Playback re-recording

    Hey guys, Having a problem on Win7 with playback re-recording. Here's the layout

    1) Track one records just fine, no problems there
    2) Track two will re-record what track one is playing, so I'll have 2 part ones and barely any part 2 in the final

    There are 12 different inputs on this computer for recording and more for playback, I don't know which is which and some help would be great.

    We're going to need to know what audio interface hardware and recording software you have and how you are monitoring things.

    It sounds like you are mixing the first part of the recording with the second part on the second track. That's not how it's supposed to work. When you record the second part it should be completely separate from the first track, not mixed together into one audio file. Most audio interfaces (that have 12 inputs) come with software to let you listen to the tracks you have recorded along with what you are recording next.

    My guess is you're using the standard soundcard that came with your comp and you are recording "what you hear" or "Stereo out" from Window's mixer panel. Every time you press record, the first recording will get recorded again and will get louder and louder as you go along.

    Nope, I am (was) using an X-fi go. I'm just using a new dedicated soundcard now, the usb latency is too obnoxious. Thanks anyways

    Please tell us exactly what hardware you're using to get your sound into the computer. "New dedicated soundcard" tell us nothing useful except that you are probably using hardware not designed for music production. A proper audio interface designed for music production will make the whole process easier once you learn it.

    His understanding doesn't go beyond the $15 the sound card in his computer cost.

    Which is all fine and good if he can just admit to it, post some details and get on with progressing towards a better recording. But, not info given means no info received.
