Discussion in 'Recording Vocals' started by jackalhead, Jan 4, 2009.
You haven't mentioned the microphone itself, the interface, the preamp, etc. Are you using an external mic, and if so....are you routing it into the (unbalanced?) input of the audio card?
I have that very same problem!
Are you using Headphones to listen to the music when you're recording vocals or do you just have the music cranked in the room speakers?
In other words is the MIC picking up the music from the speakers?
POSSIBLE PROBLEM #2
On the existing music tracks, are there any Aux sends or outputs that are incorrectly being sent to the vocal track that you're recording on?
In other words, Is all the routing correct?
POSSIBLE TESTING PROCEDURE.
Are you able to mute or lower the volume of just the music tracks. (not the vocal track) and record the mic?
Do this by just singing "la la la la". Or be a rockstar and go "TesTING 1,2, Testing".
If this produces a positive result, then it appears that the problem is one of the 2 I outlined above.
hope this helps.
It's like white collar crime with an off the rack shirt
A dress code is like the Apartheid in more ways than one. I cannot afford a tailored shirt and suit or even pants. I insist on cotton and not wool or plastic because of medical reasons. My neurosis mainly. I'm also rather large, not particularly fat but I look like a retard in anything not tailor made... This is an instant prejudice against me, through this I am able to empathise with people who are discriminated against racially.
Don't let the uniform fool you, white collar crime kills the masses.
If my T-shirt slacks and boots offends you, you're a bastard.
If you purposely use stereo types to your advantage, wear the white shirt and the blue suit and perform things according to the guidelines of manners and etiquette no matter your personal feelings, you are a bastard. And not literally, your parents may have been married, I mean colloquially.
When someone is able to act in a "normal" way and look "normal" just by following some simple rules, if they use this to their advantage in anything tangible, (intangible things are things like love and good food, tangible things are money) you are a bastard. People who look like sharks and act like humans are the worst.
It's not number one. I unplugged the mic from the PC and it is still picking up sounds from my computer.
I don't believe it is number two. No matter what I play, while recording, even if I am streaming something online, it records to the recording file.
Yes, if I turn down all the volume on my computer and then record my voice, it only picks up my voice. However, I need to hear the music I recorded while recording the vocals to get everything nice and neat on time. Ha It's so confusing.
It basically seems like my computer is just recording whatever is coming out of my speakers.
