Default Re: Recording Roldand V-Drums.

smalltooledfool, the lack of any headroom with the line in input of consumer soundcards is what causes the distortion if you raise the volume too high. The signal being received is too hot and I don't think there's a work around other than lowering the output from the module as far as possible before feeding it into the PC, then routing the sound through powered speaker that can go to 11.

An investment in an audio interface will serve you well in the long run. Besides increased fidelity from your recordings, you will also witness less latency (ie delay between the time when you strike the drumpad, the signal is recorded and the sound is output from your speakers).
