Recording Multichannel Audio
If you have an audio device that supports multiple inputs, you can use Sony Sound Forge to perform multichannel recording.
1. Connect your audio sources to your sound card's inputs.
2. Enable your recording inputs:
1. From the Options menu, choose Preferences, and click the Audio tab.
2. Choose your recording device from the Audio device type drop-down list.
3. Click the Record tab.
4. Select the Enable check box for each input you want to enable for recording, and then select a radio button to assign the input to an audio channel.
In the following example, the signal from Analog in 1 is recorded to channel 1, Analog in 2 is recorded to channel 2, and so on.
5. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog and save your changes.
3. Create a data window for your recording.
1. From the File menu, choose New.
2. Choose a sample rate from the Sample rate drop-down list, or type a custom value in the edit box.
3. Choose a setting from the Bit depth drop-down list to specify the number of bits that should be used to store each sample.
4. Choose a setting from the Channels drop-down list to specify the number of channels that will be used in the window.
The maximum number of channels recorded depends on the data window where you're recording. For example, if you enabled six inputs on the Record tab in Audio Preferences, you need to record into a six-channel data window to record all six inputs. If you record to a stereo data window, only two inputs will be recorded.
To route inputs to channels in the data window, click a channel number and choose a new input port from the menu.
e. Click OK to create the window.
f. Click the Record button on the Transport toolbar. The Record dialog is displayed.
g. From the Method drop-down list, choose Normal.
4. Choose a recording mode from the drop-down list.
5. Type a number in the Start box to specify where you'd like recording to begin in the data window. Recording will begin at the cursor position by default.
6. To determine which inputs are recorded, type a value in the Channels box. For example, you could type 1-4 to record channels 1 through 4, or type 1,
3, 4 to record only channels 1, 3, and 4.
7. Click the Record button in the Record dialog when you're ready to start recording.
8. Click the Stop button to stop recording.
9. Click the Close button to close the Record dialog when you're finished.
