Too Hot...I almost jumped out of my chair at about 1:02. The instruments are way distorted and then again at 2:15. Sorry, but that's when I gave up. The volume needs to be turned down some to get rid of all that distortion.
If that is what you wanted, then you succeded, but it just isn't my type of music.
What's going on here? Things get way out of control and into distortion. You don't have Human Playback turned on do you? The volume levels are way out of control. Have you set the initial level in the Instrument List from their default levels..often 100 or so and way too high for distortion free output at higher dynamic levels.
when playing back from within Finale, even if the volume is too high, there will be very little distortion.
when you do playback for a recording, for some reason, any spots with volume peaks too high WILL distort during the recording process.
Normally, when I get ready to do a recording, I choose a couple of the loudest spots and do a quicky recording of just a few measures. I don't even have to listen to the recording itself - just listening WHILE it records should be enough to tell you if there will be distortion.
(I have a sort of catch-all file called "test.wav" which I just record over every time I do a recording level test)
So to recap: volume levels appear to be a little bit different between regular HP playback and audio file recording.
Sounds like a few technical difficulties arose on this one,
Gary. I've had problems myself combining GPO and JABB
in terms of getting them to cooperate on volume levels...
not quite sure why. I've generally been able to juggle the
mixer around enough to make them get along, though.
