Question from an Audio Masterclass visitor...
We bought the Audiophile 2496 (non-FireWire) card and received the M-Audio software mixer with it.
I have tried everything I can think of to get it to record. Here is how I have it set up...
Output to mixing desk channels 11/12. Input out of Tape Out to input on the card. I am not using the digital cables as I have nothing digital to hook up.
I understand this mixer is supposed to be extremely good (The M-Audio one that is) however it is extremely non-user friendly in my opinion and I can't figure out what I am supposed to set in the Patch Router to get it to record.
No matter what I choose I don't see anything on the level meters when I speak into the microphone neither recording or simple talking into it without recording.
Do you have any idea what I need to set to get this thing to record? Otherwise it was a waste of my money.
Can anyone with experience of this equipment and software offer advice?
