so I am going to ask a question regarding level volumes on recordings again.
Sorry if this has been posted and answered before.
I am about to go and do some recordings with my M20. I would really like some simple no tech advice on what was going wrong the last time I tried this.
I recorded onto a good quality SD card tracks and vocals. Played it back on the desk and the mix is great. Put it onto my laptop and the levels of the vocals are hugely less than the music. The music is backing tracks recorded through line 13/14 stereo. I have the volumes of the vocals up to good strong levels. The music is poss have the strength.
The main mix out is nice and strong recording for performance levels.
I really don't want to have to sit there and increase the Db of my vocals when mixing them with my music just to get the levels equal. I would have thought that whatever I heard from my main mix and from the play back mix of the desk is what I would get once I loaded them on to my laptop.
What would be really great is an actual vid tutorial of recording a live mix and not just the recording tutorial that is on the site.
As that one is simply backing tracks being recorded and played back on the desk. Something that walks you through how to set the desk up to get a good result that sounds the same as the play back recording you listen to before loading it into your laptop or P.C.
I can't think of what else I can do if I have the levels all up at good volumes and what is causing the huge difference between levels of vocals and levels of track.
Cheers for any nice simple advice guys. I am not a sound tech... I know my way around my desk but all the tech talk would be wasted on me :-)
Thanks in advance.
