    Default Weird recording glitch going into Audaicty...sounds like Twilight's Synth intro's :p

    I was just messing around with my Randall T2 and thought I 'd try a recording with it hooked up to my Mooer Radar IR loader (Celestion Greenback 2x12 loaded)

    ..so I wired it up to the signal from the amp's "speaker out" output (using a DI box) & into my loop pedal with a backing track & recorded the output in mono into Audacity through my interface.

    Things started out well, but then at the end weird **** suddenly happened & all of a sudden the whole thing starts sounding like a massive cyborg attack..

    **** knows what got messed up but it was fun

    Sounds like you kicked on a ring modulator. :P

    A ring moderator might not be a good profession.

    Dumb question. Did you use a real post amplifier speaker out into your DI, or a Low Voltage speaker out tap or speaker emulator out into the DI. Second does DI have a dummy load to handle high voltage or is it regular guitar/line level input?

    Ok, I listened to the clip -that sounds like a quantization problem to me, where you running low on available RAM CPU memory?

    Maybe? I had Reaper open at the time as well..don't know if that means anything.

    ...honesty that first post of yours went completely over my head

    EDIT...Ok got it..

    Here's what I did. Amp (solid state, so it does'nt really require a dummy load though I had it hooked up to one anyway) DI was my Behringer Ultra-G which has a speaker-through input (with the load-box connected to the link) & balanced XLR output. That went into my Mooer Radar IR loader which plugged into my loop pedal & out from there into my audio interface/Audacity.

    Record that track again, and watch in real time the CPU and GPU utilization. -you may have the playback monitoring sample rate too high and unnecessarily stealing cycles from the record quantization.

    It has'nt happened since...but thanks, yeah I'll keep a look out & check on that stuff next time I record. Reaper on the other hand is working fine. I just exported a track from my looper into it and did some re-EQ'ing /added some delay etc...no problems at all

    Woke this morning & recorded this into Audacity. No frills... just plugged into my AMT Stonehead & let it roll (direct to interface with the amp's cab simulated output). Jammed for for a few minutes ..lots of squealies...no glitches. Must've been a one off thing before. All's well that end's well

    Is the sample rate and bit depth consistent across the board (I assume so if it started out sounding okay) Maybe your drivers/converters aren't happy or the RAM CPU decided to redline at that moment.

    Don't know or care..the good news is it seems to be working fine now. I just thought it sounded cool (the glitch) so I shared

    I use Reaper for any serious recording I do these days (band stuff etc) and that's rock solid...never had a problem with it.

    If you want that sound again on purpose, a ringmod, a bit-rate reducer or both will do the trick!
