Hey guys,

Some of you might remember my thread in which I asked what microphone I had to buy, Well today it got delivered. ( it's an at2020 to a m-audio fast track MkII)
However I can't get it to record the way I want it to.
It came with protools, and when I record it does indeed record but I cannot hear it when I choose to play it. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

Erm...It's not a microphone issue, you have to deactivate monitor mode (or whatever it's called in protools) in order to listen to what you've recorded; otherwise, it will continue to monitor the input.

what's the exact software?


protools SE ( I believe it's version 8 )

Edit: Now I get this message when Protools loads: The Asio Sample Rate is not supported by one of the usb interfaces. Check sync settings in control panel. Followed by : Unable to locate Avid hardware. Make sure your hardware is connected and turned on. While it booted fine 5 mins ago?

Edit: message fixed, still can't hear myself though.

Maybe use AllAsio?


I have that installed but it doesn't boot when using protools.

This?

Most likely cause.
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.

How? Can't seem to find monitoring mode anywhere.

In most DAWs the record enable button of each track plays this role. If it is ON, then it monitors the input, if it is OFF then it plays whatever sound clips you have on that track.

Then that's not the problem since it still doesn't play the clip when it's off.

If you mean knob then no, there's a mic gain, guitar gain, and outpot knob and a direct monitor button in the front ( makes no difference wether this is on or off.)

Excuse my ignorance if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure you can't use an interface that isn't Digidesign/Avid, for your version of ProTools. I presume you meant PT came with the mic, anyway? If PT came with the interface then excuse my post, but I believe you need Pro Tools M-Powered 8 in order to use an M-Audio interface with PT. SE is an older version, if I recall.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I installed the version of protools that came with the interface so it should be compatible.

Ah ok. And it was from a reputable retailer? Maybe they changed the name of SE to M-Powered but a quick check on the Avid website says you need M-Powered to run PT with an M-Audio interface, and it's how I remember it too. If you got it from a trusted source though, then it should be fine and ignore what I've said - I was led to the assumption partly by PT saying it couldn't find an Avid interface in the error message you posted.

Well it was from thomann.de so It should be legit.

Is there a way to choose a different output device than the one used for input in programs like protools and cubase? I ask because I think the program plays the audio back to the device instead of to my pc speakers.

Edit: When I import an audio file independent of the audio interface it still doesn't play in protools so I think it's because the audio signals back to the interface instead of the speakers.
