console sliders have no effect on incoming signal

Postby socgeek » Thu Oct 02, 2003 5:17 am


I just got Cakewalk Guitar Studio, and I am having a problem with mic input levels. It seems that no matter how I adjust the slider in the console view, the input level doesn't change. It doesn't raise or lower the incoming signal. The signal is definitely there, and it records (quiet), but I have no control. Might it be my sound card (soundmax)? I have also noticed that if I open up my volume control on my computer and mute EVERYTHING (including the microphone level), the signal still seems to make it to the recording level meter on the console.

I hope this makes sense. Any suggestions?

Try double clicking on the speaker icon in your taskbar

When the mixer comes up click properties then recording

adjust the line in (or mic in, whatever you are using) there and see what happens.

The windows mixer is kind of decieving, you have to make sure you are on the 'recording' section or else it will have no effect on what's going into your pc.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!
