I have a couple of issues that prevent me from recording my songs and I'm hoping you could help me with it. I'm currently using Jokosher, but I have the same problem with other multitrack programs such as audacity.
First of all, I start by importing a drum track done with Hydrogene. That works pretty well, but the first beat is cut, so it starts a split of a second late. That is not too bad though, I can live with that.
The next thing is that whenever I add another instrument, say a guitar, and start recording via a microphone plugged in to the mike-out of my laptop, it also records the drum track again on the guitar track. It is as if the computer would not only record the input from the microphone, but also the output of the soundcard. How can I stop this?
Also, there is always a delay for the guitar track (or whatever track I add), but I guess this is caused by the kernel, afaik. Is there an easy solution for this, other than moving the tracks around until they fit?
Many thanks for your help!
