No Sound When Capturing Lp Audio

Question

When using the Roxio LP and Tape Assistant, I have selected my capture device and I can see its recording levels are operating succesfully. The material even actually records successfully. My problem is that I cannot monitor the sound that is recording because nothing is being outputted. When I stop recording and playback the audio file that was created, I hear my music very well. I am doing the playback in the same app. I sure would like to hear the music while it's recording. Can someone please help? How can I configure Roxio to use my default audio device while recording?

 

Thank you very much.

 

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit

Roxio 2010

12GB RAM

Dell Studio XPS 9100

Intel i7-930

Device input (recording) is using Microphone USB Audio CODEC

Output (playback) is defaulted to Realtek High Definition Audio (while recording, I don't see any activity in any of the playback devices)

Many people have complained that that USB turntable (and some USB connected microphones) will not give you audio during recording. Tie that in with your audio chip and you get what you are experiencing. There may be no cure for your laptop.

 

I assume that you have set the recording and playback devices in W7 properly. The settings are different and more tricky than previous versions of Windows.

I'm chalking this one up to a poor product produced by Roxio. I downloaded a free app, Audacity, and the beta version for Windows 7 works perfectly with my turntable. For the $$ we pay to Roxio and that they tout support for Windows 7 and digitizing LP's, I would expect more from Roxio.

 

With that said, I still have hope that there's an answer, so I hope whomever else reads these posts might have some good helpful hints.

 

Thanks for the help SKNIS, I appreciate that you took the time to reply.

I figured it out. Like I said, I didn't give up hope and I found what I needed.

 

Solution:

Going into Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Sound/Manage Audio Devices. Click on the recording tab and look into the properties for the USB Microphone Audio Codec. Once the properties dialogue box is up, click on the Listen tab and you will see that there is a checkbox there that says "Listen to this device." After merely checking this box, I was able to monitor the sound that Roxio was capturing.

 

I still assert though that the app design could use some improvement. Sure would have been nice to have a monitor control to go with the recording level slide control that is already there. At the very least, some troubleshooting hints about this problem could have been published. Lastly, there is also not a way to save a project at any of its critical points...one must follow-thru all the way to export or they will lose everything they have captured and entered as tag meta-data. Besides these minor critiques, my overall experience with the app was an enjoyable one, so don't get me wrong, it served its purpose and I got the desired results, but maybe in its next incarnation, some improvements can be made.

 

I hope this post can help someone else in the future.

I would post this in a Microsoft forum, or your USB turntable forum! It isn't the Roxio software that needs THAT improvement. :blink:

Frustrated for weeks with out any guru giving an answer that wasn't technical greek ie.( you must have a dedicated sound card with a mic port}, which by the way I have, you have answered the question perfectly and for that Iam very grateful. Your answer WORKS ! THANK YOU you are truly a friend in need. Jim
