    Recording Audio Problems

    rond79675598

      I've watched all the tutorials and have gone through the audio I/O setup. My Rode NT USB mic configures properly.  The audio mixer has the red record lights on yet I can't don't get a VU meter signal.  Please help.  Thanks, Ron

          You have to 'arm' the track you wish to record to ...

           

          On the Track mixer, right below the "Read: options, click the R for the track you wish to record onto, then click the red button at the bottom of the Track Mixer panel, then hit Spacebar to start moving ... and you are recording immediately. A red "Recording ..." bar will be showing at the bottom of the Program monitor.

           

          Or ... in the track header for the sequence, on the track you wish to record onto, click the mic button, then it should start recording from about 3 seconds before where the play-head/CTI started.

           

          You get meter signal after you start recording.

                  All the below assumes you have a mic that Pr is recognizing. So having your Preferences/Audio Hardware dialog set up properly is the first thing to do. So ... work with the settings there until they work. For me, typically it's been Default Input to the mic input for my computer, and output to Speakers. Though I've started using an app that allows me to run the mic into Audition, have processing set up using the Dynamics and Parametric Equalizer to normalize, compress, cut noise, and limit top end levels and then get that processed sound into Pr. Which is spiffy.

                   

                  Also ... working with the mic in Audition, you can see the vu meters anytime sound goes into the mic. Which makes it easier to check your levels before recording as there is no way in Pr to do that. But it's not necessary ... I'd always just recorded and adjusted the mixer level a bit while talking to get proper 'base' settings then normalized the track after recording.

                   

                   

                  Here's a graphic or two ... first, using the Track mixer.

                   

                  Note the 1, 2, and 3 in red: Click the R button of the track you wish to record to so that it's red ... then click the red button at the bottom of the track mixer so that it has the little blue line around it ... then click the "play" arrow at the bottom of the Track Mixer. At that point, there should be "Recording ... " in red at the bottom of the program monitor and you keep talking.

                   

                  AFTER you stop recording, the sound media will appear on the track you selected.

                   

                  Or ... easier ... click the microphone in the track header of the track you wish to record onto and recording should start instantly, again ... appearing after you've stopped the CTI with the spacebar.

                  Note ... no audio appears yet ... but after stopping the CTI with spacebar, it doth appear ...

                    Right on, R Neil. Great visual. Follow those 3 steps illustrated in your Graphic. I also use the RODE NT mic and it works great with Premiere. After you go to Preferences > Audio Hardware  and select the RODE NT as the input, I have a breakdown of how I record in this tutorial starting at 8:38

                      I suggest also if you can check the Audio channel mapping inside the preferences and the Audio Hardware selections in the preferences

                        Hello, my mapping is correct. Can you call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx?  I will pay if required, thanks, Ron
