    QX1202 Vocal Recording

    Hi guys,

    I have purchased a small mixer and microphone to record my singing with background music. However I have been struggling to get the equipment work properly without any result. Your helps and advice will be much appreciated.

    Here it goes, it's kind of lengthy but I tried to explain my problem as thoroughly as possible.

    1.hardware
    1)Behringer QX1202USB, Mixer & Audio interface
    2)Behringer C-1, condenser microphone
    3)LG laptop, i5 processor, 4GB RAM, Windows 7

    2.Drivers
    1)64 bit USB ASIO driver : BEHRINGER_2902_X64_2.8.40
    2)Combined 32/64-bit 3rd party ASIO driver by ASIO4ALL

    3.Recording S/W
    1)Reaper 64 bit
    2)Reaper ASIO setting

    ScreenHunter_03 Mar. 04 06.41.jpg

    4.Hardware Setting
    1)C-1 to CH1 of the mixer, Headset to ‘Phones’, QX1202 to laptop by USB connection
    2)All the knobs are turned down to 0 except the gain and level of CH1(microphone) and the Phones/CTRL RM
    3)All the sound settings on my laptop are set to “Behringer USB WDM AUDIO 2.8.40”

    5.Problems
    I cannot record my voice with the background music and real-time monitoring. Here goes the combination of settings and problems for each case.

    Case 1.
    Setting
    USB/2TR to phones/CTRL Pushed down
    USB/2TR to Main mix Not pushed

    Problem
    Voice signal to mixer and laptop -> OK
    Recording -> OK
    Voice to headset -> no, only the music came through the headset
    Background music on Track #1 -> OK

    Case 2.
    Setting
    USB/2TR to phones/CTRL pushed down
    USB/2TR to Main mix pushed down

    Problem
    Voice signal to mixer and laptop -> No
    Recording -> No
    Voice to headset -> No
    Background music on Track #1 -> OK

    Case 3.
    Setting
    USB/2TR to phones/CTRL Not Pushed
    USB/2TR to Main mix pushed down

    Problem
    Voice signal to mixer and laptop -> No
    Recording -> No
    Voice to headset -> OK, real-time monitoring was possible
    Background music on Track #1 -> No

    Case 4.
    Setting
    USB/2TR to phones/CTRL Not Pushed
    USB/2TR to Main mix Not pushed

    Problem
    Voice signal to mixer and laptop -> ok
    Recording -> ok
    Voice to headset -> OK, real-time monitoring was possible
    Background music on Track #1 -> No

    As for case#1, when I clicked on the ‘monitoring’ button on the Reaper I could hear my voice but it had a delay. I changed the ASIO configuration to fast and relaxed but neither of them worked.

    How can I record my singing with the background music in real time??

    Dear Yuri,

    to record your voice with your playback being played from reaper you have to do as in your Case 1. But you also have to turn up the main fader on the mixer and choose the ASIO driver within reaper instead of the WDM driver.

    Michael, thank you very much for your reply.

    I forgot to mention I had the main fader turned up about 80%, and also chose the ASIO driver from the reaper. The attached pictures in section 3. Recording S/W show my ASIO setting.

    Thank you very much!
