    That is, Read The Manual. How do you expect to learn anything if you don't do that? A lot of the people here, not including myself, actually do sound for a living. In other words, they just don't have time to hold your hand through the entire process of getting your rig working. You have the material in your hands. Read it. I still have all my manuals and I refer to them as necessary. It's a good habit to get into.

    I don't understand why people don't read their manuals. Life is so much easier when you do. I spend a lot of time helping people through their problems here, problems with gear I've never owned or even touched (as does Hueseph and many, many others), and one way I personally am able to help is by looking at their problem and searching manuals for possible causes.

    Maybe it's just my curious nature?

    Also, considering the fact that a ton of manuals are available online nowadays (for free, even), what possible excuse is there for not reading it? Even if the item is 'HOT', or legimately purchased without one, 9 times out of 10 you can find the manual via Google, etc...

    Not just the pros...even people like me who do this voluntary for Churches check the manual.

    "Oh...so that's how to work the effect processor..."

    That said, manuals dont replace an overabundance of logic in a fair few cases.

    Much of my education comes from simply reading technical manuals. What else are you supposed to do in the bathroom? Shower? Crap? Brush your teeth? I don't think so? Why do you think God created NAIR?

    Actually, I used to pick up the telephone and call, Ampex, MCI, Scully, 3M, Neumann to discuss their products and let them know where the typos were in the schematics! Geez! Drive me crazy why don't you? So, reading manuals can be misleading when the schematics are printed incorrectly as many of the Ampex, MCI, Scully & Neumann's were.

    So, how should I plug in this 36 input Neve console and what does that blue wire do?

    ok...so now that the whole manual buisness is out of the way...

    It sounds like you've got it hooked up and are able to record the vocals...even if you can't hear them...and now you are hearing lots of noise in the vocals.

    What audio software are you using to record with? Cubase was often included with that piece of hardware. In cubase each channel should have a little speaker icon. Click it to hear what you are recording.

    Getting past that, the next thing you need to to is to resolve the pops and clicks. If you search this forum, you'll find MANY messages describing several different common causes of this sort of problem. The most common cause is too small of a buffer size. If you don't know what that is...search here or in the manual that came with Cubase. It'll tell you exactly where to go to change the setting.
