Monitoring Overdubs and Choice of Audio Interface

I am getting ready to buy my first audio interface. With no digital recording experience, I need some advice on monitoring overdubs. I had been looking at the Focusrite Clarett 2Pre Thunderbolt audio interface (connected to my HP Spectre x360 with Thunderbolt 3) because it has especially low latency in hopes that I would be able to monitor my live overdub tracks via the DAW.

Complete newbie trying to "master"...


I recently picked up a PreSonus 1818VSL and got back into the recording game. I haven't done anything with my stuff in over 10 years. I used to use SONAR and had fairly decent results. My recordings are pretty close to what things sound like live but whenever I mix something down, it always sounds thin and quiet when compared to an "actual" recording from a decent studio.

Newbie Alert! Have a computer, a sizable budget, and...

Hi all! This is an incredible website, and I feel lucky to have found it. I've been lurking around on and off for a few months, reading dozens of threads, and trying to learn what I can. I've read more "Here's my situation and what mic setup should I use?" questions than anything else, because that's my question too. But I need help, and so it's time for me to post.

Newbie RAM questions

Sorry to have to ask these but I see slightly varying opinions on #1.

1. With a ddr4 2133mhz stock ram, would I see any improvement in performance with say 2400, 3000, etc? Is this determined by the motherboard? what about when overclocking, even if the max the computer can handle is 2133mhz. (Still trying to verify if 2133 is the max my cpu can take with manufacturer)

Newbie here...I define Newbie...LOL

Hey ya'll I am new to learning how to record with my computer. I have a PreSonus Firebox, the downloaded Cubase LE program, also Audacity, a few mics, an Alesis iRig program with usb cable for my bass, and also a cool recorder called a Boss BR600. I also have a 3 tb portable hard drive. I am at a total loss on how to make the interface work, latency issues, terminology, etc.

Newbie Control Room Acoustic Treatment help

Hello everyone, my name is Gianluca and I'm writing from Italy.
I turned a basement into a recording studio, but I need a hand to the acoustic treatment.
Floor, ceiling and walls are covered with wood. Under the wood there is a layer of lead, polystyrene and moisture resistant material.
The dimensions are:
Length: 4m
Width: 2.56mt
Height: 2.7 meters

A little help here guys? (Newbie)

See, I'm trying to mix a song of mine here with audition, I only used an acoustic guitar and a condenser mic as well. But the thing is, my vocals really sounds crappy. And I really do want to learn the mixing stuffs and of course I've been playing around with ozone and other plugins. But I really don't know what the "hz" thing means i see on the compressor, eq, etc.
