I have a little problem with FL and I suspect it's a cheap, onboard soundcard problem on my laptop.
I can't use a mic to record and playback a song on my headphones (or even laptop speakers) at the same time. If I want to use a mic, I have to switch to Asio4ALL on FL, but I get no playback.
For this reason, I end up having to put the song on my iPod and playing to that, but my workflow is severely hindered this way because I end up switching devices on FL.
If it's worth noting, I can't even record songs in audio clips from within my laptop on MSN. I used to be able on my desktop, but never on this laptop.
Should I get an external sound card?
Another question. I have a Lexicon Alpha thing that I use to record stuff with but the quality is awful. It sounds alright when it's clean, but the second I turn on distortion, it starts cracking and stuff. Will getting a virtual amp fix my problem without compromising quality?
