When Recording In Live, Do The Meters Represent, In or out

Post by Guest » Sat Mar 08, 2003 7:29 pm

I can't tell. I have a mackie 1202vlz mixer connected to an m-audio 2496
soundcard, and I would like to record the hottest signal i could get into live
but keep the volume down monitoring volume down at the same time.


how do I accomplish this :?:

In Live you have meters at two locations :

if you open the Bus View and select Input you see what comes in from your soundcard.
attached to this meter is a gain slider which currently has a pretty useless scaling ( we will change this for the next release ). ignore the slider and set it to 0.0 dB. (at the Bus View you can also define if you need a mono or stereo input )

Now you see exactly what comes in to live and this is also what will be recorded onto the HD.

The meters at the tracks do show the input signal when set to monitor.
If monitor is set to off they show the track output after all track FX and after the tracks volume / pan section.
