Music, MIDI Recording and locking down
Currently we are facing several problems in our music dept.
Setup - 12 standalone XP PC's with keyboards connected from k'board audio out into PC line\mic in and recording using Audacity. Each PC has a double headphone jack out so two students can listen.
Problems - Almost every single lesson we have to go in and reconnect the audio cables from keyboards into PC, change back sound settings in XP to input=line in, change preferences in Audacity that have been changed etc...
It doesn't take long to figure out the problems and sort them but when there's 7-8 not working it takes most of the lesson and the lessons wasted=unhappy music teacher.
Do other people have similar problems and how do you overcome them?
