Recording Skips During Playback

Recording Skips During Playback

I attempted to record some of my vinyl records using n-Track, Creative Extigy external soundcard and my laptop, which is new and powerful.

During the recording it sounded great using my headphones. The playback however, seemed to skip in many spots within the recording.

Anyone else experience this problem?

Also, do I really need to use the external Creative Extigy or can I just plug in the mini plug from my stereo to the laptop?

Thanks.

Hey Rob,

Trying killing off any unnecessary processes prior to doing the recording, the CPU might be getting interrupted by other programs (anti-virus, IM, etc…) this will cause the drop outs.

Failing that, try adjusting the buffer settings.

I don’t see why not, just use the Line-In (not mic in), and line (or tape) out from the stereo.

Chutz,

I will try killing all processes and a direct feed into the laptop. Thanks for the info and see if that works.
