Recording audio & MIDI
As we mentioned earlier in the manual all tracks in Amped Studio are hybrid. Not only does this mean they can play back audio and MIDI. It also means a track can record either audio or MIDI inputs! To record to a track in Amped Studio you first need to arm the track for the desired input signal. After having armed a track for recording press the record button in the transport.
Arm track for audio recording.
When you arm a track for audio recording it will use the first default audio input of your computer. The first time you record something in the web version of Amped Studio you may get a pop-up to allow our studio to use your microphone input. Allow access for audio recording to work.
Arm track for MIDI reording.
When arming a track for MIDI recording you can record with any MIDI keyboard or controller connected to your computer. It is also possible to record MIDI using the Virtual Keyboard in the studio, either by playing your computer keyboard or by clicking the keys with your computer mouse.
Input monitoring allows you to listen to your audio interface inputs. It is a good feature to use if you want to hear yourself during recording if your audio interface does not support monitoring functionality. Use the lowest buffer size possible to minimize the latency of what you are monitoring. You can change the buffer size in the studio settings, available in the menu.
Click the input monitoring button in the controls bar to turn it on. Also ensure a Track is enabled for audio recording.
Click to turn input monitoring on or off.
We highly recommend you to turn off your speakers during recording and use headphones if you are monitoring a microphone. This is to prevent unpleasant feedback noise.
