According to the documentation on Behringer's website, the Xenyx 802 is a simple 8-2 analogue mixer with no USB output. So I think your only choice is to feed the mixer audio output to your audio interface. If the mixer DID have a USB connection, allowing it to act as its own 'audio interface' it would doubtless sound the same as any other competent ...

To me it sounds like the sustain pedal of the piano being pressed (the sounds usually appears at the beginning of a new chord). If that is the case, it is strangely loud. Because it is in recordings from both artists, its either an intentional choice to keep them (maybe even amplify them?) or maybe both recorded in the same studio with the same old piano. On ...

Eventually, I had the chance to test the Engl Cabloader against my former setup and against several amp/cab simulators. The Cabloader has not disappointed me - quite the contrary. It delivered the expected sound(s) and is indeed a major improvement to my former setup. The Cabloader provides not only knobs to select the power amp (incl. "off") and ...

You know what, idk if the 2i4 is the right Audio Interface. I just purchased the DDM4000 yesterday and the sales person was telling me that you need at minimum the 4i4. I have the Native Instruments DJ 8 Audio Interface so I'll try to use that one, but want to connect it to Ableton as well, though really just wanted to plainly mix out of Traktor...

Sticky-shed The great 80s tape debacle - which I'm determined these days should be called ShedShed;) - affected a few tape types from the period. The first to be spotted & which spawned the investigation to find a cure was the Ampex 456, which was the studio mastering tape of the era. Even if your tape doesn't suffer from it, you still need to take ...

'Recording' means several different things - all connected with production of something which can later be recovered. Writing in a courtroom, making a video, capturing sound on many different media. It's not necessary to utilise a microphone to record - although it's one way to enable sound to be reproduced later. One can D.I. any electric instrument - ...

'Recording' in English definitely doesn't only mean 'through microphones'. If you were to take the output of an analogue synth, plug it straight into an recorder (analogue or digital), and record its output - that's 'recording'. Personally, I tend to think that 'recording' sound usually tends to refer to any process of capturing audio that occurs in real or ...

This answer's primary motif is the difference between Random and Systematic Errors in a Scientific Experiment. Random errors are pretty random as the name says and cannot be correct once the data collection phase is over, while Systematic errors are those that are almost constant and can be corrected later after the experiment's data collection phase is over....

I had a similar problem, and realized that my connection to the recording device (my computer) was bad. I was using an amplifier/mixer connected directly to the PC's built-in audio interface (i.e. not using USB), and couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from. By using a real "pro-sumer" audio interface (with its own built-in phantom power ...

Any decent DAW will have a Noise Reduction option. They usually work by sampling the noise floor from a few seconds of audio just recording the background noise, then using that profile to process the noise out. Of course that should be done after all the other efforts suggested elsewhere to reduce the noise floor in the first place, get your mic proximity ...

what else can I try? Use a multiband dynamics processor that can be set up as both a compressor and expander, and use it as a multiband gate. For each frequency band, particularly high frequencies, attenuate everything that's below a threshold level. I don't know if Logic has such a plugin, but Ableton Live has. I use Ableton's multiband dynamics plugin, ...

If you're tempted to go 'virtual' I wouldn't throw any money at it until you've at least tried Guitar Rig. There's a demo & also a free Player version I've done entire commercial albums with it. It's not the only one available - there are lots. I found this list of 15 Best Amp Simulators Of 2020 (Most Realistic Amp Sims) I've used a few in that list. I ...

Thanks to the link provided by @TomC I scrolled to the bottom and it says your particular model unfortunately only transmits and receives MIDI data, not audio so you will have to take another approach. The simplest (and cheapest) approach is to send a line from the headphone output of the keyboard to the computer’s microphone input. You may need to buy a ...

According to the manual for computer-related operations: You can record your keyboard performance as audio data to a Music Production software on your computer. For more detailed instructions, refer to the Owner’s Manual supplied with your instrument.To transmit audio data, you will need to install the Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver to your computer. In ...
