Recording Audio

At this point, let’s assume that you have already configured your studio for audio recording and that you understand how audio goes into your computer through the sound card and comes out of it into an external audio monitoring system (self-powered studio monitors or headphones, for example). If you have not configured your audio connections already, you should do so before proceeding because you might want to test things out as you read the information found below.

Before you begin recording audio, you should configure the project’s sample rate and format through the Project Setup dialog box (the default key command is Shift+S) if you haven’t done so already. After you start recording in one sampling rate, you can’t change it. All audio files in a project have to be recorded (or imported) at the same sampling rate. You should also make sure that the digital clock of the audio card is set up correctly if you are using a digital input to record your audio. The digital clock defines the exact sampling frequency of the sound card. If your sound card is receiving its digital clock information from an external digital audio device, your sound card should be set to follow this device’s sampling frequency.
