Unable to record

Ronald-Buuck wrote on 4/20/2020, 9:19 PM

Music Maker Ver 28.0.2.47. I am using a Behringer XENYX 1204USB Mixer/Interface into a Lenovo Win10 Laptop. I can connect instruments to the XENYX and play, control volume, etc. I hear the sound fine. I am using the ASIO4ALL V2 (1+2) for the input. When I play I do not see the Level Indicators move to show any input. When I hit Record there is no levels shown and noting is recorded. I have been using an approximately 10 year old version of Music Maker on an old HP laptop without any issues with the Behinger. This is a new laptop and a new version of Music Maker for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the Magix forums.

First, are you trying to record the audio output of your mixer? If so, is everything set up correctly in the Program Settings>Audio/MIDI tab to use this input? (Perhaps you could take a screenshot of that window and attach it to any reply?)

Assuming that is all set up correctly, and you are trying to record AUDIO, have you checked that the button I've highlighted below is set to "Audio Record"?

I am trying to record audio from the Behringer via USB interface to my laptop. This is what I have done for years with my old laptop and an older version of Music Maker. I use the same Behringer with both.

Please see the attached screen shots

Hi

The settings shown in your image above are for Playback.

To set the correct input device select the gear icon, arrowed in the image below, to open the Audio recording dialog, the top option circled, should have the Behringer in the the drop down list - select it.

@Ronald-Buuck I dont see an input device on the pic you shown. on the right where you have input device...it is blank....There should be your keyboard in the drop down menu if it installed correctly?

Ronald-Buuck wrote on 4/24/2020, 9:25 PM

Thank you both for your input! John, the Behringer uses the ASIO4ALL v2 drivers. So the Audio Recording circled is the Behringer. ImSean, I think the input you are referencing is the MIDI input. I am not using a MIDI device.

@Ronald-Buuck

On the screen you show for the Audio Playback, under the dropdown where ASIO4All is shown can you click the Advanced button and shows us what that screen says. I have a feeling that ASIO4All may be defaulting to a different input.

On my system, if I activate the ASIO4All driver>Advanced button, I see the following options:

I use a MOTU interface, hence it is selected; I do NOT use the Realtek option, ever. I suspect yours may be showing the "wrong" input source.

Thank you! Will check. Makes sense.

Ronald-Buuck wrote on 4/29/2020, 9:32 PM

Here are my settings. Something I noticed is even though I hear my instrument as I play there is no activity on the track showing sound and the Indicators do not move. There is the word "pitch" just above the instruments that flashes a little every time I play a chord. Probably doesn't mean anything. I am beginning to think there is a Windows 10 setting I have wrong. I can't figure out how it would keep the sound from reaching the record portion of the program.I can hear my Behringer and can control it with MAGIX, but the recording section of MAGIX doesn't see it, or the volume is so low it doesn't register.

Thanks again!!

Hi again.

Thanks for the update! I admit I can see nothing "wrong" with those settings.

So, a little experiment: if you "Disable" all the Realtek inputs (click on the blue symbols alongside each entry to turn each one off) and then try again to record from your mixer. Does it now work? If not, try also disabling the Realtek output, although this may mean you can't hear any playback but you should still be able to monitor via your Behringer mixer.

Will do. Thanks!

Did you try recording in Win10 using any other app, like Audacity? Behringer provides links to downloads for the X1204 at: https://www.behringer.com/Categories/Behringer/Mixers/Analog/X1204USB/p/P0A0H/Downloads#googtrans(en|en)

The "Audio Software for Windows" they give you is Audacity and some podcast apps. Worth a shot to try something else so you can maybe eliminate the problem. For me, Win10 has been a constant issue with so many different programs that worked fine in Win7 and Win8.

Sorry so long to reply. I work in hospitals and COVID is keeping me busy. I tried the enable and disable experiments and still no recording. I installed Audacity and when I go to record I get this error and my inputs available are:

I do not see the ASIO4ALL. I also cannot find the ASIO4ALL device (if there is supposed to be one) in my Win10 Device Manager. Do either of you see any indication that ASIO4ALL is installed and working in Win10. I don't see it listed on the Sound Settings or anywhere to be honest.

Thanks so much for the assistance!

@Ronald-Buuck

It's a very long time since I used Audacity but I think it does not use any ASIO driver you have installed. If so, that is why you do not see it listed.

On your second screenshot, Recording>Device, what other options are shown on the dropdown arrow?

Hi

Is the Behringer XENYX connected by USB the PC, or is the XENYX line out (audio) fed to an input of the RP500 which is connected to the PC by USB?

Did you install ASIO4All from the link @AtHomePA gave you?

ASIO4All is a driver not a device.

Here is the ASIO4ALL to try: http://www.asio4all.org/

The previous link was for the download page on Behringer.com, if you saw the ASIO4ALL selection and clicked on it, you will end up on the same page as the above link.

As I am checking on the web, I don't think ASIO is compatible with Audacity.

Ronald-Buuck wrote on 5/8/2020, 10:10 PM

The 4 items below the arrow are the dropdown items.

The XENYX is connected via USB to the laptop. The driver and Audacity are from http://www.asio4all.org/ Ver. 2/14 English. I am beginning to think the XENYX is not working properly as an Audio Interface.

I went back to my Win7 laptop with MAGIX 2013 that I have done several recordings with and it does record but the sound from the XENYX is very noisey and the settings I have to use don't seem to make sense. I have another Audio Interface that I used for years I will try with the Win7 laptop and see if it is normal. That should narrow things down.

Thank you all so very much for your help!

Ronald-Buuck wrote on 5/8/2020, 11:39 PM

Looks like it is the Audio Interface portion of the XENYX. Connected my old TASCAM US-144 to the Win7 Laptop and it works fine with MAGIX 2013. Now I just need to see if the TASCAM has drivers for Win10. Kind of doubt it since it is so old. Will update again, hopefully soon.
