Recording with THR10

Unread post by strugglin_author » Tue Mar 03, 2015 10:13 pm

Hi,

New to the forum and (relatively) new to guitar.

I recently bought myself a THR10 and wonder if one of you good people might be able to help with a recording query:-

I have (finally, after much keyboard banging) managed to set up Cubase on my PC and subsequently recorded my guitar via the USB cable. What I would really like to do is be able to record the guitar with some backing music. I've been playing backing music OK via the Aux jack on the THR10 but unfortunately Cubase only records the guitar, not the input from the Aux.

So the question is: is there anyway to tell Cubase, or perhaps my PC, about the Aux input or is it simply not possible? I should add that although I know my way round a PC I have no background in music or music software and so it's all a mystery to me.

Thanks.

Hi there

You should be glad that Cubase is only recording the guitar.
The backing track you're better of having on a separate track in Cubase.

If you can get the backing track on a file, you can import it to Cubase on a separate track.
Make sure sample rate matches your project.

Best of luck

Oh yeah, and the Novation KS4 is now hooked up again(even though it has to rest vertically when not used)!

Thanks for the swift response zpink :)

I think I can see how to import an MP3 (Media->Import Medium). So presumably I need to somehow 'line the two tracks up' so that they're in Sync? Unless this is what you meant by ensuring the sample rates are the same?

Did I mention I have no experience of music software... :oops:

Yeah, well once you have your mp3 imported on a separate track, it will play whilst you're recording your guitar on another track and you can do your overdubs etc. on as many tracks as you want, it'll stay in sync. :-)

Actually, when you import and audio file, Cubase will ask you if you want to convert it to your project's sample rate and make a copy in the projects Audio folder, so you don't have to worry about the sample rate.

When you're done recording, you can adjust your levels in the mixer and export and you will have your backing together with your guitar tracks.

Have fun! :-)
