I have been searching the net for like a week...and I have seen my problem posted by many others...but no-one can figure it out..maybe you can? Problem: When I try to record....it simply fades-in. I am using sonar...though it fades-in on my other program as well. I have tried fixing it though sonar by pushing "x". My sound card is a Ac97 C-media wave device. Yes I know its a cheap card...but keep in mind it JUST started doing this and I have been using this card for like 2 years.Also when I turn the mic volume op so I can hear it through my speakers while playing...it DOES NOT fade-in...its normal...but the volume meters on sonar indicate a fade-in...and when I record I can SEE the fade-in and then hear it on playback. It does it with the mic...and my guitars....any ideas?
