Ive been trying to record some bass and drum tracks I have in MP3 format in Reaper. Ive tried several different methods of recording in real time and copy and pasting. It all plays back distorted no matter what level I record it at. I dont have any effects enabled and even tried recording some prerecorded tracks and still it all plays back horribly distorted. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be.
What's your setup? If you're using your computer's built-in input, it's probably a mic line-in, which will probably distort easily.
