  1. Hui,

    I have a completed track and am now adding vocals. On the meter the signal seems fine, no clipping, maybe reading 12 peak. All by the book. But on playback its far too quiet, drowned out by other instruments. But the other tracks are all set ok with no peaking or distorting.

    I can get the vocals louder but of course it is then in the red and distorted. Any obvious errors? ( I route the mike through a small Yamaha mixer MG82, and from there to a Steinberg interface, maybe that's a problem? I do this as my mike lead isn't a jack and doesn't fit the Steinberg input jack. ( Amateur hour I know)

  2. Hiya

    Okay, getting there but not quite. Ive attached a screenshot. I've added a new track ( instrument) and set the input to Steinberg Midi Omni. It now records from the Juno as a Midi track so far so good, I can see the midi notes.

    But I cant hear the resulting recorded track on my headphones. As to Output choices, Steinberg or New Drum Map are the only choices on the drop down for the output. So I chose Steinberg.

    And there my feeble knowledge base runs out!! I've a feeling I'm nearly sorted though!


  3. Hi all,

    I have a Steinberg UR22 interface set up as my input and output interface. I want to play my Juno as a controller keyboard for MIDI but I'm struggling. Preferences for Midi input and output devices show the Steinberg. No sign of the Juno? I am using a MIDI cable from the keys to the interface, not a USB. Obviously missing something simple as usual, so how do I get my Juno to trigger the midi? It all works when I use the virtual instrument in Cakewalk , clearly I havent grasped this at all!

  4. Sorry, to give more info, I've just found what may narrow it down; it seems to relate to my drums track, using addictive drums. But the signal is ok at around -12 no peaking or red meter? Things improve when I mute it, and the crackles return when I un mute...but I dont see why this should happen?

  5. Hi,

    i am plagued by random crackles on my recording of a song. They seem to be at one spot one time and then a different place at another time. Its not peaking I learnt how to sort that using this ( super helpful) forum. No red peaks on the meter etc. But...there they are and they sound vile. Any clues for a novice?

  6. Thanks guys. Okay I was under a bit of a misapprehension. But I've bought the Vintage Organ package  now so I need to get it sorted. I struggle with MID,l 'cos I I'm a bit of a luddite but I really need to get my act together and learn how to use it. The Juno DS is only a year old so its fine to use as a MIDI controller(?) I'll get started tomorrow. But really appreciate the help, and patience with a novice.

  7. Okay, making progress here! Thanks.

    So...See screenshot, I'm up to the "good to go" stage! Big knowledge gap. Up to now,  I use VST plugins for existing tracks for example a guitar solo, and simply open the effect within the track and the guitar solo is given the particular sound I choose. (THU plugin) All simple.


    But how do I get the vintage organ sound to alter my existing organ solo, which I recorded and originally played on my Juno keyboard? Or do I have to set it up as a midi controller? ( hope not|) Can I simply drag something to the Juno track and it alters the sound? Or do I need to do a new track with Vintage Organs set up on it? Sorry these are dumb questions its all new to me.

  8. Okay, so I have Kontakt downloaded and its in "C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\Kontakt\Kontakt.exe" But when I try to add this path to VST Plugins in Preferences, ( VST scan paths) the path doesnt show the final part i.e. the exe file kontakt.exe It simply ends at Native Instruments/Kontakt.

    So when then I do a scan it still doesnt add Kontakt to my plugins and hence I cant add it to the track by using the "insert" command or the drop down from the "add instrument" in Cakewalk. See screenshot
