It sounds to me like it your Mic input / or the mixer. Probably the mixer power conflicting with the Mic input. and I am sorry But the So Cal guitar style will not make my remix stuff : ) I actually figured all of my stuff was done on this dell inspiron 8000. Here are tips though. Dell is a Kickass laptop for everything BUT sound. upgrade to ASIO 2 drivers. and Upgrade your firmware here http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R107735&SystemID=PDA_MP3_DJ_2&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=9420&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=&impid=&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=139674
for your hardware they have a tool to help. and it sounds like the hiss is just power going into the Mic in. if you are new to recording that happens when you are not used to playing sets and all. P,S. Nice guitar.... My 4 channel does tha same thing. Any recording. what you pick up is probably static. . . . . you gotta figure you are recording. other than that I am sorry man. thats most of what I got to help you. Ps. Go DELL!
Hope this works for you. Need something else, let me know.
@Sculptor: You may need to update your DirectX version (even if you have DX 9.0c). Haven't worked out why yet but for some versions of DirectX it doesn't 'find' it. If that doesn't help let me know the error message you get and I'll see if I can work it out.
Edit: Darn it! It was set to look for a specific version of DirectX so the latest DX is the one that's working. I'll see to fixing it for the next TeleQ version, thanks Sculptor for letting me know.
Maybe useful? If not let me know...
I thought it might be useful to try and get users to add their Equipment as tags or something.
Or perhaps some kind of list of microphones and how many files associated.
This would give people an idea of the kinds and popularity of equipment used, to help newbies just getting their feet wet.
Just a thought. ops:
I've recorded a version - genuine Hampshire. Uploaded but not approved yet - file Cloudy_today.mp3.
It sounds similar, but can we get any closer? This one is really quick, I'm kinda looking for a sound that is deeper and echoes more. Maybe I can tweak it alittle bit to make it sound more like how I want it!
Good Effort though!! Thanks!
Thanks for answering my questions
I have been down loading packs so that is why they haven't appeared on the Attribution list.
on this file (guitar part) you can here the hiss.
before any guitar is heard the hiss is there. this might help....
please dont remix the guitar and make a gold record with it.
im using a pc. a dell.
"Have you checked the cables? "
im using a 4 track going rca to "little jack" into the mic input
as for checking the cables, i turned off the the four track all together and still got the hi-pitch while recording silence.(just hitting record/no signal)
im using soundforge to record.
would the four track being off take away the cable issue? or would the cables leading to an "off" 4 track still cause it?
I'm gonna need a voice saying clearly the following words:
all voices welcome
Thank you Bram!!! I have been waiting for someone to come in and back me up on this! Good to know that freesound supports and respects the copyrights of commercial products. Thanks for the help!!!
patience young grashopper!
and for downloads: if you download packs they don't show up in the list. But INSIDE the packs you will find a nice TXT file describing all the files.
*hint*: found with the search feature on this site.
time to step in...
adamstrange/others: although you might practice ripping DVD's at home, we at freesound can't support this as you probably understand. We don't host illegal sounds, nor do we condone talking about how-to-illegally use sound (just like we don't condone links to ilegal sounds). HOWEVER, and this is an important one, if you take sounds from a copyrighted source and then change it so much it is no longer recognizable that's where the lines of legal and illegal begin to blur (and sometimes we like that blurry vision here at freesound: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=19268 )
bpenman: I don't think a sound like that exists on freesound, but maybe a lot of sounds that kind of sound like it... I'm not sure how this kind of sound would be recorded (because I've only heard it in movies, never in real life!). Maybe try walking through http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/tagsViewSingle.php?id=83 ?
The Cyber Dog with angel's wings and a taste for cat food is right - your files have entered "moderation" - this is a holding place for sound uploads where they are checked over and roughed up by our hard working moderators to make sure they are ok to post. It is a kind of Guantanamo Bay for sounds but one where the guards are good guys.
Hi, Jay. Is that one full announcement, like a single sentence? I just wasn't quite sure how to read "classics" with the rest of it.
Also, is Hanlon pronounced like han (as in can) lun? And I assume the emphasis is on the Han. Thanks!
hi thanks for taking the time to try and help, they are seperate sentences.
hanlon is pronounced han lun depending on where your from im from yorkshire in the uk so for me its han lun where as if you were down south it'd be han lon, if its not too much trouble could you do both han lun and han lon thanks for your time.
Hi pitched hiss....that sounds hella the shit.
Is it only when you first plug in? it should be then stop usually.... is the mixer just 1/4 jacks running into the PC through the Mic in or do they run in through a desktop soundcard dock. The MIC in could be the cause depending on the laptop and the recording devices it uses. You may be able to upgrade your firmware on your soundcard and see if that fixes it but if not I wouldn't know what to say. It just sounds like feedback from the power supply of the mixer and equipment. As for taking out the hiss (the easy/hard way) however you look at it. You may be able to use a Notch filter or even try to unplug the cable and leave it just a tad unplugged during recording, unless your live then that is bad.....! Just take any HP and play with it. I am totally assuming your running a laptop though, so its probably the soundcard. you need to manually fix that.......
You need to wait for the files to be approved. That's the email you will get or you will get one saying that it is not approved..... Just wait.
As for the attribution list.... I have no idea what that means........
Not sure if this is the right place ?? for these questions
