I am having problems getting Tunebite to accept the output from a SB Live 24 bit sound card. Tunebite will give me a test tone with “What you hear” selected as a recording device, but when I try to play a song, it doesn’t recognize. I have tried both the auto mode and the manual mode. In manual mode, it goes until the 15 second mark and gives me an error. Is there a setting or something I am missing? I have seen that you can use “What you hear” as a recording device, but can’t get mine to work??
have you already tried the wave option? I have a sb audigy and that setting works fine. Can’t tell you much more, since this is first day with the audigy card (had a sb 16PCI before, which only had a “stereo mix” option).
I am guessing the wave option is the “What you hear” option. The only other options I have are Microphone, Line-In, S/PDIF-In, and Aux. The only setting that will give a test tone in Tunebite is the “What you hear” option. It will give me a recording level and test tone, but will not record. It is driving me NUTZ!! Thank you for the suggestion tho.
What do you have selected as your input source?
cwbys08, i was thinking about picking up a Sound Blaster Live 24-Bit and have a question for you, does it have a digital INPUT? I know the Audigy series can record in 24-bit/96kHz, but I haven’t seen anything about the cheaper Live 24-bit. Do you know if it has a digital input capable of 24-bit/96kHz?
justcallmebob… I have “What U Hear” in the input selection.
Tried to send pic… but don’t know how yet… damn newbies
It does have a miniplug digital in (you can use a coax digital connection and use a rca to miniplug cable) … don’t know the specs on kHz. From what the book is telling me, you can get a Digital I/O module from their website that will give you optical digital in.
You aren’t using Windows Media Player version 8 by any chance? I had the same prob with Tunebite giving the 15s error. Upgrading to WMP 10 solved the problem
I am using WMP 10. I was able to record with Tunebite with the sound card built in my MB… I kept getting horrible distortion even at the lowest recording level Tunebite will let you do. I upgraded to the SB 24 to try to help the prob(thought it was because of cheap on board sound) and now I can’t get Tunebite to record. I know it worked before… but can’t figure out why it doesn’t now.
I didn’t realize this was a new sound card with an old install of Tunebite. Try reinstalling Tunebite. I couldn’t get Tunebite to recognize my new Audigy card either at first. I wrote down my serial number, removed Tunebite from my PC, downloaded it again and reinstalled it (whole thing took 5 minutes, tops). Then I got several “input device” selections, including “wave”, which I have used. Tunebite really does not have many settings to speak of, and I couldn’t figure out how to do much with it, which is why I just installed it again so it would hook up with my new sound card. Works great.
Thank you for a step in the right direction… I uninstalled and reinstalled. It told me there was no wave device… which I can’t understand since the BS sound card on my board had it… but I guess I will have to use a loopback cable. I hope it won’t degrade the quality. I still have some time to return the sound card tho… which Audigy card do you have? I might just get that one instead.
Tunebite was upgraded recently . . . how long ago did you purchase it? If you didn’t get the latest upgrade you might try that as well. Your same serial # will work on the upgrade.
I didn’t even think about what version of WMP you might be using, good catch calenture.
Hopefully you’ll get this worked out.
A big thank you to all who have helped. justcallmebob’s last post got me to upgrade my version of tunebite. It found the new sound card and the wave out. Everything works perfectly. You all have been a great help. Let me know if I can ever answer a question or help out with your problem.
