Signal Interference [Part II]
I have Logitech z-4i speakers for my computer, which I've had since about 2005. The speaker system comes with a control pod for volume and bass knobs, and also has jacks for headphones and microphone.
Getting to my point, the headphone jack has been malfunctioning for about a year. When I plug in my headphones whilst playing audio, often the audio plays as if it is instrumental (the centre tracks have been removed leaving the left and right panned centre), or in the case of mono audio there is nothing at all. I have to twist the headphone cable until I get a satisfactory sound from the headphones, and it is quite a frustrating endeavour.
This was made on Mixcraft 8, with my computer keyboard used as a MIDI controller. The track is in 7/4 time.
The lyrics were recited by Microsoft Sam, and I recorded it from Speakonia twice. On one channel, you have him speaking at the lowest pitch, whilst on the right he is speaking at the highest.
Something's wrong with my headphones jack
I hardly seem to get the right sound
So I'm twisting the cable round and round
A little to the left
A little to the right
It's difficult to achieve the sound I want
Searching for a needle in a haystack
I swear the jack is the problem
Sometimes the left and right are louder than the middle
Other times the centre is cancelled out
And sometimes I hear nothing at all
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
