Q: I was recording a small video session with guitar and vocals through my audio interface into my DAW software and then out into the video camera. But when I played it back, the audio in the camera had an echo, as if the audio was delayed then recorded again. Any suggestions?
A: It sounds like your audio was being sent to the camera from two places; once directly from the mic inputs on the audio interface and a second time after passing through the DAW software. The DAW software has latency, so there is a delay between the two signals. The solution is to make sure that you’re only monitoring one source from the audio interface; this is usually set in console software that comes with the interface. You’ll probably have best results monitoring the audio interface inputs and muting the returns from your DAW.
