Im using Cubase 5 with a tascam 1800 usb recording track. I have two microphones, one condencer and one dynamic, and a guitar line into the instrument section. Now, when I record, I play guitar live and sing- and cubase shows the audio wave lines going across the screen — everythings fine for all three.
Now, when I play it back, I have audio coming through on two of the three inputs (in this case, I have the dynamic working with the guitar), but, no condencer. No buttons muted, all the vct connections and all that are fine - i even went through and just tried to run it through the computer speakers and it still plays only two.
Now, if I wasn’t careful, I’d think I had a bum microphone - however, I recorded about 15 different songs, and it randomly switches what two it plays back from song to song. Furthermore, I have zero control over which two actually work- its like the program decides as its opening up the file, and thats that- cant do anything about it.
(Side note- when recording, id do a song, stop recording, save it, delete everything, and record again, same levels and connections and everything - so, if it was a normal malfunction, why wouldn’t it malfunction across the board and fail consistantly rather than this random playback thing - and the mics are both fine as well as the guitar - all the audios there for all three - just get two at a time for whatever reason - anyone know a fix? Be a total genius or mad scientist or something [pps - it has nothing to do with those little monitor buttons, etc - tried every combo - solo’ed the one not playing back, and all it does is clips - itll just randomly spike every 10 - 30 seconds, and thats when the little bar will go up (green in color?) but then the rest of the time, the audio rolls right by without a sound])
I hope thats descriptive enough - All the outputs are runnin to the same mono - just random clips and zero other sound.
Any brilliant thinkers out there?
