Sound Fluctuating in BandLab

Recommended Posts

While laying down a audio track (guitar) and also while listening to all the tracks after recording, the overall sound fluctuates between sounding a bit bassey to sounding more clear. It typically happens about halfway through the recording  and at times will go from bass to clearer to bass again. This happens with all the tracks at the same time. Is it possible that the drivers aren't working properly? This did not happen when I was using Sonar, before changing over to Bandlab.

Thanks for your time.

Joel

You don't give us anything to go on... What is your set up- audio interface etc. If your using on board audio then that might be why.

My apologies. I am using roland quad capture as my interface and my imported drum and bass tracks (and any other tracks like strings, piano etc.) are generated from Band in the Box. My guitar vst is amplitude 4. I also will mention that the loudness does vary slightly as well when it goes from the bassey sound to more treble, clearer sound. Sometimes it will fluctuate a couple times and other times it can be 3 or 4 fluctuations throughout the recording. It happens while recording and while listening to the playback.

 I hope I gave you enough information.

Thanks,

Joel

Almost sounds like your monitoring system might have a bad connection, cable etc. The DAw cannot do this unless you have a weird plug in happening. 

Try this- Headphones 

By pass all effects. FX 

Switch to your on board sound card and use the headphone jack. Or better yet another audio interface if you can borrow one.

I had this problem recently - turned out to be the 3.5mm to 1/4" headphone adapter I was using.  I replaced it with a short cable instead:

Trouble shooting is a process of elimination. You have to look at your whole system and swap out components until the issue disappears. That includes Hardware and Software components. A  VST plug in would be a software component. A Headphone jack a Hardware component.
