spider 3/cubase problems
Hi, Im having some issues with cubase. Im a novice when it comes to recording anything. I dont need studio quality, just something to record some stuff with so the singer can listen to it.
Im currently running a line 6 spider III amp directly into the "line in" port on the back of my computer.
I can record in cubase sx 3 but when I play it back it's much quieter and it makes it virtually (bad pun) impossible to record another track over it because I cant hear what im playing over. To reiterate, ive hooked the line 6 straight into the computer, I can hear the guitar out of the speakers, I can play/record but when I play it back it is noticeably quieter than the volume of the guitar through the speakers while im not recording.
This maybe related, when I first set the input to "line in" in cubase I got this weird perpetual loop coming out of the speakers. It would just get louder and louder and never stop. I had to lower the slider in the bottom right hand corner to stop the loop. When I hover over the slider it says its "level control (output channel 1)"
Any help would be much appreciated
