if you have to much bass or volume from the mixer that will do it,well did for me i have the master volume on the mixer at 9 0 clock for recording in audacity,and never touch it,also channel 1 n 2 volumes rarely go past 12 o clock give or take the quieter record where you have to crank it up.this is just what works for me as i used to get loads of distortion and havnt since doing this.

i use audacity but what else is like it but free to download i need another free audio editing joby.


QuickTime Pro (Mac+PC) is single handedly the easiest Audio Recording Tool ever!

but if you want a more advanced audio editing software id suggest, Cubase (Mac+PC), Logic (Mac), ProTools (Mac+PC), WaveLab (PC), SoundForge (PC)

Good Luck!

i also have a little recording problem i use Audacity but i dnt tink it is the program that is the problem. When i record a mix it works fine and the ound quality is ok but i get high pitched noises also in the recorded mix i put it down EMF interference so i moved my laptop away from everything electrical and put the cable from the mixer to the laptop away from any other cables and it still was preent on the mix, so i the thought it might be interference internal on my laptop so i disconnected the internet and closed all other programs and still the same fucking noise evry now and then on the mix.

Anybody have any ideas? any help is appreciated
