 1-4 so as to replicate my problem, or not.
Thanks so much, I’d really appreciate help with this.
