      Could you talk about using an interface such as the Mic Port Pro or Icicle, that way you can use any mic and are not just stuck with the USB mics.

      I mention this because I had a terrible time with a USB mic. On both a PC and Mac laptop I got these weird electronic stuttering noises, probably from some computer setting issue. But no one could ever get it working right.

        Excellent idea, Robert! I work it into a bonus module. Thank you for your comments! 🙂

      Terry…
      Tons of good info here, but I still need a problem solved. I’m using Cool Edit Pro and need to know how to send files in MP3 format. “Send as” format is Wave. How do I switch back and forth between to two formats? Thanks for sharing all your experience with us rookies.

      For the past 8 months I have been working very much in the dark and was losing motivation, until I stumbled upon the Voice Over Club. I am really finding the modules so helpful, particularly module 2 , which I am half way through. I am so green on the whole recording aspect. I look forward to working through the whole of the module

      I have a mic port pro which is amazing and so easy to use.

      This is a pretty stupid question but I never know what volume settings to put the mic port pro on – or is the volume controlled by the recording programme- at present I work with Audacity. I know you can see by the waves on the screen as to whether volume is too loud or not – but where should this be controlled from ? In Audacity or on the mic port pro? Of course modulating the voice itself would be key- but I am interested to know from the technical aspect. Thanks again!

        Hi Michele!

        There’s no such thing as a stupid question. Yours is a good one and I wish I had a better answer. I don’t use the micport pro but on my preamp, I have a gain control that is up about half way. Is there something like that on the micport pro? I will get some answers for you. Thank you for the encouraging comments and good luck!

      Hi Terry,

      I have adobe audition 3.0 and I am trying to figure out how to use the multi-tracking functions. Specifically, I would like to record my voice on track 1 and some music playing on the 2nd track.

      However, I just want to playback the 2nd track only. NOT RECORD. And the 1st track recording my voice only without picking up any other sound.

      Any recommendations.
      Thank you

      Terry, can you go thru the steps of “punch” editting and mastering in Adobe audition?

        Great idea, Charles! I’ll have Scooter Fortney do a module on this one! Thanks for the comment! 🙂

      Hi Rick!

      Mute any tracks that you do not want to hear in your headphone and arm the track that you want to record. You should see an “R” tab next the mute tab. That’s how it looks on CS5.5. I’m not 100% sure it’s the same spot on 3.0 but should be.

      Cheers!

      Lovin your website, great info Question I have is there any online class you have or recommend to learn how to use Audacity software? Not a technical guru by any stretch and looking at it is making my eyes glaze over. Help.

        Hi Freddy! There should be a tutorial in the module you are in regarding Audacity and Adobe Audition! Thank you so much for being a member of Voice Over Club! 🙂
