My set up is a Dell Inspiron E1505 Duo Core, that is connected to Behringer Eurorack UBB1002 mixer with an adapter cable that has two 1/4" plugs that run together to make a single stereo 1/4' plug that i attatch another addapter to make it fit the 1/8" jack on the side of my laptop. All other cables are Livewire cables paired with MXL 990 & 991 Condenser Mic's & an SigmaTel audio driver. I am using Audacity and Sony Acid 6.0. My problem is that evertime i begin to record it'll record with good quality for about 5-10 seconds then the sound will just drop to either a very low volume, or no sound will be recorded at all. I know using a laptop is probably not the greatest platform to record on but it is all i have. Soooo, does anyone know why it does this? and how do i fix it?
