Record monitoring [solved]

Post by Jmcmillan » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:17 am

Beginner question I think :D
I have a very simple setup, iPad Air 2/USB mic/61key MIDI keyboard. No audio interface yet. Will spend some money later - making use of what I had already to learn.

After recording instrument tracks, I record the vocal tracks using software record monitoring. This is using basically just the master signal. So am I right that the only way to adjust the monitor mix in my ears while I sing is to adjust the volume faders on each channel? Is there a way to setup a custom monitor mix in Auria Pro with my simple setup?

Wait, so you're using the built in iPad mic and you're wondering if there is gain control? Is that the question?

Using a USB mic (Samson C01U) connected with Apple USB3 Camera Connection adapter. Not using built in mic.

I have to turn on software record monitoring (there's no hardware monitoring with this USB mic), but I want to control the mix in my headphones when recording audio tracks. I have three other MIDI tracks playing while I'm recording the audio track.

The manual says the software record monitoring option just send a Master Mix to the headphones, but I want to adjust the mix in my headphones while recording audio tracks (e.g. make the vocal track louder than the MIDI tracks while recording). I think I have to temporarily adjust the channel faders, but wondering if there is another way.
Thanks!

Hmmm, I've never personally used this setup, but I don't see how there could be a way to control gain without any sort of interface.

Is there's an issue with adjusting the channel faders? That's normally how you would do it, yes,

No issue, just making sure that's the best way with my setup.
