Guys, I don't know if it just happens to me, but the sound forge 14 has a bug, (or I didn't learn to use it). The VU-Meter only works when playing a song, does not work when recording, and does not work when using the "ARM" button. (in this case, it opens a window as if it were a mute song, that is, without sound)
I installed Sound Forge 9 (32 bits). The VU-Meter for recording worked. The "ARM" button worked.
I installed the new version of Sound Forge 126.96.36.199, (32 bits) again, the VU-Meter for recording did NOT work, but for playback it worked perfectly.
I went back to SF 9. I took a record player, connected it to a Pre Amplifier RIAA, connected this RIAA-Pre to an External sound card, of these low cost. And I connected this card to the computer (USB) because there is no stereo input.
Record player plate stopped, record player arm stopped. When using the "ARM" button, the VU-Meter varied between -25 and -35 dbm. I clicked on "DC-Off Set". The VU-Meter started to vary from -65 to -75 dBm.
Guys, news. I noticed that this problem with the VU-Meter only works in playback, not in recording, it also appears in Sound Forge 11. In SF 10 it works well. I also noticed something that caught my attention:
- Not using a USB input card, but the built-in Microphone input, (notebook), the VU-Meter that appears (and works) when you click Menu -> View -> Record Option. But only on the microphone. And when you click on ARM and click on "Monitor:ON", the VU-Meter on the right side of the screen also works, the same as the reproduction.
Even though I go to options -> Audio and select the USB card, the VU-Meter does not work on the USB card. However, if you activate this Recording Monitor, Change options in Menu-> Option-> Audio and try the recording monitor again, then yes, it works but only this recording VU-Meter, not the one on the right of the display. But that's a lot, I don't need to install another program just to capture the sound.
EDIT: New Tests.
I prepared the SF to monitor input on the USB card. Only the recording screen's VU-Meter worked. I prepared SF to mount microphone input. Recording VU-Meter worked, and the one on the right of the screen. I disconnected the external USB card, I connected the microphone, I triggered the recording screen, ARM, both VU-Meters worked. Without leaving the screen, I connected the USB card. Both VU-Meters remained in operation.
Today, I can say that I won the program due to tiredness, and, telling what happened, helping others.
