Right-click on the volume thing in your taskbar, and select "recording devices". This will open a dialog box with four tabs. Make sure the second tab "Recording" is selected. There you should see your microphone, with a bar showing if it is receiving sound or not. You can also check its properties here. If your system allows "Monitoring" that will echo the ...

The Solution See if you can buy a TRRS to TRS connector. Don't push the plug all the way in (as I already mentioned above). Read on for a bit of explanation... TRS and TRRS Jacks I'm afraid you won't be able to fix the problem by software. There are two types of jacks: Those headsets have a three-way jack, with a tip, two rings and a sleeve (left, ...

Just found a solution for this: First, Close your browser or any other programs that are using your microphone. Open Regedit Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk Plugin] In this section it should have a string value named "audio-flags" with a value of 3 Change this value to one so it reads like "audio-flags"="1" ...

In Windows 7: 1) Right click on the speaker icon in your system tray (bottom right of your screen). Go to recording devices. 2) Locate your microphone in the list. I am assuming it is not disabled as you mentioned examples of it working previously. Right click, go to properties. 3) Switch to the "Listen" tab, check off "Listen to this device". While ...

In my Windows 7, there is a "Stereo Mix" in recording devices. Just choose that as default recording device and/or "default communicating device"(I don't know the exact name; it's in the context menu). Then any program which uses this device will catch what you can hear through the speakers. In Windows XP it should be the same name. However, it depends on ...

In Windows 7 is slightly different from Windows XP I had to check the "Listen to this device" box in the Microphone properties

The global fix for this issue (i.e. not a piped solution running in the foreground) is more or less described in the article linked from Archon, but I keep forgetting and ending up back at this page so I'll provide a summary: pactl load-module module-loopback latency_msec=1 This command will load the loopback module and enable global loopback of all ...

I use the following command (found at: http://efreedom.com/Question/3-127276/Play-Mic-Speakers-Ubuntu-Karmic): pacat -r --latency-msec=1 -d alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo | pacat -p --latency-msec=1 -d alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo Where: alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo is your input device ...

The Mac Mini's line-in port is a line-level input. That means it's not providing any power to the device, so an unpowered computer mic is not going to work. You need something to pull the mic-level input of the mic up to line-level, like a mixer or certain types of powered mics. Alternatively, you can use something like the iMic, or any USB mic/headset ...

Bad grounding affecting the analog circuitry in the microphone-preamp-ADC portion which then gets encoded in the digital signal sent to the computer. Microphones tend to have ground shielding. Having it connected to the computer guarantees the integrity of that shield. Having it plugged into a hub, especially a cheap one doesn't guarantee that you have a ...

Your operating system does not have anything to do with that. What counts is what your interface can do. The thing you plug your microphone into. Where this interface gets its power from is not important here. Maybe it's something like this: Computer → USB power → Audio Interface → Phantom Power → Microphone But it could also be like this: ...

"Line-in" is not synonymous with "Mic." You either need an amplifier to bring the mic signal up to line levels or a USB microphone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_level

I am unsure exactly what you mean, however, if you are saying that what you say in to your microphone is coming out of the speakers then do the following: Right click on the audio icon near the clock. Click "Recording Devices" Double click on your microphone Device. Click the "Listen" tab. make sure that "Listen to this device" is unchecked. If you are ...

When Skype is focused, Command+Shift+M toggles the microphone. Ctrl+Alt+Command+­­ ↑ also mutes the microphone for me, and works globally. However, it's not a toggle; as noted below, it switches to Push To Talk mode, in which the mic is muted by default but will be unmuted as long as Ctrl+Alt+Command+­­ ↑ is pressed. I'm on OS X 10.8, with the ...

You should be able to find an adapter that has two plugs for your computer. Here's one I found by googling, but I can't vouch for the site myself: http://www.showmecables.com/viewItem.asp?idProduct=8183#

(Or: click Start button, write 'device' in the Search area, then select 'Device Manager') Locate your microphone in the list, right click on it and enable. EDIT ...

A simpler approach to your problem might be just to record your speakers. To record anything that comes out of your speakers: Right-click the volume icon and choose "Recording devices". If you don't see "stereo mix": Right-click somewhere in the white area of the recording box, and select "Show Disabled Devices". If you now see "Stereo Mix": Right-click ...

I have a Plantronics Calisto B70 Bluetooth headset that came with Dragon Naturally Speaking (Amazon.com: Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium 11 Bluetooth). If I try using sound recorder, I can hear some crackling noise as well as my voice, so I don't think the quality is great. One time, I was able to get it working 99% accurately with DNS, but since then I ...

Usually this isn't a problem, particularly if you use push to talk rather than voice activated. Feedback may be an issue if you have the mic a long way away (and hence high levels on it to compensate), but i've used the mic from a cheap ($1) headset laying on my desk for the last few years after my old mic (a full studio boom mic) broke, and apart from a ...

That model computer on Acer's website says that it has a webcam, which means it will also have a microphone that you can configure in Skype or whatever other program you want.

You might be able to use something like Adobe Audition to do frequency space editing and remove the beep. This lets you edit at the frequency level so you could mute just the part of the spectrum that the beep is on. Are you using the built-in microphone jack? If so, I suspect that the beep is coming from your hard drive and a poorly designed motherboard ...

A full explanation would be way to long so here is a brief: Wireless audio equipment is currently permitted to operate in the vacant spectrum between UHF television services (520-820 MHz) In Australia we're making the switch from analog television signals to digital signals and the Australian Communications and Media Authority wants to do a "Restack" of ...

Yes it may be possible but with out knowing the headphone it's hard to tell. Assuming your headphone is both a mic and speakers, and the other end is using either a jack or a mini-jack, you'll need to see how many black lines are around the connector. 1, 2 or 3. In music, 1 means mono and 2 stereo. The third is for 'other', in this instance most likely a ...

First off, let's rule out the headset. Plug the headset directly into the motherboard. Personally, I don't think that the monitor works in the way you are expecting it to. I'm not sure, but I don't know if HDMI is enough of an audio-out for the monitor to send it back to the PC, or if the PC knows what to do with the audio it's sending back, as video ...

This will not work. 'Stereo mix' is a virtual recording device that uses the output of your sound card as its signal, so any audio playing on your computer can be captured from that recording device. Although this feature is often used to record 'what I'm hearing', it requires that what you're hearing originated from your sound card. In this setup, a ...
